any concerted action by the Eng-

work to their disadvantage.

IKKREUTZBERG AND GEORGI.
The announcement coming from
the Mendelssohn Theatre that Miss
Loomis has been able to secure
Harold Kreutzberg and his partner
Yvonne Georgi, sensational ex-
pressionistic dances of the mod-
ern German school for a two night
appearance in Ann Arbor has met'
with enthusiastic response. Many
have bemoaned the fact that ex-
ponents, good &r bad, of the in-
creasingly important art of the
dance have never found their way
to this town. That the introduc-
tion of this art to Ann Arbor should
#be in the capable hands of such well-
known artists as Kreutzberg and
Georgi is nothing short of a happy
miracle.
