undertaken as difficult a part and
feel that is has been exceedingly
beneficial, as there is nothing to
equal the training which playing
parts in Shakespeare's plays gives."
"However, the plays always meant
fouI or five hours daily of hard
work ahead of me, contrary- to roles
{ in productions of less importance.
'Romeo and Juliet' is very difficult
for a college organization to pro-
duce, because school work "must be
kept up, and, in consequence, prac-
tices are held late at night and can
not be given all of one's energy.
There are professional Shakespear-
ean actors who spend years learn-
ing one role in order to fully real-
ize its possibilities, so a company
that has only a short time to mas-
ter the characterizations and lines
cannot do the play full justice."
"I want to play the role of Juliet
again when I have had more ex-
perience and can give it concen-
trated effort and undivided atten-
-tion," was Miss Todd's concluding
remark.
IPan-Hellenic Offers
Facilities of Hotel
University women who are plan-
ning to spend the vacation in New
York might be interested to know
of the "Panhellenic," which is a
fairly new hotel and home partic-
ularly designed to please college
women, not only those who are
members of Greek letter societies,
as is the general opinion.
The Panhellenic is a building
which extends 28 stories high and
has 392 rooms, all tastefully .decor-{
ated.
Such phrases as "the blade room,
a salon in pastel tones, scene of
many a quiet tete-a-tete," or "men
callersamay. be entertained in the
Solarium or on the surrounding ter-
race," or "the Oasis (a dining room)
a .symphoniy in green and silver,"
are among those used in circulars
from the hotel. It is highly recom-
mended by all who have been there,
and the prospective New Yorker,
might remember to visit it.

FRENCH COMEDY
TO FEATURE TWO
LOCAL ALUMNAE
Jacques Duval's smart French
comedy, "Her Cardboard Lover,"
which opens Monday, April 21, im-
mediately after spring vacation, in
the Lydia Mendelssohn theatre, is
attracting considerable interest due
to the fact that it will return to the
stage two professional actresses in-
timately associated with women's
activities on the campus.
Amy Loomis, at present director
of the Y'ydia Mendelssohn theatre,
is featured in 'the leading role of
Simone Lagorce, originally played
in New York by Jeanne Eagels. The
part will show ,lvfiss Loomis as a
beautiful Parisienne who is divorc-
ed from a philandering husband
whose fascination, however, she
still strongly feels. To protect her-
self she engages a gigolo to pose
as her lover-by-proxy, only to dis-
cover her "cardboard" lover not so
cardboard after all.
Following her graduation in the
class of 1922, before which time she1
figured prominently in student pro-
ductions, Miss Loomis appeared in
New York with Eva LeGalhiene and,
Jane Cowl. In 1924 she returned
to Ann Arbor to direct the Junior'
Girls' Play, "Castles in Spain"; and.
again in 1925, "Becky Behave," inI
which Minna Miller had the lead- I
ing role. For the next two seasons
she appeared as leading lady with
Robert Henderson's company in
Rockford, Illinois, and in the sum-
mer seasons undeir the auspices of
the Summer Session.
Another former director of the
Junior Girls' Play is being brought I
back to Ann Arbor in Minna Miller,
'26, who will have the role of Ali-
bine, Simone's clever French maid.
Miss Miller appeared last spring in
"The Last of Mrs. Cheyney," and
is remembered for her clever work
in campus productions while a stu-
dent on the campus.

for Foreign Women

Discussions of the different coun-
tries represented by women an the
campus have formed the back-
ground of the work of the World
Fellowship committee of the League
for this semester. However, the
program was varied this week when
the group entertained several for-
eign women at an Easter party giv-
en in the League Cave.
"It is hoped that in this way the
committee can further acquaint-
anceship between the foreign and
American women students in both
a serious and a social way," stated
Valborg Egeland, '30, chairman of
the committee, which operates un-
der the auspices of the Women's
League.
Janet Michael, '31, and Jessie
Winchell, '31, were in charge of the
party, which was decorated in keep-
ing with the spirit of the season.
