These acts include the famous
Russian Balalaika orchestra, two
Mexican dancing girls from the
exclusive Chapultapec club in De-

girls who will present someof the
folk songs and dances of their na-

the organization and Elizabeth

Since that time, the organization
has grown and has beicome a social
center, not only for the women but
also for the men of Detroit's foreign
population. The great demandfor
the services of the unit have
brought forward the possibility that
it may be made an independent or-
ganization in the near future.
For the past three years, the In-
stitute has provided through the
foreign groups in Detroit, supple-
mentary talent for the Internation-
al Night programs.

Some of the women who will take
part in these productions come
from the foreign centers in Detroit
and have more than amateur rating
as performers. The club is also in-

Young Women's Christian associa-
