. Violet H e m i n g, distinguished,
New York star, arrived here early
yesterday afternoon from Chicago,
where she has been rehearsing for
the dramatic season, in which she
is to co-star with Tom Powers, now
playing in the Theatre guild pro-
duction of "He." She remained a
short time before going on to De-
troit for the week-end.
"For' the last week," Miss Heming
said, "Ihave been working with Mr.
Powers, where he is concluding his
season with the Theatre guild at
the, Blackstone theatre., We areI
both tremendously keen on the two
plays we are doing together as the
final bills of the dramatic season
here. 'Arms and the Man,' of course
is an old play for Tom Powers, as
he played Catain Bluntschli for
four months with the Theatre
guild. My part of Raina, however,
is new for me. 'Private Lives,' na-
turally, is new for both of us..
"4f course, no one in New York
can understand how Mr. Hender-
son secured the rights to do 'Pri-
vate Lives," which has been pre-
sented only in London and New
York. Miss Heming continued. "It!
is rather staggering to think that3
Ann Arbor will be the third city
in the world to see the Noel Cow-
ard comedy.
"As Mr. Powers and I have been
rehearsing the play in my hotel

suite in Chicago, it seems one of
the most delightful comedies I
have ever played. Next to Mr.
Coward himself, I can imagine no
one betters suited to the role of
Eloyt Chase int PrivateLives' than
Mr. Powers. His dry and brilliant
wit is really priceless in the part."
Miss Heming expressed the in-
bention of attending the Thursday,
night performance of "The Way of
the World," which opens tomorrow
night as the third play of the sea-
"I am told," she said, "that
Blanche Yurka gave a superb per-
formance in the 'Electra.' She is,
of course, supreme in emotional
roles, but she is also extraordinary
as a comedienne. I mean it very
sincerely when I say that I regard
her as one of the most charming
friends that I have and one of the
few really great actresses on the

felony and two counts, of misde--
meanor, and 'alleged a Government

gradually widening into a solid ex-

soon be burdened by the persons
and baggages of students bound
for all torty-eight states.
. Airplanes will carry a larger pro-
portion of those home-ward bound

yesterday by several lines. Low

Religion and University Mind'
Is Topic of La Rue's
Address Today.
The major problem of modern
civilization, based mainly on a dis-
cussion of three books of the pres-
ent day, will be the subject of a
sermon today by Dr. Frederick B.
Fisher, pastor of the First Metho-

dominant thing of today."

art Chase's "Men and Machines,"
Charles Beard's "The Rise of Amer-
i c a n Civilization," and Michael
Pupin's scientific work on "The

will be no formal program.
At the Unitarian church,. Prof.
Carl D. LaRue, of the botany de-
partment, will speak on "Religion

ruary during religious emphasis

ligious philosophy and which was
signed by 19 professors in 19 differ-
ent departments of the University.
Communion will be given at St.
Andrew's Episcopal church at 8

Refueling of Rocket Planes Will
Take Place 600 Miles Up
in Stratosphere.
BERLIN, June 6-(/P)-How rocket
planes, propelled beyond the strA-
osphere, or outer layer of the at-
mosphere, Could be rescued from
circling the earth indefinitely has
been worked out by enthusiastic
theorists of the propulsion motor
The Verein fuer Raumschiffahrt,
or Society for Space Ship Travel, is
a natural center for such calcula-
tions and its enthusiasts contend
that to get the full effect of recoil
motors the missile or shipwould be
sent 600 miles from the earth.

At that distance centrifugal force
would balance the pull of gravity
and a machine would become, in
effect, an asteroid, going round and
round the world until kingdom
It is proposed that use should be
made of this fact by establishing a
super-terrestrial fueling station,
built up of rockets separately
launched from the earth and
"hooked up" after arriving at the
asteroid level.
Each rocket unit would be shot
upward with a load of fuel, oxygen
and other service supplies, but with
just enough power to reach the
00-mile level.
