Ten Selected to Head Varion,
Committees; Ruth Oakes
Will Direct.
Selection of the winning stage de-
sign and story, and the appoint-
merit of the committee for the Cos-
mopolitan club's eighth annual In-
ternational Night, which will take
place this year on Tuesday, March
10, in Hill auditorium, was an-
nounced yesterday by William G.
Jacobs, Grad., F & C, treasurer of
the club and general chairman of
the program.
Fourteen settings and stories were
submitted in the contest for the
design of this year's International
Night program. From this group, a
committee, under the direction of
Mrs. Ruth Anne Oakes, who for
several years has been an active
participant in Play Production and
dramatic activities on the campus
and who has been named to direct
the program, senected the idea sub-
mitted by Alan Handley, '32. Exact
details as to the setting and the
story were not given out but it will
be similar to the last year's pro-
gram with a number of acts con-
nected by a definite story instead
of the grouping of vaudeville acts
as had been the custom in previous
years.
Tcn Named to Committee.
The committee for the Interna-
tional Night program this year was
named by Jacobs and will comprise
10 members. They are: tickets,
Maida Kuo, '33; stage, Ewe Cheong,
'31E; program. Elsie Baukman
Grad.; posters, W. P. Lei, '33A; pho-
toraphs, Joseph P. Akau, '31; pub-
licity, David M. Nichol, '32; proper-
ties, Elizabeth M. Norton, '33; eligi-
bility, Behire A. Refik, Grad.;
speakers, William Compton, '31;
and floor, Chanan S. Gill, '33E.
The program, given each year
under the direction of the Cosmo-
politan club, had its beginning in
the "AllNatons Revue," presented
in1915 under the direction of Prof.
J. A. C. Hildner, of the German
department, who has been active
ever since in the work of the club.
It was on this "All-Nations Re-
vue" that Albertina Rasch, widely
known toe dancer, appeared and
her Ann Arbor debut was heralded
by the first electric sign to be used
in the city.
Appealed to Campus.
More than 100 students partici-
pated in this first program and al-
though it was not a financial suc-
cess, its appeal to the campus was
strong and the Cosmopolitan club
was encouraged to produce the
"Magic Carpet" in 1916. It was
written and directed by Prof. J.
Raleigh Nelson, of the department
of engineering English.
Succeeding years have witnessed
the steady growth and develop-
ment of this annual program until
it has been possible to produce
some spectacular extravaganza. In
1923, the club adopted the name of
"International Night" program.
From the first, these annual pro-
ductions have been for the purpose
of bringing together the large num-
ber of foreign students, who are
registered with the University, rep-
resenting most of the countries of
the world today, and to weld them
together into an active unit of im-
portance on the campus. In addi-
tion to promoting international
welfare and goodwill, the annual
program forms a large part of the
sozial life during the year of the
foreign students.
'Festival of Eldorado' Given.
Last year's presentation, "The
Festival of Eldorado," was built
round the idea of a mythical coun-
try where the peoples of all the
nations would gather "to laugh at
one another's follies and glory in
one anothers' triumphs."
More than 50 artists from 11 dif-
ferent nations combined their tal-
ent in the show. Lavish settings
and an elaborate musical score aid-

ed in the staging of a brilliant ex-
travaganza with a large number of
choruses. Authentic costumes add-
ed much to the general effect.
Sunderland Attends

Prof. Edson P. Sunderland, of the
Law school, left yesterday for Chi-
cago for a conference with a com-
mittee of the Chicago Bar associa-
tion regarding the draft of a re-

It" thod by which the people of
Galicia were becoming more self-
eon scious'
Galicia is the name given to the
northwestern district of Spain. The
1Galielans, who are more Germanic
than Latin, have always been
looked down upon by the other
.paniards. They have, however,
oroduced many great poets and
.riters, Eddy declared. The writ-
ings have been in the Germanic
ctain and consequently the Span-
s.h people have given them little
-otico. Now, however, several stu-
dents of Galicia are writing a num-
ber of works in the popular Span-
ish style discussing the Galician
literature.

Dr. Lee R. Dice and Assistants
Subject Animals to
Examinations.
By Morton Frank, '33.
The aristocrats of the in o u s e
world are being subjected to exam-
ination--and Dr. Lee R. Dice, cura-
tor of mammals in the University
museum of zoology, is the cause of
their humiliation.
Under his direction, several as-
sistants, both men and women, are
preparing an exhaustive analysis of
the American field mouse. The
common house mouse, so common
to the knowledge of ye comely fe-
male, is not being included in the
research-for he is an alien from
Europe.
"The American mice are of the
first families," Dr. Dice remarked
yesterday, "and they remain almost
constantly in the open fields. Oc-
casionally, in the winter, some of
their number migrate cityward, and
take abode in dwellings on the city
outskirts."
The work of Dr. Dice and his as-
sistants has as its purpose a deter-

mination of the relations of the
various species and sub-species of
the field mouse. Each mammal un-
der examination has a number pe-'
culiar to himself, and a record card
containing an account of its birth,
number of children, death, and
other data pertinent to its biogra-
phy.
After being killed painlessly by
ether, the mouse is skinned. His
skin then undergoes the consecu-
tive operations of stretching, dry-
ing, measuring, and depositing in
an envelope, which is in turn stored

in one of many iing cases for Dr. Hazel M. Losn, of the astron-
