of Which Are Songs.
In a "Mosaic of Song and Story,"
Miss Violet V. Vincent, famous dis-
euse, is to appear next Wednesday
night in the Lydia Mendelssohn
theatre, sponsored by Zeta Phi Eta,
national speech society for women
Miss Vircent's program is out-
standing particularly as it is of an
unusual character. 1n speaking of
her work she says: "I am a dis-
euse. The meaning of the word
changes in translation to English.
The diseuse sings. The reader only
speaks. I really do both. The art
of the diseuse goes back to the
days of the troubadors-it is the
art of telling a story through song.
It employs voice, music, pantoriine
and costume, but the story is the
thing. Six of the twelve numbers
I will do are songs. That is why
I like to be called a diseuse. Then
too, the diseuse is rare compared
to other artists("

Learn the Advantages
of Co-Recreation.
Miss Ethel Bowers of the Nation-
al Recreation Association spoke on
"Recreation for Girls and Wdmen"
yesterday morning in Sarah Cas-
well Angell hall before a group of
major women of the physical edu-
cation school and outsiders.
Miss Bowers stressed the point
that women should be able to con-
duct recreational programs for girls
and women. She said, "men cannot
feel the antagonisms and frictions
that come up in women's recrea-
tional problems."
Co-recreation Needed.
"One of the first problems 'to be
f> solved by recreation departments,"
40::: -Miss Bowers pointed out, "is co-
recreation. Girls and boys want to
play together, but very few cities
are helping them to do so. To play
golf and tennis, to dance, bowl,
take part in community dramatics
and music, to go to parties at the
community house, all these things
would go a long way towards estab-
- &lishing wholesome, lifelong com-
radeship between men and women."
Miss Bowers said that the field
of recreation is going to be tre-
mendous, especially on the wom-
an's side. Plans for finding enter-
tainment during leisure hours of
