Singing, Dancing Unnecessary.
Because of the nature of the play
of which Margaret O'Brien is au-
thoress, it is not necessary that the
tryouts be especially talented in
singing and dancing. There are
several character parts which do
not require the usual type of tryout.
Jean Botsford is general chair-
man of the play and Margaret Fer-
rin is assistant chairman. Barbara
Braun is In charge of the finances.
The books of Willa Sibert Cather
make us want tj know their author.
The fact that she has been ac-
claimed the greatest living Ameri-
can nbvelist does not seem to make
her tho less approachable. One can
hardly imagine being on friendly
terms gwith TheodoreeDreiser or
daring to expose oneself to the:
searching satyrism of S i n c 1 a i r
Lewis. And yet when we turn to
the third member of America's
great trio we have a warm sense of
affection, a feeling that we too,
might be included in Willa Cather's
group of friends.
One reason for this is well ex-
p r e s s e d by Elizabeth Sergeant
where she says that Willa'Cather's
works are always transcriptions of
friendships for people or places
she has known. I, is indeed true
that she knows the life that she
creates, and that the profundity of
her vision gives the impression that
she sees character in its entirety.
Miss Cather's understanding of
the people and environment of the l
great middle west is due to the factt
that her girlhood was spend on the
Nebraska prairies. She went to Red
Cloud Nebraska as a small child,
growing up among the people who
now'fill the pages of her books. She
had no formal education until she
entered high school in Red Cloud.
She attended the University of Ne-
braska where she supported her-
self by doing newspaper work, and
'graduated at the age of nineteen.
After working on a Pittsburgh
paper as dramatic critic she was
offered a position as assistant edi-
tor of M.cClure's magazine. She re-
mained in this position until she
had saved enough to give us her
work and devote her time to writ-
Success came to'her; not as sud-
,den popurarity, but as recognition
of noble achievement growing out
of sympathetic observation and
.fidelity to a literary ideal. In each
work Miss Cather has produced
something quite different from its'
predecessor, and yet each is equal-
ly artistic in its individual way.
"One of \Ours" was the Pulitzer
Prize novel of 1922. Equally worth-
while are. "My Autonia," "The Lost
Lady," and "Death Comes for the
Miss Cather has had degrees con-
ferred upon her by the University
of Nebraska, the University of
Michigan, the University of Cali-
fornia, Columbia, Princeton, and
Yale, in redognition of her out-
standing contribution to American
Lead Style Trend
DAILY ILLINI-Pyjamas have cer-
tainly had ups and downs over
their period of the last couple of
years. Pyjamas for dining and
dancing have lost ground. Wmen
have come to the conclusion that
they are more alluring in skirs.
But for the beach and for tennis
there is much to be said in their
favor. Schiaparelli, champion of
the bi-furcated, offers a new sug-
gestion, t h e dress-length sport
trousers. They are cut on tailored
lines with little extra fullness. Also
there is 'a skirt worn over them as
part of the ensemble.
