Ted Robinson Points Out That
Imitations Show Author's
"The keenest criticism is in par-
ody," said Mr. Ted Robinson in his
lecture before the Ann Arbor Won-
en's Club given yesterday after-
noon in the Michigan Leagueaball-
room. "If you can take an author
and write a parody of his style you
have given him the best kind of
criticism if it is well done."
Mr. Robinson is well known in,
literary circles as he has been lit-
erary critic on the Cleveland Plain
Dealer for the past eleven years.
He is the author of two books of
verse and a lecturer on literary
Criticism by use of the parody
touches upon the weaknesses of the
author's style, believes Mr. Robin-
son. Parody capitolizes upon the
errors, peculiarities, and fads which
make the author individual, he
said. During his lecturer Mr. Rob-
inson parodied numerous famous
authors including: Milton, Words-
worth, Kipling and others. "One
cannot parody Shakespeare or Ho-
mer,." said Mr. Robinson. "There are
few authors which cannot be imi-

F amous Women
-by Ivalita Glascock---
An especial favorite with Ann
Arbor audiences is the Ketropoli-
tan Prima ' Donna, Rosa Ponselle.
Born in Meriden, Conn., the daugh-:
ter of a Naples coal dealer, she was
once known as Rosa Ponzillo. She
began her musical career by play-
ing in a local nickelodeon for $12
a week. Occasionally she- would
sing a few songs, and through her
singing she received $50 a week in
Mellone's restaurant in New Haven.
Carl Dreher, giving a description
of her in, "Radio Broadcast," says
"Ponselle is. a handsome, robustly
built young woman who looks the
Prima Donna, and would get a- seat
in the subway even in this unchiv-
alrous age, if she ever rode in it.,"
Another critic writes, "She has
heavy Italian features difficult to
disguise. But her voice, critics al-
most without exception say, is the
greatest to be heard today."
It hardly seems possible that the
first American to ever make her
debut in the leading role with Ca-
ruso began her stage appearance
in vaudeville. She and her sister
Carmela, also a member of the Met-
ropolitan Opera company, now, had
three years on the Keith Vaudeville
circuit doing a sister act. Carmela
started to study seriously and her.
teacher, William Thorner, happen-
ed to hear Rosa. Thorner inter-
rupted her singing of the Castodiva
aria from "Norma" to call in his
friend Caruso, who prophesied that
in two years Rosa would be singing
with him.
Ponselie joined the Metropolitan
Opera, in 1928 and it is said that
at her debut she weighed 205
pounds. Bicycle-riding has some-
what improved the situation. She
dngs in what is commonly termed
the "Grand Style," and has made
possible the revival of many old
operas with such excruciatingly
difficult roles that only a person
with remarkable character and
physical cndurance as well as pow-
erful voice could undertake them.


Embroidery Featured on Frocks
of Tailored Lines; All
Hues Popular.
By B. A. C., '34.
Woolen dresses are especially
comfortable on days that are rainy
and just cold enough to be in-'
pleasant, and never has there been
a season when bright, attractivel
dresses of soft wool materials weref
.more popular.,
Woolen. embroidery, too has .as-
sumed prominence when used ei-
ther on silk or wool dresses. Bright;
yarn flowers and motive designs
on a background of black are ef-
A dress of bottle-green claimed
our attention on a shopping tour.
recently. It was very simply de-
signed, the flared skirt hanging
from a narrow waist-band. A min-
iature scarf effect followed the
neck-line, and terminated in the
extreme right of the neck in a
tailored. bow. On the tabs of the
bow were embroidered flowers of
white. The rather wide belt of the
same green wool as the dress had
a huge tailored bow extending al-,
most the whole width of the back.
On it were white woolen flowers.
The beret of green wool, was
tucked in at the back and fasten-
ed with- a tiny bow. The mascot
scarf was embroidered with large
white flowers, and wa salso of bot-
tle green.
Since we are on the subject of
woolen dresses, there -is a brown
one we'd like to mention. It is one
of the sweater type dresses, and
makes use of the brown and or-
ange combination. The skirt is at-
tached to a yoke, and is laced on
the left side. The sweater starts at
the neck to be a very pale shade
of yellowish orange, and varyh g
through the various shades of or-
ange, ends in being the same dark
brown as the skirt.
The neck-line is square, and
through it are laced three yarn

cords of yellow, orange, and brown.'
There is a turban to go with this
one, too, and it is of a mixed brown
and orange weave.
A strange combination was one of
a light rose and brown. The skirt
was brown of a coarse weave, the
under bodice was pink, Sthrough
which was drawn an occasional
thread of brown. The very minute
cut-away jacket was of brown, and
was ornamented _with 'rose and
brown buttons. A row of the same
tiny mixed buttons were used on
the sleeves, and down the front
& the bodice.
Another woolen dress was a very
delicate blue. The sleeves were full
to the elbow, and then like so. many
of the newer ones,2 were tight-flit-
ting to the. wrist. Crystal buttons
were used on the cuffs and at the

Straw Will Be Combined With
Felt; Navy to Be Popular
as Usual.
By J. M. W., '34.
The season in millinery fashion
is brimful of novelities, according1
to Mrs. Harrison of Jacobson's Style
Shoppe who is at present in New
York for her spring shopping. New
brins, the treatment of the crown,
the chinchin types, the beret ideas
and the turbans"'w ll be noted. All
have their dips t and twists, and
they conform to the contour Of the
head as never before.
Novelty weaves in straw with a
wide variation in materials will be
used. Rough, smooth, dull, bright,
and natural straws will be featur-
ed. The crystaline straw, soft pli-
able material, will be fashioned in
the turban types. In the better
hats the montelupo, charmeuse,
and Italian Milan as well as num-'
erous other materials including the
sharskin and the racello will be
seen. Felts, too, will get the usual
play this season, being especially
popular combined with straw.
The Watteau type is a style re-
cently introduced. Narrow brims.
with high backs give the silhouette
effect in this new style that is be-
ing favored. The. Tyrolian" types,
high in the back with a back trim-
ming of quill standing erect giving
added height to 'the wearer is an-
other mode which will be worn.
Sailor types with their dips and

Colors will enter into the spirit
of the new showing. Black, nas-
sau, and blue will predominate.
Navy blue is expected to become im-
portant. Brown will be seen less.
Concentration is to be made on

Trimmings 'will hold to the pin,
self trims, tailored ideas. In the
latst showings flowers are playing
an important part. They are ap-
pearing in all variations. Bunches
of smalL fruitti, highly lacquered, are'
being stressed. In fact, anything
that has the lacquered appearance
to go in combination with the lus-
ter straws and cellophane mater-
ials. Gay feathers and quills will
be seen. Crystals are being used as
