Adaptation of Marionette
Puts Comic Touch on
Program.
A*

Act

To the tune of "The Minstrels,"
by Debuss, a group of eight girls
will caper and mock in the newest
dance added to the already gener-
ous program comprising the Fresh-
man Pageant. This dance, falling
as it does under the head of the
interpretive group, is the comic
touch which the pageant formerly
lacked, and is an adaptation of a
children's puppet show or marion-
ette act, in which the girls partici-
pating are dolls on a stage, garbed
in ridiculously typical costumes,
and acting or dancing with a stilted
precision.
The new dance group, which was
formed last week, ,has held one
practice session under Miss White's
supervision, and the eight fresh-
man women taking part have been
chosen. The act is a farce, in which
the characters are mock marion-
ettes.
Hilda Kirby plays the part of the
heroine in -a pink dress and yellow
.wig. Jacqueline Snell is the heavy
villian. Barbara Sutherland is the
ldier and hero. Virginia Cluff is
one clown; Jane Brucker is the
other, and they provide much of
the unspoken comedy.
The other characters are Billie
Griffiths, who plays the father, and
Margaret Palfrey, the policeman.
The group is scheduled to appear
late in the Freshman Pageant, as
a highlight used toaccentuate the
serio-dramatic dances that precede
'it.
According to the dance chairman,
the rehearsals are proceeding re-
markably well. The groups partici-
pating have been cut slightly, and
the -entire cast -will be announced
sh rtly.-
The newest innovation in the way
of accessories to the pageant is the
scheme of having two tiny fresh-
man women, dressed unobtrusively, I
present sandwich signs . between
dances, in place of program or
spoken announcements. The bear-
ers will be Betty Wunsch and some
freshman not yet announced.
Landscape Painting
Praised at Meeting
by Miss A. Adams
"Landscape painting is the high-
est expression of culture and art,"
stated Miss Adelaide Adams in a
recent speech on "Oriental Land-
scape Painting".to the Landscape
club. She spole mostly concern-
ing Chinese painting, because the
field is much too great to cover in
its entirety. She said that China
was the first to develop this art;
it was not found in Europe until
the nineteenth century. The Chin-
ese have no fear of nature such as
the Europeans, and so are much
better able to express it.
The pictures are made in two
different types, the long hanging
and the scrole. The latter is kept
and. cherished much as we would
keep a beautifully illustrated book.
When a picture is hung, it is
changed from time to time, and
is usually the main attraction in
the room, according to Miss Adams.
The work is done on silk or pa-
per. The three most outstanding
technical features of the Chinese
work are: the line or brush stroke,
the rhythmic composition, and the
perspective horizontal planes, Miss
Adams says. The color is usually
a monotone of grey and black, and
ink that looks wet is used to pro-
duce an unusual effect. Miss Ad-
ams used slides to illustrateher
lecture' which made it much more
interesting.
A trip into the Western part of
Michigan for over Memorial Day
was discussed by the Landscape
club, and the meeting adjourned
with a short social hour.

Virginia M. fHa mister
Pr1sets Graduation
Recital at League
By A. W. '34.
Outstanding musical talent was
in evidence at the graduation piano
recital given by Virginia M. Hmis-
ter, '32SM, Tuesday afte.noon in
the Lydia Mendelssohn theatre of
the League building. A certainI
pleasing attitude of performance
made the program espevially at-
tractive.
Miss Hamister made arather
poor start, however, in her inter-
pretation of the exercise-like Pre-
lude and Fugue by Bach-Lizst. A
really interesting composition was
delivered mechanically and without
enthusiasm as though the player
were stale in its rendition, and the
pedalling was blurry in places. Her
memorization of the composition.
as of others on the prog am, was
excellent and thorough.
Exceptional technique mastery
was in evidence in the second num-
ber, Chopin's Sonata, Op. 35, which,
with the Farantelle of Lizst, was
presented with the most enthus-
iasm of any of the numbers. In the
Sonata, Miss Hamister showed ab-
solute self-confidence and concen-
tration. The chromatic passages in
the Sherzo movement were deliv-
ered with clarity and exacting pre-
cision.;
The March Funebre movement of
the Sonata was not quite differen-
tiated from the fast tempo of the
first two parts. The climax of the
recital and the number in whch
Miss Hamister really showed her
musical ability was the Presto or
last movement. The fast but quiet
passages were most excellently
played and with an artist-like non-
chalance that charmed the audi-
ence.
The four remaining numbers were
well interpreted intellectually. Es-
pecially pleasing was the ever-pop-
ular Resphigi "Nocturne" with its
emotional content. The program
ended with the spectacular Lizst
"Tarantelle."

A. A. Milne's comedy "Meet The
Prince" opens tonight at the Lydia
Mendelssohn theatre. It is Com-
edy club's latest presentation to the
world of campus drama.
The play throughout is high com-
edy; the lines are especially clever.
In this comedy, Milne has gather-
ed together a typical group of peo-
ple at a dinner party and has made
it very interesting. The conversa-
tion itself is not particularly
weighty; it is the inflection of the
voice, and accompanying stage
business which makes it so effect-
ive. The humour of the situation
comes fromu the complete self-satis-
faction of the characters.
Women in the cast of "Meet The
Prince" include: Veneta Cook, '34,
Sally Pierce, '35, Helen Dooley, '32,
Burnette Bradley, '32, Virginia Rob-
Urts, '35 and Frances Manchester,
'34
The remarkable characteristic
of women in the cast is that they
have all maintained such a high
scholastic standard. The total num-
ber of honor points for the five
women is approximately one hun-
dred and sixty, or well over a "B"
average. Miss Bradley is a member
of Phi Kappa Phi, national honor-
ary organization.
