group is comprised wholly of stu-
dents, both for the technical and
acting phases of production. The
casts for the plays are made up of
students enrolled in courses in Play
Production. The production of one
play every week for the duration of
the summer session makes ib pos-
sible for the student-actors to have
a nearly professional experience.
Generally casts rotate each week,
but students are often known to do
"bits" two, weeks in succession.
Stagecraft students handle the
technical work during performance
and assist with the execution of
the sets in the workshop.
The Michigan Repertory Players
was established four years ago at
the instigation of Dean Edward
Krauss, of the Summer Session, and
was founded for the purpose of pro-
viding entertainment to summer
students and townspeople. It was
felt that student actors could serve
the entertainment problem of the
community, and at the same time
find valuable experience for them-
selves in their work.
Mr. Windt with Prof. Chester M.
Wallace, of the Carnegie Institut
of Technology's drama school, were
directors for the first season, which
was four years ago, in the summer

Northern Lights Are Most Usual

1. P, Cur is, director of the Uni-
versity observatory. "Although therej
is no particular law governing the
frequency, the aurorac are most
frequent in March and Sptember;
ess frequent in Jtuy and Decem-
ber," he said.
The electrical phelnomenon, very
commonly known as the northern
lights, remained brilliant several
hours Sunday night, and even after
it had disappeared visually, it
affected radios and line telegraphs
in the vicinity. ,
"Aurorae are moderately frequent
'phenomena, there being about 100
of the brightersort observed per
year," said Professor Curtis. "They
are best seen further north, at lati-
tudes of 60 to 70 degrees north of
the equator, but are not very com-
mon at the latitude of Ann Arbor.
This one Sunday night was of un-
usual brilliance for this latitude,
however. It has been found that
they are more frequent at a time
of sun spot maximum; that is, every
"The average height of the bands
and streaks of \an aurora ranges
from 50 to 250 miles above the sur-
face of the earth. A few have been
observed at muc' greater heights
up to 600 miles.
"Although their precise cause is
still somewhat in doubt," Professor
Curtis declared, "they certainly are
caused by some action of the sun,
in connection with the fact that
the earth is a great magnet; such
appearances are alwaysbrighter
and more common near 'the mag-
netic poles of the earth. They have
f been attributed with some prob-
ability to streams of Alpha-rays
shot out from the sun and causing
electrical action and luminescence
in the uppermost, extremely rare
regions of the atmosphere, of the

of the Amcricarn Iheatre.
"These imiversities, eoilews, amd

"are making for Ihemiselves beno1 -

It was witA the founding of the
"little" theatres, says Mr. Robin-
son, "that young American drama-
tists began to learn how to write
real American plays. Thgy learned
not to be afraid to write. about poor
people; not to be afraid of accent
and dialect; learned that the mat-
erials of the American play were
the sticks and stones lying outside
the American door."
Of the plays in the present
volume Mr. Robinson writes: "I
cannot resist praising the high
technical qualities that shine out in
every play. All of these plays have
interested me and one or two have
moved me deeply. . . Thse ten
plays, at any rate, are entirely
American; they could be written
only by Americans and be / ade-
quately acted only by Americans."
In conclusion Mr. Robinson
states: "I know that through uni-
versities and colleges the theatre is
returning and I know of no univer-
sity in which more significant work
's being done than in the University
