By James H. Inglis.
An impressive array of dramatic
and musical stars, many of whom
have already won their spurs -by
professional work or by perform-
ances over the radio, have been en-
listed for the principal roles of the
forthcoming Mimes Union opera,
"Robin Hood."
Although only two parts in the
operetta, the sheriff and Will Scar-
let, are being played by persons not
enrolled in the Ujimiv> i:y, the n-
cumbent of practically every part
has had extensive experience on
the concert stage or over the radio.
The feminine lead, Maid Mairon,
is being done by Dorethea Torbeson,
'32SM, who is best recalled to Uni-
versity audiences by her work last
year in the Junior Girls' play,
"Came the Dawn." Miss Torbeson is
.a titian blonde, has what has been
termed a brilliant contralto voice,
and hails from Cadillac.
Among the operettas which she
is conversant with are "The China
Shop," and "Lela Wala." Well
hknown in the Music school for her
frequent appearance in recitals,
she is preparing for a certificate as
a public school music teacher.
In Comedy Club Plays.
One of the most interesting char-
acter roles in the show, Dame Dur-
den, is being done by Frances Billie
Johnson, '32, who has distinguished
erselfin a number of dramatic
parts during the current season..
Besides acting important parts in
Comedy Club's "Streets of New
York," and "Anthony and Anna,"
now'playing, she has been active in
flay Production work. Miss John-
son~ is pro minment in her home town.
Gary, Indiana, for many amateur
theatrical successes.
Friar Tuck, the jovial and rotund
cleric, will be played by Leon Snyd-
er, '32A, who has among other
things a state-wide reputation
earned during a season of touring
under the Butterfield interests. Be-
sides this he has done regular work
over WELM, Battle Creek.
Aside froni music, Snyder has
AINST AR I

SHERIFF

H. C. IOWARD
been instrumental in almost every
major theatrical endeavor of Battle
Creek during the years since his
graduation from high school there.
In his capacity as an architect,
which profession he intends ulti *
mately to enter, he has designed
the stage for the elaborate new
Battle Creek college auditorium and
theatre.
His record includes organizing the
campus players at Battle Creek col-
lege and playing in "The Mikado"
and "The Belle of Barcelona."
Skoog to Play Little John.
Herman Skoog, Spec., has been
past in the role of Little John. For
the past several years a student at
the Rush conservatory in Chicago,
Skoog has sung for several seasons
with the Chicago civic light opera
company. His rich baritone has
been developed through more than
ten years of experience in light op-
era and on the concert stage.
A number of operatic efforts in
Ludington, his home town, have
been lifted above the commonplace
by his vocal technique. After
achieving his A.B. in music the in-
cumbent of the part of Little John
plans to become a'professional
singer or possibly voice instructor.
The only Ann Arbor student to
win a position on the cast is Hope
Eddy, Spec., who graduated from
the literary college in 1927. Miss
Eddy is the co-holder of the posi-
tion of Alan-a-Dale along with L.
Carrey Greiner, Spec.
Each actress was considered so
necessary to the part that it was
decided that the only fair compro-
mise was to allow each to play the
part on two successive nights. Miss
Eddy has always lived in Ann Ar-
bor, was prominent in Ann Arbor
high school's "Pinefore" and has
directed the choir at the church of
Christ for a number of years.
Brown to Have Lead.
As leading man, Robin Hood, the
only representative of the law
school in the cast, George D. Brown,
'34L, has been selected. Brown
completed his undergraduate work
at Mt. Union college in Ohio, where
he managed the glee club and play-
ed tackle on the football team.
His first real contact with Mich-

igan was in the Mt. Union-Mich-
igan game two years ago. Besides
achieving distinction in dramatics
and debating as an undergraduate,
Brown was a regular feature overi
the air every week from WADC, Ak-
ron. His home is in Alliance, Ohio.1
The second feminine lead will be
taken by Helen VanLoon, '32SM, as
Annabel. Miss VanLoon has an en-1
viable record of lyrilliant work in
many branches of the musical art.
'Besides her reputation as a talented,
vocalist, her exceptional piano,
technique won her the coveted hon-
or of champion of greater Detroit
in that field in tfie 1928 competi-
tion.
She is particularly honored in her
home, Highland Park, for a disting-
uished recital given in 1930. In the
entire Detroit area, moreover, hei
name has been identified with pi-
ano work for three years owing to
her popularity in a program broad-
cast weekly over the air from WJR.
Her experience in singing Robim
Hood began in High School and she
has been connected with a number
of light operatic porductions since
then.
Her voice work at the University
is under Professor Hackett and she
has played for the University sym-
phony orchestra since her matricu-
lation. Besides other broadcasting
work, Miss VanLoon has been a fre-
quent artist over the University sta-
tion.
Howard As Sheriff.
Big, deep throated,- H. C. Howard,
veteran director and actor for many
years connected with the company
of DeWolf Hooper, will play the
part of the sheriff. Howard came
to Ann Arbor more than a month
ago, direct from Hooper's "Robin
Hood" company, which was con-
cluding a nation-wide tour in San
Francisco.
Since that time he has spent
most of his waking hours training
principals of the cast and teaching
them some of the results of his fif-
teen years of experience with light
opera, the greater portion of which
has been spent on the DeKoven
"Robin Hood."
Emmet Leib, '33, a tenor from
Jackson, will be seen in the role of
Sir Guy, the "smart alec" little as-
sistant to the sheriff. Leib won sec-
ond honors in a nation-wide popu-
larity contest sponsored by Atwater
Kent and has performed at times
over WJR.
Considerable experience in con-
cert and glee club work in high
school failed to interfere with an
athletic career which includes dis-
tinctions in football and basketball.
At Hillsdale where Leib took the
first two years of his college course
a number of glee club concerts and
dramatic events were enriched by
his voice.

New quarters for the American
Judicature society, now located in
the law school building, will com-
prise a suite of offices on the third
floor of the almost completed
Hutchins hall.
The American Judicature society,
formerly affiliated with the Univer-
sity of Chicago, moved its head-
quarters here last year at the in-
vitation of Henry M. Bates, dean
of the law school, and the regents
of the University. Herbert L. Har-
ley, director of the organization, is
also the editor of the publication
which the society sponsors, "The
Journal of the American Judicature
Society."
The society is the only organ-
ization devoted exclusively, to the
problems of judicial admnistration,
and its interest extends to the en-
lire field of administering justice
throughout the country, according
to Mr. Harley.
The organization performs a
needed function in acquainting
lawyers and judges throughout the
n ation concerning improvements in
judicial administration and new
ideas in this field, it was brought
out by the director. In nearly every
Is1 ate, the society is strongly allied
with the associations of the bar
and with the judicial councils,
where these exist.
Incorooration of the society took
place in 1913, and since 1917 the
journal has been regularly pub-
lished and sent out free to anyone
interested.

Anti-hoarding activities spon-
sored by President Hoover have
reached Ann Arbor, and definite
plans for publicity and promotion
of the campaign are being prepared
by members of the Chamber of
Commerce.
Herbert Silvester, president of the
Chamber' of Commerce, has been
appointed chairman of the cam-
paign in the< seventh district of
Michigan, which includes all of
Washtenaw county except Ypsi-
lanti, by H. T. Ewald of Detroit,
state chairman.
Approximately $1,100,000,000 is
being stored in safety-deposit boxes
and vaults instead of being in-
vestedorsheld in bank accounts,
campaigners believe. While that
amount is significant, it represents
a financial problem of much larger
magnitude than that figure, due to
the fact that a dollar removed from
bank reserves decreases loaning
power several times that amount.
If the campaign should siucceed
in putting an additional billion
dollars in circulation, bank credit
would be increased, according to
Roland 1. Robinson of the Econo-
mics department, by an amount
considerably higher, cven if a large
share of the money should go into
other chancls of trade.
Emphasis on the fact that banks
in this district are sound in general
is expected to encourage deposit of
hoarded money. The Chamber of
Commerce will discuss plans for
opening the campaign at its meet-
ing next Thursday noon.
