On Feb. 23-27
Play Production Will Pro-
duce 'Hedda Gabler' In
Laboratory Theatre
"Hedda Gabler," Henrick Ibsen's
psychological study of an abnormal
woman, will be produced by Play
Production on Feb. 23, 24, 25, and
27 at the Laboratory Theatre, Val-
entine B. Windt, director, announced
This show is the first productionI
of an Ibsen play in Ann Arbor for
four years, excepting Tom Powers'l
single presentation of "Ghosts" in
June 1931.
The William Archer translation of
the original play will be used by the
local group, as this is the form most
usually presented. Eva Le Gallienne,
director of the New York Civic Re-
pertory Theatre, has had this play
in her repertoire for many years.
Miss Le Gallienne has always given
the play in modern dress but, ac-
cording to Mr. Windt, the settings
and costumes of the Play Production
presentation will be in the style of
the nineties as is more in keeping
with the spirit of the play.

Motion pictures of the 1932 eclipse
expedition of the University astron-
omy department were shown to the
general public last night for the first
time when Dr. Heber D. , Curtis,
head of the astronomy department,
addressed an assembly of the Michi-
gan Highway Conference in the
Union ballroom.
In his lecture Dr. Curtis, a man
who has encircled the globe four
times, spent years of his life in ex-
tensive preparations, and studied
many eclipses, all actually to observe
the rare piienomenon for less than
26 minutes, presented the University
expedition motion pictures. Empha-
sizing the fact that the last total
eclipse in the Ann Arbor region oc-
curreci In 1348, and that only 61
minutes of eclipse have been visible
since the advent of mocern aparatus,
he explained why the tremendous ex-
penditures of the leading observa-
tories in this last eclipse were justi-
fled- even if they added but a few

seconds' observation to the knowledge
of the sun.
Preceding the motion picture, slides
were used to demonstrate the under-
lying principles of observation and
the funcdamental facts about the sun.
"It's just a very average star, mid-
way in the brightness classification
and of no unusual size," commented
Dr. Curtis in pointing out the insig-
nificance of the solar system.
Motion pictures shown were the
product of the staff of the University
McMath Hulbert observatory at Lake
Angelus, near Pontiac. A "Jules
Verne" trip across the moon's surface
with two-mile lunar peaks plainly
discernible was featured as the only
one of its type in existence and was
made possible by newly developed ap-
paratus in use only in this observa-
Out of 30 expeditions at the 1932
Maine eclipse only four were suc-
cessful and the University group was

Sig'rid Onegfin
Will Appear In
Concert Series
Three Choral Union concerts will
follow that of the Budapest String
Quartet, which gave a spectacular
performance between semesters at
Hill Auditorium.
Sigrid Onegin, Swedish contralto,
will give the first of three concerts
in the current semester when she
appears tomorrow night at Hill Au-
ditorium as the Choral Union's
eighth presentation. She will be fol-
lowed March 6 by Vladimir Horo-

lish musician and statesman, Ignace
Jan Paderewski, recognized as dean
of pianists.
Although her first successes came
to her in operatic work, Mme. One-
gin, who has appeared on the most
brilliant stages in Europe, professes
a preference for concert work.
