THE MICHIGAN DAILY
Dining Room Decorated
To Simulate Shipboard;
Faculty Members There
A nautical air pervaded Betsy Bar-
bour house last night when the dor-.
mitory's rooms were dressed up with
steamship-like fittings for a cap-
tain's dinner honoring President and
Mrs. Alexander G. Ruthven who sail
for Egypt on Dec. 12 aboard the S. S.
A gangplank was constructed be-
tween the parlor and the dining
room which guests had to walk on
their way to dinner. Steamer tickets
were used as place cards and a good-
luck ship in the center of the cap-
tain's table wished the travelers "bon
voyage." The waitresses wore sailor's
costumes and the guests were called
to dinner by Jean Gourlay, '37, who
sounded the mess call.
Black and white candles lighted
the dining room and white roses,
myriads of gayly-colored balloons
and paper hats completed the deco-
rations. Dessert, ice-cream molded
in the form of a ship, added to the
Among the members of the fac-
ulty and townspeople who attended
the affair honoring the Ruthvens
were: Dr. and Mrs. J. D. Bruce, Prof.
and. Mrs. C.. S. Yoakum, Shirley
Smith, Mr. and Mrs. H. B. Earhart,
Prof. and Mrs. J. S. Reeves, Prof.
and Mrs. Everett Brown, Mr. and
Mrs. S. S. Inglis, Mr. and Mrs. O. E.
Hunt, and Mr. and Mrs. H. S.
Viviani Vischer, '35, arranged the
details, assisted by Lucille Root, '34,
house president, and Sue Mahler,
'35, social chairman.
Women To Have Special
Feature In New Gargoyle
Women are to have an exclusive
and undisputed spot in the new Gar-
goyle. The two page feature, "Soph-
isticated Lady," is a new venture in
the way of women's fashion columns,
according to Tom Powers, editor of
the, Gargoyle, in that the purpose is
to deal wholly with the needs of uni-
versity women, and more specifically
with that of this particular campus.
With that idea in mind material
for the' column will be gathered from
observations around the campus and
at the various dances, Powers said.
In order to bring the column even
more directly to the students photo
graphs illustrating the article will
be made of women on campus model-
ing costumes from local shops. Nancy,
Olds, '37, and Marian Donaldson, '37,1
will be photographed for the Novem-
"Sophisticated Lady" is being writ-
ten by Carol Hanan, '34. In discuss-
ing the coming number Miss Hanan
stated, "I intend to talk about a1
custom exclusive to the women on
the campus, and one that is rapidly
turning into a tradition that has
heretofore been neglected."

Hold No Fears For
Miss Blanche Ring
By A. ELLIS BALL
College towns and student audiences
are no novelty to Blanche Ring, vet-
eran musical comedy star who is tak-
ing the part of Carlotta Vance in
Robert Henderson's stage production
of "Dinner at Eight" running this
week at the Majestic Theatre.
Not only has. she played in Ann
Arbor three times previously, in
"Yankee Girl," "Wall Street Girl,"
and "Claudia Smiles," but she was
for years a favorite with Harvard
students. Whenever she .was playing
Boston the first three rows of the
theatre were regularly reserved for
Harvard students who called them-
selves her "Angel Choir" and reg-
ulai'ly sent her a bunch of American
Beauty roses. Miss Ring said in an
interview yesterday that even now
as she is traveling around the coun-
try she occasionally receives a bunch
of roses before a performance signed,
"From one of your Angel Choir."
Miss Ring was the first actress in
America with whom the audience
joined in on the chorus of a song.
When she sang "In the Good Old
Summer Time" in "The Defender"
the tune was so catchy that before
she finished the whole house was
singing with her.
Miss Ring, whose favorite expres-
sion is "lousy" -pronounced "la" as
in laugh, and "ow" as in how - and
who likes to entertain at home be-
cause she can "take down her hair
and call a spade a dirty shovel," is
going to take a local girl named Or-
phan Annie with her when she leaves
town. Orphan Annie is the little black
Peke with the crumpled leg which she
carries on the stage with her and will,
Miss Ring hopes, take the placeof
her other Peke, Mussolini, who died
two years ago.
Last night over a nation-wide radio
broadcast on a program with Fred
Stone, Will Rogers, and McIntyre &
Heath, Miss Ring sang "With Rings
on Her Fingers," another song which
she made famous. Miss Ring, who
broadcast her part of the program
from the University studios, will sing
this song as a curtain call after the
last act of "Dinner at Eight" for the
remainder of the week.
To Use Old Music
In 1910 American dance music was
revolutionized by the ragtime. Old
sentimental polkas gave way to the
new ideas of wild jazz, which, with
the mellowing influence of age, has
developed into our modern, languor-
ous music. That was just 23 years
ago, and yet when the entertainment
committee of Sophomore Cabaret
tried to find some pieces written dur-
ing that period for their choruses
they found it almost impossible.
Organized attic hunts for such
pieces proved fruitless. All seemed
lost until Mrs. Leo Burns, 2118 Charl-
ton St., appeared. Mrs. Burns, who
was in the Junior Girls Play in 1922,
had a collection given to her by a
friend of almost all the popular music
of this period. In it were most of the
songs the Sophomore Cabaret want-
ed, including the Yankee Consul,
which will be the opening number.
However, they still are hunting for
numbers and would appreciate any
