"Hansel and Gretel," the initial
production of the newly-formed Chil-
dren's theatre of Ann Arbor, will be
presented this afternoon and tomor-
row night at the Lydia Mendelssohn
The play is an adaptation of the
old German legend, and the musical
score by Humperdinck will be used
The entire production is being stage
by Kenneth Marantette of the Tap-
pan Junior High School, with a cast
and choruses composed of students
under his direction at Tappan.
Although the entire cast for "Han-
sel and Gretel" will be made up of
children, such will not be the case
for the other productions to be given
this season by the Children's Thea-
tre. "In "Jack and the Beanstalk"
and "The Pied Piper of Hamelin
Town," which will be given in Janu-
ary and March under the direction of
Russell McCracken, children will play
only parts appropriate to their ages.
"This in the main is the policy of
the Children's Theatre," said Mist:
Ethel McCormick, general manager,
"but we feel that there is a definite
place in our organization .for an all-
children's production such as Mr.
Marantette's, and we are happy to
include it in our season of plays for
this year."~
Speaking of the production of
"Hansel and Gretel," Mr. McCracken.
who has seen it in rehearsal said.
"The all-children's cast brings a
freshness and charm to the old leg-
end which is particularly appealing
now at christmas time. Just as chil-
dren put on bright crimson robes
and go about caroling at Christmas
time in Europe, so often troupes of
child actors go about during the sea-
son performing old legendary or
Christmas plays."
"Hensel and Gretel" is produced
in many parts of Germany each year
at Christmas time, as in the United
Kingdom Christmas pantomines are
done every year. "Everyone," Mr.
McCracken said, "will enjoy the light
and imaginative music which Hum-
perdinck has written for "Hansel and
Gretel hIts rendering by the Tap-
pan School choir throughout the
production of the play is full of un-
derstanding and feeling for the spirit
o the score.
Holiday Hop To Be
Dee. 23 At League
The third annual Holiday Hop will
be held Saturday, Dec. 23, in the
League from 9 to 2 under the direc-
tion of Gilbert Bursley and Max Gail.
The Hop is intended primarily for
University students in Ann Arbor
during the holidays, but it is open
to the general public. For the past
two years it has been one of the most
colorful events of the Christmas ac-
Max Gail's orchestra will furnish
the music and the second floor of
the League will be reserved for the
occasion. Tickets at $1.25 may be
obtained at the Union, the League,
Hut, Slaters, Van Boven's. A floor
show is being planned.

Carl Guthe Tells Of'
Museum Research
Work And Writing
Several research projects now un-
der study in the Museum of Anthro-
oology were discussed by Dr. Carl
Guthe, director of the Museum and
)ne of the foremost anthropologists
.n the country, yesterday noon at the
,veekly meeting of the Graduate
Juncheon Club.
Ethna-botany, the history of Mich-
igan Indians, and pottery from the
Mississippi valley, are subjects of
some of the major and most impor-
tant research labors, in the museum
The first project mentioned, ethna-
botany, is the study of the probable
uses which the American Indian
made of the plants familiar to him
in his civilization. A large collection
of materials has been built up for
this work.
Another job, said Dr. Guthe, is the
study of the history of Michigan In-
dians, which has been going on for,
10 or 11 years. Prof. W. B. Hinsdale
of the Medical School, who engaged
in research in that field, has pub-
lished several books on the subject,
among them an atlas of Indian life
in this state. There is a large and
constantly increasing collection of
materials in this field, Dr. Guthe
Pottery from the Mississippi valley
is extensively studied by special re-
search workers, as well as materials
Blomn other parts of the world. The
workers seeking information on the
changes which have occurred in Chi-
na, Japan, Siam and other Oriental
countries, are analyzing and studying
porcelains and ceramics collected by
the University in the Philippines 10
years ago, in addition to exhibits
from other parts of the Far East.
All of these projects, emphasized
Dr. Guthe, are confined to physical
e v i d e n c e s, material things, dead
things. The men in charge of the
teaching department, he said, are
working on living peoples, studying
and observing their social organiza-
tion, religion, and so forth. Prof.
Leslie A. White, chairman of the
teaching department, is studying the
social structure of American Indians
in New Mexico. He has printed his
findings in several articles.

ious have invented when they are
supplied with food and women, to
escape the tediousness of life -W.
