Comedy Club
To Open Play
Out Of The City
Saginaw To See The First
Performance Of T h e
Last Of Mrs. Cheyney'
For the first time since the death
of the Union Opera, a campus dra-
fnfatic organization will present a
show out of Ann Arbor.
Following the plan of large Broad-
way companies in opening in an out-
of-town theatre, Comedy Club will
travel to Saginaw where their initial
production of the season, "The Last
of Mrs. Cheyney," will be presented
Thursday night. This will mark the
first time any campus organizations,
except the Opera, has left the city
to present a play.
The entire scenery and stage prop-
erties will be transported to Saginaw
in one of the University trucks. The
company will return immediately to
Ann Arbor where the play will be
presented Friday and Saturday
nights in Lydia Mendelssohn Thea-
Permission to leave the campus
and the good wishes of both Dean
Alice C. Lloyd and Dean Joseph A.
Bursley were received yesterday.
The direction of "The Last of Mrs.
Cheyney" is under Ferol Brinkman
of Ann Arbor, for a long time con-
nected with professional light opera.
She took the leading role and di-
rected "The Mikado" which played
on the road for two years. She also
directed "The Music Master" for a
professional company which made a
tour of the country. With a wide
range of dramatic experience to her
credit she received the greater part
of her training under Harry Davies,
at one time the first leading tenor
of the Boston Opera Company.
Formal Train Art
Threatens Women
With Sad Worries
With the Sophomore Prom on Fri-
day night, and J-Hop uncomfortably
close, the feminine members of the
campus are worrying not over exams,
but over the details of the forma\
gown to be worn at these affairs.
For not only must one put on the
frock, but the entire evening of danc
ing requires technique in the art of
managing your train. Very few o
the newest formals coming in from
the New York shows are minus these
majestic features, and the campus
has whole-heartedly taken to them.
The so-called fishtail model is
planned for the tall regal person,
whose gown is gracefully draped. The
train itself, as the name implies,
swirls from a central fullness and
ends in a gradual point. If the crea
tion be of lace, one of the most pop-
ular materials with the University
group, the style is particularly suited
While dancing, this style is usuall)
long enough to be fastened to the
little finger by an attached loop.
For the more tailored design to be
worn by a small person, the train
assumes a square cut. One model no
on campus, touches the floor on the
front and sides and then is slit up
the back on both sides whence the
squared train begins. The pleating
which trims the rest of the gown also
finishes the edge of the train. These
shorter trains must be drawn up
from the side so that the frock just
misses the danger of dancing feet.

Returns From Trip

Prof. Karpinski
Returns Fr o m
A Lecture Trip!
Well-Known Mathematics
Authority Collects Books
For University Library
Prof. Louis C. Karpinski, absent on
Sabbatical leave since Aug. 30, re-
turned to Ann Arbor Sunday after
extensive travel.
Professor Karpinski, well-known in
the field of mathematics, has been
collecting books on mathematics for
the University. He was provided with
a fund, given for this purpose by.
Tracy W. McGregor, of Washington,
D. C. The books which he collected
during his absence have been mostly
written in Arabic and Egyptian. He
succeeded in getting a great number
of volumes containing valuable ma-
terial on the sources of mathematics.
During the course of his travels,
Professor Karpinski gave numerous
lectures. At the University of Egypt
in Cairo, his lecture subject was "The
Importance of Greek Mathematics,"
at the Institute of Education at Cairo,
he spoke on "The Importance of
Egyptian and Mohammedan Mathe-
matics"; he delivered another lecture
of similar type at the University of
This was Professor Kapkinski's
sixth trip abroad to collect material
for the mathematics division of the
University; it was his first trip to the
Holy Land. He has been on the Uni-
versity faculty for approximately
twenty-five years.
On the other trips he spent most
of his time in northern and central
Europe, while this time he went down
into the less familiar parts of the
world for research purposes, His aim,
in general-that of finding some of
the primary sources of mathematics
- was the same as on the previous

trouble which clubs and social groups

Good tobaccos... real good tobaccos... that's the reason
for Lucky Strike's fine, smooth quality. We use only
the center leaves of the finest Turkish and domestic to-
bacco plants. Not the top leaves-because those are under-
developed. Not the bottom leaves-because those are in-
ferior in quality. We use only the center leaves-because
these are the mildest leaves-fully ripe for perfect smok-
ing. Only these choice tobaccos are used to make Luckies
--so round, so firm, so fully packed -and no loose ends
to spill out. That's why Luckies are always mild and
smooth. That's why always "Luckies please". And don't
forget-"It's toasted"-for throat protection-for finer taste.
