Makes Opera Debut

Play Production Students
To Illustrate How Dane-
ing Helps Theatre Work
The demand for tickets for the
dance demonstration, which is to be
given at 8:15 tonight at the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre by Play Pro-
duction and the Department of Phys-
ical Education for women, has far
surpassed. expectations, Valentine
Windt, director of Play Production;
said yesterday.
Admissiun to the demonstration
has been invitational, with the pri-
mary idea to reach all those inter-
ested in dance work as connected
with the theatre. It is the first time
in Ann Arbor that it has been pos-
sible to give actual dance training in
connection with the regular Play
Production classes. Dr. Margaret
Bell and Miss Emily V. White of the
department of Physical Education of-
fered their help during the past
semester.
Since stud'ents have only had the
opportunity for such dance training
for one semester, the program of-
fered is not presenoed as a finished
production. Mr. Windt said. How-
ever, it includes some 18 numbers,
including four pantomimes, several
numbers which illustrate the differ-
ent kinds of dance in an attempt to
show the various phases of dance
study and application, and a com -
plete scene from a play, combining
dance, music and actual speech, Mr.
Windt said.

EDITOR' NOTE: This, is the fourth
n of aticleson proninent
Wumen > ii theive .rsity.
By ELEANOR BILUM
Because she thought she had
enough of her major subjcct, which
was mathematics, Dr. Elizabeth C.
Crosby enrolled in a course in nerv-
ous anatomy at the University of
Chicago -"just to try something in
science." She found it so interesting,
however, that she has made it her
life work, and is now well-known in
the field of medicine for research in
the subject.
Dr. Crosby was born in the village
of Petersburg, Mich., where she l tr
attended school through her high
school grades. At Adrian College,
where she received her bachelor of
science degree, her chief interest was
mathematics. Taking advantage of
her ability to grasp the subject easily.
she fnished her course there in thr
years.
Because her high school cor -
mencement present irom her father
had been four years college, she had
another year's grace, and she took
this to do graduate work at the Uni-
versity of Chicago, where she re-
ceived a fellowship. It was there that.
she first became interested in the
study of nervous anatomy, and re-
.eived her Ph.D. degree.
Because of illness at home >he was
forced to go back to Petersburg
rather than pursue her career in
medicine. There she was made su-
perintendent of schools, and in this
capacity she says, she taught a little
bit of everything, although her as-
signed subjects w e r e Latin and
mathematics.
She came to the University of
Michigan to interview Dr. Carl Huber
about further research work, and was;
offered by him a position as junior
instructor in anatomy. Her positions
from then on rose in inpo fancc.
She was made senior instructo'r, thewi
in 1926, assistant professor, and F1-
nally four or five years ago was made
associate professor of anatomy.
Almost all of her research and
most of her valuable training she
says was received from Dr. Huber.
professor of Anatomy, Director of
Anatomical Laboratories, and Dean
of the Graduate School.
It was during the time that she
studied at the Institute for Brain Re-
search at Amsterdam t h a t sh-e,
worked with Prof. C. U. Ariens Ke-
pers, head of the institute. It was ie
who requested Dean Huber and Dr.
Crosby to take part in a revision of
his text on comparative neurology.
The book had been written in 1920
and of course there had been many
changes since that time. The result
was that the book is being completely
rewritten and will appear under the
title of "A Text On Vertebrate Com-
parative Neurology" by Kapper, Hu-

osby Tells Of
ber, and Crby. She was also a
mnember of the group which revised
"Piersoll's H u mn a n Anatomy," of
which Dr. Huoci' was editor in chief.
Dr. Crosbyv is rather retiring to talk
to, and extrer.iny modest about her
work. She says, hoever. that she
wouldin't exchange her iob for any-
one elses. Students in her classes
say that she loses r shyness in the
classroom and becomes engrossed in
the subject that she is teaching.

Where TQ Go

Not only-_students in Play Produc-
tion are taking part in the demon-
stration, but also the Dance Club,
the intermediate academic -class in
dancing, and major students in the
Department of Physical Education
will also be represented. A total of
over 100 students will present the
demonstration, not including those
students in the regular Play Produc-
tion classes who have done the stag-
ing and costuming for the produc-
tion.
Since the requests for tickets have
been so numerous, it has been de-
cided that reserved tickets which
have not been called for at the box
office by noon today will no longer
be held. All who hold tickets are
requested to be in their seats by 8:15,
since after that time no seats will be
reserved. Mr. Windt said that those
without tickets would be admitted to
these seats after 8:15, so that the
house will be completely filled.
To Unite Arts
Play Production has been inter-
ested in the combining of all the arts
in the theatre; the work this year
lzeing the first step toward the fu::-
fillment of that ideal. The work is,
expected to develop poise and ability
to express ideas through the body, as
well as to teach expression and ar-
tistic principles. Mr. Windt also said
that it was the hope of Play Produc-
tion that actual dance could be in-
cluded in future productions.
The next play to be produced by
Play Production is "See Naples and
Die", by Elmer Rice, and will be pre-
sented late in February.
Concert Given By
Music Professors
The faculty concert Sunday was
presented by Prof. Arthur Hackett,
Prof. Joseph Brinkman, Prof. Wassily
Besekirsky, and Prof. Hans Pick of
the School of Music.
Professor Hackett sang a group of
Schubert and Schumann songs, ac-
companied by Professor Brinkman,
who also with Professor Besekirsky
contributed suite for violin and piano.
Presented in Ann Arbor for the
first time was a suite by Jack Conk-
lin, '31, which had won recognition
at the Music Teachers National con-
vention held at Lincoln, Nebraska
during the holidays. Mr. Conklin also
composed the music for the recent
presentation of "Jack and the Bean-
stalk" by the Children's Theatre here.

This task of selecting sport jewelry
for campus is often difficult, for one
must select those few accents that
will give a casual air and not involve
an over-dressed affect.
The semi-precious stones, so-called,
may be chosen for this, including
carnelian and j a d c, simply cut.
We've seen a carnelian set of clip,
wide bracelet, and button earrings
that may be used to advantage on a
simple tailored frock. The unusually
deep tone of the stone and also of
jade add an air of rich simplicity
Another suggestion of the campus
jewelers consists of tortoise. For a
bright wool with brown accessories,
nothing more suitable could be found.
The cost is very small and yet the

novelty of this addition to fashion
circles makes it 'a popular o:ie.
Wooden trims of buttons and
carved buckles are being widely used,
and designers have selected this ma-
terial for wide bracelets,' and even
compacts. The wood must have a
stain and definite grain to give it that
certain something which contains the
essence of smartness. Along with this
goes the string, rope and anchor ef-
fects being innovated so consistently
with the sailor styles of the spring
I sport wear. There are corded brace-
lets and belts that end jauntily in
brass anchors.
THE LAST HOPE
WARREN, O., Jan. 23. -/P)- With
only enough revenue in sight to keep
the city in operation for three
months, the city council has decided
to open all future meetings with a
prayer.
"Never before has the council
needed divine guidance as it does
now," Councilman A. L. Oakes said
as he made the suggestion. The min-
isterial association was invited' to
have a minister present for the first
meeting in February.
