Wellesley College Beauties Selected For Tree Day
Announce Party As New
Feature In Response To
As an addition to the social activity
of the traditional J-Hop week-end,
the Union has planned a tea dance
for the afternoon following the Hop,
Saturday, Feb. 10, to be held in the1
ballroom, according to plans released
Robert A. Saltzstein, '34, president
of the Union, stated that the idea
was being given a trial this year in
response to numerous requests from
undergraduates for entertainment
after the Hop. It is highly probable,
should the experiment prove to be a
success, that it will be continued in
the future as a permanent feature.
Light refreshments will be served
from 3 to 5 p. m. at a buffet counter
and the dancers will be provided with
tables in and near the ballroom. The
music will be furnished by the reg-
ular Michigan Union dance orchestra,
under the direction of Bob Steinle,
and featuring as vocal soloists Byron
Dalrymple and Earl Burnett.
The planning of the party has been
delegated to the student dance com-
mittee including Richard Shoupe, '35,
James P. Wallace, '35, and Alexander
M. McPherson, '35. The group stated
that only a limited number of tickets
are being placed on sale at the Union
desk. However, reservations can be
made by calling the student offices.
A list of patrons for the dance will
be announced today. Tickets are
priced at 60 cents a couple, which
will defray the expense of serving re-

Miss Van Tuyl curing her fresh-
man year was the model for several
of the murals painted by James Mc-
Burney, for the Ethel Fountain Hus-
sey Room of the League. The tennis
girl over the mantel piece is a good
portrait of her.
From the beginning of her fresh-
man year, Miss Van Tuyl was espe-
cially outstanding in various. class
functions and an excellent student

She carried one of the leads for
the Freshman Pageant, and in her
second year, when the Sophomore
Circus was innovated, she was in
complete charge of the costuming. As
one of the few dance majors in the
University, she was chosen as dance
chairman for the Junior Girls Play.
Miss Van Tuyl is a member of
Alpha Omicron Pi sorority, and was
elected to Phi Kappa Phi and Pi
Lambda Theta, honorary fraternities.
Since her grdadluation Miss Van
Tuyl has been an instructor in

There she has received high commen-

Martha Graham and Mary Wigman.
Two years ago she and Miss Ochsner
travelled in Europe, studying various

Dr. Alvalyn Woodward Tells Of
Research W rk In Zoouhgy
EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the fifth
in a series of articles on prominent
women in the University.
By ELEANOR BLUM
Although she. resolved that she
would never teach, Dr. Alvalyn
Woodward, Assistant Professor of
Zoology, after one year of teaching
decided that she liked it, and has
"been at it ever since."
Dr. Woodward had an early inter-
est in the subject which she now
teaches. She was born in what was
then the Dakota Territory, and re-
ceived her early education in Ro-
chester. N. Y., which was for many
. years the family home. She tells the
story of how as a child she wanted
to be a doctor, and at the age of
seven or eight would cry herself to
sleep because she was a girl, and so,
as she thought, could not hope for
that; she was, therefore, very much
elated when at the age of eight she
had the opportunity of meeting a
She graduated from high school
with a scholarship granting four,
years' tuition at the University of
Rochester, but she knew that she
would not be able to take a medical
course, however, so her specialty
there became biology and Latin. As
a student she held a number of posi-
tions such as president of the senior
class, and president of the Student's
Her first position upon leaving col-
lege was that of a teacher of science
and mathematics in small high
schools, first at Vassar, Mich., and
then at Seneca Falls, N.Y. She re-
turned to Rochester after.:four years
of teaching to get her master's de-
gree in zoology. At the, same time
she worked as an assistant in the
All of her summers she spent in
biological research, at first the Ma-
rine Biological Laboratories at Woods
Hole, Mass., then at Cold Springs
Harbor, Long Island, and finally at
Douglas Lake, where the Michigan
Biological Station is situated.
Her life seemed to be a succession
of interesting positions. For a year
she was acting head of the biology
department at Central State Teach-
ers College at Mount Pleasant.
Then. with the encouragement of
Dr. A. S. Pearse. with whom she
worked at Douglas Lake, she camne
to Michigan forgraduate work, and
for three years held a fellowship
At the close of the three years she
accepted a position as teaching as-
sistant at Vassar College. During the
War she was instructor in zoology at
Simmons College at Boston. "We
weren't in the War, but we might as
well have been," she said. Evenings
and Sundays, she would leave Sim-
mons and go over touTuftsCollege
Medical School to help make serums
for war purposes. She had had
enough bacteriology to know the
technique well enough to make the
While at Simmons she got a long-
distance call from O. C. Glaser, under
whom she had worked at Michigan,
asking her if she would be interested
in a .position doing research and re-
organization work at Amherst. There
she was one of the two .women who
had faculty , rank. Other jobs fol-
lowed. She was, for a while, a teacher
of physiology at the North Carolina
College for Women, and after that,

"Gang's All There," 1934 Junior Girls
Play, was selected last night accord-
ing to Barbara Sutherland, general,
The show concerns the difficulties
of a big city producer, played by Miss
Abbott, with his temperamental lead-
ing lady, Virginia Chapman. Mildred;
Bosma, as "Scarface Joe," further
complicates matters; while Camilla
Bowman, the debutante chorine, Vir-
ginia Randolph, and Kathleen Car-
penter are none the less troublesome
in their respective roles.
Minor parts will be taken by Betty
Little, Jane Cissell, Sally Stapleton,
Beatrice Devine, Kathleen Patterson,
Sarah Pierce, Harriet Speiss, Billie
Griffiths, Mary Morrison, Madelyne
Coe, Barbara Morgan.
A cast of 200, including all types,
of choruses from Garbos to mugs and;
molls, will take part. A group of
twenty trained singers under the di-,
rection of Maxine Maynard, will
alone be responsible for the singingr
throughout the entire play.

Associate Professor of Zoology at the
University of Maine. It was there that
she started her experiments on can-
cer in mice.
Dr. Clarence Little, who had start-
ed a cancer research laboratory here,
heard of Dr. Woodward's experiments
and asked her to come to Michigan.
That was in 1927. She worked in the
cancer laboratory for two years and
then came to the zoology department
to teach animal physiology. The re-
search which she is carrying on now
is on the effects of endocrines, or
internal secretions; and, a subject re-
lated to cancer, the different factors
making cells divide.
Lily Pons, who is to sing next Mon-
day in Hill Auditorium, is the small-
est prima donna ever to appear on
the Metropolitan Opera stage. She is
five feet, two inches in height and
weighs 101 pounds. Her feet are so
small that she can only be fitted with
shoes made on a special last.
Miss Pons does not have to diet.
In fact, the opposite is true. It was
in Buenos Aires, during her strenuous
season at the Colon Opera that she
discovered she was losing weight. As
she weighed only 101 pounds to begin
with, this was not to be thought of.
,A physician prescribed pumpernickel,
a special black bread, spread with
butter almost as thick as the bread
itself. Fourteen big slices she was to
eat every day. In two weeks time she
had gained nine pounds, and today,
pumpernickel is part of her daily diet.
Miss Pons does not smoke. She en-
joys an occasional glass of Burgundy
wine, and considers gin and whiskey
medicine on a par with cod-liver and
She is simple, quite unsophisticated
for a famous diva - altogether
charming and child-like. There is a
slight suggestion of Lillian Gish; yet
she is dark, with small features,
olive-tinted. Her dark hair is bobbed.
How long it will remain that way,
she is not quite sure. Perhaps she
will let it grow long. It seems she

Perhaps her airy slimness accounts
for her, temperament, for Lily Pons
lives life in the accelerated tempo of
perpetual movement. She loves sports
--she swims, plays tennis, rides
horseback. She loves to dance. She

plans for retirement. She will sing
for ten years -no more. Then, at the
advanced age of 38 she will buy a
farm in her beloved France.
It is possible that she may change
her mind before the approach of the
next decade, but the mere mention of
this possibility elicits vigorous denial
on the part of the young singer.
