Lecture Series.. ..
IN keeping with the fine tradition
that it has established in the past,
the Oratorical Associa-tion this year again will
bring to Ann Arbor an outstanding group of
As has been its policy, the association will offer
a program that is not only up to the minute,
unusual, educational, and entertaining, but one
that has enough variety to appeal at some point
to every individual, no matter how limited his
interests. The series this year will include prom-
inent authorities in the fields of drama, litera-
ture, social economy, exploration, animal life and
The Oratorical Association opens its 1933-34
season with a unique platform attraction, Doro-
thy Sands in her "America's Theater Glorious."
Miss Sands' portrayal of the American theater
from the Revolutionary theater, through the days
of Tony Pastor's and the early movies, down to
the present day has brought high acclamation
from the press, "To the select company of one
woman theaters now add the name of Dorothy
Sands," says the New York Times, and Vogue
characterizes'her as "the supreme contemporary
mistress of imtation." In otier cities the ad-
mission charge for this program alone is as high
as the cost of a ticket for the entire series here.
In accordance with its policy of presenting a
prominent literary figure each season, the course
will present Edna St. Vincent Millay, distinguished
American poet, in the second program of the year.
Miss Millay, whose works are well-known and
recognized as outstanding in contemporary lit-
erature, will present a program of readings.
Just as the Russian question is coming to the
fore again, Col. Raymond Robins, social welfare
worker and distinguished lecturer, will come to
Ann Arbor to offer his reasons for the belief that
Russia should be recognized, in a lecture entitled
"Russia - After 15 Years." Col. Robins bases
his analysis of Russian conditions on studies made
during his visits there in 1917-18 and again last
The Oratorical Association can boast of having
presented here every great explorer since Peary.
This year Air Commodore P. F. M. Fellowes, lead-
er of the expedition which last April 3 flew to a
height of 34,500 feet and -swept over the snow
plume of Mt. Everest, will appear here to tell
the story of that flight in narrative and with
motion pictures made at the time.
Those who have seen Capt. C. W. Knight's mo-
tion picture entertainment, "Monarchs of the
Air," consider it one of the greatest, attractions
of its kind on the American lecture platform. The
association has been attempting to secure this
number for several years, but without success.
at the same low rates that were in effect last
year, $2.50, $2.75, ad $3.00. With commodity
and other prices already rising, these ticket prices
are even more of a bargain than formerly. Ap-
plications are being filled in the order in which
they are received, and those who wish to obtain
choice seats are advised to place their orders
immediately. Mail orders should be addressed to
3211 Angell Hall, and the local bookstores are
also accepting orders.
Few large cities will have an opportunity during
the season to hear such a group of speakers as
will be presented here, and fewer still will be
offered such speakers on a single low-priced series.
Intellectually Curiou s?
N the League Sunday morning
breakfast discussions, the fresh-
man class is offered a challenge. Is it intellectu-
For some time it has been thought that a col-
lege should awaken intellectual curiosity. At
present this view is falling into disrepute. It is
no longer so widely believed that it is possible
to arouse curiosity. A person either has it or
he doesn't have it. The idea of the last decade,
that a university should stimulate intellectual
inquisitiveness, is becoming a thing of the past;
it has been discarded for the proposition that a
university is a place which exists only because
there is a class of people who already are con-
fronted by questions, and wish to see them an-
An implication of this new interpretation of
the role played by the university is that a person
who is not intellectually curious has no business
attending one. Freshmen devoid of the question-
ing attitude, that is, should pack up and go home.
Not every freshman who is intellectually curi-
ous will attend the breakfast meetings, at the
League. Not every freshman who does attend
will be motivated by a questioning attitude. But
undeniably these meetings, which are to be led
by some of the finest minds of the faculty and
among the student body, afford members of the
class an excellent opportunity to prove that they
have not come to Ann Arbor to stagnate in a
mire of mental apathy, but to probe some of
the questions which confront us in this changing
By LARRY KING
SAID Professor Paton in his accounting lecture
Monday, "You may sleep during this lecture
if you do not snore and you may read anything
but the Saturday Evening Post because the pages
rustle. All work must be in on time unless you
have such an excuse as a broken arm. If you
want to sit next to the best looking girl merely
turn in a slip with her name on it." That lecture
should be crowded.
. * * *
Another of Professor Paton's remarks was
that, "we don't accept Health Service ex-
cuses, not because we don't believe them, but
because we can't read the doctor's writing."
* * *
ANOTHER of those freshmen went to the D.K.E.
house for dinner. Seeing B: B. Kelley, presi-
dent of the Interfraternity Council, he marched
up and asked, "Well, have you passed any more
fool rushing rules?" He then turned to another
fellow wearing a plaid tab collar shirt, "Where,"
he asked, "have you been? The Fireman's Ball?"
* * *
Now it can be told. Four years ago a
freshman was approached by an upperclass-
man who wanted to sell him a ticket to the
campus for five dollars. The freshman, who
was carrying a counterfeit twenty dollar bill,
bought the ticket and got fiteen dollars in
change. The freshman graduated last spring
without everhaving told the story for fear
the upperclassman would find out who he was.
HERB NIGG, Chi Phi playboy, has been riding
a bicycle all around since school started. In
fact he has even taken his dates places on it.
But the other day he was seen pensively walking
the bike. Must have had rider's cramp.
The exchange numbers on the switchboard at
the University Hospital were changed recently.
Shortly afterward someone called the number
formerly assigned to the dietary department (kit-
chens to you) and asked for two pounds of saus-
age. "This," said the lady who answered, "is the
surgical department. Are you sure you haven't
the wrong number?"

Michigan's sophisticated student body went
yekel Friday night. Among the prominent
men seen at the Marcus show were Ray Fiske,
football manager, the Smith brothers from
the A. D. Phi house, Dean, Larry and Bill,
Bill Onderdonk from the Psi U house, Sedge
Stagg from the Phi Gam house, and a couple
of the Health Service doctors.

MICHIGAN--LAST THURSDAY NIGHT
"LA VIE PAREE"
"But there is no joy in Ann Arbor,
For The Marcus Show has struck out."'
So might the famous ode to Casey, baseball's
greatest hitter, be paraphrased to designate the
general reaction to the super-behemoth of bur-
lesques which appeared at the Michigan Thurs-
day shortly beore midnight for a one-run stand.
"General reaction," we say advisedly, for there
were significant exceptions. Many who saw the
"spray-flecked demoiselles" parade as the "great-
est bower of beauty since the dawn of time"
thought the genuinely excellent dancing of the
short, dark gentleman, whose name we regret to
say we do not know, the bronze-paint dance, and
the fan dance made up for the sagging beauty
of several of the chorines and the natural dis-
appointment at seeing a presentation so far less
risque than its advertising.
The Marcus Show came here with two strikes on
it in the shape or organized and semi-organized
opposition from several Ann Arbor groups who
took the advertising at face value and decided
that "La Vie Paree" should never be allowed
to open, or at best not continue open if it was
found that any dances or jokes were unduly pro-
But the dances weren't, and the jokes weren't.
The whole array was good burlesque, without the
odium which is customarily associated with such
a variety of entertainment. There was nothing
immoral, or even remotely so, to the eye of the
undergraduate or the reasonably sophisticated
townsperson, in "La Vie Paree."

COMING TO THE MAJESTIC TODAY -
"PADDY, THE NEXT BEST THING"
In this newest Majestic presentation we find
Janet Gaynor cast as an irresponsible "little"
girl of the countryside who sets out to prevent
her father from marrying her sister to a wealthy
bachelor. The father, improvident, lovable, thinks
nothing of what he is about to do. Complica-
tions ensue when another suitor is attracted to
Janet only to find both Janet and her sister fall-
ing in love with the bachelor.
Janet Gaynor has the title role of Paddy; Law-
rence Blake is played by Warner Baxter; Jack
Breen, the other young man, is played by Harvey
Stephens; and Eileen, Paddy's sister, is the part of
Ireland, with its colleens and blarney-tongued
salesmen, is the scene of "Paddy." Flocks of
sheep scampering in the streets, strutting ganders,
sows with their young, and other scenes actually
photographed in what is non-technically known
as the "old country" are promised. It looks like
a reasonably good bet for Gaynor-Baxter fans.
"LE MILLION" FIRST PRESENTATION
OF THE ART CINEMA LEAGUE
"Le Million," hailed as one of the most bril-.
liant French talking pictures ever produced, and
as a worthy successor to "Sous les Toits de Paris,"
will have its first local presentation at Lydia
Mendelssohn. Theatre Thursday, Friday, and Sat-
urday, Oct. 12, 13, and 14, under the auspices
of the Art Cinema League.
Both in Europe and in New York "Le Million"
has enjoyed record runs at leading motion pic-
ture houses, and the public as well as the press
has been generous in its praise. Retie Clair, the
famous French director, has written the scenario
HERE are values in stoves just

up-to-date range should have. Here
are a few of the things you should
