4-inch Leads - Latest Mechanism
302 South State St.
By MARIE MURPHY
The plot for "Gang's All There"
involves some really dramatic scenes,
judging from rehearsals, for sparks
fly when Virginia Chapman, as the
hard-boiled, temperamental leading
lady of the show within the show,
flares up at Mack, the young pro-
ducer, played by Marie Abbott.
When Mack is "put on the spot" by
Scarface Joe, the underworld menace,
played by Beatrice Devine, it requires
some fast talking, and clever strategy
on the part of the former to extri-
cate himself from the situation.
Miss Chapman fits effortlessly into
her part as Velura Velmar, who says
she is from Argentina and never for-
gets for a minute that she has played
before the crowned heads of Europe.
The harried young producer has fre-
quent and wordy outbursts with that
blond and experienced lady, who is
so sure of her box office appeal.
Scarface Joe, that gangster villain,
s determined that his fate will not
be that of the crooked politicians
who had been laughed out of town
by Mack's production of the previous
year satirizing them, "The Sweet
Land of Liberty."
When his threats scare Mack's
chorus so that they show signs of
a wdlk out, it is Fanny, the clever,
but plump little chorine who has been
relegated to the back row because of
her obvious love of chocolates, who
shames them into sticking with the
show. Charlottle Whitman, as Fanny,
well portrays this poor dancer, hope-
lessly in love with the director to
whom she is just "one of the gals."
Fanny's devotion is so great that

Of Native Folk Songs
The Russian Student Quintet, man-
aged by Gregory Dolgorukov, will
celebrate the anniversary of its first
rehearsal Saturday. Since those first
days, when the group was a male
quartet, there have been changes and
today it boasts a soprano soloist and
a Cossack dancer in its number. The
group has broadcast several times re-
cently, although it has made no cam-
pus appearances, and will be heard
at 4:15 p.m. tomorrow over Station
WJR. Saturday the quintet is offering
a program of native songs and in-
strumental music at the Detroit In-
stitute of Art, in conjunction with
the internationally-known Russian
One of the most charming members
of the group is Madame Tatiana
Maksoutova, soprano, wife of another
member of the group, Constantine
Maksoutova, '34E. Joseph Kalom,

American Opera Co. of Chicago, and
an NBC artist, is the only member

The only one of the singers born
in this country is John Dubrovsky,
'35, St. Louis. He is the newest mem-
ber of the organization, having been
broken in only recently following the
graduation last semester of Alexis
Sokoloff. Victor Kibardin, Grad., the
Cossack dancer, came to this country
from Perm, Russia.
The quintet sings entirely in Rus-
sian and according to the Russian
methods, basing everything on the,
highest voice. Consequently the col-
lege songs which the group has re-
arranged are scarcely recognizable as
such. It is the aim of the group,
according to Dolgorukov, to discover
the historic values in the modern ver-
sions of Russian songs, and to inter-
pret them as nearly as possible in
terms of the originals.
Dolgorukov draws a sharp distinc-
tion between popular and folk songs.
The former, he says, answer the mood
of the moment and are of known
origin, while the latter are of un-
known origin and can be traced back,
in some cases, to Slavic pagan songs
of the eighth century.
