I Women Given
FERA Jobs So Far
Exactly 103 women have been em-
ployed in various faculty and muse-
um projects under the Federal Emer-
gency Relief Administration here,
authorities in the dean of students'
office stated yesterday.
This number comprises all women
students who have registered for po-
sions. Work in the zoology museum

is one of the major projects in which
women are employed; work as typ-
ists, statisticians, clerks, and filing'
agents is included in the jobs opened
to these.
Although temporarify registration1
for FERA jobs has ceased, women in
urgent need of aid from the Uni-
versity have been advised to apply
at the office of the dean of students.
Where TO Go

Harriet Jennings, '34, chairman of
Judiciary Council, wail take charge
of the meeting of freshman women,
to be held tomorrow afternoon at
the League. The class project will
be decided upon at that time, and
officers elected to take charge of
plans and arrangements.
Play Production
Show Is To Open
At Mendelssohn
'Elizabeth The Queen' To
Start A Four-Night Run
A vivid portrayal in line and color,
as well as intelligent use of move-
ment and voice, will be presented
when Play Production opens with
Maxwell Anderson's "Elizabeth the
Queen" tomorrow night in the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre, with perform-
ances also scheduled for the follow-
iing three nights.
The -play is now in final rehearsals,
in which full costumes, and the req-
uisite stage sets are being used so
that the actors can blend with the
atmosphere of- the pJ'.y. The ladies
of the court have had to accustom
themselves to walking. gracefully in
the long -and cumbersome dresses,
some of which are four feet across.
The men in the cast are also prac-
tising in costumes to get used to the
starched ruffs around the necks of
their elaborate court dress, and to
the long swords, which have an un-
happy way of becoming entangled
with the legs.
The make-up and costumes of
these court characters, which include
Essex, Cecil, Bacon, Raleigh, and
Burghly as well as Elizabeth, have
been done according to studies made
by Play Production students of au-
thentic portraits. Making up the
famous queen only requires three
hours of patient application of make-
up, which has been worn now
through several dress rehearsals, so
that Elizabeth will become accus-
tomed to the mask-like quality and
can make her expressions seem na-
tural to the audience.
The cast for "Elizabeth the Queen"
requires so large a number of men
that a crew of ten women is being
used in the technical side of the
production, so that the shift from
scene to scene will be almost instan-
taneous. For the cumulative emo-
tional effect of the play, the action
must be as continuous as possible. A
very efficient system of backstage or-
ganization has been devised by Wil-
liam Halstead, Jr., Grad., so that
these quick shifts are possible. The
women in the stage crew have shown
themselves to be very ingenious and
dextrous in this technical work, al-
though it is only in emergencies that
women do the prt in this activity to
so large an extent, said Valentine B.
Windt, director of Play Production.
The play will be the most expen-
sive to be produced by Play Produc-
tion this year, due to the cost of cos-
tumes, and to the fact that no stage
props are being neglected as far as
historical accuracy as well as pic-
torial quality goes.
Reception Will Be HlRhl
For Secretary Of Labor
At a meeting of the University of
Michigan Young Democrats Club
held Sunday afternoon, the mem-
bers voted to hold a reception for
Miss Frances Perkins, Secretary of
Labor, who is coming to speak here
under the auspices of the University
Oratorical Association, Friday, March
23. Dean Emerson, '34, chairman of

the club, appointed Maureen Kava-
naugh, '36, Mary McCarty, '36, and
Marian Sanders, '37, to take charge
of the arrangements for the recep-

Plan Meeting
For Election
Year's Freshman Project
To Be Discussed; Will
Pick Council Group
All freshman women will gather at
a mass meeting at 4:00 p.m. tomor-~
row in the League to discuss the
freshman project for this year and
to elect an executive council to carry
out their plans. The committee
chosen will consist of a chairman and
her assistant and three committee
heads, according to Harriett Jen-
nings, '34, chairman of Judiciary
Council which will assist the fresh-
men in their elections.
Last year, the freshman group
abandoned the traditional Freshman
Girls Pageant and adopted, instead,
a Freshman Lantern Dance. For
many years previous to the last, the
women in the freshman class had
put on a pageant, usually depicting
the development of music, by song
and dance. This had been staged on
Palmer Field. The "Lantern Dance"
was unique in that it was "girl's date
night," a thing which heretofore had
been reserved for the Pnhellenic
Ball. Money from the dance was
turned over to the League Under-
graduate Fund. The dance included
not only social dancing, but special
cabaret numbers by members of the
freshman class. Several dance cho-
ruses performed, and unique song ar-
rangements were also featured.
"This year they need not adopt
the same idea as that carried out last
year, although the dance was very
successful. The freshmen have ade-
quate training," Miss Jenning said,
"to go ahead and get something new
if they would prefer it."
Members of Judiciary Council will
explain the purpose of the meeting
at the beginning, and the discussion
from then on will come from the
'Gung's All There'
Will Feature Both
Old And New Tunes
Both the distinctive, modernistic
compositions and the usual musical
comedy tunes will be featured in
"Gang's All There," according to
Maxine Maynard, chairman for the
1935 Junior Girls Play which will
open March 21.
"Grey Shadows," which is an im-
pressionistic, blues song, composed by
IMike Brennan, '36, with words by
Byron Dalrymple,is the "high yeller
gals" number, from the scene in the
night club. The group of singers will
be headed by Billie Griffiths, whose
solo blues number will be accom-
panied by weird motions of the others
against a shadowy background.
Drinking Song
The drinking song, "Here's To
Good Fellows," by the same com-
posers, is also from this scene in
"Henrietta's" and much of its appeal
lies in the unusual arrangements of
the number. The trio consisting of
Mary Morrison, Helene Gramm, and
Maxine Maynard, will carry the har-
mony, while a background of six
voices will sustain the melody hum-
"Crossing My Fingers," by Leon
Kaye, '34, with words by Jay Pozz,
'34, is the usual musical comedy type,
for it is one of the regular chorus
numbers in the show within the show
with a lively foxtrot rhythm.
Modern Composition

Another number from this show is
"Underworld Rhythm," composed by
two members of the Union Band,
Rubert Moran and Byron Dalrymple,
which is very modernistic. Virginia
Chapman will give the solo of this
accompanied by an octette in 4-part
The one love song of the entire
play does not follow the usual type,
but is impressive and almost .plain-
tive in its melody, "Wasting My
Love," with music by Mike Brennan
and words by Dalrymple. Charlotte
Whitman sings this not as a "sweet"
song, but as more disillusioned, hope-
less, and despairing.
The music for the pantomime of
the fantasy in the Vienna hospital is
by Moran and Dalrymple and is very
modernistic and pictorial. Every
word and gesture of the choruses is

Perhaps in no other field do Mich-
igan men hold such wide fame as in
the field of science and medicine:
chemists, physicists, astronomers, and
geologists, the man who directs vast
hospitals, and the man who works at
night in a humble laboratory to per-
feet his contribution to human wel-
fare. The list is far too long to enum-
erate, and only a very few names of
note can be mentioned.
Shortly after his graduation in
1880 from the Dental School, John
Carmichael read in a medical journal
that a German physician had suc-
cessfully used cocaine in his work on
the human eye. Cocaine was a rare
and little known drug in those days,
but Carmichael thought that it might
also be applied to dentistry. He
bought three grains from Germany
at $3.00 a grain, and published his
findings in "The Dental Cosmos" in
1882. It was the beginning of the
local anesthesia in dentistry. The ef-
fect of his work can scarcely be ap-
preciated, until one realizes that
painless dentistry had hitherto been
unheard of.
Mayo Graduated Here
Probably no other name in medi-
cine is as familiar to the world at
large as that of Mayo, and the two
famous brothers can claim the dis-
tinction of being the greatest sur-
geons in the United States, if not in
the world. William Mayo graduated
from Michigan in 1883 and began
practicing immediately afterward in
a small mid-western town. Since then
Rochester, Minn., has become a mec-
ca for the affilicted of every nation
and race. Particularly is the clinic
known for its work in the curing of
cancer. The University awarded Wil-
liam Mayo the honorary degree of
Doctor of Science in 1908.
Another name of national note is
that of John Harvey Kellogg, '73-
'74M. Not only did he found the
Battle Creek Sanatarium, fampus for
its healing and a pioneer in the
teaching of healthful diet and living,
but he has also been its director for
over 57 years.
Abel Michigan Alumnus
One of the beter-known American
scientists is John J. Abel, who grad-
uated in 1883 and is at present a
professor at Johns Hopkins. His nu-
merous researches, which have great-
ly benefited medicine, include "the
illusive principles called hormones;
the poison secreted in the skin of
toads and isolated by him in pure

another number from the show with-
in the show. The "Tango," com-
posed by Mary Ann Mathewson,

acters tango with no other accom-
The humorous songs are "Wring-
ing the Blues Away," by Mary Mor-

song of the scrubwomen's chorus;
"You Ruined Me," by Mary Morri-

tion of "Dark Town Strutters Ball,"
"Swanee River," "When You and I
Were Young, Maggie," and others,
which Mary Ann Mathewson com-
bined into "Joe's Hotsey Tune."
