These two dancers recently staged
the dancing and appeared as fea-
tured soloists in the New York The-
ater Guild's production of Moliere's
"School for Husbands." Last fall in
"Americana" their success with their
dance group was said to have intro-
duced an entbirely new trend in mu-
sical revue dancing, definitely pre-
senting the finest type of modern
ballet instead of a series of so-called
"precision" dancers. This year Mr.
Weidman also staged all of the ballet
numbers for "As Thousands Cheer"
and "Let 'Em Eat Cake," Broadway
musical hits.
Their appearance in the local sea-
son will mark their first appearance
outside of the eastern metropolitan
centers.
Ann Arbor has become acquainted
with the American choreography
through the work of Martha Graham
and Angna Enters in previous fes-
tivals. "The work of Charles Weld-
man and Miss Humphreys," Robert
Henderson, director of the festival
pointed out, "is quite different from
the style of such a dancer as Miss
Graham. It is vivacious and gay,
backed by an extraordinary technical
skill. It represents much of the same
'life' and vitality of the dancers in
the Monte Carlo Ballet Russe."
Piano Solo And
Dance Stoared
At Stunt N iht
Two piano solos were the initial
presentations of the weekly League
Stunt Night in the- Grill Room Wed
nesday night. E. William Smith, '35,
played "Some of These Days" and
"Gypsy Rhapsody."
Jack Zucker, '34, was next on the
program with a tap dance. He was
followed by Eugene Wasielewski, '34,
who played two piano numbers, "Valse
Triste," and "Nola."
Acting as master of ceremonies,
Harold Nixon, '35, introduced Ger-
trude Leve, '37SM, who sang a song
of her own composition entitled, "For-
saken." Al Cowan and his orchestra
played for dancing.

Prof. Alfred 0. Lee, formerly of the
Romance Languages department, en-
tertained the French Club at their
meeting last night with two stunts
performed to music.

It Takes rHeap Of/ Furnture
To Make Your Room A Ihomel

By FLORENCE HARPER
Given one rather impersonal, may
we say cell-like, room in a dormi-
tory o ,orority house, several pieces
of slab-like furniture, and a decora-
tive scheme which is certainly any-
thing but definite. Puzzle, what to
do about it to give aforementioned
room a home-like and personal touch.
There are various and sundry
ways to go about adding that touch
which makes the room attractive.
Some college girls seem to pin all
their faith to cushions. Perhaps they
feel that they express their person-
alities, very collegiate cushions for
he wholesome outdoor girl and
duffy ruffly pillows for the social
butterfly.
Occasional Furniture Used
Cushions really won't do the trick,
though, but few pieces of occasional
furniture will. Something that is
0ll your ownmakes all the difference
in such a room. An end table to
Mold a lamp and a' few books is
one of the best touches. Those tables
made with a book rack are the most
practical for a room which is always
Opffen-I loutse At
Leagfue Draws
Larcre Crowd
A3 large crowd thronged the en-
tire League building last night when
the second annual League Open-
House offered an opportunity for free
enter tainment;, and inspection of the
building.
Max Gail and his orchestra played
for the dancing which took place in
the mrain ballroom; this was the
most popular feature of the evening.
B ridge was also a favorite in the
Ethel Fountain Hlussey Room, and
the pool and pinig pong tables were
kept busy.
Freshmen women met the guests
and guided them through the en-
Lire building, showing them the see-
ond, third and fourth floors, which
were all open for inspection. Other
freshmen women, under the chair-
manship of Wttilhelmiine Carr,'. 37, also
acted as hostesses to the guests.
Julie Kane, '36, was general chair-
man-of the affair.

overflowing with books and papers,
but one of the clever tip-top tables
is also convenient for it can be folded
up against the wall in those times
when floor space is in demand.
New Bookcases
For taking care of the excess
paraphenalia of the student or the
accumulated fan mail of the average
college girl, one of the new bookcases
which combines several drawers with
the capacious shelves is an answer
to prayer. In addition there are all
kinds a n d varieties of hanging
shelves and of bookcases which are
made to fill into Tansook 0o' cranny.
Magazine racks and footstools take
up very little space and give the room
that "lived in" look. No matter what
else the college girl provides for her
room she is sure to get several lamps,
the more the merrier. To replace the
regulation stud,.nt lamp on the desk,
she usually selects a copper, hob-nail
glass or pottery base.
White lamps have been enjoying
a great vogue of late, being shown
in alabaster, marble, china, or pot-
tery. Polished steel has replaced the
old wrought iron standing lamps and
is proving much more attractive.
If you want to be more ambitious
about your furnishings, you might in-
vest in a studio couch. Such a couch
can open up into a regular double
bbd and in the day time can be very
adequately camouflaged Two end
tables placed at either end of the
couch will give the appearance of
arms and make the couch look like
a regulation davenport.
In case the desk provided by the
University does not prove adequate,
there are numerous types which can
be purchased. The kind which gives
the maximum amount of working
space is a flat-topped knee-hole desk.
All these pieces of furniture can be
found unpainted or finished in any
style or wood to fit the pocket-book.

'Tk of Michigan"
It is a desire for a bit of susten-
ance about ten o'clock, so they say,
that makes the students bolt classes
and seek State Street. But in the dim
past, such was not the case, for peach
trees which lined the campus had
an appeal all their own. Yes, back in
the days when slavery was the major
question instead of beer, the Univer-
sity spread itself upon a fertile farm
land with the good, old agricultural
atmosphere of wheat fields and all,
and students were not loath to take
advantage of the situation.
A few decades later when those
ducky little -"bowlers" were all the
rage, canes were the delight of men's
souls. The University had grown into
a stately institution now and boasted
nothing less than a white picket fence.
So in the year 1890 the senior class,
being very adept in putting two and
two together, decided that canes from
picket fences might be suitable and
proceeded to demolish parts of the
fence to inaugurate the well-known
"Cane Day."
e *
Realizing that each new group of
freshmen entering the University were
finding less and less interest in tra-
ditions, a committee was formed to
start a Traditions Day. It was held
the first of every year and the band,
the glee club, cheer leaders, and
speakers were, called in making what
might be considered a major pep
meeting. This was dissolved when
Orientation Week was innovated and
the Wednesday night program is a
remnant of its former form.
