owe Tells Feats
Of Modern Drama
"It is now an engineering feat to
put on a play," Prof. Kenneth T. Rowe
of the English department, told mem-
bers of Black Quill, national literary
society for women, at a recent meet-
Professor Rowe described in an in-
formal talk entitled "Contemporary
American Drama," the difficulties
confronting producers of the modern
play, such as the moving, shiftinp
or sectional stage; the partial black-
out with the curtain still up; the mul-
ti-i'oomed stage. The latter device
one of the most difficult to handle
is used where it is desirable to show
action in several rooms at the same
time and is being utilized in the
play "She Loves Me Not" soon to
come to Ann Arbor."

tions are entertaining with parties

New Works 0J A rt
Are On Display At
A huge transparent green glass jug
is the first thing that is seen at the
entrance of the Student Art Exchange
lately. The jug, which comes from
Sweden, is one of the many used to
bring acetic acid into the United
States. Both the jugs, and the wicker
hampers that protect them, are now
being used for many art purposes. The
jugs are being used for lamps, and
some artists have planted miniature
gardens in them, placing the tiny
plants in the jug through its narrow
neck by means of long tongs.
Other new things are also being
exhibited by the Exchange. Several
new etchings by Jonathan Taylor, are
on display; they are all done in very
soft tones. "Here Lyeth," a water
color by Al Kramer offers a melan-
choly study of a New Hampshire
graveyard. Another entitled, "Back
Street" and the former were both
done while the artist was vacation-
ing in Portsmouth, New Hampshire,
this summer.
John Koshy, 34A, born and reared
in India, has on display several in-
teresting pen and ink drawings of
that country. The native scenes de-
picted are both from Kottayam-Trav-
ancore, India.
"Madonna" and "The Nun" are the
names of two works in sculpture
placed on display by Harry Reed.
Helen Maynard, '34A, has added to
the collection several new batiks.
Completing the display is not a new,
but still an interesting, study by Helen
Bailey. It is called, "The Porcelain
Child" and received mention at the
Michigan Artist's Show held in De-
troit last fall.
The Exchange plans to have a
spring color show in the near future,
according to Miss Dorothy White,
Annual Exchange Diner f
Held At Helen Newberry
In their annual exchange dinner
last night, Helen Newberry enter-

freshmen and sophomores dined at

has grown into a traditional an-
nual banquet, was managed at Helen
Newberry under the direction of Dor-
othy MacLaren, '36.
