Art Exchange
Shows Exhibit
Of Modern Art
Sculptural Pieces, Pastels,
Water Colors Are Done
By Exchange Members
Widely varied uses of color, and
unique massing of form mark the
predominant notes in the modern art
show sponsored by the Students' Art
Exchange, which opens at 3 p. m.
Sunday, a week earlier than previous-
ly announced, in the League.
Members of the Exchange have
used old and new mediums to get
new effects in their compositions, and
previewers claim that no little dis-
cussion will be caused by this distinct
change in the type of work the Shop
has been selling in the past year.
A conception of Syrian native life
done in water color and a pastel de-
picting life in a "Black and Tan" are
two of the outstanding works by
Banque Aubrey, Grad. A new slant on
student life, water colors by Frank
Lee Cochran and H. K. Beecher, jun-
iors, will be shown. Gerry Bauer;
Grad., has several water colors done
in unusual color schemes. A back of
a mirror has been used by Mason
Whitney, '34, for his composition.
Other contributors are Edith Higbie,
Dorothy White, and Lewisieuseman.
graduate students. Jonathan Taylor,
Grad., has done a unique etching
of human. forms, and Alexis Lapteff
Grad., has submitted an oil in the
style of Gauguin, the artist who was
famous for his South Sea composi-
tions. Several sculptural pieces by
Helen Bailey, Grad., and John Alls-
house, Grad., will be shown.
Many other members of the Ex-
change will be showing their work,
using everything from oils and water
colors to wood and glass in giving
their versions of the new idea in art.

Rail Chiefs Not To Make

WASHINGTON, Veb. 16. -- (/P ---A
White House plea that railroad wages
be continued without further reduc-
tion will receive consideration by rail
Railway executives gathered in
Chicago let it be known today that
Mr. Roosevelt's proposal would be
placed for discussion alongside one of
their own- a 15 per cent cut in the
basic pay rate effective July 1.
Only by Federal intervention was
a quarrel between railroad executives
and their employes settled last fall
with agreement on a 10 per cent re-
duction in the basic rate. The rail
chiefs now propose another 5 per
cent slash.
Employe views, voiced through A.
F. Whitney, chairman of Railway La-
bor Executives, were that "the rail-
roads are not suffering from the wage
scales paid their employs."
In a formal statement opposing the
projected 15 per cent cut, issued soon
after the President's plea, Whitney
"The real difficulty with the rail-
road industry is caused by the bur-
densome load of fixed charges and
the refusal of railway bondholders to
contribute their share to the relief
of the industry. Railway labor is not

disposed to continue to assume that
In his request to both rail labor
and executives the President said an
extension of the present wage agree-

Most Popular Girl

Modern Version Of Pied Piper

Is Given ByChildrens'



--Associated Press Pnoto
Miss Theresa Fleming, of the Uni-
versity of Oklahoma, has been voted
the most popular girl in the Oklaho-
mia campus in an all-campus vote
in which only men were allowedto
take part. She lives in St. Louis, Mo
Brillan Clitps Are
Worn hInIa rAn1d
A . New Earrins
After a brilliant J-Hop week-end,
we find that we are more and more
formal-conscious. And after watching
niany and various varieties of formal
outfits floating past us for hours
on end at the premier social function
of the campus, we have come to the
conclusion that the accessories and
not the gown itself make or break
the eostum .
Of course, the most imi(wt1ant ac-
cessory of the costume is the jewelry
worn with it. Of late, interest has
bsen focused on the head dress be-
ca use of the great: popularity of the
tiara, an innovation or rather reno-
vation, which has had us all doing
our level best to act regal and state-
flowever, with the approach of
spring and the softer and more dain-
ty fabrics which have come into
prominence, the glittering tiara of
rhinestones is losing its popularity.
Bands of material which match or
contrast with the gown are still much
worn, and feathers are also seen,
Jewelry for the hair is now worn
lengthwise on the head. Brilliant
clips, along the part, are very, very
new and, when you get over the
shock, very attractive. Other clips
are of course still worn in various
positions, those which simulate feath-
ers being generally adjudged the
As for earrings, clip styles are
smartest there too. There are many
new shapes, all of which accent the
natural outlines of the ear, some
spiralling around the lobe and others
following the rim of the ear with a
sweeping upward curve.
Fe ininity Is
efinitely 'In';
uffles Srt
Appear as tom-boyish as you like
on the campus in low heels and sport
suits this spring, but when starlit
evenings come, you must possess the
utmost in femininity. Looking over
the informal frocks for the coming
months, one sees a vista of ruffles
and delicate fabrics, with smart sim-
plicity of cut.
The materials for the evening are
primarily laces, nets, starched chif-
fon, which is mistaken for organdie,
and that newest of sheer cloths, mat-
elasse chiffon. The latter, by the way,
is pronounced mat-a-less-ay. It is a
chiffon with the blistered effect
which crepe achieved during the
chillier months. The latest in lace is
an angel skin, (peau d'ange), and is
silky smooth to the touch with the
most minute of designs in its weave.
The tints, for one no longer wears
re'al colors, are na~vy blue, of cours,
nile green, beige, and that subtle yel-
low called champagne. Nile green is a
refreshing shade of pure "vividity
which combines easily with yellow
and white. Silver or gold accessories
can be worn if you're worried aboum
uing the old accessories with your
new frock.'
For informal wear, backs may b
moderately low or slit, just to add
tm dresscd manner. Peplums give a

1C .w flaring line, and rufles center
out the neck or cascade fromiu
waist in back to the floor acd then
Ve a sweet and girlish air. SliOleers
still are out of favor and cap or
diop sleeves cover them almost oblig-
igly. Corrugated pleats are well
planned for the net frock which calls
for a more striking line.
If the sheer fabrics do not appeal
this early in the year, the problem

It was 750 years ago that a mys-
terious stranger dressed in a motley
coat of red and yellow played magi-
cal tunes on his pipe, such that all
the children of Hamelin followed him
into the mountain and were never
seen again.
A modern version of the old leg-
end, written recently by Charlotte
Barrows Chorpenning, Will be given
by the Children's Theatre of Ann
Arbor on Mar. 1, 2, and 3 at Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre.
Mrs. Chorpenning wrote her play
during the time when Chicago vot-
ers were attempting to oust Thomp-
son from the mayorial position. The
resulting story is a gay political sat-
ire on conditions in Chicago, in which
the reason for the infestation of rats
is that the mayor of Hamelin was
the owner of a rat-trap factory, and
therefore required all the people to
buy his useless, inefficient traps.
The Pied Piper arrives, and is hired
to drive the rats away, but receives
no payment after he does so. In
revenge he pipes all the children
away. All those poor adults who

An actual celebration of the ap-

where the event is supposed to have

undoubtedly back of the legends,
since Hamelin, in common with many
other cities of the middle ages, did
suffer from numerous plagues caused
by rats, and a stranger did come to
the town and offer to rid it of the
Numerous versions of the story
have grown up, one of the early ones
being French, called the Rat-Catcher,
n which the Piper, oddly enough,
pays the bag-pipes. The coventional
version, of course, is that of Brown-
ing in his children's poem "The Pied
Piper of Hamelin."
Our mothers wept at the Josephine
Preston Peabody version of the Ory
written in a fake Maeterlinck style
and based on a spinster morality, in
which the Piper eventually realizes
that he had done wrong in taking
the children from their parents, amd
remorsefully returns them. This play
has a new angle in that a "tearjerk-
er" scene inside the m'untain is
shown, in which all the poor parent-
less children appear, and the piper
is persuaded to return them. The
present v e r s i o n, however, is ap-
proached from satiric ratheri than
a melodramatic angle.

Women Are Permitted

Women may still be denied en-
trance to the Michigan Union through
the front door, but for the first time-
they are privileged to use the intra-
mural athletic equipment. Thirteen
squash-racket courts are available to
women Tuesday and Thursday morn-.
ings, according to Miss Hilda. Burr,
instructor in Physical Education for
women. Those students interested in
playing are requested to leave their,
names at Barbour gymnasium.
Squash-racket issthe English game
"racket" with a soft India rubber
ball, designated as a "squash," sub-
stituted for the usual hard white
skin-covered ball made of closely
compressed cloth. The game, now
popular in clubs and univetsities,
grew into vogue in public houses. In-
deed, until recent years all those who
successfully competed for the posi-
tion of racket champion were born
or brought up in debtor's prison.
The sport is played in an enclosed
-- -- - - -; --

space, the front wall of which is
marked with a service and a base
line. The server stands in a box half
way down the court and in two trials
must strike the ball above the service
line in such a manner that it pitches
into the back court without touching
either sides or ceiling first.
The opponent must- retrieve the
"squash" before its second bounce
and return it to the front wall above
the play line, A game consists of 15
points and a person serves until he
loses a point;
The technique of handling a squash-
racket differs from that of tennis in
that the racket is manipulated with
the wrist instead of the arm. Since
the player may be required to take
the ball in any position, the greater
the number of joints at his command
the greater will be the ease with
which he can meet the unexpected
return. However, the similarities be-
tween the two games are close enough
so that our champion netters prac-
tice squash racket during the winter
months to beep in practice for the
spring tennis season.
Earl Riskey, assistant director of
intramural sports, coaches the game.
If a student is endowed with natural
athletic ability, Mr. Riskey is able to'
develop her technique until she dis-

ELECTRIC SIGNS bring customers to your store.
Merchants frequently report trade increases
of from 10 to 50 % after installing a new
electric sign. Pedestrians cannot escape its
influence, for light is a natural magnet of
HERE are some hints which, for a few cents a
day, will make your sign lighting more effec-
tive: 1. Leave your sign on later in the eve-
ning-until 11:30 or 12:00 o'clock. 2. Light
your sign earlier - at 4:30 in the afternoon,
3. On dark days turn it on earlier.
IT WILL be profitable for you to leave your
sign on longer hours during the evening.
Electric signs sell for you after the store is
closed, burning your message on the public
mind. Let your sign tell its story to the after-
theatre crowds at night.
THEL EFFECTIVENESS of sign lighting is not
limited to night-time.: Late afternoon finds
increasing numbers of pedestrians on the
street - all of them potential customers.
Turn your signs on early enough to impress
these afternoon shoppers, while your store is
open for business.
YOUI SIGN is your 'tcallhig card"-'to your
customers. Keep it effective.
