Orchestra Letder T ie
Here May 11
Maurie Sherman and his orchestra
have been signed to play for the
Architects' Costume Party to be held
May 11 at.Granger's Ballroom, ac-
cording to an announcement made
yesterday by Don Lyon, '34A, gen-
eral chairman. "We have been par-
ticularly fortunate in signing Sher-
man and have been able to do so only
because he is going to be on tour at
that time and had one open date to
be filed," Lyon said.
Sherman is well-known in and
around Chicago where he played at
many restaurants and night clubs.
He has the distinction of having
played the longest consecutive en-
gagement at College Inn in Hotel
The members of the orchestra will
don costumes in the spirit of the par-
ty, Lyon said. They will wear dark
trousers with a bright 9ummerband,
white shirts open at the throat, bright
waistcoats and red fezzes.
A perspective of the setting for the
party has been made by Prof. Roger
Bailey of the College of Achitecture
and is now on display in the winlow
of a state St. store. Work on the
decorations will be started at Gran-
ger's as soon as the working draw-
ings are completed, which should be
some time this week, Lyon said. The
winning design in the poster contest
which ended yesterday will also be
placed on display.

of a rehearsal involving at least 25
people as well as a stage crew con-

at last had recourse to Russell Mc-
Cracken, who seemed to be in charge
of the pandemonium.

Children's Play

This Week-End
"Jack and the Beanstalk," Chil-

ing January, will be revived in honor
of the Schoolmasters Club meeting
in Ann Arbor this week. The play
il be given at 3:30 p.m., Friday,
April 27, in the Lydia Mendelssohn
Admission will not be limited to
members of the Schoolmasters Club
because of the interest of others as
manifested by the sell-out houses
during the regular run of the play.
Tickets for members of the club will
be on sale at the desk where fees
are originally paid, and at the box
office for the general public. Julie
Kane, '36, newly elected JG.P. chair-
man, is in charge of the ticket sale.
"Jack and the Beanstalk" is being
presented by the Ann Arbor Chil-
dren's Theatre, the newest under-
graduate project on campus, which
is sponsored by the League, in co-
opel'ation with 'Play Production. The
production is creeled by 'Russell Mc-

Parker, '34A, niewly appointed art
director on the flay Production staff,

Charlotte Barrows Chorpenn ing, of
the Goodmpnan Theatre of Chicago,
which presents children's plays
throughout the year, is the author of
"Jack and the Beanstalk." This

children is based on the old legend
made famous by the Browning poem.
Tickets will be on sale for 25 cents.

which is to be produced as a "Glo-
gauer Super Jewel," but which after
it is completed on schedule, turns out
to be the wrong picture, due to the
similarity of the script basket and the
waste paper basket.
"Once in a Lifetime," as may be
guessed by this time, is a satire on
activities in that greatest of indus-
tries, the moving picture, as seen by
George Kaufman, who believes that
there is a Big Job in Hollywood for
anyone who can consistently turn sut
the wrong picture, the only possible
danger being that he might at some
time turn out the scheduled picture.
Actual Movie Set
An actual movie set, with all the
sound apparatus, cameras, lights, and
action, appears in the show, as well
as the people who would appear in
that environment of environments.
One of the technical difficulties of the
show, however, is the director's un-
controllable habit of eating India
nuts, which are opened with a re-
sounding crack, duly recorded on the
sound track. Incidentally this part
of the rehearsal was somewhat held
up, because of the fact that Goddard
Light, '35, who appears as the direc-
tor, had already eaten up all the
India nuts available in Ann Arbor. All
in all, "Once in a Lifetime" lives up
to the enviable reputation of all sat-
ires in the true Kaufman manner,
which includes such successes as
"Beggar on Horseback" and "Of Thee
We Sing."

LAWIRENCE, Kan., April 23. --
Rushing activities for sororities at
the University of Kansas have been
moved up to a point where they do
not interfere with the activities of
freshman week by recent action of the
Panhellenic Council here.
Under the new rusihng rules all
rushees must come here the Wednes-
day 10 days before the opening of
classes. TPeas and dinners will be
held at the various houses Thursday
and Friday, with a final party at the
"preferential" house on Ss turday
night, and preference slips will be
made out Sunday morning. Hence
formal pledging will be held Sunday
night, when rushing week will be of-
ficially over.
It was explained that the change
was necessary so that formal pledg-
ing would not interfere with the op-
ening activities of the Freshman
Week, starting with the opening con-
vocation Monday night. It was point-
ed out that women who were pledged
late Monday afternoon were invari-
able late to the convocation.
Socfedad Hispanica will meet at
7:30 tonight at the League. Robert

What's the use in getting all het
up about spring anyway? No sooner
are you on the verge of relegating all
your winter wardrobe to the attic
than along comes another wintery
blizzard and you have to dig the fur
coat out of mothballs and rescue the
galoshes from oblivion.
Despite chilly blasts there is one
spring style which persists and which
can be worn under the warmest of
coats just to prove to the world that
you are optimistic at least. This is
the print frock, which appears every
year as the harbinger of warm weath-
er clothes.
This year the print has shown a
decidedly yellow note which has cap-
tured all the hypothetical sunshine
whch is so lacking lately. Brown is
used as a background in the yellow
prints and is also good combined with
A newly popular combination is
that of dark blue and green. It may
sound rather "mal-de-merish" to the
uninitiated, but is in reality very
smart and striking. An outfit recent-
ly seen on campus which used this
color scheme to advantage was a
short-jacketed suit of dark blue sheer
wool. The dress was finished at the
neck with a large ruffle of green and
blue striped taffeta which was worn
over the jacket.
Ruffs of organdy or of other sheer
white materials are often worn to
lighten the print frock. Three large
organdy posies tucked coyly under the
chin are also a very popular trim-
ming and another is the lacy, ruffly
jabot which can make almost any
frock look delightfully feminine.
There will be a meeting of Alpha
Kappa Delta, honorary sociology so-
ciety, tonight at 8 p.m. at the home
of Prof. Robert C. Angell. Several
of the student members will talk on
their particular field of research.
