Given Again At
League Theatre

'Jack And The Beanstalk'
Is To Be Presented For
Schoolmasters' Club
"Jack and the Beanstalk," Chil-
dren's Theatre production which
played to capacity houses last Jan-
uary, will be given again at 3:30 p.m.
Friday in the Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre in honor of those attending
the Schoolmasters Club meetings.
Admission will be 25 ceits for chil-
dren, and 50 for adults, although
members of the Schoolmasters club
will be admitted for 25 cents.
Plans are now being made by the
Children's Theatre, an undergraduate
project carried on in co-operation
with Play Production, for the season
next year. Five plays have been se-
lected tentatively, and three will be
chosen from this number by a vote
taken among the school children of
Annn Arbor.
These plays include two plays writ-
ten especially for the Ann Arbor Chil-
dren's Theatre, "Wassillisa and The
Baga-Yaba" by Ruth Cox, '34, and "A
Modern Cinderella" by Russell Mc-
Cracken. It is the eventual aim of the
theatre to produce all original plays.
The other three plays under con-
sideration include adaptations of
Barrie's "Peter Pan," Grimm's "The
Emperor's New Clothes," and "Rum-
plestilskin," which opened last week
in Chicago's Goodman Theatre,
where children's plays are produced
throughout the year.
The Children's Theatre presents
plays with adult actors, except in
parts which distinctly require chil-
dren. Participation in the Theatre is
open to townspeople as well as to
students, and League activity points
are given for student work.
1935 J.G.P. Scripts
T lRe Discussed Soon
Sophomore women interested
in writing manuscr.ipts for the
1935 Junior Girls Play are invited
to a discussion meeting to be held
at 4 p.m. Tuesday in the League,
said Julie Kane, '36, general chair-
man yesterday.
Russell McCracken, director of
this year's production "Gang's All
There" will tell the women the
basic principles of play-writing.
Dance Classes
To Combine In
Recital May 8
Miss White Is Director Of
Joint Production At The
League Theatre
Dance Club, physical education
rhythzm classes, and Play Production
rhythm classes have conbind their
talent to present a dance recital Tues-
day, May 8, ini the tydia Mendel-
ssohn Theatre. More than en an d
women ar particiating. The recit
will consist of a variety of dances in-
cluding natural co-ordinated move-
ment as well as stylization anda ind i-
Although rhythm classes are essen-
tially designed for training of the
body to rhythmic movement, tance
Club is essentially interested inre
formation and carrying ut of dances.
Play Production, on the other hand,
is concerned with the dance as a
means of xpression and conibutes
several rhythmic pntonimes to the
program. All c ass s are in charge of
Miss Eminy Wthite, instrucor' i
physical education.
Thse groups are striving to make

modern dance, contemporary trends
in non-social daning, an outstand-
ing part of the entertainment of the
University. The modern dance works
with dance forms and aims at inter-
pretation whereas social dancing con-
tains the same elements as formal
folk dancing. The fact thatt he Balet
Russe received a tremendous ovation
in the Metropolitan Opera House and
that Isador cDuncan's school of
dance based on flexibility of body
movement attracts a large following
is proof enough of the popularity of
mocrn dance forms elsewhelre.

Mrs. Wassily Besekirshy will be
hostess to the act ives and patroiesses
of Mu Phi Epsilon, national honorary
musical sorority, at a formal musicale
Saturday night at her home on Dev-
onshire Road.
The program, in charge of Miss
Ragnhild Moe, will have asits theme,
"Music of the Scandinavian Coun-
tries." Miss Moe, herself Norwegian,
will give a travelogue to be inter-
spersed by a musical program which
is as follows: Margaret Swetnam, '34,
soprano, accompanied by Miss Louise
Nelson, will sing "Black Roses" and
"The First Kiss," both by Sibelius. A
cello "Sonata in A Minor" will be
played by Ruby Peinert, '34SM, ac-
comipanied. by Mary Helen Munson.
Four trios, "The First Primrose" and
"Elfintanz" by Grieg; "On a Crystal
Throne," a Swedish folk song; and J
"The Lovely Rose," a Finnish folk
song, will be sung by Margaret Swet-
nam, '34, Virginia Ward, '34SM, and
Clara Wilson, Grad.
Miss Moe will conclude the program
by singing a few of the more familiar
Norwegian folk songs, lullabies, and
dance melodies, and by playing sev-
eral Grieg selections.
Formal initiation will be held for
Helen Harrod, '35, Albion; Victoria
Toteff, '35, Toledo, O.; and Madeleine
Hadcock, '35, Bay City, at the home
of Mrs. D. E. Seeley on Lafayette
Drive, on Sunday afternoon at five
o'clock. Following the ceremony the
actives and guests will be entertained
at the home of Mrs. James Hamilton,
Hilldene Manor.

The eyes of the fashion world have
been directed for so long upon the
innovations in hats that the oppositej
extremities have been a bit neglected.
For a long time we have ignored the
question of shoes, but suddenly we
have, discovered that there has been a
radical change. The white season has
come upon us all unaware.
For the most part the new white
shoes are being shown in the rough,
leathers, in porcupine, madrucca and
tynette, which despite its very French
name is calf with a pressed finish.
There has been no very definite
change in style, pumps, ties, and
T-straps being just as good as ever.
Sandals promise to be very good for
later summer wear.
Campus and spectators sports shoes
all feature the boulevard heel which
is a built-up leather heel of a com-
fortable height for walking. For more
active sports wear or to combine with
the extremely sporty costume there
is the very low-heeled or heelless
sport shoe. The most popular styles
come with leather soles instead of
rubber this season.
Rough leathers are used for this
type of shoe also and the kiltie tongue,
which was such a fad last year is
still very much seen. Several of these
sport shoes are being shown with a
zipper fastening instead of ties.
Of course for those who are a bit
bashful about bursting forth in shin-
ing white so early in the season dark
blues and grays provide the spring-
like touch and look a little more suit-
able in a snow storm.
