the admiring public at the cost of
severe colds in the head and a vague

gitimate season for white shoes has
Following closely upon the advent
of white shoes we have white acces-
sories of all kinds suddenly making
their appearance. Gloves have not
only gone all white but they are mak-
ing their appearance in the most
summery of summer fabrics. Organ-
dy is featured in all sorts of gloves.
Among the varieties we have the all
organdie glove with a frill-like cuff
of the same material trimmed with
eyelit embroidery.
Organdy is combined with almost
any other material "what is," for in
addition to these styles we have
gloves of pique, mesh, and of a lastex

terials too, to combine with all your

"The Parade," interpreted by men
and women from Play Production, is
one of the most effective composi-
tions of the Dance Recital to be
given Tuesday, May 8, in Lydia Men- '
delssohn Theatre.
It is a dramatic stylization com-
posed by Doris Humphreys, promi-
nent modern dancer who is presenting
a program in the Dramatic Season.

hearsals for the recital studied under
Miss Humphreys before she came+
here. Miss White in her capacity of

. Working on Modern Dance
These students are working with
the modern dance which in its best
and broadest sense signifies contem-
porary trends in non-social dancing.
It is distinct from formal folk danc-
ing in that it plays with the forms
and possibilities of dance for its own
sake. Just as in the other modern arts
emphasis is placed on interpretation
and design rather than literary and
sentimental ideas.
The modern dance necessitates a
fuhdanrental feeling for rhythm and
total body .movement, and is there-
fore more intricate than the tap .or
tango in which steps are the prin-
ciple consideration. The modern dance
is a creation. Music must be chosen,
the dance modelled to it and then
practiced. It takes years of study to
acquire a high degree of, technical
Because of the complexity of the
modern dance a recital requires a
tremendous amount of work. Miss
White has held rehearsals every after-
noon and evening since the beginning
of the new semester.
Two Compositions Included
Collin Wilsey has developed two
compositions of unusual interest, the
Bach' choral and the fire dance of
De Falla. The former will center on

The initiation was conducted by

design and movement rather than re-
ligion, although a chorus will sing,
"Now Let Every Tongue Adore Thee."
The latter is an invocation to fire,
primitive in spirit. Three groups dance
against a'rhythmic background.
Five men, Oren Parker, art direc-
tor for Play Production, Lester Grif-
fith, Frank Funk, Carl Ellsworth, and
Truman Smith collaborated in the
formation of a dance. The movements
show the struggle between good and
evil, wherein evil triumphs.
Charles Harrell has designed a
number satirizing war, in which the
characters are capitalists, clergymen,
and common people. It will be done
on three different levels.
A composition done to the music
of Satie, modern French composer,
has been worked out by Julia Wilson
in the archaic Greek manner. Em-
phasis is on balance and the whole

Because of enthusiastic receptions
the recital will also include two repe-
titions. The Political Meeting will
again be put on by Play Production.
It is a dramatic stylization executed
in - three different rhythms. Instead
of piano accompaniment, a wooden
.block will be used to set the rhythm.
Each beat signifies a reaction to a
speech, and the orator reflects the
accents of all three groups. "Cac-
chuca," a gay dance from the Gon-
doliers, will also be repeated.

working on solos: Harry Pick, Mary

Artist's Studio
Is Settin i For
'A Little Love'
First Hopwood Winner Is
To Be Produced Here;
Was On Week's Tour
A typical artist's apartment located
in Greenwich Village forms the basis
for the set of "A Little Love," a draw-
ing-room comedy by Vincent Wall,
Grad., which is to be given May 3,
4, and 5 by Comedy Club.
The set represents the efforts of
the artist himself, and indicates that
a dabbler in aft may come near the
point of artistry, although just miss-
ing it. In this case the set, in reality
designed by Howard Fettes, '34, has
modernistic walls of yellow with
brown horizontal lines superimposed
and woodwork of a contrasting blue.
The whole effect is one of near-
artistry which nevertheless lacks a
certain element of synchronization.
The costumes, planned by Ann
Verner, '35L, and Ferol Brinkman,
who is directing the play, are to be
modern clothes harmonizing with the
colors of the set. The costumes used
in the Ann Arbor production will be
completely different from those used
when Comedy Club toured several.

tion with the same show.
" The leads in the play, which is a
Hopwood prize winner of last spring,
will be taken by Ruth Hussey, Grad.,
and David Zimmerman, '35, with the
supporting leads taken by Ann Ver-
ner, '35L, and Jay Pozz, '34. "A Little
Love." which is a full three-act play,
is the first winner of a Hopwood

prize to be actually

The week-end was a gay one, withA
the Military Ball, traditionally col-
orful, and its attendant dinners and
parties. There is something about'
a display of uniforms, sabres and
boots, and gorgeous gowns that ap-
peals to the romantic in all of us
and the yearly military parade brings
with it an atmosphere of joyousness
that pervades the whole town.
In addition to this'notable event
there was a Bowery Ball at Theta
Chi fraternity Friday night with folks
driving up in buggies, the house made
over to look like a scene from the his-
toric Bowery, and everyone in typi-
cal costumes.
Annual "Village" Party
The Alpha Rho Chi -fraternity en-
tertained a great number of guests
at their annual Greenwich Village
dances Friday and Saturday nights.
Everyone attended in smocks and be-
tiets, and the rooms were very clev-
erly decorated in murals and paint-
ings to resemble several different
types of stock settings. The murals
were a joy to see, one room represent-
ing a night club, with a chorus of
Harlem gals dancing gayly on the
walls. Another room was called Chi-
natown, with dragons in all colors
and sizes on the walls and ceiling.
A Turkish harem room was done in

- on't Risk Home Cleaning
Most spring and sunmer silks contain synthetic fibres (Celanese and Rayon).
fn addition to the fire hazard, home cleaning and pressing of these fabrics with un-
known solvents or spot removers and uncontrolled iron temperatures is risky.
Microcleaning deodorizes and thoroughly removes all traces of soil - yet its
gentle action does not affect the natural oils or basic dyes-in the fabrics. No excess
oils or fats left or put into the garment to pick up dust and dirt.
"Care -will save your clothes and Microcleaizing is the finest care you can give theon"
