Vew Orientation.Program Will
Be Set Up By League Committee
Something new in the way of orien-
tating the freshmen has been devised
by the new League Council; the sys-
tem includes a prolongation of the
program for the freshmen so that it
will last, if not throughout the year,
at least for the first semester, Max-
ine Maynard, '35, new League presi-
dent, said yesterday.
Beginning with a committee of five
members of the faculty to serve as!
advisors, the plan provides that the
project will be carried out under the
direction of the president of the
League, a committee chairman, and
twenty women selected to act as
freshmen advisors for the twenty
The objective in mind is to further
the orientation of the freshmen
women by acquainting them with the
advantages and opportunities offered
by the University, and to develop, en-
courage, and bring about the atti-
tudes of this group toward their stu-
students and faculty with an em-
phasis on an intelligent attitude to-
ward them. "In other words," Miss
Maynard said, "the program will in-
clude all other topics such as the Hop-
wood Awards which will contribute
to the knowledge of more students
regarding the University and the
Explaining the arts and social
science studies will be another task
of the faculty members, together with
suggestions from them on social re-
Miss Ethel McCormick, social direc-
tor of the League, expressed approval
of the plan, saying that she expected
it to be very beneficial to the fresh-
man body as a whole. Miss Maynard
concluded her explanation saying,
"We have inaugurated this plan,
which will go into effect in September,
because so much of the future of the
University and of the League depends
upon the training of the freshmen,
and the attitude which they develop
toward the University."
Hilda Kirby, '35, has been placed in
charge of the comittee for the project
and plans are already being formed
for the coming year.

said in an informal talk last night
before members of Zeta Phi Eta
women's speech society.
The excessive cost of producing
any dramatic work was one explana-
tion for this statement. Stage crews
are very highly organized, he said,
and this expense, coupled with those
for advertising, transportation, and
rent costs has made the road show
almost non-existent. The Actors'
Equity, though admittedly a valuable
organization sometimes makes ex-
penses still heavier and any violation
of its codes results in a "black-ball"
for either producer or author, he de-
"A large factor in the centraliza-
tion of our drama in New York is
the enormous transient population
which is very much interested in the
theatre and makes a point of seeing
all the shows on visits to New York,"
the director told his audience.
"In many ways it is a bad thing
to have all our theatre in one part of
the country," Mr. Windt declared.
"Those who have no opportunity to
visit our one-drama center are de-
prived of much entertainment and
"The legitimate theatre will not
die. One of the chief reasons is that
the moving pictures can never have
the personal and intimate appeal of
the legitimate performance. Also the
moving picture, once made, cannot
be modified to contrast different au-
diences, as flesh-and-blood actors can.
adjust their performances subtly."
A concise definition of art was given
by Mr. Windt in the phrase, "Art is
the result of an artist's expression
of his personality through some me-
dium." He continued with a discussion
of current New York plays, among
those mentioned being "Dodsworth,"
"Moor-born," and "Ah! Wilderness."

In Manish Styles
In these spring, or shall we say sum-
mer days, there are numerous and
sundry methods of avoiding studying,
but none quite so popular as resorting
to the tennis courts for the after-
noon. No other place is quite so well
suited to acquiring that ultra-whole-
some tan, which is worn by the smart
women these days.
Along with the revolutionary move-
ments of the student communists we
have a final revolution in tennis garb.
Shorts are definitely coming to the
fore, the radical movement of a
short time back having triumphed.
Linen shorts are tne best with reg-
ular men's shirts appearing in com-
bination with them, or polo shirts giv-
ing that clean cut open-at-the-neck
For those co-eds who are not quite
so revolutionary the sun-backed sport
dress is still .in vogue. Appearing in all
sorts of cotton materials or in linen
the dresses are cut down far in the
back and for the most part are shown
with matching jackets to make them
suitable for street wear. Printed ma-
terials as well as pastel shades are
good and large buttons are often
used for trimming.
The shirtwaist frockbisnsecond1
choice for active sports, being mostr
popular in striped materials. All sports
dresses have fullness added to the=
skirt by means of pleats or by the1
wrap-around effect, and models with1
either short sleeves or none are shown.
A formal dinner tonight will honor
the staff responsible for the publica-
tion of the annual Martha Cook Year-
book. Doris Eneix, '34, editor-in-chief,
will present the first copy to Miss
Margaret Ruth Smith, social director,
during the course of the dinner. The
others will be distributed afterwards.
The staff includes: Virginia Whit-
ney, '35, assistant editor, Harriet
Cook, '35, art editor, Florence Shaw,
'34, athletic editor,;Julia Mary Hack-
ett, '35, snapshot editor, Mary Jane
Clark, '35, music and drama, and
Katherine Stoll, '35, Eleanor Blodgett,

Hadcock, '35, editorial assistants. Act-
ing as business manager was Esther
Henks, '35, assistedby. Betty Smith,

Katherine Coffield, '34, social chair-
man of the house, is in charge of
the dinner. Spring flowers and candles
will be used for decorations.

Several methods have been drawn
up in order that this purpose may be
accomplished, chief among them is
the plan for having an hour a week
set aside for discussion and, program
periods, led by faculty members and
students advisers. The upperclassmen
selected will be responsible for their
group as far as attendance personal
contact, and leadership are concerned.
Membership in the groups will not
be compulsory, Miss Maynard said.
Academic discussions and problems I
will include lectures on how to study,
how to arrange schedules, and other
similar topics. These lectures will be
personal contributions of the faculty
and will include suggestions to the
students for social qualities such as'
understanding, patience, hu m or,
soundness of character, self-confi-
dence, tact, tolerance, resourcefulness,
serenity, and a good emotional atti-
tude. The process of achieving crea-
tive leadership will be stressed.
"Activities" will be another of the
topics that will be explained by both
