t .secst
Of 'Little Love'
An audience of 300 enthusiastic
persons received the campus premiere
of Comedy Club's "Little Love," the
Hopwood prize play, by Vincent Wall,
Grad.,, last night at Lydia Mendels-
sohn Theatre with the greatest ap-
proval. Members of the cast took~
three curtain calls, with players and
audience calling for the author at
the last bow,
Seen in the lobby between acts
were a number of campus and fac-
ulty notables. Miss Ethel McCor-
mick, social director of the League,
was charming in a peach chiffon
semi-formal cut with swirls of the
materials about the ankles. Mrs.
Frank Oakes chose black chiffon with
, black lace yoke and black appliques
-n the bodice. Mrs. Allison Ind, dark
ind small, wore dark blue crepe cut
ong with flaring sleeves, while Mrs.
Donal Hamilton Haines chose a print
frock of red print. Mrs. Theoodre
Hornberger wore a brown and orange
print on a white background with
brown accessories and one of the new
brimmed hats. Mrs. Charles Koella
appeared in a print, the motif one of
piny flowers on a deep lavender back-
Students noted during the "be-
,ween-acts" were Harriet Oleksuich
In a stunning gray ensemble; gray
crepe dress with a gray lace yoke ex-
tending to form the cap sleeves. Ac-
zessories were hat, gloves, and pumps
of the same shade of dove-gray.
League commit tees
Tf Be Picked Soon
Committee positions in the League
must be determined by a week from
today, according to an announcement
made by Maxine Maynard, '35, pres-
ident of the League. All women who
intend to try-out for a committee
must apply before that time, so that
the committee chairmen may choose
their workers, she said.
The committees which are open
are house, reception, publicity,-art,
point system, undergraduate fund,
freshman project, and social. Appli-
cants in making their petitions should
state their particular capabilities, and
their previous activities.

"It is more difficult to get a dance
recital together than to stage a play,"
Valentine B. Windt director of Play
Production concluded after working
with Miss Emily White instructor of
rhythms classes, on the Gondoliers.
Whereas the play is chosen, the
dance must be created, and before
a dance can be created music with
inspiration and adaptibility to
rhythms must be found. Speech as
well as gesture aids the actor while
the dancer must rely on movement
alone for expression.
"Before a student should make a
public appearance he should have at
least a year's training in modern
dance technic," according to Miss
White. Besides he must have a feel-
ing for design and complete muscular
The dance recital like the play ne-
cessitates programs, costume and
lighting. However, the play includes
a technical staff and actors while the
dancers themselves, in the recital-to be
given Tuesday, May 8 in the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre, are in charge
of the technical end of the perform-
Collin Wilsey, '35, and Julia Wilson,
'36, maintain an active interest in the
recital. Not only have they created
dances and are taking part in them,
but they have also arranged a sched-
ule for rehearsals and are working
on the program committee.
Oren Parker, art director of Play
Production, besides participating in
the recital is responsible for the
lighting effects. Josephine Ball, '36, is
assisting with lighting and programs.
Thedance recital requiresa tre-
mendous amount of work and it is

White Coatis, Belted
And Swagger Style
AppearO)n Campus
Everyday we see something new in
the fashion line, or if not something
really new at least a little number
that has been newly resurrected. To-
day's surprise is the white coat which
has suddenly appeared in all its glory,
We have seen it in linen and in light
weight wools, in all styles, from the
swagger to the belted polo. White
pique coats are much in evidence,
made with full sleeves, large buttons,
and huge lapels. Such coats are being
worn over all kinds of dresses and
they look quite as good with pastel
frocks as with the all-white suits
which we have a sneaking suspicion
that many of them originally belonged
Several such costumes have been
prominent on campus, one of the most
striking being a very bright blue dress
which was combined with one of these
white coats, and another outfit was of
aqua crepe, with a matching hat
trimmed in white and of course the
white coat.
Gray and white is good too from all
we see on campus these days. One
of the most Priscillaish frocks was
gray crepe with a large, white collar
made with lapels and big white but-
tons. The belt was wide and finished
with a very large and ornate white
University investigation into the
Communist May Day excursion to
Detroit today took on the aspect of
a musical comedy farce when it was
definitely admitted by members of
Delta Kappa Epsilon that three of
their members participated in the

persons involved that such a thing
could be attempted. Inexperienced
dancers and other handicaps have
only served to spur the performers on,
for the propose to increase interestt
in the odern dance at all costs.
Student Studl$
Abroad Uder
Konmisar Ksky
Gladys Diehl, '33, ranked as the
leading character actress on the cam-
pus by directors last year, is reported
to have studied with Victor Kommi-4
sarjosky, prominent producer, duringz
her six weeks vacation from Oxford,
University where she has been study-t
ing this year.-
Miss Diehl will be rememberedt
for her work in "Hedda Gabler," "Hayt
Fever," "Romantic Young Lady," and
"Uncle Tom's Cabin." She was a mem-
ber of Comedy Club, the Michigan
Repertory Players, and a student in
Play Production.
Mr. Kommisarjosky is one of the
foremost producers, writers andc
teachers in the theatre today. He was
expelled from Russia where he had
been director and designer in many
leading imperial and Soviet theatres,
because of royal blood. Having been
forced to direct abroad when the banst
were lifted he decided to remain where1
he was and so has been teaching int
England for many years. Of the bookst
that he has written on the theatre,
the most popular are, "Myself and the '
Theatre," and "The Costume of the

entertained by the Ann Arbor Alumni
Club at dinner last night, and the ac-
tive chapter is giving her a dinner at

Dr. ii._Hockt(
Few people other than members ofL
Stalker Hall know what that organi-c
zation is, not to mention the partt
that it plays in the lives of the stu-t
dents who participate in the activitiesr
held there. One important enterprises
of this organization for Methodist stu-t
dents is the Henry Martin Loud en-
dowment fund which was donated forc
bringing religious lecturers to Ann Ar-t
bor. Until this year, a series of dif-t
ferent lecturers were heard weekly fort
ten weeks, but the new plan being
adopted this year proves to be even
more interesting and valuable.
Beginning Monday, May 7 through
May 10, Dr. William Hocking of Har-
vard University is to give a series of
afternoon and evening talks on va-
rious phases of religion. In order to
accommodate a large 'number of lis-
teners, the lectures will be given in
the League Ballroom instead of in
the, hall where all activities of the
organization are usually held.
Organized In 1912
The present hall, built originally by
the Presbyterian church, was pur-
chased by the Methodists about 1912
for the purpose of becoming a part
of thenational Wesley foundation,
under the name of Wesley Hal, but it
was renamed this year in remem-
brance of Dr. Stalker, former pastor
of the Methodist church.
Representatives from the Methodist
church at large, from the student
body, and some faculty members met
to organize. Members of the board,
chosen from church representatives,
were responsible for appointing an
individual to take care of student ac-
Foreign Education
Draws Americans
From the Press Relations Bureau
in New York City comes the report
that American students are being
attracted to education in foreign
countries, in increasing numbers, par-
ticularly in England. Statistics show
that the registration of these stu-
dents has more than tripled since
the inauguration of special courses
for them, and it is suggested that
this may be partially due, at least in
the case of women, to the fact that
the Prince of Wales bears the title,
President of the College Council. In-
creased internationalism also figures
as an explanation in the growth of
American enrollment,
American men and women register
in courses as divergent as music and
horticulture, and from government
research to missionary work. Besides
the winter session of three ten-week
terms which are offered, many take
advantage of the summer course,
held during the first three and a half
weeks in August, which will be re-
peated this year at Exeter. After a
year or more at Exeter these students
may continue their studies at the Uni-
versities of Oxford and Cambridge,
and are thus exempted from the year
of residence required by the Univer-

tivities. Their first choice was Dr.
Ellen Moore, for years on the faculty
of the Oriental language department.
Have Capable Directors
Dr. Timmerman and Dr. Bingham
now pastors in Columbus, O., and
Port Huron respectively, took up the
work after Dr. Moore, and a professor
of religion at Albion college, Dr. Sam-
uel Harrison, succeeded them. A grad-
uate student, Gordon Halstead, is now
acting in the capacity of director of
student affairs following a two-year
term by Dr. Blakeman.
The selection of a student in
charge is an incentive to the students
to take part in all activities afforded
them by the organization, and espe-
cially to make use of their Hall, which
