t Freshmen women gownced in "angel
robes" stomp their spike heels as they
progress from station to station in the
health examination. They resent this
check. These women came here for
an education - not for serum injec-
"A Phi Beta Kappa record is not
nearly as great an asset as good
health," asserted Dr. Margaret Bell,
director of physical education for
women. "It is amazing how many stu-
dents we find in need of immediate
medical attention as a result of this
examination," she continued.
Three cases of active tuberculosis
and several cases of cancer - one
necessitating amputation - were dis-
covered in the sketchy examination
at the .commencement of summer
school. These women voluntarily en-
rolled in sport classes so unaware
were they of their handicaps.
"A health examination as complete
as the one given every fall by the
University costs, depending on the
clinic, anywhere from $25 to $150,"
stated Dr. Bell. Besides, if the stu-
dent's condition warrants it, the Uni-
versity provides for follow-up opera-
tions and further testing.
Each of the 18 health stations has
been instituted for a specific purpose.
Preventative advice given in case
of diabetic tendencies or changing of
the vascular system postpones the on-
set of these degenerative diseases for
many years. Recently the degenera-
tive diseases have replaced the infec-
tions on the mortality list.

Bride's Father Officiates
At Wedding In Home Of
Former Ann Arbor Girl
A wedding of interest in local circles
occurred Saturday when Miss Anna
Nicklas, former Ann Arbor girl, and
Paul G. Kauper, University graduate
and research assistant, were married
at the home of the former's parents
in Richmond, Ind..
The bride's father, Rev. A. L. Nick-
las, performed the ceremony, as the
couple stood before an improvised
altar of fall flowers. An Empire model
of white satin with long train and
a long veil of tulle was worn by the
bride. Miss Gertrude Nicklas, in pale
pink chiffon with a blue velvet sash
and a large hat of pink tulle and lace,
attended her sister as maid of honor.
Guests from Ann Arbor invited to
the wedding included Mrs. Lydia Die-
terle, Mr. and Mrs. Albert Fiegel, Miss
Gertrude Fiegel, and Mr. and Mrs.
Mr. and Mrs. Kauper left for a
wedding trip after the ceremony. Mr.
Kauper received his degree of juris
doctor at the University in 1932, and
he has since worked as assistant in
.legal research in the Law School. The
couple will reside in New York, where
Mr. Kauper is to be associated with
the firm of White and Chase.

For Adult Parts In
Mark Twain's Story
"Tom Sawyer" is being presented
come time near Nov. 1 by the Chil-
dren's Theatre of the League. The
Becky Thatchers, Toms, Hucks and
Jo Harpers have been trying out for
the past week and Russ McCracken,
director of the play, states that he has
successfully found Ann Arbor chil-
dren who will fit these parts.
But "Tom Sawyer" has some
grown-ups in it too, and it is the Doc
Robinsons and the Judge -Thatchers
that trouble has arisen. The theatre
is a project of the women on the
campus, but only in the Junior Girls
Plays do they ever play the part of
men. Tryouts are still being held this

"The Adventures of Tom Sawyer,,,
that immortal picture of boyhood life
written by Mark Twain, has been put
into play form by Paul Kester and is,
according to McCracken, a "reallyj
good" melodrama. The killing of Doc
Robinson in the cemetery is the im-
portant motivating factor in the
drama, and the vivid characters of
Tom himself, of Injun Jq, Aunt Polly
and the Widow Douglas, promise to
make any play "good."

In Angehl Hall
Alpha Nu, local chapter of Kappa
Phi Sigma, national men's speech so-
ciety, plans to continue its last year's
program of inter-club and intra-club
debates. These will be of both serious
and humorous character and the or-
ganization has high hopes of main-
taining the record which it establish-
ed last year by winning all of its de-
bates. It competes with both wo-
men's and men's speech societies.
In addition to debate there will be
a series of speeches and discussion
groups led by members. At the ini-
tial business meeting tomorrow night
in the Alpha Nu room in Angell Hall
plans will be made for a series of
smokers at which prospective mem-
bers will be entertained, after which
tryout speeches will be required. Any
man in any school in the University
is eligible for membership.
Officers of Alpha Nu for the coming
year are Karl Nelson, '37, President;
Edward Downs, '35, Vice-President;
Frank Aldrich, '37, Secretary; James
Eyre, '36, Treasurer; and Robert
Janda, '35, Senior Critic.

GREEN IS POPULAR
One of the most outstanding colors
this year seems to be green. However,
one does not wear green alone, but
uses red, and lots of it, as a con-
trast. If these two colors do not suit
your complexion, a rich golden brown
combined with yellow or orange is ex-
cellent for fall wear.
The Michigan Repertory Players, at
the conclusion of the 1934 Summer
Session, had finished their sixth and
most important season, according to
Valentine B. Windt, instructor of
speech. Under the direction of Mr.
Windt, and with the assistance of Mr.
and Mrs. Wyckoff, Mr. Francis
Compton and Frederick Crandall, a
noticeable advance in the technical
side of producing was made.
One of the most stupendous under-
takings that the group assumed was
the presentation of "Marco Miilions,"
the Eugene O'Neil satire on contem-
porary business. Costuming and scen-
ery were extremely complex yet im-
portant factors inthe success of the
play.' It was such a capable staff
that made the construction of these

one of these plays.
Witn an increase in the perfection
of the work done, there was a corre-
sponding increase in the patronage of
the Players. Mr. Windt stated that the
class has made itself definitely self-
