Prof. Meinecke
Gives Recital
At High School
Prof. Bruno Meinecke of the Lat-
in department gave a violin lecture
and recital before a high school au-
dience last night in Gladwin. The
recital was given under the--auspices
of the Extension Division of the
Professor Meinecke discussed the'
violin as a musical instrument, and
described its history, construction
and technique. His program con-
sisted of nine numbers ranging from
the strictly classical to the modern.
In the afternoon "Requisites for
True Listening To Music" was the
topic of Professor Meinecke's lecture.
He accompanied the talk by a prac-
tical demonstration on the piano in-
cluding one of his own compositions.
Mosher Hall entertained Union
Opera cast at tea. Several sororities
announce pledgings and hold formal
initiations. Zeta Tau Alpha gives
faculty dinner.

mal initiation on Monday for the

With the rapid advent of the holi-
day season, everyone is more or less
pressed for time, and the very thought
of "Time" suggests a gift that is both
distinctive and useful. The modern1
clocks, and especially those equipped
with electric motors, have attained
their climax of perfection in beauty
of case, quietness and dependability,
One of the newest and most striking
models comes in a choice of "White,
African" or "Green Sam" Raphael

strongly supported by a back foot

gold-finished bezel with etched-in-
white Roman numerals. The gold-fin-

If you favor just the plain, practical
alarm, two very smart styles are of-
fered. One is a pleasing design for
the dresser or boudoir table. The case
is of black moulded material, set in a
moulded ivory base, while an ivory
Catalin alarm shut-off knob com-
pletes the color contrast.
Another alarm is cleverly made
with a dial that can be clearly illu-
minated through diffusing glass by
means of a tiny lamp that burns
bright or dim, as you desire. It has a
"dura-alloy" case with a non-tarnish-
ing finish and a moulded black base.
"Signalette" Is Popular
A more disguised alarm clock is
called a "signalette" and is made in
the popular and modern easel-type
pattern. Its polished gold-finish metal
frame and supports, presents a strik-
ing contrast to its glossy black, plas-
tic base.
Has Illuminated Dial
A more elaborate style has the
illuminated dial and is also equippedI
W.A.A. To Hold Ski,
Tobogganing PartyI
W.A.A. is sponsoring a skiing and
tobogganing party from 2 to 4 p.m.
today in the Arboretum. Following
the outdoor activities, hot chocolate
will be served in the lounge of Pal-
mer Field House. Betty Evans, '36,
W.A.A. outdoor sport manager is in
charge of the affair.
Women attending can either- buy
their own equipment or use the skiis

by W.A.A. Anyone interested is in-
vited and special instruction will be
given beginners.

Several nude mezzo-tints, made by
a recently developed process, are on
dig y in the concourse. These were
mdde by Prof. Mastro Valerio of the
art department, who is one of the
most skilled artists in the country
along this particular line. Mezzo-
with a unique 24-hour automatic
alarm feature. The latter allows one
to set the bell to ring at, for example,
7 a.m. and have it remain silent at
7 p.m. It comes in attractively mould-
ed walnut color, with gold-finished
handle and feet.
Naturally, the kitchen needs ac-
curate dependable electric time, and
to meet this want is a distinctive
wall-model. It comes in a chrome-
plated brass case with "Beetle"
moulded bezel and is available in
green, white, blue, or red.
For the home-study or office, the
model called "minitman" is smart
with its modernistic lines. It has a
brown mahogany case that is cleverly
blended and matched by Satinwood
ornamental front and top panels, and
a statuary bronze escutcheon plate.
Three druni-type dials indicate the
hours and minutes that pass by on a
revolving disc. A small electric lamp
illuminates the numerals.
Shown Without Alarms
For those who care more for refine-
ment of case, several beautiful models
are made without the alarm. One is
appropriately named the "starman,"
because tiny stars replace the cus-
tomary numerals on the dials. It
comes in a square wood panel case
of ldcquer-finished walnut, with a
chrome plated band and a black dial
with silver stars.
Reverting to Colonial days for its
design is the half-size banjo wall
model clock. It has a mahogany case
with colored glass panels, underneath
which is inlaid an early American
"clipper-ship" scene. It is ideal for
either the living-room or bedroom
'Give Us Rhythm'
Closes Run TodayI
The Michigan Union Opera, "GiveI
Us Rhythm," now playing at Lydia
Mendelssohn Theater, will close its
five-day run today with two per-
formances, a matinee at 3:30 p.m.
and the regular night performance
at 8:30 p.m.
After the completion of the run
in Ann Arbor, there will be a possibil-
ity that the opera may go on the
road, covering nearby cities in either
the week preceding or the week fol-
lowing Christmas vacation, accord-
ing to unofficial statements of opera
heads who have declared that there
has been considerable agitation by
alumni of the University for a topr.
According to opera officials tickets
for today's performances, priced at
75 cents, $1, and $1.25 for the matinee
and $1, $1.25, and $1.50 for the night
performance, may be secured from

Pencil Sketches Shown
Professor Fairbanks is also dis-
playing pencil sketches of his sons,
which arp unusually effective. Al-
though these are not for sale, orders
may be placed for similar sketches.
Some striking pastels by Frederic
Aldrich of the art department are
being shown. An unusual faithful-
ness of detail is found in a brilliant]
still life of a bowl of chrysanthemums,
while an unusual fall landscape is ,
outstanding for the vivid reds of
the colorings of the trees. (An apple
orchard, in soft shades of greens and
blues, with masses of white blossoms
is an unusually beautiful painting.) I
A group of etchings by Wilfred B.
Shaw, Dr. Warren Lombard, profes-
sor-emeritus of physilogy, and Jona-
thon Taylor, are exceptional features
of the exhibit. Vivid water colors,
done with dashing strokes are shown
by Mrs. May Brown and John Clark-
son. In the art exchange room Ross
T. Bittinger of the art school is ex-
hibiting unusual prints.

and creams, others include mas-

the needs of her family that she cannot
find it. I want to give her more after-

than they have ever tasted before.
I can cook a complete dinner for s

the table. I use no more electricity than
an electric toaster.
