Not Completely Filled
Manuscripts for the Junior Girls
Play are due November 1, Julie Kane
'35, general chairman, announced yes-
terday. All junior women are eligible
to submit original manuscripts for
the musical comedy and those whc
are new on campus are especially
urged to try writing a play. Last
year's- play, "Gang's All There" was
written by Jean Keller, who trans-
ferred to Michigan her junior year
and the year before the two leads
in the production were off-campus
students, so there is definitely a place
for new talent.
Russell McCracken, dramatic di-
rector of the League, who will again
direct the J.G.P., is ready to give ad-
vice to aspiring authors and suggests
that those who are just beginning
their, manuscripts bring rough drafts
of. the,plot to him for .criticism. Mr.
McCracken's office is in the Under-
graduate office of the League.
Any junior woman interested in a
committee job in connection with the
play is also asked to leave her name
for Julie Kane at the Undergraduate
The Junior Girls' Play is a musical
comedy traditionally presented by the
junior women of the University dur-
ig the third week in Marsh. It is the
most important single campus activity
for women and gives an opportunity
for everyone in the class to partici-
Last year's play was exceptionally
successful and members of the cen-
tral committee urge co-operation in
order to make the production of the
class of '36 equally outstanding.

Many H ouses
Give Rushing
Alphi Chi Omega
Dorothy Hood, '35, was in charge ofI
the rushing dinner given Wednesday

Gertrude Babcock, Constance Beery,
and Dorothy Smith of Detroit, and
Mrs. Thomas Adams and Mrs. Paul
Krause of Birmingham.
Kappa Alpha Theta
At the Kappa Alpha Theta house{
last night, a scheme of an Italian l
dinner was effectively carried out.
The centerpiece consisted of bologna,
squash, and red peppers; and vivid
red and white napkins were set
around in glasses.
Alpha Epsilon Phi
Among their series of rushing din-
ners, a "rah-rah" luncheon was given
Saturday noon by the Alpha, Epsilon
Phi sorority. The decorations were
burlesqued to carry out the movie-
goers idea of college. The walls were
bedecked with everything from riding
breeches to fancy pillows, while books,
of course, were conspicuously lacking.
Chi Omega
The decorations for the rushing
dinner given last night by Chi Omega
sorority were unusual and charming,
consisting of balloons and frogs.
Katherine Yaw was in charge of the
dinner, and several alumni were pres-
ent including Geraldine Lawson of
Royal Oak, Elsie Hagfrneyer of De-
troit, Mrs. Paul Leidy of Ann Arbor,

.His regular


instruction was limited to five years under
Leschetizky, which he began at the age of ten.
At one of his studio classes an elderly, bearded
gentleman' asked in amazement, "How can you
play all this so correctly?" The old gentleman
was Johannes Brahms, of whose works, by a
strange coincidence, Schnabel has since become
one of the greatest exponents. Recently he
crossed the ocean especially to participate in a
Brahms Festival conducted by Koussevitsky.
He is also called the greatest living interpreter
of Beethoven and draws capacity audiences at
his all-Beethoven programs.
In addition to distinction as a virtuoso he is a
teacher of first magnitude, and many of the
finest performers of the day owe their success
to his guidance and inspiration.

Exiles, men without a country -have the words "En voyage" written
in the passports issued to them. No wonder these men cherish a passionate
longing for their "beloved Mother Russia.'' Before the Russian Revolution
they served as officers in the cavalry of the Imperial army of the Czar.
In 1923 they were organized as a chorus by their dynamic young leader,
SERGE JAROFF. From that time on they have wandered throughout west-
ern Europe, England, and Australia, triumphing not by sword but by
song. In 1930, they made their first visit to America. They have mastered
every variety of choral singing. Everything about them is dramatic.
Although they sing in Russian - native folk-songs, as well as religious
and secular numbers - each song carries its well-detailCd English version.
Their singing is thrilling in its intensity and fire. Ralph Holmes, the
distinguished critic, has aptly said, "You will never blieve me nor anyone
else who tells you how wonderful the Don Cossacks ae, unless you happen
to hear them yourself; for no words and no enthu nn can do them
justice. Here is something superlative."

soprano of the Metropolitan Opera Associa-
tion, has won distinction as an opera and con-
cert star of first magnitude.
At the Staatsoper in Vienna she has thrilled
her hearers in many leading roles. At Covent
Gardens, London, she has been acclaimed season
after season. In Paris she was awarded the
rosette of the Legion of Honor af ter her thrill-
ing performances. Sweden awarded her the
Medal of Art, and the Ring of Honor was
bestowed upon her in Vienna.
In America great triumphs at the Metropoli-
tan and triumphant receptions in concerts
before audiences in the principal cities have
made her an equal favorite.
Poise, personality, and good looks supple-
ment her fine artistic gifts.
