Production, Music and the other arts."
The dances created by Miss Humph-
rey and Mr. Weidman have been
placed in the better theatre revues
with no compromise to their art. Form,
line, and rhythm are emphasized in
their dances, rather than narration of
steps.
These artists arranged the dance
numbers in the theatrical productions
"As Thousands Cheer," "School for
Husbands," and "Americana." Mr.
Weidman choreographed the play
within a play in Norman Bel Geddes
production of "Hamlet" and arranged
dances for Joe Cook in "Hold Your
Horses" and in "Flying Colors."
Miss Humphrey, in addition to hers
joint work with Mr. Weidman, ar-
ranged the dances for "Run Lil Chil-
lun" and the Spanish dancing in
"Revenge for Music."
Miss Humphrey and Mr. Weidman
performed last spring in the Dra-
matic Festival. They confined their
program to dances and appeared with-
out their ensemble which consists of
15 young men and women.
These artists gave a recital before
the Theatre Guild in New York. They
taught last summer at the Benning-
ton College where a six week's course
in modern dance was given by the:
leading artists in this field.
They are conducting classes in mod-
ern dance in New York. They de-
veloped their style following an ex-
tensive tour of the Orient with the
Denishawns.
Survey Shows Men
Students Are More
Nosy Than Women
POUGHKEEPSIE, N, Y. Jan. 25. -
(Special) - Men students ,are noisier
than women students, but they do
not let noise irritate them nearly so
much, according to Dr. Donald A.
Laird, director of the psychological
laboratory at Colgate University. Dr.
Laird announced here at Vassar Col-
lege the results of his survey of cam-
pus and dormitory noises.
The volume of noise in women's col-
leges is less than in men's colleges,
records on a measuring audiometer
showed. However in spite of the softer
volume, the higher pitched voices of
the women make the noise problem a
more acute one. The irritation of the
woman student at noise Dr. Laird at-
tributed to "the better discrimination
and use women make of their senses."
The survey also gave a comparison
of noises on campuses in the country
or small towns, and campuses- in the
city. The results revealed that a little
noise is far more noticeable in the
former college than more noise in the
latter. Mt. Holyoke and Vassar have
low noise levels of 1 decibels, and an
ordinary conversation of 35 decibels
is clearly heard above this level. In!
city colleges, on the other hand,
there is a constant noise level of 30,
to 50 decibels.

SNIX & NAX
.rmals, inanimate ones, can be
made to play a very important part
in the arrangement of a room and in
contributing a certain personal touch
to the whole. As guardians of the bed
t:lack scotties made up in wool to re-
:crible the originals are most appro-
priate. Ribbons of the correct shade
may be tied about their necks, in
accordance with the color scheme of
the room. They are often made to
nestle among a number of fancy pil-
lows artistically arranged at the head1
of the bed or else they may lie at
the foot.
Kittens in reclining positions, par-
ticularly white ones, look sweet and
appealing on a bed if the watchdog
motif is not desired. These, too, are
E'et off effectively if placed in a nest
of pillows or curled up just beneath
the bolster. Of course there are all
sorts of animals besides these which
may be made to produce the same ef-
feet. Some prefer teddy-bears of vari-
ous sizes, some giraffes, or even mon-
keys.
Luxurious Dolls Used
For the room which is essentially
old-fashioned in design dolls dressed
in luxuriant satin gowns add an air
of charm to the bed. They should be
piopped up by cushions artistically
arranged at their backs. The color
of the dress may blend into the bed
cp;ead or else be in attractive con-
trast to it. This sort of ornament suits
the bed with a canopy admirably, or
the four poster mahogany bed.
Now in regard to touches of orig-
inality for the dresser or bookcase,
little china dogs or kittens are pop-
ular. For instance, several dogs of the
same breed may be placed together
in a group at the top of a book-case.j
An attractive combination is provided
by obtaining animals which grade
down gradually in size - a reasonably
large one, one a bit smaller, and so
on. Some people devote the entirety of
a small book case to their chain dog
collections. In this case one shelf may
contain scotties, the next setters, and
the bottom one two groups of smaller
numbers on either side of the shelf.
China Dogs Popular
On the d(xesser 'a group of very
small dogs is the preferable arrange-
ment. If, however, the top is crowded
witn various toilet articles, it is better
to have just one medium sized dog
guarding it. A graceful hound, setter,
or scottie always looks well anywhere.
On the desk a severe looking watch
dog may be placed on guard. The
important thing to remember is to
place the animals where they will be
set off to the best advantage without
cluttering up the room or detracting
from some other more important ar-
ticles. Too many dogs could easily
ruin the desired effect or spoil the'
arrangement of the room. A very
iew may contribute much to its charm.

In Ann Arbor
Well Filled House Hears
Opera Star In Sixth Of
Choral Union Series
Mme. Lotte Lehmann, interna-
tionally famous soprano, made her,
debut in Ann Arbor last night before
a crowd of enthusiastic music lovers
in Hill Auditorium. Erno Balogh ac-
companied her songs at the piano.
In spite of the examination season,
Hill Auditorium was well filled. Her
program for the most part was highlyj
classical. The audience called Mme.
Lehmann back for six encores. The
encore receiving the greatest recep-
ion was the famous "Cradle Song"'
'y Brahms.
The well-known soprano also sang
as an encore, "Widmung" and "Unge-
deld" by Schumann. Other encores
were: "What Are You Doing" by
Schubert, "Der Schmied" by Brahms,
and "Vergebliches Standchen," also
by Brahms. Mme. Lehmann sang
two encores after each group of songs.
The famous opera star has concert-!
ized in nearly all the countries of the
world. She sings regularly in Vienna,
her home, Paris, Brussels, London,
Berlin, Salzburg, Munich, Montea
Carlo, and other European music
centers. This is her fifth season in
the United States, making her debut
in the 1930-31 season as a member of
the Chicago Opera Company. Swed-
en, Austria, and France have bestowed
honors upon her. She was the first
Austrian woman to sing after the
war in France, where she was awarded
the rosette of the Legion of Honor.
Mme. Lotte Lehmann opened her
program with "Suleika" by Mendel-
ssohn. She continued with "Die
Liebende Schreibt," "Venetianisches
Gondellied," and "Der Mond," all by
Mendelssohn.
After a short intermission the opera
star was heard in a group of four
songs. The first beirng "Over the
Steppe" and "Cradle Song" by Gret-
chaninoff. Then she sang "In the!
Silence of the Night" by Rachman-
inoff. She concluded this group of
songs with "My Native Land" by
Gretchaninoff.
Schumann was the composer of
her next group of five offerings. "Der
Nussbaum" was the first of these se-
lections. Following were "An den
Son*enschein" and "Ich Grolle
Nicht." "Auftrage" was the last num-1
ber in this group.j
These were followed in turn by
three renditions, which concluded the
concert. "Fa la Nina, Bambin' " by
Sadero, "Do Not Chide Me" by Balogh,
and "Joy" by Cadman completed the
ro n ram

Winter Wardrobes

This is the time of year which is
exceedingly trying for the feminine
contingent, what with the strain of
approaching exams as well as that
of trying to appear well dressed des-
pite zero weather and a slightly worn
winter wardrobe.
An excellent thought both for the
pre-exam spirits and the conserva-
tive pocketbook, is to "spring-up" the
winter wool, knit, or silk frock with
a "different" collar. And spring neck-
wear this year is decidedly new. It
comes in unusual materials and al-
most every conceivable style. There
is an attractive and washable linger-
ie silk collar, Peter Pan style with
crystal buttons. Then there is a
barred lawn material which is es-
pecially good to touch up the old
navy silk standby.
A surprising material is that two-
way-stretch organdie which gives a
pebbly impression and definitely "in
season" effect. The two-way-stretch
crepes and gorgettes have also been
seen. For the more frivolous, a ruf-
fled lace collar trimmed with tiny
pearl buttons is very satisfying. The
tailored epaulet waffle silk collar is
perfect for school year. Pique is
always popular as is the attractive
eyelit embroidered.collar. All of these
materials launder beautifully.
If one is entering the spirit of the
season, it should by all means by com-
pletely out. One of the most im-
portant, perhaps because the most
noticeable accessory in the wardrobe
is gloves. A lady will want gloves and
"the" kind. Again white is the an-
swer. White leather gloves will be
very smart with a tailored checked
suit coat and black wool skirt. White
pigskin is good. Dark suede gloves
with silk faille are shown. Chamois
gloves, not only complete almost any
sports outfit in a stunning manner,
but are also sufficiently warm and
serviceable.
