Fall Social Activities Resume
As Familiar Persons Are Seen

L With no fraternity or sororityI
dances on the calendar as yet, the
Union, and Chubbs were the two
most popular dance places Friday
night. Among the many new stu-
dents there were a few upperclass-
menfrom last year, and even several
alumnae noticed. Rushing season us-
- ually draws them back.
s In the dressing room, Jean Hat-
t field and Betty Gillard were wait-
Y ing patiently, and Charlotte Whit-
e man hurried by.
c John Goetz and Mrs. Goetz, for-
merly Virginia Chapman, stopped in.
At the Union, and Bill Onderonk,
f another alumnus 'danced by with
e his partner.
Only a few of the Detroit social
1lights were back for the fall season
o it seemed. Ann Timmons, who led
1 the J-Hop last year, was there, and
f Barbara Spaulding was chatting ani-
miatedly at a table between dances.
Bill McRoy, who led the Senior
Ball last year, also returned to his
former haunts. Others that were
' glimpsed during the evening were
Dorothy Utley, whose unusual gown
was designed along the new tailored
lines for evening, having a three-
piece suit effect with an ankle length
skirt. Jerry Walsh, Janice Rice and
Betty Anne Beebe were also there.
Architect Students
Invited To Smoker
A smoker for all students of, the
Architectural School will be held
Thursday evening, Oct. 11, at the
Union. The officers of the Architect-
ural Society for the coming year are:
Narovec, '35, vice-president; Richard
Robinson, '35, treasurer; Charles
Stocking, '36, secretary; and Margar-
et Culver, '35, curator. The Archi-
tectural Society is the organization
which sponsors the Architects Ball
every year.
William Buderus, '34, past president
of the Society, and one of two Michi-
gan men who has ever won the Ryer-
son Prize, is now studying in Europe.
Smuggling By Women
Said To Be Increasing
Smuggling by women is on the in-
crease says a French custom inspec-
tor, and they do it mostly for excite-
"Except for the professional smug-
gler," says the inspector, a veteran of
25 years in service, "men have abon-
doned the idea of defrauding the cus-
toms service. They have given it up as
a bad job not worth tackling.
"But not the women. Last year,
for instance, the number of would-be
feminine smugglers, trying to get
dutiable goods into France without
paying, showed a considerable in-
crease. They do it, not to save money,
but as an exciting sport.
"Usually their stories are utterly
fantastic and easily seen through by
a trained customs man.

Ruth Robinson was another prom-
inent senior of last year who turned
up to dance at the Union.
At the opening night of Chubbs,
a number of prominent women were
seen among the unusually large
crowd. Among them were Billie Grif-
fiths, Alison Tennent, Margaret Cow-
ie, Jane Servis, Kay Leopold, Virgin-
ia Spray, and Barbara Coventry. Ann
Edmunds appeared for a little while,
too. She is taking another bit of
post-graduate work in the water color
painting this year.

ual rounds from table to table, and

Two Carolyns from the same sor-

They were Carolyn Sherman, and

DramaticS tars Of
Former Years Play
On New York Stage
Two well-known campus stars of
former years, Mildred Todd and Stan
Handley, appeared this summer in a
New York production, called "New
Faces." The production was unique
in many ways and must have present-
ed a totally different kind of expe-
rience for both of them.
The play was produced by Charles
Dillingham, commonly called the
father of Broadway. The revue was
financed by all his famous old stars,
many of whom have gained promin-
ence in the movies and on the stage,
since the time when they worked
under him. Eddie Cantor, Mary Pick-
ford, Elsie Janis, and Al Jolson were
among the stars that he made fa-
All the talent that appeared in
this production was new: people who
hadn't appeared in any major part in
Broadway before. The show took the
form of a musical revue, and the skits
and music were well written by mem-
bers of the cast, which included about
twenty-five persons.
Miss Todd, and Handley appeared in
a number of clever singing and act-
ing skits. Both of them received
their preliminary training on campus,
taking the lead parts in many produc-
tions during their four years here.
"New Faces" opened in March and
ran into August, going on the road
after that time. It played two weeks
in Boston, and the same amount of
time in both Atlantic City, and Long
Island, and has just recently closed.
Although at the outset, the popu-
larity of so different a production,
with new talent and no stars, was
doubted, its success was so great, that
the same directors have started work
on a new show along the same line.

recital will be given toward the end
of November.
Dance Club will also present an ex-
hibition in January in the Lydia
Mendelssohn theater, according to
Julia Wilson, '36, chairman of the
club. The two programs put on by
this group last year succeeded in
arousing enthusiasm out here for this
type of dance.
Practice for these recitals shall
commence as soon as possible. Miss
Wilson urges everyone interested in
the modern dance to attend the
opening meeting of Dance Club which
is to be held at 10 a. m. Saturday in
Bar our Gymnasium.

tinue dance study are eligible for the

Meetings of the Play Production
group will be held at 4:15 p. m. Tues-
day and Thursday in Barbour Gym-
Contemporaneous expression is the
essential characteristic of the mod-
ern dance. That is, modern dancers
are striving to present the soul of
today. They have revolted against
ballet and romantic technique as well
as the technique employed by the
schools of Denishawn and Isadora.
Rather than emoting to music or
memorizing routines, they use total
body movement. Modern dancers
are working toward abstraction, to-
ward classicism, toward a conscious-
ness of America.
The six men and six women in
modern dance classes who show the
most promise in this art will be given
special work. This selection will make
it possible for these students to de-
velop exceptional proficiency.
Collin Wilsey, '35, creator of the
Fire Dance and several other num-
bers in last year's recitals, studied
the Bennington School of Dance,
Bennington, Vt., last summer. Miss

dance classes, also attended this

New Formal Coats
Feature Novel And
Elaborate Detail
Wednesday and Thursday nights
will be the first occasion many wom-
en students will have to deck out
in formal finery for the final sorority
rushing dinners. Lasting impressions
are made on rushers and rushees these
memorable nights and it is important
for both to guard carefully their se-
lection of apparel.
One of the most important items in
the evening wrap. Few women pos-
sess more than -one or two and be-
cause this year'snmodels are more
beautiful in design and material than
ever before it makes every student
envious to own every new one that
Long wraps, instep length or trail-
ing are being advised by Parisian de-
signers to a great extent. Schiapar-
elli evolved an instep-length coat of
crinkled velvet in a bright shade of
green with a graceful, stiffened cape
and an ascot scarf effect at the
throat. It is heavily lined and is an
excellent choice for a winter wrap.
Another stunning wrap created by
Vionnet especially for the full-skirted
picture frocks that are gaining popu-
larity this fall is of royal blue velvet
with sliding shoulders, a gracefully
crushed neckline and flowing sleeves.
It is a queenly coat especially fitted
for a tall, slender person.
Alix has a new idea for an evening
coat. It is of gold and black cire
satin worked up to resemble Cordovan
leather. The interest of design lies
in the immense bouffant sleeves. It
is floor length and has no collar of
any kind.
Shorter wraps are about knee length
this season. Gold lame was chosen
by Mainboucher for a coat that fits}
snugly at the waistline and flares to
the knee. The upstanding collar is
a suitable addition to the creation.
A furred wrap of particular interest
is one of Lucien Lelong's favorites.
It is of changeable green and brown
moire velvet trimmed with a mink
collar, huge sleeves of the fur, and
)anded entirelydown the front and
,round the bottom with mink. This
coat also is knee length.
Black velvet is always a favorite
material for formal coats, since it
can be worn over any gown. If it is
possible to have ermine trim, kolin-
sky, or white fox, so much the better.
Brazil nuts are being used as "but-
tons" on the latest sports suits being
