Date Of Penny
Carnival Is Set
ForApril 20
Jane Arnold, Chairman
Of Carnival Nominates
All Committee Heads
The date for the Penny Carnival
has been definitely set for Saturday,
April 20, according to Jane Arnold,
'36, general chairman of the affair.
Dancing will be held from 8 p.m. to
midnight in Waterman Gymnasium
while the booths will be arranged in
Barbour Gymnasium.
Miss Arnold will be assisted by Mary
Patricia Potter, '37, chairman of en-
tertainment, Edith Frederick, '37,
chairman of decorations, Eileen Mc-
Manus, '36, and Josephine McLeai,
'36, co-chairman of publicity, Adele
Gardener, 137, chairman of finance,
Jean Gourlay, '37, chairman of
booths, and Kate Landrum, '37, chair-
man of the floor committee. Mem-
bers of the committees who will be
appointed by the chairman will be
announced later.
The profits from the Carnival,
which amounted to $180 last year, are
used to finance various W.A.A. proj-
ects. The board furnishes the orig-
inal equipment for the booths and
each house contributes at least $2
above its expenses.
Martha Cook dormitory, which had
charge of the coat room, received a
prize of a box of candy last year for
taking in the most money.
A cup is awarded to the house
whose booth in the estimationof the
judges is most original. The booths
deorated by Adelia Cheever in the
last two years portraying a scene
from "Alice in Wonderland" and a
German beer garden were appraised
the best.
The Dramatic group in Wyvern,
junior honorary society, will cooper-
ate with Miss Potter in planning the
entertainment. The chairman prom-
ises a different type of entertainment
from the melodrama, "Wild Nell, the
Pet of the Plains," which was pre-
sented last year.
The Sophomore Cabaret trio, con-
sisting of Dorothy Vale, '37, "Jeane
McLean, '37, and Rachel Lease, '37,
will accompany the orchestra with
popular numbers. This group has al-
so sung in Detroit and at the League.
The Carnival, which originated in
'28, was at first held Wednesday
nights, at which time. the finals of
the intramural basketball tourna-
ment were played off.
Dancing was held in Sarah Cas-
well Angell Hall, but was later trans-
ferred to Waterman Gymnasium,
which is less congested. Entertain-
ment was offered in between dances.

Student Group
Plan s Travel
Throuh East
Arrangements are being made for
an eight day trip to Washington, D.C.,
New York City, and Niagara Falls for
the foreign students during the spring
vacation. Mr. Fred Randall, of the
Alumni Travel Bureau, will conduct
the tourwin person. Mr. Randall is
working with Prof. J. Raleigh Nelson,
counsellor to foreign students, in lay-
ing plans for the trip.
Plans as formulated at present in-
clude athree-day visit in Washing-
ton, three days in New York City and
the last two days in Niagara Falls.
Traveling will be done by train, with
buses available for transportation to
various spots of interest. The students
will have accommodations in large
hotels in each city.
Sightseeing tours are to be conduct-
ed by experienced guides through the
Capitol Building, the Senate and Con-
gressional Chambers, to the Wash-
ington Monument, the Arlington Na-
1ional Cemetery. Each foreign student
will be given the opportunity of visit-
ing the embassy and legation of his
native country also while in Wash-
In New York, such places as the
Metropolitan Art Museum, Central
Park, Grant's Tomb, Columbia Uni-
versity, Fifth Avenue, and Wall Street
will be visited. Professor Nelson also
plans to have the students visit the
International House in New York
According to the arrangements
made, the students will first view the
Falls at night while artificially light-
ed. Besides these sightseeing tours,
the travelers will have an opportunity
of seeing other interesting featues
while on the train.
The entire trip, including all ex-
penses will be $55. Professor Nelson
speaks enthusiastically about the va-
cation trip as a number of foreign
students have been inquiring about it.
Prof. Ralph F. Sommer of the
School of Dentistry addressed the
Pontiac Dental Society in Pontiac
last night on Problems in Root Surg-
and Wilfred B. Shaw will be placed in
the exhibition beside the hobbies of
many students.
At 7:30 p.m. in the billiard room
on the second floor several matches in
pool, straight rail, and three rail bil-
liards will be played. Prof. H. C. Car-
ver of the mathematics department
will play several students in each of
these events.
Melvin Silverman, '36, and Richard
Stone, '38E, will play a ping-pong
match, which will begin at 8:30 p.m.
A special reduction in the price of
bowling will be made after the several
scheduled exhibitions have been
played. It was announced that the
price of bowling, which is usually 15
cents, will be cut to 10 cents.
The Tap Room will be open to all
visitors and special prices will be
available during the Open House.

A chance remark dropped in an
informal conversation by the late
James B. Angell, then President of
the University, gaves Charles A. Sink,
president of the School of Music, the
idea for his unusual hobby - the col-
lection of books for his "memory li-
President Angell told Mr. Sink that
he believed most people read books
inccrrectly -- that a man should read
as if the author were standing over
his shoulder talking to him personally.
This gave Mr. Sink the idea of asking
the many famous musicians with
whom he has become acquainted
through his position as head of the
Choral Union and May Festival con-
certs, to send him an autographed
book from their own personal library.
"I ask them to send me a book
which they themselves have read and
enjoyed," he said, "and thus I feel
when I read these books with their
personal inscriptions, as if these
friends are with me all the time,
though years may go by before I see
them again personally."
Has Large Collection
Mr. Sink now hasminhis collection
more than 200 books, representing
gifts from some of the most noted
opera stars, pianists, and conductors
of modern times. However, he has
not confined his library to musicians
alone, for in his political life as a
member both of the State Senate
and House of Representatives he has
met all the recent governors of Mich-
igan, and many prominent indus-
trial leaders, all of whom have con-
tributed to his collection.
"An interesting thing about my li-
brary," Mr. Sink said, "is that only
one book has been duplicated during
all the years in which I have been
collecting." This book, "Moursorg-
sky" by Oscar Von Rieseman, was
given, to him by Sergei Rachmanin-
off and Feodor Chaliapin.
Chalapin Sends Copy
Moussorgsky is one of Chaliapin's
favrite composers, and he has often
sung the title role in Moussorgsky's
opera "Boris Godunof," which will be
presented in one of this year's May
Festival concerts. The copy sent by
Chaliapin bears the inscription, "To
Mr. and Mrs. Charles Sink -min ap-
preciation of their wonderful work
for the musical life of America."
The most valued book of the col-
lection is one given several years ago
by Paderewski. Mr. Sink wrote to
Paderewski abroad asking him to send
an autographed , book, but received
no reply.
However, when he made his next
appearance in Ann Arbor, he went to
the Sink home for dinner after the
concert. When he arrived there, he
nonchalantly pulled out of his pocket
a small book, beautifully bound in
soft red leather with gold lettering,
which he then autographed and pre-
sented to Mrs. Sink.
This book, "London," by Walter
Besant, was one of a set of books in
a traveling library, printed in 1904
by the English millionaire, Lord
Northcliffe, and given to Paderewski.
After the original copies were made,
the plates were destroyed so that
they are now impossible to obtain.
On the inside cover it has Paderew-
ski's book mark - an original steel
engraving of his piano, with several
of his own compositions surrounding
Women Give Novels
The majority of women who have
contributed to the "memory library"
have given novels. Rosa Ponselle's
gift was "The Dark Dawn" by Mar-
tha Ostenso, and Nina Morgana gave
"Manon Lescaut" by Abbe Prevost.
Sinclair Lewis' "Ann Vickers" was
sent by Mary Garden, while Lucrezia
Bori gave Mr. Sink "Moon and Six-
pence" by W. Somerset Maugham.
A fitting quotation' from Milton,
"Such sweet compulsion doth in music
- --________

lie," is written by Geraldine Farrar
in a beautifully illustrated book on
the Russian ballet ,which was her
gift to the "memory library."!
