upon a pion as its own particular

to change the script so as to make

up an animal and poultry establish-
It all began when Betty Chaspman,
assistant chairman of the production,
was assigned the task of procuring
the pigeon, and upon failing to de-
velop the proper technique for catch-
ing a pigeon in a wastebasket, hired
a small boy named. Kenneth to
get one for her. But unfortun-
ately Kenneth broke his arm and
was not able to carry out the con-
tract. As a last resort Miss Chap-
man suggested that he might have a
brother who was an expert pigeon

hopeless tone that, "Naw, all I got's

Cercle Francais To
Give Play, Lecture
The French play, "Le Jeu de 1'-
Amour et du Hasard" by Marivaux,
will be produced by the Cercle Fran-
cais, April 30. The play is a master-
piece of eighteenth century comedy
and is considered one of Marivaux's
best plays, according to Prof. Rene
Talamon, in charge of the play.
The play is a light and clever com-
3dy and is typical of the theater of
that period, he said.
The fifth Cercle Francais lecture
will be given Wednesday, March 20,
.it 4:15 p.m. in Room 1Q3 Romance

Patterson of the French department
will speak on "Marc-Antoine de Saint-

Anyone who has heard the Univer-

Writing Was Limited
Mendelssohn was limited in writ-
ing for this play as there were to be
no solo voices on the stage. However,
what handicap that was, was over-
come with his overture, interludes
and finale.
He has developed in this opera,
themes characteristic of the individ-
uals in the cast, and which are heard
in the orchestra when the person
makes his entrance on the stage. The
dance of Puck, the themes of the
other cast members are found in the
A scherzo and a nocturne separate
three of the acts. The original play
was written to celebrate the wedding
of nobles and the famous "Wedding
March" forms the interlude between
the fourth and fifth acts.
Music Is Background
The music during the speaking
parts of the play will be for the most
part, incidental. Like the chorus,
the orchestra tends toward an effect,
a background rather than the state-
ment of any separate idea.
There are composer's tricks in this
music which guarantees to delight the
audience. For example, when Puck
squeezes the juice of a flower on the
eyes of each of the sleeping couples

Realizing the difficulty of combin-

voice, there will be no singing chorus
on the stage. Twelve voices selected
from the Women in Choral Union1

theater. The only solos will also be

Garden Club
Is Addressed
By Dean Dana
Dean Samuel T. Dana of the School
of Forestry and Conservation opened
a three-day session of the Ypsilanti
Garden Club Thursday night with a
talk on the "Origin of the Conserva-
tion Movement in Michigan."
"The Conservation movement in
Michigan in its present form," said
Dean Dana, "originated during the
first ten years of this century when
the first state forests were set aside
by' the Legislature."
He pointed out that since that time
the original 34,000 acres have grown
to nearly a million embracing state
forests, parks, and game refuges,
Prof. Shirley W. Allen of the School
of Forestry and Conservation will ad-
dress the group tonight oi forests and
the prevention of useless fires in
It is expected that groups of mem-
bers of the Ann Arbor Garden Club,
of the garden section of the Faculty
Women's Club, and of the garden di-
vision of the Women's Club of Ann
Arbor will be in attendance at the
session, sponsored by the Ypsilanti
Garden Club, which invites the public
to the lectures.

At last lamp designers have come
to the aid of students with myopia
(nearsightedness) and astigmatism.
You can now spend many long and
enjoyable hours studying for mid-se-
mesters and not be bothered with
blurry and aching eyes, if you invest
in one of the new reflector lights.
They stand about five feet high,
and cast the light directly upward,
so that they don't cast shadows on
your books, nor do they tire your eyes
with harsh, glaring light. The slim
bases are made of shining chromium
in a simple modernistic design, and
they taper outward at the top, throw-
ing light over the whole room.
Many Are Stocked
The only disadvantage to them is
that you can't have the alibi of
tired eyes as an excuse to stop study-
ing and relax every few minutes. The
architects and engineers have already
discovered them and as a result the
stores are having a rather difficult
time keeping them in 'stock.
If you're merely hunting for some-
thing decorative in the way of a lamp,
you'll have an easy time of finding
what you like this 'spring. Crystal and
chromium makes a nice combina-
tion when used on a pair of boudoir
lamps, and when the base to these
lamps is of onyx, that makes them
something extra-special. The shades
that come with this set harmonize
with the modernistic idea, and are
made very simply of white parch-
Crystal Lamps Seen
Crystal sticks are used effectively
alone on another pair of boudoir
lamps we saw on display in an Ann
Arbor shop. They are topped off with
some black and white shades.
Lamps are going sophisticated .on
us this spring. They don't give a great
deal of light, but if you merely want
a very frivolous and yet good-looking
lamp, they'll be the answer to your

Mosher Tea Dance
Held On Thursday
A tea dance was held at Mosher

rick's Day colors with green candles

prayer. They're rather squat, and have
shades which cover the entire
length of the base. One pair we liked
has a crystal base, and white parch-
ment shades with black bands.
Another innovation in spring styles
for lamps is the colonial thumb-print
lamp. It comes in milk china, and
the base looks just as if the potter
had taken the clay and stuck his
thumbs all over it.
The shades on the thumb-print
lamps are good-looking too. They're
made of white chintz with jaunty;
little red polka dots.

much of the British with a jacket
