Students To Design
Dance Decorations
Over 100 students have been se-

the decorations for the Architects'
Annual Dance to be held at Grangers,
May 10. The students selected are
from the classes of drawing, paint-
ing, sculpture, and architecture in the
College of Architecture.
This contest gives promise of great
originality and creative work among
the students, George Narovec, '35E,
chariman of publicity, said. The
decorations are to be a feature of the

Informal Tea Gown
Features Both Filmy
And Tailored Types
A combination of the flimsy and
the tailored may seem a bit strange,
but it is this effect that the designers
have achieved in the latest informal
tea gowns.
Gauzy, mysterious, flimsy mate-
rials are being used almost exclusive-
ly. Chiffons, nets, and laces are
combined with contrasting touches
of organdie and pique to continue
the contrast of the severe and the
Contrast With Collars
Black and navy blue are the most
popular colors, but are most out-
standing when combined with con-
trasting collars and cuffs. One gown
which has attracted much attention
is of black marquiset with pink quilt-
ed satin collars and cuffs. Another,
a navy blue chiffon gown, has a nar-
low, white organdie collar.
Shirring and tucking are an out-
standing feature of the best-selling
gowns. One black net dress is char-
acterized by shirring the full length
of the skirt and a completely shirred
cape.sTucks and smocking are be-.
ing used to soften the more harsh
lines of the tailored styles.
Shirt-Waist Top Goo
Variations of the shirt-waist top
are being used to a great extent, but
not in the usual "tomboy" fashion.
The collars are slightly larger and are
tucked or smocked in front and in
back. A powder blue chiffon dress
has been displayed which uses this
combination of the sport style and
the dainty.
The sleeves in the spring tea-gowns
are almost all of a type. The full,
flowing sleeve with a tight wristband
can be seen on almost any fashion
plate. The sleeves are varied some-
what by cording and novelty tucking,
but as a whole, they flow, and are
full length. Elbow length sleeves are
being shown, but whatever the length,
th9fy must be full.
Tunic Is Featured
The short tunic will continue to
play an important part in the styles,
but it will be a tailored tunic. A black
net gown which is popular has the
tunic style, but the tunic is open in
front and is cut on square lines. Pique
collars and cuffs add to the tailorei
style of the dress.
And, when speaking of the tea
gown, one must not forget to mention
the popular blouse back. This style
Pas been varied, too, with shirrs and
Fullness Emphasized
The most important thing, how-
ever, is that the dress must be full.
From top to bottom, in waist, sleeves
and skirt, the dress must hang limply
in order to be up with the latest mode.
Other tea gowns than flowing chif-
fons are being shown if you are quite
certain that you can't be yourself in
one of the gauzy creations. Starched
organdies are going to be worn. One
which is on display is made of a
bright plaid material, featuring the
enormous puffed sleeves and full

"A Midsummer Night's Dream,"'1
everybody agrees, was written for3
some nobleman's wedding. That is;
why there is so much music and
dancing, and why Shakespeare was
able to make such large use of the'
fairies. There is no doubt that the
play was performed with the utmost
splendour of which the Elizabethans
were capable. The last scene, espe-
cially, with the dance of the fairies,
through the dark house, was effec-
tive, and nowadays calls for resource-
fulness from a modern producer. The
play is epoch-making as it settled
once and for all what fairies were go-
ing to be in European literature. All
fairies in Western literature, since "A
Midsummer Night's Dream" became
known to Europe, owe something to
The play is a perfect example of
thakespeare's art of construction.1
You have numerous couples on num-
erous levels or "planes" in love with
one another. You have an absolute
mix-up of all this love making, but
you never have a confusion in the
spectator. Everything is kept clear
and brought to the expected conclu-
This may sound like the idolatry
of Shakespeare which is so much out
of fashion, but there really is no
other example in dramatic literature
in which so complicated a plot is
constructed with such a firm and
clear line.
Furthermore, it is the supreme ex-
ample in literature of the power of
evoking a landscape and the whole
spirit of the mood of Nature. The
Midsummer's Night is in all Euro-
pean countries, a famous night in
which girls meet their lovers and
there are all sorts of spells in the
air. Shakespeare has ciptured the
spirit of this wonderful time and
brought it onto the stage. The art
by which he has done this is as won-
cerful as his skill in construction. It
is all a matter of implication - di-
,ect description, there is none. His
3hief difficulty, of course, was to make
the fairies alive on the stage. Other
dramatists, when they bring such
supernatural creatures into the thea-
ter, keep them too far removed from
our lives for them to be effective.
Shakespeare, by a bold stroke, asso-
iated a queen of the fairies with
the thickest numb-skull and the
clumiest blunderer of all the humans,
and at once the fairies are real to us.
Further, of course, the fairies take
glds Class For
ta Speech Defects

an interest in human love affairs, and
both Oberon and Titania are very
human in their own love affairs. The
result is that with all this 'mixture
of interest, the play never drags for
a moment. The dramatic interest
is keen and intense from the first
word to the last.
Shakespeare, of course, carefully
calculated his values and we must not
forget that music, song, and dance
were aql essential part of the play
from the beginning.
Two European
Art Exibitions
In )etroit Now
Two free exhibitions now showing
in Detroit offer a rare opportunity
to view both the sculpture and the
original drawings of modern European
artists. An exhibition of "Contempo-
rary European Sculpture" opened this
week at the Society of Arts and Crafts,
and the Detroit Institute of Arts is
showing an exhibit of "Modern Ger-
man Sculpture Drawings."
Many critics believe that the mod-
ern age will be remembered longer
for its sculpture than for its painting.
At the Arts and Crafts the carved
figures of man and animals illus-
trate the modern trend toward strong,
clear cut, cubic shapes. Unlike the
Expressionists, modern sculptors pose
their models naturally. Their works
possess a peaceful, lyric quality. This
same feeling characterizes the simple,
bold drawings at the Institute.
Both exhibitions include the work
of such great sculptors as Gerhard
Marcks, Wilhelm Lehmbruck, Ernst
Barlach, Ewald Matare, George Kolbe,
Renee Sintenis, Ernesto Fiori and
Richard Scheibe. The Arts and Crafts,
47 Watson Street, is open daily from
10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Shakespearean Play Set Status
For Fairies In Our Literature


To flush red with embarrassment
every time one speaks - to fight a
battle in order to push out the simp-
lest words, and to be weak with ex-
haustion at the end of a speech - it
is no wonder that stuttering causes
its victims more agony, perhaps, than
any other defect. Yet most of us
glib talkers never realize what it
means to stutter.
A recent survey estimates that 52
per cent of college freshmen have
defective speech, blurred articula-
tion, rasping or strident voices, if not
actual stuttering. It is to help these
people, particularly the stutterers,
that Henry Moser, instructor in
speech, is conducting a corrective
class, and the departments of speech
and linguistics are doing laboratory
research into the causes of stuttering.
Stutter When Embarrassed
All of us stutter in embarrassing
situations, Mr. Moser says, and the
stutterer has a double handicap to
overcome. His defect has made him
so sensitive that embarrassment takes
away what little voice control he has
when he recites or gives a speech.
Before rythmical exercises can do any
good he must become accustomed to
talking publicly and lose all sensitive-
ness about his defect. It is this com-
plex built up from the attitude of
shame which has tortured the stutter-
er all his life that Mr. Moser finds
so hard to change.
Many feel their lack so keenly that
they will submit to C's and D's rather
than expose themselves by talking
to what they feel is the ridicule or
pity of the class.
Left-Handedness A Cause
Recent discoveries show that left-
handedness and stuttering not only
run together in families but that most
stutterers started life left-handed and
were made to use their right hands
in school. Several experiments in
the speech laboratory show that stut-
terers have a different correlation of
their hands than normal. If a right-
handed person writes simultaneously
upon a blackboard with both hands,
his right-hand figures will be legible,
his left-hand backwards and unread-
able. The stutterer almost always
shows tendencies instead to make the
left-hand pattern the legible one.
Graph Nerve Impulses
Another experiment explains the
theory. Electric graphs are made of
the nerve speaking impulses on each
side of the jaw. The stutterer has
two different nerve messages to obey
that fight for dominance. The result

battle, while a normal speaker has
a uniform nerve impulse, showing
that one side of his brain domin-
ates his speaking. When a left-
handed person has been made ambi-
dextrous, he incidentally develops
both sides equally, so there is no long-
er a smooth nerve path, and he often
becomes a stutterer.
Although almost all of Mr. Moser's
cases exhibit a history of left-handed
children being made right-handed,
there are other factors in speech de-
fects, such as impediments of the
speech organs, malnutrition, and ill-
ness when a child is learning to speak.
Stuttering has many baffling and
contradictory aspects that make every
case individual. Some talk perfectly
in conversation, but go to pieces on
the platform, while for others debat-
ing is simple, and talking impossible.
Mr. Moser tells the story that he once
walked into a room where one of his
cases was giving a speech in great
oratorical style, but that when the
boy recognized his surprised face, he
immediately began to stutter.

League Style Show
