day at the Lydia Mendelssohn Thea-
teir, Robert Henderson, director, an-
nounced yesterday upon the complet
announcement of the selection of sev-
en plays.
"Laburnum Grove," the light Eng-
lish comedy by J. B. Priestly, author
of "The Good Companions," now
playing in New York. will be brought

ville Cooper, the British comedians

The closing play of the season will
be "Ode To Liberty" with Walter
Slezak, co-star of the current Broad-
way production. Written by the dis-
tinguished Sidney Howard, it satar-
izes Communism, feminine coquetry,
and problems in general. It romps
through the sophisticated world of
smart Paris and ends with a glowing
love story. It offers Mr. Slezak the
most appealing role of his whole
American career which has included
the continental success, "Meet My
Sister," in which he was also seen in
Ann Arbor last year, and "Music In
the Air" in which he was starred in
the original New York production.
Mr. Slezak will appear with Ilka
Chase, smart New York star who will
be remembered for her roles in
O'Neill's "Days Without End," "Small
Miracle" and with Tallulah Bankhead
in "Forsaking All Others." This sea-
son she has established herself as a
brilliant artist, in "Revenge With
Music" with Libby Holman.

Graduate Outing Club

With the coming of spring, the
Graduate Outing Club begins its ac-
tivities again, Miss Celia Knight,
Grad., secretary ,of the club an-
M aur ic e Whittinghill, Grad.,
planned a bird walk held yesterday.
This was the first bird hike of the
season. It is customary for them to go
early in the morning, but due to wea-
ther conditions, this practice will not
be taken up until later in the sea-
Last week the Outing Club went on I
a picnic. Due to weather conditions,
however, the group was not able to

In the comparatively few years that
foreign students have been enrolled
in the University, interest in their
native countries has increased tre-;
mendously. In the past few years
many of the foreign students have
been guest speakers at meetings of
various institutions and organiza-I
tions in and surrounding Ann Arbor.
Students Give Talks
Because of the demand of speak-l
ers acquainted with different foreign
countries, the foreign student office
has appointed groups of students to
cooperate with various organizations
desiring speakers on international+
subjects. One of the groups, consist-
ing of ten members, has been assigned
to give a series of weekly talks be-
fore the international relations class
at the Ann Arbor high school.
The subjects of the speakers in the
class, who represent ten different for-'
eign lands, consist of art, education,
politics, customs, history, geography,
interesting facts and prominent fig-
ures in the country. At times, under
the arrangements of Prof. J. Raleigh
Nelson, Counsellor to Foreign Stu-
dents. trips are planned to take the
foreign students to schools and towns
where the students do not frequently
come in contact with people from
other nations. Students in such
schools show a deep interest in see-+
ing the foreign students and hearing
the interesting facts they have to
tell of their cultures and customs.
A second group of the selected
speakers are giving a series of lec-
tures before the international rela-
tions class at Dearborn each week.
Aside from these groups, the offce has
also supplied an unusually large num-

ber of students to speak for clubs
and organizations such as Missionary
societies at the various churches, Ro-
tary Clubs, and Women's Clubs in
and around Ann Arbor.
In connection with these activties
in which the foreign students are
playing such an important part, the
office will send several speakers to
the State convention of the Y.W.C.A.
which will be held in Hillsdale the
latter part of April.
Military B a I.I
Tickets ToBe

Tickets for the Military Ball, an-
nual dance to be given by members of
the R.O.T.C. April 26 at the Union,

nounced yesterday. A limited num-

as half have been reserved for R.O.-
T.C. members.
Tickets will be priced at $3 and may

is DuLuyn, '35E, Donald Norton, '35,
Dan Cook, '35, Kenneth Mosier, '36E,
Charles Framburg, '36E, John Heles,
'36, Paul Phillips, '36, Jack Sinn, '37E,

ing a number of well-known bands

Barney Rapp, D'Orsay Brothers, and

The appearance of the dresser top
is of the utmost importance to the
general effect of the room; it is also
a reflection of the owner's own orig-
inal personality. The first thing to
be considered in regard to fixing up an
attractive looking dresser is, of course,
the scarf.
If the room be simple in design -
that is, if it is fitted out in neutral
shades-then a rich cream strip of
linen is appropriate. If, on the other
hand, the room be done in a particular
color scheme, the dresser scarf should
tone into the general effect. To go
with chintz drapes and bedspread a
scarf of the same material is smart.
Matched Nick Nacks
As to other articles on the dresser,
there should be a mirror, comb, brush,
and any other pieces that happen to
go with the individual set. Whether
these sets are silver or enamel should
determine the composition of the
other nicks and nacks that are placed
near them. Of these there should be
a little container for powder of, per-
haps, silver or glass, accompanied by
a holder for individual powder puffs
or cottons, always so convenient for
guest use. Cut glass perfume bottles
always look well and are nice to have
At the center of the dresser toward
the back a jewelry case may be placed,
contributing an attractive finishing
touch to the effect. This is a fem-
inine bit of vanity which has existed
since Cleopatra's day, and is being
shown at present in leather, silver
plate, sterling silver, and wood. Pew-
ter, for the present at least, is out.
Here, again, the case should be chosen
with regard to the other articles on
the dresser.
Jewel Box Attractive
These jewelry boxes come in all
sizes, beautifully designed in appear-
ance both inside and out. Many of
them are nicely fitted up with trays
and, compartments to accommodate
all kinds of jewelry. If they are to
stand on top of the dresser, it is also
advisable that they have locks.
Another touch of originality may
be provided by a group of little china
dogs, cats, or what not, artfully ar-
ranged to one side of the jewel case.
Faculty Women's Club
Drama Seti on To Meet

tion of the Faculty Women's Club will
