A Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Picture, star-
ring Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson
Eddy, featuring Frank Morgan, Elsa
Lancaster, and Douglas Dumbrille.
Taken from Victor Herbert's orig-
inal operetta, "Naughty Marietta" has
been made into a charming, thrilling
picture which is approximately a first
cousin to "One Night Of Love." It
nevertheless has much Herbert in it,
and for that and many, other reasons
offers unusual, tuneful, delightful en-
Jeanette MacDonald is at her best
as Marietta, the beautiful wealthy,

spirited and popular princess whose
elder brother attempts to marry her
to Don Carlos, an anaemic Spanish
duke with a great deal of political
power. In order to escape such an
plight, she disguises herself, assumes
her maid's name, sails for America
with a boatload of women being sent
over to become wives of the colonists,
and after having been rescued from a
band of pirates, falls in love With the
captain of the rescue troupe. With
Don Carlos pursuing her and a score
of colonists wanting to marry her,
she attempts to become a member of
a puppet troupe, but she is apprehend-
ed as the princess and meets with all
sorts of exciting and amusing diffi-
"Naughty Marietta" has most of the
attributes of an excellent musical pic-
kure, having been moulded into a
beautifully climactic sequence and
possessing the lightness necessary to
execute such a romantic theme. Nel-
son Eddy, whose appearance in pic-
tures is fresh, is destined, by way of
his masculine charm and superb voice,
to become an important leading man
in such productions as this.
Frank Morgan and Elsa Lancaster
aie teamed together with most satis-
fying results, and although their stuff
is straight Morgan and straight Lan-
caster, it is sure fire.
There is no reason why you should
not see "Naughty Marietta." In fact,
you will miss one of the best pictures
of the year if you don't. And there
is an exceptional "Silly Symphony"

of the catastrophe trickled through to the outside wor id.

Fat Rolls Off For University
Scientists In New Experiment

Those endowed with more than the
fashionable amount of weight may be
aided in its reduction by a new technic
perfected by Dr. L. H. Newburgh of
the University Hospital Nutrition De-
partment. The weight of the observed
subject may be predicted months in
advance within an accuracy of 1 per
The principle of Dr. Newburgh's
method is not a new one. It has been
known that the body gives off heat
through the lungs, but the actual
measurement of that heat emitted by
an active man has been reserved for
Dr. Newburgh. By means of a compli-
cated and novel apparatus it has been
made possible to record the amount of
oxygen burned and the carbon dioxide
given off by the body. This captured
gas is used as an index of the energy
used in active life and serves as an
exact basis for an accurate diet, which,
when administered, permits the reg-
ulation of body weight.
In order to conduct his experiments,
Dr. Newburgh has had constructed
inside the laboratory adjoining his
office, a metal-walled, air-tight cham-
ber about the size of an automobile
truck actually a room within a room.
Both ceiling and walls of the struc-
ture may be lifted from the floor en

masse by means of weights and pul-
The patient to be observed is con-
ditioned for 72 hours and weighed
to the fraction of a gram. The "cell"
is hoisted from the floor, the subject
steps underneath and after the lower-
ing of the chamber, he begins his con-
finement which will last 36 hours.
During his stay he leads a fairly
normal life, studying at the desk
which is placed at one corner, eating
at specified intervals of carefully
weighed food from the installed elec-
tric refrigerator, and sleeping on the
cot which lies along another wall. A
small brown-curtained window per-
mits an observer, usually Dr. New-
burgh, to note the patient's behavior.
Fresh air is pumped into the "tin
box" as it is affectionately called by
the staff, and as it is exhaled, it is
drawn off into two chromium-plated
cylinders. This trapped gas is the
actual specimen which results from
the subject's respiratory efforts. It is
analyzed carefully and its components
recorded in terms of calories. The
result of this analysis represents the
energy produced by the individual.
Dr. Newburgh's assistants have been
"energy analyzed" and his technic
has attracted many patients. The
most amazing of the doctor's accomp-

lishments is the case of a man who
weighed 526 pounds, the heaviest to be
examined scientifically. He had been
told by doctors that he was "born
that way," and that he would have
to remain an invalid because of his
tremendous size. At the Hospital the
man's energy specimens were taken
and analyzed, and the appropriate
diet was given him. After a year's
treatment he lost 287 pounds and at
the end of the second year he was
normal at 193 pounds. He was dis-
missed and returned 11 months later
without having gained weight.
Eastern Art Expert
Speaks Here Friday
Dr. L. A. Mayer, professor of near
eastern art and archaeology at the
Hebrew University, Jerusalem, and

trated lecture on Saracenic heraldry

Memorial Hall. .
Dr. Mayer is the author of the book
"Saracenic Heraldry" and his lecture

coats-of-arms in Syria, Palestine and
Egypt which, during the Middle Ages,

Forsythe Sees
Possibility Of
Epidemic Here
Health Service Director
Points To Outbreak Of
Cases Of Measles
Possibility of an epidemic of measles+
was seen yesterday by Dr. Warren E.
Forsythe, director of the Health Sei-v-
ice, in the four cases that have ccme
to his attention since Spring Vacation.
"This is the first indication we have
had," he said, "that the campus may
experience part of the epidemic gen-
eral throughout the state. Since in-
cubation is from one to two weeks
after the exposure, further outbreaks
may well be expected."
He described the symptoms of the
disease, saying that it started with a
cold, eye discharge, ,sore throat and
cough, followed shortly by the out-
break of the rash. Dr. Forsythe said
the disease is most contagious during
the early stages before the rash is
noticed, and this, together with a long
incubation period, makes the problem
of control very difficult.
"Anyone with a cold, or showing any
of the symptoms of the disease, should
report to the Health Service to make
sure of the nature of the disturb-
ance," he said. "If precautions are
taken to avoid exposure, and all symp-
toms are reported promptly, there
should not be any serious outbreak."
Graduate Student
To Head Red Cross
Mrs. Charles Noble has been se-
lected executive secretary of the Na-
tional Red Cross unit of Washtenaw
county to succeed Mrs. Nellie Ball,
retired. Mrs. Ball has left to take
up state welfare work in New Mexico.

uate student studying for a master's
degree in the University sociology de-
partment. She is a graduate of Smith
Concerning her new work, Mrs.
Noble believes that Red Cross work is
important as well as interesting. "The
work is varied but the most inpor-
tant function of the agency is to pro-
vide home service for the veterans of
all wars," she said.
Of the future plans of the society
Mrs. Noble stressed the development
of the Junior Red Cross in the schools

ments and occupational information,
was awarded a third prize for her
work from an altitude of 1500 feet.
David Eugene Richardson, man-
ager of the airport, was slightly

someone in the crowd pulled the rip-
cord of his regular parachute.
