Bring on the cake and let the
candles be lit, Children's Theatre is
celebrating its third birthday this
month and embarking on its fourth'
season of popular plays.
With "Hans Brinker" well under
way and vague plans for "The Little
Princess" and "A Place to Play" tan-
talizing their brains, the directors
occasionally recall this same seasonI
three years ago when students of thel
Tappan Junior High School present- !
ed the first performance of Chil-
dren's Theatre, "Hansel and Gret -
el," directed by Mr. Kenneth Maran-
tette, and thus launched this little
ship of the drama.
Children As Audience
Notices received by parents that
year informed them that the League
was sponsoring a theatre designed
especially for the development of
children as an audience where they
could see plays suited to their under-
standing produced with the smooth-
ness and perfection of an adult proj-
It was organized by Ethel Mc-
Cormick, social director. of the
League, and Russell McCracken, then
assisting in dramatics, partly as a
means of adding to the undergrad-
uate fund and partly to satisfy the
need'for a children's theatre.
First Year Is Success
The first year 1933-34 was a suc-
cess and added to the fund by the
production of three plays "Hansel
and Gretel," (the only play with an
entire cast of children which the
theatre has sponsored), "Jack and
the Beanstalk" and 'The Pied Piper."
This encouraged the producers to
continue the project and present in
1934-35 "Cinderella," "The Emper-
or's New Clothes" and "The Adven-
tures of Tom Sawyer."
In the second year, the children
of the various schools aided in ad-


vertising the theatre by telling the
stories of the plays to their classes,
a plan which seemed to bring mu-
tual enjoyment. A drive by sorority
and fraternity houses was started
to send underprivileged children to at
least one performance of the theatre
and the response was good, the sum
collected being doubled , the second
year of the attempt and 315 children
being benefited by it.
Wi ndt Made Director
Last year Valentine B. Windt re-
placed Mr. McCracken as official
director and selected, with the aid of
a committee including teachers from
each school, "Aladdin and His Won-
derful Lamp," "Robinhood, or the
Queen's Page" and "Alice in Won-
derland" for production.
Outstanding features of these
plays have been the stage settings
and costumes which rival the stories
themselves in fantastic and imagin-
ative appeal. Oren Parker, graduate

WHEW. I'm glad those midse-
mesters are over - for the *time
being at any rate and now once
more we can get back into the
swing of things. All set for a big
- very big and gay Thanksgiving
week-end - there will be the Pan-
hell of course to say nothing of
the usual run of marvelous fra-
ternity and sorority parties. And
Panhell is going to be just grand,
I hear. Everybody is talking about
-Dutch uncles and everything!
NEW GOWNS are definitely in
order for this greatest of all occa-
sions - and if there is anything
has it. Now let me give you a
few handy hints and suggestions
-she has the most gorgeous tur-
quoise blue jewel-studded satin
gown in her window and with
stunning shoestring shoulder
straps. Really it will knock your
eyes out - and believe you me
there will be compliments galore
from the escort- the onegyou
picked out especially for Panhell!
Am I right? The modern trend,
too, is to go old fashioned, you
know. Look like your grand-
mother did when she was a girl!
And she really must have looked
lovely-your granddad certainly
must have thought so ! Elizabeth
Dillon is ready and waiting to
meet this desire too with the most
adorable sapphire blue taffeta
dress with a skirt of ruffles, ruff-
les and more ruffles. And by the
way - it's one of those lovely Jean
Carol dresses firom Hollywood too!
Doesn't it make your mouth water?
It should. But wait! To make
the old-fashioned costume com-
plete, she has lovely velvet fitted
wraps with leg o'mutton sleeves
- doesn't that sound too cute fob
words? We really must keep
"wrapped" up these cold days-
don't you think so? O-o-o-o!
hell and everything you'll want all
the necessary accessories to go
with that new formal- the head-
dress is very important and just
put yourself into the hands of
get something definitely new and
different - after all that's what
we want, isn't it? Well naturally!

J t~

And she has all the cutest things
- in bright colors - that you can
tuck behind a- curl and look just
adorable - and gay flowers either
for your hair or to add that cer-
tain touch to your formal. Then
of course there is the "blind-date"
evening cap that your correspon-
dent told you about last week -
Stunning, did you say? Nothing
And incidentally she also car-
ried the very latest line of hosiery
-both for evening and daytime
wear - the kind formerly carried
by the Rubley Shoppe in the Ar-
cade - remember? And they're
really quite the bargain!
* * *
JUST TtIE THING that you
need now is a compact. This
gadder-abouter has been looking
around- and knows! You see
the King's eyes and ears see and
hear all - yes, and you didn't
think I had noticed - now did
you? Well, don't let it worry you,
have the grandest assortment of
stunning compacts you ever saw.
Just the very newest thing, too!
Among them I noticed Yardley's
mirror compact and Lentheric's
new "stream-lined" number in
burnished silver and gold. Don't
miss these - they're knock-outs!
You'll also find grand represent-
atives from any of your other fa-
vorites - Coty, Dunhill, or Dor-
AFTER ALL dancing isn't the
only thing in Ann Arbor - there's
always PLENTY of walking to
do -plenty! Ann Arbor really
wouldn't be Ann Arbor if there
wasn't a lot of A. Your correspon-
dent has just the thing for you
too - the, new Tyrolean Gay Friar
walking shoes at VAN BOVEN'S.
They're low-heeled brown suede
with a decorative band of color
around the top -and fastened by
an attractive brassnbutton - You
have heard of all sorts of brass
buttons but never have they been
on shoes - well it just takes Van
Boven's to carry something very
new and different. Now you have
a grand excuse to be in utter com-
fort as you walk along the "diag-
onal" or down State. An innova-
tion in Ann Arbor!
