More Than 150 Myskens Explains

Students Attend
First 1937 Tea
Ruthvens Receive Again;
Mrs. Hazel Robertson
Presides At Table
About 150 students attended the
fourth in the series of Ruthven teas
and the first this year which was
hesld from 4 to 6 p.m. yesterday, ac-
cording to Betty Gatward, '38, who
is in charge.


President and Mrs. Ruthven re-
ceived the guests in the living room.'
Mrs. Ruthven was wearing a black
dress with a net top.
Mr's. Hazel Robertson, who pouredI
during the afternoon, had on a black
velvet dress with accents of white
lace. The other people who presided
at the tea table were Mrs. Clarence
S. Yoakum, Mrs. Granville Mitchell
and Margaret Guest, '37.
Among the guests that were seen
gathered around the tea table were
Bstty Shaffer, '39, Elizabeth Powers,
'38, and Maxine Blaess, '39. Marcia

and Calvin Stetson, '37. Other guests
present were Walker Graham, '37,
Bill Farnsworth, '39, Leland Shinar,

F raciona lpeech
Persons with so-called speech de-
fects really have fractional speech,
said Prof. John H. Muyskens, direct-
or of the laboratory of speech and
general linguistics, in a talk given
yesterday before the graduate stu-
dents' luncheon in the League.
These people have never de-
veloped speech fully, Professor Muy-
skens pointed out. The speaker also
stated that such fractional speech
may, in most cases, be traced directly
to physical causes, rather than to
mental ones as many people believe.
Dance At Union
Well Attended
The first Faculty-Alumni dance of
the new year was held from 9:30
p.m. to 12:30 a.m. yesterday in the
ballroom of the Union. The formal
dancewas exceptionally well attend-
ed, according to Mrs. L. C. Stuart.
On the terracs there were two
tables of bridge in progress during
the evening. Prof. and Mrs. Lewis
G am and Mr. and Mrs. Theophil
lingman were among those who
played cards.
Dance programs were handed out
at the door, and the dancing was to
the music of Bob Steinle and the
Union band.
Mrs. Avard Fairbanks chose grape-
colored velvet with crystal trim on
the shinned sleeves, and Mrs. Laur-
ence C. Stuart, chairman of the
committee in charge, wore aqua-
marine crepe with gold bead trim at
the waist and shoulders. Mrs. Don-
ald Knapp, who is visiting Ann Ar-
bor, attended the dance in an at-
tractive black lace, with a brilliant
clip at the neck as the only orna-

Miss Minchin's school is one of
England's most fashionable establish-
ments where children of the rich
learn their daily lessons in grammar
and politeness. And in all outward
respects, Miss Minchin appears the
model head mistress. It is not un-
til the crash in Sara Crew's fortunes'
turns her into a pauper and an or-
phan that the truly black depths of
that lady's nature will be revealed to
the audience of the Children's
Theatre tomorrow and Saturday.
It is pertain that spectators will be
:hocked and horrified at Miss Min-
chin's noticeable lack of the milk of
human kindness when she assigns
Sara to the drafty reaches of the
attic 'and the company of the rats
which, although friendly, afford not
altogether inspiring companionship.
Indian To Add Mystery
They will doubtless find Ram Dass,
Mr. Carrisford's servant, an intrigu-
ing personality shedding, by means
of his admirable turban and his for-
eign looking pantaloons, a distinctly
Indian atmosphere of mystery which
excites the imagination and the
blood pressure.
They will be permitted to revel in
the all embracing philanthropy of
Mr. Carrisford and to leave with the
satisfied feeling which comes when
the emotions have been given an air-

ing and then soothed into submission
by a happy ending.
Meanwhile, they will have been
transferred in spirit to middle-nine-
teenth century. England where lace
pantalettes flutter boldly from be-
neath hoop shirts and little boys and
girls are made to look and act like
miniature ladies and gentlemen.
Victorian Influence Felt
The staging is being carried out
in nineteenth century methods with
partly plastic and partly painted
scenery, rather stylized. Hence the
use of drops as well as wings is be-
ing applied to enlarge and decrease
the amount of space used for each
scene, but the book case in the third
scene is really painted as in the oil
painting supposedly hanging on the
wall. The decorative wallpaper
which is retained during the entire
play by the fore drop, is very much
in the nineteenth century spirit.
The property committee has suc-
ceeded in acquiring a monkey, from
the University Hospital experimental
laboratory, very much alive and full
of youthful spirits
