"Emil und die Detektive," the pre-
Hitler film with German dialogue and
English subtitles to be shown today1
and tomorrow at the Lydia 'Meridel-
ssohn Theatre, is a "faithful repro-
duction of the delightful book about
children that has been enthusias-,
tically received by students of Ger-
man here and in other colleges for
two years," Prof. Henry W. Notd-
meyer, chairman of the German de-
partment, said yesterday.
The movie, which will be shown at
8:15 p.m. today and tomorrow by the
Art Cinema League, "like the book
demonstrates the penetrating under-
standing of child psychology of the
author, Erich Kaestner," Professor
Paris has replaced Berlin as the
central city in a French text that is
now being used; but London "could:
just as well be substituted," Profes-
sor Nordmeyer said , "without losing
the basis of common humanity the
"Kaestner, the author, got his start
in German letters in 1928 with lyric
poetry of a nonchalant devil-may-
care style, but since 1932 he has con-
centrated in writing stories about
children of high school age. Two
other books are now being used as
texts in this country."
"Kaestner's understanding of chil-
dre," Professor Nordmeyer said,
'gives his work a universal appeal
which over-balances some slight
looseness in construction that will
affect only critical adults."

IBetsy Barbour Buds admitted yes-
terday that they had been the vic-
tims of a practical joker.1
It all had its beginning at 10 p.m.
Wednesday when Mrs. Foy, the night
chaperon, received a telephone call.
An unknown voice sinisterly pro-
nounced the words of doom: the
water was to be shut off from 11 p.m.
until 8 a.m. the next day. That in- I
nocent lady immediately spread the
alarm. Then the action began. From
floor to floor traveled the news. Hys-
terical damsels screamed. Bath tow-
els, wash cloths, soap and tooth-
brushes were brandished as the fair
ladies forgot their sophistication in
one mad dash fo'r the lavatory.
Indignant voices shouted: "First'
come first served," as the dismayed
girls lined up three-deep before the
washbowls. Bathtubs were filled to'
overflowing to provide water for
those unfortunate ones with eight
o'clocks the next morning. Excite-
ment and terror prevailed.
Downstairs the frenzied chaperon
was pouncing upon every available
girl to help collect water for the use
of the cook the following morning.
Every empty pot, pan and kettle was
filled to the brim. Only at 11 p.m.
did the noise subside, as the girls
11windled back to their rooms.
The next morning grim faces ap-
peared at the breakfast table. The
truth was out. The water had not
been turned off at all. Some very
clever person had concocted the joke
to play on the unsuspecting females
of that doomed dormitory. Hands
that had known the toil of filling pots
