Plays, Dances,
Finals Conflict
As Year Ends
The problem of enumerating enter-
;ainment features that might take up
'.esure time for the next week, be-
tomes a bold-faced farce when one
emembers that Finals start Satur-
lay. With last-minute term papers
;o be beaten off and studying for
yxams to be done, any leisure time'
)n campus will be at a premium.
However, tomorrow is a holiday,
with no classes 'in session. Pauline
Lord in "The Late Christopher Bean"
opens Tuesday at the Lydia Men-
delssohn Theatre and will run
through the week.
At 4:15 p.m. Wednesday the women

Field. Mary Richardsofi, '40Ed, is
general chairman, and Betty French,

ence Corkum, '4lEd., are assisting
her on the committee.
Thursday's big event is the appear-
ance of the first Gargoyle (adv.)
under the new regime. Recent state-
ments issued by the staff classed it as
a "smelling" affair.
WWJ's swing bandf the Sophisto-
cats' will play a one-night stand at
the Armory Friday. The orchestra
recently played at the Whitmore
Lake dance hall, and has been con-
tracted to appear here by reason of
many requests, the group sponsoring
their appearance have said.
Finals begin Saturday.

his prize whistler, Elmo Tanner will
be playing at Westwood during the
Week, while Eastwood, on the other
side of Detroit, is offering Henry
Busse's music.

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is not thek
fifth in a series of articles on graduatel
work for women.
Requirements for spying as a pro-t
fession for women have been greatlyt
altered since the World War, accord-
ing to an article featured in the May
issue of "Harper's Bazaar."
Until 1914 the female spy was a
courtesan; today she must be a col-
lege graduate. An up-to-date secret
agent finds it necessary to have the
equivalent of a university degree in
mathematics, chemistry or both. Shef
and she must know the fundamental1
must have a knowledge of mechanics,
facts of photography. In addition tor
these ' accomplishments, the good
woman spy speaks English, DrenchT
and German, and she ought to know
low to read Spanish and Italian. Spy-
ing requires an excellent memoryl
(lecture notes are dangerous in thi$
profession), a decisive character and
an antipathy for alcoholic beverages.
Very rarely are spies wealthy. The
top salary for a very decent secret
agent in Europe today is around $3,-
500, plus, of course, money to grease
the palms of others who are not spies.
There are plenty of jobs for all ex-
perienced spys, because the business
has not been hit by the recession. In
fact, it is now booming. According to
"Harper's Bazaar," there are two rea-
sons for the present expansion in the
spy business.
The first cause is the two wars now
in progress, and the fact that Europe
as a whole is apparently preparing
to battle it out at any moment. The
second cause for a flourishing spy

Is HIonored At Tea
Miss Helen Arthur, executive di-
rector of the current Dramatic Sea-
son, was entertained at a tea held in
her Honor Friday at Helen fiewberry
residence. Dean Jeannette Perry was
Mis Arthur, talking to the group
informally, stated that she believed
that one should see a play more than
once to appreciate it, much as one
goes to hear good music played many
times. She discussed the influence
of the audience's respone upon the
actors, and expressed appreciation of
the response of Ann Arbor as a com-
munity to the Dramatic Season, de-
claring that the city is unusually
civic-minded in regard to the theatre.

CAPS 'N GOWNS, and those
almighty important squares of,

old 38's" we're going to lose, so
swing out down to CALKINS-
FLETCHER where we buy those
graduation gifts, those very super
gifts by which they'll remember
us! And when we saw these we
had the sudden inspiration-Why
can't everybody graduate every
year?. So we could all get in on
a share of these lovely make-up
kits. Kits of every style are the
very newest idea in "grad gifts"
and these are the newest in kits.
Beautiful leather cases, many of
them so stunning you'd want to
carry them as purses. Not only
are they complete in fittings of
make-up, creams, lotions, but all
of them the most popular =fine
brands. There's a pullman kit that
makes you want to hop a train
pronto; and for that major prob-
lem the boy friend, there's a very
super kit with shears, files and
all that the most "Esquire"ish
man could want.

shout with glee when you present
them with one of these washable
white bags from DfLLONS. Man-
ufactureres have something un-
usual this year made just for the
wise shophounds after new gad-
gets. It's a "mother-of-pearl" fin-
ish on these bags which gives a
lovely luminous glow and looks
as expensive as all get out. Give

a member of the old school of spying.
Although shewas a brilliant success
in the business during the World War,
furnishing Germany with i important
information concerning the French,
she was shot in Paris before the Ar-
mistice was signed.
The second famous secret agent is
Mme. Lydia Stahl, a Russian who
was also very successful in obtaining
information until heruarrest in 1933
by the French police. She was aided
in her activities by Mrs. Marjorie
Tilley Switz, an American from Vas-
sar College and East Orange, N.J.
Both of these women are college
graduates, and both meet the require-
ments for a modern secret agent.
