year which took place last week. The Beatrice Borst.

The opening of Norman Rosten's
"This Proud Pilgrimage" drew one of
Ann Arbor's smartest opening night'
crowds to the Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatte last night.
Among those seen during intermis-
sion were Allen Schoenfield, William
Halstead of the speech department
and Prof. Hirsch Hootkins of the
French department.
Warmly, applauding the first act
was Prof. K. C. Rowe, under whom
Rosten is studying playwriting. Mrs.
Rowe was also in attendance, as was
James Doll, who is now with the Fed-
eral Theatre in Detroit after spend-
ing several years with Play Produc-
tion here.
Among the students seen at the
theatre were Al Evans, '39, Irving
Silverman, '38, and George S. Quick,
editor of Gargoyle. K. Conrad Aug-
ust, '39, of the Gargoyle staff, was
also there.
. After the final act, which ended
with the audience crying "author,"
Dr. Edward W. Blakema n,counsellorl
in religion, was among those hurry-
ing for their coats. Prof. Julio Del
Toro of the Spanish department was
seen leaving the League with Mrs.
Del Toro, while Frederick 0. Cran-
dall of the speech department was al-
so hurrying along, seemingly en-
thused over the performance in which
many of his students took part.
Evening Wraps
Find Originality
'AtLong Last'
The new evening wraps must be
taken by the collar - figuratively
speaking* of course - as this point
seems to be the center of attraction
in all the latest collections.
Novel touches have been added to
the prosaic black velvetand you will
find that the empire style predom-
inates with graceful full skirts, large
sleeves and fitted tops.
Every woman loves luxury in for-
mal clothes no matter how casual her
attire might be during the week.
The height of luxury was reached by
the tailored wrap of black velvet with
a voluminous waist length cape of
white imitation ermine.
A neat "Peter Pan" collar on a coat
which closes neatly down the front
wit'h large velvet covered buttons
would surely be a success. Tucking,
:stitching, quilting and shirring all
have been used in a variety of ways
on the new wraps. A full shirred
raglan sleeve gave one otherwise
rather ordinary wrap a new chic.
Evening capes are also coming into
their own with royal flowing lines.
In a local shop we saw such a cape
with the only sign of adornment being
a buckle at the neck in the shape
of a half moon. The buckle is of gold
marquisite and it glitters attractively,
catching every beam of light. A wrap
of royal blue in a truly royal style
reminiscent of Queen Elizabeth had
a large silver button of marquisite
closing the neck snugly.
