RepertoryPlayers Will Celebrate Their
11th Anniversary During The Summer

The Michigan Repertory Players
will celebrate their 11th:anniversary
with the opening of the Summer Ses-
dion this year.
The history of the Repertory Play-
ers has been both an exciting one
and one of increasing success. Origi-
nally the professional Ann Arbor
Dramatic Season appeared during
the summer school. Dean Edward
Kraus decided to present them in the
spring, and as a .substitute asked
Play Production to take over the
summer season. Play Production, un-
der the direction of Prof. Valentine
B. Windt, was eager for such an op-
portunity, and agreed to put on one
play, a week.
Wallace Assists
This was quite an undertaking for
the students and might have resulted
in failure but for the fortunate in-
terest of Chester Wallace of the
drama department of Carnegie Insti-
tute of Technology who came to their
aid that year.
The purpose of the Dramatic Sea-
son was to offer a group of interest-
ing plays for the entertainment of
the community and students, and as
instruction for those students who
are interested in the theatre.
Another important step was the'
decision of what to name the group.
It could not be called the University,
Players or the University Theatre
because of the existence of several'
prominent dramatic groups already
in the University. Among these were
the then active Mimes and the Com-
edy Club. The final title was help-
Simplicity Spells Style
For Summer Queens

Stevens, generally regarded as dean
of university theatres since:the death
of George Pierce Baker, joined the
group and was a member for several
seasons. Alexander Wyckoff, eminent
scene designer, and his wife, an auth-
ority on costuming, also became mem-
bers that year. Jean Mercier, direc-
tor of the opera house at Strausberg,
and Lennox Rooinson, .irector of
the Abbey Theatre, later became in-
terested and were here for one season
When Mr. Stevens found it impos-
sible to come, it was decided to ask
an actor from the Dramatic -Season
in the spring to stay over for the
Summer Session, to offer the' experi-
ence of the professional actor. Among
those who have stayed are:Frank
^ompton, Oswood. .Marshall, and,
Whitford Kane.
Alternate Two Plays
At the beginning of the fourth sea-
son they alternated two plays in or-
der to arouse interest and at the
same time to live up to the name of
Repertory Players. This season they
also presented musical productions.
During the last few years' there
have ;been sellouts fora all perfor-
mances because of the fine quality of
the. productions. : This summ ner the
group is planning more < excellent
programs for the benefit of the stu-
dents who want, o learn about the
theatre and for the community which
is becoming constantly more theatre-

Authorities Plan
Three Services
Speakers, Special Music
Form Part Of Program
Three campus vesper services will
be, conducted during the Summer
Session of the University this year,
Dr. Louis A. Hopkins, Director of the!
Summer Session announced.-
The services will be given under
the auspices of the Committee on
Religious Education, headed by Dr.
Edward Blakeman, Counselor in Re-
ligious Education. The first service
will be held Sunday, July 9, in the
Lecture Hall of the Rackham Build-
ing, and Dr. Hopkins will be the
principal speaker.
Prof. Bennett Weaver of the Eng-
lish department= will speak at' the
second service, which will be given
Sunday,- July 23 in the Rackham.
Lecture Hall. The final service will
be held. Aug. 13 in Hill Auditorium.
A special program of religious music
" will be presented. at that.time by
orchestra and chor al~ groups uLnder
the direction of Prof. David Mattern
of the School of Music.
Foreign Group Increases
Because of the* Institute of Latin
American Studies and the Phonetics
qversity this -summer HetaoinETAO
Institute, which will be held at the
University this summer, there will be
a great increase",in the number of
foreign students, Prof. Raleigh Nel-
son, director of the International
Center said,

Plenty of play clothes must be in-
cluded in the summer student's ward-
robe -if she is to be prepared for any
and all of the sports emergencies that
may arise during The course of the
season. Tennis, swimming, bike hikes
and dozens of picnics are a regular
feature of the extra-curicular activi-
ties duiring summer school.
Among the most adaptable outfits
are those smart three-piece play suits
that have detachable skirts when
more active sports come into the lime-
light. Bright cotton prints to be
worn on campus to classes may be
quickly stripped of their skirts to ap-
pear as smart play suits for a tennis
match. One very original model of
this sort is of white non-crushable
linen. The skirt has a navy and

white polka dot yolk with buttons of
the same material while the skirt has
a broad tie sash attached to its top.
The skirt zips on with a glistening
white zipper.
Other play clothes that will be in
much evidence again this summer are
the coulottes. They are especially
practical for bike trips and hikes
through the woods that surround Ann
Arbor. Bright prints on cotton, non-
crushable linen or any other of the
comfortably cool materials that are
easily washable form the perfect base
for a contrasting outfit with a light-
weight cotton sweater or blouse for
sports events.
And speaking of sweaters, cardi-
gans of sweatshirt material are one
of the most comfortable possessions

ful because its was impressive, Prof.,
Windt stated.
Six On Staff
Professor Windt, Mr. Wallace and,
four students comprised the entire
first staff. They handled properties,'
box-office, stage management, and
direction all alone. Consequently
they had to use a minimum of cos-
tumes and scenery and presented
many one act plays. Nevertheless the'
season was very successful.
Since that time the group has in-
creased the number of plays from
seven to nine a season, and now has
an experienced staff, including speci-
ally qualified graduate students.

Above all other thigs the acces-
sories that are seen most often on
the University campus during the
summer are of the simplest sort
Swimming and other active sports de-
mand simple hair-dos that may be
made sleek with brushing for evening
occasions. Coupled with this sim-
plicity comes a conspicous lack o
fussy accesories in the form of hats
and gloves. They are seldom seen in
Ann Arbor during the summer
Fish net turbans either of the tri-
angular or of the scarf-like variety
are adaptable for both on and off
campus wear. This same casual note
will be seen in shoes, mainly saddle,
shoes or brown and white golf shoes
minus the cleats. Mexican sandals
are wonderfully cool and comfort-
able after you have mastered the art
of keeping them on.

Social, Academic Activities
,s Will Center In Building;
n May 20 Is Dance Date
June 17, 1939 will mark the first
Y anniversary of the dedication of the
$2,000,000 Horace H. Rackham
e School of Graduate Studies. The
e building was erected for the purpose
of providing a social and academic
center of activity for graduate stu-
-dents similar to the facilities for
t undergraduate students on the cam-
Beautifully decorated and comfort-
ably furnished periodical, exhibition
and lecture rooms as well as lounges
are several of the factors which make
the building unique in its equipment.
Opportunities for social functions and
intellectual pursuits are amply pro-
vided within its walls.
Students of last year's Summer
Session were welcomed formally at
a faculty reception held July 1, 1938
in the building. Tournament bridge
with prizes, dancing, refreshments
and tours of the building were in-
cluded in the entertainment pro-
gram. The University departments
were represented in the various
rooms where students were invited
to converse with the department
heads and assistants.
The reception was followed by
social functions of a similar nature
for graduate students throughout the
year. Coffee hours were held by the
Graduate Council during the win-
ter. Weekly dances were held this
semester, and the Council's program
of social events will be climaxed with
a formal dance to be given May 20.
The Council arranging these events is
composed of students of every de-
partment elected by the members of
the graduate student body.
The presence of the Rackham
Building has developed a greater
sense of unity among the graduate
student body, and during the summer
it will be the center of graduate social
activity. The students will have ac-
cess to the terraces where teas and
coffee hours may be held. The re-
cently organized Graduate Record
Club will probably continue to pro-
vide musical entertainment through
the summer. Although the calendar
of events for the summer isnot yet
definite, it may include occasional
dances for the summer school stu-
Bathing Apparel
Hits High Point
In Fabrics, Colors
In preparing for summer, last
but certainly not of least impor-
tance, is the consderation of bath-
ing apparel. Fish net sandals to
match your turban look well beneath
a terry cloth cape with bright fishy
characters woven into it. Bathing
suits are more vivid than ever this
year and there seems to be a trend
back to skirts in the one-piece type
of suits. Two-piece suits are just as
popular as ever this year and the
Hawiian influence may be clearly,
seen in the nrinted nttn'm Knt +A
