Prof. Reichart
Publishes New
German Work
Volume Compares Works
Of Gerhart Hauptmannt
With Shakespeare's
Lovers of the writings of Shake-
speare and Gerhart Hauptmann, Ger-
man playwright, may now compare
the two in a new volume, "Haupt..
mann and Shakespeare," written by
Prof. Walter A. Reichart of the Ger-
man department in collabeation with'
Dr. Felix Voigt, a German expert
on Hauptmann.1
The purpose of the publication,
which is one of a series sponsored by
the University of Breslau, is to trace
the influence of Shakespeare on the
writings of Hauptmann.
Both Dr. Voigt and Professor
Reichart, who took a leave of ab-
sence a year ago to assist in making
the study, were intimately acquaint-
ed with Hauptmann and had access
to his archives and also to a great
deal of unpublished material which
is discussed in "Haujptmann and
They also had Hauptmann's per-
mission to reprint his essay on "Ham-
let" which has heretofore not been
readily available. This essay points
out many problems and fallacious

(This is the second of two articles on
the function and activities of the Hilel
Foundation on this campus.)
The Hillel Foundation rEpresents,
according to Dr. Rabinowitz, one orl
its directors, a "Jewish microcosm.
corresponding to the macrocosm of
Jewish life outside the University."
In addition to maintaining facili-
ties for cultural and religous activi-
ties, the Foundation sponsors its own
dramatic, journalistic, forensic and
social organizations.
The Hillel Players, the Founda-
tion's dramatic group, give a one
act play every month at the Foun-
dation, the most recent of which was
produced Oct. 16. The Players' three-
act production is presented each
spring at the Lydia Mendelssohn the-
Hillel's Social Welfare Committee
visits all Jewish students confined to
the hospital and engages in other
philanthropic activities. It cooper-
ates with Jewish students at smaller
colleges in this vicinity, often includ-
ing them in its social activites.
The Hillel News, the Foundation's
journalistic organ, is published
monthly. It contains news of in-
terest to Jewish students on campus.
The Foundation also engages in
forensic activities. Its recent debat-I

ing teams have been very successful
against other Hillel groups.
As one of the member groups of the
Student Religious Association, Hillel
participates in campus inter-faith ac-
tivities, including exchange dinners
with various other member groups.
Sunday the foreign students of the
University will be the guests of honor
at the Foundation.
Hillel also operates a Student Loan
Fund. Any member of the Founda-
tion is eligible to borrow. Twenty-
five cents out of each one dollar
membership fee is deposited in this
fund, which is also enlarged by pri-
vate contributions. Each spring too,
Hillel aids both the Joint Distribu-
tion Committee and the United Pal-
estine Appeals, with their drives for
campus contributions.
The Foundation offers Jewish stu-
dents an opportunity to enter intra-
mural athletics. Each year a large
group enrolls in these activities by
way of Hillel.
Hillel amply cares for the religious
needs of members. It holds services
at the Foundation beginning at 8 p.m.
every Friday, as well as on every im-
portant Jewish holiday. During the
'Passover holidays it serves ispecial

meals at the Foundation. Many reli-
gious books are contained in its li-
The Foundation is about to embark
on a program of vocational guidance.
This program will be integrated with
that ofthe University, and is expect-
ed to prove useful to many students.
Last, but far from least in interest
and importance, are the many social
functions held by Hillel. A social,
sponsored by a fraternity, sorority,
faculty member, or townsperson, fol-
lows each Friday evening service. A
tea dance is held at the Foundation
every Thursday afternoon. Picnics
and sleigh rides are among its activi-
ties. At least two big dances a year
are given outside the Foundation

fussy ...



I am one of those fellows that likes

the little

things to be right. Take for instance my laundry. There's nothing I get a big-
ger kick out of than putting on a freshly laundered shirt. I happen to be one of

those fellows that appreciates a perfectly laundered collar, and I

know it's

going to be that way if it comes from thelaundry The Laundry picksmy soiled
clothes up and delivers them. That saves me the trouble of taking my laundry
to the post office and saves mother trouble too. That's another thing I enjoy.
Well, perhaps I am fussy but I like my clothes laundered the LAUNDRY way.
