Back to the grind, Minnie cries, clutching her sparse forelock by one
claw, and taking up her typewriter in the other.
It always takes about a week for the old wheels to get under way
again, but the usual crop of committee meetings and
women's athletic endeavors seems to be taking its
r" .-usual toll.
Come the-end of the week, the first two rounds of

to be played off. Those throwing their little muscles,
into play for the event are Marion Weiss, Cecily

Children Theatre's "Ugly Duckling" comes off this week-end,barring
accidents and catastrophes. Hear tell that there is a swan whose wheels
fall off. Fee Menefee and Betty Spooner have been sewing like madwomen in
the inner recesses of the League all week.
Sub-Younger Set To Take Part .

The mysteries of the missing axe
and the missing yellow tights-"the
duck's britches" as one of the cast
put it-are only the beginning of
the entertainment behind the scenes
of the Children's Theatre produc-
tions. Sixty children ranging from
junior high school age down, light-
ing, sets, props and costumes add to
the staff's interests.
The "children are selected from
those who responded to a note on
the last program inviting them to
take part in "The Ugly Duckling" this
Friday and Saturday: very serious
about their .dramatic careers, having,
a lot of fun and being very helpfull
according to the oldsters who should
know. They have spent hours sew-
ing on hooks and eyes, putting feath-
ers on costumes and keeping the
I dressing rooms meticulously.
Costumes Display Detail
They respond carefully to direc-
tions, the three blind mice-5 to 7
years old-going into deep consulta-
tion to decide on how a live mouse
sounds when it squeals. They carry
tin cups and appear in long black
woolen Dr. Denton-like outfits with
green tails and wear dark glasses
over which they peer judiciously now
and then.
Costumes in general are symbolic
of the different animals depending
on the imagination of the children
in the audience for their effective-
ness. A trailing rope tail tied with
a bow for Mrs. Cow and huge ears
on the donkey suggest the charac-
ters without the use of masks. The
pig eating apples is an appealing fig-
ure in his beribboned straw hat, an
exaggerated red tie, shorts, spats and
striped socks.
Lights Are Important
Striking in contrast is the ballet
of the swans: 20 girls in sparkling
white ballet costumes dancing ap-

WVomen Urged To Obtain
Health Rechecks Early
There will be a meetii ng of the
central committee of Junior Girls'
Play at 4:30 p.m. today in the Under-
graduate office of the League, Kath-
erine Maclvor, '40, publicity chair-
man, announced yesterday. The
dance committee of JGP will meet in
the Undergraduate office of the
League at 4 p.m. today.
All junioP women parti('-ating in
JGP are requested to bvinig their
eligibility cards to the first meeting
of their committees.
A health recheck, available at the
Health Service at any time, must
also be obtained by all women ex-
pecting to take part in the produc-
tion or to work on a committee. The
slips must be signed by Pattie Hai-
slip, '40, assistant chairman. Junior
women are urged to take advantage
of this service immediately in order
to avoid the last minute rush.
Every student participating in
JGP is requested to pay one dollar,
which sum will be used to cover ex-
penses until the receipts from the
box office are available. The only
qualifications for membership on a
committee are the eligibility slip,
parently among trees. The effect is
obtained by use of trees painted in
perspective on a material similar to
cheesecloth which becomes transpar-
ent when lighted from behind. Col-
ored lights will lend changing hues
to the white of the dancers' dresses.
Odd bits of information that come
from a visit backstage concern the
snow storm produced by lighting ef-
fects-an advantage because it leaves
nothing to sweep up they say-grate-
fully; a cellophane feathered swan
drawn by six human ponies and
carrying six people and an egg con-
structed from a barrel out of which
the Ugly Duckling himself hatches.

Plans For Engineers' Ball
Dropped This Semester
Plans for the annual Engineers'
Ball, scheduled for Jan. 13, have been
dropped due to difficulty in obtaining
a suitable orchestra, Wesley Warren,
'3$E, president of the Engineering
Council, announced yesterday.
Rather than have an inferiorl
band, the committeedecided not to
hold the Engineers' Ball this semes-
ter, Warren said. There is a pos-
sibility that it will be held in the
spring in addition to the regular Slide
Rule dance, he added.

"Happy New Year" from 11:45 on,
and on, and on, and on. A disgust-
ed policeman and his bewildered
steed try to keep a Swiss yodler from
climbing up the horse's back-from
the back.
People split their throats blowing
horns, shouting, laughing and some
are crying (with joy, we think.).
Fighting toward uptown is a real
struggle. One respectable hotel
frowned in amazement as two happy
souls went round and round in its
swinging doors! More noise as a few
strong men, from some meandering
circus, turn over a taxi . . . a Happy
New Year to you, too!
Prof. Earl Moore
Addresses Meeting
Prof. Earl V. Moore of the School
of Music discussed carillons and bell
music at a meeting of the, Ann Ar-
bor Women's Club held Tuesday,
Jan. 3 in the League ballroom. Moore
gave the history and the technique
of making and playing carillons.
The theme of Professor Moore's
talk was the importance of bell music
in life, He believes that the beauty
of bell music lies in "bridging the
time between daylight and dark-
ness" rather than in formal bell con-
certs. The speaker said that the
bells in the Netherlands date back
to the 16th century and are associat-
ed with the town government rath-
er than with the church.
Professor Moore discussed the
beauty peculiar to bells as resulting
from thebcombination of overtones
in each bell. He stated that bells
cast in the late 15th century have re-
tained their beautiful tone.
Mrs. William C. Hoad, chairman
of the music appreciation divisior, in-
troduced the speaker.
