Berigan's band, which will play

25 years old.

Views on issues ranging from the conduct of the present European
conflict to the design of Schiapparelli were discussed yesterday when
Mile. Eve Curie was interviewed in her room in Martha Cook dormitory
by Anne Vicary, women's editor of The Daily.
This Is Not War rBut Economic
Preliminaries,' Say Eve Curie
Famed Author Terms Theory Of United Attack
Upon Russia 'An Arm-Chair Observation'

"This is not war, merely the eco-
nomic preliminaries," Eve Curie de-
clared in an interview late yesterday.
"The French people know what it is
to fight, and the comparative' quiet
which Americans like to think of as
presaging a new type of conflict-a
bloodless, economic struggle-finds
France less optimistic."
Of the recently advanced theory
that present Allied-German hostilities
will resolve into' a united attack on
Russia, Miss Curie has only the com-
ment, "I have heard this advanced
as a possibility only in America. To
me it seems the result of arm-chair
observation. To Americans the war
may not seem to be going fast enough.
For ourselves, we will try to give you
a happy ending."
Little Military Aid
French action regarding Finland
holds closely to the lettfi of the treaty
with Turkey, Miss Curie affirmed.
Supplies of ammunition and provi-
sions are being transported to Finnish
territory, but direct military aid will
be offered only by the remnants of
the Polish army wh'ich is quartered
in French territory, she said. Though
the ranks of the Polish army are
noticeably swelled by French volun-
teers, Miss Curie admitted, there is no
open enlistment such as that carried
on in Great Britain.
The substitution of women for men
in industry has proceeded gradually
and painlessly in France, and has been
on a strictly voluntary basis, she
maintained. Women have 'taken over
for husbands or sons in businesses, in
Petitioning For League
Committees Begins Now
For the first time, Judiciary Coun-
cil of the League will hold formal pe-
titioning for membership on .League
committees during the first three
weeks of the second semester.
Petition blanks are available in
the Undergraduate Office of the
League, and all women who wish to
work on any committee must peti-
tion, Betty Slee, '40, chairman of
Judiciary Council, announced yester-
Included on the list of committees
are theatre-arts, publicity, social,

industry, and on the ,arm, but there
has been no female recruiting of a
military sort, she insisted.
Parisians Returning To City
Evacuation has not been carried
on in France as widely as in Britain,
Miss Curie said, but Paris and several
Eastern cities have felt the results of
planned desertion for purposes of
safety and military necessity. Claim-
ing that the expected bombing of
Paris has not yet occurred, she pointed
out that bored Parisians have been
gradually 'returning to that city.
As one of the best dressed women
in the world, and a protege of Schia-
parelli, Miss Curie declared that
clothes have become a bit more con-
servative, but still far from gloomy.
Says she, "We've dispensed with the
"noisy" things which catch your eye
in Vogue, but wide variety is still
Sunday Supper
Series To Start
League Group, Congress
Plan Affair ThisWeek
First in a series of Sunday Night
Suppers, sponsored by the League
Social Committee and Congress, will
take place at 5:30 p.m. Sunday at the
Originating three years ago in re-
sponse to student requests for a means
of enlarging their social contacts, the
Sunday Night Suppers have success-
fully fulfilled this function because
they offer a variety of inexpensive en-
tertainment, Alvira Sata, '42, chair-
man of the Supper Committee, stated.
The group will gather in the ball-
room where mixers will acquaint the
students with each other. Then each
will buy his supper in the Grill Room
and the group will gather in the Rus-
sian Tea Room to eat.
After supper, a treasure hunt will
be the featured entertainment, with
checkers, pingpong, cards, and swing
records played in the ballroom also
on the program. The entire second
floor of the League will be at the dis-
posal of the guests.
There is no charge for the evening
but each student is responsible for
buying his own supper.
All women interested in playing
club basketball who are not 4l-
ready on teams may join a team
by leaving their names at Bar-
bour Gymnasium or by calling
Mary Culbertson at 2-3225 today
or tomorrow. The tournament
will begin Tuesday, and captains
will be notified before that time.

Breaking away from tradition, the
Children's Theatre will present a
dance pantomime, "Cinderella," and
puppet show, "Sleeping Beauty," at
3:45 p.m. today at the Lydia Men-
delssohn Theatre.
Instead of the usual fairy tale or1
original play acted by a cast com-
posed of Ann Arbor school children
with some Ur'iversity students in
leading adult roles, a large dance
group combining practically all of
the dance groups on campus will hold
sway this afternoon.
Directed by Ruth Bloomer, of the
Physical Education Department, the
dance group will present almost every
form of the dance. Folk, tap, ballet,
modern, social and interpretive danc-
ing will all be featured as well as
ornbein plays Prince
Jeanne Burt, '40Ed., plays the lead-
ing role of Cinderella. Miss Burt
has danced in the ballet group of the
Chauttaqua Opera Company for the
past few summers and is at present
the director of the ballet group here.
Joseph Borbein plays the part of
the Prince. Gornbein studied danc-
ing in Detroit and took the Christmas
dancing course offered by the Hum-
phrey-Weidman studio in New York
this year.
The two cruel sisters will be danced
by Bernice Wolfson, '40, and Char-
lotte Kinney, '41E, and Sara Graf,
Grad, will take the part of the mother.

the part of the Court Jester, Kather-
ine Sprick, '41, is the Fairy Godmoth-

the dream scene.
The parts of the folk'dancers and
the horses will be taken by Juniors
majoring in the Physical Education
Department. Seven Ann Arbor chil-
dren ranging in age from four to
eight, who take part in the produc-
tion, are members of a class taught
by these juniors as part of their train-
Lock Directs Orchestra
Men taking part in the production
are either members of the University
Dance Club, or of the Play Production'
Dance Group.
A five piece orchestra directed by
Stanley Lock, '42, will accompany the
dance pantomime. The orchestra is
composed of Mary Louise Knapp,
'43SM, Margery Mellott, '43sM, Caro-
lyn Fries, '43SM, Goldie Mack, '43SM,
and Lock. Miller did the orchestra-
tions for the performance.
Hans Christian Anderson's well
known tale, "Sleeping Beauty" will
be presented in the form of a marion-
ette show. The puppets for this show
were all made by David Gibson, '41,
who wrote and arranged the script in
collaboration with Richard McKelvey,
director of the Children's Theatre.
Speaking the parts of the marion-
ettes will be John Hathaway as the

Tryouts for all junior women inter-
ested were held at the beginning of
the week, and Richard McKelvey,
director, assisted by members of the
central committee, chose some of the
number to tryout again for the pro-
duction. Selection of the women who
will have roles will be made by Mc-
Kelvey today.
All women may participate in chor-
us numbers and dance numbers, whe-
ther or not they are chosen for lead-

"Pumpkins simply do not grow in
Ann Arbor at this time of year" is the 3
conclusion reached by the property
committee for the dance pantomime,
"Cinderella," which will be given y
Children's Theatre at 3:45 p.m. to-
day and at 1:30 p.m. tomorrow at theJ
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.a
After having scoured the city andI
cleaned up the basement of the dime
store in search of the article in ques-
tion, the committee feels they are
basing this conclusion on near-sci-
entific research.
But pumpkins were not the only
problems presented in the production
of scenery, costumes and properties
for the pantomime. Rat traps of an
extraordinary size which would hold
eight Ann Arbor children as mice are
one of the major features of the pro-,
perties. Elaine Fisher, '42, is proper-
ties chairman.
Then there is Cinderella's coach;
which in its final form of a huge
pumpkin on wheels has been termed

garet Wiseman, '42, scenery chair-
man ,in honor of Robert Corrigan.
Grad., designer of the stage sets.
Three sets will be used in the pro-
duction. The outdoor set features
houses which look like they are made
of material-plaid, striped, and dot-
ted. A kitchen scene and a ballroom
scene in which there are pink pillars
made of marquisette drapery com-
plete the settings.
"The effect is more or less impres-
sionistic with a striving for an im-
aginative, fairy tale atmosphere," Miss
Wiseman said.
Wool Is Spring Favorite
Comes spring, and the young lady's
fancy lightly turns to thoughts of
clothes. To discover just what the
new shades are, what their smartest
accessories should be, is a problem
to every college miss. The emphasis
seems to be on wools again this year.
