Festival Cast
Will Feature
Noted Women
Feminine talent, still garnering
deserved laurels from its perform-
ance in the University Oratorical
Association series, will once again
add brilliancy to a University proj-
ect when a cast including such not-
ables as Ruth Chatterton, Mady
Christians, Diana Barrymore, and
Madge Evans comes to Ann Arbor
to appear in the annual Dramatic
Nationally acclaimed for both her
stage and screen performances, Miss
Chatterton has been termed "a na-
tural" for the role of Eliza, the cock-
ney girl who made her debut as a
duchess, in George Bernard Shaw's
"Pygmalion." As Miss Chatterton
expects to do this play in New York
ithis fall, great interest is being
shown in the Ann Arbor production
both locally and in New York.
The second week of the Festival
will bring a colorful presentation of
Shakespeare's seldom-done comedy
"The Winter's Tale," with the dis-
tinguished Viennese actress, Mady
Christians, as the feminine lead.
Miss Christians, who has appeared
in several Hollywood productions,
has recently won favorable notice
on the legitimate stage for her work
with Orson Welles and Maurice
Diana Barrymore, the debutante
daughter of Michael Strange and
John Barrymore, will play the part
of Perdita in "The Winter's Tale."
Miss Barrymore, following in the
footsteps of her famous father, has
elected to follow a theatrical career
and, with her appearance last winter
with Laurette Taylor in "Outward
Bound," has already won dramatic
acclaim in her own right.
A seasoned stage and screen ac-
tress since she wa five year old,
Madge Evan, who in private life is
Mrs. Sydney Kingsley, will make her
Ann Arbor debut

Pro ject Plans
For Decorating
Include Murals
Typical Freshman Woman
And Campus Wardrobes
To Be Theme Of Dance
Ten feet of colorful cardboard de-
picting the typical freshman woman
entering the University will be the
focal point of decorations for "Heav-
enly Daze," to be held from 9 p.m.
to 1 a.m. Friday, April 26, in the
League Ballroom.
Against the orchestra backdrop,
this oversized cut-out will maintain
the central theme of the annual
"Fresman Project," which this year
will be a take off on the bewilder-
ment of entering "greenies" The
pleated paper skirt, campus saddle
shoes in paint and paper, and "deb-
bie" hat will stand out against a
background of heavenly bodies such
as half moons, stars, and ringed
"Bull Session"
Twelve other murals around the
walls of the ballroom will concen-
trate on the freshman theme in show-
ing highlighted scenes of the first
weeks in a student's career at col-
lege. "Bull Session" is the name of
the pajama party scene in which two
upperclassmen with carefree senior-
ity expressions explain the ins and
outs of life in general to an over-
interested ingenue. A coke bottle
and an alarm clock that shows two
a.m. will emplete the tale of all-night
The Saddle Shoe Progression will
tell the story of four-year footgear
with posters in which a shiny white
pair gradually diminishes in bright-
ness until the usual grime labels it
"well worn." "Eight O'Clock Class,"
depicts a yawning professor labori-
ously lecturing to the freshman
"goon," in spotless saddles, and to
the poster beauty,sin the usual dirtied
brown and whites.
Orientation Week
"Orientation Week" will be a fam-
iliar scene, with the advisor talk-
ing away on the subjects of libraries,
health service, and freshman lectures,
while the young students, leather
handbooks in hand, try to sum up
everything and to understand it, too.
"Rushing" will picture real bewilder-
ment, with a silk-clad member of '43
listening to wonder tales from the
surrounding sorors, while the back-
ground swarms with greek letters.
Closely associated with the decor-
ation motif is the dating bureau, es-
tablished by the Patrons Committee
for the purpose of leading out of
the daze of dating those people who
have not yet discovered the perfect
partner. Now open for interv.iewing,
men and women of any class or school
may apply to the bureau which is en-
deavoring to match dateless students
according to their preferences.
