Music .of the French impressionis-
tic school will be skillfully woven into
the Stuart masque theme which will
be the basis for "The Winter's Tale,"
opening tonight in the Lydia Mendels-
sohn Theatre.
Separated as they are by both time
and space, these two elements fuse
to complement each other in a re-
markable way. The gay lightheart-
edness of the music in its lighter
moods, and the penetrating chords
of the more somber bits are beautiful-
ly adapted to the moods of the con-
ventionalized scenery and 17th cen-
tury court players' costumes.
Little Symphony To Play
Much of the music has been com-
posed by Marion McArtor, who is
obtaining his masters degree in theory
and composition here. McArtor
planned his arrangements for the
Little Symphony Orchestra, conduct-
ed by Thor Johnson, which will play
for the production.
In all, the orchestra will make 16
entrances, including the overture,
1'entracte, and music which will ac-
company the action itself in several
places. Because a Shakespearian play
usually runs for four or five hours,
this production has been consider-
ably shortened.
Part of the difficulty of arranging
the music was due to the fact that
the music must carry the audience
over from the end of a scene of
one mood to the beginning of another
scene of an entirely different mood.
Subtle key and harmony changes
bridge these gaps.
Overture Is Brilliant
McArtor composed the overture, a
brilliant and fairly difficult selec-
tion. Before the first curtain Caro-
lyn Rayburn will sing Quilter's ar-
rangement of Edmund Waller's "Go"
Lovely Rose." A Minuet by Debussy
will be played, and dancers will per-
form to a ballet by Pierne. Chaus-

son's "Prison Scene" will create the
mood for the imprisonment of the
Queen Hermione. Ravel's "Fairy
Garden" will be played in the last act
as typifying the return of Hermione,
and the happy end of the play.
A delicate pastorale by McArtor
will be a background for the shep-
herd scenes. Split-second timing is
required for each entrance of the or-
chestra. Here and there in the script
20 seconds of music may be required,
ii a certain mood and tempo.
Thor Johnson To Conduct
The Little Symphony, which was
created by Mr. Thor Johnson, has
toured the country, and played many
outstanding engagements. They fur-
nished orchestration for "Two Gentle-
men of Verona," which was present-
ed here last dramatic season.
To a person hearing the Little
Symphony for the first time, the ex-
quisite fusion of tone and the per-
fection of the blending of the 15
pieces would probably be the out-
standing characteristic.
The orchestra consists of five vio-
lins, two violas, 'cello, bass viol, flute,
oboe, clarinet, bassoon, French horn
and trumpet. These arrangements
also call for the use of the celeste, a
stringed instrument resembling a
small piano, with a clear and rather
sustained bell-like tone.

There I was practically in slumber land last night
talking in her sleep. It was quite exciting to listen to

places she had been.

From what I could gather, she went from house to house Friday night,
covering all the places she could. Tt seems that she started out with Jim
and they went to the Union, where they saw Don Stewart and Jane Rosing
off guard as they jitter-bugged info the ballroom with Jim Wilke and Mary
McBeth watching their capers. After leaving the Union, the enthusiastic
pair ran over to the Beta house to view their black-out party. Walking
into the door they heard a siren blow and saw John Hague and Ted Lynch
duck behind sand bags as though the raid were the real McCoy.
With hearts growing weaker from fear of a true raid, Sue and Jim
went on to the Phi Psi formal. Because they weren't properly attired, they
only stayed there long enough to see Catherine Gainey, John Goodell, Mary
Ashley and Ralph Zimmerman dance by. The Chi Phis were there too,
seeming to be doing an excellent job of wolfing.
At that moment Sue began moaning and tossing in her bed, saying
something about that lazy old Jim (who must have been
lagging behind her as they went on to the Theta Chi party,
where Gordon Hardy was pounding out a special arrangement ,3
of a favorite swing number.) Nancy Surgenor and Jean Mor-
gan were leaning on his piano and Chan Pinney let go, giving)
his vocal interpretation of one of Hardy and Bowen's tin?--1
pan alley numbers. Maya Gruhzit and Bill Elmer were stand-
ing by enjoying the special little show.

Next on the list was the Phi Beta Delta formal where Syl-
via Neivert, Marv Neivert, Marcia Cohodes and Marty Pud-
man were seen with their heads together. But as soon as
Jim came out of the door, he fell in a dead faint. Susy was
quite disgusted with his lack of vitality and went on to the
Alpha Tau Omega house alone. Art Brandt, B. J. Crawford, Dotty Tideman
and Ken Myers were there, dancing contentedly along to the soft strains,
of "Polka-dots and Moonbeams," while Sue Flaningan and Harry Clark sat
on the side-lines waiting for a really peppy number.
The lack of an escort could not stip Sue for she hitch-hiked out to
Washtenaw Hills Country Club to stop in at the Delta Upsilon and Delta
formal. Her voice was beginning to peter out as though she were remem-
bering how tired she had been that night, but before she was quiet I caught
the names of Joan Williams, Jack Erwin, Peggy Seabright and Emmet

New Styles In Blouses
Are Fifty Years Young
Even in these ultra-modern days
of 1940 A.D., that Mid-Victorian touch
is being added to the blouses every-
one is wearing. One particularly
flattering model is called "Sheer Ro-
mance" and is a popular version of
the frilly, feminine styles worn in
the '90's. It is a rayon sheer with
a scalloped lace medallion inset and
the very latest collarless neckline.
That problem of what to wear with
tennis skirts and shorts has been
solved by versatile designers. A spun
rayon shirt, also with the new collar-
less neckline has short sleeves, and
smartly styled initials printed ver-
tically down the front.

Susy's Associated Press wires seemed to be open only to social events
of Saturday night for she had a never-ending store of information that she
continued to relate. Tau Kappa Epsilon held its formal that evening and
Helen Brady Al Hendrick, Leigh Burleson and Gene LaSalle were seen sit-
ting on the steps breathing the refreshing spring air.
