King Cotton comes into his own during the summer months and
no one is willing to dispute his right to rule. Especially when shops are
filled with charming "eyefulls" such as these cool, attractive dresses,
both versatile enough to serve any occasion. The polka dot jacket covers
a cleverly styled dress and is subject to removal when the sweater proves
suitable. An arresting print in luscious colors adorns the justly popular
two-piece frock.

Temperamental Dog Star, Actress

Form "Behind The Scene


More than first-rate acting, pol-
ished lines, a superb setting and in -
comparable lighting went into "The
World We Make," which opened yes-
terday at the Lydia Mendelssohn
it seems that the fictitious char-
acters that move about an imagined
setting are alive and real after all.
For instance, consider Crab, Ann Ar-
bor's leading mongrel and a sea-
soned actress at that.
Faultless Dress Rehearsal
Poor Crab has been heckled and
led about like any ordinary dog. Af-
ter going through a faultless dress
rehearsal Sunday night, without a
misplaced bark or whimper, she had
to submit to the indignity of being
literally led home by Carl Reed, the
stage manager, just as if she hadn't
known Ann Arbor, and its every back
alley from the days when she roamed
free and lighthearted, before decid-
ing to attach herself to Prof. Wil-

was late, and all the apartment house
windows were darkened. Mr. Reed
had no idea which could be Crab's
home, but with the true instinct
of the outdoor man, he let Crab
have her head.
Crab lost no time in finding her
way to one of the apartment door-
ways, and Mr. Reed promptly opened
the door and shoved her in. The rest
of his night (there really was no
rest) was spent imagining some in-
nocent and dogless family waking
to the sound of deafening howls from
the intruder.
The same night Carrie Bridewell
arrived in Ann Arbor with Frederica
Going, to begin work on "Boyd's
Miss Bridewell, seasoned trouper
though she may be, may have been
slightly disconcerted by the fact that
the train from New York had broken
lown, and was therefore considerably
Murnan Met Train
James Murnan, who met the train,
left his guests at the house where
they were to stay, not far from cam-
The next morning, Miss Bridewell
was found roaming about the League,
She had left the house at a fairly
early hour to get breakfast, she
wailed, and "For heaven's sakes, now
I don't know where I live."
No one was around who did know
either, until Mrs. Lucille Walz, the
business manager, happened to re-
call vaguely some mention of a cer-
tain rooming house. But when tele-
phoned, the landlady offered no,

help. "Some one did come in lastl
night, but I don't know who it was,'
it was so late."
It's certainly true that the smooth-
ticking plays that are seen in the
theatre give no indication of theI
wild stories that lie behind them.
However, one story was far from
wild, dramatic seasoners are proud
to say.
Jane Broder Arrives
Jane Broder, one of the biggest
casting agents of the country, ar-
rived in Ann Arbor for the first
time Monday, to see a rehearsal of
Oche World We Make." Miss Bro-
der, who has done the casting for
the Ann Arbor dramatic season for
13 years, was sufficiently impressed
with the professional character of
scenes and programs and general
management to exclaim, "This isn't
stock; this is Broadway!"
