Dance Numbers In 'i-Falutin'

This year's donto Sall will fea-
ture Ace Brigode and his Virgini-
ans. Brigode's orchestra is the or-
iginator of the "Talkie" Song Titles
which have been presented regular-
ly over the networks. There will
also be three novelty singers. The
affair will be held in the League
Ballroom on March 15."
PoorMan's Frolic'
-oFeature Music
By BuddyFriend
Have you moie than $100,000 or
a ring in your possession which is
more than 150 karats? If this is
the case please keep away from the
"Poor Man's Frolic" which will be
held from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. in the
League Ballroom Friday, March 1st.
Buddy Friend and his orchestra
have been engaged to play for the
dancers who are to be neither cap-
italists nor freshman. This appear-
ance will be the first in the League
or the Union. To be presented with
Friend will be Ginny Fowler, the only
person on campus who has developed
the ability of being both vocalist and
pianist. Last year Miss Fowler was
featured as the vocalist with Charlie
.Zwick and his orchestra who played
in the Ballroom of the League.
Friend has chosen for his motto,
"The New Trend in Music." In keep-
ing with this saying, he has devel-
oped a style of orchestration which
lends itself neither to the jitterbug
jag or the ever popular waltz step.
This new idea lends itself very suc-
cessfully for a new type of dancing.

Novelty Interpretations
Of Life InSeminary
Chaperoned, prim life in an old-
fashioned girls' school such as Temple
Grove Seminary may not seem to be
our idea of carefree school days; but
a preview of the dances which will
appear in "Hi-Falutin"',, the 1940
JGP, indicates a pretty good round
of fun enjoyed by those young ladies.
The "Bloomer Girls" number is a
take-off on gym classes of the 1900's,
and features a number of awkward
sylphs in the process of learning bal-
let. Incidentally, the junior women
who are to be in this number are
learning that there is an art even to
bad dancing!
Comic Numbers Featured
Other comic numbers will include
a Street Sweepers' chorus of fast
tap-dancing, a whirling number re-
sembling a Flora Dora dance, and a
Horse dance.
Inebriation was a source of comedy
in those staid and strict days and a
dance number by three somewhat in-
toxicated "sloppy joes" is another
feature of "Hi-Falutin' "which should
remind some of us vaguely of our
own follies.
Runny Rug Dance
In 1910 )Ahen "Everybody Was
Doin' It" the dance r'eferred to was
the Bunny Hug, and now, thirty years
later, it makes its return appearance
in the Junior Girls Play, with Kath-
erine Sprick, '41, assisting with the
direction, as well as directing various
other numbers in the production.
Virginia Osgood, '41, is chairman of
all the dancing, and promises that
this year's exhibition will maintain
the high standard of all previous
JGP's for good entertainment.
Temple Grove was not without its
snooping gossiper, typical of any
small community, and there will be
a toe-dance by that character in "Hi-
Falutin' ". A soft-shoe skating num-
ber is also included as a more aesthet-
ic performance by the dancers, and
a bicycle chorus will be done on tan-
dem bicycles, which were a popular
form of date at that time.
Two solos will be featured in the
production, and will be done by Ruth
Ense and Ethel Wnnai. The "Elec-
Lovely fresh blooms that will
last so much longer. Potted
plants and spring flowers fresh

Of Comic Effect
tion Day Tap" is a specialty num-
ber which comes at the climax of one
scene in the play, when the "right
person" wins the election.
Betty Ann Chaufty, '41, is chair-
man of music, and Bill Sawyer's
orchestra will play for "Hi-Falutin' ".
Miss Chaufty has announced the
names of those who are in choruses
will be posted on the bulletin board
in the Undergraduate Office today.
All junior women who are not in-
cluded in some number may attend a
meeting at 2 p.m. Sunday in the
League, when they will be placed in
a number in the play, Jane Grove,
general chairman, stated yesterday.

They wouldn't let him in. He said
that he'd written the thing, and that
they'd invited him, but it took three
ushers and the manager to get Max
Hodge past the ticket taker last night
to see the show he'd promoted since
his sophomore year.
Anyone who knows him (and most
everyone but freshmen does) has
trouble separating Max from the
Gargoyle and the Opera and Lamarr
when they think of him. They'll
never forget that famous issue of
Garg which ran a full-length por-
trait of Hedy after her marriage to
someone or other and the swan-song
of devotion which ran with it-all
unmistakably tinged with the Hodge
There are lots of stories about him.
There's the one about his passion for
Hallowe'en candies. They say that
when the Ann Arbor supply ran out
about the middle of December, he
used to make occasional trips to
Ypsi where there was a store that
still had some-and the time of day
or night meant nothing when Max
decided that he needed a bit of the
Hallowe'en stuff.
And there's the one about the time
he set the Health Service on end by
turning up with a blood count lower
than anything on record. They told
him he wouldn't live long, and he told
them that he hadn't been to bed for
five days-so he went to bed, and his
blood count went up.
Rumor has it that he wrote at night
-that the script of "Four Out of
Five" the product of several all night
sessions, and that his ambition is to
write scenarios for Hollywood. What-
ever his ambition, he's the kind of
individual you like to write about, and
better than that-there's something
about his whimsical personality which
makes you like him in spite of lateI
Gargoyles. And they say that the
Opera is good.
