Variety Of Dances
To Be Performed
By Ballet Caravan
A criterion of the variety of themes
to be presented in the dances of- the,
American Ballet Caravan, which will
appear Monday evening at the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre, is the range
of musical selections for the ballets
-from Johann Sebastian Bach to
Benny Goodman.,
Music from Bach, as arranged by
Trude Rittmann, pianist and musical
collaborator of the Caravan, is em-
ployed in "Air and Variations," the{
only classic ballet in the company's
repertory. Choreography is by Wil-I
liam Dollar, of the Metropolitan Op-
era Ballet, and the costumes are de-
signed by Walter Gifford.
Benny Goodman, King f Sring,
has his inning in "City Portrait,"
since the score is by Henry Brandt,
arranger of Goodman's Bach and
:Mozart compositions.
Based on life in a modern Ameri-
can metropolis, "City Portrait" out-
lines the nervous: tension of work-
men who try to relax with their
families on a summer night. The
costumes were designed by Forrest
Thery, Jr., who recently won State
Magazine's award for the best de-
signs by young theatre artists.
Ragtime music forms the theme of
the third ballet to be presented. Set
in a middle class American home in
a provincial town around 1910,
"Charade" depicts the coming out
party of a debutante. The dancing
is arranged on a basis of American
popular dance music of the period,
around the forms of the Cotillon and
early ragtime dances. The music has
been arranged 'by Trude Rittmann'
and the costumes are by Alvin Colt.
Tickets for the performance go on
sale at 10 a.m. today at the League
box-office. All seats will be reserved.

Student Committee
Runs Toy Libraries
For rrrde Shools

Two Organizations
To Convene Here

More than 300 members of the
American Philological Association and
Toys, labeled and catalogued, are the Archaeological Institute of Amer-
issued ilke books at toy libraries in ica will meet here from Dec. 27 to 29
Ann Arbor elementary schools by a for concurring conventions of their
student committee sponsored by the respective organizations.

Student Religious Association.
Although toy libraries have been
established in both Detroit and Chi-
cago, the idea for the local develop-
ment originated with Frances John-
son, '40. Taking the small inven-
tory of toys on hand at Lane Hall,
Miss Johnson reconditioned them and
established the first library at Jones
School last year. Since then, the
chief problem has been in acquiring
a larger collection_ of toys, through
contributions, to meet the ever in-
creasing demand by school children,
Miss Johnson said.
Sororities and fraternities that are
planning Christmas parties are be-
ing asked to contribute their presents
to the toy libraries she said.
"Toy libraries meet a real need in
many homes," Miss Edith M. Bader,-
principal of Perry School said, "and
have been enthusiastically accepted
by parents and by members of our
teaching staff." "At Perry School,"
she said, "there is an especially great
demand for toys of the mechanical
type, and for games."
Sponsored originally by 'the Ann
Arbor Child Service Bureau, at Perry
Center, the work was taken over last
spring by the Student Religious Asso
ciation. The committee assisting Miss
Johnson includes Roberta Moore, 40,
Jane Wills, '40, Hazel Johnson, '41
and Kay Summers, '42.

Both groups are constituents of the
American Council of Learned Socie-
ties. Sessions of the three-day meet-
ings in the Rackham building are to
consist largely of the reading of pa-
=p rs on specialized topics.
.erof. Warren E. Blake of the Greek
department is chairman of the local
committees of the two societies.
Conferences will also be held of
the Classical Society of the Ame ican
Academy in Rome and of the execu-
tive committee of the American
School of Classical Studies in Athens.

MAKE IT A
MERRY CHRISTMAS
--with GIFTS---

You'd be surprised how telephone
engineers put them to work for you
how to put more and more wires into a telephone cable
without increasing its diameter is an ever present problem
at Western Electric-manufacturing unit of the Bell
System. Existing ducts beneath city streets limit both the
number and the diameter of cables-but demand for tele.
phone service continues to grow.
. Until recently, the largest cable contained 3636 wires.
in a diameter of 2% inches. Years of study led to an en-
tirely new insulating process that saved 311000 of an inch
per wire. Multiply this tiny fraction of an inch by 3636,
and you provide enough spade to place 606 more wires
in the same size cable!-a total of 4242.1
With such resourcefulness, Bell System engineers meet
countless problems. Result: you can talk to almost anv.
