Political science major turned

record of petite Anne Kleiner, '40,
chief electrician of Play Production,
who became so interested in a hobby
that she decided to make it her life
Interested in the technical end of
the theatre since her high school
days, Miss Kleiner experimented with
work in property and scenery divi-
sions before discovering that stage
lighting was, for her, the most fas-
cinating department of all.

The problem is this-if you. went
to your Wednesday classes on Thurs-
day thinking that Thursday were
Wednesday, would you be one day
early or one day late, because your
Wednesday classes are also given on
To carry the argument still fur-
ther-since your Wednesday classes
also are given on Monday. would you
possibly be three days late? The
solution of this problem depends
most particularly on whether you
have classes on Wednesday, because
if you don't have any classes on
Wednesday it would be very easy to
understand why Thursday would
seem like Monday. On the other
hand it would be difficult to figurej
out how Wednesday got into the pic-
All this has a definite psychologi-
cal effect-prophetic, almost. Take
for instance the possibility that this
should become a habit, and youI
should decide to go to your wedding
on Tuesday when it was really
scheduled for Wednesday. Thinking'
that you had been stood up, you
throw away your corsage of orchids
and dump your dress in the ashcan
where your best friend finds it.
So you go off and sulk on Wednes-
day which you think is Thursday';
and in the meantime your fiance
goes to the church only to find that
he really has been stood up, so he
marries the girl who got the orchids
out of the ashcan (or was it thel
dress) and who knows that Wednes-I
day is Wednesday and they live hap-
pily ever after while you go to class

Following the traditional Christ-'
mas spirit, the Michigan Alumnae
Council is again presenting unusual
articles for sale in its office in the
League. Along with the many linens
and other items for sale, the Council
has obtained a wealth of handmade,
silver jewelry produced by Mary
Gage of New York City.
Mary Gage has for many years
made sterling silver jewelry of her
own design as a hobby and within
the last couple of years this hobby
has grown to the size of a healtl"a
little business carried out in Green-
Crystal Spheres Used
Among the most unusual of her
rings, pins, bracelets and other lovely
productions are her pieces set with
whole crystal balls of many sizes.
These have been used in tailored de-
signs made into sets so that ring,
pin and bracelet may all be match-
Oriental lotus leaves are employed
in some of her most popular crea-
tions and are built around the cry-
stal spheres with tiny silver water
bubbles clustering over the piece.
Taking most ol her inspirations
from nature, Mary Gage has made
use of the design possibilities found
in bamboo and water-lily leaves and
has created many striking silver
earrings and clips modeled after the
These same leaves are found

oriental stones are to be found in
many of the jeweled pieces and are
treated in an unusual manner. Natur-

Persian Miniattures Seen
Persian miniatures may well rank
as the most unusual of the many
items to be found there. Mounted
on simple silver backings, pins, rings,
and clips of these delicately designed
oriental paintings on mother of pearl
and ivory are bound to make the
ideal gift for some one who seems
to have everything.
Hand carved carnelians, rose quartz
and onyx are all employed in Miss
Gage's own designs for her jewelry.
Huge lotus leaves, bunches of grapes,
and exciting little bugs are all to
be found among the large exhibit
of this jewlery on sale at the League.
Due to the tremendous popularity
Mary Gage enjoyed at the New York
World's Fair this summer, she has
had to enlarge her shop and employ
several master-craftsmen to assist
her in the hobby that grew to a pro-
