Cinema Group
Sets New Rate
On Film Series!
Two Showings Of Movie
Starring Emil Jannings
To Be Offered Sunday
A special membership rate has
been arranged by the Art Cinemia
League for those wishing to see the
last three of a series of films that
have made motion-picture history.
The first of this specially priced
group will be shown at 3:15 and 8:15
p.m. Sunday at the Lydia Mendel-
ssohn Theatre.
Memberships will be available
Sunday at the box office before the
performance of the first two films,
which are a section of a 1920 pro-
duction of "Hamlet" and "The Last
Laugh," starring Emil Jannings. The
latter picture broke with the pastI
both in technique and in theory;
gaining a new continuity through
the use of mobile rather than sta-
tionary cameras and through spe-
cially, constructed sets.
The last two of the series will be
showing of two popular American
films, "The Thief of Bagdad," star-
ring Douglas Fairbanks, on Jan. 7, i
and "I Am a Fugitive From a Chain
Gang," with Paul Muni, on Jan. 21.
Pictures already presented by the
League were "Way Down East," filmed
in 1920 by D. W. Grififth, dean of
American moving pciture producers,
and a collection of animated cartoons.
The collection depicted the historic
and artistic development of the ani-
mated cartoon from the first crude
efforts in 1879 to the latest success by
Walt Disney. Six of Walt Disney's
cartoons were featured, including the
debut of Mickey Mouse.
Be A Goodfellow
Ypsilanti Group Attends
Hillel Foundation Social}
The newly organized YpsilantiE
Hillel Extension group will attend a
social at 9 p.m. tomorrow at the
Foundation.
This is part of the new Hillel ex-
tension plan to extend the benefits
of the Foundation's functions here
to Jewish students in colleges too
small to maintain their own organi-
zation. A few weeks ago the Hillel
Players group presented two one-act
plays there.

ChangYe In Gargoyle
Asked BY Students
(Continued from Page 1)
with the past issues of the Gargoyle,
but I'm quite well pleased with this
one. To insure more popularity, I
think The Gargoyle's popularity
would be increased if the staff in-
cluded more articles.of general cam-
pus interest such as Harmon's "All-
American Griefs" in place of some of
the so-called Gargoyle humor. I en-
joy the fiction and believe more of it
should be published so as to bring
in the fore-ground more of the cam-
pus literary artists.
Alan Englander, '41, "I must say
this year's Gargoyle -is much better
than that of previous years. More
cartoons, however would really make
it tops."
James Tobin, '41, "This year's Gar-
goyle is inferior to that of last year.
It would be much more popular if it
had better jokes and more cartoons
and above all, if it printed no more of
these stories with affectedly subtle
points." --ub.
