Ballet Group
To Perform
there Monday
A last-minute change in the reper-t
tory of three ballets to be presented
b the American Ballet Caravan at1
:15 p.m. "Monday in the Lydia Men-I
delssohn Theatre was announced yes-
terday by Prof. Herbert A. Kenyon
of the Spanish department, director
of the Theatre. 1
Instead of "City Portrait," a ballet;
depicting life in a modern American
metropolis, the Caravan will present+
the most acclaimed of its dances built
around native themes, "Billy the Kid,"
western desperado who boasted that
he killed 21 men, "not counting In-.
dians."
The score for "Billy the Kid" was
written by Aaron Copland, and the
costumes were designed by Jared
French.
Second of the native American
themes to be incorporated into the
Caravan's ballets is the coming-out
party of a debutante in a middle-
class American town of 1910. The ar-
rangehents by Trude Rittmann, pi-
anist and musical collaborator of the
Caravan, use as a musical theme the
popular songs of the era, and danc-
ing is arranged around the forms of
the Cotillion and early ragtime
dances.
Not all the ballets in the repertory
of the Caravan, however, are Ameri-
can in motif. Reflecting the tradi-
tional training that both Amercian
and European dancers must under-
gp, "Air and Variations," the third
ballet on Monday's program, is clas-
sic In theme and centers about the
Goldman arrangements of music by
Bach. The choreography is by Wil-
liam Dollar, of the Metropolitan Op-
era Ballet.
The American Ballet Caravan was
established three years ago by Lin-
coln Kirstein, author of several books
on dance technique and history, wo
was not content with what he called
"Russian tearoomish interpretations"
of American themes.

This inforhation was imparted yes- }
terday by Prof. J. Raleigh Nelson,f
Director of the International Cen-
ter, who represented the University ,
at the Institute's education division.I
He revealed that a substantial sum
of money has been set aside by the
federal government "to encourage
and assist in the establishment of
exchange arrangements with Latin
America.
This news is of especial importance
here, Professor Nelson stressed, since,
the University has already played a
leading part in the establishment of
exchange scholarships with the
schools of several countries of the
world.
The University was commended on
several occasions at the Institute,
which was called together at the re-
quest of Secretary of State Cordell
Hull, for having led the way by its
exchange agreement with the Insti-
tuto-Brasil Estados Unidos, Professor
Nelson said.
The Institute, which was composed
of more than 600 experts in inter-'
national education, heard at its open-
ing session the Government's pro-
gram for coordinating the various
agencies, both private and govern-

Otto G. Graf of the German de-
partment announced yesterday.
David Gibson, '41, a member of the

experience in puppeteering, Dr. Graf
said. With six other Verein mem-

Nelson.
Although the necessity for cultural,
economic and political ties between
the American nations was recog-
nized as being of prime importance,
Professor Nelson emphasized that dis-
cussions also included exchanges still
possible with other countries of the!
world.
