Gloves Regn
Former Place
In Wardrobes
Ever since last year when some
bright young designer started sewing
up gloves in a new and unthought of,
way, gloves have taken on a person-
ality of their own.
This fall when the winter collec-
tions came out of Paris, all the de-
signers featured gloves with their
suits, coats and evening dresses. Most
striking were the elbow and even
shoulder length evening gloves. These
gloves either match or are contrasted

Playing without intermission from
10 p.m. to 3 a.m., the two bands will
alternate at half hour intervals.
Along with the announcement of
the one orchestra comes the further
announcement by Don Wirtchafter,
'41, publicity chairman, of a new
type of ticket which will be useld
this year for the first time.
Attached to the ticket will be two
coupons, the first to be detached at
the door as a ticket of admission. The
second coupon will be detached next
for the favor at a favor booth to be
situated in the lobby. This change
in style of ticket was designed in
the first place to eliminate' people
coming to Assistant Dean Walter B.
Rea after the dance to ask for thet
ticketaasra souvenir; and in she sec-
ond place to eliminate crowding at
the door as the favors are passed out.
Other plans for the dance are rap-
idly reaching a conclusion, lfarwood
averred. According to Hardy, music
chairman; the second band will be
announced as soon as a contract has
been signed.
Ticket sales will start in a few days,
Harwood said with sales being ap-
portioned \through two days to allow
everyone an equal chance to obtain

were often times decorated with se-

something are the long flashing se-
quins for glittering occasions. Ap-
parently the designers believe in the
old proverb "a bird in hand is worth
two in the bush," for now there are
feather gloves.
Fur on gloves either for decoration
or for utility are featured with coats
and suits this winter. There are
half-breed gloves of black Persian
lamb and cedar colored swede palms,
and gloves of green swede with black
lapin pompons, or raspberry swede

The potentialities of a bustle glove

Robert Corrigan Denies He Is
Rival Of 'Wrong Way' Aviator

Future Career 1o IncludeI
Teachin g, Professional
Scenic Design Work
Robert Corrigan, Grad., will never
be called "Wrong Way" if he can
help it, for unlike the now famous
aviator of the same name he has his
future all planned.
Corrigan plans to teach scenic de-
sign in some college or university,
and then after gaining a sufficient
amount of experience do professional
stage designing.
Now employed by the League to de-
sign Children's Theatre, JGP, French
Play and Spanish Play scenery, Cor-
rigan was not always so sure of his
goal in life. Starting school as a
pre-med, Corrigan vas, to use his
own phrase "not very happy about
it." He soon realized that it was the
theatre that he was really interested
in, enrolled in a stage-craft course
-and has spent all of his time on it
ever since.
At one stage of his undergraduate
career, Corrigan took part in Play
Production presentations. He ap-
peared in "High Tor," "This Proud
Pilgrimage," "Daughters of Atreus"
and "Arms and the Man."
Corrigan design., constructs and
paints scenery. When assigned a
play, he first reads the script and

follows the necessary general require-
ments. He always works for a cen-
tral theme in the scenery, one which
will be in keeping with the play and
tie the scenery together into unity.
Now at work on the coming Chil-
dren's Theatre musical, "Dick Whit-
tington and His Cat," Corrigan is
designing and executing six different
sets for indoor and outdoor scenes.
In this play he achieves scenic unity
by having portals on either side of
the stage in every scene. Another
factor which will bind the scenes
together is the" heavy old English
beam work which will-be included in
all the sets.
Working with Corrigan on Chil-
dren's Theatre scenery are nearly a
dozen members of the Theatre Arts
Committee. Says Corrigan of his
female assistants, "They're not afraid
to dig in and work."
Women! Help Needed!
No Costumes; No Play
Women, women, women - any

Children's Theatre costume commit-
Featured in the coming Children's
Theatre presentation will be over 150
Ann Arbor children and they all need

at work in the costume room every
afternoon and evening till the play
The play, which will be a musical
entitled "Dick Whittington and His'
Cat," will open at 3:45 p.m. Friday
at the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.

terday at a dinner. Dr. Masten is a
professor of neuropsychiatry at the

After the dinner, plans were dis-
cussed for the national convention of
