Shirley Silver
Is Chairman
Of Junior Play
Senior Women Will Witness
Opening-Night Performance
Following Traditional Supper
(Continued from Page 1)
director was Prof. John L. Brumm,
of the journalism department.
Senior supper remained the occas-
ion for the opening of the play. In
1930 the League building was com-
pleted and the performances took
place from then on in the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre.
Senior Supper has been a tradition
on the Michigan campus for many
years. At this banquet for the senior
women, songs are sung to the tune
of the songs from their own Junior
Girls Play of the year before. After
the supper, the women march to the
theatre to see the first performance
by the junior women, and it had bet-
ter be a good one, for the very lives
of the juniors are imperiled. Seniors
have been known to arm themselves
with some very peculiar missiles with
which to honor a play which doesn't
quite live up to their expectations
Again, recollections of their own
performance of the year before has
probably saved the necks of the per-
formning juniors many a time.
Only once were men used in JGP;
this was in 1934, in the "Mulberry
Bush." Last year's "Hi-Fallutin'," was
a comedy of the early 1900's, a riot
in ragtime, sprinkled with 23-skidoos.
Costumes for this play had a great
deal of work and detail to them, as
do this year's.

Native Alaskan
Lore Displayed
In Collection
Eskimo and India art is featured
in the collection in the show case at
the International Center, for which
the articles were lent by Dr. Sonia
Cheifetz, of University Hospital.
Dr. Cheifetz, who is now the assist-
ant resident in pediatrics, started
amassing her interesting collection
when she was Maternal Child Health
Director in Alaska, picking, up the
various pieces as her work carried her
about the territory. She pointed out
the difference between the articles
nade by Eskimos, who live above the
Arctic Circle, and those made by the
Indians in Alaska.
Eskimos Carve Ivory
Eskimos made carved walrus ivory
pieces. White ivory comes from ani-
mals recently killed, while the darker
pieces are fossilized ivory. The dark-
er ivory is, the older it is, and so
the more valuable it is. An especially
lovely bracelet in the collection is of
cream color streaked with tan.
The Office of Indian Affairs is
trying to stimulate ivory carving, and
is also trying to revive Indian arts
which have been neglected. They
hope to make better Indians of the
natives., Dr. Cheifetz has a totem
pole made by a boy in a government
school at Ketchikan who has recap-
tured an art hidden for generations
in the mind of an old Indian.
Indian Art Is Shown
Among the other Indian articles is
a hand made Caribou jacket. Very few
will take the part of Hippolia, and
Helene Herzfeld will be Mande. Ma-
rie Holmes is Siesta, and Margaret
Wright will play Ennui. Agnes Crow
goes oriental to impersonate Mr. Fu.
"Jumping Jupiter!" has been re-
quested to take to the road by Bay
City, home of Frances Patterson, '41,
who wrote the script.
