Elsa Maxwell Will Speak Here
On 'The Science Of Laughter'
Elsa Maxwell, arbiter de luxe of
international society, who will speak
at Hill Auditorium April 1, may be
cllled the exception extraordinaire
to the rule that best, things come in
Her physical qualities, however,
co not hinder her in living up to her
happy philosophy. "Let's have fun" is
her guiding star, and she follows it
even if it may mean riding to the
hunt on a donkey.
Known For Wit
Miss Maxwell, who promises to
spring a few surprises on Ann Ar-
bor audiences when she entertains
them with her talk, is known for her
Sparkling wit and vast supply of fas-
cinating-we never like to exaggerate
-anecdotes. She will speak on "The
Science of Laughter," and if her suc-
cess at making George Bernard Shaw
and such other cynics roar is any
indication of her ability, audiences
here had better equip themselves with
strait- jackets-they'd prevent side-
splitting, you know.
The high-spirited Elsa will speak
under the auspices of the Michigan
Alumnae Club for the benefit of the
women's swimming pool. Since wo-
men now either have to depend on
the generosity of the men in allow-
ing them to use the Union pool two
nights a week or wade around in
I the little "tank" in Barbour Gym-
versity Health Service puts the im-
portance of it into the following
words: "There is a real need for
this pool. All campus organizations
are impressed with the fact and are
contributing efforts and funds to the
cause. The Michigan Alumnae Club,
familiar with campus situations, is
squarely behind this project."
Tickets for the hilarious and screwy
fun-f est are on sale now at the box
office of Hill Auditorium. Escape the
midsemester blues-come and be gay
with Elsa Maxwell!
