Canadian Red
Cross Is Aided
By Ruth Draper
It probably hasn't been calculated
as yet how many lives the Canadian
Red Cross has saveci G.rough the
cleverness. to say nothing o. the gen-
erosity, of Ruth Draper. who is per-
haps the most talented monologist
in the United States today.
Miss Draper spent last year tour-
ing Canada,giving presentations o
her own skits. which are really ten-
minute dramas. Profits of the tout
amounted to $17,000, which sh(
turned over to the Red Cross for its
relief work.
Lately Miss Draper has been re-
ceiving well-deserved acclaim ir
South America, and in the Southerr
states-California, Texas, Oklahoma
Louisiana and up the coast.
Previous to these tours, she had
decided that the quiet life was the
life for her; but it seems that she
will not be allowed to remain al
peace. However, sne loves her work

and finds it a perfect outlet for heer
energy. Certainly her originality and
her depth of perception of the hu-
man personality in all its phases
should never be allowed to stagnate.
fMiss Draper will be presented to
Ann Arbor on Oct. 29, as one of the
featured attractions of the Oratorical
Series lectures.

Dean Alice C. Lloyd will speak
to the Freshman women and their
upperclass advisers at 5 p.m. to-
day in the Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre, instead of at 8 p.m. as
previously stated in The Daily.

New Ear-Revealing
Hair Styles Revive
Interest In Earrings
Everyhing has its comeback, and
now the time has come for earrings
to again draw feminine, and mascu-
line, attention.
They've been appearing every-
where, with every type of costume,
and there's little doubt that they'll
be more and more in evidence as the
winter wears on. Because pompa-
dours pull back the hair, and be-
cause even those without pompa-
dours are beginning to tire of long
straight bobs, ears are beginning to
show and sport their bit of decora-
College women will love their small
round pearl earrings for dates and
formals. Either a cluster of pearls
or a single one worn in the center
of the ear-lobe are most popular.
In their more glamorous moments
young coeds will sparkle with elabor-
ate jeweled clips that cover the ear-
