Colonial Story
About Children
To Be Enacted
Box Office Will Be Open
All Week For Season
Or Single Admissions
The story of the children of the
American Revolution will be brought
to Ann Arbor audiences this week-

ren, 1777," second play in the current

mances will be held at 3:30 p.m. Fri-
day and 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. Sat-
urday in the Lydia Mendelssohn The-
atre of the League.
The plot of the play centers around
a group of children of the American
colonies, some from the immediate
neighborhood, one a trapper's son,
one a Quaker, some Tory refugees,
who are all striving to stay hidden
together in an old farmhouse near
the scene of the battle of Saratoga.
During the course of the play, an
American scout and a British officer
are in the house at the same time, a
situation which calls forth all the
ingenuity of the youngsters as well
as that of "Aunt Polly," a Tory refu-
gee who finds it necessary to flirt
with the officer to keep his attention
while the children get the scout out
of the house.
Cast Is Announced
Taking the roles of Miss Polly and
Captain Chauncy are Mary Ellen

Everett Hoagland's Orchestra
Will Play For Engineering Ball
_____- -- -- --

One Of Nation's Youngest
Band Leaders Has Had
Interesting Career
"Music Designed For Dancing" will
arrive in Ann Arbor next week in the
persons of Everett Hoagland and his
Orchestra to furnish the music for
the Engineering Council's annual
winter Engineering Ball from 9 p.m.
to 1 a.m. Friday, Jan. 17 in the Union
Tickets for the dance are being
sold from 8 a.m. to noon and from
1 p.m. to 4 p.m. today in the lobby
of the East Engineering Building and
on the second floor above the Aich
in the West Engineering Building.
Tomorrow tickets will also be avail-
able in the Union.
Hoagland, who is one of the young-
est band leaders in the country, is
well-known for his extensive musical
background which, it is said, is rare-
ly equalled among the modern day
dance maestros.
Studied Music at Six
His musical education began at the
age of six when he was a student suc-
cessively of the piano, violin, trumpet,
saxophone, clarinet and oboe. He
topped this off with a study of ar-
ranging and composition at the Con-
Sequins Lenad
And Glamour
"One little, two little, three little
sequins" may not look like very much
when alone, but put a lot of them to-
gether and you have a glittering,
dazzling creation to suit the heart of
any "femme fatale," and the same
thing goes for beads and the vari-
colored paillettes to be seen on so
many formal clohtes this season.
There's one stunning dinner dress
with a dark, slim skirt topped by a
riot of color in a sequin-banded bo-
dice and it has sleeves, elbow-length,
of the same color and material as the
skirt. Those more and more popu-
lar paillettes come into the limelight
now in a black dinner dress of alter-
nated bands of paillettes and black
crepe sweeping from the neckline to
the hem in an ultra-sophisticated'cre-
ation. '
Formal clothes and dinner dresses
seem to have more or less of a mono-
poly on this form of decoration and
there are certainly some striking out-
fits 'glimmering and shining around.
For the individual who likes to startle
her friends into admiration with that
indefinable something she attains by
wearing the newest and most unusual
in the fashion-world, there's a lus-
cious floor-length pinafore entirely
of coal-black paillettes shining de-
lectably over a lace blouse with huge
sleeves. Oh yes, and the skirt of the
pinafore is slyly slit from the hem
to about the middle of the legs on
both sides.
Even though black is tops for so-
phisticates here's a number in white
to make any clothes-lover's mind
wander. It's a draped white wool
evening dress with a girdle and wide
front panel of crystal beads and dead-
white paillettes. The bodice is simple
and on Grecian lines and the skirt is
full and shimmering with what look
like a million diamonds. There's
another evening creation of pink jer-
sey with a jacket of black wool garn-
ished with pink sequins and pearls
and it really fits that descriptive slang
word, "lush."
We can't help mentioning another
smooth number in black made to wear
over a slinky evening dress. It's a
sleeveless jersey of chenille dotted
with pieces of jet, which is another
ever-more-popular added attraction.

servatory of Music at the University
'of Southern California.
Before forming his own band,
Hoagland played with orchestras in
several Los Angeles Theatres and the
Ambassador Hotel and Montmarte
Cafe in Hollywood. He later became
head of the musical department at
RKO studios.
Hoagland opened his first series
of band engagements with his own
orchestra at the Publix Theatres
which was soon followed by appear-
ances in the largest hotels in Texas.
Returning to Los Angeles he replaced
George Olsen's band at the latter's
Recently Toured Theatres
More recently the young conductor
has toured many of the nation's
"first-run" theatres including the
Fox in Detroit; the Earle in Wash-
ington; the Stanley in Pittsburgh,
and the Earle in Philadelphia.
Among the hotels in which Hoag-'
land has played are the Waldorf-
Astoria in New York where he fol-
lowed Benny Goodman; the Ritz-
Carlton in Boston; the Baker Hotel
in Dallas; the Cleveland Hotel in
Cleveland, and the Rice Hotel in
Featured with the orchestra will
be Don Burke, whose voice, critics
claim, resembles that of Bing Crosby.
The young vocalist has been heard on
most of Hoagland's coast-to-coast
broadcasts over the CBS and Mutual

regretted giving up her position as
personal secretary to the president

Miss Rasquin was the first em-

the Foundation when it was organ-

November, 1938. Recipient of many
funds including the money gained
from the annual President's Birth-

out, is to conduct investigations to

ex-executive said.
"The Foundation has grown so
rapidly during its first two years in
existence, that in case of an emer-I

respirators to any section of the
country within one day", Miss Ras-
quin disclosed.
College Is Necessary For Her
Asked why she left such a fascin-
ating job to take up her studies at
the University, Miss Rasquin unhesi-
