'Final Fling' Today

Gwen Cooper
To Be Soloist
At Last Dance
Ice Cream To Be Given Out
By Expert Union Fountain Men
At Specially Constructed Bar
Hundreds of ice cream addicts are
looking forward to joining the couple
pictured at the right for a "Final
Fling" from 9 p.m. to midnight to-
day in the Union Ballroom.
At this time, 998 ice cream cones
will be unearthed (the original num-
ber having been reduced by the pub-
licity committee) from the subter-
ranean basement of the Union where
they have been stored in preparation
for the dance.
Miss Cooper To Sing
Final exams will be forgotten,
promises Chuck Dotterrer, '44E,
chairman, as arrangements have been
made so that special Union confi-
dence men will evict from the floor
any one mentioning bluebooks, finals,
or similarly disagreeably subjects.
At this last Union dance, Bill Saw-
yer will conclude his spring engage-
ment. He has promised several spe-
cialty numbers and his soloist, Gwen
Cooper, will sing that perennial fav-
orite, "I've Got Those Ice Cream
Blues."
Throughout the dance, a specially
erected ice cream bar will dispense
ice cream cones to all guests, just for
the asking. Expertly trained Union
fountain men will be on hand to
serve.
Union To Cooperate
The Union, in a proclamation, has
attempted to cooperate with the re-
cent attempts to restore the Michi-
gan coed's hemoglobin blood count
to what has been deemed normal.
The terms of this proclamation (see
yesterday's Daily> prove that much
thought has been expended on the
refreshment plan as affecting the
health of the Michigan lass.
Since investigations show that ap-
proximately 162 '2 foot pounds of en-
ergy are spent in an evening of social
dancing, the Union will make up this
deficiency by providing 1,820,000 cal-
ories in the form of 98 ice cream
cones.
Ball Tournaments
Won By Kappa Delta,I
Kappa Alpha Theta
Despite flooded fields and a speed-
ed-up semester, the women's spring
softball tournament has come to a
close, with Kappa Delta, as winner of
the A tournament and Kappa Alpha
Theta, taking top honors in the B
tournament.
To achieve its place, Kappa Delta
defeated Chi Omega, 11 to 4, in the
finals of the A tournament. In the
finals of the B tournament, Alpha
Chi Omega went down in defeat to
Kappa Alpha Theta, with a score of
8 to 11.
Kappa Delta retained its glory in
a playoff between the winners of the
two tournaments, on one of the first
sunny days of the season, Thursday,
at Palmer Field. Barbara Alt, '42,
pitched her team to victory with
Helen Clark, '43, on the receiving
end. In the pitcher's box for Kappa
Alpha Theta was Mary-Jane Romine,
'45, and Barbar Chadwick, '45, did
the catching.
Home runs for the winning team
were hit by Delores Knapp, '44, and
Alice Dehlin, '44P. Final score of the
game was Kappa Delta, 34, and
Kappa Alpha Theta 17.
The University of Michigan Wo-,
man's Glee Club will sing tomorrow
morning at the Methodist Church.

998 Cones Remain For 'Final Fling'

TWO

Actors

In Behrman's Play

Are

Summer Theatre Members

By BERYL SHOE>TFIELD
Summer theatre, characterized by
stock company performances in reno-
vated barns and outmoded buildings,
is the off-season vacation of two
members of the "No Time for Com-
edy~ cast, the S. N. Behrman farce
now playing at the Lydia Mendels-
sohn Theatre.
Lauren Gilbert, who used to ap-
pear with the Michigan Repertory
players opposite Martha Scott, then
a University student, is co-manager
as well as actor in his own summer
theatre, inaugurated last year in
Hyoke, Mass. ,.
Actors Develop Followings
Here the resident company, made
up of "people who have played to-
gether for a long time on the stage."
specifies that no stars be imported
during the 10 week drama season, so
that individuals appearing week after
week in different roles develop a fol-
lowing of their own among theatre-
1:oers of Holyoke and environs. Two
f t plfh resentgrouphave been in
dcr<aaticy at. Michian-summer thec-
atre director, Dorothy Crane, and
Jackson Perkins, now Mrs. Gilbert,
whom the actor met here.
The play house, formerly a "Casino"
which featured opera and vaudeville,
is located in an amusemient park and
seats 1,000. Last year's program
proved so popular that the Holyoke
troupe played an extra week-"and
maidc money," Gilbert proudly adds.
Theatre Founded In 1931
"Watch on th Rhine," "Skylark"
and "Separate Rooms" will be draw-
ing cards on the 1942 bill. Ralph Ed-
wards of radio's "Truth and Conse-
quence" show will be a guest on this
season's program.
A summer theatre actor of long
standing is Carl Benton Reid, famil-
iar to many for his performance in
"The Little Foxes," both with Tal-
lulah Bankhead on the stage, and
with Bette Davis in the film version.
Reid has been with the Algonquin,
Maine, Playhouse group since 1931,
when the summer theatre, founded by
the late Walter Hartwig, opened in a
remodeled garage. Here they played
for four seasons, until "a heaul iful
new theatre" was made available by
director-producer Hartwir.
In contrast to Gilbert's policy re-

garding dramatic importations, the
Algonquin Theatre features non-resi-
dent stage stars for each vehicle,
beside maintaining a staff of six
actors throughout the season. Madge
Evans, appearing here next week in
"Petticoat Fever" and Daina Barry-
more, also a Dramatic Season star,
have appeared on the Algonquin
stage.
Gilbert And Reid
Actors Gilbert and Reid are old
friends, having played Shakespeare-
an roles together in Chicago's famed
Globe Theatre for several seasons.
Gilbert is now trying to persuade
Reid to leave Algonquin and appear
as a guest on the Holyoke stage this
summer, to make the little group of
"people who have played together for
a long time" complete.
Former Daily Editor
Married At Leag ueI
Elizabeth Shaw, '41, dawht'r of,
Mrs. .Flrred Shaw, of Sault Ste. Maric,
and the late Fred ". Show, and
George W. Weesner, '41E, son of
Mr. and Mrs. A. M. Weesner of Nash-.
ville, Tenn., were married at 4 p.m.
Thursday, in the League Chapel,.
Miss Shaw was a junior night edi-
tor of the Michigan Daily while a
University student. She was also a
member of the Varsity debate team,
Student Senate, WAA Board, and
Delta Sigma Rho.
Mr. Weesner. who is affiliated with
Alpha Kappa Lambda fraternity, was

Triangles, Vulcans, and Engine Coun-
cil.

The Women's
Point Of View
An Editorial.
An inland California camp now
houses several thousand Japanese
enemy aliens. It is hoped that, in a
few months, the entire coastal area
will be cleared of all aliens in order
to afford the maximum protection in
that vital California territory.
As a result of this action on the
West Coast, a cry is spreading
throughout the country that similar
camps be set up to clear other mili-
tary areas. Many would have every
enemy alien interned in order that
the United States be assured the ut-
most safety from internal treachery.
The people who are demanding
internment of aliens are interested
in a short-run period of safety but
they have failed to look beyond this
period.
Firstly, one of the most funda-
mental of our ideals is being violated
by the internment of naturalized
citizens. For the internment of Japs
to be at all effectiv, citizens natur-
alized before the Japanese Exclusion
Act of 1924 must be included on the
theory that in war, citizenship is no
dividing line to loyalties.
Secondly, by the internment of
aliens, we are passing up an oppor-
tunity to use aliens, loyal to the
United States. as unique agents for
propaganda and also for espionage
work in the Far East.
The most important consideration
is the post-war attitudes of these
aliens. All of them have been forced
to give up their homes and occupa-
tions for reasons that are hard to
understand. People who have been
loyal and hard-working all their lives
will find it difficult to understand
their imprisonment in concentration
camps-that is bluntly what these
camps essentially are-and will re-
sent the country which has treated
them thus. In the final analysis, we
will alienate thousands of people who
could be of great use to us in the
post-war era.
Then too, the job of organizing
the social and economic conditions
of the country after the war will be
made that much harder by the fact
that these interned aliens will have
to make a new place for themselves
and their families when they are
freed.
Be it assured. however, that the
government is keeping a vigilant
watch over all aliens throughout the
country. Numerous provisions have
been made restricting the alien in
every way. He must carry a registra-
tion card at all times, cannot have in
his possession a camera, short wave
set, firearms or explosives, cannot
leave his home after 9 p.m., nor can
he travel from his home area at any
time,
Attorney General Biddle feels the
necessity for quelling the war hys-
teria which has seized the public on
the enemy alien problem. He has
worked hard to break down job dis-
crimination. Undoubtedly, he has
realized the danger of hysteria di-
rected against the alien, but his view
has not penetrated throughout the
country.
Detroiters have bombarded Sena-
tor Prentiss M. Brown and Senator
Arthur Vandenberg with demands
that camps be established in Michi-

Sentior Society: A i' icc ting
will be held today from 4:00 p.m. to
gan in order that the vital area
around Ietroit be cleared. But Mich-
igan is not the only state, bay any

throughout the country.
This prevalent emotional reaction
is dangerous-it not only conflicts
with the fundamental precepts we
have been brought up to consider
necessary for a working democracy,
but it will have serious consequences
in the peace that follows this war.
