By SHIRLEY 1ASKEY
Take an interesting background,
flavor well with wit, add a dash of
charm, sprinkle with a bit .of the
sublime and the ridiculous, and the
resulting personality will be that of,
Ilka Chase, who will be presented by
the Oratorical' Association Dec. 7 at
While the title of Miss Chase's lec-
ture is "The Psychology of Being a
Woman," it is likely to touch upon
anything of interest to modern wo-
men. Her talks are as informal as
her radio show, and as spontaneous
as though she were gossiping with a
friend on the telephone.
Included in the lecture will be com-
mentaries on styles, celebrities, hu-
man foibles, the secrets of charm-pr
anything else that might happen :to
"pop" into her head at the moment,
all presented in the distinctive Ilka
The radio, the stage, and the screen,
each claim her as a member of their
folds. Every Saturday noon she taltes

Committee To Meet Tomorrow
in League To Give Acts, Dances
The central committee of the Jun-
ior Project is taking no chances that
this year's JGP loses any of the
glamour of those of the past, for the
skit committee will meet at 5 p.m. to-
morrow in the League under the di-
rection of Rae Larsen, '44Ed.
Dancing choruses, comedies, and
songs will be practiced the same as
in years before, for the junior women
plan to have two or three skits at a
time ready to be given at dances and
parties in Ann Arbor. The skit com-
mittee will become a bureau from
which a variety of entertainers may
be engaged by any campus or city
"We need a number of dancers,
singers, actresses, musicians, and skit
writers. As the dances and songs will
be mostly chorus work average ability
is sufficient although we will welcome
soloists as well," Miss Larsen stated.
No remuneration will be asked for
the entertainment, but the commit-
tee hopes that the skits will help to
increase the stamp and bond sales in
Ann Arbor. It is still possible to enter
the skit and song contest which was
announced two weeks ago, and in
which the winner will be presented
with a dollar defense stamp and a
chance to hear his or her skit over
over as hostesson a radio luncheon
program, for which she writes the
script, selects the guests, and con-
ducts the program. Miss Chase has
spent many seasons working in Holly-
wood, and is being seen throughout
the country in "Now Voyager" at the
Stage Is "True Love"
However, her "one true love" is the
stage, where she can feel an actual
ccntact with her audience. She is,
perhaps, best remembered for her role
of catty Sylvia Fowler in Clare
Boothe's "The Women." In recent
years,,practically. every sophisticated
comedy on Broadway has included
the presence of Ilka Chase.
Born into the fashion world, as
the daughter of Edna Woolman
Chase, Miss Chase has left her mark
in this realm as -a fashion commen-
.Included in Miss Chase's "extra-
curricular activities," are singing les-
sons, the management of a household,
and politics; she is a charter mem-
ber of the American Theatre Wing's
Allied Relief Fund. In her "spare"
moments, she wrote the current best-
seller, "Past Imperfect," which she
calls a "kind of biography."
Recently, a friend commented on
the book by saying, "I enjoyed your
book, Ilka; who wrote it for you?"
Miss.Chase rep) ed, "I'm glad you en-
joyed it-who read it to you?"
