job" in that capacity.
To Work with Students
"Mr. Hall's work," Dr. Gale said,

students themselves, such as round-
table discussions and recreation and
sports programs."
Recreational
Clubs Formed
A number of recreational clubs
have recently been formed at the
International Center for foreign stu-
dents on campus and their American
friends.
With the exception of the camera
club, the organizations are now dir-
ected by staff supervisors. Within a
short time, however, they will elect
their officers and will be purely stu-
dent organizations.
The camera club has already got-
ten started with a program of round-
table discussions, "picture-of-the-
week" contests, courses for begin-
ners, lectures and out-door practice.
Officers for the club are Carlos Plaza,

music club is headed by Harriet Por-
ter.
The hikes club is directed by Ship-
ley Crawford, and Lili Rabel is in
charge of the bridge club, which will
give tournament instructions to be-

from Syracuse" there will be a very
legitimate reason, for the costumes
will be the same.
Elaborate Costumes Worn
Local audiences will probably be
impressed with the unusual and elab-
orate costumes worn by the actors
in the campus production of Shake-
speare's farcical comedy. Well, it all
cane about in this manner: a rumor'
reached the ears of the producers
that the original costumes of the
recent New York hit "The Boys from
Syracuse" were available and so-a
phone call, a bit of persuasion, and
the complete outfits are due to arrive
in Ann Arbor this week.
"The Boys from Syracuse" was the
gay musical take-off on "The Com-
edy of Errors" which brought Eddie
Albert to the front ranks of enter-
tainers. The costumes were created
in the Roman and Greek motif rather
than the older and more conven-
tional Elizabethan period which has
long become associated with Shake-
spearean productions.
Twins Cause Dilemma
"The Comedy of Errors" is a
drama centered around the confu-
sion caused by two sets of twins. And
to top it off, romantic complications
set in to deepen the confusion for the
twins, Antipholus of Syracuse and
Antipholus of Ephesus, and their
twin servants, the two Dromios.
Opens Wednesday
Opening Wednesday at 8:30 p.m. in
the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre "The
Comedy of Errors" will run for five
performances, closing with a matinee
and evening performance Saturday,
Feb. 12. Tickets for all performances
will be placed on sale Monday morn-
ing at the box office, Lydia Mendels-
sohn Theatre.

Barret To Give
French Lecture
North African Culture,
Art To Be Discussed
Maurice Barret, special lecturer in
the ASTP program, will discuss art
and culture in North Africa at 8 p.m.
today in the Rackham Amphitheatre.
Barret said yesterday that the lec-
ture will be largely the description
of a trip he took to North Africa in
1937. The speech will be supple-
mented with records of African mu-
sic and lantern slides on North Africa.
"This trip," Barret said, "was prob-
ably the most amazing experience its
my life. I was the guest of the Pasha
of Marrakech for eight days and had
an opportunity to see many things
that the tourist would not be able to
see."
He said he would try to emphasize
in the lecture, "the fact that North
Africa is not a wild country, but the
best example in the world of the
last vestiges of an harmonious life,
still not spoiled by modern civiliza-
tion."
Barret left France in 1940 with a
government permit to come to the
United States.
Hillel Foundation

troit Roundtable of Christians and
