sohn Theater.

Modern dance instruction and
practice offers a variety of ad-
vantages to everyone who parti-
cipates in it, according to Doctor
Juana de Laban who teaches dance
classes and clubs.
She stressed the fact, however,
that modern dance clubs are not
classes' in ballroom dancing nor
are they practice for would-be
chorus girls.
One of the basic functions of
modern dance instruction, is to
"make the person aware of the
significance of movement," states
Dr. Laban. This movement is im-
portant in many everyday occurr-
ances, such as interviewing for a
job or even walking down the

every movement increases poise,

FIRST AFFAIR of its kind to
be presented on campus, the com-
ing party promises, according to
committee members' reports, to
take a traditional place on the
University's social calendar.
During interviews with the
two honored guests several in-
teresting facts concerning their
past experiences were disclosed.
Miss Payraiser, a sophisticated
celebrity, rather large in stature,
was known as Jim Lobaugh before
she adopted herstage name. After
attending Kingstimber Prepara-
tory School in Runningbrook,
Mich. she received her A.B. at
Hopelessly Finishing School near
Boston, Mass.

Unique Party
Students will begin taking stock
of the interference of social life
with education and the status of
their favorite reading material in
preparation for the Marriage Lec-
ture party to be presented at 8
p.m. Friday at the Robert Owen
Co-op House.
A take-off on the marriage lec-
tures given at the University, the
party will feature dancing to the
music of well known dance band
maestros. * * *
MEMBERS OF Owen House will
also present a special broadcast
of their version of a marriage lec-
All couples attending the par-
ty will also have ample oppor-
tunity to take advantage of the
marriage counsellors who will
be available.
Specific forms for the gathering
of pertinent information for the
prediction of a successful or un-
successful marriage will also be
distributed to all party-goers.

THE PARTY is being given in
connection with the recent debate
on affiliated and independent
students on campus. It is designed
to provide an opportunity for
members of both sides of the is-
sue to become better acquainted
with each other. For this reason,
the party will be open to the en-
tire campus.
Last year, the members of
Owen house presented a Sadie
Hawkins party which featured
a take-off on the inferiority of
women on the campus.
According to Dave Davies, so-
cial chairman of the house, last
year's party was a tremendous
success both on the side of satire
and humor.

Mary Lou, a cosmopolitan de-I
butant, has travelled extensive-
ly. She toured Europe last sum-
mer, visiting such well known
spots as Venice, Upper Slobo-
via, the Riviera and Stromboli.
Travel and education have pro-
rmoted Miss Payraiser's linguistic
ability. In a cultivated tone, sur-
prisingly low in pitch, she speaks
French, German and Blasphemy

When not rehearsing for Un-
ion Opera, Mary Lou test runs
the "Geronimo" and other Cu-
pid's-Aid products.
Daisy Lou McCoy contrasts in
appearance and personality with
her co-guest of honor. She is small
in stature and has had few op-
portunities for social advancement.
REARED IN the hills of Ken-
tucky, Daisy Lou had ample time,
however, to become a self-educated
woman. With the aid of several en-
cyclopedias she has accumulated
and retained an almost unlimited
supply of factual knowledge.
Before her introduction to
show business Miss McCoy's
name was Diane Faulk.
Several parties have already
been given in honor of the two
debs. Last night they were guests
at the home of Mr. and Mrs. L. P.
Bell of Liberty Street and were
entertained Sunday afternoon by
Dr. and Mrs. Hayes T. Nip.
At the tea this afternoon floor-
show entertainment will be pre-
sented by members of the JGP
and Opera casts. Costumed mo-
dels will serve cookies, cakes and

cialites at their debut will be stu-
dents, administrators and mem-
bers of the faculty.

and interpretation of movement.

jects such as history, literature
and social studies.
