"TUXES AND TAILS are strict-
ly taboo" said Rae Kelly, chair-
man of this year's 'off to the
woods' dance. "Blue jeans, loud
plaid shirts, levis and sloppy joe
sweaters will be the height of fash-
ion and anything else which will
add to the comfort of the dancers."
To add that authentic touch
couples. will be dwarfed by huge
images of Paul Bunyan; the le-
gendary logger and Babe, his big
blue ox.
Refreshments will be served over
a rough, pine slab bar, made in
true Paul Bunyan dimensions,
which is reputed to be Ann Ar-
bor's longest. Bob Wismer, re-
freshment chairman, who will act
as head barkeeper, assures every-
one that there will be ample food
TICKETS FOR the Paul Bun-
yan "Formal" are on sale now in

cluded with each ticket is the

Others working on the dance
committee are Ray Sarles, vice-
chairman, Dick McArdle, publicity,

Mrs. Agruss shared in a four-

gional tournaments.

From "Our Town" to "Macbeth"
is the often heard password in the
speech department where aspiring
actorsand actresses may be heard
preparing for what they hope will
prove to be promising careers in
the field of theatrics.
According to Prof. V. B. Windt,
of the speech department, many
students leave the University each
year, fully trained in their field,
but with years of practice ahead
of them before they finally are rec-
ognized and reached their aspired

Broadway Aspirants Prepare for Careers

AMONG THE alumni who have
reached this ultimate goal of hard
working students may be found
names such as Martha Scott, Ruth
Hussey, and the recent visitor to
Ann Arbor, Robert Q. Lewis.
After completing four years of
study here, Miss Scott spent a
number of years working in
stock and radio before her break
for recognition came.
This was her appearance on
Broadway in "Our Town." At pres-
ent, she is preparing for an origin
nal play to be presented early next
** *
WHILE NOT a graduate of the
University, Ruth Hussey, never-
theless, did some studying here
while working on her master's de-
gree. She has just finished a suc-
cessful run in the hit play "Good-
bye My Fancy."
Appearing in last Friday's
Varsity Night, Robert Q. Lewis
paid a return visit to his old
alma mater. Before reaching
acclaim as a radio comedian, he
was forced to add the "Q" to his
name by a law of Equity which
forbids any two actors from hav-
ing the same name.
This stems from the confusion
that would no doubt arise from a

profession keeping them constant-
ly in the limelight.
* * *
Ann Arbor even occasionally reach
the shores of a far flung land, as
may be proven by Frank Maxwell,
currently appearing as the young
son in the London company of
"Death of a Salesman."
Known as Charles Maxwell in
his student days, he, too was
forced to change his name by
Equity's law.
With the coming of television,
another University graduate was
given her claim to fame. Patricia
Meikle has been currently con-
ducting a children's program for
Dumont over the TV waves.
vision director for National Broad-
casting Company in New York,
Charles Harrell may befound bus-
ily dreaming up new and unique
programs to amuse listeners,
young and old alike.
All in all, the speech majors lot
is a hard one, but whenever the
blues strike, one look at this im-
posing list of headliners serves to
give encouragement and inspira-
tion to future Barrymores and
Berenhardts alike.
