Panhellenic flssociation To Bring
Danny Kaye to Hill Auditorium



"Danny Kaye and His All Star
Comedy Revue" is being brought
to Hill Auditorium by the Pan-
hellenic Association for two unique
shows, especially prepared for this
appearance, on the night of Oct.
18. .
"This is the most terrific thing
that Panhel has done since they
brought Spike Jones to Ann Arbor
in 1946," according to Jean Russ,
publicity manager. r
DANNY KAYE will be featured
with Skitch Henderson and his or-
chestra, the Page Cavanaugh Trio
and the Dorothy Derben Dancers
from Chez Paree in Chicago.
Benefits from the two shows
will be donated to the Fresh Air
The comedian, a lanky blue-eyed
redhead from Brooklyn, with a
face as plastic as wet clay, was
unknown except for the New York
theatre, little more than a few
years ago. He was ushered to the
screen by Samuel Goldwyn as a
full-fledged star and is hailed to-
day as the truly great comedy
discovery of the time.
ALTHOUGH KAYE's films, the
most recent of which have been.
"The Secret Life of Walter Mitty"
and "A Song Is Born" have been
hits, and he was the biggest en-
tertainment excitement London
has ever seen, thegroad to success
was hard and long.
'His professional career start-
ed in the summer camps of the
Catskill Mountains, in plays and
musicals and clowning to amuse
the.customers. Eventually with
* Dave Harvey and Kathleen
Young, dancers, he joined a
tabloid musical show for a tour
of the Orient.
Back in New York, he got a
job as a comedian in the night
club act of Nick Long, Jr. Then
followed another foreign inter-
lude in London and then back to
Broadway for a role in "The Straw
Hat Review," which lasted only
ten weeks.
DURING this period he married

Sylvia Fine, one of the review's
writers and producers. She still,
writes most of his specialty ma-
terial for both radio and screen.
His night club job at La Mar-
tinique brought him to the at-
tention of Moss Hart, who was
then looking for a comedy lead
for his "Lady In The Dark."
From there he went into the
starring role in "Let's Face It,"
the Cole Porter musical comedy.
Hollywood beckoned and Danny
signed with Samuel Goldwyn.
Three pictures, "Up in Arms,"
"Wonder Man" and "The Kid from
Brooklyn," established him as a
great screen comedian.
Mitty" and "A Song is Born" fol-
lowed and in 1948, the star's per-
formance at the Palladium in Lon-
don made him the idol of Eng-
land. He returned in November
as star of the Command Perform-
ance before the King and Queen.
Kaye is currently under con-
tract to Warner Brothers. He
does not drink and smokes
little. He is six feet tall and
weighs 160 pounds.
Mail orders for tickets for the

two Ann Arbor shows may be
made immediately from 10 a.m.
to 5 p.m. at the Hill Auditorium
box office. Seats will be sold in
blocks to groups who order their
tickets early.

Imagination, Bright Materials
Transform Colorless Rooms


(Continued from Page 4)

A few dollars, a needle and
thread, and a little imagination
can transform a bleak cubicle in a
dormitory into a room which is a
joy to return to after a gruelling
day of classes.
The basic articles around which
the attractiveness of any dorm
room is centered are its drapes
and bedspread. They supply the
room's. color and set its mood.
Most rooms seem to reflect the
personality of its occupant(s),
whether it be a rah-rah version
with pennants and dance bids
adorning its walls, or the feminine
type decorated with frills and
popular and practical as ever this
year as the coeds' choice for their
drapes and spreads. Heavy cottons
are being used, as well as the
lighter, brighter cottons like
chintz. Paper and plastic drapes
are also popular and economical
selections this semester. Large
monograms are available which
can be sewn onto bedspreads. The
addition of the large initials' can
do much to liven a plain looking
Almost as fundamental to
Michigan dorms as drapes and
spreads is the familiar bulletin
board. School emblems, snap-
shots, mementos, reminders and
an unpredictable array of mis-
cellany may be found dangling
from them. The boards are of-
ten trimmed with material
matching or contrasting with
the curtains.
Bulletin boards provide an in-
expensive way to add sparkle to
any room as well as an oppor-
tunity to demonstrate a knowledge
of the principles of formal or-
ganization gleaned from last se-
mester's Fine Arts course.

BITS OF FABRIC, large and
small, can be used in many ways
to make a room more attractive
and "homey." Lamp shades, knick
knack shelves and waste baskets
may be brightened with borders of
left-over material. A length of
extra fabric hemmed all around
makes a colorful dresser scarf.
Still larger dimensioned material
may be most advantageously used
to cover a tired looking chair.
A few cleverly placed pillows
can do wonders toward creating
an atmosphere of comfort in a
room. Ready-made cushions are
on sale at most department
stores. If the selection is not
pleasing,' making pillows by hand
or machine is a simple job. Un-
covered pillow forms in various
shapes may be purchased and
easily covered with the material.
Another item which brings cheer
to a dorm room and the people in
it, is a plant. Local florists and
dimestores have all sorts of thriv-
ing botanical specimens for sale.
Also offered are gay flower pots
and vases in all colors, sizes and

SPACE is not only scarce where
roommates are concerned,-but
their book collections face the
same crowded conditions. A few
enterprising coeds have solved the
problem inexpensively and crea-
tively. Using an orange crate, or
similar sized box, the innovators
have added paints, ruffles, strips
of material and other adornments.
The result is a new, attractive
and very useful piece of furniture
for their rooms.
Further suggestions for making
living quarters more livable and
likable include adding bright-hued
(preferably washable) throw rugs,
pictures and lamps to an unin-
teresting looking room.

To Photograph
Senior Coeds
Senior women who have yearned
to be photographed by a Fifth
Avenue photographer will have
that opportunity when they have
their pictures taken next week for
this year's edition of the Ensian.
In spite of their Fifth Avenue
background, the Ensian photog-
raphers will not be striving for
"glamour" shots, however. In-
stead, they will try to make the
photographs natural and clear,
with more contrast than in past
Even though coeds may think
that this is their chance "to go all
out" in their efforts to look their
best, they will probably obtain the
best results if they dress simply,
but attractively, according to
Jeanne Johnson, managing editor
of the Ensian. Although white
blouses are frowned upon by some
photographers, Miss Johnson be-
lieves that they will be very suit-
able for this year's pictures, since
a medium, rather than a light
background will be used.
* * *
SUITS AND plain sweaters are
also appropriae, according to
Miss Johnson. Just as it is best to
avoid black lace and similar frills,
it is advisable not to try to look
"collegiate," she added.
In an effort to achieve nat-
uralness and clearness, the pho-
tographers will not give their
pictures obvious glamour treat-
ment, such as painting in long,
artificial-looking eye-lashes.
Special make-up is unnecessary,
according to Miss Johnson.
"Just wear the make-up that
you usually wear,abut be sure to
wear some," she advised.
In order that they may avoid
being flustered by having their
pictures taken at inconvenient
times, Miss Johnson urged seniors
to make their appointments as
soon a possible this week.

ings will be held at 7:30 p.m.
