"It seems like fairy land to re-
turn to Ann Arbor after a year's
absence, and see the remarkable
transformation that has taken
place from a barren, desolate plot
of land," said Miss Katharine Il-
.genfritz, '92, as she sat amid the
lovely surroundings of the garden
In the Women's League building on
the occasion of the faculty-student
tea yesterday afternoon.
The shrubbery surrounding the!
League building was given last year1
to the organization as a gift of Miss
Ilgenfritz by the Monroe Nursery-
I. E. Ilgenfritz Sons Co., founded in
1874. The landscape being the worky
of Ray Bassett of Monroe
"I can scarcely believe that so
much has been accomplished in a
single year. It is a source of great
satisfaction to me, and forms a
beautiful background for teas and
social functions for the women of
the University. As the University is
growing yearly in every respect, so
will these trees continue to flourish
and bring a sense of beauty and
happiness to those who can enjoy
them," she concluded.
Youthful Repertory
Actress Discourses
on Stage Experience
Roberta Byrum, who plays lit-
tle four-year-old Mary, daughter
of Ruth and Robert Mayo in Play
Production's current offering of
O'Neill's farm-darma, "Beyond the
Horizon", sat on the arm. of a
chair, giggled infectiously for us,
and munched gum drops.
We ventured a question -about
games. "I don't like hop-scotch
no more because I don't like to
hop," announced Roberta with de-
'cision. On the other hand "Pris-
oners' Goal" appeared to be her
favorite pastime, for Roberta likes i
to run. She also likes "Bluebird
In and Out of the Window," or
"Johnny I'm Tired".
Acting is not Roberta's sole ac-
complishment. She does trapeze
work and acrobatic dancing, pre-
fers producing little home plays
(in which she acts and designs the
costumes) to playing house, and
also goes to summer school.
As for "Beyond the Horizon",
Roberta does not care for the play
because there is so much fighting
in it, which illustrates how real
the acting of the other players may
appear to a very little girl.
There was more to learn about
Roberta, but after all, reporters
and interviewers pale before the
greater importance of gum-drops
which have a tendency to spill on
the carpet or costumes which one
is designing for a forthcoming
home production.
