Fourth Dance
To BeToday
Mixers And Grand March
To Be Features Of Day
Mixer dances will be predominate-
ly featured at the fourth of the Wed-
nesday afternoon tea dances to be
held at the League from 3:30 p.m.
to 5:30 p.m. today, Miss Barbara
MacIntyre, assistant social director
of the League, announced.
The purpose of the mixers is to
permit summer school students to
more easily become acquainted with
each other. In addition, there will
be a grand march which will form
at 4 p.m., Miss Maclntyre said. The
march will be a short one to allow
as much time for dancing as pos-
Earl Stevens and his ochestra, who
play for the usual Friday and Satur-
day night dances, will furnish the
music for the dance. No admission
will be charged.
The Summer Session social office
would like to stress that one need
dance only once with one person, and
to so conduct oneself is not a breach
of etiquette if the man returns his
partner to the edge of the floor or to
the hostess group before excusing
Ruth Streelman, '40Ed, who has
charge of the tea dance, has an-
nounced the hostesses selected by the
League Council. They are Ruth

bard, Lila Foster, Bettylou Robin-

By ... The

Two B's...

This week the Majestic Theatre
offers a double feature attraction of
a comedy and a drama, "French
Without Tears" and "The Biscuit
Eater." The first of these was as
much a disappointment to us as the
last was a satisfaction.
"The Biscuit Eater," starring Billy
Lee as Lonnie and a host of thorough-
bred hunting dogs, make up a picture
worthy of tribute f rom both young
and old. The picture based on a
story by James Street, revolves around
a southern plantation in Albany, Ga.
which has just recently passed into
new ownership. Lonnie and his pick-
ininie pall Text, the Bible boy, are
given the runt in a litter of thor-
oughbreds and try to train him for
the field.
Lonnie Defends 'Promise'
In spite of ardent protests from
his father, Lonnie continues to work
with "Promise," as the dog is called,
convinced that he will turn into a
good hunter. "Promise" is ordered
off the plantation after being caught
in the chicken coop and then and
there is dubbed "Biscuit Eater." Lon-
nie and Text search the country side
for him, find him and return home
where they are immediately informed
that the dog must remain out of sight
of the plantation, forever.
In desperation, Lonnie enters
"Promise" in the field trails in order
to prove to everyone that he is cap-
able of ranking with the best and
to rid him of the nickname "Biscuit

Eater." "Promise" outpoints and
outclasses his competitor in the finals
but the latter wins when "Promise"
breaks his stance. The story dnds
in bitter disappointment for Lonnie
but with a renewal of his father's
faith in the runt dog.
Dogs Are Good Actors
It is a heartrending, emotional,
human interest story, displaying mag-
nificent dogs with flawless training.
The settings are impressive. The
photography is superb in that it
brings out- the fine qualities and
characteristics of a good hunter.
Strange as it may seem, the dogs are
excellent actors. They are almost
conscious of the part they are playing
in the story. We are convinced that
dogs do have hearts and big ones at
that. All in all, this picture proves
the old saying, "And knowing man's
need of a friend, God gave him a
dog." We recommend it-it's good!
The second picture on the double
bill "French Without Tears" with
Ray Milland as Alan, Ellen Drew as
Diana and Janine Darcey as Jacque-
line, was somewhat of a disappoint-
ment after its great stage success. We
enjoyed seeing Ray Milland in this
flippant, carefree role.
