SurveyCourse
Intensive Two-Week
Study Will Integrate
Creative Dance Work
A comprehensive survey of Mo-
dern Dance is being offered this
week and next by the Women's
Physical Education Department.
The course, which meets from 1
to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday,
is being taught by Dr. Juana de
Laban of the University, Margaret
H'Doubler of the University of
Wisconsin and Ruth Murray of
Wayne University.
Mis H'Doubler is in town this
week to give instruction, while
Miss Murray will be here next
week. Both are well.known in the
field of creative dance.
The course is designed to offer a
comprehensive survey of the Mc-
dern Dance as inter-related with
the Music and Dramatic Depart-
ments of public schools and col-
leges.
It includes material on chore-
ography and staging and a com-
parison will be made of the philo-
sophy and contribution of differ-
ent dance exponents.
Dr. Laban is offering work in
intermediate and advanced dance
techniques and inprovisation.
Miss H'Doubler is showing the
implications of kinesiology and
physical laws to dance and rhy-
thmic structure, while Miss Mur-
ray will present a survey of the
rhythmic elements essential to
dance teaching, and a course in
choreography.
The intensive course, which of-
fers two semester hours of credit,
it part of a six-week Practicum in
Physical Education.

Women interested in gaining
fluency in a foreign language need
not envy their friends who are
traveling in distant lands because
they have an opportunity to live
in a house on campus where that
language alone is spoken.
Coeds living and boarding in
these houses range from majors in
the field to freshmen who have
just begun study of the tongue and
foreign students with hazy memor-
ies for neighboring languages.
DEUTCHES HAUS, the German
House, located at 1101 Church St.,
is managed by Mrs. B. P. Bagrow.
It is the orply language house un-
der the direct auspices of the Uni-
versity this summer.
Mrs. Bagrow said that she be-
lieves her German house, which
she opened last summer, is the
first of its kind on campus.
The language house plan was
Swint Classes
Are StillOpen
Are you afraid of bathtubs?
This is not a treatise on why you
should bathe often. It is an an-
nouncement by the Women's Phy-
sical Education Department that
classes in beginning swimming are
still open to women who wear
bathing suits just to get a tan.
Coeds who are afraid of the
water need have no qualms about
the "Barbour Bathtub" as the wo-
men's swimming pool is affection-
ately called. If they doubt that the
pool lives up to its name, they may
look for themselves.
Dr. Laurie E. Campbell, Acting
Chairman of the Department,
stressed the importance of being
able to swim. She emphasized that
women who do not know how to
swim should stay out of canoes and
.ther boats.
Swimming accidents are so un-
necessary, she said, when anyone
can learn to swim well in eight
weeks.
Women interested in enrolling
in the classes may sign up in Of-
fice 15, Barbour Gymnasium, from
8 a.m. to noon and from 1 to 4:30
p.m. today and tomorrow and from
8 a.m. to noon Saturday.

LINGUISTIC DIRECTOR for
the house is Mrs. Edith E. Nagel,
appointed by Associate Dean of
Women Mary C. Bromage. The
linguistic director must be able to
speak German fluently.
Three undergraduate and two
graduate students are now liv.
ing in the house. Mrs. Bagrow
said that there is room for one
more woman. Anyone interested
may call the Office of the Dean
of Women.
German is spoken at all times.
The residents are so conscientious,
Mrs. Bagrow declared, that there
is no need to impose fines for slip-
ping up and speaking English.
ACTIVITIES INCLUDE weekly
Wednesday evening open houses
for all students interested in con-
versing in German and special
guest dinners for members of the
German faculty.
Mrs. Bagrow, who has lived in
Germany, even serves German
dishes sometimes.
The house was very successful
last year and residents went on
picnics and an overnight hike to-
gether.

are living at the house. The groups
eat in separate rooms, where they
may converse in the language of
their choice.

OTHER INTERESTED students
may arrange to eat their meals at
the house.
Mrs. Elliott said that she is very
anxious for the French and Span-
ish house to succeed. Last year
there were separate houses for
each language. The year before,
one house for the two languages
was operatedrby Mrs. Elliott.

peasant blouses and print dirndl skirts which are perennial sum-
mer favorites. For coolness and sheer practicality, the ensembles
hold an important position in any coed's wardrobe.

BECAUSE OF the small number
of applicants for a French or

Mrs. Pauline Elliott did open,
