Recital Tonight 8 p.m. in the Auditorium VOLUME 30 CENTRAL MICHIGAN COLLEGE. MT. PLEASANT, MICH.. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 3, 1949 Check ihe Field Service Schedule NUMBER 35 'You Cant Take It with You' Is Smash Hit for Central by Tom Simpson A hit was scored Monday and Tuesday evenings with the production of Hart and Kaufman's "You Can't Take It With You," last of the summer Artist Course Series. A full house applauded for additional curtain calls both evenings, paying tribute to the artistry of Mr. Bush and his fine performers. This story of young love persisting throughout the trials brought about by a difference in social status as well as a difference in mode of living— and who can say the Sycamores were not "different?"— was skilfully handled by this group. The cast appeared particularly well-selected, for each of the actors fitted himself into his role as if it were tailor-made especially for him. * * * ALL IN ALL, this fine, hardworking group can feel proud of their accomplishment in the field of entertainment. Not only the players and Director Fred Bush, but the members of the production staff as well would have been pleased to overhear the various remarks of the audiences as they left the building. Those who participated in behind-the-scenes work helped to earn that applause. Flapping Goloshes and Painted Slickers Back Again? Wow! by Phyllis Thiel The Roaring Twenties are raging again! Campus cuties and their crew-cut beaus will grace college campuses this fall with all the paraphernalia of the bygone era. Raccoon coats. Number One Necessity of the Twenties, are again part of the "sharpy's" wardrobe. Can't you imagine your dreamboai sauntering down Franklin looking like a vertical bear rug? What could be more charming? Beware, fellows, your best gal may turn up with very shorn locks—in fact a shingled bob. Try to run your fingers caressingly through that! * * * THE NEW LOOK is being pushed into obscurity by a 1949 version of the flapper, complete with middies, slickers, chemise straps, and the flaming colors of that once fabulous era. But best of all, IT is in again. Remember Clara Bow—the IT girl of all times? IT, so fashion says, is undefinable; the elusive something in a smile, a manner, or a personality that sets one apart from ihe others. Hmm! Wonder if it comes in a bottle. Fashion dictators predict the Twenties Craze will sweep the nation. Who knows, it's happened before. By the way, how's your Charleston? Need of Resource Materials Is Shown The first Michigan History workshop at Central has shown that source material is needed here at the college. Dr. Rolland H. Maybee, head of the department of social sciences, says, "The workshop has great possibilities in the field of Michigan History. Experienced teachers can do research, write and prepare material if the research material is at hand." Some students have had to go far afield to find material; two went to Grand Rapids' public libraries, and two spent the week end at Ann Arbor working in the Michigan History collection. * * * BERNICE Butterfield has found some original manuscripts and a diary of the Case family, of Benzonia County. "She is writing stories for the elementary grades," says Dr. Maybee. Mr. Ferris E. Lewis, a visiting teacher and head of ihe department of social studies. Dearborn Juniior College, is assisting Dr. Maybee and helping ihe students in their original work. One student is writing a Children's history of Alpena; two others are collaborating on two units of Michigan history for fourth and fifth grades; and a Bay City student is writing on the lumbering business. Ten students are enrolled in this four-hour credit workshop. Biology and Conservation Camp to Be Repeated at Higgins Lake For the second time this summer the field Biology and Conservation Camp will be held at Higgins Lake. Four courses will be offered at this camp, which will last one week starting August 7 and ending August 13.

Each course offers one semester hour of residence credit, and no student may elect more than one course during ihe camp session. Prof. George R. Wheeler, head, agriculture department, will be in charge of the class in general conservation; while Prof, Irene F. Jorae, head, biology department, will teach the class in game bird ornithology. The other two classes will be taught by instructors from other colleges. COURSES OFFERED at the camp are comparable to classes here at Central.

Anspach to Attend College Conference President Charles L. Anspach will leave for Columbus, Ohio, on Thursday July 28, where he will spend Friday and Saturday working with the Committee of Standards of American Association of Colleges.

Anspach at the Faculty Tea for Graduates last week. WITH VOICES LIFTED . . . Central's Summer Choir and the cert, the campus resounded with When Mr. Bernard Stone conducted High School Choir in a joint con- music. Life Photo by Paul Stoweil XMC Is Different' Says Brazilian by Ruihea Kowalske Dr. Emmanuel de Castro, an exchange student from Rio De. Janeiro, Brazil, has spent a month in Michigan, and several weeks on Central's campus, studying the joint health program of Isabella County and Central Michigan College. Dr. de Castro, a pediatrician, is a student at Yale and will be awarded his master's degree in public health when he finishes this field trip. "We give medical and denial care io all children, and complete meals are given in some parts of the country," says Dr. de Castro. "Our system can fit into a democracy." In commenting on the differences between our two countries, he said that there isn't any discrimination among the races in Brazil, in fact his niece is married to a Negro. And a family, instead of owning an individual house and lot, can buy an apartment in a building of 50 apartments or more. * * * "A DOMESTIC may not know how to cook, but he knows the laws," says Dr. de Castro. "Americans do not pay much attention to the laws, just to the people who make them; it is quite different in Brazil." Nationalism is an unsavory thing and Dr. de Castro, who has a degree in political science, feels that it is contrary to ihe hopes for world peace. "To live for the world, and not die for your flag," says Dr. de Castro, "is education for peace." Rain Turns Lawn Party into Tea for 75 Graduates The graduates' lawn party became a tea at Keeler Ballroom when it rained last Tuesday afternoon. Miss Ima M. Chambers and the Faculty Social Committee quickly adjusted their program for an indoor party between 4 and 6 p.m. Each woman student was presented with a small corsage made by the decorations and flowers committee. Miss Barbara King, chairman. The men students were presented with boutonnieres. Dean D. Louise Sharp, Mrs. Charles L. Anspach, Mrs. Judson W. Foust, and Mrs. George Nel- soon, presided at the two tea tables. Punch and cookies were served to the guests. Miss Edna Heilbronn was chairman of the refreshment committee. "TO THEE We Sing," by Peter D. Tkach-, and "Comin' 'Round the Mountain," arranged by James A. Riddel, were sung by the summer chorus, directed by Mr. Bernard Stone. Shirley Bloch Morgan accompanied the chorus. Ireta LaSalle sang "Prelude" from Cycle of Life, by Landon Ronald, and "The Lovely Song, My Heart Is Singing," by Edmund Goulding. Mr. Bernard Stone played the accompaniment. The program was arranged by Mr. Lorentz T. Hansen and his committee. Dr. and Mrs. Walter S. Ryder acted as chairmen of the host and hostess committee. The invitation committee was headed by Miss Irene Jorae. About 75 persons attended the tea. * * * DR. DE CASTRO has been visiting Dr. Moore's clinic, and is impressed with the results that are achieved. Sex Education Topic of Panel Discussion Should sex be taught in the school room, and when? was the subject discussed by a panel at a joint meeting of Miss Grace Ryan's health education classes and the education workshop, at the Gymnasium last Tuesday morning. Dr. Emmanuel de Castro of Brazil; Dr. W. Berneta Block, Isabella County Health Department; Mrs. Opal Thorpe, supervisor of ihe Health Service; and Miss Thelma K. Marshall, Laboratory School supervisor, were ihe panel members. The purpose of sex education is to develop desirable attitudes in a generation of young people who understand the physical, psychological, and emotional aspects of sex. * * * WHEN THE panel discussed the possibility of a negative attitude by parents, Miss Marshall said, "Sex education ought to improve social relationships and moral attitudes." Dr. Block told of her experiences with Isabella County's new4 program for expectant mothers and fathers.
