Nine Piece Band
To Play at Annual
Jimmy Dierick’s Group
From Corvallis Comes
For Soph Informal
•Jimmy Dierick’s popular 9-piece
[ orchestra has been chosen to play
lor the Sophomore Informal, to
be held Saturday night in McAr
thur court. This group, with head
quarters in Corvallis, has recently
become well known in Eugene.
They play regularly for tea dances
at the Hotel Benton there and
during the summer at Rockaway.
Dierick’s group of musicians play
all their own arrangements, some
of which are imitations of such
orchestras as Fio Rita’s, Lombar
co’s, Ray Nobles and others. One
member of the orchestra, George
Bruns is featured for his versatil
ity, playing seven instruments,
specializing on the two basses, fid
dle and horn. They also have fea
tured soloists, trios and quartets.
The committee in charge of se
lecting and arranging for the or
chestra consists of Ben Grout,
chairman, and Fred Hammond.
Previous returns from the ticket
sale being conducted in all men’s
living organizations indicate that
a record crowd will attend the in
formal, the only large all-campus
dance of winter term.
In carrying out the garden party
motif, Ed Morrow, working on the
decorations committee, has ar
ranged for a large realistic foun
tain and pool, equipped with large
quantities of running water. The
construction committee is prepar
ing to work long hours during the
next few days to get everything
shipshape. Those on this commit
tee, under the leadership of Louis
Rotenberg, are Jim Rummel, as
sistant chairman; Thornton Smith,
Bob Newlands, Morris Saffron.
Tickets for the dance are selling
in all men’s living organizations
at 50 cents a person. Any mem
ber of the class of 1937 who is in
good standing will be admitted
free of charge. Women possessing
fall term membership cards in the
sophomore class may use them for
admission, but all men must have

A messy adaptation of Tolstoi's
"Resurrection" is Reuben Mamoul
ian’s version of ‘‘We Live Again"
with the earthy Sten and dapper
As long as Sten is seen but not
heard and poses picturesquely on

when she begins to act and wrin

parts her studied mouth a toad
jumps out as the old tale hath it.
She arouses in us the same feeling
we experienced seeing our little
sister in her first play.
Mamoulian arranged the plot
poorly and used conceits of film
ing that antedated Clara Bow, for
instance: the graveyard scene, the
Russian court debauchery scene,
and, most antagonizing of all, the
use of a "chorus" to interpret the
play scene by scene.
La Sten is an amateur who has
fallen into the designing hands of
a producer who thinks he can make
another Dietrich out of her. She
has the beauty (until the camera
focuses in her mouth) but so far.
that is all. In the big emotion
scenes, her voice adopts an artifi

jerky and unnatural. She acts like
she is haggling over a pound of
March tries hard to redeem the
play but is fighting against too
great odds. For instance the Rus
sian court debauchery scene with
its biological aspect of love in slow
motion is enough to discourage a
second-rate actor. It was like
wading in a lake with a foot of
ooze on the bottom.
Typical of the whole layout was
the director’s method of letting
the audience know that the lovely
heroine was about to become a
mother. Says he, "I shall find the
counterpart in mother nature—
So Mamoulian shot a lovely tree of
fragrant apple blossoms, and then
showed it metamorphized into ripe
fruit. "Fine,” says he, “but we’d
better make sure they get the
point.” Forthwith, he shoots a fat
cow cudding pleasurably while a
calf partakes of its noon-day meal,
and then the glassy-eyed Sten.

II. GORDON & CO. have just THE thing for the
Sophomore GARDEN PARTY. SEE saw a CHICK new
electric blue informal, straight cut with metallic braid
trim carried out in collar and cuffs. The jacket when re
moved makes a striking formal (the collar still intact).
SUE went over the deep end when she saw a low cut
lipstick red formal. It was cut on a bias and a tiny belt
came around and crossed in back. A peplam jacket with
a shirred neckline made the dress complete. SUE liked
a dark blue novelty crepe with buttons down the front
and a novelty bow in back—just right for those afternoon
dates. You will notice the new fullness in the blouse of
the dress. Have you seen the new VALCUNA KNIT
SUITS? They are two piece and may be had in Copen
hagen blue, Raspberrie, Turquoise, and Lemon Yellow.
Best you look.
BURCH SHOE CO. is holding its BIG JANUARY

our own JEFF CONWAY received a very C’HERCE
turkey leg all wrapped up and everything for XMAS.
KELMAN (Sigma Nu) KEAGY is back on the eampi
again and we notice that he is wearing his pin again.
WATCH it DEARIES! If you noticed the CHI PSIS out
en masse the other night may I assure you that they had
ALL seen a fire engine before. Just one of the boys (Peter
Brooks, to be exact) decided it would be fun to turn in
the fire alarm in the house. We hear that two of the
GAMMA PHIS took two high school dates in preference
to two Oregon EDS. What about it. WALLY HOOD?
What OH has beemoe of JANE CHAPLER’S Pill DELT

THETA AGAIN. There seems to lie a private race going
on down at the ALPHA PHI house. Which track man
will win, SIIOEMAKE or PADDOCK? Surprises are al
