Frederic Franklin and Alex
ander Danilova Are Most Out
standing Members
An elaborate presentation of the
world renowned Ballet Kusse de
Monte Carlo was given at the Ra
leigh Memorial Auditorium on
Thursday evening, January 24 at
8 :30 p.m.
The maitre de ballet, Frederic
Franklin, and the “reigning aristo
crat of the entire dance world,” the
])remier ballerina Alexander Dani
lova, the most outstanding members
of the company, appeared in only
one of the three program numbers.
The first number. Ballet Imperial,
had no story. It was in classical
style, danced to Tsehaikowsky’s
Second Piano Concerto in G Major.
This was danced in groups which
typified the moods of Tschaikowsky s
music. The choreography was by
George Balanchine.
The second number of the pro
gram, Mozartiana, was danced to
the music of Tschaikowsky’s Suite
Wo. Ji, an orchestral arrangement
of Mozart’s piano pieces. Mile.
Alexandra Danilova and M. Fred
eric Franklin gave a brillianf per
formance in this number. The
choreography of this was also bj
George Balanchine.

New Representatives Become
Members of Hall Council
Representatives from each of the
halls at Saint Mary’s have recently
been elected to serve as members of
the Hall Council, along with the
presidents and vice-presidents of
each hall. The purpose of having
these representatives is to let the
younger girls have a part in the
regulation of the dormitory life of
the school. The representatives are
to offer suggestions or complaints to
the hall presidents and vico-j)resi-
dents, to help keep order on the
halls, to attend certain meetings of
the Hall Council, and to take charge
in the absence of the presidents and
The representatives from each of
the halls are as follows: Virginia
AV’oodley, first floor AVest AVing;
Helen Boyle, second floor AA'^est
AA^ing; Mary Rose Crisp, third floor
AA^est AA’^ing; Betty Clark, first floor

What We Yearn For
AVhat does every Saint Mary’s
girl yearn for besides men and “all
A’s”? That’s it! A Betty Grable
figure! ’Most every civilized girl
does. There are those who already
have this asset, but they are few and
far between. The majority of us
'^eitlier too fat or too things must
cither accept our lot, or plan an all-
out strategy and completely ignore
boxes from home, the Little Store,
and the Toddle House (Oh sob!).
Of course, g^^n, posture class, and
steps (my aching back!) keep one
moderately “skinny.” but there s
nothing that can take the place ot
good oid-fashioned dieting—with no
exceiitions. It’s not really so hard ;
just pin np a lot of Petty girls, and
don’t look at any magazine that
might, by the remotest chance, have
any pictures of food in them.
'fo be sure, there are “folks” who
actually are too thin and actually
want to get fatter, which-wish is
entirely beyond the mental capacity
of a mere sophomore. _ These fortu
nate souls eat anything, potato^,
cheese-burgers, sundaes, pecan pie,
but this is probably cruelly torturing
Saint Mary’s dieters.
It’s a common sight around school
at night between study-hall and
lights-out to see the halls strewn
with poor souls who are gasjiingly
attempting exercises “guaranteed if
they are done nightly” while the
thin gals stand around munching
fattening fodder and throwing en
couraging remarks at the sufferers,
and the ones who did the exercises
the night before weakly rub lini
ment on themselves.
As the exercise schedule proceeds,
the exercises get more involved, and
the poor hopefuls get blacker and
bluer, and stiffer and stiffer; but
usually the results are really good.
Of course, one might have to go to
a rest home for several weeks, but
isn’t it worth it ?
This has been just a bit of en
couragement to those members of
the student body who make the
scales sag just a little bit. For a
slight fee, information will be given
as to reviving oneself, where one
can find a good strong horse-lini
ment, and also how to untie oneself
after the exercise session is over.
