"Auspicious"; Explores Abstract Level By EDSEL FORD Eleanor King, professor of modern danop at the University, i^ dancing today instead of a.ctin;; because she learned at an f a r i v age that dancing is a form of more complete expression. One of America's foromo?t exponents of the modern dance, Mirn King has been associated with the University department of speech and dramatic arts this semester, and will be here two more years following a summer in Holland, where she will teach and dance under sponsorship o£ the Dutch Federation of Dance. "The setup with the Fine A r t s Center here is auspicious," Mi?.-, King said. She has taught in many schools over the country, but usually in physical education . departments. Therefore shn considered the U. of A. position a real challenge to her creativity. While she prefers working with a small group, so that she can give more help to individual perform-: ers. Miss King pointed out that the scarcity of dancers makes i t , difficult to stage group dances. : For example, the Orestes a n d : Elektra number in Miss King's student recital last week called for a chorus of 16 women.

Miss King feels that it is encouraging to note a widening in- I tercst in the modern dance in colleges and universities. "But it is unfortunate." she declared, "thai it inupt come only at the top of the educational pyramid, rather than being built from the foundation. The dance should bo a part of a child's daily experience, just as he should have painting, music, and so on. Then, when he comes to the university, he will be ready to do good, serious, advanced work." Lambasting the fact that most I students do most nothing physically except sit in cars and in class and push buttons, Miss King said that few of them ran move to do a thing freely, spontaneously, and fully. · 'A very year at Cnrleton College 1 n Minne- j sola.
