Assembly Candidates
To Be Elected Monday.

JGP To Present 'Petticoat P1atoon



Candidates for Assembly Asso-
ciation president, to be elected at
the Assembly Dormitory Council
meeting Monday, are Joan Co-
miano, '61, and Connie Kreger, '60.
The president serves as presi-
dent of Assembly executive board
and ADC and member of Women's
S e n a t e, Student Government
Council and, subject to approval
by the Regents, the Board of Gov-
ernors of Residence Halls.
Both students are now mem-
bers of Assembly executive board,
Miss Kreger holding the position
of secretary and Miss Comiano
acting in the capacity of second
Continue Work With Panhel
Each candidate expressed a de-
sire to continue and expand the
close working relationship which
has developed between Assembly
and Panhellenic Association, par-
ticularly because Qf the problemsi
that arise in the implementation
of spring rush.
Closer cooperation should be
encouraged, Miss Kreger said, to
"better orient the freshman wo-
man to the University as a whole."
"Greater coordination," she ex-
plained, "would help the fresh-

.. second vice-president

man and transfer learn more
about each group and make a
freer, more rational choice as to
remaining independent or becom-
ing affiliated."
Advocates Speaking Program
Among Miss Comiano's plans to
foster a closer relationship is a
program in which the presidents
of Assembly and Panhellenic
would speak to the freshmen, ex-
plaining each group's goals and
Clarification of the sorority
honor code and a definition of
the areas in which affiliated and
independent groups would come
in contact with freshmen in the
semester before rushing are also
in her plans.
The Assembly big sister pro-
gram needs evaluation and ex-
pansion, she said, to make it more
effective as the only program to
aid freshmen in adjustment to
the University in their initial se-
mester on campus.
Sees Educational Responsibility
Miss Kreger's other plans, if
elected president, center on the
"educational responsibilities of
residence halls."
Her platform includes the ex-
pansion of dormitory library fa-
cilities and the development of a
Faculty Guest program
She would also continue evalu-
ation aimed at expanding cooper-
ative housing and analyzing the
philosophy and desirability of
upperclass housing.
Wants More Contact
Miss Comiano advocates more
"individual contact between exec-
utive board members and the di-
rectors and women in the resi-
dence halls." She would also in-.
stitute an informational and edu-
cational program for corridor
Expansion of the Associate
Member program and the inclu-
sion of women living in apart-
ments are on her list of possible
"Establishment of a housing
philosophy to satisfy the needs
and desires, of the varied indi-
viduals within the total group of
independent women" is one of
Miss Comiano's main objectives,
she said.

House lights dimmed and the
curtain went up on a stage full of
girls who laughed and sang while

labeled FLOUR, did an energetic
It was the final rehearsal of the
Junior Girls' Play, which opens to-
night at the Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre with a performance for
senior women, and will continue
through Saturday.
"Rehearsals have really been
going well, now that we are in
the auditorium," Karol Buckner,
'60, director of the show, said.
She explained that there had
been some of the "usual trials and
tribulations" involved in getting
the sets put up and the costumes
ready, but that "everyone is really
gung-ho now."
Costume Problems
One of the girls on stage held
up a piece' of material. "Does this
look like all the same color,
Karol?" she shouted. "Yes," Miss
Buckner replied, and continued,
"This should be the greatest JGP
ever. We have a fine group of
The Junior Girls' Play, she
added, is entirely original; in fact
the "only original show on cam-
pus." Entirely written by three
junior girls, "Petticoat Platoon"
is set in a WAC barracks, just aft-
er the arrival of six new recruits.'

SNAP IT UP -- Girls of the junior class run through a produc-
tion number for "Petticoat Platoon," the JGP satire on life in a
WAC barracks, to be presented to the senior class tonight, as
the crew of advisors and directors look on and offer suggestions.

The plot involves the complica-
tions which set in when the girls
discover that a talent scout from
Hollywood is somewhere in the
camp, looking for someone to star
in a movie about the WAC's.
Has Production Numbers
These complications, Miss
Buckner said, give them the op-
portunity for "a couple of really
big production numbers," includ-
ing a strip act. "We had a couple
of funny incidents with that one,"
she added thoughtfully.
Two dachshunds, carefully la-
beled Sigma Nu, galloped across
the front of the auditorium, bark-
ing. "They're in the play, too," she
said, "in the last act."
"This JGP is more of a produc-
tion than others have been," she
continued. "We have an orches-
tra which they haven't had for a
while." She paused to give some
last minute instructions to the
lighting chief, another junior girl.
