Joys And Sorrows, Dreams And Hopes
Of Life Of lIumnans To Be
Enacted .Lantern Night
A Jester, representing Life, closely
1 y followed by a group of Bells, his com-
panions and followers, will be the first
actor to occupy the stage in the danc-
ing pageant, to be given by the fresh-
man women for their part of Lantern
The theme of the play, suggested by
Miss Janet Cummings of the physical
'n education department, has been taken
from the translation of the "Life of
Michael Angelo," by Romaine Rol-
land, and has been adapted by Miss
Pauline Hodgson and the dance com-
C mittee to suit the abilities and re-
sources of the freshman women, many
of whom have had no previous ex-
perience in this sort of work.
The Jester and the Bells dance mer-
rily until they are interrupted by a
maiden and two of her friends who are
playing nearby, and who all uncon-
aciously enter into the dance of Life.
«.=4 Immediately following their entrance,
the Jester and his attendants move
away, leaving them' to their carefree
fun, but Life soon decides that they
should know the cares as well as the
joys of the world and its people. In-
" terrupting the dance, he proceeds to
show them the concomitants of every
Life's Dreams and Hopes are the
first of these factors to enter the
dance, followed by Beauty. The joy-
ful and youthful portions of Life soon

taken by Sorrow and Grief. Toil, that

A troupe of Courages come on the
scene unobserved by those already
there much in the same manner as the
Doubts, until there is a great enough
number of them to overpower the

next week, from 4 to 6 o'clock, in

Curwood Praises
Work Of Author
of Junior Play
Margaret Lord, '27, author of the
'Junior Girls' play "Becky Behave,"
which has been running at the Whit-
ney theater for the bast week, re-
ceived a letter from James Oliver Cur-
wood, the well known author, con-
gratulating her upon the play. The
letter reads as follows:
"I cannot begin to tell you how
much pleasure it has given me to wit-
ness your success as an author, and
I only hope that you will continue to
go on with creative kind of work that
you have so promisingly begun. I do
not like the word 'genius' or I would
say that you possess it to a marked
degree. I prefer four other words, in
its place. Hard work, determination,
and courage, and if you have these I
predict a future for you of which ;ou
and all of your friends will be justly
proud. That a girl of your age and
lack of experience should throughherI
'own efforts alone achieve a work of
such admirable proportions as "Becky
Behave," it is to me a most amazing
proof of very great ability.
If I can help you in any way in any
future literary work which you may
undertake, I should be most happy to
do so. With all good wishes I am,
most sincerely,
'James Oliver Curwood."

Miss Amy Loomis, '23, who has di-
rected the Junior Girls' play for the
past two years and who is well known
E through her dramatic achievements ii

hers of club leaders at their meeting

At the last meeting, the representa-
tives of the various organizations of

Capt J B Noel, the ofca photographer of the Mount Everest
Expedition, with the official and excliusive still and motion pictures of
the last attempt to climb rhe highest mountain in the world, is to ap-
pear here i the near future.
Captain Noel caught the last photographs of the ill-fated Mallory
and Irvine as they disappeared in the clouds at 28,300 feet-never to
return. His story is extremely vivid and dramatic, and his pictures
have been the sensation of London, Paris and Berlin the past year.
His talk is entitled "On the Roof of the World" and visualizes not
only the attempts to scale the dizzy Everest peak, but also presents a
fascinating picture of people, life and habits in the quaint and mys.
terious land of Tibet.
>rhe accompanying picture shows Captain Noel renewing acquain.
