LEAGUE TO SPONSOR
THEATER TICKET SALE
Board Of Representatives Vote to Sell
Stadium Pillows At Cost
In League Houses
TO START NEW CAMPAIGN
Selling of tickets for the Rockford
Players' repertory was made the main
effort at a meeting of the Board of
Representatives yesterday morning.
Through the cooperation and gener-
osity of Donald McIntyre; manager of
the Whitney Theater, 40 per cent
of all proceeds above expenses, will
be given to the league. Prices of the
tickets will probably bes$1, 75 cents,
and 50 cents, with season tickets o3
for $5 on $7 seats.
The plays will be given inz
groups of five weeks each, with
an interruption for the Juniort
Girls' Play. In March Otis Skinnerc
and Mrs. Fiske will come to the Whit-
neyktheater, and laer, Charlotte
Walker. The league will receive the
same percentage on the proceeds for
these engagements. Tickets will be
reserved throughout the house.
Although it has not been definitely
decided, "The Merchant of Venice"
will probably be given, on two or,
three nights. "The Old Lady Shows
Her Medals" and "Great Catherine"
will be given on the same night, as
they are both very short.
It was moved and voted that each
house undertake to sell as many as
possible of r the Stadium pillows
which, because of the different con-
ditions at the stadium this year, o-
not sell well at the games. These
pillows will be sold at cost,
which is 75 cents. Although football
season is over, it was suggested that
they make good automobile and canoe
pillows. They are covered with oil-'
Mrs. Henderson Speaks I
In speaking of the progress of the
new league building, Mrs. W. D. Hen-
derson, executive secretary of the
alumnae council, said, "Some have
expressed disappointment that tne
whole building cannot be completed
at once. This has not been the plan
and we feel that we are accomplish-
ing, a good deal in finishing th'
building in the amount of time it
has taken. The building has been
underway only five years, and the
present committee in charge has haG
it only a little more than a year. In
comparison, it took 17 years to build
the Union building.
"Bids for the contract are now be-
ing received, and they will be opened
on Dec. 28, This means that actual
work will commence early in Jan-
uary. T'he auditorium and swimming
pool will not be finished. However, the
pool was not a part of the original
plan, and was added in the last year.
Dr. Little has asked that the women
wait until a pool has been instafad
in the gymnasium, before adding one
to the league building. When th:e
league pledged $50,000 a year ago,
they intended to earn the money.
However, that amount has now been
taken care of by their tuition and
any additional money now will go
directly into the fund for the audi-
torium. In the agreement with the Re-
gents, $250,000 of the milon dollars
raised, had to be put aside as an en-
dowment fund," Mrs. Henderson went

"Many women think that there isl
im field for them in archaeclo y be-
cause they cannot excavate," said Miss
Orma Butler of the University archae-1
ology department. "That is, they im-h
agine that they can not excavate. If
they really are inspired by a desire toc
go among the ruins and dig, there is
nothing to prevent them. It is hardb
for them, of course, especially if theyb
are not used to manuel labor. Inr
addition, in some countries, they arev
regarded unkindly by the natives, and
made to suffer the pains of all womang
Nevertheless, there are many won-c
en who go in for excavating, andI
like it. Miss Butler told of severalI
who had been digging for severalE
years, and who had been very success-
"Although these few have done it,E
the opportunities for women in that
line of work are obviously limited,"
she went on: "However, there is an
endless field for them in interpreta-
tion of objects. This work is interest-
ing-think of the sidelights one- gets
on ancient civilization-and remunera-
tive, and is a stepping-stone to high1
1 positions, such as appointments to thet
ing. Here also, the director of thet
staff of the Metropolitan museum."'
Miss Butler told of the American
schools of archaeology abroad. Atf
Athens, there is the American School
of Classical Studies, founded about1
1881, and financed by gifts of Amer-
ican colleges aind universities, of
which the University of Michigan is
one. The first woman graduate of the
University of Michigan, Annie S. Peck,
178, A.B., pursued further studies there.
The school offers an admirable oppor-
tunity to study Greek civilization and
life, according to Miss Butler, and
many important pieces of research,
and many important excavations are
The American School of Classical
Studies at Rome, merged in 1911 with
the School of Architecture, which was
founded in 1895, and later enlarged to
include sculpture and painting, be-
came the American Academy in Rome.
Three years after the merging, the
academy building on the Janiculum
opened. Here the men fellows of the
academy can live.
The women fellows live at the Villa
Aurelea, a large and beautiful build-
from the Regents to continue for a
short time to raise money for the

Academy, Gorhan P. Stevens, has his
suite. From the terrace of the Villa,
one can see the whole panorama of
Rome laid out before him, and can
pick out remains of ancient life from
his very door. The view in itself is an
inspiration to hard work, Miss Butler
continued. The Janiculum is also in-
interesting for its history, having
been, in 1879, the scene of a fierce
battle between Garibaldi and his sup-
porters against the Austrians, who
were making an attack on Rome.
"A woman studying in Rome can
get a deep insight into the life of the
ancient inhabitants," Miss Butler con-1
cluded, "The Library, the facilities of
working with other institutions in
Rome, rich art collections, and the
excavations give one an ideal back-
ground and excellent cultural oppor-
tunities for transforming any inter-
ested person into an enthusiastic
Tryouts For Juniorf
Play Exhibit Talent
With the last group of tryouts ap-
pearing yesterday in competition for
the coming Junior Girls' Play, more
than 225 juniors had entered their tal-
ents for the production. A great deal
of excellent material was discovered
for the male choruses, according to
Elizabeth Wellman, '29, chairman of
the play, although more tryouts couldI
be used for male leads.
Individual notices will be sent to
all women who are eligible for the
final tryouts, which will take place
after the Christmas vacation. It is ex-
pected that all such notices will be out
prior to Dec. 16.
Those who could not appear at the
tryouts during the past week will be
given one more opportunity to do so;
theyare asked to watch The Dailyfor
announcement of the hour and date.
This may be arranged during the
coming week, or will, perhaps, be post-
poned until following the holidays.
All junior women who are on warn-
ing or probation from last semester are
not permitted to try out at present.
They may, however, report to Eliza-
beth Wellman, telephone 7817, in order
that they can be called upon at the
close of this- semester, if they are
