With three days this week allot-
ted for the public sale of tickets
for "Forward March," the 25th an-
nual Junior Girls' Play, the box
office at Hill auditorium will be
open from 1:30 to 5 o'clock today
for the first sales. Tickets will be
on sale again tomorrow at the
same hours, and on Saturday from
10 to 5 o'clock. The tickets range
in price from $3 for box seats to
$ for balcony seats.
"Forward March," a travesty on
war and women, begins a week's
run at the Whitney theatre next
Monday night. It has been herald-
ed as being unique among musical
comedies, 'both' amateur and pro-
fessional, on account of its ex-
traordinary plot. There are to be
six evening performance, and a
matinee on Saturday, March 23.,
The first presentation is, accord-
ing to tradition, dedicated to the
senior women, and is known as
Senior Night. Friday 'night will be
formal night, and the Saturday'
evening performance is to be
Alumnae Night.
SCruses Larger
S"Forward March" is unusual for
its music and dancing, as well as
for its plot. Choruses larger than
any yet used in Junior Girls' Plays
are being drilled by Camilla Hubel,
chairman of dances. There are to
be a number of feature choruses,
and several specialty dances, one
of which is a toe specialty by Miss
Hubel. An attempt has been made
by the dance chairman to develops
personality in the 'dancing, and
choruses of spirit as well as good
technique are anticipated.
"Paris Bound" and "Right Out of
Heaven" are two of the songs
which are expected to prove popu-
lar with. the audiences. The title
song, "Forward March," is of a
military nature, and there will
also be a "blues" song. The lyrics
for the play have been written by
Lorinda McAndrew, chairman of
music, Frances Sackett, the author
Sof the play, and Molly Goodell. The
scores have been written by Miss
McAndrew, Retta McKnight, Jose-
phine Rankin, and Rachel Ramsey.
There is further assurance that
this year's Junior Girls' Play will
be a success in the fact that "For-
ward March" is being directed by
Phyllis Loughton, '28, who while on
the campus was active in the dra-
matic productions of Comedy Club
of Mimes and, who is now working
with Miss Jessie Bonstelle at the
Detroit Civic theater. Miss Lough-
