Manuscript For Play Has Been
Chosen, But Author Will

Junior women will assemble en
. masse at 4 o'clock today in Sarah
V Caswell Angell hall to make prep-
arations for the first step in the
elaborate organization required
for the presentation of the annual
. Junior Girls' Play. The time and
i place of the first tryouts, which
are to be held next week, will be
announced at this meeting.
Louise Cody, general chairman,
will explain to the women present
at the meeting the eligibility re-
quirements for participation in the
play. She will also introduce to
the class Phyllis Loughton, '28, who
. is to direct the 25th annual Jun-
ior Girls' Play. Miss Loughton was
active in campus dramatics before
her graduation last June, and two
years ago she directed the junior
play for her own class. She was a
member of Comedy Club, Masques,
and Sigma Delta Phi, honoary
forensic society for women. Since
her graduation she has been assoc-
iated with Miss Jessie Bonstelle at
the Detroit Civic theater. Miss
Loughton will speak on what is ex-
pected of those juniors who try

man, is to give specific information
about tryouts, and the play com-

The driveto collect a $1 fee from
each juaior woman is still being
carried on under the leadership of
Margaret Sibley, business manager
of the play. No woman will be per-
mitted to take part in the play
until she has paid this fee.
Members of the committee which
has been occupied this fall with
the selection of a play director and
of a suitable manuscript are:
Louise Cody, general chairman;
Dorothy McKee, assistant chair-
man;' 1argaret Sibley, business
manager; Dorothy Bloom, pro-
grams; Doris Renkenberger, prop-
erties; Marjorie Folmer, publicity;
Lorinda McAndrew, music; Louis
Soukup,costumes; Camilla Hubel,
dances; and Margaret Bush, make-
up. Of these, the general and
assistant chairmen, business man-
ager, and chairmen of programs
and properties were elected at a
-mass meeting of sophomore women
last May, while the other chair-
men have since been appointed by
Miss Cody.

Fairs have been popular with the
general public since time immem-
orial. In the good old days, almost
any holiday served as an excuse
to hold a fair. Even the hanging
of criminal offenders afforded an
opportunity to have one. These
fairs were always attended by all
those who could possibly get there,
for they made a break in the dead-
ly monotony of the life of the
times, and provided about the
only excitement.
Fairs are still popular in cer-
tain types of communities, even in
this age of the movie and radio.
One has only to attend a county
or state fair to see this. Everyone
gets all excited over nothing in
particular and has a wonderful
time doing it. Not only that, but
they spend money doing it.
And all this leads up to the an-
nouncement that the Women's
League and Interchurch bazaar
will of course afford all the excite-
ment of a real oldfashioned county
fair with a lot of extra thrills
thrown in. Not that the bazaar
really imitates a county fair in all'
details-it doesn't, at least this one
'doesn't. The decoration motif of
this year's bazaar is international.
The colors of the flags of various
countries, as well as the flags
themselves, are being used in the
scheme of decoration. Each booth
at the bazaar is to represent a dif-
ferent country.
The features of the bazaar are
almost too numerous to be men-
tioned in one short article. The
most important, however, are the
tea room, known this year as the
good ship "Shiny Knife," the fash-
ion show presented by Crowley-
Mileer's of Detroit, the fortune-tel-
lers, the fish pond, and last but not
least, the many articles, offered for
Home-made fudge, dear to the
college student whether masculine
or feminine, is to be especially
featured by .the candy booth. Since
this booth is to represent Iceland,
ice cream cones and pop-corn balls
are to be sold. Peanuts from Rush-
mer's are to be offered also.
And the League booth, which
represents the United States, will
feature some special Christmas
cards this year, ,On one of the de-
signs offered, is a sketch of the

dominant; their ipopularity is
traceable a general interest in ba-
tiks which has become aroused in
the last several months. Oils and,
water colors were both represented.
However, there was a noticeable
absence of etchings in the work of'
women, this field being monopoliz-
ed almost entirely by men.
The large majority of the wo-
men exhibitors in Ann Arbor are
not professional artists. In general,
their interest in art centers in three,
chief groups: the Faculty Women's
club, a teachers' group, made upj
both of teachers in the University
and in the city schools, and a few
