Play Presentation Returned to
a Campus Building After
Long Absence.
"State Street," highly reminiscent
of the Ann Arbor campus and the
college spirit which pervades it,
has been selected as the title of the
1930 production of the annual
unior Girls' Play, to be presented
arch 17 to 22 by the class of '31
l honor of the senior women of
the University. The play was writ-
ten by Marian L. Reading..
This latest production marks a
reversion to the collegiate theme
and to campus senes. The presen-
tation of the play in the,'Lydia
Mendelssohn theater marks also its
i'eturn to a University building, a
fitting accompaniment to the col-
lege plot.
,'The Huron river,. a sorority house,
and a college cabaret provide
scenes for the action of the story,
which takes place in Ann Arbor.
The characters are all those that
ne finds on the campus, including
Some of a very unusual nature.
Cast to be Announced.
Members of the cast for the Jun-
.or Girls' Play have already been
hosen, and the names of those
ho will have leading parts will be
announced in a few days.
The mal order sale of tickets for
1the 1930 production will begin on
Monday, Feb. 24. Applications for
tickets have been sent out to alum-
inae in towns all over Michigan.
Mail orders are being received for
fthe week of March 17 to 22 by Jane
l earnd, '31, Betsy Barbour house.
Several Junior Girls' Plays of the
;past have been successfully pro-
'ueed with .college life as the cen-
tral theme. Miss Amy Loomis, the
director of the 1930 production,
also directed the 1926 presentation,
"Becky Behave," another play of'
campus life.
Miss Loomis was the first direc-
tor of a Junior Girls' Play who her-
self had been a member of a Jun-
ior play cast. When "Becky Be-
have" was first performed, it was
said that the play "caught the
spirit of college idioms tnd used
them to advantage."
Work Progresses Steadily.
Helen Jones, general chairman of
the Junior Girls' Play, heads the
committee which is working stead-
ly to complete the production in
the few weeks which remain before
its opening. The members' of her
committee are Ruth Van Tuyl, as-
sistant chairman; Jane Yearnd,
finance chairman; Helen Domine,
publicity chairman; Lucile Strauss,
dance chairman; Marjorie Mc-
Clung, music chairman; Kathleen
Clifford, properties chairman; Mar-
garet -Hapgood, costume chairman;
Hermine. Soukup, makeup chair-
man; Roberta Reed, programs
chairman; aMd Margaret Eaman,
ushers chairman.

A roulette wheel, gambling
games, and "Keeno" tables were all
to be found in the little room on
the top floor of the League, clev-
erly furnished by the members of
Mortarboard for the occasion. Late
in the evening gingerale and pop-
corn were 'served in a style very
similar to that experienced when

ordering a la carte in a Casino.
Every year it has been the cus-
tom for the three honorary socie-
ties toentertain each other at some
.time with a 'party that is as unique
as the one given last night. Senior
Society was the hostess for the
other two groups last fall at a the-
ater party at the Rae.

Greater recognition has come to
the film of "The Passion of Joan
of Arc," which is now playing at the
Lydia Mendelssohn theater, with
the listing of it by the New York
Times as one of the leading inter-
national pictures. Many times be-
fore standard critics have classed
it in the ten best international
film products.
Mile. Falconetti passes one of the
greatest tests of dramatic abilityl
when she acts without the usuall
accoutrements of make-up, and
more especially with her shaven
head. It seems almost incredible
that she should be able to attain
such effects as she does with the
simple and homely garb she; wears.
One of the most outstanding
examples of this is in the scene
when she is forced to have her
head shaved. As the long locks of
hair fall to the floor, she moves
her eyes only the fraction of an
inch to watch them, and tears roll
down her cheeks-there is no oth-
er movement or expression.
Mlle. Falconetti was formerly as-
sociated with the Comedie Fran-
caise but now she manages a the-
ater of her own in France.
Six more presentations of this in-
ternationally famed picture remain
to be shown. There will be a mat-
inee and evening performance to-
day, tomorrow and Saturday. The
proceeds from the picture are to
go to the Undergraduate Campaign
fund of the Women's League.

Professor Ford plans an experi-
ment in which a human subject

a more complete demonstration in
