Notices of approval of prelim..
inary applications for residence in
Mosher-Jordan Halls are being sent
out this week by the directors
office. A membership committee
composed of Margaret Bush, '30,
outgoing president of the Women's
League, Elizabeth DeVol, '30, retir-
ing chairmanb of the house organ-
ization committee of the League
Eleanor Cooke, '31, Albertina Mas-
len, '31, who will fulfill these re-
spective positions next year, Miss
Inez V. Bozorth, and Mrs. Mary E.
Buffington, the two directors of the
dormitory now on campus, has been
workfing for the past two weeks on
the application file numbering ap-
proximately 350.
Scholarship is Important.
Applicants are being judged first
on scholarship, women who are on
probation or near the boderliine,
excet thosecases which merit spe-
cial consideration, are not being ac-
cepted. Character and attitude are
also given careful consideration, in
an. effort to build up a strong or-
Oahnation 'of wotien who can and
will adjust themselves to the re-
tunirements of the opportunities of
dormitory life.
The'final application cards call-
ing for a choice of rooms and room-
mates, are being sent out with the
approval notices this week. In the
early part of the summer notices
will be sent to the women who are
to live inthe .dormitory as to the
room7s which they will occupy in the

ed hv ey exceqded the quota which

mentsare being made to take care
of some' of these women in the un-
dergraduate sections. Requests from
juniors and seniors are rapidly ap-
proachiing the quota set for upper-
class residents.
Applications Are Received.
Accomodations have been re-
served for 250 freshmen and enter-
ing uppercass transfer students.
Many applications have already
been received for these spaces.
Work on the dormitory is pro-
gressing at, a rapid rate according
to Mr. A. 0; Pehrson, consulting en-
gineer for the construction firm of
Pehrson Brothers, Minneapolis,
Mginn. Plasterers are working on the
interior of the building and expect
to be ready to start on the wood-
working in the near future. The
construction company expects to
turn the building over to the au-
thorities by the first of August.
During the month of August the
finishing touches are to be added'
preparatory to the arrival of the
furniture which will be delivered
the first of September. Kitchen
equipment will be installed during
August and the building will be
ready for student occupation dur-
ing Oriente-on week.

This is almost the last rehearsal
of "Antigone" and I am told that
I may watch if I sit quietly in onej
of the back rows. Robert Hender-
son, the director, sits in back of me
with a pencil and paper in his hand.
There's a clever little searchlight
attached to the paper.
"We're having the dress rehear-
sal tonight," he explains to me. I
watch the curtains draw apart to
present only a spiral staircase sil-
houetted against a blue sky. A cho-
rus of moving figures almost glide
in. Then Antigone, raising her head
defiantly, faces the king. Margar-}
et Anglin as "Antigone" makes me
forget her street clothes and see
her instead in the robes that Soph-
ocles would have had her wear. Her
voice is very beautiful and very
Antigone is condemned to death
and there is suddenly a rhythmic
movement of fear among the
strangely pathetic figures around
her. I watch a black-haired youth
lead her away. "There, do you see
that?" Mr. Henderson asks me.
"Every one of the members of the
chorus of peasants is a talented
dancer. Each one must move so as
to be in rhythm and to give mean-
ing to the interpretation." I nod
but say nothing. I am too engross-
ed in the play.
The entrance of the blind proph-
et marks a new atmosphere. He
brings understanding and beauty to
the minds- of those who before had
none. The depressed spirit of the
chorus changes now to bacchanal-
ian lightness. Yet I am somewhat
perplexed. The change is a bit-
"Watch this, now," the director cuts
in, "The greatest moment of joy in
plays of this type always precedes
the moment of most horror."
I sit back tensely and wait. The
blue sky slowly burns into one of
blood-red. Then it becomes dark-
er, more threatening, and the pea-
sant joy is stifled beneath the
weight of sorrow as Creon is -seen
bearing his dead son in his arms.
He lays him wearily and sorrowful-
ly on the winding steps.
Rehearsal is over and the cur-
tain has closed. Robert Henderson
