Plan Meeting for All Wishing
to Write Book or Music
for 1932 Play.
At a recent meeting of the cen-
tral committee members for the
1932 Junior Girls' play, two chair-
men were added to the personnel
of the committee. Katherine Sit-
ton was chosen as chairman of mu-
sic, while Jean Levy will act as
chairman of publicity- for the play.
According to Emily Bates, '32,
general chairman, the remaining
members of the committee will not
be selected until next semester as
work in the other departments will
not have to be started until that
A meeting will be held some time
next week for those people who are
interested in writing the book for
the play, or in writing music and
lyrics. Directions for the writing
of both will be given at these meet-
ings, so it is essential that every
one who is interested attends.
