Small and earnest and very Eng-
lish is Muriel Hutchinson, leading
lady of the Ben Greet English Play-
ers. She stood in the doorway of
her room, and after a perilous
ascent in the doubtful splendor of!
the lift of the hotel, her invitation'
to enter was more than welcome.
Her enthusiasm rose above the
erratic diagonal pattern of the rug,
and the chaste blue outlines of the
cuspidor, which were the room's
chief decorations. "Lady Macbeth
is my favorite character by far,"
she stated, "and while the contiast
between her role and the one of
Viola is very great, I enjoy the

pany is the very best way of seeing

people are literally thirsting for it,

MUSIC IN PLAY

'Came the Dawn' Will Present
Nineteen Songs of Two
"From the total of nineteen songs
which are to be presented in 'Came
the Dawn! '," says Katherine Sit-
ton, chairman of music for the
Junior Girls' Play, "we hope that
there will be some which will at-
tain the popularity which has been
accorded to songs from plays of
There are two types of music be-
ing used in the play this year. The
original manuscript, written by
Jeannie Roberts and Donna Jones,
contained a number of lyrics after
the manner of Gilbert and Sulli-
van, which were so necessary to
the play, that the music to which
they have been set also posseses
the characteristics which are part
of the comic opera music of these
two English writers.
"The second type of music," to
quote Miss Sitton, "is the kind
which is hummed and whistled by
the audiences as they leave the
theatre. The dance tunes are as
' catchy' as the tunes of the popu-
lar music of the day, and the songs
of the various characters are ser-
ious or comic, as the occasion de-
"Most of the music in 'Came the
Dawn!,' added Miss Sitton, has been
written by Ruth Allison, Burnette
Bradley, Emily Randall, and Gwen-
dolyn Zoller, all members of the
A great many of the songs which
are sung in the dormitories and
sorority houses on campus are or-
iginally from Junior Girls' Plays.
"My Michigan," one of the best
known, comes from "Becky Be-
have," which was presented in 1926,
and directed by Amy Loomis, who
is directing "Came the Dawn."
"Eight 'til Eight," given in 1927,
provided the campus with a song
by that name, and also with "Helen,
I Love you," and "A Little College
is a Dangerous Thing."
It is not necessary to have been
in "Forward March" to know the
theme song from that Play, which
was presented in 1928. "Right Out
of Heaven" was its name, and
"Paris Bound," from the same year
is a close second in popularity.

Introduced Sport as Part
of Health Program.
"Interest in fencing has been
growing slowly but steadily," said
John Johnstone, supervisor of phys-
ical education and coach of fenc-
ing, who is instructing the recent-
ly formed fencing class for women
students. "The interest, naturally,
is in fencing as a sport, not as a
means of self-defense against en-
emies nor as a means of vindicating
"The last war, of course, gave
some impetus because of natural
association,"he continued, "but the
present interest comes both from
the sport and the health factor.
Colleges, and more recently high
schools, have b e e n introducing
fencing as a varsity and intramural
"The sport side will be with us
as long as fiction is written and
read and dramas are portrayed,"
he stated. Mr., Johnstone called at-
tention to the fact that the litera-
ture of the last three hundred years
is filled with fencing bouts. In
reading Shakespeare and the other
Elizabethans, Dumas, Scott, and
Stevenson, one "finds pages filled
with the ring of steel;" and "when
he turns to Sabatini for modern
fiction he again is thrilled by the
brave deeds accomplished by the
"But fencing," Mr. Johnstone em-
phasized, "has another factor that
gives it real validity in a physical
education program; health! It
gives excellent co-ordination of
body and develops harmony in the
physical organism. Furthermore,"
he added, "investigation shows that
it is extremely beneficial as a cor-
rective and reducing exercise and
consequently it is an ideal sport
not only for men and boys but for
women and girls also."
