in Leading Roles.
First Performance Will Honor
Seniors After Traditional
Supper Monday.
When the curtain rises Monday
night on "Came the Dawn!", the
twenty-seventh Junior Girls' Play,
six women will appear in the lead-
ing roles. The story centers around
Professor Holcomb, newly arrived
on the Michigan campus, whose
part will be played by Catherine
Robinson, '32Ed. The part of Ernie,
the leading man, will be taken by
Frothy Felske, '32Ed. M i 1 d r e d

-The comedy parts are being car-
vied by Helen Dooley, '32, as Mamie,
and Esther La Rowe, '32Ed., as Ce-
c1l1 Sappe, co-assistant, with 'Tinia,

Yronne, Mamie's sophisticated old-
er' sister, is being taken by Mary
Rich, '32.
Synopsis of the Plot.
Soon after his arrival on cam-
pus, Professor Holcomb starts work-
ing on a mysterious project, which
,is kept from Ernie, and the news-
paper reporters only through - the
heroic efforts of Cecil. As the storys
progresses, 'Tinia becomes more and
more, involved in the professor's
work, and Ernie tries to get his in-
formation through her. The final
revelation of the professor's secret,
and the reason for it constitute the
remainder of the story.s
The play, which was written by
Jeannie Roberts and Donna Jones, .
not only preu ts a picture of cam-
pus life, but also of the collegiatet
type of student as compared with
the non-collegian. A few familiar
sociological principles are also prov-c
en.by the actions of the charactersr
u."Came the Dawn.,,"
There are two acts in the play,r
with three scenes in each. Every
scene takes place in a different
place and at least four of them arec
situated in familiar localities.mN

of the play is traditionally in honor
of the seniors, for whom the firsti
Junior Girls' Play was presented.I

The Optimists, the faculty team,

tournament to play a game at 4
o'clock on Thursday.
Ineligible players on the inter-
class teams will not receive points
nor awards at the close of the tour-

ry-over from high school clubs and
initiations," stated Miss Alice Lloyd,
Dean of Women, yesterday when
she was asked to give her opinion
,on sorority pre-initiation periods.
"I believe that it is better now
than it has been in former years on
this campus. Many of the sorori-
ties seem to be dropping the prac-
tice altogether, and most of the
others are realizing that it is more
a time to create good feeling and
friendliness, as well as giving con-
structive training than a week of
making the p 1 e d g e s miserable,"
Miss Lloyd continued.
"When pro-week goes so far as to
impose mental or physical strain on
freshman or upperclass pledges,. it
defeats its own purpose," she stat-
ed. "The purpose of the period, as

I see it, is to prepare the pledge
for her initiation by getting her
into the spirit of the house, instruc-
ting her in house and chapter tra-
ditions, and helping her to know
her sisters and those in her pledge
class better. When pro-week goes
as far as to injure the girl's health,
interfere with her studies, or hurt
her feelings, it should be immedi-
ately improved."
"I am not holding it in disfavor
as long as it does not border on the
undignified or unhelpful. Often
during pro-week, an older sister,
sponser, or mother, can tell the girl
kindly where she fails in living up
to certain standards, an'd where
she can improve herself. This is so
much better than the sort of a pro-
week where the pledge is publicly
belittled, or hurt.
"I do not disap-prove of pro-
weeks, but I think this, that a dig-
nified helpful week, should how-
ever replace all forms of hazing,
meanness, or other hard work for
the pledges." Miss Lloyd said in
