business side as are taking part in
the play.
Amy Loomis Directs
Fourth Junior Play
Amy Loomis, director of "Came
the Dawn!," has directed three jun-
yr Girls' Plays previous to this
year.

In 1925, the play was "Castles in
Spain," and in 1926, "Becky Be-j
have." Last year "State Street,"
was also set on campus.
"Came the Dawn! ," written by
Donna Jones and Jennie Roberts,
is a more intimate picture of cam-
pus than has ever been attempted
before, Miss Loomis is particularily
capable to direct this type of play,
since, in addition to her previous
experience, she herself was a stu-
dent on the Michigan campus.

Committees Begin Activity Widh
Selection of Book and
Securing Director.
Production of a Junior Girls' Play
is a task which covers an entire
school year, and at least six months
of active work. The central com-
mittee for the play is responsible
for selecting the book, securing a
director, holding tryouts, and for
all the business and technical de-
tails.
The general chairman of the
play, who this year is Emily dates,
supervises the work of the entire
committee and aids the director in

PRODUCTIGN CROWS,
Profit Goes to -Undergraduate
Campaign Fund for League
Building.
In 1908 a small group of junior
women started the long line of Jun-
ior Girls' Plays by presenting the
first one, "Don-Quixote, or The
Co-Ed Knight," in Sarah Caswell
Angell Hall. Since that time the
play has grown, both in the size
of the production and as a finan-
cial project.
Today the money made by the
play goes to the Undergraduate
Campaign Fund of the Women's
League to help pay for the build-
ing. Last year "State Street" was
the first Junior Girls' Play to be
presented in the Lydia Mendel-
ssohnn theatre, which previous
plays had helped make possible.
The League building is also used
for rehearsals, costume-making, and'
construction of properties.

By 3JH.L.
"Came the Dawn!" is no excep-
tion to its predecessors as far as
the number of song and dance spe-
cialties is concerned, and because
of the unusual amount of talent in'
the present junior class, neither
should it be an exception as to ex-
cellence of the numbers.
While it is impossible to, predict
,exactly which songs will be the
most popular, or which will be re-
membered and sung in the future,
the theme song, "He'll Understand"
should be among this number.
One of the specialty choruses in
the play, which is composed of wo-
men with particularily good sing- {
ing voices, will present "Girls of the
!Graduate Seminar," and "Harmon-
ize." In the latter they will be as-
sisting a harmony team.
