could be completed by Mar. 4.
The only unanimity, however, ap-
peared to be on drought and un-
employment relief legislation.

Reception at
Dramatic Class Offers
Famous Comedy
by Moliere.




Play Production opened the
new Laboratory theater last nigh
with a formal performance of
Moliere's "The Affected Misses."
(Les Precieuses Ridicules.) The
opening was attended- by many
University officials, and marked
the beginning of Play Produc-
tion's season in their new home.
Prior to the presentation of the
play, the Dramatic Committee
held a reception in the new "Green
Room" of the theater for all the
invited guests. In the receiving line
were Prof. James O'Neil, head of
the speech department, Dean Alice
Lloyd, dean of women, Prof. 0. J.
Campbell, of the English depart-
ment, Prof. Kenyon, of the School
of Engineering, and Prof. J. Win-

Among the guests were Dean
John R. Effinger, Regent Esther

Lydia Mendelssohn theater. Prof.
R. Crane, of the political depart-
ment, Frof. William H. Hobbs, head
of the geology department, and
Prof. G. D. Eaton, head of the Ger-
mnan department.
Following the performance, stu-
dents in the Play Production classes
conducted the guests on a tour of
inspection of the building, which
has been completely remodelled
since it was taken over from Mimes
last fall. The lounge has been con-
verted into a reception room, shut
off from the auditorium, and mur-
als have been painted on its walls
by advance students. Inside the
auditorium art students have paint-
ed tapestries to cover the back wall,
as well as redecorated the curtain.
Downstairs, the store rooms have
been painted and, furnished for

The opening of the theater
marked the start of the nearest

Decision on Present Literary
College Method Requires
Extensive Research.
It will probably take the special l
committee, recently appointed by
Dean John R. Effinger to study the
marking system in the literary
school, several months to reach a
definite decision concerning the
effectiveness of the plan now used
j in the literary college in giving out
marks, Dean W. R. Humphreys,
chairman of the committee and
assistant dean of the college, stat-
ed yesterday.
"I am not in a position to say

ed 'experts' in this line," he said,
"will be given a chance to present
their views before the committee."
These men who are considered 'ex-
perts,' Dean Humphreys explained,
are those faculty members who
have collected statistics and otherl
types of data on marking systems.
