Mendelssohn Theatre.

Infanta' at Matinee Show
Saturday, Jan. 17.

ned is designed to appeal particu-
larly to children in the local
schools from t h e sixth grade
through the junior high school
grades. Although youngsters in the
lower grades who might enjoy the
pantomime are invited to attend.
"The Birthday of the Infanta"
Is a play dealing with the advent-
ures of a little dwarf who was
-brought from his forest home to
court to dance for the Infanta on
her birthday. The scene of the play
is laid in seventeenth century
Spain.
Those who will take the leading
parts in the playette are: Jean
Winslow, '33, Eveyn Sharff, '31,
Blossom Bacon, 31, and Hadie
Supe, '32.

TRYOUTS QUALIFY
IN HEALTH TEST
Dr. Bell Finds Play Candidates
in Good Physical Condition.
"In examining the members of
the junior class who wish to take
part in the Junior Girls' Play,"
says Dr. Margaret Bell, physician
to the Health Service, "I have found
the majority of them in excellent
physical condition. Only one wo-
man has been advised not to par-
ticipate in the play, so far, and I
am very well pleased."
Dr.eBell suggests, however, that
women who do take part in the1
Play do not try to carry extra hours
as well, since she has found that
no matter how brilliant a student
may be, and no matter how strong
she may seem physically, the strain
is so great that it affects her grades,
her health and the enjoyment she
should get out of the play.
