There will be someone at the candy

Thursday, Friday, and Saturday
will be given over to the tryouts.
They will be held from 3:130 to 5
o'clock Thursday and Friday, and
from 9:30 to 12 o'clock Saturday

If any junior woman has not
paid her dollar dues and is
planning to participate she
may pay her fee at the door of
the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre
at the time of her tryout. A
health certifivate must be re-

professor of physical education

ed to immediately.
Eligibility is necessary to parti-
cipate in the play, that is an aver-

the campus for the first time will
have to receive permission from the

Each tryout is to last no longer
than three minutes and may be
either singing, dancing, or a reci-
tation. Women should ,bring either
their " own accompanist, victrola
records, or sheet music. Members
of the central committee and the
director Miss Harriet Brazier will
judge the performances. No cos-
tumes are required for the tryout.
There are several character parts
in the play which do not require
the usual singing and dancing abil-
ity and thus the tryouts need not
be especially talented in this way.
There will of course be a number of
choruses in the ply which will
need those who sing and dance.
"The Junior Girls' Play is a cam-
pus tradition," stated Jean Bots-
ford, general chairman of the play.
"It is up to every woman in the
class to cooperate and participate
in some way.
Miss Botsford heads the central
TO APPEAR HERE
Sylvia Nellis to Play Role
of Polly Peach un.
For twohundred and three years
Polly Peachum has been a popular
character to theatre goers in Eng-
land and America and Friday and
Saturday Ann Arbor is to have the
great privilege of seeing her as por-
trayed by Miss Sylvia Nellis who
created and sings that role in the
Sir Nigel Playfair production cf
"The Beggar's Opera."
Miss Nellis, who has enjoyed a
successful career as English prima
donna of Convent Garden and ra-
dio star presents Polly as a pink
and white ingenue in the grand old
sentimental manner and in the
present tour * of the United States
has won great favor and popular-
ity through her characterization.
Polly is an impulsive creature
w!o falls desperately in love with
a Captain Macheath, highwayman
and gang leader, and much to the
distress of her parents she marries
him: Mr. Peachum, in order to col-
lect the price set on his unwanted
Son-in-law's head, and so that his,
daughter may enjoy the luxury of
widowhood, has him arrested. In-
stead of ending difficulties this act
only brings about new complica-
tions for its is discovered that the
culprit has -another wife. After
many exciting incidents the hus-
band decides to share himself be-
tween the two wives thus making
tie play unique in that it is prob-
ably the only triangle which al-
Jpws all three members happiness.)
Junior Girls' Play
for Campus Women
By Elsie G. Feldman
There is perhaps no other event
on the Michigan campus which -is
as traditional as the Junior Girls'
Play. It is without doubt the climax
of all activity of women from the'
time they enter the university.
Plans for the play begin almost
a year before its presentation with
the election of the general chair-
man and the central committee.
Active work begins in the fall with
the selectioti of the manuscript and
the committee members and finally
the tryouts which are to take place
this week. It is a project of the
junior class in which all junior wo-
men are expected to participate.
In 1908 a small group of junior
women Started the long line of
Junior Girls' Play , by presenting
"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 financial project.
Today the money made by the
play goes to the Undergraduate
Campaign Fund of the Women's
League to help pay for the building.
Two years ago "State Street" was
the first of the Junior Girls' Play
to be presented in the Lydia Men-
delssohn Theatre, which previous
plays had helped make possible.

"Dr. Erlanson?" I asked a young
woman sitting in an office in the.
Natural Science Building. She nod-
"I understand that you are the
best authority in the world on the
wild roses in North America," I
"How did you start in this work?"
"Dr. C. C. Dean, state forester of
Illinois suggested that no one knew
anything definite about wild roses
in North America. I thought I had
fifty years or so in which to do
something and that this would be
an interesting project, so I started.
That was in 1923," stated Dr. Er-
lanson. "I wrote to rose growers
and collectors everywhere, and took
long collecting tours., I've had
many interesting experiences on
these tours, as any one would, driv-
ing from Cape Cod to Los Angeles,
through Old Mexico, and as far
north as New Pert, Oregon.",
"Now my work consists of cross-
ing hybrid seedlings to determine
the exact results," continued Dr.
Erlanson. "Before this work was
started the classification of wild
roses was a case of guesswork. I
am going to publish a paper on the
present state of rsose classification
in the 1932 American Rose Annual."

Miss Robinson was seriously injured

was believed that she would be un-

games. However, encouragement
comes with the announcement that
she is gradually rounding into form
and that her fractured arm will be
