Second tryouts for the Junior
Girl4 Play will be held Thursday,
Friday, and Saturday of this week.
Tryouts for lead parts will be
held at 4 o'clock Thursday. Cards
have been sent to those who are
to come at this time. There will.
be final tryouts for lead parts,
sometime Friday and the cast will
probably be chosen at this time.
Second tryouts for chorus parts will
be held at 1 o'clock Saturday af-
ternoon.
Miss Harriet Brazier, director, has{
requested that all women who have
received cards to tryout agaih for
lead parts should see her before
Thursday. Miss Brazier will be n
her office in the League building
from 1 to 6 o'clock every day this
week. There also will be several
copies of the play manuscript in
Miss Brazier's office and it is sug-
gested that those in line for lead
parts look over the manuscript,
and get an idea of the characteri-
zation.
The nature of the second tryout
for the leads will be like that of 4a
reading group. All those for one
part will take turns reading lines
of the play. Accorling to Miss Bra-
zier, it will also be necessary to
have a song prepared and probably
a dance.
Those who receive cards, if they
do not get lead parts, will get first
choice in the choruses. Tryouts
for the choruses on Saturday will
not be in one group but in several
and will start at 1 o'clock.
If there are any junior women
who are unable to attend first try-
outs they should see Miss Brazier
at once and arrange a time for. a
tryout.

VALUE OF MODERN.
IN PHYSICAL, C
Coach Johnstone States Hopes
of Class for Foil
Tournament.
"Fencing, in some form or an-
other has been in vogue since theA
BWonze age," stated Coach John
Johnstone in an interview recently.
"It is prominent now as a sport,
and women are becoming more in-
terested in it every year. It has a
great leisure time value, but more
than that, it is beneficial to health."
There is so much romantic glam-
our about fencing, that many are
interested because of its cultural
value. It holds attraction for those
interested in dramatics because of
the grace and poise of the accom-
panying movements. The literary
allusions to this form of action are
so many that a knowledge of it is
decidedly beneficial.
"Fencing is not strenuous but
stimulating because; it requires
technique and coordination of the
muscles. It has a tendency to cor-
rect physical defects, and is a good
reducing medium," continued Coach
Johnstone. "Balance and control
of the system are necessary to the I;
sport. Rhythm also plays a large'
part in the action. Fencing is a
most efficient pasttime because it
requires so little equipment, prepar-
ation, or room."

"American women are the most
beautiful in the world and will be
the best dressed as soon as they
stop lavishly following fashion,"
says M. Jean Charles Worth, one of
the most widely known clothes' de-
signers in Paris.
"The face and figure of the Amer-
ican woman are as beautiful as a
picture," he continued. "However,
when she begins to plan her clothes
-the frame for that face and fig-
ure-she is apt to follow fashion
blindly and forget to use her own
good sense. She reads that some-
one has created a tilted hat with a:
feather curling under the chin-
and away she goes and buys a hat
with a curling feather. She pays
no attention to whether her nose is
long and her neck short, her shoul-
ders wide or her figure athletic. She
wears the latest wrinkle willy-nilly
-and too often it's a sad misfit."
"When she learns to judge her-
self and choose her clothes accord-
ingly, she will be the best dressed
woman in the world. 'Know your-
self' is the first law in the com-
man dments of chic. Consider your
customs! Take your time!" M.
Worth' declares.
The chic Parisian, he says, never
buys a frock without considering
where she wishes to wear it. She
willingly gives six weeks to the se-1
lection of her wardrobe and two
.hours to the molding of a hat to

Friday evening the Laboratory
theatre will house Maxim Gorki's
great masterpiece, "The Lower
Depth's" which is being sponsored
by the Departments of English and
of Play Production.
Since the play is on reading lists in
most of thecolleges of the Univer-
sity it is being brought expressly
for those students who will be able
to gain a deeperrunderstanding of
it by seeing ,it produced.
Dr. 0. J. Campbell, professor of
English, in telling something of its
history said, "When the Mostdw
Art Players toured in America a
few years ago "The Lower Depths"
was their most popular play and
it is partly through it that they
made for themselves their remark-
able reputation."
Dr. Campbell also stated that it'
is probably the greatest play of its
kind. It is vivid drama of the low-
er stratum of prerevolutionary Rus-
sian life and Mr. Gorki, through
his fascinating style has lent it a
peculiar savage beauty w h i c h
makes it aproduction of great
power. It is a great vehicle from
the acting as well as the literary
viewpoint since each character is
a well rounded individual. For this
reason it has been a very popular
piece for the better little theatre
groups.
It is being presented by the De-
troit Laboratory Players, a little
theatre group of great merit which
is sponsored by such leaders among
women as Mrs. Edsel Ford and Mrs.
Phillip Newberry. There will be on-
ly one performance of it here.
