Does Best Work.
Tryouts for the women's ,editor-
ial staff of the Daily will meet at
4 o'clock tomorrow afternoon in
the Daily office instead of this aft-
ernoon a s was previously an-
nounced. Since all promotions are
made through a process of elimi-
iption and the ones who start their
freshman year are given first
chance at promotion, all freshman
women interested are urged to be
at the meeting tomorrow.
Three Beats Given.
All news sources are organized in
the beats system and tryouts will
be appointed to beats as soon as
they have learned enough about
the Daily style to merit one.
There are three major beats on
the women's page which are cov-
ered by juniors. They are the
League, Women's Athletic Associa-
tion, and Intramural Sports. The
three who are appointed to these
are those who have shown interest,
accuracy, and particular ability
during their freshman and -sopho-
Work on the Daily affords many
chancesrto learn much about the
hobby or future vocation of the re-
porter and a1s o offers many
chances to meet people who are
leaders in their fields. Aside from
having the opportunity of meeting
and interviewing men and women
on campus who are authorities, the
opportunity to meet visiting celeb-
rities is afforded Daily people.
For those interested in earning
league points, reporting is one of
the more pleasant ways of doing so
because it is one of the few sources
of points which is not confined
to some~ narrow field of activity.
By beginning work on the Daily
during the freshman year one is
able to have a semester in which
to train herself to be an applicant
for the Theta Sigma Phi cup which
is awarded each spring to the soph-
omore woman who has done the
best work on a student publication
during the year.
'Flu' Attacks Rosa
By Elsie Feldman.
In disposition Ponselles are no
different from the rest of us, for
the "bug", besieged her too; that is,
Rosa Ponselle had the "flu" last
night, and because of doctor's or-
ders and a necessary hasty depart-j
ure, an interview was precluded.
Miss Ponselle adhered to tradi-
tion in announcing through her
official representative that she was"
performing despite a. temporary
illness. One did not notice, how-+
ever, that the soprano had a 'fever
last night as she sang with a fer-
vor that equalled her other per-
Her appearance on the stage wass
indeed striking. She wore a gown'
of heavy white satin with a cape

with a wide band of dark fox fur.
Brilliants forbearrings and several
rhinestone bracelets which added
sparkle were inrkeeping with the
rest of her attire.
Miss Ponselle is staying with
friends in Bloomfield hills after
which she will continue her concert
tour appearing next at Oberlin'col-

"Robin Hood" is one of the few
operettas which can claim musical
numbers that are as popular after
years of appearing on nearly every
type of program as on that opening
night when they were first sung to
an eager and enthusiastic audience.
Few songs could stand being
played as many times in as many
music halls as "My Love, My Own
Sweetheart," and "Brown October
Ale," and very few could withstand
the strain of being sung and en-
cored as often as "Oh Promise Me."
It is interesting to note that the
role of Alan a Dale, who sings "Oh
Promise Me," was written for a
contralto voice and that, therefore,
the part has always been played by
In selecting the cast for the
forthcoming campus production it
was found that two of the tryouts,
Mrs. Hope Eddy, spec., and Mrs. La-
Von Greiner, spec., had equally
beautiful voices, and had equal
ease in adapting themselves to the
role of the youthful member of the
outlaw's band of merry men.
Since there was no way to choose
between them each woman is to
have a chance to do the part, Mrs.
Eddy playing it Friday night, and
Mrs. Greiner Saturday night. Mrs.
Eddy will be remembered for the
concert work which she has done
here, and Mrs. Greiner was the
winner of an Atwater Kent contest
a few years ago. Other women in
the cast are Dorathea Torbeson,
'32SM., Helen VanLoon, '32SM, and
Frances Johnson, '33.
