their distribution, but will be an-
nounced shortly.
Tickets for the play will be avail-
able at the same time, and women
wishing to attend the supper and
play in a group must obtain their
tickets together.
College Student Drinking Seems
Much Less Evident.
(i Ten News Service)
MADISON, Wis., March 10.-
Smoking among university women
is a fad that is gradually passing
away, believes Mrs. George F. Hal-
verson, president of the Madison
Central W. C. T. U., who granted
The Daily Cardinal, University of
Wisconsin student publication, an
exclusive interview recently.
"Bobbing hair became passe
when the older women started to
bob theirs," declared Mrs. Halver-
son. "Any old woman can smoke,
and some do, but when the girls
see them, and see how they look.
they will quit."
"I don't know whether there is
any more drinking among the stud-
ents now than there ever was, but
I do know that it isn't as noticeable
as it was 30 years ago.
"Very seldom do you see students

staggering around the streets, or
drinking in State street saloons as
they did before prohibition. Even
the sight of professors in a state of
semi-consciousness was not unusual
in those days," she revealed. "Now,
though they may drink just as
much, it is not noticed because they
have to drink in private."
Before prohibition State street
was lined with beer parlors. Stud-
ents drinking became so bad at one
time that an ordinance forbidding
saloons within a mile of the Uni-
versity was passed, according to
Mrs. alverson.

Rehearsals for "No Man's
Land!' for today are as follows:
At 3:30 o'clock all women who
have speaking parts in Act I and
II will meet. At 4:45 o'clock
there will be a rehearsal of Act I
Scene 2 with Reul Kenyon. A

Last fall Comedy Club introduced
to campus dramatic circles Frances
Johnson, '33, as Alida Bloodgood,
the cunning villainess of Bouci-
cault's melodrama, "Streets of New
Yorks," and tonight Miss Johnson
will fill the only feminine role in
"Robin Hood" which is not being
done by a student in the School of
We can .scarcely forget Miss
Johnson's interpretation of her part
in the Boucicault revival because it
was one of the best bits of acting
in the production.
Because of the skillful manner in
which she handled the role she
was given the part of Lady Cyn-
thia, in Comedy Club's most recent
success, "Anthony and Anna," by
St. John Ervine.
And now she will do the char-
acter part of Dame Durden in the
DeKoven operetta. There is noth-
ing of the plotting banker's daugh-
ter who wishes to buy a gentleman
husband with her father's ill-got-
ten wealth in the role. Nor is there
even a suggestion of the English
noble woman whose family has too
many ancestors and too little mon-
ey. But like them it is purely com-
edy, and gives Miss Johnson a
splendid chance to show her ability
in handling a comedy role.
