Junior Women.


Built around the theme of the
struggie between men and women
etudents fcr supremacy on campus,
.No Flans Land" pr.sents many un-
usual and entertaining situations.
.As may be seen from the title, the
women hold the upper hand, at
least through the majo .rt of the
play, and they are notc se to rea-
lize the advantages of their posi-
Wilhemina, or Wily, i - the lad-
er of the women's moement, and
as managing editor of the Daily, she
is in a fair way to promulgate her
decrees. Opposition comes from
the men, headed by George, men's
editor of the Daily, and from a few
of the women, who object to the
financial strain imposed. A clash is
inevitable, and the struggle gathers
in intensity throughout the play.
Comedy is furnished by Frank
and Earnest, Frank being the ed-
itcr of the Gargoyle, and Earnest
her hungry cohort. Their rollick-
ing adventures, in pursuit of the
wary Sam get them into hot water,
and a surprise ending leaves them
;iartners in sorrow.
Other comedians include Joseph-
zne, the indominable captain of the
football team; Lew, the studious
brother of Sam, and Jo's mortal en-
emy; and Becky, the dumb co-ed
who suffers from a lack of dates.
These comedy teams furnish much
of the interest, and add tc the
gaiety of the whole.
Aditional interest is contributed
by the beautiful lady processor, the
hard boiled lady coach of the foot-
ball team, and Bobby, the first
woman chairman of the J-Hop.
Kate is the one woman who is nev-
er in sympathy with the movement,
even from the very beginning.
To honor Miss Harriet Brazier,
director, a tea will be held for
the members of the central com-
mittee at 4:30 'cla !l today in

vancement in the outstanding cam-

Play. Although the first play
which took place in 1904 was a con-
scientious effort a; a dramatic pro-
duction, it was performed on a
much smaler scale than the play of
Itday and did- not require the in-
tensive direction and rehearsals.

The number that will probably
appsal most of all to the men is the
"Hungrey Co-Ed" chorus, skilfully
written and musicated by Johnny
Chuck and Oscar the Wonderhorse.
These two have also ooiiaboiated to
produce "Boys of the B. & G, a
solemn dirge.
"You C'n't Get Along Without
Love," by Betty VanHorn, will ap-
peal to the more sentimental inter-
ests in the audience, while "Do the
Hop," by Avis Pitts, is said to be
more of what is known as the Hot-
Cha type.
The most ambitious piece of
naming comes in "Spring Song,"
arranged by Jane Neracher, which
is listed as an "orchestral elabora-

"My Ideal," by Vinselle Bartlett, is
