Play Tryouts
ToBe Monday
Tryouts For Junior Girls
Play To Be Held At Lydia
Mendelsso m Theatre
Tryouts for the cast and chorus
of the Junior Girls Play will be held
tomorrow and Tuesday afternoons in
the Lydia Mendelssohn theatre and
all junior women, whether eligible
this semester or not, are urged to be
present, according to an announce-
ment from Barbara Sutherland, gen-
eral chairman.
To try-out an entrant may give a
brief skit, a tap routine, sing a short
selection, or in any way display her
qualifications. Groups of not more
than three may perform together, if
they desire. Each tryout will be lim-
ited to three or four minutes, Miss
Sutherland said.
The same procedure will be follow-
ed as was used last year, for each
entrant will fill out a card with her
name, telephone number, and her
choice of activity. She will hand
this card to the central committee
when she appears on the stage.
Every house is urged to have all
its juniors p r e s e n t for tryouts,
whether the entrants feel especially
capable or not, for the house will
be credited on the activities chart
with the number who tried out, Miss
Ethel McCormick stated yesterday.
The women selected as cast possi-
bilities during this two-day period
will be informed of the general meet-
.ing to be held Wednesday afternoon
in the League to discuss the play.

'two medical college co-eds at Johns
Hlopkins used ether instead of a
hatchet on their Thanksgiving turkey
last week. When they plucked the
feathers from the bird it revived and
jumped out the kitchen window.


Anticipation of the approaching
holidays seems to have added espe-
cial fervor to the gaiety of this
weekend's dances, for Friday nigh'
almost everyone stopped in for a
moment at one of the numerous fra-
ternity formals.
The opening dance of the Alph
Delt houseparty was the -gathering
place for scores of campus notable.
Friday night. During the earlie
part of the evening we noticed th
ever-popular Mary Stirling and viva-
cious Judy Trosper both keeping th
stag line active. Judy wore a simpl
gown of cream velvet which forme
a lovely contrast to her titian hair.
Bright-eyed Mickey Kessberger was
also "tripping the light fantastic" i
a charming green dress. Rhinestoni
buckle and buttons at the waist drev
attention to Pauline Brooks' gree

A little later the DKE's arrived i
a body and were soon followed b:
droves of Sigma Chis who added t
the already i m p o s i n g stag-line
Chuck R u s h, Ink White, and Jule
Crow, whom we haven't seen aroun
for some time were "among thos
present." Jerry Ford seemed to hav
well survived the Sphinx initiation o
a few days ago.
An unusual coiffure was worn b
Elizabeth Roe, a charming Easter
miss. Her short blond hair was curl-
ed tightly in little ringlets almost t
the crown of her head. The illus-
, trious Betty Tant appeared in o
smart satin, cherry red in shade.
Gold sequins formed the bodice o.
the light green gown worn by Mar-
jorie Landenderfer, while silver one
were used on Mary Thompson's whit
dress. Ann Harsh~a swirled in, gown-
ed in white satin which gave her a
regal appearance.
At the Theta Delt house Mary Mc-
Carthy wore a very becoming apri-
cot gown with long sleeves and but-
toning down the back. Brown fiower
at the neck formed the necessar
contrast. Diminutive Helen Pric
chose a simply cut gown of whit
lace, while Mary Bursley appeared ir
black velvet.
Wine-colored velvet blended warm-
ly with the "peaches and cream'
complexion of Eloise Moore. Mar.
garet Mustard and Marty Bowen ap-
peared later. Marty's red gown had
striking gold sequins about the neck
and shoulders. Lois Altman had on
a black velvet dress with an attrac-
tive loose-fitting jacket.
The Phi Delts entertained Friday
night, too, and among the many at-
tractive guests present was noticed
brunette Francis O'Dell in black

The b 10an d braids of Katherine
Thompson were also set off to ad-
vantage by her black gown.
Nedra Alexander chose a dress,
reminiscent of the knights and ladies,
made of a pastelfiowered taffeta.
Then there was red-headed Betty
Ann Beebe also. Janet Jackson wore
a semi-formal green velvet of the
popular "hunter" shade with a wide
gold belt. Virginia Nimmo and Dor-
othy Wilson appeared in black; the1
former was contrasted with a white
top, and the latter had a wide band
of brilliants forming the low neckline
in .front and back.
*~ * *
The SAE's held a formal dinner
party that was also well-attended.
Mary Edna Travis, of the soft South-
ern drawl, was becomingly gowned in
a white dinner dress with a slit back
and open sleeves. Margaret Beckett,
active in the League, also chose
white, but her gown featured the
popular "angel wings."
Royal purple satin and a sparkling
tiara seemed especially fitting for the
stately Isabell Kanter. Dotty Ham-
mersley wore a lovely green and gold
combination with shoes in gold to
complete the effect.
Light and dark shades, velvet and
crepe were impartially chosen for the
formal gowns worn at the Delta Tau
Delta dance Friday. Mary Ferris
wore a peach dress of sheer velvet,
and Georgina Karlson also chose
peach, but in crepe. Virginia Ulrich,
recently of Gargoyle "Sophisticated
Lady" fame, wore light blue with a
contrasting jacket of mulberry, with
mulberry slippers to further carry
out the color scheme. Jean Perry
furnished the necessary black and
white note.
Two Betsy Barbourites were seen,
Mary Margaret Campbell, in white
crinkly crepe, and Barbara Spalding,
in light blue satin accented by bril-
liant clips.
Sorority rushing during the first
quarter of the fall semester was
blamed for the low scholastic average
of women students at the University
of Minnesota.

New Accessories
To Brighten Dark
Winter Ensembles
It is just about this time during
the year when suddenly all the nice
wool dresses you bought confidently'
earlier in the season seem distastefulI
and drab. Then is the time for re-I
juvenation - a little thought, plus
a little pique or wool can do wonders.
Neckwear, for instance, has all the
qualities that go to brighten one's
deadest dress. The hand-knit ones
especially are a boon to the hard-
working college girl because they can
be laundered in a minute the night
before to look fresh the next day,
and no ironing required. Some of
them in plain white yarn manage to
look like that wonderful thick Irish
lace that grandmother used to wear.
Some of them come in fuzzy angora
and are soft and light to the touch.
White is always right for collars
and cuffs but some of them in bright
colors are clever too and can change
the whole appearance of your frock.
One set we noticed in red velveteen
had a wide round collar and a bib ef-
fect, the cuffs were high, almost to
the elbow, and clasped with little'
glass buttons. Instead of the cuffs
one set offered red velvet gauntlets.

In contrast to the effective 1910
atmosphere of the Sophomore Cab-
aret, the smartest and most modern
in formals were seen on the dance-
floor and Midway Friday night.
Margaret Hiscock, general chair-
man, wore a white crepe, with shoul-
der flounces and brilliants. Dorothy
Schwarze, assistant chairman, set off
her blonde hair with a lovely light
blue satin gown. Black velvet, re-
lieved by a white satin flower and
rhinestone clips was the choice of
Winifred Bell, social chairman. Vi-
vacious Julia Kane, who, as enter-
tainment chairman, was responsible
for the successful floor show, wore
bright orange crepe with a high neck
in front and low decolletage.
White crepe was chosen by Betty
Rich, finance chairman, and Jane
Fletcher of the entertainment com-
mittee. Miss Rich's was simply cut,
the belt ornamented by a rhinestone
buckle, a n d Miss Fletcher's had
straps crossing in the back, with a
bright red flower at the waist.
Betty Chapman, costume chair-
man, wore midnight blue velvet, with
a long row of buttons down the back,
and Rosanna Manchester, another
member of the entertainment staff,
appeared in pale blue angelskin with
tiny puffed sleeves. Hilda Kirby, in
