J.G.P. Premiere
Is To Be Given
Next Wednesday
Seniors Will Be Present At
Opening Performance
According To Tradition
In beeping'with a 30-year-old tra-
dition, "Gang's All There" will be pre-
sented a week from tonight to the
senior women as the 1935 Junior Girls
Play, Barbara Sutherland, chairman,
At this performance the senior
women, members of the faculty, and
prominent students, upon invitation,
will be present. The play will have
its public premiere Thursday night,
for it is only since 1923 that the jun-
ior women have held more than the
one performance.
The advance sale of tickets for the
performances March 21, 22, 23 and 24
has been excellent, Hilda Kirby, fi-
nance chairman stated, a fact which,
is partially due to the reduction in
prices. The seats for evening perform-
ances are being sold at 75 cents and
$1 with a few seats at $1.50. The
box office of the League is open
from noon until 8 p.m. for reserva-
tions, she stated.
The Junior Girls Play is one of the
oldest of campus traditions, but with-
in the last five years it has become
more than a class function and has
been developing into a more finished
musical production.
"Gang's All There" is carrying an1
the tradition of a jmiior function by
limiting all committees and cast to
eligible .unior women. They are being
assisted, likewise, in making this play
modern and unusual in plot and stag-
ing, by Russell McCracken, director,
and by Bob Steinle and his Union
Band. Several of the members of the
band, who are already known for
their arrangements and compositions,
are the composers of numerous pieces
for the play.
Cast Of Gondoibers

Several principals of the Gilbert
and Sullivan opera, "The Gondoliers,"
which is to be given March 28, 29,

Michigan broadcasting station.
As a result of this tryout, the

Librarian Backc
At Desk After
European Trip
Back at his desk after a six-week
European trip, Dr. William W. Bish-
op, librarian, recently told some of
the highlights of the journey during
which he and Mrs. Bishop visited
Italy, Switzerland, and England. The
Bishops returned last week-end to
Ann Arbor.
In Rome, Dr. and Mrs. Bishop had
a half-hour audience with the Pope.
Dr. Bishop also consulted with of-
ficers of the Vatican Library. "I was
greatly impressed with the progress
made in repairing the disaster of two
year ago to the Vatican's library,"
he said, "and with the new arrange-
ments of the reading room." Five
former University s t u d e n t s now
working in the Vatican gave a dinner
for the Bishops.
The purpose of the trip was pri-
marily for Dr. Bishop to attend
meeting of the Library Planning

Berne, Switzerland, also.
"Great Britain has experienced a
remarkable development in the last
five years in its library service to
rural counties," he said. "The Eng-
lish have improved on anything of
the sort that we have here. Every
county in Great Britain, except one,
has library service. It is a tremen-
dous system."
In England the Bishops visited Ox-
ford and Cambridge. During their
stay in London, they were guests of
officials of the British Museum and
of the Directors of the London SchoolI
of Librarianship.
