Play Production Show
The cast for "Once in a Lifetime,"
Play Production show to be given this

clude five principal roles to be played
by Sally Pierce, '35, John Silberman,
'34, Jack Nestle, '34, Charlotte Whit-
man, '35SM, and Goddard Light, '35.
"Once in a Lifetime," by George
Kaufman and Moss Hart, is a fast
moving farce on life in the great
movie capital, at the time of the
great panic when the talkies were first
introduced. Bound to succeed in this
environment, "where all dumb peo-
pl get along well," is the magnetic,
good-natured, and lovable but dumb
young vaudeville actor, played by
Miss Pierce, whose last major role
on campus was that of Elizabeth in
"Elizabeth the Queen," appears .as
the wholesome vaudeville actress
whose common-sense makes her the
brains of the voice culture company
which she forms with Light and Sil-
berman. Silberman plays the role of
the actor in his early thirties who
has spent the major part of his late
twenties in concocting one scheme or
another to get himself and his friends
out of vaudeville and into Big Money.
Miss Whitman, who had the fem-
inine lead in this year's Junior Girls
Play, appears as Susan, the ingenue
who rises from the extra ranks
through the efforts of Light, who fails
to see how very, very bad. her acting
is because of his infatuation. The
director Glogauer, in charge of these
various characters, will be taken by,
Nestle. Characteristically, Glogauer.

To Be Held April 27


Guests at the Military Ball on Fri-I
day evening, April 27, will be treated
to something novel in the way of mar-
tial decorations, according to Don W.
Lyon, '34A, graduate member and
chairman of the decorations com-
mittee. Lyon will be assisted by Don-
ald C. Anderson, '34A, who designed,
the Slide Rule dance decorations this
Present plans call for more elabo-
rate decorations than heretofore at-
tempted at Military Balls on the
Michigan campus. In attempting
to break away froi the more or' less
traditional decorations of previous
years, the committee has decided on
a scheme never before attempted in
the Union ballroom.
The plan calls for a combination of
the decorative features with the col-
ored light system employed in the
ballroom. The entire color scheme
will be worked out to harmonize with
any one of the rapidly changing col-
ored lights, thus producing a great
number of varied effects.
In honor of the visiting officers who
are here for a two weeks' "refresher".
course, each of the branches of the
army will be represented in the deco-
rations. The feature point of the
decorations will probably be kept
veiled until the start of the march
of the sabers, which is scheduled for.
There are still a few tickets avail-
able, which may be pocured at the
Union, R.O.T.C. Headquarters, Bal-
fours', or from the Committee.
Word has been received from
Washington that Major and Mrs. Ba-
sil D, Edwards will be here for the
Ball. Major Edwards, who left the
campus last fall after heading the lo-
cal R.O.T.C. for four years, is now in
the office of the Assistant Secretary of
War in Washington.

'Adelia Cheever
Wins Prize Forj
Adelia Cheever house won first
prize of a silver cup for the most
original booth at Penny Carnival held
in Barbour gymnasium last night.
It was called "The Mad Hatter Tea

ing Alice, the Hatter, the Rabbit, and
the Dormouse. The refreshments at
the booth were pink lemonade and
Delta Zeta sorority was awarded
honorable mention for their repro-
duction of John Dillinger in the "Dix-
ie Pen." A model cell was construct-
ed, and a living model of the notor-
ious criminal, complete with tradi-
tional stripes and ball and chain, sat
inside whittling 'a pistol. The uni-.
formed guards outside the cell were!
vending Dixie cups of ice cream.
The booths this year showed both
variety and ingenuity. Fortune-tell-
ing, grab-bags, fish ponds, and every
kind of game were featured. The
Alpha Phis shined shoes for one cent
an inch, and Sorosis advertised the
first sale of "beer east of Division
street." Another novelty this year
was the slot machines with candy
bars for prizes. Helen Newberry dor-
mitory gave away kisses for pinning
the tail on the pig.
A prize of a two-pound box of can-
dy will be given to the booth making
the most money. The Carnival is an
annual affair, the proceeds of which
