several songs sung by the Freshman
Girls' Glee Club, and selections from
the Junior Girls' Play of both this
year and last.

large representation from the dormi-

tend the banquet. All reservations
that are made at this tirhe will fa-
cilitate seating arrangements, ac-
cording to Miss Carpenter.
Theta Chi announces the pledging
of Paul Iranz, '37E, Buffalo, N.Y.

Many Universities
Submit Plans Fo r
Architets' Exhibit
Utilitarianism is the key-note of
modern architecture one soon dis-
covers on viewing the plans and de-
signs submitted in the current archi-
tectural exhibit by students from the
member schools of the Association of
Collegiate Schools of Architecture.
Buildings are laid out on simple plans
in the interests of ease of approach
and facility of movement.
Among the student drawings dis-
played in the third floor exhibition
room of the Architectural Building.
are plans . for a radio broadcasting
station, banks, city and country resi-
dences, monuments, a mausoleum,
and churches. A design for a Span-
ish Grill is done with a lively execu-
tion of the details and intricacies of
wrought iron. A Mayan Frontispiece
imparts, a sense of exotic orientalism
with its warm browns and dusty
greens borrowed from the deserts and
the hills. Designed in the true mod-
ern spirit is the modernistic Ferry
Wharf, planned to incorporate a
minimum of structure with a maxi-
mum of lighting.
In these modern buildings, there is
little that is ornate or complex. Fac-
ades are practically devoid of deco-
rative details, lines are long and un-
Equestrians To
Participate I
n 1
Final tryouts for the recently or-
ganized riding club, The Crop and
Saddle, will be held this afternoon at
the Fair Grounds, according to Jane
Brucker, '35, riding manager of,
W.A.A. Those students interested in'
attending will meet at 4 p.m. at the
League. Guy Mullison will drive them
to his stables.
Thirty-five women have already
participated in tryouts and the quota
for membership is only 25. Further
tryouts are being held today so as
not to exclude those persons with
equestrian skill who were unable to go
Captain Arthur B. Custis and Ada
Moyer, '35, will judge. Mounting, dis-
mounting, saddling, bridling, chang-
ing leads as well as other points in
horsemanship will be included in the,
trials. Miss Brucker urges every one-
interested in riding to try out as the
Club will be the center of riding
activities. Non-members will not be
permitted to enter the spring horse

Instead of a supreme menace, the
talkies turned out to be a blessing in
disguise for the legitimate theatre
because the movie industry can now
take care of all the musical comedies
of the leg show type, leaving the more
worthwhile type of play to the true
stage, according to Russell McCrack-
en, of the Play Production faculty.,
Directing Movie Satire
Now directing a satire on the movie
industry, "Once in a Lifetime" which
will open tomorrow night, in the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre, Mr. Mc-
Cracken has been interested in the ef-I
fect of the talkies on the legitimate
stage, ever since people first leaned
forward in their seats to see if the
voices were actually synchronized
with the lip movement, way back in
At that time it was predicted that
talkies would eventually supplant the
legitimate stage, and indeed for the
past few years, the stage has not
been very successfully financially but
this corresponds to the depressions
in other industries, and therefore
cannot be regarded as the effect of
the movies. Through the fact that the
movies have taken over some of the
cheaper, less thoughtful functions of'

the stage, more attention can now be
given to plays featuring the "folk,"
and scientific attitude, and to tre-
mendous farce, instead of merely sup-
plying popular demand.
Satirizes Hollywood
"Once in a Lifetime," by George
Kaufman and Moss hart, satirizes
the attempts of the producers to
supply this popular demand, and al-
though it was written in 1929 when
the talkies first came in, it is just
as applicable today. Kaufman knew
his Hollywood, having spent some
time there under contract, after
which he himself said that he did
nothing at all and got paid for it.
Some time later he wrote the satire,
"Once In a Lifetime."
As produced by Play Production,
"Once in a Lifetime" will illustrate
one of the newer tendencies of the
legitimate theatre, in which the play
is now being stressed as the important
thing, rather than being guised mere-
ly as a vehicle to display the talents
and temperament of those in the
leading roles. This stress on plot with
a definite problem is illustrated by
the plays which have appeared re-
cently in New York, notably, "Of
Thee I Sing," also by Kaufman.
