Of Last Year
Response to the first day's cam-
paign of the Galens Medical So-,
ciety's annual Christmas drive was
satisfactory, Mark S. Donovan, '35M, ;
president of the society stated yester-
day.
"We will not know definitely, of
course, how the amount collected
this year compares with the, corre-
sponding day of last year," Donovan
said, "until we have made complete
checks. As far as can be determined,
$650 was contributed yesterday."
Donovan explained that it costs
around $1,000 a year to keep up the,
workshop and provide the annual E. WILLIAM DOTY

Evening Performances To
Be Presented Through
Saturday
"Iolanthe," one of the famous Gil-
bert and Sullivan operettas, opens to-
Sight for a four day run in Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre. It is being pre-
sented by Play Production and stu-
dents in the School of Music.
Evening performances will be given
today, tomorrow, Friday, and Satur-
day and a special matinee will also
be given on Saturday. Evening per-
formances are scheduled for 8:30 p.m.
and the matinee for 3:15 p.m.
"Iolanthe" is the second Gilbert and
Sullivan opera to be presented by
Play Production. The first operetta,
"The Gondoliers," was given last
spring before large audiences through-
out its run.
In commenting on the work of
this group in producing operettas,
President Charles A. Sink of the
School of Music made the following1
statement:
'"The work of the music-drama
course inaugurated last year proved
so satisfactory and valuable that it
has been continued and will doubtless
become a permanent feature of the
University.
"It provides music students with an
opportunity for public performance
of a broader and more varied nature
than ordinary student recitals. At the
same time, it provides an opportunity
for the public to hear interesting
operatic works performed in a highly
creditable manner by young musi-
cians of exceptional promise."
"Iolanthe" is under the general di-
rection of Valentine B. Windt. E. Wil-
liam Doty of the School of Music fac-
ulty is the musical director, and Emily
White is in charge of the dance. Mr..
Doty is also conducting the Univer-
sity Symphony Orchestra, which is
furnishing music for the production.
In addition to Miss Seeley, who
plays the title role, other principal1
parts are Peing taken by Clarawanda
Sisson, '36SM, and Henry Austin, as
the lovers; John Silberman, '35, as
the chancellor; Bertha Bright Knapp,'
Spec.SM, as the fairy queen; Mary'
Bills, Grad., and Goddard Light, '35,
as the rival suitors; and Frederick
Shaffmaster, '35, as the sentry. The
entire cast numbers more than 45.

Reichert Is Selected To
Oppose Mann For Prom
Chairman
Freshman Election
Set For Next Week
Electors Must Pay Dues,
Pr e s e n t Identification,
Before Voting
Frederick Buesser, Delta Tau Delta,
and Tom Oyler, Beta Theta Pi, were
chosen last night to run for the office
of president of the sophomore class
in today's election. Eugene Reichert,
independent, will oppose John Mann,
Trigon, for the chairmanship of the
Soph Prom.
The names of the candidates were
selected from a number submitted by
petition by the newly-created Elec-
toral Board made up of Dean Alice
C. Lloyd, Stanley Waltz, manager of
the Union, William Ferris, managing
editor of The Daily, Allen McCombs,
president of the Union, and Carl
Hilty, president of the Undergraduate
Council.
The freshman election, scheduled to
be held today, was postponed until
next week by the Executive Com-
mittee of the Council.
Today's election is the first to be
held under the new plan of voting in
class elections which was approved
after the ballots in the sophomore
election held earlier this year were
thrown out when Council members
termed it "the dirtiest election in
history." The plan was conceived by
George Lawton, president of the sen-
ior class and John Healey, city editor
of The Daily, and was adopted with
only minor changes by the Council.
Although it had been announced
that nine petitions was the minimum
to be submitted for each office, mem-
bers of the Council said last night
that since nine petitions would not
always be available, the names of
candidates would be chosen from
those submitted. They also said that
the names of the candidates are an-
nounced this morning rather than
just before the election because it
is felt that the publicity would bring
out more voters.
Hilty announced last night that
all sophomores in the literary college
wishing to vote must pay their class
dues of 25 cents and show their
treasurer's receipt before they can get
their ballots.
The election in the literary college
will be held at 4:30 p.m. in Natural
Science Auditorium. The freshmen
in the Medical School will vote at
the same time in the amphitheater
of the East Medical Building.
Opera Heads Are
In Blue Funk As
Guppy Vanishes
Union Opera officials late yesterday
admitted they were completely baf-
fled by the mysterious disappearance
of Prof. Carl L. Hubbs' guppy bor-
rowed by the opera to play the star-
ring role of "Challenger."
The missing guppy vanished from
his bowl as it sat on the window sill
of the Union's ballroom getting an
airing after a strenuous rehearsal
yesterday afternoon. A stand-in was
being used for some of the less im-
portant scenes while the guppy star
rested, but when Director Russell Mc-
Cracken ordered 'Challenger' brought
back into rehearsals, the bowl was
unaccountably empty.
Authorities were unable to decide
whether the guppy had been removed

from its bowl, or had escaped because
of the unusually high water level. In
the latter case it might have contin-
ued on down the drain outside the
window sill.
"The show cannot be produced
without "Challenger," Director Mc-
Cracken said in broadcasting an ap-
peal for assistance in the recovery of
the fish. "None of the other guppies
in the cast is competent of portray-
ing 'Challenger.' He must be re-
covered before the opening night."
