Mc CrCeklt Is
Selected To Be
Atinual Class Productilon
To Be Presented The
week Of March 17
Announcement was made yester-
day that Rusell McCracken has sign-
ed the contract to direct the coming
production of the Junior Girls' play,
which will be presented the week of
March 17.
This will be the third J.G.P. that
Mr. McCracken has directed in ad-
dition to his work with the Chil-
dren's Theater, the Union Opera,
Sophomore Cabaret, Play- Production,
and the Repertory Players. As a de-
parture from his usual type of pro-
ductions, he directed an old-time
drama, "All for Love," for the Nell
Gwyn Players this fall.
Mr. McCracken was graduated
from the University in 1932 and is
not so far removed from his college
days that he does not get as much
fun from the plays he directs as the
students in the cast. While an un-
dergraduate he worked on scenery
for Play Production and Comedy
Club and was stage manager for the
Repertory Players for three sum-
Itn discussing the Junior Girls'
Play, Mr. McCracken stated that
though it provides a great deal of
enjoyment for the large group of
Juriior women participating, it also
has a definite educational value, be-
cause of the many responsibilities
for those involved.
There is the financial responsibili-
ty which rests upon the members of
the central committee as well as the
responsibility, shared by every wo-
man in the cast, to give a good pro-
dudtion for the audience.
In addition, the technical instruc-
tion given the author, the writers of
music and lyrics, and the members
of the class who plan scenery and
costumes is worth many hours of
classroom work in similar subjects.
Formal Dance
Honors Actives
Of Pi Beta Phi
Pledges of Pi Beta Phi sorority en-
tertained last night with a dance hon-
oring the active members of the sor-
ority. The theme of the dance was an
unusual one, presenting the idea of
"'June in January."
Decorations were in keeping with
the idea. Green and yellow were used
extensively in the color scheme in
addition to summer flowers. Programs
wore in the same colors, and refresh-
ments carried out the idea still fur-
thei. Chaperones were Mr. and Mrs.
Herbert H. Upton, Mr. and Mrs. E.
William Doty, and Mrs, .Elsie House-
wald. The chairman in charge of ar-
ra tgements was Amelia Martin, '36.
Ruth Ann Chr~ist4, isen wore black
tafseta, while Ann Osborn, retiring
pr rsident, was dressed in green lace
trimmed in peach. Betty Scherling,
president-elect of the house, was
gowned in blue, the dress having nar-
row rhinestone shoulder straps. Vir-
giiia Hartz wore plaid taffeta, arid
Marian Dixon chose blue peau d'ange
satin as the fabric for her gown.
Seen at the Silver Grill last night
was Dorothy Shutt who wore a velvet
dress combining a printed top with a
brown skirt. Dorothy Qeldart also
chose velvet in black with white fur
trin and a matching white turban.

Dorothy Anderson appeared in a
blule crepe tunic dress decorated with
a silver band at the neck. Mary Fitz-
patrick wore a jacket dress of light
