Tryots Today
Government Manufaeitre
Of War Munitions To Be
Jiebate Question
Meeting with the tryouts for the
women's debate squad for the first
time this year, Mr. Floyd K. Riley,
coach of the team, will explain the
work at 4 p.m. today, inroom 4006
Angell Tral.
The question for debate this year
will concern the government manu-
facture of munitions of war, a ques-
tion which has been discussed a great
deal recently in connection with the
Senate investigation of the sale of
munitions. The investigation brought
to light a number of problems which
will be considered in the debate ques-
tion.
The team will go to Columbus
to meet Ohio State University, and
will debate Northwestern University
here. Although these two contests
are the only two with conference
teams, numerous other debates will
take place with state squads.
Sometime in December, Mr. Riley
said, a general discussion meeting will
take place with students from Albion
College, and Wayne University. This
meeting will take the form of a ques-
tion and answer discussion, similar to
the Oregon style of debate.
Four women . who participated in
conference debates will be back again
this year, according to Mr. Riley. They
are Dorothy Saunders, '35, Winifred
Bell, '36, Elizabeth Smith, '36, and
Eleanor Blum, '35. Several others who
worked with the squad last year will
also return.
The meeting today will be for all
undergraduates, except freshmen,
who are interested. It will be for pure-
ly explanatory purposes with no try-
outs at this time, Mr. Riley stated.
Sunday Night
Pro aram Held
At Newberry
The social activities of the fall
season at Helen Newberry Residence
began Sunday night with an informal
buffet supper, followed by a musical
program.
* Dorothy MacLaren, '36, social
chairman, presided in the dining
room, and afterwards the party ad-
journed to the parlors. The program
of instrumental music and vocal se-
lections included a string trio, com-
posed of Carla Weimar, '37,'violinist;
Myra Hilpert, '36, celloist; and Mary
Morrison, '38, pianist, playing "Songs
My Mother Taught Me" by Dvorak,
"Nobody Knows the Trouble I See,"
and "The Old Refrain" by Kreisler. A
group of three harp solos were played
by Miss Ruth Pfohl, instructor in the
School of Music. At the close of the
program, a girl's sextet consisting of
Katherine Choate, '36; Ollwynne Wil-
liams, '35; Sylvia Yeh, grad.; Helen
Clark, '35; Mary Morrison, '38; and
RLth Clark, '37, accompanied by
Helen Schwartz, '35, at the piano sang
"Cradle Song" by Brahms, "To a Wild
Rose" by MacDowell, and "Mighty
Like a Rose" by Nevin.
Katherine Choate, '36; and Mary
Morrison, '38, were in charge of the'
program. Among the guests present
were Dean Alice Lloyd, Byrl Fox
Bacher, Miss Jeannette Perry, and
Mrs. S. P. Livingstone of Richmond,
Va.
This entertainmient marked the

first event on the social calendar since
the house has been under the direc-
tion of Miss Ruth Pfohl. Other Sun-
day night programs of this kind are
being planned, and arrangements are
also under way now for the customary
tea dances following football games
and the annual November house
dance.

The First Methodist Church Ladies
Association will honor Mrs. Charles
Brashares, the wife of their new pas-
tor, at a luncheon Thursday at the
Michigan League.
Mrs. Max Blaes is general chair-
man of the affair and Mrs. Carl Smith
is in charge of the program which
will feature vocal numbers.

To Get Background For Plays Late Permissio'n digGf Fr

By RUSSELL McCRACKEN
This is the first of two articles
by the director of Love On the
Riu and Gang's All There in aid
of possible authors of this year's
junior show.
If you want to write a play, you
must make up your mind that you've
got a good, hard job ahead of you.
It is hard to create anything, but
it is especially hard to create a play.
And this is particularly so as far as
a play is concerned, because in writ-
ing a play you can depend Less on,Di-
rect Inspiration than in any other
form. I have known lots of nit-wits
who sat down and out of a clear sky
composed a lyric poem that wasn't too
bad, but I've never known anybody
who could sit down and write a play
out of a clear sky. Of course the rea-
son is that a play is a mighty long
form to write in, and direct inspira-
tion won't last very long. If you start
out to write a play out of the clear
sky and along about the fourth or
fifth page everything gets black and
dreary, you'll know you are writing
by the wrong method. The thing to
do is to throw away the four or five
pages and begin all over again.
To those junior women who are
anxious to get a play out by the first
of November, there will be a lot of
work and little time to do it in. There*
won't be a lot of time to crowd in
very much background in the month
they have, but they should positively
take some time out in this direction.
My remarks in this first article, will
be directed entirely toward what and
how to get this background.
READ WITH CRITICAL
VIEWPOINT
1. Read Plays. Get musical come-
dies if you can and light comedies
that are going over with audiences
Today. Read with a critical point of
view. Try to see howl they are put
together. Note the Plot. Ask your-
self just why each and every charac-
ter has been brought into that plot.
Judge each character as to his truth
to Life and his truth to Stock Type.
Try at every point in your reading;
of the play to Guess what the outcome
of the plot will be. If you can't1
guess until nearly the end it is a good
type of play to remember, that is, of
course, for your purpose in writing,
a popular musical comedy. Make a1
judgment on the playwright's philoso-I
phy-which in comedy is nothing
more than noting the Things atl
Which'He Chooses To Poke Fun. Note
the use of dialogue. Is it literary,
actable, or racy? Note how a patch
of dialogue is put together, how the
playwright Expands a tiny situation
or point in character, how he doesn't
say everything right out quickly, but
plays with and draws out every pos-
sible implication ,a scene may have
in the same manner that the poet
expands his metaphor. Try to get
hold of some plays by Kaufman, Con-
nelly, Noel Coward, MacArthur to
note their method of dialogue. A
Dean Lloyd To Address
Freshmen Tomorrow
Dean Alice C. Lloyd will address
the freshman women at 5 p. m. to-
morrow in the Lydia Mendelssohn
theatre, at the second lecture of the
Orientation series. Her topic will be
"College Conduct."
Roll is taken at these lectures, and
activity points are given for attend-
ance. In accordance with the new
merit system, a record of every wom-
an's points is kept on file at the
League, and will be of utmost impor-
tance to her in the future.

Nobody knew that Bill was going to
get married just yet, not even his
brother Howell, a member of the
freshman class here this year. The
story got out when Bill asked Willis
Johnson, secretary of the Browns, for
some tickets to get himself and his
new wife into the series.
It seems that ball players are always
going to secretaries asking for passes
for sisters, cousins, brothers, and
aunts so when McAfee asked for
World Series tickets, Johnson went
temporarily insane. When he calmed
down Bill explained that he was being
married and he thought that he was
entitled to at least buy a couple of
tickets for the World Series.
McAfee pitched for Michigan in
1927, 1928, and 1929 and in the last
two years they won the Big Ten
championship largely on account of
Bill's pitching. They were so good in
1929 that the whole team made a
baseball tour of Japan.
It seems that Bill and Lillian will
get to see the World Series at any)
rate because Johnson said, "He'll see
that game. That's my wedding pres-
