This is the first time that success

Knit Your Own' Is
Byword 9t Smart
And Thrifty Co-ed
Knitted wear seems to be steadily
gaining in popularity. For those who
awaken seemingly in the middle of
the night, to trudge to those bleak
eight o'clocks, nothing is more con-
soling than to slip into a wooly swea-
And everyone is "knitting her own."
Knitting doesn't take time. It saves
time. Since one can attend meetings,
rest, "bull," and knit at the same time,
it is truly a balm to the conscien-
tious. And there is such a great sat-
isfaction in actually wearing what one
makes herself. The more ambitious
and practiced co-eds have taken it up
on a larger scale. They are not only
knitting sweaters, but entire suits
or charming two-piece or one-piece
Because this is football season, and
the bleachers are never steam-heated,
ma ny enthusiasts have adopted that
original idea of knitting their own
scarfs, mitts, and berets. Knitted ap-
parel is extremely durable and very
good-looking. Don't waste time, keep
warm, and pick up all your stitches
since "a stitch in time saves nine."

Smart Sportswear
To Be Popular At
First Game Today
Today is the day we have been an-
ticipating for more than two weeks,
the day we've been hoping the weath-
er would be perfect for that we might
wear our choicest spectator sport
clothes. The next game here is two
weeks hence and beyond a doubt it
will be time for far heavier garb - so
now is our chance.
The best choice for the game will
be a heavy twin-sweater outfit with
a plaid skirt, a brimmed hat, espe-
cially if our tickets demand that we
sit on the east side of the stadium, pig
skin gloves, and heavy low-heeled
Another equally suitable choice of
garb might be the swagger suit. Prob-
ably we shall have to carry the coat or
slip it off during the game because
the late afternoon sun has a tendency
to be very warm.
Be sensibly dressed for this game
because the walk to the field demands
a comfortable shoe. Be smartly
dressed since it is still warm enough
that we needn't bundle up. And if
the storm clouds gather be certain
to carry a rubber cape or a slicker.
Nothing can be more discouraging
than to ruin the fur on a new coat
or to spot a felt hat.

Gang's All There" in aid of possible
authors of this year's junior show.
Ii you have followed the hints about
getting a background (c.f. article in
Tuesday's issue of The Daily), you are
undoubtedly now in a position to sit
down and whip off the great Amer-
ican drama, or at least the greatest)
J.G.P. in the thirty-odd years of its
existence. There are, however, a few
things you should keep in mind when
sitting down to write this play of
1. As to Subject Matter. Don't
have any preconcieved ideas as to
what kind of a show the central com-
mittee is out to get. Last year the
committee felt that the college theme
in J.G.P.'s had been worked to death,
and got a show about "nobody who
ever went to school." But that is no
reason that this year's committee feels
that away. If you have a good idea
for a college show, don't throw it away
for some second class idea. Remember,
one of the funniest shows in New York
last year did things with the college
plot we didn't know could be done. On
the other hand, if you have a good
idea for a show not about college,
don't squelch it. Remember the stu-
dent today is no longer collegian, he
is vitally interested in affairs outside
his campus world, and you might be a
wise playwright indeed to reflect this
interest in your play. Whatever your
subject matter, write it with an eye
to the popular campus audience of to-
day, and the Committee is (all for
Beware Of Satire
II. Beware of this sort of play. Ex-
ample: You are looking around for
an unusual idea for a play. Mars is an
unusual idea. You could be modern
about Mars, because nobody knows
anything about it. Odd costumes. Ex-
travadgantscenery. Girl from earth
gets stranded up there. Thing to be a
grand burlesque and satire on all
things of this our capitalistic world
- The thing to beware of in a play
of this sort is, it has no plot. And
people who go to the theatre, for the
sort of play you are writing, like sat-
ire, burlesquing, extravagance, but
they like it, all subservient to good
plot. Extravagance alone is the rea-
ichigan Co-ed
Becomes Bride
Miss Mary Paul, daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. George Paul, will become the
bride of Mr. Lawrence Frederick Rat-
terman, '34, son of Mr. and Mrs. L. F.
Ratterman, at a very simple fall wed-
ding at 9:30 this morning in St.
Thomas church. The ceremony will
take place at low mass and Father
Babcock will officiate.
Miss Paul has chosen Miss Clar-
ibel Ratterman, sister of the groom,
for her only attendant. Mr. Patrick
Ratterman will assist his brother as
best man.
For her wedding, Miss Paul has se-
lected a charming blue crepe model,
and will carry an arm bouquet of Jo-
hanna Hill roses, tied with tulle in
fall colors. Miss Ratterman will wear
a Spanish tile dress trimmed with
mink. Her tailored gown will be set
off by an arm bouquet of French
marigold and baby breath. Both the
bride's and groom's mothers have
chosen morning dresses of black and
Following the ceremony, there will
be a wedding breakfast for the family
at the Paul residence on Shadford
Rd. After a motor trip through Ten-
nessee and Kentucky, the couple will
be at home in Cincinnati. Miss Paul
was affiliated with Collegiate Sorosis

sorority and Mr. Ratterman was a1
member of Beta Theta Pi.

ing worse. Razzing and splendor are
most successful when they are inci-
dental rather than fundamental to
a show.
Be Simple, Direct
III. Don't be too afraid of being
Trite. It is better to be trite, simple,
direct, to use stock characters thrh
try the extremes of originality. A
simple plot, simply handled, with con-
ventional characters, makes a pretty
good musical show. Because the first
thing about a musicl =how is -it
should move. The complication should
be in music, dancing, and satire not
in story and character. One should be
on the lookout for clever and surprise
twists for one's story, but one
shouldn't make a play out of these
two things alone.
IV. Make your dialogue actable.'
Think of how it will sound when
spoken aloud.
Shun "Gag Humor"
V. Try to let your humor spring
from your plot and characters, and
let it be situation humor and charac-
ter humor. Shun gag humor as you
would the devil. Even at it's best it
isn't any good. It is the lowest con-
ceivable trick of playwriting, even if
Shakespeare did indulge in it.
VI. Don't worry too much about
how music and dancing will fit into
your play. Spend this time worrying
about, and improving your haracters,
plot, and dialogue.
VII. Write your play in as many
acts and scenes as you want to, but
remember the best span of attention
for the audience is from twenty to
thirty minutes.
