"Dr. Knock," the French farce'
xhich Play Production presents this
week, is a complete departure from'
the conventional ways of achieving
comic effects in that the scenery and
properties are an important part

actually participate in the action of,
the play. Like "Green Pastures"
there is a moving lanscape, but in
that play no comedy was attempted,
the moving scenery merely giving
a simple charm to the scene, while
the sets in "Dr. Knock" are movedj

to town Friday night for the first
Assembly Ball, began his musical life
at the age of ten when an old battered
cornet turned up in the attic of his
Newark, N. J., home. It was the start-
ing point of a career that culmin-
ated in baton-wielding for one of the
best-known orchestras in America.
For days little Charlie puffed away
in secret without producing the sug-
gestion of a toot. Suddenly in the
middle of a quiet Sunday afternoon
a terrific blast burst from the trum-
pet, and his father, startled out of a
sound sleep, bounded up the attic
stairs. Instead of a spanking, how-
ever, Mr. Agnew proceeded to initiate
his son into the mysteries of cornet-
playing.
The Agnews were a musical family,
and presented the lad with a brand
new instrument on his graduation
from grammar school. For four years
he played with his high school band,
and ii his last year he joined the or-
chestra of a local band leader. After
that Charlie embarked on a regular
musical profession, playing often with
such bands as Vincent Lopez', Charlie
Strickland's, and Dell Lampe's. With
the latter, he came to Chicago, play-

For Prominence At
Week-End Dances
Only one chapter house entertained
with a dance Friday night, but couples
danced at the League Silver Grill
in spite of the Sophomore Prom.
Virginia Minsker, president of Al-
pha Xi Delta sorority, chose a peach
crepe gown with a halter neck and
train for the house dance. Kitty
Rucker's white crepe formal was cut
on severe lines and trimmed with
rhinestones. Gold sequins ornament-
ed the green crepe dress worn by Ruth
Rowell. Jerry Joyce was seen in
peach crepe with fur trim on the jack-
et. A wide rhinestone belt was the
feature of the pink crepe formal worn
by Jean Friederici.
In contrast to the pastel shades
worn at the Alpha Xi Delta house,
dark shades were predominant at the
Silver Grill. Nan Diebold wore a
tailored frock of black crepe. White
ruffle trimming accentuated the black
dress worn by Wilma Bernhard,
Winifred Arnold chose a white bodice
to wear with a black crepe skirt. Mar-
jorie Turner's striped frock had blue,
red and black predominating. Vir-
ginia Snell wore a silver lame tunic
over a black skirt.
