plants that banked the walls of the
League ballroom, the Grand March

Last night's dance was the first ball
ever sponsored by non-affiliated wom-

hellenic Ball does for sorority women.

Last Play Of Season
Wardens of the Nell Gwyn's Com-
pany of Players have sent out invi;
tations for the last presentation of
the season, "Engaged," a farcical
comedy by W. S. Gilbert, to be given
this Monday, at the Lydia Mendel-
"Engaged" was first produced in
1877 at the Haymarket Theatre, Lon-
don as an entirely original comedy.
It was one of Gilbert's earliest mas-
terpieces which may be characterized
as a Gilbert and Sullivan opera with-
out Sullivan and without music. Gil-
bert wrote "Engaged" before his col-
,)oration with Sullivan. and Oscar
Wilde acknowledged the fact that it
was a masterpiece by stealing liberally
fromi the play for "The Importance
of Being Earnest."
The Nell Gwyn's company of play-
ers is composed of faculty members
and townspeople organized solely for
the purpose of reviving forgotten mas-
terpieces of the English and American
stage. "Engaged" will be the 11th pro-
duction of the organization to con-
clude its fifth successive season. Prof.
Howard Mumford Jones of the Eng-
lish department, director of the last
play, "Love for Love" by Congreve,
also will direct the production of
"Engaged." The Nell Gwyn's Com-
pany has produced such 18th and
19th century plays as "Beaux Stra-
tgem" by Farquar, "She Would If She
Could" by Etheredge, "Fashion" by
Mrs. Cora Mowett, and "The London
Merchant" by George Lillo.
The cast selected to play the roles
in "Engaged" consists of Professor
Jones, Karl Litzenberg, Robert Adams,

out light. And there is a proper amount of light
for every seeing task. Of course, you could read
by the light of an open fireplace. But it strains
vision and does much more damage than our
eyes tell us. The few simple rules which follow
form a good guide to adequate home lighting.
In the table or floor lamp next to )our easy
chair, you should have correct size lamp bulbs
-."WAT'TS." If it is a three-socket lamp, there
should be 40 watts in each socket; if a two-
socket lamp, 60 watts in each socket; if a one.
socket lamp, 100 watts. All lamps in your house
should have SHADES to prevent GLARE.
Whenever possible, use shades with light-col-
ored linings to get the most light. (Wide shades,
open at the top, are best.) Finally, have at least
one-tenth as much light in the rest of the room as
you have on your book, newspaper, sewing, etc.
