Atractions Are
Announced For
Frosh Project
Russ Lyons' Orchestra To
Play; Old Heidelberg
Theme Of Decorati is
Russ Lyons and his orchestra have
been selected to play for the Mardi
Gras ball to be given from 9 to 1 a.m.,
May 3, by the freshmen women in the
League, as their annual freshman
project. Lyons will come here directly
from the Claridge in Memphis, Tenn.
Previous to his engagement at the
Claridge, Lyons completed a sccessful
season at the Oriole Terrace in De-
Lyons, who is a graduate of Ohio
University, has played in various or-
chestras. With his own orchestra he
has played at the Mayfair in Cleve-
land, and broadcasted frequently over
Station WTAM.
Lyons is only one of the many
attractions being planned by the proj-
ect committees. Unusual decorations
to fit in with the spirit of the Mardi
Gras will transform the League ball-
room into a splendour of color. En-
tertainment by the tap and tango
choruses, features by the freshmen
trio, and solo numbers will be a part
of the program.
Contrary to previous announce-
ments, the entire Mardi Gras will take
place in the evening, instead of both
afternoon and evening. The Grill of;
the League will be transformed into
Old Heidelberg and music will also
be featured there.
The main event of. the evening will
be the coronation of the May Queen,,
a senior woman. The identity of the,
successful caididate will be kept sec-
ret until she is selected from among
the dancers at the Mardi Gras. Vot-
ing for the women who have been
nominated will begin Tuesday when.
the first ballot will appear in The
Daily. Students are reminded that
nominations for these candidates must
be in before Monday noon. Any stu-
dent may nominate a senior woman
by handing in the name of that senior
to Miss Ethel McCormick at the
League or Theresa Swab at The Daily.

Easter Season In Jerusalem Is,
Pictured By Prof. Waterman

Easter in Jerusalem is not just one
day as here but a season during
which religious ceremonies of three
faiths, Jewish, Moslem and Christian,
take place, according to Prof. Leroy
Waterman, head of the department
of Oriental languages and literature.
During the course of a month the
Jewish feast of the Passover is ob-
served, Arabs hold their annual Mos-
lem pilgrimage to Nebi Musa, and
at least four different Easter days
are observed by various denomina-
tions among the Christians.
The Moslem pilgrimage to Nebi
Musa, which is the name of the sup-
posed burial place of Moses, a proh-
phet in Islam as well as Christianity,
originally had very little religious
significance. When the Turks al-
lowed Christians to enter Jerusalem,
the Sultan felt the need of a gather-
ing of Arabs to conteract the large
number of pilgrims who flocked to1
the Holy City during the Easter per-
iod. The Nebi Musa pilgrimage was
the result.
The ceremony of Nebi Musa is a
wild and picturesque affair. Arabs
from all the neighboring villages
gather in Jerusalem where a large
procession is formed which slowly
winds through the city to the desert.
Each village group has a leader who
calls out spontaneous poetic utteranc-
es which are repeated by the group.
Spasmodically throughout the march
the participants dance madly slash-
ing themselves with knives.
Of all the Easter services of the
Christians, that of the appearance of
the Holy Fire held by the Greek Or-
thodox Church in the Church of the
Holy Sepulcher is the most colorful
and spectacular.
Outsiders must secure permits
from the British Counsel to be admit-
ted to the church to view the event.
Crowds throng the church and court
outsida, some even spencling the'

night in the church to be sure of a
good place.
The ceremony consists of the Or-
thodox Patriarch entering the edicule
enclosing the tomb where it is be-
lieved he receives the Holy Fire
through prayer. The moment the
flame is received the crowd surges
forward and the many candles are
lit at the fire.
On Maundy Thursday the feat of
brilliantly robed priests impersonat-
ing the disciples are washed by the
patriarch and on the Roman Catholic
Good Friday the Russian Catholic
Church holds a procession along the
Via Dolaroas symbolizing Christ car-
rying the cross along the Via Dolor-
For the duration of the month at
Easter time a one week visit is sure
to include at least one procession or
ceremony of a religious nature.

GREENE'S consider it a real achievement to offer
this exclusive new fur storage opportunity just as
you are ready to put your furs away for the summer
months. Such a service should prove most welcome.
Furs Cleaned the Way Your Furrier Recommends

GREENE'S have engaged the facilities of one of the
most modern Refrigerated Fur Storage Vaults in this
part of the country. Here, for a small cost, you may
have your furs cleaned the way your furrier cleans
them, then stored deep away in the recesses of the
only practical storage vaults . . . Refrigerated Cold
Storage. This service is then further covered against
moths, fire, and thieves by Insurance in "Travelers,"
the largest company in the world. If you wish to get
the longest wear and smartest appearance from your
fur coats use GREENE'S new service. It will pay
you well.

SPECIAL TO STUDENTS- Green's, realizing the
inconvenience of taking your furs and fur coats home
after each winter and then loading yourselves with
them when you come back in the fall, are now in
position to rmake the fur coat problem a thing of the
past. Their plan is very simple. You simply leave
your furs (or any other winter garment) with
GREENE'S sormetime before you leave for the summer.
During the summer they will receive the most
advanced service known to science in both cleaning
and storage; and will be ready to be delivered to you
when you return for the fall semester.
