Floor For Number
Final plans and the complete cast for
the floor show of the Sophomore Cab-
aret, to be held Friday and Satur-
day, Dec. 13 and 14, in the ballroom
of the League, were announced yes-
terday by Mary Kelkenny, '38, chair-
man of the entertainment committee.
The cabaret is to be held during
the afternoon and evening of both
days. At the afternoon performance
the floor show will begin at 4:15 p.m.
and in the evening at 10:45 p.m.
In direct keeping with the theme
of the cabaret, . which is centered
around the activity of a Grand Cen-
tral station, the numbers in the floor
show will consist of people who are
about to board the train for the
The first number will be a chorus
of redcaps, who will do a tap dance,
preceding the entrance of the train
itself. The chorus will be comprised
of Dorothy Cloudman, Mary John-
son, Dorothy Love, Betty Ronal, Ruth
Sauer and Edith Chubb.
Special Train To Enter
Immediately following the comple-
tion of this number, a special traii
will enter the ballroom and proceed
around the floor, coming to a stop
at the left of the orchestra stand,
and a group of specially trained soph-
omore girls, the majority of them
members of the Stanley Chorus, will
enter, dressed as college men and
women, and sing the theme song of
the cabaret. Words for the song
were composed especially for the
cabaret by Ann Timmons, '36, and
will be sung to one of the popular
tunes of the day.
After this song, the chorus will
board the train, and Hope Hartwig,
Marie Sawyer and Marjorie Coe will
enter dressed as hoboes. They will
do a novel tap dance to the accom-
paniment of the singing by the
women already on the train of "I've
Been Workin' on the Railroad."
Miss Fingerle To Sing
Following this Marlene Fingerle,
dressed as the train's engineer, will
sing "Sweet and Slow."
Mary Kelkenny will appear next as
a travelling salesman and do a cane
tap dance. After she has finished,
she will board the train, which will
start on its second trip around the
ballroom, apparently carrying its
passengers to the Soph Cabaret. For
the grand finale, all of the passengers

New Gadgets Solve Problem Of
CAP AND SCARF SETS,
Christmas Presents For ilen Are Scheduled
Question Of What To
Is Easily Answered
The time of year is drawing near
when all we feminine folk begin to
wonder what we can dig up to make
Christmas a little merrier for father,
brother, cousin or fiance. It's quite
a problem at times, particularly as'
men are always reticent about giving
us any ideas or tip-offs as to whether
they would prefer gloves, socks or
handkerchiefs. But you can always
bet on these three as a safe gamble
if you can't think of anything else...
Scarfs are always a good guess too.,
But this year, one has ample op-,
portunity to discover really original
presents. If you have an idea for
brightening up a room or making it;
more convenient, something on the
order of an "occasional" table would
be just the thing. It may be made;
of chromium, the center providing
an ash receiver.
Gadgets are Suggested
Two gadgets, which would make
any man consider you a marvel of
thoughtfulness, are a chromium tie-
holder and shoe-rack. The tie-holder
is adjustable in width and depth,
while the shoe-rack has an ingenious
arrangement which keeps the toes
from becoming scuffed.
Then there are all manner of trick
affairs to delight a whimsical taste.
"Night-Light" pencil, with a little
light on the end, would be a god-
send to anyone subject to poetic in-
spirations, while waiting to go to
sleep. The "Hoot-Owl," a bronze
business, which serves as corkscrew,
bottle-cap opener and screw driver,
would be a handy implement for your
man- about-town type. "Smokstak"
is the only thing for an inveterate
smoker. It's a decorative box which
contains tins of flat fifty cigarettes
- all in one box, that is. And speak-
ing of smoking, a Ronson lighter is
always welcome - either the kind to
carry (in all sorts of nifty designs)
or the desk ligliter variety.
Whether the gentlemen be in grade
school or is a corporation lawyer,
you can be surehis heart would go
out to "Yard-O'-Led," a super-pencil.
It costs only $5, and is guaranteed to
refill easily, have a steady point, and,

in general, be everything a good pen-
cil should be.
For one's father or uncle, umbrel-
las and sticks with malacca handles
might fit in nicely.
And nothing gives a young brother
a greater lift than an action-inspir-
ing pair of military brushes-they
have the same effect as a new hat
has on us.
Eventually we must consider
clothes, for men are always fond
of fine apparel. English-made
clothes seem to take the cake. There
are lisle, "doeskin," washable shirts
- $10 per, but they are said to be
worth every cent of it. Then there
are more moderately priced golf
shirts of Scotch matt weave, Scotch
knitted socks and ties - the latter
being one-piece and reversible.
Sweaters are nice this year. A re-
versible Australian lace alpaca swea-
ter is advertised in all colors-one
side contrasting with the other.
And finally, returning to unwear-
ables, a combination wallet and note-
book of English pin seal makes a
beautiful gift. A flat, sterling silver
pencil goes with the combination.

Aladdin, the hero of the play, who

him any wish he makes, will wear an
oriental robe and turban typical of
the days of the Arabian Nights in
Bagdad. His costume, as well as
those of the attendants, all display
the Eastern love for extremely

blue and royal purple.

The costumes have been planned
to bring out the fantastic element
of the whole scenes and an Oriental
atmosphere. They are just unreal
enough to fit into a setting where
palaces fly through the air, food
appears out of the sky, tables and
chairs come out of nowhere, and
camels can talk.
