'Excursion' Fog Horns And Bells
Present Sound Effect Problems

Ticket Sale Will Be Held'
From 10 A.M. To Noon,
2 To 6 P.M., Daily
The necessity for perfect coordina-
tion and timing in producing the!
sound effects for "Excursion" has
presented a problem of considerable
difficulty to the "back stage" staff of
the play.
Whitford Kane, guest director and
male lead in "Excursion," declares
that the sound effects are really more
important than the play itself, be-
cause the impression of the entire
setting must be gained before the
action will be appreciated. The dif-
ficulty lies in producing various
sounds simultaneously-whistles must
blow while bells clang and water laps
the prow of the S.S. Happiness.
James Moll, '39, is in charge of
the sound effects and has been
equipped with innumerable record-
ings of all possible sounds heard in
New York harbor, an improvised fog
horn and two turn' tables with which
he is strugling to produce the neces-
sary sound at the proper time. I
Valentine B. Windt, general direc-

tor of the play, comrhented on the
rehearsals as proceeding rapidly. He
described them as being handled in
"chaotic" order.
Sale of tickets will be held from
10 a.m. to noon and from 2 to 6 p.m.
every day at the box office in the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre. Prices
of the tickets are 35, 50 and 75 cents.
The better seats for Ahe Thursday
performance and Saturday matinee
will be available at a lower price, Mr.
Windt announced.

people who are not going to use their
Rachmaninoff concert tickets are re-
quested to turn them in to Miss Mc-
Cormick at her office in the League.
The tickets will be distributed to
students who can use them.
Those who prefer the softness of
the lighter nail polishes or who have
just decided to look sweet and fragile
after a summer of playing, may be
interested in a delicate shade of
lipstick and rouge called "Current

Dick Jurgens and his nationally
known orchestra will provide the

gineers' Ball. They have previously
