Capitalist Ball Maestro


Former Daily Editor
Finds Love In Boston
All things must yield to love! Proof
for this old adage was seen again in
the Feb. 20 issue of Time Magazine.
Richard L. Tobin, '32, former man-
aging editor of The Michigan Daily,
and now assistant city editor of the
New York Herald-Tribune, was quite
a traveler after he left school. In his
travels he often stopped at a certain
Boston hotel.
This hotel recently noticed that
guest Tobin had not entered its por-
tals for a long time. It sent Tobin a
letter seeking the reason for its loss of
business. The following came back
"Boy met girl in Boston. Boy
courted girl in Boston. Boy married
girl in Boston. Boy and girl now liv-
ing happily in New York!"

History Of Twentieth Century
Traced In Evolution Of JGP

First Play Given In 1905;
Ranks High On Campus
As Michigan Tradition
If this were the introduction to a
history textbook instead of a feature
on one of the better traditions of the
Michigan campus we might find "that
the history of '20th century America
can be traced in the evolution of the
Junior Girls Play."
A little far-fetched, it's true, but
there's something in it, nevertheless.
The first JGP was given in 1905,;
about the time that some of our
mothers and fathers were struggling
with their first Ford. It was a very
informal play, presented for the sole
benefit of the senior women by the
juniors. 'It was held in the tiny au-
ditorium in Barbour Gymnasium,
Sarah Caswell Angell Hall.
There 'was no question of whether
men should participate in those days.
The Junior Girls Play was the "sanc-
tum sanctorium" of junior and senior
women (like the front entrance of
the Union for men). Only a few
friends were invited to attend and
they were always women.
The post-war boom of the '20's was
echoed in the production of extreme-
ly elaborate plays. Beginning with
1920 they were given in the Whitney
Theatre on three nights, the first be-
ing reserved for the seniors. The
plays required tremendous budgets
and became more work than pleasure.
Ih 1927 "Gold, by Pauline Bene-
dict Fisher was shown in Detroit on
two nights after being given on the

usual three evenings in Ann Arbor.j
The purpose of this was to make
money for the League building which
was soon to be started. Under thej
sponsorship of Detroit alumnae the
play netted $2,000.
This stage in the development of
JGP was characterized by elaborate
programs, music scores published in
book form, expensive costumes, and
a huge over-head cost. When the
League was built the play was given
in Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre and
has been ever since.
In its third phase, Junior Girls
Play has hit what Dean Alice Lloyd,
chief authority'on the subject, terms,
a "happy medium." Written and di-
rected by campus people, it offers a
large portion of junior women a
chance to indulge that suppressed de-
sire to participate in such amateur
productions which seems to be felt
quite universally among both men
and women.
So JGP lives on, surpassing in en-
durance even the famous Union Op-
era which the current population of
the Michigan campus relegates to the
category of mgyth.

p.m. to 7 p.m. today. The dinner
and social hour will be held at the
home of Mrs. C. F. Harris, who is a
patroness of the sorority.
