Moping On The Mall,
By Meandering Minnie
THE week end of the year has past and all the battered husks that pass
for students have crept back to tife campus and their favorite pipe courses.
After all, spring is coming, and one must plan for plenty of outdoor exercise.
Take care of your body, Mazie, she said, munching
on a raw carrot--
J.G.P. is at last really getting under way. The
drahma of it, that is. Tryouts for "A Pig In A Poke,"
as it is familiarly called by the committee, went on
Tuesday and yesterday. Each candidate must go
through a nerve-wracking ordeal before she can
get her job in the last row of the chorus. (The fat
,one, third from the left.)
Trying out consists of creeping over to the
League, where one is accosted at the theatre door
and forced at the point of a lead pencil to hand over one buck. After passing
that hurdle successfully, the prospective actress lurks around with other
kindred souls, also lurking, until it is time to go on the stage.
Pianist Awaits Singers On Stage... .
On the stage sits a lone pianist, surrounded by popular music of all
decades. Selecting one at random, the junior gives tongue in full voice. Next
she reads about fifteen lines in her most resonant, throbbing voice, conjur-
ing up visions of Jane Cowl and Katherine Cornell the e
One young lady was startled by the request, made in
a sepulchral voice floating up from the inky blackness of
the theatre-"Lemme see your legs!" Her expression and
answering remark must have been something, for the cen-
tral committee sitting down there burst into guffaws.
Zelda Davis and Betty Nichols were doing the meas-
uring for costumes, and Jane Nussbaum, costume chair-
man and all, was wielding a mean tape measure herself.
Betty Stadelman led the women in to the slaughter, as it
were, and Fran Henderson had entrenched herself at the
doorway to gather in dollar bills. Jean Tibbits, finance
chairman, was officiating here and there, and Jane Hart
were waiting their turn at emoting.

Smith, '39M, general chairman of
the affair announced yesterday. Mu-

er, '39M, music chairman.
Osborne's orchestra, which now in-
cludes 14 members besides ,himself,
was organized in 1924 with six mem-
bers. The extreme jazz then in vogue
gave rise to (Osborne's decision to
create a type of soft rhythm similar
to organ music, and it was from this
that his representatives named him
"Creator of Slide Music." Osborne
is a graduate of St. Andrews College.
A feature of his music is the use

in New York City for a season; the

Committee Snickers In Audience e.. .
Dottie Shipman, Kay MacIvor and Pattie Haislip were in the audience,
watching Dick MdElvie anxiously as he pondered each likely-looking singer.
Berta Leete was stewing over just what she should check on the card re-
questing a list of her stage abilities. Mary Jane Kronner was rushing
around with her hands full of O'Neill's plays. Helen Ralston got up and
sang with nary a quiver and Annabel Dredge was muttering lines from
"Dinner At Eight" to herself offstage. Harriet Thom worked herself into
a good case of nerves while awaiting the fatal hour.
The Union Council did its bit toward initiating incoming freshies yes-
terday at their Coffee Hour. During this super "socal hour" Ann Servicky
and Richard Dolenga danced by, Janet Cogdill and Ford Whippel also
seemed to be enjoying this slant on Collitch life. Out in the lounge Jeanne
Crump, Mary Hayden and Bill Langford were chatting over prospects of
a new semester. Phyllis Lovejoy, Virginia Phelps, Beverly Bernstein, and
Abram Jacobson were some of the freshmen greeted by Marcia Connell,
Stephanie Parfet and Dorothea Krouse, members of the Orientation
