Sports Club Plans
Hike, Treasure Hunt
The Outdoor Sports Club is plan-
ning a hike and treasure hunt for
their meeting at 4:15 p.m. Monday.
This club has been formed for the
purpose of interesting more women
in participating in outdoor group
activities. A different program is
planned for each of the weekly meet-
ings. Thus far the club has sponsored
a canoeing narty and a bicycling
party. Planned for future meetings
are steak roasts, roller skating parties
and outdoor suppers.

"The real secret of successful stage
designing lies in being able to so inte-
grate and subordinate the physical
aspects of the play that the audience
is not conscious of them as such,"
declared Emeli he Clark Roche, scenic
designer and technical director of
the Dramatic Season plays.
Between telephone calls to Detroit
for materials, and borrowing records
for the sound man to experiment
with, Miss Roche managed to add
that though the problem of achiev-
ing this balance is often difficult, it
is always interesting.
Lighting Effects Discussed
For instance, in the first of the
Season's plays, "No War In Troy,"
Miss Roche has the problem of creat-
ing for the audience a Mediterranean

atmosphere-a setting which sug-
gests "a hot, bright sun, and a general
effect of sultriness. This she does
through a series of intricate lighting
arrangements, using heats of various
intensities to achieve the desired re-
sult. Miss Roche is an electrician
among other things.
Costumes for "No War In Troy"
presented a rather unique, problenj
to Miss Roche, for she not only had
to spend approximately a month and
a half of research on Greek and Tro-
jan fashions in order to give an ac-
curate portrayal, but also had to find
some way of achieving a subtle dis-
tinction between the, barbaric cos-
tumes of the Trojans, and the more
sophisticated dress of the Greeks.
Brilliant, raw colors in the suits of
the Trojan soldiers, and more sub-
dued tones in those of the Greeks
was her answer to this problem.
Costume For Play Described
Phillip Merivale's costume in "No
War In Troy" Miss Roche regards as
one of the most beautifully con-
steructed of its kind. The suit is made
of heavy quilted leather and had to
be carefully cut so that the weight
would fall around his shoudlers,
where he could carry it, instead of
hround his ' neck. Under the tunic,
Mr. Merivale wears a henna pleated
,Tool kilt. Long leg greaves are done
in henna and black leather, and his
helmet' is also made of leather.
Bowling Meet Planned
The women's bowling team will
hold a telegraphic meet Friday, May
18. Their opponents in this long dis-
tance contest willbe the women's
bowling team of the University of
Illinois. The Women's Athletic
Building will be the scene of Michi-
