Decorations and entertainment for
the 1938 League Fair, to be held Fri -
day and Saturday in conjunction with
Sophomore Cabaret, will be centered
around the theme "Davy Jones' Lock-
er," Ellen Cuthbert, '39, general
chairman, announced yesterday.
Both the Cabaret and the Fair will
represent undersea life, with each
one of the booths of the latter carry-
ing out a particular phase of the
scheme. Ten booths will be spon-

cieties on campus, and the League

One of the main events of the Fair
will be the raffle of a one hundred
dollar arm-chair model of a Zenith
radio-phonograph. A limited num-
ber of tickets for the raffle will be
sold beginning tomorrow in the
League lobby and throughout 'the
week by members of the central com-
mittee and the League Council. The
winner of the prize will be anounced

The League Fair is traditionally
held by the upperclass women on
the same nights as Sophomore Caba-
ret. The second floor of the League
is converted into a carnival with a
nu'mber of booths in which games
and'tests of skill are presented. The
theme of the affair is in harmony
with that of the Cabaret, "Deep Sea
Doodles. .
