Plans And Jobs
To Be Outlined
By Committee
Shirley Silver Will Manage
Work Of 'Jumping Jupiter',
A Modern Play In Greek Setting
Work on Junior Girls Play, "Jump-
ing Jupiter!", will begin with a mass
meeting at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 26,
in the ballroom of the League, to
start the wheels of production roll-
ing with the help of every eligible
junior woman on campus, Shirley
Silver, '42, general chairman, an-
nounced.
The purpose of the meeting is to
acquaint the junior women with the
opportunities for committee work,
and to outline the organization of
the project so that everyone will
know which type of work will be
most suited to her particular abili-
ties.
Each member of the central com-
mittee, which was chosen last spring,
will give a brief outline of the work
that will be handled by her commit-
tee, along with her ideas on new
methods and approaches. Miss Silver
will then describe the plans which
have been discussed by the central
committee last spring and this fall,
and she will speak a few words about
the script.
An indication of the size of this
annual project is the fact that work
on it began last spring with the ap-
pointment of the committeemen, and
the announcement of the script con-
test which closed Nov. 15.
The winning script must now be
studied and discussed with an eye to
dance routires and songs, then pro-
duction will begin, with try-outs for
singing and dancing parts. The
finished production will be shown
March 26, primarily for ,the seniors
and their traditional banquet, and'
will continue with a three nights'
run.
"Jumping Jupiter!" is a very mo-
dern comedy in a classic Greek set-
ting. Costumes, sets and lighting
should provide very interesting prob-
lems in linking the spirit of the play
with its background.
Candy Booth Sales
Change With Season
Campus candy booths are proving
a veritable thermometer of the trends
of the times. Moreover they are an
"education in themselves" for the.
profits from their sales are turned
over to the League scholarship fund.
Sales have their ups and downs, it
is reported by Beth Castor, '41, chair-
nan of the booths, according to the
season or the weather. For example
cough drop sales increase. during the
"cold season"; bluebooks and cigar-
ettes go fast during examination days.
Gum, mint drops, pop corn, potato
chips and candy are always popular.<
This year two new booths have
been established in Betsy Barbour1
House and Stockwell hall in addition
to the booths established previously;
in Helen Newberry Residence, Mo-i
sher-Jordan Halls and University
Hall. A newly established executivei
council holds meetings once eachi
month to discuss supplies, sales, prices
and advertising.r

Theta Xi Will Honor Pledges 'Sunshine, Inc.'
At Traditional Formal Today Will Feature
Date Bureau
As an added enticement for stu-
dents to attend "Sunshine, Inc.," this
year's edition of Sophomore Cabaret,
a date bureau, especially delegated
to arrange dates for this affair, will
be opened Friday, with representa-
tives placed in both the Union and
the League.
} A similar arrangement was worked
out for the Freshman Project last
year and from reports of the commit-
tee was very successful. This year's
bureau will be open at 9 a.m. Fri-
day and will run through 5 p.m. every
day through Thursday, Nov. 28, which
is the day before Sophomore Cab-
aret will be presented. Any person
in any class may put- his name in
to the date bureau which will ar-
range dates for those who are in
Sthe same year in school, if so de-
.sired.
Members of the committee may be
recognized by the white tags they
are wearing on their coats. The bu-
reau has charge of arranging dates
for both of the evening perform-
ances of Sophomore Cabaret, so men
or women desiring dates should des-
ignate which night they are intend-
ing to go.
