matter of identifying a few simple,
little dance steps. Demonstrating
the steps will be Claire Reed-Hill,
'42; Murray Markland, '43; J ne
fConnell, '42, and Bob Shedd, '42.
As the various novelties are danced

are successful enough to keep their
Virginia r;eels and congas straight,
according to Dick Strain, '41, social
co-chairman of the Union.
Another novelty will be a balloon

have to blow up their balloons until

Good Costumes

Poise and mastery-the attributes
so important to the performance of

correct costuming in a play, accord-

the Children's Theatre. Young actors

For "Children 1777," which will be-

row night in the Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre, Mrs. Mellencamp and her
student assistants outfitted 16 play-
ers in costumes of the American rev-
olutionary period. A trip through the
costume room in the League brought
to light the wide variety in the type
of garments needed for the play,
which included among its characters
representatives of almost every class
living in the American colonies as
well as some immigrant peoples.
The material going into the gar-
ments was equally as varied as their
design: old pantaloons made sleeves
in one dress; ten-cent store chamois
made a buckskin costume; the blue
velvet lining of an old fur coat made
the jacket for a little rich girl's
dress; an old gold belt made gay trim
on a boy's bright red suit; a quilted

Women Presidents

house presidents will meet at 4:30
p.m. today in the League for their

with the League Judiciary Council.
The approximately 75 women who

found the weekly meetings, an in-

helpful in making plans within their
