Gloria was born in Buenos Aires,

America at the age of fourteen with
her mother, and they settled in Chi-
cago. She had long been a fan of
Scott, had collected many of his rec-
ords, and when he came out to Chi-
cago on an extended road tour, she
summoned up all her courage and
wrote him for an audition.
Made Home Recording
When asked to send in a record
of her singing, she made a record
with his orchestra in the back-ground
on her home recordiograph. - Scott
had been looking for a girl vocalist
and on this particular afternoon he
had listened to sixty records sent in
by hopeful singers. All except ten were
eliminated and these were given per-
sonal auditions. Then the number was
cut to three, and finally Gloria was

trimmed with the same kid band and

tioned and who are planning to be

views with their ideas well in mind.
She emphasized the fact that this
was the applicants only opportunity
to sell her plans to the interviewing;
board, and that it is on this basis that
appointments will be made.
Even though not petitioning for

cular committee in which she is in-
terested, Miss Walpole advised.
Interviewing will be conducted by
a group of representatives from the
Assembly Board. These include the
four officers of Assembly and the
presidents of each of the four groups
of the organization; the League

Independents and Beta Kappa Rho.

Mr. Mellencamp began this year to
design and make the scenery for the
Children's Theatre productions when
it became evident that the minor ac-
cidents pf past years were becoming
too disconcerting for the youthful
players of the productions. In one
instance a falling tree, fortunately a
fabricated one, scored a direct hit
on the heroine's head, while use of
a ping pong table for a bed by a
scenery crew with no time to make a
real bed, resulted in a fold up act for
its occupant.

During this year's fall season in
the Children's Theatre, sets have been
constructed under Mr. Mellencamp's
guidance for the "Princess and the
Pea" and "Children, 1777." At pres-
ent the stage requirements for "Han-
sel and Gretel," dance pantomime to
begin with its four performance run
Friday, have called for the construe-
tion of a small hut, a gingerbread
house, a stove, and a cage. Trees and
bushes from past sets will be used in
the outdoor scenes.
Mr. Mellencamp works chiefly with
strip lumber, muslin, water paints,
and feminine carpenters whom, he
contends, are often better at their
work than boys, it all depending upon
interest and the willingness to try to
do the work. Broad techniques and
bright colors are important in scen-
ery construction, Mr. Mellencamp
says, inasmuch as too detailed workt
cannot be seen by the audience.
In addition all scenery for the
Lydia Mendelssohn stage must be con-
structed with an eye to fitting it
through a nine-foot square hole in
the floor of the stage. Thus large
pieces must be made either to fold or
to come apart. Scenery on the stage
is kept erect by means of props and
braces; during changes it is pushed
off stage but snot removed from the
