by the Women's Athletic Association
as this year's project, will be held
Tuesday, March 31, Wednesday, April.
1, and Thursday, April 2, in Barbour
and Waterman Gymnasiums.
Gertrude Andresen, '42, vice-presi-
dent of the WAA board, is chairman I
of the affair, which will include phys-
ical fitness exercises, posture contest
and clinic, a grooming talk, skits on'
"The Do's and Don'ts of Dress," and
a co-recreational program of various
sports, movies and square dancing.

tory, sorority, and league house will
be asked to send from 5 to 10 wo-
men to the Daily Dozen and Physical
Fitness Exercises in Barbour Gym.
At 8:30 p.m. a Posture Contest and
Posture Clinic will be conducted for'
the same group.
At 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, each

JGPAudience To Be Admitted
At Half Price To League Dance
Informality Of Hardy's Dance
To Vie With Engineer Formal;
Joan Reutter Will Be Featured

Supporters of the junior class who
will attend JGP's "No Questions
Asked" Friday will be able to enter
the League Ballroom afterwards to
dance away the rest of the evening
for exactly half the original week-
end price.
JGP's production will begin at 8:30
p.m. in the Lydia Mendelssohn Thea-
tre and will be over at approximately
10:30 p.m. Anyone attending the
performance may then present his
theatre ticket stub at the man desk
of the League and receive a dance.
ticket for only half the usual price.
Gerdno Hardy To Play
Gordon Hardy and his orchestra
will play for this informal dance
which will be in direct contrast with
the elaborate formality of Slide Rule
Ball to be held the same night in
the Union Ballroom.
Anything from sweaters, skirts and
saddle shoes to proper date clothes
will do for the evening. In fact, there
will probably be a little of each there
-as for members of the JGP cast
itself who intend to celebrate by at-
tending this special dance, they're
liable to come in just about anything.
'Golden Mean' Of Informality
The whole idea of this dance is to
provide opportunity to dance for
those who do not come under the

Honor Unattached Women
Red place cards with the civilian

one will designate the places last
year's JGP cast and the patronesses

Getting things together really is a
job, central committee for this year's
JGP, "No Questions Asked," decided
as they watched music, dances, dia-
logue and costumes being put to-
gether for the first time yesterday
by Mary Ellen Wheeler, director
against a back drop of half-paintedI
scenery props.
The production was assembled in
its entirety to finish off the inevitable
rough spots before presenting the

choruses, from the typically coed
tappers to the graceful ballet waltz-
ers, gradually acquired the precision
technique of the Rockettes, the re-
sult of months of "limbering-up" ex-
ercises conducted by dance co-chair-
men Jean Ranahan and Lorraine
Costume Order Confused
As for the music--well, with Al
Burt working along with the com-
mittee chairman, how could it pos-.
sibly be anything but good? Of
course, there are a few minor details
to be taken care of yet-for instance,
one whole chorus and trio are still
in the embryonic stages-but these
will be under control shortly, 'tis
said, optimistically.
The costume committee had its
first real set-back yesterday when the
aqua tarletane ordered from Detroit
for the ballet costumes arrived as an
ugly shade of bright pink. Kay Jones,
costumes chairman, reacted quite
normally by saying, "Oh, well, we can
get the aqua by Tuesday, maybe."
All of which proves that no one

really understands how many things
are left to the last minute through
the intervention of unfavorable cir-
Meanwhile, the League is fairly
booming with JGP noises-all the
way from an irritated director to a
vocalist very much off key. Fre-
quently you see general chairman
Mary Lou Ewing running past but,
more frequently, you don't even see
her at all.
Joan Stevens and Stanley Lock,
the two pianists who will play duo
pianos for the show, are going slowly
crazy trying to be everywhere at once.
As for previously mentioned Al Burt,
he has the constitution of a steel
barrel-absolutely immune to fatigue
and nerves.

Physical fitness is to be promoted
because of the realizatin that it is
every person's duty to keep himself

emergency and the increased work
can be met by able men and women.
