speech class in composid g the sales
talk which had been the- assignment
yesterday, but the slightly flustered
professor was forced to admit the
energetic drive she put cii was cer-
Connie, whose class is comnposed of
engineers and some architec ture stu-
dents, admits that her lifte hasn't
been too happy in the pasti months,
because speeches just don't seem to
go over before an audience of drowsy
and uninspiring engineers.
The boys were rudely awa kened
out of their lethergy however when,
after a short introduction, Connie
whipped out a war stamp and called
for a purchaser. Although her sp eech
might not have been technically Iper-
fect, the effect cannot be questioned,
because it netted two dollars more
for Uncle Sam.
An Allied mule and camel train carry vital supplies over rocky, barren terrain somewhere in Tunisia to a
United Nations' base near an enemy-held mountain pass.

quoted by name, said his class was
dismissed in this way:

We overheard this in the classroom.
Professor Dahlstrom refused and the
man left the room. At 9:30 he re-
turned and after a short conversa-

will offer the Broadway hit play,
"Stage Door," for a run of four per-
formances, Jan. 13 through Jan. 16,

Rehearsals for this campus pro-
duction have been in progress for
many weeks, and an unusually large
cast filled predominantly with women
is now rounding up the final details
necessary for a finished performance.
A comedy hit complete with witty
dialogue and wry remarks, "Stage
Door" has proved equally successful
on the stage and screen. Its authors,
George S. Kaufman and Edna Ferber,
have fashioned this play around the
tales of girls who aspite to stars in
the New York theatre.
The action of "Stage Door" takes
place in the Foot-Lights Club, where

Democrats and Republicans alike
called for a holiday on politics in

"a very happy, harmonious caucus;
there was no trouble at all, and we
are going to win the 1944 elections."
