tradition of the Soph Cabaret, which
was discontinued after the outbreak
of the war. "Sunshine, Inc." was the

notes, dealt with the theme of the'
sunny south. A boardwalk was erec-

Petitions Due
For JQ Play
Committees for 1946 Junior
Production Will Be Selected
Petitions for the Junior Girls' Play,
which will be presented during the
first month of the 1946 spring semes-
ter, are due at the Undergraduate
Office in the League by noon Satur-
day, according to Ruth Ann Bales,
President of Judiciary Council.

tary-treasurer, stage managers, a

composer, a lyrics writer, a choral
director, and an arranger. Chairmen

All petitions must contain specific
and complete plans of the organiza-
ticn, and also a criticism of this
year's play. Women petitioning for
the music, dance, and script com-

of writing and a specific outline for
the play should be presented by those
petitioning for the script committee.

omore women are urged to petition,
regardless of previous experience or

tioned in the past are urged to sub-
mit petitions again.

WACs Count
Release Points
Many Will Remain in Europe
With Army Occupation Forces
"Peace and Points" is the slogan of
the 15,546 members of the Women's
Army Corps now serving overseas,
and the average WAC is busy adding
up her length of service, medals and
dependents to get a score that will
release her for her real job in life-
husband, home, and children.
Office work and signals, in which
WACs excel is just as important to
the Army of Occupation as it was
to running the war, and approxi-
mately 10,800 WACs will be kept
in the Army of Occupation, which
means that more will be sent over-
seas to augment the 8,000 now on
duty in the European Theater of
WACs whose husbands have been'
returned 'to the United States for
discharge may apply and be granted
immediate discharge. Those whose
husbands are returned to the United
States for hospitalization or perma-
nent assignment will be returned and
stationed as close to their husbands
as possible. No WAC will be sent to
the Pacific unless she volunteers for
Serviceworimen are fairly well sat-
isfied with their lot, pointing out
that they enlisted for the duration
and six months, and as they aren't
going to be forced to go to the
Pacific, it is only fair to keep them
overseas in the theater where they
can do the most good.

Novel Blouses.
Add Qay Tone
To Wardrobes
T HOSE old wardrobe mainstays,
suits, skirts, and jumpers can be
made to look fresh and different
with a few good-looking blouses.
A gay flowered blouse can do won-
ders for a. plain colored jumper. A
bold peppermint striped blouse with
long, graceful sleeves and a bow-tie
neckline in a cool washable material,
or a paisley printed rayon jersey with
soft shoulder lines, high round neck-
line, and long sleeves which tie in
small bows at the wrist will brighten
any outfit. A black printed blouse
is very striking when worn with a
light colored jumper.
There are many varieties of the
sheer blouse, which is attractive with
either a plain wool skirt or a bright
cotton dirndl. One of these, seen
recently, is a fresh white dotted swiss
with short puffed sleeves and velvet
ribbons tying at the ruffled cuffs and
gathered neckline.
THIS material can be laundered
easily which is an important fac-
tor in a summer blouse. Another is
a frail lacy blouse which has a hand-
made look. It has a high ruffed neck,
four rows of ruffles down the front
with a single row of buttons down
the middle, and short sleeves with
another ruffle about halfway up the
side. It is made of a washable rayon
which irons beautifully.
More and still more summery blou-
ses to wear with dirndls are being
shown. There are cotton and rayon
batiste blouses which button down
the back and have short sleeves. One
of these has a low round neckline in
back as well as in front (really dar-
ing) and is trimmed with eyelet em-
broidery. Another has three rows of
bright cross-stitching around the
yoke and sleeves. A third is made of
white waffle pique with lacy tatting-
effect edging which is very flattering.
A BRIGHT plaid seersucker is a
must for every girl's wardrobe.
These blouses have short sleeves and
a variety of necklines, ranging from
a high drawstring to a deep V-neck.
A number of types of the cap-
sleeved blouse have been seen. There
are pastel prints with drawstring
necks, plain colored blouses with lacy
eyelet ruffles on the collar and cuffs,
and blouses trimmed only with a
monogrammed bow. A pinch-hitter
for the cap-sleeved blouse is a wrap-
around with the back tying at the
waist in front. This would be an
easy blouse to make for those who
are so inclined and are lucky enough
to have any cotton material.
THE MOST versatile of all is the
collarless white blouse. Long or
Luscious, locally-grown orchids
are a very special offer. Truly
beautiful and moderately priced.

Ethel Barrymore Carries On
Family Tradition in Theater

Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert Michel of
Detroit have announced the engage-
ment of their daughter, Helena, to
Bernard Isenberg, son of Mr. and
Mrs. William Isenberg also of De-
Miss Michel is a member of the
junior class at the University. While
at the University, Mr. Isenberg was
affiliated with Phi Sigma Delta fra-
* * *
The engagement of Doris R. Les-
ser, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. David
Lesser of Bridgeport, Conn., to Capt.
William Garbose, son of Mr. and Mrs.
Jacob Garbose of Athol, Mass., has
recently been announced.
Miss Lesser is a junior at the Uni-
versity and a member of Sigma Delta
Tau sorority, and Zeta Phi Eta hon-
orary fraternity.

At the age of sixty-five, Ethel Bar-
rymore is more real to millions of
Americans than ever before. Those
who were never able to see her on the
stage are meeting her in the movies,
or listening to her weekly radio pro-
She looks the same offstage as on,
and her voice-that thrilling, throaty
voice, is also the same. She has large
square hands, very white skin and
she wears lipstick.
Like all the Barrymores, she is
fiery, unpredictable and the complete
master of any situation. That she
makes fascinating reading is proved
in a profile now appearing in "She"
Magazine whose interviewer says of
Miss Barrymore: "You speak to a
great lady and never manage to
reach a woman."
She will tell you that she loves
fire, sports, lace and furs. Her bar-
onial mansion at Mamaroneck, N.Y.
-closed for the duration-has a fire-
place in every room. Her dresses are

worn long, almost to the ankle. She
dresses beautifully, with elegant sim-
plicity, but people only remember
the length of her clothes and her
magnificent fur wraps. She is fond
of pearls, but not very jewel-con-
scious. Once upon a time she spent
hours window-shopping. Now the
crowds which follow her embarrass
her and she tries not to enter public
"Tea for Miss Barrymore" is a
familiar phrase in theatrical circles.
She drinks tea at any hour, prefers
it to any other beverage. Nor does
she abstain from smoking to save her
It is hard to persuade her to allow
the use of any photograph which
does not feature her profile. She feels
that the profile is a better character
study-almost a family trademark.
Two maids and a chauffeur com-
pose her service staff in her New
York apartment. All three have been
with Miss Barrymore for more than
a decade.
She reads two or three books a day
-most of the reading is done in bed
at night. She gets very little sleep
but lots of rest.
Someone once called Ethel Barry-
more the best mother among Ameri-
can actresses and the best actress
among American mothers. The role
of mother suits her well . . . though
it is a personal part, a characteriza-
tion the public seldom sees. She was
the first New York star to install a
telephone in her dressing room so
that she could check with the chil-
dren's nurse between acts. She is
proud of her daughter Ethel's oper-
atic voice-says she has a lovely
range, and adds, "Ethel and her hus-
band are so happy."
