Soph Cabaret, To Be Discussed
There will be a mass meeting of all
sophomore women at 5 p. in. Wed-
nesday in the League for the pur-
pose of considering the establish-
ment of another branch of Soph
The present central committee of
Soph Project has been pleased with
the turnout for its hospital volun-
teer service and feels that it is go-
ing so well that the sophomore class
is capableof taking on an additional
project. It will be run by an entire
new central committee while the
present committee will continue to
be in charge of the hospital service.
It has been suggested that the
additional project be an attempt
to revive Soph Cabaret to which
the sophomore class devoted its
entire efforts before the advent of
war. Not only will a traditional
campus event be revived by the
present sophomore class, but it will
give more sophomore women a
chance to petition and become act-
ive in campus activities.
The proceeds from the proposed
revived cabaret would be donated
to some worthy campus fund for
students and petitioning would take
place before the end of the present
semester. The new central commit-
tee will begin plans as soon as it
is chosen, and it is hoped that Soph
Cabaret will be presented toward
the beginning of next semester.
Soph Cabaret, in former years,
took over the League for an entire
week-end and featured floor shows,
plays, dancetroutines, games, coke
bars and even taxi-dancing with
coeds acting as hostesses.
Events commenced on Friday
night, continued on Saturday after-
noon, and the climax was reached
with a gala turnout on Saturday
night. Each year a different theme
was carried out in the various rooms
which the Cabaret took over for
the affair. These themes were car-
ried out to the fullest extent with
elaborate decorations and costumes.
