his fifteen "Mad Cap" Merrymakers
will be featured at the dance. Extra
entertainment will be furnished by
"Sonny Boy" Gil Euker, the comedy
trumpter and Bill Wendell, vocalist.

Dance that they are noted for in De-
troit. The League Grill will be open

The theme of the dance is the "Pay-
Off" or "Thank You" for previou

orated in Mortarboard designs for the
affair and the dance programs will

Juniors To Qive
Musical Despite
Many Obstacles
When "There's Room for All," 1947
Junior Girls Play is presented for
Senior Night, Thursday, March 14,
it will mark a triumph over every
obstacle from mumps to non-existent
Written by a committee of Junior
women, directed by Jean Raine, and
produced by an all Junior cast and
committee it was expected that with
completion of the script and the
starting of rehearsals, the harrowing
difficulties of producing an original
JGPIay would cease.
But such was not the ease. Fate,
which Miss Raine claims as her assis-
tant director, still had innumerable
surprises yet to spring. Choreo-
grapher Janice Bernstein spent a few
hectic days completely rearranging
all dance routines when Peggy Allen,
member of the dancing. chorus,
turned up with two suspicious looking
bumps on either side of her face.
Mumps they were, and every routine
had to be revamped and rebalanced
to compensate for Miss Allen's so-
journ in Health Service.
Miss Bernstein had just thought
.er worries over when the properties
.ommittee informed her that finding
Jhe three sturdy tables called for in
ne of Jean Hole's tap solos was as
mpossible as importing an eleo iant.
The quest is still on.
Miss Raine has discovered that a
lirector's life is more than pleas of
"Leuder," and "Walk more slowly."
With Kit Riegal, one of the main
haracters, and four other juniors in
the cast planning to go through rush-
ing, to say nothing of the sorority
wfomen in the cast who must do the
rushing, sched iling rehearsals has
become a problem im logistics.
TIhe major costuming problem was
partially solved by the cast while
home between semesters, that of pro-
curing the necessary men clothes.
Fortunately, the controversies which
will arise when brothers and fathers
discover that their last white shirt or
their favorite sportcoat has complete-
ly disappeared are not the worry of
Jeanne Busch, costume chairman.
In the true tradition of the theatre,
Junior women are determined that
the play must go on, and in spite of
all, Miss Daley promises that senior
women this year will see a JGPlay to
top all JGPlays when they see
"There's Room for All," in Lydia
Mendelssohn Thur s day following
Senior Supper.
Matches Will Begin
Women interested in registering for
this semester's badminton tournament
may still sign up on the bulletin
board in Barbour Gym through Sat-
urday noon.
Matches will be posted by Monday
and the tournament will begin that
afternoon. The available time for
games will also be posted.
