'THE MtI C HIGAPTN DAl IIlY

Sale of Tickets
For JG Play
To Commence
Senior Coeds Will Be Honored
Thursday by Initial Production
Of 'There's Room For All'
Tickets for "There's Room for All,"
1946 Junior Girls Play which will be
presented for the public at 8:30 Fri-
day and Saturday at Lydia Mendels-
sohn Theatre, will be on sale from
1:30 to 5:30 Thursday, and from 1:30
until curtain time Friday and Sat-
urday at the Box Office of the
League.
Recently improved for subsequent
performances after the initial pro-
duction honoring senior women at
Senior Night Thursday, the play is a
clever satire on a theme familiar to
all Ann Arborites. Written, directed
and produced solely by junior women,
the musical is completely original,
with music and lyrics by Elaine Raiss
and Marian Sharkey and dance rout-
ings by Janice Bernstein.
Play Follows Senior Night Program
Presentation of the play will follow
the Senior Night program, scheduled
to begin with Senior Supper at 6 p.m.
Tickets for the dinner may be pur-
chased between 3 and 5 p.m. tomor-
row, Tuesday and Wednesday in the
office of the Social Director of the
League.
Community singing will open the
Senior Night program at Lydia Men-
delssohn Theatre, followed by Senior
Parade, in which all seniors will par-
ticipate. Married women will light
candles, engaged women suck lemons,
pinned women wear gilded toothpicks,
and unattached women will throw as
many pennies as they are old into the
wishing well.
Immediately preceding the presen-
tation of this year's JGPlay, seniors
will stage a revue of "Take It From
There," of last year. All of the songs,
several of the dance routines, and
some of the individual acts will be
featured.
Seniors Will Wear Caps And Gowns
All senior women who appeared in
last year's production or who Worked
on the play will meet at 7:30 p.m. to-
morrow at the League to rehearse for
the revue. The room will be posted
on the board in the League lobby.
Caps and gowns must be worn by
all senior women to both the dinner
and play, and no one will be admitted
without them. Gowns may be picked
up Wednesday and Thursday at a lo-
cal sport shop. A fee of $5 must be
deposited to rent the gowns, and $3
will be refunded upon their return.
Theme of Play Will Be Unannounced
All women graduating in June must
procure their gowns before Senior
Night, and they may be kept until
graduation. Any women who will re-
ceive more than a Bachelor's degree
must place a special order.
Traditional secrecy surrounds the
exact theme of the play until after its
first staging in honor of senior
women.
WAA Notices
ORGANIZED to offer not only rec-
reation, but also to accomplish
definite aims, Club Basketball, open
to all women, meets at 5:10 Wednes-
day and Thursday, announced Lucille
Sheetz, manager.
Teams will work out plays and de-
velop skills for a better understanding
of women's basketball.
Canadian basketball will also be
featured in the club. This variation
of the game requires moresskill. The
difference lies in that two-thirds of
the court is used for playing instead
of the usual one-half. Games will be
supervised by Beverly Seidel.

He season will end April 18, ter-
minated by demonstrations for
high school girls in this vicinity. The
purpose of the demonstration will be
to show that women's basketball can
be a good and fast game when played
with skill and understanding.
Those interested in joining are
urged to sign up on the bulletin board
in Barbour Gym.

League Offers
Varied Facilities
For 'U' Women
EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the second in a
series of articles concerning the Michigan
League, its facilities, administration and
activities. Today's discussion deals with
the history and facilities of the present
Michigan League.
By JOAN WILK
The Michigan League Building
which is located at the corner of N.
University and S. Ingalls was erected
in 1929, following an extensive fund-
raising campaign conducted by Uni-
versity coeds as well as vast ranks of
alumnae.'
Established "In order that women
of the University, both alumnae and
students, might have a center for
alumnae and student organization,"
the necessary funds were raised. The
campaign got under-way in the
early days of 1921 when the under-
graduates and the Alumnae Council
decided to undertake a building. Lat-
er that year, the Board of Regents
granted the land and a sum of one
million dollars was voted upon to be
raised.
In 1922 a committee of undergrad-
uates was established to raise funds
on campus. Projects were established,
the proceeds of which were given to
the building fund, and during the
year 1922-23, $7,950 was raised. All
plays, cabarets, church and League
bazaars, and special projects made
donations to the fund. Letters to
alumnae yielded over $100,000 for the
building, and in 1926, alumnae went
back to all Michigan alumnae groups
to complete the million dollar sum
agreed and voted apon. In addition,
the state bought the property and the
additional funds for the proiet.
Finally, in 1929, the preent build-
ing was erected and the design was
executed by the Chicago firm of Pond
and Pond. The Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre was built at the same time,
but it is under entirely separate or-
ganization comprised of a University
committee. It has its own Board of
Governors which administrers its poll-
icies.
Every University coed is automati-
cally a member of the Michigan
League which was also established,,
according to. a Record of Governors
report . . . "For the promotion of
alumnae and student projects and
social activities . . a center which
would serve the women of the Uni-
versity . . . a center which would de-

sity Hospital.

Mu Phi Epsilon
Announces Spring

At the first meeting of the spring
semester, Mu Phi Epsilon, National
Professional Music Sorority, held
election of officers.
The following were elected, Jo Anne
Ling, president, Lorraine Zeeuw, vice-
president, Doris Gale,, recording sec-
retary, Barbara Lee Smith, corres-
ponding secretary, and Mary Evans
Johnson, treasurer.
Dr. E. V. Moore, Dean of the School
of Music, will be the guest speaker of
Mu Phi Epsilon on March 15.
The coeds at the Lodge have de-
cided on the clever and economical
idea of using paper drapes on their
windows. If they ever tire of the pret-
ty green flowered ones they have now,
they can toss them over for new ones
with no poverty stricken results.

ionshnip and cooperative enterprise."
Since every woman is a member of
the League, she has tne right to use
the building. A certain amount of
each coed's tuition is distributed to
f he League and to the Undergraduate
Office of the League. The Under-
graduate Fund directs all social ac-
tivit ies, through Miss Ethel MacCor-
mick, Social Director of the League.
An endowment fund, administered by
the Board of Governors, is used for
repairs and the general maintenance
of the building.
E cod services, provided in the
League, were established for students,
faculty and the general public. At
the present time, hotel accommoda-
tions are open to all women who up-
on graduation from the University,
automatically have become life mem-
bers of the League. Room accommo-
dations have been used for May Fes-
tival artists as well as Choral Union
artists, but they are primarily for
student use, alumnae use and then
for the use of the University.
Rooms for projects and committee

meetings are aion 7 the student fa-
cilities provided by the League on the
first, second and third floors. Loung-
ing rooms, separate study rooms and
the third floor library are also for
the u,,e of coeds. Traditionally a
women's building, men must be ac-
conpanied by women on the second
and third floors. The Ballroom, lo-
cated on the second floor of the
League, is open to any special parties,
and during the war, was used as a
cafeteria.
Independent women who have
not as yet procured their Assem-
bly membership cards may pick
them up from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. to-
morrow, Wednesday and Thurs-
day in the Assembly Office on
the second floor of the League.
The cards may be obtained at the
above times and days during the
entire semester. Membership
cards are necessary for partici-
pation in Assembly events and all
unaffiliated coeds are asked to
register with Assembly as soon as
possible.
