1947 JGPlay Will Be Presented.
For the Public Today, Tomorrow

The first public performance of
"There's Room for All," smash hit
1947 Junion Girls Play, will take the
stage at 9 p.m. today at Lydia Men-
delssohn Theatre, and will be pre-
sented for the third time at 8:30 p.m.
All seats for the performances will
be reserved and tickets may be pur-
chased from 1:30 p.m. until curtain
time today and tomorrow at the
League Box Office.
Veterans are urged to attend the
production by Bill Akers, president of
the Veterans Organization, "It's un-
usual for a traditional event such as
JGPlay to be written especially to
appeal to veterans, and the VO is
certainly in favor of it. We hope that
every veteran on campus will be able
to attend the play," said Akers.
Written by a commmittee of junior
women, directed by Jean Raine, and
produced by an all junior cast and
committee, the musical features com-
pletely original songs, lyrics, and
dance routines. Acclaimed by the ap-
proval committee as one of the best
of the original plays even produced
by juniors, Miss Alice Lloyd, Dean of
Women, commented, "There's Room

for All" is a good play, and burlesques
the, post-war campus in a completely
amusing way."
Senior women here honored at the
initial presentation yesterday, and
their enthusiastic reception of the
play is expected to underwrite its
"There's Room for All" is the 41st
Junior Girls Play, with the tradition
dating back to 1904. Discontinued
during the first three years of the
war, the annual event was revived by
the class of 1945 with the original
play "Jabberwocky." Last year's,
"Take It From There" continued the
practice of juniors writing and pro-
ducing their own play.

Max Shulman
May Be Quest
At VO Dance
Max Shulman, author of "Feather
Merchants," has been invited as the
guest of honor to the Veterans Or-
ganization-sponsored d a n c e the
Feather Merchants Ball, to be held
from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Friday, March
29, at the Intramural Building. .
Shulman, who is a University of
Minnesota graduate and an ex-G.I.,
originated the phrased feather mer-
chants, which soon became popuar
with servicemen. During the war any
civilian who told a serviceman what
HE was doing to win the war was
called a feather merchant.
Now all veterans on campus con-
sider themselves feather merchants,
since a large part of their leisure time
is spent telling other veterans what
they did to win the war.
The VO hopes toaestablish the
Feather Merchants Ball, which is a
semi-formal all-campus dance, as an
annual affair. Tickets are expected
to go on sale Monday at the Union,
League, and diagonal.
All feather merchants at Willow
Run are especially invited to attend.
The VO is making every effort to
sponsor a mixer so that veterans at
Willow Run may have an opportunity
to meet University women heore the

the dance, and central committee
chairmen are: Elizabeth Knowles and
Edward O'Hara, publicity; Dolores
Earl and Joseph Sember, patrons;

ert Shupe, building; Marilyn Burns,
