When'several hundred coeds

year, the result is another pres-
entation of Soph Cabaret-a full

Years ago, sophomore women
presented a circus in one form
or another as their annual proj-
ect, like the "Bungling Brothers
Circus" of 1927. which was affil-
iated with the Annual League in
Sarah Caswell Angell Hall.
The sophomorebclass of 1929
decided to add a bit of sophisti-
cation and inaugurated the
Cabaret. First offered in . Bar-
bour Gymnasium, the Cabaret
was a successful venture.
The production gained popu-
larity with a variety of enter-
tainment including floorshows,
dancing and novelty booths, as-
suring the Cabaret a lasting place
in campus life.
Moved to the League in 1931,
the Cabaret represented a Mardi
Gras. The hit of the produc-
tion was a puppet chorus, in
which the women wore masks,
characteristic of the theme.

Nineties inspired "Brass Rail" in
1933, and "Pseudo Psilly Sym-
phony" was the title in 1935.
Monte Carlo was the theme
of the Cabaret in 1941. The
production fell on the two days
before Pearl Harbor and was
discontinued after this per-
formance for several years be-
cause of the war.
When the Cabaret was resumed
in 1944 with the "Music Box," it
was enlarged to cover the entire
second floor of the League as it
The Cabaret has a four-fold
purpose: to bring the sopho-

and to provide a weekend of fun
