As the apple of the junior class
eye, the coming Junior Girls' Play

more women who will petition for
League posts Monday.
Central committee members who
will be chosen from those inter-
viewing will be responsible for or-
gaizing a committee, consulting
with the general chairman and so-
cial director of the League, and
submitting a budget.
GENERAL DUTIES of central
committee will also include at-
tending -all central committee
meetings and writing their own re-
ports for presidents' reports. An
aid to them in their petitioning
will be reports of previous com-

all general committees as well as

man checks eligibility cards and
arranges appointments. She is
the general consultant for the
committees and secures permis-
sion from Dean Rea as well as
takes charge of social functions of
the central committee.

THE DIRECTOR of J.G.P. act-
ing as the general head of stage
production, is responsible for ac-
quainting herself with the script,
holding try-outs, directing re-
hearsals, and coordinating and di-
recting the work of all stage com-
mittees.
The assistant to this post acts
in the general manner of assist-
ing the director in all things.
Collecting dues from all junior
women, checking budgets of each
committee member and making

Love is an ailment common to
people all over the world, but cus-
toms associated with romance are
unique in every culture.
In the old Caribbean city of
Trinidad, the love life of the popu-
lation is regulated by a carefully-
prescribed code of conduct.
IN TRINIDAD, for instance, it is
the duty of the ever-vigilant chap-
erone to see that couples indulge
in no kissing before marriage.
Twosomes are smart to avoid a
chaperone's displeasure. The in-
stitution of hand-holding is also
strictly governed.
Only those couples who are

By MARJE SCHMIDT
The call of the wild, that scintillating "spring fever," has its hold
on some of the more socially minded, and this weekend is dragging
them to the hinterlands for baseball and picnicking.
The Sigma Phis with their dates in conjunction with the Alpha
Delts and their "better halves" will take off early tomorrow afternoon
for the wide open spaces. A spirited softball game will ensue with pic-
nic and all the trimmings later in the afternoon.
THE THETA XI's and their women will separate into two teams
for a twilight softball game tomorrow, also. 'Twill be their first out-
door weiner roast of the season and they plan to start things off with
a bang!
With due respect to another campus faction, the AK Psis
have planned a "Thank Heaven Lent's Over" party for tomorrow
evening. As the title would suggest, everyone should be prepared
to engage in some activity or activities which he has given up for
Lent. Needless to say the evening should be quite a "questionable"
mixture of oddities.
Delta Sigma Delta will hold its pledge at the chapter house from
9 p.m. until midnight tomorrow. The Art Rice Combo will provide the
musical highlights of the evening.
THE ZBT'S "April in Paris" party should be quite a suitable one
to start off their outdoor season, providing the skies remain bright
and clear. They plan to decorate their yard and back drive along the
typical Parisienne lines.
Small, cozy tables-for-two with checked tablecloths and a
minimum of candle light will grace their back lawn. The Arch of
Triumph and various other sections of the Paris skyline will be
seen against the trees and other natural backdrops.
The Easter theme will hold sway at the Zeta Psi domain from 9'
p.m. until midnight tomorrow. Dave Wise and his six piece orchestra
will do the musical honors. A neutral egg nog and other seasonal re-
freshments will be served during the evening.
ALPHA CHI SIGMA will hold a semi-formal, decorations along
the spring theme, from 9 p.m. until midnight tomorrow. Chaperones
for the happy-affair will be Prof. and Mrs. Brymer Williams and Prof.
and Mrs. Allen S. Foust. It is to be a record dance, with all of the best
music available.
Another "Springtime" theme will dominate at Tau Delta Phis
record dance tonight. "However," the gentleman said, "this spring-
time means clocks and is not seasonal." From all reports, those at-
tending can't help but feel that time is passing quickly. They will
be entirely surrounded by the timepieces.
The purpose of the Tau Delt party is to aid everyone in recover-
ing from the grind of a recent vacation. Sandwiches and ginger ale
will be served for refreshment when the clocks strike halfway through
the evening.
The Pi Lambda Phis have planned an informal television and
record dance party to be held at the chapter house from 9 p.m. until
midnight tonight.

"going steady" are allowed to
hold hands and then only at
specific times. Frequently a fee
is required for the pleasure.
Most young couples visit the
public parks on the evenings
they spend together. Here stra-
tegically-placed attendants sell
tickets for seats in the park."
The prices for the various seats
differ. Rocking chairs are 10 cents
each, while steel chairs can be had
at 10 cents for two tickets. To fa-
cilitate matters, tickets are trans-
ferable or may be resold should an
overbearing chaperone cut a park
visit short.
TRINIDAD'S parks and customs
are especially helpful to those who
are in search of a romantic inter-
est of the opposite sex. The parks'
walks are circular and provide for
three specific groups of promen-
aders nightly. The outer circle is
used by the women; they are seen
from the regular sidewalk along
the street, and from the concourses
of the park.
Scrutinizing eligible men walk
just inside the latter circle in
the opposite direction. If a young
lady smiles at a man in the in-
ner circle it is permissible and
often desirable for him to ask
her to walk with him. The couple
then moves into the inner cir-
cle where promenading is in
progress.
In "Tropical Byways," 100 min-
utes of colored movies, to be pre-
sentedgat 8:30 p.m. tomorrowat
Pattengill Auditorium, more de -
tails will be shown of Trinidad's
customs.
