Frosh Weekend Publicity
To Begin in Blue Tomorrow


Whether or not students feel
sad, tomorrow is the day the whole
campus wears blue.
The Blue team of Frosh Week-
end has announced that tomorrow
Is "Blue Monday." As part of the
piblicity for their team, the girls
have decided to continue the pre-
cedent set by last year's Blue
team ,committee.
Weekend, the Maize and Blue, vie
a with each other in frantic compe-
tition until the night of the dance.
Points are given to both teams for
publicity, dance, floor show, and
anything and everything else
which might prove that one team
has surpassed the other.
Since the Blue team was the
- victor last year, the freshmen
are determined not to surrender
their conquest.
Ann Hagan, publicity chairman,
urged all freshmen women who
have not already signed up on
committees to do so immediately.
The Undergraduate office of the
" League can give any needed infor-
A THE DANCE will be presented
April 28 and 29. As was done last
year, the Maize team gives 'the
dance one night, while the Blue
team takes over the next night.
The class of 1952 was the first
to attempt to get freshmen
women in activities. The dance
was such a success that the
idea for -two teams has carried
over to this year.

The rivalry, the secrecy, and the
utter contempt of the two teams

Hillel To Present
Residence Skits

"Hillelzapoppin," Hillel's annual
presentation of a bill of skits, will
be given at 7:45 p.m. Sunday, April
23 in Pattengill Auditorium. r
Originating in 1940, the event
has continued to grow in popu-
larity until now it has attained the
apex of Hillel's social program.
* * *
DURING THE war years, "Hill-
elzapoppin" was temporarily dis-
continued because of the lack of
potential players. However, it was
returned in grand style in 1945
and has carried on in full swing
ever since.
A decade ago when the tradi-
tion was started, many Hillel
members felt that there was a
need for an event each year in
which the creative talents of
' the students could be exploited.
The creation of "Hillelzapoppin"
served this desire as well as a good
cause, for the proceeds of the
show are donated to the United
Jewish Appeal each year.
* * *Tg
THEREFORE as the general

chairman termed it, the cast and
the audience have a lot of fun
and also contribute to something
worthwhile at the same time.
Any student residence, fra-
ternity or sorority is eligible to
submit a skit for the show. The
scripts are chosen by the com-
mittee on .the basis of their
originality and dramatic ap-
Out of the scripts submitted this
year, five have been chosen for
presentation at the show. Of these
five, the play showing the most ef-
fective preparation and originality
will be named as the winner.
* *
FIVE JUDGES will weigh the
comparative merits of the skits,
and a gold loving cup will be
awarded to the best one. The judg-
es will be chosen according to
their ability to criticise such a
Any group that wins the cup for
three consecutive years is allowed
to keep it permanently.
