JGP Boasts 46 Year
S. State St. just off N. U. in Campus Town
from 9:30 A.M. to 9:00 P.M.
Formerly for Senior Coeds Only
By PAT BROWNSON
Prom the first production of the
Junior Girls' Play, staged in 1904
by six junior women, JGP has ris-
eri to become one of the biggest
traditional events held each year
on the Michigan campus.
The play, first given in the Sar-
ah Caswell Angell Hall of Barbour
Gymnasium, was shown only once
in a private performance for sen-
* .or women. In 1905 "Every Senior"
was performed "for the warning
and moral awakening of the sen-
ar girls." Another JGP, held in
1912, was opened to all women on
A PERFORMANCE of "The
Comeback" was held in Toledo in
1915, while "Yankie Yogie" of
1916 was seen by Detroiters.
Men in Ann Arbor were not al-
lowed to attend the play until
1923 when it was staged at the
Whitney Theater, downtown.
JGP would often run for a
week during the period from
1922 to 1928 when proceeds were
donated to the Michigan League
building fund. Since the con-
struction of the League the play
has been presented each year in
the Lydia Mendelssohn Theater.
Some of the outstanding per-
formances were: "For the Love of
Pete" in 1928; "A Feather in Her
Cap," 1937; "A Mulberry Bush,"
1938; and "No Questions Asked,"
EARLY PLAYS were not written
chiefly by junior women, but by
other students, alumni and pro-
fessors. "Take It From There" in
1945 was the first play entirely
written, directed, produced and
acted by junior women.
Since then, "There's Room for
All," 1946; "The Best Years,"
1947; "Make Mine Michigan,"
1948; and last year's "Fate of the
Union" have been presented to
the campus as original under-
takings by the junior women.
Theme of the play is kept secret
until the first performance is
given privately for the senior wo-
men. On this night seniors may
wear their caps and gowns for the
first time when they attend a din-
ner and then march to the Men-
delssohn theatre where they par-
ade across the stage.
In the parade married women
carry candles, engaged women
suck lemons, pinned women wear
straight pins and unattached wo-
men throw pennies, one for each
year of their age, into the wishing
well to signify their status.
Held in the latter part of March
each year, the show, which is us-
ually presented on three consecu-
