320 South State

For the first time in four years,
Junior Girls' Play, to be presented
March 20 through 22, will be cen-
tered about college life.
Entitled "Heavenly Days," the
theme of the play is traditionally
kept secret until the first perfor-
mance which climaxes Senior
Night activities, but it has been
revealed that the play, after three
years of more worldy themes will
revert back to college days.
For many years the JGP script
stuck to a local atmosphere but
in 1949 the tradition was broken
and a play entitled "Fate of the
Union" was given.
In 1950, junior women still pre-
ferred a more universal setting
for their play and the result was
"The R e a 1 McCoy" centered
around the life of a hillbilly girl
who won a contest and a subse-
quent free trip to New York.
The third play breaking away
from the old tradition was last
year's "It's the Payoff," a story
of four young women who "must
pay the rent" and in order to do
so must produce a play.
Written, produced and acted
by junior women, JGP has risen
to become a tradition on campus
since the first production staged
in 1904 in Barbour Gymnasium
by six juniors.
Early plays were viewed only
by women. In 1923 men were first
allowed to attend, but until 1945
the plays were not always written
by junior women but by other
students, alumni and professors.
Four performances of JGP will
be given this year, with opening
night being of course Senior
Night, March 20, when senior wo-
men alone view the play and
heckle the junior actresses or re-
quest any lines or acts to be re-
peated.
Thedfirst performance for the
entire campus is scheduled for 81

p. M. Friday, March 21. Other
performances will be at 2 p. mi.
and 8 p. m. Saturday, March 22.
The admission price for JGP is
90 cents for regular shows and 7~5
cents for the Saturday matinee.
Tickets will go on sale Monday at
the Lydia Mendelssohn Theater
box office in the League.
The box office will be open from
1 p. m. to 4 p. mn. Monday through
Wednesday and 8a.n. to noon
and 1 p. m. to 4 p. m. Thursday
through Saturday.

THAT'S A HECK OF A WAY TO GIVE A DANCE!
We hired a smooth danceable band from Detroit, Don Bari by name, rather than
an expensive name outfit like Count Basie or Louie Armstrong.
THAT'S A HECK OF A WAY TO GIVE A DANCE!
We cut ticket prices to $2.50, figuring that a senior class dance should be less
expensive than other all-campus dances.
THAT'S A HECK OF A WAY TO GIVE A DANCE!
We put the dance in the Union Ballroom, to help cut hall rental and decoration
expenses, and cut our publicity budget, and voted to have no favors.
THAT'S A HECK OF A WAY TO GIVE A DANCE!
We decided to give the Senior Class a good dance at the lowest cost possible.
It may be a hell of a way to give a dance, but we think it's pretty nice!
