Frosh Teams
Plan Dances
This year's Frosh Weekend to
be held Fri. and Sat., April 18 and
19, is getting into full swing with
various organizational meetings of
oth eams.
Maize team is holding floor-
tryouts this afternoon from
3 p.m. in the League and next
ednesday from 7 to 9 p.m.
Frosh Weekend dates back to
1948 when it was held with the
purpose of initiating Freshmen
women into League activities.
Since that time competition be-
tween the two teams has grown
into a traditional rivalry that is
settled the nights of the show by
judges who award the plaque of
honor to the winning team.
Committees for the two teams
were chosen at a mass meeting in
the League Wednesday night.

for the dance which is semi-
formal. The senior committee
suggests that men wear suits
and women choose between
"dressy" dresses, cocktail attire
or formals.
A modernized Mother Goose set-
ting has been chosen for the theme
of the annual ball. Characters
from famous nursery rhymes will
closely resemble "Joe Colleges"
and "Mary Coeds" seen on any
campus.
* * *
GEORGIE PORGIE in white
bucks and grey flannels will be
"kissing the girls and making
them cry" and Little Boy Blue,
star halfback, will be hard at work
studying and "deemphasizing."
Ol' King Cole will have his ID
checked at the door and Jack and
Jill will climb Beer Mountain for
the occasion.
DON BARI and his orchestra
will be playing from beneath
Humpty's well-known "wall." Bari,
who is well-known in Detroit, has
provided the music at several
campus events this year.
Couples attending Senior Ball
will have an opportunity to pre-
view this year's Union Opera
during the intermission. A spe-
cialty act from the show will be
given, followed by a Charleston
dancing contest.
A local jewelry store has con-
tributed a trophy which will be
awarded to the winning couple.
Programs decorated on a gradu-
ation theme will also be given at
the door. Coeds are-requested not
to wear corsages in keeping with
campus custom.

RISING TO THE OCCASION-Getting ready for the March 20, 21 and 22 performances of Junior
Girls' Play, Jody Steinkamp, left, and members of her stage and scenery committee check set direc-
tions so that the cast may rehearse without fear of walking through walls or into trees. Entitled
"Heavenly Days," the play will be centered about college life.

Cast and committee members
for "Heavenly Days," Junior Girls'
Play production, have risen to the
occasion and given up a large part
of their social life for the past
three weeks while rehearsals have
been in progress. ,
Scheduled for Thursday, March
20 through Saturday, March 22,
including the Thursday Senior
Night performance. JGP requires
a tremendous amount of work and
time by the cast, committees, and
the central committee.
GETTING THE SHOW into
shape, Nancy Born, director, has
had the usual trials and tribula-
tions.
With rehearsals being held
almost every night including
weekend nights, the problem of
men has confronted the direc-
tor.
Men who have been kept in the
background by JGP spend their
Friday and Saturday nights figur-
ing out ways to get into rehearsals
in order to make late dates after
rehearsals lasting until midnight.
* * *
ANOTHER PROBLEM which
confronted Miss Born was a re-
sult of confused set plans. It is

always hard for the cast to ima-
gine just where the sets are to be
but with confusion in the plans
yet, there were women making
their grand entrances and exits
through walls that had not yet
been set up. Imagine their surprise
on opening night when they would
have discovered that their big
scene took place behind a set wall!
During one week of rehearsals
there was a pervading air of
gloom, for Sue Ralston, one of
the leading characters, had set
up residence in Health Service
with a case of flu and a lost
voice. Even during that week the
show carried on, however, for
Miss Born stood in a for the
stricken actress.
The committees have had their
share of work and troubles along
with the cast.
The stage and scenery commit-
tee has had to have rehearsals of
its own aside from regular re-
hearsals because there are so
many scenery changes that have
to be made in a matter of sec-
onds. Between two scenes, a dorm-
itory settng has to be changed to
a railroad station scene in one
minute. /
* * *
THE MAKE-UP committee has{
been working on somewhat the
same principal that a first-aid
committee works, by practicing on
each other. Although the members
have not as yetuhad to bandage
each other up, they have had to
use plastic noses and other beauty
aids on each other when practic-
ing character make-up.
Because "Heavenly Days" cov-
ers a period of a great many
years, there is a tremendous
range of costumes for which the

costume committee is responsi-
ble. Some of the parts require as
many as nine costume changes
throughout the play. Hence,
many an hour has been spent at
the sewing machine by Nancy
Eichenlaub and her committee.
JGP central committee, which
has been working on the show
since last spring, is composed of
Joan Brown, chairman; Jo Phil-
lips, assistant chairman; Nancy
Born, director; Nancy Baehre, as-
sistant director; Paggy Zager,
secretary and Nancy Pridmore,
treasurer.
Others are Nancy Eichenlaub,
costumes; Margy Boos, make-up
with Catherine Toarmina as her
assistant; Berta Houston, music;
Evelyn Brooks, composer and ar-
ranger; Sally Hansen, choral;
Sally Gouldthorpe, programs and
Pat Texter, properties with Meryle
Reiss her assistant.
The list continues with Donna
Mayer, publicity with Carolyn Fisk,
Barbara Cole and Bev Arble her
assistants; Jody Steincamp, scen-
ery; Diane Harris and Faith Krue-
ger, script and Diane Harris, stage
manager.
Ann Black is in charge of tick-
ets, Dona Davenport, ushers and
Nancy Nelson, dance with Dorcas
Strong her assistant.
