p.m. Tuesdays and Sundays of

The records for the concerts

For Joan Brown, general chair-
man of Junior Girls' Play, this se-
mester has been a maze of sewing
costumes, painting scenery, pre-
siding over central committee
meetings and various and sundry
other things.
Miss Brown declares that a gen-
eral chairman must be a "jack of
all trades" because she is often
called upon to sew or fit costumes
(especially this year since "Heav-
enly Days" covers a long period of
time and there is a tremendous
amount of costume changes for
everyone), paint scenery or even
direct the rehearsals when a mem-
ber of the cast is absent and the
director must take her part.
She presided over the first cen-
tral committee meeting which was
held last May and during the sum-
mer spent most of her time travel-
ing between her home in Youngs-
town, O. and"Ann Arbor to get the
machinery for the show rolling.
She kept in contact with the mem-
bers of the central committee
throughout the summer and help-
ed them to organize their commit-
In the Fall, when most people
were worrying about the chances
of the Michigan football team or
how they were going to like their
new classes, Joan was working
over the JGP script with JonPhil-
lips, assistant chairman, Nancy
Born, director, Nancy Baehre, as-
sistant director and the script
writers, Diane Harris and Faith
Kreuger Gillespie.
Every Friday since school began
in the Fall, Miss Brown has pre-
sided over a central committee
meeting - and throughout the
weeks has kept busy reminding
people of what they're supposed to
be doing.
Although she is not required to
do so, Miss Brown has attended all
the rehearsals which have been in
progress for the past three weeks.
Camp Counselors
All members of the WAA
Camp Counselors' Club will
meet at 8 p. m. tomorrow in the

member of the faculty of the
Women's Physical Education
Dept., will speak on camp coun-
seling and show movies of the

a harassed member of the central
committee came to Joan saying
that the entire score of music for
the show had been lost. After a
fast and f~rious scavenger hunt,
the music was recovered. It had
not been lost at all, but only mis-
It is at times like these that
Miss Brown remains calm, cool and
collected. She says that a big part
of her job is to reassure people
that everything is sure to turn out
all right when she really isn't con-
vinced herself.
Joan Brown did not walk into
the general chairmanship of JGP
"cold," for in her freshman year
she was floorshow chairman of one
of the teams for Frosh Weekend.
She was also a member of the de-
bate team.
As a sophomore, she was a Wo-
men's Judiciary aide and a mem-
ber of the singing chorus for Soph

She states that it is necessary for
her peace of mind because if she

that they aren't really tragic at all.

Local Music Lovers
With Horns, Tubs
Playing before a well-filled audi-
torium last night, Spike Jones and
his City Slickers brought his own
peculiar type of entertainment to
a very appeciative audience.
Starting off with the usual up-
roar of washboards, auto horns,
pistol shots and regular instru-
ments, the 'Musical Depreciation
Revue' featured everything from
an impersonation of Johnny Ray's
"Little White Cloud" (complete
with watery tears) to acrobats.
Perhaps one of Jones' more f am-
ous tunes which he played was the
"Poet and Peasant Overture," ap-
propriately aranged to give full,
rein to the wacky antics that have1
made the City Slickers and their"
leader so well known.
Also featured in the fii'st half
of the show were various acts
ranging from a blond tap dancer
to a trio doing some outstanding
Along about the middle of the
first half, Jnes appeared in an-
other of his outlandish suits and
when he pulled up his trousers to
show orange fluoescent socks, the
crowd retaliated with the famed
'roll 'em up.'
To match the, fluorescent socks
and plaid suit, a dance team pre-
sented a Hawaiian dance to the
familiar "Hawaiian War Chant."
Lights were put out and all the
costumes and instruments glowedr
in the dark to make a very striking
In the second half of the "Re-
vde," Jones and his musicians gave
renditions of many of the songs
that have been so popular with the
Among those featured were
"Laura," complete with antics and
sound effects; "Chinese Mule
Train," "Melodyin F," "Holiday
for Strings" and "Chloe."
Jones' wife, Helen Grayco, star
of radio and television, sang three
songs with the orchestra playing
a sane accompaniment.
