JGP USHERING-All junior co-
eds interested in ushering for the
Junior Girls' Play March 19, 20
and 21 are requested to sign up
on the list in the Undergraduate
office in the League before Friday.
Coeds may usher one night, two
nights or for all performances.

Polgar is billed as a man who
can read minds, memorize entire
magazines at a single sitting and
hypnotize many persons simulta-
neously.
* * *
THE SHOW is divided into three
parts. Memory demonstrations
will be featured first.
Claims havebeen made by Dr.
Polgar that he can meet 100
people in rapid succession and
remember their names. He has
made a practice of paying $5 to
each person whose name he for-
gets.
The second part of the program
will be devoted to mind reading.
In a performance at the Detroit
Town Hall Forum, Polgar had his
check for the evening's work hid-
den. Using a volunteer from the
audience to give him mental direc-
tions, he found the check in four
minutes under the hat of a woman
in a crowd of 2,000 people.
HE HAS ALSO found an ob-
ject hidden under the upper plate
in a man's mouth and a war stamp
concealed in an office on the fif-
teenth floor of a skyscraper.
Concluding the performance
will be a demonstration of hyp-
notism, the featured portion of
the show. Members of the audi-
ence will be invited to take part
in the exhibition.
Polgar gained national publicity
when he hypnotized the Georgia,
Tech football team the day before
they were to play Alabama. Geor-
gia Tech won the game.
WHEN GEORGIA TECH lost
their game the following week
without Polgar's services, Atlanta
papers proclaimed, "The team
needs Polgar."
Polgar, who lists college stu-
dents as his best subjects and
New Yorkers as the most dif-
ficult, has hypnotized approxi-
mately 75,000 persons.
The subconscious mind still
functions during hynosis, Polgar,
holder of the degrees of doctor of
psychology and doctor of econom-
ics from Budapest University, has
emphasized.

Junior Coeds
Begin Work
On Comedy
Dancing, Singing Cast
Swing into Rehearsals
For Annual JGP Event
Last week junior coeds began
working on the annual class proj -
ect, Junior Girls' Play, as the cast
of over 100 players started rehears-
als and the various committees
began operations for the extrava-
ganza March 19, 20 and 21.
All the available space in the
League has been utilized by the
junior women as the dancing,
singing and uke choruses began
practices for the original show
written by Jane Thompson, '54.
Costume creations and scenery
designs have been drawn up for
committee members to follow while
they paint, sew and organize the
various phases of the production.
All junior women are invited to
participate in their show exclaimed
Mary Hodges, general chairman of
the JGP central committee.
Workers are particularly needed
in the costume department.
Experience is not needed to qual-
ify for this committee work. "If
you can thread a needle or hold
straight pins, there is a place for
you in JGP," Miss Hodges ex-
plained.
Any junior woman who wishes
to work on the play production
may sign up in the Undergraduate
office of the League or call Miss
Hodges at 24547.
Working on the various commit-
tees for JGP gives coeds an oppor-
tunity to meet and make new
friends as well as help to produce
JGP.
Committee members will also be
able to participate in the Senior
Night festivities.
JGP is an annual event, a mu-
sical comedy usually based on some
phase in the life of a young girl.
Entirely original, the three act
play is written, produced and di-
rected by the women of the junior
class. Music and lyrics for the
songs are also original.
Every year the $1 class dues that
are collected from all coeds in the
junior class help to produce the
show. Proceeds from the show go
toward a worth while cause.
This year all proceeds from JGP
will help to decorate the new "Bar-
bara Little Room" in the League.

Opportunities to learn n e w
sports skills or to become more
proficientin familiar ones are of-
fered to University men and wo-
men by the sports and co-recre-
ation clubs sponsored by the Wo-
men's Athletic Association.
Three of these clubs, rifle,
camp counselors and ballet, which
will reorganize this week, have in-
vited all interested students to at-
tend these meetings.
THE BALLET CLUB, one of
eight co-recreational clubs spon-
sored by the WAA, will hold a
meeting for intermediate dancers
at 7:15 p.m. today in Barbour
Gymnasium Dance Studio.
All men and women interest-
ed in ballet who have had no
training, are invited to attend
the beginner's class at 8:15 p.m.
The club will provide its mem-
bers with instruction and oppor-
tunity for performance.
* * *
MEMBERS ARE also encourag-
ed to try their hand at choreo-
graphy. Some of the resulting
compositions will be used in club
presentations.
The club presents its programs
in cooperation with the Modern
Dance Club.
Vera Simon is manager of the
club.
ANY COED interested in riflery
may attend the reorganizational
meeting of the Rifle Club at 7:30
p.m. today in WAB.
Beginners as well as "expert
marksmen" are invited to mem-
bership in the club. Instruction
will be provided by club mem-
bers and by Miss Pearl Berlin,
faculty advisor.
Postal matches with o t h e r
schools are often held by the club,
as well as "shoulder to shoulder"
matches within the club.
WOMEN MARKSMEN will also
compete with the men's rifle team
in a shooting match. Plans are

also being made to enter a team
in the National Rifle Association
Intercollegiate Women's Match.
Another of the clubs open to
coeds is the Camp Counselor's
Club, which will reorganize at
7:30 p.m. tomorrow in the fen-
cing room at Barbour Gym.

nounced.

Will the Hawiian Hula dance of
Miss Audrey McIntyre continue to
be part of Saturday's Gulantics
Variety Review or will an act by
Miss Machinery be substituted?
This problem was thrown di-
rectly into the laps of the Gulan-
tics committee members at last'
night's stormy session.
Just before the paper went to
press, a spokesman for the com-
mittee reported that support for
the two hula acts was equally di--
vided.
At the present time the more
conservative members of the com-
mittee favor Miss McIntyre, a Uni-
versity student who learned to do
the hula while studying at the
University of Hawaii last summer.
However, some of the seniors on
the committee vociferously sided
with Tom Sparrow, '53, publicity
chairman, who insisted that Miss
Machinery appear on the program
to safeguard Gulantics exclusive
billing as Michigan's biggest va-
riety production.
When interviewed after the
meeting, Len Sanford, '54, ex-
pressed concern over the future of
the star if she performed Saturday
in Hill Auditorium.
Sanford feared that the eventual
effect of the act would produce
an unprecidented epidemic of
strained neck and eye muscles
among males in the audience.
According to Sanford, there's
no way of predicting just what
line of action the infuriated coeds
in the audience will take if the
controversial dancer takes to the
stage.
One spokesman ventured that
the services of the Ann Arbor po-
lice-force might be needed for the
first time in Gulantics history to
keep the talent program's record
clean.
Confronted with these charges
of disrupting the program, Miss
Machinery indignantly told re-
porteds, "it's a lei."
While all this controversy was

thrown back and forth through-
out the meeting, students on the
committee eventually agreed on a
few major issues.
Rejecting an "early birds" mo-
tion that ticket sales begin at 8
a.m., the group decided that the
ducats will remain on sale from 10
a.m. to 5 p.m. every day this week
at the Hill Auditorium Box Office.
In a routine move the Gulantics
committee approved the appear-
ances of Mel Sach's Orchestra, the
Novelaires, and the Men's Glee
Club, who will perform during the
intermission periods between the
competing acts.
A faculty trio presenting a sur-
prise act will complete the show.
Women Voters
The Campus League of Wo-
men Voters will meet at 7:30
p.m. today in the Student-Fa-
culty Lounge of the League.
The topic for discussion will be
"Your Role in Local Affairs."
All interested women are in-
vited to attend.

CONSEQUENTLY the subject
cannot be induced to follow a hyp-
notic suggestion against his basic
code of right and wrong, he states.
Polgar's extraordinary powers
were acquired after a bomb ex-
plosion buried him in an Hun-
garian army trench for three
days during World War I. After
months in a hospital, he re-
gained his lost speech and nem-
ory, but the strong telepathic
quality remained.
Jerry Van Otteran is chairman
of the committee sponsoring Pol-
gar's appearance.
