Senior Night
Brings Back,
Past Scenes
Coeds Indicate Status
At Traditional Dinner,
Witness Annual JGP
If senior women retained any
doubts about the nearness of grad-
uation, they were dispelled last
Attending one of their last func-
tions together seniors watched a
program which brought forth
laughter on the surface combined
with warm memories of the Sen-
ior's 1953 Junior Girls' Play, a
slightly off-pitch Sophomore Cab-
aret and Frosh' Weekend.
Quite a stir was also created
when the moment came for the
seniors to indicate whether they
were married e Agaged, pinned or
While much surprise was reg-
istered when 29 married students
carried candles, 52 coeds exchang-
ed their fraternity pins for the
practical safety pins, and 88 en-
gaged seniors sucked lemons, the
loudest clatter was produced as
248 unattached females dropped
pennies, one for each birthday, into
a wishing well.
General Chairman for the "Sen-
for Fling" Barb Mazer later re-
vealed that the money would go
to charity.
Then came the premiere per-
formance of the 1954 Junior
Girls' Play.
Using their prerogative to call
for repeats of songs and lines spar-
ingly in the first acts, the coeds
"went wild" over Senator McSmar-
tee's (Delores Messinger) investi-
gation of the "pink" Low Slung
Island. They witnessed this scene
four times.
"Happy Things," "America USA"
and "Tickled Pink" also earned
cries of respect.
However the show did not end
with JGP; this the seniors dis-
covered when they returned to
their rooms. The juniors had been
at work.

Job Guidance
Will Be Given
Conference To Offer
Career Information
Problems about choosing a ma-
jor for concentration and prepar-I
ing for a future job will be dis-
cussed at the first of the League's
career conferences at 1:30 p~m.
Saturday, March 27.
Entitled "Keys To Your Fu-
ture," the conference will offer
discussions, pointers and indivi-
dual help by both literary college
professors and college graduates
already working in various fields.
The conference will be divided
into two parts. The first part
will consist of a panel discus-
sion, "Value of the Humanities
in Earning a Living," with Prof.
Marvin Felheim of the English
department, Prof. Edgar Willis
of the speech department, Prof.
Otto Graf of the language de-
partment, Prof. Howard Ehr-
mann of the history department
and Miss Mildred Webber of the
Bureau of Appointments partici-
pating in the discussion.
Following the panel discussion,
the group will split up into spec-
ialized sections dealing with var-
ious particular vocational inter-
These four groups, dealing with
speech, history, English and lan-
guages will be headed by the four
professors participating in the
panel. There will also be gradu-
ates in each of the sections who
are working in the particular
fields and they will give their per-
sonal experiences in the jobs.
Students attending each sec-
tion will be able to ask specific
questions of the professors and
graduates who will attempt to
clarify many of the problems
confronting undergraduates.
Because many women come to
college and major in a liberal arts
program without too much idea
of what type of work they will go
into when they graduate, it is
hoped that this conference will
give specific information about job
opportunities in the humanities.

Engineers are in high hopes that
their prized slide rule will remain
undiscovered by the lawyers until
tomorrow, when the annual Slide
Rule Ball will take place from 9
p.m. to 1 a.m. in the League Ball-
The success of this dance de-
pends on the appearance of the
giant rule as part of the decora-
tions. Traditionally the barristers
try to foil this attempt by discov-
ering its whereabouts and display-
ing it at their own Crease Ball.
"Spring Prelude," the theme
of the ball will be carried out
with the use of giant silhouettes
depicting various scenes of
spring. Green and yellow will
be the predominant colors,
along with other bright gay
colors typical of the season.
During intermission, couples'


will be entertained by the "Novel-
aires," a vocal quartet composed
of Bob McGrath, Dave Calahan,
Ara Berbarian and Dick Frank.
This group was the winner of the
1952 Gulantics.
Among their selections will be
"'Twas Just A Garden in the
Rain," "Laura," "College Days,"
and one of their favorites, "We
Mel Sachs and his orchestra
will be featured, with their spe-
cialty in South American music.
They have played at various fra-
ternity and dormitory dances.

be given out.
Tickets, priced at $2.50 per
couple, may still be purchased to-
day at the Engineering Arch, in
the Technic office, or at the door.
