Song titles will provide the
theme for Assembly's Fortnite to
be given Monday, Nov. 22.
"Skits on the Scales" has been
chosen as the name of the event
at which women's residence halls
will present short acts in compe-
tition for an award.
Originally Fortnite took place
over a two-week period. Three sep-
arate ceremonies were held dur-
ing this time, including recogni-
tion of scholastic achievement,
installation of house presidents
and a skit night. These have now
been combined to make up enter-
tainment for one evening, high-
lighted by the skit competition.
Women who are Interested in
emcee-ing Fortnite are asked to
prepare a dialogue for the audi-
tion from 3:15 to 5:30 p.m. Wed-
nesday in the League. This year
two women will work together in
the position, and coeds are re-
quested to audition in pairs.
Coeds interested in participat-
ing in the event in other capaci-
ties may take part in the skit of
their residence house. Chairman
Claudia Smith hopes that all in-
dependent women will attend
Fortnite in suport of their houses.

Those hunger pangs after closing
hours in women's dorms can reach
disastrous proportions, and it is
with this in mind that the dorm
stores keep their doors open after
that confining 10:30 curfew.
Dormitory stores, operating ex-
clusively in women's residence
halls, are a project of Assembly
Association. All supplies are or-
dered through the League by Judy
Jennis, Assembly Business Chair-
Each dorm has its own chair-
man, who decides the best hours
to keep the store open and takes
charge of the supplies and money
within the house.
The stores sell cigarettes, candy,
pretzels, cookies and potato chips
as well as necessities like tooth-
paste, soap, Kleenex and personal
items. According to Miss Jennis,
the most popular sellers are cig-
arettes and candy.
There are now nine women's
residences participating in the proj-
ect. "I hope that more will show
an interest in having stores, since
they are such a convenience to the
residents," commented Miss Jen-
The dormitory stores are one

Diwali, an Indian religious fes-
tival, will be commorated by a
dinner sponsored by the India
Student Association at 6:30 p.m.
today at Lane Hall.
According to Indian students on
campus, there are many accounts
of the origin of Diwali Day.
One popular version concerns
Lord Krishna. It is believed he.
was a god who came to India in
the form of man and killed Narka-
sur, an evil demon. In celebration
of this event, the people begin
the ne wyear.
Many Indians believe that Ram,
a god in the form of man, agreed
to stay in exile 14 years to keep
a promise to his father. After this
period, Ram returned to the capi-
tal to claim his throne. The date
of his return is known as Diwali
Diwali Day, festival of lights,
marks the beginning of the Indi-
an calendar. The celebration ex-
tends for three or four days at the
end of October or the beginning of
November. The holiday has as
as much importance in India as
Christmas has here.
Worship of the goddess of
wealth is a very important cere-
mony. Business people start new
account books by placing them at
the feet of the statue or picture of
the goddess overnight, to be bless-
After the dinner in celebration
of Diwali Day, the Indians will
give a program of folk songs and
dances. The program will begin
at 8:30 p.m. The dinner is for
members of the Association and
their guests, but the program is
open to all.
