sentative - in charge of auditioning.
Auditions will be conducted from

be held Saturday, Jan. 8.
Gulantics is the only campus re-
view that depends upon the audi-
ence's reaction to determine the
winners of the three cash prizes
which will be given. Applause, as
registered by an audiometer, will
decide the winners.
Profits for Awards
The League handles the talent
for the production, the Union man-
ages the staging and the Men's
Glee Club looks after finances and
takes care of the publicity. Prof-
its from the show are used in the

director of the Glee Club, in an ef-
fort to give students a chance to
show their talent, a contest was

Sophomore coeds are making fi-
nal preparations for the Soph Scan-
dals weekend of dancing and vari-
ety shows today and tomorrow.
Two original performances will
highlight the entertainment for
each evening. The first show will
include "Chief Michidrama," who
will introduce scenes depicting col-
lege days throughrthe ages.
"Chief Michigrama" will an-
nounce skits on the football days,
dateless days, and the effects of
war days.
Coeds have made up acts featur-
ing special places on college cam-
puses all over the country, includ-
ing Michigan State, Harvard and
the University of Miami.
Decorations will be in keeping
with the themes of the shows. The
corridor of the second floor of the
League will display s c e n e s,
"through the ages."
Each room will be decorated to
represent the colleges mentioned in
the skits. The Michigan Room, to
be used for refreshments, will re-
semble the Grill of the Union of
Michigan State, while lounges will
have scenes from tropical Miami
to provide an atmosphere of relax-
Both variety shows will be pre-
sented in the Hussey Room.
Red Johnson and his Orchestra
will provide music in the main
ballroom and Earl Pearson and his
Orchestra will perform in the Van-
denberg Room.
Tickets are now on sale at the

League, on the Diagonal and in
the residence halls. They are
priced at$1.80 per couple and 90
cents per person.%
According to the central commit-
tee, students may come in couples
or stag.
In previous years, the sophomore
productions were known as Soph
Cabaret. This year several new
ideas are being introduced, such as
two orchestras for both evenings
and two different shows instead of
the game booths and carnival-like
atmosphere which usually pre-
vailed, according to Mary Lee Bir-
mingham, general chairman.
Hillel Services
To Be Conducted
By Two Guests
Hillel Foundation evening serv-
ices at 7:15 p.m. today will be
conducted by Rabbi Joseph Katz
and Cantor Martin Glancz of Tem-
ple B'nai Israel of Saginaw.
The topic of the speech will be
"On the Future of American Juda-
ism-A Tercentenary Topic."
Rabbi Katz has traveled extens-
ively in Europe and the near east.
He has held pulpits in Liverpool,
England; Nyack, N.Y., and Mont-
clair, N.Y.
Rabbi Katz hopes to further an
understanding of Jewish culture
in the city of Saginaw. As one of
his future projects he plans to
bring a forum of outstanding Jew-
ish personalities in art, education,
music and religion to the city.
While he has been in Saginaw, a
new Community Center has been
built, which houses all of the reli-
gious, educational and social af-
fairs of the Jewish Community.
