WISHES AND PENNIES-Unattached senior women are shown
here depositing a penny for each year of their age into the
"wishing well" at last night's Senior Night. After dinner the
seniors previewed this year's JGP production. Senior Night, an
annual tradition, is the last opportunity senior coeds have to
work together on a project.


On the J40o/e

Showtime brought junior coeds
a standing ovation from graduat-
ing coeds last evening as they
presented "Cock-a-Hoop" before
an enthusiastic Senior Night au-
Calls of "repeat, repeat," echoed
through the Lydia Mendelssohn
theatre over and over as the hon-
ored audience called back almost
every number.
Narrating in music, dance and
action the trials of 14 girls jobless
in New York City, JGP traced
their story as they plan and pre-
sent a show.
Numbers Repeated
First calls of "repeat were
heard during the second musical
number, in which the coeds go
through a "Pet Shop" routine.
Cominediene Luan Fiber rang up
the applause soon after with "As
Bad As You Feel." Her "Florence
Nightingale and the Dying Sol-
dier" skit brought peals of laugh-
ter from the over 400 seniors mak-
ing up the audience.
In a somewhat different mood,
"What a Lovely Day" took its
share of the spotlight in the tran-
sition scene, before the second act
entry of a "couple o' country cous-
After a repeat of "What's Be-
neath the Surface," brightly cos-
tumed choruses took the stage to
depict in song and dance the
"homebody," "sophisticate" and
Curtain Calls
After seeing everyone back on
the stage for a "Cock-a-Hoop" fin-
ale, the senior coeds demanded
several curtain calls and gave the
performers a standing ovation.
The show will be presented again
at 8 p.m. today and tomorrow be-
fore an all-campus audience. Tick-
ets are now on sale for 90 cents per
person. Sophomore coeds are in-
vited to attend a special matinee
showing at 2:30 p.m. tomorrow at
a 50 cent admission.
Before finding their seats for the
JGP production, the senior coeds
attended the traditional Senior
Night festivities.
Hillel Services
Phi Sigma Delta will con-
duct services at 7:15 p.m. to-
night at Hillel. There will be a
sermon and discussion on the
topic "Israel and Judaism," The

Ther~s ee more to
Chevrolet styling
than meets the ee
This is heauty with a bonus. . for Chevrolet
styling is designed to add safety and comfort
while you drive, and to return greater value
when you trade.
Truly modern lines are shaped by usefulness. You
can see what we mean in the deep crystal curve of
Chevrolet's Sweep-Sight windshield . . . a dramatic
style note, certainly, but one that stems from the need
for wider, safer vision. Or take high-set taillights-
they add to the impressive length of line . . . but
they are up where they can be seen for safety's sake.
The smart louvers across the hood aren't just dec-
oration ... they mark the intake for the High-Level
ventilation system for cleaner, fresher air. And the
whole shape of the body-its lowness, the dipped belt
line-is merely a reflection of a lowered center of
gravity, the added stability.
This is truly functional styling that serves you
better every mile, and preserves its value against the
distant day when you trade. This is Body by Fisher
-another Chevrolet exclusive in the low-price field.
Come in and let us demonstrate that this new Chev-
rolet is just as exciting to drive as to look at!
