Junior Women Write, Direct Annual JGP Production

Skirt, Blouse, Sweater Combinations Add
Variety, Versatility to Coeds' Wardrobes

When the curtain rises on the
Junior Girls Play, the audience
will witness a show backed by
many years of fine performances
and a long tradition.
JGP provides coeds with an op-
portunity to prove that this is
really "a woman's world." Not only
is the play written, directed and
produced solely by women, but the
cast is entirely feminine.
Part of the tradition of JGP is
the sneak preview of the drama
given to senior women before the
official opening night.
With public presentation of the

day and Saturday, March 23 and
24, juniors are already scouting
talent from their class. Coeds are
urged to try out for parts involv-
ing comedy, music, dancing, dra-
ma, and specialty and instrumen-
tal acts.
Tryouts will be held the first
week of the second semester from
1956 production slated for Fri-
Feb. 14 through 20.
For those wanting to work be-
hind the scenes, a mass meeting is
scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 1.
At this meeting, junior women
will be able to sign up for com-

mittees including stage, costumes,
make-up, publicity, students, pro-
grams, properties, tickets and
Directed By Committee
Chosen on the basis of petitions
and interviews, 26 junior women
will act as a central committee to
present the play
General chairman Nancy Mac-
Donald will be assisted by Jan
Doggett. Sue Arnold and Ellie
Hooper will direct the script writ-
ten by Sally Miller.
Taking notes and keeping up
correspondence for the group will

be secretary Alicia Tarrant while
Jean Newell will collect junior
class dues.
Group Chairmen
Heading the stage crew will be
Katy O'Harra and Carol Kirsch-
ner. Costumes will be designed by
Thelma Kavanaugh and Nancy
Applying the grease paint will
be a committee under the direc-
tion of Mary Bloemendal and Sal-
ly Lyons.
Roberta Arnold will be assisted
by Gaille Valentine and Peggy
McGrath as she creates dance

routines to the original musical
score of Judy Shagrin, music
chairman, and Judy Huber, chor-
al director.
Publicizing the juniors' biggest
project will be Joan Sayles. Vir-
ginial Royal will handle stunts
and Janie Fowler will cover the
production for the Daily.
Dee Galonska will design the
programs, with Abby Justice
heading ticket sales. Properties
will be located by Mary Sue Curry
and Sara Truesdell, and ushers
will be under the leadership of
Ann Sterling.

Separates will continue to reign ,
this fall, turning the typical coed's
ensemble into "skirt 'n blouse" andt
"skirt 'n sweater" combinations.c
Many of the skirts and blouses1
can be bought separately, but have
been carefully color-matched to;
appear as a dress when worn to-
gether, Match-mates can also be
found in nylon, wool and cashmere]
A boon to the coed's ironing
problem are the new gypsy skirts
and "dark fall cottons"
They are gaily full skirts made;

with two rows of gathering guar-c
anteed to eliminate ironing. Thei
dark cottons are also made of
crease-resistant materials to save;
time and money.c
A greater variety of colors is now
available in sailcloth playclothes,
which can be worn year 'round.
The sailcloth is available in
bright hues of green, blue, red, yel-
low, orange, brown, purple and also
comes in black and light blue.
New Denim Uses1
Denim, too, has been dressed up,+
almost beyond recognition. A. full,

white evening denim skirt, decorat-
ed with three huge wild fishes,
reminiscent of the popular felt
skirts, and a scoop-necked pastel
denim evening blouse make a strik-
ing combination.
Fall versions of the collegiate
"boy" shirt blouses are being shown
tailoring touches. They come in all
sorts of striped, polkadot, plaid,
prints and plain designs.
Tight-legged toreador pants and
bermuda shorts have also grown
extremely popular with college
