Many University coeds believe
that this school doesn't offer a
curriculum that will provide a
stepping stone for a career in show
However, the Department of
Physical Education for Women
provides a program in which a
coed may major in a dance con- '
centrate and minor in speech and
physical education. While the em-
phasis is on teacher training, the
student can go on to professional

"I'm having fun working with
the students on Soph Show,"
stated Ted Heisel, professional di-
rector of the Ann Arbor Civic
Heisel, who is guiding the group
in their first coed production, feels
that the spirit needed to put a
show across can be found within
the sophomore class. "They have
been rehearsing three times a week
for the past four weeks," he said.
The sophomore class is produc-
ing the Broadway show "Good
News," which will have its open-
ing tomorrow night in the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre of the
League. According to Heisel, the
songs are the finest and some of
them are becoming popular hit
tunes again. He cited as an ex-
ample, "The Best Things in Life
1 Are Free."
Student Experience Varies
The leads in Soph Show have
had varied amounts of drama ex-
perience. In high school, Kenn
Buberich appeared in "Our Town."
and "Great Expectations". He per-
formed in the Detroit Melody Cir-
cus summer stock theater's pro-
duction of "Call Me Madam",
"High Button Shoes," and "Kis-
met". During his freshman year

at Wayne University, he was a
member of the Men's Glee Club.
Larry Gusman who aptly plays
Pooch in the "Good News" pro-
duction, has studied drama and
also appeared in "Little Theatre"
at the Cleveland Playhouse, also
appearing on TV. He has been an
announcer on the University ra-
dio network.
Jim Dinedo plays the part of
Beef, the football hero. He was a
lead in three major high school
plays and has appeared on local
TV programs.

ances of "Our Hearts Were Young

Both agree that there is in-

Plans Being Formulated
Plans are now being made to
send next year's show on the road,
according to the chairmen.
Alumni from various cities are
being invited to "Brigadoon' so
that they can work with the
show's administration, to formu-
late plans for bringing the next
production to their own areas.
It is possible that a MUSKET
show may be presented a hemis-
phere away from Ann Arbor! An
invitation that Miss Schwarz con-
siders "a great honor for us," was
extended recently to MUSKET. It
was invited to tour American army
bases in the Far East. This offer is
still being considered, she said.

In Decorating
Bareness and starkness greet
the University coed when she en.
ters her dormitory room, but al-
most at once plans are being for-
imulated for its decoration.
However, the majority of the
women make mistakes when they
attempt this 'remodeling. Of all
the mistakes, nine are most com-
First is lack of co-ordination.
Getting a red bedspread for a
room with bright yellow walls is
definitely an error of bad judg-
ment. Selection of items individ-
ually, without taking the end pro-
duct into consideration can result
in an interior worse than it ori-
ginally was. A choice of colors by
personality whims is not effective
for the true comfort and beauty of
the room.
Many women change their
minds in the middle of the plan.
This is usually the most prom-
inent mistake. Coeds should be
sure of their ideas before starting
Lastly, lack of confidence in
their own taste. Ideas can never
be said to be bad or good until
they are tested, and the decora-
tion of a dormitory bedroom is a
good place in which to begin.
An amateur decorator can have
some very original plans. These
plans with careful preparation can
have good results. The first step
before planning the decoration of
a room should be to remember the
nine common mistakes listed
A happy atmosphere in which
to live and work can be developed
through careful planning, careful
planning based, on the avoidance
of mistakes which decorators oft-
en make.

First Little Story
Once upon a time when the inventors of the airplane
were very small boys, the roof on their house developed
a terrible leak. A repairman was called to fix it. He set
his ladder against the side of the house, but it was a
very tall house and his ladder was not quite long enough
to reach the roof.
"Sir, we have an idea," said the boys who even at that
tender age were resourceful little chaps. "We will get
up on top of the ladder and boost you up on the roof."
So the boys climbed to the top of the ladder, and the
repairman came after them, and they tried to boost him
up on the roof. But, alas, the plan did not work and they
all came tumbling down in a heap.

Second Little Story
Once upon a time a German exchange student came
from Old Heidelberg to an American university. One
night there was a bull session going on in the room next
to his. "Ach, excuse me," he said timidly td the group of
young men assembled there, "aber what is that heavenly
smell I smell?"
"Why, that is the fragrant aroma of our Philip Morris
cigarettes," said one of the men.
"Himmel, such natural tobacco goodness !"
"It comes in regular size in the handy Snap-Open pack,
or in long size in the new crushproof box.... Won't you
try one?"
"Dankeschon," said the German exchange student
happily, and from that night forward, whenever the men
lit up Philip Morris Cigarettes, he never failed to be
MORAL: Where there's smoke, there's Meyer.
Third Little Story
Once upon a time Penelope, the wife of Ulysses, had
herself a mess of trouble in Ithaca. With her husband
away at the Trojan War, all the local blades were wooing
Penelope like crazy. She stalled them by saying she
wouldn't make her choice until she finished weaving a
rug. Each night when her suitors had gone home, Penel-
ope, that sly minx, would unravel all the weaving she
had done during the day.
Wel1 sir, one night she left her rug lying outside. It
rained buckets, and the rug got all matted and shrunken,
and Penelope couldn't unwind it. When the suitors came
hack in the morning, the poor frantic woman started
running all over the house looking for a place to hide.
Well sir, it happened that Sappho, the poetess, had
come over the night before to write an ode about Penel-
ope's Grecian urn. So she said, "Hey, Penelope, why
don't you hide in this urn? I think it's big enough if you'll
kind of squinch down."
So Penelope hopped in the urn, and it concealed her
