Princess Ida is the story of a girl
who at the age of two is betrothed
to young, determined Prince Hil-1
The betrothal is the plan of the
two fathers, King Gama and King;
Hildebrandt. Gama, the homely,'
sarcastic, and cunning king, will
be played by Robert Denison, '59M.
lildebrandt, the jovial, pompous,
and stupid father, will be portray-
ed by David Newman, '58.
Since her early betrothal, Ida
has turned against all men and
locked herself in Castle Adamant.
Here the girls learn the villiany
of men and few of the pupils are
given the opportunity to observe
these henious cretures. Hilarion,
determined to capture his bride,
connives with two of his friends
to disquise themselves as girls in
order to capture Ida. Cyril, the
youngest, and overly exuberent
of the two, will be played by John

a man. The innocent girl becomes
extremely curious about Florian's
"chin that scratches."
Ida's brothers, Arac, Guron, and
Scynthius, come to aid her in her
war with Hilarion. However, these
"all brawn but no brain" charac-
ters actually give her little aid.
Guron and Scynthius will be play-
ed by Tom Sexworth, Spec. BAd,
and John Vavroch, 159M, respec-
Warfare begins when Psyche,
Florian's sister, played by Sarah
Jane Weston, '57M, discovers the
disguised men and is made to con-
fess to Ida. Ada, Sacharissa, and
Chloe, all young, eager and inno-
cent, have to learn to take up arms
and fight against those horrible
creatures, men. The three students
will be played by Cynthia Conway,
'59M, Rosalind Farris, '60, and
Ann Olson, '58.

Only Dietzgen Slide Rules
have these great features
Professional engineers say Dietzgen's new slide
rules embody the greatest advances in design in
more than a quarter century. Dietzgen's exclu-
sive Micromatic Adjustment permits perfect
alignment of the scales at all times. Simple re-
setting of one screw does it. The end plates need
not be loosened; fit and action of the slide is
Dietzgen's automatic slide tension insures per-
fect slide action wherever and whenever these
rules are used. Slides cannot bind or stick-nor
become loose so errors may result from acci-
dental slide movement. These are truly great
slide rules. Important new scales added. New
super-safe carrying case. See them at your Dietz-
gen dealer today.
