AFTER MANY HOURS OF REHEARSAL AND WORK, LAST YEAR'S SOPHOMORE CLASS PRE-
SENTED 'GOOD NEWS'. THE CLASS OF '59 PLANS TO STAGE 'GIRL CRAZY' LATE IN THE

in 1956-57. It was born out of'
the feeling that since the Junior
class annually presented a play,
Sophomores should give a Cabpr-
et, type of entertainment often
found in French taverns.
Soon a traditional sophomore
production, Cabaret, took over the
second floor of the Michigan
League providing dancing, card
games, special booths and refresh-
ments plus a floorshow twice each
night.
The night club atmosphere was
modified in 1954 with the intro-
duction of Soph Scandals. But,
central committee members for
1955-56 Soph Scandals were not
satisfied with an all-woman show.
They met with men's organiza-
tions, and developed an original
coed show.
For the first time last Novem-
ber,-.men and women sophomores
presented a coed musical, "Good
News." General Chairman for this

year, Adrienne Richards, '60, and
Lawrence Velvel, '60, and their
central committee have chosen
'Girl Crazy" as this year's play.
Mass meeting will be Tuesday,
Sept. 24.
.Jtunior Girls Play . .
Exactly 53 years ago last March,
half a dozen junior coeds pre-
sented a playlet of take-offs on
prominent members of the senior
class, for senior women. The char-
acter of JGP remained just an
evening of amateur entertainment
until 1912 when a second perform-
ance was given for the rest of
the women on campus.
During these eight years, the
show had drifted toward musical
comedy. In 1915 cast members
were permitted to dress in men's
clothed for the first time. It was
not until 1923, however, that men
were allowed to attend any cam-
pus performance of JGP.
