Senior Women Hold LITTLE TO SPEAK
Annual Breakfast SUNDAY MORNING!O gN?,0 XET9
Anti Present Play~imme-m i Tfl flFTIIflhI mn nPAI~IrnII


More than 190 senior women met
in cap and gown to inaugurate to
commencement activities at the an-
nual senior breakfast and play held
yesterday at the Union. Decorations
of pink and white peonies, marigolds,
palms and ferns gave an air of dig-
nity to the tables which were lighted
with tall white tapers.
The important tradition surrounding
the senior breakfast was that of blow-
ing out the tapers signifying that the
person doing this had been married
during her college course, and the par-
taking of the lemon, indicating an en-
gagement during the four years in
school. Those who blew out the can-
dle were Margaret Sandburg How-
bridge, Fern Townsend Crosby, Thel-
ma Ellis Bell, Myra Finsterwald Drie-
fus, and'Margaret Poor Fountain.
Many Are Engaged
Among those who ate the slices of
lemon which were placed at conveni-
ent intervals along the tables were:
Alice Worden, Helen Bradley, Kather-
ine Johnson, Ida May Kamp, Mabel
Jones, Geraldin Aubrey, Genevieve
Buell, Catherine Oakley, Martha
Chamberlaine, Dorothy Spencer, Es-
ther Bradley, Phyllis Gulick, Margaret
Nichols, Elizabeth Hastings, Mary Ann

Play Presented
Following the solemn ceremony of
the breakfast which was under the di-
rection of Virginia Kersey, the annual
senior play was given. This year's.
entertainment was a one-act play by
Herman Suderman entitled "The Far
Away Princess," directed by Minna
Miller and embodying in a fanciful
manner a delicate and rather pathetic
theme. The fenior women in inter-
preting this play showed unusual sym-
pathy with the author in grasping the
salient points in the interpretation of)
a young man's idealism. The work of
Ruth McCann as the Princess was es-
pecially commendable..
The committee in charge of the play
was headed by Ruth Hirschman and
included: Alice Callender, costumes;
Mary Allshouse, properties; and Eliza-
beth Knapp, staging.
The guests of honor at the breakfast
and play were: Mrs. Allan S. Whitney,
Mrs. Henry M. Bates, Mrs. Emil Lorch,
Miss Beatrice Johnson, Miss Alice
Lloyd, Miss Grace Richards, Mrs. Nor-
ma Bicknell Mansfield and Mrs. H. F.
Worley of Washington, D. C.
Palmer Christian, University organ-
ist, will present an organ recital, one
of a series which he has been giving
throughout the year, at 4:15 o'clock
Sunday afternoon in Hill auditorium.
The general public, with te exception
of small children, is invited to attend.
