"Meddling with Mars," the mystery-
shrouded Junior Girls' play, was vot-
ed as good if not better than its pre-
decessors by the jury of senior girls
in whose honor it was given last night.
The plot was consistent and rife
with amusing situations; the acting in
several cases approached professional
poise; there were quantities of hits
in the dialogue, and the music was
melodious and catchy. The chorus
singing was not very strong and the
most conspicuous fault of the produc-
tion was the lack of good solo voices.

Kennetha Berry as Jerry, the hero,
who submits himself to Prof. Killjoy
Pickering's gravitation experiment in
order to win the hand of his niece,
Betty, was a strikingly handsome and
self-assured young gentleman with a
bass voice which was remarkably life-
like. Eva Herzberg as the object of
his affections was very pretty in the
distress which her lover's vagaries
caused her and was easily worth a
trip to Mars. The best acting in the
play was done by Winifred Parsons,
who took the conventional part of
the crabbed, conceited professor, and
made of it a memorable personality
rather than a type. With their men-
talities exchanged by the Martian mes-
merizer, the change in character ef-
fected by both the professor and Jerry
was exceedingly well done.
The part of Judicia, queen of Mars,
was superbly taken by Hazel Hoff-
man who has a stage presence well
adapted to the pageantry of court
scenes. Marcus, the Martian scien-
tist portrayed by Helen Davis, wash

Men in Naval Auxiliary Fare Well!
Word received from University me{
who left school a short time ago with
the naval auxiliary, state that the
entire representation from this school
is in training at Cleveland and is far-
ing well. The Michigan men are]
quartered in an armory which serves
as a temporary "ship." Upon enter-
ing their quarters they "go aboard"I
and "shore leave" is necessary when
they wish to leave. Although as yetl

ment, they are rapidly learning theI
