Competition is Thursday
in Women’s Building
Varsity and Frosh Aquatic
Stars Will Compete
The first swimming meet of the
season will be held Thursday even
ing, instead of Wednesday, as
previously announced, at 7:30 in
the tank at the Woman's building.
This meet, according to “Rudy”
Fahl, varsity swimming mentor, will
determine what candidates will
make the team and will also show
the present ability of the men in
Distances of Swims Reduced
As the varsity and freshmen
swimmers are not in the best of
condition, the distances of the
events have been reduced. Don
Park, who has been in charge of
the yearling aquatic stars, has
been working his proteges over
time in order that they will be able
to carry off the meet. Fahl isn’t
saying much before the fray, but
is confident that the freshmen will
receive a noat drubbing. By the
way that the varsity swimmers
have been getting down to business
and training, there may be such a
thing as several records lowered.
Seven Events Listed
Seven events have been put on
the program, consisting of the 40
yard dash, backstroke, 80-yard
dash, diving (4 required and 3 op
tional), 200-yard dash, plunge for

finish, while “ltudy” Fahl will act

Popular Farce to be Given
by Senior Company
The senior company will present
Sheridan’s “School for Scandal,”
at Guild hall, February 21, 22 and
23. “School for Scandal” is con
sidered an “all-star” play, and the
cast includes many well known cam
pus stars.
The play deals with eighteenth
century life, and it to be presented
as a classical comedy. It is a bril
liant farce which has never lost its
popularity. A satire of the foibles
and follies of that society, its wit
is sparkling and its appeal so uni
versal that it is always enthusiasti
cally received. It had a very suc
cessful run in New York last year,
with such stars as Walter Hampden
and John Drew in the cast.
“A departure from the usual pro
duction will be made,” said Mr.
Reddie, head of the dramatic de
partment, who is directing the play,
“in that modern realism will be
done away with.” Simple back
drops will be used in place of
elaborate stage settings, and the
stage technique will be formal. In
teresting period costumes will be
Prominent roles will be taken by
Elizabeth Robinson, Kate Pinneo,
Wenona Dyer, Betty Belle Wise,
Bernard McPhillips, Darrell Larsen,
Dave Swanson and Virgil Mulkey.
They will be supported by a large
cast made up of both junior and
senior company members.

Score of 21 to 16
In the first chiss basketball of
the season, played last night, the
sophomores, team 1, beat the
juniors, team 2, with a score of

to working together.
Mildred Onslow, a sophomore,
showed up especially well with
excellent basket shooting. The
juniors were a little slower and
were heavily guarded.
