Out of the Chaos-Peace; Out of Rehearsals— Sing’ Out of the usual muddle and seemingly impossible collec tioa of scenes and actors. Director Horace Robinson is slowly and surely bringing the “Of Thee I Sing'' rehearsals into the home stretch. With two rehearsals remaining, last night’s practice, the tided, was fraught with the irksome worries of Larry Celsi’s soye innjiL an a mary iviens. s sniffles, with the last step of the military routine and several flat notes from the chorus. Typical of the difficulties faced the wail through the microphone of Jim Bronson, who was wearing one of Dean Earl’s suits (without podding >, ‘’Oh gosh, I can't keep these pants on!" Bright Spot Already a bright spot in the Show, the team of Helen Holden and Ray Dickson taps a mean rhythm on the as-yet-undraped stage boards. Glamor in mass production is exemplified by the various beauty and dancing cho» runes, headed by Aldine Gates with a thick-as-honey accent as the luscious Diana Devereaux. A spectacle was Director Robinson, who hopped about the stage a la Orson Welles, illustrating the best way to put punch into a cor muffin counterpoint nlum ber.

'Little Sir Echo' (Continued from page one) part he does the first singing in his long succession (about 20) of plays while at the University. Saturday night’s performance will be his last on the campus. Roll Call “You see, this scene where T sing is really the senate roll call," he added, “and it’s a swell chance for comery.” The set> for this scene is Jerry's own design. As Throttlebottom, the man who is conspicuous by his ab sence, Jerry will wear the most inexpensive costume in the show. After several days' prowling about in second hand stores, he came with a dusty old business suit, a musty hat, and a high starched collar. “I borrowed the suit and hat, so the whole cos tume cost me about a dollar, I got a pair of shoes that button for 75 cents," he smiled. Own Make-Up As usual, he will do his own make-up. attempting a full-faced effect. "You see, Throttlebottom is about GO, and a bit plump,” he explained. Superstitious, as most actors are, Jerry is suffering from an unusually acute attack of stage fright. “I don't know. I guess it's because the allow is so big. And then, there's that echo. . . ." UO Signs for Sugar (Continued from page one) By registering, students who reported they had no sugar in their possession, were given their first war ration book which is actually a card with 28 white stamps attached to it. Each one of the first four stamps entitles its owner to one pound of sugar. The office of price administra tion may later announce another amount of sugar that each stamp will permit its holder to pur chase. Dorm Students Dorm students will not have to use their rationing cards for su gar at present since the dormi tory is classed as an institution and is allowed one-half of the to tal sugar they used in May and June of last year for each of those two months this year. This year the dormitories will get 800 pounds of sugar in May and June, according to Mrs. Genevieve Tur nipseed, director of dormitories. Fraternities and sororities do not come under the classification of institutions and each individ ual living in these organizations will have to use his own stamps to secure sugar during the ra tioning period. No Proxies Persons not living in a family unit and related by blood, mar riage or adoption cannot register for each other. Registration will close at 8 o’clock Thursday evening. Any one who has failed to register by that time must wait two weeks before applying to his local ra tioning board for a ration book. Condon School Condon school will be open to day and tomorrow from 2:30 in the afternoon to 8 o’clock in the evening for people wishing to register. Two shifts of 20 people are kept busy by the continuous stream of people coming to the school to register. Approximate ly 3,500 people are expected to register at the local school be fore Thursday night. Limited Each stamp on the rationing card will be valid only during a certain time set by the govern ment and cannot be saved to use later. The stamps may be used only by or for the person named and described in the ration book and stamps must be taken from the book in the presence of the storekeeper, his employee, or the person who makes the delivery if the sugar is delivered. If a rationing book is lost, mu tilated or destroyed it should be reported immediateely to the lo cal rationing board. Registration When persons are registered they are requested to fill in their full name, address, height, weight, color of eyes, age and sex. The number of pounds of sugar hand at time of registration is considered and if this amount totals more than two pounds per person in a household stamps equal to the amount over two pounds are removed from the* card. Not Too Acute The government has announced that the shortage of sugar is not yet so acute that sugar must be entirely restricted, but the short age has become sufficient to make a control necessary on consump tion of sugar for non-war pur poses. In the past, 27 per cent of the American sugar supply has corrrtr from the Philippine islands, and 35 per cent came from the West Indies. Home grown sugar, which now makes up all America is like ly to have available, made up 38 per cent of the total sugar usual ly used here. Physics Assistants Dr. A. E.
