o’clock Opera company February
The Nine o’clock company is a
group of American singing-actors
whose first transcontinental tour
of 75 appearances last season
created a sensation in the concert
Modern Version
The opera is presented in mod
ern dress and has done more to
popularize opera in America than
anything in years, according to
opera critics.
The performance is sung by
the contemporary English libret
tist and critic, Edward Dent. By
►substituting a narrator in the
mnanner of “Our Town” for the
usual operatic sets, the Figaro
troupe can “travel light” and
bring this famous masterpiece to

Infirmary Dry
Kin da Sad
Though the infirmary is warm
and dry—comfortable -it isn't a
very pleasant place to spend the
first few days at the beginning
of the term. What with the army
machine closing in and assign
ments piling up, it offers a very
damp and gloomy outlook to oc
cupants. Such is the position of
^ill Farrell and Charles Ma, who
have the doubtful distinction of
toeing among the first winter term
Sharing the aforesaid honors
is Si Sidesinger who was dis
missed Tuesday.
For those who have not al
ready had their picture taken, it
is too late for them to be in the
1942-43 book unless these stu

nell-Ellis last year, Sullivan an
nounced Tuesday.

the second coloring; of living; or

Wooden Guns ’ Arrive
For Military Trainees
A shipment of 475 new “victory trainer rifles” was received
by the military department during Christmas vacation. The
new guns, although containing a greater proportion of wood
and unable to fire, are basically the same as those used in pre
vious years.
COL. C. L. SAMPSON . . .
. . . receives ‘wooden guns’ to ho
used in teaching manual of arms
to students in ItOTC classes.
No Wooden Nickels
Our pennies should he put, to
ease the situation,
In circulation.
All 1 have to do, in order to dis
patch ’em,
Is to match ’em.
Because the old rifles were
taken over by the army earlier
this year the department has
been unable to give any instruc
tion in rifle work. The new rifles
will enable instructors to teach
the manual of arms as they have
in other years.
There are sufficient guns to
enable every man to be armed at
all drills. The new “victory train
ers” will be issued for the first
time tomorrow at McArthur
court during freshman ROTC

cent in comparison with last win
ter term when 2653 students reg

mum fee of ?5 is reached.

tal and can be transferred to hos
pitals in their home towns dur
ing the summer vacation.

cause of the war. In previous
yeai's the need or demand for
such a course has never been so
All girls interested are asked
