Tennis Ball to Roll Tonight; Stars Form Dance Ceiling By PHYL PERKINS “A Tennis Ball that will hold a campus/’ is the motto chanted by members of the rally squad and social chairmen when referring to tonight’s dance which will take place from 8:30 to 11:30 on the courts behind Commerce. “It is expected that this first tennis court hop of the year will be widely attended by all stu dents; for its originality in theme and setting should be a strong at traction, plus the added novelty of dancing under the stars,” said Marilyn Rakow, chairman. While most of the campus still remains doubtful as to weather conditions tonight, members of the dance committee seem to be work ing with calm conviction that threatening clouds will roll by and skies will be perfectly clear by 8:30. A last minute survey of com mittee developments brought the following statements. “The sky’s the limit!” said Ferdy Fernandez when promising some thing new and revolutionary in decorations. “We’ll have the latest in records and the best in P. A. systems,” plugged Evans Sax. “Lights,” said Hank Kinsell, “won’t be necessary because my almanac says full moon tonight.” Even Ike Eiekenmeyer is planning the best technique in clean-up. In harmony with the informal I atmosphere, students have been in structed to appear in jeans and cottons. Tickets at 35 cents per person are on sale today by mem bers of the rally squad and social chairmen and by special salesmen in the Side. Guild Theater Stars Vogler as Idealist Liliom By JEAN LAWRENCE The third time is two times too many for Louis Vogler, sophomore in music, title role actor in “Liliom” opening to night on Guild hall stage. The play will be in production to night, Saturday night, and May 1 and 3. “This time, suppose I interview you,” he said with fiendish glee recalling interviews on Dion An thony, “The Great God Brown,” last year, and that epitome of man, Mr. Antrobus, tn “The Skin of Our Teeth,” given this fall. Mr. Vogler suggested that, since the conversa tion tended in that direction any way, we discuss “Liliom,” and hv did. “I think Liliom got his person ality through being an idealistic person who went wrong because of environment,” he explained. “He was happy as a barker for the car rousel until he fell in love with Julie. Then two forces came into conflict, his love of independence and his love for Julie. I think his love for Julie was the stronger be cause he attempts robbery only for Julie and the coming child. His pride in his own kin, in what he has created, is above everything else,” he added, giving as his ex ample the last scene of the play when “Liliom,” returning from heaven, steals a heavenly star for his daughter. Religious Groups Plot Busy Week Westminster and Wesley houses are both open tonight for student fun. At Wesley a radio quiz will begin at 9:30.

LOUIS VOGLER . . . stars in ‘Lilioni’ Services Today For Professor From Bavaria Private funeral services for Dr. Friedrich Georg Gottlob Schmidt, professor emeritus of Germanic languages and literature, will be held at 4 o’clock today at the Veatch-Hollingsworth chapel, with Rev. Frank S. Bystall in charge. Dr. Schmidt died Tuesday even ing at his home after a long ill ness.

He received his doctor’s degree from Johns Hopkins university at Baltimore, Md., in 1896. The language scholar was head of the modern language depart ment from 1897 to 1905, when he was made head of the department of Germanic languages and litera ture. He is credited with develop ing the German department into one of the most comprehensive and thorough in this section of the country. Travelling extensively, he made one trip to the Orient, and visited Europe often. Immediately after his retirement he went to Ger many, and after the outbreak of the European war he made his es cape through Italy.
