campus, walking on the seal, sit
ting on the senior bench, freshman

Realism, Fantasy
Blended in 'Liliom'
“Liliom,” Ferenc Molnar’s great
est dramatic work, reopens tonight
on -Guild hall stage after two highly
successful weekend performances.
Final performance, as now sched
^uled, will be Thursday, May 3.
A summary of the play shows
that it begins in a mood of stark
realism when Liliom, the carousel
barker, and Julie, the servant girl,
meet. It leads to the point where
Liliom, rather than go back to
work at the carousel, and faced
with the expectancy of Julie’s
child, attempts stealin gand pos
sible murder, to be caught and to
commit suicide rather than to fall
in the hands of the police.
After his death, the play be
comes sheer fantasy and takes
Liliom to a magistrate’s court in
heaven where he is sentenced to
15 years in the purging fire, after
which time he is allowed to return
-fed earth for one day to perform
just one good deed which will make
him worthy of attaining eternal
Not a ‘Fleeting’ Play
It has been said that there is
more irony and more philosophy
and true human emotion in “Lil
iom” than can be found in the fleet
ing plays of the ordinary season.
Certainly it is true that “Liliom”
has greatly increased, rather than
diminished, in popularity since it
was written in 1908.
This University theater produc
tion is under the direction of
Horace W. Robinson. Giving vivid
dramatic potrayals of char
acter are Lewis Vogler, as Liliom;
and Phyllis Kiste and Mary Lee

bloomed beauty Wednesday when
pictures of the 24 “Chin-up Boys”

the most bonds each day during
that period, will have the pleasure
of seeing their “Chin-up Boy” in
all his masculine glory, in a highly
spotlighted place in the window.
Beauty Doesn’t Count
“It isn’t the beauty, but the
number of bonds sold that will de
termine the winner of this con
test,” declared Margery Skordahl,
contest committee chairman, who
remarked that all girls who were
generous enough to loan their
cherished pictures will have the
photographs returned to them
promptly after the contest.
Under the slogan: “He’s my chin
up boy because he keeps up my
morale,” the fololwing servicemen
have been chosen by the houses:

Mud Bath Scheduled for Sophomores;
Freshman Pants to Paint Skinner 'O’
Led by Captains Floyd Fredrickson and Gil Roberts, picked
teams of freshmen and sophomores will battle to the finish in
a tug-of-war contest Saturday at 10 a.m. behind the music
school. Bob Hamilton, chairman of traditions, announced the
arrangements for the event, which is a traditional feature of
Junior Weekend.
Because of the danger of in
juries, the tug-of-war will be held
in the vacant lot north of the music
building, instead of over the mill
race as in past years. The contest
will take place over a trench, three
feet deep and six feet wide. To
quote Chairman Hamilton, “It will
be filled with mud of a liquid va
riety, and the whole field will be
sprinkled generously all day Fri
day. Contestants may wear any
thing but tuxedos.”
All freshman boys whose names
appear In the Emerald either Tues
day, Wednesday, 'or Thursday for
violations of traditions are to meet
at the Side, Thursday at 3:30 p.m.
to receive orders. These boys will
have the pleasure of digging the
trench for the tug-of-war.

assembly Thursday, May 3. He

“In order to clarify the question
of ‘whether a veteran, who is em

which employment has no bearing
on the course of education or train

from a decision on the issue here
involved, rendered by the veterans
“ ‘Subsistence allowance is neith

a monetary allowance intended to
provide a person in receipt of edu

with a measure of support during
such education or training. The full
allowance is awarded to one pur

requiring the applicant to show
