October 1, 1942 Little Theatre Prepares Show By Bayard Hancock Rehearsals are already under way for the first of two productions to be presented by the Little Theater _ this semester. The play, The Male Animal, co-authored bv James Thurber and James Nugent, will be presented the weekend of the C. C. N. Y. football game, October 28-29. The first per t formance will be for the college stu dents and the second for the towns people. Recently popular on Broadway, the play portrays the trials and tribu lations of a college professor. Boyle Directs Show Directed by Walden Boyle, Eng­ lish professor and little theater director, the production will feature Scotty Keith, senior, in the masculine lead as Tommy. Scotty played in sev­ eral of last year’s majors and did some directing at the summer session this past summer. Carol Taylor, sopho­ more, has been selected to play oppo­ site Scotty in the feminine lead. Al­ though this will be her first major production, she has participated in several of the studio ‘One Acts’. The two leads will be supported by Miss Margaret Dean, Miss Edith Odell, Eugene Carpenter, Duncan McCoy, W. Tornow, Miss Hannah Diegle, Howard Buckley and Loyd Jonnes. An intricate, fast developing plot and clever dialogue, plus a particularly funny drunk scene give the play ex­ cellent possibilities. Musical Organizations Arrange Annual Schedule Plans for the coming year of activi­ ty on the part of the Schola Cantor- um have not yet been completed, but a number of interesting and locally im­ portant events have already been set.

An enthusiastic crowd, under the chaperonage of Miss Marcia Winn and Dr. Clarence Klapper, gathered at eight o’clock in Miller House for the brisk hike out to the Lewis domain where HOC prexy George Beckett had laid a big fire in the outdoor fire­ place. Immediate toasting and con­ sumption of marshmallows began. A search was made for a song leader with Duncan McCoy finally serving in that capacity. Under his leadership, a large group of students serenaded the Lewis family from the front lawn. WSOC President Barbara Hequem- bourg estimates that the 450 marsh­ mallows on hand were completely an­ nihilated by a crowd of at least 250. Incidentally, the marshmallows came from Phelps when there were none to be had in Geneva. At about 10:15 the crowd began to drift back to town. All were agreed that the evening had served admirably as a mixer. The Outing Club will meet in Coxe Hall tonight for the purpose of electing officers for the coming year and dis­ cussing projects that might be under­ taken during the present club season.

Terms 'Mallow Roast' Solid Affair Scorns Practices of Hill Inmates Who Interrupt Colleagues in 'Amorous Expulsions of Devotion’ ----------------- By VIC MAITLAND* The freshman marshmallow roast which was taken over, operated, con­ trolled and attended by upper-classmen proved to be a Choice affair. The only complaint voiced by the boisterops c^owd was the long walk out to the Lewis plantation and the chilled voyage home. However, the gripe is as bad as the picnic lover who yipped over finding ants in the lunch. The show\ never-the-less was chalked up as a. huge success and flie suggestion for a return engagement strikes this reporter, as-a solid idea. About 250 students gathered to chaw 450 marshmallows as Dune .McCoy led the crowd in singing. Miss Winn and D r. Klapper acted as chaperons while Barbara Hequembourg and George Beckett took over the job of organizing the affair as Willy Smith and Hobart outing club prexys, respectively. / H 4 - Bruce Bertsch almost went into a belch when he tooled into the Union last Monday about 3:30 P.K. accompanied by choice bit Lois Mart, The two were bombarded with a barrage o f “Hey, Lois, when’s George cornin’ to town?” All’s fun however, but George Walsh (the N . Y. PXJGuilist) and no. 1 fan in the Hart album does return to the home grounds this week-end for his last stay before helping Uncle Sam fly his new war hirda. The “Bronx Cheer” may be remembered as ‘Yummy’ the Indian — the lad who had all but a one-inch atrip of hair shaved from his pate just for the glory o f fifteen bucks. H -- Add Lillias MacGregor — kid sister of pretty sophomore Mac — to your neat gal list. Residing at Comstock — the home of the brave and land W HO DARE —the Miss is one darn nice apple.

All occupants are alive, well and sober! -H- Doris Ward good looking Hill junior has returned her fraternity pin to Senator Widebottam of New York. News of the RETURN ENGAGEMENT was delivered at a press conference just before the Senator sailed for Notre Dame where he will make entangling alli­ ances with Frank Knox on how to make the Navy a more enticing institution. Said the Senator, and we qnote — “ I feel my present war duties will require all of my spare time. Besides, I can’t be tied down with outside socialtivities during these National crisea.” Unquote. Jes’ ’tween you n’ me, however, I’ll betcha’ two ta’ one — t’was the Navy that got dumped by the HILL cruiser rather than vice versa as originally foretold. Anyway, Doris’s duties as understudy to Kath­ erine Cornell leaves little time for extra curricular activities! H --------- Miller House cuties have developed a new indoor sport called gotcha covered! The flames drape around a favorite curtain about eleven P.X. and try t o catch their colleagues in the midst of amorous expulsions of devotion — in short — NECKING! Poor Bill Mack became so conscious of the third parties that he now heralds his approach and invites the viewers to view his eloquent admiration over his damsal in joining. Whatcha’ doin’ gals — training for Guerilla Warfare? Bud ( Indian ) Harter— the Miller house 10 second man — reports great difficulties under the observing peepers play. Solution: Either get more trees or obtain blackout curtains from your local 5 and 10 cent store. H — Congratulations t o Bud Lish who was just put in the distinctive, selective service group five-F. Bud now comes after wimmin’ and small children! Said Lish — “ Hell, they don’t even want me if the country’s invaded.” Housemaid’s knee was the cause of Bud’s re­ jection . . . T ’ was heard J.

Dave Davis acted as prosecuting-at- torney; and questions regarding Holly’s marital viewpoints were considered. Said Henry : “Veil I could not say hexactly, but personally I am saying to you — I ’ tink the hill gals stink!” Abashed and startled by that astonishing remark, D. A . Davis immediately set to work to correct the Walts’s viewpoint. Much debate ensued and Henry finally reaffirmed his conclusion — “ They Still Stink!\ ____ GOTCHA, Vic ___________________________________RULED FORMS - PROGRAMS ------------------------------------------------------------------- BOOKKEEPING SUPPLIES - INVITATIONS HUMPHREY PRESS INC.
