The play has a largo caste, requiring
fourteen men and three women, and

the play and picked Out a few . espe
cially strong part's for the try-outs.

An assessment of "two dollars per
member was levied by the clastf for
the Senior play. It is desired by tho
committee that this money be re;
celved as soon as possible. The man
agement announces that tho best
tickets will bo given to those who pay
up at once.
The reports of tho party and pin
committees were received by the
class. Tho sample of the pin will ar
rive In a few days -and orders will
then be taken for the first shipment.

As illustrating tho Importance of
this subject she spoke of tho second'

which was callod to consider this sub
ject. Many prominent architects, who
mako a specialty of school construc

ing. It was agreed that school

ment of preventive medicine.
Dr. Phi)brlck spoko especially of
the Importance of environment in
school hygiene. One very essential
thing in this connection is that Uio
school b6ard bo composed of men
olected because of their knowledge of
school conditions and their abftlty Jn
school matters. It is a 'deplorable
fact that in many cities the, school
boards are chosen, ontirely.fo political
reasons-and noffor efficiency; '-THe
Chicago board is a notable instance'
"of ""tho prostitution '6felly cation to
political 'onds. , , v . -
It is" Very important that export
architects bo employed iW, tho design
ing' of sphbol buildings." High' grdiin,
with plenty of light and plenty', of
room for playgroundsT shoufdT be
chosen f6r the location of schools:
The arrangement of schools in Lin
coln is inost faulty; especially the high
school wh'ich is a notable example of
what is worst in school design. The
lights should bo from the rear;; there,
should" bo a syBem of ventilation
which will not mako It-necessary to
open the windows, and the -stairs
should be constructed .'to mke theia
as easy as. 'possible. Two very fm
pdrtarit tilings are to have seatsj

cannot do this as well as women from
the very nature of things. 1 1
' Dr. Philbrlck also advocated the
maintenance of medical Inspectors by.
tho city. Sho 'declared that the sys
