Men taking military work will be
permitted to take chorus next Bemes
ter b an innovation just Introduced
.by Mrs. Raymond. ThiB is to be a
special rehearsal at 7 o'clock each
Monday eenlng for all those who
can not be present at the Monday and
Wednesday 5:00 o'clock rehearsals.
However, this will not excuse those
taking it from the Friday afternoon
chorus practice or special programs
which still count as absences.
There will still be a limited num
ber of men who may substitute the
Monday and Wednesday chorus for
drill on those days, but formerly this
number was too small to mean that
any reasonable number of men could
enjoy the privilege of instruction un
der Mrs. Raymond. The new rehear
sal on Monday night will remedy this
and will probably Induce a largo num
ber of men to register for this tvork
the coming semester.
Those desiring to' register for this
instruction, which allows one hour uni
versity credit, should consult Mrs.
Raymond from 4 to 5 o'clock on Mon
day, Wednesday or Friday of next
