Shower baths will be installed for

Regular military discipline will bo

JUNIOR PLAY TICKETS
GOING VERY SLOWLY
Business Manager Northrup States
Plainly That the Junior Class
. Must Get Busy.
Owing to tho fact that tho Junior
Play is forced to enter Into competi
tion with OtiB Skinner, Eva Tanguay,
and tho formal season; "Thor-Man
From Homo" promises to bo a finan
cial failure unless the Junior class
comes forward to back the. thing with
tho support they owe it. Tho play
that bids fair to bo ono of the greatest
artlBtic successes of years Is 'walking
straight into financial failuro because
tho student body as a whole, as well
as tho Junior class, who ought to be
uajjcuiuiiy iitiuruateu, are giving tnoir
support u proftaHluiml cumpanluB
rather than to their own University
"Tho Man From Home" is an ex
ceptional play, the cast is, as every
one knows, composed of somo of tho
best talent in tho University. Only
ono man in a secondary part had to be
dropped from tho cast after tho play
was udder rohoarsal, and no effort has
beon spared to give the play an ade
quate setting: JrctT-ln Bplto-of-all"
this, the lethargy onthe part of tho
student body in supporting this per-
-formanco has been appalling. Up to
last night scarcely a hundred dollars
worth of tickets had been sold.
Ralph Northrup, tho business mana
ger, says: "I want to put this mat
ter fairly and squarely before tho
Junior class, and I want them to real
ize that it is not upon tho cctBtilr the
play committee, or tho business mana
ger that tho success of this play do-
penas, out upon tho members of tho
clasB themselves. -I -want them
