the identifying mark of University

In the "'good old" days, before
the time of Ivy League slouch hats,
it was unheard of not to wear a

Weatherford, president of Mas

should be easier this year than
ever before. "We have planned
perhaps the most popular season
we have ever had," he said.
University Theatre will produce
"What Every Woman Knows,"
"Ondine," "The Teahouse of the
August Moon, The Lark," and
"The Old Maid and the Thief," an
opera. Weatheriord noiea that
three of these shows were top suc

He also stated that the bargain
price of season tickets should
make the selling job easy. "The
cost of individual tickets will be
$1.50. But by buying a season tick

for five dollars a saving of $2.5(1.
More than that, if a group buys
ten or more tickets, they get them
for Jour dollars apiece."
