Ruined Sewing Machines
Given New Pastel Colors
By Mike Milroy
'Aaagghh, our sewing ma
chines are ruined !"
This remark was just one
of the many reflecting the
trials and tribulations of the
"Kosmet IQub workers, ama
teur set builders, who are
presently constructing the
necessary sets for the Kos
met Klub Spring Show, "Pa
jaua Game "
Subversive Slogans
The show, which will Tae
presentde at Pershing Audi
torium March 25 and 26. re
quires sewing machines
for the pajama factory scene.
The scene of Hernando's
Hideaway required the con
struction of flashing signs
with certain subversive slo
gans, such as "Think.""
Sewing machines were te
diously built and painted
bright pastel colors only to
have them spattered with
rusty, dirty water from the
overhead pipes being torn out
by workers in the Elgin build
ing, location of the Kosmet
Klub set building aggregation.
Another night's work had to
"be spent y a lew .of the
workers repainting the sew
ing machines. Painting, how
ever, is just, one of lb tal

of 14 workers. Engineering
students succeeded in nuCd

and Towne Club.
A new system was used
this semester in computing
the grade listings, said
J. P. Colbert, dean of stu
dent affairs. The listing
was not made according
numerical grade order but
by grade groups. The top
scholarship group includes
all groups rating a 6.000 or
above; group two includes
ratings of 5.500 to 5.999;
group three includes grade
points of 5.000 to 5.499; and
group four includes all list
ings below 4.999.
Better Picture -
Dean Colbert explained

ferent sets for tbe nhow from
all over tbe city.
Office Scene
Yet to he liuilt is the entire
office scene. This scene will
require construction of
desks, file cabinets and the
usual office equipment. Work
ers will also build the back
drop for the whole play.
Bill Baker, Kosmet Klub
technical director, is in
charge of tbe set building and
the technical points involved
in construction. He is assist
ed by Marry Sophir, Kosmet
Klub active, who is assistant
technical director.

feel such a system gives a
better picture of house
standings because there is
usually a difference of only
.5 grade point between the
top house and low house
rating in the grade group
ing. If listed numerically,
a house might be listed as
eleventh and actually be
only .3 to .4 grade points
from the top average."
He also said the depart
ment had recently made a
survey of the grade listings
for the last eight semesters
and found that the same
houses usually remained in
the top group from semes
ter to semester.
