KK Talent Sought
4In Snadesw Baker
By Nancy Brown
The search for Kosmet Klub spring show talent is on
Scripts for persons interested in trying out for the KK
production of "Damn Yankees" may now oe picicea up rrom
the main desk in the Student Union.
"Past Kasmet Klub spring show productions have 'run
the gamut in variety of talent. This year's production
of "Damn Yankees" is no exception: we need talent in
spades," stated Bill Baker, director of "Damn Yankees.'
"There are approximately
45 members needed for this
cast, and the talents needed
ranee from a flaming cigar
ette trick to a masochistic
mambo," Baker added. .
Tryouts will be held Jan.
10 and 12 in the Union from
7 to 10 p.m. each night.
During tryouts the directors
will be looking for people to
portray a wide range of char
acters. Baker described the
characters as follows:
"There's Charlie Applegate,
a not too sinister Satan who
is losing his devilish touch
and needs special help from
his right-hand girl, Lola
Devil's Desire
"Lola is just what the devil
ordered. She is brash on oc
c a s i o n. ( " Whatever Lola
Wants, Lola Gets"), playful
always ("Two Lost Souls")
and frantic usually ('.'Who's
Got the Pain When They Do
the Mambo").
"She dances and sings to
Joe Hardy, the ail-American
baseball player who sings
right back to her, even though
he is r e a 1 1 y Joe Boyd, an
aging Washington Senators
fan who has made a deal witn
Joe is married and deeply
in love with his wife, Meg,
a kind and understanding mid-
die-aged woman who must
sacrifice her husband to
television set six months out
of every year.
"During the story, the a
dience meets such people as
Gloria, an energetic and at
tractive newspaper reporter;
Van Buren, the befuddled and
distressed team manager;
and Welch, the slightly incap
able club owner.
"There are also Henry
Sohovik and Rocy, three uiv
likely ball players who ar
convinced that all it takes to
win the pennant is "You've
Gotta Have Heart," and Sis
ter and Doris, two spinster
neighbors and .overly avid
baseball fans.
Mix Well'
"To these characters add
generous spicing of several
other varieties of people who
can sing or dance or douv
and you have the material for
a first class Kosmet Klub
spring show.
"Rehearsals have been
planned to make the max!
mum use ot a minimum
amount of time so everyone
can maintain their averages
and not jeopardize their so
cial activities. Experience is
not absolutely necessary; en-
thusiasm is. Your directors
are miracle workers," Baker

Christmas goes off with a
bang in Jamaica.
Jamaicans, according to
exchange student Isa Lyttle,
reserve fireworks for Christ
mas rather than the fourth
of July.
Many of the other festivi
ties, such as caroling, par
ties, gift exchanges and
Christmas trees are similar
to those found in America,
she explained, but there is
one special food that is dif
"This is a pudding which
contains fruit that has been
soaking in liquors since last
Christmas or the early part
of June. The pudding is then
steamed and served," she
Isa said she is looking for

A number of the 236 for
eign students will visit room

Pledge Projects
Constructive Activity
Subs for Usual Sneak
By Sue Hovik
Pledges of fraternities and
sororities have been making
the news with their efforts
on constructive projects.
Even though some of the
houses have given up the tra
ditional sneak to harass ac
tives, and turned to a week
end in the house to work on
constructive projects, others
have boarded buses and trav
eled as far away as Colum
bia, Mo., and Champaign, 111.
Alphia Xi Delta pledges
moved the actives out of the
house for a day and night
while they provided surprises

well as painting in the house.
Although they didn't have
a homecoming display, the
Chi Omegas didn't let the
display money to go to waste.
A mentally retarded boy of a
needy family will go to school
because of their contribution.!
The Tri Delt actives felt a
little sheepish when they had
the wool pulled over their
eyes by their pledges as they
took off on a "fake sneak"
one Friday night.
The Delta Gamma pledge
class will be hostesses for the
Ked-Tread for all pledge
classes on campus.

fortunate is the Kappa Kappa
