He re marked that in the past, many houses have been reluctant to try out for the show because of the financial burden creat ed by the skit production. Knoll added that the $100 incentive should improve the quality of tie show by adding a little more color. The theme for this year's KK show, November 23, will be "Komic Kapers." Knoll commented that this theme provides a wider topic range than themes of previous years in that "almost any thing humorous would be ac ceptable." Each house wishing to participate in tryouts for the fall production must select a skitmaster. A skitmaster meeting will be held Tuesday evening at 7:00 in 334 Student Union.

"I am not urging a student to drop a course just to make room for somebody else," Chatfield said, "but if the student is going to drop, I wish he would do it promptly, no later than the end of the second week of school." He explained that the new drop rule permits students to drop a course without penalty if they act before the end of the fourth week. The fourth week, however, is too late to permit reassignment of vacated class space to some body else. "We have a number of in stances," Chatfield said, "in which students are waiting for vacancies in class sec tions so they can register for a particular course they want to take. "The point is, if you are going to drop a course, do it now," he said. "Don't wait until the last minute.
