Mrs. Rockenbach, Wayne Dornach, and Joyce Sonnenberg help themselves to refreshments
at the swimming-gym party.
Swimming—ah yes—that was

students indulged in on Friday,
April 25. Everyone dived into the
cool pool and enjoyed an evening
of frolicking in the water.
What have we over here in this
corner of the gym? One club—
two spades—pass—pass! Ah—
the card sharks are at it again with
a few rounds of bridge. Time out
for a cup of coffee and a piece of
My attention was soon attracted to a strenuous invigorating
game being played on the gym
floor. The athletic types are batting the ball over the net in a wild
game of volleyball.
Swish swish! There goes the
birdie sailing through the air. Ah
yes—a badminton doubles is in
ptogress. Tryirjg to watch the
birdie will give me a stiff neck so

FOR 8:15 TONIGHT
Lady Isabel Vane, one of the
most persecuted heroines in all dramatic history, will make her appearance at Central building,
Thursday evening, May 8, at
15. This role has been made
famous in repertory and stock
companiies by such actresses as
Clara Morris, Marjorie Rambeau
and Laurette Taylor. Playing
with Aline Jennings, the Rajester
Isabel, will be James Williams as
the hero and Johnmiles Johnson as
the dastardly villain. Several humorous scenes occur in the old
melodrama, but it ends on a note
of sweet and beautiful sadness.
The publicity committee for
East Lynne is as follows: Robert
Bahr, chairman; Joseph Daly,
Robert Weiberg, Loren Marquardt,
and Harry Drosos.
The poster committee is headed by Ralph Books, who is being
assisted by Frankie Markell, Gloria
Obst, and Robert W. Kruger.
The photographer for the Ra-
jesters is James Schneider.
The scene designer is Rolland
Peterson, who will paint some
elaborate Victorian settings for the
production. Mr. Peterson's oil
paintings were much admired when
they were on display at Holland's
Food Shop some weeks ago.
Picnic To Be
The joint Phi-Theta Gamma-Rho picnic is going to be held

ice cream will be served for a nominal fee per person. Incidentally,
