The favorite musical comedy theme of

exhibited by Red Cross nurses, allied
nations, and “sons of America” dom-
inated the few college hits, and cul-
minated in the semophore call to farms.

WORK ON FARM IN TWO WEEKS
Room for Twenty More During Summer
Afternoon work on the Bryn Mawr
farm will begin in about two weeks, and
will continue, for students in Bryn Mawr,

who work as much as 48 hours during
the spring, may count this time as one
week of regular work and draw wages

FRESHMEN CLEARED $250 FOR
THE SERVICE CORPS FRIDAY
Expenses Less Than For Either 1918’s
or 1919’s Freshman Shows
The Freshman entertainment netted
the Service Corps $250 last Friday. Ex-
penses were well under $100, less than for
either 1918’s or 1919’s Freshman shows,
which cost $243 and $367, respectively.
Gate receipts were clear gain, for costs
were met by class dues.
Costume expenses were $35 at most,
mainly for the flowers and Egyptian |
choruses, and for the scarlet moth. The |
Bolshevik and soldiers’ and sailors’ cos-
tumes cost nothing.
STUNT PARTY ADDS LOCAL
COLOR TO BATES
Stunts, giving a vivid portrayal of
summer life at Bates House, followed a'|
talk by Miss Virginia Deems on the prac-
tical side of the work there, at the annual
Bates Party in the gym last Saturday |
night. There was dancing to the music |
of the new Freshman Orchestra. $11
were raised by the sale of refreshments.
Miss Deems, who for two years was
the head of Bates, may direct it again
this summer. She told of many adven-
tures of the college workers at Long
Branch, especially during one fortnight
two years ago when 48 children were)
there, without their mothers; at that)
time, she said, the college girls could |
work out all their pet theories, and as a)
result one girl in one afternoon scrubbed |
In the first of the two stunts the |
elopement of Butty the Butterick Beaut|
(H. Butterfield '18) with the faithful
Claude (M. Foot '21) was enacted. ‘The|
prelude to the match furnished an op-|
portunity for the singing of “The Heart |
of the City That Has No Heart” by a)
typical Bates group of factory girls. H.|

Plans for Reorganization Will be Pre-

The War Council chairman for next
year will be nominated and elected at

Three plans for the reorganization of

THE SPRING DRIVE
In the fifteen short months between
March,- 1917, and June, 1918, the United
States must raise twenty-two billion dol-
It seems like a large sum when one
realizes that in the one hundred and forty-
one years between 1776 and 1917 the coun-
try had raised only twenty-five billion dol-
lars, out of which were paid all the
expenses of peace and war, including
municipal, state and federal expenditures,
whether for salaries, public education, na-
tional defense or general improvements.
With the realization of these figures
comes a fuller realization of what this
war must cost every American. There is
a hard pull ahead. All Americans must
help raise this money, and to do it must
leave unnecessary expenses unincurred,
unnecessary clothes unbought. It is up
to the educated American woman to make
old clothes, supplemented by Liberty
Bonds and Thrift Stamps, the fashion. ©
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
The editors do not hold themselves respon-
sible for opinions expressed in this column.
Recently I heard that the Seniors, in
an effort to be economical, have given up
the idea of having a Class Record. I
should like to congratulate the class on
their spirit of unselfishness and to sug-
gest a possible substitute for the usual
expensive Record that might recommend
itself to classes even after the war.
Couldn’t the last edition of “Tipyn
O’Bob” this semester be made entirely a
Senior issue and be sold for a little more
than the ordinary copies in order to pay
for the extra expense? Could it not con-
tain pictures of the faculty and of the
Seniors, as well as Senior records?
This plan has been satisfactorily
adopted by the West Philadelphia High
School for Girls, where an attractive com-
mencement issue is sold for twenty-five
cents a copy.
If the Seniors are interested, they could
probably get a sample copy from a gradu-
ate of the West Philadelphia High School,
or I will send them one with pleasure.

DOLLAR VARSITY LOAN TO
A varsity loan floated in shares of one
dollar to finance “The Admirable Crich-
ton” was advocated at a meeting of the
Undergraduate Association board on Mon-
day. Refunds would be made from the
gate receipts after the performances on
April 19 and 20. Plans will be submitted
to the Association at noon today.
The treasury keeps only enough money
on hand for current expenses, so that first
expenses for the royalty have had to be
lent by individuals.
More rigid election rules to prevent
stuffing the ballot are being drawn up
for the Association by a committee of
three, J. Peabody "19, G. Woodbury ‘19
and H. Wortman ‘20.

truth is, there are many useless and
frivolous women here, not really work-

regulating things far more strictly, pos
sibly with medical requirements. Dr.

There is no question that the A.R.C.
and the Y.M.C.A. are going to need,
women in greatly increasing numbers,
and their standard is steadily rising.
Women of college training would be most
welcome to certain canteen heads. . .
Kind of Women Needed
Canteen work is going to grow enor-
mously and is, I think, very valuable and
interesting work. There are canteens
for French soldiers and the A. R. C. is
also starting many for American soldiers.
Requirements there are, age, 25—40,
preferably nearer 25; husky health—used
to “roughing it,” to standing on your
feet; adaptability, willingness to be
bossed, circumspection, good disposi-
tion, should speak French a little, know
how to put on bandages (First Aid
Course) ; social gifts also weleome if not
absolutely insisted on (I think they are).
The able people here soon rise to the
top, or should, gnd will be put in charge
of new canteens as they are opened.
There is no cooking required—8s hour
shifts—night work. Strict rules for
social life (i. e., about dining with offi-
Enormous demand for first rate bureau
workers. Stenographers and typewriters
are snapped up on every side, and good
executive secretaries are more precious
than rubies.. Any bureau of the A. R..C.
(I speak at random but I know at least
three) would absorb as many as available
—i e., women with knowledge of filing,
library education, record keeping, etc.,
as well as stenography and typewriting
and general trained intelligence.
The Refugee and Child Welfare Tu-
berculosis Departments are using social
service workers and of course nurses and
doctors. No doubt graduates of Miss
Kingsbury’s would be welcome. The Child
Welfare Tuberculosis and Housing cam-
paign will probably be extended greatly
very soon, and more workers demanded.
Very interesting for social workers and
Chauffeuses are always needed.
Dietitians will be needed.
Nurses’ auxiliaries should register.
There aren’t enough nurses here for
EXTRA HOUSE RENTED | BY CENTER
Take Over Old Red Cross Building
The old Red Cross headquarters on the
Lancaster pike have been rented by the
Community. Center and is to be used as,
a meeting place for the Girl Scouts and |
the women’s and girls’ clubs. Miss|
Smith will have an office in the building.
The library is to be moved there and a
librarian will be in charge every after-
Volunteers are asked for next Friday |
and Saturday to help arrange the new.
rooms, and anyone having chairs, rugs, |
pictures, etc., to give, are asked to com-
municate with Miss Smith.
One of the primary rooms in the school
building has been given to the Center
for the use of the kindergarten and the
ability to run a car, resourcefulness,
energy, tact, practically necessary, and
medical or nurse’s training, carpentry,
etc., all to the good. I understand Miss
Anne Morgan wants college graduates |
-| for her most successful work at Bléran-
court. She has done more than anyone
in actual rebuilding and has co-operated |
with the French and got general respect.
The Smith Unit has been most success-
ful also; is now coming under the A, R.
C. like everything else. The Friends
have done splendid work. Living con-
ditions, etc., are very Spartan with them.
Send only the strongest, and nobody with
a tendency to flirtation, as they are sus-
picious of women.
Women Must be “Thoroughbreds”
The Y. M. C. A. wants “women of re-
source and magnetism.” “Popular leader
quality.” There are, or they say so,
many second rate men; that is all the
more important for women to be “thor-
oughbreds.”. They will be put in situa-
tions where no conventional laws hold
and must know how to control them. The
fairly young—25-30—will probably be
most successful with the privates and
the more attractive and good looking the
better; the more social experience the
better, provided they are serious and
steady. None of those with husbands
in the army are acceptable. Married
welcome otherwise, There are no two
opinions in the rank and file of the
army as to the enormous good these
women can do. The young officers and
privates will tell you that the whole tone
of a camp is changed by their presence
(this is also true of A. R. C. canteens),
and the “huts” are popular just in pro-
portion as women are there. They need
a lot at , where there will be a
very large number of men (privates) on
leave every week—girls who can walk
and dance and help “entertain” and
In the Y. M. C, A, the capable and ex-
ceptional person will undoubtedly rise to
the top. It is less certain in the A. R.
C., and some heart burning might re-
sult for canteen workers. Knowledge of
French (conversation) essential for A.
R. C. workers; liking for the average
American essential for the Y. M. C. A.
Elizabeth White is now working for
the Y. M. C. A. (answering soldiers’ let-
ters, and buying what they ask for, from
violin strings to pajamas). Variety is
not lacking in jobs; but practically all
relief and reconstruction will be under
A. R. C., and the Y. M. C, A. is the other

SCARLET MOTH APPEARS AS FRESH-
MEN’S FAIRY GODMOTHER
_ (Continued from page 1)
The proud sisters were turned to
account as the even classes in dark and
light blue. The maltreated but trium-
phant heroine was 1921, and the prince
1919. The fairy godmother fluttered on
the stage in Act IIT as the class animal,
a delicate scarlet moth. It was only by
intervention of a fairy godmother that
the Freshman Cinderella could surmount
Bryn Mawr tradition and go to the
Garden Party where she met her prince
The bombing squad of Bolsheviki, true
to type, cheered on their leader, Gen-
eral Ostroff of Odessa, only to knife
him after his final flourish. A frenzy
of applause from the audience recalled
him to life. Miss Ostroff is a native of
Russia, born in the Ukraine near Odessa.
Her spirited execution of the Kazatchka,
a Russian peasant dance, was far above
the level of usual Bryn Mawr stage
Most diverting of the other more con-
ventional choruses was the pajama
girls. The aviation chorus, effective as
its original in “Going Up,” cannot be
blamed for carrying off the charming
Cinderella. Miss Southall supplemented
a good voice with graceful acting and
dancing. Of the two sisters, Miss Foot,
as the self-important senior, was the
better actress. Miss Farnsworth was
obliged to take the part of 1920 at very
Confusion of color and idea marred the
Garden Party in Act III, which was not
redeemed by the loveliness of the flowers
in the opening scene. The Egyptian
chorus was dragged in with the un-
fortunate effect of clashing with the
subsequent war scene as badly as
did Cinderella’s cerise dress with the
scarlet wings of the moth. The mute
hero prolonged into a burlesque his kiss
1921’s orchestra from “Sunny Italee,”
complete with a lively monkey, was first
brought in by an usher in response to a
frantic appeal from before the curtain,
recalling Parade Night with its cry of
“The band has not come. Everything is
E. Taylor's appointment as business
manager of the varsity play is a tribute
to her success with this production.
Mise wiain ‘Speake at Areas
evening with the atory of the Spring
Street Church and Settlement, ‘from
which parties are sent down in the
summer to Bates House, told at Vespers
by Miss Anne Wiggin, head worker at
Miss. Wiggin told how eighteen years
ago Roswell Bates, then but a few years
out of the. seminary, had accepted the
call to Spring Street after its own pastor
had given it up as hopeless. Mr. Bates
literally wore himself out in making it
the vigorous and self-supporting church
that it now is.
“Before Mr. Bates’ denis ” said Miss
Wiggin, “he spoke to the students of
many colleges about his work, but no-
where did he meet with as heartfelt and
sympathetic a response as at Bryn
Miss Wiggin declared that the most
important task that the women of Amer-
ica have before them is to raise the
ideals of the nation so high that when
the men return they will not be drawn
into the same rut that existed before the
war. “This task’, she added, “you are
helping accomplish by your work at
Bates House during the summer.”
Summer Workers Needed at Spring
According to Miss Wiggin there is a
scarcity of workers at Spring Street.
She would be very glad to see any stu-
dents interested in doing settlement work
who are going to be in New York this
summer. F. Clarke ’19 would be glad to
communicate with Miss Wiggin for appli-
FELLOWSHIP DINNER PROGRESSES
Senior Fellowship dinner, first given
in Pembroke, moved several years ago
to Rockefeller, and this year progresses
to Radnor. The reason for the present
change is that there are so many more
people living in Rockefeller than there
are seniors that the cost of the extra
exchanges would be very high.

Canvass for Pledges Begun This Week
The canvass to raise the money neces-
sary to run Bates House, over and above
the thousand dollars on the C. A. Budget,
has already begun. $500 must be raised
in order to carry on the work.
A Bryn Mawr worker is needed next
summer to look after the New York end
of Bates House, that is to arrange and
get under way the parties sent down
from Spring Street to Long Branch.
Bates House, which will have its sev-
enth season this summer, is entirely sup-
ported by Bryn Mawr and run by Bryn
Mawr volunteer workers. It is open
from the middle of June to the first
week in September.
