BUTTON FRESHIES! . The "wearing of the green" is the newest thing m fall head gear. Stylists say that the small green cap topped with a clever red button will be very good for campus wear this fall. The cap will be placed rather demurely toward the back of the head and may be worn with any fall costume. The result is very chic. This trend toward smaller and greener head wear will probably decline immediately after Homecoming, but it is a stunning fashion while it lasts.

THE MEN MAKE AN APPEAL kmovement is under way on our carnpus. The men .have decided that it is befitting their place in college Iife to have a recreational spot dedicated to them. They :aspire to have a social center, a place for their "Ladies' Aid" meetings· After all, the ladies on the campus are not the only ones who enjoy chatter. The gentlemen on the campus should be allowed to institute a Men's Aid if they like· The men, a minority in number tho' · not in quality on our campus, may have been neglected when it comes to providing social get·togethers. Perhaps the women have monopolized the social advantages. We sincerely advocate a men's recreational room. They undoubtedly merit it.

"Breathes therei a man with a soul so .dead, who never to himself hath said 'This is my own_:_' ." May the liberty be taken to appi]y thi1s to the spirit of Homecoming? To the uninitiateid-that applies to freshmen, of cou11se, but It won't be long until they have been initiatetd. That. is all a part of the scheme. It has beien found that the freshmen enjoy it, though, q.uite as·much as the upper classmen. 'The climax of Homecoming events wHJ be the football game between Chadron an.d Peru on Saturday afternoon. This game, in addition to being an important contest of the 1season due to its being the Homecoming gamei, will .be decisive in another point; It wi!J _play off a tie! The eve of the game is scheduled for an impo.rtant rally. The Home1 eomlng r.aHy is traditionally the important pep meeting of the1 yeat and it should certainly be inspirational to the Penu te.am, It is the duty of the student bo:dy to make it so. Thci Homecoming pJ,ay "Post Road" commands an outstanding positinn in I the ev·ent1s of the week end. I~ promises .good entertainment-but there is no do1ubt hut that it can speak for itself. And th€\n-dance. This final gel5ture of hospitality for alumni is r,l ways a h~ppy ending to a happy week end.

YDu've- -·r;;ad- the sche.dule know .abo.ut the :events;, one thing, however, that has not reee.;vea its due is Peru, Peru itself. A great deal of the Homecoming air wo.uld be J.ost in any other setting. There is much in Peru to .appreciate; to keep in memory for·even. The hir!~•. red and gold, now.the pict.uresqai:e br.lck walks, with moss-crinkled crevice;s, winding endless paths; campu!S, insurpassable in beauty, and the rlver, not invisible .:n the distance.

Campfire girl, I still noticE1 a few mirnnte details, bu-t it wmsn't until Saturrday, December 12, one week .after its instaHation that I first perceived the new library clock. Hidden auray in M alcove above " the west b.ulletfaJJ 'board the clock ticks away lonely and .unnotice'tl. I have sat next to students who have lea•ned over and whispered, "Have you the time?" "No," replied I impatiently. "Go .gaze uipon ye, clock. What'ya su:ppose they'v·e got one here for?" Therewpon, the anxious one pulls back his chair with a resounding scnape that sets my teeth agnashi.ng, tramps ;unconcernedly over my tender corns, and walks .up to the lihrarians' desk. From there hia car.efiully .and patiently maJ!'ks off: four paces to the east, six pacEls to the south, turns aro.und th11e'e times and looks for the clock. "Darn!" Still patiently-and more card'ullyhe t>rots hack to the desk and reversing the process steps off measured!.y: four paces to t:he sou·th, six paces to the e.ast, turns aro.und two times arnd gazes northward.

TH&EE INTRA:i!URAL TEAMS BATTLE FOR .TOP HONORS Oil'

-~~

Try-oUJts for "One Madi Night" 'by James Reach, mystery farce ih three acts, were held .on Mondiay night. At this writing the cast had not yet been all!ooooced, hut it is expected to contain a number of new people. The date for presentati:on has been set for .March 12, The choice of "One Mad Night" was made from a groop of several pilays considered for the spring presentati-Cm. Reach's pl.ay is expected to be a box-office success. By casting it with new players it is hoped that more experienced players will be available for the one-act plays which wi!il 'be developed for the college play festival to be held mext spring. "One Mad Night" is a drama in the tradition of "'The Bat" and "The Cat and the Canary." The story concerns Don Cutter, a playwright who, accompallljecl: by Wing, his proverb,q1Utoting Chinese valet, goes to the Outter mansion;, a lonely hoiuse in the hills, to compilete his Iatest play in peace and q.u:jet. The hoose has been deserted ·for years, a series of mysteri·ous murdcers having given it the repUitati<>n of being haunted. Don is q1u.ite astonished to find the house tenanted by a number of strange people, including "John Alden," "Priscilla,'' "Mr. Hyde, and "Lady Macbeth." They are Lunatics, under the care of Dr. Bu.Im, whose home 'nearby has burned down. They are q1Uite harmless, hut Don doesn't k:now this. .Among the inmates is LucU!e, a .beaU!tif1u.l girl with an \!'mazing stQry. of p~rsecution and intrig,ue. Like a tiiue Lochinvar, Don is about to ride to her resoo.e when his :ffiancee and her mother p.ut iru an appear.ance with their mll>id, Depression'-:a comely .etharacter. From this point everything happens, including talking ghoC/sts, screaming women, disappearing guests .and, for a cli~ max, the appear.ance on. the scene of an escaped murderer fleeing for .his life.
