The script, the first of its kind, was written by James Ryan, Mt."Pleasant senior. The story takes place on Central's campus and concerns two girls who are having trouble making the adjustment to college life. The girls have a dream in which they are taken down to "Hades;" thereafter things change for both of them. • MUSIC FOR the program has been arranged by John Ryder, Mt. Pleasant senior. The program will also feature an orchestra under the direction of Ryder. * * # There will be two sequences to the show, "Hades*' and a "Night Olub." In the night club scenes there will be a variety of entertainment, singing, dancing, skits, and a musical number by a quartet. Former Student Writes Article The December issue of the "University of Chicago magazine carried an article entitled "When the Storm Comes" by George Kyncl. Kyncl was graduated from Central with a bachelor of arts degree in June 1947. He was a Navy electronics officer and is a writer of verse. After graduation he went almost immediately to Czechoslovakia and enrolled at Charles university for continuance of studies. Kyncl was abroad during the fateful year of 1947-48 and saw the "test-tube experiment with a synthesis of East and West." The article tells of the speed and efficiency of the communist domination of Czechoslovakia. He left Czechoslovakia in June while the country, he said, was in a state of political confusion. He also states that there are many willing to risk death for one more chance to be politically free. The cast for "Frat Frolics" includes in order of appearance: Rodney, a timid college student, Scotty Allen; a very shy coed, Nickie LaSala; very popular coed, Barbara Schell; a messenger from Hades, Bill "Qoggett; Red the Devil, John Gregory; "Van Robin- . son, handsome movie star, Jarvis Boone; Joe the bartender, Ike Rydahl; messenger from heaven, See—FRAT FROLICS—Page four Ii Elected U.S., Foreign Art Copy Shown Reproductions of 26 meritorious paintings by American and foreign artists are now being displayed in the gallery of the Arts and Crafts building.

Pre-Repistrafion Student Adsenq^ Reporting Change "The policy regarding the reporting of stucjeht absence^ ha^ undergone a very signifiq|i||| change," states Dr. David M. Tx_utL "The'main feature of the revision is that teachers'are to report to the Stud,ent Personnel office pnly students who are excessiyely, ajj- sent." A student is considered excessively absent if (i) he is absent three or more consecutive meetings in any class, the reasons for such absence being unknown or unacceptable to the instructor; (2) he is irregular in, attendance to the extent that ttis progress in the class is: retarded.
