"Lost Chord" Rings On Silent Chimes For Ghost Students Whether or not anyone noticed it, the chimes were not working last week. Or perhaps we should say—> they were not working audibly. It seems that the amplifier, which broadcasts the chime tones to the outside world," was temporarily out of commission. Thus it happened that though the chimes chimed, the sound didn't register upon the ears of anyone outside the chime room. The chimes were purchased* by the Student Council in May, 1939. Several concerts have been played on them. During one period, there was a concert of popular music oil Wednesday evening and a concert of Hymns' on Sunday afternoon,- both playedfby; Jack Tremaine; Traverse City senior. The fundamental purpose of the chimes S# to ring at regular intervals during the #ay. Game Rooms Nearly Completed According to-Mrs. Helen V. Porter- field, social ■ director of Sloan Hall, the reception rooms at the dormitory should be completed within the next two weeks. The game rooms will function as a separate unit from the dormitory. This unit will have a separate entrance and will contain a kitchenette, telephone, and other necessary equipment. Five rooms are included in the unit: one large room, which will accommodate possibly one hundred people; two smaller recreation rooms; and two committee rooms. Groups wishing to use these rooms should make preliminary arrangements in the office of the Dean of Women. Final arrangements can be made by contacting Mrs. Porterfield.

Any students, especially freshmen and sophomores, who are interested in debating, oratory, or extempore speaking are requested to call at the speech offices.

The students will be the after dinner speakers. Bush Announces Dramatic Plans Permission Sought to Produce "Stage Door"; "Man Who Came to Dinner" to Be Repeated. According to the tentative schedule announced by Fred R. Bush, director of dramatics in the speech department, the dramatics program at Central Michigan College this year should prove full and worthwhile. . First on the list is "The Man Who Came to Dinner;" a play presented by the summer students and received enthusiastically by its capacity audiences. Most of the main characters are in school again this fall, so the play will not be a difficult undertaking. Mr. Bush has applied for permission to produce "Stage Door" as the first new play of the year. Since the cast is largely girls, and so is the enrollment in play production class, this great drama will be extremely suitable in. every light of consideration. Most of the cast will be players new to the Central stage and audience. Masquers will be on hand as usual and although no specific assignment has been made for the club, such plays as Rice's "Cbun- sellor-at-Law," Maeterlinck's "Pel- leas and Melisande," and Barrie's "Dear Brutus" are being considered. The department will also carry on other activities, such as the preparation of a series of Shakespearean scenes to present in high schools, promotion of the third annual high school play festival, and the participation in the state festi- fal at East Lansing. The annual spring play for the college spring festival or commencement time, according to the program set up by the student council, will again be undertaken by the dramatics department. There will be an all-college , dance Saturday night> October 18, ' at 8 p. m., in the Keeler Union ballroom. - . .--■•- •-• »■•>-• Dictaphones Installed to Record Data of Courses, Credits; Individual Progress. With the total welfare of the students as its main objective, the re* oently established Student Ferson.- nei Division at Central Michigan College is probably among the most unique in the country. Aid in course planning, representation of the student in discipline problems, and the general well-being of the student in such as medical, social, academic and if necessary financial problems have become the concerns of the Division. • A "Guide Book for Education Development" prepared toy Dr. Trout with suggestions from other faculty members was distributed on registration day. Representing all phases of the students college living the book is kept as a record of courses taken, courses', yet to take, social participation, time distribution, personality ratings and development* and special skills. Complete records are gathered by the department from faculty members and the student' himself. Thus a clear, concise picture is presented regarding courses, credits', and individual progress. As an aid in gathering information dictaphones have been installed in the personnel offices upon which both students and teachers may record date. All student records will be kept in these offices. An executive committee composed of Dr. Trout, dean of students; Dr. D. Louise Sharp, dean of women; and George W. Lauer, dean of men, have general charge of the supervision and administration of the division. Dr. Trout is chairman ot this committee. The newly organized division, according to Dr. Trout, will work closely with student organizations such as the Men's Union, Women's League, Student Council, and other groups. Conference rooms' affording quiet and privacy are available for the use of any student or faculty committee or for private conference with faculty advisers. Dr. Trout emphasized the fact that this new system is to aid the student to help him in planning his academic schedule, and in general development. As dean of students Dr. Trout will act almost wholly in an administrative capacity, organizing the department and attending to administrative details. "We will probably make many revisions during the course of the year", said Dr. Trout, "but that is to be expected in a field that is almost wholly uncharted." Light Housekeeping Group Elects Officers The light housekeeping group of Ronan Hall elected Ruth Morrow, Petoskey sophomore, and Ruth Ha* ven, Clio junior, as chairman and co-chairman for their group this week. The senior representative is Betty White, Howard City; Grace Chis- holm, Owendale junior, represents her class; Bernice Stanley, Farwell, is sophomore representative; and Betty Ruetss, Remus freshman, is her class-representative. ill!
