ens TbnigM in Auditorium Campus Cut-Ups ■ by Tap Tonight the Central Michigan players will present the first show of the summer theater at Central, "iPapa is All." The play, a hilarious comedy, was a dificult one to produce because of the Pennsylvania- Dutch accents in the^ cast, and Professor Fred R. Bush, director of the play, has earned a truly high commendation for his efforts in making his cast learn the patter of their, roles. Slightly prejudiced, we insist that Doty Ayre,, who plays Emma, is worth seeing, on any stage at any time, Fred Congdon, Jack.Iskin, Marge Wise, Ruth Horn, and "Coordination" Cramer, the other characters in the play, are experienced in front of the footlights at Central, and should'turn out good performances in "Papa is All." See you there. Our roving reporter, Tutti. tells us that Walt Hurt goes on undeterred, still looking for "types." Oh, 'Shaw, Walt! , Centmlnav" Have just come from Ronan where it is difficult to determine whether the Civil War is over or no. It seems the delegates from Kentucky .Tennessee, Missouri, and hither and yon are partial to the Confederate .Flag; they hang it in their rooms. "Colonel, suh, will you he so kind as to run up the ensign and hand me mah mint julep? Well, bless mah Stars and Bars, and call me 'Rebel.'" What a term for transfers! First it was the airplane drivers. We went out for a drink of water, and they left for Emory and Henry college. Hardly had we dried our eyes, when the Rebel scourge had crept in again from Emory and two colleges in Missouri. E.R.A. wants one and all to know that of all the things her palmist of last week predicted for her, three- fourths of them have come true; she has to wait two years for the other 25 per cent. Yes, guilty again. I'm off; aren't we all,? fe VOLUME 26 MOUNT PLEASANT, MICHIGAN, WENESDAY, JULY 18, 1945 NUMBER 29 The Play's the Thing-But Rehearsals Help!

Civilian Enrolment Shows 1945 Gain 562 Civilians Attending CMCE Compared to 462 in 1944 Summer Final figures released by the personnel office this week show there is a defininte increase in civilian enrollment this year over that of last year. Approximately 562 civilians are attending Central Michigan this sumiher compared to 462 as of July 1, 1944. A summary of- the two years shows that 375 were enrolled on July 1, 1044 in the regular six-week session while 433 are in the same course this summer. Thirty-one were enrolled in the 16 week session compared to 22 this year. Graduate students numbered 30 last summer while there are 26 now. The Higgins lake center had 38 students this sumimter compared to 26 last year. There are' also 43 students doing residence work at Walloon lake and Detroit this year. It is apparent* that most of Central's students come from Isabellla and nearby counties, such as Saginaw1, Montcalm, B aiy, Tuscola, Gratiot, Huron and Midland. Counties with the least attending are' those of the southwestern part and those on the southern border. Even the Upper Peninsula has contributed, with one from Houghton, two from Chippewa, and three from Mackinac. There are few counties which do not have at least one student representing it. The V-12 program brings students from 21 different states with Ohio, Kentucky, Wisconsin and Tennessee in the lead. Eighty-five women students are residing at Keeler Union Residence hall during the six weeks summer session, according to Miss Grace E. Fettig, social director.

The box is locked, covered by a canvas jacket, securely tied, and placed in a cabinet. The magician, counts to three, and presto, he disappears, his lady assistant standing in his place.

Spanish-American School Now Open Centred Combines with Washington to Combat the Mexican Problem Here A Spanish-American ' school is now functioning in Fancher school to take care of the social and economic aspects of the Mexican problem in Mt. Pleasant. This problem arises from the Spanish speaking laborers who came first to work in the beet fields but have now established residence here. Educational problems that are confronted are getting the children to attend school. The young children speak no English, and the school attendance is broken and meager so they are below grade level. The average school teacher is not prepared to handle children of this type, and their limited contact with Anglo-American children cause them to be shy and poorly adjusted socially. The plans of the school are under direction of C.M.C.E. with funds provided by the inter-American Affairs in Washington, D. C. The school will take care of 25 to 35 children between the ages of seven and fourteen and will run from June 11 to July 20, Purposes of the school will be to educate the boys and girls enrolled, raise the general level of teaching Mexican children, and to study their health problems through physical examinations and provide needed remediation.
