IT J ENGINEERS TO BE IN ROMANY PLAY Prof. C. M. Sax Announces That Engineering: College Seniors Will Have Charge of Production TITLE IS NOT ANNOUNCED The Romany play for March will ,by senior engineers exclu be sively; they will constitute the entire cast, act as stage hands, build the scenery, and put the play on without any outside assistance. Prof. Carol Sax, head of the Romany productions, said that the title of the play cannot be announced as yet but that it is one of the greatest plays in the English language and was wit-teby a celebrated English dramatist. He also said that John Barry-mor- e took the part of leading man in this play, in which he made one of his best hits with the public It has not been decided which one of the seniors will compete with 's success. n n, Barry-more- This idea of giving the play over to the engineers was originated by Professor Sax. who thinks that it would be valuable for the engineers to know from inside experience the routine of producing a play from the typing of the manuscript to the finished production, the casting, directing, acting, scenery, lighting effects, advertising, box office management, and cost accounting. When he found that some of the engineers could paint as well as some of the art students, he saw no reason why they could not act as well as paint. He shows his confidence in them along the lines of drama in his statement; "I feel sure it will be equal to anything the Romany has ever done in merit." This play has just one female char acter. There is only one girl in the, engineering coiiege, duc sne is not a senior, of course there are girls in the university who have some classes in that college, and then there are those who have been in the engineer ing college; so the suspense of just who this girl will be is very great. It is contemplated taking this play on the senior trip in March. However there has been no official discussion of this.

HATS RELIGIOUS Eugenics (By J. P. Strother, Pastor of Epworth ..

A survey of the higher educational institutions, made by the society's committee on formal education, whoso Chairman is C. C. Little, president of the University of Michigan, reveals of the colleges are that offering instruction in human biology that may be covered by the terms The survey genetics or eugenics. covered 499 institutions.

Teaching of the subject by enthusiasts was deprecated. perhaps That state universities-armore liberal in their treatment of problems qf human biology is indicated, Doctor Little points out, by the fact that state institutions of the West indulge more freely in teaching eugenics. He observes that "along with an impersonal and source of support there may hava grown up a more active appreciation of the responsibility of the individual to tho state." It was also shown that a larger percentage of he Institutions offer courses in eugenics than either the colleges for men or the colleges for women. college groups The show the largest percentage of students taking courses in the subject.

Isaiah portrays the decay In Israel drawing a picture of Israel by using the striking parable of a vineyard. He represents Jehovah as fencing the land of Canaan as a vineyard is fenced, then gathering out the stones and planting Israel there as a vine is planted in a vineyard. Then Jehovah looked that the vineyard should bring forth grapes, and it brought forth wild grapes. "Isaiah then calls upon the people of Jerusalem and Judah to judge between Jehovah and His vineyard. He represents Jehovah as saying: "What more could have been done than I have done to My vineyard? Wherefore when I looked that it should bring forth grapes brought it forth wild grapes?
