It assists the students to become acquainted with the ways and customs of other people by bringing speakers and entertainers from various parts of the world. , The chief endeavor of this society is to establish peace.

FAMOUS DRAMA Senior Engineers Will Present Galsworthy's "Justice" in March; Romany Staff Cooperates to Make Play Success. The next play to be given at the Romany Theater, Galsworthy's "Justice," is scheduled for production during the first week in March. The senior class of the Engineering College unanimously chose this great play by a great author when it was found that Dean Paul Anderson desired the seniors to give a play for the cultural and executive value to be derived from such an undertaking. The cast of the drama has practically been completed," and is composed of men from the senior class with the exception of one woman, who will be chosen by vote. The play is a tremendous undertaking and requires such a large cast, crew and staff that very member of the senior class will be pressed into service. Five large sets of scenery are called for in the production, "Justice" being the most elaborate production at the Romany since "Lillom." The regular Romany staff, headed by Professor Carl Sax, and assisted by Elsworth Parrin, of the Carnegie Institute of Technology, will supervise the production, but all of the actual work will be done by engineers. Professor Sax, who Is quite enthusiastic about the play, said:, "I believe that remarkable results will be obtained, due to the 'esprit du corps' for which the College of Engineering is famous. Romany was glad to offer its cooperation and is therefore presenting the Senior Engineering class in one of the roost ambitious dramas of its career." 8UKY WILL BLECT OFFICERS AUDITORIUM AND Fritz Kreisler Will "S!5rS& AMPHITHEATER to Hold Meeting W ing.
