The play, whose plot dealt with the heroine's desire for lovers with "romance in their soul" and their admirers' attempt to be that kind of lovers, was very humorous. Shirley Harvey, as the romantic heroine; Evelyn Becker, her equally romantic maid-of-all work; Janet Lou Sage, as the au- thor of the romances they so admired; Dale Lockwooa, jJenneth Patterson, and Jerome Spderberg as their respective admirers all gave fine performances, as did Lavina Groeh and Patricia Wolf, as maiden ladies who were very much interested in the various romances. Between act numbers included music by Shirley Lockwood, the girls' trio, the girls' sextette, and vocal solos by Leugenia Riedel and Gary Kienitz. The play was directed by Rosalie Hunt, who was presented with a gift by the class. College Booster Trip Mr. and Mrs. H. £.
