They will mako an intensive study of the one act play and play direction, later studying make up and play writing. Rehearsals have begun on Edna St. Vincent Malay's "Aria Da Cape,' a one act fantasy. It is one of her more cynical wonts---unusual for Millay who is interested primarily for beauty in writing. Its theme deals with the vitality of tragedy, wtiich is vital at the moment but quickly forgotten. Other one acts under consideration include "A Game o£ Chess,'· heavy drama by Kenneth Sawyet Goodman, "The Young Idee" by Herbert Swears, a comedy; "Memory Roses" by C. F. Ranton and "Pink in Patches," a comedy drama which won a Samuel French prize in the National Little Theatei tournament in 1928.

ASHLAND, Ohio, March 17. ^P) --Betty Coed of 1931 is a better gtrl physically than Betty Coed of 50 years ago. She weighs more, is taller and has a greater lung capacity and chest girth. This was revealed today by Dr. Edwin E. Jacobs, president ot Ashland college, who 'during the last 15 years, has studied the physical measurements taken of 6,000 girl freshmen in five colleges during the last.half century. The ages of the girls measured were approximately 18 or 19 years. 18 or i9 years. In his analysis Dr. Jacoba used index figures indicating for comparison the averages of th measurements. The Figures Are: 50 Years Ago Today Weight 113.8 123.2 Height ..159.5 161.6 Lung capacity ....150.6 1G5.6 Cheat Girth 78.1 80.7 Dr. Jacobs said that the causes for increased vigor perhaps are: College girls may now be coming from a different stratum of society than formerly. Previous improved high school training in physical education. General health conditions of all homes are better than formerly. General Improvement. It may also be that the general physical vigor of this part of the population is improving. More vigorous and robust · girls are setting out for college rather' than the weaker ones. Dr. Jacobs made his study to determine whether "the old saw that 'we are growing weaker and wiser' wag true." "Aside from war, which if unrestrained will lead the race to the very verge of extinction, we are toh there is soft living which reacts deleteriously on our health," he said. the silhouette slightly flared semi-fitted, a straighter, slimme: line that may be broken by a belt o: beltless. . . . flat-furs predominating . . but with fluffy furs introduced in coats of the afternoon type. New Coat News. If you were to ask any fashion authority for the last word or spring coats, she would probably answer briefly . . . "scarfs and cuffs." This is particularly noticeable in the all-fabric coat that seems to be one o_f the newest coat expressions for spring and one that is bound to be popular for a good many reasons. One is, the possibility it presents 'or variety .-. . with Us collarles- coat and separate scarf which may 3e draped In such a number ot smart ways. One day you may have a coat with a cape effect . . . the next day a coat with revers or fichu . . . the next a mannish sports looking garment with the scarf pertly crossed in the real Lou don manner. And It will really be the same coat all the while . . . the scarf is the secret of Its versatility. Variety in Cuffs. By way of variety in cuff treatments there are numerous Interpretations of the tight sleeve to which is added an upstanding fabric band simulating a flared outline just above or about the elbow . . . cuffs of shaped contours and attached cuffs topped by stitching. . . . keep it flat. Galyak, lapln, dyed to match the color of the coat fabric, leopard, ermine, so intricately worked that they are part of thu line of the coat rather than a trimming. The point is to work out a one-color harmonious color scheme so that if the coat is of a certain color, the fur will blend exactly with the color of the woolen. It is not unusual and Indeed very smart to wear a collarlcss coat with cuffa only, of fur. Slimmer and Straighter Coats. Silhouettes lean toward the straighter lines, and pleats seem destined to play an important part because they have a way of preserving a slim hipllne whan they re stitched down flat to a poiut fhere they only provide for free- om at the hem. This does not mean hat the flare contour will not be seen in the smartest company but it does create a little diversity in style that will be refreshing. MB. AND MRS.
