PI ETA TO PRESENT BURLESQUE OF WEST

Coach Lord Will Choose Cast at End of Week--Lovely Limbs Yield Place to Fairness of Feature

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Immediately after the selection of the cast and chorus in the latter part of this week, the annual musical production of the Pi Eta Club will go into rehearsal for presentation in the middle of January. Written as usual by undergraduates, the comedy will play three performances in Cambridge and then go on short tours in the neighborhood of Boston.

"Shoot the Works" is the present title of the book written by R. H. Booth '27 and D. S. Gibbs '27. Laid in the open spaces of the west, the story is a broad satire on the western melodrama that has flooded the country on the stage and between the covers of novels for a number of year past. It is possible that the name of the play may be changed, but no further alterations are expected in the libretto.

G. V. C. Lord, who has coached Pi Eta productions for a score of years, will direct the preparation of "Shoot the Works". Due to his appointment as coach of the annual Technology show, it was feared that he might be prevented from assuming his position as director of the Pi Eta presentation, and great satisfaction has been expressed that his services have again been obtained.

Pulchritude at a Premium

Athletic less have always played a large part in the selection of the Pi Eta choruses, but Mr. Lord has declared that this year a premium will be put on beauty in the choice of a singing and dancing troupe. This, it is felt, is the first and most important requisite of any chorus, and an attempt will be made to conform to it so far as possible.

Three Cambridge performances instead of the customary two will mark a departure in Pi Eta policy to be made for the first time this year. The opening presentation, at the Pi Eta Clubhouse on January 15, will be a private performance for graduates only, but the succeeding performances on January 17 and 18, also at the Clubhouse, will be open to the public.
