One hundred per cent campus attendance is the goal. Arborcroft, Eaton house, Allen house, Crane house, Scott house, Edmunds house, Brackett house, England house, Fields house and Freeland manor all promise their 100 per cent support. The Valkyries are backing it 100 percent. Are you going to be there? Don’t forget—Friday evening at 7:30 in Holmes hall, for 25 cents. And in case you can’t come then, the matinee is at 4, for 15 cents, minus the fashion show.
