THEY'RE ALMOST GONE-The speech department has almost
sold its season tickets for the current fall playbill. Richard Lutz,
who has sold 400 tickets and Enid Weisband demonstrate their
selling technique on the corner of North University and State
The speech department has al-
most completely sold out the $3
and $4.50 season tickets for its fall
playbill, according to Thomas
Skinner-of the speech department.
At the present time there are
under 20 lower priced season
tickets left. These are scattered
among about 25 student salesmen
and will be sold until the end of
The department expects most of
the remaining season tickets to
be purchased by University alumni
and Ann Arbor residents who were
contacted by 5,000 special mail
order forms sent out yesterday.
. Sales Increase
The increase from the 400 sea-
son ulaybill tickets sold by the
speech, department last year to
the record 800 tickets sold in 17
days this year is due to students
selling tickets on a commission
basis, according to Skinner.
"This year we have sold tickets
to people vho usually do 't think
of going to. the theatre," he said.
"We have tried to make theatre
going a habit by contact students
and Ann Arbor residents person-
As a student theatre playbill,
the productions provide a training
ground fors~tudents. The .plays are
a combination of student and pro-
fessional talent, Skinner said.
"There are only two kinds of
theatre-good and bad," Skinner
commented. "We ;feel that if -edu-
cational theatre is worth doing, it
is worth seeing, so we decided to
try our new plan for season tick-
Ali those who have purchased
season ticketcoupons.can mail
them to the Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre on November 3 to receive
their season: tickets.'
In addition to the regular play-
bill of five productions, those hold-
ing season tickets will see a special.
Hopwood play Nov. 20, 21 and 22
and Mozart's opera,"Cosi Fan
Tute" Dec. 15, 16 and 17.
The playbill will include Eugene
O'Neill's "Ah Wilderness," "The-
Matchmaker" by Thornton Wilder,
Rossini's "The Barber of Seville,"
in conjunction with the, music
school, "Volpone" by Ben Jonson
and Sophocles' "Electra.".
"The department eliminated
special student tickets this year
for the playbill because. they were'
not a good idea," Skinner sadd.;
When students bought the tick-
ets for $3.50, all the good seats'
in the front row, were usually
taken, =leaving'only the poorer ones
for non-students. There actually
are no "bad" seats this year be-
cause the $3 seats include 2 rows in
the back of the first floor and 5
rows in the balcony.
Prof. Walter L. Chambers, new-
ly appointed chairman of the Uni-
versitys landscape architecture
department said recently he hoped
to increase the enrollment in the
department by making the unit
morenattractive to prospective
He cited the need for landscape
architects both in private consult-
ing offices and in such govern-
mental offices as the National
This semester there are only 14
students seeking a bachelor of sci-
ence degree in landscape archi-
tecture and one working toward
a master's degree.
Taught at Harvard
Prof. Chambers' appointment
marks the end of 25 years as a
consultant and a teacher of land-
scape architecture at Harvard
Among Prof. Chambers other
objectives will be an effort to edu-
cate citizens on the scope of the
profession and the role it plays
in their daily lives.
Prof. Chamberssaid that the
sites, for many new construction
projects are actually selected by
the landscape architect.
To Stimulate Interest
He said he hopes to stimulate1
interest through the creation of
close ties with the botany depart-1
ment. He seeks to increase the use
of Nichols Arboretum, of which
he is director, by setting aside ex-
perimental areas to test various
types of plant life.-
The department of landscapea
architecture is part of the archi-
tecture school. There is emphasis
on the biological sciences and1
each student must include a sum-
mer's work either in the field' or
in a consultant's office.
To Meet CrisisI
-Prof. Chambers believes the1
course is such that the output will-
be able to meet a growing crisis.I
The crisis, he said, is found'in the
cities where residents "now hun-I
ger -.for .beauty -and relief from1
Design is the hnge upon which
all aspects of landscape architec-
ture revolve, Prof. Chambers said.
Just as an architect designs a
building, the landcape architect
designs. the area outside the
building. If more than one build-
ing is involved, the landscape ar-
chitect designs the spaces be-
This, he feels, makes a team
out of the landscape architectt
and the project architect. r

Plan New Tests
Dr. Bagchi,. during a visit to
India in 1957, tested Swami Shan-
tananda with medical field equip-
ment. The researcher now plans a
more extensive series of tests un-
der laboratory conditions.
As the Swami goes into liis
"'posture of deep yogic medita-
tion," Dr. Bagchi will measure
changes in chest and abdominal,
breathing, brain waves, heart rate
and galvanic response. If possible,
he will also measure the oxygen
and carbon dioxide content of the
Dr. Bagchi will require more
than an hour to hook the Swami
up to the various pieces of sensi-
tive measuring apparatus that
will be used in the test. The tests
themselves are expected to take
two to three hours.
The Swami - the title means
"master of his own self" -- is
touring the 'United States to pro-
mote "understanding and progress
through reason and culture of the
self." Indian students at the Uni-
versity have acclaimed him as " a
standard bearerof the higher and
basic 'values of, life for the regen-
efationi of man.
During th 1957 tests, Dr. Bag-
chi found that Swami Shantan-
anda could Iower ,his rate of
breathing to 4 to .7 per minute
while in "deep ineditation." The
normal adult breathing rate
ranges from 15 to 23 breaths per
