Light-Hearted Comedy'
"The Boys from Syracuse" is a
light-hearted a d a p t a t i o n of
Shakespeare's comedy of mistaken,
identity, "The Comedy of Errors,"
which in turn was taken from
Plautus' "The Menaechmi."
"Five Finger Exercise" won
Peter Schaffer the New York Crit-
ics' Circle Award for "Best Foreign
Play of the Year," and over-

sorbed into a loving family. But
in his gentle, naive way, the tutor
innocently triggers the selfish pas-

sham, each member of the family

Ugo Betti, often regarded as one
of Italy's finest playwrights of
this century, turned to politics in
"Queen and the Rebels." The dra-
ma of a queen assaulted by ideas
and people alien to the form of

searches the workings of political
The rebels gradually take over
her country, to rule in the name of
the people. But as the political
struggle progresses, the audience
becomes aware of the wrenching

dures as her ideas and her world
For a change of pace, Dylan
Thomas' "Under Milk Wood" will
be presented the following week.
Hailed by critics and audiences
alike, "Under Milk Wood" is a
gently humorous, always loving
look at life in a small isolated
Welsh town.
The concerns, passions, and
daily movements of the people of
Milk Wood are protrayed in flow-
ing verse by one of ourgreatest
modern poets.
Radio Production
Originally written as a radio
production, "Under Milk Wood"
was transformed into an impres-
sionistic stage play in 1953 that
has been charming audiences ever
since. Variously described as a
more universal "Our Town" and a
"dazzling combination of poetic
fireworks and music-hall humor,"
the play will be directed by Clari-
bel Baird.'
University Players will wind up
its summer season with two op-
eras, Pergolesi's "La Serva Pa-
drona" and Puccini's "Gianni
Schicchi." Presented by the Opera
Department, School of Music, the
productions will be directed joint-
ly by Josef Blatt of the Music
School and Jack E. Bender of the
Speech Department. They will be
given on a double bill August 8-10,

Notes Need.
Of Affiliate
To Set .Pace,
"Fraternity men and sorority
women are expected, because of{
selection and high standards, to1
set the pace for the other young
people," the national president of
Lambda Chi Alpha declared Sat-
In addressing an Alpha Gammac
Delta alumnae workshop, Tozier
Brown examined some of thef
challenges and problems facing af-
"I think we should rejoice in1
the fact that we have a continuing
opportunity to prove that a soror-
ity produces better women and a
fraternity builds better men. How
else would we justify our exist-
Maintain Standard
To maintain this standard of'
excellence "in scholarship, leader-
ship, deportment, the social graces
and ultimate leadership," Brown
urged that affiliates strive to re-
tain their ideals, qualitative growth
and reputation.
"A fraternity is not an expedient
thing; it is a vital living force that
is based upon sound ideals," he
said. "Lambda Chi Alpha . .. feels
strongly about its rituals and
teachings-not because they are
secret or old, but because they are
positive and good and represent
what we all aspire to be."
Brown then noted that by 1970
the college population will have
have been double, but predicted
that the number of affiliates will
remain the same, due to the
"small-living" fraternal concept
and the difficulties in beginning
new chapters.
Build Quality
"The obvious answer to me is
building strength in quality, not in
size. All of us must move steadily
towards . . . eliminating the dis-.
tracting elements which tend to
lead men and women away ft'om
the basic seriousness of purpose
for which they are enrolled in
higher education."
He pointed out two Lambda Chi
chapters had been suspended be-
cause the men "were not of qual-
ity and high standards."

Investigation s
DULUTH-University President
Harlan Hatcher, speaking last
week at a meeting of the Society
of Naval Architects and Marine
Engineers, urged an increase in
the amount of basic research be-
ing applied to the commercial, sci-
entific and recreational resources
of the Great Lakes.
Several of the problems he said
needed more understanding in-
cluded the need for larger locks at
Sault Ste. Marie, how to extend
the shipping season from seven to
nine months and the necessity for
deeper channels to help combat
foreign shipping competition.
"As the world's largest source of
potable water, the lakes must be
made to yield more information
about themselves and their aquatic
President Hatcher noted that the
Great Lakes Research division of
the Institute of Science and Tech-
nology was doing a good deal of
work in tackling these and other
questions posed by the Great Lakes
