Much of the equipment has be-

productions the off-stage area has
been totally inadequate.
Cites Economy-
The theatre was only renovated
for reasons of economy. If the

more money they would have just
built a new theatre under much

One of the innovations likely to
be most immediately appreciated
by the audiences is complete air-
conditioning for the entire theatre.
The 'largest area of stage reno-
vation has been lighting. An entire
new lighting system following the
keynote of versatility has been in-
The theatre has been entirely
rewired so that few if any lighting
cables will have to be used. There
will be outlets almost any place
a light need be placed.
A new interlocked dimmer board
has been installed where the boxes
on the side of the balcony used to
be. This serves two purposes; the
lighting technician can see almost
the entire stage and the lights
can be much better controlled
than previously.
One of the important advan-
tages is that the intensity of all
the lighting can be varied pro-
portionately. This means that if
the intensity of the lighting is to
be raised or lowered it can be done
without destroying the atmosphere
or balance.
New Instrumentation
Complete new instrumentation
has also been installed for the
actual lights. The protuding foot
lights have been replaced with the
disappearing variety to allow for
flush stage to the very edge of
the stage.
. New cove lights have been in-
stalled at the sides of the house
to allow for side lighting of 'the
front of the stage without the
previous bare pipes. Lighting for
the psychlorama, the back wall of
the stage, has been redone so that
it hangs from a pipe curved to
its shape, allowing for an even and
balanced back lighting.
Off-stage area has been increas-
ed with the addition of more ac-
tual room and the removal of the
pinrail from just off stage left
to along the wall on stage right.
Provides Range
With these changes more scen-
ery can be used and larger scen-
ery can be used, that is, it will
now be possible to use movable
wagon sets and full stage one
piece sets and still change sets.
Trueblood has had its balcony
redone for seating, giving it a
capacity of 761, and the lighting
there too has been redone with
more equipment and a new light-
ing booth behind the balcony.

"Problem areas of communica-
tion sometimes behave as if they
existed in a vacuum, or they are
oversimplified; they are stated or
published, and forgotten," Prof.
Lawrence Borosage of the Michi-
gan State University education
school said speaking on the topic
"Communication in College ad-
The lecture was part of the two-
week Midwest Community College
Leadership Program, conducted
jointly by the University, MSU and
Wayne State University.
Prof. Borosage said that the
prerequisites to good communica-
tion are the trust, or lack of trust,
as the case may be, between the
student and the administration,
the ability of the communicator to
create a feeling of interdependence
among people in various organiza-
tions, the distributing of awards
fairly within an organization and
the success in coming to common
understandings and agreements as
to the social structure of the or-
On the subject of the elements
of communication Prof. Borosage
said that it is necessary to estab-
lish goals for all involved in the
institutional area. A method of
attaining these goals must also!
be established, he added.
The roles of the administrative
structure are to create an atmos-
phere and a reward system in
which a person may feel an in-
tegral part of the organization.
The administration should try to
incourage such a system while
trying to maintain social control
in informal groups.
The administration is a power-
ful force in institutional com-
munication, and should try to des-
cern group standards, for these
and other items influence the
problems, prerequisites and ele-
ments of communication, he said.

"Color in the theater, as in any
composition, is never alone," Lucy
Barton, noted costume designer
and author, said yesterday in her
lecture on "Costuming."
"Emphasis in the theater is
created by color, and directed by
color," Miss Barton said. Color
consideration is based upon the
mood set by the play.
"You must have cooperation be-
tween the designer and lighting
technican, otherwise the most
awkward situations can result,"
Miss Barton said.
Near Panic
"For example, we were doing
'Dear Brutus' and I had dressed
the wife of the unhappy artist in:
a subdued, but burning scarlet.
Came opening night and I sud-
denly realized that the chair in
which the wife spent almost all of
her time was a shade of scarlet.
"It was opening night, and we
couldn't find any other dress for
the wife, so I began preparing
myself for the critics wrath when
a young man came up to me and
offered a solution. We covered the
chair with layers of black gauze
and it changed the color to ma-
roon which wasn't nearly as bad."
Lighting also plays an impor-
tant part in setting the mood ofr
a stage production. If you want
to place an air of poverty about
an actor, you don't dress him in
bright colors, but more subdued
colors. Even this can be ruined
by improper lighting. A purple
dress in emerald light will look
brown to the audience.
New Fabrics
"The fabrics used in the theater
today are a lot different from
when I began to design," she
said. "We had only cotton and
satin and. a few others to create
with. Now you have ,all the syn-
thetic - fibers and new color
"The standards of the theater
have changed also," said Miss
Barton. When I first began de-
signing a 'good girl' wore either
a navy blue or brown suit with
a white collar. Now she might be
seen wearing anything from a pair
of tights to a bikini."
Miss Barton concluded by say-
ing, "Color should always be used
in relation to the scenery, the
other colors on the stage, and
lighting, but above all, used in-

BOULDER, Colorado - Thirty-
two out of thirty-seven fraterni-
ties and sororities at the University
of Colorado have agreed to the
non-discrimination policythat will

Arthur Kiendl, dean of students
said recently.
This announcement came after
the Board of Regents reaffirmed
the September 1 deadline that was
set more than six years ago.
After the deadline, the Univer-
sity will place on probation any
fraternity, social organization or
other student group "that is com-
pelled by its constitution, rituals
or government to deny member-

race, color, or religion. Organiza-

AUSTIN - The Texas Commis-

IOWA CITY - A State Univer-
sity of Iowa graduate student was
denied renewal of his student
visa recently. This has prompted
a six page letter of protest to the
President Virgil M. Hancher from
a faculty member.
Dina Nath Bedi, who was work-
ing on his Ph.D., was not extended
his visa by .the Immigation and
Naturalization Service (INS) In
Omaha on the grounds that he
was not carrying the required
academic load to retain the visa.
He received notice on June 23 that
he was to leave the country within
30 days.
In an editorial in The Daily
Iowan, asking the INS to recon-
sider their decision, it was pointed
out that "the essential thing in the
Bedi case is the fact that Bedi's
academic career was put in jeop-
ardy by the non-renewal of his
student visa."

AUSTIN-Segregation policies of
the University of Texas and near-
by commercial interests are the
major reasons for the loss by the,
University of a Peace Corps train-
ing program.
Contracts for the training of a
Corps mission to Brazil were in-
stead unexpectedly awarded to the
University of Oklahoma.
The Texan, the student news-
paper, reported that Bill Moyers,
Peace Corps associate director for
public affairs, said University se.
gregation policies played "no min-.
imum part in our final decision to
give the contract to Oklahoma."
The Peace Corps administration
had assumed that the University
of Texas was fully integrated when
they made plans for the program.
