Miss Childress is a member of

was well received in an Off
Broadway run some seasons ago.
She had been awarded a grant
by the University to enable her
to participate in the rehearsals;
and is also the recipient of a cre-
ative writing fellowship from
Radcliffe College. She was a
member of the original cast of
"Anna Lucasta" and the author
of a collection of short pieces en-
titled "Like One of the Family.
"Wedding Band" was chosenl
from over 200 scripts because of
the quality of its writing and its
pertinent and moving theme,",

Theatre Program annually pro-1

To facilitate faculty integra-
tion, some school systems have set
up special programs. "Team
watching" is the plan in 16
schools at Chattanooga, Tenn.,
where integrated groups of teach-
ers will plan and evaluate class
work. In Clayton County, Ga., a
federally financed study will be
aimed at preparing other teach-
ers for integrated classes.
W. Lester Banks, executive sec-
retary of the NAACP in Virginia,
said there would be "a substan-
tial increase, no doubt about it."
But he said the rate of desegre-
gation still was unsatisfactory.
While Alabama's situation was
clouded by the governor's move
to nullify compliance agreements,
the majority of local systems have
moved to increase desegregation.
At Selmadcenter of a 1965 civil
rightss drive, the first eight
grades will desegregate, compared
to four grades last year.

Make yourself at home

You'll find everything
you need in a
very friendly atmosphere.
All his...and more .. .
Ugly is only skin-deep.
It may not be much to look at. But beneath that
humble exterior beats an air-cooled engine. It
won't boil over and ruin your piston rings. It won't
freeze over and ruin your life. It's in the back of
the car for better traction in snow and sand. And
it will give you about 29 miles to a gallon of gas.
After a while you get to like so much about the
VW, you even get to like what it looks like.
You find that there's enough legroom for al-
most anybody's legs. Enough headroom for almost
anybody's head. With a hat on it. Snug-fitting
bucket seats. Doors that close so well you can
hardly close them. (They're so airtight, it's better
to open the window a crack first.)
Those plain, unglamorous wheels are each sus-
pended independently. So when a bump makes
one wheel bounce, the bounce doesn't make the
other wheel bump. It's things like that you pay the
$1585 for, when- you buy a VW. The ugliness
doesn't add a thing to the cost of the car.
That's the beauty of it.
