'U' Players Set Drama Goals
"The goal of the University
layers' choice of productions is
> help provide a fairly balanced /
ill of fare for the Ann Arborr
:mmunity in the area of drama," '{f'
rof. William P. Halstead of the.
;eech department said.
He pointed out that Broadway
lays were often presented byX
rama Season, Civic Theatre and
he movies. The Players strive to'
resent other forms of theatre to
ound out the selection.:
He said the group is inclined to
o the classicd but that it is mov-
ag in the direction of experimen-

Weak Response .
"So far the audiences haven't
responded very well to this type
of theatrical presentation, and so
we have to move very slowly."
The University Players, formerly
known as Playbill, have given
many productions of Shakespeare,
Moliere and Shaw. They have
presented the, anonymous Chinese
"Chalk Circle," Sophocles' "Elec-
tra," Carlo Goldone's "Comedia
del Arte" scripts, Marlowe's "doc-
tor Faustus," and 19th century
French farces such as "Horse Eats
Hat." They have also done most
of the Mozart operas and have,
presented Gilbert and Sullivan
In addition the speech depart-
ment sponsors a laboratory play-
bill featuring productions directed
and staged by students.
"In the lab playbill even more
unusual things can be done," Prof.
Halstead said. This group has
done foreign language plays, five-
act tragedies, and even student-
written dramas.
Easier Plays
In general the modern, realistic
play is easier for the students to
comprehend than the classical or
the avant garde material, he said.
They require fewer rehearsals

DRAMA--The University Players presented "Annie Get Your
Gun" last spring under their former name, Playbill.

Other types entail special in-
structions in style, culture, and
costuming which place an extra
burden on the director and the
"This is a realistic period as far
as drama is concerned," Prof. Hal-
stead said. "Radio, TV and motion
pictures are almost exclusively
adapted to realism, the stage is
more flexible."
"Many times the classics are
acted in modern style, but it is
commonly believed that it is more
appropriate to portray them in the
style in which they were written.
"We compromise," he said, "and
we strike a medium between the

original style and a style accept-
able to the modern audience."
The first student curricular pro-
duction, Sheridan's "The Rivals,"
was presented in 1909, under the
auspices of the University's Ora-
torical Association.
In 1915 the first course in play
production was offered and early
in 1916 the speech department
presented its first play, "The Ser-
vant in the House," by Charles
Rann Kennedy.
By 1922, the speech department
had six play production courses in
its curriculum, and it used make-
shift theatres until 1928 when
Prof. Valentine B. Windt joined
the faculty as director of play
The department was then given
the Mimes Theatre, a building
formerly used as a dance hall by
the Michigan Union. The depart-
ment renamed it the Laboratory
Theatre and used it for classes
and workshops until 1946.
Mendelssohn Opens
The Lydia Mendelsohn Theatre
was opened in 1929, and major
speech productions were soon
moved there, the Laboratory
Theatre being used only for work-
shops. It was later condemned as
a firetrap.
Since 1957 speech department
activities have been carried on in
the Frieze Bldg., where laboratory
productions are staged in True-
blood Aud and the Arena Theatre.
Mosse To Lecture
On Nazi Socialism
"Germany Prepares for Nation-
al Socialism: The New Romanti-
cism" will be the subject of a
lecture to be delivered by Prof.
George Mosse, of the University
of Wisconsin at 4:15 p.m. Mon-
day in Aud. A.

U' Students
See, Debate
Nearly 600 students packed an
overflowing Multipurpos Rm. in
the Undergraduate Library yes-
terday to view the controversial
film "Operation Abolition."
The film will also be shown at
7:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Archi-
tecture Aud. The program, spon-
sored by the Student Government
Council Cinema Guild, will include
tapes of the hearings and a pro-
con student debate.
Jointly sponsored by the Political
Issues Club and Voice political
party, the program featured the
film which was produced by the
House Un - American Activities
Committee to portray the student
anti-HUAC riots last May in San
Francisco. The film attempts to
show that the demonstrations
were Communist initiated and led.
Mandell Absent
William Mandell, San Francisco
newsman and witness before the
committee in the film, was un-
able to be on the program because
of illness.
Replacing Mandell, Kenneth
McEldowney, '62, Voice operations
chairman, said that the slanted
programs, including the film, of-
ten blind audiences to what op-
posing speakers say.
Liberals Suspect
"With such an atmosphere, any
opinions which are of a liberal
cast are suspect. The danger in-
herent in this curtailment of free-
dom of speech is obvious," he
While the views expressed by
members of the audience were, in
general, sharply critical of the
film, a minority believed that
"Operation Abolition" was of de-
finite value in exposing the Com-
munist threat that exists in the
United States.
Others believed that the com-
mitee had stooped to the Com-
munist tactics of propaganda and
distortion in order to prove its
