once at Stanford when Hall was

when he asked Frost to write the

When Frost made his last visit
to Ann Arbor in 1962 (he was
poet-in-residence here in the early
twenties), Hall enjoyed his com-

dear: poets, poetry, and New Eng-
On Feb. 10, the Professional
Theatre Program will present the
world premiere of "An Evening's
Frost," Hall's new play on the
poet that he .has admired since he
was a boy. The play is being pro-
duced by Marcella Cisney, associ-
Ite director of PT?. y
"It is not really a play," Hall
explained in a recent interview.
The Broadway cast of Will Greer,
Jacqueline Brookes, Staats Cots-
worth and Donald Davis do not
have specific roles. They shift
their identities within the dramat-
10 portrayal so they can present a
full portrait of Frost, not just
mimi his life.-.
"It is in between a poetry read-
ing and a play-more like a plat-
form drama," Hall said. The pro-
duction is about 70 per cent poe-

undergraduates are turning to ex-
tracurricular activities in greater
numbers than ever before and are
leading more meaningful lives as
a result, according to a recent re-
port made by Harvard President
Natham M. Pusey.
"'Big activities' have tended to
give way to those conducted in
smaller groups; and those of a
more mature nature with substan-
tial intellectual content have gain-
ed at the expense of the kind of
earlier undergraduate a c t i v i t y
which seems in retrospect to have
been carried on sometimes almost
for activity's sake," he said.
He attributed the student shift
to more relevant and intellectually
rewarding activity to its increased
sophistication and with its desire

Talks To Honor Cooley,
Former U' Sociologist
By ADA JO SOKOLOV
DONALD HALL (left) is shown with Robert Frost (right), an
inspiration to Hall and other poets of his time. As a eulogy to
Frost, Hall has gathered his poems, letters and memoirs into a
"platform drama," "An Evening's Frost," to be performed by the
Professional Theatre Program on Feb. 10-14.

of Charles Horton Cooley, one of
the founding fathers of sociology

Schnore of the University will de-
liver a lecture on "Cooley as as
Territorial Demographer" in Aud.
At the third lecture, March 18,
Prof. Philip Rieff of the Univer-
sity of Pennsylvania will speak
on "Cooley and Culture" in Aud.
Prof. G. E. Swanson of the so-
ciology department at the Uni-
versity will conclude the series
with a lecture on "Human Na-
ture and the Search for a Nat-
uralistic Ethic" in Aud. A, April 8.
Charles Cooley is one of the
first names that a student taking
Sociology 100 at the University
encounters. His conception of pri-
mary groups as the basis of social
interaction is basic to sociology.
"Cooley was a withdrawn and
introspective man and he had few
friends," Prof. Robert Cooley An-
gell of the sociology department
and Cooley's nephew, said recent-
ly. Angell said he did not know
his uncle well as a young child,
but he became a student under
him at the University and Cooley
directed Angell's thesis.
Angell remembers Cooley as a
poor lecturer, which he partially
attributes to his deafness but al-
so to his shyness and introversion.
His best teaching was done in
small seminars where he would
have the students submit questions
from the readings for discussion.
"My students are my eyes and
ears," Cooley often said.
Angell divides Cooley's philoso-
phy into two areas. First, Cooley
emphasizes the close link be-
tween psychology and sociology,
placing great importance on the
"mental character of society." He
once said that "man is social,

Where does a small company
turn for help in marketing a new
project if they can't afford a
consultant? For years, graduate
classes in market research in the
School of Business Administration
have been dealing with just this
type of problem .
A prime example is that of the
small Michigan company which
developed a new, very competitive
product-an electric cart for car-
rying personnel around a plant.
An executive of the company
had attended a businessman's ex-
tension course in Grand Rapids
sponsored by the University. He
thus spoke to his teacher, James
Pilcher, who referred him to Prof.
Alfred W. Swinyard, director of
the Bureau of BusinessdResearch.
Swinyard suggested that it
might be a suitable program for
the graduate market research
class, providing the company was
willing to be a guinea pig. The
exegitive agreed and made a pres-
entation to the class of Prof.
