Orchestra is directed by Antal

"All by herself, she can fill a'
stage with more foolish, funny,
and lovable people than can be
found in any theatre in town,"
Oscar Hammerstein II said of
Mass Grenfell.
Since 1939 she has appeared an-
nually on the London stage and
has worked in movies with Sir
Laurence Olivier, Marlene Dietrich
and Michael Wilding.
Tickets may be purchased from
10:00 a.m. to 5:00 u.m. next week
at Hill Aud.
Marc Connelly's "The Green
Pastures" is, in Connelly's words,
"an attempt to present certain as-
pects of a living religion in the
terms of its believers." He has
translated the reverent and imag-
inative faith of the Negroes of
the deep South into a play which
is a moving chronicle of human
struggle, success and failure and
divine compassion.
"The Green Pastures" will be
presented by the Wayne State
University Theatre on Feb. 12 and
13 and again from Feb. 18-20.
Tickets are available at the
University Ticket Office, Cass and
Putnam, Detroit.

Tennessee Williams' "Sweet Bird
of Youth," now being seen in
G e r m a n y, Sweden, Argentina,
Mexico, Greece and Holland, is at
the Cass Theatre in Detroit un-
til Feb. 12 after a Broadway run
of 383 performances.
Starring in it are Geraldine
Page and Sidney Blackmer in the
roles they created and Rip Torn
whose performances on television
have attracted wide attention.

Next at the Cass Theatre Is
Thomas Wolfe's "Look Homeward,
Angel." Ketti Frings' dramatiza-
tion of the novel met Wolfe's style
so well that the play received the
Pulitzer and New York Drama
Critics' Circle prizes and was one
of last season's eminent successes.
"This is the story of a family
of violent feelings and of a moon-
struck youth dreaming of the
world . . . it has gargantuan hu-
mor and vitality . . . it has the
mark of truth and Miss Frings
has given it honor on the stage,"
New York critic Brooks Atkinson
said when "Look Homeward, An-
gel" opened.
Included in the Detroit cast will
be Miriam Hopkins as Thomas
Wolfe's mother.
Detroit's Shubert Theatre will
be changed into the Oriental
"World of Suzie Wong" beginning
Feb. 8.
Exotic settings and a cast of 41
actors of 11 nationalities and
speaking 14 languages contribute
to the total effect of intrigue and
mystery which have long been as-
sociated with Hong Kong.
"Christian Architecture in the

Roman Empire" will be discussed
by Prof. Richard Krautheimer of
the Institute of Fine Arts, New
York University, in a series of five

Lectures will be given at 4:15
p.m. Feb. 11, 16, 18, 22, 23 in Aud.
B, Angell Hall.
Titles are: Feb. 11 - "The Lat-
eran Basilica in Rome: A Study in
Method;" Feb. 16 -- "Constantine,
and the Christian Basilica;" Feb.

of the Holy Sites -- San Lorenzo
in Rome, St. Peter's, The Holy
Sepulchre;" Feb. 22 - "A Clas-
sical Renaissance in Rome Under

ta Sophia in Constantinople, A
Palace Church."

the will of Thomas Spencer Jer-
ome. They are sponsored jointly

"The Cranes Are Flying," first
Russian movie to be sent to the

Paddy Chayefsky's "Marty,"

South Quad
To Entertain
Students at South Quad will
entertain the Minneapolis Sym-
phony Orchestra at dinner on
Monday, Feb. 8.
Arrangements are being made
by Lyle Hagert, '60M, and his
committee, Douglas O'Handley,
'60, John Charters, '61, and Mrs.
Virginia Harryman, South Quad
Correlating Advisor.
Hagert views this dinner as "an
educational opportunity for stu-
dents who may never again get to
eat with professional symphony
members." Invitations have been
issued to ninety-one orchestra
members and business managers.
Hagert talked with Antal Do-
rati, Minneapolis Symphony Con-
ductor, at a Christmas concert in
Minneapolis in 1958. It was then
that Hagert found out the Min-
neapolis had an engagement in
Ann Arbor in 1960. Since that
time, he has contemplated inviting
the orchestra members to dinner
at the quad. Mrs. Harryman aided
Hagert in his plans.
February 8 will be the first time
South Quad has entertained a
major orchestral group. In the
past East Quad entertained the
Boston Symphony, and the Phila-
delphia Symphony has visited
West Quad.
The Minneapolis Symphony will
be here for their Choral Union
Concert at 8:30 p.m. Feb. 8 in Hill
Plan Housing
For Women
The University will institute a
new type of housing for next fall:
University apartments for wom-
The Office of the Dean of Wom-
en recently announced that 75
spaces in 23 apartments in Cam-
bridge Hall, University Terrace
would become available to under-
graduate women next fall.
The reason for this step is the
loss of Fletcher Hall for women's
housing and the possible tem-
porary loss of West Couzens for
renovation. This would leave at
least the 70 students planning to
return to Fletcher Hall with no
Dean of Women Deborah Bacon
said that this type of University
housing was intended to help those
with genuine financial need, and
the cost would compare favorably
even with off-campus housing.
This type of housing would not
involve "apartment permission,"
and should not affect the situa-
tion regarding outside apartments
for women, Miss Bacon continued.
The structure and government
of Cambridge Hall will be based
on the current system in under-
graduate women's housing. This
will include membership in As-
sembly and representation on the
Assembly Dormitory Council and
membership in and operation un-
der the Women's Judiciary.
Announcement of the methods
for application for residence in
Cambridge Hall will be made dur-
ing March by the Dean's Office.
Qualifications for residence will
include genuine financial need and
sophomore or higher -class stand-
After selection of next year's
residents, a committee will be
drawn from among them to work
out the details of operating pro-
cedu're under the leadership of the
Assembly Board and Women's
