sics. The musical ran for two years
in New York and returned to
Broadway this year.
This season will bring many im-
provements on the N o r t h l a n d
theatre layout. The first summer
theatre to use the now-famous
Geodesic dome, it will also be the
first of this type to use a pros-
cenium stage.
Until now, the stage has ex-
tended completely into the dome,
limiting seating capacity and stage
space. The stage now extends only
six feet into the dome, allowing al-
most 100 center seats to be added
to the theatre capacity.
All plays, with the exception of
"Redhead" will open Tuesday and
run through Sunday. "Redhead,"
the opening production, will open
Monday, June 13 and continue
until Sunday, June 20. Curtain
times are 8:30 p.m., except Satur-
day, when there are 7 and 10 p.m.
'U' Opens
To Public
The University's 85-foot radio
telescope will be open to the pub-
lic Sunday, May 29.
The open house for the para-
bolie antenna was scheduled to
give those who did not see the
instrument in the fall an oppor-
tunity to do so. The" first open
house, at which the telescope was
dedicated, met with an overwhelm-
ing response.
The structure was built to de-
tect faint radio signals from space.
Such signals may emanate from
stars and galaxies and may re-
veal those which as undetectable
by visual methods.
(EDITOR'S NOTE: The fol-
lowing is a statement by James
A. Lewis, vice-president for stu-
dent affairs, concerning the
University admission policy.)
On April 26, the Daily car-
ried a story in which By ro n
Groesbeck, assistant director of
the admissions office, discussed
certain aspects of the admis-
sions problems facing the Uni-
versity, and particularly those
which concern the admission of
students from outside Michigan.
It has come to the attention of
the Office of Student Affairs
that the student body and some
members of the faculty have
concluded that there has been
a change in University policy
with respect to admissions. This
is not the case.
For two years now the liter-
ary college has had to limit its
enrollment. Each year there has
been a steady increase in the
number of highly qualified stu-
dents from Michigan H ig h
Schools who have sought admis-
sion. Groesbeck was reporting
some of the questions that come
to the Admissions Office as a
result of steadily increasing
numbers of applicants- rather
than a change in policy.
Other units of the University
are rapidly approaching the
time when pressures for admis-
sion will create new problems
which will need s t u d y and
analysis. These considerations
make it necessary that the Uni-
versity examine its role and re-
sponsibilities. Any basic change
in University admissions policy
will emerge from extensive dis-
cussions betweens the various
schools and the University Ad-
ministration of the problems in-

on the newest addition to the
University Exhibit Museum.
The .,"Georama" exhibit, which
is having its first showing this
weekend, shows all possible types
of land formation-some 400 in
all. The great geological features
of every land are represented

tains, how a volcano is fed, and
how .the Palisades were formed
along the Hudson River.
The land formations are easily

identified through a topographic
map which extends across the top
of the 18-foot exhibit.
The Georama was laboriously
created over a year's time by
Museum artist George Manchard.
Irving G. Reimann, d i r e c t o r,
planned the Georama and re-
lated exhibits in the museum's
new Geology room. He said that
the new exhibit contains as much
basic geological information as
the average introductory course in
the subject might provide. It is
based on A. K. Lobeck's "Pano-
rama of Physiologic Types."
The Georama may be seen on
weekdays and Saturdays from 8
a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from
1:30 to 5:30 p.m.
Visitors will see three related
exhibits in the same area: one on
the origin of the earth's rocks
and their changing form, another
of fluorescent rocks which glow
under ultraviolet lights and a
third on the physical properties
of minerals.
