DRAMA-George Farquahr's Restoration comedy The Beaux'
Stratagem plays tonight in Lydia Mendelssohn as the
first offering of this season's University Players' Playbill
series. The play runs through Saturday. Tickets available
at Mendelssohn box office.
FILM-Ann Arbor Film Co-op features The Hour of the
Wolf at 7 and 9:30 in Aud. A, Angell Hall. Daily reviewer
Terry Martin has this to say about the film: "This is a
horror film, but of the cerebral rather than the scream-
ing sort, so don't expect to be shocked out of your seat.
The scene, however, in which a seductive cutie peels off
first her hat and then the rest of her face might lead
you to wonder if the film has extended itself into "Night
of the Living Dead." Definitely not one of Bergman's
biggies, this flawed attempt to chart a nightmare world
is still a powerful piece of the master's work." Cinema

gram 5 at the Arch. Aud., 7 and 9:05.
MUSIC-The Stanley Quartet gives its first concert of the
season tonight in Rackham at 8. Admission complimen-
tary. This concert marks the Quartet's first appearance
as a piano, not a traditional string, quartet. The pro-
gram will include Beethoven's String Trio in C minor,
Op. 9, No. 3; Piano Trio No. 2 (1955) by University com-
poser-in-residence Ross Lee Finney; and Faure's Piano
Quartet in C minor, Op. 15.
Patricia McCarty, 18-year-old
junior in the University School
of Music, has just returned from
Geneva, Switzerland, after win-
ning the First Silver Medal for
Violists in the 28th International
Competition for Musical Perform-
ers held in September.
She also received an award
from Radio Suisse Romand for
her performance in the recital
phase of the competition. She
was given a grant by the In-
stitute of International Education
to participate in the competition,
considered one of the most im-
portant of its kind in the world.
McCarty competed with 23 vio-
lists under the age of 30' who
came from all over the world.
She was one of 11 who survived
the first competition to play pub-
lic solo recitals. Her program in-
cluded Reger's "Suite for Solo
Viola, No. 3 in E minor"; Brit-
ten's "Lachrymae"; and Hinde-
mith's "Sonata No. 4, Opus 11."

Intervals of lively acting added
a needed light touch to a some-
times talky and tedious Univer-
sity Players' production of The
The complexities of plot and
language and political allusions
in George Farquhar's Restora-
tion comedy provided the com-
pany with a tough challenge.
The meaning of many of the
allusions to life and politics in an
England now long gone is often
lost on a twentieth century audi-
ence. So the humor is also lost
and the comedy that Farquhar
intended falls flat.
But a number of inventive
c o m i c characterizations a n d
handling from the cast kept the
show from floundering. Director
Richard Burgwin has thrown in
many good touches. As each ac-
tor makes his first entrance, the
other performers freeze, while
the entering actor bows to the
auidence. Quick looks and asides
to the audience also work well.
The plot and title refer to the
scheme of two poor rakes, play-
ed by Kenneth Marshall and
James Slaughter, to get a rich
wife. They pose as a 'master and
his servant and run into a seedy,
crooked landlord, a highwayman
and a phony Frenchman.
Slaughter is particularly effec-
tive in the "love scenes" as he
tries to weedle money or infor-
mation from women.
Vivienne Lenk, as a woman
plagued by a "sullen sot" of a
husband, uses a combination of
elegance and with in her por-
trayal. She lists the "joys" of
marriage in one scene with fine
Lawrence Coven, as Gibbet the
highwayman, uses his remark-
able curling moustache and a
strange chortling laugh to create
a memorable character.
Diane Daverman, as Dorinda,
faints with love, flutters and bats
her eyelashes in a good exhibi-
tion of 18th century "feminity."
At last night's performance,
the actors handled a number of
embarrassments, including fall-
ing wigs and dangling hairpins,
with admirable ease.
The set, designed by Alan Bill-
ings, was a bit dull and unin-
teresting. An elaborately painted

Susan Franklin, an education
school senior, won the Michigan
Women's C h e s s Championship
held in Kalamazoo last month,
wresting the title from many-
time winner Doris Thackrey, also
of Ann Arbor.
Two years ago Franklin was
unaware of some of the rules of
chess "like en passant and not
castling through check," and
less than a year ago she played
in her first tournament, the first
Mark's Coffeehouse Open. In
these last two years, while many
of her friends were sewing or
listening to Steinem, Susi has
be e n reading chess, playing
chess,,and breathing air.
Reuben Fine's The Ideas Be-
hind the Chess Openings has
strongly influenced Susi's play,
and in part explains her praxis
of the game as a wholly unified
sequence of moves.
Her self-critical nature explains
her success more. On returning
from Kalamazoo, Susi exclaimed,
"I played horribly." There was
no false modesty in her remark;
it was just her honest severe
Former World Champion Bot-
vinnik said of himself in relation
to the many aspirants to his title
that he was only "the best among
equals;" it was his objectivity
and continual self-evaluation that
created for him this pleasant
contradiction. To whatever level
Susi rises, she will continue to
be the best among equals.

A national chess team tourna-
ment, called the Chess Olym-
piad, is being held in Skopje,
Yugoslavia. The United States
has somehow made it to the
finals without Bobby Fischer,
Samuel Reshevsky, or Larry
Evans. But unless some of the
Soviet players defect, the United
States will not win.
* * *
There will be a chess tourna-
ment this weekend in the Veter-
ans' Memorial Building in down-
town Detroit. The Wayne County
Open is a two day five round
tournament. Instead of playing in
the open, unrated players have
the option of playing in the ama-
teur section, a one day four
round tournament. Open entry
fee is $12.50 ($10.00 if under 21)
and U.S. Chess Federation mem-
bership and Michigan Chess As-
sociation membership. Amateur
entry fee is $10.00, USCF and
MCA membership not required.
Entry deadline is 9 a.m. on Oct.
14. For further details, call Char-
les Bassin, 313-756-2058.
