A WIDE SELECTION of costumes will be available 'at the annual Halloween costume sale today and tomorrow in the
Frieze Building. Money raised will help buy costume shop equipment for the Theatre Department.
Used costum'-es beco me

A nickel won't buy much anymore, but today and tomor-,
row it could purchase a variety of items ranging from a pair
of shoes-to raggy shirts.
The annual Halloween costume sale, hosted by, the
University Theatre Program, will offer "lots of good
things," said Zelma Weisfeld, a Theatre and Drama
professor. "Good things" includes velvet jackets, Chinese
clothing, silk dresser, and even some medieval costumes.
PRICES FOR THE goodies range from five cents to $50.
Items from recent department productions are also on sale,
including some costumes that Weisfeld designed.
"The best things go very, very early," cautioned Donald
Hart, a graduate student in directing, "but they do save

some good things and bring them out later."
"HATS GO FAST and so do capes, masks, and
wigs," Weisfeld added. Complete costumes are also for
sale, but Weisfeld said often "people like to make up their
own costumes," and come to the sale for ideas.
Money raised from the sale'will help buy costume shop
equipment. Last year's proceeds helped pay costuming
costs for the department's production of The Lion and the
Jewel, and also bought dressmaker forms for the shop.
"They are necessities (for the shop) but not necessities
you can budget into a show," Weisfeld explained
The racks of costumes and boxes of doodads will line the
hallway near room 1528 in the Frieze Building, between 9
a.m. and5np.m. today andtmrnorrow.

the Vatican Secretariat for Non-Believers, the action is
being taken on the "precise wish" of Pope John Paul II.
Last year the pope said the scientist had been wrongly con-
demned for maintaining that the earth was not the center of
