Trapped
Playwright might not approve of theater's home

The University's newly con-
structed Charles Walgreen Jr.
Drama Center houses the only
theatre in the world to bear the
name of University and Michigan
Daily alum Arthur Miller.
Located on North Campus, the
center houses the School of Music
as well as the Department of The-
atre and Drama.
Miller was a passionate critic of
the anti-Communist hysteria that
gripped American life through-
out much of the first half of the
20th century. His most famous
play, "The Crucible," pilloried
the witch hunts led by Wisconsin
Sen. Joseph McCarthy. In 1956,
Miller refused to testify before
the House Un-American Activi-
ties Committee that sought to
expose "subversives" around the
country.
But now Miller will be for-
ever linked to Charles Walgreen

Sr., a man who was very much a
part of the movement that Miller
decried.
According to The New York
Times, the elder Walgreen, the
founder of the Walgreen Drug
Company, withdrew his niece
from the University of Chica-
go in April 1935, citing "com-
munistic" influences at the
school.
After the Illinois state leg-
islature investigated the
University and the firing of a pro-
fessor, though, Walgreen donated
$550,000 to the University of Chi-
cago in June 1955 for the estab-
lishment ofwhat the Times called
an "institute to study American
principles."
The well-publicized proceed-
ings may have inspired "Honors
at Dawn," a play Miller wrote in
1937 while at the University of
Michigan. He won a his second

The Walgreen Drama Center, which houses the
Theatre.

CAMPUS EVENTS & NOTES

Hopwood Award for the play. Its
plot mirrors the University of
Chicago incident.
In the play, a businessman
promises to give money to a uni-
versity for a construction project.
But he becomes reluctant when
he hears about a radical profes-
sor stirring up labor trouble. The
businessman decides that until
the professor is dismissed, he
won't give any more money to the
university. The university admin-
istration gives in and fire the pro-
fessor.
Walgreen's son, also named
Charles and a University alum,
donated $10 million for the con-
struction of the new facility.

Wildfire danger lurks in Malibu

New troops to deploy by month's end

a

MALIBU, Calif. (AP) - The
blue Pacific lapped at the shore as
Suzanne Somers poked through
charred rubble.
"It was a beautiful house; it was a
beautiful place to live," the actress
told reporters yesterday.
The morning after the brief but
fierce wildfire destroyed or dam-
aged several multimillion-dollar

beach homes was the kind of da
that feeds the desire to live in Mali
bu, despite its long history of devas
tating fires.
"We'll rebuild," Somers pledged
"I reallythinkthatwe'lllearnsome
thing great from this, and what els
can you do with a tragedy but loo
for the opportunity to grow spiritu
ally and emotionally?"

Bush to outline
new Iraq
plan tonight

inniprci u uninn-cz-

ur 11vul wL'y ul iiulzi
almost as Good as

k WASHINGTON (AP) - The
- first of up to 20,000 additional
U.S. troops will move into Iraq by
the end of the month under Presi-
- dent Bush's new war plan, a senior
defense official said yesterday.
Congressional Democrats scram-
bled for the best way to challenge
an increase they said would simply
cause more bloodshed.
Details of a gradual military
buildup emerged a day before
Bush's planned speech to the
nation, in which he is also expect-
ed to propose increased econom-
ic aid to shore up the shattered
country after nearly four years of
bloodshed.

Bush is expected to link the
troop increase to promised steps
by the Iraqi government to build
up its own military, ease the
country's murderous sectarian
tensions, increase reconstruction
and enact a plan to distribute oil
revenues among the country's reli-
gious sects.
The president spent time yes-
terday meeting with lawmakers,
practicing his speech and briefing
key foreign allies, including calls
to the leaders of Britain, Australia
and Denmark.
Under Bush's plan, thousands
of troops will be alerted that they
may be needed in Iraq _ includ-
ing units already there whose
service would be extended, or
others that could be sent earlier
than initially scheduled, said the
official, who requested anonym-
ity because the plans have not yet

been announced.
Moving first into Iraq would be
the 2nd Brigade, 82nd Airborne
Division, which is now in Kuwait
and poised to head quickly into
the country, the defense official
said. The brigade, which num-
bers about 3,500, is based at Fort
Bragg, N.C.
Other units, including Marine
brigades in western Iraq, could
be asked to extend their deploy-
ment. And the military buildup is
also likely to include moving the
aircraft carrier USS John C. Sten-
nis into the Persian Gulf region, as
a show of force and a warning to
Iran and Syria.
There are already about 132,000
U.S. troops in Iraq.
According to the defense offi-
cial, Bush also will discuss the
need to address how often the Pen-
tagon can tap the National Guard

and Reserves, although he may
provide few details. And Bush will
again endorse the need to increase
the size of the Army and Marine
Corps.
The speech looms as a key one
for Bush, who is beginning the
final two years of his presidency
waging a war that has scant public
support and whose own popular-
ity has plummeted as well.
The public has heard several
previous campaigns by Bush to
defend his Iraq policies and show
that he is changing with changing
circumstances, but conditions in
the country have not improved.
Since the war's start in March
2003, there have been at least
seven public relations offensives
by Bush on the war, with some of
these speech series timed to mile-
stone events and others to dips in
polls.
