PLANS DRAMA AID
Pursuant to a motion carried at the
weekly meeting of the Student coun-
cil Thursday night, the committee ap-
pointed by Paul J. Kern, '29, presi-
dent, to draft a resolution anent the
campus dramatic situation reported
yesterday as follows:
"Whereas existing conditions of dra-
matics on this campus warrant some
organizations which will bring unityt
to the entire situation, and,
"Whereas this organization might
be of material aid in securing a Uni-
versity theatre, and,
"Whereas such an organization
would promote more general partici-
pation in dramatic activities,
"Be it resolved that the Student
council heartily endorses any sound
plan for the unification of the abjec-
tives of campus dramatics."
The resolution came as a result ofG
a discussion at Thursday night's meet-t
inj of the counwcill n whichjseveral pro-t
posed schemes for unification of cam-t
pus dramatics were considered. Earlt
E. Fleischman's proposal for a First
Nighter's Club and Kenneth G. Pat-

among the plans considered.
