Actress Says Her Attitude
Dramatic Productions Is
That of Servant.

to

j"I am a servant of the plays I am
playing in-just one of its servant
henchmen, trying to make it live in
the production in a manner worthy
of its greatness." Blanche Yurka,
who wil appear in "Electra," the
play opening'the Dramatic Festival
during the week of May 25 in the
Lydia Mendelssohn theater, has de-
scribed her attitude toward the
drama. Miss Yurka for the last six
years has devoted nerself to great
masterpieces and their production
in New York.
One of the problems she has been
working on is her costume in the
"Electra," which must be ragged
and mean but still express a cer-
tain latent regal quality of the dis-
traught heroine. "My visualization
of the character, Electra," she has
just written Robert Henderson, who

is directing the production, "came
through clearly last night as I sat
listening to the Stawinsky "Oedipus
Rex" at the Metropolitan Opera
House. I suddenly saw that my head
must be covered most of the time-
just a loose dun-colored scarf, a
part of the costume drapery even,
to be thrown off or dropped only in
the excitement of the very final
climax.
"I would like the costume," her
letter continues," of some very in-
expensive and thin material allj
mottled (dyed) in faded greys and
browns with a little purple in it,
too; and washed and made to look
as worn and as old as possible.'
Miss Yurka has played in the
John Barrymore "Hamlet," in the
revival of Ibsen's "The Wild Duck"
with Tom Powers, in "The Lady
From the Sea," "The Vikings," and
"Hedda Gabler," and this past sea-
son in Aristophanes' "Lysistrata.'

the golf classes, "but there is no -
reason why their short game should
not equal and even excell that of
the men. There is a great amount
of promising material among the
women golfers this year and we
ought to have a large number or
very good players before the end of
the season," said Miss McCormack.
Tournament play will be conduct-
ed during regular class hours this
year. There will be no special day
to hold competition but the scores
of the season will be accepted as
tournament scores.
