Play Writing
Very Difficult,
Brumm Admits
His Play Will Be Give
Before Annual Meeting
Of Press Club
According to Prof. John L. Brumm'
writing a play suitable for presenta-
tion to the University Press Club of
Michigan is no easy job., And Profes-
sor Brumm, more than any other
man, should know the difficulties
present in the writing of a play ap-
propriate for the convention's meet-
ing this week-end, as "Editors Are
Also People" is the fourth he has
written for Press Club meetings. It
will be presented Friday night.
"Thus far," he reviewed the history
of the situation, "the plays have dealt
with the foibles and eccentricities of
journalists and professors." The first
of the group, "Scrambled Ego," dealt
with soul-complexers and impulse
followers in control of a campus. "The
Mayor's Husband," which followed,
took up the situation of the highly-
cultivated society woman in politics.,
"'Why Print That," given last year,
was a discussion of what might hap-
pen if a newspaper decided to print
nothing but honest advertising.
Fourth Playing
The fourth and latest play, to be
produced by Comedy Club, again takes
journalism for its field. It concerns
a weekly newspaper in a resort com-
munity of 10,000, which is taken over:
by the community to be operated as a
civic enterprise.-
In the ensuing action 21 different1
characters come in contact with each
other in the management of the
paper. Among them are such per-
sonalities as school teachers, printers,
Communist laborites, capitalists, ac-
tresses, parsons, and members of the
Nelson In Lead
The leads are played by Carl Nel-t

EKelyn Maloy, as "Pretty" Sweet, hisv

the school board. In supporting rolesY

Prof. Allen Speaks
To Forestry Group
Prof. Shirley W. Allen of the School
of Forestry anti Conservation, who
served as an emergency conservation
work inspector in the Pacific Coast
National Parks last summer, said in
speaking before tne Forestry Club,
that success in protecting forests in
the parks from fire, insects, and dis-
ease determines their attractiveness.
Professor Allen went on to state
that foresters are making real contri-
butions to park management as nat-
uralists who can interpret forests
sympathetically to visitors and as
planners and executives in fire and
control work.
Professor Allen listed as the attri-
butes foresters need develop for park
work, patience, courtesy, and show-
manship. "The parks," he said, "are
a real place for men with the right
flair and viewpoint,"
of discussions that will deal with the
problems confronting the delegates.
At the meeting Saturday morning
Prof. Robert C. Angell of the sociology
department will be present.
Those attending the conference will
attend the Michigan-Wisconsin game,
the Board In Control of Athletics
having granted the delegates a spe-
cial rate.
The conference will close Sunday
morning with a discussion group led
by Dr. Edward Blakeman.
