In this work of Play Production and
the School of Music, a new angle of
the combination of dance, drama and
music will be brought out. The success
of the Gilbert and Sullivan shows pre-
sented the two previous semesters
have brought about a desire to con-
tinue this form of show and to present
it from a new angle.
The choregraphic work of the per-

Art, according to Prof. Avard Fair-
banks of the fine arts department,
who spoke Sunday on "Religion and
Sculpture" is intimately associated
with religious conceptions, both hav-
ing truth as their ideal pinnacle of
.vt >'attainment.
The ages past produced many great
works of art because there was an
r incentive, and on the other hand,
Professor Fairbanks stated, it was a
deep belief in a principle which made
and still makes for expression in art.
There can be no great art without
this deep belief in an ideal.
"Why do we enter the sphere of
religion? Because there are certain
qualities in the human mind which
impel it. Why will artists starve or suf-
fer to produce art?" It is for the same
reason, Professor Fairbanks declared.
Use Permanent Material
"The arts endeavor to bring spir-
ituality into material form," he stated.
They are a link between the material
and the spiritual. Bronze and stone
are dealt with most in sculpture be-
cause they have been found to be most
