Premiere Of Van Sickle's Play
Is Produced By Comedy Clubl

Comedy Club will have the priv-
ilege of presenting Friday and Sat-
urday nights, the first performances
of "Why, Minnie Boggs,' by the actor
and playwright, Raymond Van Sickle.
What is more is that Mr. Van Sickle
himself has come from New York to
direct this first show.
As a playwright, Mr. Van Sickle is
well known for his "The Best Years,"
chosen as one of the ten best plays
of 1932. Through one of those strange
coincidences characteristic of this
world, the playwright himself, playing
cne of the smaller roles in that show,
met Hobert and Hubert Skidmore,
both of whom were interested in dra-
matic work at Ann Arbor, particularly
Comedy Club.
Decided Upon Premiere
Robert Hendefson was presenting
"The Best Years" in Detroit when the
three met. As a result of this, Mr.
Van Sickle sent Hubert Skidmore the
rough draft of "Why, Minnie Boggs"
this summer and the two decided
that Ann Arbor would serve as well
as any of the eastern summer-theatre
towns to present the premiere per-
Mr. Van Sickle, working with the
Comedy Club cast only a week, has
found that its members, because of
their "intelligence" in interpreting
roles, rate very favorably with his
ideas of the parts. "Why, Minnie
Boggs" is a comedy, which according
Musical Play
To Be Givenj
A rendition of Lamar Stringfield's
symphonic legend "John Henry" by
the Congregational Symphony Or-
chestra - the second time this com-
position has ever been presented out-
side of North Carolina - will feature
the musical program to be given in
connection with the regular services
at 7:30 p.m. tonight in the Congre-
gational Church.
The program also will include sev-
eral old Negro spirituals to be sung
by the 32-voice choir of the Bethel
African Methodist Episcopal Church.
The Rev. David Blake, of the Bethel
Church, will conduct the service.
Earl V. Moore, director of the
School of Music, said yesterdvy, "The
legend of John. Henry is a composi-
tion modern in its interpretation, al-
though not too extreme. The music
is colorful in orchestration, well-con-
structed in its effect. A unique op-
portunity is being offered the people
of 'Ann Arbor of 'hearing this sym-
phonic ballad conducted by one who
is so familiar with the Southland,
its legends and folklore."
The 45-piece orchestra is under the
direction of Thor Johnson, Grad,SM,
who was associated with Stringfield
for four years at the University of
North Carolina. The orchestra will
also furnish accompaniment for the
singing of the Negro national hymn
by Steward Cram, '35.,
John Henry is the Negro counter-
part of the famous lumber-camp hero,
Paul Bunyan. The feats of the huge
steel-driver, who weighed 40 pounds
at birth, are depicted in the sym-
phonic legend.
The spirituals to be sung are "I'm
So Glad," "Good News," "No Hiding
Place," "How Do You Feel," and "Look
to the Lamb."

to Mr. Van Sickle, is one of the hard-
est things in the theatrical world to
produce successfully. The Comedy
Club group, because its individual
members seem to fit the personalities
of the people they are playing, have
every chance of putting on a first-
rate performance, he said.
Appeared In 26 Plays
For 17 years, Mr. Van Sickle has
been connected with the stage, in
some manner or other. The major
part of that time was spent as an
actor, appearing in 26 New York pro-
ductions: Five years ago he left New
York and went to Australia, busying
himself there with writing a column
for one of the leading magazines. This
work gave him an idea for a play,
and his first work as a playwright was
begun at that time.
Mr. Van Sickle had just finished
12 months work in Hollywood with
the Fox Film Company before coming
to Ann Arbor. It is his plan to take
"Why, Minnie Boggs" to .New York
in April.
As a member of Robert Hender-
son's dramatic troupe, he came to
Ann Arbor for the first time two
years ago, when he appeared in "An-
other Language." He thinks Ann Ar-
bor is "grand," the Union, "swell," but
that he 'has never seen so many dif-
ferent kinds of weather in any one

cratic citizenship is also a part of the
objectives of education in the State
of Michigan,, despite the enforced
limitations of lack of funds. "This
past year has seen a marked degree
of interest in the introduction of more
effective programs for education for
