Address To

Prof. Bennett Weaver of the Eng.
lish department, Prof. Valentin
Windt, director of Play Production
and Dean Alice C. Lloyd, addresse
the final freshman women's orienta
tion period at 5 p.m. yesterday in th
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
Prof. Weaver explained the Avery
Hopwood and Jule Hopwood Awards
as they pertain to the freshmen. H
began his talk by saying, "The Out-
standing thing about the Avery Hop-
wood Awards is their immensity."
Prof. Weaver went on to explair
that the project is divided into three
groups -- the major and minoi
awards, covering writing of drama
essay, fiction and poetry, and th(
freshman awards, covering writing
of essay, fiction and poetry. These
freshman awards are not so large as
the major and minor awards. Prof
Weaver ended by the challenge,
"Come on, get into the freshman
Freshman pramates
The second speaker of the after-
noon, Professor Windt, described the
dramatic possibilities for the fresh-
men women. He explained that a
first semester freshman could not
participate actively in dramatics, but
that much could be gained by observ-
ing. Windt urged that freshmen at-
tend both the amateur and profes-
sional production.- Prof. Windt em-
phasized the possibility of participat-
ing in the more practical side of play
productions, such as selling tickets,
ushering, and attending to stage
properties. /
Dean Lloyd Speaks
Miss Lloyd, the last speaker, cor-
related the first two talks with her
own subject, "Personality." She
brought out that creative writing and
dramatic art are a means of express-
ing personality. She explained many
people make use of inanimate objects
to express their personality.
Miss Lloyd defined culture as an-
other vord for insight and under-
standing. That is, people must un-
derstand themselves as well as other
people. This can be attained through-
out the four years' experience in col-
lege. "Since we neither fear nor hate
what we thoroughly understand, an
understanding is the greatest weapon
we can have to meet life," according
to the dean.
The speakers were introduced by
Margaret Hiscock, '36, Chairman of
Women's Orientation Period.

Characters 1
Although written in the seven-
teenth c e n t u r y Shakespere's
"Twelfth Night," will be presented
Nov. 13-16 by Play Production, dis-
plays characters which are especially
suited to modern times according tc;
Valentine B. Windt, director of Play
Production in a recent interview.
Viola, the heroine of the play, in
particular is a favorite type among
people today, Mr. Windt believes. She
is an energetic and daring young
woman who doesn't hesitate to don
male attire to help her out of a
difficult situation. She displays the
courage to meet hardships and to
face discomforts with a sense of hu-
mor. Viola-is definitely feminine but
not the clinging vine type.
Comedy Heroine
She is independent, intelligent and
fun loving, and, according to Mr.
Windt, "One of the most delightful
of comedy heroines, and as a type of
woman, one that would be popular-
on campus today."
The sophisticated woman, a direct
opposite to Viola, is seen in the
character of Olivia. The early death
of her parents and relatives leaving
her in control of a large estate de-
veloped a certain ,dignity and poise
in Olivia. 1\r. Windt stated emphat-
ically that she is really very young
i and "contrary to frequent interpre-
tations, she must be played with a
youthful spirit." Although she is
not endowed with Viola's vivid sense
of humor, she participates whole-
heartedly in the frequent mirth
around her and is quick at repartee.
D lightful Situations
"The trials and dilemmas of the
two young ladies are delightful in
situations between wmen in the
whole field of drama," Mr. Windt
In direct contrast to the characters
of these two wcmen are a horde of ro-
bust comic types of vigorous humor.
Reception Is Held
By Langaoe Club
The first meeting of the Romance
Language Journal Club which took
place in the Alumni Room of the
League at 8:30 p.m. Tuesday was the
occasion of the annual reception of
the department honoring its grad-
uate students, faculty members and
their wives.
The program consisted of informal
talks by Vincent Scanio, instructor
in Italian, relating some of his ex-
periences in Paris last summer.
Francis Gravit, instructor of French,
who spent last year in France as
the recipient of a fellowship of the
American field service, chose as his
subject "Adventures in Provincial
Libraries." The address of welcome
was delivered by Professor Hugo E.
The meetings of the Journal Club,
which are held monthly, will be in
charge of Charles Koella instructor
in French, who is chairman.
President Robert Speer, Leland
Hall, Robert Kunitz, Charles Emling,
and Daniel Webster, members of Phi
Epsilon Kappa, honorary physical
education fraternity, attended a for-
mal initiation recently at the Detroit
Social Turnverein, sponsored by the
Detroit Alumni Caper.

Modern society
Mr. Windt continued, "Although
there are many of these comic roles,
Shakespeare gives definite charac-
terization to each with no duplica-
tions." The stupid, vainglorious and
proud Aguecheek is nicely contrasted
by the more robust and mellow Sir
The clown, one of the most inter-
esting of all-fools, is endowed with in-
telligence and ability to entertain
those around him. Fabian and Maria
likewise havea great capacity to en-
joy fun. Contrasted to them is the
serious Malvolio, whose absolute lack
of sense of humor brings him into
some very ridiculous situations.
"All of the characters of "Twelfth
Night" combine to create most rol-
lick situations and extravagant fool-
ery" according to Mr. Windt.
