De Neerraard Says Present Bad
Plays Cause Revival Of Classics

Lack of good material in recent
plays has resulted in modern pro-
ducers returning to Shakespeare and
classical playwrights in dramatic pro-
grams, Beatrice de Neergaard, lead
in Gordon Daviot's "The Laughing
Woman," declared yesterday.
"The Laughing Woman," featuring
Miss de Neergaard and Tonio Selwart,
will run for five performances at the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre this
week-end, closing with matinee and
night performances Monday.
Lack Of Material Fault
"Many recent plays have been
charged by the public with being
light and over-sophisticated," Miss
de Neergaard, said, "but the real
charge against them should be their
lack of material for good production.
Whether a play is 'light' or not doesn't
matter if it offers opportunity for
ood staging and a good finished pro-
duction. Because modern producers
cannot find the material they want
in some of the newer plays, they have
been turning to Shakespeare and Ib-
sen again."
A 'statement by Mr. Selwart, Aus-
trian actor, last Tuesday, that the
20 Nurses Receive
St. Joseph Dilpomas
Commencement exercises were held
at 8 p.m. yesterday at St. Joseph's
Mercy Hospital school of nursing
with Rev. John B. Lynch, assistant
pastor of St. Thomas Catholic Church
delivering the principal address in
St. Joseph's auditorium.
Twenty nurses received diplomas
last night. Eight of these received
diplomas from St. Joseph's Hospital
school of nursing and 12, from the
Mercy College of Nursing in Detroit,
of which the hospital school of nurs-
ing here is a unit.

American theatre was refreshing and
vital was backed by Miss de Neer-
gaard. "There is much more oppor-
tunity than in Europe," she said,
"to get established. Abroad the au-
diences remain loyal to old favorites
as' long as they are on the stage.
Young people have little chance to
get started and win the public when
everybody is loyal to the old stars."
She pointed out that a well-known
Norwegian actress who was interested
in directing was laughed at in Europe
until she came to Amercia.
The stage is a profession one enters
because it has an all-comprising in-
terest, Miss , de Neergaard stated.
Though it is a profession, most actors
couldn't live with out it, she said.
She herself was directed toward an
architectural career by her parents,
but soon found herself turning to the
stage. Her favorite roles so far have
been Queen Anne with the Dennis
King production of "Richard of Bor-
deaux" and the lead in "Squaring
the Circle." Usually given comedy
roles, she stated, she prefers more
serious dramatic ones.
Born In Denmark
Miss de Neergaard was born in
Denmark, but has done most, of her
professional work in America, in the
Repertory Theatre of her cousin, Evr,
le Gallienne. After three seasons
with the Repertory group she went to
Vienna to study under Dr. Hoch, lead-,
ing stage director for Max Reinhardt.
Among roles she has taken are Elsa in
"Dr. Monica," with Mme. Nazimova,
Queen Ann, and leads in "The Master
Builder," "The Cherry Orchard," and
"The Three Sisters."
Following a season's run in Lon-
don, "The Laughing Woman" is being
produced in Ann Arbor with its star
in New York City, Selwart, in the
role of Henri Gaudier. Miss de Neer-
gaard is taking the role of Sophie
Brzeska. Others in the cast include
John W. Austin, Mary Howes and El-
lis Baker of the New York cast.

tutions of higher learning in the'

stitute ethical and unethical prac-
tices at its 1938 meeting.
