Center's Plans
For New Term
To Offer English Classes
To Improve Speech

Several novel features are included
in the International Center's schedule
of activities for this semester, Prof.
J. Raleigh Nelson, director, announced
For the first time the Center will

Julius Caesar' Cast To Wear
Authentic Elizabethan Costumes

Play Production's Version
Of Drama To Be Given
At LydiaMendelssohn
Play Production's Elizabethan ver-
sion of Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar,"
to be given Wednesday, Feb. 21,
through Saturday, Feb. 24, in the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre, will bring
true Elizabethan costume to the stage,
costumer Emma Hirsch explained yes-
Elizabethan costume, she added, is
sophisticated and stiff, with lots of
fluff, but all this is being toned down
and softened for the forthcoming
play. "Julius Caesar," she comment-
ed, presents stark tragedy, to which
puffiness would be detrimental. Along
the same line, decorations and jewels
will be kept at a minimum.
Period costumes were not in use in
Shakespeare's time, Miss Hirsch ex-
plained, so the actors performed in
their own clothing, in true Elizabeth-
an style. By presenting "Julius Caes-
ar" in real Shakespearian style, she
added, Play Production is doing away
with anachronisms so prevalent in
modern versions of the play.
