Puget's Psychological Play
Will Be resentat1011
Of Le Cercle Francais
"Happy Days," the psychological
comedy of Claude-Andre Puget which
attained great success in Paris last
year has been chosen as the annual
French play of Le Cercle Francais,
Prof. Rene Talaman of the romance
languages department as adviser of
the club announced here yesterday.
Acclaimed for its freshness and
spontaneity "Les Jours Heureux" por-
trays modern French society and
youth. The setting laid in the pic-
turesque French countryside around
Poitou forms the background for the
youthful characters of the young
writer who are enjoying their vaca-
Unusual for its young characters,
none of whom are more than thirty
years old, the play is well-adapted for
production here, Professor Talamon
pointed out. The two sisters and
brother of the Gassin family, their
two cousins, and Michel Bouillet are
the six characters involved in the
story of young love.
The author, under the influence
of Jules Romain, modern French
philosophic dramatist, has produced
several other noted plays among them
"La Ligne de Coeur," and "Valentin
le desosse." With the aid of Ro-
main he has also published several
volumes of poetry, some showing the
influence of early surrealism. His
adaption of Noel Coward's "Private
Lives" to the French stage was the
beginning of his later success.
The cast for the play to be pro-
duced May 3 will be announced later,
Professor Talamon said. Casting un-
der Professor Koella, Professor Tala-
mon and Mr. James O'Neill will be
made in the near future on the basis
of the conducted tryouts.

ures indicate that approximately 30
students meet in this laboratory at
one time, lighting and ventilation
being poor. The other room in the
basement is used occasionally as a
classroom and seats 100 students,
the figures indicate.
There are only four regular class
rooms available in Tappan Hall, ac-
cording to the figures, seating a total
of 198 students. One class of 30 stu-
dents meets in Angell Hall. Statistics
show that the number of students
enrolled in the School has grown
so much that every one of the rooms
is nearly always filled to capacity.
In addition, there is no place in
Tappan Hall where all the students
of the School can be assembled at
one time. The junior and senior
classes alone cannot be called to-
gether in any one room.
The figures show that the need in
the School is not for increased size
of class rooms as much as for an
increase in the number of rooms
available. This would permit all the
classes of the School to meet in
their own building and not leave
basement rooms empty.
