'Remember ThE
Original Them
"Remember the Day," Play Produc-
tion's final presentation of the cur-
rent year, will be a departure from
any of the previous plays done bythe
drama group during 1940-41 both in
theme and in period. The play will
run in the Lydia Mendelssohn Thea-
tre Wednesday through Saturday.
The story deals with a high school
teacher on her first job who comes
to a midwestern town in 1910 from
a New England background. She be-
comes interested in her wrk and in
her pupils, particularly in one excep-
tionally intelligent boy who is the
problem student in her class.
The emotional and psychological
development of the boy under her
guidance, as well as the love story of
the teacher and the high school
coach, form the theme of the come-
dy-drama which achieved success on
Broadway in 1936-37.
When the play was first introduced
to New York, the critics, supposedly
the most hardened of the metropolis'
unsentimental populace, greeted it as
"a most delightful play, a play tender
in feeling" - "a show for any one
with a sense of humanity to take in"
- "an extraordinarily moving and
sensitive drama" - "an appealing
drama, simply and beautifully writ-
ten, and having the compelling power
of interest."
New Yorkers, too, despite their

As Plot Basis
legendary sophistication and world-
weariness, evidently liked the play,
since it ran for over a year on Broad-
way. George M. Cohan wrote a special
foreword, praising the work of Philo
Higley .and Philip Dunning, and in
it touched upon one reason why the
play is a particularly good choice for
presentation at this time.
He said, "Nothing of the wild and
frustrated scene as currently enacted
in America is in this play. Nothing of
the exaggerations of a hapless world;
nothing to make one wish that the
curtain had fallen, and that life was
far too long and much too weary."

Easter is the time picked by the
Union staff to give its traditional an-
nual party for the entire campus,
the "Bunny Hop," which will be held
from 9 p.m. to midnight Saturday.
This is the last fling for the cam-

mission will be the same as usual,
according to Dick Scherling, '42, sd-
cial co-chairman of the Union, who
is in charge of the hop.
The Union is giving as favors to
each couple a large candy Easter
egg, on which will be written the wo-
man's name. In addition to the
large egg, each couple will receive
several smaller eggs, and a rabbit,
(which would have been a live one

original idea. However, the Ann Ar-
bor humane society intervened, 'tis
Bill Sawyer will furnish the music
with his latest selection of spring
rhythms: Gwen Cooper will be the
vocalist with Sawyer's orchestra.
