Three Plays Will Be Presented
By Drama Classes Tomorrow

Students of Play Production classes
will present three plays at 3 p.m. to-"
morrow in their first showing this
semester outside of the regular Play
Production season.
The plays will be enacted in the
Laboratory Theatre with the purpose
of giving an opportunity to appear to
those students who have not partici-
pated in the regular season.
"To Each His Own," a one-act
comedy written by William Altman,
'42, for Prof. Kenneth T. Rowe's
Playwriting Class, will be the feature
of the program. Altman is a student
in the advanced Play Production
class.
The first acts of "The Silver Cord"
and Owen Davis' "Icebound" will also
be given.
The plays will be presented en-
tirely through the work of students
except for the directing which has
been done by Hugh Norton. Robert
Mellencamp's classes have been con-
structing the scenery for them.
In order to keep the atmosphere of
the entire performance as informal
as possible one student will introduce
the plays as the actors stroll on
stage. This will also eliminate the
necessity of using the musty red vel-
vet curtain which still hangs above
the stage inĀ« testimony to its one-
time magnificence.
"To Each His Own" has three
characters. Ed, the actor, will be
played by Harvey Willens, '41; Nicki,
his wife, by Gloria Nishon, '43, and
Tom Reynolds, the doctor, by Marvin
Levey, '43.
The cast of "The Silver Cord" will

include George Shepard, '41, Neil
Smith, '41Ed, Kay Gladding, '42,
Carole Freeman, '42, Claire Cook, '41,
and Betty Wooster, '43.
Merle Webb, '42, Gail Parsons, '42,
Betty Whitely, '42, Helen Rhodes,
'42, Annette Lamble, '43SM, Fred
McOmber, '42, Jim Bob Stephenson,
'43, Jeff Solomon, '43, Bill Stegath,
'42, Jane Criswell, '42, and Betty
Wooster will take parts in "Ice-
bound."
Interested spectators are welcomed
as long as there are available seats.
No admission will be charged.
Naval Officer To Talk
To Reserve Applicants
"Aircraft Power Plants" will be dis-
cussed by Comdr. John E. Pixton,
U.S.N., in a talk at 7 p.m. today in
Room 348, West Engineering Build-
ing to applicants for commissions in
the Naval Reserve.
Commander Pixton, of the Naval
Aircraft Factory at Philadelphia, Pa.,
'is also scheduled to address a meet-
ing of Aeronautical and Aero-Mech-
anical Engineers this morning.
Commander Pixton's talk this eve-
ning is one of a series of lectures de-
signed to acquaint applicants for a
commission in the Naval Reserve with
various phases of the service. Other
visiting speakers have appeared in the
series, inaugurated last March by
Capt. Lyal A. Davidson, U.S.N., of the
University's NROTC unit.

New Gargoyle
To Go On Sale
Here Thursday
Miscellaneous Knowledge,
Rat Psychology Article
To Highlight_'Life' Issue
What is the next easiest method of
going mad? Does President Ruthven
drink coffee at night? How many
arms are they putting on statues these
days?
Answers to the above are available
in the new issue of Gargoyle, cam-
pus monthly, to break on Thursday.
Information relative to the first
can be found in the feature on Prof.
Norman R. F. Maier's rat fixation ex-
periments for the Department of Psy-
chology, which are already familiar to
students of psychology 42. Gargoyle
has caught the most ir-rat-ional poses
of Professor Maier's little animals
for all the' campus to observe, and
profit by.
It won't be necessary this time to
send in a box top to get a full page,
suitable-for-framing close-up of
President Alexander G. Ruthven.
Gargoyle has done away with this
bother by offering the picture, togeth-
er with others showing the intimate
life of the University's administrative
head, as only one of the features of
their June issue.
Answering questions on contemp-
orary sculpture, Gagoyle has also in-
cluded photographs of work done by
students of Prof. Avard Fairbanks of
the Institute of Fine Arts, now being
exhibited in the Conference of the
League.
But still that isn't all. More than
150 pictures have been taken for this
LIFE issue, of, Gargoyle, and students
have only to purchase the magazine
for 15 cents on Thursday to obtain
all this.
