Saroyan Play
To Start New
IDrama Seasont
William Saroyan's "Jim Dandy,"
first production of the 1941-42 season
will be presented by Play Production
of the Department of Speech Novem-
her 5, 6, 7, and 8 in the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre. Valentine B.
Windt, Director, announced yester-
Drama, music and dancing are
combined in the typical Saroyan
manner in this latest work of the
Pulitzer Prize winner. The scene of
the play, which was released to Play
Production through a special ar-
rangement with the National Theatre
Conference, is laid in a public library
-without walls.
Descrpitions of two characters suf-
fice to show the rollioking quality
of the play. One man is supposed to
have one foot in the gtave; conse-
quently he walks around with a small
coffin on that foot. An old woman
in the library walks through a re-
volving door only to dance back into
the library as a youpg and beautiful
Because of the early date on which
"Jim Dandy" will be released, Play
Production will probablyhbe among
the first members of the National
Theatre Conference to do the play.
The theatre group is an organization
of about 50 of the leading University
and Community Theatres of the
country. For a number of years they
have been trying to get a leading
playwright to release a new play to
them prior to its opening on Broad-
Both Paul Green and Saroyan
agreed to the plan, but the latter was
the first one to complete a play. The
program is a novel -experiment, for
it means that 50 little theatre organ-
izations all over the country will re-
lease "Jin Dandy" during the month
of November. Saroyan has shown
great interest in the project, even
'ffering to send records of the type
^f music that should be used to the
different groups throughout the
Other works of the much-discussed
playwright - novelist include "My
Heart's in the Highlands," "The
Beautiful People" and "Time of Your
Life" which won both the Critic's
Award and the Pulitzer Prize as the
best pay of 19 9-40.

WITH HAND WEAVERS at a premium, how,
did Varsity-Toivin get their hands on these
Hand-Woven Shetlands? Well, we don't
know, and we don't care, as long as we
have the Shetlands ,We do know that they
were painstakingly and magnificently
loomed by old world craftsmen . . . no
other method would give them their lux-

texture. They're simply beautiful. . .
unusual in color and pattern design.
They've been modeled in "Dartmouth,"
and they're.guaranteed to be the fabric
"find" of '41.
