ay Comedy "LifeWith Father'
To Run Here Monday, Tuesday

I

New York in the gas-lit Eighties, as
seen through the eyes of a typical
conservative family of the period,,
furnishes the background for "Life
With Father," appearing in Ann Ar-
bor Monday and Tuesday evenings at
the Michigan Theatre.
The hilarious comedy, based on the
reminiscings of the late Clarence Day
and adapted for the stage by Howardl
Lindsay and Russel Crouse, has been
termed the funniest play of the past
decade.
Percy Waram and Margalo Gill-
more, well-known Broadway per-
formers, will take the leading roles
in the production, now engaged in a
nationwide tour.:
The spirit of good faith that has
marked the dealings between the
principals involved in its production
is" illustrated by the fact that no
signed contract or agreement has
existed between the co-authors, pro-
ducer- Oscar Serlin and Mrs. Clar-
ence Day, who represented the inter-
ests of the living members of the Day
family during nearly three years of
preparation before the actual staging
of the play.
All realized the delicate task they
were undertaking. Few writers could
have taken the material in the Clar-
ence Day books on Father and re-
tained the fun pnd respect that Clar-
ence felt toward his parent. And few
family representatives could have
been so tolerant of a plan to put their
relatives on the stage in highly comic
situations without an undue amount
of censorship.
Father has captured the hearts of
all who have heard his genial laugh-
ter, or exasperated roars. The man
himself, one-time governor of the

By HOMER SWANDER
Class of '45-where are your man-'
ners? Don't you know it isn't nice to
be impolite to your seniors, those high
and mighty sophomores?
They don't appreciate at all the
names you call them or the things
you say about them in those confid-
rant letters-to-the-editor you have
been sending in to The Daily.
In fact, they don't like it at all.
And they claim that your confidence,
is entirely unfounded, that "you had
better retreat before-the terrific soph-
omore onslaught" r you will receive
the "beating of your lives" in the
Class Games to be held Saturday,I
Nov. 29. in the Intramural SportsI
Building.I
The Class of '44 says that you frosh
won't have a chance in the mass tug-
of-war, that you will look sick in the
giant volley ball game and that the
relays, the Chinese soccer, the mass
water polo will all be push-overs. As
for the game called grave-yard-well,
v'hat does it sound like?
The games this year have taken on
a more official atmosphere, as there
will be regular referees, a point sys-
tem has been worked out and one of

the classes will'definitely be crownedl
the "winnah."
Earl Riski, intramural director, is
to be the official umpire and scorer.
,He will be assisted by the I-M staff of
referees. It will be their job to see
that everything goes well and--in de-
ference to the usually out-numbered
sophomores--make sure that there
are an equal number of men on each
side at all times.
