is always encouraged. Any one of the
children is permitted to make what-
ever he wishes within the limit of
workshop facilities.
For the purpose of maintaining this
workshop, Galens will open its annual
drive to obtain the necessary funds
Friday and Saturday. Proceeds will
go to buy new equipment for the
shop-games, children's books and
toys to help the kids while away their
time during their enforced stay at
the hospital.
Last year Galens walked in thef
snow for two days and raised $1800,
an all-time record. But this year's
campaign seeks to top that mark.
Leaders of the drive, all medical
school seniors, are Robert Murphy,
general chairman, Donald Cooper,
publicity chairnian, William VerHey,
advance sales chairman, and Logan
Hovis, production chairman.
When the buckets take to the cam-
pus walks Friday and Saturday, give
a little to a big cause. "Buy a Galens
tag" and make the kids happy. It
is your support that makes the work-
shop possible..

Will OpenTomorrow
Appearing in Ann Arbor for a sin-
gle performance, "My Sister Eileen,"
a gay farce on New York City's
Greenwich Village, will begin at 8:30
p.m. tomorrow at the Michigan The-
Staged by George S. Kaufman and
based on a series of humorous arti-
cles by Ruth Lindsay in the New
Yorker Magazine, the play has run
for a year on Broadway. The cast
will come to Ann Arbor directly from
a two-week run at the Cass Theatre,
Detroit. '
Principal character is Philip Loeb,
who portrays an aesthetic landlord.
Loeb has been identified with the
stage for many years as both actor
and director. Among recent plays in
which he has appeared were "June
Moon," "Let 'Em Eat Cake," and
"Room Service." He also directe
the Shuberts' production of "Life
Begins at 8:40."
The part of a professional football
player who spends all his time on
the stage clad in shirt and shorts is
played by Guy Robertson, young
stage veteran. His present role is in
sharp contrast to his last one, in
which he played the character of
George in the Chicago version of
Steinbeck's "Of Mice and Men."
