Lederer, Actor And Rancher,
Appears I Behrman Comedy
By BERYL SHOENFIELD
"Always a sucker for atmosphere,"
Francis Lederer, gentleman-farmer
and better known as stage and screen
box office magnet, declared the Mich-
igan campus "perfectly beautiful"-
almost as much so as the mountain-
ous landscape of his own California
home, Canoga Park, near Hollywood.
Lederer, broad-shouldered, heavy-
lidded-and married--is here for the
current Dramatic Season opener, S.
N. Behrman's "No Time for Comedy,"
in which he takes the lead opposite
actress Edith Atwater, of "Man Who
Camee to Dinner" fame.
Revealing that he has enacted over
200 parts in six years, Lederer insists
that he likes to play all types of parts
equally well. -
"I choose a role primarily for a
good play," the Czechoslovakian-born
actortestified, in English influenced
by, foreign travel. "I'd rather play
the worst part in a better play than
the best one in a poorer play."
Having played in Czechoslovakia
Germany, Austria, Africa, France,
England and Hungary, as well as in
the United States, Lederer is in a
position to draw comparisons.
"The American stage is better for
finished productions," he asserted.
"America does much more type cast-
ing; actors are picked who most
cosely resemble the parts, and here
there is a terrific source to draw
In contrast, Lederer explained,
each European theatre has its own
stock group. Basic staff consists of
romantic leading man, character act-
or and comedian. Casting would
necessitate the comedian's taking all

Proud of his 300 acre San Fernan-

He has a tractor. a truck, two sta-

His "fantastic mission-style stable"
is especially dear to him, for he de-

Plan City-Wide Drive
Lutheran congregations of Ann
Arbor are making final plans for
city-wide appeals scheduled for to-
morrow on behalf of the Lutheran
ministry to men in the armed forces.
A single-synod drive will beqcon-
ducted by St. Paul's Lutheran Church
in contrast to the Lutheran World
Action Drive in which United and
American Lutheran Churches will
participate. The goal of the smaller
drive is $500,000, a figure proportion-
ately much higher than that set by
the nation-wide appeal which hopes
to gain $650,000.
The purpose of Lutheran World
Action is essentially the same as that
of the other drive. About 25,000 men
each month visit the 31 Lutheran
Centers established throughout the
country, to attend worship services
and to take advantage of the recre-
ational facilities the Centers have to

Receives Gi f t
A letter giving thanks for a Christ-
mas gift arriving in March (though
mailed from Ann Arbor in October)
was just received by the children of
Bach School, 600 W. Jefferson, from
their "adoptee," 13 year old Mary
G. Arthur, of Wales.
One year ago the Bach School
children, with the fourth grade under
principal Ethel Hedrick taking the
initiative, "adopted" Mary Arthur by
contributing $30 to the American
Save the Children Federation, after
hearing a plea on behalf of the
British war orphans delivered by Mrs.
Preston W. Slosson, who with Mrs.
Edward W. Blakeman, is chairman
of the local SCF group.
Supplemented British Funds
This sum supplemented British
funds in providing food, clothing and
medical care for this child, in her
own home, for a 12 month period.
At the same time teachers of Bach
gave an additional $30 toward the
maintenance of Trevince House, Red-
ruth, Cornwall, known as the Ann
Arbor Shelter since it is supported by
The five-months-late Christmas
parcel for the young Welsh girl con-
tained a coat and dress, a blanket
and sweater for a new baby brother,
hankies, caps and numerous small
gifts. This and the many letters have
been sent through the SCF offices
in New York, collaborating with a sis-
ter branch of the organization in
England, responsible for distributing
the gifts to the "blitz babies."
Three Letters Received
To date, the Bach school children
have received three letters from this
young war evacuee. The latest is a
cheerful message, .describing spring
in England and garden planning, and
is concluded with the familiar Brit-
ish phrase, "We will win the war .. .
Mary Arthur was "adopted" in ac-
cordance with the terms of the "$30
plan" advocated by SCF. A second
adoption procedure is offered by
SCF: payment of $120 will maintain
an "under-five" in a residential nur-
sery home (of which Trevince is
representative) for one year, com-
plete with supervision by trained
nurses and psychologists.
To Ile Lengthened
In line with the University's accel-
erated education program the for-
estry school's summer camp, Camp
Filibert Roth, will this year run from
June 15 to September 26, five weeks
more than in past years.
Located in Iron County in the Up-
per Peninsula within the Ottawa Na-
tional Forest, this camp furnishes
the foresters with the opportunity to
see forestry as practiced by the Uni-
ted States Forest Service and the
Michigan State Conservation Com-
mission. It is also near an area of
logging operations and a number of
wood-using industries, so the camp-
ers can observe many different
phases of forestry work.
Between 35 and 40 students are
expected to enroll this summer for

Philadelphia Orchestra Player
Gained Start WithPIU' Orchestra
When you go to either of the May
Festival concerts today, take a care-
ful look at the slim young man, sec-
ond from the left end, in the horn
section of the Philadelphia Orches-
tra. He may be your old room-mate.
For Ward Fearn, Michigan, '39,
knows how to get to the other side
of Division Street just as well as you
do. To Ward, who played in the
University Symphony Orchestra and
the Little Symphony several years
ago under Thor Johnson, this is
something of a triumphant home-
Success came to him in a surpris-
ing fashion. Soon after graduation,
Ward was in Philadelphia at the
Curtis Institute taking lessons from
the noted horn player of the Phila-
delphia Orchestra, Anton Horner.
"I had an audition with the orches-
tra on a Saturday afternoon," he re-
lates. "At eight o'clock the following.
morning the personnel manager woke
me up and asked me if I wanted a
job and that I had better pack my
bags fast because the orchestra was
leaving that afternoon for a tour+
through the South."
Ward, who is only twenty-three,
joins Willie Gibson, trombonist, as
one of those Michigan alumni play-
ing with the Philadelphia Orchestra.
When he played under Thor John-
son Thursday evening, it was a great
experience for him.
"I played under him two years ago
in the University Orchestra, and it'
was a fine feeling playing for him
Thursday," he declared. "He's an
inspiring leader and musician."
There will be plenty to keep Ward
busy this summer, even though the,
regular concert season is over, as he'll
keep playing" with the orchestra in
its summer "Robin Hood Dell" con-
"But first I'm going home to Ne-
braska for a couple of weeks," he
said, "and see what home is like,"
And when he goes home it's just as
good as taking a tour with the or-
Ward's father, who is something of
an amateur musician, came all the
way from Nebraska to hear the May
Festival concerts. But it's worth ev-
ery bit of it. He comes to Hill Audi-
torium, smiles contentedly, and lis-
tens to his son make "good music."
