Play Production Opener
Paint-besmudged overalled women
are now busily mixing colors, daubing
trees and browning doorways for the
forthcoming play "Sundown," which
will be presented by Play Production
of the Speech Department Nov. 4 to
Nov. 7 in their initial performance
of the year.
Under the supervision of Robert
Mellencamp, Art Director, the classes
in stage design which this fall are
composed mostly of women are build-
ing and painting the sets for this play
in the Laboratory Theatre.
Laid in modern times, "Sundown"
consists of three acts. In all of these
a sea row is seen in the back, and
through special lighting effects, a
sunset is spotted in these acts. The
act calling for the greatest ingenu-
ity is the second which depicts the
interior of a barracks. The predomi-
nantly female crew of the stage de-
sign class are now at work with their
paint brushes and hammers to con-
struct the somber details of the set.
All questions are placed with the
equally paint-spattered director Mel-
lencaip who dashes from set to set,
putting in the necessary lines for a
Many of the characters in this play
are attired in present day uniforms.
The Army does not allow identical
uniforms to be worn on the stage,
but Play Production has obtained
theirs from the Hooker-Howe cos-
tumes house whose uniforms come
the nearest to being authentic.
"Sundown" will open at 8:30 p. m.
Wednesday in the Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre. Tickets will go on sale Mon-
day at the bWx office of the theatre
and can be purchased up to the day
of presentation from 10 a. m. to 5

LANSING, Oct. 29 - &P)- Able-
bodied employes of breweries and
drinking houses were urged to actively
join the war effort by Mrs. Dora B.
Whitney of Benton Harbor, state
president of the Women's Christian
Temperance Union, in a speech open-
ing the organization's annual state
Mrs. Whitney declared that .the
"muscle, brains and bodies of employ-
es in the 400,000 places in this nation
where drinks are sold could better
serve their nation in war factories or
if these people volunteered to relieve
the current farm labor shortage."
The Union reelected all its officers.

The student opinion poll-takers of
two University sociology courses re-
vealed yesterday that nearly two-
thirds of the students here think
that the campus is doing too little
for the war effort.
This announcement came after the
tabulation of results obtained in an
opinion poll in which students were
asked: "Are Michigan students do-
ing too much, too little, or the right
amount of war work?" The poll was
conducted by the Sociology 100 and
130 classes under the supervision of
Dr. William Fuson.
Purpose of the poll was to gain
a concensus of student opinion on
seven pertinent questions after al-
most a year of war. According to
the poll, more than ten per cent of
the students in the literary college
and engineering college were ques-
tioned. A total of 463 ballots were
distributed to lit school students,
while. 274 engineers were given an
opportunity to express their opinions
on the questions.
To the question, "What policy
should Selective Service follow in de-
ferring students," students replied
that deferment should only be grant-
ed,to those taking training of mili-
tary value. The vote on this issue
was'66 per cent.
But on the India independence
controversy, the affirmative vote was
decidedly less as 38 per cent of the
A determined student who studied
into the small hours of the morning
yesterday is still being hailed by his
fraternity brothers for frightening
away a burglar and probably saving
all their wallets from deflation.
Robert Smallman, '45, is the hero
of Phi Sigma Kappa. Still studying
long after his fraternity brothers had
gone to bed, Smallman heard the
front door of the fraternity house at
1043 Baldwin open and someone walk
in. Believing it to be a fraternity
brother he shouted a greeting and
upon receiving no reply went down-
stairs armed only with a flashlight
When Smallman came downstairs
the bewildered intruder fled out the
front door. "I don't know who was
more scared, he or I," Smallman told
police. Because it was dark he said
he could not describe the would-be
burglar. Nothing was reported miss-
ing from the house.
White To Discuss
Prof. Leslie White of the anthro-
pology department will speak on the
subject of "Race" at 8 p.m. Wednes-
day in the Michigan Union.
The lecture will be given under the
auspices of the Inter-Racial Associa-
tion, a University-approved organiza-
tion whose aim is to eliminate racial
Prof. White will discuss the popular
misconceptions regarding racial dif-
ferences and then strive to explain
the real causes for prejudice. The
meeting is open to the public.
( Survey To Be Held
students declared themselves in fa-
vor of continuance of a U.S. hands-
The feminine viewpoint on the
Manpower Corps took an almost to-
talitarian stand when 32 per cent of
the girls said that work should' be
compulsory.. Only . 19 'per cent of
both men's groups was in favor of
this view. Only two per cent of the
men in both lit school and engine
school said that the Manpower Corps
should be abolished.
When compared with results taken
in a similar. poll by Dr. Newcomb of
the sociology department last De-
cember, a change of opinion was dis-
covered on the question, "How soont
will the United States win' the war
with Japan?" Last year 60 per cent
believed that victory over Japan
would take much more than a year,
but now that figure has skyrocketed
to 90 per cent. -
The Japanese in America will have
an easy time of it according to the
students interviewed, for it was found
that most favor 'the government's
moderate policy toward American
citizens of Japanese parentage. Only
seven per cent were in favor of in-
ternment during the war and imme-
diate deportation-after the war. But
34 per cent said that they should be
excluded from strategic areas.
In the poll taken last year only
a minority of students favored con-
centrating U.S. war efforts on Japan,
but almost a year later student opin-
ion was 39 per cent strong in favor
of division of effort between Germany
