Benes Expected May 12
WASHINGTON, May L.-034)-The
State Dlepartment annouinced" today
that President Eduard Benes of
Czechoslovakia is expected to arrive
in Washington about May 12 to be
a guest of President Roosevelt.
Benes will stay in Washington
about a week and then will visit New
York and Chicago.
It will be a trip "down yonder"
when the Play Production of the
speech department presents "The
Wishful Taw," by Elizabeth Wilson,
Grad., at 8:30 p.m. May 12-15 at the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
"The Wishful Taw" is a new play,
written last fall, with original music,
depicting the life and customs of
the people of the Ozarks. Authentic
portraits, ballads and dances of the
White River country make it a con-
tribution to the phases of this por-
tion of American life.
Familiar Region to Writer
Miss Wilson uses a well-known
story of the region and sets it in the
rich native background with which
she has long been familiar. Miss Wil-
son's home is in Springfield, Mo.,
and she has spent her summers in a
cabin some 17 miles from the resort
district in the Ozarks. During this
time she has gathered material for
"The Wishful Taw" and also for a
series of nine one-act plays which
she is now writing about the Ozarks.
Miss Wilson, after writing the play
and the music, is now busy coaching
the members of the cast in the prop-
er dialect, and said, "The cast is
really doing a fine job of learning
the proper dialect and catching the
highly important spirit of the char-
Theme Is Campfire Tale
"The play is woven around an old
campfire story, the type of tale that
you would spin around an open fire
at night in that friendly country,"
Miss Wilson said in commenting on
The play was written in Prof. K.T.
Rowe's class in playwriting. In
speaking of the play he said, " 'The
Wishful Taw' is of special interest
as an experiment in dramatic mode
which has grown directly out of the
material. Miss Wilson's interest, as
I have understood it, was in the bal-
ladry and other folk music of the
Ozarks as an intimately dramatic
part of the lives of the people.
"She has created a fresh and orig-
inal kind ofs music-drama which in
addition to immediate artistic inter-
est follows in the direction of the
long gradual rise of a national oper-
atic music from native folk-themes."
Tickets will go on sale at the Lydia
Mendelssohn boxoffice May 10 and
mail orders may be received now.
