Celebrated Comedy
By Oliver Goldsmith
Tickets for "She Stoops To Con-
quer," first offering of Play Produc-
tion for the spring term, to be pre-
sented April 12 through 15, will go on
sale April 10 at the box office of the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
One of the more popular eight-
eenth century dramas, "She Stoops
To Conquer" by Oliver Goldsmith is
a comedy of incidents and character.
In contrast to Sheridan, another
well-known playwright of the eight-
eenth century, Goldsmith was inter-
ested in rural England with its
squires, roomy inns and friendly hos-
The mistake which the hero makes
in conftising Squire HArdcastle's
house with an inn, the fact that Mar-
low is more at ease with an innkeep-
er's daughter than with the lady of
fashion, the ruse to which the hero-
ine resorts to win her lover, and the
antics of Tony Lumpkin and his mo-
ther have all provided complications
which prove amusing..
"She Stoops To Conquer" was first
produced at Covent Garden Theatre
in London, 1773. The great success
of the stage play hastened the publi-
cation of the drama in book form.
Recent revivals of the drama repre-
senting the fads, foibles, spites and
petty jealousies have been enjoyed by
present day audiences as much as
they were two centuries ago.
Mail orders for "She Stoops To
Conquer" will be accepted at the Ly-
dia Mendelssohn Theatre before Ap-
ril 10.

WASHINGTON, March 30.-Ac-
knowledging Allied failure at Cas-
sino, War Secretary Stimson said to-
day that "the simple fact is the Ger-
mans stopped us," but he added:
"No one has made this a test of Al-
lied power."
The Secretary devoted part of his
news conference to a discussion of
the efforts to drive the Nazis from
the bomb-rubbled town that strad-
dles the road to Rome. The fighting
has subsided, he said, "without
achieving the results for which we
had hoped.",
He coupled with the statement,
however, his own re-emphasis that
Allied forces already had attained
major objectives in the Italian cam-
paign: knocking Italy out of the war,
capturing her fleet, occupying vital
airports and pinning 19 German div-
isions to the Italian front, thus keep-
ing them out of the Russian fighting.
Stimson said the fierce Nazi resis-
tance at Cassino--still more than
strong enough to fight off the Allies
despite terrific air bombardment of
the fortress town-has shown that
the Germans "are obstinate and ef-
fective soldis who do not quit when
they are or ered to hold a key post
at all cost.'
In a statement covering all thea-
tres of war Stimson said the Army
Air Forces destroyed 9,463 enemy
planes in the air and 1,579 on the
ground last year while losing 2,885
craft. Demonstrating the mounting
crescendo of Allied air power, he said
our forces destroyed twice as many
enemy planes in the last six months
of the year as compared with the
first six months.

A graphic picture of how Univer-
sity facilities and personnel are aid-
ing the war effort was released yes-
The Toledo Shipbuilding Company,
located on the banks of the Maumee
River in Toledo, had just completed
construction of the Coast Guard's
newest Great Lakes ice breaker,
"Mackinac." The company had built
the vessel on ways parallel to its dry-
dock, planning to launch the ship
sidewise. But the dry season had
made the water exceptionally low
and the problem was whether the
boat could be launched safely.
Having been built as a war meas-
ure to open shipping lanes for ore
and grain boats, it was necessary
that the ship be launched by
March 4. Therefore, the builders
called in Lt.-Com. Louis A. Baier,
USNR, head of the naval architec-
ture and marine engineering de-
partment to determine at what
depth the ship could be launched
safely. Lt.-Com. Baier enlisted the
aid of Prof. Russell A. Dodge of
the engineering department who is
prof. Williams
To Speak Ti oday%,
Prof. Mentor Williams of the De-
partment of English will speak on
"Labor in the Post-War World" at
the conclusion of religious services
which take place at 7:45 p.m. today,
at the Hillel Foundation.
Rabbi Jehudah M. Cohen will con-
duct religious services and will be as-
sisted by Elliot Organick, '44E, and
Harvey Weisberg, A/S.
Refreshments will be provided by
two Hillel senior hostesses, Mrs. Rob-
ert Levin and Mrs. Ben Kessel.
The Hillel Fireside Discussion For-
um, at which Prof. Williams will
speak, is in charge of Hannah Katz,
'44, and Joyce Siegan, '46. The so-
cial hour which follows will be super-
vised by Thelma Zeskind, '46.

an expert on dynamics and the
two men began work.
They constructed a seven-foot
model of the boat and dock on a scale
of 1 to 40 and started experimenting
in the naval tank in West Engineer-
ing Building.
The ship itself is about 290 feet
long, 74 and a half feet wide and has
two propellors aft and one forward.
Its bilges are unusually slack for a
lake ship, it has an overhanging bow
to crush the ice, and is built with
unusually heavy frames and plating.
If the badly needed icebreaker
traveled too far when it was
launched it would smash the far
side and be lost to the Great Lakes
for the season. If the boat did not
go far enough, it would damage
the. near side, and, with low water,
would drop so far down that it
might smash the bottom plates
and injure the dock.
Factors which the University men
had to consider in testing their scale
model were the weight of the ship,
its stability and tendency to roll, the
speed with which it would hit the
water and the water level in the dock.
The toughest problem, according to
Lt.-Com. Baier, was to simulate the
velocity at which the ship would
enter the water. The launching ways
themselves are greased, but there is
no lubricant known which would
launch the model at the appropriate
velocity and acceleration.
The two. men finally hit upon
ball bearings as the solution to
their problem. "The only trouble,"
Lt.-Com. Baier said, "was that
every time we launched the model,
we had to fish every one of those
steel balls out of the tank."
For ten days the tests were ,made
and results checked. Finally the
conclusions were sent to Toledo, the
report showing what the icebreaker
would do at different heights of
water and the minimum depth of
water with which the craft could be
safely slid into the water.
The results of the tests were so
accurate, Lt.-Com. Baier said, that
"the ship behaved just as predicted
and was successfully launched with-
out a scratch."
