of two love affairs and of Tony

Production of the speech department
from April 12-15 at the Lydia Men-
delssohn Theatre.
Tony, the boisterous son of Mrs.

castle home, and telling them that

which arise from this prank prove
both amusing and embarrassing and
set the pace for Goldsmith's comedy.
Tony has the "strength of a bull,
the appetite of a horse, and spends
his evenings at The Three Pigeons, a
tavern, where he is free to drink,
flirt, and play practical jokes.
"She Stoops To Conquer" is repre-
sentative of Goldsmith's interest in
rural England with its squires, roomy
inns and friendly hospitality.
Tickets will go on sale April 10 at

weapons the leaders of our Armed Forces use to win victory. They use-men-men who speak
different languages, who can question prisoners, get information from natives, read enemy
papers, diaries and documents, interpret in negotiations, understand enemy propaganda
and do a thousand vital services to insure victory.
