Lab. Theatret
Will Give Play
The Heavenly Shebeen
Is Tale of Speakeasy
The University laboratory theatre
will present "The Heavenly Shebeen"
by Charles Leavay at 7:30 p. m. to-
morrow in the auditorium of thec
University High School.-
The play is one of a group of playsc
entitled "Plays With a Preface" writI
ten by Mr. Leavay which won the
major drama award of $500 in thes
recent Hopwood contest.t
The cast will include Charles Ben-
jamin as Patrick Brady, Blanche
Holpar as Biddie Brayton, Byront
Mitchell as Billie Scanlon, Robert
Acton as Joe Flaherty, and AnnetteI
Chaikin as the Lonely Ould Maiden.
According to Mr. Davi1 Norton,
in charge of the group, the play is
a type of "tongue in cheek" salty
humor of provincial Ireland, and the
laboratory theater will try to create
an interpretation of Irish people.
He explained that a "shebeen" is an
Irish speakeasy.
The play concerns a father who
dies before he had a chance to make
out his will, and the maneuvering of
his family to make one out after his
The production will be presented
with no scenery, but make-up and
costumes will be used in order to give
the actors an opportunity to adjust
themselves from one thing to an-
Mr. Norton stated that "The play
doesn't disregard the Irishman's love
of good Scotch whiskey," and that
"the author tried to capture the local
color of provincial Ireland." He ad-
ded that the plays presented by the
lab theater are written here and
acted here, and that it is the only
creative theater on campus,

Class on Russiai
To Be Given by
Former Prince
Professor To Teach
In Summer Session
Andre Lebanov, Russian prince in
pre-revolution days, will teach a
course on "Russia Since 1800" dur-
ing the summer session of 1944, ac-
cording to Mr. Albert Hyma of the
history department.
Mr. Lebanov came to America
when conditions made it necessary
for him to leave Russia. For almost
fifteen years he has been a profes-
sor of history at the University of
California at Los Angeles. His clas-
ses have been popular on that cam-
pus, and the Los Angeles newspap-
ers give his lectures write-ups of ap-
When visiting Ann Arbor last year
Professor Pares of the University of
London faculty, and who has been
knighted by the British government,
spoke highly of Mr. Lebanov. The
two professors first met in Russia.
Has Written Books
Mr. Lebanov is the author of two
books about Russia. The first "Rus-
sia and Asia," emphasizes Russia as
a European power. Mr. Lebanov
states that the Russians are of Eu-
ropean origin and that the Russians
even look European, and not Mongo-
lian as do the Chinese.
Tells of Revolution
In his second book, Remeniscences
the author tells the story of the
Russian revolution, as seen through
the eyes of a member of the upper
classes. Mr. Lebanov's father wa
the consul-general of Vladivostok.
Mr. Lebanov wishes to promote co-
operation and understanding be.
tween Russia and America and hi
course in Russian history will b
given for that purpose. Mr. Lebanov
will bring his wife, an American and
a graduate of Stanford University, t
Ann Arbor with him.
Sweater Drive
Lacks Support,
With only twenty-four hours re
maining in the Belgian Sweate
Drive, the campaign has reached onl
one-third of its quota of 1,500 sweat
ers, according to Deb Parry, '45, i
charge of the drive.
The Send Our Sweater Drive wa
organized and issued its S. O. S. fol
lowing the attention brought to bea
on the need for warm clothing of th
people of Belgium by Mme. Bett:
Barzin, who left Belgium shortly be
fore it was occupied by the Nazis.
To reach the goal only one sweate
is needed from each coed on cam
pus. Many have contributed mor
than one, so the campaign obviousl
lacks adequate numerical support, ac
cording to Miss Parry. "We do no
believe it is asking too much of th
majority of campus women to do
nate one sweater to the people o
Belgium," Miss Parry said yesterday
Collection boxes for the sweater
have been provided, and donation
may be made at any time before
p. m. at the League. Each donor i
