Second Play
'Brief Music'
To Be Given

Possible Invasion Routes from Turkey Council Plans


Stockfili Offhers

The second presentation of the
semester by Play Production of the
speech department will be "Brief
Music," by Emmet Lavery, to be giv-I
en at 8:30, Dec. 16-18, in the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre.
First produced under the title
"Lark on the Wing" at the Pasadena
Playhouse in 1936, "Brief Music" is a
comedy of college life. The play fol-
lows seven girls through three years
of college life tracing their college
life and character development.
Among the main characters are
Spiff, the college Amazon, Drizzle, the
frail and intense poet, and Lovey, the
class beauty. The college smoothie
Minnie, Maggie, the leftist and Rosie,
the college oracle, provide much of
the comic appeal in the play. Jinx,
the eternal straggler, adds to the
character contrast with her slow ways
and southern drawl.
Tickets for the three-act comedy
will be placed on sale Monday at the
Lydia Mendelssohn box office. The
box office will be open daily from 10-
11:30 a.m. and from 12:30-5 p.m.
Thursday through Saturday it will
also be open from 7-8:30 p.m.

The organization accused Murray
of insinuating that AYD "represents
an evil influence in the community."
He was also charged of using sensa-

"on the rocks of disunity."

was written in violation of "the ca-
