Music for Production
Of 'Comedy of Errors'
For the first time in the history
of campus dramatics a harp ensemble
will provide the accompanying music
for a presentation by Play Production
of the speech department.
"The Comedy of Errors," which
will be given at 8:30 p.m. Feb. 9
through 12, and at 2:30 p.m. Feb. 12,
in the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre,
will have as an added highlight an
ensemble of six harpists under the
direction of Lynn Palmer, noted harp-
ist of the School of Music.
Music Students Play
Playing with Mrs. Palmer will be
Elizabeth Masters, Esther Morgan
Trudi 'Peck, Margaret Wardle, and
Virgina Werner, all of the music
school. Charlotte McMullen will be
vocalist, appearing in short solos
throughout the play.
As an overture the ensemble will
play Mozart's "Sonata in C Ma-
jor," and "Sonatina" by Clementi.
Throughout the play, to accompany
the comical confusion of the twins,
Mrs. Palmer will improvise for inci-
dental music. The arrangement of
the music for the overture was also
transcribed for harp by Mrs. Palmer
who came to Ann Arbor last year.
Five Harps To Be Used
Of the harps that will be used
three belong to the music school, one
to Trudi Peck and one to Mrs. Pal-
mer. This will be the first appear-
ance of the harp ensemble this year.
Tickets Will be placed on sale Mon-

"I had a feeling in China that there
was a need for me. China is wel-
coming this kind of inter-relations
and friendship."
In an interview later he said, "We
really didn't know what was happen-
ing to the prisoners of war. But in
our camp the man in charge seemed
to take the attitude that whatever
could be done for us should be done."
He then talked a bit about life in
the camp. Camp life wasn't really
organized for two months, because
during those first few months they
thought the internment was only
temporary. He said he never did find
out why he was in that camp; "I was
never granted an investigation."
But when they realized the intern-
ment was not temporary they organ-
ized the camp life, he said. "We or-
ganized educational, sports, and re-
ligious activities. We taught all kinds
of courses - shorthand, languages,
and even a course in how to play

has united China as never before."

Edibor's"note: This is the (nurt in a
series of five articles on the experiences
of Sgt. Boris Yankoff of Company A.
"Col. Gene Dalton with whom I
fought at Guadalcanal was one of
the greatest men I have ever known,"
Russian-born Sgt. Boris Yankoff of
Co. A said.
"Once when he had an appendici-
tis operation, he put a patch on and
went up to the front line the same
day," he said.
"He always led his men to the spot
where the enemy was and never
walked behind anyone else. He used
to say, 'Come on boys, I think they're
over here. Follow me and I'll show
you where I mean.' Then he would
go rightdinto the thick of danger.
Expected a Lot from His Men
"All the men liked and respected
him because of his bravery. He was
a strict disciplinarian and expected
a lot from us, but he would never ask
us to do anything he wouldn't do
himself," Sgt. Yankoff added..
"Lt.-Col. D. W. Johnston, whom
I fought with at Vella-Levela, was
another good man. In the fight for
this island, we captured a lot of
Japs. Col. Johnston stood and guard-
ed the prisoners himself, despite the
fact that bombs were being dropped
and bullets were flying all around
Encounters Crocodiles
"Of ten as we crossed swamps, and
rivers at Vella-Levela and Guadal-
canal, we would meet crocodiles. We
threw hand grenades into their
mouths when they opened them up.

were four or five feet long and many
of these were dangerous." he said.
"Our worst enemies on the islands
were malaria and the mosquitoes.
Almost all the men had malaria at
least once. After a person has it five
times, he is sent back to the states.
"Once when I was walking on the
islands with a bunch of buddies, we
met a Jap sergeant and two privates.
They all had their rifles on their
shoulders. We were in the hills when
the two parties met and had suri-
prised the Japs.
Confuses Jap
"I aimed at the sergeant, and took
off the safety. The Japs heard the
click and thought that my rifle had
failed to fire. The sergeant gave ne
a sarcastic grin and started leisurely
to take the rifle off his shoulder. "In
the meantime I shot at him and my
buddies got the two privates. The
Jap privates hadn't even taken their
rifles off their shoulders. They were
going to give their sergeant the
pleasure of killing me," he said.
"The natives were a lot of help to
us. They proved to be invaluable
scouts in helping uis to become ac-
quainted with the jungle.
Air Raids Come Often
He explained that air raids came
quite often on some of the islands.
At Fort Vella-Levela they had 448
raids in 35 days.
Once when Sgt. Yankoff was
standing in the jungle, he hollered
to another sergeant who had his
back turned. He saw this sergeant
turn around, aim in his direction and
fire. He thought maybe the sergeant
had gone crazy and was shooting at
him. Then he looked on the ground
and saw a Jap sniper. This sniper
had been on the other side of a tree
not two feet away from Sgt. Yankoff
and if the other sergeant hadn't
turned around just then he would
have shot Sgt. Yankoff in the back.
