"In this historic year, more than
ever before, we do well to consider
the character of Thomas Jefferson as
an American citizen of the world.
"As ronister to France, then as
our first Secretary of State and as
our third President, Jefferson was
instrumental in the establishment
of the United States as a vital fac-
tor in international affairs.
"It was he who first sent our navy
into far distant waters to defend our
rights. And the promulgation of the
Monroe doctrine was the logical de-
velopment of Jefferson's far-seeing
foreign policy.

Elaborate Sets
"There are more individual set
dressings in "Uncle Harry" than
there have been in the past plays
presented by Play Production," ac-
cording to Herbert Philippi, of the
speech department under whose dir-
ection the sets were constructed.
Mr. Philippi, who also designed the
sets, ascribes the elaborateness of the
scenes to the fact that the period in
which the story takes place, the
early 1900's, was one of ornate tastes.
Consequently the Quincey living
room, home of Uncle tarry and his
two sisters, has been painstakingly
erected and is complete with knick-
knacks, numerous paintings, and
treasured articles of the two old
