wants to take that much time."
Vanderwerp said he saw little like-

To Give 'Skin
Of Our Teeth'
Play Relates Hilarious
Antics of Optimistic
Thornton Wilder turns handsprings,
through human history in "The Skin
of Our Teeth" which will be present-
ed by Play Production of the Depart-
ment of Speech Wednesday through
Saturday, Feb. 7-10 in the Lydia Men-
A Comedy' About Man
In this play, Wilder relates the hi-
story of mankind in the terms of
Olsen and Johnson. "The Skin of
Our Teeth" is a comedy about George
Antrobus, his wife and two children
and their general utility maid, Sa-;
bina, all of Excelsior, N. J.
Mr. Antrobus, supposedly the aver-
age American, has brought the mem-
bers of his family through fire, flood,
pestilenge, the seventeen-year lo-
custs, the ice age, a dozen wars and
as many depressions by the skin of
their respective teeth. After all their
misfortunes, however, the Antrobus
family are still optimistic about the
future, and the play is interpreted as
a rebuke from Wilder to our conten-
porary prophets of doom.-
Players Step Out of Character
Wilder's story of man's constant
struggle for survival is presented with
pathos and broad comedy. He does
not believe in separating his actors
from his audience; his players now
and then step out of their characters
to discuss the progress of the play
or to comment on what it means or
what it does not mean.
Tickets for the play will be placed
on sale at the theatre box office Mon-
day. Mail orders are being accepted

Ruth Draper will present a program
of character sketches Tuesday at 8:30
p. in. in Hill Auditorium under the
auspices of the Michigan Oratorical
Of a repertoire of over a hundred
characters, including more than two
dozen sketches which she has writ-
ten herself, Miss Draper will do eight
or ten different personalities.
20 Years Experience
Although she has been entertaining
audiences with the dramatic mono-
logue for over 20 years, Miss Draper
has made only three radio appear-
ances. Two of these were benefit
performances, while the other was an
accident. Her program was the first
airways theatre presentation to orig-
inate from the Fiji Islands. In Suva,
prominent port in the archipeligo, she
was entertaining a shipboard audi-
ence with one of her sketches when a
steamer from New Zealand stopped
nearby and turned on a microphone.
Unknown to Miss Draper, her sketch
was heard on every ship in the Paci-
fic, from Tahiti to New Guinea.
Miss Draper completely memorizes
all of her many character interpreta-
tions and works on them for years
in order to attain perfection and live
up to her title of "mistress of the
monologue." During an evening's
performance, she occupies the stage
for two and a half hours, allowing
herself only minute intermissions.
Her Ann Arbor presentation is part
of a coast-to-coast tour.
To Be Topic of

turer, will make his second appear-

King has just completed a series
of lectures in the east and south, in
which he presented the critical issues
of racial misunderstanding.
He is at present a resident teacher
at the Baha'i School at Louhelen near
Davison, Mich. Following his appear-
ance here, he will leave for a lecture
tour of the west coast.
This is one of the current Baha'i
Lecture Series to which the public is
cordially invited to attend.
