Covers All Branches
Play Production is a group of
courses, covering all branches of
the practical theatre arts, includ-
ing acting, direction, stage man-
agement and designing of sets.
Productions are part of the la-
boratory work which supplements
regular classes. They are pre-
pared and rehearsed in the lab
theatre in back of the Union.
Besides the six major produc-
tions, five or six laboratory bills
are done. Those in the latter
class offer almost unlimited ex-
perimental possibilities in all the
facets of theatrical work and are
open to the public without admis-
Those plays in the major group
are done with an eye towards
box office appeal. In addition to

for England during the war, the

speare text more closely than any
of the recent stage productions.

England, "Henry V" centers about
the famous Battle of Agincourt,
won by the British against almost

participate in Play Production by
enrolling in the proper courses.
Although Play Production's
main purpose is to train people
for educational jobs, rather than
for legitimate stage careers, sever-
al current stars, among them Ruth
Hussey and Martha Scott, were at
one time students at the Univer-
sity, and received some of their
experience in Play Production.

America Should Not Bar

Can the United States, which
already has stooped to word-
brawling in a gutter of Russia's
own choosing, improve the situa-
tion any by also emulating the
Kremlin's antagonistic policy
toward foreign visitors?
Russia's refusal to admit a
senatorial party has resulted in
demands that the Washington
government retaliate by imposing
restrictions on Russians, over and
above the normal regulation of
entry by avowed Communists. The
army already is restricting Soviet

There are solid arguments in fa-
vor of action against civilians,
aside from the hysteria generated
by Russia's current all-out propa-
ganda against the United States
and its policies. Every Russian
who comes to this country does so
as the agent, in one respect or
another, of the Kremlin. Other-
wise he would not be permitted to
leave his own country, which is
very strict in preventing its na-

cases of real governmental neces-
And you can rest assured that
every so-called legitimate Rus-
sian activity in this country has
its illegitimate counterpart. That
is one of the fixed practices of the
Communist revolutionary. There
are usually undercover men in
New York who wielda strange
power 'even over the Kremlin's
formally designated emissaries.
One of them, for instance, once
cut a Soviet ambassador off short
in the midst of an interview and
took it upon himself to tell re-
porters what the high official
really was intending to say.
Not Too Difficult
But these things are well known
to our security agencies, and they
think they keep sufficient tab to
prevent any real breach of the
country's safety. Since no Rus-
sian would be allowed to come un-
less the Kremlin expected to profit
from it, keeping them within se-
curity limits is not too difficult.
Beyond that, the more they see
the better. More than one of
them has been converted and re-
fused to return to Russia, becom-

The necessities of our struggle
with Russia may one day force
such action in self defense. But
pending a time of such necessity,
it would bring an easy feeling to
many people that there is in it a
violation of civil rights which are
in some ways akin to our own.
