Dr. Ralph Perry To Talk

Dr. Ralph Barton Perry, pro-
fessor emeritus of philosophy at
Harvard University, will deliver
the fifth series of William W. Cook
Lectures on American Institutions
from Monday, Nov. 29, through
John Mason
Brown Speaks
Here Friday
Seeing things is John Mason
Brown's specialty.
This fact will be borne out Fri-
day evening when he will present
his running commentary on the
art and theatre world at 8:30 p.m.
in Hill Auditorium.
BROWN HAS been interested in
the theatre ever since he was
"King Lear" at the age of nine.
Even though his father and grand-
father were Yale men, Brown de-
fied family tradition all for the
sake of the stage.
He went instead to Harvard,
worked in the drama workshop,
and after graduating cum laude,
became drama critic of the The-'
atre Arts Monthly.
Later on, he held drama posts
on the New York Evening Post and
the New York World Telegram.
DURING the war, he was in the
Navy and served in the Sicilian
and Normandy invasions.
When the war ended, Brown
became an associate editor of the
Saturday Review of Literature.
In his weekly column "Seeing
Things" Brown dissects the cul-;
tural activities of the day.
Tickets for the lecture will go+
on sale Thursday, at the Hill audi-1
torium box office.t

stage. And the stage is the set
for the Gilbert and Sullivan So-
ciety's upcoming production,
"Yeomen of the Guard."
ARMED WITH hammers, saws,
and paint brushes, the under-.
manned stage committee will at-
tack the tough problem of creat-
an authentic medieval setting on
a modern stage as designed by
Felix Reiss.
When they're done, the stage
will be transformed into' a rep-
lica of the Tower of London, and
its surrounding buildings, com-
plete with the block, where the
fearful Headsman carries on his
gruesome trade.
Included also will be the authen-
tic gloomy interiors of the Tower,
where Colonel Fairfax, Elsie, Jack
Point, and the whole crew of Gil-
bert and Sullivan characters carry
on their merry antics.
But additional handymen with
the hammer and saw are needed
to create this medieval master-
piece in Ann Arbor, so the Society
has asked all those interested to
come to the Ann Arbor Armory,
Fifth and Ann streets, at 8 p.m.
tomorrow to begin building the set.

Iunitz Talks
On Soviet Life
"While Communism is prohib-
itive to a limited degree in the
Russian literature of today, writ-
ers are still mirroring the thoughts
and attitudes of the people to-
ward their government," Dr. Josh-
ua Kunitz said yesterday afternoon
in Kellogg Auditorium.
Speaking on "Russian Litera-
ture: A Reflection of Russian
Life," Dr. Kunitz, noted authority
on Russian literature and culture,
cautioned his audience against
relying too much on writers as
perfect reflections of a country's
"Modern Russian poetry written
by veterans of World War II is
filled with the great faith and
warmth of men who have fought
for an ideal," Dr. Kunitz said.
