FRENCH CLUB COMEDY:
'Les Jours Heureux' To BePresented

Ensian Appointees

By DON KOTITE
"Les Jours Heureux," a three-
act comedy depicting the carefree
nonchalance of modern French
youth, will be presented at 8 p.m.
tomorrow at Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre.
Directed by Prof. Charles Koel-
la of the romance languages de-
partment, Claude-Andre Puget's
lively drama is Le Cercle Francais'
44th annual stage presentation.
IT CONCERNS five youngsters
-three boys and two girls-rang-
ing in age from 16 to 20 years,
whose parents leave them alone
in a country home for 24 hours.
With no parental supervi-

sion, the group acts and reacts
spontaneously in an atmos-
phere of pretense and bicker-
ing.
But with the unforeseen arrival
of a grounded aviator who asks
to spend the day at the house,
the mood shifts rapidly to one of
tension.
THE GIRLS play up to the at-
tractive "white knight," while
both boys show their resentment
against that unwelcome rival.
"Happy Days" will star Owen
Loveless as the pilot; Arthur
Hanson, Jr., as Olivier Laprade;
Judith Raub as Francine Gas-

sin; Ernestine Masters as Mari-
anne Gassin; Warren Bunyan
in the role of Bernard Gassin
and Patricia Sly as Pernette
Laprade.
"A n excellent psychological
study," Prof. Koella commented,
"the comedy is unique in that
there is no lead role-all charac-
ters are of equal importance."
Several high schools and junior
colleges from the area have al-
ready made group reservations,
he added.
Tickets for the performance, at
75 cents, may still be purchased
from 2 to 8 p.m. tomorrow at the
Lydia Mendelssohn box office. ,

Much controversy exists today,
over television's rapid encroach-
ment, not only on radio and the
movies, but also on sports .events,
regular reading habits and-most
important-on education.
And the concern is well-foun-
ded.
For, although the current joke
that television offers "12-year-old
movies for 12-year-olds" is not
3xactly tne, the calibre of tv en-
tertainment does give one. food
for thought. And tv's effect on
the economy, an emphatic shift
from older forms of entertain-
ment, has left the business end
of the communications world in
a turmoil.
Hostelers Will
Meet at Lane
Hall Tonight
The old and universal sport of,
hosteling will be the order of the
day at the local branch meeting
of American Youth Hostels at
8:15 p.m. today at Lane Hall.
The meeting will feature slides,
talks and demonstrations of trips
throughout the United States, Eu-
rope and even local weekend ex-
cursions around Ann Arbor and
lower Michigan.
HOSTELING, travel by bike or
foot, will take place all over the
United States and Europe this
summer in five-to ten-week trips
beginning late in June.
Twenty-seven trips are plan-
ned by the national group, in
addition to many locally-plan-
ned trips.
Many of the hosteling adven-
tures will cost as little as $1.25
a day. Total costs range from $115

IN ONE YEAR the number of
television sponsors skyrocketed
from 680 to 2,316, the percentage
of evening television-watchers
more than doubled.
On the other side of the
fence, adult attendance at mov-
es. dropped 72 percent, chil-
dren's attendance a more hope-
ful 40 percent; sports events
are attended anywhere from
35 to 45 percent less than before
tv's traumatic birth; and radio,
hardest hit, has lost an average
of three hours and 18 minutes
of nightly listening time from
tv owners-leaving them a mere
24 minutes.
Unless something is done about
it, television may have even great-
er effects on its audience-socio-
logically, psychologically, cultur-
ally.
PRESENT TELEVISION broad-
casts give the audience a warped
idea of American life. According to
tv (radio and movies for that
matter) every third person is
either a criminal or a psychotic;
America is a land of riches, and
slums are myths perpetrated to
make Americans realize they nev-
er had it so good.
What is so appalling about
this is the increasing number
of people who are making tele-
vision in the Big Brother of
G e o r g e Orwell's "Nineteen
Eighty-Four."
Statistics show that adults
spend 29.1 percent less time read-
ing books than before the advent
of tv; magazine reading is down
22.6 percent, newspapers 4.7 per-
cent. The same goes for children,
who also show a marked increase
in school absences.
* * *
BUT TELEVISION as it stands
today is a poor substitute for any-
thing.
