rus Girls' Try Out for 'Lace It Up'

By PAUL BIENTLINGER
"Swing your arms - left and

Husky men clad in GI shoes, T-
Airts and other appropriate garb
llowed these instructions yester-
y as tryouts for the 1950 Union
pera proceeded in full swing.
ALL THE ATMOSPHERE of
sting for a top-flight Broadway
usical production pervaded the
nfines of Rm. 3G in the Union,
; New York director William Hol-
ook put the lads through their
eliminary paces.
The men appeared in groups
f six or seven, and attempted
o execute the simple dance
teps which Holbrook demon-
trated for them.
A pianist banged out rhythmi-
1 tunes on a nearby piano, and
e lads were soon shuffling over
e floor.
EACH GROUP was required to
ecute about four simple dance
utines. Some appeared very
nple, requiring a minimum of
ordination and rhythm sense
ille others - at first glance -
>ked pretty complicated.
Strangely enough, the fledgling
horus girls" did as well on what
oked like difficult steps as they
i on the simple ones.
One of the steps involved
utting one foot in front of the
ther, then withdrawing it. It

opposed to be walking without

your arms."

For Solanthe'
If you like to sing, dance, tell
jokes, pound nails or slosh paint,
the University's Gilbert and Sull-
ivan Society can probably use you
in its forthcoming production of
T olanthe."
A. meeting for all persons in-
terested in work on any phase
of the production will be held
at 7:15 p.m. today in Rm. C,
Haven Hall.
A big, booming baritone is need-
ed for the show's leading role, that
of Iolanthe's son. Feminine sing-
ers are greatly in demand, too, ac-
cording to Dick Weber, '52E, So-
ciety president.
"Iolanthe" will also require the
services of a huge mixed chorus,
,mne thirty musicians and inntu-
merable ticket ta ers and ushers,
tied and hound him!

By FLOYD THOMAS
"Washington reporters have to
dig for the news," Paul Shinkman,
'20, told journalism students yes-
terday, "it isn't served to us on a
silver platter."
Delivering a University Lecture
in Journalism Shinkman, news di-
rector of WBBC, Washington, at-
tacked the popular conception of
the "arm-chair correspondents"
of the nation's capital.
A JOURNALISM department
graduate, he has reported for the
Chicago Tribune and Internation-
al News Service and currently pre-
sents a daily news broadcast in
Washington.
Shinkman described reporting
in Washington as "grueling and
unromantic." He criticized the
"well-informed sources" story as
,unreliable.
The main sources of Washing-
ton news are Capitol hill, the State
and Defense departments and the
White House, according to Shink-
man.
Turning to the Communist
problem, Shinkman commented,
"I think news writers should
follow an informed, rational and
calm course between the witch
hunt and smug indifference to
the infiltration of Soviet doc-
trine."
Shinkman quoted a high State
Department official as saying the
Iron Curtain will never drop over
China because of the people's in-
stinct of nationality, and that the
Chinese Communist government is
orderly and its troops well disci-
plined.
