NO STRINGS ATTACHED:
New Group Seeks 'Puppet Regime'

By JANET WATTS
Jerry Witt, '51, has his way,

If

he'll set up a puppet regime with
no strings attached in the Uni-
versity.
But Witt isn't advocating a rev-
olution. Instead, he wants to or-
ganize a working group to make
Continuous from 1:30 P.M.
TODAY and THURS.!

puppets, write skits and help pro-
:uce shows.
* * *
"THE PLAN IS designed for en-
joyment since puppetry is an ex-
cellent means for self expression.
People interested in clay modelling
or writing may find self release
in working with this group," he
said.
And Witt should know what
he is talking about, for he has
been making puppets since he
was 14 years old. For several
years in his boyhood he partici-
pated in a neighborhood puppet
group in the East Bronx.'
His interest in puppetry reap-
peared this summer when he
helped put on shows to demon-
strate principles of group dy-
namics at a Lisle Fellowship group
in Howell, Michigan.
PUPPETRY IS A fine way to
illustrate such principles, accord-
ing to Witt.
"Puppets with exaggerated
features are the best way to
carry out parodies of such things
as politics. In this respect pup-
pets are better than marionettes
Spanish American
Book on Display
An exhibit of Libro Hispan-
americano - Spanish American
Book will go on display at 7:30
p.m. today in the West Gallery of
the Rackham Building.
Sponsored by Phi Iota Alpha,
Latin American fraternity, the ex-
hibit, which commemorates Co-
lumbus day, will be the spring-
board for discussions of Spanish
America literature by a group of
faculty members of the Romance
Language Department from 7:30
to 9 p.m. every night this week at
the West Gallery.

which are mere imitations of
life. Puppets have a life of their
own," he pointed out.
Making puppets doesn't require
much skill, he explained, it's sim-
ply a matter of modeling a clay
form from which a paper mache
head is later made. With the addi-
tion of a cloth body and wooden
hands, a puppet is born.
PUPPET SKIT writing is a good
discipline for any kind of writing
since action and limited number
of words is the skit writer's by-
word, Witt said.
"The puppet stage is to the
legitimate theatre what the car-
toon is to literature. Both pup-
petry and cartoons require
simple ideas expressed graphi-
cally with very few words," Witt
explained.
If his ideas develop there may
be two groups working in this new
puppet regime. One will set up
shows wherever there may. be a
request and another will study
techniques in puppet making, skit
writing and show production.
"WE HOPE TO FIND some peQ-
ple who have produced puppet
shows before, either on an am-
ateur or professional basis. Then
we will be able to provide better
instruction to those who have had
no experience," Witt said.
Persons interested in this new
puppet gr-oup will meet at 8 p.m.
Friday at Lane Hall. Any one may
attend this organizational meet-
ing, Witt said.

Rev. Melish
To Discuss
Peace Topic
The Rev. William Howard Mel-
ish, recently the center of contro-
versy over freedom in the church,
will speak at 4:30 p.m. Friday at
Canterbury Club, 306 N. Division.
Mr. Melish's talk on "A Way to
Secure World Peace" is sponsored
by the Canterbury Club and the
American Veterans Committee.
* * *
A PRIEST in the Episcopal
Church, Mr. Melish's pastoral re-
lationship with the Church of the
Holy Trinity in Brooklyn was dis-
solved by Bishop James DeWolf
of Long Island upon the request of
the Brooklyn parish vestry.
The vestry charged that Mr.
Melish's chairmanship of the
National Council of American-
Soviet Friendship had kept him
from maintaining the expected
level of responsibility to his par-
ish.
Bishop DeWolf asked him to
leave the church, but he refused
after his parish had voted him
support.
The case was taken into the
courts of New York state which
upheld Bishop DeWolf's action.
Mr. Melish has appealed the case
to a higher court.

Placement Registration: Univer-
sity Bureau of Appointments and
Occupational Information will
hold its annual registration (see
schedule below) for February,
June and August graduates as well
as graduate students or staff mem-
bers who wish to register.
It is most important to register
NOW because the Bureau contin-
ues to serve its registrants after
graduation by helping them secure
better positions. There will be
only one registration period dur-
ing the, academic year. Registra-
tion material will be given out at
the meeting. No material will be
distributed before the meetings.
The Bureau has two placement
divisions: TEACHING and GEN-
ERAL. The TEACHING division
coversall types of teaching posi-
tions as well as other positions in
the educational field. The GEN-
ERAL division includes service to
people seeking positions in busi-
ness, industry and positionsother
than teaching. It is important to
register NOW because employers
are already asking for February
and June graduates. There is no
fee for registering at this time.
