THE STRING Orchestra was or-
ganized by Prof. Ross during the
war to take the place of the Uni-
versity Symphony Orchestra. The
latter was temporarily disbanded

The group was continued at the
war's end to give advanced string
students in the music school a
chance to play and hear the rare-
ly performed string music of the
16 and 1700's. Since then, the pro-
gram, open to the public without
charge, has become an annual
affair every November.

ONE OF THE most outstanding
aspects of "Murder in the Cathed-
ral," written in 1935 by T. S. Eliot,
is the use of a chorus, the Women
of Canterbury. This innovation
marks a revolutionary attempt to
revert to the original ritual forms
of the drama, according to Dana
Elcar, director of the play.

Meeting every other week at the

sparked by outside guest speakers.
IN THE PAST these have in-

be followed by a discussion pe-
At other meetings, members of
the group present topics of perti-

humanizing hospital relations are
two topics now being planned.
