'Gondoliers' Crew Try
To Float Ship on Stage
By WENDY OWEN
A ship can float without water.
At least that's the hope of the
Gilbert and Sullivan Society's pro-
Alumni who were not able to at-
tend Michigan football games this
season will not miss out entirely
on the gridiron thrills.
J. Stuart Finlayson, Michigan
Alumni Association field secretary,
is now in the East showing movies
to various University alumni clubs,
while Robert 0. Morgan has been
traveling throughout the Middle
Alumni clubs in
Chicago, Long Island
New York have seen
movies this week.
THEY'LL HAVE a chance to
test this theory during their pre-
sentation of "Gondoliers" which
will run Dec. 13, 14 and 15 in Pat-
tengill Auditorium at Ann Arbor
But as yet the proper system
for launching a non-seagoing
vessel hasn't been figured out.
The production men were call-
ed upon at the beginning of the
semester to produce a life-size gon-
dola complete with flat bottom
and stern which could conquer the
waves of the Pattengill Auditor-
ium stage with five passengers
SO FAR all they've been able
to do is construct the boat.
The problem of floating it
across the stage in a life-like
manner still remains unsolved.
The first attempts at seaman-
ship were made with roller skates.
The stage-crew fastened several
pairs of skates to the keel of their
wooden masterpiece and started
pulling it across the stage in a
* * *
THIS PROVED unfortunate be-
cause three cast members cut
themselves on the tips of the
skates which had promptly ripped
through the bottom of the boat.
The guiding line wasn't strong
enough, either, and the boat pull-
ed out .of the hands of the crew
and rolled wildly across the floor.
After abandoning the roller-
skates, the group toyed with such
projects as a miniature rail-road
track across the stage, attaching
bicycle wheels to the stage-side of
the ship or hiring a horse to pull
Though stage-crew members are
confident they'll come up with a
solution, society president Gary
Hicks, '51, asked any campus gon-
dola expert who has an idea for
propelling the craft, to contact him
"We'll need a lot of people to
push it," he confided, "if they don't
work something out soon."
Re s Fear
The threat of military action
against Red outposts in Eastern
Siberia could bring Russia, the
United States' "implacable ene-
my," to terms, according to Esson
M. Gale, director of the Univer-
sity International Center.
"It is time that American pres-
tige be once more restored, espec-
ially in Asiatic countries," Gale
said recently, speaking before the
Men's Club of the Metropolitan
Methodist Church in Detroit.
The director, a former finan-
cial adviser to the Chinese Na-
tionalist government, urged that
we should not allow victory to
elude us now that "American
military genius has once more sal-
vaged the Pacific area from a
"With one of the most power-
ful striking forces ever assembled
actually now on the East Asiatic
coast and at the disposal of the
United Nations, military opera-
tions could be carried out with
comparative ease from Korean
and Japanese bases against lightly
defended Russian posts such as
Vladisvostok in Eastern Siberia,"
Gale pointed out that "the mere
threat to Eastern Siberia would
be sufficient to bring the Krefinlin
to terms" because of the showing
made by UN forces in Korea. He
warned that Russia would still be
a menace if the UN accepts an
inconclusive peace in Korea and
withdraws, or places a puppet
government in charge.

HE NOTED. that with nearly
6,000 gifts contributed from Uni-
versity alumni all over the world,
his committee now feels justified
in seeking substantial support
from industry. "We have reached
our first important milestone."
As yet no really "big" dona-
tions have been received from
foundations or industry, al-
though Phoenix officials hope a
number will be on the way soon.
The national drive was schedul-
ed to close at the end of last
month, but because some regional
campaign chairmen had not been
able to fully organize their work-
ers by then, Lang extended the
closing date to the end of this

"Many local committees are
still just getting underway. We
expect big gains as the larger
cities such as New York, De-
troit and Los Angeles contact
more of the alumni in their cit-
ies," he said.
At the same time studelit drive
officials here said that the cam-
pus campaign was off to a good
start. During the first two days
of the drive four house groups
have turned in contributions from
at least 80 percent of their mem-
bers. The average pledge is $30,
