"Command Decision," Play Pro-
duction's third major dramatic
presentation, will open its four-
performance run today at 8 p.m.
in Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
The story of the hit play is pri-
marily concerned with the moral
responsibilities of a hard-boiled,
but basically understanding, com-
manding officer of an American
Air Force division.

BESIDES THE student who
had not requested a postponement
one had withdrawn "expecting to
be drafted,- one withdrew on the
first day of school and another
received his induction notice be-
fore he had enrolled.
A check on the fifth "draftee"
disclosed that he had enlisted.
The accuracy of the remaining
part of the University's list is
doubtful. In breaking. down the
amount of withdrawals into serv-

IF THE STUDENT wrote "to
enter military service" he was
called an enlistee. If he wrote
"recalled . to active service" he
was listed under the reserves. One
student mentioned the National
Guard. Those who claimed they
were "drafted" were listed under
that category, without any check
Actually, it is mandatory un-
der section S1 of the Selective
Service Act of 1948 that the in-
duction of a full time student be

A student actually is enrolled
at the University only for a se-
mester. Therefore a statement
saying that he is enrolled for the
second semester should be sent to
his local draft board unless the
student has already received a
postponement until June.

NOW HEAR THIS-James White, '51, (center) playing Maj. Gen. R. G. Kane tells Ron Soble,
portraying Col. Ted Martin what the word from Washington is. Meanwhile, Al Nadeau, Grad.
who takes the part of the cocky Sgt. Evans displays his disinterest in the proceedings by pouring
himself a cup of coffee.
WRITTEN IN anger against the
meddling of politicians and high-
ranking brass in Washington, ac-
cording to its author, William
Haines, the drama also shows the
confusion and bitterness caused
by the heedless criticising by the
public and the press who are not
acquainted with the reasons for
military decisions made by the of-
In view of the current world
situation, the presentation of
"Command Decision" has be-
come more timely than the
speech department had anticipat-
ed, according to Prof. William
P. Halstead, director of the play.
Because the commanders in Ko-
rea are at the present moment
faced with making decisions that
are unceasingly open for blasts of
disapproval, the play will help keep
its audiences to see a different
view of the various aspects in-
volved in wartime problem solving,

memory coming to him, "some-
times these things go a little too
