French lessons were made easy
for members of Le Cercle Francais
last night..
Mary Lubienski, '53, added
visible French culture to the Cer-
cle's usual conversation with a leg-
gy can-can. Garbed in traditional
gartered black net stockings and
ruffled petti-coats she bounced
gayly through a maze of card
tables to the recorded tunes of
"Gaite Parisienne.'
HER OFFERINGS to the group
also included a Mexican hat dance,
'high art' ballet and a Polish folk
dance. The hat dance, performed
as an encore, used a visiting pro-
fessor's brown felt 'chapeau' and
a chorus of Cercle l'rancais mem-
bers chanting out the rhythm in
the background.
Miss Lubienski has danced pro-
fessionally in Detroit, entertain.'
ing soldiers at the USO and the
Dearborn Veterans' Hospital
She as also part of the Detroit
Allied Festival which featured
different dances from different
nations. -
The blonde Detroiter has no
thought of continuing to dance
professionally in spite of her ten
years of training. She plans to
onentrate in journalism next year.
However, according to her dor-
mitory mates, she makes good use
of her dance training keeping them
amused with imitations of profes-
sor's mannerisms.

Arts Group
TO Present
Ibsen Play
"Master Builder," one of Henrik
Ibsen's later and more symbolic
plays, will open Friday for a week-
and-a-half run at the Arts Theatre
Club.
The play, third in the club's
spring season of six productions, is
directed by Strowan Robertson
while Jerry Lepard handles the
scenic design.
IBSEN'S WORK concerns the
architect Solness and how he ul-
timately brings destruction on
himself. Unlike the plays for which
the Norwegian playwright is most
famous, "Master Builder" has more
psychology than it has social con-
sciousness.
"His reputation as a writer of
plays of social significance is one
of the things which has ham-
pered a full appreciation of Ib-
sen's worth," Robertson said.
"Ibsen got the label of a writer of
socially significant plays because
he hit his stride at the time the
wave of social consciousness was at
its peak," Robertson explained.
* * *
"ACTUALLY," the director con-
tinued, "Ibsen went on to write
more subtle and powerful dramas
than his early social dramas but
the early plays made his reputa-
tion and that's what he's remem-
bered for."
Admission to the plays of the
club is by membership card only
although members may, for a fee,
bring guests with them. A club
membership costs $6; the fee for
a guest is $1.25. Membership cards
may be purchased at the club's
theatre at 2091/2 E. Washington
daily or by calling the club at 7301.

By PVT. PETER HOTTON
After at hard day's work in the
field, attending lectures, going
through endless exercises and tac-
tics, and often standing in line
waiting for nothing, we gobbled up
off-duty hours and relaxation.
But finding a place for relaxa-
tion was next to impossible, with
the comparatively poor facilities in
and around Camp Polk. And the
barracks was the last place to go
to relax.1

SOME 40 MEly were stuck on
each barracks floor either in single
or double-decked bunks, with a
few square feet of space for clothes
and footlockers. Relaxing or read-
ing on bunks was quite possible,
except for a few exuberant men
with loud voices, a chip on their
shoulder, and worst of all, radios.
There were only about five,
radios on the floor, but each one
was usually tuned to a different
station and turned up as loud as
it could play. The programs lis-
tened to were always "the de-
light of the 45th"-hillbilly mu-
sic.
Radios were never tuned In on
dramatic programs or any other
music, and a news program was a
rarity. No one seemed to care how
the war was going or how the
country was being run, although
many of the men talked as if they
knew everything there was to know
about the government and the war.
AND EVERY TIME I tried to
sneak to the day room for a little
peace and quiet, I'd find a radio
there blaring out "Remember Me,
I'm the One Who Loves You," by
Tennessee Ernie.
Aboutthe only peace available
was on weekends, when most of
the men were out on pass. But
when we were all restricted to
the post or just before payday
SL To Discuss Fate

Today

when everyone was broke, week-
ends were just like any other
nights.
Bull sessions broke out at least
once an evening, and they provided
a sort of entertainment. Most of
the men liked to argue, but they
usually had loud voices and pound-
ed on the table instead of the facts.
Quite a few of the men were ra-
bidly anti-Truman, thought that
the industrialists wanted war to
make more money, and hated their
neighbors back home who drafted,
them instead of the other guy.
* * s
BULL SESSIONS weren't al-
ways geared to the Army or the
war, however. Last fall duripg the
height of the football season no
one from the East, Midwest, South
or West could say a word about
their teams, because the Okla-
homans drowned them out brag-
ging about the number one team in
the country, the University of Ok-
lahoma.
But after Oklahoma's defeat
by Kentucky in the Sugar Bowl
New Year's Day, plus Michigan's
victory over California the same
day, they didn't talk about foot-
ball any more.,
Always good for ,alaugh in the
barracks were the magazine arti-
cles written with the intention of
depicting for civilians Army life as
it really is. Tops in this glowing
journalism was an article appear-
ing in the November issue of Coro-
net Magazine entitled: "Good
News for Parents of Today's Sol-
diers."
THE DRAFTEES are somewhat
bitter because theyare in the in-
fantry, but they fail to remember
that they could have joined the
Air Force or the Navy. The Na-
tional Guardsmen want no part of
the active service and keep insist-
ing they "never volunteered for
this guff." But the men who en-
listed or reenlisted in the Army for
three or four years don't say a
word.
The volunteers do get one
privilege. They can sew a patch
on their shoulder proclaiming
them members of the "regular
Army." We draftees would like
a patch that says "We Wuz
Robbed!" or "We're Draftees and
Proud of It!"
The general attitude among all
the soldiers is one of disgust-
toward the "new Army," which has
turned out to be less tolerable than
the old one, according to the vets;
toward the Korean mess; toward
the government's handling or mis-
handling of affairs; and toward
life in general.
Despite all its hardships and in-
justices, Army life hasn't been so
bad on the draftees who were liv-
ing the life of Riley only a few
short months ago.
But just the same, everyone
dreams of a discharge, and most of
us want no part of the Army, or
any service, including the National
Guard or Reserves, either active,
inactive, organized, or disorgan-
ized.

"Romeo and Juliet," one of
Shakespeare's greatest and most
famous tragedies, will open a four
night run at 8 p.m. today in the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
Presented by the speech depart-
ment the play has been directed
by Prof. William P. Halstead. In
the title roles will be William
Bromfield, Grad., a n d Diane
Faulk, '51. Both have had much
previous experience in Shakes-
pearian productions.
MISS FAULK PLAYED Titania
in last fall's production of "A Mid-
summer Night's Dream" and also
played Miranda in "The Temp-
est," given during last year's
spring drama festival.
Bromfield appeared in both of
these plays, taking the romantic
leads. In addition le played
Sebastian in "Twelfth Night,"
when it was done two years ago
in the spring drama festival.
Kindly old Friar Lawrence will
be played by Ted Heusel, Grad.;
Juliet's nurse will be Irene Kelley,
Grad.; Juliet's parents will be
played by Theodore Sizer, Grad.,
and Joyce Bohyer; and Romeo's
dashing friend Mercutio will be
played by Nafe Katter.
RICHARD BURG WIN, Grad.
will play the Prince and read the
famous prologue while Ron Soble
will play the 'fiery Tybalt.
Others in the cast are Art Nev-
ins, Will Booth, William Hadley,
Bernard Kissel, Conrad Stolzen-
bach, Jeri Rich, John DerDerian
and Anthony Georgilas.

cal score has been composed by
