'Blind Mice' To Romp Today
With a well-stocked Office of
Medicinal Herbs, the Student . . "- .::{
Players wil present their opening t '':..:..r: i.*.

at 8 p.m. today, tomorrow, and -

The herbs are not for home-
brewed remedies of opening night}
headaches, however. They are the:
center of a comical conflict be-
tween two determined middle-aged'
ladies and equally determined rep-
resentatives of the U. S. Senate,o
Department of State, the Army,"
Navy, and Air Force.:
IN A SATIRIC vein, the Sam-
uel Spevack play, deals with the
efforts of the two women to per-f
petuate the out-moded Federal
Office of Medicinal Herbs, which-
has been officially annihilated by
an economy-minded senator.
Tickets for all three produc- . '
tions of "Two Blind Mice" are
still available at Lydia Mendels-
sohn Box Office for 74c or $1,
according to Jim Brolhead, '52,<
promotions manager. The box-
office will be open until curtain
The "two blind mice," who de-
fend the archaib office of herbs,
will be played by Ann Husselman -r
and Marie Gilson. In' their ef-}
forts to save the office from fi-{
nancial ruin, they rent a room to
a Dixie rhumba teacher, portrayed
by Ann Beale.

NOT CONTENT with one bus-
iness enterprise, the women have
also taken over a gas station and
use a side lot for parking space.
An unused basement room is set
aside for a pants-presser.
Various governmental offices
provide the majority of the
roles. Cast as an irate sena-
tor, Gene Bohi, '53, heads the
roster of the investigating com-
mission. The Department of
State, the Army, Navy and Air
Force, are represented respec-
tively by Joseph Gadon, Mickey
Walker, '53, Maurice Heller, '53,
and Jim Miller.
A frisky newspaperman, Roy
Strozzi, and his ex-wife, Barbara
Enelow, '52, help resolve the pre-
dicament and decide. the ultimate
fate of the herb office.
THE PLAY provides for a num-
ber of lively supporting roles, in-
cluding the newspaperman's for-
mner editor, played by Jim Brod-
head, the senator's nephew, Rich-
ard Rosenfeld, '53,, a parking-lot
manager, Dave Edwards, and a
dance pupil, Mitch Cahill. Intro-
ducing further complications, Ed
Prenner, '53, will be cast as Dr.

On the other side of the foot-
lights, Marie Wilson, director Tom-
Barnum, student director, and
Bob Graham, production manager,
had more than the usual share
of difficulties. Such items as
pipsissewa herbs had to be tracked
down, and burlap curtains refused
to take the right color of dye. At
first no one was willing to loan an
army major's uniform.
An accommodating mail-carrier,
Arthur Gerstler, solved one cos-
tuming problem by offering to
step from his route to Lydia
Mendelssohn stage, where he will
give a realistic performance as a

IPA Trains
Students for
One of the oldest government
research organizations inthee
United States and one of the few
schools in the country which
equips their graduates for govern-
ment posts are combined in the
University's Institute of Public
A unit of the graduate school,
IPA offers a two-year program
utilizing courses in the business
administration, architecture, en-
gineering, law, and literature
schools plus interdepartmental
Combined curriculums allow the
student to work in other fields,
such as public health or engineer-
ing in addition to public adminis-
tration studies.
THESE COURSES are offered
by the Curriculum in Public Ad-
ministration, which furnishes in-
struction. The research unit is the
Bureau of Government, which
publishes pamphlets, bulletins on
its research findings, and manuals
on every phase of government. In
addition it serves as an informa-
tion service open to any citizen or
governmental agency.
The Bureau of Government
started in 1914 as a division of
the political science department.
Its small appropriation was used
mainly to develop a library for
municipal administration stu-
Twenty years later a grant from
the Horace H. and Mary A. Rack-
ham fund expanded research ac-
tivities and the Bureau became a
separate unit.
In 1938 it became part of a new-
ly formed department, the Insti-
tute of Social and Public Adminis-
tration. During the summer ses-
sion in 1946 a further division was
made and the present two-fold
system originated. Last year the
two parts were consolidated under
Prof. John Lederle, of the political
science department.
The scope of the Curriculum
which in the past centered practi-
cally exclusively on municipal gov-
ernment training has in recent
years expanded to include state,
national and even international
government training.

'U' To Deduct Pay
For Fund Drive
A new system of deductions from
the payrolls of faculty members
and employees has been instituted
this year in order to meet the Uni-
versity's increased quota for Com-
munity Fund contributions.
The quota this year has been set
at $30,650, an increase of more
than $8,000 over the amount call-
ed for last year, according to War-
ren W. Chase, chairman of the De-
partment of Wildlife Management.
Chase is conducting the campus
drive which continues through No-
vember 6.
Pledge and payroll deduction
cards being distributed this week
will effect a minimum deduction
of $1.50 per month through the
University's eight-month pay year.

meeting will be "The value of in-
troductory courses." Some points
that will be covered in this discus-
sion are the value of texts used,
size of classes, level and calibre of
instruction and whether prere-
quisite courses are necessary.

FROM.ITS first meetings in 19-
49, the conference has had a con-
siderable influence on the shaping
of University policy, according to
James Robertson, assistant dean of
the college.
In planning curricula, he
points out, immediate changes
cannot be made. "Conferences
enable the administration -nd
faculty to judge what can be
done and how best to do it," he
"In education, progress is not
made by passing resolutions. We
have found the conference's re-
ports invaluable."
A NEW committee has been or-
ganized this year to plan discus-
sion topics. This steering com-
mittee is composed of students who
attempt to choose pertinent topics.
The head of this group, Wal-
ter Vogtmann, '52, will preside
at the first conference. No de-
finite rules of order will be used
for the committee believes that
through 'give and take' more can
be accomplished, Vogtmann said.
At the meeting, a sub-committee
will be appointed by those present
to organize the results of the meet-
ing into a report which will be pre-
sented to the literary college.
All interested students are in-
vited to attend.

Frustrated student drivers who
circle block after block every
morning in search of parking
places need not curse the man who
wlouldn't give them special park-
ing permits.
With a new crack-down on Uni-
versity parking lot rules, the park-
ing problem has been brought
sharply into the foregrounl this
year, and assistant vice president
in charge of permits, Herbert G.
Watkins has his headaches too.
WATKINS HAS received over
250 special permit requests, most
Part Time Work

Part time yard jobs for men stu-
dents who want extra money are

nel Service at 312 Administration
The work consists of raking
leaves, taking down screens and
putting up storm windows for pri-
vate residgnts. Workers will be
paid $1.00 'an hour.
Male students are also needed
for meal jobs at fraternities, local
restaurants, and women's dormi-
tories. Free meals are given in ex-
change for twenty hours of work

of which he has been unable to
grant, in addition to requests
which are automatically granted.
Despite the addition of three new
lots in the campus area, bringing
the total of 30 lots, there are park-
ing places for onl# 800 cart, and
2500 permits have been issued,
Another lot is being readied
for opening on Thompson street,
but it is only a small step in
the alleviation of the situation.
Watkins said, "there just isn't
enough room in the area."
Among the reasons given by
students for needing special per-
mits are ill health, at least one
student deliberately falsifying this,
commuting to work from class,
and family convenience.
