Goldstein, now resident play-
wright at the Erie Playhouse in
Erie, Pa., plans to be on hand for
opening night, sparing last minute
requests from his employers to
return to his neglected job. Novi

to supervise production efforts,
Goldstein praised I a s t night's
dress rehearsal as a "remarkable
"LIVE ON AIR," which embod-
ies the author's belief in "writing
about what you know best," is a
realistic play dealing with a fam-
ily of Lithuanian immigrants liv-
ing in a New York tenement.
As the hard-working immi-
grant parents, Richard Burgwin,
Grad., and Carol Kazahn, '52,
find it hard to tolerate their re-
bellious children, played by
Mickey Sager, '52, and Herbert

TWO EXPERIMENTAL "dream
sequences" serve to probe deeper
into the introversion of the char-
acters than usual dramatic means
allow, and to add fantasy to the
drab slum life. Choreography for
the sequences was directed by Es-
ther Pease, Associate Supervisor
of the Women's Physical Educa-
The sequences also gave the cos-
tume committee, headed by Jeri
Rich, Grad., and Chuck Hoefler,
'52, plenty of room for imagina-
tion. Don-David Lusterman, '54
SM, composed the musical back-
Tonight's opening will be a stu-
dent special, and all seats will sell
for 60 cents. Tickets are avail-
able for all performances at the
Lydia Mendelssohn Box Office.

Groups of masquerading Univer-
sity students gave local small fry
some serious competition for the
traditional Halloween goodies
which Ann Arborites passed out
to the cries of "trick or treat" last
Some thirsty college men gave
the cry a more mature twist and
ordered "tricks or beer" at the
doors of their friends' apartments.
The night of eery ghosts and
witches on broomsticks was used
as an excuse for many campus
groups to hold mid-week parties.
MANY superstitions have been
built up around this night of lost
souls and one of the most interest-
ing is that babies born on October
31 can perceive the supernatural.
However, Halloween baby Mary
Marsh, '53, who celebrated her
twentieth birthday yesterday says
she has never been conscious of
any such power.
She added that she wished
she did have a little supernatur-
al insight into the contents of
the blue book she's scheduled
to take this afternoon.
Halloween pranks on a small
scale have been noticed in resi-
dences all during the week. Salt-
ed tooth powder, knotted pajamas
and soaped mirrors have been a
WOMEN at Adelia Cheever
House got a bigger Halloween sur-
prise than they bargained for when
a howling masked figure invaded
the upper floor amusing the bed
clad women until they noticed the
disguise included a brush cut.
Local police announced that no
serious pranks had been reported.
However, they have had calls all
week for minor offenses such as
breaking windows, ringing door-
bells and overturning trash cans.
Police report that the extent of
destructive acts on Halloween has
been greatly reduced during the
past few years in Ann Arbor pro-
per and campus alike.
