ECLIPSE AIDS WORK:
Scientists Measure Star
Funds To Provide Fun,
Training for 'Shut-ins'
By HARRIET TEPPERMAN
Christmas may be a once-a-year affair for most people, but not
for the children confined to University Hospital, thanks to the pro-
ceeds of the annual Galens Christmas Drive.
Galens Tag Day, to be held today and tomorrow, has set its goal
this year at $6,000 which will provide fun for the shut-ins not only
during the holiday season, but all year round.
THE 24 MEMBERS of the medical honorary and service society
hold the yearly Christmas party about 10 days before Santa Claus is
scheduled to arrive at most homes, so many of the children who are
allowed to go home for Christmas will not be left out.
Arts Theater Club To Open
Gertrude Stein Play Tonight
Scientists of the Dominion As-
trophysical Observatory in Vic-
toria, B.C., working in conuinction
with the University Observatory',
have measured a star 150 times
as large as the sun.
The star is 31 Cygni, a double
star in the constellation Swan. It
is 650 light years from earth, a
16-digit figure in miles.
Assisted by an eclipse that last-
ed 31 days, from Aug. 11 to Oct.
13, the astronomers estimated that
the large half of the double star
is at least 135 million miles in
Scientists have known *for some
50 years that 31 Cygni is a double
star, but it wasn't until last year
that Prof. Dean B. McLaughlin
of the University astronomy de-
partment suggested that the large
one might eclipse the other. Then
last August the eclipse occurred.
The two stars comprising 31
Cygni take 10 years and five
months to circle one another.
When Gertrude Stein stipulated
that any production of her play
"Yes Is for a Very Young Man" be
done "naturalistically" and uncut,
she paved the way for headaches

he "overstepped the rules a little."
On the surface, "Yes Is for a

human reactions to a crisis. Set

The production will run three

BEFORE THE holiday season,
youngsters in the Galens Shop,
also financed by the Christmas
Tag Day, spend most of the time
making presents for their families.
Begun in 1928- with money
raised by the first Christmas
Drive of 1927, the Shop offers
the children a combination of
relief from hospital routine,
plus a way to amuse themselves
and help others.

HANDICRAFT HAVEN--One of
the children confined to Univer-

"Tapeworm," a special breed of
theatre which tries to get every-
thing for itself and pay no atten-
tion to anything else, was named
by noted drama authority George
Freedley as the leading obstacle
in "quality theatre."
Freedley, who spoke in a speech
department assembly yesterday,
explained that this particular
brand of theatre is a result of em-
phasis on financial gain axnd a
lack of insight into what the thea-
tre really stands for. Freedley said.
noon, they have access to wood-
craft, leathers, clay and many
other handicraft tools.
But the Shop has another as-
pect. The older children, handier
with the Shop's tools, mend 'the
toys broken in the year's natural
course of events.
As one of the boys wrote in a
thank you note to Galens, "I
like to ride the tricycle you sent
us. Gene broke one of the wheels
of it the other day, but we're
fixing it this week in the Shop."

HE ESPECIALLY attacked the
unions for their increasing contri-
bution to poorer theatrical produc-
tions. They demand a large num-
ber of limitations purely for their
own good which interfere with the
quality of stage presentations.
The technicians' unions are the
most detrimental, Freedley claim-
ed, because they usually get what-
ever they demand. He traced this
to a time when the unions gave
aid to actors who were striking for
minimum wage guarantees.
Hope is in sight, however, since
several theatre groups have begun
to work toward better cooperation
