GAUDY ITALIAN SATIRE:
Goldoni's 'The Fan' To Open Today
______* * * *

&

By ALICE BOGDONOFF

A gaudy set in bright greens and
oranges and 14 characters dressed
in 18th century costume will adorn
the stage as the curtain rises on
the speech department's produc-
tion of "The Fan" at 8 p.m. today
In Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
The gay farce by Italian drama-
tist Carlo Goldoni, which will run
through Saturday, will be offered
to University and high school stu-
dents at a special 50 cent rate
for all seats at today's and to-
morrow's performances.
* * *
"THE FAN," which is considered
one of Goldoni's best frothy come-
dies, is a bizarre satire involving a
gay, complicated love plot which
revolves around a fan, haughty
senoras, love struck barons, and
foolish clowns.
To add to the carnival effect,
Esther E. Pease of the woman's
physical education department,
has supplied dances for the fes-
tive drama.
The first production of "The
Fan" was done in a unique fash-
ion. , Goldoni, who tried to abolish
the star system, told each per-
former that he or she had the
lead part. He instructed the cast
to learn their parts and to attend
the one dress rehearsal before the
play went on.

ian theater by creating individual

SURPRISED SENORA - Baron del Cedro, played by Victor
Hughes, offers his hunting prize to Geltrude in a scene from
"The Fan." The surprised senora is Joanne Kaiser, '53.

Union Drive
Service Due
For Big Test
The new Union Travel Service'
driver board will receive its first
big test between semesters from.
Jan. 18 to Feb. 11.
With students leaving Ann Ar-
bor at different times after final
exams, matching riders and driv-
ers is unusually complicated, ac-
cording to Union staffer Harry
Blum, '54.
* * *
BLUM SAID the new travel
board will solve matching prob-
lems, if drivers who want riders to
their destination cooperate.
A large bulletin board has
been set up in the Union lobby
on which drivers and riders can
place cards indicating their des-
tination, date and time of de-
parture, route and Ann Arbor
phone number.
Students may watch the board
and find either rides or riders.
Trip reservations may be made by
phone. When a car is filled, the
driver removes his card from the
board,
Staffman Blum urged that
the students plan their travel
accommodations this week to
avoid a last minute rush dur-
ing final examihations. At the
present time, rides are available
to Aspen, Colorado, and Cali-
fornia.
According to Blum, there will
probably be a surplus of riders, as
shown by past Travel Service
trends. He urged all drivers to put
up cards when they want riders
to save themselves the trouble of
checking the rider board.
The new Travel Service system
went into effect last weekend.

or and eminent authority on mu-
sical instruments will lecture on
"Rhythm and Tempo in the His-
tory of Music" at 4:15 p.m. tomor-

atre.
A special lecturer at the New
York public library and professor
emeritus of New York University,
Sachs will arrive in Ann Arbor to-

with graduate students in the mu-
sic school.

son. The spring series, beginning
Feb. 8, will include plays by Bertolt
Brecht, George Bernard Shaw,
