Odets Drama
To Begin Run
On Saturday
Switching f r o m continental
dlrama to an American play, the
Arts Theatre Club will present
Clifford Odets' "Rocket to the
WMoon" starting Saturday.
The 'production, which is billed
as a "romance," is a later play by
Ddets and is considered by the
playwright as a much more seri-
ous, more mature drama than
such plays as "Awake and Sing"
and "Waiting for Lefty" which
brought him early fame.
production is part of an Odets
revival which began in England
two years ago and has gained
momentum throughout the Unit-
ed States.
Praising the dramatic worth
of the play, Strowan Robertson,
a member of the group, said
that "in Odets' plays are found
the seeds for the great harvest
we're presently having in Amer-
ican drama." "There are hints
in it," Robertson continued, "of
'Born Yesterday' and 'Death of
a Salesman."
Odets, whose plays did not catch{
n at first, was a part of the Group
Theatre from which came a whole
new school of modern playwriting
and acting.

$1 contribution, but students
should feel free to give whatever
they can, Staebler said.
Last year the $1,000 student
quota was exceeded by $89.
"From the wonderful support I
have received already, I am sure
we can surpass this year's quota
before the campaign closes
March 28," he concluded.
The faculty drive is already un-
der way with a goal of $5,250, ac-
cording to Edward G. Grosbeck,
assistant registrar and in charge
of the faculty and staff division.
One-third of the goal has now
been reached, he said, although
only 31 of the 138 University de-
partments have contributed. Gros-
beck urged every faculty member
to contribute before the drive
closes at the end of March. If any
one has not had the opportunity
to contribute he should contact
Grosbeck at University extension

tenaw country drive during March

Bonesof Stilt Legged Horse
HelpShow Story of Evolution'

Twelve bones from the hind legj
of a "stilt legged horse" now on
display at the University Museums
illustrate a part of the dramatic
story of evolution.
The bones were found last sum-
mer by Prof. Claude W. Hibbard,
Curator of Vertebrate Paleontol-
ogy at the museum. Prof. Hibbard,
accompanied by four students on
a summer field trip, was exploring
the brakes of the Cimarron River
in southwestern Kansas looking
for specimens when he discovered

is technically not a true horse.
The skeleton resembles that of a
donkey. The sname was given to
it because of the disproportionate
length of its- legs to the rest of
the body, making the animal ap-

pear to be on stilts'in comparison
with other equines. According to
Prof. Hibbard, it was about th'e sizeE
of our present day race horse-"a
very swift, trim job."
The exhibit has been placed inI
the horse alcove in the Hall of
Evolution in the museum.
