Sherwood Play Opens Tonight

"The whole play will be genu-
inely Finnish, from the spirit of
the people to the afternoon coffee
pot," claimed Prof. Hugh Norton
of the speech department,
Norton was speaking of the
speech departments' production of
Robert, Sherwood's "There Shall
Be No Night" which opens at 8
p.m. today in Lydia Mendelssohn
Theater and runs through Satur-
THE PLAY, which won a Pulitz-
er Prize in 1941, centers around
the story of a Finnish scientist
who must send his son to fight
against the Russian invasion of
his homeland.
To insure a genuine Finnish
touch to the production, Norton,
the director, contacted Eino
y Kainlauri, of the architecture
school, who is not only Finnish
but who also served as a lieuten-
ant in the war which Sherwood
wrote about.
According to Norton, Kainlauri
tried to convey the actual feeling
of the Finns who fought, against
i the Russians and Germans in this
war to the cast.
TO HELP with realistic costum-
ing, the former lieutenant's uni-
form is to be used as a model for
the uniforms in the play.
Helping with other aspects of
the play, Kainlauri contributed
a book of Finnish folk music,
instructed the stage crew in con-
structing an accurate represen-
tation of a Finnish country
schoolroom, and showed them
how a Finnish Christmas tree
differs from an American
Christmas tree.
' With nothing but praise for the
play, the Finn said that "Sher-
wood has written a drama with
the most perfect knowledge of the
Finnish mood, temperament and
way of life."
Sherwood's play was chosen by
the speech department as part of
International Theatre Month des-
ignated by the UNESCO Council of
the United Nations.
The Finnish doctor will be
played by Nafe Katter, Grad. Oth-
ers in the cast are Betty Ellis,
Grad., William Hadley, '52 and
Marilyn MeWood, '53.
A special student rate for 50
cents is being offered for per-
formances today and tomorrow.
Regularly priced tickets are $1.20,
ninety and sixty cents. All tickets
may be purchased from 10 a.m.
to 5 p.m. daily at the Lydia Men-
delssohn box office.

Brick Walls
Newly erected campus buildings
are turning into "igloos."
The eskimo architecture has
appeared during the winter
months on the East and South
Quadrangles and Business Admin-
istration Bldg. The igloo effect is
caused by the bricks on the walls
turning white.
this whitening is termed "efflor-
escence." According to Lynn W.
Fry, supervising architect of plant
service, the whiteness is probably
a result of the soluble salts within
the bricks or mortar.
These salts have been going
into solution because of the
damp weather. The salt solution
then gradually seeps to the sur-
face, resulting in the white ap-
pearance of the bricks. Fry

explained that at present the
best means of coping with the
A whiteness is to eliminate all
possible moisture from brick lay-
ing methods.
Students do not have to become
alarmed or reach for their parkas.
Fry said that the whiteness is a
seasonal condition, and that, with

SDA Hears
Role Debate
The importance of a moderate
national economy was agreed upon
by Prof. Kenneth Boulding and
Prof. William Paton when they
discussed government's role in.
economic affairs before last night's
meeting of Students for Democrat-
ic Action.
Both stressed the need for a na-
tional economy tight enough to
stimulate productivity but not so
tight that it will bring about dis-
Prof. Boulding, of the economics
department, told the meeting that
it is the government's responsibili-
ty to prevent a recurrence of a
depression like that of the 1930's.
Referring to Government as an
apparatus for stabilizing our eco-
nomic system, Boulding compared
it to an engine which slows things
down when they are moving too
fast and speeds them up when they
are going too slowly.
Prof. Paton, of the Bus Ad
school, called the government a
"public policeman," which must be
kept in line. It has certain re-
sponsibilities such as the control
of monopolies, he asserted, but it
must not become a monopoly it-
self, for too much government
leads to paralysis, he said.
The question of equal distribu-
tion of wealth was also discussed.

"The Newspaper That Threw
Away the Rule Book" will be dis-
cussed by William F. Kerby, vice-
president of the Wall Street Jour-
nal, Barron's Magazine and the
Dow Jones News Service in the
seventh of the University Lectures
in Journalism at 3 p.m. today in

A Magna Cum Laude graduate
of the University, Kerby has
handled the editorial direction of
the Wall Street Journal, and af-
filiated Dow Jones Services and
publications since his appointment
to the position of vice-president
and treasurer last year.
Since 1933 he has served succes-
sively as the Journal's news edi-
tor, assistant managing editor and
executive editor.
Beginning his career as a
journalist during summer vaca-
tions, Kerby worked as a police
reporter for the Washington
Daily News in 1926 and served

More Home Rule
TUNIS-(/P)-France yesterday
offered Tunisia more home rule,
but insisted the Bey, the nominal
ruler, first fire Premier Moham-

alist cabinet.
French officials said the 70-
year-old Bey, Sidi Mohammed Al-
Amin, answered with a "temporiz-
ing note."

Borscht is a substantial soup
of vegetables, but for centuries
gourmets have not been able to
agree on beets, cabbage or car-
rots for its preparation. While
cabbage is favored in some Eur-
opean countries, United States
borscht experts are convinced of
the supremacy of beets.
The varied and intricate ways
of preparing and eating borscht
are also subject to heated debates.
First there are the hot and cold
borscht partisans, a relatively mild
group compared with their sour
cream compatriots.
But the sour cream favorers are
not in complete accord. Some pre-
fer their cream mixed throughout
the soup, while others eat their
borscht with the sour cream on
The Polonia Club chef, Ray
Lewkowicz, has taken a firm stand
on all these issues. He will serve
hot beet borscht with plenty of
sour Bream and black bread.
