Stage Crew Stars in Movie
By PAT ROELOFS
"Lights, camera, action!"
With this command, Charles
Hoefler, Grad., focused his 16 mm.
camera on the partially finished
stage setting in Lydia Mendelssohn
THE USUALLY unsung heroes
Tofa dramatic production, better
known as the crew, were stars of
the movie entitled "Design, Con-
struction, Assembly and Shifting
of the Stage Scenery for Faust."
They were working on the
scenery for the forthcoming pro-
duction of Gounod's opera,
"Faust" which will open at 8
p.m. Friday and play Saturday
and Monday through Wednes-
day nights in Lydia Mendelssohn
The impressive title, and the
movie, show a development of a}
particular set from the time the
idea was conceived by the scene
designer, until its application on
This film will be the first of its
kind recording one complete dra-
matic production from beginning
to end, and is going to be sub-
mitted later this month as Hoef-r
ler's master's thesis in speech.

THE IDEA of using a moving
picture for a thesis has a definite
purpose according to Hoefler. He
plans to use the finished film as
a teaching device. He further feels
that the film will be a valuable
reference for the University con-
cerning the production of "Faust."
The silent film, in black and
white, wilt run about 25 min-
utes. Estimated cost of the en-
tire thesis project is $70, Hoef-
The movie will show construc-
tion of "Faust" sets, which include
Faust's study, a tavern, church,
prison and garden scenes. A "plug"
set, designed by Jack Bender, play
production art director, accom-
modates the rapid changes neces-
sary in the opera.
Three basic arches are used for
the entire show, with flown props
and backdrops filling in to alter
the scenes. A special technical re-
hersal is being held in order to
perfect the timing in scene chang-
Hoefler believes that he is the
+ first person to make a movie for
a thesis, but feels that film tech-
niques should be used more often
in the speech department, not only
in filming future productions, but
also in public speaking courses.

Kiddle Explains Conflict
In Spanish Verb Form
Prof. Lawrence B. Kiddle of the
Spanish Department discussed the
use of 'vos' as opposed to 'tu' in the
formation of the Spanish verb last
night before the Linguistics Club.

the second person, Kiddie dis-
cussed the social implications and
traced the history of the word
'vos' through its stages of meaning.
ORIGINALLY indicating for-
mality, then insult, the use of
vos' finally fell into disuse in
Spain. However, Kiddle pointed
out that it was brought to the
Western Hemisphere during the
period of Spanish colonization,
and today is a subject of contro-
versy in the Spanish speaking
countries of Central and South
Basing his conclusions on a
study of students from Span-
ish-American Spanisli speaking
countries made here at the Uni-
versity, Kiddle divided these
countries into three main groups,
those in which the 'vos' form is
used exclusively, those in which
only the 'tu' form is used, and
those in which both forms are
With Peru as the center of con-
flict, Kiddle pointed out that in
areas where the 'vos' form is not
standard it is generally considered
more crude than the 'tu' form, and
for this reason will probably fall
into eventual disuse.

Of Men's Recreational Areas
The City Planning Commission

Arbor population, has "overlooked
the necessity of providing recre-

recreation areas, playground facil-

children's playgrounds and for
men students in the University.

for the conflict is that 707 acres
of the land are in the form of
large parks such as the Arboretum,

courses, and the Botanical Gar-
