Cornell Tells of Faith
In Future of Theater
"I never lose faith in the theater!" confessed Katharine Cornell,
"even if it is wearing a little thin."
Concurring with Arthur Miller's recent statement criticizing
the theater, Miss Cornell said that the theater is "in need of new
blood." She added that a small group of half a dozen good actors can-
not keep the theater up without new and fresh talent in all fields.

The confirmation of an exchange student program between the

the Free University of Berlin, and the Office of All-German Student
Word has been received by the Legislature that the Free Univer-

next fall. Negotiations are also under way to sponsor a GermanI
student here, at the University for a year.
This plan is one aspect of the SL program to provide material
help for the students of the Berlin University. The whole program
includes: 1. The provision of two scholarships for East Zone
refugee students at the Free University. 2. Books for both the Free
University and the Office of All-German Student Affairs. These
would be selected from lists compiled in Berlin. 3. The collection
of food and clothing packages which would be sent to needy Berlin
