Oliver Smith
Gives Views
On Theater
Oliver Smith, producer of "In
the Summer House" which will
have its world premiere here Tues-
day, expressed his views on the
theater as being "not only a place
of entertainment but a place for
ideas."
STARRING Miriam Hopkins,
"In the Summer House" will be
the second play of this year's Dra-
ma Season.
Smith said that the various
drama festivals around the
country will do much to make
people theater-conscious.
Smith mentioned that he has
had an option on "In the Summer
House" since 1945, when he first
read Jane Bowles' manuscript.
"Difficulty in getting a good cast"
was the reason for the delay in its
production, he said.
* * *
HOWEVER the play, which he
calls a literary piece on the order
of Lorca or Eliot, will go to New
York in the fall even if they hate
it in Ann Arbor, but I doubt that
they will, Smith said.
Commenting on' the fact that
plays are often at the mercy of
critics, he said that critics hold too
much power, because people are
too lazy to make up their own
minds. Instead they read a small
bit of print which tells them that
the play is either a smash hit or
a flop.

'UNDERGROUND RAILWAY':
Network of Tunnels Serves Campus

By ELSIE KUFFLER "
Beneath the expansive grass and
concrete University campus exists
a strange reminder of the days of
the "underground railway,"
Instead of transporting fugitive
slaves as in the Civil War period.
however, this underground tun-
nel system pipes heat and water
to University buildings. The elab-
orate system eliminates the need
for overhead pipelines detracting
from the appearance of the cam-
put.

SL To Hold
TravelTalks
The Student Legislature and a
local travel service will present
"Voyage of Discovery," first in a
series of travel meetings, at 7:30
plm. today in the League.
A representative from the ser-
vice will discuss possibilities of
group travel, which would make
possible discounts to individual
students. A full length film on
world travel will be shown.
Plans have been made to con-
tinue travel evenings next year. A
different country will ve viewed at
each meeting. Food from that
country will be served and its cul-
ture, customs and other outstand-
ing features will be discussed.
If sufficient interest is shown in
today's meeting, a campus travel
club will be organized. Purpose of
the club would be to familiarize
students with different areas of
the world and to help them ar-
range trips.

RADIO MOSCOW:
Quad Station To Present
Broadcast From Russia

PIPES AS large as 20 inches in
diameter carry compressed air,
high and low pressure steam and
domestic hot water through the
dark, winding five miles of tun-
nel.
In addition to pipelines, the tun-
nels also contain telephone wires,
eliminating the necessity of having
telephone poles on campus.
Physically, the tunnels resem-
ble neither the Paris sewers or
the tunnels in "Alice in Won-
derland." Hardly as romantic,
the older ones are constructed
of arched brick, while the more
recent ones have concrete walls
with flat concrete ceilings.
They are large enough for a
man to walk through without
bumping his head, but provide no
pleasure tour because of their
humid, gaseous atmosphere.
ALTHOUGH usually unnoticed,
the tunnels caused some disturb-
ance several years ago when the
felt lining of one of the pipes
caught fire. In traditional mine

"This is Radio Moscow calling."
With the sound of the Russian
announcer's crisp voice and the
bells of the Kremlin ringing in the
distance via tape recorder, WQRS
West Quad radio network will pre-
sent the second broadcast of its
new public service program, "World
Viewpoint" from 7 to 8 p.m. today.
, ,
IN AN EFFORT to acquaint lis-
teners with the viewpoints and
propaganda techniques of foreign
ndtions, Joe Reymann, '55, and
Tom Dierda, '56, have made tape
recordings of short-wave broad-
casts beamed at the United States
from Russia, Switzerland, Aus-
tralia and French West Africa
which they plan to rebroadcast
regularly.
TheRussian broadcast, offi-
cially called the North Ameri-
can Service of Radio Moscow,
has been given top billing on

WQRS because of current rela-
tions with Russia in the cold
war. The Soviet Broadcasts are
handled by announcer's whose
accents range from cultured
British pronunciation to the
broad midwestern American
variety.
A world news summary, con-
sisting of Pravada, Izvestia and
other Soviet newspaper editorials
written during the week provides
a good example of Russian propa-
ganda methods.

Hophead Talk
To Be Given
"American Humor and the
Atomic Age" will be the topic of
the first annual Hophead Award
Lecture which will be given at 3
p.m. Tuesday in Kellogg Audi-
torium, Jan Winn, '55, acting man-
aging editor of Gargoyle, announc-
ed yesterday.
Prof. Austin Warren of the Eng-
lish department will deliver the
lecture. Hophead Award winners
will be announced following the
applause.
"Prof. Warren is a noted Yankee
critic and a nice man," Miss Winn
said.
The lecture will be open to the
public.
