The report says, "It is clear that

A spectral village that comes to
life once every century provides
the setting for the Broadway hit
musical play "Brigadoon," which
will be presented here by the Stu-
dent Players, beginning Nov. 12.
Allan J. Lerner, who wrote the
book for the show, has said that
he wrote the happy ending first
and then worked backwards.
HIS FORMULA apparently has
proved immensely successful, for

ONE REASON for the larger
potential vote is new industrial
communities such as Pittsfield
Village which have grown up in
the Second Congressional District
in recent years.
Republicans in the area do
not feel that it will endanger
their chances of victory.
Democrats, on the other hand,
look hopefully toward these areas
for the votes that might swing the
"It is primarily a problem of get-
ting out the Democratic vote, and
we feel we can do it this time," a
volunteer worker emphasized.
ANOTHER HOTLY contested is-
sue in Washtenaw County is the
CountydCourthouse proposal, with
both sides confident of victory.
The issue cuts across party
lines, with Ann Arbor Republi-
cans and Democrats supporting
a "yes" vote.
Malcolm C. Taylor, Chairman
of the Ann Arbor Citizens Court-
house Committee, declared that
since the courthouse situation has
been "bungled since 1935, the peo-
ple are disgusted with objections
to the courthouse proposal and will
vote for it."
On the other hand, George
Handy, editor of the Ypsilanti
Daily Press, noted that a similar
proposal was defeated in 1950 be-
cause the suggested site was in-
adequate, and that the same thing
will happen again.

The story that captured the
hearts of sophisticated New
Yorkers takes place in the en-
chanted town of Brigadoon.
While the rest of the world
wears itself out, the. villagers of
Brigadoon exist in neighborly con-
tentment, emerging from their re-
mote corner of time to come to
life for one day every century.
When two American travelers
stumble upon the villagp, a tale of
faith and magical love follows,
leading to the happy ending.
EXPLAINING THE decision to
present "Brigadoon" here, Student
Players president Joseph Gadon,
'53, said, "Our function is to pre-
sent plays that have a universal
"This is one show which has a
magical charm that should cap-
ture everyone's imagination. We
expect that it should be just as
successful as last year's production
of Finian's Rainbow."
Brigadoon will run for four days,
Wednesday, Nov. 12 through Sat-
urday, Nov. 15. Orchestra seats at

revenues compared to 23 per
cent in the other 47 states.
The state tax structure should
be changed by adding more of the
principle of ability to pay, thus
lessening the regressive nature of
our present system. We should
seek a new tax source which will
raise the funds we need quickly
and simply, which will have a low
cost of collection, and which will
not compound the present inequi-
ties but rather add balance to our
present tax structure. A corporate
profits tax, replacing the present
corporate franchise tax, will ac-
