NO COVER CHARGE':
Mgimes To Sponsor 33rd
Voting Privilege Granted
To Women of Lebanon
By BOB APPLE
The performance of "No Cover
Charge" will mark the 33rd time
that Mimes of the Michigan
Union will sponsor the Union
The history of Mimes, an elec-
tiye honorary society dedicated to
the furthering of play productions,
dates back to 1913 and the Union
Opera of that year, "Contrary
IN WAS IN that year a group
of. prominent members of the
Union Opera formed together to
organize a dramatic club. The
small club quickly blossomed with
the presentation of short- skits,

The most important threat fac-
ing the American people is not
Russian aggression as such, but
rather the possible weakening of
our convictions during a long pe-
riod of tension, according to Prof.
Elton Trueblood, of Earlham Col-

Discussing "The - Basis of the
Life *We Prize," Prof. Trueblood
said that to counteract this dan-
ger of internal failure, today's
youhig people- must "consistently
and thoroughly build up a body of
thought concerning the meaning
of the good life."
*COMMUNISM, he said, gets its
main strength, not from its politi-
cal and' economic implications, but
from the fact that it has become
a faith for a group of young peo-
ple in an area covering half the
Citing the rapid rise of com-
munism as, an indication of its
power, he said that it can only
be compared to Islam, which
constituted, on a smaller scale,
the same sort of mass movement.
Fo this reason, according to
Pref. Trueblood, our world tensions
,will not .be alleviated in the for-
seeable future. "There is no evi-
dence" he said, "that we in this
century can live in peace."
Instead, we must learn to 'ac-
cept this condition, and must sum-
mon all our resources to help us
to meet its challenge.'
He also spoke of the "interim
mentality," a state of mind relat-
ed to the old "eat, drink and be
merry, for tomorrow we die" phi-
losophy, which he felt was one of
the main stumbling blocks 'this
generation would have to over-
confine their production to sa-
tiric impersonations of prom-
inant personages in the public's
eye and appropriately named
their society "Nimes," which
Since 1913 the sponsorship of
the Union Opera has been Mimes'
foremost undertaking. The Opera
improved yearly and in 1923
reached its' greatest heights by
playing in the New York Metro-
politan Opera House.
Besides sponsoring the Opera,
Mimes also staged several spring
dramatic productions on their
own well-equipped playhouse be-
hind the Union.

DISASTER seemed to strike
this flourishing organization when
the depression hit. The Opera
was called off until 1934 when
Mimes enlisted the aid of Miss
Sally Rand to engineer a revival
of the annual show.
During this times Mimes play-
house was removed to make way
for additional buildings around
the Union, so the Opera be-
came the group's primary con-

While some women in the Unit-
ed States are contemplating cab-
inet posts, women in Lebanon
were just last week granted the
right of franchise.
But not all Lebanese women will
vote. The law stipulates that in
order to vote, women must have
had a primary education. And once
the qualifications are filled, wom-
en must vote or else be subjected
to fines up to $27 as men are.
The move for women's suffrage
came when Prime Minister Khak-
id Shehab's government issued an
election decree which, in addition
to giving women the suffrage, cut
the number of parliamentary
seats almost in half and drastic-
ally revised the basis of represen-
PROF. MARBURY Efimenco of
the political science department
and specialist in the Near East
commented last night that "one
would have expected Lebanon to
take this step earlier since Leb-
anon is one of the more modern,
cosmopolitan countries of the Near
Efimenko explained that the
reformist decrees of the gov-
ernment were made possible by
the cabinet's six month dictorial
powers zranted to it by parila-
ment. "The emergency powers,
came as a result of long general
agitation for the removal of the
corruption in President Camille
Chamoun's .rule," .Efimenko
He went on to explain that
there are strong "political bosses"
in the Lebanese parliament and
that the small reformist groups
apparantly hope to "get rid of
there bosses and corruption" by
widening the franchise to women.
George Trug, Grad., from Leb-
anon commented that the new de-
cree is "a fine move." He expressed
the view that voting should be
compulsory because "it makes the
people more conscious of their
stake in government."
COFFEE HOUR-Faculty members take a few minutes off for
coffee in the newly opened sixth floor Haven hall coffee lounge.
Coffee, cake and other snacks are on sale for University staff mem-
bers. Though the lounge has only been open for a week and a
half-it is doing a soaring business. Located near the offices of the
psychology department, it is frequented by members of the Eng-
lish, history, psychology, sociology and political science staffs.
