AUDITIONS TODAY, TOMORROW:
Union Holds Opera Tryout Sessions

* , *

By JOEL BERGER
' Tryout sessions for the 1953
Union Opera today and tomorrow:
in Rm. 3G of the Union may re-
veal another Opera star such as:
Governor Thomas E. Dewey of
New York, Valentine Davies, pro-
ducer of "Miracle of 34th Street"
or Lionel Ames, one of vaudeville's
female impersonators.
Dewey made Opera history in
1923, when he portrayed an Irish
country gentleman in "Top O' the
Mornn'."
- *
FIVE HUNDRED students tried
out for parts in the 1925 produc-
tion, "Tambourine," written by
Davies and Walter G. Everett.
During the road tour, the cast
was received by President Calvin
Coolidge at the White House and
was feted elsewhere in Washing-
ton, D.C.
Ames, who once ran as an op-
ponent to Miss America in the
Atlantic City beauty contest,
was the female lead in the leg-
endary 1923 production of "Cot-
ton Stockings" which toured 11
states.and climaxed its run with
a performance in New York's
Metropolitan Opera House.
An 80 year old University alum-
nus created a nation-wide contro-
versy over this show when he ob-
jected to the sub-title "Cotton
Stocking-Never Made a Man
Look Twice." Because of this pub-
licity, the show was a sellout in
every city it played.
Another famous member of the
Opera during its long history was
Jay Gorney, musical director of
a major Hollywood studio. During
the depression he wrote "Brother,
Can You Spare a Dime," thel
theme of the early 1930's.
Chester Campbell, bus iness
manager of the Chicago Tribune1
and Hughston McBain, presidents
of a Windy.City department store
are also Opera alumni. Billy Mills,
who wrote the music for the, 1915
Opera "All That Glitters," is now
orchestra leader on the Fibber
McGee and Molly show.

Chester Bowles To Open
With Lecture Tomorrow

Recognized through-out theI
world for his work in India, Ches-I
ter A. Bowles will begin this year's
lecture series speaking on, "Our
Best Hope for Peace in Asia," at
8:30 p.m. tomorrow in Hill Audi-
torium.
Bowles spent two years as Am-
bassador to India. During this time
he worked closely with the Indian
people and gained an understand-
ing of them by travelling through-
out Asia.
IT IS SAID that he spent as
much time touring as he did at
his desk at the American Embas-
sy in New Delhi. Covering a total
of some 60,000 miles in India and{
an additional 20,000 miles in
Southeast Asia, Bowles visited
hundreds of villages and spoke on
many occasions to students, fac-
tory workers, peasants and busi-
nessmen.
By the first hard knowledge he
gained in these areas, Bowles

was able to aid in drafting pro-
posals to solve problems faced
by India and Asia. During his
term, a major Point Four pro-
gram was developed which is
now playing a part in building
the new Indian'democracy.
Returning to this country
Bowles settled in his Connecticut
home where he is witing a new
book on Asia scheduled to be pub-
lished this fall.
