MUSIC AND DRAMA:
Norton Describes Europe
By PAT ROELOFS
A three-and-a-half month Eu-
ropean tour made an intense im-
pression on Prof. Hugh Z. Nor-
ton of the speech department.
The trip included visits to mu-
sic and drama festivals in Milan,
Verona and Rome in Italy, Munich
in Germany and Salzburg in Aus-
* * * MA,
WHILE in Europe, Prof. Norton
and his, wife made their head-
quarters in Paris. Frequent visits
to the theater, including the Co-
medie Francaise with its classic
productions and modern theaters,
were an important part of their
visit. The writing of some of the
French dramatists he describes as.
"brilliant," including in this cate-
gory the works of Giradoux and
Contemporary French drama
reflects problems of the French,
a. terribly disillusioned people,
according to Prof. Norton. The
results of two world wars fought
within her borders has made a
bitter France, he observed, and
the artists of today are trying
to reflect the tragic feeling in
Although the European visit
was the first for the~Nortons, vis-
its to "out of the way islands in
the Caribbeans" and Mexico have
been a regular part of their lives.

WHEN at work at the Univers-
ity, Prof. Norton does more than
teach courses in theater. One of
his most enjoyable duties is serv-
ing for more than six hours each
week as a counselor for fresh-
men and sophomores. "It is by
learning tb understand' the prob-
lems that I can become a better
teacher, and by teaching that I
can be of better help to the stu-
dents" he analyzed.
Work on committees for can-
didates for doctoral degrees is
another task which requires

AS INTEREST rates throughout'
the country fell during the 1930's
and 1940's, the bonds were "re-
funded." They were bought back
from their holders, and new bonds
were issued at a lower interest

Quadrangle. In 1950, two sep-
arate bond issues were used to
finance the $5,700,000 structure.
= The first of the two bond issues
amounted to $5,700,000. But a large
part of this money-2,909,000 to
be exact-went to pay off a bank
loan which helped in turn to re-
finance some other dorms in 1946.
The rest of the money from
this first bond issue ($2,544,000)
provided part of the money to
build the new quad. To back up
this bond issue, the University
pledged the revenue of East Quad,
Victor Vaughan and Alice Lloyd
Then a second bond issue the
same year provided the rest of the
money ($3,300,000) to build South
Quad, and this issue was backed
by the revenue of South Quad it-
self. The extra cash collected be-
yond the cost of the quad, went
for a "debt service charge," a re-
serve cushion for annual payments
Tomorrow's article will discuss
effects of the financing on the
quad resident's wallet.

much of Prof. Norton's time. HeT
is at present serving on com-
mittees for students doing dis-
sertation work in fields related
to the theater, including mu-
sicology, English and fine arts.
The speech department's next
major production, scheduled for
January is the Moliere drama
"Tartufe," which Prof. Norton is
directing. The play, according to
the director, is a "period play,"
defined as a play written in the
past reflecting the time in which
it was written. ,
. The 17th century drama about
an imposter is a difficult produc-
tion, according to Prof. Norton,
for it must reflect the motivations
of the actors according to the so-
cial conditions, environment, even
the costumes of the day-"it must
reflect the feeling of that period."

these "Dead Sea Scrolls" Prof.
Kenneth Mendenhall of the
Near Eastern Studies depart-
ment traced the significance of
the manuscripts throughout his-
"No decisive conclusions can be
made yet," Mendenhall explained,
"since the discovery of the scrolls
has led to years of research."
Written in Hebrew and in Arama-
ic, the documents include a book
of 200 hymns of David, various
manuscripts, a book called "Wars
of the Children of Light and the
Children of Darkness," a frag-
mentary history of King Herod
the Great, and parts of Ecclesias-
teb and other Biblical books.

AS WELL as official records and
histories, some of the scrolls tell
of the day-to-day customs of the
Palestinians who probably wrote
them. Mendenhall pointed out
that their way of life was commu-

of the alphabet."

During the wqor, the Allied Air Forces desperately needed navigation watches that
would be water-tight. Omega technicians went to work and created the super water-resistant
Seamaster. More than 26,000 pilots put their Omega time-pieces to the greatest mass
test ever known - wearing them in the air at all. altitudes . . . in the hot, moist climate of
the tropics . . . in the dust laden desert storms . .. in freezing Arctic wastes.
The results are history. Today, the most enthusiastic owners of Omega are those
who tested them so thoroughly during the war.
Some of the specifications that make the Omega Seamaster Automatic one
of the finest in the quality watch market are briefed below.
1. Self Winding. The instant you put on your Omega it starts winding itself.
2. Reserve Winding. From that moment, with normal wrist movement your watch
stores up reserve power sufficient to keep it marking the precise time for 36 hours after
leaving the wrist.
3. Optional Winding. The Omega Seamaster can also be wound by hand like an
ordinary watch. The two winding systems function independently of each other.
4. Flawless Regularity. The tireless action of the "swinging weight" winds up
the spring of your Omega Automatic. This constant tension of the spring offers uniform
performance of the jeweled-lever escapement movement.
5. No Overwinding. A special steel stay guards the mainspring against
over-winding and breakage.
6. Large Balance with High-frequency Oscillations. This affords high precision and
