Student, Professor Play in
Shaw's 'Arms and the Man'

By PHYLLIS LIPSKY
A student and a professor, nei-
ther of them actors by profession,
play the man servant and the
maidservant in the Dramatic Arts
Center's "Arms and the Man."
Elaine Swire, '57, plays Louka,
"a fiery girl trying to rise out of
her situation."
Nichola, the man servant who
gives up all claim to Louka as his
fiancee, when she gets a chance to
marry into the nobility is played
by Prof. Wilfred Kaplan of the
Mathematics department.
A small role, that of the Rus-
sian officer who walks on in the
first act is played by Gabor von
Varga, '57.
In Detective Story
Miss Swire who doesn't know
bif I want to take it up as a pro-
fession" has acted in the Student
Player production of "Detective
9 Story" as well as with a non-pro-
fessional summer stock group.
Her interest in the theater stems
' from a role she had as leader of
the Greek chorus in "Promethius
Wessinger, Health
Officer, Dies at 94
John A. Wessinger, Ann Arbor
Health Official Officer from 1904
to 1950 died today at the age of 94.
Dr. Wessinger formed one of the
first Municipal Health Clinics in
Michigan. He gained prominent
attention when he prohibited pas-
sengers from getting off the Tole-
do train in Ann Arbor during the
1916 small pox epidemic in Toledo,
Ohio.

Bound," before coming to the Uni-
versity.
' As a freshman she had planned
to major in psychology with an
eye toward social work. The stu-
dent actress has not as yet decided
to give up this plan in favor of
acting.
She describes the role of Louka
as an important one because it of-
fers contrast to Raina the heroine.
The servant girl dislikes the false-
hood and affectation she sees
around her, Miss Swire said.
"Pure Chance"
"Pure chance," Prof. Kaplan
claims, brought him his role in
"Arms and the Man." Although
theater has not been one of the
mathematicians more recent in-
terests he had several years ex-
perience at a summer camp where
dramatics was a major activity.
He became interested early this
semester in the development of the
Dramatic Arts Center and men-
tioned his dramatic experience to
a friend.
"Before I knew what happened,"
he said, "I was tried out and fitted
for a costume."
The character of Nichola, he
said, can be developed along two
lines. In the present production he
feels the cold blooded manipulator
has been emphasized.
The man servant can also be
viewed, he explained, as someone
with a heart and soul who is sim-
ply very realistic about how much
he can obtain for himself.
"Arms and the Man" by Bernard
Shaw, now in its fourth week at
the Center, closes Sunday.

Married Students' Co-ops
Still Termed 'Experiment'

Although only the posts for the
meters are now up, Lt. Harrison
Schlupe of the Ann Arbor Police
Department said yesterday park-
ing tickets are being issued to cars
parked over two hours in front of
the meter sites.
Located on both sides of May-
nard from William to Jefferson
and on the west side of S. State
from William to the Union, the
meters are expected to collect two
dollars each weekly. That is what
is collected by other local park-
ing meters.
Paying off the initial investment
within a year through collections,
each meter cost $60 while its stand
and installations costs are less.
Four 15-minute meters will soon
be installed by the Union to facili-
tate loading and unloading of cars
there, Lt. Schlupe continued. All
other new meters in the area will
be ,two-hour meters.

p.m. today at the Student Offices
in the Union.
These tickets will be resold at

p.m. tomorrow in the Union lobby.

By MARY ANN THOMAS
"Students from the University
should be noted for being interna-
tionally minded," according to
Herman G. Raju, Administrative
Assistant of the International Cen-
ter.
Suggesting a field of educational
specialization similar to those of
famous American and European
universities, the young Indian be-
lieves Michigan should make use
of its many facilities that develop
student leadership.
"Ann Arbor should be the place
that foreign countries send their
students to learn international lead-
ership," he explained, adding, "The
International Center can offer a
guide to the creation of interna-
tional understanding and appreci-
ation."
Help Integration
Commenting on the difficulty for-
eign students have in meeting
Americans, Raju suggested that
the faculty could help this situation
by sponsoring informal discussions
between students of all nationali-
ties.
"Students as a group may resist
integration, but not as individuals,"
he observed.
Born in Bangalore, India, the
new Administrative Assistant is a
colorful addition to the Interna-
tional Center staff.
Following his father's wishes
Raju had entered pre-med school
in Madras, but soon found that a
doctor's life was not for him. In
1950 Raju came to the United
States to obtain a degree in busi-
ness administration.
Started as Student Assistant
While studying at the University

Operating as the only coopera-
tive apartment house for married
students, Brandeis House at 803
Kingsley now houses five couples.
Still termed an "experiment" by
Inter-Cooperative Council Execu-
tive Secretary Luther Buchele, the
co-op provides three-room apart-
ments to residents for approxi-
mately $75 a month.
Commenting on the price of
apartments, Buchele estimated si-
milar non-co-op units in this area
rent for about $90.
The couples do an average of

eight hours work a week on gener-
al upkeep and repairs. A system
has been set up by which a presi-
dent, treasurer and committee
chairmen allot specific jobs to res-
idents and handle financial mat-
ters.
The five couples, with a total of
six children, include representa-
tives of various national and ra-
cial groups. Lygeria, Ceylon, a
Japanese-American couple, a Ne-
gro-American couple and an Am-
erican couple provide the divirsi-
f ication.

Novelty Urged
By Director
"All characteristics of communi-
cation systems which encourage
novelty or new ideas are of over-
whelming importance," Dan Lacy,
Managing Director of the Ameri-
can Book Publishers Council, said
yesterday.
Speaking in the second of the
two part William Warner Bishop
Lecture series under the auspices
of the Department of Library Sci-
ence, Lacy went on to say that
our present mass-media cannot
fulfill this need because they must
appeal to a large audience simul-
taneously.
"Unless an idea is already
known," he continued, "it is almost
impossible for it to command at-
tention on mass media."
Wolverine Club
To Provide Buses
Buses to Columbus for the Ohio
State football game will be pro-
vided by the Wolverine Club for
$8.25.
Signup will be from two to five
p.m. Monday through Thursday at
the Administration Bldg.
Buses will leave Ann Arbor at
12:15 p.m. Nov. 19 and will return
from Columbus at 12:15 p.m. No-
vember 21.
At the same time, students may
also sign up for the "Willowhop-
pers." These buses will be provided
for students traveling to the air-
port November 24.

Raju, who likes to be called by his
first name, started working at the
International Center as a student
assistant.
"However," he smiled, "at the
beginning of this year my title was
changed to Activities Assistant, but
with no increase in pay."
His present post, in which he
succeeds George Petrossian who
resigned this summer, involves a
variety of duties.
Primarily handling public rela-
tions between Michigan's 1,000
foreign students and the University
and community, Raju helps the
special international student orien-
tation program, conducts tours,
provides foreign-American student
integration programs and counsels
foreign students and their clubs.
Has Traveled Widely
A quiet person who believes in a
thorough education, Raju has un-
dertaken learning about the United
States as completely as he has his
studies. Talking about his exper-
iences in this country and the 13

others he has visited is one of his
favorite pastimes.
"I was more American back
home," he commented, "than I am
after being here three years. I
thought the gay, carefree life de-
picted in the movies and Mickey
Spillane novels was true," he ex-
plained.
"I am beginning to understand
American life now," he smiled,
"but I still can't appreciate Amer-
ican food." Commenting on his im-
pression of life in .the United
States, Raju complained that it
was too artificial and mechanical.
Dislikes Artificiality
"A person here doesn't do a thing
because he wants to but because
he has to do it," he observed, "and
Americans always want fast re-
sults-quantity instead of quality."
Contrary to the impression that
his comments give, Raju hastened
to assure that he likes his life in
the United States. A person with
extremely high ideals, hercom-
pares everything to the perfection
he would like them to attain.
