Paul Carr Plays Ex-Revolutionary

In the role of a former revolu-
tionary who became a policeman,
new Dramatic Arts Center actor
Paul Carr is currently making his
first appearance as a member of
the Center's company.
C a r r describes Commandant
Lanigan, whom he depicts in "The
Moon in the Yellow River" as a
"very strong,, authoritative man."
When Ireland's freedom from
Britain, which he conceived as the
object of the revolution, had been
obtained Lanigan joined the gov-
ernment forces. In the play he
finds himself in a position in which
he must kill his former friends.
Originally Planned Musical Career
His switch from early plans for
a musical career to a career in
acting Carr calls "my father's do-
His father, who had seen him in
several high school productions
read in a newspaper that a non-
professional group was casting for
a play called "A La Creole." He
suggested that his son try out for
a part and Carr got the play's ju-
venile lead.
After that, he said "I started get-
ting the bug. He appeared in a
number of plays in his native New
Orleans and then decided to go to
New York, where he studied with
the American Theater Wing.
Calls TV a Financial Boom
During this period he supported
himself largely by television work
which he calls "a big boon to the
actor in New York. The pay is
good, no matter what you do."
However, since few show~ have
more than fouror five rehearsals,
the last two of which must be spent
in setting up camera angles, Carr
said, "it is hard to get a good per-
He still wants to go back to mu-
sic 3 "for my own enjoyment," but
has given up professional plans.
The young actor still plays the
clarinet when he gets together with
friends. "My favorite occupation,"
he said, "is jamming."

Frog Fight
Two armies of frogs, one of
brown water frogs, the other
black land frogs, thousands
strong, are engaged in a pitched
battle for a swampland in
northern Malaya, according to
a United Press release.
The swamp battleground, al-
ready covered with thousands
of tiny corpses, is being ma-
nuevered over with almost hu-
man-like tactics. Superstitious
Malaya villagers, recalling a
similar battle between the frogs
on the eve of World War II, fear
the battle forecasts a crisis.
Showing Set

Three films on modern art will
be shown at 8 p.m. Tuesday in the

ground material of the artists.
In memory of the late Henri Ma-
tisse, a short on his artistry, "Ma-
tisse," will be shown.

pitulate the artist's work, "Picas-
so's Guernica" shows glimpses
from the early periods to the pres-

Students Unconcerned With
Michigan's Lack of Mascot

verine, and students "just don't
Results of a random survey con-
ducted along State Street and in
the League show that the major-
ity either don't know what a wol-
verine is or think they are extinct.
Marion Blakesly, '56, when ask-
ed if she thought that Michigan
should try to get a live mascot for
the zoo said simply "Why I like
the bear we have."
"Enhance School Spirit"
A group waiting for a ride in
front of the League was more en-
thusiastic. They felt that it would
"enhance school spirit. It's a good
Some, who were acquainted with
the habits of our school mascot,
were violently opposed to the plan.
"He is the fiercest animal pound
for pound in existence. If he were
caged it would remove his fight.
And, after all, it's the fighting
spirit that counts."

Election Plans
WASHINGTON (M)- Senate Re-
publican and Democratic cam-
paign strategists already are work-
ing on preliminary plans for the
1956 election even though the
1954 voting is barely over.
In one sense, the statistical edge
will swing to the Democrats two
years hence, since they will have
fewer seats at stake than the GOP.
This year it was just the oppo-
site, with the Democrats forced
to defend 22 seats while the Re-
publicans had 16 at issue.
Democrats made a net gain of
two seats in the Nov. 2 election,
barely enough to give them con-
trol of the Senate
Republican S e n a t e campaign
leaders agree that the statistical,
picture is not so favorable for them
in 1956 as it was this year.
But they say they are not down-
hearted about this, pointing out
that their party made a net gain
of five seats in 1950 when the same
class of senators was before the

more than a big weasel."

are expected to be in the SL elec-
tion Dec. 8 and 9.
To date 23 petitions have been
returned, but Ruth Rossner, '55,
in charge of the candidate training
program, estimates that by Mon-
day, the final day for petitioning,
12 more will have joined the race.
Miss Rossner says that SL's
move to defray candidates' ex-
penses up to $10 has been respon-
sible for adding at least eight can-
didates to the election.
To receive the aid candidates
must turn in itemized bills of their
expenses after the election.

New Late Per' Plan To Go
Before Women for Approval

Women's closing hours, long the
subject of hot debate, are being
considered for revision.
A committee of representatives
of major women's governing bod-
ies has formed a plan which, if
passed, will allow coeds a speci-
fied number of automatic late per-
missions during the week in addi-
tion to the regular curfews on other

ing in co-operation with Women's

The Campus Action Committee
of SL originally proposed the revi-
sion,eand presented the plan to
Women's Judic for action.
Prior to enacting legislation
which will put the revisal into ef-
fect, a committee was formed
which is drawing up a question-
naire to be presented to all Uni-
versity women.
This is to determine definitely
whether or not coeds are in favor
of these "late pers" which would
enable them to stay out later than
10:30 p.m. any night of their choos-

If results show that coeds are
behind the plan, it will be sent to
Women's Senate which has the
power to alter present women's
rules or change them entirely,
with the ultimate approval of the
Sue Klame, '55, SL member of
the committee, said, "There are
many problems to be solved be-
fore the plan will be able to take
effect. We will have to decide who
would close the dormitories during
the week and what kind of a sign-
out system would be best.
"But I feel that there's a need
for the proposed system. It would
relieve house-mothers and students
of the burden of deciding what is
sufficient reason for requesting and
granting special late permissions."

Michael Braun, '57, after being
informed of what a wolverine is
and that he is our school mascot,
said, "Fie on a wolverine. Let's get

"Aren't they extinct?" On learn-

in existence, she agreed with Jerry
Coon, '57, "It would be great!"
"Take It to Games"
At first, Arthur Van Dyk, Grad.,
had qualms about a live wolverine
on campus. After giving the mat-
ter serious thought, he decided,
"It might help school spirit. May-
be we could muzzle it and take
it to the games."
Student opinion was summed up
briefly by a girl in a yellow slick-
er crossing State Street. She ad-
justed her load of books and look-
ed up, bored. "A wolverine? Who
needs one!"
