ACTRESS, DIRECTOR, TEACHER:
Theater Interest First Love of Baird

Of Defense Organization

ELI.'..ED

By HARRY STRAUSS
What does an actress and teach-
er of acting and directing classes
do in her spare time?
"Go to as many plays as pos-
sible," answers Prof. Claribel Baird
of the speech department.
"I don't have much time for
hobbies. No knitting, or puppets
and such. Just theater-going."
Duty and Enjoyment
Prof. Baird noted that on a ten-
day trip to New York, she saw 10
plays. "Of course, it's part duty.
But xI enjoy it-or I wouldn't be
in it."
The "it" refers to the years Prof.
Baird has spent teaching countless
budding actors and actresses and
directors. She first came to the
University as guest director for 10
successive summers until, in 1948,
she joined the permanent faculty.
During her Ann Arbor stay, the
yersatile instructor has appeared
in 20 plays "of some stature" and
many more were under her direc-
tion. "But if I had to make a
choice, I would rather teach than
direct. I'm interested in the indi-
vidual, in the development of the
individual."
Students Have Artistic Bentu
In her contacts with theater
students, Prof. Baird comments,
"I would say the students are pret-
ty much those with artistic bent
and with a keen interest in the
theater, though only a few hope
to go into acting as a'profession."
"I don't find students chafing
under prerequisites to advanced
courses," she continued. "I believe
they are very serious, as shown by
their tremendous enthusiasm for
the laboratory playbills.
"They are interested in the ar-
tistic "hole" as against the com-
monly held idea of exhibitionism."
Beginners Too Emotional
Prof. Baird noted that the first
problem for the beginners in the
acting classes is trying to make
them see that the "art of acting
demands ability to be eclectic, to
economize."
The tendency is great, she add-
ed, for the novice to begin acting
"all over the place. He needs, at

4) Civil defense is a passive type
of defense and lies outside-the mil-
itary, which is concerned with ac-f
tive action in the form of inter-i
ception and retaliation. Since thet
military is a government agency,f
citizens feel that its announced
policy is all that is needed.
Enemy Defense
Probably the strongest argument
for a well-organized civil defense
program is that the enemy also isE
concerned with defense. The ene-
my, say our top strategists, as welli
as being able to affect our ability7
to deliver bombs on selected tar-t
gets, can favorably affect her own
vulnerability to our retaliation.
That is to say Russia can plan<
a civil defense setup that will re-1
duce considerably any qualms ofs
possible retaliatory measures fol-

lowing an attack on the United
States.
In addition to saving many lives
and much property, a stronger civ-
il defense program will diminish
the enemy's ability to defeat us
and even reduce her desire to start
war.
CD experts say that such a pro-
gram will help deter an attack in-
asmuch as any enemy victory
would not be as easy. Enemy strat-
egists would "think twice" before
striking; not just "once" secure'
in the knowledge that America was
lacking adequate civil, or passive,
defense.
In short, it is said that the Unit-
ed States could have more confi-
dence in its strategic massive re-
taliation if it were coupled with
a capacity to also absorb some
punishment.

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN

-Daily-by John Hirtzel
PROF. CLARIBEL BAIRD and Sam Siporin, student director,
discuss a scene from a forthcoming speech department playbill.

the very first, to get rid of excess
movement."
Lighting another cigarette, she
said that "excess energy and move-
ment and facial expression is just
turned on like a faucet, having
nothing to do with the play.
"The idea is to build character-
ization out of script rather than
from a whole lot of chaotic move-
ments or a copy of a cinema per-
formance. I am often asked 'Who.
would play this role in the movie?'
but I refuse to answer this ques-
tion. A facile, glib copy is given
by the student rather than an at-
tempt at creating the playwrite's
character."
Prof. Bair picked up a porcelain
statue by Martini from her desk,
a vividly pictured knight in armor
with his visor down. "I showed
this to my class this morning so
they could see how much can be
expressed with a minimum of line,
by looking at the economy in this
piece of porcelain. The figure is
quite expressive though the face
is not seen." ,
"Much action, like the raised,
eyebrow and such, just won't car-
ry," she emphasized.
Drama Department Secondary
Answering a question on the
possible formation of a drama de-

partment (as suggested by play-
write Elmer Rice after a stay here
last semester), Prof. Baird said
she thinks it does not matter
where dramatic activity functions,
in the speech or English depart-
ments or elsewhere.
"Given the functional physical
facilities, interest and a serious
group of students, good theater
will come out of it," she asserted.
Thinking of today's theater
world, the energetic, young-look-
ing woman remarked "we don't
have people of the stature of Dor-
othy Gish, Helen Hayes and Kath-
.rine Cornell. It is a woman's the-
ater today though, come to think
of it, as opposed to young men in
the theater."
Married to Prof. William Hal-
stead, also of the speech depart-
ment, Prof. Baird said, with a
broad smile, that she had "finally
capitulated to TV and am trying
to educate myself to the theatrical
aspects of television."
"I try and act in a play once a
year or so to keep prepared to
teach acting, and not ,to keep
away from the experience. This
prevents one from becoming too
theoretical."
"Facing the problem with stu-
dents is good for their experience
too," Prof. Baird concluded.
Wilder Play

Our Teeth" will open a four-per-
formance run at 8 p.m. tomorrow
