Hands, Voice Add To Actress' Charm


Plan for

Modern Design Marks Seminary

Enid Markey is a sparkling per-
sonality who uses her voice and
expressive hands to advantage.
Whether acting or conversing
Miss Markey's enthusiasm rises
quickly to the surface.
Appearing before Ann Ar'bor
audiences in "The Southwest Cor-
ner," by John Cecil Holm, Miss
Markey attributes her vocational
choice "to an aunt who wanted to
become an acress." "Even as a
tiny child," sherrecalled, "my aunt
began teaching me dramatic
When Miss Markey's family mov-
ed from the small town of Dillon,
Colo. to California the enterpris-
ing youngster promptly enrolled
in the Eagen Dramatic School.
Shortly after, she was discovered
by Hollywood.
By the time she was 14, the
young ingenue had become a lead-
ing lady of the silent screen. The
uninitiated are often surprised to
learn that the charming actress
was the first Jane in the "Tarzan"
filn series.
Lured by Stage
Still irk her teens, Miss Markey
responded to the lure of the legiti-
mate stage, and since that time {
has become both accomplished and
acclaimed as an actress.c
Her many Broadway perform-i
ances include the title role in "Mrs.i
Patterson," which opened in De-i
troit last season, and appearances
in such plays as "Harvey," "Happy
Birthday" and "Mrs. McThing."I
Although she enjoyed her workf
in television; Miss Markey express-i
ed the belief, "that it was the
hardest medium on a performer."
"You are limited both in spaceS
and expression," she explained.f
"Perhaps the most gratifying thing
about television," she continued,j
"is the way in which you are re-#
membered for a single perform-
Unlike many of her contempor-1
aries, Miss Markey believes that

dramatic school training is a dis-
tinct advantage. "Before," shel
stated, "there were many stock
companies which gave untrained
aspirants a chance to gain exper-
ience, but they don't exist any
Offers Suggestions
The actress also pointed out the
need for theatrical education
among young people. She offered
repertory companies as a possible
solution to the problem. "As it is,"
she commented, "TV and the mo-
vies are presenting 'a rather hit
and miss view of good theater.
Miss Markey is particularly en-
joying her portrayal of an unin-
tentional villain in "The South-
west Corner" because it; contains
so many moods and variations. She
laughed as she related an amusing
incident connected with the play.

Lit School Offers Courses
In American Study Area'

Two seminar courses have been
added to the curriculum of the
American Culture area program in
the Literary College, according to
Prof. Joe Lee Davis of the English
Prof. Davis, chairman of the
,Committee on the Interdepart-
mental Program in American Cul-
ture explained that the courses
will - be divided-one solely for
foreign students and one primar-
ily for American Studies majors.
The course serving foreign stu-
dents will be entitled "Introduction
to United States Civilization." It
is being given in answer to requests
by students from other countries
who wish a basic introduction to
this country's culture.
Variety of Viewpoints
The other course, "Conference
on American Culture" will be re-
quired of all students majoring in
the American Studies program.
Professors in various depart-

sented by the music school at 8:30

University Choir and soloists Phyl-
lis McFarland, soprano and Rob-
ert Kerns, baritone. Accompanist

ments will present a variety of cul-
tural viewpoints to the students.
Included in the staff of the com-
mittee are Prof. Robert C. Angell
of the sociology department; Prof.
Vernor W. Crane of the history de-
partment; Prof. William Fran-
kena, chairman of the philosophy
Other members of the commit-
tee are Prof. Joseph E. Kallenbach
of the political science depart-
ment; Prof. Howard H. Peckham
of the history department and
director of Clements Library; and
Prof. Adelaide A. Adams of the
fine arts department.
Many universities have a con-
centration in American Studies in
their curriculum. Prof. Davis stat-
ed that Prof. Howard Mumford
Jones of Harvard introduced an
American Studies course at the
University during the 1930's.
Taken In Senior Year
The "Conference" course will be
taken in the senior year by con-
centrators in the program.
The exact time and location of
both seminars has not been de-
cided. Prof. Davis stated that they
would be included in the supple-
mentary announcement of the new
time schedule. A full description
of the syllabus will also be included
in the schedule.i
All students interested in elect-
ing the seminar course as well as
those who wish to concentrate in
the program may contact Prof.
Davis, 1624 Haven Hall.

"There is one scene in the play
where Miss' LeGallienne converses
with her pet cat. After one New
York matinee two children came
backstage to visit me. The little
boy reported that he liked me very
much, but his eight year old sis-
ter announced honestly that she
thought the cat was the best."
Peeves Waste Tune
Miss Markey thought pet peeves
and complaints were "a waste of
time," and stated that people who
expected theater people to be odd
and unique were simply "being
Always enthusiastic about her
profession Miss Markey contended
that actors and actresses were
probably some of. the most human
people in the world.
"It takes a great deal of under-
standing on an actor's part before
he is able to identify himself with
any character," she concluded.
Panhel Rushee
Deadline Set E
Coeds interested in next fall's
sorority rushing may register with
Panhellenic Association between
today and the Saturday noon
Registration will be held today
and tomorrow between ,9:30 a.m.
and noon, and 1:30 and 5:30 p.m.,
and from 9:30 a.m. to noon on
Saturday, in the League Under-
graduate office.
Panhel rushing chairman Nancy
Jacquette, '56, attributed the new
spring registration period to Pan-
hel's decision to use an IBM ma-
chine during the rushing period.
The machine, Miss Jacquette
said, will sort and arrange invita-
tions to the rushing parties, saving
considerable time for Panhel per-
sonnel, and eliminating possibili-
ties of mechanical mistakes.
No rushees, she emphasied, may
register in the fall. Women now
on campus must complete arrange-
ments by Saturday, and next year's
new students will register for rush-
ing during the summer by mail.
Use of the IBM machine has made
the change necessary.

Each senator will be responsible
for cooperating with both Judi-
ciary andsherghouse director to
devise a "closing system" that will
be suitable for her particular dor-
mitory or house.
Will Begin Workshop
Senate and Judiciary will begin
a "workshop" to devise an im-
proved late per plan in the Fall.
Workshop will include deans,
house directors, and students.
When a plan has been devised, it
will be sent back to the Senate for
final approval. Senate expects the
plan to become effective by next
Women's Senate has also formu-
lated a plan to orientate women
students from other countries into
the.University next year. Called
"American Friends to Foreign Stu-
dents," about forty girls will be
appointed before the end of this
semester to individually help some
young woman from another coun-
try feel "at home" in Ann Arbor.
"American Friends" will help for-
eign students with anything from
shopping to finding an apartment.
Continue Through Year
This program, which will begin
Orientation Week, will .continue
throughout the entire school year.
180 girls from the University have
applied for this position, and inter-
views will be held in the League
next week.
Alicia Tarrant, '57, Carole Spar-
kie, '57, and Phyllis Philko, '58,
were elected senators-at-large of
Women's Senate yesterday. Bar-
bara Baker, '56, has been appoint-
ed Public Relations Chairman of
the League. The new senators-at-
large will head the Education, Cul-
ture, and Elections Study commit-
tees. They will also be members of
League Council.
Ruth Rossner, '56, guest speaker,
explained the new development
council to Women's Senate.
ALU' Hospital
P lans Tours '
University Hospital will hold its
annual Open House from 2 to 5
p.m. Sunday.
Tours will start from the sec-
ond level of the Outpatient Build-
ing continuing through the Main
Hospital and the new Kreske Med-
ical Research Building,
Special areas of the hospital not
usually open to the public, as the
human research laboratory, phar-
macy manufacturing, the Hospital
School, and the newly dedicated
Radiation Therapy Division will
be included in the tours. The ani-
mal operating room in Kresge will
also be open for inspection.
New equipment, new depart-
ments, and medical innovations
will be displayed.
As a part of National Hospital
Week, Hospital Day is to commem-
orate Florence Nightingale's birth-
day. Paying tribute to the famous
nurse of the Crimean War, doors
will be open in more than 7,000
hospitals across the nation.

After supper there is a moment
of relaxation, and then studies,
which are followed by evening
prayer and lyights out at 9:30. The
FaFathers believe that regular de-
mands on the students is the best
way to prepare them for future re-
Lack of Funds
. Seminary tuition is $300 a year.
"Lack of funds is always a prob-
lem," 'Father. Kirby said. The
school calendar, which observes
spring, summer and Christmas va-
cations, is much like the regular
high school calendar. Every first
Sunday of the month is reserved
for family visitors.
The study curriculum also fol-
lows high school patterns, except
that Latin and French are required
and there are no elective courses.
Many of the textbooks which stu-
dents will use later in their stud-
ies are in Latin and French..
13 Years of School
Seminary boys must undergo 13
years of rigorous training before
they may start their work in the

Holy Ghost Fathers Train
Boys for Missionlary Work.
The large group of low, modern buildings located just east of the
junction of Washtenaw Road and U.S. Highway 23 is one of the two
Holy Ghost Fathers Mission. Seminarys of its kind in the United States.
Chapel, kitchen, dormitories, faculty living quarters, hobby shop
and infirmary, all of which were designed by Charles D. Hannop of
Farmington, were completed in 1952.
Cost $500,000
The $500,000 which financed the building* of the seminary was
"raised by our own order-we don't have many money raising affairs,"
explained Reverend Dayton D. Kirby. "We hope also to have a new
gym sometime in the near future," he said.
The small modern chapel which forms one wing of the seminary
buildings has one wall of blue stained glass with red panes interspersed
throughout. As the sun falls in the west, blue light fills the stone chapel,
and red spots of light climb up the east wall, decorating sculptured
plaques portraying the Stations of the, Cross.
Common Quarters
Fathers have their quarters in the center of the spread-out school,
while the boys share sleeping cubicals in a wing which juts back from
the chapel, away from the road.
Behind the seminary is a swimming pool and a baseball diamond
used during recreation periods.
The boys themselves, ranging in age from 14 to 19, came from
middle and western states. Selection of students, most of whom are
from middle class families, is carefully managed. "Only ones who aspire
to study for priesthood," are selected, Father Superior Kirby com-
mented. Out of 63 boys who were
selected this year, 57 remain.
Rigorous Schedule
A daily schedule is followed by
students. Morning prayer and mass
begin the day at 6:00 a.m. After
breakfast there is a work period,
classes until lunch, which is pre-
ceded by a short recreation period.
The afternoon is filled with study
{ and classes and a long recreation

few of the Fathers have done some
preliminary work for masters' de-
