Grad Student Writes, Directs Own Play
By TAMMY MORRISON
The speech department's upcom-
ing production of "My Very Own"
marks several "firsts."
It's the first time a graduate
student has directed a full-length
It's the first time a playwright
has directed her own Hopwood
- award-winning play while still a
And it's the first play that Bev-
erly Canning, Grad, ever wrote.
* Attractive, dark - haired Miss
Canning, who hails from Maine
and Baltimore, started the play
before she came to the University
to work on her doctorate in speech.
She finished it while enrolled in
Prof. Kenneth T. Rowe's playwrit-
ing class last year.
It won a major Hopwood drama

Miss Canning graduated from
Goucher college in 1949 and re-
ceived her master's degree from
Johns Hopkins in 1953. Her ma-
jor interest lies in teaching speech
in college. She had some experi-
ence in this field at Goucher and
hopes to continue it.
Her play, which has an all-fe-
malercast, concerns threengenera-
tions of one closely-knit family.
The plot revolves around the third
generation, which is trying to as-
sert its independence.
Miss Canning first got the idea
for "My Very Own," opening at 8
p.m. today at Lydia Mendelssohn,
while teaching and directing at
Goucher. "Goucher is a girls'
school," she said, "and the prob-
lem of finding a play for an all-
female cast is acute.
"I decided that I'd try to write
She first came to the University
in the summer of 1953, then taught
for a year. She returned in the
summer of 1954 to complete work
on her doctorate. Last year, she
was a counsellor in Alice Lloyd
Last fall, the speech department
decided to initiate a new policy
of allowing a graduate student to
direct a full-length production.
Miss Canning applied, and she and
her play were chosen.
The playwright-director has al-
ways been interested in the thea-
ter, from the time she took danc-
ing lessons as a little girl. She's
done some acting as a student, but
She's enjoyed it, and feels that
anybody who wants to direct needs
to know about acting. "The more
you know about the theater, the
better prepared you are to direct."
Miss Canning feels that there
are both advantages and disadvan-
tages to a playwright directing his
(or, in this case, her) own play.
"One advantage is that you
learn a lot about the play from
working so closely with it," she
said. "Some lines that look fine
on paper just don't sound right
when spoken. In that case, you're
around to rewrite.
"But on the other hand, you're
always worried about being ob-
jective enough." She smiled, "I
sometimes feel sort of schizophre-

Burma's policy of neutralism is
calculated to bring world peace,
Dwa Mya Sein, Rangoon Univer-
sity history professor, said in a lec-
ture given yesterday.
"My country doesn't believe in
passive existence," she explained.
However, Burmese prime minister
U Nu feels that only through fol-
lowing a neutral policy can the
necessary understanding between
nations be achieved.
In order to further the idea of
knowledge through understanding
U Nu has traveled extensively.
At the present time Burma is
working toward peace even though
many internal problems exist. Miss
Sein cited the problem of Com-
munist resistance groups and
changes in the nation's economy
as being the most difficult to solve.
"It is difficult to deal with the
Communists," she said, because
many of these people fought with
the anti-Japanese resistance dur-
ing the war. She added that the
peoples resistance groups are plit
by ideological differences.
In order to cope with falling
rice prices new industries are be-
"Even though we need factories
and industrial development we still
hope to preserve our traditional
culture, and avoid the evils of an
industrial revolution," she remark-
Citing the spiritual problem
along with political and economic
ills, Miss Sein discussed the re-
vival of Buddahism. U Nu believes
the hear of the nation's problems
are found in moral degeneration.
As a result of the. Prime Minis-
ters concern, a revival of Budda-
Miss Sein added that all reli-
gions were encouraged to flourish
since Burma is a secular country.
Both Moslems and Christians have
recently been active in winning
Miss Sein's talk was the last in
a series of six lectures sponsored
by the Japanese Institute of Far
Eastern Studies. These lectures
were given for the purpose of pro-
moting better understanding be-
tween the United States and Bur-
John Schubeck, '57, and Ruth
Cortright, '58, were selected to be
the University's representatives in
the Hearst Oratorical District con-
Schubeck won the nomination
in the junior-senior division for his
speech on John Adams entitled
"Barbed in a Garden." Schubeck
also won the campus contest last
Miss Cortright, winner among
the freshman-sophomore contest-
ents, also spoke on John Adams.
Her speech was entitled "A Man
Stood Up To Preach."
The two Michigan representa-
tives will compete against speakers
from other colleges in the Detroit
district early in May.
Other contests are being held
now in the district comprised of
out-state colleges. The winner in
the outstate district and the win-
ner from the Detroit area will then
represent Michigan in the national
finals of the Hearst Contest.
Last year's winner from the De-
troit area, Roger Lindemann of
Wayne, went to the national finals
before he was defeated.
