'CONCEPT, NOT DETAIL:
Costume Designer Describes Objectives

<+> :

By MIKE KRAFT

Pushing aside the wig and comb
in front of her, costume designer
Emma Mellincamp lit a cigarette
and started to describe her cos-
tuming for the forthcoming
drama season.
Referring to 'Tiger at the
Gates," the major costuming ef-
fort of the season, the University
graduate noted that "modern aud-
iences are more interested in con-
cept rather than detail."
Exact historical authenticity in
costuming is not being strived for,
she said since "the play Is 20th
century philosophy. of the past,
and not a historical document.
Therefore, the costumes ought not
to be strictly authentic, even if
we knew exactly how the Greeks
dressed."
'Illegitimate' Approach
"Twenty years ago," the design-
er pointed out, people didn't think
this was a legitimate approach.
Musing over some of her cos-
tuming efforts of the past festivals
series, including "12th Night,"
"Captain Brasshound's Convers-
ion" and last year's "Gentlemen,
the Queens," she said, "We're in a
transition period away from strict
historical authenticity to costume
designs which conform more to
modern ideas of basic simplicity."
Discussing costuming as part ofJ
a production, Mrs. Mellincamp de-
scribed it as "just another means
of interpreting what the director
is after.'" She explained that this
Was a reason why costuming var-
ies on different productions of
the same play.
No 'Breathing Spells'
She mentioned how the Detroit1
studio which she runs with her{
husband, Robert Mellincamp sup-;
plied costumes for over half a

dozen stagings of "12th Night"

for each one.

Homecoming
Petitions Due
Tomorrow is the last day to
petition for Homecoming Central
Committee Chairmanships, accord-
ing to Co-chairman Joe Sherman,
'58.
Positions available are: display,
publicity, decorations and tickets,
all co-chairmanships, and finance,
secretary, building and grounds,
and programs and patrons, all
single chairmanships.
All petitions for Homecoming
chairmanships are due tomorrow;
they will be Available in the Stu-
dent Offices of the Union and at
the Undergraduate Offices of the
League.
Interviewing of prospec-
tive chairmen will begin tomorrow
and continue through Wednseday.

It is from their studio near De-
troit that the husband-wife team
handles most of their work which,
"unfortunately has no breathing
spells."
Robert Mellincamp, who form-
erly taught at the University is
designing the sets for this year's'
Play series as he has in preceding
years.
The designer described costum-
ing as requiring "extreme imagi-
nation," and said it's necessary
to "ride herd all the way from the
first sketch to the last stitch."
"However," she smiled, "No-
body wants todwork hard enough
these days to do costumes."
U' Introduces
Meteorology
A broad program in applied
meteorology that touches upon a
wide range of activities in many
fields has been introduced at the
University's College of Engineer-
ing, I " eorge G. Brown has
anno. ,eci.
The program deals with meteor-I
ology as it applies to engineering,
medicine, agriculture, architec-
ture, conservation, and a host of
other areas, Dean Brown said.
Eleven courses in meteorology and
the master's degree are now offer-
ed, he said, and research projects
involving specialists in engineering,
medicine, botany, ecology, bio-
chemistry and public health are
in progress.
The program answers a need for
education and research in applied
meteorology in the face of a
growing awareness of the vital
:ales that weather and climate play
in aiilaost every area of human en-
deavor, Dean Brown said.

Depression
Impossible'
- Werntette
"The United States will never
have another major depression,
the national income will double
within 25 years and the average
per capita income will double in
40 years," according to University
business professor Phillip Wer-
nette.
"It is true that this statement
sounds just like those made in
1929, which turned out to be hope-
lessly wrong," he admitted, "but
today's situation is different in
key respects."
Prof. Wernette spoke last night
before the Money and Banking
Workshop, at their meeting held
yesterday by the Federal Reserve
Bank of Minneapolis.
He pointed out five conditions
which produced the disastrous con-
traction in money and bank de-
posits: Bank failures; currency
withdrawals; gold outflow; inac-
tion by the Federal Reserve Sys-
tem; and absence of stabilizing
fiscal and debt management poli-
ties.
"Today things are vastly differ-
ent. Bank failures are almost un-
heard of; currency withdrawals
are unlikely; gold outflows-if they
occur-can be controlled; the
Federal Reserve is alert to pre-
vent both deflation and inflation,"
he declared,
In addition, he noted, "Fiscal
policy and debt management pro-
vide powerful stabilizing forces,
and private industry operates
steady investment policies."
24th Annual

vice.

Zumberge of geology will speak!
