Ballou Tells
Experiences
As Designer
By JEAN HARTWIG
Ballou, scenic designer for the
current Drama Season, began his
career at the age of 15 in a small
Eastern playhouse out of "sheer
nerve, not knowledge."
Dressed in an olive drab cordu-
roy sports coat over a red T-shirt
and khaki-colored cotton trousers
with buckskin desert boots, Ballou
explained'that he designed his first
set because he felt he could "do
it better" than the official designer
was doing.
Ballou, who prefers not to use his
first name, Tex, was born inthe
Philippines where his father was'
a United States Army officer. Dur-
ing his early years, his family
lived in many areas of the country,
due to his father's occupation.
His professional career as a
scenic designer began in 1946 at
the end of a stint in the armed
forces. From then until 1952 he
was the head of the scenic depart-
ment of the Goodman Theater.
During the summer of that year
he designed the set for a summer
opera at the University-sponsored
National Music Camp at Inter-
lochen, Mich.
"Flowering Peach" by Clifford
Odets, "This Thing Called Love,"
"Wake Up Darling" and Sean
O'Casey's "Red Roses for Me" are
included in the New York experi-
ence of Ballou, who also designs
costumes.
"The most successful designer
is the one who designs not too
perfectly for the play. He has to
draw attention to himself in order
to be recognized," he said.
"You are a designer," he said.
"You can be taught certain me-
chanics, but you have to be a de-
signer inside. It is the hardest job
in the world."
With a broad grin lighting his
face, Ballou said he was very
pleased to be in Ann Arbor. Usually
in New York at this time of year,
he is especially delighted with the
spring blossoming of the trees.

Oregon Students Protest
Nuclear WeaponsTests

Growing concern among Univer-
sity of Oregon student and faculty
over nuclear weapons testing made
itself evident last week..
At least two petitions were cir-
culated, and a panel discussion,
according to the Oregon Daily
Emerald, attacked Atomic Energy
Commission policy.
The petitions-worded different-
ly but essentially the same-both
called for nuclear tests to be dis-
continued. They were circulated to
a number of organizations April
24.
Plans have been made, the
Emerald said, to collect the peti-
tions soon and send copies to state
and national government officials,
including President Eisenhower, as
well as to heads of the Soviet
government.'
In the panel debate E. S. Wen-
gart, head of Oregon's political
science department,' and R. T.
Ellickson of the physics depart-
ment specifically attacked the
Prof. Dunham
Writes Book
"Community Welfare Organiza-
tion, Principles and Practice," a
textbook by Prof. Arthur Dunham
of the Social Work School, has
been published recently.
The fulfillment of health and
welfare needs in communities and
larger areas of population on' the
state, national and international
levels is dealt with in community
organization, according to. Prof.
Dunham. Community development
in newly developing countries is
the subject of one of the chapters
in his book.
"Community development is one
of the most exciting and rewarding
frontiers on which community
organization is active today," Prof.
Dunham said.
His book is intended to serve 'as
a textbook for graduate students
of social work and as a guide for
social welfare workers.

Atomic Energy Commission, which,
they said, "has discredited itself."
The Daily Emerald reported that
Wengart called the AEC "not a fit
agency to advise us on what's
going on."
(At one time, the Emerald ex-
plained, the AEC announced that
such explosions could not be de-
tected outside a relatively small
range. Later, it was shown that
explosions of this sort could be
detected as far as 3,000 miles
away.)
"When we look at testimony of
such persons as Louis Strauss,"
Ellickson added, "we should con-
sider what axe they have to grind."
For instance, Ellickson said, he
would not go to the head of a
cigarette manufacturing company
for advice on whether or not to
quit smoking.
