THE MICHIGAN DAILY
iy To Present 'Marriage of Figaro'
Two meetings of seniors and
graduate students interested in
registering with the Bureau of
Appointments will be held, at 3
and 4 p.m. Tuesday in Auditorium
A, Angell Hall.
Prof. Glen Ludlow, director of
the Bureau of Appointments, em-
phasizes the benefits to be gained
Attending one of the meetings
and filling out the forms pro-
vided will enable a student to stay
registered with the Bureau for the
rest of his life. This means, he
said, 'that a student will always
be able to return to the Bureau if
he later ,decides he is dissatisfied
with his job.
Prof. Ludlow also noted that
companies much prefer each stu-
dent to have his academic, per-
sonal, and previous work record
before they meet with 'the stu-
dent. The Placement Bureau pro-
vides this as a free service.
The Bureau maintains files of
both business and schools. These
may be used by prospective em-
ployees to gain preliminary in-
formation about a company or

said, they or their professors are

Rise Stevens Enjoys Coill
By DOROTHEA STEUDLE
When Rise Stevens walks on
stage and begins to sing, the
audience sees a poised operatic
rara avis with the stage presence
of the most experienced actress.
But when Rise waits in her
dressing room, it is a different
story. A bad case of .nerve pre-
cedes every performance. "No
matter how many times I've per-
formed, I just can't get over it,"
"A college audience is the most
enthusiastic and also the most
critical," she explained. "Because
of this, opera singers consider
college audiences challenging and
Miss Stevens continued, "I hope
my 13-year-old son, Nicky, will
come to the University to study
law or something."
Confirming her statement that
she 'would retire from opera at
the age of 50, Miss Stevens ad-
mitted she might be coaxed to
sing at certain occasions. "But
definitely I'll retire," she said.
"Perhaps I can teach dramatics
here at the University, or better
yet, water-skiing, which I love,"
Besides her family, the opera
and water-skiing, Miss Stevens'
admits a. passion for cooking..
Born. in New York of Norwegian
and American parents, Miss Ste-
vens' special recipes which she
loves to share are flavored with'

r An increase of almost 50 per,
cent in seven years in the num-
- ber of families -using consumer
credit is caused largely by the:'
greater willingness of consumers"
to use credit, according to a Sur-
vey Research Center Study.
In 1949, 38 per cent of Ameri-
can families used consumer cre-
dit; today, 54 per cent do, almost:
half as many, the study found.
From'60 to 75 per cent of the
d increase is laid to consumers' will-
l ingness to go into debt.
Th Attribute Increase
The remainder of the increase
is attributed to changes in the
number of families in groups
g which had used credit in large
- amount prior to 1949. These
changes are caused by such fac-
s tors as income, home ownership,
z liquid asset holdings - and the
number of young married couples.
The. study indicated that the
relationship between use of credit,
and home ownership or size of In-
come has not changed sulstan-
- tially in the past seven years and
that the percentage of families
owning homes or having a certain
income that used credit did, not
vary sizably in that period..
Income is the decisive factor in
the amount of credit used, once
a family decides to go into debt;.
This is because of the fact that'
income is the source out of which
monthly payments are made.
Use More Credit
t Decline in income also affected
the size of debt incurred in at
least one year, 1955. Significant-
ly more credit was used by fami-
lies with .declining incomes than
by those whose income remained
more or less stable.
This was explained by the fact
that consumer optirism was
greater in 1955 than in previous
years and more people had re-
cently experienced rises in in-

LAST NIGHT! Pulitzer Prize Comedy
TEAHOUSE of the AUGUST MOON
Directed by TED HEUSEL
From the Ann Arbor News, Friday, Oct. 4:

"Lovely ladies, kind gentle-
men: Please to introduce my-
So spoke Sakini, the rap-
scallion interpreter of John
Patrick's "The Tea Hobfse of the
A u g U s t Moon," introducing
himself and his play to a large
audience at Lydia Mendelssohn
Theater last night.
It is fit and proper that this
review should begin with Saki-
ni, and that it should concern
itself primarily with Robert Lo-
gan's 'fine portrayal of-the role
in this opening production of
the Ann Arbor Civic Theater.
The adjectives "virtuoso" and
"triumphant" are reserved for
the sort of performance that
Ipgan gave last evening; a con-
trolled, yet ebulliently lively
performance which avoided the
destructive pitfalls for ham-
ming and mugging which the
role offers in abundance, and
concentration with charm, dig-
nity and subtle strength upon
the vital business ofmaking an
enchanted home for some oth-
erwise unenchanting banalities.,
Because Logan's Sakini suc-
ceeded so well, the amateur
production is a very funny and
very genuine success. The Tea
House, under Sakini's magic
touch, becomes an Okinawan
Forest of Arden, tantalizing,
wispy and unreal-a fairy place
where anything can and does
happen and where the trite
message of the plot assumes the
immediately acceptable propor-
tions of the moral fable.
Having found his ace in Lo-'
gan, Director Ted .Heusel has
expertly backed his hand with
a masterful job of staging,
beautiful in its attention to de-
tail, its simple settings and bal-
anced groupings, and with'sev-
eral excellent performances
