"foreigners were given a consider-t

cheological work in various sections1

Big Attendance
Seen for Play
Opening Today
Advance Sales Forecast
Increased Audience 'for
'Berkeley Square'
With a large attendance forecast
for each performance, the fourth of-1
fering of the Repertory Players, John
Balderston's "Berkeley Square," a .
play which in New York was one of
the outstanding stage presentations
of the past several seasons, will open
tonight for a four-day run at the
Lydia Mendelssohn theatre in the
In the play, distinctly different
from the Players' previous offerings,
the author plays a trick with time
.and space. The story of "Berkeley
Square," based on a posthumous
novel by Henry James, centers around
a young American architect who in-1
herits an old English house in Berke-
ley Square, London, a house in which
one of his ancestors played an im-,
portant role. When he takes up his
residence in his new acquisition, he
discovers that he can walk back and
forth through time, that he can step
into the shoes of his ancestor and
live the life which that 'man lived in
the eighteenth century. The Bal-
derston, in his play, has given plot
enough to insure its success.
For the production of "Berkeley
Square," Valentine B. Windt, the di-
rector, has brought together one of'
the most talented casts of actors to
appear in a summer play. ' Alan
Handley-Paolo in "Paolo and Fran-
cesca"-plays the part of the Ameri-
can architect, Peter Standish. Harry'
Allen, noted for his part in "Mr. Pim
Passes By," is the American ambas-
sador. Frederic Crandall, who playe
Giovanni in "Paolo and Francesca,"
is in the cast, as well as Martha
Ellen Scott, Lauren Gilbert and Her-
bert Milliken-Mr. Pim of "Mr. Pim
Passes By."
The play will be continued through
Saturday, with performances each
evening set for 8:30 o'clock.
Education Conference
For Today Postponed
The 4 o'clock education school
conference for today has been post-
poned because of the absence of
Coach Fielding H. Yost from the

held because of the meetings of the
Educational Legislation conference.
Pi Lambda Theta will hold its
initiation in the chapel of the League
building at 5:30, to be followed by a
banquet at 6:15 o'clock.
In his lecture yesterday, Prof. O.
W. Stephenson, of the education
school, pointed to .the popular lack
of understanding of America pre-
valent in southern Europe. New
York, Chicago, and Detroit are the
only cities in America familiar to
the peoples there, he declared.

'Economics of Depres-

Demands of two groups must be

a constructive solution to the pres-

rector of the state survey of country,
township and school district govern-
ment, told the educational confer-
ence yesterday.
The one group consists of 'prop-

the cost of government regardless
of the effect on functions or services
of governn'ent, and the other is
composed of tax spenders who seek
to preserve the standards prevalent
during the time of prosperity, he
Mr. Upson estimated that during
prosperity about 14 per cent of the
income of the nation was spent for
the maintainance of local, state and
national governments and services
which they performed.
Tax Burden Heavy
At present approximately one-
third of the nation's income goes to
pay taxes. This is due to the depres-
sion, he said. Lack of cooperation
in the large districts was scored by
Mr. Upson, and he stressed the need
of thorough study of governmental

the project. The tags will be on sale
along the diagonal and in front of
the chief buildings.

vides a vacation for more than 400
underprivileged boys, from 10 to 16
years of age, who come from the in-

Prof. F. N. Menefee, of the engi-
neering school, stated yesterday that
"the camp is organized to do two
things, first, to render a much-
needed social service to under-priv-
ileged boys by bringing them into
personal contact with college men
interested in their welfare, and sec-
ond, to give undergraduate and col-
lege men an opportunity to under-

WASHINGTON, July 19.-(AP)-
President Hoover today again post-
poned signing the great relief bill,
but he probstbly will make it law to-
orrow--opening the outstretched
hand of the Federal government to
aid with $2,122,000,000 those in want
and provide jobs by loans to states
ano otherwise.
Hiskaidesat the White House made
known that the chief execuitve
wishes to allow more time for reor-
ganization of the Reconstruction F-
nance corporation-mandatory under
the relief act within 10 days of its
Few States Refuse Help
Less than 15 of the 48 states were
shown by an Associated Press com-
pilation to intend definitely not to
take full advantage of the relief act.
Governors of several others are un-
decided as yet. Plans are under way
n more than 30 states to utilze bothi
the "destitution loan" and "public
construction" monies made available.
To be administered entirely by the
Deconstruction Finance corporation,
the legislation sets up a $1,500,000,000
fund for loans for public and private
It appropriates $332,000,000 for
public works, of which $132,000,000
can g9 to states for loans to match
regular Federal aid highway funds.
The measure allows $300,000,000 for
emergency loans to. states on certifi-
cation that the cash is needed to off-
set destitution.
Michigan is seeking a loan of $11,-
800 ,000.
Huge Loans Sought
Pennsylvania, Illinois and Arizona
are out to get the maximum possible
under the direct aid fund-$45,000,-
In New York, Gov. Franklin D.
Roosevelt plans to discuss the matter
with the State Unemployment Relief
Committee Thursday before a deci-
sion is made. The expectation is that
the Empire State w9l seek the maxi-
mum. If that is borne out, the total
of direct relief loans already wanted
by but 12 of the states exceeds $200,-
000,000. Funds asked by other states
Idaho, $1,500,000; Indiana..$8,000,-
000; Kansas, $2,750,000; Missouri,
$2,000,000; Utah, $2,000,000, and West
Virginia, $500,000. .
Wisconsin will apply, but has yet
to decide the amount.
In nine states a decision has been
made against asking advances for
direct relief. These were Florida,
Maine, Maryland, Nebraska, Nevada,
North Dakota, Oklahoma, South
Carolina and Vermont.

Famous Costumier Discusses
Problems Faced by Profession

The most difficult job of costum-
ing ever done by Evelyn Cohen, in
private life Mrs. Alexander Wyckoff,
was costuming the Yorktown Sesqui-
Centennial Pageant, she told The
Daily yesterday. More than 5,000
costumes were used in this pageant.
"The biggest problem," the fa-
mous costumiere declared, "was not
in making the costumes as it was
the question of doing everything in
wholesale lots, figuring how many
cm.fllnn vrrt. of r nr, n d vA ln-1-

For her equipment she had five
tents, about the size of circus tents.,
Four were for dressing purposes, and
one for distribution.
"The greatest problem inhcostum-
ing a show is to keep characters
without making the costumes so au-
thentic as to offend people," she
continued. "It is very possible to.
make costumes so authentic that
characters look like dolls and have
no individual personality."
