Open Four-Day Run Next
The Michigan Repertory Players-
will combine with the School of Music
'for the first time in the presentation
of "The Chocolate Soldier;" an oper-
etta by Oscar Straus and Stanislaus
Stange, which will open Wednesday
night at the Lydia Mendelssohn The-
ater for a foui-day run.
The University orchestra of 24
pieces, directed by Prof. David Mat-
tern of the School of Music, will play

charge of the chorus of 40 voices, who
will sing the most popular songs of the
production. Valcntine B. Windt, di-
rector of the Repertory Players, is
directing the play.
The plot of "The Chocolate Sol-
dier," which is based upon George
Bernard Shaw's play, "Aims and the
Man," takes place in Bulgaria. A
young Servian soldier who has es-
caped from the Bulgarian troops
takes refuge in the bedroom of a
young Bulgarian girl, and induces her
to protect him.
Although Play Production has col-
laborated with the School of Music in
several musical shows during the reg-
ular year, this is the first time that
the two departments have been com-
bined during the summer term.
Among the shows which the two
groups have given together during
the winter term are "Iolanthe," "The
Gondoliers," and "A Midsummer
Because of the heavy advance sale'

MOSCOW, Aug. 3. - (Sunday) -
UP) -Oil trouble over the icy Bar-,

bitious attempt of three Russians to
fly non-stop from Moscow to San
Francisco across the North Pole.
A defective oil line spoiled their
dream of setting a new world's non-
stop record in a 6,000-mile hop. The
fliers turned about when over the
southern part of the sea and returned

MOSCOW, Aug. 3. - (I') - The
scarlet-winged Soviet polar plane,
well ahead of schedule, roared over
icy Arctic wastes toward the North
Pole tonight in its attempt to fly non-
stop from Moscow to San Francisco.
All was well as the three confident
Soviet fliers left .continental Europet
today and headed across the 2,3911
miles of ice and water of the Barents1
Sea. This is the most hazardous part
of their projected 6,000-mile flight.<
At 7:25 a.m. Eastern standard time
the radio of the plane UR. S. S. 251
told an excited Moscow that .it had,

The fliers, if they maintained their
first fast clip, expected to soar over,
the North Pole by 9 p.m. Eastern
standard time tonight,.
As the load grew lighter through1
consumption of gasoline, the big plane
traveled at an average speed of 108
miles an hour, although it had been
expected to maintain only an average
of 96 miles.
Pilot Sigmund Levaneffsky, hero of
Soviet aviation, ant is comrades ex-
pected to reach San Francisco early
Monday. If they do they will have
broken the world's non-stop flight
record set in 1933 by the French fliers
Paul Codos and Maurice Rossi.
Ice was a major hazard as the
single-motored plane bore down on
The UR. S. S. 25 lifted its 11 tons
from the Sholfoffsky Military Airport
in a driving rain at 11:03 p.m. Friday,
Eastern standard time. It crossed the
White Sea and reached open water in
less than eight and a half hours.
All Moscow waited eagerly for news
of the venture as the plane flew stead-
ily across the roof of the world. The
craft was made in this country.
Strong winds were expected in the
vicinity of Franz Josef Land, but this
threat was not regarded as serious as
that of ice.
With Levaneffsky, who once flew
to the aid of Jimmy Mattern when
the American pilot was stranded in
Siberia, are co-pilot George Baidukof
and Navigator Victor Lychencko.

today that the movement is only the

The strikers' statement, signed by

they intend to win their fight for
lower meat prices and "go on to

the strike is communistic.

Walter Mendrzyk, acting president
of the Hamtramck Butchers and
Grocers Association, said all butcher
shops there would close for two weeks
if the boycott continued.
"We're closing simply because
there's no one to sell to," he said.
