Nazis' Threat
Heard To Cut
Iran Relations

Acting as a profession does not
provide many openings, for graduat-
ing college actors and actresses,
Whitford Kane, veteran Broadway
star who is appearing in and direct-
ing "Hobson's Choice" at the Lydia
Mendelssohn this week, declared in
an interview yesterday.
Kane explained that not more
than about two or three members of
a summer company have the ability
to insure success on the stage. The
difficulty with amateur players is
that they act only from the neck up
and not with their whole ,bodies as
professional actors do.
The duty of university theatres,
Kane said, is to preserve the classics.
He pointed out that the best plays of
Shakespeare, Shaw and Galsworthy
ought to be put in repertory to be
given in succeeding seasons. One of
the most tragic sights in Kan's opin-
ion is the breaking up of the sets
and the cutting up of the costumes
on the Saturday nights at the end of
a play's run.
Speaking of the encroachmentof
moviet stars on the legitimate stage,
Kane expressed resentment at the
employment of movie actresses for
box office purposes. The beauty of
a Hollywood star will last only ten
minutes in a play while trained per-
sonnel last the whole evening. Many
students are better performers than
the movie actors and actresses.
Kane had nothing but the highest
praise for the Michigan Repertory
Players of the Department of Speech.
Calling.it "the best university outfit
in the country," he had special com-
mendation for Mrs. Claribel Baird,
Prof. Valentine B. Windt and Prof.
William P. Halstead, directors of the
Serving his sixth summer with the
Players, Kane emphasized that he
got the same enjoyment working
with amateur student players as Pro-
fessor Windt does in working with
professional actors and actresses in
the spring drama season.
Kane has been in theatre work for

041 years. He got his training with
traveling Shakespeare companies in
England. His first London appear-
ance was in John Galsworthy's "The
Pigeon." He came to the United
States in 1912, and his first New
York success was in "Hobson's
Choice" in 1915.
He has appeared in 23 different
productions of "Hamlet" with stars
like John Barrymore, and Maurice
Evans. Kane said his favorite part
was Bottom in "Midsummer Night's
He will present this part in a
radio broadcast under the direction
of Mike Church tomorrow. This fall
Kane will go on a tour with Kather-
ine Cornell in George Bernard Shaw's
"Doctor's Dilemma." He has been
appearing in this production during
the past Broadway season.
Men Over 28
Will Go Home
Michigan Draftees Soon
May Be Released
LANSING, Aug. 7.-()P)-Michigan
draftees over 28 years of age may be
returned to private life shortly, it was
indicated today by the State Selective
Service headquarters.
Lieut.-Col. John I. Croshaw, head
of inductions, said he was instructed
by the Sixth Corps Area headquarters
at Chicago to estimate the number of
men above 28 who had been dratfed
in the state.
Croshaw said an attempt apparent-
ly was underway to replace the older
men with younger draftees as soon as
it can be accomplished "conveniently."
He estimated that a third of the Mich-
igan draftees were 28 or older.
The men affected are those in-
ducted before new elective Service
regulations deferring candidates over
28 were adopted.
