filming of the life of Peg Woffington.
will be the first of four foreign
movies to be offered this summer by
the Art Cinema League, and will be
shown at 8:15 p.m. next Sunday in

and Wahr's Book Store. No tickets
will be sold for individual programs.
Starring Anna Neagle as Peg Wof-
fington and Cir Cedric Hardwicke
as David Garrick, "Peg of Old Drury"
was acclaimed by the New York Times
as "one of the finest cinema produc-
tions ever to come out of England,
or of anywhere else, for that mat-
ter." It was produced by the British
and Dominions Film Corporation,
Ltd., and directed by Herbert Wil-
cox, one of England's foremost film
producers.
With its middle 18th century set-
ting, the movie brings to life not
only Peg and the immortal Davy
Garrick, but also such other out-
standing figures of the time as Dr.
Samuel Johnson, James Boswell, Al-
exander Pope, Oliver Goldsmith, Wil-
liam Pitt and Lord Sandwich, after
whom the luncheon tidbit is named.
The scene portraying the naming of
the sandwich is included in the film.

Sra. Rudolpher is a happy combi-
nation of liking things intellectual
and also being very sociable. She
has had-a distinguished career in edu-
cational work in Brazil both for the
government and at the university.
She is the author of many articles
on vocational guidance and primary
education. She also has been spon-
sor of the graduating class several
times in the School of Philosophy,
Sciences, Letters and Education at the
University of Sao Paulo. She has
been invited to the present confer-
nce because of "distinguished lead-
ership in the educational program
of Brazil."
Would Like To Return
"I want to live in Brazil because
that is my country but I should like
to be able to afford to return to the
United States every five or six years
so as to get new ideas, ways of im-
proving myself, to see things more
objectively; to find new ways of solv-
ing problems of child and adolescent
psychology and to observe new meth-
ods," she said.
"When do you get time to dream?"
she asked when, we turned to the
subject of the Americans' quick tem-
po of life.
"New York is not America and so I
think people from Brazil should see
New York at last.
Admires Americans
"You are a wonderful people," she
went on in her frank, open and en-
thusiastic manner that is' so char-
acteristic of the Brazilians but which
cannot be said of all peoples from
the South American Republics.
"Only serious minded women go
to the university in Brazil; they are
always very bright girls and they
study very hard and they do not
think about having any social life,"
she said in answer to my question on
women in the universities of Brazil.
"We are beginning to see the value
of co-education; it is providing for
better relationships and now boys
and girls are starting to be good
friends," she said. "But it is only
in an embryo state but it is being
patterned after the American way.'
On the emancipation of women
she was also enthusaistic. "Now we
have many career girls. Women hav-
ing jobs is getting to be more com-
mon and it is working out very weli
for their better relationship with
men. That was not true 30 years
ago."
Approves Of Girls'' Freedom
She approved the freedom of the
American girl. "American girls know
how to use their freedom as far as
my observation is concerned," she
said. "Your social organizations
provide good relationships between
men and women."
I asked her how much they were
hearing about the Good Neighbor
Policy and' she said, "We are just

more profound than ours; sometimes
we go more deeply."
