(Special to The Daily)
JACKSON, Wyo., July 14.-The be-
ginning of the fourth week of the
Camp Davis Summer Session finds
both engineers and geologists hard
at work.
The engineers have made a topo-
graphical survey of an area about a
mile from the camp where differences
in elevation of several hundred feet
were encountered. Since the com-
pletion of that project they have
been engaged in the surveys for a
highway about a mile in length. Suf-
ficient stakes have been set to enable'
a grading contractor to begin con-
On the trip from Ann Arbor to
Wyoming the geologists gathered suf-
ficient data to prepare a geological
cross-section of the country from the
Great Lakes to the Rocky Mountains.
Their evenings since arriving in camp
have been spent in plotting this cross-
section. During the day they have
been in the field, becoming acquaint-
ed with the strata and structure of
the Jackson Hole area.
Students 'of geology from several
other colleges are enrolled at the
camp. Among the institutions repre-
sented are Chicago, Colgate, Lafay-
ette, North Carolina and Ohio State.

Meredith Lauds Experimentation
By University Drama Groups

, Iy jiJZl..L VT W t.ELUA.UL
Real experimentation in theatre
work is possible only in the universi-
ties, Charles H. Meredith, director
of the Dock Street Theatre in
Charleston, S.C., and visiting direct-
or here of "The Contrast" which will
be presented this week by the speech
department's Michigan Repertory
Players, declared in an interview yes-
"The whole commercial theatre is
absolutely inhospitable to experimen-
tation," Mr. Meredith said. Even the
little theatres are unable to experi-
ment because of commercial restric-
tions dictated by the box office.
Nevertheless, the community the-
atre has promise, although it has a
big problem of development. Mr.
Meredith expressed the hope that the
universities would supply that de-
velopment with the capable theatre
personnel they are turning out.
Graduates trained in theatre work
are faced with the fact that there is
less room in both the, professional
and educational theatre. The only
field remaining, Mr. Meredith em-
phasized, where there are a great deal
of jobs to be had is in the community
theatre which is susceptible to de-
The university is not only training
skilled workers, it must be remem-
bered, but it is also training audi-
ences. This is the logical develop-
ment of the extension of the univer-
- sity's influence over the community
and should not cease with graduation.
Mr. Meredith is a graduate of .the
School of the Theatre of the Carhe-


gie Institute. He has played in both
the professional Broadway Theatre
and silent moving pictures. After
playing in the silent films he made a
three-year study of the theatre as it
existed in Europe. It was there he
became interested in experinentation.
Returning to the United States he
again appeared in both Broadway
productions and Hollywood movies.
For the past 15 years he has directed
in little theatres in Santa Barbara,
New Orleans, Dallas and Charleston.
At the Dock Street Theatre in
Charleston he has been able to carry
out real experimentation because of
a Rockefeller grant for production
and also a fellowship grant to the
former Dubose Heyward for play
Mr. Meredith has also taught at
Southern Methodist University, a
Junior College in Dallas and the San-
ta Barbara State Normal School. At
the present time in addition to being
director of the Dock Street Theatre
he is also president of the Confeder-
ency of American Community The-
Dames To Meet
Michigan Dames will hold a bridge
party at .2 p.m. tomorrow in the

internes are welcome to attend. This
will be the first in a series of weekly
sessions, to continue through the
Summer Session.
