Sheridan's 'The Rivals'
To Begin Run July 8
In Repertory Season
By BERY, SHOENFIELD
Rehearsals have begun for Richard
B. Sheridan's comedy, "The Rivals,"
initial offering of the Department of
Speechi' 1942 Michigan Repertory
Players. Opening July 8 and con-
tinuing through August 18, the Play-
ers will present a program of five
plays and an operetta.
Distinguished among the six guest
instructors is Howard Bay, stage de-
signer for the current -production of
Steinbeck's "The Moon Is Down,"
who will be art director for the sea-
son, assisted by Horace Armistead,
scenic painter, and William Kellum,
Claribel Baird returns to Ann Ar-
bor for her -third consecutive year
as actress and director, along with
Lucy Barton, 1939 Repertory cos-
Also a repeater with the Players is
' Charles H. Meredith, managing di-
rector of New Orleans' Le Petit du
Following "The Rivals," will
be Robert Ardrey's extraordinary
"Thunder Rock," a story of a Lake
Michigan lighthouse keeper who
brings to life again the spirits of six
people, 90 years dead. The ultra
Bohemian atmosphere of a family of
artists is the essence of Noel Cow-
ard's farce, "Hay Fever," which opens
the third week of the run.
Included as one of the best 'ten
plays of the year by Burns Mantle,
is "Letters to Lucerne," by Fritz Rot-
ter and Allen Vincent, first of the
" ewer war dramas to command at-
tention. Of different nature is the
lighter "Misalliance," by George
Bernard Shaw, a tale of an under-
wear manufacturer's family.
Special summer rates are avail-
able on 'tickets for the summer sea-*
son and reservations may be made
by mail or at the box office of the
Lydia Mendelssohn, open daily ex-
cept Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Counter sale of season tickets will
open Monday and single tickets will
be placed on sale the following Fri-
Daily at 1--3-5-7-9 P.M.
Cooled To Your Comfort
Asked In Drive
A plea to tuirnin ever-increasing E
amounts of scrap rubber to the fill-
ing station piles came yesterday from
Paul R. Kempf, state salvage com-
"With less than a week to go, Ann
Arbor and Washtenaw residents must
really come across in the scrap rub-.
ber collection campaign if the county
is to go over the top," Kempf de-'
clared. The county quota is 200 tons.
The drive will end' June 30 when
citizens will find increasing diffi-
culty in disposing of scrap rubber
so that it can be used in war in-
dlustry- The rubber will be weighed,
tabulated and the totals will be used
in the solution of the problem of gas
Meanwhile, Ann Arbor's Fire Chief
Benjamin Zahn discovered a verit-
able lode of the precious scrap rub-r
ber in a corner of the fire station. K

commander of the Citizens Defense
Corps, said today the general alarm
will not reach the public, the test;
merely designed to determine theI
speed with which Michigan must act.

WITH.FAMOUS athletic figures be-

hat your columnist feels that this is
a good time to talk about an athlete,
who was perhaps, far greater than
any of them.
This guy, unlike his well-known
colleag\es, rehised numerous fancy
desk jobs and gold-plated titles so
he could start right from the bottom,
in the country's active fighting
This exception to the popular,
trend is Michigan's Tom Harmon.
Harmon is now in California
working his head off to be one 6ft

Before long he will be sent across(
to get more than his share of the
slant-eyed dope peddlers.f
Last year the ,All-American half-'
back had offers by the dozen to ac-.
cept some recruiting or publicity job'
for different branches of the armed
forces. But he turned them all down
with a cold, no.
Harmon was a great competitor and
he knew he could never sit around
and let the other boys do the fighting.
He just wanted to be a "doer" instead
of an "asker" and that's all there was

Next to State Theatre
It's true that Tom asked for a
two months deferment after he"
applied for his commission in the
,Army Air Forces, but it was on
grounds of dependents. He had
all the right in the world to do this
because contrary, to popular belief
Harmon does not have a lot of
ALL IN ALL, he did not earn, over
$30,000 from pictures, profession-
al football,-radio announcing and ad-
vertising. More than half of that
total was spent on a house for his
parents, which he started to build
before Pearl Harbor.
After Tom receiyes his commission
most of the money he earns will have
to be sent home to support his father
! All of this is just an added incent-
ive to the All-American to give the
Army all that's in him.
In a 'recent letter to Russ O'Brien,
a close friend here in Ann Arbor, Tom
The Air Force is a great thing.
You can't imagine the tremendous
advantages that it offers to any
boy who wants to serve his country.
The competition is tough, but it
only makes my work a lot more
T HAT'S HARMON for you, no mat-
ter what he is in 'he gives it all
he's got. He could never stand to
take a back seat in anything he tried.
That's why he's probably Michi-

repeated the performance. Every time
