attack on three airports on the

p. m. Wednesday through Saturday
at the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
In the preface of hisdrama. An-
derson's writes: "Before I wrote
"Journey to Jerusalem", I had come
to a realization, along with many
others in these bitter years, that
there was no answer to Hitler and
the rule of force except some kind
of faith, faith of men in themselves
and in the race of men".
Study of Christianity's Origin
With this in mind, the playwright
undertook the study of the origin of
Christianity and sought to draw a
significant parallel between the Cae-
sars and Hitlers.
Without following Luke's narra-
tive strictly, the drama tells the
story of the Passover pilgrimage
to Jerusalem and takes the child,
Jeshrua, to the threshcld of His
mission as He walks alone through
the corridors of the temple.
Throughout the drama, the em-
phasis is placed on the corruption
and greed in high positions and the
distress and poverty among the
people.
Cast Announced
Ruth Branscon will portray the
rcle of Jeshua, Doris Fast wil play
Miriam, and Patricia Meikle will be
cast as Joseph.

Mrs. Baird To Direct
Mrs. Claribel Baird, a member of
the faculty of the Oklahoma State
College for Women, will direct the
production.
In choosing a play for my first
production, I was confronted with
the problem of finding script that
had both dignity and emotional ap-
peal without depressing tragedy,"
Mrs. Baird said. The text of "Jour-
ney ot Jerusalem" seemed to me to
be an answer to the problem in that
it had a special significance to this
nations in these troubled times," she
added.
