Black, Gold, Maroon Is Color
Plan for The Learned Ladies'

* . *

An unusual and interesting com-p
bination of black and gold supple-
mented by a maroon background will
be the main feature of the highly
stylized and elaborate setting to be
used for "The Learned Ladies," the
second offering of the Michigan Rep-
ertory Players, Robert Burrows, tech-
nicaldirector of the Caroline Play-
makers and a guest technician for
the summer dramatic productions,
said yesterday.
"Included in the formalized and
rich setting is an elaborate wood
framework, in gold and chairs up-
holstered in fabricatled maroon silk
with gold fringe," Mr. Burrows con-
tinued. "Effective screeis ln black,
gold and maroon elaborate the rich
setting," he added.
Holds Master's Degree
Mr. Burrows received his B.A. at
the College of Puget Sound in Ta-
coma, Wash. and his master's degree
in dramatics at the University- of
After teaching dramatics for two
years in the Seattle high schools, he
was promoted to an assistant profes-
sor of dramatics at the University of
North Carolina, where he has been
the technical director of the Carolina
Last summer, Mr. Burrows was a
technical director at Northwestern
University, assisting Theodore Fuchs,
who is nationally known as a de-
signer of lighting effects.
One of the most unusual settings
he has worked on was the one for
Shakespeare's play, "A Winter's
Tale," which was produced in the
outdoor theatre at the -University of
North Carolina. "The setting had to
be very elaborately done and the
lighting was very complicated, in-
volving large amounts of equipment
and four switchboards," he stated.
Lighting Is Important
In the "Journey to Jerusalem"
which will be the next production of
the Players, the lighting will play an
important part in emphasizing the
locale and the action of the drama,
he said.
Discussing the equipment of the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre, he said
that the settings produced were
unusually well done and were super-
ior to any others that he has seen in
the university field. "The plaster sky
dome of the theatre gives an excellent
sky effect to the exterior," he added.
"The large class of students.. in
stagecraft have been very capable
and very enthusiastic," he said.

Missing Man
Is Identified
As Professor
HARTFORD, Conn.. July 15.-(/P)
-A laundry truck driver who said
today that his mind was "perfectly
blank" about much of his life since
1930 identified himself to Hartford
police as a former University of Wis-
consin faculty member, listed as
missing for fourteen years and legally
declared dead in 1938.
Tips to Hartford police and news-
papers from newspapers in Madison
Wis., Milwaukee and Chicago that
the missing man might be here led
to the identification of the driver as
John A. Commons, 53, University
Research Assistant in Economics

CHEEK", a new comedy
written by John Van Dru-

presented by the Michigan
Repertory Players of the
Department of Speech
Wednesday through Satur-
day at the Lydia Mendel-
ssohn Theatre. Describ-
ed as "an amusing frolic
in the family album", "The
Damask Cheek" was the
story of a plain looking but
lively and interesting Eng-
lish girl of good family who
is visiting her American
relatives. Bernard Rosen-

commented that the play
opened "with something
less than a bang and rath-
er more than a chuckle."
