Melodrama To Feature
Tenement Fires, Snow

By HARRIET TEPPERMAN
Blazing fires and freezing snow
storms will swarm across the stage
enveloping any actors in their way
when the speech department pre-
sents "The Streets of New York"
at 8 p.m. today at the Lydia Men-
delssohn Theatre.'
Good old-fashioned melodrama,
Dion Boucicault's play teems with
cowardly villains, h a n d s o m e
heroes, plighted heroines and an
action-packed plot of Wall Street
panics, attempted murder, multiple
suicide-although nobody's suc-
cessful-and the battle of the ele-
ments.
* * *
THE CASE of comedy versus
tragedy will be fought by 27 play
production students.
Gideon Bloodgood, whose only
object in life is to harm others,
17-.I

will be snarled by Ron Soble,
G r a d. Eventually traitor to
Bloodgood's villainous cause,
Badger will be played by Bill
Taylor, Grad.
Typically the hero down to the
fine points of curly hair and high
brow, Jim Bob Stephenson will
strut the "I'll protect you with my
life" Mark Livingstone. Stephen-
son, a grad student in the speech
department, ably handled the lead
in "Green Grow the Lilacs," the
speech department's first presenta
tion this summer.
* * *
TRUE TO melodramatic form,
the play boasts of a poor little rich
girl. Deserted by all because her
father fell with the stockmarket,
Alida, played by Delores Rashid,
Grad., seeks to win the hero's love.
Miss Rashid was also seen in
"Green Grow the Lilacs."
But it is to Lucy thatthe be-
sieged hero turns his love. Por-
trayed by Doris Medina, Lucy
flounces through dangers into
her lover's arms.
Others in the cast will be Jean-
nete Grandstaff, Norma Stolzen-
bach, Clarence Stephenson, Wil-
lard Booth, Art Nevins, Lloyd VTan-
Valkenburgh and Conrad Stolzen-
bach, all of whom are graduate
students in speech.
* * *
THE PLAY is being directed by
Prof. Hugh Z. Norton, who also di-7
rected the campus presentation of
"An Enemy of the People" earlier
this season.
In addition to the colorful cos-
tumes and unique sets which add
to the 19th century flavor of the
play, the speech students have
succeeded with the aid of a few
chemistry students, in harmlessly

The Rev. William H. Hender-
son of the First Presbyterian
Church will leave Ann Arbor to

has served as assistant student
director and as University coun-
sellor for Presbyterian students.

the First Presbyterian Church

president of the Christian Stu-
dent Directors on campus. Rev.

The renovation of West Lodge
in Willow Village to make class-
room space for 300 school children
was begun this week. .
West Lodge, formerly a men's
dormitory for single men employ-
ed at the Willow Run bomber
plant, will be converted into 11
classrooms, a cafeteria, recreation
center, offices, a maintenance
shop and storage space. The work
is expected to be completed by
Sept. 1.

The School District obtained the
building, built in 1943, from the
Federal Security Administration
in May. Rights to all uranium de-
posits which might be found there
were waived first, a formality in
all governnent land contracts
since development of the A-bomb.
West Lodge, which was among
15 government-built units sched-
uled to be razed last year, was ob-
tained without cost.

TODAY our traditional August Clearance be-
gins with a clean sweep of all seasonal Spring
and Summer Merchandise from our Regular
Stock.
