'Chocolate Soldier' To Be Last Drama Production

Faculty Cut
(Continued from Page 1)



* $ 8

* * *

Oscar Strauss' comic operetta,
"The Chocolate Soldier," the last
presentation of the summer dra-
ma season, will open at 8 p.m. to-
morrow evening at the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre.
Staged by the combined efforts
of speech department play pro-
duction students and students of
the music school, Strauss' cartoon
of martial romance is based on
George Bernard Shaw's play,
"Arms and the Man."
#* *
THE RUMOR centers around
the fact that Col. Popoff's wife
and daughter entertain a Swiss
soldier, while he, the head of the
family, is off fighting with the
Bulgarian army.
John Wiles, Grad., plays Capt.
Dumerli who complicates the hop-
py home situation by falling in
love with Nadina, Col. Popoff's
daughter, who is portrayed by
Carole Wilder, Grad.
Aurelia, Col., Popoff's wife, is at
a loss as to how to cope with the
situation when Alexis, already be-
trothed to Medina, demands his
just deserts. Marilyn Krim., Grad.,
alid Dale Thompson, Grad., take
these parts.
When Col. Popoff, played by
David Murray, Grad., returns
with Mawsakroff, a comic army
eaptain, he finds that further
confusion has arisen because of
the plottings of Mashia.
Mawsakroff is burlesqued by
James Fudge, Grad., and Mashia,
Nedina's cousin, is played by Vi-
vien Milan, Grad.
THE SOLDIERS and townspeo-
ple of the chorus include both
play production and music school
Students. The chorus is made up
of Charles Emery, William Erwin,
John Gehring, Charles George,
Nate Katter, Robert McGrath and
James Miller.
Also members of the chorus are
William Roberts, Allen Robertson,
Kingsley Sears, Clarence Stephen-
son, Peter Thompson, Phyllis Bai-
ley, Marilyn Begole, Leslie Ben-
nett, Allegra Branson, William
Bromfield, Evely Challis and Paul
The list continues with Carol
Eagle, Marilyn Floridis, Gloria
Grigsby, Mary Jo Jones, Ruth
Orr, Beatrice Patton, Betty Pflei-
derer, Mary Pfotenhauer, Nancy

the direction of Prof. Valentine
Windt of the speech department,
while the music is directed by
Prof. Wayne Dunlap of the music
school. Prof. Dunlap will also con-
duct the accompanying orchestra,
consisting of 27 members of the
University Summer Symphony.
Opening night performance is
sold out, but tickets still remain
for the performances to be given
Friday, Saturday and Monday
evenings. They may be purchased
from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, and
until 8 p.m. on the nights of per-
formances at the Mendelssohn box

Enrollment is expected to jump'
when college-age youths now in
military service finish their re-
quired 24 months' training. Many
vill head towards the nation's
campuses and the same teachers
who will soon be let out will be
badly needed.
The vacuum created when mili-
tary needs plucked many young
men out of civilian life is expect-
ed to be filled by late 1953, when
about as many men will be coming
out of the services as are going in.
From then on enrollment is ex-
pected to increase.
* * *
the slack in present enrollment
is being taken up by defense or
offices training programs. There
hasn't been much need for the
military to train men in colleges
in any large numbers.
The survey shows that slight-
ly more than half of the liberal
arts schools will do some reduc-
ing this fall, as will about 45
per cent of the universities.
More than one-third of all the
schools will cut their staffs. Re-
ductions in these schools this fall
will total about nine per cent.
THE LOWER ranks of teachers
-assistant professors and instruc-
tors-will suffer the worst, but
some will be dropped from higher
The heaviest reduction in sub-
ject fields will be English, with
modern languages next. Light-
est reductions are planned in
classical languages and in medi-
The cuttings seems to be na-
tionwide, with no particular re-
gion worse off than another.
In general, two factors weigh.
heaviest in determining a reduc-
tion in faculty:
1. Whether the subject appeals
military manpower buildup.
2. Whether it is required of

Japanese College Students Learning Eng ish
Anxiously Await American Correspondents
4 "dgR

Japanese students attending
universities in Tokyo and Oka-
yama are extremely anxious to
find American "pen pals," accord-
ing to Prof. Robert E. Ward of the
political science department.
English is becoming increasing-
ly more important in Japan and
it is almost essential for young
men and women who plan to go
into business or government work
to have a thorough knowledge of
the language, Prof. Ward said.
* * *
"UNIVERSITY students in Ja-
pan are so desirous of learning
the English language that they
will go to great lengths to obtain
American -correspondents," Prof.
Ward commented. "Many Japan-
ese hear the name of an American.
business firm and immediately
proceed to write a letter to 'My
Dear Unknown American Friend,'
in care of the firm's address."
Not only commercial purposes,
motivate the Japanese to learn,
English, Prof. Ward said. "Many
of the Japanese felt cut off dur-
ing the past war and still feel
somewhat isolated from the
standpoint of information."
They think that it is better to{
get their knowledge from indivi-
duals than from newspapers and

are anxious to correspond with
American friends, he said.
e, *: *
PROF. WARD, assistant direct-
or of the Center for Japanese Stu-
dies, said that the Center, and
its branch in Okayama, have re-
ceived more than 100 letters from
Japanese who wish to become ac-
quainted with Americans through
The professor noted that all
the workers in the Center have
more Japanese correspondents
than they can handle, and
would appreciate University stu-
dents relieving them of the mail
The Okayama Center was es-
tablished by grants from the
Raekham and Carnegie Institutes
in 1950. "It is the point of depart-
ure for graduate students and f a-
culty members from the Univer-
sity and qualified people from oth-
er universities who wish to work
on a series of community studies
in Japan," Prof. Ward said.
"Political scientists, anthropolo-
gists and sociologists study con-
temporary Japanese culture to-
gether at the Center. They work
on the same problem, in the same
place, at the same time," Prof.
Ward commented. "In this way,

they get a more complete coverage
of trends in culture," he said.
Members of the Center are now
expanding their survey from the
village to the town level and may
proceed to make a thorough study
of cities in the future, Prof. Ward


stated. Robert Noehren, University or-
