Curtis Forced To Delay
Honeymoon for Tour
How would you like to go on
your honeymoon without your
That is the situation in which
Anthony Curtis has found him-
* * *
CURTIS, a young motion pic-
ture actor recently elevated to
stardom, explained the details
while in Ann Arbor Sunday to pro-
mote his latest epic "The Prince
Who Was A Thief."
The New York-born actor la-
mented the fact that he won't
see his wife, MGM's curvaceous
Janet Leigh, for another 13 days.
They were married three weeks

ago in New England and on the
next day Curtis began a five
weeks personal appearance tour.
"What's even worse," said Cur-
tis, "is the fact that our tour is
covering practically the same itin-
erary we had planned for our
Accompanying him on his visit
here was his co-star in "The
Prince Who Was A Thief," former
Detroiter Piper Laurie. Nineteen
year old Miss Laurie, who exhibits
a pleasing personality besides her
more obvious charms, spent most
of her afternoon in a State St.
movie theatre handing out auto-
graphed photos that showed her
reclining in a tree.
SPOTTED AMONG the long
lines of grade and high school stu-
dents waiting to receive Miss Lau-
rie's photograph were several Uni-
When asked what he planned
to do with the likeness, Bill Oles,
'54,, said "The tree in the photo
is extremely rare and should un-
doubtedly help me in my botany
An interview with the two young
stars by local disc- ockey Ted
Johnson brought out the fact that
both enjoy their Hollywood ca-
reers, despite the early hours,
bruises received on the set, and
such unforeseen emergencies as
Curtis' postponed honeymoon.
The two stars, shepherded by
veteran Universal Studio publicity
man Frank McFadden, left for
their next stop, Monroe, after Cur-
tis had attended to a very import-
He bought several china figur-
ines for his wife in a local store.
"Sort of a pre-honeymoon gift,"
he said, obviously thinking of how
to soothe his wife for the missed
New Fire Station
It looks as if Ann Arbor wil at
last get the much talked of and
long awaited second fire station
in view of the action taken last
night by the City Council.
The councilmen approved the
Fire Commission's recommenda-
tion to buy four lots on the south
side of E. Stadium Blvd, near
Packard as the proposed site for
the new station, despite a protest
Eighty - four property owners
signed a petition protesting the
proposed location. Francis W.
Shilling, attorney for th petition-
ers, requested a "full-dress hear-
ing," charging that the Fire Com-
mission was "lacking in finesse in
not obtaining the views of the
residents of the area" before tak-
ing the option to buy the lots.
Set for Six Weeks
The 1951 Guidance Workshop,
under the direction of S. C. Huls-
lander, counselor trainer, and Del-

The unadorned plot is decor-

There is a great deal of history
behind the folk songs and dances.
One story tells of the origin of the
Mexican word "gringos," which
they applied to the white men to
It seems that "Green Grow the
Lilacs," title song of the play, was
a favorite among the cowboys who
rode the range. The Mexicans
colloquiallized the first two words
into the appellation "gringos."
Square dances, then known as
"play parties," were invented
about this time by the young peo-
ple due to necessity. Parents of the
era completely disapproved of
dancing, calling it useless occupa-
tion, "inspired by the devil."
Prompted by the need for some
type of recreation, the young men
and women invented the "play
>arty," as they called it in order
to fool their parents.

"GREEN GROW THE LILACS"
was produced by the Theatre
Guild in New York during the
early 1930's, and was such a suc-
cess in its own right, that Richard
Rodgers and. Oscar Hammerstein
adapted it as the basis for their
smash-hit musical "Oklahoma!"
Directed by Prof. Baird, the cos-
tumes have been designed by Lucy
Barton, guest costumiere for the
summer who is on leave from the
University of Texas. The Art De-
signer is George Crepeau.
Season and single tickets for
summer plays can be purchased
from 4-8 p.m. today, and from 10
a.m. to 5 p.m. every other day ex-
cept Sunday at the Lydia Men-

Coeds on Observatory Hill may
soon be meeting what might turn
out to be interesting strangers
through the legitimate pretext of
"two nickels for a dime," on Sun-
days as well as week days, thanks
to the City Council.
This boost to social relations
comes from a vote made by the
Council Monday, which will place
the planned 100 meters in the
University Hospital area in service
seven days a week instead of the
usual six days, as an accommoda-
tion to out-of-town visitors.

A LONE dissenting vote was
cast by City Alderman John B.
Melott who declared that the city
is getting "nickel hungry" if it
asks out-of-town visitors to pay
for parking there on Sundays.

"We plan to do research work
on such topics as the type of pro-
grams that appeal to the new TV
owner and programs he prefers a
year after he has had the set,"
Stasheff declared, "and scattered
studies already made show that
after the novelty wears off, the
type of program must be improved
to hold the audience."
Stasheff has been a free lance
director for the American Broad-
casting Company, a part-time
teacher at the Teachers College at
Columbia University and assistant
program manager for two years at
