Local Dramatists Beset
By Unusual Problems

Michigan Union, third floor. The general public is invited.


Such things as DDT bombs, ice-
cream bars, and low-flying air-
planes hold no fear for the usual
theatrical production.
However, they are of special con-
cern to Shirley Loeblich, director
of the Ann Arbor Outdoor Theatre
Association's presentation of "Any-
thing Goes," which opened Thurs-
day night and will be presented at
8:30 p.m. tonight and tomorrow in
the West Park bandshell.
AS ANN ARBOR'S first outdoor
musical comedy, the show has had
to overcome many unusual diffi-

Foreign Educators,
Students To Attend
Fifty educators from foreign
countries will be on campus Mon-
day and Tuesday for a Summer
Conference on Intercultural Edu-
The educators, who are from
France, Mexico, Egypt, England,
Holland and Australia, are in this
country to study the American
educational system and techni-
ques, according to Prof. Claude Eg-
gertsen of the education school,
director of the Conference.
* * *
IN ADDITION, Prof. Eggertsen
said, the Conference will be at-
tended by both foreign and Am-
erican students from the' Univer-
city who are enrolled in areas of
study most closely related. The
conference is sponsored by the
School of Education's Workshop
in International Education.
The purpose of the Conference,
according to Prof. Eggertsen, is
largely to extend to the visiting
teachers of other lands an oppor-
tunity to discuss some of the edu-
cational problems and techniques
involved in mutual understanding.
Walter H. C. Laves, visiting
professor of political science and
former deputy director of UN-
ESCO, will open the conference
with a talk on "Issues in Edu-
cation for Intercultural Under-
standing," at 10 a.m. Monday.
Other outstanding speakers of
the conference will be Charles S.
Johnson, president of Fisk Uni-
versity, and Prof. J. A. Lauwerys
of the University of London.
Conference meetings will be held
on the third floor of the Union.
They are open to the public.

culties, according to Miss Loeblich.
"For example, the DDT bombs
were needed to prevent any insect
invasions," she said, "but so far
the cool evenings have eliminated
the bugs for us."
The ice-cream bars are part of
the financial investment of the
production, because refreshments
are being sold to add to the pro-
ceeds, all of which will go to the
Ann Arbor Civic Orchestra's Inter-
lochen Scholarship Fund. The cool
weather . has been a hindrance,
keeping the ice cream sales down
to practically nothing.
The group was especially lucky
in the matter of low-flying air-
"Only one plane passes over the
park all night," said Miss Loe-
blich, "and it comes in the middle
of the finale. I just instruct con-
ductor Paul Williams to have his
orchestra play as loud as possible,
and we drown the plane out."
* * *
bandshell itself' offered problems
to the production. A specially-
constructed spot-light ended light-
ing difficulties. A clever inno-,
vation was having the "sailors" in
the cast move the revolving flats
for scene changes.
A problem peculiar to "Anything
Goes" itself was also overcome by
Miss Loeblich and her staff.
A false beard was needed to
match the two Pomeranian dogs
which appear in the show. Afterj
trying chalk, make-up and vari-
ous other methods, Miss Loe-
blich hit upon a solution she
terms "highly secret."
The music of Cole Porter re-
ceives top treatment in the pro-
duction through a 35-piece orches-
tra and a special amplifier system
for the actors.
Tickets for the remaining two
performances are on sale at the
gates of the bandshell. The "Fair-
grounds" bus-line runs by the en-j
trance to the park.

WASHINGTON -(P) - The f a-
bulous Sam Mason admitted yes-
terday that he tapped "clients"
for thousands in "sewer money"
on promise to bribe Washington
"But," he asked Senators,
"what's wrong with that?"
IN ANSWER, a Senate investi-
gating committee turned over his
testimony to the Justice Depart-
ment and Internal Revenue Bu-
reau, with a view to prosecution.
The committee has charged
that Mason fleeced "gullible
victims," including two Greek
Catholic priests, out of a third
of a million dollars.
Most of it was supposed to be
used in lining up bargain dollar-a-
year leases on Government build-
ings. There would be a lot of build-
ings available, he told his clients,

sian-born confidence man by the
name of Mussman with a criminal
record a yard long.
Mason, who said he once
stuffed money into his hollow
wooden leg, testified he had tak-
en $88,000 from "clients" but
said he had turned over most of
the money to a mysterious "Mr.
Eungart," now in Australia.
He also admitted he had not
filed an income tax return since
1929 because he never had any
money left at the end of the year.
He said he lost a lot on the ponies.
Mason testified that he told his
clients their money would be used
as "sewer money," but that he did
not use the word bribe.
"But you were entering into a
scheme to bribe Government of-
ficials?" asked Committee Coun-
sel Francis Flanagan.
"Well, I can't say no," Mason
"You certainly can't," Flanagan
shot back.
"No," Mason agreed.
"And you do say yes?" Flana-
gan insisted.
"Yes," M a s o n acknowledged.

go-between with Government of-

was in Australia but that he ex-

fill his deals.
Committee investigators told re-
porters they have found no trace
of Eungart. Neither have they
found any Government official

Band Workshoj
Representing 23 states and Can-
ada, approximately 400 conductors
of high school and college bands
will attend a National Band Con-
ductors Conference Workshop at
the University next week.
William D. Revelli, workshop
chairman, says that about half of
the band conductors who will at-
tend already are enrolled in Sum-
Radio Survey
.Results Told
Radio and television are not ef-
fective means of communicating
difficult ideas, according to Prof.
Harrison B. Summers, director of
radio programming at Ohio State
Addressing a summer speech
conference yesterday, Prof. Sum-
mers said that radio and television
could be used to get across infor-
mation and ideas only if the pro-
grams had wide publiicty, limited
their ideas to simple concepts, and
used "easy" language, having emo-
tional appeal.
Because radio sets are found in
97 percent of America's homes, ra-
dio is the greatest potential means
of communication in this country,
he declared.
However, he stated, radio listen-
ing is at best a divided-attention'
activity. According to a recent

The coeducational crew of
the raft "Lethargia" hit a snag
yesterday, only 24 hours after
they had begun their journey
to New Orleans.
Near Pittsburgh, according to
a United Press dispatch, the

voyagers to spend the night at
their overnight mooring place
on the Allegheny River.
Skipper Mary Ellin McGrady
explained simply that they
would wait until one of the boys
