CHEER AP, KEPTIN:
Speech Group To Give
Shaw's 'Pygmalion'

'They Just Melt Away'

By FRAN SHELDON
"Ow, eez ye-ooa san, is e?
Wal, fewd dan y' de-ooty bawmz
a mather should, eed no bettern
to spawl a pore gel's flahrzen than
run awy athat pyin. Will ye-oo py
me F'them?" Liza shouted.
In George Bernard Shaw's pop-
ular comedy, "Pygmalion," the
cockney gutter snipe who spouts
the- almost unintelligible English
is turned into a most polished
"dutchess" in six months.
FOURTH on the speech depart-
ment's summer play-bill the social
satire, will open tomorrow in Ly-
dia Mendelssohn Theater.
Based on the Greek myth con-
cerning the sculptor who fell in .
love with the statute he created,
this Shavian Cinderella story
has a far more modern slant
than its predecessor.
$33,000 Grant
Awarded to 'U'
Medical School
The medical school was award-
ed $33,000 by the National Fund
for Medical Education, it was an-
nounced yesterday.
Funds are made possible by
contributions from corporations
through the Committee of Amer-
ican Industry and from the medi-
cal profession through the Amer-
ican Medical Education Founda-
tion set up by the American Med-
ical Association.
MICHIGAN'S OTHER medical
school, the Wayne University Col-
lege of Medicine also received $33,-
000. Seventy-three four-year med-
ical schools and six two-year basic
medical sciences schools have re-
ceived grants from the fund this
year.
Walker L. Cisler, president of
Detroit Edison Co. and chairman
of the fund's Detroit Committee
of American Industry, announc-
ed the awards. He said, while
grants are unrestricted,. the
money is used primarily to re-
tain valuable personnel, fill
teaching vacancies, create new
faculty posts and initiate teacl-
ing experiments.
Dr. Albert C. Furstenburg, dean
of the medical school, said medi-
cal schools are having a hard time
of it. He explained the State Leg-
islature had been "understanding
and sympathetic."

A phoenetics professor, played
by Nafe Kater, Grad. determines
to take Eliza, played by Gwen
Arner, '54, into his home for a
short time in order to teach her
the social graces under constant
professional supervision.
THE FLOWER GIRL, lulled by
promises of unareamed of gran-
deur makes a superhuman effort to
learn quickly and become a true
"lady."
Under the nearly inhuman
coaching of the professor, Eliza
grows in elegance and refinement
until she finally is presented to
English society.
After his great triumph, the
complete metamorphisis of the
cockney street urchin into a cul-
tured "duchess," the professor loses
interest in the whole project,
leaving the problem of Eliza's fu-
ture squarely up to the girl and
Colonel Pickering, played by Dale
Stevenson, '54.
It is not until too late that he
finds he is really in love with the
girl.
DIRECTED by Prof. William P.
Halstead of the speech department,
the play will run through Satur-
day.
All performances will begin at
8 p.m. and late comers will not be
seated until after the first scene.
Tickets are available for all four
performances at the Mendelssohn
boxoffice. They are priced at $1.20,
90 cents and 60 cents. x
Bloomier Cites
Therapist Need
Statistics reveal the demand for
speech and hearing therapists far
exceeds the present supply, accord-
ing to Prof. Harlan Bloomer, of the
speech department, director of the
speech clinic.
The University was able to fill
only a small portion of the 236 job
openings in this field. "Most of the
arising largely from public school
employment opportunities are for
speech correctionists, the de-
mand arising largely from public
schools," said Prof. Bloomer.
Prof. Bloomer cited state sup-
ported speech correction programs
inaugurated in various localities
within recent years, whereby funds
from the state treasury pay all or
part of the salary of public school
speech correctionists.

RAINED OUT--Rain-spattered army officers stand at attention as wind whips their drenched uniforms during what was scheduled
to be a mass retirement ceremony for 60 colonels and five generals. Only 15 - two generals and 13 colonels -- appeared for their final
review in the near 90 degree heat at Washington's Fort McNair. A surprise thunderstorm added to their dampened discomfort.

ONE DIMENSIONAL?-Rita Stazi, Miss Italy in the recent Miss
,Universe contest had a few feline remarks for Christiane Martel
(left) of France, the winner: "Why, she has no legs . .. I mean
she has no ankles-her legs are one dimensional." But Myrna
Hansen (right) of Chicago, Miss U.S.A. who finished second,
said she thought Miss Stazi ought to show a "little more sports-.
manship."

works, Robert Casadesus' Danses
Mediterraneennes, Britten's In-
troduction and Rondo alla Bur-
lesca, and Rachmaninoff's Second
Suite, op. 17, will be heard.
Commenting on the program
Prof. Fishburne declared that
"we are not interested in two
pianos merely for the sake of
playing anything, like transcrip-
tions of music originally writ.
ten for other instrumentations,
but concern ourselves rather
with the medium's legitimate
literature, with music actually
composed for two pianos. This
literature is small and limited,
but it is still charming and
should be heard."
Admission to the concert is open
to the public without charge.
