THE PREPARATION

THE WAITING .. .

* * *
By FRAN SHELDON
Behind the bright lights and the
glitter, the dancing and the sing-
ing of "Tales of Hoffmann" lie
months of work, anxiety and wait-
ing.
Countless rehearsals and ob-
stacles that have been overcome
will culminate when the speech
department and the School of Mu-
sic combine to bring to the stage
of the Lydia Mendelssohn theater
tonight its presentation of Jac-
ques Offenbach's popular opera of
fantasy.
** *
ON STAGE the various groups
-singers, actors, dancers, musi-
cians-will come together in a
unified whole. They will have lost
their piece-work quality-become
finished prodpucts.
But behind the scenes the in-
completeness and anticipation,
the worry and anxiety will con-
tinue to be part of the "back-
stage threatrical atmosphere."
The finish will not come until
the final curtain goes down on
Monday.
The 130 cast members will never
be on the stage together-except
to take their curtain call.
Throughout the performance in
odd corners of the theater, groups
of people will be huddled.
Among them ballerinas cueing,
bartenders on their lines, singers
humming their melodies, and prop
and wardrobe people making last-
minute alterations will rush from
place to place.
And in the wmgs, waiting for
the right second ...
* *
ON STAGE, the opera will tell
of the three loves of Hoffmann, the
latter played by Charles Green.
His association with a dancing
doll, Olympia, a courtesan, Julieta,
and an opera singer, Antonia, are
musically told-translated from
their original French by Prof. Jo-
self Blatt of the School of Musid,
who is also musical director and
conductor.
Prof. Valentine Windt, of the
speech department is stage di-
rector'.

A new clue has been added to
the solution of the mystery of
cancer.
Scientists at the University
Medical School have found that
premature babies may have cer-
tain chemical characteristics in
common with those of cancer.
By doing further investigation
in this field, they hope to alleviate
the high death rate among pre-
mature infants and possibly to de-
velop an early diagnosis of cancer.
, * * *'
AN INITIAL GRANT from Play-
tex Research Institute, a non-
profit foundation devoted to pedi-
atrics, enables the research team
to carry on its work.
EventsToday
PROF. PERCIVAL PRICE of the
music school will present a Caril-
lon recital at 7:15 p.m.
The program will include works
of Bach, Chopin, Schubert, Brit-
ten, Menotti, Mozart, Verdi, Ber-
lioz, and folk melodies.
GLEN WALKER, Grad., will
present a clarinet recital at 8:30

Finding the identical chemical
substances in the urine of both
premature infants and children
with cancer, the scientists hope
to confirm the theory that pre-
mature infants go through a
period of low oxygen metabo-
lism, similar to that existing in
cancer. Low oxygen metabolism,
explained as a period of sub-
normal activity in the "life pro-
cess," results in the emission as
by-products of the chemical
substances common to both pre-
mature babies and cancer.
This life process known as meta-
bolism therefore may provide the
answer to the high death rate
among premature babies, a third
of whom meet death from un-
known causes.
The nature of these substances
and their relationship to factors
in the life process has not been
discovered, but under a second
grant from the Playtex Park Re-
search Institute, investigation is
underway.
Grants now amounting to $18,-
750 have been advaiced to sup-
port the research team composed

ant Professor of Pediatrics, Dr.

AND FINALLY

A fire that caused the death of
several persons at its premier
caused the opera to be considered
a "hoodoo," and because of this
for many years it was shelved.
* * *
ATTAINING popularity compar-
tively recently, "Tales of Hoff-
mann" had its premier in Vienna
in 1881. Now music such as the
student's drinking chorus and
"Barcaxrole" are internationally
famous.
The University Summer Session
orchestra will provide the instru-
mental accompaniment for the
two choruses and the nine dancers
as well as for the 12 principle cast
members who are opera students
in the music school.
Four performances have been
scheduled. In adition to tonight,
tomorrow and Saturday, a final
show will be given on Monday. All
performances will begin at 8 p.m.

Popp Goes 1own
IONIA -(p)- Alderman Ed-
ward Popp could blame no one
but himself when the City
Council refused to buy him a
new chair.
Popp broke his chair in the
council chambers. He leaned
back too far and the cast iron
leg snapped. He picked him-
self up from the floor and de-
manded a new chair.
"It isn't in the budget," other
aldermen told him Tuesday.
Popp is chairman of the com-
mittee that wrote the budget.
