In Hot Finale

Summer turned on the steam
heat in much of the nation yes-
Temperatures of 90-plus were
recorded at many points. It was
humid, too, in a long hot belt that
extended from California through
the Southwest and Midwest and
reached into the East.

READINGS were in the 80s and
low 90s in the East, topped 90 in
St. Louis, Chicago, Milwaukee,
Omaha, Denver and Indianapolis
and were over the 100 mark in
Blythe, Calif., and Tucson, Ariz.
Phoenix, Ariz., had 109 and

June on record in most Texas
cities. Dallas, for example, had
14 days of 100 or higher maxi-

The best rains in several months
were reported in some sections of
Western Oklahoma yesterday. The
fall amounted to more than an

a drought-breaker but farmers
were elated by the lift the mois-

"It is striking what a large partt
women play in Greek tragedy,"1
prefaced Robert S. C. Levens, Pro-
fessor of Classics at Oxford Uni-
versity yesterday in speaking of;
Women of Greek Tragedy."
Prof. Levens went on to say that
the Greek tragedians only had two
outstanding male characters with
women dominating the scene al-
most entirely contrasted to Shake-
speare who characterized very few
ACCORDING TO Prof. Levens
this is even the more surprising
because the women of Athens in
5 B. C. were "in a position of
social inferiority," and there were
no women on the stage.
The reason for this peculiar-
ity explained Prof. Levens was
the fact that Greek tragedians
based their plots on Homeric
epics and others of the Homeric
period in which women were
not so secluded.
In the Homeric age of royalty
and warfare "Women had a great
deal at stake, and they were the
great sufferers," he said. "This
had the effect of making their per-
sonal relationships a matter of
great intensity," thus enabling
such playwrights as Euripedes and
Aeschylus to create moving and
emotional characters like Cas-
sandra, Clytemnestra, and Medea.
ONE REASON for depicting wo-
men so prolificly in plays, was
that, "The dramatists realized wo-
man's emotional strength, her ten-
acity of purpose, her authority,
and her ability to make a grown
man feel like a little boy."
To ilustrate some of her hus-
band's points and to give the
audience a very real experience,
Daphne Levens gave dramatic
readings from "Agememnon" by
Aeschylus portraying both Cas-
sandra and Clyemnestra.
She also read selections from the
"Trojan Women" by Euripedes and
from "Medea" by Sophocles. The
"FOURIER Transformation and
X-Ray Diffraction of Crystals"
will be discussed by P. P. Ewald
of the Brooklyn Polytechnic In-
stitute at 9 a.m. in 1400 Chemistry
Following this there will be a
lecture on the "Experimental
Studies of Crystal Structures" giv-
en by William N. Lipscomb of the
University of Minnesota at 10 a.m.

professor of speech will lecture on

fore the speech assembly at 3 p.m.

"GALAXIES: Their Composition

by Walter Baade, astronomer,
Mount Wilson and Palomar obser-
vatories at 2 p.m. in 1400 Chem-
istry Bldg. He will be followed by
Dr. George Gamow of George
Washington University who will

PROF. T. C. Rosenbloom of the
University of Minnesota will dis-

Luncheon Meeting at 1 p.m. in

Medea monologue was given in the
original Greek after which Prof.
Levens jokingly pronounced that
it is possible to learn Greek in one
year as Mrs. Levens had only be-
gun its study last September.
LANSING - (IP) - Michigan's
state deficit for the 1952-53 fiscal
year yesterday was estimated at
Fiscal officials said, however,
that it would be at least two
months before they determined ex-
actly how much the state is in the
The state treasury and auditor
general's departments said the
state books would be kept open
for another 30 days until all bills
and revenue collections are in-
cluded. They said another 30 days
would be required to complete an
accounting of the fiscal year end-
The $55,000,000 estimate was
reached by subtracting additional
revenue obtained in the past two
months from the $90,000,000 pre-
dicted deficit which faced the leg-
islature- this year.
The largest revenue item was
the $35,000,000 supposed to be ob-
tained by shifting the due date of
the corporation franchise tax from
August to May. Officials said this
shift has not yet produced all the
revenue that was expected but
that part of the loss was offset by
incrpased sales tax collections.
