1588; Spansh Armada Debacle

-Daily-Marge Crozier
"SINK THAT SHIP!"-Dorothy Davis and Thomas Arp, peeking from behind Spanish and English
warships, are portraying the sinking of the Spanish Armada, to be seen in the speech department
production of Richard Brinsley Sheridan's "The Critic," which will be presented at 8 p.m. tomorrow
through Saturday at the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
Sheridan's Farce, 'The Critic' To Be
Given at League Starting Tomorrow

Richard Brinsley Sheridan's re-
hearsal farce, "The Critic," will
be presented at 8 p.m. tomorrow
through Saturday at the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre as the third
offering on the Department of
Speech Summer Playbill.
According to Bruce Nary, busi-
ness manager of the Play ?roduc-
tions, so much attention has been
focused upon some of the more
obvious burlesque features of "The
Critic," that little has been paid
to the basis of real history which
furnishes much of the setting for
the play. Sheridan's text alludes
requently to events of current his-
a f

The immediate political situation
which confronted the First Lord of
Admiralty in 1779 was hostility be-
tween England and the allied forc-
es of France and Spain.
By the middle of the year the
French and Spanish fleets threat-
ened an invasion of England, and
in mid-August of 1779 the fleet
appeared off Plymouth. Before the
appearance of "The Critic," how-

John Kollen, pianist, a member
of the University faculty, will pre-
sent a concert at 8:30 p.m. tonight
in Rackham Lecture Hall.
The Beethoven program will in-
clude the Sonata (Quasi una fan-
tasia) in C-sharp minor, Op. 27,
No. 42-adagio sostnauto, allegret-

Following the intermission Kollen

largely allayed by the withdrawal
of the fleet, according to history.
Such was the general political
situation when Dangle picked up
his newspaper in the opening scene
of "The Critic" and read in its
headlines "nothing but about the
fleet and the nation." Study of the
historical setting of "The Critic"
reveals the significance of naming

An actual sea battle, staged be-
fore the audience will climax the
speech department production of
"The Critic." Explaining various
complications in this scene, Jack
E. Bender, scene designer, said
that model warships will be car-
ried across the stage by actors
concealed behind sea walls. The
ships will fire cannons which will
be accompanied by flashes of flame
and billows of smoke.
True to historical fact, the Span-
ish vessels will be larger and
more cumbersome than their Eng-
lish enemies, and realism of battle
will be carried out even to the
breaking and falling masts on the
warships' decks.
Concerning the scenery in gener-
al, Bender commented that the first
act scenery represents 18th Century
Georgian, while the second and
third acts use the Elizabethan set-

'U' Plans To1
Quit Big Ten
In 1906
"Pigeon toes are the character-
istic of all good catchers," said
Duffy, manager of the Philadel-
phia Phillies.
The fading print on the crumb-
ling yellow paper, also announced;
"Two bean-fed lady athletes
from Boston are to compete for
the female golf championship to-
These are excerpts from the
sports page of the Detroit Times
with a dateline of October 12, 1906,
found by Laurel Keene, Univer-
sity Research Security Officer, in
the back of an old mirror.
Leave the Big Ten
"Nearly everyone at the Univer-
sity," asserted the newspaper,
"wants it to withdraw from the
Western Conference and send its
track team to the Eastern Inter-
collegiate track meet next spring."
Keene, a collector of old books
as well as historical newspapers,
bought the mirror for 75 cents at
a household auction several years
ago. He did not find the newspaper
until recently, however, when he
decided to resilver the mirror and
removed the back partition.
"It was quite a coincidence, re-
marked Keene, "for a long time
ago my father was a reporter for
the Detroit Times."
The most interesting book Keene
possesses is one found in the bot-
tom of the Mississippi River by his
wife's grandfather.
The grandfather who built some
of the first iron smelters, worked
on the mountain railroads in
Chile, salvaged ships and collected
curios from all over the world.
The Old English book was found
in a salvaged ship. Entitled "A
Help to Discourse" the book was
published in 1623.
It contains many interesting and
wierd superstitions as well as com-
ments of the day, Keene explained.
And deals at length with such
questions as which came first-the
chicken or the egg, he added.
"Which of the days in the year
is the longest,"the book asks, and
then supplies the answer-"that
which has the shortest night."
Law Prog ram
A six-year program of coopera-
tion between law faculties of lead-
ing Japanese and American uni-
versities has been made possible
by a grant from the Ford Founda-
tion to the Institute of Interna-
tional Education, New York City.
The American schools taking
part in the program are the law
schools of Harvard and Stanford
Universities and the University of
Six Japanese university law fa-
culties are cooperating: the nation-
al universities of Kyoto, Tohoku,
and Tokyo; and the private uni-
versities of Chuo, Keio, and Wa-
seda. In addition, the JudicialRe-
search and Training Institute,
maintained by the Japanese Su-
preme Court for post-graduate law
training, has been invited to join
in the program.
The program is designed to fos-
ter a better understanding of the
important elements of law not
common to both nations' legal sys-
tems, and is planned to create in
the participating schools centers
of interest in the law of the other

The need for cooperative re-
search and study arises out of the
post-war changes in Japanese
laws. Originally drawn largely
from German sources, the legal
system of modern Japan was ex-
tensively revised during the Oc-
cupation and now represents a
unique combination of the Euro-
pean and Anglo-American legal
traditions, in addition to those of
Japanese origin.
The new Japanese Constitution
embodies many of the democratic
ideals and institutions found in
the U.S. Constitution; there has
also been in recent years import-
ant legislation similar to that of
the United States in such fields as
criminal law and procedure, ad-
ministrative law, corporation law,
labor law, anti-monopoly law, and
tax law.
A group of eight law teachers
will be sent this fall from the co-
operating Japanese institutions for
two years of research and advanc-
ed study in the three American
law schools. While this phase is
under way, law teachers from the
American schools will begin go-
ing to Japan for a year's work.

Remaining in the background of
a great institution and shunning
any publicity, Inex V. Bozorth has
exercised upersision over the Law-
yers Club of the Law School since
its organization in 1924.
Now after 27 years of firm but
gracious service to the nfany young
men of the club, Miss Bozorth is
retiring to return to her native
Oregon, aftera ktrip to Euruope.
Becoming talkative only when
reminiscing about the history of
the Lawyers Club with frequently-
visiting alumni, the demure direc-
tor continually refrains from speak-
ing about herself.
Recalls Beginning
Instead she recalls the beginning
of the Lawyers Club and the work
and generosity of the late Dean
Henry M. Bates of the Law School
and William W. Cook who donated
the Lawyers Club and Law Quad-

ed with references to the organiza-
tion of the Lawyers Club and the

Cook Dubious
Dean Bates was apparently satis-
fied with her qualifications but ac-
cording to Prof. John Reed of the
Law School, Cook had doubts about
having a woman as director of the
Club. Prof. Reed added that al-
though Cook objected to the pres-
ence of women in the club, Dean
Bates persuaded him to allow Miss
The competent woman has filled
the office of director since that
time with the exception of three
years during which she opened
Mosher-Jordan Hall. Prof. Reed ex-
plained that during her absence
the Club was managed so poorly
that her position as director was
never again disputed by Mr. Cook.
"We don't have many of the
problems of other dorms," Miss
Bozorth observed, speaking of her
duties as director. "I just advise
the students and see that the busi-
ness of operating the Club goes
on," she explained modestly.
A Director's Job
The "business" includes acting
as administrator, housemother, so-
cial director and advisor to 320
student members and being the
hostess to more than 600 graduate
and honorary members of the Law-
yers Club. She has been hostess
for such dignitaries as Sen. Wayne
Morse and Justice Felix Frank-
furter of the United States Supreme
"My association with the faculty
and students of the Law School
has been very happy," Miss Bo-
zorth said, summarizing her job
as director.
Speaking of his acquaintance
with Miss Bozorth, Prof. Paul Kau-
per of the. Law School spoke of
her as a "very gracious and com-

William K. Van't Hfo'.54L,com-
mented that he was impressed by
the "way, she has been able to
combine a hard-headed business
sense with a w a r m - hearted ap-
proach and understanding to the
student and his problems."
"In working with her," he con-
tinued, "you learn that she has
a fine sense of humor and has
more insight into the average law
student and what makes him tick
than even he realizes."
Former President of the Law-
ers Club Hugh Harness, '54L, ob-
served that Miss Bozorth's "Friend-
ly and dignified manner has won
her the affection of all the students.
She will be greatly missed."
An oil portrait of Miss Bozorth,
contributed by her many friends in
the Law School, now hangs in the
Lawyer's Club.

teaching Shakespeare and visual
aid teaching were some of the as-
pects considered.
The panelists agreed t h a t
Shakespeare must be taught in
