Payne To Direct 'Hamlet' Production

B. Iden Payne, noted Shake-
spearean actor, teacher and di-
rector, will be guest director for
the Department of Speech produc-
tion o Shakespeare's "Hamlet,"
to be presented July 7-10.
Payne has been connected with
the theatre since his first stage
appearance in 1899, at the Theatre
Royal, Worchester, as Diggory in
"She Stoops to Conquer." His first
performance in London was at the
Lyceum in 1900 in "King Henry
Longest Play
Particularily interested in Shake-
spearean productions, Payne com-
mented that "Hamlet," being the
longest of Shakespeare's plays
(3,700 lines), was being cut to a
t w o-and-one-half-hour production
for the Summer Session presenta-
tion in Lydia Mendelssohn.
No characters, however, are be-
ing cut from their usual roles. The
shortening of the four-hour play
will be within the various scenes
and speeches, he explained.
Payne will also act the role of
Puff in Richard Brinsley Sheri-
dan's "The Critic." He is teaching
a course in "Period Styles of Act-
ing" at the University this summer.
For eleven years the guest di-
rector was associated with Miss
Horniman and her management of
the Midland and Gaiety Theatres
in Manchester and the Abbey
Theatre in Dublin.
From 1911 until 1913 Mr. Payne
organized repertory companies and
toured Sheffield, Loeds, Glasgow
and Edinburgh. In .1913 he came
to the United States and directed
productions at the Fine Arts Thea-
tre in Chicago. He was appointed
Art Director of the Little Theatre
in Philadelphia in 1914.
"The Critic"
It was in the Princess Theatre
in New York in 1915 that Payne
first played his famous acting role
of Puff in Sheridan's "The Critic."
From 1916 to 1920 he served as
General Producer to Charles Froh-
man, Inc. and then until 1934 he
was a visiting professor at Carne-
gie Institute of Technology.
Payne was director of the Shake-
speare Memorial Theatre, Strat-
ford-on-Avon from 1935 until 1942,
when he was appointed head of
the American Shakespeare Com-
pany by the American Theatre

Youth Needs
Of Oldsters
In order to adequately prepare
them for their later years, school
children must be taught that some
day they will be old like their
This was the concensus of panel
members participating th the sev-
enth annual conference on aging
at the University of Michigan re-
centW. Some 500 persons from
throughout the nation who believe
that "Aging Is Everybody's Busi-
ness"-the theme of the conference
-attended the gathering which
ended Wednesday.
"To those not yet in the aging
group must come the true reali-
zation that age and experience are
educational and that the oldster
really has something to contribute
if given the opportunity," stated
Dr. Frederick C. Swartz, physician
and president of the board of Ing-
ham County Hospital at Okemos.
"Also since many of the younger
group will some day be a part
of this aging section it behooves
them to begin applying the Golden
Rule early in life.
"The changes desired can be
brought about only by education.
The aging group must be taught
that to keep from being discrim-
inated against, they must be able
to carry their own load, provide
for themselves, contribute ade-
quately to the community needs.
Educational Change
The need for an educational
change to put greater stress on
problems of aging and of the aged
also was mentioned by William
Posner, assistant director of the
Jewish Community Services of
Long Island. "We have been so
preoccupied with emphasis on the
beginning phases of living that we
have forgotten the middle and
ending phases in which we spend
most of our time.
A greater awareness of the eco-
nomic problems of older persons
can be brought about by encourag-
ing the schools "to plant t h e
thought in the student mind that
it is desirable to put something
aside in middle years to be used
for support in later years," ac-
cording to Prof. Robert L. Peter-
son of management at the Univer-
sity of Illinois.
"We can change the current a-
pathy toward economic planning
for retirement by giving increased
publicity to the economic facts of
later life," he said. "Many persons
still are unaware that about one
third of those over 65 currently
are without funds of their own
and must rely on families, friends
or charity."
It is estimated that there now
are more than 13,000,000 persons
over 65 in the nation and that this
number is increasing about 400,000

Clouds Hide
Ecfipse Here
Cloudy skies obscured the asto-
nomical drama of the century from
late risers in Ann Arbor yesterday,
although those who got up for the
early minutes of the eclipse got
a better look at it.
University astronomers w h o
joined the group of 7,500 scientists
clustered on top of the rugged
Brockway Mountain in the Upper
Peninsula were disappointed in
their efforts to watch the phenom-
enon. Fog and clouds cut off all
but occasional climpses of the e-
However, the four-man team of
scientists from the Hayden Plani-
tarium of the American Museum
of Natural History in New York
and others who gathered at Iron-
wood in the Upper Peninsula had
perfect weather.
The Associated Press reported
that the influx of people who gath-
ered at Copper Harbor (near the
Brockway ridge) swamped the
housing accommodations. Many
would-be sungazers had to spend
the night on hotel porches or in
Sault Ste. Marie got a good view.
The moon covered 90 per cent of
the sun there and it got perceptibly
darker as the eclipse occurred.
In the lower peninsula, visibility
ranged from fair to poor and in
the Detroit area, only those who
were up at 6 a.m. saw any of the
show. Clouds came out shortly
thereafter and did not depart until
after 7 a.m.

turing highlights from the special
