"The Titan," story of Michelan
gelo, will have its local premiere
as an extra in the Summer Artist
Series, Thursday, July 13, in the
Union Ballroom. Film-time will be
8 p.m. on this feature which dram
atizes the life and the work of the
great Renaissance artist against
the rich and colorful background
of the Italy of the Medicis.
To create the vived portrait of
the man who made the glory of
the Renaissance eternal, producer
Robert J. Flaherty's camera
searched out virtually all of Mich
aelangelo's superb works, many of
them photographed for the first
time. The greater part of the film
was made possible through the
close cooperation of the Vatican,
resulting in such rarely photo
graphed scenes as the altar mas
terpiece, the "Last Judgment,"
and the story of the Creation on
the famed ceiling of the Sistine
Chapel in Rome.
"The Titan" was produced by
Flaherty in association with Rob
ert Snyder and Ralph Alswang
ana was two years in production,
"namiy in Rome and Florence.
Following its American pre
miere in New York City in 1950,
"The Titan" received an unprec
edented welcome from critics in
film, music, and art circles. Pub
lic response outdistanced the criti
cal acclaim with shattered box
office records marking every one
of the film's early engagements.
The film, available through
United Ar'lsts, is being released
wily to schools and colleges, prior
to a later commercial release date.

DRAMA . . .
By W. E. Kunhart
Undoubtedly one of the fastest
moving British farce-comedies of
the past few decades is being
presented at the Hayloft Theater
The play, "George and Mar
garet," is filled with the ever
preset t, "dry British humor."
Althcugh slow in starting, it soon
rollicked along and kept the
audience in laughter until the
The comedy, cleverly written
by Gerald Sovory, is about th
typically British family of Sir
Malcolm Garth-Bander. Sir
Malcolm was played superbly by
Lou Girard; the very capable di
rector of the Hayloft Theater
productions. Mrs. Garth-Bander,
portrayed by Alexandra Jack,
was a fine presentation of a
mother too busy with social af
fairs to be concerned with her
David Andrews, as Dudley
Garth-Bander was just a little
too American for this British
comedy; but received many
laughs for his humorous per
formance. Richard Miller
brought forth the genuine British
character with his stuffy accent,
and starched humor, as Claude,
the old brother. Claude falls in
love with Gladys, the family
maid and upon accounting his
desire to wed her is disowned
by his mother. All goes well
when the family feels he is jus
tified so mother has to swallow
her pride and allow Claude to
marry the girl with less family
Judith Hunter, as "Frankie,"
the young and beautiful Garth
Bander daughter; falls madly in
love with Roger Frampton, who
is portrayed by Arthur Howe.
Miss Hunter plays the tender,
and affectionate sweetheart won
derfully; but seems to lack the
true British character in her part.
I should like to mention the
fine performance of the versa
tile character-actor, Arthur
Howe. In last week's production
Mr. Howe played Mr. Harrington
in "The Patsy," a three act
comedy by Barry Conners. This
week in a completely different
type part he portrayed a young
man enhanced with the love of a
eirl he did not unrtprstanrl Mv
congratulations to Mr. Howe for
his many fine abilities, and to at
least one aaaea exterior facility!
Mary Lou Blattspieler, as
Gladys, the Garth-Bander maid,
gave a good performance as a
young lady frustrated between
loyany to ner Mistress and love
to her sweetheart. Upon the an
nouncement of her intended
marriage to Claude she is dis
charged from her job, and a new
maid is emrjloved. Twila Walter
as "Beer," the new maid helps'
to Dnng tne comedy to a climax
and leave the audience in up-
A brief mention of one of those
things we often hear about; but
very seldom happens to com
plete a very enjoyable evening
of entertainment Just after
the ooeninff curtain of af TU7A a
large Persian Cat quietly strolled
onio uie stage and kept the audi
ence howline with lauehtr
its careful investigation of the
stage setting and the actors
there-on. Then with
assistance from off starve tVi
was ushered from behind the

of seats in the audience; later
to slip into the darkness and un

Conferences and clinics are a
big feature of the summer quar
ter at the University of Colorado
at Boulder. Twenty-eight high
school students from all parts of
the United States are enrolled in
a four-week speech institute. The
institute is designed to equip the
students to return to their high
schools as more effective leaders.
Public speaking and voice train
ing are included in both forensic
and dramatic specialties, with
small classes and labs being held
to insure individual attention.
On the docket for July 24 to
Aug. 11 is a Rocky Mountain
Writers conference. One of the
outstanding speakers at the clinic
will be Walter VanTilburg Clark,
author of "The Ox -bow Incident."
Iowa State Teachers College at
Cedar Falls, Iowa has added a
new publication. This time it is
a handbook, not for students, but
for the faculty. Primary purpose
of the handbook, titled "You and
Your College," is to "bolster the
ego" of the more than 300 mem
bers of the faculty.
Another new feature at the
Iowa school is an upside-down
television antenna. The "dipoles"
of the stacked array have been
mounted upside-down. It has been
discovered that mounting the
"live" side of the antenna ele
ments on the top and the
"ground" side below cuts ignition
interference and increases recep
tion of high angle television ra
diations. Eight Kansas State college
bathing beauties were entered in
the "Miss K-State" contest as part
of the annual college swimming
party. One of the features of the
party was a diving exhibition
given by five students. One of the
divers was formrely a coach of
the German Olympic diving en
tries. Red Cross . .
