Of Othello
Staff Writer
Tuesday's presentation of Othe
llo by the University Theatre
was truly a credit to the students
and instructors of the University.
Professor Dallas Williams has
produced what I believe to be
one of the finest shows that has
been seen by an audience of stu
dents. The acting in the play was just
short of miraculous as each pre-
former seemed to be molded into
the play. .
Jack Wenstrand played an
Othello which must be com
pared to a professional. The
part of Iago could not have been

As for supportine actors Mar

highly praised. Equally effective

The other actors who should
receive mention, although each
performer in the play did a
creditable job, are Dick Carson
in the role of Rodrigo and Di
ane Downing as Bianca.
