and become a citizen. He now

Miss Feldhahn and her moth
er attempted to leave Germany
thrnusrh Russia in 1941. They
now consider it fortunate that
their plans were thwarted. A
few days after their scheduled
departure Russia and Germany
were at war.
During the war years in Ber
lin, Miss Feldhahn was evacuated
several times with school groups
to escape allied bombing. Her
mother was once trapped in a col

"It's amazing what a person
can endure when it is neces

clares. When they reached Hamburg
they were only two of a vast
number of refugees. There was no
US council in Hamburg, so they
were still unable to establish
American associations but were
advised to go to the American
consul in Berlin.
In an effort to get back to the
German capital, they were picked
up by Russians and jailed for a
dav. Miss Feldhahn was one of a
few persons held for questioning.
Through enorts or ner mow
er she was released only minutes
before she would have been
forced to divulge her American
citizenship. Discovery of this
fact could have been unfortun
ate. Miss Feldhahn said.
After establishing her identity
in Berlin, she began medical tech
nician studies while awaiting a
chance to come to the United
States. That opportunity came in
the spring of 1948. It was made
possible by a Lincoln girl attached
to the Berlin YWCA, Margaret
Day (now Mrs. Carl G. Anthoni).
She arranged for Miss Feldhahn
to work as a housekeeper for her
parents. After the present semes
ter Miss Feldhahn will enter stu
dent technicianship at a local hos
pital. Mrs. Feldhahn, not allowed to
accompany her daughter because
of her German citizenship,
joined her husband in Australia.
She arrived in Vancouver. B. C,
last week. After a short trip
along the Pacific coast. Mrs.
Feldhahn joined her daughter in
Lincoln where she plans to
make her home.
As Miss Feldhahn expresses it:
"We're readv to settle down here
forever. After all that has hap
pened it's hard to describe one's
appreciation for the freedom,
friendliness, cooperation and
beauty of a city like Lincoln."

Phillips, Uhe, Stiver, Play Lead Roles
In Theater Production 'Homecoming
"Homecoming," a story of
hatred and jealousy, will be pre
sented by the Laboratory theater
Wednesday and Thursday.
A daughter who wants to be
"the wife of her father and the
mother of her brother," provides
the central theme for the play. A
guilty mother, a betrayed father,
a monstrous paramour, a bewil
dered son and the distraught
daughter heighted the conflict.
"Homecoming" is the first
part of Eugene O'NeilFs trag
edy, "Mourning Becomes Elec-
I tra." Each part of the three act
drama is a play in itself. O'Neill
adapted his play from the Greek
tragedy "Oresti" by Aeschyeus.
' The producer of "Homecoming,"
(Wes Jensby, said, "It is one of
'those plays which if effectively
I done, leaves the audience with the
I feeling of tragic catharsis."
' The role of Christine, the
mother will be portrayed by
Christine Phillips and that of the
daughter, Lavina, by Marian Uhe,
Miss Uhe and Miss Phillips said
that the play was a "tremendous
challenge." They explained that
neither one of them has played
roles of this type before.
A speech major, Miss Phillips
has appeared in other University
productions including "The Glass
