an exclusive story about an inmate from the Nebraska

SINFONIA PLEDGES
'N
Day' Svmis, Errands Are forgotten
There are few traits which !
raise man above the status of
an ape; one of these is the ability
- to bend his thumb to meet his fin
gers; another is the ability to co
operate with his fellow man.
The Nebraska chapter of Sin
fonia, national professional mu
sic group, has shown a new type
of cooperation this semester. Its
pledges decided instead of the
usual informal initiation of fool
ish errands, swats or face-paintings,
they would like to do some
thing constructive, prodding the
active chapter approved. Their
idea was to set up a day of house
cleaning in the University's mu
sic building. Upon presenting this
idea to the active chapter, the
pledges found that the chapter ap
proved whole-heartedly.
Twenty-three pledges met Sat
urday morning all ready to give
the building & real scrubbing
wash walls, wood-work and win
dows. Dr. Arthur Westbrook, direc
tor of the School of Fine Arts and
chairman of the music depart
ment arranged with Henry Wos

From Henry James' classic
short-story, "The Turn of the
tcrew, William Archibald
has
fashioned a faithful and
at
mospheric play, "The Innocents."
In a production last Wednesday
and Thursday, the play came to
life with near-professional skill
and polish. Under the direction of
Marjorie Miller, a senior in Arts
and Sciences, the production re
vealed a fine feeling for mood and
suspense suspense which built
continuously from the beginning
to the final, dramatic endmg.
Marian Uhe, as Flora, conquered
her most difficult role with polish
and a sureness of timing which
made her part both convincing
and memorable. It is never easy
for a college student to play a
ten-year-old girl, but all difficul
ties were forgotten in Miss Uhe's
tender and wistful characteriza
tion. In the part of Miss Giddens.
Betty Lester showed the compe
tence and feeling which have
made her performances in Uni-
ing and rewarding. Apart from a
slight uncertainty in movement
and gesture, Miss Lester's per
formance was 1 strong and subtle;
her realization of the horrors
around her grew with the horror
of the audience, to a surer and
controlled climax.
