Speaking of her profession in an interview to the Nebraskan, Miss Moorehead said that it was -certainly a strange one all right" and added, philosophically, that sometimes it made one "feel so good" but at other times the stage could be "terribly discon certing." WITH THIS in mind Miss Moorehead thought she some time might like to put her doc tor's degree from the University of Wisconsin into operation, be "come a professor and "feel good all the time."

Miss Moorehead said that Charles Laughton thought it best to read something "of a lighter nature" and let the audience leave with a "pleasant taste in their mouths." She ended with excerpts from Shaw's "Don Juan in Hell." THE PURPOSE behind her presentations, explained Miss Moorehead was to "revive in terest in interpretive reading" and give people a new insight into someone else's life and per haps "get them to thinking a little bit."

Miss Moorehead's superb pre sentation drew rave notices from the critical looking audience and it's no wonder. Starting with a cille Fletcher, "Sorry Wrong Number." IN THE latter number Miss Moorehead works herself into an emotional frenzy and seems to metamorphose from Miss Moore head to a nervous, frightened in valid to a pathetically hysterical figure in a matter of minutes. "It's extremely difficult to do," said Miss Moorehead and added that she "hated to do it twice in one evening." f Grand Slam, Maybe? Bridge fans (1. to r.)

The endowment provides for yearly additions to the collection. Herself 'Fabulous' rather lackadasical introduction and going into some rather use less household hints, she pro ceeded to prove why she is called "The Fabulous Bedhead." HER READING of a Ring Lardner's masterpiece, "Some Like 'em Hot, Some Like 'em Cold," also showed why she has been lauded for her ability to change her voice beyond recog nition. The letters written back and forth by a man-hungry wo man and a seemingly nonsensical man were very humorous and entertaining, especially when the male side of the story told of a marriage much to the forlorn woman's distraught. "Sorry, Wrrong Number," was the climax. It drew a few chuckles at first, but by the time she neared the finish most of the audience was convinced that it was a little nerve-shattering.

Action of the play centers around the antics of a small group of convalescents in a Brit ish military hospital. The comedy is heightened by the author's skillful exploitation of each man's particular characteirstics.

The object of the National Conference is to promote "justice, amity, under standing and co-operation among Protestants, Catholics and Jews."

Firestone received the award in 1953 for work in the field of religious understanding. Lardner, Shaw pretation of an invalid woman who hears over the telephone that a woman is scheduled to be killed later in the night was just as it should be. When the invalid found out that she was the wo man in question, the story came to a screaming halt. The entire performance came to an end soon after her reading, concern ing artistry, from Bernard Shaw's, "Don Juan In Hell." MISS MOOREHEAD was helped now and then by Robert Gist, who was billed as co-star but didn't do a thing except murmur. The fabulous redhead took the applause in stride and she deserved it.

The Outside World Five Indictments Revealed WASHINGTON Five additional indictments charging 18 indi viduals and seven corporations with diverse offenses in connection with the disposal of surplus ships from World War II have been returned by a federal grand jury, announced Attorney General Brownell. Former Rep. Joseph Casey (D-Mass) was among those indicted. The indictments were approved by a grand jury last April 23 but were kept secret until the government decided that some of the defendants living abroad are likely never to return to the United States. This is the second time Casey has been named in an indictment case. He has been accused of conspiracy to breach a purchase contract with the government by sale of stock in the purchasing company to others without approval of the Maritime Commission.

Forboding Future For Asia WASHINGTON Liquidations and government-ignored starva tion have been blamed for the death of about 15 million Chinese Reds in 1949 by Assistant Secretary of State Walter Robertson, whose province is Far Eastern affairs. Robertson told Congress that this is about the bloodiest pattern that communists have followed in any country in the world. Robertson said the department anticipates in Asia's future "emergencies, crisis and problems of the greatest importance and magnitude." A Dip Or A Depression? WASHINGTON Former President Herbert Hoover said he does not forsee an inevitable depression but he blames the present trouble on a mixture of surplus production and "dehydrated optimism." This is only a passing dip, a slump, a readjustment, or a recession, not a great depression, Hoover declared. The former President proposed a remedy along, lines suggested by President Eisenhower reducing taxes, if necessary, to increase the buying power of all the people so they can absorb surplus production and raise the standard of living. World-Wide Coffee Controversy NEW YORK If Americans think coffee is expensive in this country they would probably really complain if they lived behind the Iron Curtain. In Russia a pound of coffee costs $4.78; in Romania, $6.47; in Hungary, $13.54; in Czechoslovakia, $18.85; in Bulgaria $21.39, and in Poland $45.45. Prices are even higher on the black market, which is the only place coffee can be purchased after store supplies are exhausted, since the supply is governed by the government. Since workers behind the Iron Curtain earn lower wages than those in capitalist countries, coffee is a luxury. The Com munist elite are the only ones who can afford the beverage.
