A near-capacity crowd filed
Into the Nebraska Theater Tues
day night to view the first per
formance of Agnes Moorehead's
'Redhead1 Defines Profession;
Discloses Ambition To Teach
Td almost like to try my hand
at school teaching," Agnes
Moorehead told admiring on
lookers after her stage presenta
tion of "phantasy and folklore"
Tuesday evening.
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."
After her portrayal of "Sorry,
Vi . ong Number," a terrifying in
fight into the imminence of
death. 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 said that she
used only her favorite selections
and had quite a store to draw
from. Most frequently used in
recent performances have been

James Thurber, Rupert Brooke,

Devil's Paradise" is the theme
for the Cosmopolitan Club's an
nual carnival to be held in the
Union Ballroom Saturday,
March 6 from 8 to 12 p.m.
This is the club's big event of
the year and according to John
Zacharia, president of the or

"We have," continued Zach

The feature of the evening
will be an hour long floor show
which will bring nearly all of
the more than 150 University for
eign students onto the stage. The
floor show will be divided into

of the countries represented.
"Besides music and songs from
Germany and the Philippines,
dances from Hawaii and Latvia,
skits from Iran and other forms
of comopolitan entertainment,
the American members of the
club will represent the US in
their own skit," said zacharia.

and going into some rather use
less household hints, she pro
ceeded to prove why she is
called "The Fabulous Bedhead."
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.

Five Indictments Revealed
WASHINGTON Five additional indictments charging 18 indi

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
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.

WASHINGTON Liquidations and government-ignored starva

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.
