Review: Opera 'Inlemfmg,' 'Entertaining' If operas were judged exclu sively on the basis of music and acting, the Department of Music's presentation of "The Marriage of Figaro" would score nearly 100 percent. The eight member cast under the direction of Leon Lishner and Earl Jenkins gave Mozart's classic everything they had, which was quite a bit. Thus we saw fine examples of the actor-singer combination in performers like Rodney Walker as Figaro, Jodene Kuxhaus as Su sanna and Phyllis Malony as Cher ubino. Miss Malony, in particular, gave her role a good humor, grace, and sparkling personality which pleased the opening night crowd. As thespians the entire cast displayed some weaknesses shyness in making gestures and lack of motivation in responses The Student Council passed a motion Wednesday "respectfully requesting the Faculty Senate to allow the student representatives on the Senate Committees the right to vote at the discretion of the in dividual committees." The motion, made by Council Spring Day: Chairman, Members Selected Dick" Hagemeier was named chairman of the Spring Day Com mittee by the Student Council Wednesday. Other memebers of the commit tee elected by the Council were Sandra Kadlecek, Dorothy Beech ner. Joanne Bender. Georgann Humphrey and Ken Wehrman.

Snowball: Slated fig ay Bud Holloway and his orchestra have been engaged to provide music for the ninth annual Snow ball Dance to be held tonight in the College Activities Building, Ag College, from 8:30 to 11:30. Airman Second Class Oscar Tischhouser of the Lincoln Air Force Base will be featured at intermission.

All basic ROTC cadets from any of the services may attend. In cluded in the program are re freshments, somkes and a movie. Representatives from the Navy, Army and Air Force ROTC staffs will be present to answer all ques tions. Some of the events planned by the Fershing Rifles for this semes ter are the Field Problem, Spring Dinner Dance, Drill Meet and a field trip to Washington, D.C. but these may be chalked up to inexperience and were only inter mittent. (The opera is being given by al ternating casts, and unfortunately I was only able to see the first night of the four performance run.) In addition to sureness of pitch and fine ensemble work, the sing ers demonstrated almost invari ably good articulation. The au dience was able to understand nearly every word of the libretto, which was a much finer work than the sometimes ludicrous script of last year's "LaBoheme." But unfortunately one must atso consider the staging of the current production. The movement and stage pictures prescribed by Lish ner were repetitious. Lignting was used only n illuminate the stage, vice-president Marvin Breslow, will be delivered to Dean of Student Affairs, J. P. Colbert. Colbert, in a formal letter to faculty committees with student representation dated Jan. 17, point ed out that a Senate resolution of Dec. 13, 1955 removed the right for students to vote on faculty com mittees. Faculty committees with student representatives include the Senate Calendar Committee, with two stu dent members; the Commence ment Committee, with two student members; the Committee on Se mester Examinations, two student members; and the Senate Commit tee on Student Affairs, subcommit tees on General Organizations, -which has two student members; Social Affairs, two student mem bers and Student Publications, three student members. Student members of the publi cations board were not allowed to vote in the Jan. 18 interviews for this semester's Nebraskan staff because of the Dec. 13, 1955 Senate resolution. In other Council action a motion" introduced by John Kinnier to form "a committee with the pur pose of investigating the possibility of and to make plans for the pre sentation of student views to the legislature of the state of Nebras ka concerning the University's budget." Dave Keene, chairman of the University Parking Appeals Board, read a letter from Dean Colbert to Chancellor Hardin recommend ing the formation of a central planning committee for the study fo the parking problem.

Sunday Night Movie This week's Union Sunday Night Movie, "The Private War Of Ma jor Benson" starring Charleton Heston, Julie Adams and Sal Mi neo, will be shown in the Union Ballroom at 7:30 p.m. It is the delightfu) jtory of v. R.O.T.C. school for youngsters and is presented in print by Techni color. never to create atmosphere or heighten dramatic effects. And the set which consisted almost en tirely of four painted screens was singularly ineffective; again we saw an example of extreme repetition, which could have been eliminated with a little ingenuity. Primarily because of the three faults I have mentioned, "The Marriage of Figaro" lacked the dramatic excitement . it might otherwise have possessed. One re grets that the University Theatre and the music department are no longer cooperating to present op eras like "La Boheme" and "The Consul." St:.li, the current feature at How ell Memorial is an interesting and enttertainb.g presentation. "Th Marriage of Figaro" will continue to run through Saturday night.
