Sidney Kaplan, playing the role
of the British king did the theater

, Although Mr. Kaplan's diction-
as well trained as it was seemed
to get in the way of some of the
lines, he handled the part of the
king with all the charm and vigor
which could have been expected.
His two lder daughters, played
by Jacquelyn Miller and Bonna
Tebo, were excerpts from the Con
derella fairy tale, though, end un
less they were told to look like
puppets by the director, they mis
sed the riles. However, the over
all effect which, they protrayed was
decent. The roles lacked person
ality; a certain amount of charac
ter was present. f-
The third daughter, played by
Phyllis Chard, was better, I feel,
and probably had the type role
more easily played by a college
drama student.

floor of the Senate that Dick Hage
meler be allowed to speak to the
Senate on the topic, Spring Day.
In his talk before the Senate,
Hagemeier presented the plans for
Spring Day on May 3 formulated
by the Spring Day Committee.
The plans included the combining
of the Farmer's Fair, the Union
Birthday Party and last year'f
half-day Spring Day Into one full
dy celebration.
"The purpose of the Spring Day
is to unite the Ag.and City Cam
puses and to unite Greeks and
Independents," said Hagemeier.
Hagemeier then announced the
schedule of events for Spring Day.
The schedule is: 8:00 a big parade
which will be a mass migration to
the Ag Campus where the events
will take place; 9:00 to 12:00
Spring Day Events such as tug-of-war;
12:00 to 1:30 a barbecue;
1:30 Rodeo; 4:30 on, a carnival,
and at 8:30 a street dance.
The next day. May 4. Is Ivv
Day and the celebration is sched
uled to continue with the . tradi
tional Ivy day events.
"The express purpose of Spring
Day, besides affording an oppor
tunity for the students and faculty
to have a good time, is to provide
a means for nominally separated
groups to become acquainted and
bring about university," stated
Last year's Spring Day was a
half-day event which combined
with the Union's Birthday party.
The celebration was held In and
around the Union. A carnival and
street dance were held Friday
night after events in the afternoon.
"This year's Spring Day, which
will be held at the Ag Campus,
is designed to be on a much larger
scale than last year's event," said
"The addition of the Farmer's
Fair has added the events of a
rodeo and barbecue and has given
us enough events to fill a full
day's schedule," he further stated.
The subject of allowing students
to vote on Senate Faculty Commit
tees was not on the agenda of the
Faculty Senate.
Further business consisted of re
ports by the University Studies
Committee and the Committee on
Student Council. Also the awardins

The annual Motar oBard For

days this year instead of the usual

The reason for the extra day,
according to Linda Buthman, pub
licity chairman, is the increased
interest of foreign students in the
available for it.
Scheduled for April 15, 16 and
17, the tour will attempt to give
University foreign students a rep
resentative view of Nebraska.
On Monday the students will visit
Boys Town, Joslyn Memorial Art
Center, the Omaha Stockyards
and will spend the night in Grand
On Tuesday, they will see the
Lexington alfalfa mills, the irri
gation center and visit a cattle
ranch. Then the tour will continue
to Curtis, where the sutdents will
visit the high school and attend
a square dance in the evening.
On Wednesday the tour will
leave for Holdrege where they will
visit the Trj-County Irrigation
Project. From there the students
will go to Hastings to see the col

of Yesterday.
Last year 39 students attended

on roles were obvious doubles, but
I don't think a person who attends
the drama should be looking for
the little faults with such a drama
as King Lear.
Kudos go to Dr. Dallas Williams
who handled the dramatic aspects
of the production. He had told me
about a week ago that he was un
sure of the reception Lear would
receive. I think that every person
in the University and out! who
has an interest in the Bard should
see the play and the job the Williams-Kaplan
duo has done.
One other point might be men
tioned and that was the playing of
Bob Wells as Edmund. Wells had
the difficult job og being the "tie
up" man J don't know what else
he could ba called.) He appeared,
as it were, between the major ac
tion spots in the play and "plotted"
for the audience. In his first Uni
versity Theater show, he did him
self proud.
From all spects, the production
of Lear was worth the long time it
took to produce. I feel that the job
of cutting the play which in itself
was a tricky task was handled
sure.y and accurately by Dr. Wil
iams. This week I hope other members
o ftlie University community will
be able to enjoy Lear which will
run through Saturday evening,
