they should seriously con

sneaks at their own schools.
"We (N.U.) have an un

Horse' Could Have Gone Farther
By Carroll Kraus
Colorful, gay and noisy but too mech
ankal. That is a brief description of University
Theatre's production of the farce "Three
Men on a Horse," which finished a four
night run in Howell Theatre Satui-day
The play was successful judging from
crowds at the last three performances and
response in general and very enjoyable,
but could have gone further.
It centered around the amazing ability
cf meek Erwin Trowbridge, a greeting
card writer, to pick horse race winners.
Erwin played by Kent Broadhurst, quar
rels with his wife, played by Nancy Wilson,
Then leaves his home in Ozone Heights,
N.J., skips work for a day, visits a bar,
and falls in with three horse players and
Mabel, an ex-Follies girl.
The gamblers realize their catch, hold
him in their hotel room but then realizes
his intuition works only on the O z o n e
Heights bus.
And like a horse race itself, where a 10-1
shot is the winner, "underdog" Erwin bol
sters his pocketbook, gets a raise in pay
from his boss and ends up with a once
again happy wife.
Too Frenzied
In general, the players' acting was too
frenzied, didn't come naturally and wasn't
believable. None of the actors seemed to
have a well-rounded character to portray
and none of the characters had any great
emotional depth.
- Everyone was creating a cartoon char
acter rather than someone who would be
more believable. In many cases it seemed
the actors were anticipating what move
they were supposed to make next instead
of acting spontaneously.
The play wag written in the 30's and the
script and dress was funnier then than
now. The time of the story was supposed, to
be the present, however, and Mabel, as an
ex-Follies girl, would be a grandma by

Finals Revision
Effective in Fall
Don Gable, chairman of the
Student Council Final Exams
committee, announced at the
Council meeting Wednesday
that a revised finals schedule
will be in effect' for the Fall
Semster of 1960.
This schedule, which was
drafted by Gable and his
committee for submission to
the Faculty Sub-Committee
on Final Exams recently was
approved and will be used for
the 1960 fall semester finals.
Gable's committee began
work on this schedule after a
Council member questioned
the reason for finals being
for morning classes when the
majority of University stu
dents had most of their
classes in the morning.
Gable submitted the draft
of his proposed finals sched
ule to the Council, which then
recommended that this sched
ule be submitted along with
the schedule submitted by
the Registar's office.
This was done when the
sub-committee on finals re
cently met and the original
draft by Gable was rejected
since the "block exams" were
not spaced properly.
Gable then revised the
schedule and submitted it to
the Faculty Sub-Committee
told the Council that the ju
diciary committee had con
sidered this m o v e careful
ly and had decided to take
necessary action since these
groups did not fulfill a "spe
cific all University function."
Clog Functions
He told the Council that the
YW-YMCA was represented
on the Council by the Univer
sity Council on Religion and
pointed out that an excessive
number of representatives
and votes would only clog the
Student Council's activities
and functions.
Chuck Wilson told the Coun
cil that Coed-Counselors was
soon to be part of the Uni
versity's counseling service
and would not be representa
tive of the students. The mo
tion for elimination of the two
representatives passed 20-4.
In other Council action con
cerning amendments to t h e
constitution, foreign students
representation was altered.
Bob Krohn, chairman of the
judiciary committee, moved
on Final Exams and it was
approved for the first semes
ter of the 1960-61 school term.
This schedule is also con
structed so that it will rotate
days with each semester. It
wiil greatly benefit students,
Gable said, since it has rem
edied the situation of placing
students who have 8, 9, 10
and 11 o'clock classes in the
position of having four finals
on four consecutive days.
16 his report to the Council
on the approval of the Final
Exam schedule, he also stat
ed that the sub-committee
had charged the students with
finding out what student opin
ion thought the purpose of fi
nal exams was.

But the play is well-written and gains
from its unusal situations.
Very Good
Among the actors, Dan Sobolik and Jim
Trester, who played the betters Patsy and,
Charlie, respectively, were very good.
Above average performances were reg
istered by Broadhurst, Zeff Bernstien
the third member of the gambling crew
and by Larry Long and Kathy Anderson,
who played Clarence and Mabel. However,
they were less natural than Sobolik and
Nancy Wilson as Erwin's wife couldn't
quite cope with the fast action and loud
yelling of the big men around her. Fresh
man Wally Seiler as Mr. Carver showed
potential in his second Howell perform
ance, but was overshadowed by others in
some ways.
Bill Klamm as Harry the bartender,
Mary Dee Paterson as Gloria the reporter
and Sharron Purbaugh as Gertrude the ele
vator operator didn't have too much to
work with.
Hurt Impression
Several spots in the show hurt the over
all impression. The dance scene done by
Mabel consisted of nary a true dance step,
and could have been one of the higher
points without any disturbance of good
Another scene showing a photographer
with a very pronounced limp almost turned
the play into a tragetiy for a minute. It was
unexpected in the action and tended to
cause the audience to wonder for what pur

tended for humor, it -failed.
Costumes used in "Three Men" were ex
aggerated, yet sets were simple. They
might have been better accepted if more
unusual. The hotel room, where two scenes
were presented, was neat and orderly. It
might have used a few cracks in the
In general, however, the play was well
worth attending. It was especially suited
for a college crowd.
that the amendment read:
"The representative of for

ber of the organization which
the Student Council shall
elect on the basis of serving
the interest of foreign stu
dents. No permanent organi
zation represented on the
Council will be eligible for
this selection."
Same Basis
Tom Frolik suggested that
all foreign students vote for
a representative on the same
basis that colleges select their
J. B. Fournier then moved
to amend the amendment to
read that "the organization
representing the foreign stu
dents must have at least fif
ty members." This motion
was defeated 22-2. A vote was
then taken on Krohn's motion
for amendment and this mo
tion lost 18-6.
Chuck Wilson then moved
that the Student Council rep
resentative of foreign stu
dents be elected by the for
eign students at the general
election in the spring. The
motion passed 24-1.
Don Epp moved to amend
the artcle in the constitution

to strike a sub-section which
states "an organization or

Council President Jack
Nielsen told the Council that
this small clause was per
haps one of the most impor

it keeps one man, who might
have been an undesirable
