3,000 Persons
Attend Requiem
Says Wishnow
An estimated 3,000 persons
attended the music depart
m e n t's presentation of Ver
di's Requiem Sunday night
at the Coliseum.
Prof. Emanuel Wishnow,
director of the performance,
said that this topped last
year's attendance at the an
nual choral presentation of
the University.
He said he was "encour
aged" by the increased at
tendance, but had hoped that
more might attend.
Soloists Adelle Addison of
Porgy and Bess fame, Rose
mary Kuhlman and John
Alexander of New York and
Leon Lishner, assistant pro
fessor of music, appeared in
concert with the Choral Un
ion. Some 600 students from the
Ag College Chorus, the Uni
versity Singers, Madrigal
Singers, Men's Varsity Glee
Club, the two University cho
ruses .and the University
symphony orchestra participated.
, . .
Although "Diary" is a one
set show, the technical plot
is very extensive requiring
people to handle costume
changes and sound cues.
Heading the production staff
r Bernard Skalka, produc
tion manager; Luther Frost,
production manager; and
Margery Coffey assistant to
the director. The wardrobe
department is under the care
of Leanne Jensen.
Other supervisors in the
production side of the play
include stage crew, Phyllis
Elliot; property department,
Luther Frost; scenery depart
ment, Dick Marrs, and light
ing and sound, Jim MacDon
ald. Andy Wolvin is publicity
Chairman and Ken Tempero
is the house manager.
All other students must turn
in their worksheets at 208 Ad
ministration, or no cards can
be pulled, she explained.
The schedule for turning in
worksheets is: juniors and
seniors, May 16; sophomores,
May 17; and freshmen, May
18 and 19. Late worksheets
will be accepted on May 20.
Miss Laase pointed out that
students not turning in their
worksheets by that time may
register for summer school
on June 6 and for fall, Sept.
Accumulated Hours
Cards will be pulled accord
ing to the accumulated hours
earned by each student and
the order in which work
sheets are turned in.
Changes may be necessary
in the student's original
schedule, Mrs. Laase said.
To allow for these changes
and still make it possible for
a student to have a workable
schedule, she explained, stu
dents must see that alterna
tive courses and alternative
sections in multisection
courses are listed.
Students must also fill in
the bottom schedule part of
the worksheet, she said. For
scheduling purposes, she
added, the Registrar's Office
must assume when time on
the schedule is left blank, a
class could be scheduled at
that time if necessary.
If a student has followed
these instructions and a work
able schedule cannot be
made, the Registrar's Office
wilt call in the student for
consultation, she said.
