Barnes, dean of administration, • announced last week. If it arrives in time, dedication will take place on Memorial day at the same time of the all-college assembly. It is a 97 by 51 inch placard, with four panels for the insertion of a thousand names. 783 names in alphabetical order are ready to be placed on the roll upon arrival. The names of those men killed in service will be in gold, and the rest in white upon a black background. This honor roll will be hung in front of the Dean of Administration's office. By Anne Gidilewich, Despite seemingly insurmountable difficulties of much publicity, complicated staging and a slow-moving plot, the Masquers' presentation of "The Song of Bernadeitte" retains a freshness and a definite appeal. The play, adopted from Franz Werfel's novel by Jean and Walter Kerr, depends upon an. atmosphere of mysticism rather than upon a strong plot. The mysticism is never lost, but is made doubly effective through the humanness of the characters. Bernadette Soubirous, a peasant girl of Lourdes, has a vision of Our Lady of the Grotto. Ruth Horn creates a Bernadette with sutolety and warmth and understanding. One never forgets that she is a real person, yet a spiritual aura clings to her throughout the play. When the vision comes to Bernadette, the whole village is upset and disbelieving. They are convinced by the miracle of the spring as the play continues. Essentially, that is the story, which is bolstered by rich characterization. Marge Wise turns in a good job as the simple, hardworking mother who wants only a normal life for her daughter. Ed Grant as Dean Peyramale, guards well his dignity as the principal' cleric of the village who scoffs at first and later comes to Bernadette's defense. Jack Iskin lives Louis^ Bouriette, the half-blind stonemason. There are many others whose performances deserve mention. The most striking scene is Bernadette's vision which comes when all the townspeople stand watching her in awe. Her ' rapt expression and extremely good pantomine are not to be forgotten. Here the special musical effects used reach perfect tiihing in mood and tone, See—MASQUERS—Page 4 College Skating Party Last Friday Night Andrew Galloway, Warrensburg, Missouri, V-12, won the door prize at the first all-college skating party of the semester Friday night, April 6, at the DMJ3, Gardens, Prizes for the best couple and single skaters went to Donna Inger- soll, Lake City freshman; Jerry Foy, Ellsworth, Wisconsin, V-12; and Mary Currie, Fenton sophomore, respectively.

Her topic will be the art of getting material published. Members of the English 207 and 208. are invited to attend this meeting. Mr. and Mrs. Fred Bush will entertain members of Sigma Tau Delta Sunday, April 15, at 7:15. Miss Rachel Loughridge will speak on "Translation of Spanish Poetry." New Navy -members will be initiated at this meeting. Letter Openers New Additions to Collection President Charles L. Anspach recently received two new letter openers to add to his large collection. A beautiful hand-made opener was sent him by Ensign Fred Lee as a souvenir of the U.SB, Oklahoma which was sunk by the Japs at Pearl Harbor. Ensign Lee was able to obtain a piece of teak wood from which the deck of the ship was made, and from this he carved the letter opener by hand. The other opener was sent by Lt. J. D. Marcus, former instructor in the commerce department. The story behind this is not known, but the blade "appears to have been tak- en from a Japanese dagger. The case is hand hewn from natural white wood and is intricately designed by strands of hemp wound around the outside. This was probably made by some native. Dr. Anspach has been collecting these letter openers for a number of years and has a wide variety of all sizes and shapes. Since the war, his collection has grown rapidly as many of the fellows send them back to him from all over the world.
