Belh Frederick Announces Cast To Play
Leading Roles in Humorous Production
Joseph Kesselring's hilarious comedy, "Arsenic and Old Lace,"
will be presented by the Guilford College Dramatic Council in
Memorial Ilall on the evening of May 16. Beth Frederick, presi
dent of the council, will co-direct with Jerry Allen.
The two main roles of the "chari
table" old maids, who sprinkle Ar
senic and Victorian humor in equal
amounts, will he portrayed by Elean
or Corneilson and Marjorie Ben
bow. Their naive and amusingly
diabolical schemes drive their
nephew, Mortimer Brewster, into a
state of nervous prostration. Bill
McCracken, a newcomer to the Guil
ford stage, plays this role and will
serve as the love interest of Elaine
Harper, a cute Brooklyn bombshell
portrayed by Charlotte Flanders.
The immortal charges of Teddy
Brewster (alias Teddy Roosevelt)
fall into the bands of the rotund
and robust Jerry Ducker. His crazy
safaris into Panama and up San
Juan Hill upset the plans of the
sadistic Jonathan a Karloff-like
role that Jack White will re-enact.
Jonathan's partner in crime, and
surgeon general of the underworld,
Dr. Einstein, a role that Peter
Lorre made famous, will be acted
by Alfred Cappiello.
While the sisters are dispensing
joy and Arsenic, two Brooklyn flat
foots meander around, happy in
their ignorance. These two cops
are played by Mo Campbell and
Hank Harvey. Their stupid activi
ties anger the detective of their pre
cinct, a detective of the Lloyd Nolan
type. Bill Kerr will portray this
part. The other minor roles are
taken by Bill Danenbnrg, Howard
Coble, Don Troxler and Jerry Allen.
This play was chosen in the hope
of stirring up interest in Guilford
dramatics. The members of the
Dramatic council admit quite frank
ly that some of the more recent,
plays haven't l>een up to the stand
ards of previous Guilford presenta
tions, and they felt that in putting
on a play that appeared before
'standing rt>om only' audiences,
they'll be able to get dramatics
back on its feet.
The cast and directors are work
ing under pressure, as they have only
one month in which to produce a
play that, requires months of prac
tice. The two main roles alone, have
almost ninety pages of lines to
master! Alan Hamilton stage mana

End in Gymnasium
By CARIA'LE McKAUGHAN
The construction of the new
night, club, the first of its kind

completion for its opening to
morrow night. Herf Schoellkopf,
the manager of the Klub Kam
pus Kilties, announces that he
has engaged the famous and
popular night, club entertainer

ceremonies for the premiere.
Dancing and dining will be on
tap, with music being furnished

form in this part of the country,
excellent service is promised by the
manager who has an especially well
trained stafT of waiters and cigar
ette girls, to serve the patrons with
a wide choice of the best in food,
drink and niceitles. The menu has
a rather long list of delicate dishes
for your appetite and the drinks are
said to be the finest anywhere.
The furnishings of the Klub Kam
pus are especially to be commended
as the mural to the viewed are of
(tie Imported variety, painted especi
ally for the decoration of this ex
quisit outlay. The bar, a circular
affair ,was designed by Kalph Bil
lingsl.v, the proprietor of the fam
ous Stork Club in New York City.
The bandstand was originally plan
ned to be of the revolving type but
due to the request for additional
table space, it was changed to the
more conventional "box" type.
Assisting the master-of-ceremonies
and the gay chorus will be an especi
ally picked quartet who will give
renditions that will be a treasure
in your chest of memories for years
The Klub Kampus Kuties will
present one of the most fashion

Schedule of Social
The new Social Committee con
sisting of Ed Alexander, A 1 Ama
truda, Frisco Bray, Hank Harvey,
Hoyt Hinshaw, Wes Inman, Bill
Stanley, and Jack White, under the
direction of Betty Nunn, has made
plans for better and more frequent
entertainment on campus.
They got off to a good start on
Saturday night. April 12, when the
motion picture "Beyond Tomorrow"
was shown in Memorial Hall. On
Saturday, April 111, the committee
sponsored a hayride. Three wagons
took the group of more than 30 to
a farm not far from Guilford. The
amount of weenies consumed bears
mute witness to the hearty appetite
of the crowd.
The Social Committee has a wide
variety of activities planned for
every Saturday night until examina
tion start. All of these however will
not be sponsored solely by them as
several other campus organizations
have programs scheduled. The Mono
gram Club's "Night Club" and the
May Day Dance arranged by the
Women's Athletic Association are
two outstanding examples of Guil
ford's revised social life.
The blank spots in the school
calendar have all lx>en provided for
and there is to be no lack of campus
entertainment for the rest of the
academic year. The new Social Com
mittee is looking ahead and Chair
man Betty Nunn will welcome any
suggestions for next. year.
