Shore Three Former Pldymakers How Garolma M Good onwew York William T. Shore, Attorney of Charlotte (above) will be . the next President of the General Alumni As sociation of the University. Shore Elected Next President of General Alumni Association Strudwick, Hodgin, and Mintz All Have Roles in Plays Strudwick, Just One Year Out, Plays Leading Part; Koch Cites Interesting Pacts. The step from amateur to pro fessional in ' any field is ' always re garded' as a long one, hard to make, with a wide breach in between. It would seem that the Carolina Playmakers, widely known amateur Little Theatre group of the Univer sity, are fast narrowing that breach. Word just received here shows that three former Playmakers out of the University one, two and three years, respectively, are making good in lead ing theatrical companies as profes sional ' actors, and that one is play ing a lead ' role in New York. By name they are Shepherd Strud wick, : D. . H. Hodgin, and Claudius Minlz. Strudwick, only one year a- way from the , Playmakers, has the lead role in the Chinese play, "The Yellow Jacket," at Daly's 63rd Street Theatre in New York City; and Mintz and Hodgin, who were grad uated here in '26 and '27 respective ly, are both playing in Fritz Leiber's Shakespearean Repertory Company. 'Strudwick's rise in the professional theatre has been particularly phe nomenah Armed with an A.Bj de gree, three years of experience with the Playmakers, and plenty of cour age, he advanced on New York last fall to seek his fortune. r. Soon after his arrival he applied to the Coburn Players for a place as an actor and on the basis of his ex perience with the Playmakers he was given a minor part, that of assistant property man One day the actor who was play ing the lead received an offer , at a large advance in salary and left the company. Mr. Coburn, who had been observing the North Carolina youth attentively in rehearsals, came to him and said: "I'm going to give you the lead." '.::f - . Strudwick took the new part and made a big success of it, his experi ence with the Playmakers here in the Chinese play, "The Marvelous Ro mance of Wen Chun Chin" standing him in good stead. He is now play ing a prominent ' part in "Falstaff " which opened Christmas night. Strudwick is from Hillsboro and played leading roles with the Play makers for. three years, making all three tours of the group last year. " It is an interesting fact that Mintz, who is most interested - in Shakes pearean drama, made his first appear ance : with the Playmakers in a Shakespearean play. It was "Taming of the ' Shrew' which the Playmakers presented back in the fall of 1923 in their Forest Theatre here, and Mintz (Continued on page four) FRESHMEN WILL ELECT OFFICERS Nominations for Class Positions .
