The Playmakers Theatre curtain
will rise Wednesday night at 7:3Q on
the 105th bill of experimental produc
tions of new plays presented by the
Carolina Playmakers. More than 300
plays written by students have been
produced by the Playmakers during
its course of organization, which is an
accomplishment unique among other
dramatic groups. .' .
The primary object in .he founding
of the Carolina Playmakers by Dr.
Frederick'H. Koch in 191 was to fos
ter play writing talent, and the3 plan
for experimental bills was begun at
that tiine. This is now considered Jhe
most important work done by the
group because it - serves as a labora
tory in which the student-writer may
try put his theories in actual produc
tion. Five bills, each composed of three
original one-act plays and one three
act play, are presented every year.
These experimental? are written, di
rected and produced entirely by stu
dents, and presented to a local audi
ence at no admission charge. After
each play, a discussion of its merits
and faults is carried on between the
audience and the author. This affords
the author an opportunity to obtain
the reactions of the audience to his
play and also gives the audience a
chance to air its opinions.
The three budding playwrights
whpse works will be presented tomor
row night offered the following com
ments in reference to their plays:
Phyllis Sullivan, author of "Five
Notes in a Bar" "I have tried to pre
sent some lovable, laughable charac
ters in a comedy full of movement and
light. The only purpose of the play,
other than sheer entertainment, is to
emphasize the joy of living and the
eternal youthfulness of the spirit."

Scott To Perform
At Memorial Hall
On Monday Night
The Student Entertainment Com
mittee, headed by J. Penrose Har
land, will present Henry Scott, emin
ent humorist, at 8:30 p.m. Monday,
October 15th at Memorial JIall. Block
tickets to all concerts in the series
presented by the- Student Entertain
ment Committee must be purchased by
all civilian students at registration.
Concert satire is based on the pre
mise that humor has a place in the
concert hall just as much as on the
stage, in literature and in the plastic
arts. Accordingly, in a series of num
bers "A Great Concert Pianist,"
"Chopin in the Citrus Belt," "Little
Boy Genuis Grows Up," "Rhythm at
Any Cost" and "Mittens on the Keys,"
Scott will satirize some of the follies
and amiable weaknesses of the music
His program will also include a
section devoted to serious classics and
another section devoted to popular
styles in modern piano playing1, on
which subject he is considered an au
thority. This will include swing im
pressions of leading modern popular
piano styles in concert impressions of
Eddy Duchjn and others.
"Rhythm at Any Cost'.' and "Mittens
on the Keys" will make us. of Scott's
peculiar trade mark, the mitten. Sev
eral years ago he invented for his pi
ano students a finger strengthening
device known as the technical mitten
which is widely used by musicians. In
"Rhythm at Any Cost," Scott begins a
number bare-handed, and, without in
terrupting hjs playing, draws on first
pne mitten, and then the other before
the final bars.
The classical section of Scott'? pro
gram will include Scarlatti, Chopin,
Scott attended Syracuse University
College of Fine Arts, where he was
much n demand as an entertainer. He
has progressed steadily as an artist
aijd humorist since that date, culmin
ating in a successful concert at Town
Hall, New York City, this past season.
Gee Clubs Perform
For Public Friday
The Men's and Women's Glee Clubs
will combine forces for ' their first
public appearance, under the direction
of Professor PauJ Ypung, at Found
ers' Day services Friday.
The vocal groups , will sing "How
Lovely Is Thy Dwelling Place" from
Brahm's "Requiem." The Men's Glee
Club , will also present Jhe old Latin
hymn "Integer Vitae," which has
been part of the Founders' Day pro
gram for many years.
