Shaw Drama Will Be Last Play Of Year The Playmakers' . final major production for the current sea- son, ueorge iernara onaw t "Caesar and Cleopatra," will be played in the Forest Theater May 18, 19, and 20, the Playmakers announced yesterday. The work is a historical drama in a prologue and five acts. It tells of a visit to Egypt by Julius Caesar in 43 B.C., and of his pol itical and social relations with young Cleopatra. Cleopatra was just sixteen when Caesar visited her in the play. Realizing that sophistication comes only with age, Shaw has treated her as an innocent, phy- sicauy auracuve uuuuy-boxei j i i i i i There are indications, however. of the cruel, lusty woman she becomes. Of the Caesar in his play Shaw says in his prefaces, "I have pur posely avoided the usual anach- romism of going to Caesar's books and concluded that the style is the . man. Caesar's victories were only advertisements for an emin ence.''' He feels that the real Cae sar is to be found away from the battlefield. Tickets for the drama will go on sale next Tuesday at the Playmaker offices in Swain Hall. John Parker, business manager of the Playmakers, announced there will be no reserved seats sold for either of the three per formances.

Hearing Today Decides Fate Of Curve Inn State ABC Board To View Protests From Chapel Hill Students and townspeople may voice their opinions today in Ral eigh where a public hearing is scheduled before the Malt Bever ages Division of the State ABC Board on the granting of a beer permit to the Curve Inn. Ed Johnson, senior from Rocky Mount, leased the local drive-in recently and was granted a mu nicipal beer license last month. Since then almost 50 residents of the surrounding Strowd Hill sec tor sent a petition to the State Board opposing the granting of a State retail, beer permit to the establishment. - The student-frequented drive- in has been closed for the past two months since its former les sees, Bob and Joe Graham, were forced to close because they could not profitably operate in com pliance with a town ordinance prohibiting the drinking of beer outside the sandwich, drink, and beer shop. The reason for the order was the annexation of the entire 275 acre district last summer which was classified into the highest residential class. The restriction did not affect the contnued oper ating of existent businesses in the area. DrNS. A. Nathan, owner of the establishment, took out a build ing permit authorizing alterations estimated at $2,144 a short time ago. -" - '- -; - - UNC Student Is Awarded Honor Prize Special to The Daily Tar Heel DURHAM, May 3 Judson Hardy, Jr., sophomore at Card lina, was awarded the John Bewley Derieux Memorial Award here tonight during the 48th An nual Meeting of the N.
