THE DALLY. TAR HEEL
Tuesday, May 22, 1951
According to a reliable source, there is now in President
. f.wJ r .. , i i i i ; l c
tfXe area between Old East and Old West. Complete with box-"
V woods and flowering shrubs, the plan would make the present
i sand waste into a spot of beauty equalling or bettering that
4 an front of the Morehead Planetarium.
';Such plans represent ah; admirable and progressive move
Von the part of the administration. The Old Well has long
i 'deserved better dress than the uneven and scattering sand, .
I jas have Old East, Old West, and South Building.
5' -However, there is another factor which should be con
"! isidered in any plans for beautification of that area. Responsi
; ; ble . authorities should now seriously look into the matter of
closing off the street in front of South, and removing the
pavement from the entrance end of the Playmakers Theater
. o the far end of Gerrard Hall.
This would lend the larger area to a much more extensive
'and Aiseful program of beautification, and at the same time
twodld.solve two problems which have been long pressing.
, , Pedestrian traffic now is so heavy in the area that two offi
"cerv.must be stationed, in front of the YMCA building to
" handle it. Such a move would also solve trie problem of auto-
jnobile- traffic, which would no longer-be through traffic.
. rThe" problems arising might be too great; to justify such
'a inove, biit it would be well worth consideration from those
' 'lib'jdesire to make this campus a beautiful one.
V tflRis "'solution ; to ' ths pedistrain problem would simply lead the
;!. : ofeiittph.''6f foot?' traffic' localized in the same area, and . make it
stlect to control there. It would ali-jo solve the autompbile . traffic
, problem by discouraging traffic,, and diverting it behind the build-
iiih&i to the parking areas.
Reaction To Coeds
by Fred Thompson
! The Carolina coed has been,
! is and perhaps always shall be
! a . controversial topic. As much
' time and talk has been given
already to citing her shortcom
ings,, this column shall be con
li termed with the other side.'
i -yThe number of coe'ds and in
adequate telephone connections
! are two fairly objective factons
; which contribute to hard feel
. ings. However, we. must re
J 'iTicmber that the coed has little
, ;if any control over these mat -;
! The former gives rise to
j "ratio-rationalization" by the
men. Is not the-coed available
i until dated? And when she has
! plans, should she drop to her
I-knees and tell the "date-hunter"
'j&trAter profound regret? Ob
f viously not. A gracious response
' Is all that should be expected,
j The latter situation still ex
I ists in spite of the newly in
J stalled phones. My speculation
I :is that three phones per floor
made a good name for herself.
Academically, she surpasses
those who belittle her.
It seems that she is gifted in
being able to work ' while she
works and likewise for play.
Perhaps, she burns the midnight
oil as much or more than we
Although her play may sometimes-
be a little' reserved,1 the .
coed doesn't miss a trick. She,'
has a happy smile for everyone.
Both men and women are
needed for the give-and-take
which accords meaning and ,
pleasure to living. Both con

considered, coeds are high cal

Coeds: If you desire to com
pete with the import or home
town, girl, you must treat the
man as she does ike a baby;
Carolina men go for girls who
pacify. Five out of six want a
gal just like the one who mar

William Peterson's review of
Caesar and Cleopatra in last
Sunday's DTH was amazingly
amateurish. After reading it I
was forced to ask, "What in the
world is he talking about?" In
the first paragraph Mr. Peterson
mentions the play and says "it
is well adapted to its handsome
impressive setting." I, for one,
have not the slightest idea what
that is supposed to mean. My
first impression was that the re
viewer was complimenting the
director for the way he had con
formed the play to the limita
tions of the-Forest Theatre. That
idea was shattered when Mr.
Peterson challenged the idea
that the play should be perform
ed outdoors as a "pageant" (Oh,
that word!). Setting. himself up
as judge on . this matter, Mr.
Peterson makes the astounding
statement that in order to ans
wer jthe question "one must
, know' what the play is about."
The deep-seated wisdom of this
remark cannot be denied, but it
leads me to wonder . why Mr.
Peterson -drags in a Shavian
comment on the nature of Pro
gress. What does this statement
of social stagnation have to do
with the Tightness of the Play
makers' choice of an outdoor
For two more columns the ar
ticle flounders in Shavian pref
atory remarks, the nature of
Shavian comedy and one or two
"praise-phrases" for the leads
and a character analysis of Cleo
patra. Finally, after more diver
gent comments, about British
,'mdrals and-Roman justice, Mr.
Peterson comes back to his orig
inal question by. saying "these
somewhat disparate themes
make the piece suitable for an
elaborate production ..." What
non sense! It would be interest
ing to hear Mr. Peterson's re
marks about an outdoor produc
tion of Oedipus Rex with it unity
of action singleness of theme.
I do not want to seem facetious
or picayunish in attacking Mr.
Peterson's review; I only want
to point out that it is meaning
less. If he really wanted to write
a good review, Mr. Peterson
would have familiarized him
self with the Playmakers' policy
of spending months in the selec
tion of each outdoor production
and he would never have asked
the question, "Should Caesar and
Cleopatra be produced in 'the
Forest Theatre?" but given such
a play to produce there, he
would have asked "How well
was it done?" This is what fu
ture audiences want to know
before they spend their dollar
and about which the first-nighters
want to confer. Certainly it
is what the fifty-odd cast and
crew members want to know.
Each one of them continually
asks, "How well did I do my
job? How can I improve?" They
care little about Major Barbara
and Henry V, But since actors
cannot always see themselves as
others do, they want to know
how they appear. They are right
fully disgusted when they read
that they are ""moral" or "force
ful" or "competent." These
words are meaningless. If the
actors were bad, they deserve
to know why to be told in con
crete terms how they can im
prove. Actors are not weaklings
they can take all the criticism
a reviewer can dish out and
thank him for it as long as they
can respect his theatrical judge
ment. When they read reviews
that search no more deeply into
the problems of play-making
than this one, they are revolted.
When they realize how much of
their success depends upon the
critic's pen, they are terrified.
Critics will not tolerate incom
. petency in actors there is no
reason why actors should toler
ate it in critics.
