stage. By Wednesday night, though,
all the sets were in use, most mem
bers of the cast were in full cos
tume, some were in make-up. and
the stage came alive with color

everywhere and work -lights cov
ered with tin-foil appeared back
The light crew was going through
its handle-pulling paces with pre
cision. Varying color combinations
from the lights modified the al
ready vivid costumes and sets.
Probably the most difficult part
of the back-stage work will be the
stage crew's job of changing the
sets in a black-out so. complete that
even the work-lights are out.
A new sound was added to the

no official name. It's a group of 20

next night, however, the
orchestra wasn't there---just a pi

soloists were saving their" voices
The Late Watcher was disgrunt

SMALL'S LARGE VOICE
There was one voice in the cast;
however, that both the orchestra
and the chorus together could not
overpower. Paradoxically, the name
of the voice's owner is Dave Small.
. Small is a freshman who in IS
years has developed a voice with
all the power and range necessary
to sing Old Man River.
Small is a native of Morehead
City, where he sang for the Beau
fort Choral Club, his high school
Glee Club and a chorus choir. He
calls Show Boat his "first real
venture in show business."
At present, Small is undecided
betwen research physical chem
istry and show business as a future
career, but he says he ought to
know by next year.
ACCENT ON ACTING
With the singing and music down
pat, the accent was placed on act
ing. The play was run through
with the directors taking notes.
Then came the autopsy. With
attention to the constant minutiae,
first one director and then another
made comments to the cast. These
were often humorous.
At one point, Suzanne Elliot, who
plays Julie, was having a little

Brumfield Calls Newspaper
yThe Second Daily Worker'
By NEIL BASS
The student Legislature, in a sparsely populated scvion
last night, amid statements o "second Daily Worker" by Lew
is Brumfield (SP), and comments by other Legislators voted
to set up a six man committee to "investigate the quality and
circuation problems of The Daily Tar Heel.'
The meeting, attended by 29 of the total J7 legislators,
was proceeding without event until
Charles Hyatt (SP) assumed the
rostrum and exclaimed that "qua!
ity" was lacking on The Daily Tar
Heel, and that "something ought
to be done about it or the' paper
done away with."
Larry McliUroy (SP) added his
opinion to the rein by saying
'something should be done to bring
the Tar Heel down from the olym
pian clouds of pseudo-intellectual-ism
to which Mr. Kuralt has led
it to." McElroy continued his blast
by saying, "Kuralt's references to
the business school, which is one
of the finest in . the South," are
Frank Warren (SP) threw his
words into the lot by calling
Charles Kuralt, editor, and Fred
Powledge .managing editor, "lazy"
and "not doing a good job." War
ren, speaker of the Philanthropic
Assembly, offered a solution to
what he called a drastic "need of
help and a "poor coverage" of stu
dent activities by suggesting that
the Tar Heel "put an advertise
ment on the front page saying that
'we need staff.' "
When Lewis Brumfield (SP) got
a chance to assume the rostrum,
he... giving the . niost extreme atti-
tude of the night, said, "Kuralt
should not impose his liberal be
liefs on the student?. The paper
should be more personal and get
down to the students." Ending his
speech, during which he called the
Tar Heel a "second Daily Worker,"
he defined it as a "professional
piece of journalism."
Norwood Bryan (SP) offered a
solution to the "problem" with the
remark that "if the salaries of the
staff were cut and people worked
for the love of the paper," there
might be an improvement.
Jim Turner, chairman of the
Publications Board commented on
the legislators action with "I'm
glad the Legislature has recognized
these things that we have been
working on all year." Tom Lam
beth, also a member of the Board
said that he "knew of no such ac
tion." Jack Stevens, floor leader of the
University Party, said after the
meeting that WI am heartily op
posed to the action- and feel that
the Legislature has acted hastily."
The student Constitution of the
University states that "Neither the
Publications Board nor the stu
dent Legislature shall exercise any
control over the editor and chiefs
of the various publications."
