V In Chapel Hill she met Mason, who was then writing on. a doc tor's thesis for the music depart ment, and they formed a team to write the musical. While he labored over the 6pening tunes, she found time to write a one-act play, "Close Quarters," which was produced by the Playmakers and later selected by NBC television for its "Chevrolet on Broadway" pro gram. . " . . " ! " An accomplished pianist and composer, Wilton Mason has fre quently appeared as guest soloist with the North Carolina State Symphony. Mason composed the music for Paul Green's symphonic drama, 'The Common Glory." "Writing show tunes is good relaxation," he says. "When Miss McDonald told me about her idea t for; the t musical, I . had long been fWorittrig on my thesis, which con sisted! pi I transcribing some lute suites!; of the 18th century for piano' 'and harpsichord. In ; the midst of that demanding task, reaction was setting in. It was then I wrote the show tune, "How Can I Get Slicker Quicker."'4 The completed thesis has al ready achieved recognition. Wan da Landowska, famed harpsi chordist, was very impressed with it, and is studying it for possible inclusions in her concerts. And the "Slicker Quicker" number has found its place in "Spring For Sure." John W. Parker, dramatic art department professor and busi ness manager of the Playmakers, is directing the new musical. He believes this produ'ctiofl will rank with the finest of the local group's many shows. , Amendments to the bill would dissolve the offices of the student president and legislature and set up a new "council-manager sys tem," with the elected council ex ercising the lawmaking powers. i The council-appointed manager ifHf I would be charged with "the sole duty of administering the edicts of the council and . . . not insti tute policy." The council-manager system would, the bill argues, provide a more adequate safeguard, than the present system, against the dicta torial use of power by the presi dent of the student body. It also" claims that "the opinion of the student, body will be more close ly adhered to if the bulk of pow er lies in the law-making body rather than in the executive." A second amendment to the non-partisan , bill would destroy the present "unfair and discrimi nating" districting for elections and set up five dorm and three town'districts with no distinction being made between men and women's districts. Cited in the original bill as reasons for the creation of the non-partisan student government here are 1) "Student government is presently being conducted in a vigorously partisan manner, (2) "This partisan manner keepai many able students out of student government, (3) "This partisan manner is not in the best interested of the welfare of the students here, (4) "The presence of political parties is largely responsible for the spoils "sy stem as it is currently practiced on this campus, (5) "The present system is the cause of the disrespect for Stu dent Government on this campus, (6) "And non-partisan govern ment would be more efficient." A cast of 19 singers and actors, ltvo settings, colorful mountain eer costumes, and 15 new songs are highlights-of the comedy.. "Spring For Sure" will be pre sented in Memorial hall on the nights of February t-3. Reserved seat tickets for the musical are on sale now at Swain hall and Led-better-Pickard's, Phi leaders expect the bill to elicit much heated debate and in vite all interested persons to at tend the meeting and participate. ! v
