Smokie Mountains, Orange
Jeans Depicts Comedy Here
Brilliant settings, richly colored
costumes, and dazzling lights are
the order of the day, when the
Carolina Playmakers give three
evening presentations of the new
musical comedy hit, "Spring For
Sure," February 1-3 at 8:30 p.m.,
in Memorial Hall.
The settings are designed and
executed by Lynn Gault, per
manent technical director of the
Playmakers, who has been wide
ly acknowledged one of the fore
most scenic artists in American
university theatre. In designing
for this production, he was facd
vith the double problem of match
ing scenic effects with the buo
yant liveliness of the script and
music, and making them suf
ficiently flexible to meet the de

Partisan UNC Government
Fa vo r e d B y P h i As s e m b I y
The Phi decided not to abolish
campus political parties this week.
By an overwhelming 21-2 vote
with several abstentions, the de
baters rejected a bill to set up a
non-partisan form of student gov
ernment and destroy the political
party system here.
Chief opponents of the bill were
Representatives Robert Pace,
David Kerley, Sid Schuf ord, and
Wood Smethurst. Their arguments
were based upon the belief that
while the present status of stu
dent government may not be sat
isfactory, the bill was an imprac
tible answer, and that, though
the group must deal with on the
following tours.
A great perfectionist, Mr. Gault
has spared no labor or ingenuity
in recreating for the stage the
vivid beauty of Smoky Mountain
vistas. There are the hill cabins,
the rocky bluffs, the vast ex
panse of . blue sky, and the
flowering Dogwood trees.
Irene Smart, another mem
ber of the Playmakers staff and
official costumer for all their
productions, has assembled an
array of costumes, and fitted
them carefully to the performers.
The design of these clothes is
modeled in detail on the dress
of the Tennessee mountaineers,
although the colors are startling
slashes of orange, blue, and green.
"It is not realistic," remarks
Mrs. Smart, "to see men walking
about in orange or green jeans,
but in musical comedy, the im
pression of color and spirit is
more important than realism."'
Special lighting effects for this
production are planned and super
vised by Anne Edwards, a grad
uate student from New Bern.
She demonstrates, in her present
position of master electrician, that
an appealing young actress, can
also be a competent technician.
Her lighting arrangement, which
seeks to duplicate the brilliant
hues seen in a mountain sky, is
proving successful.
Given the skill and determina
tion of such artists as Lynn Gault,
Irene Smart and Anne Edwards,

Come Saturday night, the In
dependent Coed Board will get its
leap year social activities off to

first in what is hoped will be a
weekly series of dances, with the

soring them. j

the Coed Board said that an area;
would be closed off and darkened
in the rear of the Pine Room, and j

To allow the student offender's

"If military status is to be con

student's home town, must also

Rules
a student who is suspended, will
necessarily be called into military
service during the period of sus
pension since the exact time of his
"call" is not known," they said.
Botto explained that the policy
statement was issued because sev
eral students in recent cases had
argued that suspension from the
University actually amounted to
two years of military service,
since they expected to be drafted
if they left school.
"Military service represents an
obligation of citizenship. The time
of fullfillment of this obligation
can not be known definitely by
the student concerned or the
Council considering the student's
situation," the chairmen said yes
terday. "The Council deals with a stu
dent violator on the point of his
adherence to the laws and codes
of our student community, and
sentences are imposed in con
sideration of this element solely.
These sentences are based on the
traditions and precedents of the
past and cannot be altered by the
national or international situa
tion, or the Selective Service Sys
tem," they continued.
"A student's military status
will not be considered by the
Men's Council in determining his
proper disposition. Neither will
it be considered by. the Student
Council as a valid ground for ap
peal," they concluded.
The Student Council, serves as
an appelate court in cases of Hon
or and Campus Code violations,
for winch the Men's Council is tha
court or original jurisdiction.) r
