Getting Two New
The campus is getting the bene
fit of a physical - improvement !
The Forest Theater has re
ceived major repairs to the stag
area, and a rock wall has been
built across the front entrance
next to the street. Director of
Operations J. S. Bennett said
yesterday a road leading to the
rear of the stage is being con
structed to permit trucks to carry
sets directly to the theater.
Bennett said groups perform-
i ing in the theater in the future
would enjoy the use of a new
pair of dressing rooms. Previously
the actors were forced; to use
tents for their costume changes.
The sidewalks in the New East,
Smith, Hill Hall area are being
bricked to accomodate the inr
creasingly heavy traffic there,
Bennett said. "We are trying to
install permanent walks in each
area as the volume of traffic
there warrants the expense," he

put in Saunders, Murphey, Stacy
