'Good Lady of Setzuan
By Betty Johnson
A neat problem in character dif
ferentiation was well on the way
to solution when Kai Jurgensen, di
rector of the forthcoming Carolina
Playmakers' production, "The Good
Woman of Setzuan," decided to use
half-masks for the 24 characters
played by his cast of 12.
The unusual production will be
presented in the Playmakers Thea
ter Thursday through Sunday.
Originally this modern German
expressionist drama included some
30 citizens of the Chinese village
of Setzuan, in addition to the good
woman and her airline pilot lover.
Cut to its present 24, the play was
still considerably unwieldy for the
limitations of the Playmakers'
" Through the use of concert stag
ing and masks, Jurgensen has sur
mounted this difficulty adroitly and
in keeping with the modernist tone
of the play.

here and former president of the student body,
discovered its existence in the summer of 1948. He
was preparing to enter the University at that time,

is the diary's publication in the February and

! Tillman Choice
To Edit Yack;
Race Is Ruqqed
By Louis Kraar
The University Party nominated
Bob Gorham their presidential can
didate last night by acclamation.
Rolfe Neill won the nomination
for Daily Tar Heel editor also by
acclamation. Neill, present manag
ing editor of the newspaper, said
he would try for a double endorse
ment. The party O.K. for Gorham took
less than a minute. This nomina
tion followed an hour's battle to
pick one of three candidates for
editor of the Yackety Yack. Rollie
Tillman won the nomination over
Bob Colbert and Lib Moore.
Gorham outlined what he called
"two principles for this campaign."
They were "common sense" and
The UP nominee is from Rocky
Mount and is best known for his
work as chairman of the orienta
tion program. Gorham is in the
Phi Assembly, a former legislator,
and a member of Delta Kappa Ep
silon fraternity. His nomination
was not much of a surprise since
he has been mentioned for the post
for several months.
Neill, Daily Tar Heel candidate,
was news editor in his freshman
year. He enrolled from Columbus,
Ga. but now lives in Chapel Hill.
He became managing editor during
his sophomore year and later ser
ved as executive editor. He re-assumed
the managing editor's job
last spring with the election of
Barry . Farber. He is a political
science and history major and a
member of Phi Delta Theta fra
ternity. Gorham declared after his nom
ination "we, the University Party,
have the opportunity to continue
raise student government to a new
a great service. We can further
a level of dignity and respect, in
which each student feels that he
is a part. I firmly believe that the
major factor in student apathy so
prevalent here is the lack of re
spect that the average student has
for student government.
"This lack of respect comes from
the constant bickering, the politi
cal maneuvering by the campus
politicians in an attempt to increase "
party fortunes. Politics has a place
on the campus, but this place must
not be over emphasized."
Contrasting the quick selection
of president and Daily Tar Heel
editor, nominations for editor of
the Yackety Yack brought much
debate. Tillman, winner of the nom
ination, was mentioned early this
week as a "dark horse" candidate.
He is not a staff member of this
year's yearbook but is business
manager of Tarnation.
The top issue in the Yackety
Yack editor selection was that of
rebates the money refunded to
the staff, by printers in return for
meeting deadlines. In the past,
staffers have received this money.
But recently there has been some
question as to whether this prac
tice should continue.
Colbert and Miss Moore are Yack
staffers. Both are in favor of staff
ers getting the rebates. Tillman
did not favor this.
Upon defeat, Colbert said, "I
am dropping out of the race . . .
because it is my conviction that
politics have no place in the Yack
ety Yack. I am now going to do
all I can to see that the Yack is
taken out of politics."
The party will nominate for vice
president, secretary-treasurer and
class officers next week.
