SIX SHOWS IN THE MILL:
Work And Worl
By BILLY ARTHUR
Morehead Planetarium techni
cians plus the boss, advisors, sec
retary and the janitors were about
ready to go berserk.
After all, there is but one Plane
tarium instrument, only so many
hours in the day, and only so little
space behind the huge steel dome.
And the Planetarium has six shows
in the mill, four running and two
Therefore, it was no wonder when
a question or suggestion was posed,
it was met with the question,
"Which show you referring to?"
The question, suggestion or
critique could have applied to the
current public and special offer
ings, "Steering By the Stars" and
"Beyond the Solar System" respec
tively. Or, to a single-shot academie
presentation, "Th-e Astronomy of
America," or to "Easter, the Awak
ening," the big spectacular spirit
ual production which was left in-t
tact after its closing for a special
one-time showing to the Atlantic
Coast Debate Council. ,
Too, the question, suggestion or
critique could have been directed
towards two new shows, which
open May 23 and which are now in
the planning stage thaf requires
consultations" of the staff, prepara
tions of the script, devision special
effects and manual labor.
Into the working of all six pro
ductions go the combined mental
movements and manuai labor of
Manager Anthony F. Jenzano, Dr.
M. S. Davis, a member of the UNC
astronomy department and advisor
to the Planetarium, and John T.
Brittain, James Gates and R. L.
McGhee, members of the technical
' Every Planetarium presentation
requires a different setting of the
great Zeiss instrument, plus scores
of hidden projectors around the
simulated horizon. And behind the
dome are huge stage settings.
FRIDAY, APRIL 28
Let's single out Friday, April 28,
when four entirely different shows
were presented in the chamber.
At 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. school chil
dren witnessed "Beyond the Solar
System." For it, the 15-foot metal
monster and a group of projectors
were employed to present both
little and well known and popular
stellar objects and galakies.
At 4:15 p.m. "Easter, The Awak
ening" was offered with an en
tirely different on the Planetar
ium instrument and a diverse
group of projectors as well as a
distinctly different script for the
technicians who operate the sound
and lighting effects.
At 5:30 p.m the Zeiss projector
was set again, this time turned
back 570 years to the mediaeval
period of Chaucer, and checked.
'tXr ?A -
Still another set of sound and
lighting cues was placed before
the teqhnicians for their execu
tion without flaw.
At 8:30 p. .m"Steering By the
Stars" required a fourth perfect
setting of the instrument and an
other batch of cues for the tech
nicians. Four separate narrators had
memorized the scripts and were
working the Planetarium controls
in the dark while speaking from
Between shows Manager Jen
zano and the technicians confer
red and determined which of the
Easter stages and projectors
should come down first for speedy
replacement fdr the forthcoming
and also different production
opening May 23.
Three other members of the
staff were affected, too. One was
Mrs. Nancy Holder, who must
type the script as well as han-
die the Planetarium reservations.
Whenever someone appeared at
the ticket window, she had to re
member to ask, "Which program
do you want to see?"
Others were Hubert Robinson
and George Davis, the custodians.
They hardly had room and time
between shows and' rehearsals for
April 28 was only one day, you
rightly say. But remember, the
Planetarium, except for three
months in the summer, always has
four shows "on the - road" two
playing and two in" the works.
The staff is not yet ready for a
psychiatrist unless one might be
able to determine how it manages
to go in four directions at once.
And for how long. -

There is still time for inter
ested groups to enter the an
nual University Club Spring
Carnival, according to Vice-President
The carnival will be held next
Friday. Present plans, said Clapp,
include "everything from a night
club to sponge-throwing contests
to pitching pennies and other
cunningly - contrived games cal
culated to give the students a
run. for their prize money."
No duplication of exhibits will
be allowed, said Clapp, but "there
is plenty of room for some ori
ginal concessions that should turn
out to be real crowd-pleasers." ;
Clapp said any fraternity, soro
rity or dormitory may enter the
carnival for a fee of $4. All pro
fits, he said, will be kept by or
ganizations. Two . organizations
may co-sponsor a booth, he said.
Due to a state attorney gen
eral ruling against gambling,
only games of skill will be "al
lowed and encouraged," accord
ing to Clapp. Beer, he said, can
be given away only by certificate.
