Much of our time is being
consumed explaining about the

missing a lot of people."
Clark said he feels that it is
"important, that we arc here, and
calling to the attention of the peo
ple of the community that the
theatres aren't giving equal serv
ice. Our witness by just being
here may be more important than
the count of the people who sign

Clark asserted that "the ma

was not necessarily a majority
of the people who patronized
the theatres yesterday.
"We welcome any others who
feel inclined to help," Clark said,
"if they check with someone at

Clark said the group needs more
students to hand the cards out.
"We're pretty much set up through
Thursday, but we need some stu-

By BLAKE GREEN
A spring afternoon brought much distraction clicking type
writers, bemuddled laughter, scuffing footsteps and the constant
rise and fall of passing voices.
And yet it vvas necessary to talk of death and despair and to
rehearse the distorted facial expressions and practice the neces
sary malice needed to give" the actors the right interpretation of
Albert Camus's tragic characters in "The Misunderstanding."
Under "not the most ideal conditions," the current Petite
Dramatique cast spends its afternoons in Roland Parker
Lounge 1 with a few chairs for scenery, and the front of the
room for a stage.
Director Tony Wolfe calls for an occasional break, but the
bulk of time is spent in a constant rehearsal of lines, with the
actors memorizing their lines in corners of the room when they're
not appearing on the "stage."
At night the scene shifts to 113 Murpny where, amid a mass
of crushed cigarette butts and desks for scenery this time, the
Problems arise constantly while the play is taking shape.
"Where should I stand?" "Am I blocking her?" "Do I kneel be
fore he says the line or after?" And all of them must be worked
out by the director and cast before the play opens in late April.
In Camus's tragedy the necessity of portraying th dismal
images of fate brings a variety of interpretations from the
There is the mother, played by Marion Fitz-simons, who shows
an attempt to repent, and even beg forgiveness for her former
deeds, but is driven on by her daughter, Martha, played by Betty
Green, and by the greater desire to escape from her present at
mosphere. The tragic outcome of his refusal, and the uncanny plans
for his death bring a climax to the play with the realization
of the deed and its outcome woven into the insistent idea that
no one can do anything for anyone, and that the pain of life
must be endured in solitude.

MILWAUKEE (AP) A massive outpouring of voters in a cru

share of the hopes of Kennedy's never give up rival. Sen. Hubert
