dida” long regarded as the finest
sentimental comedy of our time,
will be presented by an acting en-
semble froiji the nationally -known
Cleveland Play House on Saturday,
November 19, at Alma Thomas
Theatre .On Friday night, the Play-
ers are scheduled to present Ben
Abounding in rich and delightfu
lcomedy, “Candida” tells the story
of a lovely and intelligent woman
who must choose between her hus-
band and an eloquent young suitor.
The wisdom with which she makes
this choice marks her as one of
the most lovable heroines in drama-
Candida is the wife of Rev. Mo-
rel], a respectable, suburban En-
glish clergyman who adores h i s
wife and takes her love for grant-
ed. He is good looking, robust,

The play will be presented De-
cember 1-2 in conjunction with
parish dote on him. Into their lives
storms Eugene Marchbanks, a tor-
tured, young, dreamy-eyed poet
who is hopelessly in love with
Candida. Often regarded as Shaw’s
reincarnation of Shelley, the sensi-
tive suitor asks Candida to give
up her husband, whom he regards
as a moralist and a windbag. Nor
is Candida entirely immune to her
young admirer - for although she
is a devoted wife, she also is some-
thing of a well-bred coquette.
“Candida’’ was first produced in
the United States in 1903 and has
been revived repeatedly since that
time. The greatest of Shaw’s do-
mestic dramas, it is charming, wit-
ty, gracious and enduring. Among
the great ladies of the stage who
have played the title role are Kath-
erine Cornell, Peggy Wood, and
Dame Sybil Thorndike.
G. B. Shaw was born in Dublin
a century ago and was, according
to his definition, “the upstart son
of a downstart.” He approached
drama through his experience as
a crusading socialist, a boastful
atheist, a rampant vegetarian, a
forceful orator, and an unsuccess-
The performance here of “Can*
dida” is part of a 38-state tour
which was made possible by a Ford
Foundation grant in 1957. The pur-
pose of the grant was to provide
fine live theatre in smaller United
States communities. In preparation
for the tour, actors selected by a
panel of well-known theatre people
spent two years at the nationally-
known Cleveland Play House as
part of its professional company.
In its 45 years of continuous ope-
ration, the Play House has risen
to recognition as the outstanding
professional resident theatre in the
nation. In addition to operating
three theatres the Play House
conducts 1 an apprentice training
orogram with constant emphasis on
developing the highest standards of

Gerald Hill and Jessie Hibbits are
probably the toughest football play-
ers at Southwestern — they played
without the services^ of our -more
modern inventions, shoes!
The Pikes in that game defeated
KAs have been progressing, they
might be able to come up with a
0 to 0 tie. The KAs have yet to
produce their first points.
It is interesting to note that the
team that gets the greatest support
from the fans is not always the
winning team. Maybe the yelling
isn’t so important after all.
All students who are fortunate
enough not to have homework this
Friday night have the opportunity
of seeing one of the top high school
games in the state when the Taylor
Ducks invade Georgetown to do bat-
tle with the Eagles. It should be a
very spirited contest. ’
Ihe Pirate basketball team fame
up with another victory in their
scrimmage match with the inde-
pendent team from Austin. The Aus-
tin group was in very poor condi-
tion, however, and it looked as if
many of them did their practicing
at Schultz’s Beer Garden. Once
again the Pirates made many bad
parses and looked very poor of-
fensively. The team does seem to
hustle a bit more than last year's
team, though. If the Pirates don’t
make some marked improvement
they will be lucky if they can win
their first game against TLC on
December 7. TLC was the only team
that the Pirates were able to de-
feat twice in their regular season.
Right now it appears that TLC may
again be the only team to have
