said. "And in many ways Dr. Zambus and
Dr. Luke were alike."
President Elwin Skiles and Dr. Rupert
Richardson also took part in the funeral
service. Dr. Skiles led the opening prayer
and Dr. Richardson read the obituary
with comments about Dr. Zambus's
service to Hardin-Simmons.
"His education was not complete" Dr.

VET presents 'Earnest9
Wilde's play begins drama season
195 to attend
Oscar Wilde's comedy THE IM-
PORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST kicks
off Van Ellis Theatre's 1976-77 season
tonight at 8 on the Hardin-Simmons
campus. The play will be presented at 2
and 8 p.m. tomorrow and at 8 p.ni. Monday
and Tuesday Oct. 11 and 12.
The three primary characters ir:
"Earnest" are Lady Bracknell
Algernon Moncrieff and Jack Worthing.
Among Lady Bracknell's many notable
quotes in the play is "To be born or at any
rate bred in a hand-bag whether it had
handles or not seems to me to display a
contempt for the ordinary decencies of
family life that remind one of the worst
excesses of the French- Revolution."
Then there is Algernon who wishes to be
rechristened Earnest and Jack who is
Earnest-in-twwn but Jack-in-the-country
and who also wants to be christened
Earnest if you can understand that.
This "trivial comedy for serious people"
has been a vehicle for famous performers
such as John Gielgud Edith Evans
Estelle Winwood Margaret Rutherford
and Margaret Hamilton. In 1959 a musical
version of the show EARNEST IN LOVE
opened at the Gramercy Arts Theater and
became an immediate off-Broadway hit.
The play's cast includes Chris Harper as
Jack Worthing Nolan Murdock as
Algernon Moncrieff Jennifer Cochran as
Lady Bracknell Jana Hurst as Gwendolyn
Fairfax Terri Loter as Cecily Cardew
Tim Boss as Rev. Chasuble Kathy Ponder
as Miss Prism John Landon as Lane and
Nanette Grainger as Merriman.
