A. Milne ls always a treat and, when well pro-| duced, the fun Is at least doubled. Last night’s performance of “The Dover Road,” which opened a three-day run ln Touchstone Theatre, was a corking good show. Despite a marked tendency to lag, particularly during the first half of the evening, the performers took hold and managed to bring the play to a smashingly funny climax. CAST IS CAPABLE For a college play, “The Dover Road1’ has an exceptionally capable cast. As Mr. Latimer, Henry Cross i* a natural. Tongue in cheek, he strolls his quiet way through the show, offering excellent contrast to the other more emotional characters. Although hls timing is excellent, Mr. Cross would do well to Uven the tempo of his speech. Bess Taffel endows the part of Anne with real charm, sincerity, and ease. The smoothness of her performance combined with a clear and beautiful diction giveo her an outstanding stage presence. As played by Fred Niemoeller, the character of Leonard might have stepped from a page of a story by Wodehouse. Mr. Niemoeller ls enormously funny. A tendency to slow response on cues is more than offset by the quality of his response when lt does come. HEIMANN PRAISED Eustasia, the addle-brained female, ls given ridiculous life by Margaret Heimann. The scene in which she reads Gibbons’ “'Roman Empire” to Leonard, who cannot stay awake, ls a highlight of the show. As Nicholas. Henry Kehler contributes a touch of welcome sanity to the play. His ie a delightful portrayal of the inoffensive, comfortable, pipe-smoking young Englishman. Domenic, ex-pugilist butler, is Soviets Hall Acts To Raise Support Greek Scholarship Russian Agreement To Join Anti-Nazis Overshadows Coup Journalists Invade Troy Tomorrow Four Hundred Editors Will Tour Campus, Hear Prominent Newsmen More than 400 high school and Junior college editors and Journalism advisers will gather on the S.

Cecil* Hallingby Twenty-Four Elected To Amazons Hallingby To Announce Pledges of Group Today at Assembly Twenty-four new Amazons will be escorted to the stage of Bovard auditorium at 10 o'clock this morning, when Cecile Hallingby, president of the group, announces the neophytes at the annual Amazon announcement assembly. Members will be stationed at the aisles, and as each woman's name ls read she will be assisted to the stage. PLEDGING TO BE MONDAY The pledging ceremonies of the women's honorary service organization will take place Monday, at which time the new members will be given the pledge badge of black and white ribbons, which they will wear until Initiation ln May. The Amazons were founded in 1921, as a service organization comparable to the Trojan Knights. Membership ln the honorary ls limited at present to 40. The insignia consists of a 14-pointed shield, a Trojan head, and two battle axes. Included in the services performed by the Amazons are assisted at registration, helping new students orient themselves at this university, ushering at football games and assemblies, and serving on election committees. The organization Is also in charge of the women’s traditional arm-banding ceremony for freshman women. DEAN SMITH COMMENTS Dean pearle Aikin-Smith congratulates the newly-elected Amazons, adding that “Choosing the list of Amazons ls perhaps the most significant event in the spring semester, because the women selected are the ones who wlll be called upon to serve and represent their university ln its most important activities, and they carry on the traditions of SC.” Cecile Hallingby, president of the Amazons comments on the election, “We fee! that the women whom we have elected have merited their membership, because of their outstanding service to the unlver-'ty, and we hope that the sophomores who petitioned and were not elected will continue their activities and feel free to petition again next term.” Educator Of Chinese Honored LONDON, March 23—(I'P)—Soviet | Russia today formally agreed to a j four-power “stop Hitler" declara- j tlon as Chancellor Adolf Hitler tightened his Nazi grip on the heart of Central Europe and. by means of treaties with Rumania and tiny Slovakia, acquired a vast reservoir of war strength. 80 swift and omlnus were the developments in Central Europe that they overshadowed Hitler's triumphal entry into Memel where he dropped a hint that he had finished wiping out the world war "injustices of Germany.” WRITTEN PLEDGES EXPECTED Russia's formal support of the “stop Hitler” declaration, which may lead to Inclusion of the Soviet army in Anglo-French military I consultations, came during consul- I tat tons between the British and J called back to that country and French looking toward written Dr. von KleinSmid Will Confer Degree On Noted Lecturer Dr. John Calvin Ferguson will receive the degree of doctor of of laws by Dr. Rufus B. von KleinSmid today at 12:30 p.m. ln the president's suite in the Administration building.

Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain told the House of Commons today that Britain ls “resolved by all means” to oppose further destruction of European states under threat of armed force but explained that he still was unable to advise parliament of efforts to form a four-power “stop Hitler" bloc among Britain, France, Russia, and Poland.
