This does not mean however, that the theater should be turned over to strictly non-proics-sionals. he said. "Tile average actor, for example, is an ama-| teur who has other work and .just spends his spare time in 1 the theater. Many of these people." he said, "are capable of turning in excellent performances." Starts As Bum The person who expee make his living acting, he tmued. is too often lrust by its commercial aspects, starts out as a bum. In to make money, he appeal television.

The reason regular companies cannot strike out for new | things, he declared, was because iney could not attract an audience. In Other Countries “In other countries.” he said, ‘‘there are true theater-goers, with a love for the art. In America, and especially New York, a person will only go to ! see a hit. He won’t go,” he pointed out. "until people say it is good.

To illustrate his point, he told a story of a friend who had seen "My Fair Lady" three times. "The first time, the audience was laughing at every joKe,” he said " i he seco.id j time my friend saw it. an un- J derstudy was playing Rex Harrison's roie and no one was amused at the funny lines. The follow, o.' course, blamed it on Harrisons absence. The last time he saw it. however, Harrison wus hack and still no one was laughing."

Four SC P a inters Caught Bridge Lot To Be Closed The Brid ye Hall parking lot, entering from Exposition Blvd., will not be open to student parking for at least 1 lie ne\t siy months. Due to construction of a linear accelerator in the Xu-rlear Physics Building, it is necessary to remove 101) spaces from the faculty parking lot. Therefore, faculty parking has been transferred to the Bridge lot. This new parking arrangement will take away l‘!8 spaces from students. However. it has not been decided whether the arrangement is permanent. Rites Held for SC Employee Funeral services were held last Thursday for Mrs. Louise Mattson, an employe of the purchasing department, who died in her home in Manhattan Reach last Monday. Four Reasons for Optimism Explained at Worship Hour By BAKBAK\ KK\MP Dr. Richard N Render discussed the four reasons why we should l>e oplimisls in his sei-Sunday morning in Bov ai d orium for the regular wor-hour. He is secret ray of on in higher education for Board of F.duca- mon Aud ship religion i the Methodis tion. In his disc listed as hi? optimism, fir there is a C.c vei se is ha human value there is a mn lhat the grcs always those prestige to those who ai ussion. Dr. Render four reasons tor *t. that we believe d; second, ihe uni-;icalh friendly to s; that we lielieve ral law; and finally test people are not with the titles or be Reclaimed hut e the hackbone of our civilization, the average working peonie. Living Life He said that a pessimist is one who must live with an optimist because all 1o t mist iv Mindly formed and cause he does r about proble Dr. Rendei renturv wher i- »quently an opti-living lite unin-i:nteliit-em, be- ar. iiK senou .ed the 1« il y v\ ,1 s c, “Religi< t rouble .11- people were conciline: sciouc^ with the law, and m realizing that the universe is basically friendly to human values,” he said. "But they lor-got that some laws help man do things and are therefore helpful to human values while others arc destructiv e." Mechanistic Meaning During this period, he said, people thought it absurd that one could believe in the existence of God and in the mechanistic meaning of the universe. "They didn't provide for the interference of Cod." "In the 20th century views changed and jieople realized 1hat there are alternatives. General laws don't have lo do everything and they do not fit each thing we do. We have a choice and a chance to make decisions.” he said. Moral Law Speaking on his third point. Dr. Render stressed that Christians sometimes have trouble with the moral law. "To often we try to make it rigid and machine-like.” He explained that moral law is love inteipreted tor us in Jt;us Christ. It is a general mitral lhvv for nviiikind and many times it cannot i>e applied specifieafly to any one situation. "Love can be marital or romantic, but it is never lust. It is ' the name for the manner in which people act.” Dr. Bender said. "We should give llianks to God. for the love we find in Jesus Christ is the moral law itself.” We should further thank God that tlie moral law is translated in the lives of the ordinary "garden variety” of persons, he s.ud. "These are the people who have the law of love in their lives and who are keeping 1he many communities operating and Ihe wonderful places they are today.” He said the problems of Hie world will l>e handled by people with technical competence, college graduates, but they must understand the average person who will be carry ing out the will of the leader. "God seeks us out on every level of society and uses us with concern and thought." By ARNOLD (OLE Daily Trojan Managing Editor Four SC men received a con-j ditional 30-da.v suspended sen-: fence and a $10 fine after pleading guilty Friday to charges of splashing paint on I'CLA sorority houses early' Fric.ay morning. Arrested for malicious mis-! chief were Arthur Hurd, Michael Thompson. Anthony White and I Maytor McKinley. Judge Leo Freund of Municipal Court 33 susnended the jail sentence on conditions that the four defendants scrape the paint off the Delta Gamma and Pi Reta Phi houses to the satisfaction of the house mothers. Repaint Entire Side ! "If it's necessarv you’ll repaint t he entire side of the house." the Judge fold the defendants. He then set the case aside until Dec. •! at a rehearing to see if fie order has been com-j plied with. Tried Resisting Arrest Cant. Nicholas Janise of the CCLA camnus police said that the four men "wouldn't have i been hooked if thev had not tried to resist arrest." He said that a patrol car had to force them to the curb which caused the police car to collide, which resu’ted in minor damages. Another 23 SC students were rounded up between 3 and 4:30 j a.m. the same morning on the UCLA campus. Capt. Janise said that the police took the names and regis- j tration cards of those involved and ordered them to appear be- : fore him at 10 a.m. for a "discussion." The men’s names have been turned over to the Dean of Students office for further j action. Reached Its Peak The SC campus was also hit w ith paint episodes late Tliurs- ; day night as cross-town rivalry ! readied its peak in preparatio.' j for the Troy-Bruin football game Saturday.

The men were later apartment near thev had their i taken to an 1 campus where heads shaved. Sent On Way Another incident flared Friday morning as ten SC students attempted to "kidnap” UCLA Ye'l-i Leader Gary Cooper on the pretense of taking him downtown for a publicity picture. Meanwhile, observers have reported that the campus across town, berinning with the sororities on Hilgard Ave.. sport crimson paint on lamp posts, doors, j curbs, sidewalks and other campus landmarks. Kirkoff Hall was so splattered that 20 men were called to sandblast the walls Friday morning. World Affairs Meeting Set More than 100 western university educators, Washington D.

Hadley, Professor of International Relations, told the Sierra Mar Business and Professional Women's Club Saturday. Dr. Hadley, speaking of national morale, said. "A factor of strength in international politics is made up of local morale, of local hates and fears, of social intolerance, of family quarrels; of personal jealousies or j it is made up of healthy communities. the cooperation between Republicans and Demo-erats, between whites and Negroes. between Catholics. Pro- , testants and Jews and between capitalism and labor._________ , common of Russia, the West. Dahl continued, * Russian characteristic to the intelligentsia is his sympathy with leaning away from Russian folklore towards western culture. Stravinsky was conscious of internationalism even as a youth. He speaks German fluently and has known French since childhood. (Continued on Page Two) L. A. Churches Offer Services For Holiday t h e M e t Wils tier U By MARY ANN WITZKE Ingolf Dahl will conduct the first We.st Cna.^t performance of Igor Stravinsky's "Persephone" tonight at 8:30 in Bovard Auditorium. This work, ba.^ed on the Homeric spring legend, will be performed by the SC Symphony Orchestra, Trojan A Cappclla Choir, Monday Even- -------------------—----------------------- ing Concert Ensemble and members of the Opera Chorus. Dahl, admirer and personal friend of Stravinsky, said that this is one of the Composer’s "most neglected masterpieces.” This work has been performed only three other times in America, two times in New York and once in Minneapolis, Minn. Musical Daring “Persephone is a d m i r a b 1 y simple,” Dahl explained. “Stravinsky continuously refused to use the full musical resources of chorus and orchestra except at places where they would achieve t he greatest effects, thus obtaining great color. "Daring in music is not only-expressed in violent clashes.” continued Dahl. "Daring can be simplicity on a large scale. Concentration of simplicity, not naivete. ! "The most French of all Stra-I vinsky's works, 'Persephone’ contains the French perfume of melody grace. The vocal tone is light with bass voices seldom used. Darkness and heaviness is portrayed mainly by the orchestra.” he said. Fatalistic Drama “The thing that most amazes me about the piece." said Dahl. "is Stravinsky’s power of unfolding, proportioned so that fatalistic drama is built up although the music, for the main part is soft and slow." "Andre Gide. who wrote the poem for ‘Persephone.’ endows Persephone with a compassion and pity that are essentially Christian, and that are not present in the classical sources.” said Dr. Arthur J. Knodel of the French Department. "From the very outset, Gide had intended his text to be subordinate to a musical setting." Robinson Is Tenor The tenor soloist for this \ work, Richard Robinson, sang this role last season with the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Robinson. who studied at SC with Dr. Charles Hirt. was chosen by Stravinsky for his role of Eu-molpus. the high priest. Charlotte Hyde, narrator, also sings professionally. Miss Hyle is of French origin and is at present employed here by the French government. Commenting about Stravinsky himself. Dahl said. “Hr* is the most earthly vital man I have ever seen or met. Any contact with him has a vitalizin»g effect. He is likended unto a piece of uranium, radiating through a quality inherent in the object itself."
