Chaff Previews ‘Martha'

Odd Opera Observations

By Faus, Foley, and Harris

The lights dimmed in the community building auditorium. As the darkness settled over the bamlike room, wierd sounds emerged from the dimly lighted pit in front of the stage.

The curtain opened. The opera "Martha" was about to begin.

Yes. dear students and conference guests, in order to bring you another public service. CHAFF visited the dress rehearsal of "Martha" to give you a sneak preview of this mammoth production with a cast of dozens. 6 hectic weeks in production. with a cost of lower 9-weeks grades for the entire cast.

Opera is an important spoke in the wheel of culture, but since it may be as new to you as it was to us. we thought we would*1

In the hunting chase scene, the hunters run around continually chasing deers (not dears, as before) and singing "Tally Ho. and away we go." There are 13 of these hunters, which turns out to be unlucky.

give you a guide to refer to when you attend the opening night performance this evening.

Now when we went, the first thing that happened after the curtain opened was a piercing scream. We later found out it was not part of the plot, but just the stage manager who had been stabbed for putting down the backdrop from Scene II of "Frankenstein and the Hairy Ape."

After they cleared up the mess, the plot went smoothly until the lead actress’s dress fell off. We

The part we liked was where one of these hunters comes in to shoot a deer.

He comes in front behind a tree, sees deer, and all in one smooth motion he draws arrow from quiver, drops arrow, picks up arrow, places arrow in bow. drops bow. drops quiver, picks up stuff, and smoothly replaces arrow in bow — after 12 tries, that is.

She does none of the useful things these 18th century maids did. such as stewing, glueing, shoeing, canoeing, billing, cooing ... .

Ah, for the good old days.

The wild chase in this fair scene should not be confused with the hunting chase which takes place later in the opera.

understand this has been cut from the plot to preserve the realistic effect of the 18th century costuming. and mainly because some of the Trustees may still be around.

In our opinion, one of the best parts is the Richmond Fair scene, where pretty maids are auctioned off to the local farmers to work as hired servants for a year.

The bow then falls to the ground. He picks up bow and drops arrow, picks up arrow and drops quiver, picks up quiver, drops bow, arrow, quiver, hat. pants, teeth, composure . . .

Next scene the 12 hunters come in carrying a casket.

For those of you who like romance. there will be a big love scene in the opera. Keep your eyes glued on the center section of the balcony.

But the main attraction of the opera is the grand finale, which alone is worth the price of the opera. Therefore, we advise you not to come before then.

Male Quartet Receives Compliment On Tour

• An article appearing in the Brooklyn ( Iowa) High School publication commented on the appearance of the McPherson College Male Quartet which appeared there Feb. 24.

The following is quoted from the article:

“The students commented on the talent displayed by the grout) and many said they enjoyed the performance more than any they had seen."

“Mary, I see where one college professor is suggesting that girls not be allowed to go to college.” "Goodness, what does he give as his reason?"

"Well, he has been rending the papers, and he has come to believe that college enrollments are rapidly rising everywhere and that there will soon be many youth who will not be allowed to go to college because there will be no space for them.'

"He thinks, therefore, a regulation ought to be made that girls be the ones who cannot go to college. Mary, is there any truth in these figures about rapidly rising enrollments?"

"Yes. Jane. It is true particularly in the East and in the Far West. It is not true in the middle part of the United States. But even in the East and the West, it is not nearly as rapid a rise as statistics seem to indicate.

"Many colleges in the East and West are spending thousands of dollars soliciting students. They  will not admit this openly, for fear if they do. it will appear as if their particular college is not Prof. Merlin Frantz, head of a popular college." the Teacher Placement Bureau.

to keep either boys or girls from going to college. Is that what you are saying?"

"Yes. as of now. Later, space may be more at a premium, but even if it is. do you think girls are the ones who should be excluded?"

"No. I do not. Girls will become the mothers of our homes: they should be educated for that. Moreover, women are exerting more and more influence in local communities, even in government. I think this trend should continue.

"Neither should girls be excluded from the professions. I think it is just as important for girls to have education as it is for boys. Excluding girls from college is not the solution.

"Enlarging college space and utilizing more fully the space now available in Christian colleges is more in the direction of the solution. in my judgment."

What do you think?

Mac Seniors Acquire Teaching Positions

A spontaneous gaiety pervades this scene and is shown by all but the wives of the farmers.

We think this quaint old custom should never have been dropped. and we are in favor of picking it up again. According to our cool, precise, mathematical calculations, the price these 18th century chaps paid for these maids would amount to about $15 per year at the current international exchange rate.

Anymore, a man has to pay $4000 per year for a secretary, and all she does is type for him

"Yes. she has a keen sense of rumor."
