This company of thirteen deaf actoIS will perform a group of short plays and poetry, com- bining mime, dance, manual sign- ing, music and narration in . an entirely new and eloquent concept of total theatre. The company ' s first two nationwide tours last year has earned the young enterprise rave reviews, and has demonstrated to audien - ces that something new and ex c iting in the theatre has emerged . . The afternoon program will include \THE LOVE OF DON PERLIMPLIN and BELLISA IN THE GARDEN\ by Federico Garcia Lorca , translated into manual language by Bernard Bragg and Robert Panara and directed by Melvin Bernhardt; \O N THE EVILS OF TOBAC- CO \ , a prose selection by Anton Chekhov; a Commedia del Arte Italian farce , 1 ' GIANNI SCHICCHI\ staged by Joe Layton; and \TYGER! TYGER! and OTHER BURNINGS\ a group of poems by such poets as Blake, Lewis Carroll and Eliza- beth Barrett Browning. In the evening, the company will pre- sent \ THE TALE OF KASANE\ a classic play from Japan direc - ted by famed Kabuki director, Yoshio Aoyama, and first brought to this country by the Metropolitian Opera; \BLUE- PRINTS\ a collection of poems; and ''THE CRITIC\ by Richard Sh e ridan, translated by Lou Fant and Eric Malzkuhn anp. directed by Joe Layton. The National Theatre of the Deaf was established under a government grant to the Eugene O ' Neill Memorial Theatre Found- ation, George C . White, presi- dent, by the Rehabilitation Ser- vice Administration, with which it established a school to broaden the professional basis of this theatre, and the subsequent tours acrws the nation.

Evans believes that students should be able to democratically control their non-academic living conditions as well as-their academic ones . He feel that if and when the students are found to be immature in their handlings ; then and only then , should the Administration intervene. Evans feel that the women are capable of under taking the campaign for women's curfews and says that he doesn ' t want to interfere. He explains that his · prime objective is to help the women launch a · successful campaign by going through a gradual process, culminating when the women are relocated in the tower. In a letter addressed to the A dministration, Evans wrote: \I would like to begin discussing and . solving this problem with you before it grows into full bloom in the near furture.\ FINGER S PELLING OFFERED RIT's library, in conjunction with the audio - visual department and Robert Gates, Coor.dinator of Training for NTI D are offer i ng a course of self-instruction in the American Manual Alphabet (fingerspelling) .
