Africa Demands Freedom, Women's Society Is Told CHAPPAQUA— Members of the Women's Socie­ ty of the First Congregational Church saw a slide on their mo­ tion picture screen of an African girl wearing a skirt bearing the bold legend \Freedom by 1960.\ The slogan, they were told last Thursday at their monthly lunch­ eon meeting, was the kevnote in the situation today in Africa. Their speaker was the Rev. Alexander Brown Ferguson, di­ rector of film and television for the National Council of Churches of Christ in the USA Mr. Fergu­ son, recently returned from a tour of Africa, spoke on 'This is Afri­ ca\ and gave a spectacular, fact- filled showing of color slides of tlv? cities, the beauties and the people at work and worship on that continent. Ghana is typical of West Afri­ ca, Mr. Ferguson explained. With a climate too torrid for whites, the predominantlv black country can modernize at its own pace, the added. In East Africa, however, the climate is ideal and the en­ trenched whites are prosperous while the blacks are restless.

CE 2-4240 Repairs On Premises cated Africans, .is asking succinct­ ly, \Who is to determine whether the African should have his in­ dependence, when he is ready to reach out and take it?\ A hopeful sign appears in Nyas- aland, Mr. Ferguson continued, where an interracial college is functioning successfully. Farther north, the Wachagga tribe has built cooperatives along tribal lines. Christian churches, like the Congregational mission in Barn- bur, are growing, but Mr. Fergu­ son warned that Islam is sweep­ ing Africa, carried to the remote villages in the bush by the Mos­ lem traders who double effective­ ly as missionaries. In the great modern cities like Brazzaville, the speaker stated, there are buses, modern apart­ ments and colleges, and the more educated Africans are demand­ ing more than the opportunity to learn to read at a Christian mis­ sion school. \Africa is a vacuum,\ declar­ ed Mr. Ferguson, \and only at its peril can the west now turn away its face.\ North Wesfchesfer Times, New Castle Tribune, Mount Kisco, N.Y., Oct. 22, 1959 Pi Phi Alums In County Meeting Today CHAPPAQUA- Mrs. Allen O'Donnell of Buffalo, Province, vice president of Pi Beta Phi sorority, will address the West­ chester Alumnae Club at its meet­ ing today (Thursdav) at the homo of Mrs. Walter Mersheimer of Scarsdale.

Citizens' Committee Named: To Select Bliss Replacement Drama Group Schedules Production CHAPPAQUA— When the Chappaqua Drama Group presents their production! of Terrence Rattigan's well known play \Separate Tables\ at the Horace Greeley High School on Nov. 6 and 7, they will be taking one more step in their fight to es­ tablish themselves as an integral part of the community. Throughout the entire United States Little Theatre plays an im­ portant part in community life, offering one of the most loved arts to the public and a working place for people who willingly give their timp because of their devotion to the theatre. Equally important is the fact that when various or­ ganizations work with these thea­ tre groups, it is to the mutual ad­ vantage of all concerned. Many Benefits The Chappaqua Drama Group has worked with the Lion's Club for the benefit of the American Field Service, has given benefit performances with proceeds used to purchase electrical and light­ ning equipment for the new Hor­ ace Greeley High School stage, as well as benefits for the Chap­ paqua Library Fund and the Par ent Teachers Association. Theatre groups in this area have the prox imity of New York City and Broad way as their stiffest competition but the calibre of the productions that have been presented in the last few seasons certainly war rants a good look at what is clos­ er to home. Experienced Cast In the cast of \Separate Tables,' headed by Marjorie Duram Becky Herrick, Betty Goldsmith, Deanna Sweet, Tom Pulliam and Bert Lange, the director, Arthur Dur­ am has a group of performers who have worked with community theatres in Oakridge, Tenn., Be rea, Ohio, Brunswick. Maine, Kan­ sas City, Mo., Springfield, III., and with such well known groups as the Strolling Players of London, the St. Louis Community Opera Co. the Goodman Theatre of Chicago, and the John Drew Workshop Theatre of Easthampton, Long Is­ land. This season the Drama Group is offering subscriptions for their two productions \Separate Tables\ and Henrik Ibsen's \Ghosts the lat­ ter to be presented in the spring and directed by Ralph Porter who will be remembered for his direc­ tion of the Drama Group's \Sil­ ver Whistle\ and \The Solid Gold Cadillac.\ Blocks of tickets are also being offered at a dis­ count to organizations who wish to use them for fund raising. Information regarding ticket sales may be obtained by calling Mrs. Seymour Robinson at Mt. Kisco 6-8806.
