Bakersfield Californian (Newspaper) - November 4, 1963, Bakersfield, California For the first time in its history, Bakersfield College Theater Lab has invited adults from the community to join with the regular day students of the college in the production of a play. The first procduction of this new group, the Evening Division of Bakersfield College Theater Lab, will be "Ring Round the Moon" by Jean Anouilh. The cast of this sparkling French farce includes., five Bakersfield College students, one from Fresno State Residence Center, three teachers and two adults from the business world. Robert Chapman, director, says "This new program gives us an opportunity to pick a much more balanced cast, and gives our younger students a chance to work with experienced actors as part of their education in the theatre." The teachers -who are participating 'in the production have all had extensive backgrounds in amateur theatre. Harry Loumea, English teacher and drama director at Arvin High, is familiar to Bakersfield audiences because of his preformances as male lead in "Send Me No Flowers." Jack Hicks, who teaches a' first grade class at Casa Loma School, has been active in Community Theatre. Although she is teaching home economics in the county schools this year, Judith Wiese has taught English and drama and has acted in a number of productions in the Bay area. Lo-dema Kitchen is working toward an elementary teaching credential at Fresno State Residence Center. She has acted with University of California and Bakersfield Community theatres. Winston Rust is probably the most experienced actor in the cast He acted in many Bakersfield College productions when he was a student here, participated in plays-at the University of Oregon,- acted in Bak-see farce-page M to be -CaUforaUn Photo As Pi Beta Phi will celebrate its centennory in four years, plans for a new century of service were sketched by Mrs'.

Mrs. French is Province vice president in charge of alumnae activities. Following-lunch Mrs. French spoke informally on projected plans for the fraternity's "second century of service. Pi Beta Phi will celebrate its 100th birthday in 1967. Proposals for a centennial project will be voted on at the Empress Hotel in Victoria, B.C., during the 1964 June convention. The project most widely accepted at this time is that of supporting a college level institution at Gatlinburg, Tenn., where Pi Beta Phi founded a Settlement School more than 50 years ago. The school, originally founded to teach members of the community arts and crafts, later extended its aid to the elementary and secondary levels. In 1930 the latter facilities were turned over to the county at a dollar a year rental. For 18 years University of Tennessee has given college credits for students completing the arts and crafts summer program which has been offered through a Settlement School summer workshop. The proposed college level facility would emphasize the field of arts and crafts, and would depend on cooperation with University of Tennessee in attaining ultimate full accreditation within a period of four or more years. In addition to Mrs. Green, and the honor guest, Mrs. French, those attending the meeting were Miss Dorothy Gibson and the Mesdames R. W. Beard, John Bidart, David Blggar, John Dermody, Morton D'Evelyn, Stanford Eschner, Tod Harding, George Holm-quist, Lewis Mahoney, George Newcomer, Max Newman, Lennart Palme, William Payn-ter. Evert Pickerel, J. Howard Porter, John Shipman, James Tuttle, and Thomas H. Werdel. Mrs. Tod Harding, president, announced that there will be no Settlement School tea and sale this year, but persons wishing to order articles may do so by calling Mrs. John Bidart.

Others hold out for Mt. Vernon, Arlington, Monticello and the coast trip to St. Augustine and Miami Beach, a portion of the trip upon which some went to Key West and others took a boat through the Everglades as most outstanding. A favorite highlight was the coast trip to St. Petersburg, Tallahassee and New Orleans, with dinner at An-toines. And gala also proved travel through Texas to Carlsbad Caverns and a farewell dinner party in Flagstaff where members of the group provided impromptu entertainment. Some who had not seen Yellowstone Park and Mount Rushmore felt the days passed in those areas, along with Salt Lake City, were near the head of the list. And others were most impressed with Hospitality House, a retired teachers' home in Minneapolis, where the group was royally received. The government buildings and embassies in Ottawa where the travelers visited following Chicago and Toronto intrigued everyone. The former teachers were also impressed by several other details apart from the spots visited : "Because the fall coloring was at its height, the weather ideal (only rain was outside Niagara on the Canadian side), the health and spirits soaring, the people friendly and cooperative, and the expenses low, we feel that the experience was 100 per cent successful," a spokesman said.
