Broadway Hit Replaces
Abandoned Canoe Fete
In his sunny, picture-filled office in the little drama studio
behind Johnson hall, Horace Robinson is making' final plans
for what he hopes will be a ‘near professional treatment” of
the Kaufman-Gershwin musical Broadway hit, ‘‘Of Thee i
Sing. ’ ’
“It seemed the logical campus-wide choice since the canoe
fete was abandoned, and since plans of one sort and another
of “Of Thee I Sing” have been made for the past two years,”
he said. Mr. Robinson also men
tioned that there have been ap
peals from various sources to give
a musical show whenever cam
pus schedules permitted.
Since the McArthur court con
cert stage is too small, Mr. Rob
inson intends to use an auxiliary
stage on the balcony level such
as the one used in “Peer Gynt,”
which he directed. "The staging
will be fairly simple,” he said,
“and the whole production will be
popular and comic.”
“Of Thee I Sing” was first pro
duced on Broadway for one year'
and had a two-year tour. Its stars
were William Gaxton and Victor
The play is a satiric scries of

Past Plays
Mr, Robinson directed “With
Fear and Trembling,” a similar
show in 1939. More recently his
plays have been “Of Mice and
Men,” “George Washington Slept
Here,” "Goodbye Again,” “Em
peror Jones” and “Ethan Frome.”
He has directed and taught in
