Inventive Press Foreman
Keeps ’ Emeralds Coming
By HELEN SHERMAN
An inventive print-shop foreman, Steve Cady, made it pos
sible for the Emerald to be printed as scheduled this term.
The printing press is made for one roll of 35-inch paper.
Because of the paper shortage, only 17x/2 inch paper was avail
able at the beginning of the school year. For a while, it seemed
as though there would be no daily publication.
€VIr. R. C. Hall, superintendent of the University print shop
ana associate proiessor oi jour
nalism, said, “By sheer ingenious
ness in working out a plan whereby
two rolls Could be run at one time,
Steve and Lloyd Blazer, the press
man, made it possible for the Emer
ald to be printed. Using a home
made wooden and metal con
trivance, the “backshop” was able
to put outl the paper this term
Sixteen years of service in the
University print shop has undoubt
edly enhanced the loyalty of
Steve, who has worked in the pub
lishing business most of his life.
Complimented' on his fine piece of
work, StevC replied, “In my ca

sary to see that the Emerald would
Mr. Hall announced that plenty

Four thousand copies of the daily
Emerald, tpe desired number of
issues, will-be available to the stu

jolly Uncle Smellicue, and Cliff
James, as the boastful, Marvin
Hudgens. Credit for the lighting and
stage setting goes to Edwin Clark,
technical director, and Horace W.
Two particular scenes, both in Act
Two, kept the audience muffled and
tense. Scene Two, in John and Bar
bara’s cabin, when she learns that
her baby was born a witch and has
been burned, was played with as
j fine a professional flair as has been
seen on a University theater stage.
Scene four, the famous revival epi
sode, jerked the audience back and
forth between gales of laughter j
and tight intentness. Bari Hodes,
as Barbara Allen, turns in a partic- -
ularly creditable performance here.
The ordinarily innocent Jane
Clark, who played the part of the
sensuous blonde witch girl rates
mention. Her shrill, trailing voice,
the flowing blonde hair, an exhibit
j of curvesome legs, and a series of
! postures on the mountainside that
went from the exciting to the near
vulgar, earned her the murmuring
approval of the audience.
Cliff James, as Marvin Hudgens,
the strongest man in the valley, j
came up* with a good bit of acting
in the revival scene when he “got
the call” and confessed his lust for
Barbara Allen. While who it was
hasn’t been determined, the person
responsible for the shrill, eerie
laughter of the witch girl’s .during
the entire performance rates a hand
clap or two herself.
On the debit side, the theater it
self was too warm for a majority of
those attending. The attempt on the
part of the cast to come up accur
ately with genuine Tennessee moun
tain dialect, was creditable enough,
but fell far short of anything re
sembling the real thing; sectional
ism, rather than inability, might
share the blame here.
