Thespians Score With 'Oedipus' By JERRY CHOPPIN What better tribute could an actor have than an exhausted curtain-puller? Three encores and although the audience was still going strong, the curtain wouldn't open. Such was the reaction of an under-capacity opening night audience of Sophocles' "Oedipus Rex." The play, which runs through Sunday night, was done in the ancient Greek style, with legend and chorus. Its presentation was evidence of a well-deserved reputation of Thespians for bringing to Loyola and New Orleans theatergoers samplings of the wide variety of dramatic offerings. In all fairness to Georke Kelly, it must be admitted that Don Barnett was the best actor in the play. Just as in "Duck," Don was completely in his part. In his portrayal as the aged Teiresias, Don carried his own unique atmosphere with him. His scene with George was the most interesting and dramatic in the play. This episode made all others pale in comparison. Teddy Pfister, with his very natural presentation, also rated very high. In his own inimitable manner, Teddy made his appearance seem a relief from the pompousness of the setting. Teddy's only faults were minor ones—one early reaction and an occasional lapse into his "Coleman" accent. His constant stage presence made up for these, however. Dick Smith, although he tried hard, failed to give the proper strength to the character of the priest. On the technical end, the costumes deserve praise. Sally Mc- Namara and her crew outdid themselves in this task. The same could be said for the makeup job, especially for George's "bloody eyes." The legend preceding the first scene was a bit too long, since much of it was repeated during the play. In a final look, however, "Oedipus Rex" is well worth seeing—tonight or the next two nights. TESSIE LOPEZ Countess of Listowel Sets Forum Address On Russia vs Church The Countess of Listowel, noted author and editor, will speak on "The Battle In East Europe—Soviet Russia vs. the Cahtolic Church" at the Loyola Forum in the Grand Ballroom of the Jung, Thursday at 8 p.m. The Countess has travelled widely on the continent and has attended many of Eurpoe's more prominent universities. After graduating from Budapest University, she won a scholarship to the London School of Economics, where she received her degree with honors in 1929. By becoming the first woman editorial writer in Hungary she established her career as a journalist. Already well known in American diplomatic and literary circles, the English Countess gave several lectures here prior to World War 11. At 17 the served as hostess of the Hungarian Legation in Rome, where her father was counsellor, and since then she has travelled through all the European capitals with various diplomatic services. Her insights into the war "This I Have Seen," in book-form, ran into four editions and her new book, "The Hidden War," appeared last August. She also publishes the weekly "East Europe and Soviet Russia" which is a condensation of new developments and information inside Soviet Russia and Soviet dominated countries. While in London covering the World Economic Conference in 1933, she married William Francis Hare, Earl of Listowel, successively Post Master General, First Secretary of State for India and Minister of State for Colonial Affairs in the British government.
