Friday, October 13, 1961 DANCERS PERFORM in the Theatre d'Art du Ballet's performance of "Carnaval." The troup will appear in Page Auditorium Monday night at 8:15 under the auspices of the Student Union fine arts committee. Ballet To Perform Here US-Canada Tour During Le Theatre d'Art du Ballet, touring the United States and Canada for the first time, will appear Monday at 8:15 p.m. in Page under the auspices of the Student Union fine arts committee. The young company has recently finished a South American tour, and previously appeared in Europe and the Orient. The company of thirty-five is dedicated to the romantic tradition of ballet, and each dancer is trained as a soloist. The name is an homage to the philosophy of the Moscow Art Theatre, where the "star system" was secondary to a spirit of "harmonious unity." Anna Galina Prima Ballerina Anna Galina will dance the lead in three of the four presentations here-— "The Fountain of the Blind," "Spectre of the Rose," and Carnaval." Miss Galina, born in America of French ancestry, has studied ballet since she was nine. At 16 she went to Paris to study tinder Madame Tatiana Piankova, now artistic director and ballet mistress for the company. Four years ago when Madame Piankova staged a festival of Michel Fokine's ballets at Monte Carlo, Miss Galina received Gross Speaks Nov. 2 At SU 'Last Lecture' Dr. Paul Gross, professor of chemistry here, will deliver a "Last Lecture" November 2 at 8:15 p.m. in the Union Ballroom. Gross's talk will be given in conjunction with the "Last Lecture series" instituted last year by Student Union's educational affairs committee. Former vice-president of the University, Gross also serves as chairman of the committee of consulates appointed by the Surgeon-General of the United States Public Health Service to consider environmental health problems. According to Susan Oehl, chairman of the educational affairs committee, the speakers in this series are asked to say what they would say if giving their last lecture. The only other "last lecture" speaker slated for this year is Dr. Thomas Cordle, professor of French. He will speak March 13. critical acclaim, and Le Theatre d'Art du Ballet was born. Fokine's work will be represented on the program here by "Carnaval"' (to Robert Schumann's music) and "The Spectre of the Rose," (music by Weber), considered by authorities the most poetic of Fokine's repertory. Two ballets choreographed by William Dollar will also be seen in Page. "The Fountain of the Blind," with music by Gabriel Faure, is adapted from the story "Pelleas and Melisande." "Simple Symphony," a neo-classic ballet to Benjamin Britten's music, is the one in which Miss Galina will not appear. Tickets are on sale in Page box-office for $1.50, $2'.00, and $2.50. Liberal Group Favors Charter Referendum By bill Mcpherson Chronicle News Editor Students for Liberal Action last night proposed a campus- wide referendum on an amendment to the MSGA Constitution which would make Senate chartering of campus organizations mandatory. If the amendment passes, the Senate will be constitutionally compelled to charter any organization in which members of the University community form a majority of membership. The section to be amended (article VI, section D) stipulates that the Senate "shall have the power to charter, to supervise, to regulate, and to determine the status of all men's student campus clubs and organizations." The demand for constitutional revision was hastened by the Senate's adoption of specific chartering criteria. Under the Senate criteria, groups applying for charters had to satisfy the Senate that their principal concern was with the welfare of the University community. No Chartering Sandy Levinson, MSGA Senator, noted that he "would like to see no chartering whatsoever." The group originally favored Levinson's proposal, but decided against stripping the Senate of chartering power, fearing that such action could lead to chartering by H. J. Herring, vice- president of the University in the Division of Student Life. Rex Adams, moderator for the meeting, stated that there would be some form of chartering, since Allen Building would not accept abolition of the chartering process. "Let our group become champions of a liberal charter reform movement," he suggested. The group will meet Sunday, at 7 p.m., to plan further action.
