Daily SVftus Sunday Morning. September 24.1978 New Play Opens At Upper Deck Shop Downtown and all Branches Monday night 'til 9. Galveston College's second theater presentation of the season. "You Know 1 Can't Hear You When The Water's Running" opened Friday in the Upper Deck Theater. Directed by Jesse Loya, the comedy is a quartet of short plays written by acclaimed author Robert Anderson. Anderson is well known for his plays "Tea and Sympathy" and "1 Never Sang For My Father." The play was an 18-month hit on Broadway, and as in the stage production, some of the cast will take on more than one role. The first episode of the omnibus comedy is "The Shock of Recognition". It concerns a playwright who is trying to provide a shock for his audiences in a play he has written while his producer wonders whether or not it is proper. "The Footsteps o) Doves" concerns the conflicting attitudes of a long-married couple buying a double bed or twin beds and the surprising resolution of their argument. The third episode, "I'll Be Home for Christmas" examines a husband and wife facing their children's adolescence. And the fourth episode, "I'm Herbert" is a dialogue between an elderly couple whose senility takes the form of mistaking each other for previous mates. The play will be presented again tonight. Sunday and Sept. 29. 30 and Oct. i. Curtain time (or Friday and Saturday performances Is 8:15 p.m. with the two Sunday performances at 2 p.m. For reservations to the adult- level comedy, call the box office at 744-9661. Parental guidance is suggested. Striking Teachers Aren't 'Cracking' About one-fifth of the 1,250 public-school teachers in Bridgeport, Conn., are doing jail time in an old National Guard barracks, but they say "we're not cracking" in their 3-week- old strike. "We feel we're political prisoners," an unidentified spokesman for the 271 jailed teachers said Friday. "We've sent a letter to Andrew Young at the United Nations, indicating his remarks about political prisoners should include us." Across the nation, teacher walkouts have halted or curtailed classes for more than 250,000 elementary and high school pupils and 180.000 college students in 13 states. Busloads of Bridgeport school children visited their jailed teachers Friday at and old National Guard camp in Windsor Locks, Conn. Lois Coffey, who organized the 65-mile journey, said she wanted her two daughters to know their teachers are alive and well. The. spokesman for the teachers, jailed for refusing to obey a judge's back-to- work order, said conditions were adverse but the teachers were coping. "There are 144 women in one barracks and 115 men in another, and there are now 12 men living in a condemned barracks in which the conditions are very bad," he said. "We're not cracking. Nobody has cracked yet." No progress in the negotiations was reported and the teachers were joined in picketing by professors at the University of Bridgeport. The public- school strike had idled 23,000 students and the university strike canceled classes for 5,000. In Chicago, city college officials and striking instructors met with Mayor Michael Bilandlc for most of the day, trying to reach a mediated settlement to avert cancellation of the fall semester. The governing board for the 110,000- student college system has set a Monday deadline for a settlement or it says it will cancel the fall term. Bilandic. bowing to pressure from students, agreed to mediate the dispute, which involves mainly the board's demand that each instructor teach an extra course each semester. Classes at Detroit's Wayne State University and Community College in Lansing, Mich., were held despite faculty strikes. Teachers at Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilantt overwhelmingly ratified a new three-year contract late Friday, ending a strike that interrupted the start of fall classes for 20,000 students for more than a week. The board of education in Warren Consolidated — Michigan's fourth-largest school district with 32,000 students — voted late Friday to fire 36 striking teachers for defying a court order to return to their classrooms. The 36 apparently were selected at random, since more than 1,400 teachers are on strike in the district. No progress has been reported in Cleveland, where 101,000 students are out of school, and Seattle, where 55,000 pupils have been idled for three weeks.
