The Seguin, Gazette-Enterprise - Thursday, November 24, 1988 - Page 5 • SAN MARCOS — Southwest Tex- I as State University Playwright-in• Residence Dr. Charles Pascoe has rpetined an original children's drama -about the, importance of conserving '^ater and preserving the Edwards us all story of aquifer from the Edwards Aquifer," Pascoe explained. Texadua is played by William Brian Moore, a freshman theatre major from Sinton. "Through a series of events, one of the spirits is sent to the outside world," the playwright explains, "tie brings back a geologist from a university and the geologist explains a shopping center has been built ih and 'Drama Building theatre directly above their cave* The shop- the second floor and close after ping center and its concrete parking i iriatinee performance at 2 p.m. lot have kept the rain from permeating through the ground to draw the „ \ curtain will go up on the first :<p six p&formanees of "Cave Song" " 17:30 p.m. Nov. 29 in the SWT -; The aquifer drama, featuring cave 'spirits, stalactites and stalagmites 111 reopen in Mardh for audiences school children. Even though it close at the end of the spring -semester, Pascoe said it will be "included in the summer children's .theatre program that opens the fourth week in June and continues ^through the third week in July. : The aquifer drama will ( be on Sstage during the Edwards Aquifer .Research and Data Center's water ^symposium on the Comal and San 'Marcos Springs, Dec. 2-3. The EARCD along with the Edwards Underground Water District, head- qUartered in San Antonio, and the Guadalupe-Blancp River Authority, headquartered in Seguin, have funded Pascoe's play. l! "I can't imagine a better way to "get across the message to conserve .water and protect the aquifer than 'Gave Song,'" the playwright said. "Nothing engages the mind of a child as deeply as does live theatre with the possible exception of creative dramatics when they are doing it themselves." ""'In dormant form, the characters of "Cave Song" are.stalactites and stalagmites. After years of dormancy, the stalactites and stalagmites awaken to become cave spirits and discover they have not grown. 'Pascoe said a stalagmite and a stalactite were destined" to join together to form a column in their midst, but that has not yet happened. The reflecting pool in the cave also has vanished. :*-*These events are of great con- cjjrn to Texaqua, the ancient spirit ^f", necessary minerals to form stalactites and stalagmites." Pascoe declined to reveal the dramatic ending to the "Cave Song," but he did say it involved a rock band called "The Zitz." Another * message the drama delivers is that the aquifer is a body of flowing water. "It's not a stagnant pool," Pascofc said. "If we consider it a body of flowing water like an underground river, then it is to be given the same rating as a surface river. "Once water is created it .never goes away," Pascoe continued. Puddle, portrayed by Angela Yackley, sophomore theatre arts major from Houston, began as a tear from Davy Crockett's eye, the playwright explained, "She percolated through the ground, and luckily, she found this underground stream." Puddle is Texaqua's protege. Pascoe said he always has been intrigued by caves, sensing their wonderment and mysteriousness. Caves also impart a feeling of being in a cathedral, he added. Director Jay Jennings said water conservation is something that people conveniently ignore. Therefore, beginning to teach water conservation in elementary school, the play's target audience, is not too soon. He added that "Cave Song" can make an important impression on university students as well as adults because 99 percent of them do not know the importance of the Edwards Aquifer. Even children from other parts of the state, who view the play next summer, will benefit because the aquifer is important to everyone, he ,said. • Jennings' co-director is Pascoe, and student assistant director is Penny K. Morrison, a sophomore theatre arts major from Tuleta. Stage manager is E. Murray Smith II, a .sophomore theatre arts major from Dallas, and his assistant is Karen Eileen Alexander, a sophomore theatre arts major from Houston. Other members of the cast are Basso, the great stalactite, played by Gustavo Garcia, a junior music performance major from Weslaco; Buf- Most airlines eliminating lowest discount air fares *NEW YORK (AP) — The cjiances of finding a bargain airlines ticket are a lot smaller today than tjfey were two days ago. j£The nation's biggest airlines said Tuesday they are going through with previously disclosed plans to boost most of their lowest discount air fares and eliminate the cheap fares that can be booked a few days before a flight • The changes, announced last week, would revamp the popular advance-purchase "MaxSaver" fares used by most vacation travelers. They would also drop the so- called "junk fares" available four to seven days before a flight, which are used mainly by business travelers. ' 'The changes went into effect at midnight Tuesday. ' Carriers adopting the changes include United Airlines, American Airlines, Northwest Airlines, Trans World Airlines and Delta Air Lines. i;Under the MaxSaver changes, fares for longer flights generally will be raised and those for shorter, hauls will mostly ( :be reduced;>That means roughly two-thirds, of the fares will go up, and the remainder; will fall. The new formula based on flight mileage replaces the airlines' past practice of setting fares according to competition on individual routes. The changes in MaxSaver fares generally range from a $20 reduc-^ tion to a $40 increase on a roundtrip ticket "We have been heavily inundated with phone calls," said David Perelman, president of DMS Travel Inc. in midtown Manhattan. He noted that the demise of the last-minute junk fares means, for example, that a passenger flying from Newark, NJ., to Kansas City, Mo., would pay $296 round trip if he booked Tuesday on a three-day advance basis. But as of Wednesday, the cheapest round-trip fare for the same Crip will be $757.
