THURSDAY, JULY 29, 1965. **' Audience Enjoys Presentation by Little Theater Time turned back to the "Gay Nineties" in the Indian head Mountain playhouse T u e s day night, as a highly appreciati v e audience enthusiastically endorsed the melodramatic performance of the old time melodrama, "Dirty Work at the Crossroads" by the Gogebic Range Little Theater cast. The audience wholeheartedly entered into the spirit of the gay nineties period, cheer i n g and applauding the heros and heroine, hissing and booing the villain and villainess, and pelt- Ing them with showers of peanut shells; sympathizing with the grief stricken, and enjoying the comedy and humor, of the unique phraseology and situations. Ripples of laughter punctuated by explosive bursts, and the unbounded applause gave evidence of the audience reaction. * * * The production opened Tuesday night, was repeated Wednesday evening, and will be given again tonight and Saturday, only. Curtain time is 8:30 p.m. Peanuts are available at the theater. "Dirty Work at the C r o s s- roads," first played under that title, in 1890, was revised from an old melodrama, "The Lancashire Lass" first produced in 1867. The 1890 version was further revised by playwright Bill Johnson, cutting down the innumerable scenes, deleting the elaborate stage settings and costuming, reducing the cast from 70 and simplifying it for amateur use. Under the artistic directi o n of Miss Earlene A. Bates, the acting technique of the day is retained, however. Diction and phraseology of the old time melodrama, asides and soliloquies spoken directly to the audience, tableaux, when all action feezes to emphasize the significance are excellent. G e s - tures are board and sweeping; entrances and exists are made with a flourish; songs are highly melodramatic. The playb i 11 is a duplicate of that used in the gay nineties; the introduction is unique and a complete surprise to the audience, as perform e d by Edwin Quistorff in "bar k e r style." * * * Adding greatly to the revival of the atmosphere is the musical accompaniment by Quistorff, expressive of the season of the year, the mood of the action, changing from gay and lilting, to sorrowful and sad, tragic, threatening, mysterious, with occasional fanfare bursts, and heralding the entrance of the various characters with their specific theme tune expressive of their character. The audience espec i a 11 y enjoyed the revival of such old time folk songs, as The Old Cuckoo Clock, by Nellie reminiscing on her childhood; All that Glitters Is Not Gold, and The Gypsies Warning by Ida, the Vampire; the County Fair song, 0 Fred, Tell Them to Stop and 1 Saw Essau, by Mookie the hired hand; Bohunkus, a so called Yale song by the villain Munro; The Eastern Train by Leonie, the sociliate prey of the vilain; and Nobody's Darling, by Little Nell. . Character roles are expertly developed by the various characters. Jim Swanson, the comedy character of the cast, stole the show by his interpretation of the typical, rustic hired man, ignorant and unschooled, loy a 1 to Nellie, and who, in the end, proves to be the hero. * * * Mary Ellen Finucan, as Nellie Lovelace, is the typical heroine of the old time drama, wide- eyed, Innocent, loving, ten d e r and kind, beautiful, and graceful, tempted by the villain, tried by the vicissitudes of life, yet remaining true to her love for Adam Oakhart. Kenneth Talaska plays Adam Oakhart, sturdy son of a blacksmith, operator of the town livery stable, strong and brave, innocent of the ways of the world, falling an easy prey to the dastardly villain's schemes even being jailed for murder. Anthony Philip Heald, as the villainous Monro Murgatroyd, ably depicts the big city dandy, evil, preying on his victims for his own selfish ends, leaving a trail of woe and destruction in his wake. Victoria Sanchez, plays Ida • Khinegold, vampirish, beautiful, enticing, unacknowledged wife of Murgatroyd, is a perfect vil- lainess aiding and abetting her husband in his schemes, inspired by a passion for revenge on her husband and her lust for riches, jewels and beautiful raiment and a life of ease. * * * Earlene Bates gave a heart touching performance of the Widow Lovelace, a gentle, white haired old lady, who lalls victim to the villain, a s u m m e r boarder at her home, in her zeal to protect her daughter, Nellie, from his advances. Ru,dlne Nolcox, as Mrs. Upson Asterbilt, widow of the wealthy 'wall street manipulator, beautifully portrays the command! n g dowager, .who haa a skeleton in IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN SEVEN , -yv f '»*?)' v»$? f r"?"^2 AIR FORCE MONSTER—Resembling something out of a James Bond thriller, this is the Mobile Remote Manipulating Unit developed by the FMC Corp., of San Jose, Calif. The unmanned monster will be used by the Air Force to perform tasks in hazardous radiation areas. Remotely controlled by the use of radio and television cameras, the arms and "hands" of the monster can be operated from a van a mile or more away to pick up items as small as a pencil or as heavy as a 600-pound weight. New VGA Chief Makes Promise To Tell Truth By EDMOND LE BRETON WASHINGTON (AP) — John W. Chancellor, newsman named to head the Voice of America, said today that official radio can be most persuasive about the United States' Viet Nam policy by sticking firmly to truth and balance. President Johnson announced Wednesday his choice of Chancellor, chief White House correspondent for the National Broadcasting Co. The President hailed him as the first working newsman to be put in charge of the government's world-girdling radio voice. "I am satisfied the President wants the Voice to tell the truth," Chancellor said in an interview. * * * He said he proposes to see that the official service observes the same standards of accuracy, judgment and balance as do unofficial U.S. news gathering agencies, and he added quickly, "I believe we have them now. The newscast is inviolate. People have to believe it. "If I can bring to VOA — to its own skillful people — a sort of outside invigoration, I will be performing a function." Chancellor took over the NBC White House job last November and before that,' he said, he had had no real personal contact with Johnson. "I had shaken hands with him, I had done some coverage, at a distance. I had never even interviewed him." * * * It was July 17, he said, when the President offered him the voice directorship. A surprise? he was asked. "A great shock," he replied. "I was happy as a flea at NBC," Chancellor went on, "but he has a way. My arm was never twisted, but he is able to make irrelevant all questions of career and money and present job and make you think truly in terms of service. He left me no ethical alternative." Chancellor lives in Northwest Washington with his wife, the former Barbara Upshaw, a California girl, and their two children, Laura, 6, who was born in Vienna, and Barnaby, 5, who was born in London. His 14- year-old daughter by a former marriage, Mary, is visiting in Europe "and I hope listening to the Voice," her father said. Official Entry Form Colorama Harvest Festival Queen Contest Tel.
