Professor Klein leaves the college "very reluctantly." He expects he will miss B a r n a r d ' s "superior student body." but anticipated having more time to devote to writing and less to teaching. In particular he expects! to spend less energy in grading papers, which at Barnard has occupied over half of his time. Among the "greater benefits" of the state university at Buffalo, Professor Klein includes the opportunity to "shape his courses more particularly," the extra time to do graduate work and to write, the superb English department at Buffalo, and greater op- porfonity for personal growth. He is "very enthusiastic" about the expansion now underway at Buffalo.

Jr. Show Chairman Seeks Original Student Scripts Potential scripts written by Barnard students are the crying need for next year's Junior Show, Director and Chairman Susan Foster '67 reports. Miss Foster explain that she has Susan Foster received about a half-dozen scripts so far, but only one by a Barnard student. She says that she is "looking desperately for other scripts written by Barnard girls. This is a Barnard show." Interested students can submit a scenario and one scene to' Miss Foster in '616' anytime during the next two weeks. The ac- tual scripts can be written during the summer as«-the final decision on which to use will not' be made until next fall. Miss Foster explains that the present screening is to give the Junior Show committee an idea of what is .available and a chance to "weed out obvious impos- sibles." She would also like anybody interested in the production staff to contact her, especially anyone interested in lighting, costume or set design. It has also been suggested that Junior Show might be a review. If this decision is made, Miss Foster and her committee would want a number of students to write 10-rmnute sketches. Any Barnard girls who do not feel that they can handle a full script but who would like to write a sketch should either submit one to Miss Foster or give her their name and something they have written which uses dialogue.
