Dana Andrews is scheduled for "The Glass Menagerie." * * * These celebrated Stars were looking fprward to a season of hard work, under difficult staging conditions with the eagerness ,qf children preparing for a picnic. It's this enthusiasm for then- chosen profession that makes big-timers GREAT! These Stars are truly great because they con- tinually'polish their talents and always keep a feather-edge on their skills.
