Zack and Morgan Streets The play is taken from the popular "Claudia and David" stories running in the Redbook Magazine, and is under the direction of S/Sgt. Maurice Geoffrey, of Headquarters, Third Air Force, former professional director and producer. The story is based on the turning point in Claudia's life, when she can no longer remain the child-wife of David, but, instead, must realize her responsibilities as a woman. The three acts are filled with laughs and dramatic situations and, needless to say, the curtain falls on the proverbial happy ending. "Claudia''. should prove ideal play for a soldier-audience. This will be the first appearance of the Little Theatre at Drew Field, and if sufficient in tere.st is shown, other plays will follow, according to Curtis R. Hinkley, president ?f the group, and Sgt. Geoffrey, d1rector. The complete cast, including several former Broadway players, will be announced next week. Radio Schedule want.)

Close your eyes and as you lean back in that easy chair in the day room, imagine you are at Recreation Building No. 1 (on K and 1st Street) and about to witness another of Drew Field's broadcasts .... When Lt. George W. Kluge steps on stage and tells you, "We are about to go on the air ," the actual production of a program is really not that simple. An enormous amount of detailed work goes into the preparation of the broadcast and it is only after the groundwork is laid and planned that it is molded into the finished product. As an example, let us take our weekly Thursday night program: "Rookie Roy and His New Musical Scrapbook (WDAE, 99:30 p m.). First and of primary importance, the story line and comedy elements of the program are established, and after that has been developed to its fullest ext ent, the program's musical elements are fused and then the high spots are inserted. Subsequently the body of the program in its entirety is completed. Thus the program is seemingly complete, but in reality we are taking the first of what will prove to be many steps .... Conferences with the director of the music are held,. and upon the selection of the music chosen to be used, rehearsals 'among the cast and musicians follow. Once this much has been achieved, the program is almost ready for presentation, but additional rehearsals are held before taking to the air. This to assure a completely satisfactory and well rounded program. And then, perhaps after the third or fourth rehearsal of the night of the broadcast, Lt. Kluge steps on stage to the capacity house: "We are about to go on the air." ''SLIP -EEZ" tO"""' To Wear Under the Shower iC To Prevent Athlete's.
