We who are represented in this book have seen the world pass from war to peace and again to war. The relatively peaceful years of our lives thus far have been spent in college, a fact which makes the record of these years more valuable to us. Therefore, the Publications Staff presents Opus 1 1 in the hope that memories of these times will be recalled more vividly and more happily, whatever the years to come may hold.

Radio Station WAJC was installed on the third floor of the Administration Building. This station operates on a 750 watt transmitter and is an FM station. The facilities of this station are three broadcast studios, an announcer ' s booth and con- trol room with four turntables, Fairchild recording equipment, microphones, sound effects, tape recorder, and a music library. W ' AJC is programmed entirely by Butler and Jordan students. They broadcast daily from five until ten each evening. In charge of management and program operations is the Alpha Alpha chapter of Alpha Epsilon Rho, the national radio fraternity. By placement of this responsibilit) on the students, their preparation tor professional jobs after graduation will be greatly enhanced. Jordan ' s instructors are active in radio work at Indianapolis radio and television stations. The use of teachers who are employed in radio and television to instruct students, assures the highest type of professional training. Many of Jordan ' s radio graduates have assum.-d posit ' ons of responsibilit)- already. OPERA DEPARTMENT The Opera Department gave its first production on January .9th and 10th at the Odeon. They presented a musical satire called, " In the Name of Culture, " by Alberta Bimboni. This opera is a satire of women ' s clubs by having a meeting of the Self Culture Club with a program of enlightenment that bores the ladies. Various diversions appear such as amusing spats between the members and a bridge game where everyone talks at once. April 3rd and 4th the Opera Department presented a fantastic opera called " The Tales of Hoffmann " by Jacques Offenbach at the Athenaeum. This is a story of Hoffmann, a poet, who has been pursued through- out life by his evil genius, seeks temporary refuge from his melancholy thoughts by drinking with a group of students in a tavern in Nurenburg and by recounting to his companions the stories of his three unhappy love affairs. These were both very fine productions under the direction of Leola Turner, who is the Director of Jordan Opera. 53 DRAMA DEPARTMENT To provide the student with opportunity for pubhc appearance, the Drama Department ofters at least four major productions each year. Tryouts for these productions are open to the student body of Jordan with preference given to majors of the department. Each production also carries its own Stage Manager, Setting, Lighting, Costume, and Properties Chairman, all of whom are Students. In addition to these key positions on the production staffs, there is ample opportunity for students to work on the various crews of stage production. The department sponsors a dramatic fraternity, known as " Intermission " which is to recognize superior work of students in productions. This organization maintains its own student administrative panel and faculty advisors are Marguerite Carlson Adkins and James R. Phillippe. This year the department gave a comedy play, " Arsenic and Old Lace, " by Joseph Kesselring and a con- temporary drama by William Saroyan called " Beautiful People. " 54 " WHO ' LL PAY Tin; RLNT? " Don Kelly James Lewallen Wc would like to p.iy tribute to James C. Lewallen and Don R. Kclh ' who are the composers of the fine musical melodrama " Who ' ll Pay the Rent. " The music for this great production was written by James Lewallen and the libretto by Don Kelly. The story is about a girl named Nell, played by Patti Browne, who trys to sell novelties to pav the rent on her house to keep her mother and her two blind sisters. Harold, played by Joseph Cusanelli, promises to earn the money for Nell to pay the rent. Gene Oakes plays the part of Schuyler, the villain, who buys the mort- gage to the house and will only pay it on the condition that Nell become a burlesque queen in his show. Poor Nell has no alternative so she becomes a star in the burlesque show and ends up in jail. Harold finally earns enough money to pay the rent and comes to release Nell from the cruel Schuyler. Schuyler realizes how hard he has been on Nell and she finds herself at his mercy so Harold ends up with the chorus line from the burlesque show and the show ends with a most patriotic finale. A speaking chorus adapted from the Greeks was used to join the music and dialogue in order to give the audience a better understanding of the show. The chorus master was Don Kelly and the chorus consisted of: Marcia Kimber, Ruth Myers, Mary Quinnell, Milton Hehr, Joseph Kuyoth, William Waters, and Donald Vi ' oods. Miss Mary Sue McCarty acted as choreographer and those who participated in the ballet were: Mary Sue McCarty, Mary Cox, Jan Domojala and Charles Stoncr. Minor parts were played by Joseph licktman, Ed Hole- man, William Wandersee and Morgan O ' Dell. The show was pr(xluced by James R. Phillippc and Marguerite Carlson Adkins and the orchestra was con- ducted by James Lewallen. Settings and lighting were designed by Tom . ' dkins. jy DANCE The Dance Department of Jordan College of Music participated in one production of the school this year. They danced in the opera " The Tales of Hoffman " taking the part of chorus girls with partners, they danced the minuet. Jordan offers all types of dance including ballet, toe, character, modern, and eurhythmies. Miss Eileen Poston is the head of the Dance Department. 56 SNAPSHOTS 57 J8 59 61 62 ADS 6} INDIANA MUSIC CO. Wholesale and Retail Accordions, Band and Orchestral Instruments PAUL H.
