re upon a mattresJSi twist *??1WJ!! nee upon a March evening the kingdom called Department of Communications and Theatre joined forces with another kingdom called Department of Music to stage a musical tale with an adult twist called Once upon a Mattress. The play is a loose retelling of the fairy tale story of the Princess and the Pea. I Originally written for Carol Burnett, the show was performed on Broadway in 1959 and then again in 1997 with Sarah Jessica Parker in the lead role. Once upon a Mattress tells of a faraway kingdom where no one can wed until the prince finds himself a bride. All the citizens had learned to cope with this circumstance except one of the e]ueen ' s knights, an expec- tant father who needs to hurry things along. Directed by Dr. David Ruebhausen, the play ' s company had more than 60 members including cast, crew and orchestra. Cast members put in long hours on the play beginning in January, practicing during class and every weeknight from 7 to 11, and were excited about the results of their work. According to the students, Ruebhausen was not the only faculty member dedicated to the hard work that comes with a musical. " The dance choreographer, Angela Green, did a fabulous job, " said cast member Daryl Crittenden. " Not everyone had the same dance experience, and she did a fantastic job of bringing everyone up to the same level. " Assistant Professor of Music Tom Ed Moore was musical director. " Dr. Moore did a wonderful job of coach- ing us through, " Crittenden said, " and we had a good, rich sound. " Ouce upon a Mattress held the stage from March 13-16 at Norton Auditorium.

/liiivici^. Aces, ^cxnaL l^cccU Veronica ' s ^om has it all WILD EMOTIONS. Sa rah Rhode s^ Daryl Crittenden, Chris Bedwell - Oh, wow! What a twisted tale, eerie and suspense- ful, believable actors, all the makings of a good horror film but performed on stage. Scott Long ' s production of Ira Levin ' s Veronica ' s Room was superb, but I have to admit I had my doubts at first. At the end of the first act, I thought that I was going to be greatly disappointed: the acting seemed off, the dia- logue didn ' t seem to fit, and the actors didn ' t seem to suit their characters. However, my overly crit- ical opinions changed with the ' Twilight Zone ' twist for which Levin is so well- known. Levin, author of the clas- sic horror novel Rosemary ' s Baby, creates an ever-twisting web in Veronica ' s Room. Set in 1973 (or is it?) with only four actors, the plot unfolds in the confines of one room where an elderly couple bring a young man and woman to view a bedroom belonging to the deceased Veronica, whom the young woman uncannily resembles. The couple asks the young woman to dress in Veronica ' s clothes so that Veronica ' s dying sister might see her one last time. Once the young woman agrees, a nightmare begins. My opinion of the play changed immediately once the young woman, played by Sarah Rhodes, agrees to dress as Veronica. The sketchiness of Rhodes, Daryl Crittei " iden, Chris Bedwell and Jackie Huffmans ' s acting made sense. Their abilities to con- vey such sudden, drastic character changes blew me away as the lights dimmed at the close of the final act. I again applaud Long for the superb directing of Levin ' s work and the actors for performing it. — Ben Rock I

Kathleen Frazier, an Early Scholar Program student, is like any other young woman working her way through college. However, Kathleen does not have a typical job. Since the summer of 2001, she has been working at Rocky Top Holstein dairy farm in Ethridge, Term. " My family is not particularly [ happy about it. My mom would rather me work somewhere that is more feminine, as a check-out girl or at a florist shop, " Kathleen says. " My Dad is just afraid that I will get hurt. " Kathleen admits that the work was a new experience at first, but after just two days of training, she was milking cows, one of her many responsibilities. " Two of us milk the cows, since I it makes it easier and faster. We have automatic machines, so you just I spray their udders with iodine, wipe it off with a rag, hook them up to the machine, and the automatic retrieval I system takes it off when it is done. " Along with milking, Kathleen helps administer vaccinations, birth calves, dehorn cows, bed their hay, and feed them. The dehorning did not sound particularly appealing, but Kathleen differs. " It ' s great. We just herd the cows into a chute and put their head into the headlock. I give the cows antibiotic shots while they run through. Robert, my boss, stands out- side the headlock to do the big cows because I do not have enough 1 strength to handle the tool. Robert uses a device to cut off their horns, but it doesn ' t hurt them since they don ' t have any nerves in their horns. I It does bleed a lot, and by the time we are finished, our clothes, hair and face are drenched in blood. " And yet, do her friends think this is a cool job? " Oh, yes. I Everybody at school thinks it is cool. and a lot of them want to work there, I until they actually experience it. " And though she has worked with the cows five days a week, she does not get attached to them. In fact, she is a big steak-eater and so does not make any of the cows pets, since Rocky Top sometimes slaughters ani- mals for meat. Although her job at the dairy farm is hard work, Kathleen does not mind, especially considering the pay. Unlike some of her peers who make minimum wage, Kathleen makes $10 an hour and $50 a milking session, which can last from three to four hours. On graduating from high school in the spring, Kathleen was hoping to go to Ole Miss, where she had already applied and been accepted. Will her major include anything to do with animals? " Oh no, " Kathleen laughs, " 1 haven ' t decided on a major. It changes with each school that I consider . " — Emily Godwin MOOOOOO. As Kathleen Frazier gives her a little pat, cow number 469 gives a shout out to the camera.
