GuignoVs 'Cyrano deBergerac Begins Tonight 9 By IIAPPT CAW'OOD Opening curtain for Guignol Theater's largest production "Cyrano de Bergerac" rises at 8:30 tonight with favorable predictions. The play runs through Saturday. Including faculty members and seven townspeople in its cast of 42, the play is divided into five acts. Each act requires a different set. One of the four Kernel reviewers says the size of the cast is impressive. Also commended were methods of subdued lighting, arranged by Jim Read, and the realistic set decorations. Wallace M. Briggs, director, estimated its cost at $1,000. Portraying; Cyrano will be William F. Nave, with Melanie Frssler as Roxanne. "It's great to be playing a leading role beside a man so talented," Miss Fessler said. A strive for realism is evident in their efforts. A Lexington veterinarian, Dr. Robert Hcnsley, has been ;jA " 'C';t; h i instructing the fencing scene. Miss Fessler said they have been rehearsing every night, except Sundays, since Jan. 20. "There will be a great deal of ad Jibbing," David Dick, actor in the play, said when speaking of the large cast. He estimated each had a speaking role though some were primarily for street scenes. "When a play moves you even with the sets not completed and Cyrano without his boots that's a performance," wrote a reviewer. "Even in rehearsal the characters lost all present Identity. Through their speech and mannerisms they carry you to the 17th century France. They are actors." The costumes, representing fashions of 1640, were difficult to piece together, Dick stated. Costumes were made by Mrs. Lolo Robinson, associate director, and Betty St. Clair. Leading actor William Nave, UK graduate, presently '; l." IE.

Russia Repeats Stand OnEastGermanRoute WARSAW, March 3 (AP) The Soviet Union repeated today its ind tentions of making East Germany the guardian of the West's access route to Berlin. It also reiterated that if the West used tanks and planes to keep hold of Wet Berlin it would mean world war. In a note sent to the Polish ambassador in Moscow, the Kremlin also denounced the projected conference of Big Four foreign ministers, and said only a meeting of governments could lower tension. It offered to discuss a general peace treaty for all Germany at such a summit conference. ' The note wasdelivered just after Minister Harold British Prime Macmillan kit Moscow for home, and it teemed a deliberate slap at him. In a ncte to the Western Powers yesterday agreeing to the idea of a foreign ministers' conference, the Kremlin said it would prefer a summit cenference. The note to Poland asked how foreign ministers could accomplish anything if the chiefs of government were not ready to reach agreement. The note proposed this agenda for an East-WeSummit Conference: 1. A peace treaty with all Germany. 2. The status of Berlin. 3. European security and disaar-mameh- t. red-rule- st s and Kentuckian.
