College To View T 'Turn of Screw' From cellar to attic, The Turn of the Screw is ghostly. All the weird colors of this nightmare will be present in the College Theater March 2 at 8:15 p.m. when Ben jamin Britten's opera version of the Henry James short story will be enacted. The SAC-sponsored production will be the troupe's sole performance in Chicago. Playing the lead as governess is Miss Patricia Neway, winner of Patricia Neway the Critic's Circle and Donaldson awards for her role in Gian-Carlo Menotti's opera, The Consul and the Tony award for her creation of Mother Abbess in The Sound of Music. Richard Cassilly playing the ghost Quint has sung over 28 lead ing operatic roles in the United States and Canada ranging from Florestan in Fidelo to Don Jose in Carmen. Chilling ambiguity is at the core of the subtle James story. A young governess arrives at Bly, a country house, to care for two children, Miles and Flora. She finds they are haunted by Miss Jessel and Peter Quint, two former employees of the household. Caught under the influence of evil and the frus tration of the unsuspecting gover ness, the children begin to experi ence guilt feelings. The governess determines to leave Bly, but stays to confront the spirits for the sake of the children. The Turn of the Screw climaxes in the governess' struggle which has been open to interpretation since the tale's writing in 1898. Tickets for the performance are 3.50, 2.75 and 2 and can be pur chased at the College box office.

Award Medal To CFM Head Mrs. Patrick F. Crowley of Wil- mette, 111., has recently been chosen the recipient of Mundelein's 1963 Magnificat Medal. The presenta tion will be made March 19 at 1 p.m. by his Eminence Albert Car dinal Meyer. A native Chicagoan, Mrs. Crow ley graduated from Trinity College in 1936, studied at the Sorbonne in Paris fcr a year and was married in 1937. She has five children, the oldest of whom is a Benedictine, Sister Mary Patrick, currently studying at Mundelein. In addition to her own children, a dozen foster children and 18 for eign students have lived with the Crowleys over the years. Two of these students, Claudette Austin and Gladys Paul, are students at the College now. In 1943, the Crowleys, with other young couples, began meeting to discuss ways of bringing Christ's life and truth more effectively into daily and professional life. They first channelled their energies into the Cana Conferences. By 1949, the number of couples was growing rapidly so under the Crowley's guidance a new organization, the Christian Family Movement, was founded. President Cites Tuition Increase In September A tuition hike raising the semes ter total to 400 was recently an nounced by Sister Mary Ann Ida, B.V.M., as she gave reasons for the substantial increase. RECALLING LAST YEAR'S slight raise, the president noted the necessity for this action. Allow ing the students a 'breather' from a costly tuition increase last year has necessitated a larger raise for the coming school year, she ex plained. Sister emphasized, however, that the 800 per year will still cover activity expenses for the students. The president added the fact that faculty and staff budgets in crease approximately 10 to 20 per cent annually, which was important in determining the increase. DESPITE THIS RAISE, she pointed out, it is still possible for students to finance their own edu cation. Through part-time work ob tained through the Placement Bu reau, NDEA loans, Illinois State Scholarships, grants made possible by gifts from benefactors as well as student employment girls may still earn a major portion of their expenses. It is valuable to note, Sister added, the differences in present tuition between Mundelein and neighboring colleges and universi ties. Comparable to this year's total of 690, tuitions, exclusive of fees, amounting to 1,200, 910, 793 and 700 may be attributed to such colleges and universities as Northwestern, Loyola, DePaul and St. Xavier, respectively. BECAUSE THE SISTER faculty and administrators serve without a salary, Mundelein is able to keep its charges to the present amount. This contribution of services equals an annual gift of about 300 to each girl eluded. in school, Sister con- SPECIAL FEATURES Edwin O'Connor In'.ei view p. 2 'Carnival' Review p. 2 Physical Fitness p. 2 Dean's List p. 3 YR Award p. 3 Terrapin Show p. 4 The New Skyscrapings p. 4 Zimmerer Investigates City's Economic Future Paul N.
