The paly concerns a Japanese nobleman who is killed, and his wife raped, in an encounter with a notorious bandit by the Rashomon Gate in a wood near Kyoto about a thousand years ago. Each of the three principals in the encounter testifies in a police court and presumably they all testify under oath. All three versions are all at sharp variance. Each of them gives an account that obviously is colored by his own passions. Obviously truth, which we are inclined to regard as something simple, absolute and inviolable, is nothing of the sort; in practical application it is complex, relative and cxtreamelv hard to come by. Cast for the play includes: Priest, Richard Thompson; Woodcutter, Eric Moon; Wigmaker, Andrew Zane; Deputy, Robert Iiritt; Bandit, Jack Herst; Husband, Ted Tcdesco; Wife, Joyce F.ldredge; Mother, Judy Rowland; A new and much shorter Peace Corps Placement 'Test will be administered for the first time Saturday, April 27, in more than 800 communities across the nation. The new lest, to be given on an experimental basic, consists of half-hour sections on general aptitude and modern language aptitude. All applicants who have any knowledge of French or Spanish must remain to take the appropriate language achievement test of one hour's duration. By contrast, the former examination was from four to eight hours, depending on optional sections. Both tests arenon-competitive. Applicants who took the longer test do not need to take the new one. Dr. Edward R. Henry, director of the Peace Corps' selection division, said the new test has been designed on the basis of information gained after two years of experience with the longer examination."Some tests in the former battery have been found to be of low validity in relation to the success of Volunteers in training and overseas. Other sections were more useful for proper class placement in training than they were for selection," Dr. Henry said. He added that college transcripts provide much of the information obtained from seceions of the former test and that the Peace Corps now requires transcripts from every candidate. Increasing emphasis on aptitude for a foreign language for all volunteers serving where English is not the main tongue has greatly increased the need for the language aptitude and achievement tests, Dr. Henry said. The new test will be given at 8:30 a.m. and should be taken by all new Peace Corps applicants for one of the 4,000 openings in 44 countries. Training begins in June, July and August. To be eligible to take the exam, candidates must either have submitted a questionnaire to the Peace Corps or must bring a completed questionnaire to the test site with them. Questionnaires and the location of the exam site may be obtained from the campus Peace Corps liasion officer.

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
