       Jonathan Glickman G3 (Bill) deserves ap-
    plause: He sang wondrously, acted com-
    pellingly, and was the one player in the
    show to develop his part as a full flesh-
    and-blood character, loving, longing, in
    desperation, in romance. Glickman's solo
    number - "Think how it's Gonna Be"
    was done with captivating lyricism, his last
    piece - also the finale of the show -
    "Something Greater' won over the hearts
    of not only Margo - whom he had been
    trying to capture all along - but of the
    audience as well.
       Maryann Pasciuto did well too, showing
    Eve develop from early (supposed) naivete
    to fully-fledged diva status. Her haughty
    behavior during the latter phase seemed to
    spring naturally from her newly star-
    struck status, but also reach back to her
    past. The strong, clean lines of "One
    Hallowe'en" propelled the song along.

    placed by Eve. She did build up her part,

     Golf team -to
     open season
            by Jerome Braunstein
         The'varsity golf team opens its
      season today with a match
      against Division I Northeastern
     and Division II Merrimack.
         Coach John G. Barry was un-
     able to make any predictions for
     this season because three of the
     seven varsity players graduated,
     last year. The openings will be
     filled by junior varsity players
     and incoming freshmen.
         Alexander A. Romeo '86 will
     captain the Division III team this
     year, and Christopher F. DeBlois
     '87 will manage.
        Eric D. Asel '87 led the team
     last season to a record of 15
     wins, two losses and one tie.
     Asel, described as "high caliber'
     by Barry, has competed in both
    the National Collegiate Athletic
    Association Division III finals
    and the Eastern Collegiate Ath-
    letic Conference finals in the past
    two years. He also won the
    Greater Boston Tournament last
       Barry said that he's depending
    on Asel, last year's most valuable
    player, to be the key player once      i
    again.                                 i
