delude his lt'ss meditative critics. The

butt with their jaws. When they speakI

no miore appreciate the devastating
iroic humoar that, like a critical eel,

they will detect the tragedy that un-
duliates beneath the surface of some~
such comedy as one of Schnitzler's
or Piranrdello.". ...This school of crit-
ics "elects to be oblivious to such
humorous undertones of tragedy and
to center its attention wholly upon
the grim misery that proceeds from
those undertones. It sees the death4
of 1-lamlet, ibut not Ilamlet's anteced-
emt skeptical humor before a world
ivhose jig-sa. v puzzlemnakers mock of
his efforts to solve it."
Whoever writes the drama columnt
for' "Time" has gathered a consider-j
able column of data on plays andI
1Ilayem's for the new season. HeI says
that sonmc three hundred plays have
been proposed for production betweent
now and next April and that perhaps
oneo hundred and fifty of these will
reach Manhattan.j
No one person has gotten much of
a look at this mass; but it will prob-
ably produce the usual percentage
of show-board comedy. However, at
this early moment it is simpler to
judge the chances by the plays which
prominent players choose to act in.
