FOUNTAINS AND SCULPTORS - Charles Hohman, star of
"Howie," admires the League fountain, which he described as
"bulky an dvery confined. I like it very much." Hohman, who also

There must be a balance be-
tween the comedy approach and
the sincere building of a character,
he explained. But in doing this,
one element is not sacrificed at
the expense of another; the actor
builds one value upon another,
creating a series of climaxes which,
in turn, lead to one grand climax.
Although "Sergeants" is basi-
cally a two dimensional play, it is
approached in the same way, he
said. Will, for example, can't pos-
sibly realize he's funny when he
says something; he simply doesn't
see the humor in it . .. He must
be presented sincerely to make
this clear.

Hohman toured for eight months
with "No Time for Sergeants,"
playing in 196 cities.
Describes Audiences
"I don't believe there's any such
thing as 'different audiences,' they
are basically the same all over.
Sergeants was a great show for
kids-they really liked it," he com-
Noting an incident of the tour,
where a Negro actor was removed
from the cast because of the segre-
gation problem in the South, Hoh-
man recalled an earlier incident.
An agent called a Southern hotel
to make reservations fors a group
of .Scottish dancers, and was told
that adequate space would be
"When he gave the desk clerk
the group's name - the 'Black
Watch,' he was told, I'm sorry, but
we have to maintain segregation
down here!' " Hohman said.
Likes To Scupit
He is also a sculptor as well as
an actor. "A friend of mine has a
studio up in Connectii.t, and I
often go up there to work," he
said. "But it's only a hobby. I
make my living in the theatre."
Hohman. recently returned from
the Puerto Rican Drama Festival,
where he played Will Stockdale
once again, and co-starred with
Kim Hunter in "The Dark at the
Top of the Stairs."


a rational and enlightened under-!
standing of the meaning of his
presence here."
The committee suggested en-
couragement and help from coun-
selors "so that each interested stu-
dent may gain an understanding
of the nature and purpose of a
liberal education and within the
context of this understanding de-
velop timely, realistic plans for an
educational and vocational objec-
tive in keeping with his-interests
and abilities."
The committee added the coun-
selor's proper concern is the stu-
dent's "whole educational experi-
ence, not merely his concentration
program . .. the counselor is not
solely a representative of his de-
partment: he is also 'a representa-
tive of his college."
The committee stressed the
counselor should come from the
faculty, and rejected the use of
"professionally trained non-faculty
Understand Issues
Non - faculty counselors "would
be counseling without the under-
standing of educational issues that
comes in part from regular class-
room teaching . . . the students
need opportunities to talk over the
general questions of education
with men who are dedicated to
the intellectual life and who can'
speak of scholarly ideals . . . in
terms of their own experience."
Counseling brings important
benefits to faculty members taking
part, the report continued, since
they have an "unequalled oppor-
tunity to learn something of the
student's life outside the class-
Extention of Duties
Since counseling should be re-
garded as an extension of the fac-
ulty's teaching responsibility, it
should be rewarded in the same
way good teaching is rewarded: by
merit increases end promotions,
the committee said.
Faculty .counselors should re-
ceive some released time from
their teaching duties, the com-
mittee held. Counselors with about
100 students would be released
from about one - third of their
teaching time, under the proposed

"Man is the source of all author-
ity and need not rely on any
supernatural power," George E.
Axtelle, president of the American
Humanists Association remarked.
"Nothing less than the best,
fullest and richest experience is
good enough for man and he is
committed to find this," he added.
These are the two articles of
faith agreed upon by Humanists,
Axtelle emphasized recently in a
lecture on "The Program of Scien-
tific Humanism."
Expose Problems
Organized Humanists attempt to
discover and expose problems in
everyday life pertaining to Hu-
manism and to provide the know-
how to solve these problems by
developing intellectual and moral
leadership among the members, he
He noted one of the problems of
concern to Humanists is the fail-
ure of many high schools and
colleges to teach evolution.
Humanism is closely related to
Unitarianism, Axtelle explained,
but the "humanists have aban-
doned the theistic framework of
a church and maintained a fellow-
Need Intellectual'
Axtelle also commented. that
Humanism needs the intellectual
person who is not the organization
man so that he might contribute
to the betterment of mankind
through his knowledge. It also
needs an organization man to weld
the association together, he said.
Summing up the beliefs of the
Humanists, Axtelle said, "nature
