Last Act. And we are not disap-
pointed, for the poet does indeedj
lay bare his soul-promptly in theE
alloted time before the final cur-
tain. Psychological revelation has
always been a difficult effect in
the theatre, where time is lim-
ited and motives must be project-j
ed rather than introspected.
But "Ivory Tower" makes littlej
or no use of either realistic ges-
ture or surrealistic setting and
conversation. Thus, the character
is left to indicate his passions only
by the vehemence with which they
erupt. And so, the stage is filled

eruptions \which necessarily re-
mind one of Yellow Stone Park.
But if it is not a successful play
of emotion, neither is "Ivory
Tower" a profound play of ideas.
The values which the poet
(modeled obstensibly on Ezra
Pound) expresses are accepted
gratuitously. Nobility of purpose
alone is questioned. The authors
of "Ivory Tower" show us only an
anti-Americanism founded upon
the tortured experiences of their
poet's childhood. Men become
fascists, we are asked to accept,
merely out of an overwhelming
father-hatred.

Greek Government Charges
Treason Plot by Papandreou

ATHENS (MP-Andreas Papan-
dreou, U.S. trained politician-
economist son of a former pre-
mier, was charged yesterday with
conspiracy to commit high treason
by overthrowing the monarchy.
He was transferred in a closed
army van from a hotel in an
Athens suburb, where he had been
held since the army seized power
in Greece April 21, to Averoff
Prison in downtown Athens.
Under Greek law, Papandreou,
48, could be sentenced to life im-
prisonment if convicted. The new
military regime has indicated that
no death penalty- is contemplated.
U.S. diplomats have sought as-
surances that Papandreou would
not be executed.
Magistrate Socrates Socratides
ordered Papandreou arrested after
questioning him in connection
with a civilian investigation into
the alleged Aspida army conspi-
racy plot. Aspidk means shield.
The government charges leftist
army officers in Aspida plotted to
overthrow the monarchy, take
Greece out of the North Atlantic
Treaty Organization and set up
a Socialist state.
A three member judiciary com-
mittee must decide whether there
is enough evidence against Papan-
dreou to warrant a trial. The legal
procedure leading up to this could
take weeks.
Gen. Gregory Spantidakis, the
new deputy premier and defense
minister, asked in Paris about the
prisqner's fate, said,
"We are not a government of
executioners."

WASHINGTON (A)-A sweeping
reorganization that in effect takes
away the Office of Education's
power to cut off federal funds to
noncomplying school districts was
announced yesterday by Secretary
of Health, Education, and Welfare
John W. Gardner.
The new move, tailored to meet
demands from congress, calls for
centralization of all civil rights
enforcement personnel in the De-
partment of Health, Education
and Welfare into a unit directly
responsible to Gardner.
At a news conference, Gardner
made public an exchange of letters
with Rep. Daniel J. Flood (D-Pa),
chairman of a House Appropria-
tions subcommittee, outlining the
new consolidations.
Now the various agencies inside

the Welfare Department have the
power to cut off funds, after hear-
ing, toen force desegregation guide-
lines in schools and hospitals. The
new plan would affect 278 em-
ployes now working in the Office
of Education, the Public Health
Service, the Welfare Department
and various regional and central
offices.
Some civil rights spokesmen
have been sharply critical of what
they call the department's laxness
in enforcing desegregation guide-
lines in federally financed schools
and hospitals of the South.
On the other hand, Congress has
been critical of the Office of Edur
cation's cutting off of funds to
southern school districts and has
singled out Dr. Harold Howe, edu-
cation commissioner, for much of
the attack.
