By THOMAS SEGALL
When is delightful nonsense not
delightful nonsense? When it is
a bore. The small audience which
gathered in Auditorium C of An-
gell Hall last night was treated to
"An Evening of 'Bad Poetry" by
the P.A.P. (Packard Avenue Play-
There is some doubt, however, as
to whether or not these initials
were chosen because reading
through the periods gives you the
word "pap." It was pap with a
vengeance: bland, yes-but easily
digestible, no. They invoked aid
from their very blank verse: "Sa-
liva, chyle, bile." This was not
enough to save the audience from
Not only was the evening short
on rhyme; it was distinctly lack-
ing in reason. The humor was
puerile and tiresome. The same
simple technique, that of bathos,
was used over and over. Take, for
example, selections from the "Pis-
catory Eclogues" of William Dyap-
er (or is it really spelled Dia-
per?). A touching description of
child care among the sea cows was
interrupted for a licking of
"smooth ringlets with scurvy
tongue." Big comedown. But there
was no reason to it. The image
and the connotations of the word
"scurvy" bore no relation to any-
thing else in the poem. The3
merely appealed to an adolesceni
preoccupation with sex. No sense,
ing this long hour which were
genuinely pleasing. One was a flur-
ry of short verse which included
the following: "Upon your breast/
I lay my weary head,/Softer than
eiderdown." Something as simple
as a dangled participle was snap-
ped up by this starved audience.
The other was a parody of Ar-
thur Miller's "Death of a Sales-
man." It was difficult to tell what
was original in this evening and
what was not, since no programs
were given out. Surely the P.A.P.
Tcould not have imagined that we
could forget this great opus, which
was last printed in the 1957 an-
nual edition of "More Trash from
Mad Magazine," under the title
"Death to a Salesman."
Now that the opinion has been
given, what ab'out the criteria? The
Packard Avenue Playreaders an-
nounced that they wished to re-
main anonymous. That wish will
be honored. It is likely that many
were graduate students, presum-
ably in English. One, at least, was
a full professor.
Is it too outrageous to expect
that when a scholarly mind turns
to humorous diversion, the humor
will be commensurate with his aca-
demic ability, and not lifted from
Mad Magazine? The evening's pre-
tenses were academic to be sure
-the five playreaders wore aca-
demic gowns and mortarboards.
One was a doctoral robe from Har-
vard. Unfortunately, they fell flat
on their facade.
