In an adjoining column is a com-
munication from Prof. Felix W. Paw-
lowski, of the Engineering depart-
ment., which contains a number of
statements needing qualifications.
In his paragraph 6, Professor Paw-
lowski finds three reasons why a con-
vention of students, gathered in War-
saw, Poland, last summer do not want
American help: (a) it is against the
sense of dignity and national pride
of the students to beg in foreign
countries; (b) it is the duty of the
respective governments to take care
of their own needy students; and, (c)
inasmuch as most of the so collected
money goes to Germany and to Rus-
sia, "suspicion arises as to some par-
tialism or favoritism to say the least."
With regard to Professor Pawlow-I
ski's reason (a), it need only be said
that Poland managed to swallow her
nationial pride during the last several
years to the extent of receiving for
her own rtudents several hundred
thousand dollars from the Friendship
Fund. Concerning (b), the fact re-
mains that when the Polish students
were in distress, the Polish govern-
ment failed to help them. And with
regard to (c), Professor Pawlowski is
apparently unaware that for every
dollar of money solicited in the United
State by the Friendship Fund and
spent in Germany, three dollars of its
money has been spent in Poland-
which hardly point to a pro-German
In his paragraph 7, Professor Paw-
lowski rays that there are Russan;
refugee students all over Europe who
are in a pitiable condition; but he has
erroneously stated that these students,
receive little help from the Frieno-
ship Fund. As a matter of fact, the1

Teddy Webb, whose hilarity was based
chiefly on a side view of his stomach
and the pronunciation of the word
"suspicious." At times he was funny,
but the times were not too frequent.
Schubert was adequately played and

Kelly did well with the part of Baron
Franz Schobert, strange as that my
sound. The three cronies, Vogel, Ku-
pelweiser, and Von Schwind, spend the
evening singing and slapping each
other upon the back. They did both
quite well. Gertrude Lang's Mitzi was
appealing. She decidedly has a voice.
The remainder of the cast was also far
above the average road company
The plot of the piece, which so the
program says, was taken from the life
of Schubert, was a rather wierd mix-
ture of fact and fancy. The authors
started off headed straight for the
tragic end of lost love because a shy
lover was afraid to tell the girl of his
passion. So he asked a friend to sing
it to her for him and she fell for the
friend. But toward the middle of the
third act the box office began to weigh.
upon the conscience of the writers.
So they decided to compromise. The
result was that while Schubert sat
dying of a broken heart in the middle
of the stage, the surrounding ensem-
ble tore off a scintallating finale, full
of the proverbial pep. Somehow it
didn't seem at all right.
The compositions of a famous mn-
sician. made a worthwhile evening out
of what might have been a very dull
one. To quote a noted humorist, for
those who like that sort of thing, it's
the sort of thing they like.

A review, by Lydia Kahn.
There is a platitude that runs in
this wise: "Why should we take it
upon ourselves to try and reform oth-
ers, when we need redemption our-
selves? When most of us, after all,
are only too human . . ." But it is a
dramatic, effective dogma, and two
plays during the last month hav
bluntly dealt with its truth, even if
with different virtues.
Both took for their theme the ex-
periment of a minister, 'and both
painted ministers as grossly human
creatures. That, however, is as far
as one can carry the comparison.
Wheres "Simon Called Peter" is a
sensual melodrama appealing to the

and his native wife. A girl, obvious-
ly of the streets, is also stranded with
them, and while they are there the
minister takes it upon himself to re-
form the girl. From a brave, vivid
creature she is changed ito a scared
broken woman. Conversely, as soon
as he has apparently moulded her
into a "reformed character," he shat-
ters all her ideals by proving to be

all over the world assembled in War-
saw was in substance that the sti-
dents' organizations should not ask
financial aid of foreign countries, andj
particularly of the rather over-ex-
ploited territory of America, and the
following reasons were given in sup-
port of this contention: (a) It is
against the sense of dignity and na-
tional pride of the students to beg
in foreign countries for money to help
their needy fellows; (b) It is the duty
of the respective countries or their
governments to take care of their own
needy students or citizens in general
and that the students organizations in
various countries should work in this
direction; (c) Inasmuinch as most of
the so collected money goes to Cer-
many and to Russia, suspicionI arises
as to some paritalismn or favoritism to
say the least.
7. The most, if not the only, needy l
students in Europe at the present time
are the Russian refugee students,
spread all over Europe (and I ]wr-
sonally quite agree with this o pinion)
as they, being in foreign lands and
not having the hacking of their own
country or society, are in m uch worse
position than any other students in
the world. Neverthel ers, as I under-
stand, they share very little of the yI
Student Friendship Fund. About aG
year ago, Professor lomshakoff of
the Engineering School in Prague,
Czechoslovalka. a Russian refugee
himself, was in this country on busu-
ness for the Skoda works in lilsn.
Being also the president of the Fed-
eration of the Russian Refugee Organ-
izations of students and professors, he
tried to collect funds in this country'
for his needy countrymen outside Rus-
sia; he visited also our campus, but
strangely his attenipt was entirely ummi-

Henry gave a portrait more unre-
strained than Arnold Korpf but often
more vivid and dramatic. Technically
at. least, the performance was admir-
able: diction, gesture, the constant
shading of the voice, all the points
that are called correct. He is highly
talented actor--the phrases sound so
trite--he is an artist, then, with a
wealth of resources to carry him
fhrou.gh the impossibilities of a Pi-
irandello monologue.
Carl Reid as the Baron Tito gave
as vivid a characterization, a distorted
interpretation, almost a caricature,
but aptly in keeping with the wierd
novelty of the situations. He was a
villain in clown-white expressionistic,
and fully the most convincing actor in
the cast.
Finally the settings, costumes, and
lighting were beautifully, exactly es-
ecited: here is where the real su-
periority to the. New York production
entered. Their strange simplicity was
sonmcthing of a triumph; occasionally
when dyes and muslin combine ac-
curately t he effect is electric.
And in the end, one returns to the
beginning: "henry IV" is a very
great play, a closet drana, and because j
of its constant subtlety a very bad
play, almost Ft very bad play.
