Night radio programs will be given

talk tonight speaking on Schubert
and his music, giving special at-
tention to the selections being of-
fered on the program.
Theater Is Offered
ATo Amateur Authors
Amateur playwrights on the
campus are at last to be provided
with an audience and a place in
which to experiment with their
dramatic offerings. Prof. L. J.
Carr, of the sociology department,
has opened up in the basement of
his home a little theater which he
states he will devote to experimen-
tation in dramatic art and to any
short plays written by amateurs.
Professor Carr's theater has a
stage about 12 feet across and
twenty feet deep; it is eight feet
high. tI is equipped with draw
curtains and lights, and now has a
set capable- of being shifted into
many different arrangements. The
set was built by Fed Rebman, car-
pented for Mimes, and it can be
arranged for inside or outside
scenes. He has also supplied the
theater with red and black cush-
ioned folding chairs, so that an au-
dience of 22 people can be accom-
modated for any showing.
Professor Carr's interest in dra-
rnatics began with his association
with the Dodo group of amateurs
interested in dramatics. This or-
ganization came into bankruptcy
in 1926, and since then there has
been little encouragement of camp-

us playwrights.
Professor Carr wishes to start'
such an organization again, and'
has incorporated his "little thea-
ter" into the architecture of his
home. Any who have written short
plays or wish to write some and
have a showing of them is request-
ed to get in touch with Professor
Carr in the Economics building or
at his home address, which is R.
F. D. No. 1. Any type of short play
that will conform to his facilities
will be welcomed by him.

Effinger Describes
Trip Through Italy
Dean- Of Literary College Talks
Before II Circolo Italiano;k
Tells Of Mussolini
"Mr. Mussolini doesn't believe in
giving things away," said Dean
John R. Effinger of the literary
college in a speech yesterday, to
members of Il Circolo Itallano. "He
believes that foreigners who come
to Italy ought to pay for the privil-
ege of enjoying her museums and
works of art. In consequence, the
prices of admission to galleries is
much higher than pit was under
the old regime.
"But there is a way to beat the
game," Dean Effinger continued.
"By certifying that he s an Amer-
ican student there for purposes of
studying one can, upon payment
of a few lira, obtain a pass which
will admit him to all national
museums and to many municipal
During the course of his remarks,
Dean Effinger recounted various
incidents of his trip through Italy
last spring, and presented his im-
pressions of the land, under the
government of Mussolini.d h
Under this regime, he said, the
efficiency of Italian life has been
increased greatly so that people
work more and beg less, and trains
are gradually coming to run on
schedule. But he expressed some
doubt as to whether things would
continue in their present state aft-
er Mussolini's death.
"The traditional Naples of dirt
and beggars has changed to a city
of beautiful boulevards fronting the
Bay, of prosperous citizens, and of
substantial buildings," he said..
"Venice on a Festival day pre-
sents decorations scarcely com-
prehensible to Americans who have
never seen them," Dean Effinger
averred. "The houses are covered
with satins and silks and tapes-
tries hundreds of years old. Gon-
dolas painted golden red, or pink,
or silver and blue are manned by
gondoliers in liveries of corres-
ponding hue. There is a perfect
riot of color.
"But when you go to Italy," he
concluded, "never speak of Mr.
Mussolini. If you want to keep,
out of trouble and embarassing
situations, remember that Mus-

"We want more than tolerance,"
asserted Lewis Browne, interna-
tionally recognized author, histor-
ian, and lecturer, speaking of "The
Strangest Story," in his third ap-
pearance here under the auspices
of the Hillel foundation, before a
crowd of more than five hundred
people who crowded into every seat
and every bit of standing room last
night in Natural Science auditor-
ium. "Tolerance is merely conde-
scension," he continued, "and
what we want is comradeship. Let
u§ alone to do our own work in
our own way,das long as we please
and we will be glad to let you do
your work in your way.
"We are the only people in the
world who have lived so long un-
der such circumstances. Certainly,
we add color to life and society;
our spirit is a part of society, a
part of us; let us give our whole
psychic makeup to the world. We,
who have lived the Strangest Story
in all history-certainly we have
something to contribute. All we
ask is, let us alone.
"Some people have claimed that
the secret of the miraculous exis-
tence of the Jews is constant per-
secution. That may be true. Op-
pression has kept us alive, but un-
der it we have done nothing else
but breathe.
"Some have claimed that the Jew
can be recognized by his biological
features, but that is untrue.
"Religion is often credited with
the existence of this race but that
can not be true either since al-

most all of the outstanding Jews
of today do not openly or actively
profess their Judaism. There is
no such religion. There are Ju-
daisms, in the same way that there
is no real Christianity but rather
one might say there are Christian-
"Sometimes nationality is con-
sidered as the basis of their exist-
ence but again there is nothing to
sustain such claims since they al-
ways belong to the nation where
they live.
"They are distinctive in another
way. It is psychological, a some-
thing in their minds which has,
been bred there by thousands of
years of minority existence. It is
that certain madness which cen-
turies ago was given by those di-
vinely insane men called prophets.
They were told that their job was
to teach ideals of righteousness
and peace among men and that
they would suffer for it. The more,
they suffered, the more they were
to feel that they were fulfilling the
task for which they had been
chosen. This notion kept them'
alive through oppression. Oppres-
sion itself has made him show his
mental trait of intensity, of emo-
tional intensity and drive, that
force which has often carried him
to extremes. He can do anything
with this emotional drive as he
has shown in his passion for learn-,
ing, in 'his passion for success in,
the short time since the many bar-
riers of ancient superstition have
been lifted allowing him to take
part in all activities," he concluded.

The sophomores chose George
Ryerson, '31, last week to lead their
ohorts into #battle, and held as
ally last Monday in the Union to
nake plans for waylaying unwary
sreshmen tomorow, traditionally
mnown as Black Friday. The first-
year men are understood to have
some ammunition up their sleeves
'or the sophomores also.
Carl Brandt of the speech de-
partment delivered the fight talk
at the freshmen meeting last night
and Robrt F. Warren, '29, Student
ouncilman in charge of fall games,
explained the events, the rules of
he games, and the system of
awarding points.
There will be the customary
hree events: the pillow fight, cane
spree, and flag rush. For the pil-
[ow fights picked men from the two
classes oppose each other, perched
on the backs of tall saw horses.
When the signal is given they at-
tempt to bat each other off, using
pillows as ewapons. If both men
are on the horse and not touching
the ground at the end of five min-
utes, the match is a draw. The
side which has succeeded in bat-
ting the largest number of oppo-
nents off the horsese is awarded
one points.
In the cane spree, which is an-
other individual combat, members
of the oposing classes struggle for
possesion of a cane about four feet
long and as big around as an ax
handle. As soon as one of the con-
testants lets go of the cane with
both hands, the battle is over, but
if both men still have hold of the
cane at the end of five minutes,
the contest is judged a draw. To
the class with the most canes in
its possession when the final whis-
tle is blown one point is awarded.
The flag rush is a mob affair in
which all 'the representatives of
either classes ,are pitted agaist"
one another. The freshmen de-
fend three tall poles at the tops of
which flags are tied. The sopho-
mores rush the poles in flying-
wedge formation ,and attempt to
scale the pole and tear down the
flag. A point is awarded to the
sophomores for each flag captured,
and a point to the freshmen for
each flag successfully defended.
The class of '31, twice defeated
last year by the class of '30, has
yet to win a class game.
Council Reinstates
Medical Hop Member
At the regular meeting of the
Student council last night it was
voted to restore a representative of
the Medical school to the J-Hop
committee, in consideration of an
agreement reached recently be-
tween the Student council and the
Honor council of the Medical
school to cooperate in holding class
elections. The restoration will take
place immediately, and a Medical
representative will take- his place
on this year's committee.
For several years the Medical
school has refused to cooperate
with the council in holding
class elections, and the matter
came to head this year when the
council voted to remove their J-
Hop representative.
The agreement provides that the
Medical school will hold their class
elections during the week speci-
fied by the Student council, and
will be in charge of a Student
councilman and an Honor council-

can from the Medical school. The
assemblies will be arranged so as
