King Richard the Second
A REVIEW BY PROF. O. J. CAMPBELL.
The Stratford Festival Company's performance of "Richard II" on
Tuesday evening at the Wilson Theatre in Detroit was, first of all, a
personal triumph for the actor George Hayes, who played the title role.
In writing this play Shakespeare apparently indulged his personal artis-
tic interests. Out of the naive narrative conventions of the Chronicle
History he has evoked one of the most subtly conceived of all his
characters. Richard is the victim of his artistic temperament. When
he should be King, he persists in being either an actor or a lyrical poet.
In every one of his scenes he steals the center of the stage and holds
it. Let him but find his role and he will play it to his own satisfaction
and to the amazement of his audience. When Bolingbroke appear.,
before Flint Castle in which the King is immured, Richard appears to
ask
What must the King do now? Must he submit?
The King shall do it.
And forthwith he makes himself the hero of a sentimental drama ,of
j humility and distress. When he gives up the crown, he fixe: t i oge

E CENTLY, on the Halsey, Stuart
& Co. radio program, the Old
Counsellor answered a question from a
young man just out of college, wonder-
ing whether he should enter the bond
business-whether he was fitted for it
and what opportunities it presented.
T[his same question may be perplexing
many men now in college-freshmen
as well as seniors-who are thinking
seriously of their future. The Old
Counsellor's talk has been reprinted
under the title, The Bond Business-Its
Scope and Requirements. A copy will be
supplied to any college student who
would like to read it.
This talk is typical of those-which
have been given on the Halsey, Stuart
&z Co. program in the past year and a
half. Tliey cover a wide field. 'Alnost

every investor has been confronted with
some of the problems discussed. Invest-
ment Trusts, Convertible Bonds, Bid
and Asked Prices,the Meaning and Im-
portance of Call Features-these are
some of the more technical subjects
which have been treated in the Old
Counsellor's interesting and under-
standable way.
These programs may help you decide
whether you wish to enter the invest-
ment field upon graduation and will be
valuable preparation, if you do. Or, if
you are training for business or the pro-
fessions, these weekly talks will prove
helpful when you later take up the
handling of your funds or those en-
trusted to you. It will pay you to listen
to the Halsey, Stuart & Co. radio pro-
gram, every Thursday evening.
