'<<e sound pollcy of common
sense which has :marked Presidenvt
Alexander G. Ruthven 's firstc
speeches as head of the University 1
was again in evidence when he
spoke on University enitrance re-
quirements last Sa turday, in his
first radio broadcast speeh since!
his appointment to the presidency.
President Ruthven's two state-
mnents: first, that students who are
unfit to utilize the becnefit of a uni-
versity education should not be ad-
mitted to the University; and sec- j
ond, that tif such student slip
through the entrance bars they
should be painlessly removed from
the scene as soon as their defle-
iencies are discovered, are both too
obviously-'true to require proof.
To see the background of the.
President's speech on entrance re-
quirenients, one miust go back some
ten years to the time when an at-
tempt was first begun to build up
the material resources of the Uni-
versity by admitting large num-
bers of students. The step seemed
plausib~le in that it provided a con-
venient means of securing more
laboratories and buildings. When
the legislature saw that the older
buildings were unable to accommo-
date the large classes of undergrad-
uiates, grants for new buildings were
Btu t after the campus had been
improved by the addition of a large
number of buildings, it wa~s found
that -amon g 1the ti !de ot:. were
mny' who were unftL for Uniiver-
city educa tion. Amiong the uindcer-
graduates were the stup~id, the im-
moral, a.nd the psychopathic, as
well as the indolent, th-e irrespon-
sible, and the socially unadjusted.
Thc attempt to weed out these
undesirables, and to prevent their
their entrance to the University,i
was begun some years ago. It has
progressed steadily, to the great ad-
vantage of the- University.
Of late, a certain aniount of ob
jection to the policy has developed
among citizens of the state who
feel that since the University is a;
tax-supported institution, every
tax-payer may expec.t to have his
boy and girl admitted, and in re-
turn for cash paid may expect to
have some sort of ceritificate or di-
ploma to prove the filial intellec-
SThe fallacy of this obstinate be-
lief President Rutihven efficiently
pointed out, thus carrying a logi-
cal step further his admirable pol-
icy of reserving the state's hig~her
education for the fit.

imagery to act as tinder. for anE
emotional bonfire. His m'ind does
not leap quickly and romantically
from peak to peak of thought. He;
moves. to the conclusion with the;,
honest gravity of- the. relentless
thinker that Hamlet was.
The result was a Hamlet close to
what most people believe to be the I
true one, akin to the one emerging
from Coleridge's criticism. This is:
the tragedy of a:ri intellectual'-
caught in the meshes of a physical
situation---a civilized person aske-d:
to solve a barbarous problem. Ham-
let is a philosopher. A moral situa-
tion is presented him--the problem
of his murdered father arid his
wanton mother. This moral con-
flict certainly does not have im-I
plications subtle eilough to explain
Hamlet's profound reactions. It
merely starts Hamlet in a long
train of philosophic contemplation 1
that hinders all action. His speech-1
es bear the weight of long-accum-
ulated feelings a)bout the world;
that explains their obscurity and
their unnaturalness in so primitive1°
a situatio~n. Hlamliet cannot bring
himself to the point of action; a I
primitive act of revenge could not
possibly appease a mind trembling
with the shock of life itself. His
3madness, his oc tasional outburst.,
of levity, his daring way of acetus-
ing the king all constitute emno-
tional relief--t4he acts of a philoso-
pher with a fantastic sense of ir-
ony. He refuses to rant. His rage
does not; take the form of impreca-
tions liketh~at of Laertes; he in-
tellectuali:.es it.
Thus Georg~eI-Iayes' Hamlet is
more thalr an "ea~rthy" Hamlet
prey to the excitements of the
blood-a case of "engine trouble"
at the nerve centres eliciting path-
ological commiseration. He makesI
it a more serious tr'agedy of a man
who ponders too much, who be-
comes entangled! in a network of
his own complex intellectual re-
actions. H-amlet becomes a tragic I
figure solely because of the obverse,i
'profound qualities of his sensitive-
ness. "Undoubtedly this version
"raises Cain" with the play as aI
whole. There is too great a dis-
crepancy between H-amlet's emo-
tionsJ and the situation that calls
I them forth, Hamlet's reactions are
too sophisticated for so primitive
and sirm ple a moral situation;
hence they become obscure and a
little irrelevant. Shakespeare has I
managed to express heis idea, of)
1Hamlet; in the tissue of words that
1 make up the part but he has not
justified it in the other dramatic
values, plot and motivation. Very
likely for his reason the play is, as I
jT. S. Eliot calls it, an "artistic fail-
ure." Yet wve(are g rateful to MayesI
