IS VIVISECTION SCIENTIFIC?
To the Editor:i
I should be very grateful if you
would allow me sufficient space in
your paper to express a few ideas
Recently I have been forced to
listen to the cries of dogs, presum-
ably being experimented upon,
howling piteously and wailing for
hours. I have asked students for
their views upon the subject of
vivisection. They almost all re-
gretted that this terrible type of
research existed upon the campus
but they seemed to have the vague
idea that it was necessary for the
continued welfare of humanity and
the education of medical students
That is utterly untrue. Vivisection
is unscientific. It is a product of
what G. K. Chesterton, in his re-
cent lecture on modern methods of
thought called the "Age of Unrea-
son" to which he asserted that
many scientific men belong. The
whole n rninle of vivisection is

'ROLLO'S WILD OAT'
The very popular reception that
.as granted Play Production's per-
formance of Claire Kummer's farce,
'Rollo's Wild Oat" last week-end
has prompted a repetition of the
roduction tonight in the Mendels-
sohn Theatre. The play in a very
-ompetent farce manner deals with
the woes of an adolescent who
squanders his fortune on a pro-
duction of "Hamlet" but falls in
love with the Ophelia, a miserable
actress who likes to sew.
CORNELIA OTIS SKINNER
A Review by William J. (A orinan.
The importance of acting as an
art has been considerably obscured
by the Gordon Craig lust for stag-
ing. It should be a great day then
for actors when a Ruth Draper o
a Cornelia Skinner so thoroughly
vindicates their oft-disputed and
oft-damned art. For these artists
manage theveryessence of drama
ith the body alone. They drive
at the very heart of several realities
with no apparatus of any kind. In
the light of such an evening as
Miss Skinner afforded a large auc-
ence last night, the laboured real-
ism of theatre or even the success-
ful stylization seem for the moment
a litftle pathetic. That uncompro-
mising, typical League red chair
became, by the imaginative force
of a great actress, quite completely
a ship-rail and a Pontiac back- -
Vaudeville artists made the old
monologue," done in an intense
and unbearably wierd chant (the
extra spoken chorus to "a pal aftr
all is a pal after all), a menace.
Miss Draper and Miss Skinner have
made it a satisfying art-form where
personal intelligence and personal
2echnique can find a happy focus.
Miss Skinner's conceptions-from
"he pathos of the New York poor
.n their Sunday automobile to the
ld Woman at Monte Carlo, senile
nerves and greedy eyes - are all
precisely imagined and articulated.
Miss Skinner is very thoroughly
the mistress of the chameleon's
magic. She adapts herself to a pro-
gram oimpersonations with ab-
sence of effort and certainty of
aim. Her ear for accent, pitch, and
tempo of different characters' tal
-the English lecturer, the Phila -
delphia mother, the Barbadoes girl
-is infallible. Voice and mask to-j
gether are sufficiently flexible to1
give, so to speak, the rythm of
several personalities. Fine sugges-
tive gestures indicate other people,
indicate life and make monologt e'
Hersketches are carefully, swift-
ly ordered. They are filled with ex-
perience, with intelligent satiric
comment. They are sincere, and
spontaneous. Her technique of act-
ing gives them fine pattern.
The program very nicely ranges
from gracious humour, almost fan-
tasy (in the sketch of the English
Explorer of Africa lecturing cas-
ually to Americans) to satire on the
garrulity and vacuity of the Amer-
ican woman. The humour is charm-
ing (though that of the Goody-
Byes from the Boat Rail is a bit
obvious and familiar). The satire
is incisive, yet stays on the better
side of malice.
She is most significant, however,
when she tries, in the Ruth Draper
manner, for sompething deeper than
humour, satire or impersonation-
for the pointed revelation of char-
acter. The New York peasant
woman, vainly struggling with
brawling children and a snarling
husband (whom she loves) in an
effort to "enjoy the country," the
Barbadoes woman with a heredi-
tary taint, and the feverish lady at
Monte Carlo working out a system,
were the finest things on the pro-
Miss Skinner's beauty as a lin-
guist, clear enough throughout the
program, was beautifully summed
up in a reading of Emile Verhaer-
1 en's "Le Vent" when the wind lit-
erally whistled through lovely vocal
