mediocre; the direction was average and the acting,
as a whole, was fair. Acting, seen analytically, di-
vides a play into those having the leads and those
supporting artists filling up the cast. A strong and
impressive leading character often pulls the acting
up to a high stage purely by his own talents, bal-
ancing a mediocre suporting cast while a good
suporting cast can elevate the value of the acting
by balancing a weak lead.
y There are two leading characters in this piece
but it rested upon the shoulders of one to raise the
acting ability of the whole. That one was Paul
Wermer, who, as Prince Sirki (Death in disguise)
really portrayed that character with most of the!

We went only because we want-

happen to the Economics Building.
Some day we are going over there-

The Rolls photographer was sent
out to get a picture of Dr. Ruthven

Our good professors are near-

a class with people getting up

ALTER LIPPMANN, following the recent
W defeat of Franklin Roosevelt in the Massa-
chusetts presidential primary and the practically
inconsequential victory of the New York governor
in Pennsylvania, stated in his column "Today and
Tomorrow" that the Democratic convention which
meets in June at Chicago will do well not to
nominate either Roosevelt or Smith.
To name either of these candidates would
prove more a handicap for the party than to select
a nonentity. Roosevelt is popular 'in the West
where he has not been so well known while in
the East where his policies and accomplishnents
are more than a little familiar he has met with
surprising opposition. Lippmann points out that
the Massachusetts defeat amply illustrates the fact
that the industrial and thickly populated East,
where Roosevelt is best known, does not want
him and would prefer someone else.
The Democratic party is a party of extremes,
it is a party which includes the most bigoted
reactionaries and rabid liberals; the dryest drys
and the wettest wets are contained within its fold
and to pick a presidential candidate who can satis-
fy all elements and receive their support is always
a delicate task. Roosevelt is a man who will prove
desirable to the West, which agrees with the
governor's talk on helping the struggling masses
while in the East, where his actions have spoken
louder than his verbal enunciations, he is not so
desirable. Smith, on the other hand, because of
various influences is only satisfactory to the great
metropolitan centers but curiously not desirable
to the industrialists nor the agricultural interests.
We agree with Mr. Lippmann in saying that
if the Democratic party is to win the election in
November, which it can do, it must not nominate
either man from New York. Such an. action would
only be another one of the notorious mistakes of
the Democrats when they might choose a man
like Newton D. Baker.
A ReviewI
by Jerry E. Rosenthal
When the Hillel players took it upon thmselves
two years ago to put on "Caponsacchi," a precedent
involving the production of unordinary works, which
include depth and a high degree of sympathy lack-
ing in most modern pieces, was established. In
keeping with this tradition the players last night
presented Cassello's intense fantasy to a crowded
Laboratory theatro with more than mediocre success.
To put on "Death Takes a Holiday" excellently
an excellent cast is an absolute necessity; to put
it on fairly well, a fair cast is required and to give
it poorly, it is not hard to surmise that a poor cast
can only do it this way. The aforementioned state-
ment is neither as obvious nor as general as it4
appears on the surface. The general run of modern
plays can be and are presented successfully (if any
are successful these days) with no more than medi-
ocre casts. Plays better than the general run require
more skilled players and unless these are supplied
the nlo is not sucessfu1 Ca1ssll's nlav is better I
