Marchbanks, needs her more?
Her decision is the climax of the play. Even in
this 1932 it is a good and moving choice. The youth-
ful Shaw has remained ever-young in his "Candida."
His spirit of youth wil make it live when many of
his later pieces are happily forgotten. And it is the
final irony that it is the "romantic" Bernard Shaw

entirely up to one character to do
the job. It was a hard job appar-
ently for Mr. Benstock, who fell
heir to the difficult task. Despite
his almost too melodramatic make-
up and voice, Mr. Benstock could
not handle the much too long solil-

not his fault at all; the lines were
simply unweildy. The story is that

M ANY of last year's graduates, unsuccessful in
their search for employment, returned to the
University this year for a master's degree. Num-
bers of this year's seniors have also signified their
intention of doing the same if they are unable to
find a job.
There are several reasons why this is a wise
policy and should be considered by everyone about
to graduate. Anyone who is financially able to
stay in school another year lessens, by so doing,
the employment difficulties of those people who
must work to live. With thousands of people de-
pendent upon charity for their livihg, an individual
can render help quite as concrete as if he contrib-
uted to the Salvation Army if he will remove his
name from the list of job-seekers and thus remove
one name from the dependents on the community
And many who could not afford to take an-
other year under other circumstances can do so
now. Never has the cost of education been lower.
Prices of room and board have dropped prodigi-
ously within the past two years and in all likeli-
hood will remain down for several years to come.
A dollar will go farther toward a year's education
today than in many years past. In many cases the
cost of living another year in Ann Arbor will not
differ greatly from that of a year of enforced idle-
ness anywhere else.
The movement also will be of service if it
brings more forcibly to the attention of the grad-
uates the fact that as the number of graduates
increases yearly, the value of a batchelor's degree
becomes relatively less significant, and that it is
necessary now to have an advanced degree to
enjoy the distinction that was the batchelor's not
many years ago.
It is hard to find a silver lining in some clouds,{
but here is one even in the depression. There's no
great loss without some small gain.

The Shavian balance is rectified. In reviewing in
succession "Too True To Be Good," play of 1931, and
"Candida," play of 1895, the critic realizes that on
nearly every score on which "Too True To Be Good"
was reproached, "Candida" goes blameless. The scene
in "Candida" is ordained; drawing room in St. Dom-
inic's parsonage in a northeastern suburb of London.
It is further described with the particularity custom-
ary to Mr. Shaw in his stage directions.

and stage-being. Their dress, manners, speech, and

The circumstances connected with the affair are after
far more complicated than was stated. The first
point I desire to clarify is that I have been the
aggrieved party. The differences between Mr. Chak- Pre

While in the office discussing this matter he, with- teere

Dean Bursley thereupon stated that circumstantial
evidence was against him. This seemed to increase
his malicious wrath. And out of a clear sky he made M
