duplicated when The Habima Players brought
their version of the play to America. For the
Hillel Players to present "Anna Christie," as I
understand they did, is an error of taste. To such
a play, it is scarcely conceivable how they could
bring any quality that is important or justified.
Quite the reverse is true of "The Dybbuk." In it
all the rich emotional sincerity and fervor which
is a touchstone for their passionate people should
be in the highest, most grateful relief.
If in their individual performances they are
wise enough to play with the starkest simplicity,
letting the full fervor of this great and powerful
play rush through, there will be a production of
extraordinary beauty, of primitive virility.

1810 to 1819 there was not a single case of small-
pox. From all over the world similar reports
poured in, with grateful resolutions and honors
for Jenner. One of the most touching tributes
came from a group of North American Indians
who wrote, "We shall not fail to teach our chil-
dren to speak the name of Jenner and to thank
the Great Spirit, for bestowing upon- him so much
wisdom and so much benevolence. We send with
this a belt, and a string of Wampum in token of
our acceptance of your precious gift, and we be-
seech the Great Spirit to take care of you in this
world and in the land of Spirits."

Intensely moving, the story begins with Con-
nors' commitment to the prison while he still has
the philosophy that only suckers work for a liv-
ing. After political pull and bribes have both
failed to move Warden Long to make things
easier for the prisoner, Connors begins to see that
the warden is a "square guy" after all and his
redemption begins.
The warden, after deciding that Connors is not
so tough as he thinks he is, releases him on his
honor for one day to see his girl, who, it is re-!
ported, is about to die as the result of an auto-
mobile accident. The prisoner finds that the girl
jumped from an automobile when one of Con-
nors' "friends" was taking advantage of his. ab-
sence. In the battle which follows in the girl's
room, Finn, the friend, is shot by the girl to save
Connors and he goes back to the "hot spot" toj
save the girl, an honest man in every way except
in the eyes of the law.
The warden is portrayed as a "white man,"
firm, stern to those who require an iron hand, but#
always willing to give a helping hand to those
who are honest with him. His life is pictured as
no bed of roses andhno one is sorrier to see Con-
nors go to the chair than he.
It is a good picture and an interesting presenta-
tion of prison life. -B. S.

Sforza, and acknowledge our appreciation to the
Carnegie EndowmenU for International Peace,
under whose auspices he is here.
The Hillel Players are presenting the poignant
drama of Jewish legend, "The Dybbuk," and,
while I can pretend to very little knowledge of the
campus productions, it seems highly fitting and
stimulating that such a group should present just
such a play. It stands to reason that if the large
number of University productions are to amount
to anything more than so much exhibitionism on
the part of various student actors, each group
must have a definite standard and metier. When
the Hillel Players present such a play as "The
Dybbuk" they are capitalizing a fine and very
rare quality that they alone can give. In such a
production they should justify their reason for
heDing. y
"The Dybbuk" tells in stirring measures the
primitive story of ancient Hebrew superstitions. It
is centered about Chassidism which afforded the
Jews of eastern Europe in the early Eighteenth
Century an escape into an intercommunicating
world of reality and unreality at a time whenI
their life was insecure and atrociously hard.
In the beginning Chassidism was of a gentle
and genial character, a reaction against a more
drastic and repellent religious psychology, the
Talmud worship in which Jewish life buried itself
after an era of massacre. The Baal Shem Tov
(Lord of the Holy Name) was a rare personality
who advocated deserting ritual and letters for a
return to Nature, and worship through joyousness.
