nomics, who will be dropped at the end of this
semester. The facts of his dismissal may be best
understood from his own statement:
"Due to a widespread interest in the question of
my status at Columbia I feel it desirable to give
the facts of this situation. In December I was
informed by Professor R. C. Tugwell, head of the
Economics Department, that I would not be re-
appointed for the coming year.
This is my fifth year of teaching at Columbia,
and my seventh year of University teaching. Like
other instructors, my contract is on a yearly basis.
Until a year ago last fall there was no question
of my reappointment. During the summer of 1931
I became more active in the revolutionary move-
mient and received considerable publicity in the
newspapers in connection with these activities.
That fall, (18 months ago) I was advised by Pro-
fessor Tugwell to look for another job. He stated
at that time that in case of lack of success in
finding another position, I would not be dis-
missed. I made definite attempts to find another
position. In the Spring of 1932 my activities in
connection with the Kentucky Student Delega-
tion and particularly the Columbia strike resulted
in extreme pressure being brought to bear for my
"Last December Professor Tugwell informed me
that I would not be reappointed. At the same time,
Professor Tugwell suggested that in view of the
fact that I would have difficulty in getting a
position at another university, he would attempt
to secure a fellowship for me. Following this
'suggestion' Professor Tugwell recently offered'
me an appointment by the university as 'Research
Assistant,' at a salary $700 less than my present
one. The condition attached to this offer was
that the year be spent in the Soviet Union.
"The facts in this situation raise clearly and
definitely the issue of academic freedom. Under
these circumstances the offer of a research as-
sistantship by Columbia University can have no
other intention than to obscure the issue."
At the Case School of Applied Science, the Case
National Student League group called a campus
meeting to protest against a reduction in faculty
personnel of 23 per cent and to demand lower
tuition fees. Immediately afterwards, a special
conference of the Board of Trustees decided to
require Alexander Buchman, a leading member of
the National Student League, to apologize pub-
licly for" an article written more than two weeks
before in which he disagreed with various views
held by Dr. Wickenden, president of the school.
Buchman courageously refused to do so and was
immediately expelled. There can be no doubt that
this dismissal is wholly due to his militant lead-
ership of the fight against retrenchment.
The most popular professor at Birmingham
Southern University, Dr. Kenneth E. Barnhart,
professor of Sociology, has been dropped and So-
ciology thereby eliminated from the curriculum,
ostensibly for reasons of economy. This "economy"
involves saving Dr. Barnhart's salary, $2,76$8, and
losing $5,040, the total. tuition payment for his
courses. Dr. Barnhart has more students in his
classes than any other professor. Members of the
Board of Directors, the President, and other pro-
fessors have accused him of -being a "Nigger
Lover," "teaching Communism and Evolution,"
probing "too far" into the question of prostitution,
the Negro housing question, and general social
Dr. Brnhart is not a communist, and is a

FIGURES OF FUN
By J. Brooks Atkinson
Note: Mr. Atkinson is the distinguished dramatic
critic of The New York Times. His appreiation is re-
printed by permission
Anyone with a hair's breadth of brain rattling
loose in his cranium knows that the plot of
"Twelfth Night" does not make sense. For no
sufficient reason a shipwrecked maiden puts on
a man's attire and becomes man servant to a
love-sick poseur. Serving as his male duenna, she
pleads his suit to a hot-house poseuse who is in-
dulging her vanity somewhat too ostentatiously in
mourning the death of her brother.
There is more, equally vain. When it has all
been talked down the hatch, everyone impulsively
changes and marries in unseemly haste.
But even when the plot is much too muzzy for
the modern idiom; we have the raciness and
a gusto unparalleled in the very writing of such
characters as Si'r Toby Belch. "My lady's a Cat-
alan, we are politicians, Malvoli's a Peg-a-Ram-
sey, and "Three merry men be we'" As words
they have a good roast beef flavor. Spoken by a
rotund toss-pot in the theatre, they give out a
stout, comic sound quite apart from their vagrant
Shakespeare's prose style abounds in the ex-
travagant earthiness of men, like Sir Toby, who
have a vast appetite for living. Unlike the prose
style of their modern counterparts, for we still
have characters with a vast appetite for living,
it has rich variety and a lusty rhythm. Like the
works of Fielding and Sterne, it is a source of
healthy, masculine writing, brimming with the
humour of good tap-room companions.
But primarily it is the poetry that captures the
imagination. In "Twelfth Night" some of it has
the needle-point clarity of violin music. Scarcely
has the curtain gone up before Orsino supplies
all the dramatic exposition you need in the frag-
rance of the opening lines:
If music be the food of love, play on;
Give me excess of it, that, surfeiting,
The appetite may sicken and so die.
That strain again! It had a dying fall;
O, it came o'er my ear like the sweet sound
That breathes upon a bank of violets,
Stealing and giving odor!
No tale of pious truths is this, then. But a
fabulous comedy of youths drugged with romantic
love in Illyria. They are deliciously in love with
love until Shakespeare, having pieced out the eve-
ning, brushes the magic spell away, and bids them
love each other. While the spell is on "Twelfth
Night" is a microcosm of savors and fancies.
This brings us to Jane Cowl's enchanting ver-
sion of "Twelfth Night" and her performance as
the love-sick Viola, following hard on the heels
of her superb "Romeo and Juliet." From everv
point of view this new interpretation of "Twelfth
Night" is a thing of delight-sweet in tone, light
of touch and robustly funny in the roistering
For a perfect Viola, Jane Cowl has just the
right touch of mischief, coupled with her great
beauty and her golden voice, surprisingly enough,
adapts itself splendidly to the lively relish Shake-
speare had when he wrote this holiday piece. Miss
Cowl also has the glamour of poetic fantasy, the
beauty of speech the lines require and a very evi-
dent love of the part she has selected to play.
Joyce Carey shares with Miss Cowl honors in
her production. Miss Carey as Olivia is a pellucid
characterization of this imaginative figure. I can-
not recall any quite as lovely in previous produc-
tions. And the low comedy of Walter Kingsford
as Sir Toby is enormously funny, quite the most
spontaneous Shakespearian clowning this town of
New York has seen in recent memory.
It is a thoroughly sunny interpretation, with
Shakespeare given the chance to come into the
ascendant. Under such gracious guiding stars we
could completely recreate the antic fun of Shake-
speare in America.
