Individualismn . .
L UIGI PIRANDELLO, amazingly
prolific writer of romances, essays,
and plays, modern Italy's foremost man of letters,
died last Thursday in his Roman villa, after a
brief illness, at the age of sixty-nine. As he lay
ill his most famous piece, Six Characters in
Search of an Author, was being revived by a
Rome reportory company.
Although Pirandello is known chiefly for his
plays, such as Tonight We Improvise, The Giants
of the Mountains, Right You Are, If you Think
You Are; Lazzero, and Enrico IV, he did not
until he was fifty venture into the medium of the
drama. At fifty-five he was regarded as Italy's
premier playwright, in those five years of his
work in the theatre having twenty-two success-
Pirandellp belongs to the neo-romantic tradi-
tion, along with Maeterlinck and Andreyev. All
three concerned themselves with what have been
called since the beginning of the nineteenth cen-
tury, "the mysteries of human life." Life to the
neo-romanticists went within, although the stage
remained without. Pirandello, of all the school,
most humanized his art. He dealt almost ex-
clusively with one theme: how much does a per-
sons's individuality depend on himself and how
much on others? Is a man the creature of his
own power, or of his environment? Where does
sanity end and madness begin? These questions
he never finally answered, believing with Laudisi
that truth is ultimately subjective, or "Right you
are, if you think you are."
But despite his creation of undeniably good
theatre, Pirandello's work will wither in memory
along with the rest of the cherry orchard of half-
bitter, half-compassionate, ego- and imagina-
tion-intoxicated neo-romantics. Rousseau seed-
ed a crop which has been harvested and con-
sumed, and the artistic irresponsibility of thy
individual will disappear with the disappearance
of a society based on irresponsible individualisni:
Said Pirandello, in 1931, "I am a sworn enemy
of tendencies or schools of thought. Artistic
creation must be born spontaneously. It must
spring unconsciously from the mind, and the
creative artist must never know what he is striv-
ing after. Art is a Work of fantasy. It is elfin
and wayward. It follows no masters and has no
axe to grind. If the dramatist ever attempts to
utilize the stage as a pulpit, he is doomed to
failure, for art always exacts a heavy toll from
Great Dutch Humanist
To the Editor:
Students may wish to know what kind of a
man Erasmus was. A short paragraph in Prof.
Carl Becker's "Modern History" sums up what
the man stood for: "Erasmus liked above all
things clear and honest thinking; he disliked
above all things intolerance and persecution. He
was the greatest of the humanists because his
books, more effectively than any others, propa-
gated a humane philosophy of life, teaching that
one's chief duties are to be intelligent, open-
minded, charitable, and of good will to all men."
How many of us are living up to the ideals of
Erasmus who died 400 years ago?
Breeders Of Discontent -
To the Editor:
In answer to criticisms concerning the Baird
Carillon and to Mr. Pratt's playing, I must say
that many of our so-called "barometic students"
seem intent on one thing and that is to breed
"discontent." Just because they whose minds are
like deadened steel; being hardened to all of the
elements, whether it be music, nature, or art; is
no reason why we as music-lovers should be de-
prived of that which we enjoy. I say that if they
dislike the manner in which they are played let
them turn "a deaf-ear" to them. It is of the
so-called modern opinion that the more some
of our "independent thinking" youth has a
chance to possess the more they want to brood
and breed discontent. Let us be more altruistic
in our attitude toward one another. I am sure
that I can rightfully say that those of us who
really appreciate and want to understand good
music will sanction and wish Mr. Pratt the great-
est success in his undertaking during the ap-
proaching holiday and the ensuing New Year.
How can any one with a clear conscience say
that the University has squandered money in it's
effort to give the people of Ann Arbor the music
that everyone from the poorest to the richest can
enjoy. Mr. Pratt's having studied with a pupil
of Joseph Denyn should certainly be enough to
prove his qualifications, if anyone were to know
the world's greatest. Surely we a liberal minded
American public don't want to gloat and quibble
over something that has been handed to us. The
recent November 25 must have no meaning to
such broadminded "men."

Spaniards' Behavior Explained
To the Editor:
Reading Mr. Flores' article about Spain, I
found that he was pulling in the direction of
wishful thinking, expressing his own prejudices
in a bombastic naivete. His confused thought
was the cause of another article entitled "A
'White' Replies," and signed I. E. L.
Mr. I.E.L.'s article insists so badly upon a ra-
tional explanation accounting for the behavior
of the group he calls Red, that I undertake the
task, asking Mr. Flores for an apology in case
he sends another answer. I hope my claim is
justified since I am also "d Spaniard from ever
since I can remember."
During and before the present revolution I
have been regretting the destruction of churches,
property and life, and yet when I look for the
cause, I can hardly blame the masses for what
is taking place. The causes are not at the sur-
face of things as journalistic verbiage seems
to imply. The behavior of groups is compre-
hended only when we study the ground or
society in which they are rooted, and therefore
permit me to recite a few facts of the history
of my country.
Spain had a Golden Age (Siglo de Oro) but it
was followed by continuous degeneration in the
entire social, political and moral structure, great-
ly accelerated by the coming of the Bourbon
House in 1700. Sinking down and down Spain
passed almost 200 years sleeping, ruled by an ir-
responsible and ignorant nobility who reduced
the.lower classes to a state of degradation. Their
time was spent bleeding the weak organism of
the nation in order to satisfy selfish desires, with-
out adding a single drop in the way of culture.
Their occupation was the pursuit of the pleasures
of the body, and their morals were the reverse
of the Catholic teachings, which they pretend to
defend so fanatically-what a ridiculous para-
Being an ignorant and decadent nobility, they
were enemies of all intellectual activities which
flourished in the middle class. Their power and
ignorance have systematically destroyed, century
after century, the little science and philosophy
left from the past. Those who doubt my words
may consult the history of any science after 1700
and will find the sad fact that Spain has pro-
duced very few great men in science. The least
respected person in Spain was the intellectual.
The ex-king himself, Alfonso XIII, did not toler-
ate in his nation the presence of great men, such
as Unamuno, Blasco Ibanez, and others, for they
were dangerous to the tranquility of Spain. Nev-
ertheless, Alfonso's heart was for the military
academies, which produced such a beautiful and
come winking about with chains to fasten on pas-
When men are seeking a new way of living, and
building a new society, when they are exchang-
ing false values for real, there is surely the
greatest of all dramas, all poetries, all furious,
vital, inspiring arts. Small truth there is in the
thin fantasies of the human mind; truly, here
Laudisi was right, and so was Pirandello his cre-
ator, because they thought so, and because a
who1 eivilization thought so. Tittle ean we
abundant collection of "uniformes vistosos" to
emngross his insipid company of generals.
The taxes of the people went to the support
of parasites--politicians, officers, etc.; the rest
was spent in keeping our little protectorate inj
North Africa to satisfy the imperialistic vanity of
the king and his generals, for in Spain every
noble became a general. Meanwhile the people'
were deprived of all elementary and higher edu-
cation. Only a few state high schools and pri-
vate colleges were open and these were too expen-
sive for the middle class, and forbidden for the
In the light of all these facts we can under-
stand the irrational behavior of the "Reds." For
after all, so ignorant a people as the Spanish
cannot use wisdom, and it is bound to express
desires in brutal and inhuman form. It is reason
that differ entiates man from the beast, and when
reason has been repressed for centuries, why
should we look for rational behavior? I do not
offer an excuse for what is taking place, I merely
find the causes, which are the neglect and ignor-
ance of the nobles. When a minority has per-
verted a nation to a state of degradation, the
minority will sooner or later face the national
organism refusing to support parasites.
Now I hope, we understand the "stubborn re-
sistance" of the people. As for the destruction of
artistic treasures I may say that it is done to
secure bread and life, which are more important
than art. The masses in Spain lacked bread and
dignity, and they fight for it; your charges of
destroying artistic objects is irrelevant and mere-
ly shows "your interest in art" and your dis-
interest for deeper and more fundamental prob-
lems. Furthermore you seem to forget or ignore
the fact that the greatest destruction done in
Madrid was done by the "Whites." Please do
not think I am a Red or a white as you are.
I transcend either one of these two colors. Your
calling yourself a White (or a Red) serves only
to stress your provinciahties and narrow loyal-
ties. I call myself a "human being," feeling the
full complexity of human problems and the nar-
row perspectives offered by your White and
by the opposite group, the Reds. The spectrum is
formed of more colors than white and red.
Peter And The Rabbit
To the Editor:
Last Tuesday The Daily printed a letter of
mine to the effect that people now of University
age were seriously affected by the war and its im-
mediate aftermath even though they were babies
at the time. From various comments and crit-
icisms, it appears that not everyone understood
what I was driving at. This is an attempt at
I was trying to apply the psychological theory
of "conditioning" to the war situation and its
effect on us. All good little' psychology students
know the story of Peter and the Rabbit. Peter
was a Normal Baby, Average and amiable and
everything a baby should be, able to cope with
Gesell at his worst. That's why the psychologists
took the poor child to experiment on. They put
him in a playroom with a lot of toys, and just as
he was beginning to have a good time, they
brought in a the Rabbit. It was an admirable
rabbit, friendly and soft, and Peter grabbed for it.
Just as he touched it, they hit a steel bar which
made a horrid loud noise. Peter jumped, and
bowled. They took the rabbit away. When Peter
calmed down and was beginning to enjoy him-
self again, they brought in the rabbit. Peter
felt rather doubtful about it; still, it was enticing
-so he reached for it. More noise. They kept
that up until the baby howled every time he even
saw the rabbit. He had no way of knowing that
the rabbit was not responsible for the noise, and
he was afraid of the noise. So the fear was
transferred to the rabbit. Peter was conditioned
to fear rabbits. Then they had to go through a
long process of unconditioning him, because if
they hadn't he would have been uneasy about
rabbits all his life, and would probably have
hated his wife's fur coat.
Now war isn't as tangible as rabbits; and
we received the emotional shock by transference,
through our elders, where Peter was directly
afraid of the noise. Perhaps the theory doesn't.
fit. Still, in both cases there is a strong, un-
pleasant emotion, repeatedly aroused until it is
ingrained. . In both cases the thing happened
when reason could not neutralize the reception or
control the direction of the response. Some of us
learned a true conditioned response to ideas or
objects. (There is no sensible reason on this
earth why I should have been so disturbed by an
innocent phrase. The reaction was violent and
automatic, like Peter's fear of the rabbit). Others
have only a vague general uneasiness, coming
from they don't know where, roused by they don't
know what. Most have outgrown and forgotten
all about it.
But however much we have forgotten, down in
the bottom of our minds is the knowledge of
what war feels like. It was one of the first things
we knew. The shaking insecurity and terror of
a world gone mad was our birthright. Whether
it shows itself in one of those queer little con-
ditioned responses or not, it is there, powerful
and unreasonable, ready to do strange things to
our behavior when it is aroused. We knew noth-
ing about the war. We knew nothing about the
peace. But babies as we were, we received their
emotional shock, and it has marked us. There-
fore I say that we were seriously affected by the.
war and its immediate aftermath.

PENNIES FROM HEAVEN
Once in a while a picture comes
along with a musical star that has a
story. The story may not be veryk
heavy, but at least it does more than
provide situations for the star to sing.

This time Bing Crosby is an itiner-
ant singer and "lutist." The ultimate
destination of his itinerary is Venice.
He has been detained en route in the
penitentiary, and the picture starts
with an about to be electrocuted'
murderer giving Bing a letter to the
family of his victim. The family con-
sists of a little girl and her grand-
father who share a cheerful philos-
ophy about such matters as being
dispossed. But the child likes school
none too well, and Social Worker!
Madge Evans, is about to put her in
an orphange. The letter from Bing's
prison buddy turns out to be the gift
of a country home to the girl and
the old man-of course, the place is
haunted. Things drift along in the!
picture with Bing, the child, the old
man, and Louis Armstrong opening
a roadside tavern without capital,t
financial difficulties, ensuing the

misunderstanding and love between
Bing and Madge, and incidental
songs. All ends happily with Bing

star, barring those with operatic
qualifications, who sings naturally
without seeming to be working stren-
uously to impress his public. He
seems to have something approach-
ing a sense of humor about his voice.'
Louis Armstrong also has a song in
the picture-something about skele-
tons in the closet which is a bright
spot of the picture. Little Edith Fel-
lows, a child actress, is neither pretty
nor cute, but she adds a good deal to
the picture with a first rate perfor-
mance. By this time you are prob-
ably familiar with the picture's hit
songs, "Pennies from Heaven" and
"One, Two, Button your Shoe" are
the outstanding ones.
This is a simple picture with no
pretentions. It has plenty of op-
portunities to become gummed with
E sentimentality, but it stays human.
It is a good example of the "sim-
plicity in entertainment" keynote of
some of Columbia's surprise hit pic-
