Gilbert Foregoes Babs Ballad'
To Do 'Yeoman Of The Guard'

"Screws may twist and racks may
And men may bleed and men
O'er London tow'r and its golden
I keep my silent watch and
Thus run Gilbert's merry lines to
Sullivan's music, marking the first
time, that he stayed away from the
"Babs Ballads." in "The Yeomen of
the Guard," the joint Play Produc-
tion and School of Music presenta-
tion, Jan. 20-24, at the Lydia Men-
Gilbert and Sullivan were a Ben
Hecht-Charles MacArthur sort of
team. Gilbert, the son of a striving
novelist, and Sullivan, the pride and
heir of a cultured Irish musician,
obviously carried on their parental
Gilbert gave vent to his desire to
write in some excellent comic verse
which he contributed to Henry J.
Byron's "Fun" Magazine, accompa-
nied by cartoons of his own drawing.
In 1869, these hilarious verses were
collected under the title of "Bab's
Ballads," the name derived from
his childhood nickname.
Unite To Collaborate
More than a year after Gilbert had
met the musician whom he admired,
they united to collaborate for a piece
for D'Oyly Carte. The first three
opuses were hardly far removed from
the "Bab's Ballads" and it remained
for their "Yoeman of the Guard" to
show any signs of elaboration.
Their parrnership was stormy, for
Gilbert was often truculent and caus-
tic while Sullivan was broadminded,
free of affectation and popular. They]
quarreled incessantly, and finally at-
tempted a breech of partnership en-
tircly when Gilbert resented the petty
price of a carpet purchased for the
D'Oyly Carte Theatre while he was in
India. Their enmity was short-lived,
Sullivan Khighted First
A sensitive man, his later years
were made- bitter because Sullivan
was knighted while he was complete-
ly ignored. In due time, he, too, was
to have the honor of a "Sir" before
his name, but even then he accepted
the knighthood grumbling because
it had been conferred upon him as
a "playwright" rather than a "dra-
Sullivan died normally of bron-
chitis and heart-trouble at the age
of 59. It remained for Gilbert to
die quite abnormally at the age of
74 while attenpting to rescue a
young swimmer at Grim's Dyke,
where he had retired.

The process by which President
Cardenas asserted himself in his of-
fice in spite of his earlier connection
with the powerful Calles, iron man of
Mexico, was outlined by Dr. Foster.
"President Cardenas who is generally=
conceded to be honest, though often9
dubbed as crazy, took his job seriously
and proceeded to execute his obliga-
tions as he understood them. His
program, called the six-year plan, in-
volves equitable distribution of the
land, better wages for workers, uni-
versal education, an adequate trans-
portation system and a generalr
health program" he concluded. r

service board was voiced by Profes-
"This departure from past admin-
istrative practice in the federal civil
service system is entirely justified,"
"Perhaps I may be pardoned a ref-
erence to the procedure recommend-
ed for the selection of the expert
civil service administrator who is to
administer federal personnel matters
under the President," he continued.
"Seven months ago when the Michi-
gan proposal was presented, we em-
bodied a similar provision in it for
the selection of the State Personnel
Director. The federal proposal now
follows our lead in that respect."
Professor Pollock was chairman
of the Michigan Civil Service Studies
Commission set up by former Gov.
"I have nothing but commendation
for the recommendation concerning
increase of salaries," Professor Pol-
lock said, "The same applies to the
extension of the classified service 'up-
ward, outward and downward'," he
"Nothing could more quickly and
properly rescue our federal service
from many present abuses and dan-
gers than the prompt enactment of
every recommendation made by the
President's Committee in that part
of its report dealing with personnel
management," Professor Pollock said.
"The President is to be con-
gratulated for having the courage
and the intelligence to put the recom-
mendations on the way to enact-
ment," he said.
