aged and broken personalities" will
be carried on throughout the state
after the institute is established, and
a great part of the institute's activi-
ties will be research work with the
object of discarding and revising
many of the handling cases.
. lie :statement of President Ruth-
Ven in this connection observes that
"While the University now assumes
its due responsibility in the matter
of adjusting our citizens to their so-
cial surroundings by (1) producing
adequate training of specialists in
the treatment of such cases, (2) by
establishing standards of excellence
and efficiency in this newly arising
profession, and (3) by awakening
throughout the state an appreciation
of the importance of this need to the
rising generation, it recognizes that
continued research work is necessary
adequately to meet the situation and
place the processes of adjustment on
a sound, scientific basis. This re-
search must be devoted to the still
further improvements of the methods
already developed by its staff. The
resources of the institute both in
personnel and physical and physio-
logical, equipment will be chiefly de-
voted to this end.
"A systematically developed series
of courses of instruction will be ar-
ranged in the College of Literature,
Science and the Arts covering the
genesis of specificity in its unfolding
in all these fields and the etiology of
the interruptions and deviations of
structure and function of the or-

dramas, Professor Rowe said "The
play is distinct from the now rapidly
becoming conventional strike-play in
the emphasis on the impact of the
economic and social forces on the
character and the relations within
the domestic circle. There is a marked
depth of character creation and de-
velopment, particularly in the ma-
ture characters, which is unusual in
'he drama of so young a writer.
Tendency Toward Harshness
"There has been a tendency," Pro-
fessor Rowe said, "in the best known
examples in recent years of intimate
domestic plays, such as "Another
Language" and Odet's "Awake and
Sing" towards harshness. This play
has an entirely individual tone in
the respect and tenderness that un-
derlies the humor and blunt realism.
That was the quality that gave charm
and outstanding merit to the first
version which won a Hopwood award
last spring. In successive revisions
the events outside the home have
been expanded with new scenes which
give punch and theatrical drive to
the play. With events of greater
magnitude acting upon them, the
characters steadily grow in depth
and interest under Mr. Miller's hands
and the social significance has gained
definition and vigor."
The characters are receiving "an
inwardness and richness of interpre-
tation from members of the Hillel
Players that realizes exactly the tone
of Mr. Miller's writing," Professor
