Puppet Presentation Obviates
Peer Gynt Technical Troubles

Of The DAY

(By The Associated Press)
Pain Disturbs Pope But
Condition Is 'Unchanged'
VATICAN CITY, Feb. 23.-0GP)-In-
termittent pain disturbed Pope Pius
tonight, although his condition was
reported fundamentally unchanged..
The tight bindings on his legs added,
to his discomfort, it was understood.
Dr. Aminta Milani, the Pope's
physician, was reluctant to loosen the
leg bandages for fear wounds brought
on by the Holy Father's condition
might reopen.
Prompt Test Planned
For Sumners Bill
WASHINGTON, Feb. 23.-(A)-
Senate leaders arranged tonight for a
prompt test of Senate sentiment on
the Sumners Bill, which would per-
nit Supreme Court justices to retire
on full pay at the age of 70.
Passage is generally predicted, for
numerous Senators who have an-
nounced unyielding opposition to
President Roosevelt's proposal for re-
vapning the Supreme Court are al-
readyr to vote for the retirement bill..

Ibsen's Play Is To Be Given
Saturday; Orchestra Will
Accompany Production
The use of marionettes in produc-
ing Ibsen's "Peer Gynt" will obviate
many of the numerous technical dif-
ficulties of staging that play, Prof.
Norman L. Willey of the German
department believes.
The Tatterman Marionettes, na-
tional famous group, will offer "Peer
Gynt" Saturday, Feb. 27 in matinee
and evening performances, brought
to the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre
by Prof. Herbert A. Kenyon of the
R~omance Languages department and
director of the Lydia Mendelssohn
Calling the play a "caprice of Ib-
sen's," Professor Willey explained
that "The great poet never conceived.
that this 'dramatic poem,' as he called
it, would ever be staged; he wrote it
merely for the reader and paid no at-
tention whatsoever to the difficulties
of presenting it visually.
'There are very few people," he
said, "who have ever seen "Peer
Gynt" on the stage and of these
not one in 10 has seen the entire
play, for if it is not cut mercilessly
p requires two performances to com-
Professor Willey further explained
the play from the point of drama-

turgical workmanship as "the most
capricious of all the master's prod-
ucts; it violates every unity, covers
the space of a lifetime, carries us
from Norway to Morocco and Egypt
and back again to Scandinavia, and
introduces episodes that are com-
pletely foreign to the central action
of the play. As a result it is very
hard to follow; in fact, I doubt," Pro-
fessor Willey continued, "if any stu-
dent ever understood "Peer Gynt" at
the first reading. I can vouch for
the fact," he emphasized, "that some
of them have not!"
In spite of these difficulties, Profes-
sor Willey explained that "Peer Gynt"
is the "most characteristically Nor-
wegian of all Ibsen's works, and it is
so familiar to his countrymen that,
everyone quotes from it unconscious-
ly. The master uses the tattered
braggart to ridicule the shortcomings
of Norwegians. Yet they have adopt-
ed the figure of Peer Gynt as their
national hero almost as we Yankees
have Uncle Sam."
Accompanying the performance
will be the University Symphony Or-
Peace Council Meeting
Is To Be Held Tonight
The University Peace Council will
meet at 7:30 p.m. today in the Union,I
it was announced yesterday by Ju-
lian Orr, '37, president, in order
to discuss plans for the annual peace
rally in April.
Also to^be considered at tonight's
meeting, to which all students inter-
ested in the cause of peace are in-
vited, is the "15 minutes a month for
peace" program by which stud nts
are to devote that much time wriing
letters to their Congressmen demand-
ing a stand on neutrality legislation.
The Council hopes to make the pro-
gram on this campus one of the
most significant of such programs

Gradu ate Students
Recall Prohibition
(Continued from Page 1)
obtainable, have risen in popularity
in Ann Arbor, one graduate student
pointed out, and he believed that this
resulted in an increased number of
women drinkers. Several lawyers ex-
pressed the belief that women) had
been more wary of violating the law
and that repeal had increased the
indulgents among women for this
Despite the widespread popularity,
of beer drinking in Ann Arbor to-
day, rye and scotch whiskey and gin
are by no means neglected by the
1937 undergraduate: The sales of
the state liquor store downtown re-
port that these three are by far the
most popular with customers from
the east of Division. The sales of
the leading liquor dispenser on State
Street manifested the same tendency,
for lie reported scotch in the lead
with gin a close second.
Dances Significant
Dances are one of the leading
provocations for the 1937 undergrad-
uate to ply himself with drink just
as they were during prohibition, one
lawyer observed. He accounted for
this phenomenon of drinking by say-
ing they provided a good excuse 'to
drink because they were boring oth-
erwise and that this proceedure often
developed into a habit.
He expressed the futility of laws
to change such behavior and said
that during prohibition and now too,
"it seems to be a generally accepted
principle that a dance is the time to
drink. If a man has been drunk three
times you may be sure that it was in
connection with three dances."

Professor Shartel advocates that
Congress pass a law compelling the
high Court justices to retire at 75
with full pay. Despite the fact that
the Constitution decrees that Federal
judges shall hold office "during good
behavior," he argues the validity of
such an act. The good behavior ten-
ure clause is not absolute, he claims,
and if Congress can lay down rules
(such as age requirements) govern-
ing appointments given to the Pres-
ident and Senate without strings in
an equally absolute clause by the
Constitution) it can lay them down
for retirement.
Professor Shartel
But Constitutional or iot, Professor
Shartel thinks his plan will have
the effect of getting enough so-called
conservative justices off the bench to
allow the President to appoint men
who will uphold New Deal legislation.
He thinks those over 70 by April 11-
they will include Chief Justice
Hughes and Justices Sutherland, Mc-
Reynolds, Vandevanter and Brandeis
-would be so embarrassed that they
would resign rather than contest ac-
tion by the new justices requiring
them to show reason why' they should.
Or, even if they should contest it in
a District .of Columbia Court, where
such action would have to start, Pro-
fessor Shartel points out that they
would be extremely unlikely to sit on
a case involving themselves. If they
did not, Justices Car-doza and Stone,
New Deal supporters, might well be
expected to uphold the act of Con-
gress-if it can be upheld at all-
and left to oppose it would be the
New Deal opponents, Justices Butler
