gerous to export any commodity while owned
by Americans, why is it less dangerous to let
any commodity be transported by Americans?
This contradiction can only be construed as a
concession to the shipowners. Shipowners as a
class, as well as their employes, would be injured
by such legislation. Compensation for this loss
should be forthcoming. If legislation for keeping
this country out of war cau es an economic loss,
the entire nation should bear that loss.
This is not all: through oversimplification, the
complex problem of transshipment to bellig-
gerents of materials originally exported to other
neutrals is handled merely by declaring such
procedure illegal. It is practically impossible
to prove whether or not materials shipped to
other neutrals will be forwarded to a belligerent.
If, however, the volume of trade with a certain
neutral increases substantially after war has
begun there can be no doubt.
Thus the only way to prevent transshipment
is through some sort of quota system which would
restrict exports to other neutrals to a peacetime
Is such a quota system practicable? This is
the point upon which turns the entire value of a
policy of isolation. For a quota system must also
be applied 'to trade with belligerent nations-
even though such trade is based upon a "cash
and carry" system.
One of the most powerful influences that
drew America into the World War was the well-
based fear that financial panic, followed by a
severe depression would result from the interrup-
tion of our booming trade with the Allies. The
famous telegram to Wilson, from the ambassador
to England, expressing these two alternatives-
entering the war or experiencing a depression-
is sufficient evidence.
Moreover whether this country is drawn into
the war or not, depression is sure to follow upon
the cessation of hostilities. Thus we see that-
upon the success or failure of a quota system
lies the success or failure of isolation.
To enact an isolation policy before this prob-
lem has been solved would be to invite destruc-
tion through a false sense of security.

The Court Fight
OUT OF THE FOG of debate over President
Roosevelt's juldiciary reorganization plan
came the first promise of action when the Sen-
ate Judiciary Committee announced that hear-
ings on the bill would begin March 9.
New Deal members of the House promised the
President that his measure would find adequate
support in the lower chamber. In the Senate
the forces appear more evenly matched, but
supporters of the bill are content to have it
meet its most severe test first.
This week's compromise suggestion came from
Senator Borah. The Idaho veteran asked an
amendment which would remove from the states
restrictions imposed by the "due process" clause
of the Fourteenth Amendment, and guarantee
freedom to legislate on social and economic mat-
ters. After a group of progressive senators had
conferred with the President last week-end,
however, observers gathered from guarded state-
ments that the White House was little inclined to

ee Bill, II.. .

* . * *


Pittman resolution (or Peace Act
f 1937) was outlined and its departure from a
raditional "neutrality" policy of insistence on
freedom of the seas" applauded.
The bill makes. no attempt to realize peace
hrough "collective security"; it consciously ne-
lects "neutrality" in its abstract international
egal sense; it says that we are basing our hopes
or peace on isolation and nothing else. Yet it is
lot a fair test of isolationism. It is incomplete;
t shows the ravages wrought by various "inter-
sts" in composing a compromise measure.
If an isolationist policy is to prove conclusively
vhether or not isolation can keep America out
if war, it must be built along three lines. These
hree aims, derived from the sad experience of
he World war, are: (1) to prevent the loss of
kmerican life and property on the high seas;
2) to prevent the linking of American financial
nterests with the victory of one side through
he extension of loans or credit;' (3) to prevent
Wartime boom in trade, which makes our con-
inued prosperity dependent on the continuation
f warfare (in which case any threat to the
var boom means a panic and depression).
Of these three, the Pittman resolution attacks
he first two weakly and neglects the third.
The bill attemrpts to build a "bomb proof .c1-
ar" and leave it roofless:
For example, section three of the bill provides
hat no loans or extension of credit 'may be
nade to belligerent governmenuts but no .men-
ion is made of extension of credit to the na-
lonals of belligerent nations. In view of the
act that most of the loans of the period 1914-
917 were made to private individuals and not
overnments, the concession to "the. money
enders" is almost unbelievable.
Even if it were not more important to preventA
xtension of credit to Krupp than to the Ger-
nan government (for example) this provision
nakes evasion of its ruling exceedingly simple.
?or what is to prevent nationals of belligerent
ountries from borrowing money from Americans
,nd in turn lending- that money to their govern-
The resolution purports to embody the so-
alled cash and carry principle in Section 2, thus
reventing the loss of American life and property
in the high seas.
The "cash" part of the act is certainly included
vhen provision is made that export or trans-
ort of All commodities to belligerents shall be
inlawful until all right and interest therein
as been transferred out of the hands of Amer-
can nationals.
But what of the "carry" provision? There is
o mandatory prohibition of the transport of
oods to belligerents in American vessels, manned
y American seamen. Materials like cotton, oil,
teel, and others. which will iundoubte~dly be de-

the plants after a gas barrage by police, who

TWO OPPOSED views around which disagree-
ment over a neutrality bill has centered since
the Italo-Ethiopian war thrust the problem to
the front were still the pre-eminent stumbling
blocks to agreement last week as one neutrality
resolution was reported to the Senate and an-
other to the House. The Pittman measure, in
the Senate, outlines a program of mandatory ac-
tion by the President to prevent .war-time en-
tanglements. The McReynolds measure would
allow the President to chart a rather independent
course. With sponsors of each confident of sup-
port from their own chamber, an inevitable clash
in the conference committee is seen, and no one
can say what neutrality policy the President
may be asked to approve.

throughout the country the proclamation of this
party's creed was spread by radio, pamphlet,
and poster and the people were urged to join.
Vaguely worded, possibly, some believe, to at-
tract as many recruits as possible, the program
provides for: (1) executive dominance, as estab-
lished by the 1935 constitution, (2) preferment
to the army as the nation's great uniting force,
(3) privilege and protection for the Catholic
Church, (4) tolerance of other creeds, (5) gov-

ernment control of production when necessary
for national defense and reemployment, and
government control of employer-emploee rela-

Tatterman's 'Peer Gynt'
William Duncan and Edward Mabley
present The Tatterman Marionettes in
Henrick Ibsen's dramatic poem PEER
GYNT. Text translated by William and
Charles Archer. Music by Edvard Grieg.
Production designed by Terence Von
Duren, staged by William Duncan, di-
rected by Edward Mabley. Marionettes
carved by Roy Patton. Music by the
University Symphony Orchestra, Earl V.
Moore, conductor.
WITHOUT any doubt the experi-
ment of doing Peer Gynt with
marionettes instead of living actors
would seem to be well worth trying.
After seeing it carefully produced by
the Tatterman Marionettes it still
seems to have been an experiment
worth trying but one only successful
to a rather limited degree. The play,
though full of the sort of fantasy
that puppets can usually do so well,
is conceived on too large a scale for
the puppets to be effective. One
feels throughout the lack of living
actors for which at best the ma-
rionettes seem to be only a substitu-
tion. This is partly due to the way
the actor-puppeteers played their
parts. They gave full strong per-
formances, no doubt necessary to the
play, but this always seemed to call
attention to the fact that the actors
one saw were only dolls.
Also, the playing of the Grieg mu-
sic by a large orchestra threw- the
production off balance-made the
audience still more aware of the lack
of human characteristics in the pup-
pets. It was a delight to hear Grieg's
music as played by the University
Symphony Orchestra but it seemed
separate from what was happening
or had happened on the stage. It
was successful, of course, in capturing
mood, but failed when it accompanied
action on the stage. For example, in
Anitra's dance and in the conclusion
of the Troll Hall scene, the action on
the stage seemed puny and ineffec-
tive because of the contrast between
the force of the orchestra and the
delicacy of the stage action.
But this does not mean that the
production was completely unin-
teresting or that there were not ex-
cellent moments. There were many
effective bits throughout the per-
formance. The last scene was espe-
cially moving. So was Ase's death
scene-due to the fine performance
by the actress-puppeteer who played
the part.
The performances were uniformly
good. It was not execution but con-
ception, rather, that was at fault, and
the difficulties inherent in the prob-
lem. The scenery, costumes, design
and execution of the marionettes was
always effective from the point of
view of what the producers seemed to
be trying to do. There should have
been more pure marionette treatment
like the moment where Peer and the
Green-Clad Woman ride away. on the
It seems ungracious to point out
these faults in a production as sin-
cere and as well-executed as this one.
Some of the faults were due to the
inherent difficulties in the experi-
ment of transferring Peer Gynt to the
puppet theatre and could not be real-
ized until the transfer had actually
been made.

Maid Of Salem
HERE IS A PICTURE that is out of the ordi-
nary. It's scene is Salem, 1692; its prin-
cipal characters, a puritan Massachusetts maiden
and a Virginia rebel; its theme-witchcraft.
These elements are combined with careful pro-
duction and capable actors-the net result is a
good motion picture, but not an epic.
Barbara, a girl in the puritan settlement is
living her routined life until she meets a fugitive
from Virginian justice. Of course, love buds
and the rebel leaves Barbara until he can come
back to her with a cleared name. Then the
.main action of the story develops-the witch
scare is on. It rises in intensity until even Bar-
bara is condemned as a practitioner of the art.
But of course our hero from Virginia comes to
the rescue.
To me, there is a great deal of power in a
certain portion of the picture-it is in the manner
in which the witch hysteria is built up. There is
a child whose participation in the story is
similar to that of the problem child in "The
Children's Hour." Watch for this child, and
notice the excellence of the treatment of her
psychological motivation.
