Freedom
jPavilion
N EW YORKS and Grover Whalen's
World's Fair -opened Sunday with all
the flourish such an occasion demands. The
Prsident, himself said that April 30 would hence-
forth be known for two reasons, for Washing-
ton's inauguration as first president and for the
opening of the Fair. Mayor La Guardia, in
short Oxford gray morning coat and familiar
black sombrero, explained as he began his speech
dedicating the Plaza of the Four Freedoms, that
he had changed his attire, because "I just can't
get myself to talk about freedom in a cutaway
coat and a high hat." He said, too, he felt.it the
greatest honor that he had been designated to
dedicate the Plaza which he considered the heart
of the Fair.
There was one exhibit which didn't open with
the Fair, an exhibit quite in keeping with the
spirit of the Plaza of the Four Freedoms. It was
to have included an art gallery and a Hall of
Science, in which the contributions of Pre-Nazi
Germany in medicine, chemistry, religion, educa-
tion and anthropology were to have been exem-
plified by means of charts. photographs and
working models of German electrical and
mechanical achievements. Special concerts, lec-
tures and readings were to have been given with
such speakers as Max Reinhardt, Lotte Lehman,
Bruno Walter, Thomas Mann and Dorothy
Thompson. The works of authors now banned in
Germany were to have beendisplayed, viz:
Mann, Albert Einstein, Sigmund Freud, Erich
Maria Remarque and Stephen Zweig.
The pamphlet which was prepared to explain
the purpose of the Freedom Pavilion read as
follows:
"What there will not be is the propaganda of
denunciation-in the sense of burning effigies or
violent exhibits. But every quiet book-every fine
name on that roster-every Viennese fiddler in
the cafe-the very fact that the whole under-
taking is sponsored and created by groups of
men and woman of all politics, of all faiths,
Catholics, Jews, Protestants, working together
in harmony and respect--
"All of that will be propaganda-forthright
and creative. Call it propaganda--call it human
protest--call it what you will. Americans will
understand it."
Americans won'ti, have a chance to understand
it now. The space is too brief to go into the whys
and wherefores, but in last week's Nation a
pretty story of polite stabs in the back and neat-
ly executed double-crossing is told. It seems that
an energetic little committee headed by Dr.
Frank Kingdon, president of Newark University,
relied upon Herbert Bayard Swope, president
of General Electric, to help it raise finances
because he was a very influential person and a
democrat and all that. And that after a while
he became luke-warm and thought that "Free-
dom Pavilion" was antagonizing and provocative
and that l suggested that the name be "Old
Germany" with busts of Goethe and Beethoven
and Bach etc., as the exhibit, housed in a
kind of old Heidelberg Inn. And then it seems

By NORMAN KIELL
Thursday, May 4th, The Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre will celebrate its tenth birthday anni-
versary. Ten years has seen almost a mushroo3l
growth of the theatre here, so that today Ann
Arbor is recognized as the cultural center of the
mid-west. Ten years ago, when Professor Valen-
tine B. Windt cane here fresh from the class-
rooms of Chester M. Wallace at Carnegie Tech's
Drama Department, he found himself without a
theatre to work in, anamolous as the case may be.
Mimes occupied the Lab Theatre; the auditorp
ium in University Hall with a seating capacity
of 3,000 had been condemned; and the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre had not as yet been built.
But Professor Windt needed a theatre. For seven
weeks, the enthusiastic students who gathered
around Mr. Windt, washed, scrubbed, and cleaned
the dirt and grime that had collected in thl
University Hall Auditorium over the years of its
disuse. Anxiously, they called in the local fire
chief in order to get his permission to reopen
the theatre. That important official gave them
the good word on the proviso that no more than
two hundred people be in the theatre at the
same time and that there be no admission
charge.
The enthusiastic group, now christened Play
Production, opened with Rachel Crothers' "Little
Journey."There were two sets in the show: one,
the interior of a Pullman, the other, a mountain
top. People who remember it say it violated every
principle of stage craft-because of lack of
material. Supplies were limited; there was a
limited income; and the shows were free. Never-
theless, "Little Joureny" was a success because
of the ensemble playing and the enthusiasm
and sincerity of the youthful actors. The Uni-
versity Hall Players were a definite hit.
Their next show was even more ambitious. It
was Tolstoi's "Redemption." The crowds grew
to such proportions that five more shows were
presented during the course of that first year
in order to give everybody a chance to see their
work.
Be ggar On Horseback' First Show
By May, in 1929, The Lydia Mendelssohn The-
atre was completed and Play Production's first
show there was "Beggar On Horseback." With it,
Play Production's popularity and following grew
to such proportions that the opportunity was
offered them to continue their work during the
summer session of the University school year.
The first summer, with a small staff, Mr.
Windt and Chester Wallace put on seven plays,
calling their acting group The Michigan Reper-
tory Players. They did so well that during the
following summers they were able to invite actors
and directors who brought with them a knowledge
of the professional theatre, a new point of view,
and invaluable contacts. These included Lennox
Robinson, the Irish playwright; Thomas Wood
Stevens, of the Carnegie Institute of Technology
Drama School; Alexander Wycoff and Evelyn
Cohen, both of the Yale School of Drama; Fran-
cis Compton, Oswald Marshall, and during the
past three years, Whitford Kane, whose help
the student actors regard as one of their most
important sources of guidance and inspiration.
Five Productions A Year
During the regular university year, Play Pro-
duction has put on an average of five produc-
tions. In March,. 1934, Prof. Windt presented the
first production in which the School of Music
and the Department of Physical Education joined
forces with the drama group. It was Gilbert and
Sullivan's "The Gondoliers." The immediate re-
sponse and approval accorded it, both by the
community at large and the participating stu-
dents, was convincing evidence of the value of
this cooperation. "The Gondoliers" set a new
standard for campus musicals' in spontaneity,
grace of movement, and acting ability.
Since then, "Tolanthe," "A Midsummer Night's
Dream," "Yeoman of the Guard," "Ruddigore,"
"Henry the Eeighth," and "Two Gentlemen of
Verona," among others, have utilized the services
of the University Symphony Orchestra, voices
from the University Choral Union, and the dance
group from the Department of Physical Educa-
tion, all to tremendous success, and thus making
possible the extension of the study of theatre art
in these several branches.
It was in Ann Arbor that the idea of an annual
spring dramatic festival was born. In 1930, when
the legitimate theatre was at its lowest ebb,
Robert Henderson promoted the idea of a spring

season. True enough, it was not an original idea
but it was a new idea for America. And that it
was a good idea is quite apparent when we mote
that the attendance of the five-week season num-
bers 30,000.
Dramatic Festival Brings Crowds
People from Detroit, Toledo, Cleveland, Jack-
son, Lansing, Grand Rapids, and other towns,
are attracted by the bills. The first season
brought here Sophocles' "Antigone," revivals of
Wilde's "Lady Windemere's Fan," and Tchekov's
"The Sea-gull," John McGowan's "Excess Bag-
gage," and Kaufman and Ferber's "The Royrgi
Family." Highlights of following seasons were
the presentation of Blanche Yurka in Sophocles'
"Elektra," and Nazimova, with Romney Brent
and McKay Morris in the much-discussed reviv-
al of "Ghosts," both later successfully brought
to Broadway.
This spring season will see the American pre'
miere of Giradoux's "No War in Troy!" which.
stars Philip Merivale, and which may prove to
be next year's winner of the Drama Critic's
Circle award for the best foreign play. At any
rate, we do have this year's best foreign play,
Paul Vincent Carroll's "The White Steed," in
which Whitford Kane will take the role he had
beforeth e show Anoed in New r ni.r ' 'P'h .

The Editor
Gets Told

Moon Over The Law School
To the Editor:
Monday night, I spent fifteen ninutes enjoy--
ing the breath taking beauty of the most glorious
sight on the campus of the University of Michi-
gan-full moon over the Law Library, seen from
the center arch of the Law Club. That scene is
the most inspiring sight I have ever seen and I
have seen many beautiful things. I can look at
the pillars of Angell Hall and walk by unmoved;
I can look at the Rackham School of Graduate
Studies and feel pleased; but when I look at the
Law Library in the moonlight, with the warm
orange lights lightly brushing the large windows
from the inside, and the entire scene looking like
a magnificent cathedral, I feel a deep pride in
being a student of the University of Michigan.
That one sight makes me understand why men
sing, "I'll ne'er forget my college days," and have
a deep, true loyalty to a group of old red brick
buildings and a great number of men, "educa-
tors," who say, "Here's a lot of knowledge. If you
want it, absorb it by yourself. If not, it doesn't
make any difference to us." During the day, I am
never disturbed by such thoughts of loyalty.
Why did so many students shoulder their way
past me Monday night with their eyes to the
ground? And why does the management of the
Law Library keep the six large, brilliant lights on
the front steps glaring until one or two o'clock
in the morning?
May not those of us who want to appreciate
the great beauty of this glorious scene in its full-
est beauty be allowed to do so without having to
be blinded by these absolutely useless lights?
Why cannot these lights be put out at least by
half past eleven o'clock on these brilliant, moon-
light nights? Let's all see this magnificent sight
in its fullest beauty-without those six useless
lights.
--Charles A. Bowen, '41.
The Repulse Remains
Britain's decision to have the King and Queen
travel to America in a passenger liner instead
of in the battle cruiser Repulse marks an inter-
esting move in the naval chess game now going on
in European waters. Repulse is one of three ships
of the Renown class of British battle cruisers, the
only vessels of their type anywhere in the world.
The other two, Hood and Renown, are laid up foi'
overhaul. There are faster ships afloat than
Repulse, and heavier one. But none of the faster
ships are heavy -enough to withstand her broad-
sides, and none of the heavier ones are fast
enough to catch her. No wonder Britain feels
that a ship with the strategic blending of :speed
and power this twenty-three-year-old battle
cruiser combines is wothing having around at
the moment!

Hats --
For years the college man has been the sar
tonial example of American ,youth. You can'T
meet a clothing salesman or onen a magazine
without hearing that such and such is "very col-
legiate." Probably this is rightly so. Not only
are college men supposed to have the money and
means of contacting the latest styles, but they
will also wear anything anywhere-the hallowed
right of the American undergraduate. This com-
bination of prestige and color makes the styles.
So the college man sails blithely on setting the
styles and having a whale of a time doing it. But
in one department he is giving the American
public the double-cross with a vengeance. There
isn't one college man in ten that realizes the
importance of hats in the college man's ward-
robe. Looking at the average college man, you
find that the hat is sort of a last minute addi-
tion, tossed on after the rest of the wardrobe is
complete with no conception whatsoever of the
effect of the general appearance.

couragement and experience for all the young
writers, actors, directors, and designers who
must carry the living theatre on into the future.
We may, for instance, seek to promote festivals
on midwestern and western campuses. The
Dramatist's Guild has already been active in
proioting efforts to bridge the traditional gap
between the commercial theatre and the college
stage."
What is being talked of only now in New York
has been going on in Ann Arbor since 1930. In its
ten years of existence, The Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre has been the host to nearly 1,000 presen-
tations ranging from tIj Chinese Gate Theatre
to the works of Sophocles, Shakespeare and
Shaw. In other words, nearly 100 productions a
year are seen on the stage of the Lydia Mendels-
sohn Theatre, and this does not include the
foreign films which are presented.
This is the history of the Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre, and in the history of this theatre, we
have seen the life* forces of the cultural center
of the midwest at full and enthusiastic work. Ann
Arbor has every reason to be proud of its Uni-
versity Theatre background. It has been building
steadily for the future American National
Theatre.

TODAY
in WASHINGTON
-by David Lawrence -
WASHINGTON May 1.-Dr. Gal-
lup's latest poll, showing that the
typical cross-section of public opinion
interviewed believes a Republican vic-
tory is coming in 1940, certainly re-
flects a growing confidence here
among Republicans. To put it another
way, it reflects also a growing appre-
hension among the Democrats.
Allowing for the fact, how' ver, that
pendullums do swing in American
politics, the chances of intervening
events affecting the 1940 election are
well recognized. The Democrats have
as their one best bet a possible eco-
nomic recovery or upswing, but the
present Congress has not yet tackled
the things that are deterring recov-
ery, and the Republicans, with the
characteristic attitude of a minority
party, are not hurrying things along.
It's just about a year now to the
time when the two national party
conventions will be getting under
way. In twelve months, some things,
of course, can be done to turn a
political tide, but, when deep cur-
rents set ilf, the task is not easy. The
Republicans at the moment have
the better outlook for many reasons,
principal among which is that the
Democrats are fighting among them-
selves. The prospects of internal peace
are remote because the extremists
among the New Dealers feel that the
other side should come the whole
way, and the independent Democrats
in Congress feel that the Administra-
tion is grudgingly giving an inch
where it ought to give a foot
lle(dquarters Ef icient l
Anyway, the Republicans are
secretly rejoicing because thy have
unparalleled harmony in their ranks
and their organization work is func-
tioning smoothly. Take the Republi-
can national committee headquar-
ters. It is in efficient operation de-
spite the discouragements that faced
it in 1936. John Hamilton has turned
out to be a capable general manager
and has brought order, out of chaos.
He has learned that it is not speech-
making or keynoting which is impor-
tant, but laying the foundations for
effective party organization in the
states and counties of the country.
He has, moreover, reorganized the
finances so that no longer do a few
large contributors rule the roost, but
there are thousands of small con-
tributors. The Republicans have made
their greatest inroads among the
small business men and the workers
in the middle class and have recov-
ered a good bit of the strength they
once had in the rural areas.
Party organization is not a mystic
affair. Hard work and perserverance
and tact will build a loyal party oper-
ation, and it was a fortunate thing
for the Republicans that Mr. Ham-
ilton didn't listen to the defeatists
when the 1936 election was over, but
started instead to wipe out the deficit
and build a permanent party mech-
anism. When the time comes for
platform making, the country will
find, for instance, that the Glenn
Frank committee will have a greater
influence in making the party pro-
gram progressive than has been sus-
pected by the ultra-conservatives.
Perhaps the most effective piece of
work done by Chairman Hamilton
has been to bring about close cooper-
ation between his headquarters and
the members of Congress. In this,
the Republicans are copying the suc-
cessful experience of Democratic
headquarters in the days of the
Hoover Administration. Certainly, so
far as minority tactics are concernet,
the Republicans are not missing many.
bets.
Capable Mataer

The Democratic Party organization,
on the other hand, is under a severe
handicap. Charles Michelson, able
publicity director, no longer has the
field to himself, as Frank Waltman,
Republican director of publicity, is a
good match for him. It is only fair
to say, however, that, if Mr. Michel-
son were in charge of the party or-
ganization himself, he would do a
much better job than he is able to
do now. For he is a capable political
manager. But it so happens that the
chairman of the Democratic nation-
al committee, James Farley, is being
talked about as a candidate for the
Democratic nomination for President
or Vice-President. No party organi-
zation with a potential candidate at
thc helm can do as effective work as
when it has as leader a man who is
clearly out of personal politics and
has only the task of keeping the
party together.
The same enthusiasm which Jimr
Farley had in 1932 and 1936 is nec-
essarily lacking today, because the
party organizations are composed in
no small part of federal office hold-
ers who want to go along with the
New Deal, but inside the ranks are
anti-New Dealers who follow the same
line of policy as some of the inde-
pendent Democrats in Congress.
What is happening to the Demo-
cratic Party organization is neither
surprising nor unusual. It always de-
velops inside a majority party, especi-
