In the vortex, John Huston, '41,
the editor of the magazine, concludes
that in every age there occurs the
same mixture of lust for fighting and
horror of war. In his analysis of
pacifism he finds that its premises
are not wholly valid. War is one of
the human imperfections, he main-
tains, and is as purposeful as any
other human force.
Although war is futile, any human
accomplishment is futile in the long
run, Huston insists. From this view-
point pacifism holds out only a ray
of hope that men's minds may be

mail Khalidi, Grad., of Palestine,

of Mohammedanism. Belief in uni-

countability for human actions in an-
other existence are among the vital
parts of the Islamic system, he main-
He concluded from his study of the
pillars and cardinal principles of Is-
lam that there is little difference in
principle between Christianity and
Islam. Islam today is not only a
creed for Moslems but a brother-
hood for all religions establishe'
within its realms, he insists.
E. Erwin Bowers, '41, expresses his
sentiments on righting on foreign
soil. His chief objection is to killing

name of defense.

Here on a fellowship from the
National Theatre Conference, Jukes
is working on his doctor's degree in
speech. He has been serving as as-
sistant professor in the School of
Dramatic Art at Ohio University for
the past ten years, and was awarded
the fellowship for exceptional work
in the field of theatrical work.
'The fellowsh-ip is given through
the Conference by the Rockefeller
Foundation," Jukes explained in an
interview, "and the seven men chosen
each year are enabled to spend a
year wherever they wish in research
or study. I decided to come to Michi-
gan because one of the outstanding
dramatic courses in the country is
given here."
Besides serving as technical direc-

"'Remember the Day' will require
four complete scenes," Jukes said.
They are a hotel lobby, a schoolroom,
a school hall and a private living
room of 1910."
According to Jukes, the sets did
not present any particular difficulties
since they are all straight sets. He
