Halstead Rates 'Saint Joan'
Best Play on Martyr's Life
By NAOMI STERN
"George Bernard Shaw's play
'Saint Joan' is by far the best of
the dramatizations of the life of
the French Martyr," Prof. William
Halstead, of the speech depart-

allegedly clean glasses, dirty sifver-
ware, warmed-over food, stale
cake, and "microscopic" meatl
portions. A former Army mess of-
ficer felt that the cooking of the
food is "terrible," as is the quan-
tity and quality.
"In a place connected with a
college," the former officer said,
"cleanliness should be paramount.
In other words, clean the place up
and let's have better service."
Members of the committee who
assisted Klein in distributing the
forms, in tabulating the returns
and in interpreting the results
were Robert Amos, James Rhea,
Richard Eichbauer, Charles Dray-
ton, Gayle Thompson, Virginia
Myerson, Carroll Barber, Arthur
Vogel, John Berk and Al Levinson.

The play will be presented by
the speech department's play pro-
duction classes at 8:30 p.m.
Thursday through Saturday in the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
"We had been planning to pro-
duce 'Saint Joan' for a long
time," Prof. Halstead said, ex-
plaining that he was reminded of
"Joan" while attempting to cut
Shakespeare's "Henry VI" to "act-
able length" and came across the
character of the French Saint.
Reinterprets Character r
"Shaw does much more than
merely present dramatic incidents
in Joan's life," Prof. Halstead
said. "He attempts a complete
reinterpretation of her character
taking a middle road in regard to
previous character dramatiza-
tions of her life."
Writers, such as Shakespeare,
supported the idea that Joan was
actually a witch and hinted at
scandals in their interpretations,
Prof. Halstead said. Other writ-
ers, Schiller and Mark Twain for
example, accepted Joan uncondi-
tionally as a saint and painted her
Shaw, who did much careful re-
search before he wrote his drama,
found evidence in the records of
the trials that although Joan may
have been perfectly sincere, the
trials were completely fair and
Joan, through her persistent re-
fusals to recant, left the Church
officials with no choice except ex-
communication, Prof. Halstead
"Shaw presents Joan as the
pure saint, but the priests are also
treated sympathetically," he de-
Conflicts and Struggles
"Great admiration is shown for
Joan in the play, but Shaw's in-
tellectual mind was concerned not
only with dramatizing her life but
with presenting the conflict be-
tween the Catholics and Protest-
ants and the struggle between
feudalism and nationalism in the
middle ages," Prof Halstead con-

At no time in ancient Roman
Egypt was there anything corres-
ponding to serfdom as it existed in
WesternEurope, Prof. Allan Ches-
ter Johnson said yesterday in the
fourth talk of the Jerome lecture
The Egyptian peasant had a
feudal relation to the overlord un-
der the Pharaohs, and a semi-
feudal one under the Ptolemys,
Prof. Johnson said. In the Roman
period the peasant preferred to
stay on the land as long as he
had any to cultivate, but was not
required by law to do so.
In the fourth century the large
estate had not yet developed in
Egypt, and ancient papyri give us
no information about serfdom in
the fourth and fifth centuries.
One document, a reply of peasants
to a "patron" who tried to take a
whole village under his wing, is
"certainly not in the tone of serfs
to their master," Prof. Johnson
In the sixth century there were
two types of "coloni" or cultivat-
ors -of the soil, Prof. Johnson ex-
plained. Some peasants were
bound to the soil, their property
belonged to their master and they
never became free. The other
type wasaalsounder obligation
to cultivate the soil, but their
property was their own and they
