Critic Doubts
Shakespeare's
Tr .e Identity

pest or Coriolanus could have
been written, Prof. Price said.,
"And, he wrote very stupid verse."
Cranks are always coming up
with new authors for Shakes-
peare, according to Prof. Price.
Miss Julia Bacon 100 years ago'
proposed that Shakespeare's
works were a sideline of Bacon's
literary production. "That idea
fizzled- out long ago," he said.
Prof. Price declared that docu-
ments, friends like Jonson and
Marlowe, clues in the plays, and
thinking professors agree that
Shakespeare's plays and sonnets
were, are, and will remain written
by a Stratford man named
Shakespeare.
"THE OLDEST WAY to make
money is to write a sensational
story ' about Shikespeare," he
said; "-but stay with him."
He cited the case of Sydney Lee,
a successful Shakespeare biogra-
pher, whom Edward VII persuad-
ed to write a biography of Queen
Victoria. Edward remarked gentlya
after it was written, "Stick to
Shakespeare, Mr. Lee, that pays."
Sticking to Shakespeare
means believing that Shakes-
peare was really Shakespeare,
Prof. Price said.
"I worked up positive proof of
Oxford's identity as distinguished
from Shakespeare's," he said, "but'
it was so unimportant I've forgot-
ten it."

ELONGATED ABE:
Lincoln Provided Tempting
Tar get for 'Punch' Cartoonist

Fourscore and three years ago
Sir John Tennien decided Abe
Lincoln was not such a bad fellow
after all.
Until the assassination, how-
ever, Sir John, cartoonist for
Pundlh, a contemporary British
magazine, had wielded a satyric
quill over Lincoln's political moves,
County Official
Would 'Clear'
WillowVillage
Plan Urges Building
Perlmanent Homes
A recent recommendation by
George D. Hurrell, director of the
Washtenaw County Planning
Commission that Willow Village,
as such, should be cleared away
may eventually effect the housing
of some 1,700 students living in
the government owned housing
project.
Hurrell advocated that the pres-
"t buildings and dormitories be
replaced by one and two-family
homes and businesses. Although
he made no specific proposals on
the question, he indicated that he
felt that the Village's present
"emergency" housing status
should be changed to that of a
regular residential area.
ALTHOUGH NO action of Hur-
rell's proposals will probably be
taken for some time, it might con-
ceivably cause an acute housing
problem for some of the 1,300
married students and 400 single
students living in the Village. un-
less the present housing problem
in Ann Arbor is solved in the fu-
ture.
Originally the Willow Village
housing units were built to ac-
commodate some of the thous-
ands of workers employed at the
Wil1°w Run bomber plant dur-
ing the war.
After the worker housing prob-
lcm became less acute. the govern- II-
ment provided approximately 2,-
200 housing units for veterans at-
tending the University.

The annual Red Cross drive for

Fund raising activities which
are expected to yield over $34,000

Colton Storm, assistant director
of Clements Library, related.
LINCOLN, in one of the car-
toon proof sheets owned by the
Clements Library, was caricatured
as a raccoon in a tree with "John
Bull" below threatening to shoot
if he did not come down.
It referred to the Trent af-
fair in which England demand-
ed that Lincoln give up Mason
and Slidell, two Confederate
ambassadors, which the North
seized from the English ship
Trent, Storm explained. The
idea came from a Davy Crockett
story, he added.
A swashbuckling Abe is mixing
"bunkum, bosh, and brag" to turn
victory into defeat in another of
Sir John's jabs...
IMMEDIATELY following his
second election, Sir John draws an
elongated Abe captioned "Long
Abe Lincoln A Little Longer."
But following the assassina-
tion Sir John suffered a mirac-
ulous change of heart,. Storm
said.
His 'final Lincoln cartoon por-
trayed a reverent Britain mourn-
ing for the Civil War president
whose 140th birthday we com-
memorate today.
These cartoons among several
others will be televised at 5 p.m.
tomorrow over WWJ-TV in a pro-
gram on "Lincoln Humor" with
Assistant Director Storm and Ken
Manuel of WWJ.

P lan ,Meeting
To Orientate
011i Politics
Alphabet Groups Will
ExplainOrganizations'
In an attempt to acquaint stu-
dents with the range of political
j clubs on campus and their prin-
,iples and accomplishments, a Po-
litical Orientation Meeting will
take place next Tuesday evening.
The meeting is focused primar-
ily on new freshman and transfer
students who are interested in po-
litical activities but may have be-
ome understandably bewildered
ay their alphabet nomenclature.
* * *
IT WILL CONSIST of a talk
by Preston Slosson, of the history
department, short explanations of
the clubs by their officers, and
then the meeting will be thrown
open to the audience for ques-
tions.
The organizations which will
participate include the follow-
ing partisan and political ac-
tion group: Americans for Dem-
ocratic Action, American Vet-
erans Committee, Inter-Racial
Association, United Nations
Council, United World Federal-
ists, Wallace Progressives, the
Young Democrats and the
Young Republicans.
The Political Orientation Pro-
;ram has been initiated this se-
mnester, and is being sponsored by.
ADA. They hope it will become an
annual or semi-annual tradition
introducing the political clubs to
new students an encouraging par-
ticipation in political action clubs.
"THIS PROGRAM is designed
to provide a convenient meeting-
ground for interested students and
ampus political leaders,"stated
Quentin Fulcher, chairman of
ADA.
The 'meeting will be held Tues-
day, Feb. 15 at 7:30 p.m. at the
Michigan League. All students in-
terested. in political activity on
uampus are cordially invited and
urged to attend.

"READING WAS a big activity,
and everyone could do it," Dr.
Lovell said. "Anything requiring
arm motion was discouraged to al-
low complete rest."
Treatment given the confined
patients consisted of arresting
the progress of the disease and
give the body a chance to over-
come and wall off the infection.
After the disease is halted, Dr.
Lovell said, the T. B. victim can
lead a fairly normal life, though
still needing daily rest.
In his two years as a T. B. pa-
tient, Dr. Lovell spent most pe-
riods of his time in discussion
with his roommates-a Chinese
chest doctor, a Turkish engineer,
and a former classmate in medi-
cal school.
He also worked up a corre-
spondence with people in 15 dif-
ferent countries.

INovel BigBrother Sentence
Helps Delinquent Youngsters

i

Four Ann Arbor boys who might
have been in reform school today
are free instead, and looking for-
ward to a future of worthwhile
fun and respect for the law, under
the guidance of newly acquired
"big brothers."
For this, they can thank the
wisdom and sympathy of Probate.
Judge Jay H. Payne, who placed
the boys under probation, in
charge of four Ann Arbor men
who will serve as the big brothers.
The men were appointed special
probationary officers for a year.
EACH MONTH they will meet
with the boys, who admitted cadg-
iog several automobile ornaments
recently at the Elks parking lot.
T'he meetings will be purely recre-
ational.
Already planned are a party
at a school in the boys' neigh-

only a few days before January 25,
when tlie parking lot thefts took
place.
One of the program's aims, said
Judge Payne, is to achieve volun-
tary parental cooperation when
obviously stolen items are brought
into the home, rather than over-
looking the thefts as childish
pranks.
