Of Fair Deal
Dems Will Push
Plans, Says Prof.
By BOB VAUGHN
Results of the recent elections
will be interpreted by the Truman
administration as an endorsement
of the Fair Deal, according to
Prof. Thomas S. Barclay, visiting
professor of political science from
"The administration will no
doubt proceed to press strongly its
progress in the second session of
the 81st Congress," he said.
"GRANTS to organized and re-
lentless minority pressure groups
will be especially emphasized," he
The bitterly controversial civil
rights program, federal aid to
education and medical care will
be important matters for con-
sideration, Prof. Barclay point-
"In many cases in the north and
the east, the alliance of the Demo-
cratic Party with organized labor
THIS WILL be a significant fac-
tor in preparation for the 1950
Congressional elections, Prof. Bar-
"The Truman policy will con-
tinue the existing agreement
with labor and other urban
groups, and will attempt to gain
as much, support from agricul-
ture as possible," he commented.
"This strategy presents a diffi-
cult problem-for the Republicans."

THE REPUBLICANS will make
a special effort to regain in 1950
the 47 congressional districts lost
to the Democrats last year, Prof.
"These districts were lost by a
margin of only five per cent of
the total vote," he said.
"Spirited contests for the U.S.
Senate will also be waged in ap-
proximately twelve states," he add-
Prof. Barclay has actively par-
ticipated in state and national
politics for the last twenty years.

objects is being overshadowed by
the new idea of hand knit neck-

making the ties as interesting to

'MAN VS. NATURE':
Challenging the "foolish myth"
that man and nature are enemies,
Prof. George R. Kernodle, of the
University of Iowa's School of Fine
Arts, yesterday called on future
dramatists to show man in a new
relation to nature.
Playwrights of the last 50 years
have taken their cue from Dar-
winism, he said - they have writ-
ten plays about people who try
in vain to escape from the hope-
lessly tangled web of their envir-
IN A RACKHAM Amphitheatre
lecture he cited Gorky's "The
Lower Depths," O'Neill's "The Ice-
man Cometh," and Galsworthy's
"Escape" as examples of this idea.
But nature is not necessarily
opposed to man, Prof. Kernodle
said. "Actually, you can find as
much evidence of kindness in
nature as you can of t'ooth-and-
He emphasized the need for "an,
orientation between man and na-
ture" in order to obtain "a new
realism" in the arts.

A FEW PLAYS and playwrights
have begun to reverse the domi-
nant pessimistic trend of 20th
century dramatic thinking, he de-
William Saroyan, "a deeply
philosophic and religious per-
son," has showed that man's
dreams are important, and that
"what he dreams he can create."
'"Tobacco Road' is a wise play,
because it reinforces man's sense
of belonging to the earth - al-
though it demonstrates that he is
not equal to nature."

But by and large, 20th century
plays have told of man's frus-
tration and defeat in the fight
for his dreams against the cold
realities of life, Prof. Kernodle
The dramatic myths of the "lit-
le man" or "moron" and the "ape
man," much used in plays of the
1920's and 30's, grew out of this

bols, they represent those men
who lose their individualism in the
vastness of today's great city life.
As samples, Prof. Kernodle cited
the glorification of the "little
man" in "Of Thee I Sing" and the
characterization of the "ape man"
-the "little man who learned to
bite back" - in plays like "The
Petrified Forest" and "Of Mice
