Lyons Dubs 'LITTLE EYOLF:
News naners Elcar Brothers Cast by Arts Theatre
"Most newspapers tend to have
a monotonous sameness, due to
using the same news, columnists,
and features," Louis Lyons charged
yesterday in the third of a series
of Journalism Lectures at the
Lyons, author and curator of
the Nieman Foundation at Har-
vard University, said that mono-
polistic practices have made the
newspaper business extremely uni-
form and mechanical.
THE TREND toward mass-re-
porting and writing, he went on,
accounts in some measure for the
decreasing number of reliable
newspapers and the reduction of
some communities to one-paper
"Many papers have shrunk
back to regionalism, relying on
wire services for anything more
than local news," Lyons claimed.
This can be traced to the fact
that local advertisers depend on
sales in the community, and
hesitate to support a paper that
doesn't cater to local interests,
It is because of such economic
problems that the tendency toward
uniformity has arisen, Lyons de-
clared. Devices similar to the
Associated Press Teletypesetter,
which not only sends the news but
sets the stories up for print, are
destroying the individuality of the
"IT IS THE responsibility of the
present 'generation of newspaper-
men and women to restore the old
tradition of 'Energy, Vigor, Vital-
ity and Variety' to the field of
journalism," he explained.
The Elcars, a new family acting
team to rival the Barrymores and
Lunts, will take to the Arts The-
atre Club's stage in the group's
next play, "Little Eyolf".;
Twelve year old Jim Elcar will
join big brother, Dana, in the Ib-
sen play as Dana's son, Eyolf.

JIM, WHO is the envy of his sr
classmates because "I got to miss
four weeks of school," explained
that on stage "I am a crippled
boy who is not supposed to like
my mother because she never paid
any attention to me-it's my aunt
"It was kinda hard to learn
my lines," confessed Jim, whose
only other acting experience was
in a grammar school Christmas
"In spite of the newness of a
"big play," as Jim calls "Little'
Eyolf," he is doing exceptionally
well," director Strowan Robertson<
said. But blond haired Jim has.
no theatrical aspirations.

In the third Cook lecture yes-
terday, Prof. Howard Mumford
Jones explained the origins of the
American theory that the pursuit
of happiness is a social aim.
Speaking on "The Pursuit of
Happiness," Prof. Jones, Harvard
Univerity English professor, at-
tributed the theory to the early
idea that North America is a land
without monopolists, restrictions,
"By the third quarter of the
18th century," he said, "it was
universally understood that the
New World was a happy, happy
land, a model territory under a
He gave as an example of an
attempt to preserve this happi-
ness, the phrase, "the pursuit of
happiness" in the Declaration of
Prof. Jones concluded by quoting
Sir William Blackstone, author of
"Commentaries on the Laws of
England" who believed that the
aim of government is to protect
"Whenever any form of Govern-
ment becomes destructive of these
ends, it is the Right of the People
to alter or abolish it."
I SAYE T/ME S
"SURE, THIS is a lot of fun,"
he granted, "but I want to make
a career of the Navy." Pointing
with decided scorn to his white
tights and blue-and-gold sailor
suit top, Jim called the outfit
"more like a bell-hop suit than a

his lessons by the elder Elcar's
wife, does not plan to "pack" the
audience. "Just my mom and
our school janitor will probably
come," the modest actor claimed."
