New Language Proposal

Pro...
JHE LITERARY college should be com-
mended for its thought in proposing re-
quirements of two years of language study
for liberal arts students. It has finally recog-
nized that Americans, as accepted leaders of
half the world, must become more inter-
national in their thought and has taken a
step toward removing the unfavorable im-
pression that monolinguistic tourists have
left abroad.
A thorough understanding of the peoples
who are allied with America in the cold
war and of those countries who compose
the United Nations should be required of
every student who, by his mere attend-
ance at a university, is supposed to be well
informed.
Studying the politics and history of a
specific country does not adequately impress
upon students the emotions and human
characteristics of a people. These character-
istics are best revealed through reading the
literature of a country and in speaking to
foreign peoples in their own language.
Literary translations, at best, are poor
substitutes for the original language. Indi-
vidual words often lose their entire meaning
in translation and the over-all impression of
a story or poem is almost certain to be muti-
lated when put into another language.
Ideally, students should learn languages
in elementary schools when they have more
time to practice and gain facility in a
foreign tongue, but since few elementary
schools offer such courses it is necessary
for secondary schools and colleges to fill
the language void left by the lower grades.
Course requirements of any kind should
not be needed in a liberal arts program, but
as long as the University deems it neces-
sary to require natural sciences, social
sciences and mathematics or philosophy,
they should also bajlance the program with
two years of language study.
Knowledge of at least one foreign lan-
guage is the first step toward the interna-
tional understanding needed in today's world.

NIGHT EDITOR: MIKE WOLF)'

INTERNATIONAL understanding is a nec-
essary quality for literary colleges to take
into consideration in setting up their curric-
ulum requirements. By nature, it is also
one of the most difficult to promote.
The University literary college facul-
ty's resolution of Monday to expand the
present one-year language requirement to
a two-year stretch or a proficiency equiva-
lent carries the long-range aim of better-
ing inter-ultural relations. But in spite
of the resolution's well-considered intent,
the question remains whether an extended
language requirement is the best means of
reaching the cultural internationalism.
both students and faculty members do-
or should-strive for.
Evidently, the long-range goal has not
been the main concern of literary college
faculty members' discussions on the long
bandied-about proposal. Neither has it been
the consideration behind state high schools'
?objections.
But an innovation which has as wide-
spread effect as a curriculum requirement
deserves such consideration by all involved-
faculty, high schools and quite necessari-
ly, students. In its present form, the proposal
to broaden international understanding by
increasing training in languages seems to
be a somewhat circuitous and a not uniform-
ly effective method of reaching the ob-
jective.
True, future graduates will be able to
verse beyond salutatory remarks in the
language of their choice-if they get to
Europe, and some of them will, and if they
retain the skills, which most of them won't.
There is s definite advantage in being able
to read foreign authors in their original
phraseology, but it is primarily a literary
and not a social benefit.
If curriculum planers do feel that a
course requirement is the quickest way to
an educational result, a better "must" for
this particular problem might be an inter-
national relations or a foreign policy course.
Or, considering the diversity of student ap-
titudes and goals, the most equitable solu-
tion would be a general "international un-
derstanding" course requirement, allowing
individuals to choose either language, po-
litical science or history fields as the most
applicable means of reaching the desired
goal.

GENERATION, the Inter-Arts Magazine,
Volume 4, Number 2
THE PURCHASER of the current issue of
Generation gets a lot for his money this
time around: eighty pages of student work
organized with almost professional care. The
art and the prose seem to make those jarring
intrusions on each other less often, the ad-
vertising is discreetly presented, and a
twelve-page center section printed on buff
paper helps relieve the solid monotony of
black-and-white. This section contains some
of the best work in the magazine (poetry
once more).
Let us consider the fiction first, how-
ever, since it comprises the backbone of
the issue. Again, there is an encouraging
range in technique among the five stories
printed and a fairly general competence.
As a whole, though, it cannot be said that
"Generation's" fiction this year has reach-
ed the level of previous years.
Perhaps the most thoroughly satisfactory
story in the issue is Richard Laing's "Love
Poem," a relatively unambitious, but nicely
toned "moment of revelation" story that lasts
just long enough to put its point across. Its
development is deftly handled, anc1 the gen-
eral treatment is light and subtle.
Mabelle Hsueh's "The Surprise" catches
the perceptions of a child with more than
usual skill, and retains a real charm through-
out. If the story seems a little long, the grace
of the writing in it is undeniable.
Leonard Greenbaum attempts something
exceptionally complex in his story: "Mr. Sil-
ver and Mr. Frank" and only partly brings
it off. His undertaking, to describe the
disintegration of a friendship, lacks the right
focus in that the important things in the
story do not receive proper proportional
space. The treatment is dramatically con-
vincing and well-backgrounded, but lacks
the efficiency it needs to achieve its impact.
"Bring Back My Violin," a story of Henry
Van Dyke, starts off well and contains a
definite feeling for imagery. But its theme
is depressingly standard and not developed
with any fresh significance. The final
story, Mark Goodwill's "The Spirit and
the Flesh," is almost totally incompre-
hensible, contenting itself with so many
peripheral impressions and stock gener-
alizations that the main narrative line is
smothered. A reader has to get a foothold
somewhere.
Perhaps the most rewarding contribu-
tions in the poetry section are 'Jascha Kess-
ler's "After First Love" and Harvey Gross's
"Vienna: Winter, 1952." These works ground
their imageries in far different locales but
achieve reverberating pictures of Pennsyl-
vania in August, and of Austria in winter.
New Books at the Library
Eyster, Warren-Far From the Cus-

Joseph Green's poems, in spite of their high
technical excellence, carry a uniform cold-
ness or perversity unrelieved by the gen-
uine humor of his work in the previous issue.
Both essays, unfortunately, (Marilyn
Crandall's "On Lady MacBeth" and Nor-
man Burns's "Iago") seem too much like
classroom assignments, and although ob-
viously competent, are a little remote from
immediate pertinence. The magazine ought
to do more with commissioning their own
essays on less Weatherbeaten subjects.
The music contribution in this issue is an
aria from the very well received opera by
Karl Mugnuson and Anne Stevenson: "Adam
and Eve and the Devil." Two of the photo-
graphs of ceramics are by Don Campbell,
the quality of whose camera work has been
outstanding in The Daily this year.

MATTER OF FACT
By JOSEPH and STEWART ALSOP
JASHINGTQN - The Republican Con-
gressional leaders are frankly dissatis-
fied with President Eisenhower's eight and
a half billion dollar cut in the Truman bud-
get. According to indisputable report, it was
not at all a happy party at the White
House when the new economy program
was unveiled for Sen. Taft, Speaker Martin
and the others.
For his part, the President must have
been conscious of having taken enormous
and really terrifying risks, in order to
slash defense and foreign aid spending so
deeply. But in the eyes of the Congres-
sional bigwigs, the slash was not nearly
deep enough.
This is the current mood. The existence
of this impatient mood in turn speaks
volumes about the future relation be-
tween the President and the Congress.
The President has stated his theory of the
right way to deal with the Congress in
simple language-"I speak my piece, and
then it's up to them." It is of course con-
stitutionally correct that the President 'pro-
poses and the Congress disposes. But the
Eisenhower phrase, "then it's up to them,"
indicates wide tolerance of any disposition
Congress may choose to make. "Harmony"
is to be pursued as an end in itself.
The cut in the defense appropriations,
although attacked as inadequate, is un-
likely to be greatly surpassed by the
Congress. It can be shown to be a dan-
gerous cut; and the Democrats mean to
show the danger very dramatically.
Unfortunately, foreign aid appropriations,
although already reduced by 1.8 billion dol-
lars, are much more unpopular than de-
fense appropriations on The Hill. Sen. Mil-
liken, of Colorado, a highly responsible Re-
publican who is also very loyal to Eisen-
hower, has already commented that Con-
gress will be "merciless" towards foreign
aid.
The Appropriations Committee chairman
is Bridges of New Hampshire. Sens. Mc-
Carthy, Mundt, Dworshak and Cordon
among the Republicans, and McCarran on
the Democratic side, are likely to go to any
lengths. Sens. Ferguson and McLellan will
not be far behind. Sen. McCarthy has long
previously hinted that Secretary Dulles
would "get what was coming to him" when
the foreign aid and State Department ap-
propriations came before this committee.
Hence, if the Congressional leaders are not
minded to fight all the way for the Presi-
dent's program, Sen. McCarthy's forecast is
only too likely to come true.
The leader's lack of passionate belliger-
ence has meanwhile been indicated in the
sphere of foreign economic policy. The
White house pleaded for a simple one
year extension of the reciprocal trade
agreement act. The President further
agreed to take the recommendations, one
year from now, of a special commission
on foreign economic policy that Congres-
sional protectionists will quite certainly
pack with their sympathizers. This, you
might suppose, should have satisfied ev-
eryone.
Yet at this moment, the House Ways and
Means Committee has pigeon-holed the one-
year extension of the reciprocal trade agree-
ments act. It is holding hearings on the
Simpson bill, which represents the view of
the Pennsylvania Manufacturers Associa-
tion.
(Copyright, 1953, New York Herald Tribune, Inc.)
At the Pattengill Auditorium, the Gilbert
and Sullivan Society, "Trial by Jury" and
"H.M.S. Pinafore"

BOTH THESE OPERETTAS depend ulti-
mately for their success on the liveliness
of the chorus. It was here particularly that
last semester's production of 'Yeomen of the
Guard' failed to reach the high standard
that the group has set for itself since its
inception in 1947. No such criticism could
be made last night. The chorus were ever
eager to take a vigorous part in the scene
around them; and in 'Trial by Jury' particu-
larly they were aided by imaginative direc-
tion. At times indeed they were a little too
vigorous, and though the singing was al-
ways harmonious the audience would some-
times have profited from a little more at-
tention to the words.
'Trial by Jury' was a fine romp. Sid
Straight, the Society's faculty adviser, had
the very proper task of keeping the company
in order, and brought the authority of a
fine tenor voice to his task. Jerry Moore
who took a leading role in both productions
was more at home as the impatient, im-
proper judge with a fine sense of the comic
gesture than in the more romantic part of
Ralph Rackshaw. Lois Wasserman was
thoroughly plausible as a plaintiff capable
of bequiling judge and jury away from the
less exciting prejudices of exact justice, and
the defendant made a credible cad, though
the lower notes in his range are more accus-
tomed perhaps to more intimate audiences.
For the open deck of H.M.S. Pinafore,
Joan Wedge has provided another of her
fine sets. William Means as Sir Joseph Por-
ter, K.C.B., stole the show whenever he had
a chance, but he was not able to obscure
the fact that Dawn Waldron, as Josephine,

HE SPRING ISSUE of Generation is, I
think, the finest-pictorially-yet pub-
lished. The first fine thing about it is the
cover, something for which the magazine has
not been distinguished in the past. The
charming, delicate pastel drawing of a girl
with a goose and the reproduction of a Ren-
aissance woodcut are sufficient justification
for any purchaser.
Among the various works of art pictured
inside, the one that stands out as some-
thing special is "Head of a Rabbi," a ce-
ramic, the work of John V. Reizian. The
face, angular, bearded, and long featured,
is reminiscent of the Chagall painting
treating a similar subject.
Several other very fine things demand no-
tice. The Richard Davis woodcut of a Cam-
den, Maine, wharf has the kind of vitality
and control that lead one to think that the
artist is thoroughly acquainted with his me-
dium-no small accomplishment. The pen
and ink drawing by William Whittingham,
"Bicyclist," has a sensitivity of line and a
sense of contrast that constribute to make
the simple drawing quite charming.
But the incidental illustrations throughout
the magagzine are what make the issue es-
pecially pleasing. The appearance of the po-
etry section was enhanced by its being print-
ed on a different type of paper thgm the rest
of the magazine, and doubly enhanced by
the ink sketches that are integrated textu-
ally. The two full-page drawings that accom-
pany the two pieces of Shakespeare criticism
are excellent in the proper manner: they il-
lustrate but do not obtrude.
The two pieces of ceramic work, the bot-
tle by Judith Pick and the bowl by Vivian
Gottlieb, are graceful in both form and de-
sign; on the page opposing them is a picture

demonstrating conclusively that
the wage it offers is adequate and

is that an ultimatum be given to
the bus boys to return to work
