Academic Freedom ---
A Workable Concept

WITHIN THE last two weeks the Univer-
sity's two influential faculty forum
groups have adopted statements on the aca-
demic freedom question which voice a sen-
sible opinion on the problem of investigating
committees and the university community.
A week ago Monday, the Faculty Sen-
ate voted their approval of a statement
by the American Association of University
Professors which denounced methods used
in legislative investigations, but upheld the
right of Congress to make such formal
inquiries if the inquiries were necessary to
draft legislation.
And this Monday, the Literary College
faculty adopted an interpretive statement
on the American Association of Universities
report on the "rights and responsibilities of
universities and their faculties." Drawn up
by the executive committee of the faculty,
the analysis of the AAU document was
brought before the literary faculty for dis-
cussion, and, through the motion of a fac-
ulty member, was adopted *by the forum.
The Literary College faculty action was
perhaps more significant than the Faculty
Senate decision, since the lit college state-
ment took account of the two serious de-
fects that manyefaculty members found in
the AAU statement when it first appeared.
It might first be pointed out that the AAUP
declaraion merely condemned unfortunate
investigatory methods, while the AAU state-
ment went farther in trying to outline the
position and responsibilities of the nation's
universities and colleges in the face of Mc-
Carthy, Velde, et al. Thus a faculty member
might well support both the statements; they

are not opposite points of view as some
people have assumed.
But the AAU statement drew much crit-
icism for maintaining that invocation of
the Fifth Amendment by a professor
places "a heavy burden of proof on his
fitness to hold a teaching position," and
it was with this point that the literary
faculty took exception to the declaraion.
Indicating that this test of professional
responsibility "suggests a contradiction of
the American principle of assuming a per-
son to be innocent until proven guilty," the
faculty added that even if "the burden of
prof is assumed by the accused instead of
the accuser, the word 'heavy' would seem
to signify little except an overt unwilling-
ness or indisposition to accept whatever
evidence might be offered in his defense."
In addition the faculty dealt with the
other major controversy caused by the AAU
declaration (whether a Communist should
be allowed a faculty position) by citing the
Trucks Act which makes employment of a
Communist illegal at the University. With
this interpretation, then, the literary fac-
ulty adopted an explanation of the AAU
statement which can be applied to the Uni-
versity, and which answers the objectionable
sections of the otherwise excellent state-
Both- the Faculty. Senate and the liter-
ary college faculty are to *be commended
for delineating a workable concept of aca-
demic freedom for the University, and for
allowing their thoughtful and intelligent
expressions of opinion to be brought before
the campus,

WASHINGTON--secretary of the Treas-
ury Humphrey won't know it when he
presents his ideas ,to the House Ways and
Means Committee but the tax cards are
completely stacked against him. Chairman
Dan Reed's feathers are ruffled over the
whole tax situation and he just isn't going
to cooperate.
So no matter what Humphrey proposes
in the way of new taxes, he just isn't go-
ing to get much from his fellow Republi-
cans. In fact, hell probably get more co-
operaiton from the Democrats.
What Humphrey has been working on in
the way of a tax program is this:
A-Continuation of the excess-profits tax.
B-No cutting of income taxes this year.
C-As a sop to business, Humphrey is con-
sidering more generous depreciation rates,
thereby permitting a quicker write-off of
capital investments.
But regarding the future, Humphrey be-
lieves Congress cannot cut taxes substan-
tially without jeopardizing national defense.
What the Secretary of the Treasury
doesn't know, however, is that Republicans
on the Ways and Means Committee, who
are supposed to support him, have enter-
ed into a secret deal to let the excess-
profits tax die on the vine June 30-no
matter what he recommends.
Furthermore, uncle Dan Reed got quite
nettled the other day when Humphrey made
the understandable mistake of conferring
with Sen. Gene Millikin of Colorado about
taxes before he consulted Reed.
Doesn't he know, fumed uncle Dan at a
closed-door meeting, that tax legislation
originates in the Ways and Means Com-
mittee, not in the Senate?
Of course, Humphrey is only a plain,
hard-working Cleveland businessman,
though a most successful one. And he
probably didn't realize the niceties of Con-
gressional protocol, and whom he should
talk to first.
However, the result of all this is that
there's almost certain to be no tax legisla-
tion passed at this session of Congress. Tax-
es will be caught in a deadlock. The House,
following the advice of uncle Dan Reed, will
do nothing. The Senate, led by Chairman
Millikin of the Finance Commitee, will ac-
cept the advice of Secretary Humphrey. But
out of the impasse between the two, no new
tax bill is likely to be written.
This means theexcess-profits tax will
automatically expire June 30 and personal
income taxes automatically will be reduced
10 per cent-at the end of the year.

N THE few weeks remaining,

think it was the dissolution of the

end means that for the first time
in many years, there is not one

nized on campus.

Steinbergian touches, though, unfortun-
ately Lila Deutch who was responsible for

this one.

IN THE SUMMER HOUSE, a new play by
Jane Bowles, presented by the University
Drama Season, starring Miriam Hopkins.
The opportunity to have an early look at
new plays has been afforded to audiences
in this area largely through the influence of
Roger Stevens, who is a co-producer of the
current Drama Season offering, "In the
Summer House," the premiere of which was
held last night at Lydia Mendelssohn Thea-
ter. It would be pleasant to report that Mr.
Stevens could expect to have better luck with
his new play than he has had with other pre-
Broadway tryouts shown here and in Detroit.
But unfortunately, Jane Bowles' new drama
is a lifeless, overlong, and highly self-con-
scious play which has no discernible point
and very few good moments.
It Is the story of the relationship be-
tween a middle-aged widow and her weird
other-world daughter, centering particu-
lartly on the marriages of the two women
and their efforts to adjust to the pressures
of a world without. The author attempts,
by means of a rich Southern California
oceanside setting, to achieve some kind
of poetic insight into the scheme of this
relationship. She does this by counter-
point: the respective adjustments of the
garrulous "Glass Menagerie" mother and
the intense, psychotic daughter. This is all
Incorporated into a climate of rather gra-
tuitous dramatic violence that is rem-
iniscent of some of the literary efforts of
Paul Bowles, who composed incidental mu-
sic for the play.

A series of photos by Don Campbell reach
a melodramatic anti -climax that has me
roaring even though I've read the thing
five times.
As usual Bill Russell has contributed his
own type of humor, a collection of puns and
word plays some of them admittedly clever
for which there must be an audience, but
somehow I don't quite find them amusing.
One of the best features of the maga-
zine is the section of "1500 Jokes for All
Occasions," which supplys the appropriate
anecdote for any situation one might en-
counter from "On Being Scalded to Death
By A Vicks Inhalator" and "On Removing
a Splinter From President Eisenhower's
Foot" to "On Being Seduced" and "On
Meeting T. S. Eliot For The Second Time."
The usual pamphlet insert "Judy Be
Damned" parodies the Women's League re-
lease "Judy Be Good." As tragic as the offi-
cial publication is in its implication, so is
the Garg take-off amusing in its satiric blast
on that same implication.
Managing Editor Don Malcolm bows out
in this issue with "The Olympic Games" a
fine piece of literature of a sort not usually
found in Gargoyle. It has a beginning, an
end and real characters but is hampered
somewhat by a jaringly unsubtle ending.
Minor failures in this summer issue could-
n't possibly detract from the over-all ex-
cellence of the art work and the better mo-
ments when Gargoylian wit reaches its peak.
So what do you want for a quarter anyway?
Clare Booth Luce, maybe!

poetic effluvium of this contrast is likewise
Indeed, the only genuinely promising
poetic situation in the play arises in the
second scene of the second act with the
juxtaposition of the double wedding with
the mourning mother of the girl who has
been killed by the gorging young bride.
Here, at last, the action develops convinc-
ingly and with overtone, the only time in
the play the characters do not fall into
lengthy chronicles of how they are or what
they like (among them: stars, democracy,
the ocean, reading, and sunny days.)
The third act, however, again begins an
exhaustive compilation of past events, most
of which material should have belonged in
the first act. The curtain falls without much
sense of resolution.
Withal, the cast does a fair job. Miriam
Hopkins, in the role of the mother,
changes from Gertrude Lawrence to Bette
Davis in the course of the play, losing her
accent enroute. She has a few good mo-
ments. Mildred Dunnock is wasted in the
role of the other mother, although she
does make the best scene in the play.
Rosina Fernhoff, as the daughter, seemed
misdirected and cardboard most of the
Tamara Daykarhanova as the earthy

NO MORE PERFECT finale to a Choral
Union season of established artists
could have occurred than last night's con-
cert by the Boston Symphony Orchestra
with Pierre Monteaux, certainly one of the
most outstanding musicians to have ever
wielded a baton, as conductor. Playing a
program of the second Symphonies of Bee-
thoven and Paul Creston, Stravinsky's Fire-
bird Suite, and the Suite from Der Rosen-
kavalier by Strauss, Mr. Monteaux was com-
pletely the master of every phrase.
As a conductor, he gives the appearance
of a painter, the baton his brush, and the
orchestra his palette. With short, quick,
and very unobtrusive motions he molds
each orchestral color into a blend of tonal
purity, choral richness, and dynamic per-
fection. How elegantly the soft string open-
ing of the Beethoven second movement
gave way to its repetition with the clarinet
playing lead over an undercurrent of low
bass tones, or how well he proportioned
each nuance in the Stravinsky to enable
each part to be singular and still contribute
to a perfect whole. Only a painter who
knew how to compliment every color, how
to form each shading and transition, could
put on the temporal canvas of music such
a beautiful mixture of orchestral sound.
No man was more fitted to conduct the
Stravinsky than he. Forty years ago he led
the first performance of that composer's
Rite of Spring; the Paris that bred the Stra-
vinsky of his early period was likewise the
Paris of Pierre Monteaux. He brought to the
Firebird the same youthful enthusiasm in
performance that it had for the composer
who at that time was just beginning his ca-
reer. But last night there was also the ma-
turity of a conductor who could look back
to the work's inception, of a man who could
view his whole life's dedication to music and
the gradual stylistic perfection that has
arisen. This performance was the high point
of the concert.
The Symphony of Paul Creston shows
the weakness that can come from too much
idolatry of the Paris at the beginning of
this century. Though the work was well
structured and orchestrated, its romantic
vein had too much of Stravinsky in its
last movement and without Stravinsky's
dynamism, too much of impressionism and
post-romanticism in its slower passages
without the truth that comes from orig-
