Botanical Seminar. Dr. Karl C. Han-

Shakespeare's "Richard III" will
be presented April 25, 26, and 27
at the Lydia Mendelssohn Thea-
ter.
,Rather tha throw any "blind-
ing new light," on the work, Prof.
Harrison wished to inform his
audience of some of its back-
ground.
Preliminary knowledge of the
play's background, he continued,
was one thing which Shakespeare-
an audiences knew and it made
the play more meaningful to them.
Historical Issues
Since Shakespeare's audience
was often close to the historical
issues of the play, Harrison went
on, they were sometimes almost
involved in the action. "Shakes-
peare's plays held living historical
issues for them," he added.
"Richard II" held great signi-
ficance as it occurred at the end
of the War of Roses era in Eng-
Idnd," Prof. Harrison remarked.
"Although it is rather inconceiv-
able to us that there might be a
renewal of the American Civil
War," he continued, "a renewal
of this English civil war was quite
possible to them."
It is a paradox he related, that
today we are better able to under-
stand the mood of "Richard III"
than our grandfathers, who
thought of the conditions as an-
cient and far away. We are better
able to realize, these conditions
today, since our situation is so
similar, he added.
"Torture, massacre, spying and
oppression are separated from us
only by a very thin curtain,"
he said.
Instructed by History
Prof. Harrison pointed out that
even the historians of Shakes-
peare's day realized the moral
significance of 'history and the
historical play. "They had an
awareness of social parallels in
their time which we cannot pos-
sess," he said. "They were in-
structed by history."
"Shakespeare's audiences came
to a comedy to be entertained, to
a tragedy to cry real tears, and to
an historical play to be informed,"
Prof. Harrison continued.
Shakespeare wrote ten historical
plays in all. Eight of these dealt
with the same theme as "Richard
III," the War of the Roses between
the houses of Lancaster-and York.
In this work, Prof. Harrison
noted, Shakespeare has advanced
as a playwright from some of his
sports, campus, travel and home
forts. There is definitely much

G. B. HARRISON
.,,speaks on "Richard I1I"
more concern with . personality'
and motivation, he said.
Cause and Effect
"Richard III" is. a 'one-man
play,' " Prof. Harrison explained,
"and it shows that Shakespeare
has begun to brood a little' on
cause and effect. No writer can
write real or moving literature
without this quality."
Shakespeare introduces jsymbol-
ism and fate into "Richard III",
Prof. Harrison continued. "The
theme is of retribution for crime,
and blood following blood until
someone ends the cycle," he
added.
"Shakespeare," he said in con-
clusion, "tries to bring out the
problems behind the theme and
underline their significance. It is
a picture of humanity as it was,
is and can be."

Board, at its meeting of April 18, passed
a resolution to place a semester tax

would in no case exceed $2.00 and in
the case of smaller groups be in the
neighborhood of $.50. It was also re-
solved that groups utilizing the build-

for which their attendance had been
specified by the Board in advance. It
was further decided that absence from
