THE CRITICG RITIGIED
ALUMINA TAKES ISSUE WITH LEE
O'JAXII ON ADVERSE "MELTING
Editor, The Summer Michigan Daily:
After the much discussed article by
Mr. Lee O'Jayh in Friday's Daily, I
want to take this opportunity of dis-
agreeing with him in his criticism of
the presentation of the "Melting Pot"
by the play production class.
During the three years I have been
on the campus I have taken a great in-
terest in the dramatic work, and in my
opinion the rendition of this play was
one of the best, if not the best, I have
seen since I have been here. The play
had not progressed further than the
entrance of the third character before
it seemed quite evident to me that we
were to be given something out of the
ordinary amateur class. Furthermore,
I think the major portion of the au-I
dience will bear me out in this opin-
ion, for the audience began to applaud
earlier and more frequently than us-
As for the ground for my opinion,
there are no personal reasons which
bias my judgment, as I wouldn't know
Professor Hollister or any of those
who assisted if I saw them. More-
over, I have no friends in the cast. I
believe I know one member merely to
speak to and one by sight.
Out of Players' Club Class
As compared with the production of
the same play last spring by the Play-
ers' club, this is entirely out of that
class. On the other hand, the Players'
club is made up, not of teachers and
experienced people, as was this cast,
but of students. And here I want to
say I haven't anything but praise for
the efforts of the Players' club and am
usually an enthusiastic member of
But to speak of the recent play, so
far from being "forced and stiff" and
lacking in interpretation, I considered
the offering of Thursday evening par-
ticularly free from anything that could
be called either forced or stiff and con-
tend thatwthe membersentered sur-
prisingly well into the spirit of their
parts. The interpretation of the part
of David by Harold Lipsitz impressed
me as particularly sympathetic. And
Helen Elliott's characteriaztion of
Kathleen was even better than the
one she gave of the same part last
spring. But as for that, every charact.
er seemed especially well fitted for his
or her part, and I wouldn't say there
was a weak link.
