Dr. Solve Discuss New Tendencies In'
Teaching Of English Classef In
Lecture Today
"Parents are not as interested or in
favor of extra-class activities as they
should be," declared Prof. Joseph
Roemer in his lecture on "Extra-
Class Activities" delivered in the au-
ditorium of the University high school
yesterday afternoon.
"For this reason we cannot give
these things the importance in our
school systems that they should have.'
The faculty members of most institu-
tions are also not in favor of allowing
the students an opportunity for out-
side activities, considering that these
things detract from their regular
school work. Whether this is the case
or not," he went on, "it has become
an accepted fact with most school-
men that these extra-class activities
are a necessary and important part of
our \high school curricula."
Shows Development
Professor Roemer demonstrated the!
way this importance has been brought
about by tracing the history of the
activities from the time of the Greeks.
I-e stated that the history was to be
divided into three periods. The ear-'
liest was the period in which no at-!
tention was paid to student doings
outside of the academic line. This
continued until fairly receit times,
when a distinct attempt was made on
the part of school authorities to do
away with these things, keeping the
student's whole attention on his class
This constituted the second period.
It soon became apparent, however,
that the activities of the students out-
side of regular school hours could not
be centered absolutely on study.
"Then came the third stage, the one
that we are just entering now," the

Azores, July 23.-The French sea-
plane, La Fregate, (the Frigate-Bird),
arrived here this morning from Brest,
France, completing the first leg of its
trans-Atlantiic flight to New York by
way of the Azores and Bermuda.
With Naval Lieutenant Paulin Paris
in command, the plane\came down on
the, unruffled surface of the harbor
at 7:20 a. m. (2.20 a. m. Eastern

morning and there was no wind.
Lieut. Paris and his two compan-

Adherents Urge Democratic Nominee

ALBANY, N. Y., July 23.-Gov. Al-

can best build up to a climax just be-

playwright. Indeed, Ibsen cannot
escape the charge that he sentamen-
talized the Norse Sagas in the same
way that Tennyson ruined the
Arthurian legend.
Ibsen of the later period could never
have resorted to so artificial a heart
wringer as the ultimate, separation of
Hiordis and Sigurd. 1Ior could. he
have so far lost himself as he did "in
the awful asides of Gunnar and
Dagny in the final act. The play it-
self, aside from the cheapness of its
emotional affects has two serious
flaws. There is the unreasonableness
of the action-for who can imagine a
Sigurd weakly surrendering the wom-
an he loves simply because her ad-
vances were not plain te him and the
crudity of his character development.
Having reduced the heroes of the
North to human size, he xorgot to re-

duce the primitive passions which
actuated them, and Hiordis who is ob-
viously patterned on Brynhilde is not
the Norse Goddess of heroic propor-
tions. Ibsen was still uncurious about
the half tones of character, and forl
that reason his figures are drawn with
bold unvarying strokes. Sigurd is al-
ways magnanimous and noble; Gun-
nar, always inefficient; Hiordis " a
woman whose demoniac utterances
are not the words of a woman, but
the furious ravings of a devil. Hiordis
in the play is one who knows nothing
of love; whose actions are not mo-
tivated by any passion for either Gun-
nar or Sigurd. She would as soon have
been embraced by the bear as either
of the heroes. Yet, as Miss Kelly
read the 'part last night, Hiordis ap-
pears as a woman, in whom animal
desire is the dominant passion, it is

true, but a woman of many sided com-
plexity of character. She acted Hedda
Gabler-not Hiordis.
Aside from my inability to agree
with Mis% Kelly's interpretation of the
role, within the interpretation which
she saw, her ating was excellent.
And the whole production one of the
most interesting and valuable I have
seen. The set as designed and exe-
cuted by Thomas -Wilfred demon-
strated the practicability of the Clavi-
lux as a medium for dramatic art.
The fire in the second and third acts
rising and falling with the pulsation
of the drama to a screaming light at
the climax when Dagny revals the be-
trayal of Hiordis was tremendously
effective. In the last scene, when only
those who are distinctly of the earth
mortal,/ are left on the stage, the play
as produced, reached its high point.
