A MORE RECENT ENGAGEMENT
An egregious error was made in
publicity yesterday concerning St.
John Hankin's "The Cassilis En-
gagement." It was stated that the I
play was 50 years old. It is not;
it was written 22 years ago. But
however old, the essential fact re-
mains that the play is good fun,
on a background of sounder sense
that present day songwriters dis-
play when they warble about this
or that "weakness now."

CONTEMPORARY AMERICAN
PAINTING
Reviewed by Lee Blaser
Has our modern art become lost
through the mazes of an over-
specialized mind? Two exhibitions
in the Cleveland Museum of Art
offer an unusual contrast for dis-
cussion of the situation. During
the month of June the annual show
of contemporary American paint-
ing and a display of African art will
rub elbows.
The primitives have no confused
searchings for expression, but rath-
er a direct march to vitality of
form and color which is rarely, and
even then, artificially, grasped by;
the contemporary field. On the
other hand there is much that is
good and much that is dull in the
modern show. It is an interesting
foil for the negroid simplicity; the
prevailing freshness is that of so-
phistication-coming back to sim-
plicity after a long tortuous climb
through design forms. It is in-
deed surprising how far some of
the artists have gotten away from
the true feeling of oil and the
vitality it should carry.
In portraiture this quality of
structural strength in recognition
of material and medium is parad-
ed in Henri's "Portrait of a Girl."

PROHIBITION METHODS
An experiment in government is
being conducted in Washington,
where President Hoover is attempt-
ing to make administration more
scientific. That this is a quality
that has long been needed is not
to be questioned. The increased
efficiency in all departments,. the
thoroughness and dispatch with
which problems of state are handl-
ed, and the order which has emerg-
ed from what was a chaos of lob-
bying, secret alliances, and under-
ground influences attempting to
control the chief executive in the
exercise of his duties are all evi-
dences of the fact that an engi-
neer holds the reins. That only
the surface of the matter has been
scratched is admitted by the presi-
dent himself, but the results even
at this stage are gratifying.
However, Mr. Hoover has disre-
garded a very important point in
his desire for more effective admin-
istration-he has disregarded the
human factor in his experiment,
which is a mistake scientists are
prone to make. Nowhere is this
more noticeable than in his atti-
tude toward the enforcement of the
prohibition law upon which heI
seems to have taken the stand
than, since it is a law, it is to
be enforced rigidly, and with al-
most any degree of force. The!
desires of a vast number of the
people whose destiny he controls
are ilot taken into account; the
fact that the nation as a whole has
shown itself to be in favor of pro-

JAPAN SPEAKS
Japan has again expressed its
hearty agreement with any plan
that would tend to lessen war pre-
parations and to make foi world
peace. The communication of
Premier Tanaka to the American
government that his country was
ready to support any measures
looking toward a further reduction
of armaments should give greater
impetus to such action.
Coming at a time when the dis-
cussion of the matter has been re-
opened by Ambassador Dawes and{
the British premier, the message
cannot but have the effect of mak-
ing a new disarmament conference
