FRIDAY, AUGUST 15, 1930.
Night Editor-Howard F. Shout
For a successful season marked
by several productions of distinc-
tion and by a consistent exhibition
of respect for detail. careful direc-
tion, and sincere endeavor, we wish
to congratulate the members of
Play Production.
Undoubtedly, this summer has
seen the peak of the activities of
that organization; ability to pro-
duce works of exceeding difficulty
was shown, and plays ranging from
tragedy to the frothiest of farce-
comedies were handled with the
same regard for the intelligence of
the audience and the viewpoint of
the author.
The distinguished setting of the
Lydia Mendelssohn theatre has ad-
ded to the effect created on the
stage. The auditorium is of a size
that tends to create a bond of sym-
pathy and cooperation between the
audience and the actors. In this
connection, however, we might
mention the need for a separate
theatre for Play Production alone,
a university theatre including not
only the main stage but also ad-
joining rooms for rehearsals and
tryouts, provisions for preparing
and storing properties, dressing
rooms, and offices. his is an ideal
that has been brought nearer real-
ization by the increasing succes of
the student players.
Some mark of appreciation
should also be expressed for the
work of the visiting players and di-
rectors this summer.- Their exper-
ience and the difference of their
methods and viewpoints as con-
trasted to those of the regular staff,
have brought new interest and vi-
tality to the productions.
With a season such as this be-
hind us, we can look forward to
even more ambitiou s and more
commendable work in the future
by the campus players. Play Pro-
duction is rapidly becoming one of
the most efficient and successful
organizations of its kind.

Editorial Comment
(From Daily Iowan)
"One-half of Yale undergradu-
ates are guilty of cheating." Such
is the startling announcement
made by the Yale News. That the
offense is not seriously regarded
is another statement made. Yet
the penalty is expulsion.
If the penalty is expulsion and
yet one-half Yale undergraduates
cheat, then something is wrong
with enfordement. Something is
also wrong with the attitude of
students toward the offense.
But if character education is one
of the main ends of education, as
must be conceded, then this game
cannot be lightly overlooked. Fac-
ulty members must first of all re-
move the temptations toward
c heating-
That alone will not remove the
evil. As long as there remains a
desire toward dishonesty cheaters
will cheat. It is asking too
much of universities to remake the
moral structure of young men and
women. This problem goes back
to the schools, churches, and
Since the homes, -in many in-
stances, fail, since the churches
reach but a minority, then the
great burden rests with the schools.
Particularly does it rest with the
secondary schools where the boy
or girl has reached a more definite
ability to distinguish right and
Yet how many secondary schools
provide any conscious influence to-
ward character building, moral
conduct, or ethical standards? No
wonder cheaters will cheat.
(From Daily Illini)
It has always seemed rather
strange to us that only the so-called
"white colar" workers in industry
get regular vacations. We are
pleased to note that some of our
large corporations are giving other
workmen summer vacations-with
full pay. For instance, the Wes-
tern Electric company this year is
giving 69,000 of its 75,000 employes,
in both offices and shops, a paid
In this year of business depres-
sion employers will unfortunately
regard industrial vacations with
pay as a form of philanthropy
which they cannot afford. Normal
business conditions, h o w e v e r,
should see great increases in the
number of wage earners taking
regular vacations.
American industry and our pres-
ent economic organization should
accept the idea of vacations for
all workers and carry the cost of
'such vacations as a fixed charge
upon production. Vacations for
workers not only promote better
employer-employe relations and in-
creased efficiency but are socially
a i

Inasmuch as this column is dedi-
cated to humor (well, even the best
of us never reach our ideals, so
don't be so quick on the trigger)
it was not without considerable
thought that I have finally decid-
ed to digress intentionally from
Rolls' policy and announce this en-
tirely humorless bit of information.
And this is it. Contrary to what
seems to be the general belief on

It was pretty mean of me to
spring it on you like that but those
things are best endured when
they're taken all at once, like a
cold shower or a dose of castor oil.
Yes, it's just too much, but that's
the situation and there's nothing
to be done about it but grit your
teeth, shut your eyes and go to
sleep or something. Classes will be
held as usual up until Wednesday
afternoon and final exams will be-
gin Thursday morning. It doesn't
give you a chance to cram or even
think twice. The University au-
thorities, it is said, have been en-
deavoring all summer to make the
students think once and finding
it practically impossible, have jus-
tifiablly reached the conclusion that
most of the student body doesn't
even want a chance to think twice.
Which goes to prove that we our-
selves are at fault.

About Books
Scandinavian Literature by H. G.
Topsoe-Jensen; The American-
Scandinavian Foundation; W. W.
Norton and Company; Price $2.50.
This book is the first that has at-
tempted to give a survey of the lit-
erature of the North. The book was
originally written in Danish, and
was translated into English for
American readers through the
auspices of the American-Scandi-
navian Foundation. For a period
of eighteen years this organization
has put before a large English
reading public the literature and
art of the Scandinavian countries.
Some thirty-eight classics have
been published. When you con-
sider that the Scandinavian coun-
tries all told have a population
somewhat less than the state of
New York and that each year in
these countries morebooksrare
published than in the United States
you can appreciate the importance
of this book of Mr. Topsoe-Jensen
in its attempt to give readers a
general survey of the work that
has been done in the North since
the appearance of Brands. Over
two hundred authors are taken up
and classified, considerablekatten-
tion given to Brands, Ibsen, Bjorn-
son, Strindberg, Largerloef, Bjoer,
The literature from the period
of the Norweigian-Icelandic Eddas
to the middle of the nineteenth
century is hastily dismissed by the
author in an Introductory Survey
added especially to this edition for
the benefit of American readers
Beginning with George Brands who
with his fiery soul agitated the na-
tives to a literary consciousness,
through the naturalism that broke
forth from it, to the symbolism, the
individualism, and naturalism
(again) that followed, and to the
confused mass since 1914 in which
it is difficult to discover what the
main current is, such is Mr. Top-
soe-Jensen's road of travel. But
it must be confessed that it is a
bit difficult to travel with this au-
thor. There is nothing to argue
about over the physical make-up
of the sentences, but they are quite
lacking of spiritual side. He has a
crisp reportorial style without col-
or or feeling. And it is probably
wrong to attack his lack of criti-
cal attitude towards his material,
if you will consider the work as
making no pretentions other than
as a survey. In this the author has
shown prodidious energy, he has
catalogued and culandered his
material very well. But ihis is a
difficult road to travel, for cata-
logue reading is not especially at-
tractive. Your head whirls with
the long lists of names, books,
schools, parties, etc. And it is as
a guide book that this has its most
value. If you are thrust into the
experience of reading Scandinavian
literature, and wish to order that
experience and see just where you
stand, this book will be very help-
ful, even indispensible. It will
help you out of a muddled and con-
fused outlook by giving you a gen-
eral picture and outlined picture
of the whole. R. E. M.
A new and uniform edition of the
selected prose works of D. H. Law-

rence will be published this fall by
Albert and Charles Moni. This
edition which will consist of twelve
volumes including the important
books, The Rainbow, Sons and
Lovers, Women in Love, and Stu-
dies in Classic American Literature,
and should prove invaluable to the
student of this author. The death
of D. H. Lawrence and the irrevoc-
able fact that therle can be no
more books from his pen forces one
to realize what an important per-
sonage he was in English letters.
The disappearance of this genius-
stricken figure from the world
means that we have lost one of the
great fighters for the freedom of
our speech and for the develop-
ment of civilized man's emotional
virility. Readers who understand
Lawrence's passionate struggle to
free the sex relationship between
men and women from the smother-
ing influence of hypocrisy and the
dullness and apathy of mechanical
living, and who have delighted in
the vigor and beauty of his style
will value this new and uniform
edition of his works.
