The biographer of Emily_ Dick-
inson is confronted with the barb-
wire Dickinson legend-an obstacle
which has caught and ripped all
who have attempted a solution by
the biographic method. Madame
Martha Bianchi in her Life and
'Letters has explained the Amherst
spinster's phantom lover as the
Rev. Charles Wadsworth of Phila-
delphia. Josephine Pollitt in a
book published earlier this year,
Emily Dickinson, The Human Back-
ground of her Poetry, overthrew
the older tradition and explained
the lover as Lieutenant Hunt,
husband of her friend Helen Hunt.
Miss Taggard will consent to nei-
ther view; she maintains the lover
to be George Gould, whom Emily
met while he was a student at Am-
herst, whom she would have mar-
ried: but for the disapproval of her
father. She always remembered
Gould is the contention, and wrote
to him all the rest of her life. It
was he that turned her away from
the world, led her to live a clois-
tered, ascetic life.

The fact that the teachers' pen-
sion funds as they at present ex-
ist in the state are unsatisfactory
is well known to everyone connect-I
ed with the schools. The state!

But Miss Taggard has beeny
caught on the barb-wire too. Her,
so cation does not entirly discredit
the belil fs previously held. Indeed
j -he mystory of whom Emily Dick-
insocn was in love with is still shad-,

too few. Such a situation deserves a oetm h a

the profession but. also by the gen- ition which led her to seek solace

We mislayed our comps last night
at the crucial moment and so did
not get over to the Lydia Mendel-
ssohn Theatre until about a quar-
ter to nine, which was rather for-
tunate in a way since we didn't
have to go in and sit in the audi-!
torium alone but walked in with
practically all, the important peo-!
ple, such as that portion of the
summer faculty which wasn't half
dead from the registration rushl
and whose wife had finally man-!
aged to get her hair piled on se-f
curely, and the like. When we had -
been properly justled about in thel
dark by long lady ushers in whis-
pers and slinky evening gowns and
shunted into the wrong seats and
had our stubs collected and return-
ed five times or so, we settled down
for a good look at the stage._
Our reviewer has told you. just
fwhat you may think of the per-
formance elsewhere in these pages;
so we'll pass on to the more inti-
mate and less cerebral procedure'
of giving you the insides (guts,
some people say, but we have al-
ways stuck to our insides) of the
gala event-to use some of the flow-
ing rhetoric Mr. Henderson splash-
es about in his ubiquitous adver-I
tisements. Below we are showing
a -picture of one of the play's
lighter moments - when heroine
and drunken brother are exchang-!

that any real drinking goes on in

Here, however, and we're quite a!
title way from the original subject, 1
we will admit-is that picture we9
were speaking of:
There you are, brother Ned and
sister Linda, reading left to right.
Ned has just remarked that he has
a pair, of very powerful binocu-
lars. Quick as a flash, Linda re-
torts, "Oh, but I love virile men."
Dear Doctor,
Do you ever accept contributions
o your column? I spent all last
Summer on my uncle's farm re-
luperating. I had a pet rabbit
while I was recuperating. Here is
ipoem about her. Please publish

Yours till death,
Of course we're always glad to
bear from our little feathered and1
L urry friends, Beulah. We willj

ave now, won't you.
The rabbit, a wondrous beast is
Far famed for his fecundity.
He asked, he simply stated, "Why,
At school I learned to multiply."
We are always glad to hear from
or friends at home' or abroad.
t st drop us a line in care of this
raper and let us help you solve the I
nany problems which constantly
rise in the course of a summer
ession day. Questions concerning
Lealth, religion, or politics must'
