1 JIn Retrospect
The publicity. I think, was un-
fortunate. It wasn't a gala event.
It wasn't a Festival really. A group
of talented, on the whole very in-
teresting actors, assembled for a
few weeks and put on good dramas.
There weren't the opportunities of
Ipreparation to give festivalian sol-
idity to any one of the six produc-
tions. There was the talent, how-
ever, to give all six attempts in-
terest for a larger group than
seemed interested. The "Festival"
was an attractive event and one
earnestly hopes for its repetition.
There were interesting actors.
Not too inconspicuous among them
was Ainsworth Arnold. There was
nothing glamorous about Mr. Ar-j
nold's work. His part in Serena
Blandish was typical: the butler in
the play was very pained, very sar-
donic, very wise. In Mr. Arnold's
version an intricate facial mask
conveyed pain : the quality of
jmovement through the shoulders
the sardonic: the gnomic depths of

gestion or intervention.
From, it all, interpreting this
lengthy discourse by the leader of
the nation as the voice of the Sov-
iet Republic, we gather that eco-
nomically, there has been decidedE
progress; that there are many rec-
ognized faults in the system that
will be remedied as soon as pos-
sible; that the communist Party
is continuing its propaganda all
over the world; and that Russia is
