Three forces, he pointed out, om-
bine to make the drama of this

Professor Parrot said, by the claim

which later became common. The
humor, he asserted, often descended
to "gross obscenity."
The classical and academic infiu-
ence, on the other hand, was chiefly
the result of the work of amateurs
who make a study of the Italian
and Latin playwrights, Professor
"Parrot said. "ere, we first find,"
he continued, "some sense of the

Beauty an Appreciated Quality
Romanticism became apparent, he
.said, in the use of distant scenes

and times with an appeal to the
imagination and to the superstition..
Beauty "became an appreciated
quality. This coincides, he asserted,
'with the outbreak of poetry.,
The founders of this drama, he
went on, were not inventors but
were rather "blenders and harmon-

bohemians." Among others, he men-

"These three forces," he conclud-

Theatre Turns
To Primitive,
Stevens Sees Trend Away
From Exact Representa-
tion of Nature
The modern theatre, like modern
painting and Aiterature, has turr ed
from the exact representation of na-
ture to a morej innocent and prim-
itive interpretation of the -world,
Thomas Wood Shvens, guest direc-
tor of the Michigan' Pepertory Play-
ers and founder of. the dramatics
school at the Carnegie Institute of
Technology, asserted yesterday.
Another modern note, he cohtinu-
ed, is to be found in the rapidly,
changing character of the audience.
With shortened working hours and
additional leisure time, the working
man is more and more turning to
the, theatre.: This element is, and
must be, considered, he pointed 'out.
Stevens traced the development of
modern painting through Sargent
and Cezanne, accompanied with an
increasing appreciation of El Greco,
to the moderns of today. All this
art; he said, has' been a revolt.
against the naturalistic methods of
their predecessors.
Literature has followed the same
process, he continued. From the ar-
tificially developed narrative threads
of previous writers, we have come to
the stream-of-consciousness novel
such as those of James Joyce, Stev-
ens pointed out.
Two distinct phases of modernism
are to be found in the theatre, he
said. The first is a stylization from
a rimitive and innocent view which,
when fully developed, becomes ex-
pressionism and is well exemplified
in O'Ueill's play,' "The Hairy Ape,"
Stevens asserted. This leads to a
distortion of -scenery and character,
h said.
The second element is that of con-
structivism,'* he continued. "Here,
an attempt is made to get at the
skeleton of the thing without any
of the masks of the previous theatre.
This results in sets chiefly construc-
t d from planes, runways, and var-
ious levels. Its effect -upon the act-
ing is to bring about a tremendous.
expenditure of energy and produces
something of the same psychological
effect as the circus. But it is good

Hubbard Cites
Of School Head
A v e r a g e Superintendent
Holds Two Degrees, Is
44 Years Old, He Says
The typical city school- superin-
tendent holds both a bachelor of
arts, a master of arts degree; as a
graduate student he has majored in
education and has attended summer
school during the last three years.
"These were some of the characteris-
tics of the typical school official ad-
vanced by Dr. Frank Hubbard, as,-
sociate director of the research di-
vision of the National Education as-
sociation in a lecture yesterday.
Dr. Hubbard threw the spotlight
on the typical superintendent of
schools in communities of more than
2,500 population. He presented find-
ings based on questionnaires sent to
more' than 2,000 superintendents.
The typical man of this class also,
is a member of a service club and
the chamber of commerce, holds one
office in a civic organization, and
presents educational problems to a
civic group three times a year.
He also holds office in one profes-
sional group, gives each year one to
five talks or reports before profes-
-sional gatherinis, and serves on one
to five professional committees. He
is 44 years of age, has had 21 years
of eiperience in school work, was
principal of a high school before be-
coming superintendent, has been su-
perintendent for 10 years and has
been in his present position for 6

There is no reason why the cam-

WASHINGTON,,July 13.-(AP)-
Canada and the United States have
finally reached an agreement to
build the $800,000,000 St. Lawrence
seaway which is to open every har-
bor on the Great Lakes to ocean
The White House announced to-
day the terms of an agreement were
finally settled yesterday and that
the treaty now being drafted will be
ready for signature "at an early,
date." The. expectation was this
would be in a week or two.
The treaty probably will be sign-
ed in Washington by representatives
of the Dominion of Canada and the
United States. The Canadian Gov-
ernment will sign an agreement
later with Ontario which is to han-
dle the Canadian share of the power
developed in the international sec-
tion of the seaway.
New York to Market Power
ThmUnited States will sign an
agreement with New York State
which will market the American
share of the electrical power.
For 11 years Canada' and the
United States have had nthe seaway
under, serious consideration and for
eight years there have been active
negotiations. During the last six
months W., D. Herridge, the Cana-
dian minister to Washington, and
Hanford MacNider, the American
minister to Canada, have been trav-
eling regularly between Ottawa and
Washington to negotiate with the
Canadian prime minister, R. B.
Bennett, and Secretary Stimson.
Means Six or Eight Years Work
President Hoover has been active,
with former Senator Henry J. Allen,
of Kansas, as his personal repre-
sentative. The joint board of Cana-
dian and American engineers, which
made a report on the seaway six
years ago, estimated that from seven
to eight years will be required to
complete the gigantic project after
work is actually begun.
The,,.section of the St. Lawrence
which will be developed as a sea-
way extends from Mpntreal to Lake
Ontario, approximately 180 miles.
It was definitely established to-
day that the agreement provides for
construction of a 27-foot channel
throughout the seaway and stipu-
lates that there shall be two dams.
The' seaway stretch of the River has
a total drop of 220 feet.

Dry, Offers
Repeal' Bill.
Would Abolish Prohibi-
tion, but Have Federals
Keep Saloons Out
WASHINGTON, July 13.--(AP)-
A resolution proposing a new con-
stitutional amendment, repealing the
Eighteenth Amendment but outlaw-
ing the saloon, was introduced in
the Senate today by Senator Car-
ter Glass ,of Virginia.'
For years he has been one of the .
leading Congressional supporters of{
The former Democratic Secretary
of the Treasury asked for immed-.
iate consideration of his resolution,
but this was blocked by Senator
Norris, Nebraska Republican. Glass
then said he would call it up again.
T h e constitutional amendment
proposed by the Virginian would
allow states that want liquor to
have it, but would keep the saloon
unconstitutional. It also would pro-
hibit transportation of liquor into
states where it was forbidden.
The amendment would have to
be ratified by state conventions
within, seven years or it would die.
Glass told the Senate his amend-
ment was in conformity with the
prohibition plank adopted by the
Democratic 'National Convention
and was a "proposition which no
Republican who is disposed to be
guided by party declarations can re-
-sent or resist."
Senator Norris, however, objected
to its immediate consideration.
Glass replied he would call the
resolution up later to "test the good
faith and sincerity of the Senator
from Connecticut (Bingham) and
other Republicans who have engag-
ed in 'testing the sincerity' of the
Democratic Party."
Off the floo% later, Glass said his
amendment would permit the sale
of liquor in hotels and restaurants
unless State laws interferred. He
said introduction of the resolution
did not commit him to repeal.
Another attempt to obtain action
on a repeal resolution was then
iAade by Sen. Bulkley, Ohio Demo-
crat, who asked a vote on taking
from the judiciary committee the
repeal resolution introduced by Sen.
Wagner, New York Democrat.

DUBLIN, July 13.- (AP) -Thel
threatened tariff war between Brit-
ain and the Irish Free State be-
came an imminent fact tonight4
when it was announced that an em-
ergency reprisal measure, imposing;
new duties on all articles brought
in from Great Britain which might
be purchased in any other country,
would be introduced in the Dail
Thursday, and rushed into law.
William T. Cosgrave, the prede-
cessor of Eamon de Valera as Presi-
dent of the Free State, character-
ized the situation as appaling.
The British Government has an-
nounced that special import duties
against certain Irish products, tax-
ing them 20 per cent ad valorem,
would become effective Monday.
These British tariffs are a reprisal
measure taken because the Free
State has refused to pay land an-
The casualness with which Mr. De
Valera announced his own, reprisal
bill heightened the dramatic situa-
tion in the Dail.

ment's farm supporters, made a bel-
ligerent speech for the measure.
