W ITH THE INAUGURATION of the
first annual Summer Parley, being
held today and tomorrow in the Union, an
attempt is being made to carry over to the Sum-
mer Session one of the successful student insti-
tutisns of the regular term.
Were it not for the eleven years of success
back of the Spring Parleys, this would be no
easy task. However, by a small nucleus of work-
ers from the past few years, a number of gradu-
ates who remember the Parley from their un-
dergraduate days, and several other interested
students and faculty members, a new tradition
is about to be launched on this campus.
The Parley always raises more questions than
it can answer. And it probably never changes
anyone's mind. But if it stimulates thought on
the current t6pics of the day, if it encourages
expression of ideas already held, and if it suc
ceeds in breaking down the formality of the
student-faculty relations so unavoidable at . a
large university, then it has succeeded in its
task. For eleven years, with an undergraduate
crowd, this has been well accomplished. There
is every reason why a more experienced group
of people should find such a meeting even more
interesting and should evolve more mature con-
The topic of the Parley, "Which Way Progress
-Social Responsibility or Individualism?" with
its four panels on education, international rela-
tions, government and politics, and industry and
labor, cuts through the lives of all of us.
Among the major problems which are bound
to come up first are: does education owe its
responsibility to the individual, as Rousseau
argued, or to the society which supports it, fol-
lowing Plato's ideas?
Are the scientists responsible for the deaths
from war because they manufacture the chemi-
cals which become munitions? And to whom do
they owe their responsibility?
What is to be the path of the church, and is
there any compromise between administering to
lguman needs and remaining strictly out of poli-
tics and the government? And can the church's
doctrine, faiths and values be reconciled to life
What is to be the relation of labor to capital
and what is the social responsibility of indus-
trialists to the working classes? And to the em-
The more general subjects of war, peace, com-
munism, fascism, dictatorship in this country,
classic vs. contemporary literature, progressive
education, the purpose of college education, what
good it does the individual, the 1940 elections
and candidates, third term and others cannot
help being discussed.
Listed on the faculty panels are some of the
best known men in their fields. Thus we find
Durselves with an opportunity that we may never
have again-to express and compare our own
points of view on these questions which are so
important, with the viewpoints of some of the
others facing these questions with us, both ex-
perts and members of the general summer stu-

Dr. Hugh Borton Of Columbia tniversity
Explains Tokugawa Bakafu
By KARL KESSLER
Understanding of the present totalitarian sys-
tem of government in Japan may be better
reached after a study of the totalitarian features
of the Tokugawa Bakafu in Japan between the
years 1603 and 1867, Dr. Hugh Borton of the
Institute of Japanese Studies, Columbia Univer-
sity, stated yesterday.
Taking up where his successors had left off in
subjugating the country, Tokugawa Ieyasu suc-
ceeded in establishing an absolute centralized
control of the political and economical functions
of the country and established his family as a
ruling dynasty until the collapse of Shogu govern-
ment in 1867.
The military government of Ieyasu even sub-
ordinated that of the Emperor in Kyoto. All
opposition to the central authority was liquidated,
and ruling families not in full accord with the
government were given holdings in distant parts
of the country.
Socially and politically, the populace was
sharply divided into four distinct classes. In
order of importance, they were: the nobles,
warriors (samurai), farmers and townspeople.
Restrictions placed on free travel, trade and
even on social conduct, Dr. Borton emphasized,
were far greater than those employed by present
dictatorial and totalitarian rulers.
The eventual overthrow of the centralized
government in favor of control through the
emperor was finally brought about in 1867,
chiefly under the pressure of the merchants in
Osaka and other commercial cities. The part
played by foreign powers in bringing about this
change has been greatly over-emphasized, Dr.
Borton concluded. It was merely the final spark
which touched off the internal pressure.
By MARTHA GRAHAM and MALCOLM LONG
It is small wonder that the play, "The Good
Hope," which was written as a protest against
certain abuses in the Dutch fishing industry,
was influential in the passage of the Ships
Act of 1909 which largely remedied these abuses.
A play of such stark tragedy with such living
characters can't be easily forgotten.
Combining the artistry of fine character por-
trayal with a vigorous social protest, writing a
social document which has power 30 years after
the conditions its proclaims against have been
relieved is Heijermans' accomplishment.
To those who went away from the play feeling
that such a piece was too heavy for one night's
entertainmnent, that it was too depressing, the
answer is that it was only the fine acting, par-
ticularly in the minor roles, that made so dis-
tant a play real enough to be tragedy.
First mention must go to Miss Claribel Baird
as old mother Kniertie. Her drawn, haggard look
as she sat in the offi'ce of Bos in the smashing
final scene her powerful portrayal of the be-
reaved mother going home alone, was one of
the best scenes of the play.
Nancy Bowman as Saart, Marguerite Mink as
Marietje, Duane Nelson as Simon and Truman
Smith as Uncle Cobus added unusually convinc-
ing portrayals to the list of minor characters.
Sarah Pierce as Jo handled a heavy role too
un-Dutch-like-was too changeable emotionally
for a real daughter of Holland. James Moll as
Barend, the cowardly and foolish son of old
Kniertje, seems now to be typed for the gawky,
nimble footed fool for good. An extremely diffi-
cult role, he perhaps became a little too hysteri-
cal in a scene too long for credulity. Edward
Jurist started well but stumbled before his last
Other members of the cast included Bettie
Howard, Nathan Gitlin, Galen jWenger, Arthur
Klein, Robert Cunningham, J. D. Moore, Donald
Barbe, Evelyn Smith, Ray Pedersen, June Madf-
son, Margaret Echols, Norma Vint, Odom Day,
Kenneth Wax, Joseph Graham and Lee Delevin.
The play is well left until last. A good reviewer,
missing the first act, would not have been sorry.
The third act finally became powerful, and the
fourth unnecessary except for the final scene,
handled so competently by Miss Baird. ,
Prof. Valentine B. Windt directed the Players,
who by this time, have worn off much of their
amateurishness. They bid fair to become an ex-
cellent group well before the season draws to its
close. Art direction was under Oren Parker with
Miss Lucy Barton designing the costumes. The
sound effects were unusually well handled, lend-
ing much to the reality of the play.
Somerset Maugham's truism that social impli-
cations in literature wear away with time but
that Man is an inexhaustible source for writings
is well born out by last night's drama.
has been much discussed lately, and last year
for the first time two women were members of
the Church Assembly.

The Summer Parley bids fair to become as
firmly entrenched as the much-publicized Spring
Parley. When it opens tomorrow dogma will be
heatedly tossed against dogma, Republican will'
face Liberal and the battle of words will be on.
June Harris, the poetess-laureate of the Daily
who's now sojourning in the East, just about in-
cluded everything in her summation "Post-
Parley Nightmare" last spring. Without further
adieu we reprint:
By JUNE HARRIS
Barker: Step right up my friends
Come and join the fray
See the pretty parley panels
Standing in array.
Hurry, hurry, hurry
You all can have a say
Buy one for your girl friend sir
The parley starts today.
Fascists and democrats
Communists and autocrats
Are going -to solve eternity
Students to the right of you
Volleying and thundering
Students to the left of you
Open mouthed and wondering.
Listen, listen, listen
Thhe speeches will begn
Come and see the awful mess
The world is getting in.
First speaker: Be of good cheer
There's nothing to fear
God's in His Heaven
And Adam Smith's near.
Listen to me
It's easy to see
When you build up your capital
Life is a spree.
Second speaker: Why be so dense
Use your good sense
Why not be happy
And sit on the fence?
To make a decision
Is cause for division
Remains my position.
