THE MICHIGAN DAILY

FRIDAY, JULY 24, 1953

By HARLAND BRITZ
Daily Managing Editor
HE OUTSPOKEN voice of the Harvard
Crimson has been stilled. The summer
school administration has stripped the sum-
mer edition of its right to editorialize.
Whatever reasons the higher ups have
given, their action remains a downright in-
vasion of the Crimson's cherished freedom
of the press.
The Crimson has long been a stalwart
among independent college newspapers.
Just before the prohibition was issued,
they were preparing to chastise the Har-
vard Corporation for firing an anatomy
professor for refusing to testify before a
congressional committee. In their last
issue they blasted the Eisenhower Admin-
istration for "apathy" in dealing with the
Iron Curtain riots.
The authorities may maintain that these
editorials had nothing to do with the sus-
pension, but they will have considerable dif-
ficulty in convincing anyone of this.
The reason given for the prohibition is
that since the Summer Crimson is partially
subsidized by the University it should not,
publish any political opinions because the
summer school itself has no opinions.
Upon closer examination this appears
to be nothing but a fiction. The summer
Crimson is a newspaper, whether the Uni-
versity, the students themselves, or some
wealthy benefactor supports it. As a news-
paper the staff or at least individual staff
members are entitled to express views.
The University is giving them aid because
as a newspaper, the Crimson also reports
news of the campus. This it does well.
But no one considers the paper an organ
of the University.
Our news source at Cambridge believes
that the order is a clear case of adm'inistra-
tion higherups not liking the particular
views of the paper and using their briefly
assumed power to silence the deviationists.
There appears to be little other logical ex-
planation, especially in view of the fact
that the paper has for years editorialized
during the summers without interference.
When the fall term begins and the regu-
lar editors return, the Crimson will resume
its autonomy. Once again its editorial page
will resume action. It might do wise to re-
frain from passing such key control in the
future to. the summer school. Indeed, with-
out the right to speak out, the newspaper
becomes little more than an official bulletin.
All of the student enthusiasm is nipped in
the bud. If Crimson editors face publication
another summer with its most important
function inoperative, it would do better to
close up shop until fall.
Meanwhile, Harvard University, long con-
sidered a leader among liberal, independent,
institutions, is giving itself a black eye by
putting itself along side so many other
schools that were too small to either accept
criticism or tolerate some unconventional
thinking among their students.
HE CHIEF foundation of all states, new
as well as old or composite, are good
laws and good arms, and as there cannot
be good laws where the state is not well
armed, it follows that where they are well
armed they have good laws.
-Machiavelli

Musical Current

A HISTORICALLY significant event in art
is pretty easy to see when viewed from
the safe distance of a few hundred years.
But when the time element is diminished,
and perspective is clouded by our subject-
ive involvement in the heavy stream of cur-
rent happenings, significance is most diffi-
cult to point out, and any statements con-
cerning it are usually controversial.
Today in music a significant event is tak-
ing place. It is safe to say this, since history
has shown a pattern, which when put into
perspective, seems inevitable. But of course,
as in all artistically significant events,
whether it be Stravinsky's Rite of Spring or
Giotto's Frescoes in the Arena Chapel, to
those of us living when it is happening, it
is unexpected.
To understand what this event is, it is
best to show how it was arrived at. This
can be done by a brief, cursory glimpse at
music since Wagner and Brahms.
At the end of the nineteenth century two
general currents, contradictory in nature,
were evolving as guideposts for creation in
music. Both currents had manifestos.
The first of these currents was headed by
Arnold Schoenberg. His views were sum-
marized in his book, "Style and Idea." The
musical word pertinent here is chromati-
cism, as Schoenberg was the chief propo-
nent and philosopher of twelve-tone music
or "atonality."
Chromaticism is a word which has to be
understood by the ear before the mind, but
it involves all the twelve notes of the scale
rather than the eight diatonic ones, and is
opposed to a system of scales where cer-
tain notes are foreign.
The chief proponent of chromaticism
before Schoenberg was Wagner, who to
the twelve-tone composer was the main
influence. The Prelude to Tristran and
Isolde can be understood by the twelve-
tone analysis Schoenberg advocated.
Igor Stravinsky in his book "Poetics of
Music" presented what can be caled the
manifesto of the second current, which has
been dubbed by critics "Neoclassicism"
While Schoenberg represented a continu-
ation of Wagner, and Romanticism, Stra-
vinsky represented a reaction against this.
The musical word here is tonality. Here
again is a word needing the ear for explana-
tion. But in the main, tonality at the be-
ginning of this century meant a return to a
solid superstructure for music, a superstruc-
ture provided for by different key levels in
relation to one another.
Stravinsky and such composers as

Hindemith, Bartok, and Milhaud, looked
back to Mozart, Bach, and earlier renais-
sance composers for inspiration. Schoen-
berg, and his followers, Berg and Webern,
denied there was any value in looking
back, and adamantly insisted on constant-
ly looking forward with only occasional
glimpses at previous composers for indi-
cations of future progress.
Schoenberg didn't care one bit about what
key a work was to be in, and his music was
supposed to be keyless. Stravinsky thought
key level, or tonality, to be the most im-
portant part of music, and any belief other-
wise tended to destroy music, as he thought
Wagner had done.
The result in both cases was extreme
viewpoints. Schoenberg thought the old con-
cepts useless for present day needs. Stra-
vinsky felt that chromaticism tended to be
unworkable if not used very sparingly.
Today composers are writing music ad-
hering to all the strict twelve-tone rules set
down by Schoenberg, and at the same time
their music is tonal. Schoenberg was wrong.
Music has to have key, tonality; the ear de-
mands it as a guide. It is the basic formal
architecture for music.
Stravinsky, as a writer, was mistaken
in believing that Wagner's excursions in-
to chromaticism could not be co-ordinated
with tonality's auditory architecture.
Today, Roger Sessions, Luigi Dallipicolla,
Frank Martin, Aaron Copland, to name a
few, are writing music which is tonal, and
yet, if not strictly adhering to the twelve-
tone row, at least greatly influenced by it.
The Quintet with Piano by Ross Lee Finney,
which was premiered here last Tuesday by
the Stanley Quartet and Marian Owen, is
also twelve-tone and tonal.
That this musical problem is no mere
fad is testified by the fact that it has been
a problem preoccupying composers for cen-
turies now. Attempts were being made to
combine chromaticism and tonality by Ge-
sualdo, Bach, and other composers who lived
long before Wagner.
But today's solution is the most complete
yet. As stylistic evolution, it has opened
a large untapped vista for which the com-
poser can cast his musical thought. This of
course does not mean that old compositional
procedures are outworn, for composers will
write in whatever style suits them. But the
musical scene has been vastly broadened by
the resolution of these two conflicting cur-
rents.

WASHINGTON-GOP leaders don't like to admit it, but they are
sadly convinced that the ailing Mr. Republican, Sen. Robert A.
Taft, will be forced to retire within six months.
This has touched off a backstage battle over control of the
Senate, which the Republicans now run by a slim majority of one.
Taft's successor would be appointed by a Democrat, Ohio's Gov. Frank
Lausche. However, Democratic leaders have already consulted
Lausche privately, and urged him to appoint a Republican. They ex-
plained that the Democrats don't want responsibility for the legisla-
tive logjam that is building up in the Senate. In the end, they figure
they will- gain more votes by leaving the senate in GOP hands.
As a result, Lausche is considering Bob Taft's younger brother,
Charlie, for the expected vacancy.
UC3CARTHY-GO-ROUND
Senator McCarthy is trying to cover up his association with Ralph
Moore, a shady commodity speculator, who was kicked off the com-
modity exchange. Inside fact, however, is that Moore has been acting
as a front for McCarthy on the commodity market. When the Sena-
tor collected $10,000 to fight Communists and diverted it instead to
buying soybeans in his brother's name, the applications were made
out in Moore's handwriting , . . McCarthy has hinted darkly that
Father Leon Sullivan. a Catholic missionary, received an overdose of
Communist propaganda while he languished in a Chinese prison cell.
What upset the Senator was Father Sullivan's comment that he
would rather return to his Red prison than see "McCarthyism" rise
in America. The courageous Catholic declared: "My missionary
career in China ended in a Communist court in which accusations
were taken as facts, charges as proofs, and in which the police
announced that 'defense is not necessary; we never make a mistake;
when we arrest you, you're guilty.' As a result of that experience, I
cling desperately to a principle that is one of the foundation stones
of our democratic way of life, the principle that a man is innocent
until proved guilty . . . If you must betray Democracy in order to
save it. why bother?"

THE JUGGLER, with Kirk Douglas
THIS IS THE best new picture to be shown
in Ann Arbor this summer. It is not a..
great film, but it tells a straightforward story
in an unpretentious and appealing way. Its
Israel location shots are used to advantage
as background and not, as travelogue. Most
of all, it is blessed with a surprisingly strong
performance by Kirk Douglas, as Wonder-
ful Hans, the refugee juggler, who believes
that "a home is what you lose."
The story in many ways was a danger-
ous one, vulnerable to easy sentimentality. -
But Director Edward Dmytryk, working
again after his political layoff, skillfully
skirts the pitfalls. In rehabilitating his
paranoiac hero, he manages to incorporate

AT SALINE . . .
Arms and the Man, with the Saline
Mill Theater Company.
V"TH TONGUE-IN-CHEEK, Shaw sets
out to strip society of its superficialities.
In conducting his campaign of attrition, he
reduces such items as the "higher love" to
the plane of ridiculousness, while war is
revealed as the sport of nations. This is a
comedy but a wry one whose basic reality
is all too close.
The story centers around the love affair
of two Bulgarian "aristocrats" whose mu-
tuality of interest thrives only in the aura
of 19th century romanticism. Underneath
this facade of the "higher love" there lurks
oler interests-for our heroine, for an in-
tensely practical Swiss soldier whom she
has saved from tjhe vagaries of war; and for
the hero, his fiance's servant-girl.
Mixed in with this complex love plot'
there is much talk from the family about
tradition and the delights of war. After
a series of discussions, however, each of
the lovers finds their true mate, but
Shaw leaves us with disturbing questions
about the problems he raises.
Despite the wordiness of this play and
some rather obscure innuendos in the Sha-
vian manner, the production is well paced
and thoughtfully directed.
Bette Ellis as Raina Petkoff manages to
achieve the rather childish sophistication
required of her part. It might have been
clone with a gentler touch, but Miss Ellis

makes it clear that Raina is in love
love.

As Raina's formal lover, Earl Matthews
tends to overplay the "playboy" soldier.
This exhuberance, however, wears off as
the play progresses and Matthews finally
manages to convey his impressions with a
little more tact.
Perhaps the best played role was that
of Captain Bluntschli as done by Ed Bordo.
As the practical suitor of Raina, he mouths
some of Shaw's most telling blows against
the folly of war and the sophistry of ro-
manticism.
Major Petkoff, the father of Raina, is
played by Warren Pickett, who does a ma-
ture, confident job, but tends at times to
become Col. Blimp rather than Major Pet-
koff.
The rest of the cast is adequate. But
the most disappointing feature of the
whole production was the acting of Con-
nie Parker. In a role that required com-
posure, sureness, and a supercilious. air
without frills Miss Parker was completely
ill at ease. Some of her, shortcomings
might be ameliorated if she would learn
her lines.
The costuming appeared authentic, but
Captain Bluntschli could hardly have ap-
peared straight from battle in a freshly
starched shirt. Lighting was good, but light-
ing cues were missed several times during
the first act.
With a few of the rough edges taken off,
this could be a very good production. As it
is Shaw msonsze torarv mont of the nload

not only a fresh redeeming-child and a
very natural redeeming-blonde, but also a
fresh set of plot situations to resolve the
hero's dilemma. Most of them transcend
the simple chase motif. The unifying
theme is the hero's growing capacity for
human involvement. You not only see this
growth occur; you also feel it.
Such grace was not often evident, for in-
stance, in "Man on a Tightrope," another
recent film with a Pagliacci hero. There the
direction and the acting were performed
with talent as great, but the script repeatedly
strayed into too many well-made, palpably
symbolic situations. These "The Juggler"
avoids.
Douglas's contribution is to convince, al-
most at once, that he really is a profoundly
disturbed veteran of German concentra-
tion camps and not just a stock version
of this role. More, however, he develops in
the character a fine ironic intelligence
that makes his mental redemption more
than a gimmick emotion at the end,
The sophisticated attitude-that Douglas
is an inveterate ham-I do not share. He
has contributed to too many good pictures
("Detective Story," "Champion," "The Big
Sky," "Ace in the Hole," "Letter to Three
Wives") to regard his talent as mere stage
energy. He does particularly well by "The
Juggler," a film that deserved him.

Summer Session Band and Summer Ses-
sion Chorus
LAST NIGHT'S program included varied
works for chorus, band, and the two
combined. The Band, under William D. Re-
velli, played with a great deal of precision
and spirit in works ranging from a Mozart
overture (in a surprisingly successful ttans-
cription) to W. C. Handy's St. Louis Blues
March with the composer, a truly great man,
present in the audience.
The most interesting of the band selections
was Gustave Holst's Second Suite. It is based
on English folk tunes, which are surely the
loveliest in the world, and the composer's
presentation of them is most effective.
Byron Autrey, cornet, and Al Townsend,
trombone, played very well in solo numbers.
The Chorus was under the direction of
Alex Zimmerman, visiting fireman for the
summer. The rhythmic precision and clar-
ity of diction of the Chorus were impres-
sive, but the group needs some more work
