BY IBSkIN CAUSES
Critics Have Disagreed on Merits
Of "A Doll's House," Which
Playmakers Will Stage.
Nora's startling declaration
of independence in the last act
of Ibsen's A Doll's House, which
the Playmakers are now re
hearsing, aff orded such an in
exhaustible theme for violent
anu neaxea discussion wnen they would be subject- to on
was first produced that the sub-LlflllfyM at aTlv tW from a
ject had to be formally barred j
iit social iuncxions in ocanaa
Still more hostile and strenu
ous criticism followed the first
performance of Ibsen's new dra
ma in London. - One critic
classed the whole play as "un
natural, immoral, and in its con
cluding scene, essentially un
dramatic," while today the.clos
ing scene of A Doll's House is
considered as one of the most
dramatic moments in modern
George Moore, the ; well
known English novelist, de
scribed the; heroine as "hard,
dry, mechanical, and illogical,"
while his contemporary, William
Archer, insisted that she was
"one of the most sympathetic
and exquisite figures in modern
The conclusion of this new
play was so unsatisfactory to
the English that several authors
actually ventured to : write se
quels to it. One story The
Doll's House "and After repre
sented Helmer as a drunkard and
Nora as an author of bad novels.
Some critics of the time even
condemned Dr. Rank's conduct
to Nora and called for interven
tion by the licenser of plays.

Professors Oppose Disarmament
In Talks Before Y. M. C. A.
Disarmament was discussed
by Professors W. E. Caldwell,
and E. W. Zimmerman, before
the Y. M. C. A. cabinets Monday
Dr. Caldwell told of the at
tempts at disarmament ante
dating the birth of Christ. At
this time, he stated, he thought
it would be a backward move to
disarm. As long as nations
maintained tariff barriers, there
will be disputes. If the tariff
walls were eliminated,v need of
arms would be materially lessen
ed, according to' the speaker. He
feels that the proper steps to
take should be in the direction
of tariff elimination.
Dr. Zimmerman brought up
this aspect of . disarmament:
"Would there be democracy
should all nations disarm?" Dis
cussing the way in which mother
nature has provided lor some
lotions, he stressed the fact that
richer country whose natural
resources made it possible for
them at any time to mobilize
quickly and maintain an army.
He declared his doubts ; that
disarmament would bring about
a serious depression , in indus
try. The steel and shipbuild
ing industries would be the most
disastrously affected by military
Should a suitable agreement
concerning disarmament be ar
rived at by the nations of Eu
rope, he showed, that it would
enable legislative enactments to
be passed with a view toward
economic improvement. At pres
ent, with the few natural boun
daries between the countries of
Europe all. improvements in
I railroads and other carriers are
effected with a view to swift
mobilization in case of war.

Ohio State Scribe Discovers That
Cantor KnowslAli The Answers
Opinion of Reporter Is That Eddie Cantor Can Be Serious When
He Really Wants To, Except With George Jessel.
."..'" o -
Eddie Cantor can be really
serious when he wants to, -but
he doesn't want to often, is the
opinion of the Ohio State Lan
tern scribe who dared to invade
the hotel suite of Cantor and
George Jessel in Columbus. The
writer tells the story in this way :
"Crushing through a barrier
of admiring chambermaids and
bellhops, the Lantern reporter
gained access to the hotel suite
of Eddie Cantor and George Jes
sel. Cantor stood at the door,
saucer eyes and all, sipping a
glass of milk.'
"Cantor is possibly the most
congenial soul in the world de
spite the fact that he is on the
go every moment. The radio,
magazines, the stage, and a mil
lion telephone calls would wear
out a normal man, but Cantor
seems to bear up well. During

Naturally he will exert every

work where it is essential to do
so, by - the arrangement for

and even by the introduction of
tutoring in those subjects in
which he or some other upper

at Lafayette are rather conser

THINK BEER WILL
Member of Senate Committee
Believes Drink Wffl Not

Two Yale prof essors went on
record last week before a Senate
beer committee as favoring the
return of beer in an effort to
save the country's youth from

professor, of applied psychology
and expert on volatile poisons
at Yale, reiterated Dean Men
dell's latter statement, and esti
mated that it would take eight
or ten quarts of four per cent
beer to cause what he considered
Senator Bingham, a member
of the beer committee, stated
that it was his belief "that the
effects of beer in such . quanti
ties as any normal boy would
consume it. are harmless." "
Professor Henderson charac
terized prohibition as "the worst
experiment in design and execu
tion that I have ever heard of."
He further said that if the sale
of beer were lawful, he would
not have to pour various concoc
tions down his throat for the
sake of politeness to his friends.
Dr. Charles Norris, chief med
ical examiner of New York City,
when called in, stated that beer
contained many valuable nutri
tious solids, most of them de
rived from hops, in addition to
alcohol. "The advantage of
beer in my opinion," he asserted,
"is that it provides us with a nu
tritious drink which is not indigestible,",-

Norris also indicated that
should legislation permitting the
sale of four per cent beer be
passed it was his opinion that a
'large percentage of the male pop-

hard liquor would resort to beer.
