'Energetic' Basil Happy

television actor. A question asked
of him was, "do 'you enjoy doing
these University performances such
as King David and Manfred?" His
answer was Dut very directly by
answering of course, or why else
saying would I be here."
To the question whether ho be
lieved television had a real pur
pose, Rathbone stated that he be
lieved from experience, television
is and will be a great industry for
many years to come. There has

Massachusetts Senator:
John CCemnmedlv To Address
UrDDversBty SU'wdemfs, May '
Sen. John Kennedy of Massa
chusetts, who last year came with
in a handful of votes of being the
Democratic Party's nominee for
vice president of the United States,
will address the University May
18. .
Sponsored by 15 student organi
zations, the talk will be held at
10 a.m. in the Union ballroom. The
general public is invited to attend,
and there is no admission charge.
After a 30-minute talk, the 39-
year-old senator will answer ques
tions from the audience.
Nnuf servine his first term as
U.S. senator, Kennedy is the third
Democrat to represent Massacnu
setts in the Senate. Prior to his
election, he served six years as a
member of the U"-S. House of Rep
resentatives. He is a member of the Senate
Foreign Relations1 Committee, Sen
ate Labor and Public Welfare
Committee, Special Committee to
Investigate Lobbying, Speaal Com
mittee to Investigate Labor Rac
keteering, aid Special Committee
on honoring clstinguisnea senawia
of the past.
Just last week, Senator Kennedy
was awarded a Pulitzer Prize for
his book, "Profiles in Courage,
which is an account of the pres
sures endured by senators who
spoke out for what they believed
to be the national interest in op
position to the heated feelings of
their constituents.
Prior to the war and before his
entrance into Congress, Senator
Kennedy was a writer and news
paperman. He represented the
Chicago Herald-American at the
San Francisco Conference, and in
1945 he covered the British elec
tions, and the Potsdam Conference
for International News Service.
In November, 1946, Kennedy
was first elected to Congress. In
1952, he defeated the incumbent
U S. Senator Henry Cabot Lodge,
Jr by more than 70,000 votes in
spite of the fact that President Ei
senhower carried Massachusetts
by more than 210,000 votes. Ken
nedy received the highest vote
ever given to a candidate in either
party for the U.S. Senate in the
history of Massachusetts.
Among the honors received by
Senator Kennedy include: One of
the ten most outstanding young
men in America in 1946, selected
by US. Junior Chamber of Com
merce; the Star of Solidarity of
the First Order, 1952, highest hon

can bestow on any individual;

Award, as "Outstanding States

versity of Notre Dame.
been many fine programs on tele
vision such as "The Lark," which
was previewed last winter. He said
a person can't expect to view ex
cellent programs on his television
set for 24 hours per day, but there
are enough programs to prove
that television is an excellent me
dium of the arts.
Asked if he had heard of Pro
fessor Karl Shapiro's statement on
culture, Rathbone said he had not
and wanted to know further on this
subject. Once explained, Rathbone
said he believed that the Midwest
audiences were the most appre
ciative of all audiences that he had
experienced in his career. The
noted dramatist said he believed
just the opposite of Midwest cul
ture, that from his personal ex
perience the Midwest was cultured.
He said he would like sometime
to talk with Professor Shapiro.
In spite of a most varied and
interesting career, Rathbone is
probably best known for unique
portrayal of Sherlock Holmes, priv
ate detective. Rathbone can never
understand everyone's interest in
Sherlock. Everywhere he goes, he
said people ask him questions
about this character.
Giving up Sherlock many years
ago, Rathbone haspent his time
in numerous television programs
such as playing the starring role
in "The Stingiest Man in Town,"
with the rol? as Scrooge; or "The
Lark" with Julie Harris, Boris Kar
loff and Eli Wallach. Also he has
appeared recently on the Edward
Murrow's "Person to Person"
Appearing in many plays and aha. He also served as the first
