JWJ seems to be suf

called "sour grapes ra
tionalization." There are,
in Nebraska, undoubtedly
some people whose taste
is such that they can see
little to appreciate in such
a lavish spectacle as the
Ak-Sar-Ben Ball. These
people probably do not ap
preciate opera, long-hair
music, Broadway plays,
Charity Balls, nor Barry
Goldwater, either. How
ever, that is their right.

could really detect the

by the way, was not at
all in evidence at the Ak-

I would suggest that he

I would be interested in
knowing JWJ's sex. The
use of sentence structure, f
analogies and similies in-
dicates masculinity; how-

Writer Predicts
Letter's Effect
My only comment is
that, as a psychologist, I
would predict that Mr. ,
Siegel's letter has b e e n
clipped out and will be
widely quoted when the
Nebraska Legislature
meets in two years to dis-
cuss the University
Budget. This is the type
of evidence which con-
vinces publicity-s e e k i n g
politicians that the Uni-
versity is a hotbed
of Communist activity
and, therefore, not deserv-
ing of tax funds.

On Films
On Sunday evening, a
powerful, hypnotizing ver
sion of Graham Greene's
"The Power and the
Glory' was presented by
CBS-TV. The two-hour
version of the novel was
outstanding television en
tertainment, present
ing the tragic story of a
p r i e s t's martyrdom in
revolutionary Mexico in
the 1930's.
A' film version called
"The Fugutive" was pre
sented in 1648. It can also
be seen on television on
the late movies. Both the
film and television show
are excellent.
Sir Laurence Olivier
played the priest in the
TV version with such
complete control and gen
ius, that his over-powering
performance occa
sionally seemed too com
plex to be a Mexican
priest. Henry Fonda
played the part in the
film, employing his char
acteristic under-playing
for a finely etched per
formance. In the TV version, the
priest had, at one time,
fathered a child, and he
was also alcoholic. In the
film, the priest is alco
holic, but both have suf
ficient shame to judge
themselves as bad priests.
A strong asset of the film
not in the television show
was the juxtaposition of
the priest's flight with
that of a real fugitive of
.law, a bandit the priest
later blesses when "their
paths cross."
Others in the case of
the TV show were Patty
Duke, Mildred Dunnock
(excellent in a bit as a
spinster in prison), Mar
tin Gabel, Thomas Go
mex,' Julie Harris, Roddy
McDowall (almost unrec
ognizable in an imag
inative performance),

George C. Scott and Keen
an Wynn. In the film, Do
lores Del Rio played the
part of a Mexcian woman
who has an illegitimate
child the priest blesses,
similar in character to
the Harris part. Pedro
Armendariz played the
Scott part of the Lieuten
ant who searches for the
fugitive priest.
The film, directed by
four-time Academy
Award winner John Ford,
had a distinct advantage
in its authenticity, a huge
advantage of film over
live or most taped tele
vision. Del Rio and Ar
mendariz, since they are
Mexican, have that inher
ent foreign quality that
Harris and Scott, though
excellent, could not com
pletely put over.
Both "The Power and
the Glory" and "The Fu
gitive" are excellent in
their own right, and
worthy of attention, when
repeated, be sure and see
both and make your own
comparisons . .
A tremendously success
ful film because of act
ing, directing and techni
cal aspects rather than
script is concluding its
run in Lincoln the first
of next week. If you
haven't seen "Splendor in
the Grass," do. Natalie
Wood, Pat Hingle, Audrey
and newcomer Warren
Beatty and the entire cast
give compelling interpre
tations, a combination of
their talents and the di
rection of master Elia
Kazan. An original
screenplay by playwright
William ("Picnic," "Bus
Stop," "Come Back, Lit

dor in the Grass" is a
major film on a compell
ing theme the idealism
of youth is not the reality
of adulthood . . .
