2 Ontempufi
Topic for today is that perennial favorite of English majors,"
that ever-popular crowd pleader, that good sport and great
American William Shakespeare (or "The Swedish Nightin
gale" as he is better known as).
First let us examine the persistent theory that Shakespeare (or
"The Pearl of the Pacific" as be is jocularly called) is not the
real author of his plays. Advocates of this theory insist the playi
are so full of classical allusions and learned references that they
couldn't possibly have been written by the son of an illiterate
country butcher.
To which I reply "Fauch!" Was not the great Spinoza's father
f humble woodcutter? Was not the immortal Isaac Newton's
lather a simple second baseman? (The elder Newton, incidental
ly, is one of history's truly pathetic figures. He was, by all ac
counts, the greatest second baseman of las time, but baseball,
ala, had not yet been invented. It used to break young Isaac's
heart to see his father get up every morning, put on uniform,
spikes, glove, and cap, and stand alertly behind second base,
bent forward, eyes narrowed, waiting, waiting, waiting. That'i
all waiting. Isaac loyally tat in the bleachers and yelled "Good
show, Dad!" and stuff like that, but everyone else in town snig
gered derisively, made coarse gestures, and pelted the NewtOT
with overripe fruit figs for tlue elder Newton, apples for the
younger. Thus, as we all know, the famous moment came when
I-aac Newton, struck in the head wilh an apple, leapt to hi feet,
shouted "Europa!" and announced the third law of motion:"For
every action there is an opposite and equal reaction!"
Fig for Hie Xev.1in,
Hlow profoundly true these simple word are! Take, for n
aruple, Persorma rtainle Heel Razor Blades. Khave with a
Fersoiina. TliAt's the ad -ion. Now what is the reaction? Pleasure,
delight, contentment, clieer, and facial felicity. Why such a
happy reaction? liecause you have started with the sharpest,
toost durable Made ever 1 toned a blade that gives you more
ahaves, clowr shave, comfortabler shaves than any other brand
on the market. If, by chance, you don't agree, simply return
your unwed Persormas to the manufacturer and be will send you
absolutely free a package of Beep-Beep or any other blade you
think is better.)
But I digress. Back to Shakespeare (or "The Gem of the
Oc-hu" as he wa ribaldly appelated).
Shakespeare' rood, important play is, of course, Hamlet (or,
. it is frequently called, fadMih). This play tells in living color
the story of JlamM, Prince of Denmark, who one night sees a
glost upon the battlements. (Possibly it is a fal he sees; 1 have
a first folio that is frankly not too legible.) Anyhow, Hamlet is so
upset by seeing this ghost (or goat) that lie stabs Polonius and
Brer Bodkin, lie is thereupon banished to a leather factory by
i)ic king, wl bollerr, "Get the to a tannery!" Thereupon
OpMia refuses her food until Itt'-s shouts, "Get thee to a
U-anerv !" Ophelia is w .w that she ebxsf her littl dog out of
iitf. room, crying, "Out, damned Spot!" She is fined fifty shillings
for euwig, but Portia, in aa ekjuenl plea, gets the sentence coro
ijiuImJ to life iiipriwoniftffnt. Thereupon King Lear and Queen
Mal proclaim a ftival complete, with kissing games and
lie-atirg contest. Everybody has a perfectly splendid time until
Banquo's ghost (or goat ) shows up. This so unhinges Richard III
t)mt he drowns his cousin, Butt Malmsey. Tliis leads to a lively
(bVuNfioTj, during which everyone is killed. The little dog Spot,
return to utter the immortal curtain lines :

credit courses are scheduled
from July 5 to Aug. 20
Students will be boused with
private families in all but the
Paris program, according to
Dr. Sheldon Cherney, NSIT
AMLEC director. He feels
that the family setting will
result in more frequent use
of the language
Cherney adds that both the
credit and noncredit courses
will be supplemented by op
tional lectures and trips to
points of historic, cultural or
geographic interest.
Fees for the AMLEC pro
grams are extremely modest
when contrasted with similar
overseas language courses.
This has been made possible
through the family housing
arrangements and special
charter air rates for round
trip travel.
Cherney reports that costs
for credit courses will range
from $625 to $750, and include
tuition, transportation, orien
tation program, housing, two
daily meals and other inci
dentals. Noncredit programs
will run between $525 and $675,
he adds.
An optional eight-day tour
following the course is $125,
and a 13-day tour, $225. These
prices include travel, housing,
three meals daily, services of
a skilled tour leader and cer
tain other extras.
Applications for AMLEC
programs must be received
no later than April 1, 1965.
Additional information on
either the credit or noncredit
programs can be obtained bv
