George Bernard. Shaw is the world’s most distinguished
dramatist. That is nothing to his discredit. George [Bernard
Shaw is a liberalise George Bernard Shaw is a critic of life
and letters. George Bernard Shaw is a socialist. George Ber
nard Shaw is an English Mencken. More than that he is for
ever and eternally criticising, questioning, arguing, asking for
proof, lie is the outstanding English example of the man from
[Missouri. In return George Bernard Shaw is always criticized.
Because he always brings1 down coals of fire on his head, be
cause he is a true intellectual warrior,—that dofrs not condemn
him now and forever, irrevocably, unchangingly, to the limbo
of mistaken social outcasts.

For George Bernard Slia’JW seems always opposed to our
ideals and ideas because of the fact that he stands for what lie
thinks to be right! What poisonous silt is there in that policy?
Why should the world lrtok at him suspiciously as if he were
some “untouchable” leper, infected, infested and unclean? It)
Masses of the people today revolt a'gainst the critical,
questioning, curious, challenging, disconcerting and often un
comfortable searching of fearless, logical, intellectual thought
of which Shaw is the pre-eminent example.'- The multitudes
do not like to be disturbed. It is so much better to be smug,
self-complacent, and reasonably comfortable than to be told
there arc some fajint semblances of room for improvement,
When college students go out into life in this world which
is so critical of the critical Shaw, are they prone to side in
with the common run of people who cannot, tolerate the search
for truth? Are you forming the habit of stereotyped thinking
which will assign to the .junk heap with a snear anything which
does not fit into the narrow structure of social majority pre
judices? When you reajd or hear a criticism of the American
republic, are you going to automatically ignore it by waving
1 lie Stars and Stripes, pull the eagle’s wings or chant the “Battle
llvnm of the Republic” in emotionalized resentment? Many
Americans do, regardless of the justice’of the charge or the
sincerity with which tin- accusation was made.
Judging from college students whom we know there are
some'men and women who will in their attitudes or mind rise
above the “ignominious mob of poltrbonish serfs and goose
steppers” in America, so characterized by Henry Louis' Menck
en. Sime college graduates by their intellectual training will
lie sympathetic to open-mindedness. They might even be willing
to criticize institutions and society even though like Christ,

What greater independence can there he than freedom of
speech and ideas? There are some of us who feel that George
Bernard Shaw, instead of being the undisputed champion of
all warped freaks of human nature, carries dll the capabilities
and potentialities of the age in which he is destined to live, lie
reflects the cosmopolitan spirit and urge of tin- times, lie and '
his kind, despite the unimaginative, conservative opposition to
his philosophy, arc helping to make a better world in which to
live. . ....
Yet: there afre some who shrug their self-satisfied shoulders
at the British playwriter and sigh disgustedly, “Oh. Shaw.”—
