Dave Eyre Interviewed
"Modem business," commented
Eyre, "requires modern banking
facilities and the already proven
success of the associated system
is due largely to the fact that it
provides better and more varied
service for the depositors and cus
tomers. We believe sincerely we
are. doing our community a great
er service by entering West Coast

staying out of it. As it is we have
joined forces with men of our

our institutions and community."
He added expressions of full
confidence in Sensenlch and hi?
associates of the bancorporaUon.
Sensenich today declined tc
comment on reports that other
banking institutions are being
considered for inclusion in the

has ample funds however, and it
is believed that other deals actual

The Master Builder" is a sym
bolic play and the essential sym
bolism may be more easily under
stood if one substitutes for the
master builder Ibsen himself, the
dramatist. Like the Master
Builder who In his youth built
churches with high towers, so Ib
sen in his first period as an au
thor wrote lofty romantic plays.
Then in his second Deriod he
wrote practical analytical social
dramas, and corresponding to this
period we find that the Master
Builder Is building cosy homes for
In the third period the Master
Builder was going to build noth
ing but castles in the air but
with a solid foundation. This cor
responds to Ibsen's symbolic plays
which have for their foundation
a solid everyday realism. In this
drama the symbolic and the realis
tic parts are so closely wpven to
gether that It Is difficult to tell
where one ends and the other be
gins. The great problems raised in
this drama are (1). Is It possible
to sacrifice too much for the sake
of art? If art is set as the great
ideal in life, one may possibly sac
rifioe life itself as the master
builder does in the play, who had
sacrificed his individual happiness
domestic happiness, and the health
and happiness of his wife and
family, in order that he may be
come the great master builder
(2). Is there not a temptation for
one who wants to rise above other?
as the master builder tries in the
play, to trample others underfoot
as he crushes Knut Brovick and
his son, Ragnar, in the play?
But. Ibsen was not the firs!
one to dramatize these problems
