'^^^k$^ Vol. 33, No. 44 COLUMBUS, OHIO, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 28, 1955 Devoted t^ Anio. and Jewrsh Idea CRITICS ACCLAIM "SHOLOM ALEICHEM" AS WE ART, WITH NO SHORTCOMINGS'... When Sholom Aleichem pAld his first visit to America, Mark Twain hastened to welcome the famous Jewish writer and remarked that he was most anxious to meet him "because, you sec, I have been called the Amoricon SholOm Aleichem.'' This true story testifies to the credit of both these beloved authors. Though poles apart as to origin and background, they had in common the gift of poetic and humorous writing, of wise understanding and love for their people. Columbus is fortunate to be In¬ cluded in tho tour of 43 cities ar¬ ranged for Ho word Da SIIva*s original Broadway cast of "The World of Sholom Aleichem." Art and music lovers all over the country arc unanimous in their praise of this production. The Now York Times (Brooks Atkln- fon) wrote: "Creative theatre that ranks with the best that has been done on Broadway . . . pure art with no shortcomings ... a time for rejoicing . . . wholly delight- ful ., . " The Chicago Dally News: . . sheer magic . . . exquisite drama¬ tic entertainment." Sampling: local opinion is the fol¬ lowing response (among many others): Dr. Charlea McGaw, Dep't of Speech, OSU, who has Just publish¬ ed his new book, Acting; Is Bellev- Inj; (Relnhart, New York), wrote: "The World of Sholom Aleichem is both fine drama and good enter- trunment, and Its underlying theme of human kindness gives everyone w4io aces it something to tliink about when hs gets home." Dr. Jloy Bowen, OSU professor, director of Players Club, said: "In his will, Sholom Aleichem asked his friends to refrain from putting up a monument of stone or granite, but rather chose his best and most hilarious story as a memorial. I be¬ lieve thot 'The World of Sholom Aleichem' Is precisely the monu¬ ment which will forever proclaim the greatness of this eminent story teller, humorist and humanitarian."
