that the audiences were often far ahead of the funnymen in realization that race-
slanted humor is a conscious or unconscious agent of injustice. ... All of us have
heard a story familiar in one setting re-told with a significant local transfer of the
race angles. ... A single sample will suffice for ready recognition of the "adaptable

unhinged one.

The woebegone tailor (Richard Bey) is charmless, yet he is supposed to warm
our hearts and win Miss Kalish's favor. When Miss Kallsh (Cynthia Harris) tells
him that he is "funny," we wonder about her sense of humor. The dialogue veers
from the trivial to the pretentious, as in the actress's statement, "I am a cloud, I
bring unhappi- ness wherever I go. " Mr. Bey spends a good part of the evening
garbed in unsightly underwear. In the play's most ill-conceived moment, he — still

inaccurate condemnation of [for instance] Gynecia only increases our sympathy
for her" (p. 435).

, so that it requires a special training to bring the birds to the ground. It is these
pheasants, the pheasant in its finest possibilities, that we claim to be harder of
