A talk on Jean Cocteau by Owen E. Holloway
Cocteau is basically a Romantic. His aesthetic is one of misunderstanding. But he has no desire to be a ' monument, glorious but unread.' What he is most exercised about, says Mr. Holloway, is 'to vindicate the truth behind all the ties about himself ... to vindicate the truth of his lie.'

Boris Gussman, anthropologist and industrial welfare consultant, has been studying trade unionism among Africans in the Federation and East Africa. He believes that divisions and disputes are bound to increase disastrously for industry as a whole unless employers, in particular, make certain radical, but practicable, changes.
