The Goodman jam session, one of the best we've ever beard, was a lulu of a lagniappe. We've always wanted to quarrel with Mr. John Hersey, whose "Bell for Adano" we thought made the Italians quaint and rather childish and the Americans noble, high-minded and gentle. His Major Joppolo is a character, all right, but In the stage version of "Bell" the Italians fail to come up to scratch. It's always been our conviction that the Italians are among the most intelligent people In the world, and Mr. Hersey isn't going to break that down, either with play or book. His play, by the way is as much of a hit as his book, and was staged with distinction. Fred-ric March is the major, and Tito Vuolo comes back to Broadway Jn a comic Italian character which makes his return less auspicious, but generali speaking, A Bell for Adano" has about the weight that the book had, which means that it'll run on Broadway for a Jong time.
