(Citizen Photo) Nazi Trials Viewed As Precedent In Case Of Disobedient GI Doctor By MICHEUNE KEATING Citizen Drama Critic Christopher Marlowe's "The Tragical History of Doctor Faustus," bringing to a close the current season of plays presented by the University of Ariz o n a d r a m a department, opened a week's run last night at the University Theater. It is a handsome production, staged upon a stunningly stark multi-level set against a vibrantly blue backdrop with intermittent displays of the fiery fumes of hell. Unfortunately, the combination of dramatic prose and b!«ank verse, which Marlowe superbly introduced to Elizabethan theater, keeps the youthful actors hobbled most of the time so that the thoroughly professional setting and effective lighting swamps the performance. Picked up from an earlier German treatment of the same theme, Marlowe used the idea of Dr. Faustus selling his sou! to the Devil in exchange for 2*. years of worldly fame and success as an exposition of the rebellion of the individual agains authority. It posed for the firs time in modern drama the re sponsibility and worth of the in dividual. As Dr. Faustus, George Wai read the lines with beautifull; controlled tones. He was par ticularly effective in the lonj soliloquies when Faustus exarr ines his inner motifs. But, odd ::FL JACKSON, s.c. (UPi)-- Dpes a military officer have the right to question the morality of an order and, if he thinks it immoral, legally disobey it? ;* !!And does such questioning I aftd disobedience have special '''! ^eight when it applies to a ^ doctor of medicine. it ;These are questions that have 'J. arisen conthiuously in the court:' martial of Capt. Howard B. .' Eeyy, an Army doctor, at this Huge recruit training base. The questions on one occasion were niled out of order when raised tie obtain a dismissal of the disloyalty charges against the SlJ-year-^ld dermatologist. A sjfcond tune, the law officer, Qol. Earl V. Brown, ruled the questions irrelevant to the trial. -If the morality issue has not been resolved here, it has elsewhere--in a different time and at the end of another war. And Levy's civilian defense attorney, Charles Morgan, likely will use the argument in a future .appeal, if that is necessary. At the end of World War II, the Allies tried key Nazis as war criminals at Nuremburg, Germany. Nazis argued they had committed crimes against humanity only on orders from their superiors, that they were only following an order and could therefore not be punished for their actions. International jurists held that a man is morally bound to oppose any order that he consider criminal in content. Some of the Nazi defendants' went to the gallows. Levy's defense contends the question is pertinent in the present time and a new war-- Vietnem. Morgan Monday requested a ruling on that point of law from Brown. He held that Levy, believing participation in the Vietnam war to be immoral and illegal, rightfully refused to tran Special Forces men hi dermatology because he felt they were agents who carried out an immoral order from the United States government. The Army prosecutor, Capt. Richard M. Shusterman, objected. "No matter how sincerely he believes the United States is wrong to be in Vietnam," y enough, his performance ex-l pressed his familiarity with Marlowe and blank verse rather than identifying him as a part of the drama itself. He ailed to create a human being or make him a part of the vhole and he played too much on an even keel, without varie- ;y or change or aging. He 'ailed to make a differentiation between Faustus' desire for worldly . acclaim and his dire nner awareness and revulsion for the price he would have to 3ay for it. David Storti made a human, almost jovial, Mephistophilis, which was a relief from the usual leering hamming given the role. Vernon Statier turned in a good bit as a befuddled knight errant. And Robin Lee read Chorus" lines with measured restraint, although the )art seems to hinder the drama's action rather than move t along. The cast is a large one and, 'or the most part, the actors seem unable to make anything of their roles. Marlowe's erratic mixture of comedy and iragedy seemed too much for them. D e s p i t e Marlowe's comic treatment of many of the scenes and the feats of magic ivith food and wine made to fly through the air and disappear, it seems to me the over-all production would have benefited had director Peter Marroney placed more emphasis upon the tragic undercurrents and made Storm Kills 32 NEW DELHI (UPI) - A hail storm and gale force winds lashed Uttar Pradesh and Bihar sUtes during the weekend, killing 32 persons and injuring 362 others, the Indian Express reported today.

If he could show that he was being ordered to train these men simply because he was Jewish and did not believe in our right to be in Vietnam, them it would be relevant. "It is not for him to decide how these men will be used," Shusterman said. "He had no control over them. He was simply ordered to train them in dermatology. His religious or political beliefs are not a defense." Brown then ruled the truth of Levy's statements was not relevant to the case. The question, however, continued to come up. Capt. Ivan Mauer, who said he was a "close freind" of Levy's in his position in the dependent out-clinic at the Ft. Jackson Hospital, told the court he would have done the same he would have done the same thing Levy did if he believed the special forces medics were being used primarily for combat purposes--as Morgan anu Levy contend they are. "If you knew these men were making napalm and thermite grenades (from chemicals in their medical kits) and were being used primarily as a means of entry into Vietnam villages, and that they were primarily used in combat which often resulted in the deaths of others, would you train them in anything other than first aid?" Morgan asked. "No I would not," Mauer GREEN PAPAYA . . . . . .
