Ai xcited Freshman on the War
Last Saturday forenoon six jo-
Sophomores made up a
scheme to out-do the Freshmen at
the Fiel D -

If the first entertainment of
the Lecture Association is to de-
cide the matter, the Association
will have a successful and pros-
perous year. Saturday evening
University Hall was nearly filled,
and only a few scattering seats
were vacant. Mr. Leland T.
Powers impersonated several of
the characters in "David Copper-
field." The entertainment con-
sisted of four acts and worked out
the maid features of the two
important plots of Dick-ens'
book, - the story of Little
Emily, and the account of Uriah
deep's plots and their exposure
by Micawber.
Of course an impersonator like
Mr. Powers is thrown entirely
upon his own resources. He can
borrow nothing from scenic effect
or from a suggestive make-up.
Under these conditions to picture
to the audience the features of any
character is a difficult matter, yet
Mr. Powers was able to hold the
attention of the audience and re-
ceived the applause of the most
exacting. Especially worthy of
mention was his delineation of
the characters of Peggoty, Uriah
Heep, and Micawber. The old
fisherman, perhaps, was the most
difficult for an artist of Mr.
Powers' appearance and turn of
genius, but the study which he
had given overcame any natural
disqualification and the delinea-
tion was a success. Micawber
and ileep, characters of a stamp
directly opposite to one another,
were managed with equal ease.
In the delineation of female
characters the actor was the
weakest, and the entertainment
was so arranged as to give the
greatest prominence to male char- W right, Kay & Co.
