In their curricula and others are fo-

is of course the best known. The tech-
nical phases of the drama are taken
care of in a'course of playwrighting
Each student yin this course has his
play given careful 'consideration and
many of them are 'put on by the stu-
dents.
"Baker, the well-known producer,
has taken a great interest in the plays
written' in this course and has taken
some of them and produced them in
his own workshop. Several of our
promising playwrights are products of
this school. I tfiink that the installa-
tion of a campus theater at the Un-
wersity of Michigan would be the
greatest possible addition to the curri
culum."*
Vafvors Shakespearean Work
When asked his opinions concern-.
ing "the study sand actual productioi
of Shakespeare at colleges, Mr. Hamp-
den was decidedly in support of such
a system. "The plays of Shakespeare,"
he said, "are the greatest training to
be had. They offer inspiration to the
amateur and set an example of the
highest order. They are nearly as
worth while fr thought and study as
works of a, sombre'religious charac-
ter. After reading his plays one is
convinced that dramatic art is as deep
and, penetrating as 'religion."
Mr. Hampden was enthusiastic over
the desire evinced for a theater on our
campus. He wishes those ini carge,
the most gratifying success. He said
in closing, "Go to it, it's orth
while.' I'm at your call If you ned
me."

HAMPDEN DISPLAYS
TALENT AS ROMEOa
'(By W. W. .)
Walter Hsampdea appeared In "Rom-
eo and. Juliet" last night at to~ Whit-
cey~ theater before an appreciative,
though somewhat smal, i audience.
Owing to the ovation which he re-
.ceived lat Wednesday night in "Ham-
let," ad the numerous requests for a
reappearance, M.-Hampden consent-"'
ed to return fr last night's engage-
ment.
Mr, Itampden In' his delineation of-
1*omeo last evening, showed admirable
training. Though he is a omparad3ve-
ly young man, he has the ability to
assume a depth of feeing and passion.
His heroic body, Impressive face, and
well modulated, voice fit exactly the
character at Romeo. His- portrayal
was !loyeally conceived and artistic-
ally~ executed.
Mr.. Hainpden had admirable sup-
port. Elste Kearns as Juliet, shared
honors with the star and left nothing
to be desired., J. Harry Irvine as e-
cutio, William' Sauater . as Benvolo,
veteran Annie Hughes as the -nurse,
and 'Saint Clair Bayfeld as Friar Law-
rence_, wreeexcellent. Mabel Moore,
in private life Mrs. Hampden, read the
prologue in 'perfect voice.
NO DANGEROF COAL
SHORTAGE LOCALLY
That there is no immediate danger
of a' coal famine in Ann 'Arbor was

a -statement! given bout by one of the
leading coal dealers. in the city yester-
day. ar
"Wee taking orders for hard
coals. P~ocahontas coal and several
kinCW of soft coal are scarc~e. . No
coal is being shipped in at this
time," was. further stated.
There seems to be little let-up in
the sugar shortage. One grocer said
he always Ilad sugar on hand but hie
only allows one pound to a custom-
en, and that at 15 cents per pound.
