Comely club will offer its annual
play, "Mr. Pit Passes By", written
by A. A. Milne, at 8:15 o'clock this
evening at the Whitney theater. An
amusing romantic comedy, the whole
play is based on the exact opposites
in nature of Mirden and his wife,
Olivia. The justice of the peace is a
conventional, law-abiding well-inten-
tioned man, while his wife is not soj
w rigorously bound by old-fashioned;
Because of the difference in stand-
ards Marden is greatly perturbed
when he is led to believe that his
wife's first husband is still alive,
while Olivia takes the matter coolly
and with great optimism. Before the1
curtain is finally lowered it develops

become an established institution in

Ypsi Players Deig ht Audience


Featured by the fine acting of Jane
Beyer in J. P. Parson's "Anyday"
and the work of DeLynn D. Whitmire
in "Two Slatterns and a King", by
Edna St. Vincent Millay, the second
performance of the Ypsilanti players
at the Mimes theater last night was
greeted enthusiastically by a delight-
ed audience. The plays were good,1
and they were well interpreted. In.
teresting novelties in staging were.
effected with great success.
The first of the three presentations
was A. A. Milne's "The Camberley
---And Even
Wedding rings!
Are sometimes lost-and found.
This is joyous news to someone,
for the wedding ring advertised
recently as lost has been turned
into the Daily office, and awaits
the owner. Just another evi-
dence of the efficiency of Daily

Triangle". Here a ,British officer re-
turns from India only to find his wife'
ready to-run away with nother 'man.
Several of the lines are quite laugh-
able, but athough intrinsically an
amusing \play the acting was not
carried out so effectively as it' might
have been.
Scoring heaviest of the entire pro-,
gram was "Two Slatternis - and al
King''. Excepting the character' !
Chance, all the-actors in this piece
appeared only as shadows upon a'
white screen illuminated from be-
hind. Reciting their parts with ac-
companying appropriate gestures, this
method was extremely successful.
Last on the program was "Anyday".I
in this two characters are placed in
different positions throughout the
day. In' every one of these Jane!
IBeyei manifested absolute- command!
of herself from the first when she
stubbornly insisted upon going to a
musical comedy that evening, to the
finale when she demanded that heri
husband escort her to the concert.
