On Tuesday, November 18, the Ora-
torical Association will present Edith
Wynne Matthisoh, Charles Rann Ken-
nedy, and Margaret Gage in Mr. Ken-
nedy's latest play, "The Chastening."
Its recent production in New York,
and the "private" performance in
London-private because the censor
deemed the play "too near the life
of Christ"-both received the highest
praise from the critics. George Ber-
nard Shaw, as an outstanding example,
has said of it, "The presentation is
perfect. The censor's ban is a horrible
scandal: I am sorely tempted to get
out my rusty knife and resume my
ancient warfare. Love to Edith, and my
respectful compliments to Miss Gage.
What a face the firl has!"
There is 'scarcely any actress on
the stage today as genuinely, sincerely
magnificent as Miss Matthison. She is
regarded, literally, in both England
and America as one of the consummate
artists of the time. In her work there
is an amazing finesse, a certain re-
pressed subtlety equalled only by
Maude Adams and Julia Marlowe: her
art is the final, beautiful glow of a
generation quickly being superceded
by a pack of superficial, twilight stars.

At a recent meeting of the National
association , of State universities,
President David Kinley, of the Uni-
versity of Illinois, made the statement
that in one respect at least the edu-
cational system of America is a fail-
ure. "American education," he said,
"is failing to make clear to the stu-
dent a true conception of the spirit
of America." This he laid to a general

cause of all of Premier Mussolini's
worries. The real fear of the split is
due to the fact that the Deputies who
entered Parliament on the Fascist
I ticket are not all Fascisti, but include
many Liberals and ex-Combatants
whose allegiance to the Fascisti
regime is beginning to show signs of
Thus, if the Liberals and ex-Com-
battenti joined the opposition and
' abandoned the Parliament, according
to the Italian custom, the Fascist
Deputies alone would not constitute
the quorum necessary to make the
decisions of Parliament of recognized
legal value and Mussolini would be
J forced to rule without a Parliament.
The significance of the entire sit-
uation to the citizens of the United
States lies in the fact that much of
the unrest and economic difficulties,
which Mussolini is now facing and
which. are threatening to cause his
downfall, may be directly traced to the
I overpopulation of Italy which has re-
sulted since America passed her new
i immigration law.
The most direct cause for the up-
heaval is the arousing of the sym-
pathies of the people by the ex-sol-
diers. If their sentimental appeals are
successful, the next few days will
witness the fall of another great
1 political leader and the overthrowal
of his government.

tanneru Cristian, University or-
ganist, appeared in the seventh con-
cert of the Twilight Organ series yes-
* terday afternoon in Hill auditorium..
The audience was scattered, but ex-'
-tremely appreciative in its response.
The program was well balanced both
as regard to the types of music and
of the composers represented.
Weber's "Jubilee Overture" stood
out foremost in yesterday's recital.
This composition was written for the
fiftieth anniversary of the accession
of Frederick Augustus I to the throne
of Saxony at the time when Weber was
"Musik-Director" at Dresden. The
piece is stupendous in its proportions
and requires great technical skill for
its successful rendition. Mr. Christian
played with a technical brilliance and
gusto that, excited the admiration of
his audience.
Cesar Franck, the founder of the
modern French school of musical com-;
position and an organist of note in
his day, was represented by his well
known "Fantasie." This is a singular
composition, being stately and dra-
matic, reflective and tragic, in turn.
The contrasting moods of the piece
were brought out with force by the
performer by effective and artistic
"American Rhapsody" by Pietro Yon,
at present organist of St. Xaviers,
New York, gave the audience an op-
portunity of hearing a rather dis-
tinctly modern type of composition.
It consists of a varied harmonic
treatment of "Maryland My Maryland,"
"Tramp Tramp Tramp The Boys Are
I Marching," "Dixie" and "Hail Colum-
bia." Several unrelated chords oc-
curring between each of these tunes
and a flimsy layer of contrapuntal
treatment, completed the composition.
