further declared that nine persons re-,

annually, and four paid the necessary
taxes for incomes of more than $5,-

A review ,by Clarice Tapson.
"The Depths" comes as a bitter pill,
dramatically speaking, after the ro-
mance of "Smilin' Thru" and, more
recently, of "Romeo and Juliet;" but
Jane Cowl administers it with the
same histrionic skill that made her
performances in these other two
vehicles almost institutions.
The similarity between the title of
this play and that of Gorky's "The
Lower Depths" is not-to be ignored,
for the likeness extends to the plays
themselves. A Viennese setting in-
stead of a Muscovian, a little less of
the terrible sordidness present in thej
Russian play, the introduction of a
level of society higher and more ideal-
istic, these are different. But the gen-
eral atmosphere, the general note of
fatality, of the utter uselessness of
struggling, the air of stark tragedy,
all these are here in this new play.

Dr. Hans Mueller, as they are in

remarkable . She is able to convey
