I would have them know, pox on

was created on the Upper Staff has a
single censored criticism been pub-

MAay men's eyes scowl on him who
wrote such dastard lines, as in a
theatre the eyes of men, after a well-

bent on him who enters next, thinking
his prattle to be tedious! True,

from a Business Staff.

When Bernard Shaw wrote his
famous farce, "Great Catherine,"
which the Comedy Club is to present
in the Mimes theatre Tuesday and
Wednesday, January 12 and 13, he
felt constrained to admit another of
his devastatlpg apologies. "Exception'
ihas been taken," he said, "to the title
of this unseemly tomfoolery on the
ground that the Catherine it repre-
sents is not Great Catherine, but the
Catherine whose gallantries and
amours provide some of the lightest
pages of modern history. In reply, I
can only confess that Catherine's di-
plomacy and her conquests do not in-
terst me.
"But Catherine as a woman, with
plenty of character and (as we should
say) no morals, still fascinates and
amuses us as she fascinated and
amused her lovers. There were great
sentimental comedians, these Peters,
Ih liabet s, and Catherines who played
their Tsarships as eccentric character
parts, and produced scene after scene
of furious harlequinade.
"Catherine kept this vast Guignol
Theatre open for nearly half a cen-
tury, not as a Russian, but as a highly
domesticated German lady whose
household routine was not at all so
unlike that of Queen Victoria as
might be expected from the difference

A review, by Vincent Wall.
The outstanding note in the organ
recital Sunday afternoon was the
naive simplicity of the program-
that, and the spirit of Christmas. Con-
sisting entirely of Noels and Carols
from the French, German, Spanish,
and English, the program never grew
monotonous through the sheer art-
istry of Palmer Christian's interpreta-
tion of these numbers.
To those who have attended any of
the twilight organ recitals, the de-
parture from the highly classic usual-
ly presented displayed an entirely dif-
ferent phase of his remarkable talent.
By combining a perfect technique and
registration with a seemingly spon-
I taneous intuition of the spirit of the
Nativity, he succeeded in creating at
the outset an impression that domi-
nated the entire program.
