"SEVENTIIHEAVEN"5
A review, by Kennel IiC. Patrick-.
UJnless experience is a poor teacher,
the campus will go wildi over this-
and at the sacrifice of no -standards,
false or otherwise. Any one who says
that "Seventh H-eaven" is not glorified_
and moderni hokum is falsifying; amy
one who thinks that nelodma i easy
to put over with amnateurs and~ an Anns
Arbor audienmce is ignorant. Thie Aus-
tin Strong drama has moments which
make a -'critic falter betw~een love and
duty. Furthermore it takes a reno-
vatedl barn of a theater, with a band-
box stage, and retetl costumes, and~
effects pictutres which fairly blare
with color and deth. "Seventh
fleaven" has its mnoents.
Several remarkable ammnl hard-work-
ing performances, several nmore riic -
ulous entrances amd exits, and a little
terr'ible acting leave their scars on the
audience-a. bit too susceptible except
for the few raucous spirits who refuse
to either weep or grow lumps in their
throats. These almost broke up (o11
scene but tie audience held every-
thing and the drama was saved. At
least one fable was shattered to save
the day for satire-Bud Lewis, making
his first male appearance on a campus
stage, floppied as far as tie limits of
his small part would allow. Another
veteran of tie holiday swogglimgcir-
cuit, Tom ,Dougal, creditable couspir-

tain tie customers. Most of them do
not yet know whether his intentions

Phyllis Loughton does oie of the
finest tiings she has ever (one in the
role of the waltz-lady, Diane. Despite
the fact that she bath to make use of
all but the unmentionable emotions,

Charles Livingstone wins comnen-
dationm rather than bouquets, and testi-
monials above all else. He is unques-
tionably tie hardest working, tie umost
earnest of the lot. The destroyingI
weakness lies in his dialect, which
seems to be a conglomeration of Annaj
Christese and Bad M~annish. It would

to 'say his lines straight, and tie fa-
