D)RAMATCS IN FRENCH
Thursday night at 8:15 the French
Club will present their annual French
play, "Le Docteur' Miracle," in the
Mimes theater as the final number in
the course of a number of activities
sponsored by the society.
This play by Messieurs Francis de
Croisset and Robert de Flers, as the
title suggests, is a voodooistic jab at
some of the miracles performed in the
name of the medical prorosson. Theta
are some scenes in it where the sig-
nificance of the action depends on
the adiequate creation of mystic at-
mosphere, somewhat similar to the
Rockford production, "Outward
Bound." To facilitate the achieve-
ment of such effects, Le Cercle has
invaded the field of campus drama-
tics with a one-night lease of the
Mimes theater, and they hope thereby
to present an amusing play which
will appeal in spite of the lingual
handicap.I
Although a complete cat has not
yet reached us it appears that the
very convincing Samuel Bonnell will
carry the title role, assisted by Mile.
Lueette Moulin whose backgrpund of
both French and campus dramatics
should make her quite at home in a
French play, and Thurston Theme, as
well as a number of others who have
combined a study of French with dra-
matic experience.

FRANKINCENSE AND SCORPIONS

"Red Rust" by Cornelia James Can-
non. Little, Brown, & Co. Boston,
1928; $.~
wAfter reading this tale of the Min-
nesota wheatlands one is undecided
whether to burn frankincense or to
stir up the scorpions; for this book,
at times, reaches the Heavens above
while at other times it descends to
the seas underneath. Cornelia Can-
non is at her best in her portrayal
of the atmosphere surrounding' a Swe-
dish settlement on the wheat growing
frontier of Minnesota. She paints a
powerful picture of the crudity and
rawness of a border town, while not
forgetting its abundant vitality and
strength. The description of, the
wheatlands and the life on these farms
can be matched, in contemporary
writing at least, only by Frank Norris'
"The Octopus." One is certain that
here is an. author ready to take up
where Norris stopped.
But, alas, Miss Cannon seems to
think that evil is necessary in order
to make the good stand out more de-
finitely. And so comes the type of
plot which reminds one, distressingly
'enough, of the familiar plots of the
late Gene Stratton-Porter. Once more
the hero of the Limberlost modified
perhaps, walks the range. Matts Swen-.
