These remarks should not be
construed as derogatory to scholar-

time ago. We had relegated it
to the wastebasket or to some

residing at 717 Oakland Avenue

their demands for its publica-

tomer is always right. It is
quite frankly the worstc ontri-
bution we have ever received.
Some prefer their toasted rolls:
I must admit they're good;
But too many I have found
Which taste like charred wood.

Think of a fresh toasted crescent,
So rich and full of meats,
On each and every morning
'Tis the best of all known treats.
Now take this world-famed
Doubtless the best to be had,
Sometimes, well, it's not so good,
But then, again, it's not bad.

Laboring over Mary Gold,
How about it, students?
That, stuff's getting old.
Now I don't mean to criticize
Nor even to condemn--

Two things stand out in the show s
as worthy Critical comment. The
first, that with Florence Reed play-
ing Lady Macbeth, the whole f
drama is given an interpretation
that is unique in its history. It
has become the story of a brilliant-
ly hard and avaricious woman
whose personality is so strong that
she can carry her faltering- hus-
band through to the completion of
a crime that is one of the most
stirring in dramatic literature. And
f when the play draws to its close,
though she is known to be dying, a
victim to the nervous ordeal of guilt
her spirit goes on in her weaker
husband who is bolstered up by the
assurance that he shall never die
by the hand of man born of
woman. Florence Reed makes her
interpretation completely convinc-
ing, and,-finds masterly support in
Lyn Harding as Macbeth, and Wil-
liam Parripw as MacdufT.
The Gcirdon Craig designs are a
brilliane featbre of the mounting
of the Orodwetion, but their artistry
lies in, tie complete subordination
' of the scenic materials to the theme I
of the drama. Craig works on the
theory that the essential nature of
the dramatic appeal of a play may
be condensud and embodied in the
I scenery in such a way that the
I scenic artist and the author may
I seem to be collaborating in telling
the story. To a considerable extent
Craig relies on symbolism. Another
instrument is light, and with it,
color.. And masses can be made tea
convey a dramatic significance. Us-
ing the range of materials an art-
ist can vonceive, Craig has sue-
eeeded in so arranging the ele-
l inents of his designs tliat they
E make an immensely effective back-
ground for the actors as they inter-
prete the drama, while the last
glimpse of the set for each scene
expresses the mood that the action
has aroused.
