complete assurance in their class-
rooms that they are among kindred,
minds, with no outsiders to disturb
their academic poise.
Supplementing the foregoing, are
the further betterments of the stu-
dent body's morale which come of
precluding those unequipped with
i the proper identifification cards
from the privileges of the univer-
sity and of withdrawing library
books as well. Thus only students
possessing the proper passport may,
have an entree to the facilities of
the University, and that unimpeded

vigor to the appreciation of the
great humanist; they recapture the
full flavor and act as though they
enjoyed it. We are accustomed to
see the rollicking wit of the Folio
dragged out by long faced gray-
beards and toddling maidens. Sir
Toby Belch is the victim of his ap-
petite. And the audience is the!
vi ctim., of his blubberly wit. Good!
Sir Toby. He, by mead and saok,
would have Bacon revised; if drink-
ing maketh not a full man what

more; and he has an artist's eye.
for the picturesque which gives us
some soul filling groups. "Twelfth
Night" also happens to be one of
the plays, rare in Shakespeare,
where feminine charm is a realized
power. Joyce Bland as Olivia is a
beauty who realizes her comliness
but who also has a Renaissance
fullness of being; her's is not the
Scribian passiveness which is but
a static jewel.
But we=must back to Toby. He is
the lodestone of the play, his is the
heavy part. And the fool-he is as
indispensible to "Twelfth Night" as
this period. Character will out;
one can no more hide George Hayes
under the motley than Toby in an
inkwell. His whimsical pathos
sweeps the play with a sweet breath
of sprightly gaiety. Feste the fool
makes a tangible essence of the
talianate Commedia Dell Arte as
significant as a lithe Lombardy

Key Town selling

t

-a new telephone idea

Commercial development men of the Bell
System have originated a new use of the
telephone which is proving economical and
efficient for modern salesmanship. From
importanftcentral towns the salesman makes
periodic visits to customers and prospects
by telephioe.
TO conceive thisidea, to make-it practical

by stlcctin gKey Towns on a basis of most
advantageous rates to surrounding points,
and to sell it as a business practice-all this
illustrates how telephone service is as open as
commodity to constructive imagination.
Key Town selling is one of many idica-
tions of the steady demand, present and to
come;for more and more telephone service.
