BETTER ONE-ACT PLAYS
IN THIS YEAR'S CONTEST.
Professor 0t .. Campbell, whose
,pleasingly avid interest in the dra-
ma, generally and locally, induced
him to consent to undergo the
trials and tortures of a judge two:
successive years, has interesting

comparative remarks to make on -
the results of this year's contest.
He states unhesitatingly and un-
fearfully as the firm, sincere opin-
ion of the board of judges that "the
plays as a whole were very much,
better than last year and the final
bill for production should be more'
varied, more attractive, and moref
mature both as to intrinsic quality
and treatment."

Describing the ramifications of
the judging process, Prof. Camp-
bell had some remarks that might'
shed light on the comparative qual-
ity of the efforts last year and
this. "The process of elimination
was far more difficult this year, the
conflict of individual viewpoints,
being at times almost intense, with
each play requiring an elaborate
justification from its partisan."
Contrasted with his remark of lastI
year to the effect that a speedy
judgment was quite posible be-
cause most of the plays were so ob-
viously bad, this statement of dfffi-
culty becomes significant.
"The Subjects," Prof. Campbell
said, "had a distinctly wider range,
deriving neither from literary tra-
dition or facile observation (such
as the prevalence of bootleg plays
last year). There was certainly a
more firm intellectual grasp of the
subject matter bespeaking matur-
ity of conception. The authors had!
not only observed but intelligently
commented on their material. Thej
realization on the part of the au-
thors of the need of particularising
the narrative to fit the dramatic
' form was more consistently pres-
ent."
