tBerkeley Square',
Uique English Play,
Read by Fleischman
Having for its theme the singu-
lar subject of the spirit world, the
play, "Berkeley Square," by John
Balderston proved to its audience
,to be more than interesting; it was
unusual. A reading of this play
was given May 4, by Earl Fleisch-
man, as the second in a series of-
fered each Sunday at the League
'Berkeley Square" is an English
play, having been first produced in
Lopdon two years ago. Since the
war, playwrights of that country
have been intensely interested in
ideas concerning the spirit world,
and our relations to it, according
to Fleischman. This is especially
in the liiking of present time with
the 'past and' future:
"Berkeley Square" presents this
idea by the experience of a man,,
who, living in 1928, is suddenly
transferred into the year 1784.
This change in period naturally
confronted its author with the
problem of eombining past and
present in one character and still
keeping a natural sequence. As
Fleischman suggested, there was a
period of 140 years to gap, and the
playwright does not always satisfy
his audience with the bridging of
this gap.
The au*ior seemingly has not
made up his mind from what point
he wants his audience to take the
play. If Barrie had written it, it
would have been a fantasy. As it
is, there is a mixture of comedy,
melodrama, satire, and even ro-
mance, which fails to be complete-
ly convincing.
The charm of the old house that
has come down through the cen-
turies, with its clock that has tick-
ed five generations and its paint-
ings by Joshua Reynolds, is appeal-

Library Commemorates

Commemorating the bimillennium
of Vergil's birth, the University li-
brary is displaying some facsimiles
of original editions of his works, as
well as many rare editions printed
soon after the invention of print-i
In the display in the lobby of the
library are books dating from as
early as 1525. The edition of this
date was edited by Erasmus, fa-
mous writer of the 16th century,
and printed by Johann. The most
important printers of the time
were John Baskerville, and Jacob
Tonson, of England. Many of the
books were printed by the Aldine
family, of Italy..
Of Virgil's works, there are
phototype plates from the original
manuscripts, which are now in the
Vatican library, a copy of the
Aeneid, printed in 1599, and a print
of a mosaic of Virgil which was
excavated near Susa in Tunis, in
The display is especially impor-
tant because Vergil, who lived
from 70 B. C. to 19 B. C., as one of
the first writers, exercised a great
influence on all his successors in

smart and feminine-looking, to fit
the summer vogue. Allover em-
