"I especially admire the spirit

she said. "In the city, conditions

Looking around the theatre, Miss

on the League building and the Ly-

ever," she said, "for I have heard a
great deal about it from friends of
mine who have been out here be-

Speaking of the part that she is
to play in "Candida," she remarked,
"The part is one that is very grati-
fying to an actress. It has the
glamour that is necessary to make7
a play famous. I believe that this
is one of Shaw's plays that will live,
and live."
Miss Collinge made a great hit

Budget for Summer Session May Be Cut
Because of Inclusion in Figures
for Regular School Year.
Curtailment in items covering operating expenses and equip-
nent of the University were completed yesterday by President Alex-
ander G. Ruthven. Other adjustments including the shifting of help

already been made.
President Ruthven stated yesterday that all cuts except those
affecting salaries have been completed. The Board of Regents will
determine, at its meeting next Friday afternoon, whether faculty
members must take a blanket cut in salaries or whether the reduc-
tions will be made on a sliding scale according to present salaries.
