Play Producion To Fngaged To Peer
Portray A Famtous
Queens Chuircair

"Elizabeth the Queen", to be pre-
sented March 14, 15, 16, 17, by Play
Production, not only depicts an au-
thentic portion of the life of that
famous queen, but also contains a,
part of Shakespeare's "Henry the
Fourth", which was p 1 a y e d by
Shake-pcare's original company, The
Burbage Players.
Elizabeth liked the theatre, and
was especially fond of the characr
of Falstaff, and it is said that it was
at her suggestion that "The Merry
Wives of Windsor" was written, as
she "wanted to see the merry fellow
in love." In "Elizabeth the Queen",
she calls upon the Burbage Players
in a desperate effort to relieve her
mind, before the execution of the
favorite, Essex.
The advance ticket sale for theI
play has been unusually good, ac- I
cording to Valentine B. Windt, di-
rector of Play Production. Reserva-
tions have been received from To-
ledo, Detroit, and Jackson, as well
as the local requests. The box office
at the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre
will be open afternoons every day
until the opening, with tickets on
sale at 35, 50, and 75 cents.

Prof. Koella Is Interested In
Reorganizing Cosmopolitan Club

At a recent meeting of the Board of
the Cosmopolitan Club at the home
of Charles E. Koella, of the French
department, who has a keen interest
in the organization and its ideals,
plans were made to reorganize the
club in an attempt to make it stand
for what the name implies. The
Board, wasting no time in getting
started, has arranged for an inter-
esting lecture to be given at 8 p.m.
today in Lane Hall by Prof. Benjamin
March, and urges all American and
foreign students interested to attend.
The Cosmopolitan Club has existed
for some time, but has not been able
to live uprAto its ideals partly because
of the lack of co-operation on the
part of the American students. To
Expenses And
Staff Described
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., March 9. -
Twenty million dollars yearly is spent
by the New York Herald-Tribune in
gathering its news, and 24,600 people
in all parts of the world are em-
ployed directly or indirectly by the
paper, according to Wilbur S. Forrest,
chief editorial writer of the Herald-
Tribune, in an interview with the
Harvard Crimson.
Although the Herald-Tribune re-
ceives over 13,000,000 words of foreign
news a year, or enough to fill 51
papers of 32 pages each without ads,
only one half of this is printed, Mr.
Forrest stated. Most of the news
printed by the Herald-Tribune comes
directly from the paper's own sources,
although it does use some news from
other papers to fill space in its first
Among the interesting people em-
ployed by the Herald-Tribune is a
statistics man who can state or easily
find figures on everything which
happens in New York from the num-
ber of inches of snow that have fallen
every hour in a storm to the amount
of money being spent to clean it up.
Another interesting person is a lady
who is employed to do nothing but
take care of the cross-word puzzles
and who, according to Forrest, "is
better than Roget's Thesaurus as a
reference book."

ROCHESTER, N. 7., March 9 -
After part of the seventh grade sci-

dio and the rest by the regular class
room method, the children who
learned their lessons by radio passed
their examinations by slightly higher
grades than the other group.
The experiment has been followed
for more than a year. The plan also
has been the means of interesting
