THURSDAY, AUGUST 3, 1922
CRITIQUE~
The following was sent to me by
the Knopf publishing house, and it
may be of more than passing interest
-even though from a publicity sheet
-because the writer involved is a
Michigan graduate:
"How Harold Armstrong, Detroit
lawyer, became "Henry G. Aikman,"
successful novelist, was disclosed to-
day by Alfred X. Knopf, the publisher,
in announcing a new novel by Mr. Arm-
strong.
"In 1919 Mr. Armstrong was a prac-
ticing lawyer in Detroit, a member of
the firm. of Carey, Armstrong, and
Weadock. Before he entered the legal
profession he had done newspaper re-
porting, and his love for writing per-
sisting, he turned out creditable short
stories from time to time.
"He then determined that he wanted
to follow Meredith and Hardy more
than Blackstone and Chase, and he set.
aside a year in which to make good-
or return to the law.
"He obtained a year's leave of ab-
sence from his firm, agreeing not to
use his name as author until-and if-
he should make good in the writing
game and permanently give up the
law. With his wife, who was well
known as the director of children's
Pageants in Detroit, and their daught-
er, he moved, to New York for his
"writing year."
"About this time H. L. Mencken, ed-
itor of The Smart Set, undertook pub-
licly to find a publisher for any merit-
orious manuscript that had "gone the
rounds" unsuccessfully. Mr. Arm-
strong sent in the manuscript of a
novel, 'Zell. It was the only ,one out
of the several hundred Mr. Mencken
received that he"thought enough of to
get Mr. Alfred Knopf, his own pub-
lisher, to undertake.
"What happened then is publishing

history. 'Zell,' by 'Henry G. Aik-
man,' took the popular fancy and be-
came a best seller. It was widely
praised by the critics, and. the central
character, Avery Zell, joined the com-
pany of Lulu Bett, Felix Fay, and
Carol Kennicott as_ the most known
fiction characters of the year.
"In other words, Mr. Armstrong,
lawyer, made good as 'Henry G. Aik-
sman.,
"Now Mr. Knopf has announced Mr.
Armstrong's new novel, which will be
called "For Richer, For Poorer." It
is the story of a marriage, and the
hero is a law clerk. And when it ap-
pears on the bookstands on Aug. 11,
the title page will read "By Harold H.
Armstrong." From now on, its young
author will sail under his own flag.
He has wired his resignation to Carey,
Armstrong, and Weadock; and his
'probation year' in writing .is extend-
ed indefinitely."

FIRST OF SHAKESPEAREAN PLAYS
TO BE GIVEN ON CAMPUS TONIGHT

Arrangements have been completed I opportunity.

The price of admissionI

and the stage has been set up for the
performances which will be given dur-
ing the remainder of the week by the
Shakespeare Playhouse company of
New York, which is including Ann Ar-
bor in its summer itinery. A rough
platform has been constructed on the
campus where the plays will be given
in the old Shakespearean way; out-of-
doors. Burlap walls will enclose the
theater so that as little of the sound as
possible will find its way out. In case
of rain, the plays will be given in the
auditorium of University hall.
"The Taming of the Shrew," by
Shakespeare, will be presented tonight.
This is a well known comedy dealing
with the subduing of a shrewish wom-
an by her husband.
This company of players was organ-
ized by Frank McEntee in 1918 after he1
had received his experience playing
with various well known companies.
According to opinions expressed by
members of the English faculty, the
supporting cast in this company is es-
pecially good.
Tickets are on sale at Wahr's book-
store. Due to the efforts of the Eng-
lish department the prices have been
arranged so that as many students as
possible may avail themselves of this

to a single performance is 50 cents,
while reserved seats are priced at 76
cents. A special price is being allowed
for those who desire to take in all four
performances. Four shows in reserv-
ed seats may be seen for $2.25.
At eight o'clock tomorrow night the
company will present "The Pigeon,"
by the English playwright, John Gals-
worthy. "Twelfth Night" will be play-
ed Saturday afternoon and "The Ad-
mirable Crichton" will be given Sat-
urday evening.
