Staging and Costuming Above Aver
age; Play Ilas Many Difficul-
ties For Amateurs
(By Jack Br1iscoe)
It is sorrowful that the play pro
duction class plays have received s
much advanced heralding for thei
play "The Rivals," presented las
night at University hall auditorium
The presentation had streaks of fin
acting and taken as a whole was wel
done considering the small number o
people Professor Hollister has tc
choose from. One or two of the actorE
behaved as if they were at home oar
the stage and the others at least show-
ed that they tried hard to be finished
But this was the trouble; several
tried too hard and it was overdone
'The main one at fault was Miss Deiss
-who took the part of Lydia Lanquish.
She had a great many hands and made
one feel that she did not know what
to do with them. She also had a coy
way of holding her head which de-
tracted from her part. Miss Frances
Gordesman as Julia has a fine voice
and good stage presence but also fail-
ed miserably in controlling her hands,
which did wierd antics as she talked.
Servants Overdo
The servants with the exception of
C. Julian Riley, who took the part of
Thomas, and did some clever work all
4overdid their parts, some atrociously.
Watson as Fag had some clever lines
Tbhut did not handle them as well as
R1ley, who was far more humorous
:without being foolish.
By far the most finished perform-.
ance was given by H. L. Ewbank, as
Capt. Jack Absolute. He was perfect-
ly at home all of the time and made
.the audience forget that he was H. L.
dEwbank, while he was on the stage.
Emma G. Leonard as Mrs. Malaprop
and Gail E. Densmore as Sir Anthony
.Absolute had difficult parts and handl-'
+ed them well for amateurs but did
mot have the finish of the professional
as could hardly be hoped for. At
ttimes they were especially good and
,deserve praise for certain scenes,
which ones however I fail to remember
tts I was mixed up after the first three
or four of the fourteen scenes.
Eighteenth Century Setting
At times several of the actors got
lost in the maze of their lines which
with their rather difficut phrasing and
subtle humor were hard to put across.
Taking place in the city of Bath in
1775, the play concerned the love af-
fair of Lydia Lanquish, an exceeding-
ly rich young girl, who lived with
her old widow aunt, Mrs. Malaprop.
She was in love witha young man who
she supposed was named Beverly and
was poor. He turned out to be Cap-
tain Absolute and son of Sir Anthony
Absolute with whom her aunt had
planned to arrange the marriage of
the two. She was unaware that the
man her aunt was forcing her to marry
was her lover and he was afraid to

let her know at first for fear she would
not care for him when she found out
he had money. Other lovers entered
into the complications which were
straightened out at the end. It seems
-that a play somewhat easier might

U. S. Plan Accept^d in Cuba
.Havana, Aug. 11. - Congressional
leaders accepted in part the American
plan for solving Cuban finances. Clv-
11 service will be suspended for three
months to permit reorganization in
the interest of honesty and efficiency
and a project for a foreign loan to
liquidate $50,000,000 in unpaid current
obligations was accepted in principle,
one per cent sales tax is provided.
