To Play Three Leads
In salutation to the centennial of
the birth of Henrik Ibsen, the Rock
ford Players will present tomorrow
xniglI4 and Tuesda~y Ibsen's great he-
roic epic, "The Vikings," in Hill and-
itorium. Augmenting the performance
will be the painting of the sets in
living light by means of the Clavilux
the famous color organ invented by
Mr. Thomas Wilfred, internationally
known stage artist. Accompanying the
production: will be the second addi-
tional feature, Prof. Earl V. Moore,
of the School of Music, who will
operate the new Frieze Memorial or-
gan for musical effects throghout
the performance.
"The Vikings" has been moved from
the rather cramped quai'ters that Sa-
rah Caswell Angell hall provided to
the more spacious and comfortable
Hill auditorium in order that the tri-
umvirate of artistry-light, music,
and drama-might be utilized to the
most adaptable advantage.
Three Leads
The play itself is Ibsen's famous
epic of the north country, originally
entitled "The Warriors of Helgeland."
Carrying the three powerful leads will
be Katherine Wick Kelly, leading lady
of the company and formerly of the
Cleveland Playhouse, Robert Hender-
son, director of the company, and
,Roman Bohnen, leading man of the
troupe and late of the Goodman me-
morial theater, of Chicago.
Miss Kelly will interpret the part
of Hjordis the wife of Gunnar, the
rich yeoman of Helgeland, who will
be played by Bohne.n. Robert Hen-
derson will act the role of Sigurd the
strong, a viking. These three will
bear the brunt of the heaviest char-
acterizations and parts.
Others of the players who will ap-
pear in the cast in more. minor adap-
tations will include E. Martin Browne,
who will act as Ornulf of the Fjords,
an Iceland chieftain; Marvel Garns
ey, who will be cast as his wife; Paul
Stephenson, who appears as Ornulf's
youngest son; and Lillian Bronson,
assigned the part of Egil, the four
year old son of Gunnar.
Difficult Sets
It is only with the aid of the Clay-
ilux that a proper and justifiable pro-
duction of "The Vikings" can be play-
ed, for s6 many of the sets call for
the picturing of moving objects, such
as ships in a storm- action made
practically impossible with hand
painted sets. With the aid of the
Clavilux these sets can be played from
the organ in light, painted on the
set background by the artist operat-
ing the machine.
Wilfred, in addition to directing the
play, will operate his Clavilux per-
sonally from the console of the ap-
pa.ratus. He has a thorough know-
ledge of the Ibsen mood, having read
him in the original Swedith.
Professor Moore will aid in the ef-
fort to obtain the atmosphere re-

quired by accompanying the showing
with the Frieze memorial organ.
There will be no advance in prices
for the performance, it was announced
by Thomas Denton, business manager
for the compiany. Tickets will be
sold at the usual two prices, 75 cents
for unreserved, and $1 for reserved.
They may be obtained at any of the
State street book stores or at the
box office. Unlike patst policy, there
will be but two performances of "The

its development and influence on other j
nations, and the significant differences t

topics which will be considered. The
work of some of the more bizarre
modern experimentalists will be brief- E

.eetur~A C~er VmIunmbl Ibformation
To Those Who Direct, Superise
School Systems In State
Opening the fourth week of the ser-
s of special education conferenes
fferedl to .Supervisors, principals
achers, and others interested in edu-
ation, four lectures by eminent auth-
rities and specialists are being given
n the auditorium of the University
igh school on the subject of the
enior high school.
These conferences are of much
ractical value to those engaged in
ducation work, since discussions as
well as lectures on the various prob-
cms are included in the program
ach day.
Prof. Joseph Roemer will begin the
,eek's series with a lecture Monday
fternoon on "Extra Class Activities."
'rofessor Roemer is well known as
n authority in the field of the sen-
or high school. He is secretary of
he Southern Central assoiation, and
s 'high school visitor and Professor
f Secondary education at the Uni-
'ersigy of Florida. He is teachin4
everal courses in the School of Edu-
ation this summer.
To Discuss Outside Activities
Ile will'discuss the place and value,
f extra class activities in secondary
chools, and will trace their early his-
ory, pointing out the attainments and
of.tributions of these activities in
igh schools. His discussion of the
lest w.ay-to organize these extra-cur-
icular matters so as to secure the
;ra.test and mst efficient results
ill be of special interest to those
attenoing these lectures.
The Iceture Tuesday will be the irst
of a series dealing with methods of
oaching. It will be delivered by Dr.
Norma D. Solve, the subject being
Progressive Tendencies in the Teach-
ing of English." Dr. Solve has an-
oanced that she will divide her dis-
cx:ssion into four parts: English in its
utilitarian uses, English literature,
anguage, and composition. She will
point out the reason for a different
method of instruction in the fLst two
divisions, and will show how our
present formal grammar is not func-
tioning properly, discussing how a id
where cnmposition ehoud be taught
Mathematics N Subject
Dr. Raleigh Schorling will lecture
on the subject of "Sonme NewdThings
in Teaching Mathematics" on Wednes-
lay. Doctor Schorling was a mem-
ber of the' National Committee on
Mathematics requirements, and has
considerable first hand knowledge of
this pha'se of high school work. He
will outline the new mathematics
program as established by this com-
mittee, and will speak to a consider-
able extent on recent experiments and
discoveries in this department. His
lecture will deal principally with the
ways in which the high school teach-
er may be helped in her teaching of
the subject.

The series will close Thursday with
an address by Prof. W. L. Carr on
"The New Program In Latin Teach-
ing." Professor Carr has developed
this new program in the University
: school and will offer suggestions


on the changing of programs in other
high schools, showing how this can be
accomplisdhed and the results[
that may be obtained under the new
system. This lecture will be of value
to students of Latin as well as to
teachers and principals.
The lectures this week offer much
vauable information to those respon-
sible for the direction and supervision
of the school systems of the state.
Attention is called to the fact that the
arrangement of the series this
week does not correspond to that
published in the bulletin. The chang-
es were made necessary by matters
beyond the control of those in charge.
All the lectures are to begin prompt-
ly at 4:05 o'clock.
