Senator Robinson, Rep., Ind., led
the attack today in a speech of

The Reed speech was heard by

"The Criminal Code," the melo-
drama of prison life which, in New
York in October, 1929, brought a
discriminating first-night audience
to its feet, cheering, will be pre-
sented at 8:15 o'clock tonight by

tory players in the Lydia Mendel-
ssohn theatre. Prof. Chester M.
Wallace, guest director and head
of the drama department at the
Carnegie Institute of Technology,
will have the role of the warden.
He is also in charge of the produc-
tion of this play.
Tonight will be the first time
that Martin Flavin's greatest play
has been seen outside of New York
city where it met with instant suc-
cess. "The Criminal Code" was be-
lieved by many to be the logical
recipient of the Pulitzer prize in
drama for 1930.
Special Rights Secured
Through personal acquaintance
with the author, Professor Wallace
has been able to secure rights to
the play for Ann Arbor production.

ed in a less adequate plant.
Wallace Plays Lead
In the original company directed
by William Harris, Jr., the role of

This play will be given for four
nights, closing Saturday. There will
be no matinee this week. Seats are
