Angell hail , by Lionel Crocker's
class in "Presentation of One-Act
Plays. "Cinderella Married," deals
with her disillusionment after her
marriage to the Prince Charming who
was not quite so charming. "Another
Way Out" is a clever play depicting
the companionate mariage of a
couple who were willing to face the
jeers of the neighobrs who saw noth-
ing but ill in their lives. The third
of the group is "The Pot-Boilers."
This play reveals the secrets of play
direction, the trials and tribulations
of the director, and the feeling, good

Completing a week-end, visit at the
game lodge during which he had de-

treasurer of the Republican national
committee finally spoke of the party
prospects, but eventhen in such care-
fully guarded phrases that it was dif-
ficult to determine just what he
thought of the President's terse state-
nent of his intentions in 1928.
"As a party man," he said, "I be-

Prince Of Wales, Baldwin, Kellogg
And Dawes Laud The Century
Of Frkendliness
(By Associated Press)
BUFFALO, N. Y., Aug. 8.-A span
of stone and steel across the Niagara
river, today stood officially dedicated
to the more than a century of peace-
ful relations between the United
States andGreat Britain.
Dedication ceremonies, attended by
the Prince of Wales, his . younger
brother, Prince George, Vice-Presi-j
dent Charles G. Dawes, the primed
ministers of Great Britain, Canada
and the province of Ontario, Secre-
tary of State Frank B. Kellogg, Gov.
Alfred E. Smith and other officials,
brought a successful culmination 17
years of effort to have the Niagara
crossed at Buffalo by a vehicula4
The common keynote of the speeches
at the, exercises took the form of
mutual British and American pledges
of friendship, despite the outward
clash of interests at the recent Ge-
neva meeting over the cruiser prob-
The official spokesmen of the two
governments, Premier Baldwin and
Secretary Kellogg, touched very
lightly on the Geneva failure, but
Vice President Dawes, who today was
the guest of the Dominion of Canada
in Toronto, seized the opportunity to
declare that the instinct of self-pre-
servation bound the English-speaking}
peoples together in a bond that "will j
never break.",
Addressing himself directly to the
Geneva failure, Mr. Dawes declared
it was "unthinkable" that Great
Britain and the United States, sol-
emnly pledged to the principle of
naval equality, would enter on com-
petitive . building programs "because
i their experts temporarily disagree."
From the beginning the cere-
mony was colorful and carried out in
ideal weather. The international
boundary line at the center of the
bridge was marked by a white ribbon
I extending from side to side, and, at
a signal from the Canadian side, the.
British and American parties slowly
approached each other on opposite
sides of the ribbon. Mrs.. Dawes and
Mrs. W. D. Ross, wife of the lieuten-
ant governor of Ontario, reached for-

electing him next year."
Declines To Comment
He declined very definitely to! be
drawn into discussiondof whether Mr.
Coolidge's name might be brought be-
fore the convention, butrwhen the
conference was over there was a feel-
i that he was convinced the Presi-
dent intended to retire from the White
House March 4, 1929, no matter what
the Republican party did. He wasl
/equally reticent when a discussion'
arouse regarding the next convention
city. When he was asked about San
Francisco's chances he said this:
"The people of the West would be
happy to have the next Republican
national convention held in San Fran-
cisco, and the leaders are very active
in their .4rrts to grave it brought
' focver Probable Candidate
It was suggested that the probable
cauidacy of Herbert Hoover, the
Californian, might be a hinderance
to the San Francisco effort, but Mr.
Hodges onlysmiled and declared
that lhe had said all he wished to say.
He did report that the finances of the
Republican party were in good shape
and that there had been no deficit
since the 1924 campaign wound up
with a surplus. The fact that Mr.
Hodges looked upon the selection of
a candidate as "a test" indicated, it
was suggested, that-he did not expect
Mr. Cooldige's name to be presented,
but he declined to discuss the mat-
ter further nor would he express an }
opinion as to the chances of Secre-
tary Hoover, Vice President Dawes,
Nicholas Longworth, Frank O. Low-
den and the othersi who have been
mentioned tentatively since the White
House emphasized that the President

of his term.
