Paul Valery, famous French Poet,

Academy to fill the seat made vacantj
by the death of the late Anatole

SOCIAL DANCING
CLASS CONTINUED
Social dancing class has proved
very popular, according to officers of
the summer session, and by the spe-
cial request of those in the class, in-
struction will continue for at least
one more week.
The class in Natural dancing is
working out the project which is to
be presented to the public early in
August. One of the girls in the class
is writing the legend IfoT the play,
and all twenty girls in the *class will3
participate. The performance will be
held in Barbour Gymnasium. No ad-
mission wil be charged

Well, in the first place, the play is
by Shaw; and that, according. to the
hard-boiled critic, places it in the
realm of good plays. "What merit
has the play other than the auth1or's
merit?" asks Mr. Bannal betwen the
second and the third acts, thus turn-
ing the laugh upon himself. "But,"
added the count, "we can't deny that
the actors are fine!"
Shaw has sometimes been accused
of gnomic passages, and, indeed,
"Fanny's First Play," has its share,
but the passages are all so typically
Sahvian, so well selected and so ab-
solutely to the point, that nobody
minds their tendency toward the
aphoristic. And although "fanny'sI
First Play" is one of Jir. Shaw's{
lighter plays, and although he himself3
says that his characters are mere pup-
pets put in the play to "spout Shaw,"
there is still a feeling that Mr. Gilbey
in the person of Charles Edgecombe isE
a very real person. Perhaps that is
because he is a well-known type-the
so-called "respectable" business man,
"respectable" because he is monoton-
ous and keeps out of the public eye.
That, decides Mr. Shaw, is the middle
class standard of morality; the main-
tenance of an inconspicuous position
half way between the too good and
the too bad.C
Another reason why Mr. Gilbey, the
outraged father, disgraced by a way-
ward son, was so convincingly a real
person was Mr. Edgecombe. His in-
terpretation was spirited and com-
plete even to the tapping of his fin-
gers on the arm of his chair when he
was so agitated that words simply
failed him.
Wetzel Draws Comment
Mr. Knox, too, played by Robert
Wetzel, was another type of the self-
pitying righteous man, who feels that
all his work for the last forty years
has been ruined in 14 days by his "en-
lightened" daughter. We never can
feel much sympathy for Mr. Knox be-
cause we know all the time that he
has worked for his position because

he, Mr. Knox, wanted it and not be-
cause he was such a slave for his
family. We are beginning to see
things through Shaw's clear-cut spec-
tacles with all the glamour removed.
This really is contrary to form, to
find 'distinct characterizations in a
Shaw play-but they sem to have been
created some way, if not by the
E author, then certainly by the actors.
And Elsie Herndon Kearns contrib-
uted a great deal to this "creation."
Her interpretation of "Darling Dora"
was superb. Her dialect well studied
and her spirit indomitable. She was
the first of the company to undergo
I the ordeal of holding in one long con-
tinued speeech the major part of an
act . Dora is the girl of the streets,
sympathetically portrayel, and it is
said that she was the model which
Shaw later developed into Eliza Doo-
little in "Pygmalion.''
And in the second act, Margaret,
the missing daughter of the Knox
household, returns, and Amy Loomis
in this role repeats Miss Kearns' act
of holding the audience by a long
recital of her experiences, following
her attendance at a prayer meeting
and her subsequent 14 days at Hollo-
way jail.
Duvallet By Henderson
* Helen Hughes, as Mrs. Knox, and,
Robert Henderson as the bouncing
Frenchman, Duvallet, also have long,
Shavian orations which they articu-
late easily and effectively. And Iwho
can say that Shaw does not create
real characters and contrasts in thet
bland Mrs. Gilbey, who cannot keep
her mind on the .sub ect but who mustt
ask so irrelevant a thing as "What
did you say a concertina was?" right
in the middle of Dora's recital of
Bobby's deviltry. And in the straight-1
faced Juggins who turns out, after all,
into the highly romantic personage of'
the younger brother of a duke! Jug-
gins was such a good butler, due to
Frena Rothier, that somehow every-
one expected something better of him
-but a duke!
The reason for these seemingly ex-
travagant situations was because
Fanny, the author of the play, was
only nineteen. It was her play, and
her birthday; consequently her indul-
gent old father, a man sensitive to an
extreme to anything beautiful, had
her play produced by "real" actors
and judged by "real" critics. Samuel
Bonnell, in the role of the father, had
the difficult task of walking up the
aisle and starting the whole show off
with a monologue. That is a trying
situation, but Mr. Bonnell carried the
part off with spirit.
Critics Are Critics
The critics who came in to judge
the play were obviously not profes-
sional ?ctors: they were, to be sure,
mere critics! But rather clever at I
that. And in their trite remarks upon
the drama in general and upon such'
specific characters as Granville Bar-:
ker, Sir Arthur Pinero and their
caustic digs at Shaw himself succeed-
ed in ridiculing both the author and
the whole profession of criticism with
weapons none too gentle.

IN ROCKFORD CAST

ree--ockjaw, antiraux, and botu-
linus (ripe olive poisoning)-are not
killed by just plain soap and water.
Few People Know Prevention
Few people are aware of this sim-
ple preventive of disease. In fact,
most germs die from simple exposure
Io air and sunlight. Diphtheria virus
is injured by cold, and the germs of
meningitis die when removed from
body temperature.
Disinfection by fumigation, once be-
lieved so necessary, has given way to
the soap-and-water method. Even
with diphtheria, the germs die by
(hemselves. Distinfection is largely
valuable as an indication that persons
are trying to prevent further infec-
tion.
Isolation Effective
There are disease carriers, however,
but isolation usually will render these
nersons harmless in the course of a
few weeks. Only one out of every
thousand persons has virulent germs
of diphtheria in his throat, Dr. Gris-
wold mentioned. This is a negligible
figure, when compared to other
sources of infectioni.
"School children, directly exposed
to disease in the home, should be iso-
lated from the rest for a week. In
case of an exposure of the casual
type--when one child comes down
with measles in the school room,} for
instance-the children exposed should
come to school as usual but they
should be examined individually each
day for a wek. If a child has been
present in a large group where the
presence of a contagious disease was
suspected, he need merely be
watched a week for any unusual dis-
turbances," Dr. Griswold concluded.
