Two years ago, at the time of the
Michigan Schoolmasters' convention,
the club attempted its first production
of a play in the original Latin, Plau-
tus' "Menaechmi" being the comedy
selected. Encouraged by the success
of this presentation, Euripides' "Iphi-
genia Among the Taurians" was
staged last year, a Greek translation
Though the student body and fac-
ulty, as well as the town at large
have given their hearty support to
these plays in Latin and Greek, the
production this year will be present-
ed in English, in order that any aver-
sion which the public might have to
drama in a language which they do
not understand may be obviated.
The translation of "Phormio" to be
used was made by Prof. J. Raleigh of
the English department of the engin-
eering college. In addition to main-
taining all the original spirit of this
old Roman play. Professor Nelson s
version has introduced a new ;ceheme
