Greek Play Depic
Wrilliant Cl
People who get their ideas of Greek
fe from looking at dead white plaster
asts of statues and staring marble
onts of so-called classical buildings
ay be surprised to learn that ther
aily life of thef reeks was full of
vely color. This will be effectively
(own in the coming performance of
:phigenia Among the Taurians" on1
arch 29.
Every effort has been made to pro-I
ice this play as it would have lookedI
) the eye of a Greek in the fifth cen-
iry before Christ; and yet, in place
cold, staring white effects, therei
ill be everywhere brightness and
ch color.
Riot of Color

In the matter of dress the chief
ale characters are comparatively in-I
)fspicuous as regards their colors,
r Greek men seem usually to have
orn white garments with only a bor-
er or band of color. But the women!
hey were just the same 2,500 y'aars
go! Almost every shade of the rain-
ow was used in their clothing, and
ie costumers who have charge of
le "Iphigenia" have taken advantage
f this to plan a brilliant spectacle.
he chorus of Greek maidens, who are
>higenia's friends and attendants,
ill wear long flowing tunics of white
iaterial, and with them will be com-
ined veils or scarfs of many delicate
hades.
Professor Kenyon, who has planned
ie aesthetic dances of the chorus,
as used remarkable color combina-
ons in arranging the grouping of the
horus and the figures of their dances.
he heroine, Iphigenia, is distin-
uished from her attendants by a
icher and more elaborate costume.
Barbaric Costume
But the real surprise will come
vhen the spectator casts his eyes upon

AT THE GARRICK, DETROIT
Taylor Holmes has returned to the
Garrick theater for another week's
run beginning Monday inthe comedy
"His Majesty Bunker Bean," which
was seen in Detroit last season.
The comedy is founded on the
Harry-Leon Wilson stories of the same
name. The theme of the play is the
adventures of a young business man
who believes himself the descendant
of Napoleon and the reincarnation of
Ram-Tah, an ancient Egyptian ruler.
The cast supporting Taylor Holmes
is the original one with few excep-
tions.

AT THE MAJESTIC

"The Two Pikers" a skit based on
races and dancing, proved a pleasing
climax to the Majestic show last night.
Probably Frank Walmsley is one of
the most nervous comedians who has
appeared here during the year. His
acting is supported by a well-trained
chorus.
"How can she hang so long by her
heels?" is the logical question to ask
after watching the performance of
Lupita Perea in her aerial swing
stunts. In "The Tamer" is staged the
comeback Af a brow-beaten husband.
Jimmy Lucas and company in "A
Crazy Quilt," awakened mirth with
the mysterious rose which even
brought a smile to the face of a
threatening stage hand.
George and Lilly Garden produced
stirring ragtime from two large xylo-
phones, and varied their progarm by
bits of grand opera arias.
ALL PLATTSBURG MEN MEET
TONIGIT FOR ASSOCIATION
Faculty members and students who
attended the government military
training camp at Plattsburg last sum-
mer will meet at 7 o'clock tonight in
room 243 Engineering building. The
purpose of the meeting is to organize
a. association of military camp grad-
uates in the University. All men who
have attended any government mili-
tary training camps, either at Platts-
burr or elsewhere, are requested to
be preseut at this meeting.
s the Color of
othes of Antiquity
people Iphigenia is living in exile. In
place of the tunics and mantles of the
Greek men, the Taurian soldiers and
attendants will wear baggy tunics
and loose trousers. Strange looking
caps or hoods complete their costume.
And as for color, bold, glaring ef-
fects, strange, savage decorative pat-
terns have been employed, and the
resulting contrast between Greek ele-
gance and moderation and barbarian
garishness will be effective.
Brilliant red, dull golden yellow,
and dashes of black and green will'be
used upon the barbaric garments of
Thoas, king of the Taurians. Upon
his head he will wear a fearful and
wonderful crown, which has been
closely imitated from a crown actual-
ly found in the Crimea, the peninsula
of southern Russia, in which the
Taurians lived in ancient times.
Play Costs Labor
But how do we know that the
Greeks or the barbarians wore such
garments as these? Is it guess work
or not? The members of the Greek
department, who have been studying
these problems for months, say that
every detail of the costuming is
vouched for by representations in
ancient art. Statues, reliefs, and
paintings upon Greek pottery have
been consulted. These last have
proved especially rich in such ma-
terial.
Dr. Butler, who has supervised the
costuming, has looked over hundreds
of representations of Greek men and
- omen drawn by the Greeks them-
senes, as well as pictures of Scythians
and Taurians. From these she has
noted the shapes of the garments, the
decorative patterns used, and every
minute detail of their clothing and be-
longings. The result will be a series
of pictures of remarkable spectacular
effect and great historical accuracy.
