He is drilling the large cast and chorus, nearly 100 talented students in all, for the June shows, and announcement is made that every detail of the April performances will be repeated in June. The mail . order, sale of seats is now on. PRAISE BY AUTHOR Raymond W. Peck, world-famous New York playwright, who wrote and produced the original professional "Castles in the Air" production, came to Lafayette for the Harlequin play and pronounced it equal to the professional offering in many respects, and even better in others. He particularly commended the work of Bddie Kinzel and Bess Franklin, in the comedy leads; Madelyn Markley, Louis R. Lowe, Creenwood, Muriel Knight and others in the various important roles. In Indianapolis, where the play was presented May 1, the critics pronounced "Castles in the Air'' the best college play ever seen there and it broke all box office records. STORY APPEALING The story of the play is particularly appealing, dealing as it does with an American girl's dreams ot a prince charming and her journey to the land of romance where her dream comes true, despite the skepticism of her millionaire guardian and the hostility of designing intriguers in the royal court of Latavia. Her prince renounces the throne that he may give his heart to his American sweetheart. MANY HIGH SPOTS The ensembles are especially thrilling, the music is of the best quality, and the haunting melodies are made particularly striking by the singing choruses so excellently drilled by Mr. Siegfried. The spirit of youth' pervades the entire performance, with a galaxy of pretty and graceful girls to give it the background so essential to the success of a piece of this kind. The additional performances will give many persons an opportunity to see the operetta who were unable Ho do so in April and two capacity houses are expectct. for the play on June J 1. .

Marshall home on State street, the members and guests .enjoying a clever playlet and an anniversary tea. The guests were received in the drawing room by Mrs. Marshall, Sr., Mrs. Henry W. Marshall, Jr., Mrs. William t Taylor, Miss Eleanor Brockenbrough and Mrs. Irene Shoemaker. The play, "Mr. Pickwick Takes Unto Himself a Man," was presented in the ball room on the third floor which served as an ideal 'Little Theater." The stage settings were attractive with antique furniture, and the characters appeared in .their costumes of long ago, making it seem that Mr. Pickwick ' and his associates had really come to life. PICKWICK COMEDY. The first two scenes were laid at Mr. Pickwick's lodgings at Mrs. Bardell's house in Goswell street and in Mrs. Bardell's parlor. The third scene was "The court of common pleas at Guildhall, some weeks later." In the last scene each member had a part and the well coached cast was worthy of the professional stage. Mrs. Charles Herbert Stuart, as the dignified and much misunder stood Mr. Pickwick, was excellent In her part, and and Mrs. Joseph A. Andrew, who portrayed the role of the petite Mrs. Bardell, who took too much for granted, was also happily cast. Mrs. George P. Haywood, Jr., kept the audience in constant merriment in her comedy role of Samuel Weller, the servant, who was blessed with an unusual amount of frankness. Mrs. Cluppins (Mrs. William Blistain) and Mrs. Sanders (Mrs. F. L. Pyke) in their scenes with the plaintiff, Mrs. Bardell, brought forth much applause, i Peggy Tim-herlake made a model son of Widow Bardell. AUDIENCE MERRY. The trial in the third scene brought out much talent. Mrs. E. Burleigh Davidson as Justice Star- 1 ileigh was splendid in her role, and Mrs. Bordon B. Kessler, as the pompeous Sergeant Buzfuz, and Mrs. Frederick Holmes, as Mr. Skimpin, shared honors with Justice Starleigh. The court proceedings provoked much mirth among the guests and more than once "order in the court" was called by the court ushers. Others who deserve special mention were: Tracy Truman (Mrs. Marshall Haywood), Mr. Snodgrass (Mrs. Roy W. Wallace), Nathaniel Winkle (Mrs. William F. Taylor), Mr. Perker (Mrs. William Loomis Heston), Mr. Fogg (Mrs. William M. Crockett), Mr. Dodson (Mrs. Frank B.

Burleigh Davidson and Mrs. Bordon Kessler, receives credit for the excellent coaching of the cast. REFRESHMENTS SERVED Following the entertainment, the guests were invited to the dining room for delicious refreshments. Mrs. Marshall, sr., and Mrs. Jo seph H. Shirk of Peru, a former member, poured at a table covered with a handsome lace cloth and centered with a beautiful iced three-tier cake, surrounded with forty lighted tapers and a wreath of smilax.
