DICKENS''CAROL'' WELL PRESENTED Presbyterian P l a y e r s Are Scheduled to Repeat Play Wednesday. Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" was presented by the Presbyterian Players Tuesday evening to a thoroughly delighted audience in the First Presbyterian church. The work of the cast of 2G was admirable and is a tribute to the work of the director, Mrs. Hobart Duncan. Dr. H. K. "Scrooge" was the most outstanding [or his interpretation and reality and the contrast of his "humbug" attitude ot the first part of the play to his "Merry Christmas" at the end again proved the ability of Mr. Jones to play character roles. Sidney Stott as the "clerk" in Scrooge's office was excellent and Francis Elliott fitted well the cheery role of Scrooge's nephew. The dramatic work of Ottus Pasnau as the solicitor, Ray Rorick as Fezziwlg, that of the ghosts, Gilbert Randall, Mrs. Herman Dirksen, OIlie Easley, also the feminine parts .played hy Mrs. Elliott as JTrs. Fezziwig, Mrs Leslie Valentine as the nephew's wife, and Mrs. Rollin Wcrley a.« Mrs. Cratchit deserve mention. Particutarty pleasing to the audience were the lighting effects in portraying the various vision. which the ghosts revealed to Scrooge and which required the usi of a second screen backstage. The last scene brought the play to a triumphant close with the wish o Tiny Tim, played by Ross Martin ringing out, "Merry Christmas ant ^ God bless us, every one." During the intei'inissicTif) musical selections were played by Mrs. Francis Elliott. The play was to be repeated Wednesday evening at 6:15. Central Lutheran Brotherhood Meets B. W.

Children's Colds ^*^k Yield quicker to quicker double action of STAINIE.SS now. if you prefer New Features Being Introduced in Next Saturday Night Dance One of the interesting features of the old time dance at the armory Saturday night will be the "Firemen's Quadrille," which will be included in the early evening program of the old time dances. Those in charge do not recall that this "square" has ever before been on an old time dance program in the armory. This number will be a change for the dancers and interesting to the spectators.

Aa an Innovation in the later program a new dance will be introduced which is called the "Walkathon Sprint." This dance is one the order of the popular circle two step but involves new and interesting changes and is being offered for the first time on any public dance Door.
