At the meeting of the Woman' club literature department Wednesday afternoon in the library assembly, Mrs. Richard Romey reviewed George Bernard Shaw's play, "St. Joan." Mrs. Romey pointed out th.i Shaw's interpretation of Joan o Arc is different from that o£ many others who have written abou her and urged that the play be read. The play opens wilh Joan's seeking aid lo get to the dauphin of France so that she may help lim do what her voices have told ler--lo raise the siege of Orleans iav the dauphin crowned king o£ France in the Rhiems cathedral and drive the English out of v rance. She is able to see the dauphin -ind accomplish three things, bui vithin a year, she is tried for vilchcraft at Rouen and condemned to die. The play is concluded with an epilog in which a years a f t e r her death, Joan re- urns to the earth and visits the king of France whom she knew is the dauphin. Mrs. Romey said that although many feel that th eepilog is unnecessary, it is important in ounding out Shaw's conception of can's character. --o-ii-Y Hears Talk on Radio; Members Go to Studio of KGLO F.
