Storvick was elected vice president, Miss Grace Barnard, secretary, and Mrs. D. K. Van Ingen, director, at the meeting of the Mason City branch of the A. A. U. W. Monday evening at the home of Miss Dorothy Pagenhart, 106 Tenth street northwest. Miss Esther Steinberg was named jrogram chairman and plans were jade for a meeting: to be held Tuesday evening, April 2S at 7 o'clock n the assembly room of the library :or a general discussion of the next year's program. Miss Steinberg will the club delegate to the state A. A. U. W. convention at Ames May S and 9. On Irish Theater. The program was based on the dramatic movement in Ireland and Miss Luelda Carlton led the discussion of the Irish national theater. The Irish theater movement is a recent one', being only 37 years old, Miss Carlton pointed out "The Irish had contributed brilliantly to the theater before the end of the nineteenth century, but a real Irish theater had not been developed." Miss Carlton spoke of the meeting of Lady Gregory and W. B. Yeats at Edward Martyn's. home when the idea of an Irish theater was born. "Countess Cathleen" and 'Heatherfield," the first two plays were produced under police protec- tion, but they were received favorably by critics. In the last year of he experimental period of three years, the Irish National Dramatic company of players was formed by :he Fay brothers. Theater Continued. Funds were made available to continue the theater on Abbey street for another six years. A divergence of opinion began to show itself in the management, Yeats and Lady Gregory wanting the theater to be one of folk drama and George Moore and Edward Martyn, a theater of ideas. It took a turn :o folk drama which became established in its repertory. Now plays of idea as well as folk dramas are admitted and the theater has come to a satisfying maturity. Miss Grace Barnard discussed the works of Padric Colum and St. John Ervine. In sketching the life of .Ervine, Miss Barnard said that worked in London as a clerk in an insurance office at the beginning of his career and became interested in literature. He became the dramatic critic for the London Daily citizen and was known as a dramatist before the war, four of his plays having been given at the Abbey theater, "The Magnificent Lover," "Mixed Marriage," "John Ferguson" and "Mary, Mary Quite Contrary." After the war he resumed his literary career becoming an outstanding Irish dramatic critic as well as a dramatist, Column as Poet "Padraic Colum was born Langford county in 1881 and had an opportunity " to absorb the folk ;ore and popular song while growing up," Miss Barnard said. "He is primarily a poet and his difficulty with dialog has kept him from great achievement as a dramatist, ilthough he has attained real distinction as a lyric poet. 'He entered the ranks of literature when young and in his early life became affiliated with the Abbey theater. He was the -founder of the Irish review and his plays were among the first to be produced at the Abbey theater. In 1923, at the request, of the Hawaiian legislature, he went to Hawaii to compile the legends of the islands." Miss Barnard reviewed one of his plays, "The Lake," which depicts the attachment of the Irish workers to the soil. Miss Eleanor McLaughlin discussed the dramatists, Yeats, Gregory. Synge and Dunsany, sketching their lives and work. Have Your Beautiful Furs Fully Protected against Fire, Theft and Moths by storing them in our especially designed FUK ST.OR- AGE VAULTS. Woton PHONE 6« Ticalilli" Proves Pleasing' Entertainment at High School. "Picalilli," an original three act musical comedy, was presented Monday evening in the high school auditorium. The production, directed jy Mrs. Charles Grippen and writ;en by Margaret Vaughn, was under the auspices of the College "Y". Beth DeVoe acted as the student director. The scenes for this delightful comedy were laid in the lobby of 'The Breakers" hotel in Miami in :he present. Leonaine Breese playing the role of Mable Gooch, lovely pickle fac- :ory heiress, who is taking advan- :age of leap year, comes to the renowned "Breakers" with her two adventuresome companions, Judith Abbot and Crystal Kingsley, ably slayed by Virginia Braby and Babe Kropman, respectively. Guests at Hotel. , Among the other guests at the ibtel are Dr. Paul Lynn, a con- lirmed woman hater, portrayed by 3elbtrt Jackson, and his friend, Larry Reed, taken by Bob Holman. Rudolph Pertwee, Arch Gamm, is the owner of a wonderful pickle recipe, which he intends to sell to Miss Gooch. But just as he is ready :o sell his recipe, it disappears from his room. Certain that the guilty, person is still in the hotel, Rudolph disguises himself as Sherlock Jones, a famous detective, and determines to find the culprit. The- mystery is finally solved when Mr. Pringle, a slightly balmy pickle fancier, played by Roger Downing, innocently produces the valuable document from an old encyclopedia. Mrs. Grey, the housekeeper, played by Patricia Rose, states that she saw her employer. Oscar Chamberlain, the hotel manager,' portrayed by Harold Phillips, place the paper in his desk. Chamberlain confesses his crime, stating that he needed money. However, he escapes and the case is dropped. Enter Romance. In the meantime, the plot is made even more interesting by three romances. Doctor Lynn falls for the irresistible charm of Judith Abbot, while Tex, supposedly a mere bellboy, played by "Babe" Bellows, is revealed as the millionaire owner of the hotel in disguise. He is again united with Crystal, his former fiance. Mrs. Chamberlain, . "multi-married" wife of Oscar,'played by da Togstad, captivates Larry Reed in the meantime. The theme closes with Mabel and Rudolph happily engaged and planning to turn the hotel into a pickle house. Popular songs and chorus numbers were presented through the en-' tire three acts.
