MARRIAGE LICENSES ISSUED TO COUPLES ALGONA, April 26.--Marriage 11- ceenses were issued to Raymond Cook and Catherine Cavanaugh, both of Algona; Frank H. Scovill of Marshalltown and Nellie Godbury of Chicago: George Rahl and Ar- molla Menke, both of Bancroft; Charles Faugust of East Chain, Minn., and Pearl McAninch of Swea City, Mason City Coed Wins Recognition Peggy Senneff's Perform. ance in University Play Praised. Miss Peggy Senneff, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Senneff, 9 Beaumont drive, a student at the "University of Iowa, won especially favorable foment for her performance in the university play, "Another Language," given last week at Iowa City and to be repeated during commencement week. The reviewer of the play says, after describing the play, "Having passed in a hurry over the lesser work, let me hasten to say that my nomination for one of the best comedy performance of the year goes to Peggy Senneff, whoso broad sense of humor, uproarious laughter;, and dull waddling gait kept the audience in gales of laughter. Low comedy; it ia true, but "Another Language" had its best moments in its broadest moments. "Miss Senneff was completely the Grace Haliam of the play -- dull, loud; forever laughing at something endlessly inconsequential, beyond romance and sensitiveness. Her work was one of the better things.'' The critic of the play, who also happens to be a Mason Cityan, Tom Yoseloff, writes, " 'Another Language' is a play about a woman who fights for the more beautiful things in life against the Haliam family; the story of a struggle between shoddy convention and art, between glaring electric lights and the soft glow of candles, between Tuesday night family reunions and the right to live one's own life without family control. "In judging performances, the playgoer is sometimes forced to consider the circumstances under which the actors perform. The fact that Prof. Vance Morton prepared his players on two weeks' notice to fill the vacancy in the schedule left by the late death of 'Hiss! Boom!! Blah!!' 1 makes especially good the performances and serves to excuse those not so good." LICENSES ISSUED AT EMMETSBURG.
