TUESDAY, MARCH 28, 1939 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE DRAMA : DIVISION HEARS PLAY READING - DISCUSSION Talks Given at Morning Gathering Mrs. L. R. Roberts, Mrs. Robert Glazer Are Among Speakers The reading of plays was the basis of the program presented at the meeting of the Woman's club drama department Tuesday morning at the Y. W. C. A. with Mrs. Curtis Amen presiding with Mrs. L. R. Roberts, Mrs. Robert Glazer, Mrs. Draper Long and Miss Eleanor McLaughlin as speakers, i Mrs. Roberts pointed out that although most of us do not have the opportunity to see all the plays we would like, there is great satisfaction and lots of fun to be had in reading them. "After all, drama does have a very important place in literature and if one does not familiarize himself with drama, he is denying himself some of the greatest contributions to literature," she said. Can Miss Much "If I have an opportunity to see a play, I can always want to read it because if the lines are clever and subtle and the action last, much can be missed in the production. In-a play, the characters always seem more real and alive than in other forms of literature.' Mrs. Roberts reviewed "Of Mice and Men" by John Steinbeck which received the New York Drama Critics plaque. She sketched She plot of the play which concerns the lives of two California vagrants, one a halfwit and the other his protector, who dream of the day when they can save a little money and buy a farm. Lennie. the halfwit, gets into trouble and George, his friend, shoots him to save him from a mob. True to Life Â· Mrs. Glazer . who- discussed Ibsen and Shaw said that modern drama is that which has been produced between 1S80 and the present and it is the drama made by Ibsen and-his contemporaries and followers in Europe and tte English speaking, countries. , "This movement is-characterized by a definite' attempt to make the drama- thoughtful- and to emphasize the use of psychology," she said. "The result has given us a type of display which is real and true to life. "Ibsen is undoubtedly the leader of modern drama, for he gave the play its modern aims and made the theater to air and discuss social themes. His ability to see many years ahead of his age makes him the outstanding intellectual . and literary force of the nineteenth century. Ibsen's drama is one of thought and ideas and he deals most intimately with human relationships. Critics of Society "Shaw follows the leadership of Ibsen in so much, as both are critics of society, both make the drama realistic and both emphasize the psychology of their characters as well as their audiences. I think we can safely say that Shaw holds a place of distinction and importance in the development of modern drama in the twentieth century. His satire is brilliant and he has a peculiar genius for making serious discussions highly entertaining by his wit and humor. He gives us much to think about. He stimulates and piques us in a most enjoyable fashion." "Women of today should be especially interested in reading Shaw because he is so out and out a champion of woman's right to be on an equal basis with man, sharing duties and privileges alike. Shaw was one of the first dramatists who emphasized the play in book form so that it could be enjoyable reading. London Flower Girl Mrs. Glazer sketched the plot of "Pygmalion" by Shaw, the story of a London flower vendor who is reclaimed from the gutter by a professor of phonetics and developed into something comparable to a duchess. Miss McLaughlin who reviewed "The Masque of Kiings" by Maxwell Anderson commented on the fact that the reader finds in the printed play what directing and casting may have changed on the stage. She told the story of the play which concerns the Mayerling deaths of the Archduke Rudolph and the Baroness Mary Vet- sera. Avvcil Silence Mrs. Long in discussing "Abe Lincoln in Illinois," Robert Sherwood's new" play said that she closed the book with the awed silence which all 1 humanity feels after having been. in.the presence of something profound or something magnificent. "I felt that a well known statue had been lighted from within and that the light from the statue was What Goes on at. the Y. W. C. A.'GymS Mi$s Ann Kingsley Fapibus yCookery Expert Tells About . .

"It is not alone hrough gravity that Lincoln re- Â·eals himself, but through his uperb' sense of humor. "The critics are unanimous in heir praise of Raymond Massey n this first production of the 'laywrights company. Life of Lincoln Mrs. Long told the story of the day which opens with Lincoln the Backwoodsman studying English grammar. In the second scene he meets Ann Rutledge, his sweet- leart, who dies soon after. The aeginning of his political career, his marriage to Mary Todd after an earlier canceling of "the plans the wedding.
