The Abbot Circle 192 1 " Wfje J2eigporsf By Zona Gale This play deals with a typical group of country folk. The plot is simple and it is the actress ' interpretation of the characters that gives the life and humour to the play. Who ever thought " Van " Lamb could draw such a long face over her " ailments, " or that Florence Phillips would get so shrilly excited over a " Buffalo Bug, " or Helen Goodale over " a cord of wood. " But they did and made Mis ' Moran, Mis ' Trot, and Ezra Williams " real folks, " as Granny would say, that little old lady whom Elizabeth Whittemore made us all love, with her dislike for carpet rags and longing to do something. Janet Warren was a delightful Mis ' Abel, ruling over this group with her sharp tongue and warm heart. Last but not least, her daughter, Inez, where C. P. Damon was just lov- able, and Peter, the long, lanky, young man, who plainly agreed with us about Inez but to such a degree that he lost his tongue (who ever heard of Mary doing that) as well as control of his limbs in her presence. And only Mary Polk could have been that Peter! All these people found they could, in spite of many personal difficulties, plan and contribute towards a shower of food and clothes for the poor sweet neighbor that Muriel Moxley made in the part of Mis ' Ellsworth, who unexpectedly learned that her nephew was coming to live with her. In this neighborly preparation Peter " forgot himself " and the love story ended happily. Though the little boy did not come, we are gladdened and refreshed by the kindness and sympathy of this group of real neighbors. 76

The Abbot Circle 19 2 1 " E )t Jflortst Mop By Winifred Hawkridge In Mr. Slovsky ' s flower shop many little romances and long love stories come to an end, and Maude, the saleswoman, romantic and sympathetic, takes a real personal interest in each one, planning engagements and weddings as if they were her own. To put a personal interest into the business, Maude, with the consent of Mr. Slovsky, who has great faith in her, and the aid of Henry, the little clerk and general utility boy whose admiration for this young lady makes him a willing listener to the long flights into the flower histories of many of the old customers, has sent to each one complimentary bouquets according to the size of their bills with the shop. On the list appears the item " Orchids for Miss Wells, " an old spinster, whose flower bill with Slovsky ' s had been limited to an Easter lily every spring, which she sent to the fiance, Mr. Jackson, to whom she had been engaged for fifteen years. In order to bring about the marriage Maude has sent them without a card, and Miss Wells, when she appears wearing the flowers, is excited and mystified to find that, according to Maude, they have been sent by some tall, dark man without " dear Mr. Jackson ' s " knowledge. After Miss Wells has gone on into the shop to indulge in some bulbs Mr. Slovsky discharges Maude because of her foolish extravagance in sending his precious orchids to such a customer. Just as she is leaving Mr. Jackson enters to inquire about the flowers which his fiancee is wearing and Maude again comes to the rescue and mysteriously describes the unknown suitor. Miss Wells re- turns from the other room, and a very humorous scene follows, in which Maude is reinstated once more, and receives a large order for white roses and lilies of the valley for the wedding of Miss Wells and Mr. Jackson. Who would believe that Jane could be the important, smart little Henry whom we all loved, and Alex, the gesticulating, business-like Mr. Slovsky? Or that Sandy could become an egotistical, fastidious Mr. Jackson, and Laura the sweet, hopeful Miss Wells? Last but not least there was Maude, whom Miss Morgan played, as only she can do, in the absence of Ruth Hill. Each one did so well that the flower business will always be absorbing, appealing and twice as entertaining as usual. 77
