The A b b o t Cir cl 1 9 2 3 ®n Eecetbtng a JStploma You stand, a fearful, weakened soul; Around you presses close the trembling mob. You faint and fainter grow and all control Is gone, and from your lips escapes a sob. From out the deathdike stillness of the place You hear a voice! Tis coldly clear, you start! A dread foreboding stares you in the face. Your name? Ah, no! and wilder beats your heart. Too fast the slender scrolls have disappeared. Oh power of that fair script beyond compare! Oh ghastly woe! Oh tortured soul, so seared By fiery anguish! — Ah, at last! It ' s there! Yours, yours! You clutch it tight. Oh joy, oh bliss! Held ever Life such wondrous thrill as this?

The Abbot Circle 19 Ha proma by Ruth Henry Carmen Luis Aguilar Don Antonio Dona Ana Pepe . Music o joven Musico ciego Adela, Carmen ' s maid . Miriam Sweeney Ruth Pritchard Kathryn Wallace Bessie Korst Marion King Betty Bragg Octavia Matthews . Martha Buttrick " La Broma, " a one-act Spanish comedy, means " The Joke. " In the opening scene Don Antonio, the father, is very nervous and excited and tells the maid that he is called to the office — a little later he tells his daughter that he is going to the station to meet " his new secretary. " On leaving, he promises to return in a few moments. Carmen and the maid, not understanding his extreme nervousness, compare notes and, with the aid of a telegram which Don Antonio has dropped in his haste, they realize that he is bringing home the son of an old friend, hoping that his daughter, not suspecting the young man ' s identity, will fall in love with " the new secretary. " Both girls think it an ideal opportunity to play a joke on the father and they decide to exchange identities, Carmen donning the maid ' s cap and apron. When Don Antonio returns he absent-mindedly introduces the maid as his daughter and Carmen as the maid. In the conversation which ensues between the disguised Carmen and Luis he confesses to her that he is really the son of an old friend and that the two fathers are anxious to arrange a match between their children. By a chance word that Carmen lets slip, Luis realizes that this charming sefiorita is really the daughter. Just as he takes her hand and is about to confess his love for her, Don Antonio, followed by his wife and the maid, Adela, enter. It proves to be " love at first sight " and in a few moments the matter is satisfactorily explained. M. C. S.
