The Abbot Circle 1924 ubiinstigzs 'YQ'ur3eirben" On the eighth of April, some of the students from the German Department gave a very amusing and charming little play called "Giinstiges Vorzeichenn. The story centers around an old German who is very superstitious. Herr Rillberg, as he is called, has a daughter, Karoline, and a niece, Brunhilde, who is also his ward. The father wishes to have Karoline married before she is twenty to some quite well-to-do young man. His friend, Professor Rantenstrauch, tells him that a young friend of his has seen Karoline and wishes to marry her. Herr Holdhans, the suitor, calls to ask formally for Karoline and finds that hehad seen and fallen in love with Brunhilde, not Karoline. He finds out, however, to his great relief, that Karoline is in love with a poor man and will not marry him. Then Holdhans is free to ask Brunhilde to marry him. When Herr Rillberg finds out that Hold- hans is going to marry Brunhilde he is, at first, very angry. But at last he is reconciled to the situation and everything ends happily. Sylvia Shapleigh, as Karoline, was just as modest and submissive as a daughter is supposed to be. In contrast, Hildegarde Mittendorff, as Brunhilde, was very lively and coquettish. Gretchen Vanderschmidt made a splendid old, superstitious, polite German father. Herr Holdhans was supposed to be very embarrassed and ill-at-ease in the presence of ladies. Ruth Davies, in this part, made us fullytappreciate his many qualms. The lovely German songs gave an additional touch of color to the whole gay evening. The jfrenrh Evening The long expected "French Evening" was most pleasantly spent on May thirteenth, and the large French Department widely represented. All about McKeen Hall, pretty French Peasant girls in native costumes, and wearing the head dresses of many provinces wended their way between tables selling boutonnieres or light refreshments, while on the stage a few of the best scenes from lVIoliere's "Le Bourgeois Gentilhommen were played with much "entrain", succeeded by others from " Monsieur Perrechon " by Labiche et Martin. A short modern sayuete depicting the Christmas difficulties of a young Parisian couple in their gift-giving was also presented. French Rounds, Songs and Fables held the audience captive and elicited warm applause, the while a delightful French atmosphere pervaded the entire evening which was a great artistic and linguistic success. 83
