"Rose 'o Plymouth Town." To be taken back to Plymouth in 1621, and to renew an old acquaintance with Miles Standish and the Plymouth colony is a rare privilege, and this the class of 1913 made possible for its friends April 12, by presenting "Rose o' Plymouth Town". The play is a romantic comedy which admirably protrays the spirit of the time it was a crime, punishable at the whipping post, to pick a few ears of green corny when the people lived in daily dread of Indians, and yet appeared out- wardly calm and unmoved by the danger surrounding them. Although most of the players were absolutely without experience of the kind, yet owing to much work and careful drilling, they seemed entirely free from embarrassment on the stage, and the dialogue was spirited and apparently spon- taneous. The characters were protrayed with a keen insight and understanding of the parts. Adele Sotier seemed actually to be the gay and sprightly French maiden, an exotic rose transplanted to a bleak and hostile soil. She threw herself into her part with remarkable enthusiasium. James Forbes, as the bashful younger brother, always raised a laugh by his clever interpretation of Philip de la Noye. Paul Scott was the "fearsome Captain of Plymouth" even before he appeared in armor and with the marks of battle upon him. The part of Miriam, the sweet, timid little Puritan maid, was very well taken by Alice Joesting, and Elva Weber was just what a calm and devout Puritan matron should be. Bessie Stal- lings, as Aunt Resolute, who Hgoes forth to take her daily frightingf' added many humorous touches. Walter Wood took a rather thankless part very creditably, though he isn't cut out for a villain, and Clyde Schmoeller's interpretation of Garrett Foster was good throughout. In fact the play showed exceptional ability and was the result of a great deal of patient effort and hard work. Adele and Clyde will assure you that a natural and concerted sneeze is not the easiest thing in the world to do, nor is it quite so simple as it looks to serve bean porridge and keep up a conversation at the same time. A great deal of credit is due to Miss Naylor, who was tireless in her efforts in drilling the players, as well as to Miss Wempen, who acted as business manager. Between the third and fourth acts, ten junior girls in Grecian costumes and carrying branches of blossoms, gave a very pretty and graceful dance called "The Dance of the Winds," the success of which was due to Miss Bowler's careful train- ing. "Everything but what the name denotes."-Miss MEISER. 116
