. There was no twinkling, light-sign, no gorgeous bill board, no unique adver-
tisement walking around on stilts- Just a few hand-drawn postersito announce
our Junior play, fairly reeking with dialects, accents,broguesgoverflowingwith wit,
humor, comical antics, Havoring of charming love scenes, flowing with the arched
coquetry and clever badinage of Jane-Ellen. No publicity was needed, the mere
fact that NTLJ. P. Patterson coached it, it was the annualjunior play, and the mystify-
mg, title, 'cCome Out of the K1tChCH,,, lured the appreciative audience.
There was Ken Qsmun, as Burton Crane, the democratic, handsome north-
erner, who made, not only Jane-Ellen, but his whole feminine audience fall in
love with him. Crane's guest, the submissive Cora Faulkner, a spineless, pretty
girl, too highly sugared, was done perfectly by Jane Patterson. Anne Landry was
Mrs. Faulkner, the domineering mother of the nouveau-rich sort, a typical snob.
Henry Emerson, as Mr. Tucker, with his uthroaty exclamations, stiffened limbs
and 'cwould be young" emotions drew'many laughs from his audience. Tom
Lefferts, in love with Cora, was a funny eloquent poet-fellow, played by Asbury
Dunn. Randy VVeeks an uninteresting, practical southerner, always 'cputting
his foot in it', and unable to rise to an occasion, was played by Everett Murray.
Ah, here is our prize--lWandy, the fat, waddling, superstitious old colored mammy
faithful to her Hlady-baby,'7 Jane-Ellen, who was so delightfully, done by Ruth
Then, there were the Dangerfield children, belonging to a genuine southern
family, each one of whom, in order to save money forihis sick father,put his pride
in his pocket, rented the old homestead to a northerner and served as hired help.
Paul, changing from a quiet, southern gentleman, to a dignified English butler who
had served in the best families, was swell done by Carl Hill. Earl Knight played
the part of c'Brindy," a lovable, pugnacious, younger brother, quarreling constantly
with either Tucker, or his ill-tempered sister, Araminta, well acted by Helen
Labrovitz. Then there was Jane-Ellen whom I will not discuss, for do we not feel
a little contempt for Walt Whitman, when we read his poem beginning- MI sing
song about myself-Fw
