" In it Corinne Hughes as Dolly Madison and Feril Hess as Aaron Burr played the leading roles. The second play, Alfred Noyes ' " Sherwood " was given May 29th, 1915. The principal parts. Maid Marian and Robin Hood, were taken by Irene Crum and Alma Harniel. In Barrie ' s " Quality Street " Corinne Hughes as Phoebe Throssel cap- tured quite the heart of the imposing captain Valentine Brown, Alma Harmel, and the hearts of the audience as well. In Shakespear-e ' s " .Much Ado Al)out Nothing " given May 8th, 1916, the sparkling, witty comliatants were played by Phyllis Wilkinson, and Lavina Jones. In this the third year of the work of the Club, it has, under the guidance of Miss Margaret Constance, given one play. In December, 1916, Dickens ' Christmas Play, " Cricket on the Hearth " was presented with Marceline Arm- sti ' ong as Dot, and Eleanor Sherrell as John. The Club meetings and the woi-k of putting on the plays have been a pleas- ure and have given an insight into dramatic art. That two hundred dollars was pledged for the Endowment Fund for the Woman ' s College in the Autumn of 1915, the last portion of which pledge will be paid this spring, is something of a proof that play-giving is not without its material side. 82

19 nwin 18 THE DRAMATIC CLUB Until 1915 the College Societies gave the plays at the Woman ' s College. In that year Miss M. Louise Gleckler, head of the Expression Department in ' 14- ' 15 and ' 16 interested the girls in a separate organization for dramatic work and the Di-amatic Clul " ) was formed. Membership in the Clnli has always been determined by two try-outs, the first a reading worked up without assistance, the second an interpretation of a part in a scene of a play. In the second try-out only a very short time is al- lowed in which to read over the lines and arrange for costumes. These try-outs are given before a judging committee of twenty, ten of which are faculty mem- bers and the remainder upper classmen of the Club. The membership of the Clulj is limited to a total of thirty. Five places may ])e filled l)y Academy girls. The first try-outs were on January 8th, 1915. Once a year since that date the candidates for vacancies in the Club have, with more or less fear and trembling, braved the stern array of judges. Under the splendid and sympathetic coaching of Miss Gleckler the Cluli put on four plays. February 22nd, 1915 was given. Charles Nirdlinger ' s ' ' Tlie 81
