Sees Reservations As "Reassuring."
But, while declaring "the first duty

One-Act Irish Drama and
Fantasy Give Especial
From the sneaking entrance of "Mr.
Y" to the triumphal exit of the "Boy".
the entertainment given last night by
the class In dramatic Interpretation
of the University was a complete suc
cess. The first play, "Pariah," having
little action and dealing with rather
uninteresting problems was the most
difficult of presentation and received
less response from the audience. The
staging was very well done, however,
and the lightning and thunder added
to the color and Intensified the motif
of the play.
"The Workhouse Ward,- with Its
two old fussing Irishmen, Its rich di
alect, and its bare setting, is typical
of the new Irish school of one-act
plays. A serious subject Is treated
with an abundance of humor and
delicate strain of pathos, which was
well brought out in the acting.
It was "the six who pas while the
lentils boiled' and the little "Boy" who
saw them which captivated the entire
audience, especially the children. Be
ing a fantasy it was not supposed to
do anythfac except delight the hear
