Frequently people wonder why one
play makes a success and another a
iailure, more especially when the un
successful production seems the super
ior of its more favored contemporary.
The secret lies in the fact that while
the play that has failed to "make
good" has the greater literary ability,
it lacks the necessary requirements to
make it palatable to the masses. The
author has sacrificed tbe tastes of the
public at the shrine of art, and failure
is his penalty. Herein lies the
strength of Elmer Walters' successful
production, A Thoroughbred
Tramp." The public has been given
what they want, and have so thor
oughly that it stands today at-its
class of attractions. This excellent
attraction is billed for the Bemidji
