redolent of the best of college life, anl i
under all its fun and its plot and
occasional unpleasantness are kernels
of hard sense. It may be a bit younL;,
and there are fcome spots in it which
may have a chance to improve, but
it is youthful, so who'fsoun; and big
that those spots are of little moment
to the "splendid audience that greets
It, and it sure gets a splendid audience
wherever there is an appreciative pop
ulation. Paul Gilmore, who made suoh
vantage in the role of the reformer,
and Mr. Holt is equally effective as
Buntz. Neither of these talented play
ers ever did more imnressive work.
Miss Sutherland is finely cast as a fas-
cinating woman whose circumstances
ihave made an adventuress and who
exercises a potent influence on both
the romance and the campaign.

a good impression when seen here last the following officers were elected:
Origin of Term, "Green Room." The
origin of the term "green room" was
recently propounded to several promi
nent actors by an eastern publication
which was preparing a learned version
of just how the designation came into
nst Among those addressed were
Hicuard Mansfield. K. II. Solium,
Robert Mantell, and Ezra Kendall. In
due time Mr. Kendall received proofs
from the publishers of the versions al
ready sent in. Libraries evidently had
been liberally consulted, as all stage
historians were quoted and there was
much convincing data. Summed up
they all were to the effect that the
room became identified as the "green"
one because of that color being predom
inate in the decoration scheme.'. It
was then up to Mr. Kendall, who, be
cause of his reputation as a humorist
had been requested to be '"facetious."
"This is too grave a question to be
handled in a libt vein." replied Mr.
Kendall, "and I am going to give what
is ray idea of the true version. In the
older theaters there was a large room
provided just off the stage where the
many supernumeraries were sent to
keep them from making noises behind
the scenes. They were usually a very
green lot. and therefore the room in
which they were herded soon became
identified as the 'green mom.' So com
mon became the term. I suppose, that
these rooms were later painted green.
This may not exactly coincide with the
Mansfield theory, but as far as I am
concerned it is as acceptable a theory
as any." Ezra Kenda'.I is at the Illi
nois theater April S, in "Swell Elegant
year, makes an ideal college man, the
part of Dick Seeley fitting him exactly.
He is at his best as stroke of the
crew, though it must be owned he has
little inspiration in the fair maid Doro
thy. But perhaps he was more in
touch with the audience when, in re
sponse to repeated curtain calls at the
end of the second act, he came for
ward to make his little speech in a
hastily adjusted bath robe, and ex
plained in his own clever -way that he
would say more only for his exhaustion
In the race. The cheering for him and
his crew was met in a true college
spirit by repeated cheers from the
"crew" for the lT. of U. whose hos:s
filled the gallery and whose enthusias
lice yells filled the house. And whei
he showed himself in a "V" sweater
.the noise was deafening. But the
cheeis were not. limited to the top rt
the house by any means, for cordial
appreciation greeted the young actor
and his capable crew from every sid:?.
Nearly dividing the honors with the
star was the "bad man" Dave Burley,
the unlovely part taken by Henry H
McClain. It was a difficult part to
play and it was exceedingly well done.
The acting was excellent, but. it was
hard to reconcile the very personable
young man with the wickedness of ihc
part he presented. Clinrjn Clay made
a very capable Jack Randall and Wil
liani Burdett's work as captain of the
crew was above criticism. Jiinsey
the messenger boy, as done by Master
Edward Merrigan, was one of the
bright parts in the play, and the only
"real noise" as the Kid Burns wou'd
say, among the "loidies" was Mame
his sister, a part taken in most capri
hie manner by Miss Frances Scarth.
President C. IJ. West. Moline.
Vice President P. S. Kennedy, Mo
Corresponding Secretary Raloh
Sergeant-at-Arms Louis Siemon. I
Mr. Siemon was also elected dele
gate to the national meeting at New
All Warmed Up. A Sa!t Lake City
paper says of "At Yale." which is at
the Illinois theater April ": If any
fellow got mixed with the boys last
night he didn't let on. If there w.is
a man at the Salt Lake theater who
was so old and dead that he didn't
warm up to shout with that bunch ot
college boys in "At Yale," he must
have kept well in the background. For
it was all youth and college life and
college spirit of the best kind, and
there was such a wholesome bij;
bunch of it that it took the entire au
dience along and carried the enthusi
asm from the parquet .o til-.? galleiy.
The play is a typical college one and

C. Leftwich, President of Creek-
College Seeks to Elevate Race.
Professor John C. . Leftwich, presi
dent of the Creek-Seminole college and
Industrial Institute at Boley, Indian
Territory ,is in the city in the inter
ests of the institution which he repre
sents. To Mr. Leftwich's unaided per
sonal efforts is due the success which
has attended the work of this college
since its founding two years ago. In
his veins runs the blood of botii negro
and Indian ancestors, and he lias chos
en as his life work the upraising and
education of both races. It is not the
education of books that he wishes to
teach so much as that which has to do
with the daily life of his people. The
ability to till the soil, to sew, cook and
impress the necessity for clean livin;
are the main purposes of the Boley in
stitute. Mr. lfiwich will be in the
city about a week, and will be pleased
to meet any who are interested in the
work he has taken up.
Mr. Leftwich will speak at the pray
er service at the First Methodist church

bowels being out of order, and makes
the astounding statement that a sim
ple prescription which is not expen
sive at all may be prepared by any
druggist or at home that will give the
most surprising and gratifying results.
He gives out this knowledge that has
taken years to attain in the hope that
it will beneht mankind, and it is in
tended for all cases of kidney, bladder
and stomach trouble or chronic consti
pation, the relief being felt at once and
the cure remaining permanent. This
is what he says to do:
Go to your druggist and ask him for

those who have taken this prescription
have been benefited at once, and where
they have taken care of themselves
have become cured.
There is a growing sentiment in this
country in favor of medicines of known
composition, and when a prescription
becomes public everyone who takes it
knows the purity of. the ingredients.

polls. The clever author, Avery Hop-
wood, throws a light upon the methods
of the grafters, thugs, blackmailers and
all around rapscallions who run the
government of many large cities, which
is certain to be appreciated by all who
have civil purity, and he does it in a
dramatic, and often in a downright ex
citing manner that will please all who
respond to an intense drama. Romance
is projected into the story by the fact
I that the girl with whom the hero, Bur
ton Clark, is in love with, is the niece
of a sanctimonious hypocrite who, while
pleading the best interests of the com
munity, is in league with Buntz, the
municipal boss, to put through a gas
franchise steal. The opposition of.
gWg'Bgf Clark means the ruin of this scheme,'

Through her interference complications
arise which add to the intensity of the
campaign and of the love affair. The
play is a series of moving plays and
scenes, each more vital than its prede
cessor, the culmination being in an
impassioned speech made by Clark to
a torchlight procession of his adher
ents in front of his house on the eve of
election. This address comes after a
remarkably dramatic episode in Clark's
room in which Buntz had conspired to
blacken at first Clark's personal char
acter, and then that of the girt he loved.
