It has been described as "the play
with 1,000 laughs." "The Traveling
Salesman" is by James Forbes, thi
author of "The Chorus Lady.". As in
his former play, the author has in this
"held the mirror up to nature." and
natural types he has reflected upon
the stage. He has picked out. a quar

natives of a one-horse railroad town
in the interior of Indiana. He has
woven around two of these widely
diversified characters an appealing
love story, not too sentimental, but

And then the author has come to
the fore with an assortment of com

love at first sight of a traveling sales
man for a girlish telegraph operator
