SCENE IN "THE TRAVELING SALESMAN"ILLINOIS
forts to reclaim him are told in a series
cf marvellously dramatic scene?. The
idea running through the play that
there is a function in the scheme of

of course, Mme. Xazimova will appear,
is in a way the antithesis of Nora in
Ibsen's "The Doll's House" typifying

one of Mme. Nazimova'a greatest roles,
but it is her own belief that in "The
Other Mary" she has found a far nob
ler, more to be admired character to
portray. In the supporting cast are
Brandon Tynan. Malcolm Williams,
