"SAND" DELIGIGTS LAfV-MAKEIlS'
Play Writtn by Miss Rebecca Dial Well
Received in Columbia.
The.-following account of the first
perform'ance of -"Sand," the play writ
ten by Aiss Rebecca Dial, daughter of
Senator N. 1. 'Dial, of this city, ap
Ilieared, 'In The -State Friday morning
and is an Indication of the success swith
which tilre play w-as received in Colum
"Sand," played last night before a
goodly nuiber of legislators and their
friends at the Town theater, 'proved to
be both a laughable and thought-pro
voking play. The story has to do with
a neighborhood of backward illiterates
who because of the teaching of two
girls from Winthrop college learn to
read 'and write and to Mve better and
fuller lives. It was the sort of "larn
ing that even -helped rumatiz,," accord
ing to Sam Anderson, admirably played
'by, Palmer McMaster, the old father
who strongly opposed "larnin" at first.
The parts were well chosen and
played 'with an understanding surpris
ing in amateurs. Miss Frances Sylvan,
as Mrs. San Anderson or "Ma" was
amusing and brought roars of laughter
from the interested audience. Miss le
becca Ilial, author and yproducer of the
play, as Minnie Ndagara Jones, was
particularly good, showing a real un
derstanding of the silly, vain back
woods girl with no ambition nor op
liortunity. She nade the lawmakers
laugh a-plenty. W. C. Seagle as Jim
nile Anderson was a real boy and add
ed a great part to the life of the play.
The school teacher, Miss Irene
Warter, as Miss Gary, played her part
well, as did I. M0. Halford as Warren
Anderson, the soldier son of, Sam An
dorson. Miss llise Currell as Mary
Ferguson, Mrs. 1. L. Parkinson as Mrs.
loeck,'lorick lornsby as Liza Anne
loebuclN, S. 'B. Estes 'as Buck Upshaw;
A. 0. V. I loIfman as Sandy Lawton, C.
M. 10leazer as H. A. Hiarrington and
McBride Dabbs as Mr. Peyton, are
worthy of praise.
The play was given in four acts,
the first show-ing the wpoorly arranged
home of tho Andersons and the fami
ly with a mortgage banging over its
head at the time of the appearance of
the school teacher. The final act shows
the home very much improved, thingH
tastefully arranged, 'Mr. and Mrs. An
'derson neatly dressed, Jimmie bothered
over having to wash so muclh, the mort
'gage .paid, and Warren Anderson, n
college gradulate and engaged to marry
the school teacher, Miss Gary.
The play was human and appealing
in its understanding of the adult il
literate., It was given for the benefit
of the illitertacy commission, of which
.Dr. Patterson Wardlaw is chairman.
Dr. Wardlaw made a short talk be
tween theacts telling of the 'good ac
complished duning the year by this
work and said that 15,000 adults had
enrolled in the schools.. Mose Manini,
a Greek of Colum'bia. and Hug'h Ousley
of Darlington, both students in adult
schools, told of the good done for them.

February, 1921, we will render a final
