With this poi^t in view, the producers, Miller, and Lyies, Sissle and il'.abo, have planned to keep tire "Flat Below," a Negro drama, out of New York for at least four weeks. This unique play is a study of Negro life in Harlem. It has boon In rehearsal for about five weeks and when it has actually entered reality by being acted oir a stage before an 1 audience, then its directore, Clarence 10.
