That is the reason we paused, as it were, to get our breath after com posing the first paragraph. It was a precious good thing we paused.

And I want to say right here that I'm done try ing to get a single word of rational conversation out of an actress be tween scenes at a rehearsal of such a plav as '"The Squaw Man." Never again! There was every outward Indica tion of a morning performance with a full audience rather than a re hearsal of "The Squaw Man." Thero were enough of them to till a fair sized collection of orchestra chairs and have somo left over for the boxes. We didn't know "The Squaw Man" required so many people. But Director Harry Andrews Informed us padly that it did, and that besides that, it required a few extra tons of scenery, a prairie schooner or two ' and a lot of things that no audience could ever realize AVe hpied Miss .Morgan across the big foyer, and made a dlv- through the crowd to ward her.
