'The Melting-Pot"
On Wednesday evening in the
Chapel of the Eastern Kentucky
State Normal, Miss Jeanie Barron
Hurst,. Teacher of Expression,
presented Israel Zangwill's pow
erful drama, 'The Melting-Pot"
in which she won instantaneous
Miss Hurst's portrayal pf char
acter from the witty native of the
Emerald Isle,. "Kathleen, the
Serving Maid' to Mendel Quix
ano," the old music master, was
realistic in the extreme. How
ever, her marked triumph was
achieved in the second and third
acts by her soulful presentation
of David, the Jewish lad fired
with enthusiasm for the cause of
his people, for the hope of op
pressed Israel, salutes the flag of
America, the great "Melting-Pot"
where "the fires of God" are
melting race hatred and bringing
the Jew into his own.
Miss Hurst's further rendition
of the play, David's recital of the
terrible Russian massacre, was
intense with passion and voiced
with wonderful truth and pathos.
The evening throughout was a
memorable one for the people of
Richmond, for in addition to the
artistic work of Miss Hurst the
musical program by Mrs. Kellogg,
Mrs. Johnson, Mrs. Hoskinson,
Miss Bright and Mrs. Ballard was
one of the most . finished and
beautiful ever given by home tal

was especially pretty with its
decorations of pink blossoms,
palms and other potted plants,
this being the work of Miss Gib
son and Mrs. Hume. .7
