Putting the every-d-iy college life into the Shakespearean plays makes them net only exceedingly Interest ing but at times very amusing. This was demonstrated yesterday after noon at the University of Notre Dame when the University Dra matic club presented Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night," or commonly known as his Christmas play. The play has five cets and nine scenes. To those who delight in the art istry and technique of litttle things well done, nothing could be more satisfying than the acting of Charles J. McCauley as Olivia. This is the first time that McCauley has taken a part in dramatics at Notre Dame. Frederick Georffe Slackford. In the leading role of Duke Orsino, was well fitted for the part. The part of brother and ister, namely Sebas tian and Viola, were taken by Ed ward G. Llndemann and Frank P. Goodall, respectively, their work proving most satisfying to the large audience that filled Washington hall. Giant Makes Hi.
