H is encouraging (o see that this become.s Increasingly true as the assoclullon grows older. The product inn of a Yale play has coma to ho looked upon, not as an exhibition of Immature talent worthy of approbation by thn friends of the college for what It attempts rather than for what It accomplishes, but. as an event of real Intellectual stimulus to the entire university, the faculty not least. This Impression Is deepened and mnde more permanent by the annual publication of tho spring play. "This publication performs a three fold service. It brings sharply .to our attention a piny of Intrinsic merit which cither is not easily accessible, or has for some reason failed to receive the attention which It deserves. U pre terits this play not In Its more accessi ble form ns a written composition, hut In the acting version. H furnishes a permanently valuables souvenir of the event. "Y'alo's Interest in things Russian Is largely due to the enthusiasm of Pro fessor Phelps. To th present edition he has contributed vreface ""d a Carefully prepared Introduction and bibliography, which furnish excellent apparatus for further study. Professor Phelprt speaks of the unique position which this comedy hoins in the pre 'volllngly pessimistic literature of Rus s !a. On the other hand It may be rec ognized at once as essentially Russian In feeling. To those wno took a keen delight In the delicate persiflage, the sparkle and sophistication of 'The Im portance of Being Karnest' the humor of 'Revlzor' mny seem a trifle obvious. The apparent naivete Is, however, Joined with a certain niasslvencss and reality which nothing of Wilde's pos sesses. "As a souvenir the book da of espe cial Interest, In general It follows the lines suggested by last ycarV edition of "The Pretenders.' Eight wood cuts, the cast of characters, a list of former productions, etc., distinguish It as tho record of a particular performance. Not only have tho. preface and Intro duction been furnished by a member of the faculty, but the excellent trans lation of the play Itself by Mr. Man dell completes Its distinctly Yale character.- Our thanks are iue to the asso elation for the production of a hook externally attractive and of genuine value." Professor W. I,. Phelps mid several wood cuts showing the members of tho cast attired In costumes of the early part of the pant century. Despite the assertions of ninny peo ple that "Itovlssor" Is a deep and heavy drama simllnr to "The Hetenders," last spring's production, U still remains what It always has and alwiya will In-, a farcical comedy that Is sure to send those who see It home, with a smile that won't come off. , The following ladles will act as pat ronesses for these performances: Mrs. Onirics F.
