It is the custom of the society to give a n annual program for the puhli..:, a n d this year's was a great succc::ss. T he performance was given on the eveni ng of D ece mber "i, in the Auditorium. It began w ith a musical number , ··Romany Days," whi..:h had for its so..: tt ing a nx 1m in Mt. V ernon Hall . Eight girls were seated ahout the room singing love songs ~ u the accompaniment of their ukeleles. This ended suJde nly w hen so meom: h.:;trd Mrs. Dunning coming. The pretty act ended w ith a n e ncore in whi..:h t he g irls, Jressed in colorful kimonas, carrying lighted canJ les, sang ··cnod Night Ladies:· The second featu re was ''Lima Bea ns," a one·act nonsense play, in whid 1 Jere Mickel played the part of "he," Faye Emrick t he JXtrt of " she." The play ..:entered about the fact that in the two weeks " he" an d " she" had been ma rried , lima beans had been their chief fare. When " she" fa ils to h;tve lima bea ns for dinn e r o ne Ja y "he" flies into a rage and a comical and cleve r quarrel ensues. The third number, a dance hy Jean a nd Jea net te, a nd o ne hy the Sunflower G irls was as great a success as were t he othe rs. They we re so appre..:iated by the a udience that they had to give another short dance. The last feature, a featu re indeed , was Bill Dallam 's fa mous minstrel show. Bill had his octet te of minstrel ists sitting on the back fence sing ing negro so ngs of every kind and description. N ever were " n iggah chillen" quite so amusing before. Th..:y used their legs to good advantage too, in kee ping time to their sing ing . The fine success of the Everet t program was largely made such by the Jirec tor, M a rie Grabill. PIANO RE C ITA L Early in the spring, Marion Marsh, student with M iss R oyse, ga ve a very interest· ing and pleasing recital. Among the n umbers which stood out espe..: iall y were a Beethoven sonata played with extraordinary ease a nd appreciation, the Liszt Li·zhe· straume, wh ich concl uded t he prog ram, and two Etudes hy an Ame rica n ..:ompose r, Arthur Foote. The numbers were cosmopolitan and very well balanced . Miss Marsh is to be congratul ated for a recital wh ich showed excelle nt musicia nship. THE CO FFER-M ILLER P LA YERS Peru vians were treated to a surprise a nd a treat in the presentation hy t h e Coffe r· Miller Players of Richard Brinsley Sheridan's classic comed y, " The Rivals. " T h e ap· pearance of the players was a rranged for and presented under the sponsorshi p of t he Dramatic C lub. Although the players we re known in Peru only t h rough rep u tat ion , that reputation was seen to he well -earned in t heir appearance here. Of course, to :til w ho know the play, Sir Anthony Absolute, Bob Acres and Mrs. Malap rop stand out invariably, and these characte rs as played hy Mr. Coffer and Miss Mille r indeeJ reached heights of comic perfection. The costum es wer.:: lovely, a nu the sce ne ry was in the mode rn man ner, simple and yet effective. The proJuction w as a p ractical lesso n to those interested in plav prod uction, as well as a h ilarious eve ning to everyonz i·1 the a ud ie nce. Pnae 154
