A pleasant hi 5 party was given

For Revenue Only" is a bright,
sparkling comedy in the nature of
a satire on politics. Nobles in the
role of Tom Knowall, a reporter,
space writer and all round liar (for
revenue only) assumes editorial
control of a political organ, The
Evening Blast," for Jefferson Rot
ter, a banker who seeks political
glory and runs for congress on the
third party ticket. Knowall man
ages his campaign incident to
which is a committee meeting
where Knowall succeeds admirably
in. conciliating the various factions
therein. This is a great scene and
the house gets its money's worth.
The newspaper scene is where
the audience roars. It is a realistic
scene. The candidates who have
been roasted in the "Blast" demand
retractions and apologies. They
get a terrible drubbing Irom the
courgeous Bohemian. It is a great
show and deserves S. R. O. houses.
