The University Dramatic Club will

Hall this evening. The play, which
is entitled "Fennel," is a romantic
drama translated from the French by

tury, which is very unique and in
genious hinges on a contest in violin
construction, in which the successful
contestant will be rewarded with the
hand of the charming daughter of the

on the violin.
No pains have been spared to make
the play of this evonlng even a greater
success than the previous presenta

months of diligent practice has put
the actors in full trim to reflect credit
on themselves and their organization
in presenting their parts. Special
costumes have been received from
Omaha, representing the dress of the
period in which the plot is laid. Extra
puins have also been taken with the
scenery and stage settings in order to
make the play as realistic as possible.

reverence and admiration Americans
feel for the great German. It Is
doubtful If the German- gymnasiat
knows some of Schiller's piays and
poems much better than do American
college students. Who hasn't read
Tell, or Wallenstein or Maria Stuart
or Das Lied Von Der Glocke? How
much pure delight is ours when read
ing the beautiful lines of Schiller s
German. The reader forgets a.t about
the declensions and prepositions and
other grammatical apparatus, and
simply follows him in his ideal flight
to escape the commonplace.
The University should greatly ap
preciate the fact that the German de
partment has gone to so much trou
ble to give the whole university com
munity a Schiller-Abend. As the
program shows, some of the finest
musicians in the city will lend their
aid to make the occasion a memorable
one. Parts of some German plays
will bo given In the original. Suitable
costumes have been sent for. The
committee which has the matter in
charge are planning appropriate stage
Bettings and other decorations. The
plain moral of all this is: Keep your
Tuesday evening free so that you can
spend an hour or two with Schiller.
Johann Chrlstoph Frledrich Schil
ler was born at Marbach in Wurten
berg, Nov. 10, 1759. His father was
an army surgeon. At the age of
fourteen ho entered the military acad
emy founded by the Duke of Wurtem
berg. He first selected law, but after
ward changed p medicine. At the
age of twenty-one he graduated. Even
before his graduation he wrote the
revolutionary drama "Drl Itauber,"
which reflected his feeling of rebellion
against the petty tyranny of the
school. He wus so hemmed in by
the Duke's commands that he was
forced to flee and became an exile
from his country if he would remain
true to his ideals. His life ever after
was one long struggle, his years of
struggle with poverty, his attem.pt to
develop a noble character, his sincere
efforts to understand life, a struggle
against sickness and disease. Yet
he wrote lyrics, dramas, philosophical
treatises, which cannot be "Excelled.
The last ten years of his life were
spent in loving companionship- with
Goethe. He died May 9, 1805, at the
age of 45.
Carlyle says of him: "He was a
high ministering servant at truth's
altar, and bore himself worthily in the
office he held."
