presentation at the Temple Well Pat
ron IzecLJ-Pronounced An Artistic .
and Financial Success.
Coming close upon tho Dramatic
club's successful presentation of Ber
nard Shaw's "You Jever Can Tell,"
pie success of ti.e German comedy,
"Miller and Mueller," given by the Gor
man club at the Temple last Friday
evening has given a great stimulus to
dramatics In tho University and shown
the great opportunities to be afforded
the university public by the now Tem
ple theatre."
Tho comedy of "Miller and Mueler,"
is'dellctously funny and novel and the
Interpretation given It by tho members
pfcthe dub was fully satisfying. The
staging of tho play Was under tho di
rection of Miss Heppner and was con
sistent German as was tho music of
the evening. That oven those who do
not understand German, had no diffi
culty In following the plot of the play
thru its quite Intricate course, Is a
testimony .to tho acting of the particip
ants. Tho efforts of all were well appre
ciated but perhaps Fritz K. Kruoger,
having the part most capable of amus
ing interpretation, received the most
applause. His loye-maklng was lrre
slstaple as a laugh producer. Miss
Amanda Heppner. played tho part of
Hannchen, the heroine's companion,
very cleverly and has a good stage
presence. F. H. Reinsch, as tho typ
ical German father, capitulated grace
fully In the last act and pronounced hlB
blesBlng freely upon the two young
coupleB who furnished the "entangle
ments" of the plot. Miss Wilhelmlno
Herold, as Frlederike the daughter,
was a very natural, simple, German
girl. Mr. Albert Aron as EmU JMuel
ler, was very -convincing, especially
to those who know him, for his nat
urally quiet manner, was entirely lost
invttie lively part which he played.
Miss Elizabeth Wlttman played tho
part of Frau Schraitye the washerwo
man Mn a charming manner. Hex
"coaching' of E. Miller, the bashful
'lover, was one of tho best scenes in the
pjay. Will Mattlson and Theodore
tftrueger as .the ''Kellner" and 'the
''Lohndlener" tho their -parts, were
small,' added materially to the gen
eral "effect In producing a German at
mosphere. Miss Heppner as Hann
schon, was presented by her friends
'With a large bouquet of roses.
Op. the whole it is the common opln
Ipn of those who attend "Miller -and
Mueller" that It has sot a high stand-
ard for university dramatics, and that
'his effort of the students oj .uerman
in giving such a finished production
is. deserving of much commendation.
The synopsis of the play is given Be-
low: '
1 Act 1 rMr, Forstbach plana to marry
,ls daughter, Frlederike, to the son
.dt an old friend. To prevent this,
Hannchen writes to E. Mueller, 'Frled-
fetlke's lover. The letter Is by mistake
