"A Message from Mars" at the Ol
iver tlieater Saturday night, which
was the crowning ovent of Junior
Week, proved a grand success. It
was undoubtedly tho most stupendu
ous undertaking of Its kind ever at
tempted at Nebraska, and tno largo
audience boro testimony of Its ap
preciation by much applause. The
play Itself Is a strong cine, with a
great moral. Still It is brought out
in a way that causes laughter. Tho
most amusing part is that of tho
skeptical Horace Parker, who is reajly
with a cynical reply to any protest or
admonishing, whllo his predicaments
meet with no sympathy except from
. As an amateur performance it would
bo hard to equal, and tho character
dolineation from thoniosthnnortant
Id" the" more, minor parts was excel
lent. Coach Scott is certainly to be
congratulated on the production. W.
L. Bates in tho role of Horaco Parker
made a good cynical philosopher who
could see nothing but hiinself"und was
J more than anxious to make amends
as soon as convinced- that he was
Dalo Boylos enme in for his share
of the applause, In portraying the
Tramp, and his acting was tho best
of tho evening. Hazel Johnson mado
a pleasing Mary Templar, and Ella
M. Wilson as Miss Martha Parker
acted the old maid well. Arthur
Dlcoy, tho bright man of society with
no particular aim in Hfo, was most
fittingly takon by Searlo IIolmeB.
JnmeB E. Ellis was tho Messenger
and did well In portraying the mystic
personage from Mars who had come
with a task to perform. Bella, tho
servant, was most aptly takdn by
Eula Bates. Those taking the minor
. parts were equally as good as Vhe
Tho scenery was as good as thai
used by any professional company,
and the effects wore most pleasing.
Financially tho play was a success.
Tho committee in charge was: Henry
P. Wunder, chairman and general
manager; Ernest H. Graves, business
manager; Clarenco L. Clark, stage
manager; and Hazel Johnson, Mildred
Bevlns, Dale S. Boyles.
