DRAMATIC EFFORTS OF
THE ROYAL FAMILY" CLEVERLY
PRESENTED BY THIRD
FLORENCE HOSTETLER IN STAR RILE
Large Crowd Witnesses Play Horse
play by Band Members av
Not without flawB, but withal clovor
In its presentation was "Tho Royal
Family," tho Junior class play given
at itho Oliver last night. Tho cast
was a stronger ono than is usually
soon in class, dramas and tho coBtum
ing and scenic offects wero unusually
elaborate In their character.
Tho play, which was capable of
much effective rendition, doalt with
tho lovo affairs of a princess iri ono
of thoso Goorgo .Darr McCutcheon
lands of Imagery, it offorod roles for
a largo number of persons and on
gaged practlpally all of tho dramatic
talont of the Junior class.
- Miss Hosteler's Clever Acting.
Without attempt at undesorved
laudation, it can bo said that Floronce
Hostctler's presentation of the rolo of
tho Princess Angela was worthy of
highost praise. Mips Hostetlor dis
played her rare dramatic ability bet
torthan over before in last night's
play. Her's was a difficult part, ono
capable of both emptlonal and humor
out offoct, and she met its oyer
exlgoncy with a most natural ease and '
Louise Wyman's sense of humor In
torfored slightly with her very ca
pable presentation of the rolo of tho
dowager queen of Arcacla. Shq foimd
a bit of difficulty in repressing hpr
laughter at times when laughter was
anything but apropos. But all In all
hor acting was excellent.
Of, the men characters, Otto Slnkle
as Cardinal Casano, the adroit and
scheming prelate, was quite tho best
His work was tho least affected and
ho exhibited at times dramatic ability
of a high sort. Harry Coffee, as Vic
tor, crown prlnco of Kurland, also
merits no little praise, for his actlsg
was of Its usual high character.
Fred McConnoll, on whom tho finan
cial' success of the play as well as
much of the dramatic success, de
pended, gave a most likable rendition
of tho rolo of tho King of Arcacla.
Probably Fnancial Success.
A larger sized crowd than usually
attends such University functions was
present, and Indications last night
were that tho affair was successful
Ono marring Incident waB a bit of
.highly discreditable horseplay on the
part of somo members of the band
during the second and third acts.
Whilo It not only affected the work of
those- appearing on the stage at the
time, it was also noticeable in the
audience, where sharp criticism "of 'It
was volqed'. '
'The 'presence of the band in a mus
ical yayf however, was jHrfc ef "the
performance to be appreciated', for its
several selections were eatejiaUlig;
and well rendered. '
