Play Chosen Because of the Pre-eminence
of Author and Dramatic
Possibilities Replete with
Tense Situations.
With a little more than a week be
fore tho final presentation of "Pillars
of Society," the seniors are making ac
tlvo preparations to make tlUU Un
epoch In the history of University dra
matics. The caBt for tho paBt two
weeks has been sacrificing most of Its
time In tho Interests of tho play, and
It Is felt by those in touch with the big
ovent that their work on tho after
noon and night of Juno 5 will be
worthy of their best efforts.
Interest In Ibsen.
With tho approach of tho perform
ance, considerable Interest is being
aroused on the campus In Ibsen and
his work. "Pillars of Society" was
selected first because of the renown
and pre-eminence of tho author, and
second, because of tho tremendous
dramatic possibilities of the play it
self. Of nil tho long Hat of Ibsen's
colebrated plays there have been none
that have commanded more wide
spread Ilnterest or received greater ap
proval of the theatre-going public
than the Pillars.
The chief reason for this is found in
the number of tense situations that
run through tho piece, together with
the strength and resolve of the lines.
As one famous writer has put it: "The
dialogue is extremely simple, torse,
natural, forcible, replete with sonority,
color and rhythm. Yet It is a stum
bling block; beneath the dramatist's
sentences are pools of uncertainty."
First Performance In Lincoln.
Further interest is being shown on
account of the fact that this will be
tho first production In Lincoln. Two
performances will be given Thursday
matinee and night, June 6. The ad
vance sale of tickets will begin Mon
day morning at 9 o'clock at the Oliver
box office.

Twelve girls of the playground class
will leave Wednesday noon for Mil
ford on their annual "Blue River"
camping expedition. They will be
gone until Sunday, the three days'
camp being one of the class require
raents. About ten girls with Miss Ina
Gittlngs as chaperone expect to go.
