'A USELES8 A88E88MENT.
A pitiable example of the need of
greater 61IlMal control uf mudunt uc
tivltles Involving tho expenditure of
money occurred yesterday morning In
the meeting of tho Sonlor class. A
motion to assess each member of the
class $2.00 for (he benefit of tho Senior
play, was ostensibly tho proposition
boforo tho house. In fact, the pur
pope of the promoters of the assoHs
ment'idea was not to guarantee the
play, for tho chairman of the Senior
play committee has repeatedly assert
od that tho play would need no such
assessment but to guarantee the re
payment to tho Senior chairman of the
cotillion the amount he expended for
allowing the dance to go In the holo
This difference between tho real and
ostensible purport of the motion, had
It been known to tin class at the
time the unfortunate and needless as
cessment was passed, might havo In
fluenced the i lass not to have voted
thus against their own best lntorcsts.
The puerility of tho performance
was evident from the character of
the class's most uninformed delibera
tions. Tho chairman of the play com
mittee announced as his belief that
the play .could make exponsos and
pay tho debt without an assessment.
Asked by tho pro-assessment forces
whether he would guarantee tho pay
ment cf the play's expenses and the
class debt, the chairman answerod In
the negative. From this failure to
support belief by guarantee, tho con
clusion was readily reached and pro
pounded by tho assessment cohorts
that tho only safe way to proceed was
to levy tho tax. Having no spokes
man but himself and having admitted
the probability of the play's financial
failure, tho chairman ot the play was
unable to prevent tho class from in
terfering with his business, and the
motion to assess, as result of com
bined politics and ignorance, carried.
When the chairman of a defunct
dance committee can get a class to
force a chairman of a play, that
Art for art's sake, the first exhi
bition of Its kind in years, an abso
lutely free show, before a packed thea
tre, Bernard Shaw's "Candida," as
presented by the J)rnmatic Club in tho
Temple theatre last night, was a
grand success. The plot was osten
sibly tho "eternal triangle;" a seem
ing pursuit of a man's wife, a minis
ter's wife, by an eighteen-year-old
poet. But as tho drama turned out
the poet came not to hinder but to
help. The touch of romance seemed
only to have been added for tho pur
poso of bringing out how elastic is
the real tie that binds husband and
The rendition by the cast apparent
ly impressed the audience as superb.
More spellbound than enthusiastic, the
audionco applauded vigorously only
the entry of boisterous shirt-tall par
ade, and with taking up the play
seemed to sing again Into tho deep,
quiet, almost sombre reality that was
characteristically enacted before their
very eyes. The bare actions, the
stage business as it is called, wa

performance scribes hnve so far at

rendition was one unconventional con
