WRITES PERSONAL LETTER COM
MENDING EFFORTS OF
DRAMATIC CLUB.
AT TEMPLE SATURDAY NIGHT
Cast is Working Day and Night and
Promises Great Things for
Audience.
The Dramatic club will put forth its
boat effort Saturday night when they
present to the public the "Servant in
the House. " The play in itself needs
no introduction as it is one of the
best known vehicles on the stage to
day it will speak for itself on Saturday
night. Tho- who attend will die loud
in their praise of the play and the
cast presenting it.
The cast has been rehearsing the
play for the past six weeks under the
able direction of Miss Howell, who
states that they have mastered their
parts to perfection. The cast as se
lected is an all-star aggregation, being
composed of the best talent in the
Dramatic club. The cast includes Mr.
Otto Sinke who will take the part of
the Servant in the House, Mr. Cloyd
Stewart, playing the role of the Vicar,
Mr. Neal Brown in the role of the
Drain Man. Mr. Loni- Home as the
Cockney Servant Boy. The feminine
parts will be assumed by Miss Marion
Preece who will appear in the part of
Auntie, and Miss Clara Wilson in the!
role of Mary. This cast represents
the best that the club can choose and
they will bo at their best in the parts
for which they have been chosen.
The advance sale of seats has been
very large assuring the club that a
crowded theater will greet the players
when they appear in this, the first play
of the season. There are more seats
on hand, thosx' who desire them should
attend to the matter as soon as pos
sible as they are going fast. They are
on sale at the Temple and from mem
bers of the Dramatic club.
Permission to Use Comes.
Pinal permission to play the "Serv
ant in the Hou-e" was received by
Miss Howell yesterday in a personal
letter from its author, Charles Pann
Kennedy. Mr. Kennedy was very much
pleased that the Dramatic club wished
to produce the play and requested that
it be played as to it-; original meaning.
In this respect the cast will follow the
manuscript, as originally produced.
The letter reads in part:
"I shall be glad to let the Dramatic
club give the amateur performance of
"The Servant in the House" under the
circumstances you name, it being un
derstood, however, that the play bo
given in its entirety as written by me,
and with the stage business and sym
bolic significances (Manson as Christ)
indicated and implicit in the text. I
have to make these provisions in these
days because I find that in some cases
when I have granted permission to pro
duce the play, liberties have been
taken with it making my meaning
into something other than that I in
tended." Ruth Cull of Oakland, Neb., Is visit
ing at the Chi Omega house.
TALKS TO RAG STAFF ON
PRACTICAL JOURNALISM
Lawrence of Daily Star Addresses Sec
ond Seminar Meeting on the De
velopment of News Story.
The second meeting of the .Journal
istic Seminar was held last evening in
the editorial rooms of the Dally Ne
braskan. Mr. J. E. Lawrence, city
editor of the Lincoln Daily Star, ad
dressed the staff and those interested
in journalism, upon the development
of the news story, partlculnry in the
relation to college newspaper work.
Mr. Lawrence graduated from the Law
College of the State University in
l'.tll, and has been engaged in some
form of journalism for the last ten
years.
He spoke first of the technical side
of reporting, especially of the develop
ment of a simple news story, em-
phasizing the necessity of using short,' to give or organizations or groups
terse sentences. He found that college who will have Christmas trees that
students who took up reporting expert- may be used, will leave their names in

story, and that it should bo treated
accordingly.
The one thing of greatest value to
the new -paper writer if he is to be-
come at all successful is individuality
of style. Every piece of writing should
reflect the personality of the author
and this should be especially true in
newspaper work.
He was thoroughly optimistic in r

journalist and felt that outside of its

ing and insight in to human nature he
would receive.
This is the last Seminar meeting
before the holidays. Another lecture
is being planned for the second
Wednesday in January, when an edi
tor from one of the Omaha papers will
be secured. The staff decided to hold
a Hag formal sometime during the
latter part of the semsster. This is
an annual event and has proved to
be one of the most enjoyable dances
of the year.

STIEHM ENJOYS HIMSELF
RETURNS FROM BEATRICE WITH
SMILE OF HAPPINESS ON
HIS BROW.
BASKETBALL SCHEDULE COMING
Four Games Are Arranged for With
Others In Process of
Contract.
(By Fred L. Babcock.)
Coach Stiehtn returned Wednesday
morning from Beatrice, where he at
tended the annual high school football
banquet Tuesday evunhiK. Mr. Stiehm
brought back a glowing report of the
way they do things down at the Gage
county capital. The whole town Booms
to be back of the team, he says, and
at least half of the town was present
at the banquet.
Although both Purdy and Ruther
ford, the two Cornhusker stars sent up
from Beatrice, were scheduled to be
present, the former could not leave his
work in Wichita and the latter couldn't
got away from his studies in Lincoln,
so that the Beatrice bugs contented
themselves with seeing the coach In
stead of their old favorites.
Mr. Stiehm found that four of this
year's stars are planning to attend
Nebraska next year. The list includes
Captain Cook, Rlddell. Adams and
Sihultz. Cook Is looked upon as one
of this year's shining lights in Ne
braska high school football. is a
son of Daniel Cook, who, together with
the Kilpatrlek Bros., donated the fa
mous Beatrice stadium. C. Kilpatrlek,
son of one of the "Bros.," was chosen
captain for next year. The Cooks and
the Kilpatrlcks have put Beatrice on
the map, and Stiehm Is "unanimous"
in saying that it's the livest football
town he has seen In many a day.
Now that the past gridiron Beason is
gradually losing its hold upon his
mind, Stiehm Is turning his attention
to the all-Important basketball work.
And, as usual, he is announcing that
the prospects are "gloomier than they
have been in years." Only two of last
year's men, Haskell and Hawkins, are
out for practice, and Hawkins is still
suffering from the broken leg which
put him out of football early this fall.
However, if Mr. Stlehin dared to
spreud anything but bear dope, he
would admit that Hawkins' leg will be
in working order by the opening of
the season, and that some promising
material has been seen on the floor in
the persons of Warren Howard, Ruth
erford, "Seven" Meyers, Ed Hugg,
Louie Meier, Shields and Nelson. Gar
diner and Flnley, both of whom showed
up welj last year, are not out for prac
tice. It is rumored that Guy Mastin
and Gordon Beck will turn out soon.
Guy Reed says that the full schedule
will be ready for announcement In
about two weeks. These dates have
already been arranged:
January 1G and 17 Missouri at Lin
coln. February G and 7 Minnesota at Min
neapolis. February 20 ad 21 Ames at Ames.
February 27 and 28 Ames at Lincoln.
