In the last number of "Awgwan"
there is a criticism of tho choico of the
senior class play. Tho nub of it is
that University classes should not pay
a royalty for a class production. But
all argument Is not on one side. The
senior committee did not act without
It is but useless to contend that as
popular a play can bo secured without
paying a royalty as can be secured by
paying a royalty. This is self-evident.
It is merely a question, then, as to
whether or not tho relative popularity
of royalty and non-royalty plays
makes a sulllclent difference to justify
the payment of twenty-flvo to ono nun-
-dred dollars- in -royaltyT We - belleve -
that it does.
Perhaps, as Mr. Northrup states,
thoBe who go to class plays do so be
cause It is a Unlvorslty function or
because of Interest In members of tho
caBt. To theso might bo added the
bug-bear of class debts and tho forced
assessment for tho senior play. But
experience with Unlvorslty affairs has
leHlfs To believe thai there aro many
who would wavo all theso rathor than
be bored by an unpopular production.
There is a direct relation between the

tho audience. One's sense of duty Is
very likely to be subservient to one's
desire to spend an enjoyablo evening.
'Mr. Northrup argues, in effect', that
a relatively poor play an unpopular
play would draw as good a house as
would a, comparatively popular play;
that the Unlvorslty public is absolute-"
ly indifferent as to the quality of tho
dramatic productions It wltnoBses. It
goes for something else not tho play.
-IflLl8DQSslbln thnt such la the case.
itr is high timo wo had no moro of it.
If wo go to class plays because wo
feel duty-bound, tho sooner thoy be
dono away with tho better. If wo do
not want to go for tho play's sake;
if wo aro forced to support them
whether or not wo wish to; if thoy
do not amuse and entertain us; if
they even do not pay expenses, then
is it time, to quit. For this we say,

give u popular production to which
peoplo will want to go.
Tho committee in charge and tho
class itself bolioved it was acting
wifloly in tho choico of the play.
Financial consideration was para
mount. Tho choice lay between an
unpopular, it o-roynl tytypc rnndnn up-to-tho-mlnuto,
royalty typo. From a
dollars-and-cents standpoint "Tho
Fortune Hunter" was considered the
best possible play.
Tho wholo controversy arisos from
a personal difference of opinion.
Awgwan takes one stand, the senior
class another. Perhaps Mr. Northrup
is right and perhaps he is wrong.
Anyway, wo want to see the senior
play a success. So wo have cased our
hammor; wo are ready to boost. The
timo for helpful suggestion and crit
icism Is gone; tho timo for "knock
