"The Fortune Hunter," which waB
given by the senior class at the Oliver
Theatre last night, was -an artiBtlc as
well as a financial success. Before a
crowded house a very able cast pro
put it over big. The play showed the
finest kind of coaching from start to
finish and waB greeted with applause
and enthusiasm from the opening act,
where the deep laid plans to ensnare
an heiress are discussed, to the final
stone where all ends happily, even if
not according to the system.
The stage settings were unusually
good, especially that difficult third act
with the rehabilitated drug store.
Clarence Clark has been doing some
very commendable work as a stage
manager of University plays for sev
eral years and deserves great credit
"Rockio" Ammerman, as Nat Dun
can, the "fortune hunter," was especi
ally good. The part is no easy one to
Interpret and "Rockie" did some very
finished and artistic work, work, in
fact, that almost puts him out of the
amateur class. His facial work was
probably bis strongest asset.

This catchy little song will be aug

around the rehearsals have so many
varying opinions on the question of
which song is the hit of the thirteen
jpjigjvumherjL in the show that it's
hard to predict which one will be the
lucky number. Ono thing is certain,
all of the music Is good. Whenever
