tive. Its tri purpose being concealed. The
masque Is more than a literary effort, It

masque, drama has become a factor In
Dr. Sullivan stated that Sanctuary''
was a powerful factor for legislation with
regard to bird protection, particularly In
the tariff, and stated that the St. Ixiuls
masque would exploit the possibilities of
the middle west. The speaker offeied a
description by an eye-witness, of one of
the gorgeous spectacles presented In
Shakespeare's day, os refutation of the
statement that elaborate scenery was un
known in the KlUabethan theater.
