iJrandets. It an industrious drama'

the theater of all who appreciate
and enjoy the finesse as well as the
broader aspects ot trie actors art.
Such occasions are too few to be
willfully neglected, if we are to give
to the theater such support as will
justify its existence.
Mr. Moeller has thrown around
Moliere's last moments a glamor of
romance that greatly relieves the
drab accounts we find in history of
his experience at the court, his quar
rels with the priests, and his in
ability to survive the displeasure of
the king. Mr. Miller has visualized
the author's pictures with such smy-
pathetic understanding as might
suggest a deeper interest in the story
of the actor-manager-author than
will be ascribed to the natural de
sire to do a thing well. It is done
with fine appreciation ot every
light and shadow of the" story, re
gard for the nuances as well as for
the big moments, preserving the un
dertone without neglect of the over
tones, until it approaches perfection
in point of, stage craft. To invest
such scanty and not altogether
promising material with so much of
genuine interest is a tribute indeed
to the ability of Henry Miller as
His performance or the name

and carefully worked out in de

when he is before us. He is not

and disregards no touch, however
light, that will add to the picture,
but his judgement preserves him
safe against overstepping at any
In this resides the charm of his
acting, its poise, its finish, its evi
dence of care, and over it all that
secret of real art that conceals arti
fice, the verisiniiltude that destroys
the effect 'of known assumption.
Henry Miller is a master of his
craft, not yet at his zenith, but
mounting higher and shining with
a clearer light as he climbs.
Blanche Bates has a role that
calls for all her power of feeling
and expressing a passion, deep,
sweeping and consuming as it goes.
No scene more poignant than her
appeal as Montespan to Moliere has
ever been watched in Omaha, no
quiet despair more overwhelming
than hers when she realized her
failure, no hatred more venomous
than that she vents in her determi
nation to blast the man who spurned
her passion. And the lighter mo
ments that lead up to this, when
she spun the web in which she
sought to hold the man she lusted
for, her trepidation, her anoroach.
all are proofs that she. too. de

won among American actresses.

endorsement of the Plumb plan for
the nationalization of railroads, ob
jection being made to the method

the transportation lines.
Another resolution adopted after
a fight urged the necessary changes
in federal and state constitutions to
permit the election of all candidates
to congress and general assemblies
by industrial trade groups instead of
by territorial districts. It was said
to be the Russian soviet plan.
