ICCH WILL READ -
Shakespearean Selection, to Be
Produced in Spring, Inaugu- ;
rates Monthly Readings.
Professor F. H. Koch will pre
sent a reading of "Hamlet" at
8:30 o'clock tonight in the lay
makers' theatre, following a tra
dition initiating thevPlayraa
kers series of monthly readings
with a Shakespearean selection;
i Prof essor Koch has chosen the
play because it will probably be
presented . in the spring as the
Forest theatre production, and
because a production of "Ham
let" during his senior year in
high school was the first play
Koch ever attended.
: Koch has for years produced
Shakespeare in the University's
Forest theatre, but has acted in
only, two of these performances.
His production last year of "A
Midsummer Night's Dream" is
recalled as a typical and a very
successful Playmaker presenta
tion. The readings, one of which
will be given each month of the
school year, are extremely prom
ising this : year, with Paul
Green's scheduled for Novem
ber. Koch extends a cordial in
vitation to everyone to attend,
especially, those interested, in
trying out for the spring pro
duction of "Hamlet."

Hobbs brothers; A. W. Hobbs

demonstration of cheering and
applauding by the small but en

That day this pitcher toiled
for 15 innings, putting his heart
into every pitch. ' At the end of
the fifteenth inning the umpire
called the game because of dark
