"TAMING OF THE
Big Crowd Sees the First Pro
duction of the Year Given
in Forest Theatre
DIRECTION IS VERY GOOD
By Winsiow Mclver
Before a large and interested aud
ience, including many out-of-town
people, "The Taming of the Shrew,"
the opening performance of the Car
olina Playmakers, was presented with
booming success in the Forest Thea
tre Monday afternoon at four
o'clock. "The Taming of the Shrew,"
or "Katherine and Petruchio," is the
fifth play that has been produced in
the sylvan playhouse by the Caro
lina Playmakers, and bears a special
significance in that it commemorates
the tercentenary year of the publica
tion of "The First Folio of the Works
of William Shakespeare."
As a whole, the Playmaker'a first
production of the season was all that
-could be asked. It showed very able
direction, and went off with snap and
precision. At times there was a
lapse, which is characteristic of most
plays, and the players were often in
audible, though that may have been
due to the acoustics of the Forest
Theatre and not to their enuncia
tion. The cast was well chosen, and
all of them showed some degree of
ability on the stage.

OF PHI SOCIETY
W. D. White Attacks the Ways
and Means Committee for
Able defenses by J. O. Bailey and
Z. T. Fortesque in answer to an at
tack launched by W. D. White against
the Ways and Means Committee of
the Phi Assembly, Saturday night
brought oi't the most eloquent pleas
of the whole meeting.
Mr. White criticized the committee
for what he alleged to be negligence
of duty in not presenting more bills
and resolutions for the Assembly to
discuss. Mr. Bailey, the only mem
ber of the committee present, very
ably defended the actions of the com
mittee and called attention to the fact
that two bills framed by it will be
up for discussion next Saturday
night. He also gave statistics show
ing that the Committee has drawn up
more resolutions and bills than it is
possible for the Assembly to discuss.
Mr. Fortesque, although not a mem
ber of the Committee, likewise rose
to its defense.
A resolution introduced by the
Ways and Means Committee, endors
ing Governor Walton's action in the
recent Ku Klux Klan trouble in Ok
lahoma, was passed by a large ma
jority. The resolution called forth a
large amount, of discussion, the Ku
Klux and Governor Walton both com
ing in for some criticism before t.
vote was taken.
Resolutions seeking the Assembly
to go on record as approving the ac
tions of the Fetzers in taking the
second football team to Yale and to
record the Assembly as favoring a
severance of all. athletic relations
with Trinity college, were tabled in
definitely without any discussion.
In the absence of Speaker George
Hampton, Speaker-pro-tem F. P.

Frankly, there is a good deal of
readable material in the October Car
olina Magazine, but we cannot say
there are more than two works of any
literary excellence. We are think
ing of Hsiung's play, The Thrice
Promised Bride, and of two little
quatrains masquing under the unin
spired name of "Curtain," signed by
Perhaps the chief charm of
Hsiung's lies in its exquisite delicacy
of word-music; and hardly less in the
native humor of the Chinese writer's
stage-craft. One of the local "liter
ati" recently said that his chief en
joyment in reading Shaw came from
the chuckles in his stage directions.
Hsiung glimpsed the value of such
off-stage comment by the author, and
used it to a delightful advantage!
"Curtain" is distinctly Art, and
smacks of Greenwich Town. It must
be read to be appreciated. If for no
other cause than this the play and
the poem the October issue of the
Magazine is worth-while.
There is a little bit of gospel in the
editorial page, but nothing very start

BIG CHIEF CASEY LEADS HIS
HOPEFUL TRIBE TO RALEIGH
FOR IMPORTANT SKIRMISH
High Point Pageant Will Have
Three Governors and Carolina
Playmakers as Attractions
High Point's "Pageant of Prog
ress," occurring October 25, and cel
ebrating the good roads work in
North Carolina, has the distinction
of being one of the most elaborate
occasions of its kind that has ever
been staged in this State. High
Point has been extravagant in an at
tempt to make "The Pageant" a suc
cess, as is clearly shown in her care
ful selection of attractions.
Chief among the many attractions
will be the governors of three states,
a cabinet member and the Carolina
Playmakers. Governor Morrison of
North Carolina, Governor McLeon of
South Carolina, and Governor Trin
kle of Virginia will be the three state
officials, while Mr. Work, Secretary
of the Interior, will be the other no
table. In addition, there will be nu
merous visitors of prominence.
The University plays an import
ant part in the "Pageant," being well
represented by the Carolina Playmak
ers, of State-wide fame. On the eve
ning of October 25, the Playmakers
present two original folk plays in
the new municipal theatre, which
ranks with the best in the State.
The two plays to be given are ones
that have attracted considerable at
tention within the past two years,
and are readily regarded as two of
the best ever produced. They are to
be supported with the original casts
that appeared here.
The two plays to be presented are:
"Wilbur's Cousin," a comedy of col
lege life, by Ernest Thompson, and
"When Witches Ride," a play of folk
superstition, by Elizabeth Lay.
"Wilbur's Cousin," by Ernest
Thompson, attracted immediate at
tention and was an instant hit where
pver it was. played. The cast is as

"When Witches Ride," by Eliza
