Tie Order 6f the Grail,; campus
honorary organization, initiated its
annual quota of men last Thursday
night. The Order usually selects 13
new men each year to become mem
bers, but only eleven were taken in
this year, one senior, three juniors,
and five sophomores. A banquet and
dance will be given tonight honoring
the new members.
At the banquet tonight at seven
o'clock at the Carolina Inn for the
new members, short tjalks will be
made by Prof. Horace Williams and
Dr. W. S. Bernard. Norman Block is
president of the order.
Probably the greatest known ser
vice the order renders the campus is-
the dances it sponsors. Three dances
each quarter or nine during the school
year are given annually. The .great
cuTDOse of, the organization is to
sponsor a relationship between each
ami eve.ry sLuuem, ui giuui ui a en
dents on the campus. The neophytes
'will be honored at the dance' at By-
".num Gymnasium tonight. 1 he dances
given have been ample evidence of
the sort and spirit of the work being
dose on the campus.
The Order of .the Grail does not
limit its activities to the social side
of the campus life.- It awards acup
each year to the member of the fresh
mail class who is outstanding in schol
astic and athletic attainments. It pro
motes athletics by awarding certain
cups and prizes to the winning intra
mural athletic teams each year.

ADDS TO EFFECT
OF THE TEMPEST'
Shakespeare Comedy Will Be
Presented in Forest Theatre
The performance of "The Tempest,"
the Playmaker production of the
Shakespearian comedy which was sche
duled for presentation at the Forest
Theatre last night and tonight has
been postponed to Monday and Tues
day because of inclement weather. Di
rector Selden announced last night
that the play would be staged at the
Forest Theatre at 8:30 Monday and
Tuesday, weather permitting.
The Tempest is Shakespeare's last
play, and he has woven into it all of
the variety of imagination and beauty'
which he mastered. This performance
costs less than any performance giv
en this year by the widely known
The setting of the play is placed
in the cave of Prospero. Samuel Sel
den has designed an elaborate and
colorful lighting system which makes
the moving tapestry a constantly
changing pageant of music, dancing,
and magical appearances of strange
shapes, dogs, and spirits. Prospero,
the master magician, conjures up a
masque in which three Godesses, Juno,
Iris, and Ceres appear.
The music, especially written for
the play by Arthur Sullivan, creates
the weird, enchanted atmosphere of
th island of Prospero. '
The variety of the play is demon
strated from the delicate enchanting
spirit of Ariel poised high in the air
above the cave of Prospero, to the
gutteral jargon of the island monster,
Caliban. The play is interesting in
that it takes place on three levels.
This gives a great variety in the ac
tion of the stage picture.
The costumes are colorful and
ceedingly effective, adding much to
the beauty' of the moving scene.
- The acting is excellent, the cast rep
resenting some of the best talent that
the Playmakers have. Dr. Urban T.
Holmes of the French department
plays the part of Shakespeare's miss
ing link, the monster Caliban.
The cast includes: Alonso, Edwin
S. Day; Sebastian, Arthur Sickles;
Prospero, Shepherd Strudwick; An

serted Dr. Archibald Henderson, who
