On the evening of May 10 a dramatic performance will be given at the Grand opera house by the University Comedy club for the benefit of the Woman's gymnasium and the Athletic association. Two plays are to be presented, one of which is an amateur piece of old standing but, up to this time, has never been presented here. It is Morton's farce, "Lend Me Five Shillings," in which Mr. Nat Goodwin is making a great hit this season. The parts in the play have been put in the hands of the best known amateurs in the University, and their work at the rehearsals is clever enough to warrant our saying that a splendid performance will be given on the ioth. The people who go to niake up the cast of "Lend Me Fve Shillings" are all experienced in dramatic work and their action is peculiarly free from that stiffness which usually accompanys amateur efforts. They are: Norman H. Hackett, Karl E. Harriman, F. W. B. Coleman, Ben Cocker, Bob Bourland, Miss Bessie Dunster and Miss Veva Duffy. The second play is "Woodcock's Little Game," one of the brightest and funniest plays Morton ever wrote. The parts in the piece will be taken by the following: Arthur M. Smith, James Handy, Harry Nightingale, Bob Bourland, Miss Fraine, Miss Bessie Dunster, Miss Dinx Dunster and Miss Belle Norton. Inasmuch as the entire proceeds of the entertainment are to be ed oveĆ­ to the Woman's gym fund and the Athletic association, the prices have been placed so low that there is no excuse for anyones' not attending. The admission has been placed at 35, 50 and 75 cents. The boards will be open next Tuesday morning at Sheehan's vvhere seats can be reserved np to five o'clock on the day of the performance, May 10. Let everyone tura out and help build the Woman's gym.
