THE WEDDING GUEST”
SCORES BIG SUCCESS
Hildegarde Repinen Takes
Lead in Guild Production
TO BE REPEATED TONIGHT
Seniors Act Extra Parts; Com
edy is Good
“The Wedding Guest” which was
produced last night and will be re
peated again tonight in Guild hall came
nearer to the high mark of perfection
than any play produced by the com
pany this year. The fine work of Hi I -
degarde Repinen, Lorna Coolidge, and
Arthur Johnson combined with the
interesting work of several minor char
acters and the exceptional work of the
senior company who played the extras
without any lines was responsible for
the success of the production.
The play itself is novel in as much
ns it is a problem play with an ending
that is entirely satisfactory and the
difficulties are completely cleared up,
although the suspense is held up to the
last scene in the last act.
Miss Repinen Has Title Role
The work of Hildegarde Repinen as
Katy Omnaney deserves particular men
tion not only because it is her first
appearance in a large part on the Guild
hall stage, but because the spirit which
she was able to bring into her role was
unusually remarkable. The part of
Mrs. Omnaney was the most difficult
part in the whole play and the interest
of the audience was held continuously
from the time she appeared on the
stage as an unexpected wedding guest
in the first act, until her difficult
problem was entirely solved.
Lorna Coolidge as Margaret Fair
bairn, the carefully, but innocently
reared daughter of a wealthy old
Scotch gentleman, also portrayed her
Arthur Johnson played the artist,
Paul Digby, who had to decide between
two women, the woman whom he had
once loved and who still loved him,
and hiH wife. Kate Omnaney showed
her extreme unselfish disposition and
made it possiblo for the play to end
happily. This was also the first big
part that Arthur Johnson lias taken
on the Guild hall stage and he proved
to be entirely equal to the difficult
Comedy not Lacking
Although the play denis with a prob
lem which on the morbid it was not
lncking in pleasing comedy. Claire
Keeney who is to be well fitted to any'
comedy part played the father, Mr.
Fairbnirn. His Scotch accent was de
lightful and the scene between him and
the Reverend Mr. Gibson which showed
them playing chess was one of the best
in the entire play. Neither was ablo
to keep his good nature in the game,
but a severe quarrel was averted by the
clever butler, played bv John Fllestad.
The part of Reverend Mr. Gibson
was ably played by Virgil Mulkey.
Margaret Nelson was a grand old
Scotch lady who, although she seemed
severe enough at first, before the play
ended showed herself to be forgiving
enough in her conventional way. Jen
ny Geddes a very old little girl was
played amusingly by Doris Pittenger.
The best man at the wedding which
took place in the first act was played
by Delbert Faust, and the bridesmaid
by Mabel Gilliam- The guests, the
sheriff, and all of the quaint old
fashioned Scotch people were played
by members of the senior company,
while tlu' servants were played by mem
bars of the lower division classes.

RESEARCH ON PACIFIC
ADVOCATED BY YALE AAAN
Dr. H. E. Gregory Here Urging
Granting of Fellowships
“The Pacific, with its undeveloped
lands and resources, will some day re
place the Atlantic as a center of world
activity,” said Dr. H. E. Gregory, pro
fessor of geology at Yale University,
who is on this campus for the purpose
of interesting the university in prob
lems of the Pacific.
Dr. Gregory is a member of the
National Research Council, and is the
head of its committee of Pacific in
vestigation. He is now on a tour of
the colleges and universities of this
country for the purpose of interesting
them in the development of the coun
tries of the Pacific
Aid to Scholars Urged
As a solution to the needs of these
countries in research work, Dr. Gregory
suggests that the American universities
offer fellowships of not less than $1000
to aid men who are working on Paci
fic, problems. Yale now offers four
of these awards, and the success they
arc meeting with has encouraged the
National Research Council to request
other universities, especially those of
the Pacific coast, to grant them.
“The waters of the Pacific, its islands
and countries, present an almost unde
veloped field to the research worker
of todny,” Dr. Gregory said, “Around
New Zealand are salmon banks greater
'than the fish banks of New England,
while the islands of the Pacific will
some day, due to their ideal climate,
be the cattle raising centers of the
Field Most Inviting
“The plnnt life of the tropical Paci
fic, the shoals, teeming with sea ani
mals of nil kinds, offer the most inter
esting field known todny for the stu
dent of zoology, botany, and geology.”
It is the desire of the National Re
search Council that, college students
and professors of science will realize
this importance, and more of them enter
The request of the committee for in
vestigation of Pacific problems is meet
ing with the favor, stated Dr. Greg
ory, of American Colleges, and several
are expected to establish fellowships
for Pacific research work in the near
f u til re.
Dr. Edmondson Met
While in TTnwnii as the head of the
Pacific problems committee Dr. Greg
ory became acquainted with Prof. 0.
II. Edmondson, formerly of the Univer
sity of Oregon, who is now director of
the Marine Zoological Laboratory of
the University of Hawaii. Dr. Edmond

that the committee favored restriction
of the cost but recommended postpone
ment of definite regulations until next
year because they believed that regu
lations would have more weight if made
only a short time before Homecoming. -
Large Sum Is Cleared
The dance committee reported that
$126 was cleared at the last student
body dance. Ella Rawlings, chairman
of the committee on concessions, re- :
ported that the Home Economics club
had been granted the concession to sell
doughnuts at all of the basketball
games during the season.
Criticism of students smoking on the I
sidewalk and curbing around the Com
merce and Law buildings led to the pas
sage of an amendment to the present
rule governing smoking on the campus.
The recommendation of the committee,
as passed by the council, is as follows:
For the purposes of limiting smok
ing on the campus, we recommend;
that the campus boundaries be extended
to include that area on the north side
of 13th Street from the curbing to the
street car track between Kincaid and
University Avenue; that the walk on
the east side of Kincaid Avenue run
ning from 13th Street to 11th be in
cluded; that the curb on the south side
of 11th be included; that the curbing
on the west side of University Avenue,
running from 13th Street to the rail
road be included; that the walk begin
ning at the alley on the west side of the
Administration building and running to
the corner of 13th be included; that
the area included within the east and
north alleys and the west and south
curbs surrounding the men’s gymnasium
be included; that the area immediately
surrounding the Woman’s building be
included; and that the area surrounding
the women’s dormitories be also in

PANAMA CANAL EMERGENCY DAMS
GATUN LAKE, eighty-five feet above sea
level, is the reservoir holding the water
to feed the Gatun Locks (which lead to the
Atlantic) and the Miraflores and Pedro Miguel
locks on the Pacific end of the Canal.
Every ship going through the canal in either
direction uses the water from Gatun Lake to
lift it from the one ocean and lower it into the
other. Should some accident destroy a lock,
the weight of water released might force down
the others and cause tremendous damage and,
by lowering the level of the lake, make the
canal inoperative until rain had refilled the lake.
Therefore these big emergency dams were con
structed. Normally they are not used. In
emergencies they would be swung over the
locks, the gates would drop into position and
effectually dam the opening.
Otis engineers designed, constructed and in
stalled the machinery for operating six of these
gigantic dams. It is a feat typical of the world
wide scope of Otis activities in engineering and
the vertical transportation of men and materials.
