N£XT GUILD PRODUCTION
TO BE STAGED MARCH 10
Miss Banfield and Mr. Reddie
to Play Leading Roles
SETTINGS TcTbE ARTISTIC
Part of Nerissa to be Taken
by Hildegarde Repinen
With Fergus Reddie and Charlotte
Banfield playing the leading roles and
with colorful Shakespearean costumes,
“The Merchant of Venice” which will be
produced March 15, 16 and 17 in Guild
Hall, will in all probability be one of
the most popular plays produced on the
campus this year. It has been the prac
tice in the 'department to produce at
least one Shakespearean play a year.
“The Two Gentlemen of Verona,” which
was produced last year, was well liked
by the students in spite of the fact that
it is one of the least played of all Shakes
The entire cast have taken roles on
the Guild stage in other productions this
year and several of them have played
leading parts. Claire Keeney and John
Ellestad, both of whom have been seen
in comedy roles on the campus before,
will again bring out the humor of the
play in the parts of Launcelot and old
Gobbo. Hildegarde Repinen, whose work
in “The Wedding Guest,” produced only
a short time ago on the campus, has been
said to be some of the best work ever
done on the Guild Hall stage, will play
the part of Nerissa.
The costumes in a Shakespearean play
are always an added attraction and the
bright colored costumes to be worn in
this play will add mueh to the produc
tion. The settings, although they will
be simple, will be extremely artistic.
The play will be seen three nights, af
has been the custom during the last fen
productions. The added interest whicl
has been shown by the faculty and stu
dents has made this possible.

Literary Magazine at Princeton, about
24 years ago, he accepted for publica
tion the first story Wilson had ever
submitted to an editor.
Later, as editor of the old Pacific
Monthly, Mr. Thacher continued in
close touch with Wilson, whose promise
as a writer was at one time regarded
as greater than that of any other Ore
Wilson was at one time editor of a
newspaper at Newport, Oregon, and is
also remembered as a former reporter
on three of the Portland papers. Ot
late years he has been doing magazine
writing and fiction in California.
