WASHINGTON, May 10.—Senate
Teapot Home investigators today
praised John I). Rockefeller, Jr., for
his attempt to oust Robert W. Ste

company of Indiana, as United
States Attorney Leo Rover prepared
to ask a grand jury here today for
a perjury indictment against the oil
Rover, noting on senate orders re

which caused Rockefeller to act in
the house cleaning attempt, said
l.e would go before the grand jury
today to lay before it the record of
Stewart's conflicting testimony be
fore the Teapot Home inquiry. Sena
tors Thomas J. Walsh, of Montana,
and Gerald I’. Nye, of North Hako
ta, the directors of the investigation,
applauded Rockefeller’s action, ex
pressing their belief that in it lay a
fulfillment of hope for a general
drive to clean up the business.
Walsh, the prosecuting attorney of
the original Teapot Home inquiry
of 1923-24, as well as the recent ony ]

] any deal, which finally disclosed
Stewart's one-fourth participation [
in mysterious profits of $3,000,000,
noted that Rockefeller’s act followed
immediately upon a U. S. chamber,
of commerce advocacy of a house
cleaning. Speculation centered to
day on possibility of success of the
(lister movement. Senate observers
, pointed out that Rockefeller told the
Teapot Home committee two months
ago that the holdings of his family
and the various Rockefeller founda
tions amounted to. less than 20 per
cent of the total of the stock of thej
Standard Oil company captained by
St ewa it.

world is waking up to the enormity!

sense if such conduct may pass mi

Walsh said.
Senator Nye congratulated Rocke

that “there is probably some room
for complaint that such action was
not token sooner.”

Midsummer Night’s Dream
Elaborate Affair
Pup tn tho intense work which the
presentation of “Midsummer Night’s
Dream,” the 1928 eommeneement
play, is going to take, Miss Wilbur
has found it. necessary to turn her
freshman class o^r to Harriet Haw
kins, student of drama, for the rest
of the year.
The class is busy now, working on
“Alice in Wonderland,” a play which
they hope to present at Guild theatre
srine time before school is out. Miss
Hawkins has had several leads, most
ly character roles, in the plays given
this year.
“I have every confidence in Har
riet’s ability to jiandlo my class, for
besides being capable in the drama
work, she is most dependable,” Miss
Wilbur said when she announced the
The production of the Shakespear
ean play is going to involve more
work than has ever been demanded
by any previous production. The
entire east will include approximate
ly 100 students. Rehearsals will be
difficult to manage since there will
be three distinct groups, the actors,
the dancers hnd fairies, and the mu
Mendelssohn’s “Overture” will be
used by the members of the Univer
sity orchestra for the musical atmos
phere. A stage, which will accom
modate sixty musicians, will have to
be erected over the race.
Miss Wilbur has been working out
a tentative sketch arranging for the
two stages gnd the bleachers. After
conferring with Madame McGrew,
the drama director will name those
who will have song leads.
Leads for the play, which will be
given .Tunc 8, have beer, appointed
and are now holding early rehearsals.
The list of dancers and fairies will
be completed soon, and work on the
various groups will get under way.
The play, as it is being planned, will
be one of the most colorful rpd ef
fective performances ever given at
the University.
