Famous Old'Beggar’s Opera’
Will Be Staged Here in May
By S. STEPHENSON SMITH 1
The “Beggar's Opera’’ will be
presented in the middle of May, by
an all-campus cast. This famous
comic opera by John Gay, first
performed in 1728, has had a re
markable theatrical history. It
had a long London run when it was
first given. It was played more
frequently in the Colonies than any
other play, and was often seen by
Washington and Jefferson. But it
really came into its own, as a
hardy perennial, just after the
world war, when it was revived
by Nigel Playfair in the Lyric the
atre at Hammersmith with set
tings by Claude Lovat Fraser. It
ran seven years, longer than
“Abie's Irish Rose”; and it is still
running in the provinces. There
were at one time three American
companies on the road. But no
matter how often it is given, it
always plays to crowded houses.
Old habitues in London went every
week; and if you have seen it
once, you will go again whenever
you have the chance.
What is the peculiar quality
which gives the “Beggar's Opera”
this drawing power? It is the
combination of broad robust com
edy with lyric grace in the songs.
Who could forget the strongly
marked character parts of
Peachum, the old fence; Mrs. Pea
chum, his startling wife; Mac
Heath, the gentleman highway
man, whose motto is “I must have
women”; the melting, gracious
Polly Peachum; the melodramatic,
dangerous Lucy Lockit, daughter
of the Newgate jailer, Mr. Lockit
of the heavy tread; Filch, the
cockney pickpocket, with his sly
ways; the eight doxies, huzzies,
jades, trulls — choose your own
term; and the eight sinister high
waymen of MacHeath’s gang, who

The players of the prologue are

very animated numbers. The prin

SENATE DEBATES TARIFF
MEASURES OF BILL
(Continued from Page One)
out of the measure. They con-'
tended success was in sight.
As approved by the house the
bill calls for new import duties on
oil and coal. Others are pending.
Senator Gore (D., Okla.), was the
author of the motion rejected by
Mills called for the elimination
of “punitive business taxes” put
into the measure on the house
floor. He pointed to Levies on gas
oline, electricity and gas and
checks and drafts as illustrations
of the levies he favored to make
up the difference in revenue after
eliminating the “punitive” taxes.
He refused flatly the requests of
Democratic members to take a po
sition for or against the tariff im
posts in the revenue bill.
The treasury head offered the
committee full support on the rev
enue bill and a spirit of bi-partisan
cooperation was evident.
In contrast, however, the war
between President Hoover and con
gressional Democrats over ways
of making a $200,000,000 cut in
expenses gained fury as Democrats
assailed the president from the
floor and demanded a bill of par
ticulars from him.

States Show Deficits
RIO DE JANEIRO, April 6.—
(AP)—A government commission,
undertaking a study of the finan

today found deficits in 18 of the
country's 20 states and loans
which it regarded as "scandalous.”
Newspapers published figures in
dicating that the foreign debts in
15 states totaled $309,000,000. The
annual interest on these debts to
tals more than $30,000,000.

Farrell at McDonald
Although we miss Janet Gaynor
opposite Charles Farrell, Marian
Nixon as leading lady in “After
Tomorrow,” closing its engage
ment at the McDonald tonight,
takes the place very nicely.
Farrell, needless to say, per
forms in such a manner that you
can't help liking him. Always
faithful to the girl, he never fal
ters under the constant encourage
ment of an easy-to:get blond.
We are inclined to give acting
honors to William Collier Sr., and
Minna Gombel, who play the par
ents of the girl, Collier as the un
derstanding, kindly, but unsuccess
ful father, and Miss Gombel as a
mother bitter against her daugh
ter and husband because of the
drab surroundings in which she
Obstacles faced by the two young
lovers trying to save up enough
money to have a good wedding and
get a start on the bumpy road of
matrimony are the motivation of
thg tale. Mamma leaves home,
papa gets sick, and the boy does
n’t get the doubled pay-check. All
this takes money out of the “wed
ding fund,” and there you are. It
goes on for four years.
Friday will see the opening of
“Polly of the Circus” with Marion
Davies and Clark Gable, and a
noted troupe of aerial artists
known as the “Flying Codonas.”
“Breath-taking feats” are pro
duced by these two, according to
reports from Seattle.

lives of Eileen and young Tad.
