sists of monologues, stories in mono
logue or monodrama form, a panto
mimic sketch and a one-act drama.
This drama. "A Grain of Dust."
is modeled after the old morality
plays. A tramp, tearing the spirit
and conscience of Judas Iscariot,
stops at the home of a man and
woman who have grown coldbearted
and selfish. This tramp is doomed
to roam the earth, carrying In his
gray robes thethirty pieces of silver,
until by dissuading others from
wrong doing, he has made retribu
tion for the betrayal of his master.
He Is symbolic of conscience and
saves the couple from theft. The man
finally goes In search of the Christ
who, in the guise of a tramp, has
been refused shelter. Harry Bowers
plays the role of Judas Iscariot,
fRartholomew represents the
covetous man, Margaret Garrison, the
cold-hearted wife and lieien uoitra
takes the character of a kindly old
aunt.' - - '- -:
"The Silent System," given by
Ruth Rnonr and Paul Flegel. Is a
humorous sketch in which the irate
wife does all the talking and allows
