see the Drama League players
of the Little theater f Portland pre
sent "The Stronger," by August
Strindberg, "Riders to the Sea." and
"The Maker of Dreams" by Oliphant
Downs, three one-act plays, the types
of which are most uncommon and
are entirely new to Salem. They be
long to no particular period of the
'drama but are very old. They are
now being revived In many of the
smaller and exclusive theaters over
the country. The Drama League
(Tlayera include a group of talented
society folk of Portland who are tak
ing a deep interest in the revival of
these dramas and also in the new wo
man's building at the University of

was a benefit. About 200 was
.. cleared. . . I
i The simplicity in) the retting of
these plays ts noteworthy as are the
artistic features. Tfiey are of three
distinctive classes and each was very
finished in presentation. Salem
folk were delighted with them. Par
ticularly "Riders to the Sea" which
is clashed by critics as the most won
derful of the tragedies. -
Mrs. Dent Mowrey, under whoe
direction the plays were given, took
' a prominent part in each play and
her ease and dramatic ability were
of keen pleasure to the audience. She

drama and her work was finished. In
each she was superb and as Pirrot in

in "The Stronger." was remarkable
in her portrayal of emotion in per
fect silence. She did not speak once
in the whole act. In "The Maker of
Dreams' in which she took a prom
inent part, she- again showed her
ability as a versatile artist. Her
costume, was very striking. .
