The stage production Beemed to be
received as a welcome change
from the steady diet-of cinema
fare which has been Salem's' for
the past two years. And the hearty
appUu8e ot the aadlaCft to the
announcement that "Sis Hopkins

the part of the public for more
"flesh and blood theatre produc
tion. The comedy, a type of western
play which has become a favorite
with authors, that of English no-
bmt hecomag stranded on a
western ranch where cowboys
wear their chaps and kerchiefs
and the' women flourish guns, pro
duced situations which tickled the
fancy of the Friday night audi
ence. The work of Jack Cassldy as
the English valet, and Ned Lynch
as "Speed" Magnus quite pleased
the audience. Cassidy did consist

and character. Lynch, easy In

which commands attention, also
was worthy the appreciation he
The other members of the cast
were not so well fitted to the parts
they portrayed. No lines were
dropped which were not cleverly
concealed by ad lib, and the work
of each was earnest. This went far
to prevent too severe offense
from unsaited casting. Given
such a play as "Sis Hopkins'" with
its rollicking humor and its deli-
