“ Blundering Billy,” a farcical
comedy given by the Junior Class
on Friday evening, was a decid­
ed success, and all who took
part in it are to be congratulated.
The setting was extremely e f­
fective, giving the stage the ap­
pearance o f .a luxurious apart­
Raymond Lovelace as
the awkward secretary was true
to life and kept the audience in a
continual uproar, from the time
he landed fresh from the cow ­
catcher until the winning of the
fair Dorothy. Ezra Tuttle play­
ed by Perry Murphy, the rich
mine owner who possessed more
wealth than an education, was a
striking example o f the western­
er • in his slouch hat, gaudy scarf
and.six shooter. In marked con­
trast to the rough exterior of the
appeared H e n r y
Cossman as the young, dashing
lieutenant in dress uniform of
the U. S. regulars.
He also
gave us a touch o f the Romantic
Age as a prince in beplumed hat
and pink tights.
Both parts
were well sustained.
Douglass Drill did some good
work in the ro'e o f Sing Toy, a
Chinese servant. An old salt as
taken by Chester Morgan de­
serves worthy mention.
Audrey Miller as Clarissa Burn­
ham was charming in a creation
o f pink and carried her part with
dignity and grace.
Lydia Mat-
son was altogether pleasing and
attractive as the rich mine own­
er’s daughter and held her audi­
ence well. Nor must we forget
our coquettish little Japanese
girl as played by Naomi Paddi-
son, which gave an oriental touch
to the whole.
Much credit is due the coa’ h,
Miss Gladys McKnight, who has
shown her ability in play pro­
duction and made “ Blundering
Billy” such a success.
