a feminine touch in their living
quarters was very evident.

were played by Harold Thomas j

Robert Gulley and Marvin Ward.j
The home of the boys was pic-
tured as being in a state of cou-j
stunt confusion. The rattling ofj
pots and pans outbursts of laugh-
ter and shouts of anger from the
boys contributed to the uproar. j
The main events of the program
were the musical numbers render

celebration or the birthday of Har-

All members of the cast took an
important part in the use of the

This program was well render-

of the life of these boys.

MAX MONTOR AMBASSADOR OF GOOD
WILL PLEASES AUDIENCES IN A.C.C.
Max Montcr came as a good
will representative to A. C. C.
from the German speaking people.
He is really an ambassador of
good will he is pleasant charm-1
nig anu wining to read anything
one asks him to read. It is a
rare day when a really great artist
smiles and is not bored by the
admiring glances and advances of
untrained college students. Al-
though Mr. 'Mooter is becoming
gray at the temples and is showing
a few wrinkles he still reads as
a man of many less years. Yes
and with the power and ability of
his first great triumphs. Every
part of his face and body cooper-
ates with his mind and voice in
rendering the truly great master-
piece in a truly great way. He
seems to capture and convey the
inexpressible feeling of ) c inner
being of the character whose role
he aumcs. One can hardlv be
lieve that he has not come into
personal contact with each and
every one of his characters. !
Max Mooter was born in Vien-1
na the center of European culture j
and beauty. He was graduated
from the Imperial Conservatory i
of Dramatic Art one of the high-
est ranking conservatories in the
world. He was then receiving
some public acclaim a a drama-
tic reader and actor; but his tie- j
but as MephitO)heles in "Faust" j
at Zurich Switcrland. astounded
the dramatic world and immedia-!
tely established him as a great j
dramatic reader and actor. Mr
Montor has played many roles
abroad and in the United States

Mr. Montor read before an at-
tentive audience Friday evening
and also to individual classes.
Those who heard him were im-
picsscd by his simplicity sincer-
ity and unusual poise. He seems
to be so vividly interested in every

cessful ones and he seems to feel

He certainly convinced his
listeners of the beauty of the Ger-

that most of us didn't understand
that language we were able to un-
derstand it through his magnifi-

it. We of Ihe United Slates
