PUBLIC SPEAKING DEPART-
MENT TO PRESENT NEW PLAY.
FRIDAY, DECEMBER THIRD
"Captain 'Applejack," an Arabian
Night's adventure in three acts by
Walter Hackett, will be presented by
the . Public Speaking and Expression
department under the direction of
Miss Lillard, at the College'auditorium
on Friday, December 3rd at 7:45 p. m.
"There's naught like good grog to
warm the innards" on a freezing night,
and there is nothing like a good pirate
play—and a melodrama to boot—to
repay—"lily livered duffers" who will
venture forth on such a night as Fri-
day, December 3rd, and the reward
will be commensurate with the frigid
journeys. In Walter Hackett'a "Cap-
tain Applejack/' the Public Speaking
department of. John Tarleton College
' will achieve its triumph of the season.
The audience will find the doughty-
buccaneers with his facile oaths, his
gleaming dirk, his "moods with d;-|ili-
ance" with a "Portugese wench" and
his volleys of gasconade to be the
most enjoyable character to strut on
the Tarleton stage this season.
It will be refreshing and encourag-
ing to find color and costume on a
strge hitherto devoted to the more
familiar phases of life. And it will
be decidedly inspiring to witness such
a performance as the new leading
man, Paul Allen, a junior in the col-
lege, will be able to give in the title
role. In it there will be a niee vari-
ation of mood and amateur finish de-
cidedly welcome. Personally he is a
tall, well-formed, well-featured man,
mature but, not at all old---not eyen
• Stimulated by ■ such a competent
vis-a-vis, Miss.Mae Cantrell, a senior
in the college, will manage to create
a sensation herself. As Anna Valeska,
the Russian dancer, she is no gentle
blonde, but a seductive brunette,
vamping right and left with a decided-
ly French accent. One would not
think that she is cast by nature for
such a role, but' her performances will
demonstrate anew the triumph of
mind over matter.
The infallible Irby Perry will be
present in a gem of a character role,
that of a mysterious seer who turns
out to be a clever crook.
Miss Graves will be charming in her

The royalty fee for an amateur pro;
duct ion of "Captain Applejack" is
fifty dollars." It is by special permis-
sion of the author's publisher, Samuel
French of New York", that Miss Lillard
part as the' wife of Mr. Perry, The
will be able to give to the people of
Stephenville this Arabian Night's ad-
venture. This4s>the-.best and the most
expensive three-act play that Miss Lil-
lard. has ever attempted in Tarleton.
Last Christmas, a stock company
under the direction of James H. Doyle
of New York, produced "Captain Ap-
plejack", at the Circle Theatre in Dal-
las. Just recently, the Little Theatre
of Fort Worth presented it to a large
and enthusiastic audience. On De-
cember 30, 1921, Sam H. Harris pre-
sented Wallace Eddinger and Mary
Nash in "Captain Applejack," staged
by the author and Sam Forest at the
Cort .Treatre, New York. The play
was copyrighted in 1923 by the author
and in 1925 by Samuel French.
By special consideration, Miss Lil-
lard has reduced the usual prices for
the production off "Captain Applejack"
from two dollars to fifty cents, for the
entire house. There will be no reserv-
ed seats. Make your plans now to
see one of the best royalty plays in

Aggieland, Nov. 18, 1926.
Miss Louise Barekman,
Dear Louise and J. T. A. C. Friends:
I have read so many interesting let- 1
ters from ex-students in recent issues
of The J-Tac, that I thought maybe
pome old friends would like to know
how East Texas is progressing. It
niakes the members of the class of '24
feel mighty old and important to read
and hear of their old classmates' suc-
cesses in responsible positions. And
the mortality, in the sea of matrimony
is alarming! It seems few exes of '24
write back to old Tarleton except the
married ones if we may judge from
The J-Tac. •
May I give a brief report of my-
self ? During summer of '24 I attend-
ed a C. M. T. C. camp at Denver, Colo.,
and returned to teach in the Timpson
high school as "Prof." of Science. Dur-
ing that year one boy was influenced
by me to attend J. T. A. C., Homer
(Goat) Smith, whom some may re-
member. During the summer of '25
the "sweet melody of the mule, the
rhythmic chirp of the cricket, and the
green verdure of the landscape tempt-
ed me." In other words I farmed as a
one-galliised farm boy, trying to dig, -*
hoe, plow, and scrape up sufficient
funds to enter A, & M. It's quite
superfluous to go into detail about
how rich I got, but that fall certain
parties were hoodwinker into trusting
me with enough ready cash to pay my
board and room here. Anything else
I got I "rustled" for it doing odd jobs
—yes, odd jobs, for a fellow will do
most anything under such circum-
stances, as. many Tarleton farmer
boys know. Furthermore, I was a
low-rating "Junior Fish"—'nuff sed,
for no one who hasn't actually experi-
enced. the manifestation of brotherly
affection here at A. & M. can fully
appreciate the joys—and sorrows—■
of a "Junior Fish."
Uncle Sam wafc still donating his
"free" gifts even more free-heartedly
than' at J. T. A. C.; so, out of sheer
gratitude ( ? ) , I returned the favor by
attending the R. O. T. C. camp at San
Antonio last summer. To recuperate
I returned to my father's peaceful '
rural estate near Lorigview for the
remaining month of vacation.,
This year finds me, along with seve-
ral other Tarleton boys of '24-'25, a
high rating cheese-knife carrier—but
the nice little J. T. A. C. diamond has
been remodeled in '27 style into two
shiny little discs. "Black Eye" com-
pany in old Fort Leggett is now my
There are about fifty of us Tarleton,1
exes here, about half of whom are
Junior Fish from the class of '26,
some of whom I don't know so well.
But then there's Fish "Doc" Butler,
"Bean" Davis, Joe Hancock, Ray
Shaver, Vernon Fitzhugh, etc., ad in-
finitum. All of us seem to feel like
the old negro preacher, "Glad I'se
heah!"—even, these poor pitiful, sym-
pathy-provoking fish! However, the
Colonel'has made them sergeants and
.their lot is much improved over for-
mer years. I hear from Roy Nash
occasionally at Wichita Falls. He
vows he is coming to Aggieland next
year or something will "bust loose!"-
Regards, to thejfaculty, students and
friends at Tarleton.

ed to death."
