The days between Thanksgiving
and'Christmas Have always been a
time that tests the character of the
stud®nt body. There is nearly! al-
ways a falling off of interest, then

ents of this year are to be very
highly complimented because they
exactly' reversed this occurence.
They have accomplished the im-
probable and that in such a manner
as to erase all doubt as to their
sterling quality. ,

Friday 'njght, January 10, Bfr1.
J. W. Zellner, "Protean Character-
ise' will entertain at the Tarleton
Auditorium.. * 1
' The program of Mr. Zellner is
decidedly unique and colorful. Viv-
id characterizations from life, lit-
erature and history, in full costume
and makeup, appear in rapid suc-
cession with such startling, fijielijy
'to; life, in such glowing color oj. ex-
quisite scenery 'and lighting that
the audience is transported out of
the reality of the p,resent and. into
the realms of, drama andi romance
and the (Colorful past of the ages,: ••

grippingly dramatic characteri%U-
tions as Judas Isc'ariot and the
noble and powerful figure of Moses.
This is a feature of rare education-
al value. Years have been Spent
in careful research arid in the
authoritative study of the physical
and mental characteristics of these
great leaders in order to present
them with faithful correctness to
the most minute detail. • It brixigs
with it the electric thrill of actual-
ly meeting these great men face: to
Humor, variety,, color, absorbing
interest, deep intellectual stir and
tremendous' emotional sway are
blended ija this swiftly nioving pro-

staged, so exquisitely: iigji'teid apd

cidedly worthwhile arid different

All1 characters are presented' in
full makeiip and costume. The aver-

require only six to eight seconds
each. His quick Change work is
nothing short of marvelous, :
