GREETS STROLLER PLAY Amateurs Have Little Trouble With Difficult Roles COSTUMES ELABORATE Topping productions of the Strollers in all around success, "Mice ami Men," was presented to a large and appreciative audience of University and townspeople at the Lexington Opera House last Friday night. The entire cast, from Mark Embury to that sniveling, little orphan girl last in line.furnlshed a revelation of unbelievable correctness in amateur character interpretation. Costumes used in the play were elaborately gorgeous In the striking colors of the time, and what is equally commendable, they were remarkable fits. The scenery, also characteristic of the eighteenth century, was all that could be desired. Anne Molloy, Gus Gay, Milton and Eliza Spurrier had the leading parts and can probably lay claim to the lion's share of honors. polka-dotte- Re-ve- ll Miss Molloy Much Admired From the first appearance of "Miss Molloy behind the footlights in "Mice and Men" as "Little Britain," a , pretty, vivacious and mischievous little "orphan brat," until with a camouflage kiss, Captain Lovell claimed her his own as Peggy, a sweet and demure young woman, at the last curtain, every male heart in the audience was grappled in the shackles of her loveliness. Slle was exceedingly graceful tho the dance was deleted by Dean Hamilton and Professor Melcher, and it can be reasonably supposed that she tripped over the heath with' that fairylike movement for which she is noted In the ballroom;, That she was not acting but was just herself Peggy, Little Britain, and Anne are one is the highest tribute that can be paid her. And Gus Gay knew how to make love with all the confidence of the successful man who knows not the meaning of the word "reverse" in connection with his 'affaires d'amour.' Tall strikingly handand some with his iron gray hair and lined face, Gus was the star of the play. Depicted as a strong well bred, educated landowner of England's romantic class, he was the master of situation, no matter how complex. Gay shows rare promise if the stage is chosen as his vocation. The Reckless Redcoat. dashing, reckless, red coated The Captain Lovell of tho British army was played by Milton Rovell, so gallant and bravo that he was- thrown into many an ugly situation for tho reason that ho could not clear himself if in so doing he would embarrass any woman. In interpreting tho character of Captain Lovell, Rovell was at (Continued on Pago Three) -
