Senior Play Is Selected By Director “Thunder in Air” Title of Upperclass Drama; Tryouts Announced.. “Thunder in the Air,” a three-act drama by Robins Millar, has been chosen by W. Ray MacDonald, university play director, as the annual senior class play. It will be given ln November, before Thanksgiving. The play is a serious production, which concerns an Englishman who has been killed in the war. He returns several years after his death in many different guises, appearing to each of his friends and relatives as they remembered him. Thus to his mother, he is still a little boy; to his father he ls a waster and a blackguard; while to the girl who loves him, he is the handsome youth to whom she is engaged; and to others he is still as they knew him. The arrival of a man who had known Ronald’s true,self in the war complicates matters, particularly as the man is In love with Pamela, the girl. Tryouts for the play have been held each afternoon this week and the cast will undoubtedly be announced the early part of the week. Each year the senior class presents a play which is rather serious in nature and which necessitates more ability than does a light comedy. Last year the production given was “Craig's Wife," George Kelly’s domestic drama, with Catherine Stone and William Kauffman in the leading roles. Professor MacDonald will direct “Thunder in the Air” which will go into rehearsal immediately. SPEECH CONTEST FINALS SLATED TONIGHT AT 8:15 Twelve Orators Compete for Cups This Evening in Law Auditorium.

If the speeches delivered ln the preliminaries may be taken as a criterion, 12 very interesting talks may be predicted. A great deal of interest has been shown in this year’s contest as is evident from the fact that twice as many students entered the preliminaries than in any previous year. The topics for the finals will be given the contestants just two hours befefre they take their place on the platform. The topics, as before, will range from our next president to subsidising of football players, from prohibition to unemployment and communism.
