The Maroon VOL. VII LOYOLA UNIVERSITY, NEW ORLEANS, LA., FRIDAY, MAY 10, 1929 No. 16 "WITCHING HOUR" ROLES ASSIGNED BY DOC BONOMO Ganucheau to Take Lead in Coming Thespian Production States Dirctor With less than two weeks remaining before the presentation of the Thespians' final offering of the season, "The Witching Hour," "Doc" Bonomo announces that roles have been assigned members of the society and rehearsals are going forward rapidly. Paul Ganucheau, who enacted one of the leading roles in "Three Wise Fools" last season, will be entrusted with the main part in the coming production, that of Jack Brookfield. Joe Abraham, president of the Thespians, will have the part of Frank Hardmuth, and other roles will be portrayed as follows: Jo, Joe Blasi; Tom Denning, Patout Burns; Harvey, Al Kreider; Clay Whipple, Harvey Strayhan; Lew Ellinger, Tim Duggan; Justice Prentice, Gerald Rault; Justice Henderson, J. D. Bloom; Emmett, Benet Cain; Servant, Bill Dardis; Mrs. Alice Campbell, Marian Ouilliber; Mrs. Helen Whipple, Helen Cahill, and Viola, Louise Schonekas. "The Witching Hour" is a four-act drama from the pen of Augustus Thomas. It treats with the comparitively little-used subject of mental telepathy, having for its central character a professional gambler, played by Ganucheau, who possesses this remarkable faculty to such a marked degree that he has a complete knowledge of his opponents' cards during the "friendly" poker sessions. He is, however, strangely unaware of this uncanny faculty and plays on under the impression that mere coincidence is responsible for his good fortune. Such a situation naturally gives rise to interesting complications, and the events which befall him and the remaining characters form a highly entertaining theme play. "The Witching Hour" was originilly presented at the Haekett Theater, New York, back in 1907. STRAYHAN. GANUCHEAU LEAD DEBATING SOCETY Election of officers for next year featured the meeting of the Debating Society held Friday morning in Marquette Hall. Harvey Strayhan, senior arts student, who will enter the Law school next fall, was re-elected to the office of president, Paul Ganucheau, president of the junior legal and of the senior arts classes, was named to the vice-presidency, and two freshmen were chosen for the remaining offices.

The committee is composed of Harold Rouchell, Gerard Rault and Harvey Strayhan. COUNCIL PRESIDENT GERARD A. RAULT FRENCH COMEDY GIVEN IN MARQUETTE HALL WEDNESDAY Making- its initial appearance behind the fotlights, Le Cercle Francais the newly-organized French society of Loyola, entertained a large number of French students and their friends In Marquette Auditorium on Thursday evening, May 2. The presentation rendered was the one act French play, "L'Anglais Tel Qu'on Le Parle," written by the famous French playwright, Tristran Bernard. The performance was under the direction of Rev. Andre J. de Monsabert, dean of the Romance Language Department and professor of senior French. The leading role of the comedy was played by Victor 1.. Choppin, who interpreted the character of Eugene, a nonchalant pretender who poses as an interpreter in a Parisian hotel. The erroneous interpretations and blunders of Eugene gave rise to many laughable situations and formed the basis of the evening's comedy. The characterization of Choppin was skillfully done and merited praise from an appreciative audience. The romantic sequence of the play was supplied by Nicholas Masters as the English girl and Monell Segura as her French lover, who elope to Paris to escape the wrath of the girl's father, portrayed by Remy Grosz. Each of these parts was skillfully done, especially that of Masters who faithfully interpreted a difficult feminine role. Others in the cast who received praise for their portrayals were Francois Escofier, C. Montet, P. D. Martinez and Louis Caillouet. Before the performance Ruffia Carlos delivered an introductory talk, explaining to the audience the purpose and plans of the French society.
