It is seldom that an opportunity is offered to honor a Harvard man who has achieved such instantaneous success as Edward Sheldon '08, whose first play has been hailed by the great majority of critics as a work of originality and power. Like "The Great Divide," by William Vaughn Moody '93, "Salvation Nell" is marked by intensity of interest and force of action, and its numerous passages of virile strength give promise of greater work in the future. A special performance of Mr. Sheldon's play will be given at the Majestic Theatre tonight by Mrs. Fiske and her company. Practically the whole of the orchestra will be occupied by members of the University, who will have an opportunity to witness a remarkable production, as well as to welcome a graduate whose initial work has stamped him as one of the few leading Harvard dramatists.
