To the Editors of the Crimson:
Now that the French Play is over and has proved to be such a popular success, it seems to me that it would be but fair to the students who devoted so much of their time to it, as well as a worthy undertaking for the increase of the French library, to give two or three performances of "Le Malade Imaginaire" in New York; it is unfortunately too late to carry out this plan during the coming Christmas vacation, but Easter week would, I think, be a very fitting time for it. This project could be carried out with very little trouble, as, by chance, almost every one of the principals hails from New York, and would be only too willing to display his dramatic talent to his friends; the ballet and final ceremony ought to be filled out with New York fellows, who know how to dance and who will do their share in disposing of tickets to their many friends, thus assuring large audiences. The consent of the Faculty for such performances could surely be gained, for it is a worthy effort with a worthy end. '97.
