The Deutscher Verein will next year return to the custom of giving a public performance of a modern play. The play selected for next year is a comedy entitled, "Schluck and Jan" by Gerhart Hauptmann. It will probably be given about the second week in January and the trials for parts will be held the week after College opens next fall.
Men wishing to try for parts are urged to buy the book now and to study it during the summer. The book may be obtained from Theodore H. Castor & Co., 23 School Street, Boston.
