Henry Arthur Jones to Speak

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Mr. Henry Arthur Jones, the noted English playwright, will be in Cambridge this afternoon to give a lecture under the auspices of the Dramatic Club. Mr. Jones will speak on "The Aims and Duties of a National Theatre" in Emerson D at 4.30 o'clock. The lecture will be open to the public. Owing to the necessary return of Mr. Jones to England to produce one of his latest plays, the lecture could not be arranged except during the mid-year period.

Mr. Jones's first dramatic attempt in London was made in 1879 when his comedietta, "A Clerical Error," was accepted and produced by Mr. Wilson Barrett. In 1884 Mr. Jones wrote the first of the series of plays of modern English life with which he has since become so closely identified. This play, "Saints and Sinners," brought up the propriety of dealing with religious matters on the stage and provoked a great deal of criticism. Other famous plays of Mr. Jones's are "The Liars," "The Physician," and "Mrs. Dane's Defence."
