The undergraduates of Harvard are still blind to the true position of the Dramatic Club. By their indifference to its performances they have not only bitten off their own noses, but they have denied their support to one of the most significant movements that has been started at Harvard during the last decade.
The Dramatic Club is in a unique position. It has some fame, some outside reputation, its example has led to the establishment of similar organizations in other colleges, yet it is not appreciated at home. As a result, although it may be said to have won a recognized place for itself, its fight is not yet over. The undergraduate although he has heard of the remarkable performances of the Dramatic Club, is unintelligent enough to prefer to spend far more money to see a play in Boston. Let him remember that plays produced by the Dramatic Club have been, and will be produced in Boston theatres. He is not seeing inferior plays or inferior acting when he attends the dramas to be given in Brattle Hall tonight. The Dramatic Club needs and deserves the financial support and backing which its peculiar and unsocial make-up deprives it of. To earn this it presents this remarkable opportunity to the undergraduate; he may attend the performances at the reduced rate of fifty cents. In this the Dramatic Club is doing what it should do, and it is to be hoped that those who have been thus treated will do what they should do, and give the Dramatic Club their strongest support.
