FRENCH COMEDY TAKES BOARS

"LE CHATEAU HISTORIQUE" TO BE PUT ON IN JORDAN HALL TO-NIGHT

Berr de Turrique, will take place in Jordan Hall this evening at 8 o'clock. Tickets at $1.50 each may be obtained from C. W. Cheney '15, Randolph 26, or at Herrick's.

"Le Chateau Historique" is a comedy in three acts. Marguerite Baudoin, the heroine, after reading some novels by Paul coudray, discoves a strong attraction to him. She writes to his publisher for a portrait of him, which arrives while her husband's best friend, Claude Barrois, is showing him some pictures of a trip. The husband's exchanges it for one of Barrois and introduced the latter as Coudray in order to depreciate his character. His success is interrupted by the arrival of Marguerite's brother Ludovic, who knows Coudray well. Marguerite shows him the picture and he discovers the trick. He, however, himself resembles the author, so they decide to get even by introducing him as the real Coudray. This furnishes an opportunity for several dramatic situations before the tangle is straightened out.
