BIG AUDIENCE PROMISED
The "Merry Wives of Windsor,"
which is to be given by the Dramatic
Department of the University tonight
at the Franing, will attract one of the
largest audiences ever assembled in
that edifice. Every reserved seat was
taken by this morning, leaving only
the six back rows in the balcony for
general admission, and it was thought
those, too, would be put on the reserv-
ed list. The interest taken in the play
is certainly a marked tribute to the
director, Miss E. Marie Anderson, and
to the performers and promoters.
addresses were made by Prof. Tho-
burn and Prof. Dale, and the rooms
were decorated and costues appro-
priate to George and Martha Washing-
ton times. There was a large attend-
ance, and some of the costumes were
very beautiful and elaborate.
TWO ALARMS OF FIRE

A fire started to burn off the lawn
near the Baptist church got away
from the promoters last evening about
7 o'clock and threatened to do some
damage. It was put out, however, be-
fore the fire wagon got to it.
At 12:30 today another alarm was
caused by a small barn on the R. Ele-
veld lots on West Symmes catching
fire. It burned to the ground, with a
loss of some $60, hut was confined to
