At least that la what Jack Ult Ik
doing wltli thoae who are to priMluis
"Help Wanted" at the Overholser next
week beginning Monday night. A
visit to playwright I-alt's training
camp on the stage of the Overholser
any day this week would at first have
been priMliictlvit of doubt about the
cotiiMiiiy ever Mug ready to present
the piny hut after watering (be re
tiearmtlH a while (lie onlisiker would
be convinced that "Help Wanted" will
be finished product the first night.
The company that has been playing
at the Overholser la to be supple-
mented by othent from (he etst. The
Hunting company baa never played
"Help Wanted" but the memhetn
took to It very readily. They conld
have presented ll very creditably no
doubt without the help of Mr. ljilt
tut It would have been according to
their own Ideas of the play.

Then the actor aaya hla 11 net with
nobody In front of blut for an au-

wrote the play and be knowa how It

that. The actor aaya hla lines aa he
think they should be spoken. Maybe

by A WHier and ileplcta the pleas-
the lines where to stand and where

II the I'atlenre of Job.
1'laywrlght Jack Ult U not savage
with the actor and uot rente. When
they fall to catch his meaning he just
boa them do It all over again until be
Is satisfied. Honiellmcs one little part
of a scene will take a long time for
the drilling. Mr. Ult could conire
hla stock of iMitleuce with that s-
essed by Job and the patriarch would
be backed off the Ismrds. Job never
conducted a rehearsal In his life.
At first It must seem like a bos'les
task even with exiarlenced atage peo-
ple but after a time It all begin to
assume tangible shape. The player
get (he Idea all right. It Is noticeable
that Misa Hunting seldom ha to be
told. If she I loid once how any rt
of her peech must Is? presented It Is
not neceaeary to repeat the Instruc-
tion a aecotid time.
And In "Help Wanted" Mis bunt
Ing will be a real star for (be part
a pi wsj rs to have been written for her.
At least she fit Into It Just a well aa
though Mr. Ult had studied all her
characteristic aud had written the
play for her alone.
In "Help Wanted" Misa Hunting I
a atenoghapher the cutest little Mon-
ographer that ever graced a business
office. She haa the aaine trial that
other atenographera have bad and
that they are having now.
T an Audience of One
No doubt the Overholser will be
filled to capacity Mouday night at the
flrat preeentaUon of "Help Wanted"
for It la to be a high priced play at
popular price here. It la not a stock
company any louger presenting Mr.
Ult'a production but a road company
which will atart after one week In hls
It may be that tome of thoee In the
audience will be qualified to rritbixe
"Help Wanted" hut not to the extent
that Jack Ult himself I doing It this
week. At the rehearsals there I but
one In the audience and tbat one la
Mr. Ult himself. He aee every flaw
and he la there to correct It
Playing before the large audience
.will lie eaey compared to playing be-
fore tbat one nan. The audience will
Dot Ha up and make objection when
anything goea wrong Mr. Ult
doe. ' The audience will applaud nil
while Mr. Ult doe not applaud he
pnta la a word of approval now and
then which mean the nana thing.
Jack Ult playwright' used to.be a
newspaper nan grinding away on n
deak and writing play between time.
At flrat hi play were changed by
those who produced them changed
o much that be didn't recognlae them

when he waa unsophisticated.
But now they do not. When he
