The Miscellany News for November 14 drew the attention of "lovers , madmen, poets (that includes just about everybody" to the upcoming annual play-reading by the English department—this year Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream. "Come," said the notice, "and see what fools these mortals be."

The play, featuring a memorable performance by Professor of English Lynn C. Bartlett as Bottom, was presented on November 20 in the Green and Grey Room.
