Clearly, someone discovered dramatic lighting and is very excited.

Noted in newspaper review: "A record audience enjoyed this unusual psychological drama of menacing coercion, a credit to any amateur group. Mrs. W. R. Davis, the director, has always had a real talent for casting her plays [. . .]. It has always seemed a pity that she has not had an adequate theatre in which to produce the college plays. Most college dramatic departments as old as the one at Whitman, own the most modern equipment that is available. Mrs. Davis has always been able to produce interesting plays in spite of the fact that such equipment has not been provided for her. Perhaps some day such a stage will be built for the college, properly acknowledging the efforts of this pioneer in dramatic arts in the Northwest much as the stadium was named to honor the much loved 'Nig' Borleske."
