'MAKING HIS NAME'
A New Comedy by JAMES LANSDALE HODSON
Performed by the STATION REPERTORY PLAYERS
Characters:
Archibald Marchmont (A Young-Man-About-Town)
Alice Vandaer (Hiram's Daughter)
Hiram K. Vandeer (A Wealthy American)
George (Archibald's Right-Hand Man)
To enable listeners to enjoy this little comedy, it is necessary to describe, briefly, the appearance of the sitting-room in Archibald's flat where the scene is laid. An attempt has been made to transform a perfectly comfortable sitting-room into a business-like office. On the dining table are a pot of gum, two or three date stamps, a telephone and odd paraphernalia which one may expect to find in a busy office.
The pictures have been removed from the walls, and in their place are several largo cards bearing a peculiar assortment of mottoes, such as 'Bright Sayings Limited,' 'Make sure of the roses and the thorns will get there by themselves,' etc.
As the story opens, Archibald is busily engaged tapping out the air of a popular tune on the table, with the aid of one of the date stamps.
