    [Scandinaven's Literary and Dramatic Criticism]

    On behalf of the Scandinavian people, I wish to inform you that the editor of Scandinaven, or the reporter who serves as its dramatic and literary critic, makes fools of the public, the actors, and the playwrights. A short time ago there was an announcement regarding A.B.C. Scandinaven made it a farce by saying how deep and clever the author of the A.B.C. was to write such a wonderful book. And before Christmas there was a performance of a play, "Newlywed," by Bjornson. The Scandinaven critic stated that he saw the same play at the Royal Theater in Copenhagen, but that there was no comparison; the Chicago amateurs were far above the Royal Theater. Chicago actors played in a much more refined and delicate style, etc.

    That is the kind of criticism Scandinaven dares print, when it is well known that the Chicago actors are only amateurs, trying to bring a little joy to their countrymen in Chicago. That is the thanks Scandinaven is giving them, comparing them with star professional actors!
