Miss Clarissa Harrold Impersonations From Dramatic Literature Season 1915-1916 Appreciations Miss Clarissa Harrold seems to me to possess every attribute that a good reader should possess. Sympathy, tenderness, a loving heart, a keen intelligence, an appreciation of that which is beautiful in literature and in life, a fine sense of comedy, together with a gracious and beautiful presence, make her eminently fitted for the art of public reading. Especially have I enjoyed her reading of plays. Carol Hoyt Powers. Mrs. Leland Powers, Leland Powers School, Boston, Mass. I can speak with genuine enthusiasm of the platform work of Miss Clarissa Harrold. She is gifted with beauty and unusual talent. She is very able in character, as well as in the interpretation of great literature. Best of all, she has a winning sincerity which assures her success with any audience. Phidelah Rice. Member of the Faculty in the Leland Powers School. Miss Harrold's artistic readings were very acceptable to the large and enthusiastic audience. We were fortunate, indeed, to secure her. C. F. Quillian, Ass't Sec'y Los Angeles (Cal.) Y. M. C. A. Miss Harrold has a pleasing personality and reads charmingly. Her readings assured the success of our concert.

Repertoire The Truth a three-act play Clyde Fitch Clyde Fitch's comedy, The Truth, deals with a man's inability to understand his wife's habit of telling fibs.
