Mayor Ernest Langford having given his "blessing” to the production of the satire on Japan to be given by the Aggie Players and Singing Cadets on July 14-15. Recently "The Mikado” was scheduled for a professional run in Tokio, with s Japanese cast for Japanese audiences, but oc cupation authorities clamped down on the show, just before dress rehearsal. The reason given was that the Japanese people were not yet ready to appreciate the burlesque of Jap anese ways. Thia was not the first time that "The Mikado" haa run into censorial difficulties. Years a- go Uueen Victoria stopped the London production during a vis it of Japanese royalty to Eng land. However, the operetta was given in Tokio a short time ago by (11 performers for a strictly Western audience. Students on (lotton Tour.
