The Samuel French awards of two hundred dollars each, for the two best one-act plays produced during the National Little Theatre Tournament which closed Saturday night at the Waldorf Theatre, were won by Miss Maxine Finsterwald, whose play “Seven Against One,” was presented by the Association Players of the 92nd Street Y. M. H. A., and Miss Maxine Block, whose tragedy, “Eyes,” was presented by the Morse Players of St. Louis, under the auspices of the St. Louis Art League.

In addition, the two productions were ranked third and fourth in the general competition and received additional prizes of two hundred dollars each. Twenty productions, eight of them eligible for the French awards, were entered in the tournament.
