The Board of Educahon
Board members are elected by the people each April.
They hire teachers, approve expenditure of money, and
see that the school is kept in good condition.
The members have wiselv directed an educational
program for its constituents: lt is assured that We will
have good schools, both grade and high for some years
to come. This year has been most eventful-Hooppolc
voted successfully in October to be annexed to the
Annawan-Alba High school district. When things ap-
peared rather dark in respect to us maintaining our
high school in the future, the board of education had
the support of the vast majority of our rural neighbors
and local residents when it recommended the formation
of a community unit district. All areas responded and
the vote carried by a seven and one-half to one major-
ity. The willingness of the people to support such a
project is a vote of confidence given to the past and
'present members of the board of education.
A new board was elected to reorganize Annawan-
Alba, two-thirds of Yorktown, and a portion of Corn-
.Better educational opportunities can now be offered
to the children of this new unit district.
ANNAWAN TOWNSHIP TRUSTEES
Left to right: Marion Arnold, Louis I. Morey, Gail M.
A trustee must be a resident of the township and
twenty-one years of age. A trustee is elected for a term
of three years. Trustees shall hold regular semi-annual
meetings on the first Mondays of April and October.
They must examine moneys and effects of the corpora-
tion. They may receive any gift or grant made for the
use and good of the school.
Trustees are guardians of township school funds, ob-
serve the condition of the school, and appoint the school
treasurer. Fortunately, Annawan Township's schools
are in good hands.
ln 1787 the Northwest Ordinance was passed, where-
by the sixteenth section in each township was given to
the township to help support education. Most of such
sections have been sold.
ALL IN HONOR OF OUR SCHOOL
The former Annawan High School was destroyed by
fire February 2, 1922. The building was burned to the
ground, completely destroying all records.
The new Annawan-Alba Township High School was
built in 1924-,lt was dedicated in the early spring of 1925.

SENIOR CLASS HISTORY

Trcnxnrev '.., ,..,...,,.....,.......,.,....,...... D oralee Pont
Our class adviser was Miss johnson.
lVe emerged from our initiation with flving colors
and looked forward to the next year when we could
'fdish it out" instead of "taking it."
All of the members of the class returned for our
sophomore year. Ray Shaw presided as president of our
class: Doralee Pont as vice presidentg Don Moon as
sceretaryg Dwainc Dynes as treasurer, and LaVonne
Spears as reporter. Our class adviser was Miss Noble.

ald Swearingen, Shirley Croegaert, and Kenneth Clark.
Due to the leadership of our class officers we were very
active. Under the direction of Miss Swirmicky the play
K'The Funny Brats" was presented. The junior-Senior
banquet, sponsored by the junior class, was a huge
success. The decorations were built around a Navy
theme. liugene Eilers and Donna Mae Minnaert were
crowned king and queen of the homecoming as a result
of a campaign conducted by the junior class.
XVhen we returned for our senior year we found four
new members. They were Beatrice Minnaert, Margene
Gay, Ronald Goembel and Bill Price who were former
pupils in the Hooppole High School. Under the leader-
ship of our class adviser, Mr. Osborn, we elected the
following officers: President, Bill Priceg vice president.
Dean Ouartg secretary, Marilyn Nowers, treasurer, Don
Moong reporter, Ronald Goeinbel. Student Council rep-
resentative was Doralee Pont. The entire class took part
in our play f"l'attletale." Mr. Osborn served as director.
Wie are all looking forward to May 28 when we will
receive our diplomas for our four years of hard work
and fun. To our teachers, board members, and parents,
we extend our great appreciation for their cooperation
in helping us attain our goal.

Since our school days are coming to an end
in another year, we really got down to busi-
ness to set an example for the freshmen and
sophomores, and prove to the seniors that we,
too, are growing up.
All during the basketball season we work-
ed hard selling coke, hot dogs, candy, and
popcorn at the home games.
Some of the members of the junior Eng-
lish class presented a one-act play, "The Ad-
vice Doctor," for the State Inspector, April
6th. This play illustrated the necessity of
studying English literature and grammar
while in school.
ll-Vhen Spring was just around the corner
the juniors picked out a play, "Campus Quar-
antine," and started to work on it. They fin-
ished and a hilarious product was given to an
appreciative audience in the high school gym-
nasium, May 12.
Those who were not in the play started to
work out plans and details for the junior-
Senior banquet, an event to honor the seniors
and faculty. A theme was decided upon and
it was carried out to the smallest detail.
Although we believe that this year we have
worked harder and have had more fun than
ever before, we are anxiously awaiting the
day when we will be honored and sophisti-
cated seniors! I!

On September 22, 1937, nineteen freshmen
entered Annawan-Alba Township High
School. September 30, we were highly decor-
ated for initiation. During the day the girls
had to wear men's overalls, their shirts back-
wards, and their dad's shoes. Their hair was
worn in pigtails. The boys wore dresses and
boots. Everyone had a balloon tied to his hair,
a raw egg in one pocket, and his arm tied in a
sling. VVe had to provide everyone with can-
dy and gum upon request. At noon we had
to sweep the sidewalk in front of the school
houseg and, of course, the cameras clicked.

XV e have enjoyed attending the various
school activities and are thankful that we have
had the opportunity to participate in them,
especially the Valentine Dance. This was the
first formal dance that we have attended.
VVe hope that our next three years are as
happily spent as our first one.

Just a few words about the Vocational
Agriculture program. Each year We real-
ize that the business of farming is be-
coming more and more intricate. Just
fifteen years ago farmers around Anna-
wan had heard of limestone. but had class-
ified it as something that was hardly worth
while. Hill drop fertilizers were some-
thing few people used. Hybrid corn was
almost unheard of until 1935 and now farm-
ers use it practically one hundred per
cent. Each year we are developing new
varieties of oats, beans, and corn. New
methods of fertilizing, new breeding plans
for our livstock, new crops, new rotations,
methods of soil conservation, and fertiliza-
tion have been introduced.
It is these things that we try to cover in
our Agriculture classes. We try to' do it in
a way that the student will be able to put
them into practice or at least see them in
operation. Our chief tools then are field
trips and farming programs. Our motto's
"Learning by Doing."
During this year each of the various
commercial classes have had to overcome
the handicap of having four different
The typing I and II students have work-
ed hard to develop their ability to type-
write their required words per minute.
Everyone has achieved their goal.
Commercial law students say it is very
interesting to form cases and also solve
We think our bookkeeping students have
learned enough that they can keep books
for a businessman or themselves.
Shorthand students have concentrated
on developing their speed.
Three years of English are required, al-
though four years are offered. This past
year English classes have been interest-
ing ones, having been taught by Mrs.
Browning. In all of the English classes
both grammar and literature are taught.
English I studied "A Midsummer Night's
Dream." For several days freshmen work-
ed earnestly on booklets about this play.
English II studied "Julius Caesar." Only
fivergirls were in English IV. This class
studied "Macbeth" and made books to il-
lustrate the play. Magazine and newspaper
items were read and reported upon.
Latin was taught again this year after a
two-year recess. The five members of the
class were: Norma Bollengier, Geraldine
Frank, John Gripp, Lois Maarman and
Pattie Thornbrugh. 4
Homemakers for America. In order to
build a strong country, homes must be
back of it, Although home economics is
not required, many girls choose it as one
of their electives.
The home economics department is lo-
cated in the new addition. Our instructor
is Miss Betty Ann Ohlmacher. The girls
are divided into two classes.
This year two electric stoves, an elec-
tric refrigerator, and other small items of
new equipment were added to make our
department more attractive and efficient.
During our course of study we have
served hot lunches for the school pupils.
sewed attractive garments for ourselves
and studied good grooming.
For a period of three weeks homemak-
ing 1II and agriculture III changed
classesg thus the girls, under the direction
of Mr. Geiger, were instructed in simple
household repair tasks.
Under the guidance of Mr. Ehrig the
students have attempted to learn some
basic facts of geometry and algebra.
In geometry the past year they have
been studying how to construct and bi-
sect angles and triangles, to draw circles,
find diameters and how to measure them.
They have had a review of some algebra.
The students have studied similar poly-
gons, areas of polygons, and regular poly-
gons. They also learned theroms.
In algebra they have been studying about
general numbers and their use in formu-
las and equations. They have solved equa-
tions having one or two unknowns. They
have learned how to make graphs and how
to read them. The students have learned
the use of algebraic fractions in formulas,
equations, and plain straight problems.
They have had to learn a few rules as well
as a few terms throughout the school year.
United States history is one of our most
enjoyable classes in school. It is taught
entirely different from any other class.
The class is taught by the lecture method.
We take the notes. Thus at the end of a
six weeks we put our notes into a note
book, illustrate them and turn them in for
a grade. We also have been writing dis-
sertations every six weeks, using "Tura-
bian's Rules for Dissertation Writ1ng."
World history is taught by the discussion
method. The students studied about the
early civilizations, empires, and languages.

This class is also a discussion class. The
work is divided into two subjects. The first
semester we studied czvics. The last
semester was devoted to ec-onomxcs which
proved very interesting. We have had sev-
eral interesting debates. The teacher of
social sciences is Mr. Osborn.
Under the direction of Mr. Ehrig we
have enjoyed a great variety of activities
during the year. During the fall we played
softball. touch football, and six-man foot-
ball. The freshman and sophomore boys
played a football game with Atkinson.
When winter came we began having
class in the gymnasium. We played such
socialized games as basketball, badmin-
ton. and volleyball. We also studied bas-
ketball fundamentals and did calisthenics,
As spring approached and the weather
began getting warmer we again went out-
side and began practicing baseball, track,
soccer, and archery.
All boys who were inteersted in baseball
entered a tournament between classes dur-
ing the spring. This contest was won by
the senior boys.
P. E. is required of every girl in school
that passes her physical examination.
There are two classes, and each girl at-
tended the class of her choice. Physical
education should not only develop the
body and keep it fit, but should teach girls
the joys of recreation, how to work, play,
and get along with each other.
During our classes we are instructed in
volleyball and basketball during the win-
ter months: and, soccer, archery, baseball,
badminton. and croquet during the spring

Under the guidance of Miss Walters
some of the students have tried to learn
some facts about general science, biologv.
and physics. During the fifth six weeks
we were sorry to have Miss Walters leave
us for three weeks becnuse of illness:
however. she was replaced by some of the
other teachers and the classes continued.
The biology students have studied about
plant and animal life.
In physics the students have tried hard
to learn some of the basic facts of light,
magnetism, and electricity.
The students who take general science
have studied about planets, transporta-
tion, communication, heat, light, elec-
tricity, and many other things.
Under the excellent direction of Mr.
Vitto the band had a very successful year.
Some of the features on our program
were the annual spring concert and the
contest. We also had the honor to play for
several assembly programs. A basketball
game at Annawan High was never com-
plete without the band. It gave us an op-
portunity to play for a very appreciative
audience. Besides playing in a group, some
of our members played as soloists.

At the beginning of our school year
nearly every girl in our school came to
chorus. Everyone was interested and will-
ing to learn. At first we thought we were
going to be without a teacher until Mr.
Osborn offered any spare time that he
might have to do chorus work. Under his
direction we were able to have chorus
once a week, until recently.
We hope that next year there can be
more time given to vocal work. We have
very good talent and feel that it could be
developed into a beautiful singing group.
This should add much to the educational
aspects of the school. .
Every Thursday morning during the
fifth period Mr. Osborn held a musical
period with sixteen members participat-
ing. Many surprising things were discov-
ered, even to the boys themselves. If any-
one were listening they would find the
boys doing very well. During the last six
weeks it was necessary to discontinue
chorus. We are sure that there are many
boys in school who are capable of sing-

As we are about to take our departure from
Annawan I-ligh we look back over the year
and remember many things which we have
seen. Perhaps you will remember them, also.
Of course most people will remember the
good things longest so we will begin by tell--
ing you of a new organization among the par-
ents and friends of the school. The Band
Boosters organized during the winter and
elected their president, Ray Bollengier. Their
aim was to earn money to buy badly needed
band uniforms. One night loyal friends came
to the school and brought contributions for
a huge auction sale. As a result of the sale,
31.000 was earned in one night. This made
the purchase of the uniforms a reality instead
of a dream.
The homemaking department has been as-
sured, by means of a contract, of having a
new stove and frigidaire every year, for five
years, at the cost price of only one stove and
frigidaire, plus freight charges.
There are always a great number of jokes
made about "green freshmen" but our fresh-
WHAT WE SAW
men really deserve praise for the fine job they
did in entertaining the eighth graders. Next
year's freshmen have been introduced to high
school life and will not feel quite so strange
when they enter in the fall.
Under the direction of Mrs. Browning, the
junior English class presented a play to stress
good English. The title of the play was "The
During the year we have had three assein-
bly programs given by professional enter-
tainers. These programs were presented by
a harpist, a makeup artist, and a magician.
Since it would be a strange school if no one
did anything wrong we will tell you of some
of the things we have seen. yA,t one time dur-
ing the year we had a fad of water guns that
lasted so long but no longer. Occasionally dif-
ferent colored bubbles floated around. And,
too, some people tried tor "get byl' on other
people's work and receive credit for them-
Altogether this has been a memorable year
with many pleasures and some hardships.
. WHAT WE WOULD LIKE TO SEE
As we go out this year to face the future,
we can think of several things we would like
to see in and about the school.
A complete teaching staff, without any
More assemblies with high school students
participating, for instance. Bud Brown sing-
ing more often. A '
A stronger governing student council.
Movies that the entire school could see
would be most enjoyable. More organized
dances, semi-formal and formal.
Less girls who continually talk baby talk-
it does get rather monotonous.
More chorus workg also a spring concert.
Chorus robes would add that certain touch,
More advanced studies taught, such as:
chemistry, trigonometry, speech, industrial
and fine arts. A dramatics club should be or-
ganized, also, a debate team.
During the winter months a noon lunch
program, We think, would prove very success-
ful. Organized activities at noon hours with
everyone participating. Organized activities
between schools with less rivalry but better
sportsmanship shown. ,I

Louis Taaariiiieii T
At the annual basketball banquet the basketball boys were awarded
their letters. This year we had one speciali-the Athletic-Scholarship
Award. It was awarded to Louis Teerlinck. The requirements were
that he had to be in the upper fourth of his class for there semesters and
be a leader of his class. To get the award he also had to be a letterman.
The purpose of the award is to promote good scholarship, sports-
manship and leadership. This is the first year that Annawan has been a
member of the National Athletic Scholarship Society. VV e hope that
next year that more than one boy receives this award.
D. A. R. AWARD
Marilyn Nowers, a senior of Annawan High School, was chosen by
the student body and faculty to receive the D.A.R. Award. This award
is given on the basis of dependability, good citizenship, service, leader-
ship and patriotism.
,During her tour years at Annawan High School, Marilyn has always
been a leader in the high school activities. She has taken part in band,
chorus, G.A.A., F.H.A., and was a cheerleader.
Marilyn is a fine example of what every high school girl should strive
to be. The students are very proud of her.
DORALEE PGNT MARILYN NOXVERS ELSIE POWELL
Each year a normal scholarship is offered
to one of the three highest ranking students
in the senior class. He is then eligible to go to
any State Teachers' college that he wishes to
without paying tuition. He is also allowed
1580.000 per year for other expenses.
Doralee Pont was the highest ranking SILI-
dent in the senior class this year with an aver-
age of 4.7. Doralee is the daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Robert Pont. She has been a band mem-
ber for four years. She also was a member of
the G.A.A. and F.H.A. Doralee has had ma-
jor roles in both the junior and senior plays.
ln the Review, our school paper, she has tak-
en an active part. She was class treasurer in
her freshman year, vice president in her soph-
omore year and president her junior year.
Doralee is also a member of the Student Coun-
cil this year. She has performed with distinc-
tion the many duties that have been assigned
to her during her four years of high school
Marilyn Nowers will graduate with an av-
erage of 4.0. She is the daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Thomas Nowers. She was president of
the freshman class. Marilyn has belonged to
the G.A.A. and the F.H.A. for the past four

her junior year. As a junior she was chosen
to attend Girl's State as a representative of
Annawan. Elsie has been a member of the
Pep club for years. She is the daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. August Powell.
Scholarship is the most important part
of high school life. Too often it does not
receive sufficient recognition.
In order to be an honor student one must
have at least a 4.5 average. Giving each
A five points, B four points, and C three
points, a total of at least eighteen points
would be needed to have such an average.
Each six weeks an honor roll is composed
of students achieving these ratings. Special
merit is given for four A's or a 5.0 aver-
age. Seniors who have nineteen points or a
4.75 average are qualified for the princi-
pal's "B" list.
Letters are given for the scholarship the
same as are letters given for athletics.
A scholarship banquet was held this year
in honor of students who maintained at
least a 4.0 or B average throughout the
school year. Thirty-three pupils or about
41 per cent of the pupils enrolled had a
4.0 average and were guests at the scholar-
ship banquet. This was an admirable rec-
ord of which all of us should be proud.
On the night of February 14, the Student
Council sponsored a Vaelntine Dance which
was held in the school gymnasium.
The gymnasium was decoraged with a
beautiful red and white false ceiling with
red and white streamers around the edge
of the gymnasium. Tables and floor lamps
were placed around the gymnasium. "Doc"

THEY CALLED IT COURTIN'
Wouldn't it be nice if we could look back through the years and watch
what Grandma and Grandpa did on a date? just for fun letis try it and com-
pare Grandma's dates with our modern ones.
First, we find that Grandpa has been simply begging for the buggy all
week long, and finally his Pa has co-nsented to let him have it for the eve-
ning. Grandpa gets all dressed up in his best Sunday-go-to-meetin' clothes,
slicks back his hair, then goes out to "hitch old Dohbin' to the shayf' At last
he is off, with a feeling of perfect bliss, to visit the girl of his dreams.
When Grandpa arrives. Grandma greets him very sedately and ushers him
into the front parlor. He takes his seat at one end of the sofa, while she sits
down very straight and dignified on the other end-perhaps to spend a whole
evening with the family. The conversation begins with the usual accounts
of the weather and rather awkwardly slips into the day's happenings. After-
wards, there is a short pause during which Grandpa decides to steal one of
those "corner-of-the-eye" glances at Grandma, only to find that she has the
same idea. Blushingly Grandma gets up and offers to get some light refresh-
ments from the kitchen.
VVhen Grandma returns, she finds Grandpa hilariously engaged in the-
family picture album. He somehow uncovered it from the rear of the book
cupboard, where she had it hidden. She decides to endure the laughing re-
marks, so they sit down on the sofa Cthis time a little closerj and spend the
rest of a wonderful evening, laughing over Grandma's childhood scenes while
munching cookies and drinking lemonade.
Ah, yes! Grandma was quite a gal with her high-top shoes, front parlor
entertaining, and, of course, those scrumpuous bustles!

"WHAT IS A HIGH SCHOOL"
An inquiring person passing
Some high school students one day.
Stopped them and asked the question,
"VV hat is a high school, pray?"
The students were heard to answer,
"It's a building of wood and brick
VVith classrooms, teachers, and pupils
And many a volume thickf'
"But llve heard so much about itf'
The inquisitor did reply,
mls there nothing more to tell me
Than the things that meet the eye?"
The companions o-f my story
Then regarded him thoughtfully.
And one was quick to answer
But careless, as you shall see.
"It's four long years of studying
Some things you'd rather miss,
YVhile unsympathetic teachers
Are scolding for that and this.
It,s learning nothing that's useful,
The same old routine all the time.
Or writing notes out of boredom
QVVhich is often considered a crime."j
But the other thought more deeply
And answered in words like this:
"A high school means years of study
You wouldn't want to miss.
It's a preparation, a proving ground,
Striving earnestly to learn.
It's working together, giving your best,
And gaining friends in return.
lt's the pep of the town, the fun of sports
And building a level head,
A spirit that's part of a person,s life.
That lives on in the days ahead."
Then wisely the passer-by replied,
"From what you've said I take it
That the answer depends upon each one,
A high school is what you make it."
VV ell might we heed that conversation,
'Tis true of schools and lives.
The things one reaps depend upon
The things toward which he strives.
Yes, every one in high school
Can build his school or break it.
Letls work together to build the best,
For a high school is what you make it!

CHEERLEADERS YEA, COACH!
From left to right: Gretchen johnson, Phyllis Decker, Donna Price, Elaine Vanl-lyftc. Yea Uhfig,
Yea, yea, Coach Ehrigl
Mr. llhrig, our coach, has been with us for two and a half years, joining
us in the middle of the basketball season of 1946. Wfe have enjoyed much
success during the years he has been with us, but this was the best. He has
been our coach in football, track, basketball, and has taught boys' physical
education. All of the boys that have played under him think he is all right.
They like him and play very hard for him. Under his careful guidance the
boys have really tried to win and bring home trophies for him and the
school. I-le graduated from LaSalle-Peru high school in the year 1931,
where he earned letters in football, track and basketball. After graduating
from high school he went to Marquette College. He was the starting center
in basketball, a position at which he starred for two years. Mr. Ehrig is
kept very busy being coach and teaching classes of physical education, al-
gebra, and geometry. Under him the won and lost column shows that we
have won several more games than we have lost in his two and one-half
years with us. This year we had a very successful season, having beaten
our bitter but friendly rivals on occasions in football, basketball and track.
lVe are happy to note that this yearbook is dedicated to him.

The Annawan High School Braves had a
very successful season in '47. The Braves
started off with a slow start by losing their
first two games by a close margin, Which, with
a little luck, could have been decided in our
favor. After this the team began to settle down
by swamping Tampico, then going on to beat
Atkinson, which everybody considered the
best game of the year. The boys were really
out after this game, not only because it was
Atkinson but because it was Coach Ehrig's
birthday. CA pretty nice birthday present,
The Braves finished their season by playing
a thrilling game with Prophetstown, which
was a nip and tuck ball game into the fourth
quarter when the Braves went on a touch-
down splurge, winning 26-18.

All of the- moral values, and desirable character
traits that are inherent in athletic contests may well
be grouped under the heading, "Athlete's Codefl
The Athlete's Code endeavors to make all athletes
try to live clean, be clean, and act natural. A good
athlete will not smoke or do anything to hinder his
athletic ability. During an athletic contest a player
should be clean in his manner of play. On the floor
he should also be clean in his maner of speech.
The library at our high school is one of
the favorite places of the students. Some
of the things found in the library are
books, both fiction and reference, current
magazines, and the daily newspaper. It is
each student's privilege to use the library
for necessary school work as well as for
his own enjoyment. Mrs. Browning is in
charge of the library and each period stu-
dent librarians are on hand to help other
students find the desired books and keep
the library in a neat order.
Study Hall is a room where every one
goes to study when they are not in classes.
There are eighty-five seats, and our libra-
ry is located at the front of the room. We
have a wide variety of books and reading
matter. Our seating arrangement is very
simple. The seniors sit in the row next to
the windows, next is the juniors, then
sophomores, and last but not least the

With the money earned, Gretchen John-
son and Lucille Jacobs are going to attend
G.A.A. camp at East Bay in June.
The G.A.A. held a Christmas party for
its members December 1.
The saxophone quartet consisted of Bob
Nowers, baritone sax: Patty Thornbrugh
tenor sax: Dwaine Dynes, E flat alto sax
and Phyllis Decker, first E flat alto sax.
Phyllis Decker was the only remaining
player from last year's quartet, the other
three started this year.
Because of Mr. Vitto's excellent instruc-
tion, the quartet was very successful. This
year it won first place in the district, and
also first in the state music contest.
This photograph of the band was taken
of the gymnasium. It
from the balcony
shows the band in action. The band went
to Moline this year and ranked second di-
vision. The annual spring concert was a
huge success. Mr. Vitto is very sorry to
lose eight band members this year. but he
is filling their places with students who
will carry on extremely well. We are sure
that the seniors will miss playing in the
band after they have graduated.
The annual formal Valentine dance was
held in the high school gymnasium Feb-
ruary 14. This event was sponsored by the
The gymnasium was decorated beauti-
fully by the Student Council members,
with a red and white false ceiilng. Red
and white streamers were around the sides
of the gym. Then card tables were placed
around the dance floor, decorated with
Valentine table-cloths. Waitresses brought
refreshments of sandwiches, ice cream and
coke. Music for this gala affair was fur-
nished by "Doc" Hunt's orchestra.

November 14 under the direction of Mr. Osborn
The entire play takes place in Fairview, at the Blaine
Patty Blaine, the tattletale, has many great ambitions.
I-ler greatest wish is that she will be a famous author.
She has written a story entitled "Her Secret Heart,"
which she hopes Paul Cummings will publish in his
paper. Ida May, her girl friend, takes the story to the
paper for her so that no one will guess her identity. The
next day Patty is very happy until she finds that she
has sent her diary instead of the story. In her dairy she
has not only written her own opinions on certain sub-
jects and people, but her family's also, and, of course,
the Whole town is very much insulted. Since Patty has
signed the name of Ermintrude de Lacey no one knows
the identity of the writer, everyone is wondering who
she is and threatening her life. In the end the town
realizes that everything said was true and decides to im-
prove themselves and the school.

The entire action of the play takes place in the dining
room of the Kanna .Iamma Sorority house just off the
campus of a co-ed college in Beverly, California.
Imagine a girls' sorority house on the campus of a
well known university. It is Saturday night and the
girls are ready to go out for the evening. Some are
wishing that they could stay in when suddenly one of
the girls is taken ill. A doctor is called in who says that
it is chicken pox and quarantines the house for two
weeks! VVhen one knows that several of the boys who
have been working the house are quarantined also, one
can readily visualize the many screamingly funny com-
plications and mix-ups that follow.
ln "Campus Quarantine," the author has taken an in-
cident that really happened and has woven a play that
is so packed with funny lines, humorous situations and
witty dialogue, that an audience never experiences a
