It was a tragic ending: yet her schoolmates made this town proud. During that long wait when doctors do everything possible and a minute stretches into an hour, those young friends of Ar- leta called on the greatest Doctor to lend His hand. Nearly every hour little groups of classmates would leave their waiting place and go to the hospital chapel. There they would pray for their frlend's recovery. These young people displayed the same faith that often ls associated only with adults It was refreshing to know too that no one could have been more serious than these youngsters Ordmarlly there is galety when young folks gather This was not the case at the hospital Somehow these young friends understood the clr cumstances Even nurses whose time ls precious on occasions like this and who must make every step count noticed this group of younglsters Never were they in the way At a l times their actions were perfect This ls the story of young people in a different light. Arleta never knew about her friends on that last night. Few persons dld. It was a sad and shocking close to a young life .

In "Ten Little Indians" Miss Christie has a wonderful idea for mystery. The story tells of how ten people, all unknown to each other, arrive as guests for the week-end on a well- appointed, but isolated island off the shore of England. Each has come ln the hope of finding pleasure or gain, though not quite sure who is his host. Once there, and unable to escape to the mainland, each finds that some past crime is now being held against mm or ner, and that an unknown and mysterious avenger will exact pay- ment. As one after another of the china "ten little indians" vanishes from the mantlepiece, one of the guests pays the death penalty. This is how it looked at dress rehearsal. Pictured at lower right is the cast and production staff enjoying a snack. CAST OF CHARACTERS Rodgers ................. Paul Waltrip Mrs. Rodgers ....... Barbara Pickering Fred Narcott .............

The teams spend many long hours of practice to become one body against another in a game.
