DRAMATICS CLASS The first semester of Dramatics is devoted chiefly to the study of drama from a practical standpoint. The work includes craft work and the first essentials of practical play production. - Of course, the outstanding event of the first semester is the annual play. This year the Dramatics Class presented the play, "Meet the Duchess," a comedy in three acts consisting of all the elements of dialect, of impersonations, and even a touch of tragedy, that make up a successful play. The plot was a very modern version of the Movie Cycle, centeri around the boarding house of Mrs. Perkins, played by Henrietta Schindler. All the characters,nEJr example: joy janu- ary, a Broadway chorus girl, played by Pauline Bubanovichg a converted professor portrayed effec- tively by Louis Harrisg a robust tragedian played by Graham Handy, a colored maid, by Doris Pul- leng and a former star of the stage, by Bette Collins, are all concerned in one way or another with the screen in Hollywood. Kate Calderwood and Mildred State portrayed realistically the situation of an ambitious Mother and Child prodigy of the Shirley Temple age. There was a clever impersona- tion of the Movie producer, Samuel Goldwyn, portrayed by Michell Rose. The star of the play, Eloise Cunningham, played the role of a newcomer to Hollywood, assisted by Joe Brezina, playing the part of Ronnie Ward, a scenario writer. During the rehearsing and production of the play, the students obtained much practical knowledge of stage settings and back stage essentials such as, lighting effects, scenery painting, and the general necessities. The duties of the prompter, property manager, house manager, advertising manager, and director were touched upon also. The second semester is devoted to Dramatics from the standpoint of literature. The history of drama, emphasizing the different periods from the early Greek and Roman drama, through the Middle Ages to the great Renaissance of the Elizabethan or Shakespearean period including some Modern drama, is carefully studied in regard to its relation to religion. Many of the outstanding plays of these diverse periods are read and discussed in class. , IANE ADDAMS CI-1-APTER NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY Benton Harbor High School has received its charter for a chapter in the National Honor Society for Secondary Schools. The National Honor Society is a National organization which was founded in 1922 for the purpose of creating an enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership, and to develop character in the students of American Secondary Schools. A committee of students and faculty members wrote and submitted to the National head- quarters a constitution for the local chapter. This has been approved and the local chapter is known as the jane Addams Chapter of the National Honor Society. Students are eligible for membership in this Society who have an average grade of B or better for their high school careers and have attended the Benton Harbor High School for at least one year. The members are chosen from this grou , the final selection being made on the basis of service, leadership, and character. Five per cent of the 11A class may be chosen during the sixth semester, ten per cent of the 12B class the seventh semester, and a total of not more than fifteen per cent of the graduating class may be chosen as members. After being chosen, members are re- quired to maintain scholarship average until graduation and then become graduate members for life. It is hoped that the graduate members keep ever before them the ideal of helping to raise the scholarship of Benton Harbor High School. The faculty committee is now at work on the selection of the first group of seniors. This list had not been made public when the Greybric went to press.
