Tradition, inspiration, aspiration, and innovation play a great role in the dramatic events of Bracken-
ridge High School. Tradition set the stage for "The Purple Parade," that snappy show of three one-act plays
which always starts off our dramatic season with a bang. "The Professor Boarsu opened the show, in which
the actors were Albert Allee, Iacquelyn Alford, Violet Russell, Anne Hugmann, and Peggy lane Carver.
A lively little comedy entitled "Cleaned and Pressed" starred our Brackenridge High School Henry
Aldrich, Alphonse Huffaker. Other actors in the cast were Edith Frazer, Paul Graham, Doris Fehrmann, Gloria
Maye Pugh, and Ioy Allen. Q
The third play-"Star Struck" gave a glimpse of Hollywood and the dizzy way it lives. The actors were
Mary Louise Simmons, Betty Belle Iohnson, Lou Sue Cornibe, Dorothy Mosely, Mary Ruth Askin, Frances
Lear, lane Baker, lessie Harper and Evelyn Catan.
Yes, "The Purple Parade" was a bang in more ways than one. Miss Dickey, our director, was accident-
ally knocked down on the stage at the matinee, and suffered a broken hip. "The show must go on," so Miss
Dickey came back to the night performance and saw the show through. After a three months' stay in the
Santa Bosa Hospital, Miss Dickey came back on February 2.
The spring term teemed with all types of shows. Two matinee performances were given by the Dramatics
The following actors, who were contesting for the lntrarnural Silver UB" did a fine piece of work: Frances
Bailey, Mary Etta Campbell, Charlene DeViney, Mary lane Elley, Betty Io Elms, lack Fraser, Robert Geisler,

The Senior Play, "Once and For All" Was an innovation for Brackenridge. An elaborate stage set de-
picting a dead-end street in a large city furnished background for a good play.
Scenes for "Once and For All" were laid in an apartment courtyard of a big city where several families
were brought together in friendship while they shared the fears and hopes, the joys and sorrows of one an-
other. The mixture ot crime, sorrow, love, and comedy kept constant excitement in the audience.
The cast was composed of the best dramatics students, including George Harcourt, Doris Fehrmann,
Frank Scott, Charles Carolus, lohnny Reininger, Lou Sue Cornibe, and Frances Lear. Also Mary Louise Sim-
mons, Warren Lustre, Wendell Phillips, Beatrice Luna, Richard Smith, Rachel Fahrenthold, Violet Russell,
Kathleen Edwards, Bobbye Sue lackson, lacqueline Alford, lay Alkire, Celia Ellis, Betty Ann Lockhart, Wesley
Walker, Rudy Flores, and Elmo Ferguson.
So natural was the acting that students thought nothing at all of Frank Scott hugging his mother lLou
Sue Cornibel, but how they Ah'd and Oh'd when he kissed Frances Lear, and, of course, the audience
thought George Harcourt and Doris Fehrmann were hardest to beat. Another thrill was the fight between
lay Alkire and Warren Lustre, when lay knocked Warren head over heels onto the floor. This was as un-
expected to the cast as it was to the audience.
