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.

7441 annual 6060i
With the closing of another school year La Retama has passed another milestone. lt has been
no easy task to uphold the traditions of the past and attain the standards which in the last twelve
consecutive years have placed our annual in the All-American or Superior ranks by the rating
of the National Scholastic Press Association. ln spite of the fact that our faithful friend and ad--
visor, Miss Olga Scholz, could not help us with this tremendous undertaking, we met our tasks with
courage, knowing that our new advisor, Miss Betty leanne Dobbins, had had much experience.
The staff chose as its theme, "Friendship," which is so needed with the world in a turmoil as
it is at the present time. Having chosen our theme, we immediately began taking class pictures.
ln October, we began our successful sales campaign owing much of our success to Eleanor
Thoma, who sold l26 annuals, breaking all previous records, and to Martin Iones, who sold 83
annuals. The staff would like to express our appreciation to our many friends in the Student
Council and the Debate Class who aided in this campaign.
In March the annual began to take shape as we began mounting the proofs of the lay-outs
that Alice Neal, Bertha Grundrnann, Grace Ann McCreless and others had devoted hours to plan-
ning and constructing. The copy was typed in the dummy by our untiring and dependable typists,
Shirley Maierhofer and Lois Littleton, aided by Frances Budge and Iohanna Huey. During our
