Wednesday, married by September lst." This is the rather startling news to the two young people concerned and they make plans to escape each other. There is to be a dance in honor of Lucile and her friends that night, at the Perkins' home. Arthur schemes that Jack, Ted and Dick pose as Arthur Watson, while Lucile plans that Jane, Marie, and Mabel pose as Lucile. The girls are all dressed alike and the boys mistake the three girls each for Lucile. After the dance begins Lucile changes her dress, which eliminates her from the plot altogether and makes the party seem very stupid to her. At last fate seems to be with the clever hostess, when it is proposed to dance on the lawn. All couples seperate and the men hide. When the signal is given, the girls hunt, but Lucile finds just Martin Henry-that's all. In the second act Lucile has an interview with Mary who is the cook at the Perkins' and Martin Henry's aunt. Lucile is putting into practice her knowledge of Domestic Science and Mary irons while they talk. Lucile has an idea that her aunt intends to take her to Europe, which she does not wish, since she wants to teach Domestic science. Mary understands the state of affairs into which this clever hostess is plunged so she decides to straighten affairs out, by having Lucile and Arthur meet in disguise. While Lucile is still around the kitchen, Arthur comes over in his working clothes, to bring some lettuce. She mistakes him for a country boy, and he mistakes her for a new maid at the Perkins. Mary and Lucile both leave the kit- chen at the same time. While they are gone some gypsies steal the freshly ironed dresses on the clothes line. When the girls come for their dresses they can't find them. Martin Henry appears in some what of a hurry with the startling news that the gypsies had also stolen some of his chickens. Marie and Arthur meet accidently alone in the back yard. Marie tells what has happened, but Arthur does not seem so much concerned as she thinks he should so after some very sarcastic remarks, Marie leaves. Lucile comes across Arthur, after his interview with Marie, and persuades him to go after the gypsies. Before leaving, Arthur sends a message to Marie by Lucile, to meet him in the garden. After Arthur leaves, J ack comes across the supposed new maid, and also sends a message to Lucile. In the middle of this conversation Dick rushes in with the startling news that Ted has the mumps. Ted, seeing Lucile, also sends a message to the supposed Lucile. Lucile interviews her aunt concerning her plans for the next September. Without waiting to understand them, Miss Abigail consents and leaves. Arthur returns with the gypsies and the girls clothes are secured. Lucile makes a bargain with the gyp- sies to exchange clothes with her. The crowd at the bazaar stroll to this part of the lawn where a little dance is given by the girls Jane, Mabel, Miss Perkins and Mrs. Watson are among the number. Lucile, disguised as a gypsy fools the rest of the party. Arthur guesses that she is in disguiseg she returns the note he dropped, having secured it from the gypsies, which thing puzzles him very much. Martin Henry pounces upon Lucile for a gypsy, but recoils with a shock when she reveals her identity. In the third act the boys are making sport of Ted, who has the mumps when Ted ap- pears. All leave him except Martin. Miss Perkins and Mable come upon Ted and Martin and Miss Perkins discloses Ted's identity to Mabel who thought he wasa Mr. Green. Mabel LXII

THE DRAMATIC CLUB When the noble Work of publishing an annual was brought to our discussion, the first objection to such an enterprise, was the need of necessary funds. All heads were put to- gether to figure out what amount was necessary, and where that amount could be obtained. Twenty-six seniors came to the rescue of the editorial staff. Thirteen boys and thir- teen girls met one afternoon, when school was over, to organize a dramatic club. They elected for their President, Sallie Gilmer Jones: Vice-President, Marie Stephens: Secretary, Beatrice Crouch: Treasurer, R. Glen Muse: Business Manager, Everett Marshg and stage director, Marvin York. After the organization had been completed, plans were laid out for the year. I should say plan, as only one was made, since it was near the close of school before steps were taken to form such a club. Miss Vera Idol was then asked to aid in the undertaking and she very kindly consented to drill into stupid heads, tragic lines, with deep felt emotions, and mirthful phrases, ac- companied by "stage" laughs. One of the High School teachers, Miss Walker very kindly offered her help and suggestions, which were received and greatly appreciated. The play was selected after much consultation on the part of the committee, concern- ing the material in this club. "Engaged by Wednesday" was decided upon and the club entered into its work with vigor and interest which brooded success. As the name signifies the plot of the play, is to "get engaged by Wednesday." Per- haps it would be best to give a list of the characters and a synopsis of the play.

Now the Perkin's and the Watson's homes join each other. Miss Abigail has long decided that Lucile, and Arthur Watson the only son of her gentle neighbor, shall marry, take over the two farms and then she and Mrs. Watson would travel. Since Lucile comes home that night she says "Engaged by LXI

is puzzled and confides in Jane. They dispute the identity of Jack and Dick. To settle the controversy they consult Martin, but are more puzzled than ever. Jack and Dick come upon the scene and the true names of all four are found and con- sequently they separate mad. During the fuss the "new maid" CLucileJ proves to be Lucile Perkins. The boys fully disgusted plan revenge on Arthur. Every one they see they tell that Arthur is going to elope that night at ten o'clock. The news is spread and a large crowd hides behind the stone wall to watch. Martin Henry is pressed in to service and told to hurry with suit cases and the stepladders. Arthur appears and the revengers explain that Martin Henry elopes that night. So he is set to work with the rest. Every one is confus- ed- Amid the confusion Mrs. Watson consults Arthur about Lucile. He expresses a very bad opinien of Lucile and confesses that the only person he likes is Miss Abigail's new maid. Jack comforts Mrs. Watson and she forgets her son's startling words. Miss Perkins comes upon the scene and learns the cause which centers around Martin. Lucile's plan to teach Domestic Science is also told to her. Arthur comes across Miss Abi- gail who is growing more angry each minute, with a suit case. She demands an explana- tion, and also informs him of Marie's identity. Marie who is angry with Arthur, tells of his intended elopement. Miss Perkins is completely over come, also is Arthur Arthur makes a clean sweep of it and confesses his fondness for the "new maid." The "new maid's" identity is revealed and Arthur makes a rush to find her. Martin Henry's advice that Jack and Dick come up with Jane and Mabel is accepted. Arthur and Lucile finally recognize each other and are trying to explain matters, when all of the characters arrive upon the scene. All matters are straightened out except the "En- gaged by Wednesday" part. Miss Perkins is certainly disgusted when Arthur announces that he and Lucile have two hours of grace still. They leave the crowd to get "engaged by Wednesday. " Girl's Tennis Club LXIII
