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

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.

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
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. "
