Frisco Frolics In Front HHand me another paintbruslf'--"Now where am I going to find a property like thatll'-'4Give that line once more" all are cries heard in the auditorium or the many rehearsal rooms after school. The people quoted above are working on an important jobg they're practicing for the biggest show held in school-The Deviltries. Fancy F oolwork. But, before you can have any rehearsals there has to be a scriptg before you can build scenery there have to be plans. Miss Frances Giffin, director of the DeViltries, chose a Council Steering Committee to perform the duties of making these plans and shaping a show. Each member of this committee, in turn, was made chairman of a smaller com- mittee. "Pass that Peace Pipe." Dick Hehl. Back row: Virginia Welsh, Sue Zbiera- jewski, Connie Cromwell, Ruth Chandler, ,loan Fer- rall, Joan Skurzyn. After the tryouts were held the script committee wrote the show and rehearsals be- gan. Every night after school, Saturdays, and some evenings were given over to prac- tice and work. Finally the big night comes! The house lights dim, and the roll of the drum brings the audience to their feet for the playing of the National Anthem. "Your order, sir?" Left to Right: Bill Lunbeck, Ed Binkleman, Pat Liui, .loan Michelson, ,loan Billet, Nancy Campbell. When the piece is over and the people take their seats, the orchestra swings into the theme 'LSan Francisco Here We Come", the curtains open, the Frisco Frolics are on! There's no turning back now. An audience has come to the 15th edition of the DeVil- tries. The actors., actresses begin the dia- logue, the talent performs, the stage crew lis- tens for comments in the earphones, the stu- dent directors stand back stage and bite their nails. "Add a touch of rouge." Left to Right: Dorothy Fash, Richard Boell, Alton LeBeau, Nancy Anderson.

Guided By The Lamp Of Knowledge To obtain further benefits from engineering and technical subjects is the chief aim of the En- gineers' Club, whose official name is the Engin- eering Society of DeVilhiss High School. Any stu- dent taking mathematics. science. or industrial arts, and who maintains a passing grade in all sub- jects is eligible to become a member ofthe club. This year's Engineering Club was quite ae- tive in an attempt to maintain the standard set by its predecessor. Our major activity was tour- ing Toledo industries. Among the companies who were kind enough to allow us to tour their plants were the Ohio Bell Telephone Company, Swartz- baugh Manufacturing Company. Toledo Edison Companyis Acme Station. Superior Spinning and Stamping Company, and Wiflys Motors Incorpor- ated. The members of the club also attended sev- eral engineering lectures sponsored by the Toledo Technical Council at the University of Toledo. One of the accomplishments which we are proud of is a file of catalogues from technical col- leges. These were gathered to help the future en- gineers to plan their high school and college cours- es intelligently. It is our hope that we. and future clubs, may gather a complete record of every tech- nical and engineering school in the United States. Our meetings were held on the first and third Tuesdays of every month. The President and the executive committee. which is made up of the six have the authority to call additional officers. meetings if the need should arise. Leslie Noaker led the proceedings at all meetings and trips. But if he were absent. ,lohn Matthews. Vice-President. took over his job. Bud Smith. our Secretary. was recognized as the Clulfs official pen-pusher. when financial matters were involved, Fred Siebert. Treasurer. would have to be found and forced to release the purse strings. Ray Jackson. the ln- etr-Club Council Representative, amused himself by getting up before the members and telling them what happened at the last Council meeting. Fred Bailey. whose title was Publicity Manager. took care of all the Clulfs official publicity releases. But the one man we really owe our thanks to is Mr. R. 0. Merrill. for he gave us his time. assis- tance. and advice in his capacity of adviser to the club. Wie are all very grateful for the many infor- mative tours that tl1e industries of Toledo gave us, and we hope that all future members of the club will be able to have as many interesting and en- joyable tours as we have had.

of The Footlights For four nights the same procedure and for four nights the same fears and differ- ent mishaps. For four nights we sense the smell of greasepaint and the new feeling of the costumes, the bright lights, laughter,'and applause. That's our goal-to make the au- dience laugh, to make the audience appre- ciate the talent-to entertain. For four nights we have a taste of show business. "Waiting for the train to come in." Left to Right: Lou Davis, Pat Livi, John Matthews, Judith Price, Shirley Keats. As each act is over we breathe a sigh of relief and prepare to hold our breath for the next. But the performance always goes over and we're well repaid in compliments for the many afternoons, Saturdays, and even nights that we,ve given up for rehearsing. As the curtains close on the last act and the cast crowds onto the stage you get a lump in your throat. You're happy and still sad that it's over. Diane really sends them! And then the traditional song "You Will Remember DeVilbiss,' sends shivers up and down your spine and you know that you'll always remember this momentearm in arm with the other cast members, swing- ing and swaying to the rhythm of the song, the spot lights playing and dancing like bright sunbeams up and down the linesg yes, you'll always remember Devilbiss and you'll never forget the DeViltries. "Dirty old K.P." Left to Right: Bill Humphrey, Deane Osborne, Al- ton LeBeau. The DeViltries could not have gone so smoothly nor would it have been as much fun if it weren't for the Steering Committee. Through their work, they and the students feel and know that the DeViltries is truly a DeVilbiss student production. Council Steering Committee and Student Directors Row 1: Bob Terry.
