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-
"Pass that Peace Pipe."

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?"

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
"Add a touch of rouge."

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
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
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
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-
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.
