JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY
We began our junior year with a purpose: to give the seniors a successful prom. For
this purpose, we held various dances and other moneyfmaking ventures. Under the following
class ofhcers we think that our purpose has been achieved: President jean Holland, Vice'
President Opal Disen, Secretary Jeanne Muller, and Treasurer Merrill Grubbs.
Uncle Sam won over two of our members-Edward Gomolchak to the U. S. Coast Guard
and Melvin Waldo to the Seabees. Among the other members whom we lost were: Nancy
Turner, Harold Donor, Virginia Farnham, and jacob Isaac, while we greeted Eunice Fails,
Betty Saint, and Ross Schluraff, at the beginning of the year.
We thank Mr. Amendola for his many suggestions and his help in making our junior
year a successful one.
As this year is coming to a close, we are looking forward to our senior year as being
more joyous, more cheerful, more successful, and financially the best.

SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY
Each year as one grows older, he finds more new experiences. This is exactly how, I hef
lieve, each sophomore in the class feels this year. We were no longer classed as Hgreenf
horns", hut were a part of the "upperclassmen". Miss Gloria Santomenna hegan the year as
our advisor, however, at semester time, Miss Elizaheth Summerville took her place. The class
has missed jean Bowen, Sarah Kennelly, and Norman Dill who have all left our class. The
climax of our year's activities was a hayfride at the White Swan Farms. The evening was
spent in games and dancing, after which refreshments were served. Miss Britton and Miss
Schroyer were our chaperones.
The oflicers who guided us this year were: Gloria Lucas, President: Sam Graff, Vice'
President: Mary Cochran, Secretary: and Owen Waxham, Treasurer,
As we close this school year, we are looking forward to our junior year as one full of
more new experiences and successes.

FRESHMEN CLASS HISTORY
On Scptemher lst, forty enthusiastic freshmen entered the halls of Fairview High School,
excited and yet a hit timid ahout starting their first year as high school students. Although
we came from various grade schools, we soon hccanie acquainted and, as our first duty as fresh'
men, elected the following class officers: Ore Weislogel, President, Richard Walker, Vice'
President, Miriam Wihtcuii, Secretaryg and Dorothy Dill, Treasurer.
After several "snappy" dehates, we chose the American Beauty Rose as our flower,
aquafhlue and heige, our colors, and as our motto--"We have crossed the hayfthc ocean
lies hefore us".
In the latter part of Septemher, we officially hecame a part of F. H. S, as the sophomores
honored us with a wellfrememhered Hpartym. In Novemher we returned their friendliness
hy giving them a party, hut of a very different nature.
As our freshman year now comes to a close, we are looking forward to hrighter and
happier days as sophomores.

With the task of living up to the brilliant championship record of previous Tiger teams,
the 1942 edition of Fairview's football machine began its first practice on a sunny August
25th afternoon under the direction of another new coach, Mr. Joseph R. Amendola. In an
effort to master yet another system, practice settled down in earnest. With the aid of nine
returning lettermen, other experienced members, and a small host of promising newcomers,
the Tigers set out in earnest to turn out another well-oiled combine.
judging by the results of the first game, Fairview awoke to the realization that another
hardffighting team was in the ofiing, but after the next tussle, wondered if it were the "dead
locked wonders". In answer to such criticism, Fairview rose to the heights of old and bat'
tered their first league opponents into submission to the tune of 31f0. After finding them'
selves, the Tigers then proceeded to roll over the remaining league rivals. But "what goes
up must come down", and so came true the timefworn adage when Fairview bowed to the
champions of the Class A League, Girard, but only after a bitter and courageous uphill fight.
But we had carried on the tradition of the Fighting Tigers the Championship was ours
The schedule and a brief summary of the games follow:
Game Opponents F. H. S.
Sept. 5 - Millcreek O O
" 19 - East Reserves O 0
" 26 - Edinboro O 31
Oct. 10 - Cambridge Springs 0 48
" 23 - Waterford O 63
" 30 -- Strong Vincent Reserves O O
Nov. 7 - Girard 13 6
Totals: ...... 13 148
The preceding record vividly displays Fairview's great defensive power throughout the
whole season, and its breaking offensive force after mastering its newlyfacquired system.
The first game of the season found the Red and Black tangling with a highlyftouted
Millcreek Hi, last season's Class A champs, and coming off with a brilliant Of0 deadlock in a
hardffought battle which found a sturdy Fairview defense pitted against a continuously'
stalled Millcreek offense.
The second game of the season found Fairview in a nonfleague contest with the East
High Reserves who checked the Tigers' offense on various occasions, creating another score'
less tie. Though this was disappointing to many, the boys had gained valuable experience and
awaited only a striking chance.
And it came! Fairview, versus their first league opponents, the Edinboro Turtles, broke
the ice and romped time after time over the Turtle goal line to a 31fO victory. In the first
half Baskin and Busi accounted for a touchdown each, via short line plunges through huge
gaps in Edinboro's forward wall made by Fairview's fighting linemen. In the second half we
accounted for three more scores on passes from Baskin to Ed Getz. This game showed per-
fect cooperation among all the boys and clearly pointed out that they had mastered the func-
tions of the Amendola system.
Fairview took on another helpless league opponent the following week as it shellacked
the Spa of Cambridge 48-O. Bob Busi had his field day, scoring three touchdowns on long,
deceptive runs. Leo Getz, Bob Levy, and jim Ritchie also tallied on long scampers while
still another score came on a Baskin to Getz aerial.
It's another championship as the boys of F. H. S. down Waterford 63'0. Baskin and
Levy scored on a trio of touchdowns. The boys in the forward wall, led by Gidner, Graff,
and East, paved a fourflane highway to touchdown town for anyone who could hold an
oblong sphere known as a football. This was the game for the reserves as they took over in
the second half and kept things rolling.
The boys took Mr. Amendola to heart when he told them not to show anything at the
Vincent Reserve Game as the Girard coach was present as referee. The result of such obed'
ience resulted in another OfO tie.
Nov. 7th! The day we had long awaited had now arrived and with it came the annual
FairviewfGirard struggle. We were all rudely shocked as Bob Davern of the Yellowjackets
ran by an uncertain end and half-back and raced down the sidelines for a 73 yard touchdown,
only one minute after play had begun. Early in the second period this action reoccurred,
but this time for a distance of only 7 yards to make a 13f0 score in favor of our rivals. But
that was the end for them. The Tigers began their prowl at this moment and until the final
whistle blew never admitted defeat to the Class A champs and then a defeat by only a few
It was a very successful season and our hats are off to Coach Amendola for his fine job
of coaching and to all our loyal followers.

This is a war year! Accordingly, everything took on a different aspect, including our
haskcthall season. To conform with government request, the Erie County League was formed
into four separate groups of four teams apiece. Fairview found itself in a tough Section l
with Millcreek, West Springfield, and Girard as their opponents. We played each of these
teams four times, and though the season was not too successful in the won and lost column,
the hoys had a lot of fun and appreciated heing ahle to play interfscholastic haskethall in this
Fairview started its season with the return of hut three lettermen and a scarcity of ref
serves. Much credit must he given Mr. Amendola for his untiring efforts in aiding the hoys and
giving so much of his time in what others thought was a lost cause, hut he developed a spirit of
cooperation and fire that will stay with the hoys under his guidance. With a little more
height, and the hope that there will he haskethall again next year, Fairview should come through
with its tirst championship since it inaugurated this sport.
This year's lettermen were: Seymour Baskin and Mert Hinkle, the only graduating
members, and Bill Walker, Don McCray, Ben Levy, Don Buseck, Ray Waldo, and Ore
Weisliugel. Much credit also to other memhers as: Boh Levy, Don Miller, Norman Horowitz,
Mgr. letterman Del Cochran, and other managers, Dick Walker and Ed Yarrington.

BOYS' INTRA-MURAL BASKETBALL
The annual boys' intrafmural basketball season was more than exciting this year. The
season reached a point of high intensity and rivalry at the end when the seniors, juniors,
and sophomores, ended in a threefway tie for the championship. This came about when
the three involved teams had two victories and one loss apiece, while the freshman team lost
all encounters. A playfoif was agreed upon in which the juniors were pitted against the
sophomores, as the seniors drew a bye. The sophomores came through victoriously to enter
the finals against the senior team. In this game, the sophomores were also triumphant and
marched off with a wellfdeserved championship for the 194243 intrafmural basketball
GIRLS' INTRA-MURAL BASKETBALL
For the past few years, interfclass basketball has been entirely forgotten by the girls.
This year however, due to gas rationing, the schools were divided into four leagues rather
than two. This put us in a league with Millcreek, Girard, and Springfield. The only school
here which had a girls team was Girard, so it was decided that there would be only intra'
mural games between the four classes of our school
The first game saw the junior class evenly matched against the senior class. After the
battle, the juniors were victorious, 12fl0. The second game proved that the freshmen had a
better team than the sophomores as the former won, 194.
Since the juniors and the freshmen had been the winners of the two previous games, they
were to battle it out for the championship. On Jan. 29, the game was played with both teams
struggling to defend their classes. The juniors collected twelve points in the first half and
were successful in making three more baskets in the second half, while the freshmen could
only manage to garner a total of ten points in all. Thus, the juniors became the champions of
the 194243 girls' intrafmural league.

Turn hack the hands of time to the year 1933. Now start reminiscing and see what
results you find in the music department. Of course you are correct there was only the
mixed chorus. Now turn your thoughts to the present year and see the remarkahle progress
that has taken place in a few short years.
The Hrst organization to get underway was the orchestra. Under the direction of Mr.
Lawrence, this group has played at the Literary Contests, the Christmas program, the annual
Spring Festival, and is now practicing for the concert which will he presented in the spring.
The hand the second oldest of the musical organizations-has made splendid progress
and now is looking forward to the spring concert.
Did you attend any of the home foothall games this season? If you did you saw the
newest addition to the music department-the Drum and Bugle Corps. Last year it was
composed of six drummersg this year. it was composed of six hugles and a larger numher of
drummers. This group has proved its ahility, and it has added greatly to the spirit and color
of Fairview Hi.

Bringing back the beauty and allurement of the old South for one evening, "An Old
Kentucky Carden" was presented by the musical department on Tuesday, December 22nd,
under the combined direction of Miss Gloria Santomenna and Mr. Earl Lawrence.
The story takes place in the garden of Col. Staunton's home in Kentucky. His niece,
Jeanie fJean Hollandj and his nephew Phillip, CMerrill Crubbsj live with the Colonel fFred
WllS4DI1J, and, on this particular day, Jeanie is celebrating her birthday, The Colonel has
planned a surprise party in Jeanie's honor and the party is made more thrilling when Stephen
Foster lJim Robinsonj visits the neighborhood and calls on the Colonel. Complications set
in when the Col. disapprovcs of Jeanie's friendship with Richard Morgan CMerten Hinklej
and orders him to leave his house in the morning, Unknown to the Col., Phillip is in Hnanf
cial trouble and when Joe Buzzard fBill Vxfalkerj comes and demands immediate payment,
Richard comes to Phillip's aid and lends him the money. Things reach a higher peak of excitef
ment when Jeanie receives a family heirloom as a birthday gift and when a Hindu magician
fSeymour Baskinj notices the jewel and disappears with it. The Col. then learns about the debt
which has been paid by Richard, and he gives his approval of Jeanie's suitor when Richard ref
turns with the stolen jewel. There is high comedy in the sudden attachment of Widmmw Hannah
QThelma Taylorj, who has already buried three husbands, and Henry Blow QDon McCrayJ, a
gold rusher. A joyous finale is reached when Phillip marries Joy QMary Hartj and Richard and
Jeanie are busy making plans of their own! Our thanks to our directors and pianist, Elma
Hotchkiss, for their patience and support in putting over a great financial and dramatic success.
MUSIC AND DRAMA FESTIVAL
The fifth annual Music Ei Drama Festival was presented on March 19, under the direcf
tion of Miss Elizabeth Summerville and Mr. Earl Lawrence. This program consisted of three
divisions: the instrumental, the vocal, and the dramatic. The first play, "Sadie Socks the
Saboteursn, relates the speedy action of Sadie's getting the sheriff in superfquick time while
apprehending two saboteurs. The second play, "Swept Clean Off Her Feet", relates the
attempt of a salesman to become acquainted with a girl, who later proved to be the boss's
daughter. Participants in the dramatic section were: Monta Vitter, Jane Cooper, Jean
Farnham, Betty Miller, Marion Weigel, Ben Levy, james Tingley, Don McCray, Betty Saint,
Merrill Grubbs, Bill Walker, Eunice Fails, and Jeanne Muller.
The orchestra played "The War March of the Priests", "Chanson sans Paroles", and
"Why Don't You Fall In Love With Me".
The double glee club rendered the "Alma Mater", "Dear Land of Home", "Deep River",
"Country Garden", and "Bells of St. Marys", being followed by a selection from the boy's
glee club, "Don't You Hear Me Callin', Lady Lou", and the girl's chorus singing, "Wood-
The finale of the evening was fittingly administered by the combined glee clubs singing
the "Star Spangled Banner".
This performance was probably the most spectacular event for the school this year.
Thru the cooperation of Mr. Lawrence, robes were purchased for the glee club and this
festival was the "outcoming" for these beautiful robes. They not only add color to the glee
club, but they produce a beautiful stage for the entire school.
As sure as September marks the beginning of school, we find October ushering in the
school play. Laughs, action, and romance! All this and more was found in this threefact
comedy, "Correspondence Courtship" which was presented on October 14th, under the di'
rection of Miss Clive J. Schroyer.
"Correspondence Courtship" tells the rollicking story of a young business man, john
Randolph, jr., QBi1lWa1kerJ who for two years had been writing to a girl, Ann Gregory
flda Kauffmanj, whose address he got from a shipment of merchandise. Action begins on
the day that Ann and her aunt QThelma Taylorj are expected to arrive in town. john Sr.
fFred Krusej and his foreman, Bill Gordan, fMerrill Grubbsj contrive a scheme to keep the
lovers from meeting, but the situation becomes even more complicated when the aunt, whose
name is identical to Ann's, is mistaken for the young girl.
Adding one difficulty to another, Paul Jackson QDon Buseckj -a detective reporter,
and his accomplice, Miss Carlson fMonta Vitterj -try their best to destroy john Sr's. cam'
paign for mayor of the town. But the play ends happily when Ann and john, Jr. plan to
be married, and John Sr. successfully wins the election for mayor.
The comedy for the play was supplied by Bessie fMarion Rosenbergl, the efficient
gumfchewing secretary, Mrs. Sheffield, fAudrey Kastnerj a nosy head of the Women's
Civic League, and an officer of the law, QBen Levy, who was blind to all gangster techniques.
The Girl Reserves, a new organization for girls, under the supervision of Miss Betty B.
Britton and Miss Olive J. Schroyer, started at school the second semester. The motto of the
club is: "Try to face life squarely". It is an organization run primarily by the Young
Women's Christian Association. Some of the projects which the Club undertook are: Mak'
ing scrapbooks for soldiers, a silk stocking drive, and sewing for the Red Cross. The ofiicers
for this year are: Sue Weislogel, President, Opal Disen, VicefPresidentg Jean Holland, Sec'
retaryg Kathleen Vigrass, Treasurer, and Evelyn Pastorius, Program Chairman. Since the
club was just started the latter part of the year, it was not possible to accomplish great
things, however it is hoped with the good foundation the club built this year, that it can really
be classed as the outstanding club for girls.
The Girl's Varsity "F" Club is a comparatively new organization, started last year for
the benefit of all girls who had earned varsity letters. The ofiicers for the new year were
chosen at our first meeting and the following were elected: Elma Hotchkiss, President, Sue
Weislogel, Vice-President, and Mildred Anderson, SecretaryfTreasurer.
The club has undertaken several projects, two of which were the building of targets for
archery, and helping to plan and take charge of the girls' activities on Jumbo Night.
The other members of the club are: Evelyn Pastorius, Monta Vitter, and Jean Holland.
Our,thanks to Miss Schroyer for her help and cooperation in making this Girl's Varsity
"F" an important part of this year.
BOY'S VARSITY "F"
This year, under the direction of Mr. joseph Amendola, the Varsity Club has reor'
ganized in an effort to set up a firm foundation for the future years, and it has succeeded.
The boys in the Varsity Club are those who have been admitted to the club after
winning a varsity sports letter. These boys, though few in number, did much this year to make
our club a tradition and organization of true merit.
After the election of ofhcers, who were Seymour Baskin, President, Robert Gidner, Vice'
President, and Merten Hinkle, SecretaryfTreasurerg the boys set out to accomplish a number
of wellfperformed deeds. The first job was to set up a regular constitution. We then under'
took an assembly program for the high school, after which we began individual projects.
Before the end of the term we will have accredited to our club, the accomplishment of what
we know will be a successful Jumbo Night, the showing of athletic movies to the students,
a dance, a beautifullyfdesigned plaque by two of our members, and a fine radio skit to be
presented in a forth-coming assembly.
It has been a successful year for us, and we hope that we have built an organization
that will, in the future years, carry on the fighting tradition of Fairview athletics and the
respect of a fine upstanding club.
F. F. A.
The F. F. A., Future Farmers of America, a new organization in Fairview High School,
is composed of those members taking vocational agriculture who wish to join.
Under the capable leadership of our teacher and advisor, Mr. Kell, the members of the
Vocational Agriculture Class have attained much credit and success. Our first project was
to enter an exhibition booth at the annual Wattsburg Fair. We received the alloted first prize
of S40.00. Ben Levy, Leo Getz, Orville Weislogel, and joseph Desko took places in the judgf
ing contest while John Gresh, Richard East, Hazen Lewis, and a few others received prizes on
fruit-s and vegetables. In all, Fairview was wellfrepresented in the Wattsburg Fair and re-
ceived ample credit in the Erie newspapers.
The elected officers of the F. F. A. Club are as follows: Richard East, President, Delbert
Cochran, VicefPresidentg Tony Desko, Treasurer, joe Desko, Secretary, Ben Levy, Reporter,
and Leo Getz, Watchdog.
Vocational Agriculture, being a new course in our school, had to start from scratch. With
the fine assistance and direction of Mr. Kell, practically a new shop was made for the boys
and a new extension to the tool shed outside of the school was made.
The F. F. A. Club has given many boys an opportunity to participate in an organization
in which they are interested and which will be beneficial to them in later life.
We hope that Vocational Agriculture and the F. F. A. this year has established a strong
foundation in the Fairview High School and community, and hope it will be a success and a
benefit to everyone.
1-11 -Y ,
This year, the Boys HifY Club was under the direction of Mr. J. R. Amendola. At the
first meeting, the seventeen former members elected Fred Wilson, President, Fred Kruse,
Vice-President, and Merrill Grubbs, Secretary'Treasurer. The first problem was the initiation
of new members, and on January 4, eight new members were taken into the club. As one
of our projects for the year, the HifY took charge of the Victory Book Campaign in Fairview
High School and met with great success in collecting one hundred and eleven books during a
At the present time, our personnel consists of the following members: Seymour Baskin,
Bill Walker, Sam Graff, Don Buseck, Bob Busi, Del Cochran, Ben Levy, George Sample,
Bob Gidner, Dick East, Dick Payne, Melvin Bardsley, Don McCray, Harold Cooper, James
Tingley, Jim Ritchie, Owen Waxham, Fred Kruse, Roger Kruse, Fred Wilson, Merrill
Grubbs, and Robert Levy.
JUNIOR I-IISTORIAN CLUB
This, a new club, is one of many such Pennsylvania history clubs. These clubs have a
determination to know more about Pennsylvania and to obtain a working knowledge of this
Our club intends to learn more about our local surroundings and community. As we
find out more of this, by tours, meetings, and reports, we will relate the importance and conf
nection of our section to that of the whole state of Pennsylvania. Through this club it is our
hope to know and have a better understanding of the state in which we live.
LITERARY CCN TEST
This year, our "Battle of Wits" was held on November the 14th. This performance
marked the twentyffifth anniversary of the annual literary contest and, in accordance with
the times, a patriotic theme was dwelt upon. In order to make the contest more informal and
interesting, Marion Rosenberg acted as the announcer and introduced the subjects.
The program was opened with two very appropriate essays: "The Symbolism of the
American Flag" given by Sue Weislogel, a senior: and "The High School Student's Part In
National Defense" given by a junior, Merrill Grubbs. Although it was very close, the seniors
won the first round of the contest.
The winning poem, "The Murder of Lidice", was given by Donald Buseck, a sophomore,
while plenty of competition was supplied by the freshman representative, Patricia Hannah,
who ably read the poem "Hail Columbia!"
"See Here, Private Hargrove", given by Richard Walker, and the tragic story of "The
Raft", reviewed by Mary Hart, were close choices for the book reviewg but the latter came
through to receive the nod of the judges.
The final event was a timely debate on a subject of future importance:
RESOLVED: That at the end of the present world
conflict a United States of Europe be set up as a step
towards world peace.
The affirmative senior team was composed of Evelyn Pastorius and Seymour Baskin
with Marion Rosenberg as alternateg and the negative junior team boasted Opal Disen and
Fred Wilson as speakers with Jean Muller, alternate. The debate resulted in a tie for the
Our judges were: Attorney Richard Agresti, of Erie: Dr. M. J. Relihan, Prof. of Ed. at
Mercyhurst College, and Mrs. Wm. Lowstetter, Fairview Boro Grade School teacher. After
debating, they gave 53 points to the winning Sophomores: the seniors and the juniors tied
with 50 points each, and the freshmen held fourth place with 48 points.

SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
In September, 1939, thirty eight of us entered high school for the first time, ready and
waiting to hecome a part of F. H. S. At iirst we were selffeonscious and hashful, hut the so-
phomores helped us get over it hy giving us an initiation party. But revenge is sweet, and as
sophomores it was our turn to he helpful to the incoming freshmen.
Through the jumhle of stationery sales, hake sales, dinners, dances, etc., we finally reached
our financial goalvthe juniorfsenior prom. We worked hard to give our prom and now that
it is over we credit it to work well done.
Four years sound like a long time, hut with plays, cluhs, operettas, literary contests, and
sport events, they soon go quickly. And now we realize it is 1943, the year we graduate.
Through these four years we've lost a numlwer of classmates until now there are hut twenty'
one of us left. Whoever said that high school life was one of the hest parts of life was
certainly right---we've enjoyed every hit of it, even the darker moments. And now we leave
F. H. S., hoping we can fully live up to our motto, chosen as freshmen: "Today we follow, to-
morrow we lead!"

SEN ICR CLASS PROPHECY
As our huge transport was about ready to take off, two people hurried up to the door.
As the stewardess, Thelma Taylor, helped them in, we recognized Congressman Frederick
Kruse and his invaluable secretary, Ida Mae Stork As they claimed their seats, which of all
things were just behind Mrs. Holland Qyou used to know her as Sue Weislogelj returning to
her home in California after visiting her parents, Pilot Bob Gidner entered to check over
the passenger list and then returned to help co-pilot Dick Sample inspect the controls. I won'
der who that fellow is sleeping in the front seat?
Gosh, someone just dropped a briefcase of music on the floor. Why Jean Walter! When
did you get back from St. Louis? Did you see Esther Payne at the airport? She was on her
way to Chicago to take part in another roundftable discussion.
I see Roger Kruse is still taking reconnaissance pictures for the government, and his
assistant fit's permanent nowj, Nina Lewis, is always with him.
Ouch! We must have hit an air pocket-or maybe Mildred Anderson is up forward
trying to take over the controls. She evidently didn't get enough flying with the W.A.F.S.
Isn't that a huge farm down there? Whom did you say owned it? Richard East! That's
right, I remember nowg Tony Desko is his foreman, isn't he?
Hello, Seymour. Congratulations on your team's fine work. It must feel good to be the
coach of the champions of the eastern colleges!
Just about everyone from old F. H. S. is here. I see Evelyn Pastorius must have decided
flying was safer than learning to drive. She and Elma Hotchkiss have had some great times
traveling around the country together.
We must be stopping to pick up more passengers. Shall we get out and walk about a
bit? Isn't this a beautiful airport? Do you see who the manager is? Marion Rosenberg. She
just can't keep away from them. She even has Dorothy Kauffman as her typist.
There goes our signal to take off again so we must be getting back to the plane. Our new
passengers are already seated.
Isn't that successfulelooking woman very familiar? Yes, she is, it's Berdena Schluraff.
She tells us that Betty Ann Walter has just become head sales manager for a large mailforder
This, a fleeting streak of silver into the vast blue sky, symbolizes our journey into the
deep, unknown future.
Oh, yes. That fellow sleeping in the front seat? That's Dick Payne, going fishing in
the West on his government pension.
This year's senior play, "Don't Look Now" by J. Dan Fairman and directed by Miss
Elizabeth Summerville, will take place on May 14th.
The play revolves around the expected visit of a rich nephew to the Sherman family, but
on his way he is attacked by gangsters. He escapes in tramp's clothing and makes his way to
the Sherman house, only to be unidentified and treated in the manner of a tramp. The com'
plication set in with the remainder of the family and friends taking part, but everything turns
for the better in the final scenes.
As yet, the cast has not been chosen, but we feel sure that the play will be a huge success
and that it will be long remembered as a happy senior farewell by the audience and the mem'
bers of the senior class.
