Our troupe number 195, under the direction of Miss Ila Grace Hagie. started off with a 'bang" this year. They held their iirst meeting September 21. and elected Donald Cronkhite. president: and Dorothea Dickens. secretary and treasurer to guide them dur- ing their busy year. They decided on the motto: "To be a truly active organization." as their aim for this year. They designated the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month for their meetin . and took on the job of being stage managers for the year. Th-y started out by studying classic plays in connection with N. B. C, radio series. During December they all took a vacation as the majority of them found parts ill tre senior play. In January they came to port at Dorothea Dickens' home for an initia- tion and took on the new members: Ray Fenton. Donald Young. and Maurien Ledger- wood. who were qualified by the senior play. After the senior play. they started the study of make-up. In February they dis- continued the study of make-up and gave the play. "Singapore Spider. at a public per- formance on February 9. in celebration of National Drama Week. To complete this celebration they had a theater party on Sunday. February 19. After staging the one-oct plays for the speech class. they gave a play in front of the assembly called: 'Luncheon For Six." This play was also given before the Masonic Lodge on April la as a part of the program in honor of Education Week. To top the year's activities. we held our annual Thespian banquet. May 16. The Home Economics Club prepared and served the dinner. F B H S. THE PlOnE.ER PAQE 43 --lu J 'fr ,yt 53- A. A -.
