Drama—the study and production of plays—is a serious and important phase of Mon-ticello life. Not only are all-school productions given, but, in addition, members of the Play Production Classes cast and direct several plays a year, even designing and building their own sets.
The first play, in November, Mary of Scotland, by Maxwell Anderson, was an all-college production. In March the preparatory School presented Augustin Daly’s melodrama "Under the Gaslight. The Convocation Play, in which both College and Preparatory players took part, was She Stoops to Conquer.

Jayne Ruslander Manager-Elect, 1940-'41GOLF
Margaret Swanson Manager-Elect, 1940-’41
So many students signed up for this comparatively new sport at Monticello that in addition to regular classes, two trips a week were made to the Alton Municipal Golf Course.
Page 73With newly constructed courts and a full-sized practice court equipped with a lively back-board, this sport proved highly enjoyable to its followers. A ladder tournament, planned for May, climaxed the season.
Ann Wallis Manager, 1939-'40
Offered as both a fall and spring sport, the Badminton programs consisted chiefly of ladder tournaments. Both outdoor and indoor courts were used in season.

Page 80mmYou mean you haven’t found us yet? Then we MUST be hereSEPTEMBER 18 . . .You really look bewildered, Phyl; and we knew exactly how you felt. Getting settled was so wearying.
SEPTEMBER 27 . . . We were no sooner settled than off we went on our boat trip up the "Mississip." Remember those marching cadets, the calliope playing "Monti Girl”, and the orchestra that provided our music? Box lunches certainly disappeared like nobody’s kuciness. Here’s Clarky with her hot dog—.
PilRC 81October 14 . . . Dressed to kill, off we went to the Opera—To moke things even more exciting Rose Bampton came to school on Sunday for tea. We sat in Miss Crouch’s apartment while Miss Bampton told us all about being an opera star.October 13 . . . Rollo Walter Brown came to school and told us all about “The Novel That Every Girl Means to Write."
He even told us about the chapter in his new book "I Travel by Train which he wrote when he was last on campus.
November 18 . . . Just part of the old gang brushing up—we saved all our energy for the "Prin" game and then really made history.November 3 . . . Halloween certainly was a big (and, for the Juniors, a painful, day!) Talk about hustle! You never saw so many Juniors hiking to the Tea Room in your life! They even helped Seniors clean rooms and the chemistry lab. But that wasn’t all!
At night we were entertained by our dignified faculty with a presentation of “Trial By Jury." Then to the game room for apple bobbing, dancing, and good old apple cider!
Pngc 85December 8 . . . We certainly were busy bodies in a domestic line, getting ready for the Doll Dinner! Here are Snorky, Kahnie, Pete, and B. J. concentrating real hard on their sewing.
December 9 . . . Here are Billie and Fritzi getting ready for a big time -we worked so hard fixing the entertainment hall that we really enjoyed every dance.
Note Herzler's doodads —in the background.
January 9. . . Wish we had a picture of Dr. Babu Lai Singh! Will you ever forget his choice English, his beautiful turban (we know Herzler and Audrey won't) and his faith in a New India?
February 24 . . . Though the Seniors got pretty stiff in the knees, it certainly was fun! The whole dining room was red and white, the Junior class officers were presented, the seniors danced the Minuet, and every thing was SO exciting!March ... to Spring Vacation . . . This wasn’t exactly on our academic calendar, but how we liked the shock! We served, set tables, made salads, and really were terribly professional about the whole thing.
kMarch 9 . . . Another celebrity! Nathan Milstein thought Marguerite Craggett a very talented musician.
March 21 . . . Really we ll have to admit we never laughed so hard in our lives! The floor show, "Swing," the villain, Dossie, Marilyn, Jo Ann, Lila, Betty, well, the whole cast just acted up beautifully in "Under the Gaslight."
