The paper was published on the first Wednesday of every six weeks. There was no issue for the first six weeks. . The issuing of the "Mohawk" was lots of fun, but also plenty of hard work. The businessmen in town obligingly bought ads for the "Mohawk" and in this way helped sponsor our paper. Our thanks go to our advisor, Miss Sleevar, for all the valuable help she gave usg and to the production staff, the Typing ll' class. Recognition also should go to the many persons who helped make our paper a success by turning in write-ups. Thanks a lot, folks. We enjoyed very much our wo rk which is now finished: and we leave the task and our good wishes to the next class. Barbara Lowis 69

So Very Young by Dana Thomas The Junior Class presented a three act comedy, "So Very Young", on October 28, '49. Everyone worked hard to make the play a success, especially our director, Miss Hewitt. lt was a wholesome comedy with an appeal to everyone. Mr. and Mrs.Chambers fDonald Rathgeber and Barbara Lowisj are delighted that eighteen-year-old Ann will be bridesmaid for her friend, June Thayer fRonella Armitagej. Privately,they have their own opinion of marriage for one so young. But Ann fMargie Ienkinsj announces that she will be married "next Wednesday" ! The boy is Pat St. John QLeroy Yardj. They have known of Ann's "crush" but discounted its significance. Now, Pat is leaving for school in the east and Ann is to go with him ! Now is the time for all members to come to the aid of the family. First, they point out that she is too young. Frances, fSue Stewart, Ann's married sister, then joins them to plead. Even the neighbors add their arguments. . . all to no avail. Belva, fVirginia Ollerj an old maid friend, states her 'scruples' . Aunt Kate fShirley Gattonj definitely dis- approves ! Then it is that Dad flatly puts his foot down to prohibit the marriage. Thus it is that, in Act Three, with the help of Rupert, QAllan Curveyj the boy next door, Ann elopes to follow Pat. But it turns out that Pat's plans have been changed and he is still in town. Ann has eloped by her- self! Frustrated and worried with other s e rio us problems to harass them, the family is in a turmoil. Father's problem is solved by Mr. A. Albert Monroe fDarrell Brownj. But everything is not under control, and Pat is equally anxious. And suddenly .... Ann is back! With her bags at the station, her ticket purchased, the realization has come over her that she cannot build happiness by creating unhappiness. In a brief hour, Ann has sensed the meaning of sacrifices. The money which was her nest-egg, the profits from a business venture of hers and Pat's, she has loaned to Frances and her husband to solve their financial problem. She will postpone her marriage. It is her father who makes the decision now. He realizes thatthough Ann is only eighteen, she is a woman . . .with a woman's understanding selflessness. Her business venture proves her maturity. With twenty- five minutes to catch the train we find the family and neighbors scurrying about to transform Ann from the little bobby-soxer in saddle oxfords and bandana . . . to a young woman about to be married . . . a bride who is "so very young".
