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".

The theme chosen this year was "The Forty Niners" honoring the seniors. Appropriate invitations and place cards were presented to each guest. The beautiful Camellia Room in the Hotel Frisina at Taylorville was the scene of the banquet. The program consisting of the following was presented after the banquet! Star Dust . . ...... . . . . . . Bob Clower Cheri-Cheri-Bin ...... . . . . . . Melvin Rich Red Roses for a Blue Lady . . . . Loren Arkebauer Old Man River .................. Edward Jones Careless Hands and The Happy Farmer . Ramona Bilyeu Alice June Beaty, Joyce Reynolds, Marian Smith Master of Ceremonies ........... Frank Hornbeck Following the banquet and program, dance music was furnished by Chaw Mank's Orchestra in the High School gymnasiunn. The theme of the prom was carried out in the decorating of the gym also. Dance programs were issued. ' The ceiling of the gym was covered to give the effect of a large wagon wheel. One corner was occupied by a covered wagon enclosed by a rail fence. The orchestra was seated in the other corner at the same end of the gyrn. The stage was transformed into a pretty setting for the crowning of the queen. There were blue and white dec o r ations with baskets of peonies adding to the splendor. The name of the queen was revealed by the retiring queen, Clara Richter, as she crowned Miss Pauline McLean queen of the 1949 prom. The members of the queen's court included: Ramona Bilyeu, Juanita Davidson, Gloria Taylor, and Marian Smith. During the ceremony the queen was presented with a dozen red roses and a cosmetic bag by the junior class. The next dance was honoring the new queen, her attendants, and last year's queen. The g r and march brought the c e r e monie s honoring the queen to a close. The rest of the evening consisted of dancing and refreshments. Gloria Taylor 73
