NIGHT OF JANUARY 16TH BY AYN RAND
The senior class play, directed by Mrs. Robinson, was a three-act
drama full of suspense and excitement. The action of the play took place
in a court room. Karen Andre, played by Marian Smith, was on trial for
the murder of Bjorn Faulkner. Lester Curvey and Bob Clower served
as attorneys. A jury was chosen from the audience.
Bjorn Faulkner had been murdered on the night of January 16th. and
on that same night Karen Andre had been seen pushing a body off of the
roof of the penthouse. Acording to "Underworld Larry Regan", played
by Ed Jones, this was the body of a gangster named Lefty O'Toole.
Karen had served as secretary to "Swindler Bjorn Faulkner" up to
the time of his marriage to Nancy Lee Whitfield,played by Barbara Hill.
Melvin Rich, acting as father of Nancy Lee, demanded that all personal,
as well as business, relations between Mr. Faulkner and Miss Andre be
cut off. At the time Karen had been discharged, however, Bjorn did not
stop seeing her.
To add to the anxiety and suspence there were many witnesses for
and against Karen. They consisted of Dr. Kirkland fDonald Lee Rathge-
berj, the doctor who had been called to examine the body of Mr. Faulkner:
Mrs. John Hutchins fAlice June Beatyj, the negro wife of a janitor with
"no gumption": Homer Van Fleet fDickBailsD, a private investigator who
had been hired by Nancy Lee to shadow Bjorn Faulkner, Elmer Sweeney
fFrank Hornbeckj, a round faced, rookie policeman, Magda Svenson QJoan
Engelhartj, who speaks with a Swedish accent in a loud raucous voiceg
Jane Chandler QSylvia Taylorj, a handwriting e xpe rtg Sigurd Janguist
fCharles Johnsonj, rather timid and also speaks with a Swedish accent,
and Roberta Van Rensselaer fRamona Bilyeuj, the wife of Lefty O'Toole.
No courtroom scene can be complete without a prison matron, who
was played by Norma Jones, a bailiff, Jim Donaldsong secretaries, Bar-
bara Grundy and Pauline McLeang a clerk, Jim Swinger, a stenographer,
lone Mundhenkeg and naturally a judge, played by Jim Stanley.
After all the testimonies had been given the jury was called from the
audience to give their decision. This was, indeed, an unusual play because
the audience played a very important part in it.
We wish to thank Mrs. Robinson for her long hours of hard work and
patience. Someone else we should definitely mention is Gloria Taylor,
assistant director. She also had a big task and fulfilled it well.

all we notice "Life", "Post", Readers' Digest", and other magazines of
Of course there are daily newspapers, comics and all, which we enjoy
Individual name cards are used for checking out books this year. If
you lose your card youhave to pay S 1.00 for it. By using these individual
cards it is much more convenient to find misplaced or lost books. There
are also fines for overdue books.
We think Mrs. Robinson has certainly helped us to have a better
library. She has worked during her free hours and after school to make
it more beneficial to the students.
The Library Staff also deserves credit for a well-run library. This
group of students have agreed to take care of the library for one period
each day. They are always willing to help you locate books, check them
out, or notify you of books overdue.
The Staff is as follows:
1 hour . . . . Marjorie Jenkins
2 hour . . . . Sue Mae Stewart
3 hour . . . Carolyn Curvey
4 hour . . . . . Alice Beaty
5 hour . . . . Melba Taylor
6 hour . . . . Glenn Myers
7 hour . .. ........... Barbara Lowis
8 hour ............. Virginia Ollers
Many enjoyable hours have been spent in the Library this past year
and we know students will continue to enjoy this advantage. '
