' I Sensor P oy 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. Joan Engelhart 77

Library News If you were to visit the Morrisonville High School you would find many students in the library. Some may be reading newspapers and mag- azines, some may be checking out books, and still others will be just "1oafing". Some of the outstanding new books of the year are: Son 2 Q-ie Black Stallion, 101 Years' Entertainment, Cheaper by the Dozen, Highpockets, Story of the Negro, River of the Wolves, Watch for 1Tall White Sail, and Inside ttf F. B. I. We have quite a store of magazines too. For the girls there is "Seventeen", for the boys we find "Boys' Life", and for the interest of all we notice "Life", "Post", Readers' Digest", and other magazines of interest. Of course there are daily newspapers, comics and all, which we enjoy reading. 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. ' Alice Beaty 79
