You can't do that, you'i'e too green to be able to dance! Such may be the reception given to a bewildered ninth grader upon the night of his initia- outing is planned tion. This particular and carried out by the Morton Elite Club, an organization which has been active in school aiairs for many years. During a school year, the Elite Club us- ually sponsors, or at least assists with, a minimum of three dances, including the initiation frolicg too, convocation programs find the high schools officers lending an able hand. This year, at the close of the elections, four seniors found themselves holding offices which were vacated last spring. William Bruce was elected president, Helen Heath, vice-president, Olive Hull, secretary, and Charles Alexander, ser- geant-at-arms. As critic, Janet Hardin re- tained the position she held last year. The class representatives for the various positions then prepared ballots. Every high school student was given a ballot, by means of which he was able to cast his vote without influence from anyone. After the initiation party, which was the first event on the Elite Club calendar, pre- parations for the Armistice Day program began. The Elite Club officers assisted in hw.: Olive Hull Charles Alexander Secretary Sergeant-at-arms making these arrangements. During the Christmas and spring vacation dances, Bill Bruce, president, ofticiated. In the province of sports the Elite Club also found opportunity for service-espe- cially to the spectators. Ellen Rowe cap- tained the yell leaders' trio this year. Never before in the history of our school has a girl been on the team. Dale Hughes and Robert Hargis were elected along with Ellen, but Dale went out for basketball, and a replacement was necessary. James Hughes was selected by the Elite Club to fill the vacancy caused by his brother's resignation. New suits were procured for the team, also. The combination was white duck slacks and royal blue satin blouses. Thorough drill in unified cheer leading was given the group by Miss Hardin, and by the close of the season there was a marked improvement in the cheering section's re- sponse. ' Althcugh the Elite Club is still active in X school affairs, part of its burdens have vw Student Council. In the past few years the Council has begun to sponsor most o been transferred to the shoulders of the ale' f-ef in V 1 lf f li the parties, however the Elite Club T8-gl Af J mains a symbol of united school organiza- ' tion and thought throughout the studentlii n, body.

What, they had to study English and history in high school? Yes, but that was not all they had to undergo. The mystery of plants-biology, shop for boysg typing and shorthand-strange things to the "freshies." Not only were these subjects foreign, but there, too, was the responsi- bility of getting acquainted with the cus- toms and rules of high school. So much there was to assimilate that the diploma seemed even more unattainable than ever. Before completing the year, however, a member of the class, Madeline Potter, won the Rush County Oratorical Contest, giving Morton permanent possession of the American Legion rotating plaque. This high honor raised the morale of the class of 1939 and when some other members of the class made good showings in the dis- trict and state band contests, they began to feel indispensable. Green fruits invariably begin to ripen. With the opening of the sophomore year, the class showed an enrollment of oniy forty-nine members, but how much they had developed since the period of their novitiate! The task of choosing the pre- ferred course of study presented itself first. Courses offered were commercial, aca- demic, home economics, and shop, so that each sophomore could satisfy his peculiar lx bent. Bishop Odle emerged from the county Q oratorical contest with the winner's medal, Morton student body was more im- essed than ever by the ability of those 0 were approaching the half way mark. J Another year gone! The role of "jolly" umors was readily accepted by everyone. lthough they were jolly it was their duty to act as upper classmen, and so fp' s 1 many new oblrgations were to make this a fy 47 particularly busy school year. For the first time in several years the TK ounty oratorical contest was held at Mor- tc n Following the precedent set by Made- if-Q-XX 'MHA it T-4 ' riff it X 1-s 4' A ' , -- -4' if I9 be -et, if - EJ I Y-ai' X A tts--fiiisiil wars ' .ns iii ll li N 1 F' -X" , I 4 ' , 1 ' ik K' .U i q . , . . 1 i..---T V v , Q gif ,- i . i ' ' I I Q, J-I . pg, - I l?E?lSfxh,tQ:xrA N it M .' Q 1 ,L X -W T - line and Bee, William Bruce upheld the record of the class by winning for Morton once more. The envied position of editor of the school paper was capably filled by Sybil Humphrey. For the first time since 1933. this important post was held by a girl. Of course everyone in high school waited eagerly to see the first edition. Once the seal of approval was set by the boys, the juniors directed their attention to other fields. Bill Bruce, drum-major, won first in the state baton twirling contest. Girls were awarded trips and prizes in their 4-H work, and boys received much praise for their outstanding achievements in sports. At last the time has come for this class, now composed of fifty-five members, to act as "dignified seniors." The class election was held at the beginning of the year giving the office of president to Kenneth Rowe, vice-president to Robert Woods, secretary to Vivian Butts, and class representative to Rosemary Churc- hill and Dale Hughes. A highlight of the year was the day tn which the seniors attended the basketball game at the Xenia, Ohio, Soldiers' and Sailors' Children's Home. Upon arriving at Xenia, the girls and boys went to various cottages to get ready for dinner. Following dinner an inspection tour was made of the Home grounds until time for the rifie match and ball game. In the evening there was a dance in the large dining hall, bringing to an end a perfect day, and the realization of the dream of every graduating class for years. Charles Alexander's winning of the county oratorical championship also gave permanent possession of a second plaque for Morton-a record unequalled by any other school in Rush County. The fitting climax to such a high school career was furnished by Superintendent Smith. The first class to be graduated from Morton in caps and gowns! That is a final memory for every senior to cherish in the many years to come. Robert Woods Vice-President Vivian Butts Secretary Dale Hughes Representative Vw S s 3 ' 'Q ,M 4, r I 4x .

It hardly seems possible, but it's true. Sometimes when I think about the coming initiation Iilll almost afraid it won't be worthwhile. Still, I'Il get a chance to study some new and exciting f?l subjects. For example: biology ta study of life, so I ought to find out what life is in ten easy lesscnslg typing tclickety-clark, clack, elack-and this is supposed to be a noiseless typewriterlg and shorthand. September 15. Dear Diary: SOIIIG of these new subjects are getting to be a pain in the neck. I never knew so many differ- ent combinations of serawlings could exist anywhere. It seems llll re like Chinese or Jupanese than shorthand to me. By the way, how did it ever get the name short- hand? lt generally takes me twice as long to take it in shorthand, and even th.n I can hardly trnnslilte it. October Il.

After the smoke of the battle had cleared away, and toll had been taken, we saw that the girls had made a grand slam. Kathleen Foist was hoisting her colors above the president's seat. Kathleen is one of the few even-tempered red heads. She is a member of the Choir, and Student Council. She is also a junior leader in 4-H work, one of the accordion girls, and a student in beauty culture. The honor bestowed upon Kathleen could not have been placed in more reliable hands. Louise Bowyer, another very reliable and likeable individual, appeared to bc a choice for the vice-presidency. Louise is kept quite busy with her activities She is active in Chair, Glee Club, Girl Scouts, and beauty culture. When Epworth League was in progress you could always find Louise present. Everyone who has had any connection with her will agree that this trust was wisely placed. Louise, by the way, is a blonde and has nice features. We have yet to mention Anna Faye Brooks, who was successful in her cam- paign for oflice of secretary. Faye is active in Commercial Club, Glee Club, Rifle Club, and, like Louise, could always be found in Senior League. Anna Faye is a complement to the other two in appearance for she has brown hair. To the junior class falls the responsi- bility of planning and carrying out the Junior-Senior Promenade. This is a gala event for the juniors because it gives them a chance to show respect to the seinors. Near the first of October, Ernie Swihart, one cf the most popular boys on the campus, was discharged. Ernie was a candidate for the ohice of Sergeant at Arms, but he was forced to Withdraw upon his discharge. Ernie was a guard on the basketball team, end on the foot- ball team, and shortstop on the baseball team, besides being in other activities. Ernie was one of the leaders of the Junior Class. Wherever he went he had some one with him, he was never with- out a friend.. Upon leaving the Home, Ernie went to Indianapolis, where he en- V1 AJ YQ L' wi! !- Ij fel 1 ,Mi 4 rclled in Technical High School. Erni L is making fine progress in his work. . , N VVe, the seniors of 1939, wish the pres- ent junior class all the luck in the world il and a senior year as pleasant as ours. fa" f 4 1' fb! 4 'i w' ,- E e' ,ii .- ' ll yi ' i .

THE STUDENT COUNCIL First Row, left to right-Mildred Bockover, Ronald Grimes, Lydia Hodgin, Ellen Rowe, Laurabelle Gushwa, and Vivian Butts. Second Row-Betty Richards, Kathleen Foist, Oletha Fye, Juanita Wilson, Lida Parker, and Harold Miller. Third Row-Dale Hughes, Arthur Randolph, Louise Melton, Hubert Paris, Rose- mary Cox, Bishop Odle, and Evelyn Freund. Fourth Row- Helen Root, Robert Zwyers, Betty Schofield, Myron Rench, Margaret Wilson, Robert Chilcott, Olive Hull, and William Bruce. AMONG the organizations on the campus the Student Council is one of the most outstanding. The council is composed of representatives of every division having members above elementary school age. C. W. Hartke has acted as supervisor for the council during the past year. Dale Hughes and Olive Hull were elected chairman and secretary respectively at the first meeting of the Student Council, and although no particular committees were appointed or organized, the members were divided into various groups which pre- pared for parties. The Hallowe'en party was put in the hands of the council and they were very successful in carrying out the program. During the latter part of the year the mem- bers of the council arranged to have a dance which only escorted girls should attend. They were rewarded with a fine turnout. The Christmas dance, and several other parties were arranged under the sponsorship of C. W. Hartke and Council. Dr. Guy Bingham, a vocational speaker from Washington D. C., was the guest of the student body. He gave the senior class helpful hints on planning a successful life. There was also a book review by Mrs. Clyde Martin. The student body enjoyed their convocations. Baseball, basketball, and ping-pong tour- naments for the boys were conducted through the efforts of the Student Council while the girls had soccer, basketball, an volley ball tournaments. At the prese.t i time the Council is busy on problems 0 The organization usually met on Th the students, and spring activities. ,ll Qi . - 'vii I l day evenings and discussed the problems A f X the student body.

On the alternate weeks the splendid sacred music was directed by Mrs. Virginia Cox. As Christmas time drew near, the choir worked diligently for the annual Christ- mas Cantata. This year Miss Becker chose "Noel," composed by Henry Wessel. The Cantata featured nine solos, the greatest display of individual talent which had ever been presented in one Cantata, here. At Easter time, the choir broke forth with the joyful tidings of t'The Risen Re- deemer" by E. K. Heyser. The service, which was opened with the processional, gradually rose in tempo until the chapel rang with joy, as the recessional brought the service to a close. Madeline Potter accompanied for both the Christmas Can- tata and the Easter Cantata. SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA THE Symphony Orchestra, under the supervision of C. R. Deardorff, is a very progressive organization. The stringed sections of the orchestra consist of eight first violins, seven secorid violins, four violas, four cellos, and four string basses. This makes up a standard stringed section. The orchestra entered the district high school orchestra contest, at Rushville. The selections played were: "Symphony Miniataure, No. 3." by Herald M. Johnson, the required number, "Triumphal March," from "Sigurd Jorsalfaru, by E. Grieg, arranged by Bruno Reibald, and the string number, "Danse A l'Antique." This year they received first place in second division, and are justly proud of their improvement. Each member was given the oppor- tunity to hear the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Fabien Sevitsky, during its series of concerts. It was arranged so that the groups which went heard the feature solo of their respective instruments. These experiences proved very helpful and inspiring. BAND By JAMES HUGHES IT's 7:15 again and now we take you to the Morton Memorial High School Build- ing-up the three Hights of stairs and here we are once.more just in time for band practice. The band is one of the biggest organi- zations in the Home as well as the oldest. Organized under William Edwards in 1887, the band developed quickly and soon began winning fame on trips to Chicago, Washington D. C., Boston, and Buialo. That summary brings us up to date. C. R. Deardorff, who succeeded E. H. Hollo- way in 1935, is still maestro at the Home and is doing a splendid job of it. After a well-deserved vacation through the summer months, the band boys return- ed to the Home August 15, to prepare for the annual American Legion Convention, to be held at Indianapolis. Music from the band Hoated to the four corners of the state of Indiana when on February 25 they "went on the air" ovcr station WIRE of Indianapolis, broadcast- ing from Pearson's Music Store Studios. This year the band won second division in the district meet at Rushville, playing "Monarch" for the warm-up number, "Shubert" the required number, and "De- bonaire" the selected. In this contest the results were that Walter Shipp was awarded recommenda- tion to the National Contest, the saxophone quartet comprised of Arnett Hamm, James Hughes, Hubert Paris, and Jessie Rankin took honors and will compete in the Na- tional Contest to be held in Indianapolis sometime in May. Others that should be mentioned for their brilliant work in this contest are: Arnett Hamm, who placed in first division with his clarinet solo, Le Roy De Hart, trombonist, placed in first division, and Raymond Wiggins, bass horn soloists,L lx completed the group who took first division honors. However none of these three bo A are eligible for the national contest. I 1 William Bruce, drum major, mad another appearance with his baton twir f ling. At Rushville he received a special recommendation to the state contest. , . .

T. Pur- ves, the Cadets organized into two battalions of three companies each. They have made very good progress in training two new companies this year. Approximately fifty older boys were selected to act as non-commissioned and commissioned officers to aid Major G. T. Purves in instructing the 300 young-er boys, who were in the seven different com- panies composing the two battalions. The Cadets gave their annual parades cn American Legion Day, September 125 and Home Coming, September 19. Drill was held outside until it was too cold, after which one company held drill l in the old gym each day. In warm weath- er drill vvas again carried on out on the parade grounds. In April the executive officers met to select the officers for next year, as the seniors were dismissed sometime commencement. before The commissioned officers attendc Army Day at Indianapolis.

TAKING a squad of thirty-eight boys, only fifteen of whom had had any ex- perience at all, Coaches H. E. Bower and C. E. Beachler welded a football team that averaged 160 on the line and 161 in the backfield. The Tiger gridmen were suc- cessful in only one attempt out of seven. The only victory of the season for the A team came September 10, when the Blue and White warriors took the field against the strong Richmond Red Devils. The first half was nip and tuck with neither team striking pay dirt. As the Morton Tigers came out for the second half, they evidently blew a fuse, for on the second play after the kickoff Jr. Davis, operating at the fullback post, dashed seventy yards behind almost fiawless interference. He crossed the goal line standing up, with no one within 20 yards of him, with the excep- tion of about half of his team mates. The elevens which were successful in dragging the Tigers to defeat were Boys' School Q18-055 Shelbyville Q27-145g Deaf School Q14-131, Rushville Q21-OJ, Park School 134-'65, and Portland Q35-OJ. The Rushville Lions, bitter rivals of the Bowermen, for the second straight year defeated the hard fighting Tigers on October 7 by a score of 21-0.

On Saturday afternoon, January 21, the Tigers put Raleigh out of the winning with a 30-17 triumph, and took their third county championship in the finals by dc- feating New Salem 28-17. Following the tourney the County Champs defeated Sacred Heart of Indian- apolis 34-11, and Raleigh 25-9 before drop- ping a hard fought contest in the final min- utes of play to Liloerty 24-23. Jumping back into the winning column, the Tigers defeated New Salem 26-25. One of the biggest upsets of the year occured when Carthag-e's Blue Raiders de-- feated the Tigers 28-23, taking from our school the Rush County Good Luck Horse- shoe which we had held for over a year. The following day the Morton fans trav- elled to Xenia, Ohio to see our Hoosiers grab an early lead, but fall behind in the last quarter to lose 29-25. In their last game of the season the weakened Tigers barely edged out Mays 21-19 in an overtime contest. The Morton five drew Rushville in the opening game of the sectional tourney. The tall, fast Rushville quintet scored an easy 38-22 victory over the fighting five from the north part of the county.

TIGER KITS IN Uetoler, lilllhl, Coach Beaehler of the Kits, made the first cull for the Morton sreonds. Approximately sixty enthusiastic lzuys turned out to his call. This group was decreased tn a reasonnlzle nunilier within a few days. At the opening game on the local hurd- wood the Kits line-up showed llowarcl and Brenner, forwards: Jk. Davis, eenterg and Vernon Cnuley and Allen Randolph, guards, for the starting lineup. ln this first game the Kits bowled over the Knifzhtstown Falcons 26-10. The Kits went down to defeat after they had won fram Manilla, Spieeland, Center- ville, and Batesville, in their first five en- counters. Brenner and Howard, Kits forwards, weie transferred to the varsity X lg ine-up, thus weakening the Kits who went l.

All of these encounters were played at the hardwoods of the aliove named. 'l'he Kits show that we ol' Morton have many gnml prospects for our future teams on the hardwopd. Most ol' these boys are sophomores and juniors. Coach Charles Heaehler was unable to pil it his squad during many games of' the seasen due to refereeing lrasketliall gamfs ut various cities over the state. Coach Haiold E. Bower, varsity coach, directed the Kits during his ahsenee and thus had a chance to experiment with the boys to he used for the varsity squad. Those boys m which he took interest were: Frank Carr, forward, Gene Timmons, forwardg Allen Randolph, guardg Vernon Cauley, guard, and Gordon Hogue, center. These athletes showed ability to think quickly, move fast, and hit the hoop with accur- acy. These are the qualities for which the coach is looking, for them he works untir- ingly. We, the graduating class of 1939, wish Coach Harold E. Bower and his ball teams the best of luck in their season of sports during 1939-40. :gt xg . 1 J 1 I ,W cw . -2 K 1. T?

Eder should have been well pleased with the turnout of baseball candidates. He had several aspirants for every position, among them 3 catchers, 7 hurlers, 2 first sackers, 3 key-stoners, 33 shortstops, 2 third basemen, and 9 men for the outer gardens. Nearly all of these boys have had some sort of experience, whether it be in high school, or American Legion Junior team. The backstop positon is reinforced and re-reinforced. Jr. Davis, last season key- stoner and American Legion catcher, holds sway over the mainland, but if he should fail there are Herbert Moit, and Bob Ger- big. Herbert has caught considerably and has proven himself capable, and Bob, although he lacks experience, is an up- and-coming little catcher. The first sack has two able patrollers in the person of Talmadge Trent and Loyal Frymouth. Talmadge didn't have much to worry about near the first of the season, because Loyal was sick, and had to get his mail at the hospital. On the keystone bag we find three sen- iors, Thomas Norris, George Wolfe, and Dale Hughes. None of these boys have played regularly at this position but all have had experience. Thomas was Jr. Davis' understudy and Dale originally played in the hot corner, George played this position during American Legion baseball, so it's a fight to the finish for the starting lineup. In the number five position, otherwise known as shortstop, we find two colored boys, Vernon Cauley, and Allen Randolph. Vernon is number one man, because of his larger stature and stronger arm, but Allen has a fine eye for ground balls and a nice batting eye. Leroy Dehart, also in this position, is making a fine showing. Over in the hot corner We have Linton Tuttle and Dale Hughes. Linton is a large boy with a fine army he can pick up prac- tically any ball in his territory. Dale i-1 the jack of all trades, he is capable of playing either second or third base, and is trying out for both positions. The outfield has the greatest number of aspirants. John Lilly, Gordon Hogue, and Carl Beard, regulars from last year, in left, center, and right respectively, have received first call in nearly all the games this year. Besides these three regulars, all of the hurlers are capable of working in these capacities. Frank Carr, Marvin Gerbig, Wayne Smith, Charles Piety, John Snedaker, and Gene Austin, are also capa- ble substitutes. In the first contest of the year, Morton met defeat at the hands cf G1'63I'1f'l6ld,S strong nine. The starting' line up was Rowe, pitching, Davis, catching, Trent, firstg V. Cauley, second, Randolph, short, Tuttle, third, Lilly, left field, Hogue, cen- ter, and Beard, right. Rowe pitched a nice brand of hall, striking out seven men and allowing only three hits. The Morton nine committed 4 errors. J. Lilly collected two of Mortons three hits and Jr. Davis was responsible for the other hit and the only run. The final score was 5 to 1 in favor of Greenfield. The second game was like those you read about in the books. The last of the Seventh found Morton trailing by a single tally. The first man up singles to right center, the second man reaches base on an error, the third man strikes out. The pitcher is bearing down, the crowd is in a frenzy. Wait a minute, wha.t's this? The Charlton center fielder is trying to sneak up on cur runner on second. Boy if this man cculd only pot one in center field! Catch me somebody!

Of the twenty-seven only seven were re- turning veterans: "Chin" Lemons, 440 man and mile relay, "Slug" Lemons, 220, 100, high jump, and half-mile relay: Bob Moit and Bob Hargis, milers, mile relay meng Art Randolph, pole vault, high jump, and hurdle mang Bob Woods, 440, high jump, mile relay: and Bishop Odle,220, and half- mile relay. This year cold weather held back prac- tice so progress was slow, but in the first mect the Tiger thinlies mowed down Bates- ville, 62-59, by taking seven firsts. They then traveled to Rushville only to lose to their archrivals 65X-435. The mile relay team was outstanding by running this event in 3:56. Morton broke into the winning column by swnmping the Silent Hoosiers 60-Ill. Lemons, um-hor mun, cume from behind to win by n foot over the Silent Hoosiers' entrant.

Richard Odle, the younger of the broth- ers, is a high barrier kicker. Dick has two more years. Bishop Odle, dashman for the Blue and White, a senior, was going good the first part of the season but his legs let down on him. "Bee" hasn't had to wash dishes as yet.

Surely you didn't forget the date, however I will admit you are busy going on tours during these summer months. Charlotte laughed so hard she cried when she learned you were the "fat lady in the circus". Bless me, Charlotte is simply nothing, weighs 92 pounds. Do you remember how we used to call her Bessie? We wouldn't have known her if she hadn't told us. She sends her love and regards. The next to give me the shock of my life were William Puterbaugh, Thomas Norris, Harold McCarrick, Dale Hughes, and Minnie Mae Evans. They have incorpor- ated their remarkable intelligence in the financial department of the Ford Motor Company. Minnie is co-president with Ford. Mary K. Tignor could not come so she sent this telegram: "Give my regards to all stop could not come because Bobby and Chuck have whooping cough." She turned out to be a fine housewife after she gave up her dream of having a Hollywood career. Meanwhile Donald Pohlmeyer, Thelma Horner, and Sybil Humphrey arrived in town, each with a new live-year contract with Adolph Zukor. One of the biggest surprises of all was Jane Chambers, who recently obtained the position as chauffuer to major of Center- ville. Her last record showed she has harmed only three buildings and two bridges. She has certainly improved since '39 Thought we were seeing things when Helen Heath, Lenora Pitts, Linton Tuttle, and George Lemons walked in with school books under their arms. From what I hear they all have B. A. degrees, and all are intensely interested in their work. After the services, we sat and gabbed Dear Clara, for a few hours, after listening to Dorothea Louise Hoover fwho now is Z1 glamorous blondej, William Kirby, R0be1't Woods, and Beverly sing a few well known arias from "Aida" to the accompaniment of Earl Wade, the famous concert pianist, Such sweet mellow tones--you should see Earl go temperamental! Can you guess fof all people tool who gave the address? Claude Ashcraft! He has taken his profession quite serious- ly, so don't be surprised if you hear him proclaimed one of the greatest evangelists of the day. Margaret Wilson arrived about 4:00 o'clock, looking very mysterious and lovely. After much coaxing from the class, sho finally told us the big secret. She is Blue- beard's ninth wife! Janie of all people! Clara, a few of the girls did tu1'n out to be housekeepers, after all. For instance, Betty Bicknell, Mildred Bockover, Bernice Harrell, and Oletha Fye. All are very happy and find much to occupy their time. At the evening banquet, Ed Cline, Ro- bert Copp, Blythe Crow, Robert Derado, and Dizzy topped the meal off with pop- corn, peanuts, and lemonade. They tell us they have made a startling success in their business transactions. All have gained at least fifty pounds except Dizzy, who, like Charlotte, has now dwindled down to nothing. Remember Shorty Rowe? Clara, you would never guess it, but Ellen now has a dress-shop on Fifth Avenue. She looked lovely, and that dress! She made it all by her little self. She said to tell you L0 come up and she'd make you a new outfit for your next tour. fHer hair was cer- X tainly stunning, too.J W We danced to Temmy Lee's famous swing orchestra after supper. Lamoin fig! Hamm, Edith Fisher, Helen Root, and Lida Parker gave a grand demonstration of ,' lip ballet dancing. Churchy accompanic I' '5 with the violin. Well, that's all for now. if 1 1 Love, ' !

Otlicers were chosen as follows: President - Olive Hull Secretary -- ,- Madeline Potter Publicity Manager George Wolfe The first project was the presentation of a puppet show on G. A. R. day. Puppets were constructed by students in Mrs. But- ler's l'01,l1l, and the show was produced by the older members of the dramatic club. Tw.. plays were given, "The Three Bears" and "Jack and the Beanstalk." Speaking parts were taken by George Wolfe, Made- line Potter, Olive llull, Rosemary Churc- hill, Bill Bruce, and Bishop Odle. lVork was begun in early December on "The Birds' l'hristmas Carol." the Christ- mas play. This three-act play pleasingly tills the st. ry of n little crippled-girl, who brings cheer to the Huggies family. The lirsl and third acts take place in the home of the wealthy Bird family, while the M-eoml nrt gives the utulience it peek into lla- ltumzles' kitchen as they ure preparing to no lu the liirels' for Christmas dinner.

"The Whole Town's Laughing," a farce in three acts by Robert St. Clair was chosen for the class of l93El. The play moves very rapidly and has many laugh-provoking situations that pleased the audience. A brief synopsis of the story follows. The Brien-Moore family has been re- spected lzy the citizens of a midwestern summer resort town as the "best family" in town because of their noble birth, line ancestry, and their owning' of a large castle in Ireland. Douglas Brien-Moore, the son, is truly ancestor conscious. He has been rearcd to believe that he is just a little letter than every one else, ami he has always had just what his darling little heart desired. He is engaged to Doris Dutton, a bankei-'s daughter, a superior person. Arriving home from college, he has the props completely knocked from umltr him when his mother makes a con- fession that she has held back since his birth. llumiliatecl and chagrined by his niotht-r's confession, Douglas changes his attitude toward many people and things. The visit from a l'umi,us French Count and Countess causes Douglas much trouble and places him in a ticklish position. ln spite of the many obstacles, Douglas plants his feet firmly on the ground and in the end turns out to be an entirely dif- ferent chap.
