Our Home Basketball games this year were tremendously enlivened by the color of hand music. From its position on the bleachers in the gym it urged the team on with such songs as "Victory March" and "Locomotive Song." Without the Marching Band a game would seem only half won. This year's band has the reputation of being the best in its entire history. A great part of the success of the Marching Band this year was due to the fine spirit of the members themselves. They rehearsed once a week and gave up much of their time to produce the effects which have been admired by all. We can Well note that this beneficial organization while providing the school with excellent entertainment and school spirit, is developing at the same time musical experience for its members. - ENN ALMA 1 CONCERT BAND First Row:-fleft to right!-Nancy Klein, Dick Dickersin, Albert Leader, Molly Hammer, Barbara Corbin, Beverly Boone.

So she buys a second-hand jalopy and they start out with Tish doing the driving, however, Lizzie has wired Tishfs young nephew, Charlie Sands, telling him of his aunt's latest escapade and advising him of their destination. Charlie flies to the Southwest and stops at the "Eagle Hotel." Shortly afterward Lizzie and Aggie corne limping in, Tish arrives in due time and trys to explain everything, but to no avail. There is great suspense and excitement right up until the final curtain, as Tish gets everybody around her into and out of more jams than you can shake a stick at. -FRENN ALMA IUNIOR PLAY CAST Front Row:-tleft to right!-Lila Hartman, Helen Smith, Melba Yeager, Barbara Corbin, Jean Meek, Jane Griffith.

Attractive Gwen Ralston is engaged to Bob. Mable and Sable are two "gold-diggers" who are misunderstood by the very gulible Mrs. Ralston. Gwen, Bob's fiance, asks Bob to double Sl0,UUO which she has raised to donate to Bishop Doran's children. Bob bets the money against that ol Ralston, Dick and Van, that he will tell the truth for Z4 hours.
