"Firms Muon FATHER
On Saturday evening, February-18, 1935, the Junior Class
presented nFixing It For Fatheru, a three act comedy,
The play took place in the Risdon household--home of Pro-
fessor Risdon and his two daughters, with Aunt Lize in care
of the home. Dick Cunard, Professor Risdon's brother-in-law,
lived next door where his sister-in-law, Em a Blanchard, kept
house for him and his small daughter.
The plot of the play was centered around some letters
which Dick had been writing to an actress whose name he had
gotten from an advertisement in a newspaper. In these letters
he had promised to marry the widow, Fanchon La Vonde, Because
Dick was afraid that Em a would open the letters Fanchon wrote
to him, he had them sent in care of the Professor, using the
When the actress came to the Risdon home, the two daugh-
ters, Elinor and Beatrice, having found the letters beforehand,
tried to wget ridu of her. Finally they managed to switch her
off on Harold Merton, a stuttering boy who had come from the
South with his father, with the intention of marrying Elinor.
The third act ended with Elinor and Beatrice setting the
dates for their weddings with Jack and Harryg Harold marrying

Hard work, regular practice, and living the part usually
produces a good play. This was found to be true by the mem-
bers of the Senior Class when they gave their play four weeks
after they had selected it.
The date March the 31st was set, giving two weeks for
memorization and two for rehearsal.
The night the Nlade Godn was produced, the auditorium
was filled. Some even stood during the whole play because of
the shortage of seats. Praise certainly must he given to
Lula Wagoner, the Business Manager, for the countless hours
she spent on handbills, directing the pester campaign, etc.
nThis is the first time that stage did not luck like a
stage.n This was heard from many persons.
The longest part, by far was that of Derrick, played by
Bruce Towne, who certainly did some splendid memorization.
Jane Caughey, as Peters, had but a few lines, yet she
was busy prompting at all rehearsals and even prompted the
night of the production.
Inspector Burke, the detective, was the part taken by
Henry Kuch. He was one of those Wold schocl detectives who
did not believe in finger prints or modern methods of crime
A character part, that of Perkins, added deep mystery and
'thrills to the play. Although the part was the direct opposite
of Ida Ferrel, she played her part wells Those eyes, that dead-
ly calm face, and those slow mysterious actions certainly facin
ated the audience.
Walter Hopkins did very well the he has had no dramatics.
The gardener, Martin, was supposed to be queer like Perkins,
yet he certainly kept the crawd guessing.
Blunt, the Oriental, acted by Quincy Sorrell, was some-
thing different from the parts in any of the plays given here
before. As a hypnotist Qainey 'took the fakw.U A character
part it was, and a difficult one. but he made the audience sit

Please do not think I am tooting my own trumpet too much,
because I was especially asked to write this up. lThat's no
Fool 's Joke, either. I
WThe Jade Godn was given on March Sl, so all cleanup work
had to be done Saturday, April l. When practice had first
started, we, the Seniors, set the dates for the production and
the clean-up. Miss Reister especially asked that we don't
play an April Foo1's joke and not come to help at all. X
My honorable classmates thought they were off. .SM
pretty good ldon't hit mel, so I decided to oaflxfff
play one against them, and fp-r. Miss Reister J bg?
and myself. When our adviser was out of 7132! cf- 1,1
the class meeting for a short while, I TJ 4
told the other Seniors of my plan to still iffU'IFig?2s
play a joke on Miss Reister, by all com- c.-f
ing early and doing all the cleaning be- " v0
fore she got there. It was enthusiastically accepted.
To make a long story short, on the night of the play we
set the time to come for cleanup as late as possible fl9:00l.
Then I gave the Seniors the wink and passed along the word to
be there at 8:30 or 9:00. I proceeded to sleep till about
10:00, while the others didn't.
As a result, they ganged me and gave me the Nspatsn, but
the joke was still on them. The only kink in my plans was
that Miss Reister camebefore 10:00, so she got in on the joke
--and the spatting,too.
Later, Mrs. Coppock brought over a basket of cookies and
passed a plateful around. To our surprise, we found there
was waxed paper inside of them. The funniest part was that
Mac ate almost all of his cookie--and paper--before the joke
was discovered. Mrs. Coppock then gave us some without paper
which tasted just as gpod but weren't ntoughn. Now laugh that
off, you other Seniors!
