Gy eniors Jcoi ' e CP ' ishnci Glass 9l ay “THE POOR NUT " DRAWS SECOND PACKED HOUSE FRIDAY EVENING The members of the Senior Class of the Pulaski High School assisted by members from the Junior Class gave their second presentation of “The Poor Nut,” a comedy of modern youth, in three acts at the Jefferson School Auditorium, Friday night. This play was staged by the Senior Class for the benefit of the Oriole, the Pulaski I ligh School year book, and a nice little sum has been realized and will be used in helping defray the expenses of the publication of the high school annual. ' This play, which is far above the average staged by high school performers, was se- cured at the expense of a heavy royalty and was staged and directed by “Doc " Harman and Miss Frances Rosenblatt, Oriole Sponsor. Much of the success of the play is due to the untiring efforts of these two. The first act is laid in the University bookstore in which “The Poor Nut " was employed at spare times. The time was in June about the season of the annual track meet, in which Ohio State and Wisconsin were the leading contenders for honors. Here began a sym- pathetic friendship of Marjorie Blake, a college girl, who came to the book store to gain experience in the course as librarian that she was pursuing at the university, with the “Poor Nut” that culminated into a real love affair in the third act. The scenes in the second act revolved around the athletic field at which the races were to be held. After some of the leading athletes of Ohio State had been disqualified, the “Poor Nut” was pressed into ser- vice, despite his protests, ending up in his capturing the relay races for Oh io State. The third act whose scenes were laid in the living room of the Psi Sigma house, which was staging a reception and in which the happy ending of the romance between Marjorie Blake and the “Poor Nut” was shown, brought the comedy to a close. It would be hard indeed to pick individual stars of the play, as the performing of each one of the participants was good and was eagerly followed by the large crowd that filled the auditorium. Harold Beamer, as the “Poor Nut,” carried his part well throughout the entire performance, amply taking care of the many complex situations in which he was placed. Miss Mozelle Dalton, taking the part of Marjorie Blake a college girl, with her sympathetic and deep interest in the “Poor Nut,” played her part well. Miss Wilma Berry, as Julia Winters, a Wisconsin co-ed, handled her part with the ease and grace of a well groomed performer. The other minor parts played by the members of the cast showed the thorough training they had received and handled their respective parts with ease. It was one of the best plays that has ever been staged by a local high school troupe. Music was furnished by Misses Elizabeth and Martha Cox. 1 he members of the Senior Class are very grateful to “Doc” Harman, who has always shown his interest in the productions of the school, and to Miss Frances Rosenblatt, who was untiring in her efforts to make the play a success. - — The Southwest Times. 141
