This year the Dramatics Club was run a bit differently. Under the supervision of
Miss Lucille Lee and a few Thespians, the twenty-five members of this club met to
learn and practice the techniques of acting.
Throughout the year, several one-act plays were given in arena style, to which
different home-rooms were invited. '
The Dramatics Club members also helped the Thespians put on "The Voice of
America" program in February.
The Thespian committee directing the club activities includes: Nicki Brandt, Alice
Coombs, Elise Linder, Marlene O'Neil and Judy Schwartz.

taking top honors. This was followed by patriotic
choral reading, "The Voice of America," with Alex
Papagan taking the role of the seer.
Inasmuch as this was the thirtieth anniversary of the National Thespian Society,
we held a formal initiation to which the parents of the members and the initiates were
invited. At this initiation we installed Mr. Andrew M. Lindsay as an honorary member.
Among the fourteen boys and girls initiated into the Rayen Thespian Troupe
were seniors Betty Randell, Malka Greenberger, Barbara Lipton and Sandra Tracey.
Juniors who earned their points were Jean Love, Nancy Gourley, and Ron White.
Pete Patrone, Paul Stetts, Tina Bucheit, Pam Wollison, Wally Hollander, Stanley Label
and Wayne Leebaw were the sophomores who made the grade.
The play chosen for production in the spring was "The Thread That Runs So
True" by Jesse Stuart.

Once again Le Cercle Francais, Senior French Club, held their monthly meeting
in a member's home. French was the language of the evening beginning with the

"bon soir"-good night.
The Christmas meeting was at the home of Josephine Robinson, whose parents
acted as hosts. Other meetings were held at the homes of Barbara Rifkin, Sue Sandler,
Jane lpp, Greta Davidson and Ernie Wilkoff.
Committees usually serve the refreshments. Among the programs have been
original plays, dramatizations of classroom stories, and contests using French proverbs
Working along with advisors, Miss Catherine Wary and Miss Florence Turowski,
are this year's fine team of officers: Josephine Robinson, president, Greta Davidson,
vice-president, Mark Tessler, treasurer, and Anita Thornton, secretary. Assistant
treasurers are Marcia Gurss and Diane Orze.
