Seniors start on trip to Mackinaw Island. .Yen br C7455 Play The stage was set for a western dude ranch as the curtains opened on Friday night, November 20, to find the seniors performing on the stage for the last time in their high school career. During an hour's time the seniors were made to appear as adults with the use of stage make up,beards, wigs, and old clothes. The three-act play was filled with laughter and excitement from start to finish. The play involved nearly all the guests and hired help at the ranch in a deal about gold and prop- erty. As the title suggested, Old Charlie came along to settle the whole thing. Old Charlie's appearance on crutches was accidental, but gave added effect to the part. Tall and slender Buck Rainey and Pete Williams were typical cowboys. The highlight of the first act came as Gail Marshall played up to bashful Pete just to get some information about a piece of land. The first act ended as Buck hit Bard Bart- lett on the jaw for slapping Jane Russell. Rocky Williams nearly had a baked potato stuffed down his throat for teasing his brother about Gail. Allen Mitchell, Bard and Gail got Mr. Nibley to sign papers for the land, but they were forced to leave hen Charlie proved them wrong. Jane and Buck showed a liking for each other as the curtain closed on the last act. Between the first and second acts, Marilyn Horn sang two songs, accompanied at the piano by Anna- belle Feiler.

Back in Tekonsha he is a typical Indian. 49 'If you want a job done well, ask a busy person to do lt." That person is Annabelle Feiler, an assistant editor who also finds time for music and class activities. The staff photo- grapher snapped our efficient and capa- ble editor as she was dashing around ff -. for annual news. vi! It was the aim of the staff this year to give you, the subscribers, a better, bigger yearbook. Much hard work and time was given by all members of the staff as well as our adviser, Mrs. Snyder. If you get some enjoyment from looking through this book, we shall feel that our goal has been reached. Have you been wondering who the Big Chief Photographer was? Well, here he is, Mr. R. G. Sutula from Indiana,w1th Supt, Snyder. The smiles on our adviser's face indicates how pleased she was when the annual was com- pleted. Her many helpful ideas I made the annual a success.
