ADVERTISEMENTS •♦48 ( Continued from page 123) 1 9 2 7 MISS TRIPP IN PAPER, (Good heavens I haven’t written a thing in here for over a year. But then, there hasn’t been anything special worth writing about. Oh well — I mean her picture was.) The September faculty is going to give a play next Friday 26 and Saturday. The name of the play is “Tweedles”. The proceeds (if there are any) go to the Students’ Scholarship fund. Miss Tripp is the “director”, that’s why she had her picture in the paper. WEST HIGH ALUMNI TO HOLD REUNION. Tomorrow at 12:30 the alumni are going to start their reunion. West graduated its first class in 1906, which gave it five or six alumni. It has been adding December to them ever since until now it has 2,763 of 21 ’em. When I get out in another half a’ dozen years or so, it will have another one. 1928 FORMER WEST HIGH STUDENTS AMONG NEW PHI BETA’S. They’ve just announced the election of four men, and twelve women, from the U. of R. to Phi Beta Kappa. Four of them were graduates April from West, Arthur A. Moehlman, Adelaide 25 E. Dorn, Florence E. Swinburne, and Dorothy Wellington. I’d say we were pretty well represented. ‘THANK YOU’ IS VERY PLEASING. I mean the Junior play was. It was simply delicious. LeRoy Gates was a “preacher” in it, and he sure knew his sermons. Phyllis Holton was a “coy French April maid” who “got her man”, and how she 28 did! Ray Doyle was the “man”—with lots of money. Oh, Man! And Bob Metzdorf was a drunk. I never saw anything so funny. He ought to go on the stage. I mean he really had! The rest of the cast was Marcia Randall, Evelyn Millner, Betty Brigham, Jean Boyd, Dick Bennett, Bob Fagan, Burton Schaefer, Slater Conn, Alfred Delgado, Raymond Barker, Bob McCormack, Bob Leinen, and Franklyn Hutchinson. OCCIDENT ISSUES SCANDAL SHEET! They have finally printed their “Dusty Mirror” and is it good?! It’s perfectly hilarious. On the front page they had Mr. Spinning advocating hooped-skirts. Im- June agine! Inside they had the craziest stuff, a 9 faculty elopement (which wasn’t true of course), a picture of an auto, taken about twenty years ago, that they said was Mr. Bennett s new car, a picture of Wilfred Despard who was supposed to be a mumbledy-pegger, and perfectly screaming articles about Marble’s Marble Team, and Sauer’s Sling-shot Shooters.

Autographs •♦ 9 19 2 8 ( ' Continued from page 125) ANGEVINE HAS CROSS COUNTRY OUT. That sounds as if the country was cross, but what I really mean is he called out the squad. Don Lyons was telling me about it. He said they’d have only four September “letter men” left, but that there was some ip good new material, and we ought to have a pretty good season. Ed Pike and George Leadley are booking the opposition. ORANGE AND BLACK RETAIN SOCCER TRO¬ PHY. Whoopee! Maybe we aren’t good, and there was a marvelous piece in the Occident, two whole pages, with the whole history of the season in it. November It told all about who was who, and why. 20 who was on the team, who had been injured, and so forth. We only had one defeat this year. I bet next year we won’t have any! and did you ever?! “Mike” says he’s going to give every one on the team a banana-split, for winning! ‘SIGN HERE PLEASE’ SIGNAL SUCCESS. Well, here’s our senior play that really is good. I mean was. It was last night. Every thing about it was the best ever. It had the cleverest plot, and the December acting was smooth! Ruth Line played S Honor Bright, that’s the heroine, and she was perfectly darling. Bob McCormack was one handsome hero, too. The key character was “Mrs. Barrington”, and was played by Adelaide Geraghty. She certainly was marvelously clever! The Rt. Rev. William Carton, and his wife, were “rendered” (I love that word) by Raymond Barker, and Phyllis Holton. Evelyn Millner had the role of Tot Marvel. Jean Boyd was hilariously funny as the cook. Every one in it or connected with it certainly deserves a big bouquet. BASKET BALL SCHEDULE ISSUED. They an¬ nounced the basket ball schedule for the season, today. December 7, West vs. Tech, at the Armory; December 21, West vs. Marshall, at Marshall; the December alumni game; January 4, West vs. Charlotte, 19 at West; January 8, West vs. Monroe at West; January 11, West vs. East, at the Armory; January 18, West vs. Tech, at Tech; February 1, West vs. East, at the Armory; February 8, West vs. Marshall, at West; February 15, West vs. Charlotte, at Charlotte; February 20, West vs. Monroe, at Monroe; February 27, West vs. U. of R. Frosh, at the U. of R. Gym. I saw the game Friday, 7, it wasn’t so good. I sure hope the rest are more exciting. AND NOW WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN? Exams are over! But, oh! well, I’m glad they’re over, any way. They gave me grey hairs, they really did. They were absolutely awful. Regents! But even January so, expecting them was the worst part of it. 23 But I’m through, comfortably, and I guess I’ll get my little diploma, all right. So “No More Worrying”. I guess this will be about the last thing I’ll write about West, and I don’t think I’m awfully glad, either - Page one hundred twenty-seven
