In the presentation of "The Scarecrow Creeps," the senior class
maintained its reputation for excelling. XY"eird blood-curdling
screams, shadowy phantom scarectows, and chairs which rocked by
mysterious means offered an evening of intense excitement.
The "Clarita" diamond was the object around which the plot
revolved. Anthony Gage, its owner, was believed to have been
wronged by Roderick, his cousin, who desired its possession
Thirty years after the theft, the time of the play, Roderick dis-
closed that the diamond is still hidden in Gage Manor.
The scarecrow, believed to be Anthony's ghost seeking Rode-
rick, somehow spirited him away. Roderick's ghostly-being, So the
relatives thought, returned and forced a confession from Adam
Throgg, his butler: thus, clearing his name. Then Roderick showed
himself perfectly safe and alive.
Under the direction of Mr. Zylstra, the members of the cast
portrayed their respective roles very fittingly. The combined ef-
forts of the various committees contributed much to the success of

"Almost Eighteen!" That was the stage production in
form of a riotous comedy by Dana Thomas. Through Mr.
Zylstra's direction, this play was a great success.
The plot became rather complicated when our "almost
eighteen" youth, Eddie, played by Eugene Hoffert, had
ideas about becoming a successful crooner like Crosby. He
must earn his own money for the completion of his ambi-
tions to go away to school, for his father opposed them.
His troubles began when he decided to enter a contest.
His uncle George meant to aid him, but accidentally he
sent the wrong manuscript which was really copied from
There was great excitement until all was finally straight-
ened out, and Eddie was cleared of this suspected treachery.

"How wonderful is the laurmm mire. Il is indeed the organ
of the soul." -- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
The great need of America today is unity of spirit and the
dedication of self to a great common cause. Music is a form of
spiritual expression which of itself creates spiritual values and helps
to bring about spiritual union. We dedicate ourselves in songs be-
cause we can sing in our souls things we cannot find words to say
The Boys' Chorus, composed of approximately forty voices
under the direction of Mrs. G. E. Engelien, finds that they are able
to put unlimited zeal and enthusiasm into their songsg and they
prove that singing together brings people together.
The outstanding event of the season in which this group parti-
cipated was the Spring Festival. The Boys' Quintette sang at the
Kent County Luncheon.
No one knows what these boys will have to endure before this
war is over. lf we have given them some enjoyable hours and lifted
their spirits through this singing of music, then it was worth all
the effort involved to maintain such organizations. Music will add
much to the moral strength of the nation, at a critical hour, when
the strength of America is the hope of the world.
Bo s' Chorus
