Coach Keene has long been an

players had used a territory sys

his first two years at the local

able, "The Road to Yesterday,"
four-act fantasy which the high
school student body will present
at the auditorium Friday night,
will be the year's outstanding play
production of the students.
The logic Is like this: To begin
with, the play had to be set ahead
a full week because the auditori
um was needed for Inter-collegiate
debates next week. But that
didn't daunt the 13 players. Then,
for one reason and another, no
assembly was open for an advertis

sponsible for cancellation of the
customary parade preceding a high
But there's one ray of sunshine,
and Mrs. Bernice S. Duncan who
is coaching the play is emphatic
about it: With 13 students abso
lutely new to the high school stage
she has moulded one of the best
balanced and splendid casts to be
seen here in several years.
The play, written by Dix and
Sutherland, is a comedy-fantasy
with tense moments and plenty of
dramatic action, yet sufficient
comedy to please those who love
to laugh. Briefly, it is the story of
a group of modern "young things"
who, gathered in a studio, begin to
wonder in Bomewhat breezy fash
Ion what they might have been
and done centuries ago. The idle
talk "gets" Elspeth Tyrrell (WH
da Fleener) who has made herself
ill "doing London," and she falls
asleep but to dream of the 17th
century England, with her friends
and relatives becoming some sur
prisingly ludicrous characters of
the former day. Her dream occu
pies much of the action of the
play and, of course, is responsi
ble for the romance evident in the
final scenes. The dream scenes are
presented In costume.
