mil. Irwin, nronertv rnan for the
coming high school play, "The Rejuv
enation of Aunt Mary." has quite a
difficult matter on his hands In the
first act when he has to depict an elec
trical storm with lightning, rain and
thunder all at the same time. How
ever, he says that he has already fig
ured out how he will arrange things
n the audience will think that Jack
and Betty have Just come in out of a
torm. If the storm was ail ne naa to
do, Ellis would not worry, but in addi
tion, he has to get a large number of
nrnnertles and several assistants to
move them. He Is very busy getting
ih nrnnerties together and we feel
confident that he will have them all
there when the day that the play is to
be given comes around.

If you are looking for a maid and

The Freshmen are always said to be
the most timid class in school but this

good time, because when the fact Is

"Oh, we had a swell time!" and then
approach another topic.
The Juniors have been making a
