The annual high school operetta has
been chosen. "Tulip Time" Is the name
of the play. The subject of the play
is a little different than usual, this be
ing a Dutch play.
The cast has not been definitely Dick-
ed and will be announced later.
The theme of the story follows:
The village, enjoying a holiday, is
startled by the arrival of a party of
American tourists, college students un
der the leadership of Professor McSpin
dle. a tutor in botany, to study tulip
culture. Two of the party, Ned nad
Dick, are much more interested in
Christina and her friend Katinka. News
reaches the village that a thief has
been stealing choice bulbs of prize
tulips and a handbill describes the thief
and offers a reward for his capture.
Ned and Dick induce McSpindle to
wear certain clothing answering the de
scription of the thief. When the burgo
master beholds McSpindle so attired
he causes his arrest. With McSpindle
out of the way, Ned and Dick promote
their friendship with the girls and learn
that Christinas stock is, unknown to
ner, 01 immense value. They reveal
the truth to her and thwart the Burgo
master's attempt to grow rich at her
expense. With the assistance of Chris
tina's Aunt Anna, the innocence of Mc
Spindle is established and the latter de
clares his affection for her; and with
the prospect of a triple wedding, the
flnal curtain falls.
A contest between the English stu
dents is being conducted by Mrs. Smith.
The students are writing on the life
and achievements of Abraham Lincoln,
the reward for the best theme being a
bronze medal given by the Illinois
Watch company. The papers will be
judged this week and the medal will
be given away next week.
