To Present Play
By MARGARET SCOTT
The juniors and seniors of Lex
ington high school will present the
rollicking three-act comedy, "A
Poor Married Man," in the high
school auditorium, Friday, March
28, at 8 p. m.
The story of the play takes you
to a college town in the middle
west, where Professor John B. Wise
has married a charming young lady
named Zoie. Her mother, Mrs. Iona
Ford, insists on accompanying the
pair to their new home.
The professor's friends mistake the
mother-in-law for the bride, and
there the fun begins. Believe us,
every one is going to get a bushel
of laughs. This play is very excit
ing because of the natural conditions
that arise and it also has its ser
ious moments especially when the
professor finds out that his wife is
going to poison him.
A young college boy named Billy
and a pretty reporter add to the
professor's growing suspicions. The
young bride learns that she really
loves Billy and this is the begin
ning of a surprise and happy ending.
There is never a dull moment
through the entire three acts. With
grand parts for each member of the
cast, brightliness and witty sayings
are common for Jupiter Jackson, the

Electric block signals ... the "traffic lights" of the great
railroad systems . . . speed millions of tons of national defense
materials safely over the rails every minute of the day and night.
These signals must not fail! Troops, munitions and supplies
must move on schedule !
That is why railroad managers are happy that their electric
service comes from the vast interconnected grid of private
power systems . . . instead of from small, isolated power plants
serving but one city or county
POWER GRID HELPS ALL INDUSTRY!
Supplying dependable electric service to railroad signals is but
one example of the important part the power grid plays in
national defense. All along the 42,000 miles of electrically
controlled tracks new factories are springing up, established
plants are working overtime on defense orders. These indus
tries, whether large or small, are getting all the electric power
they need, when they need it. The network of transmission lines
can bring power from manv different sources to supply the
abnormal needs of any area.
WE HAVE 3 TIMES POWER OF AXIS:
Because private power systems have always built ahead of
actual demand, there is plenty of reserve capacity for use in
national defense. America today has four and one-half times
the electric generating capacity it had in 1917 ... or three times
as much power as Germany and Italy combined.
PRIVATE CAPITAL BUILT 90 I
Private capital and the American spirit of free enterprise
has built more than 90 of these extensive power facilities . . .
without subsidy from the public treasury. Only 5 of the na
tion's power has been created by municipal systems, only 5
by the federal government.
PRIVATE POWER SYSTEMS ARE READY NOW WITH ABUNDANT, DEPENDABLE POWER
..there is no need to divert one dollar of Public funds from the building of planes, tanks, guns, ships!
