The time draws near for the high
school all student body play, "I Will!
I Won’t!”, which will be presented
by members of the student body
March 28th, in the Oasis theatre.
The director is Miss Jessie B. Brier­
ley. The cast, which consists ot
lower classmen, shows great pro­
mise along the line ot play acting.
The plot—Just read it!
This farce-comedy in three acta,
occurs in the evening. The action
takes place in the living room of a
girls’ dormitory. Anthony calls him­
self a “chocolate-fudge doctor" be­
cause his work as medical attendant
to a group of health college girls
seems idiotic as contrasted with his
ambition to establish a hospital for
crippled children. But Anthony finds
his job more interesting when he
stumbles on a mystery. He is called
to attend Lucile, and he recognizes
that the injured girl is not Lucile
but a stranger impersonating her.
He learns that she is Lucile’s cou-
sin, Joan, who has consented to the
masquerade to earn money for art
lessons, and that Lucile is off attend­
ing a forbidden party. Caught by
Joan’s pluck and charm. Anthony
assists in the impersonating, there­
by jeopardizing both his beloved
dream of a hospital and his imme­
diate livelihood. For, hoping to win
Anthony, one of the co-eds has per-
suaded her father to help finance
the hospital, and she has no inten­
tion of feathering a nest for Joan.
There's the dual role ot Lucile
and Joan. Georgette, the colored
maid,, is the maid ordinary and the
diplomat extraordinary. There are
two smart co-ed roles, loyal, lovely
Lyn and tempermental Glad. Other
roles are: the majestic grandame,
Mrs. Stevens; the dignified dean of
women; an Impressive lawyer; a ge­
nial man about town; a lah-de-dah
man-about-college; and there's An­
thony.
Although it was outstanding both
in plot and acting, the high school
thinks that this play, “I Will! I
Won’t!", which illustrates so truth­
fully human nature will equal the
one, Yimmle Yohnson. given by
them two years ago. The surest and
best way to prove this is to attend
this production which will be held
in the Oasis theatre on March 28, at
8.00 P. M.

ted by Miss Dailey, will make its

Members of the Hermiston Am­
erican Legion Post No. 37 were boats
to Commander Joseph Chamberlain,
Department of Oregon, at a district
meeting Friday night, March 15, at
which Legionnaires were present
from Heppner, Ione, Umatilla, Stan­
field, Echo and other nearby towns.
After opening the meeting Com­
mander Sam Moore of the local poet
turned the meeting over to District
Commander Bob Taylor of Milton
who addressed the assembly on work
being done in the district. HA in
turn, introduced Jerry Owen. editor
of the Legionnaire, who gave an out­
line of the Leglog's activities during
the last session of the legislature at
Salem. The state department inter­
ested itself in bills pertaining to
child welfare, world war veterans
state aid commission funds and poli-
cies, and other legislation affecting
veterans of the state. Owen paid a
tribute to Department Commander
Chamberlain who was in the avia­
tion corps for the United States
torces in France during the World
'War, when he said, "Chamberlain
took part In one of the longest
flights made by American fliers over
enemy lines, coming down on that
occasion Just back of the French
lines with part of his plane shot
away by enemy anti-aircraft fire."
In an absorbing talk lasting well
over an hour, Commander Chamber­
lain outlined the birth of the Ameri­
can Legion and gave a historical re-
view of the Legion's fight for ad­
justed compensation. He told how,
on a February day In 1919, three
officers chatting over their wine
glasses In Paris, decided an organi­
zation should be formed of veterans
to carry on the work of the G.A.R.
These officers, broadcast a call1 for
representatives from military orga­
nizations in A.E.F. to meet in can-
cus and this meeting was held in
Paris on March 15 of that year.
Some 1500 veterans were granted
leave to attend this caucus but only
500 took the matter seriously enough
to attend. However, at that meeting
was born the greatest organization
