With the announcement this week
by the play committee that an all
male cast, old time Negro minstrel
will he presented December 14 and
15, Rosemary will have its first op
portunity to see a show with a cast
selected entirely from the employ
ees. It will he high class enter
tainment with three opening scenes
and a circle. We will give you
more dope next week. ®

Sadie Hawkins Day was a big
success. Everybody seemed to en
joy the play, “It Happened In Dog
patch" and the dance afterwards
was a howling success. The play
committee did a good job.
_—n
Roger Cullom as Hairless Joe was
the hit of the show; so was Young
Mahaffey dressed as Lonesome
Polecat. Helen Stewart made a
charming Daisy Mae. Mrs. Mildred
Mills was an ideal Ma Yokum. Pa
Yokum, portrayed by Bryant Gray,
could have been no better. Misses
Butler and Moon were the berries
as Belinda Bargrease and Mitzi
Mudlark. Chester Allsbrook acted
a swell Mayor, George Outland was
a nifty Ole Man Mose, Eddie Cam
eron as the one and only Marryii.’
Sam did his job in fine style. Russ
Deberry demonstrated, that he can
act as well as win State Softball
titles by doing Li’l Abner to a
fare ye well. Pate Harris and Hank
Stew-art acted the Scraggs boys to
perfection. All in all it was a swell
show.
—o—
Many words of praise should be
said in regard to Mrs. Mildred
Mills and Mrs. Mabel Allsbrook for
directing the show. And to Byron
Gurley, Frank Everettc, Dick
“Swink” Lee, Red Carver, George
Gurley, the Roberts Brothers and
many others who handled the stage
decorations. It was a swell job.

Recreation Club members will be
making a big mistake if they do
not elect Rufus Mountford to the
Board of Directors for next year.
This corner is not entering any
campaign for Rufus, but any per
son who has had the interest that
he has shown during the past year
by being on duty every Friday and
Saturday night as a special officer
without pay and staying on until
midnight, is bound to be interested
in the club—therefore my reason
for saying he should be a director.
Now, I’ll have to fight Rufus!

Coach Steve Acai of Littleton
High School dropped by last night
to invite me up to that red hot tilt
Friday, Dec. 8, between Littleton
and Warrenton High School foot
ball teams. The game will be play
ed in Warrenton with outside of
ficials and interest is running at
fever heat in both towns. Steve,
who is a former N. C. State athlete,
is turning in a swell record at
Littleton as head coach. Take a
tip and see this game—it’ll be the
Carolina-Duke battle over again,
and then some!
A certain drug store around town
is pulling a swell stunt for kids by
having a Santa Claus on display
that really talks, and how! Many
adult faces are turning red at
cracks from Santa!
—o—
Dopey Dan says—thinking of
some people: “Boasters should re
member, though the rooster crows,
the hen produces results.” And re
garding Community Chest: “The
charity that begins at home and re
mains there is anemic. An occa
sional outing will do it good”. And
thinking of Santa Claus: “Do not
judge the inside of a Christmas
box by its wrapper”.
—n—
Rosemary Recreation takes a
great deal of pride in endorsing the
project put on by the City Fire
Dept., that of collecting and repair
ing broken toys for the little kid
dies in the city. If you have any
broken or used toys around that
you do not need, remember it will
probably make some kid happy at
Christmas time. So just sit down
and call R-355, and a fireman will
be right around, take them away,
repair them, repaint them and on
Christmas Eve give them to some
needy kid.
