The day for the great e\v t is
drawing near and the lines are be
coming more drawn under the eyes
of all the glee club members as
well as poor Miss Robinson! Of
course I mean the day for the
operetta is near at hand and ex
citement, nervousness, and fear
- reign supreme in the hearts and
minds of the cast.
The costumes came this past
Tuesday and I’m afraid no one
i did too much rehearsing while
they were being given out. Sara
Ann really has some beauties—
dresses I mean. One is so heavy
. that she can’t even take it home.
, If you’re one of those girls who is
. always wishing we could wear
. hoopskirts and the like because
l they look so pretty in pictures,
you’d change your mind quick
3 enough if you had to wear one of
t these costumes which come com
r plete with bustle and about a
1 dozen stiff petticoats. Melrose just
i couldn’t wait to try hers on, so
- she slipped into it, still wearing
c her sweater and skirt. “This
I jacket is too tight,” she exclaim
t ed, forgetting. that she would be
- the only thing in the costume that
I night. The boys sho’ do have some
[ classy get-ups. I saw Fred Hatch
r with a pair of multi-colored striped
- men’s unmentionables on. Of
course he had them on over his
ROTC uniform. And the fellas who
are sailors really do look cute fn
their little blue, double-breasted
j jackets and white slacks. All in
j all, tlie costumes are very color
. ful—and they seem to fit nicely.
> Water-guns seem to have the rul
. ing hand at school and even at
; operaetta practice. Poor Mary
> Catherine Davis really got soaked
> the other day. I know who the per
- son was who cornered her and did
r the shooting, but I won’t mention
5 any names. You can’t even walk’
. down the hall without getting shot
i —but its lots of fun! The salesgirl
i told me that they were for the
r little children to amuse themselves
1 with. It looks as if they have fallen
1 into the right hands!
I think I overheard a conversa
tion about an officer’s weiner
roast that was given this past
, Saturday night down at the south
’ ern end of the beach—known as
the Sugar Bowl. But I don’t seem
to bfe able to get any dope on just
what happened. Maybe I can snoop
around unnoticed during the week
and let you know later.
If you have been down to the
YMCA lately 'I haven’t) and you’ve
heard squeaks and groans coming
from the basketball court, just
rest assured it’s our team work
ing out crinks received from
too much concentration in class.
It’s probably the members of the
basketball team of 1929 who are
getting in shape to play the ’Cats
of ’46. The game will take place
Thursday night, February 28, at
8 o’clock in the High school gym.
Come early and get a good seat

This week my orchids go pointly
to Mr. West and his wood-working
crew who built the beautiful wheel
for the good ship “New Moon” and
Miss Lossen and the members of
her art classes who have done
such a wonderful job with the
scenery. Jhe wheel has been on
lobby of NHHS and as many in
display for the past few days in the
quisitive students have found out
it really works.
It looks like all of my news this
time is about the operetta, but at
present it is the event which ^
uppermost in the minds of students
as well as faculty. It is to be
staged Thursday afternoon, Febru
ary 28, at 3 o’clock and on Friday
night March 1, at 8 o’clock. Both
performances will take place at
the High school. Be sure to see
the biggest hit of the month—and
maybe the year—“New Moon”,
produced by the members of the
glee club under the direction of
Miss Sarah Robinson.
There are a few more facts
known about other happenings in
our crowd, but they’re being kept
til the week-end when I may be
able to add to them. Until Sunday
then, “So long!”
