Benefit Show
Nets SBS for
School Soup Fund
0
Despite the downpour of rain
Monday night the Kiwanis soup
fund benefit performance at the
school house was well patronized.
The house was comfortably well
filled and there were nunierous tick
ets sold to people who did not at
tend the performance.
The show itself was not too had.
As a matter of fact the performers
did themselves proud. It was a mus
ical comecw in two parts, the leads
being played by Mrs Urban Koelker
and Vane Wilder. Mrs. Koelker took
the part of Sippy, the captain‘s
daughter and Mr. Wilder the part
of Hal, the colonel’s son. Both have
nice voices and carried their parts
well. 1
E. s. Black took the part of the
captain and handled the, part (al
though not the pipe) well, especially
so since he took the part with only
ten days notice, after two others had
been unable to go ahead with it.
Corston Green really ran away
with the show in the part of Slatts.
barker on the showboat. His hypno
tism stunts played one or the prin
cipal parts in the plot. We predict
that Mr. Green will have first call
on comedy parts in future home tal
ent performances here. ‘
Mrs. Chellis, blacked up, made an
excellent Cleopatra negro mammy
cook on the boat. She was in good
voice and made a pleasing perform
ance.
Ed Neuman played the part of the
Colonel, rich local banker, the real
villain in the sketch. ‘
Mrs. Frank Maupin, as Martha
Frisbee, made a hit with the aud
ience, especially after she had been
transformed into the Queen of
Sheeba. .
“The Girl in Green—a widow
from St. Louis” played by Mrs. Love
furnished much of the comedy and.‘
the part was well taken. 1
Floyd 1111th as the hick sheriff
withthebigshinystarcouldn‘tkeep
his grandpappy out of his conver
sation, and apparently made a big
hit, for he was the only player to
receive flowers from the audience
at least they looked like flowers
from the back of the hall. Of course,
they might have been vegetables.
Bentley Galilean, blase and soph
isiticated, played his part well, as
did Mrs. aamgan. taking the part
of Kate Smith, a local flapper.
Miss Betty Howard took the part
of Doris, a. romantic girl, strong for
Slatts the sideshow barker. She
did a clever tap dance between
verses in Slatt’s solo.
Ed Webber played the part of
Tom, the disappointed shiek, while
John Neuman took the part of Hap
py, witless subject or Slatts’ hypnot
ic experiments. The part was well
carried out and furnished the so
lution for the rather thin plot of
the show.
Others taking part in the present
ation were the chorus of girls, in
cluding Vivian Higley, Jean Long,
Irene Lum, Ruth Beinhart. Lois
Giard and Jane Nagley. The pick
anninny chorus was composed of
Eve Neil, Neva Neil, Margaret Ab
kin, Gladys Kempt, Jean Osborne
and Maxine Kirk.
Miss Eva Elefson was accompan
ist for the shiw.
A novel feature was the pipe or
gan prelude which was played by
Ed Neuman and carried by wire to
the school's public address system.
Somewhere in the neighborhmd
of SBS was cleared.

Senior Play to be
Given on Friday
of Next Month
The senior play. “The Whole
Town's Talking,” Will be presented
in the high school auditorium Fri
day evening, December 3 at 8 o’-
clock; The play is a royalty com
edy written by John Emerson and‘
Anita Loos. This brilliant farce
ran an entire season in New York
with Grant Mitchell as the star and
has become probably the most pop
ular play ever produced by ama
teurs. One director is said to count
ed 374 laughs during a single per
formance.
The story of the play deals with
a Mr. Simmons, who has a theory
that every woman wants the man
that every other woman wants and
conceives a plan of inventing a few
love affairs for the unromatic
Chester. But with whom?_ From
a book shop they select at random
some photographs of beautiful wo
men and select the one of Letty
Lythe, the movie star. Letty is se
lected and in no time at all'the
whole town’s talking with the girls
falling for Chester right and left.
In the midst of his glory Letty
comes to town, accompanied by her
prize-fighter finance and then the
fun really begins. The cast of 12

Home Economics
Instructor Talks
on School Work
Mlle Viola Sykes. home economics
instructor in the local Junior-Ben
ior hlgh school. gave a very inter
esting talk before the Parent-Teach
ers meeting which was held in the
school auditorium recently. Her
subject was “Home Economics in
the School.” and the following is
her talk in general.
One school superintendent has
aid that Home Economics for the
young people of today has within it
the greatest single opportunity of
any phase of instruction to meet the
needs oi.’ society in that it teaches
ways and means to become more
successtul members of society.
Whether or not you agree with
this statement it will be conceded
that Instruction which tit; the
youth of today to become better
members of their families and no

Many years no objective: in
Home Economics instruction were

Home at one time were both the
