A Trial of Hearts.
The senior class of the Unl .n City
High School gave their annual play
before a large audience in the audi
torium of the high school building
Monday night. The parts were well
played, as was evidenced by the ap
plause received from the audience.
The play, "A Trial of Hearts," is wo
ven into a story of school life, and
has for its central figures the prin
cipals of a true-love affair. The
scion of a family of wealth and po
sition is married to a ranchman's
daughter, wljom, on a summer vaca
tion he falls in love with. Then the
old story of a proud and indignant
mother and the social marplots to
separate the young couple. Here
are introduced some other charac
ters and incidents of a lighter and
humorous vein to relieve the intensi
ty of the situation and to contribute
to the dramatic force of the play.
The lovers are separated and then
comes the denouement &ad a happy
ending. There were tw or more
names entitled to special praise, but
every part was well sustained and
the play throuout was a complete
triumph of school dramatics. The
costumes were especially charming,
There was special music between the
acts by Gladys Jones, E. H. Conde,
Ernest Wu li and R-ifus Massey.
