TtckeU for the Sock Island high
school senior class play, A Pair
Of Sixes," to be held May 6 and 7
in the Illinois theatre, are now -on
sale. The seniors were all given
tickets, as were many of the nn
der-claasmen as well.
Last year the senior play brought
about 50O clear profit to the class
or 11. as the expenses tide year
probably will be a little greater,
not quite so much is expected to be
cleared. The money made from
the elasr play will go to pay for
the Watch Tower pieturas sod oth
er senior expenses. Last year for
the first time the senior class play
really cleat ed a lot of money. With
this as an example the graduating
class this spring is endeavoring to
make its piay a naanciai success.
Work Hard.
Rehearsals are being held every
afternoon after school and several
evenings a week. The cast of this
year's play has so far worked hard
er than many of the costs of pre
vious years, and if work has any
thing to do with a play, "A Pair of
Sixes" ought to be a whirlwind.
I hereby give notice that I will
not be responsible for debts con
tracted by any one other than my
self after this date.
