HARRIS NofGuilfyWas Verdict In Play A flill house greeted seniors in their class play "Night of January 16th", at the rising curtain Friday evening at the high school auditorium. Action of, the play was centered on the trial of Karen Andre (played by Maxine Reimers) who was being tried for murder. As the spectators arrived at the school house several seniors' stationed at the doors and in the halls asked persons at random, whether they would serve on Hie jury. The names were taken of those who said they would, and it was by this means that jurors were selected from the audience. Not until his name was called did the juror know he was to be I impaneled. .Those who qualified were: H. C. Johannsen, Harriet Vin- :ng, Dick Furst, Verdell Riodel, Phyllis Kain, W. H. Meyer, Irene Drager, T. H. Vaughn,' Verona Buss, Mrs. Frank Lewis, Rev. Gilbert Kuyper, and Eliza Anglo. The seriousness with Which the audience jury assumed its responsibility added much to the ntcrest and effectiveness of the unusual school play. When the jury retired to deliberate the Rev. Mr. Kuyper was elected foreman. The verdict, fol- owing several ballots was 'not guilty'. The jurors were paid 50c each 'or serving. Seniors not previously named vho assisted in staging the play wore:Meta Oldaker, assistant to the director; Alice Ann Vaughn, costume chairman: Stanley Brown, Dclmar Kern, Amos Meyer, am Wally Hill stage committee: Doi French, electrician; Vida Land horst and Beverly Jean Kain house managers: Joan Wolcdt and Audrey Voyles, propert- crew.

Add a flavor they like—and your children will eat their vegetables with real enthusiasm. And how children, love the flavor of Buttor—golden butter so rich in the vitamins they need. Yes, the matchless flavor of Butter does so much for the appetite appeal of other foods. Its natural gold- • en color comes from rich golden cream—and it takes four pints of cream to make a pound of butter. For nutrition, for health, for downright goodness, Butter is still one of the greatest values your money can buy.
