Jack Loot't, president of the junior class, acted as toastmaster and welcomed their guests. Donald Johnson, president of the senior class, gave the response. Donna Bratrud gave the class prophecy after which Dorothy Os- boi;n played a cornet solo. Donna Moore read the class will which was followed by a piano solo played by Delores Wilberg. Supl. WetzliT, who was then introduced, gave very interesting comments on the school year 1948. The program closed with a vocal solo by Virginia Behrends and the singing of the school song in unison.

Senior Class Play The senior class of the Seneca high school presented its class play Tuesday and Wednesday evening to a full house each night The play entitled, "Almost bummer . was a three act comedy with a well chosen cast of characters. Donald Johnson playing the part of Paul Jones, won everyone's sympathy in his strug- earn a tla 1 , grade in a history" test, which if he achieved would leave him free to spend the summer at the lakes with Jane, his girl friend, played by Shirley Culbertson. Mr. and Mrs. Jones, Paul's exacting parents were plaved by Harvey Reutzel and Lois Madsen. Gerald Olsen, as Junior, the kid brother, was making life miserable for everyone, even for his girl friend. Lilah Johnson, played by Donna Moore, whose expressions of love for Junior em- barrased the latter extremely. Mary, the sister, was played very well by Marlys Johannesen, and Mary's boy friend, Jack played by Virgil Preston, almost got our hero into hotter water when helping him prepare for the fateful history examination. Dale Nyman, looking very scholarly, played .the part of the school principal, who gave the history test, anil Anna, the maid was very well played by Darlene Speth. The play was well presented with each character playing his part well. Much credit' goes to Supt. Wet/ler, who directed the play.
