(29*) Large Cast In Sentral Class Play April 14 FENTON - The senior class of Sentral High School will present Thornton Wilder's very challenging play, "Our Town", April 14 at 8 p.m. at the Sentral gym. The story told is a simple one, picturing everyday life and everyday thoughts. The setting is Grover's Corners, New Hampshire, at the beginning of the 20th century. It could be your town. One unusual feature is the character of the stage manager, who takes various roles and pauses now and then to add his own comments on the town and its people. But more extraordinary is the fact that Our Town is presented with only a bit of scenery, little furniture and few properties. The play therefore requires the constant-imaginative participation of the audience; that is, the audience must imagine that the characters are walking along main street, or that Mrs. Gibbs and Mrs. Webb are getting breakfast. With his inique method, the author does more than tell a story. He has written a document that shows how ordinary APRIL PECIA MILK mm HOLDER FOR % GALLON PAPER TYPE MILK CARTONS Swell ide.r.

To Improve P.O. At Fenton; Not To Build New FENTON - This is a corrected news release from the post- office dept. The previous news release was issued in error by the regional office. The Post Office Department is seeking bids for an improved building to house its postal operations at Fenton. Under the Department's Lease Construction program, a contract will be awarded to the bidder who designates an existing building suitable to the Department's needs and agrees to improve it according to departmental specifications and then lease it to the Depar- tmen for a basic period of 5 years, with options to renew the lease for an additional 6 years. The Department's capital investment will be limited substantially to postal equipment. The building will remain under private ownership, with the owner paying local real estate taxes. * * Mrs. Kate Wegener will be honored on her 90th birthday April 16 from 2 to 5 p.m. A family open house will be held at the Kenneth Johnson home.
