'Tlia musical, featuring hit songs from Rodgers and Hammerstein Broadway productions, will be presented Feb. 24-25 in the Senior : High School auditorium. "^fembe^s of the choir have ' been writing the script of the two- act musical, but we can't give a s3mopsis of the plot as yet." revealed Gerald Fritz, director. ' "The Main reason is that the whole script hasn't been completed, and at this point we've only selected the music." Friday morning, vacation for most students, the cast began a read-through of the first act. Basically the plot is about Steve An' dre\vs, played by George Means, who is having difficulty writing • English themes. However, he be^ comes so proficient in a few *• months, he is asked to write and direct a college revue. He agrees to do this because his 'heart " throb,' Julie Andrews, played by Judy Babler, is an aspiring actress and will probably get a leading role. The setting is a small college campus. "The story is complicated," Fritz said, "and we will have to . straighten out a few of the compli­ cations -before we can complete the script." In addition to Means and Miss Babler, the cast includes Larry Chamberlain as Cal, Lois Anderson as Lisa, Patt McNally as Sugar, Jeff Swenson as Dr. George Sebastian Taylor, Berry Whitford as Henrietta Wilson, John Traxler as Prof. Will B. Wrong, John Umhoefer as Prof. I. M. Wright, Dick Foss as Dr. Isaac Quentin Jones. Karen Pumell as Kathy, the school mascot, Jean Bell as Gertrude, Carol Schwabke as Gina, Charlene Heise as Stacey, Bob Gumble as Herbert the Beatnik, Dave Fields as Bronco, Mike Snyder as Jeff, Dave Myhre as Harlowe P. Peabody, Ruth Grisa as Maria Adelmann, Lee Snyder as Ben Wilson, Carolyn Schubert as Jane Caldwell, and Robert Johnson as Sam. Also in the production will be Judy Olander, Virginia Jones, Joyce Bell, Mary Shea, Karen Anderson, Karen McGill, Joyce Burhans, Gail Trickel, Terry Bramble, Roy Pearson, Terry Teubert and Bob Hoye. The A Cappella Choir is being aided in its production by the JHS orchestra, under the direction of Eugene Erickson, and the JHS art department headed by William Franzmann.

Highway 81 Crash Trial Continuing Through Saturday An end to the automobile accident case of Albert Sprecher, 2407 Riverside Drive, Beloit, against the Heritage Mutual Insurance Co. and E. W. Hauri, Beloit rural resident, was hoped for Saturday. The case, on trial before Judge Arthur L. Luebke and a jury, was started Thursday but could not be completed Friday afternoon. Sprecher is suing the insurance company which had written liability insurance on a car of Marion Lichtenberg, killed in the crash, and also Hauri, farmer who was operating a tractor on the highway at the site of the accident. On the witness stand Friday afternoon, Sprecher said that he had suffered injury to his right leg, and also had lesser injuries to one shoulder and to his head. He claims that he saw the tractor approaching as he was driving on Highway 81 west of Beloit, but failed to see the Lichtenberg car just tiehind it until it was turned into his lane of traffic. The head- on crash came in ten seconds or less, he said. Judge Luebke took under advisement a motion of Lawrence W. Rice, Beloit, attorney for Hauri, which would take tlie farmer entirely out of one phase of the case. The tractor, while at the spot, was not itself directly involved in the crash, but allegations of negligence have been made concerning Kauri's operation of it. Hauri, absent on a hauling job eastward, has not appeared personally at the trial. Hugh Oldenberg. Madison, is attorney for (he liability insurance company. Tlie insurance company has a claim for contribution against the farmer. Witnesses so far have been JEFFERSON — Five recommendations were outlined by Clarence Wendt, Jefferson County juvenile probation officer, in his annual report. He suggested that the county establish a family counsel­ ling center, set up a county recreation program with a full-time director, add another children's worker in the welfare department, establish an advisory board to Juvenile Court, and give additional study to each case before it is presented to the judge of the Juvenile Court. He further recommended that Jefferson County raise the age for drinking beer from 18 to 21. Wendt said that counties all around have raised the beer age limit with the result that the "18-year-olds flock to our county." His report praised probation as a treatment for youngsters in trouble. From a money standpoint, he said that the Jefferson County probation office supervised over 400 boys in I960 on the probation department's budget of $5,167.50, a cost of $12.75 per boy. He compared this to $3,000 for housing a boy at Waukesha State School for a year; $1,600 at Green Bay Reformatory; and $1,200 at Waupun. This figure goes to $6,000 and more for a year when cost of supporting a family and loss of wages are computed, he added. Furthermore, these institutions are overcrowded and full of problems. When a youth is turned over to the probation officer by Judge L. L. Darling, the person faces an indefinite period of supervision up to age 21. This means regular contact with the probation officer who may govern school attendance, hours, companions, driving a car and restitution for damages dene. He added that a confidential curfew list of all boys on probation is sent to all chiefs of police. His report showed that the county sent 4 boys and 9 girls to correctional schools; 23 were placed in foster homes; 4 were sent to Mendota; 61 boys and girls were placed in detention quarters. Wendt deplored the county's detention quarters, which he said, "resemble solitary confinement." He added that "Judge Darling orders youth sent to Dane County detention quarters in Madison which are more humane." Juvenile offenses during 1960 included: larceny, 79; sex, 22; traffic, 15; beer, 26; truancy, 10; vandalism, 33; gambling, 8. Restitution amounted to $448.74. Most of these figures were down considerably from the 1959 report. Among 1959 offenses were: larceny, 98; sex, 18; traffic, 80; beer, 68; truancy, 28; vandalism, 42; restitution, $290.16. Wendt concluded that only three per cent of Jefferson County youth appear before the courts. JEFFRIS Now Showing FOR 2 WEEKS SUN.

JEFFERSON - Although the number of rural schools has decreased in Jefferson County, the supervising teacher still has 94 elementary teachers to work with, according to the annual report of County Supt. Arthur Schultz. The county now operates 37 one-teacher schools and seven two teacher schools. Annexation to high school districts is the main reason for the fewer number of rural schools. Although the number of schools has decreased, the number of teachers has not diminished in proportion. There were 111 teachers in 1956 compared to 94 now. The superintendent stated that work in the department has actually increased, mostly because of required information to be filed with the state superintendent. He pointed out that the salary of the supervising teacher, Mrs. Margaret Laughlin, is completely reimbursed by the state. Schultz said, "even though the future for many of the teachers seems black, because of district annexation to high school areas, they must be commended for not taking a 'let-down' attitude. Excellent interest, desire and cooperation can still be found in the schools where the future appears very dim, as July 1, 1962, will bring the end to the eight-grade, one-room school." Schultz said that the county special school has a full enrollment and that a waiting list will probably be necessary by the end of the year. Last year, he said, a speech correctionist handled 246 children in the county each week, but that the county has been without the services of a speech teacher during the past year. He noted that conservation and safety are among top programs carried out in the county schools, and that a curriculum guide for county schools has been completed.
