The dinner was given in honor of the homecoming of Howard Gordanier who was recently discharged from the Navy. (Continued from page one) n surprise climax. Bill Marling as the quiet and expressionless Private, Charles Hoth as the dynamic Captain, and Jim Kocvenlg as the severely military Lieutenant, are typical of those who would murder and destroy in order that the honor of the State might, unhampered, be upheld. Dwight Marston as the Actor, who feels that art is almost as Important as life, and the Stranger, Don Harris, prove that superior intelligence can triumph over brute force. The student director for "No Curtain Calls" is Russell Harris. A mixed cast plays in "Who Gets the Car Tonight?" by Chris Sergei. This play Is produced by special arrangement with the Dramatic Publishing Company. Mr. Jones, played by Art Schultz, is a middle-aged business man who desires "a little peace and quiet" at home after a hard day at the office. His wife, Mrs. Jones, played by Margret Buddcnberg, often wonders why she married such a "lazy, selfish brute." Their two children, Paul, Eddy Green, and Mary, Shirley McNnlly, contrive to upset father's pence and disrupt mother's plans when they both want the car on the same night, the same night when Mr. Jones, too, would like to use the car. Grant Schultz as Jack, Mary's boy friend, also contributes to the humor in the play. Rosella Op- sand is the student director. On the production staff Vernon Ger- ickc is stage manager. Jack Vander- Weg is electrician, and Rose Marie Meyer and Virginia Peckham are on the property committee. Dramatists Initiated. The semi-yearly time for Thespian initiations took place last Monday night for the formal initiation and Tuesday afternoon for the informal initiation. There is really nothing terrible about the formal initiation thot anyone should dread. No, Indeed, that went off solemnly and without any sign of mishap when Barbara Abernethy, Leo ChristofTerson, Violet Gordanier, Eugene Haltmeyer, Marvin Hammond, Russell Harris, Dorothy Looney, Bill Marting, Art Meyer, Marvin Muehow, Cloy Schultz and Clarlan Thompson repeated the vows taken to become a Thespian. But the informal initiation, that's what the assembly looks forward to, and that's what the poor initiates would rather miss altogether. However, such was not their luck. When they came to school Tuesday morning, the girls replete with bathing caps, high heels and anklets and cold cream replacing the usual make-up, and the boys with trousers rolled ankle-high, complete make-up, ear-rings and their hair in a turban, this was just the beginning. They carried their pencils in a tin con all day, plus a brush which was used to polish any and all old Thespian members' shoes whenever they unfortunately met. The climax came right after dinner when each got up in front of the assembly and gave a performance for the benefit of the assembly. Now they are true Thespian members and each one surely agrees it was well worth it! Hot Lunch Menu for Feb. 11-15. Monday—Beef and noodles, buttered carrots, whole wheat sandwiches and milk. Tuesday—Creamed corn and ham, cabbage and apple salad, chocolate milk and raisin cookies.

This week we have been working with the number combinations of six in the "Jolly Numbers" books. The two groups reading in "Fun With Dick and Jane" have finished the section called. "Fun at the Farm," and one group has read several stories in the next section. Wo also started using a pre-primer science book, called "Wo See," for science class this week. This week we discussed animals, dogs and rabbits in particular. Third Grade. The class in language began an original short story about a boy named Jimmy who got into mischief while his mother was gone. Each pupil then finished the story in his own way. The best completions to the story were those of Janice Brown, Janis Christof- fcrson, Janet Gordon, Francis Nelson and Eugene Winter. Katchina dolls were constructed of paper, spools and feathers during art class last week. These dolls are models of those made by the Hopi Indians, who use them in connection with their Katchina Roin Dance. The pupils have completed their study of Hopi Indian life from the book, "Land Of Little Rain." and have begun "Pueblo Playmates." Fourth Grade News. In arithmetic classes the pupils have been solving fractions and thought problems dealing with telling time. They have started a new unit in their reading test called "Famous People of Other Times."
