Promises Many Thrills Junior Class to Give Play'" Friday Evening at High School, "The Call of the Banshee," the junior class play, will be presented March 16 at 8:15 o'clock in the high school auditorium, by the junior class. The play, which ia a mystery, has been directed by Miss Ruth Irons, dramatic instructor of the high school. Imagine two murders, in the same house, by some mysterious person, who gives a shleking cry before each one, but not soon enough for the victim to escape death! Imagine facing a hypnotist, just about to be forced to take an unwanted journey, and then to have him fall dead before you! These are only two of the many astonishing events which tumble one on top of the other with such bewildering rapidity that the audience is left gasping. Weird and mysterious situations, in which it is evident that someone has evil designs upon another someone, cause each individual to suspect the other, ana the solution comes as a breath-taking surprise. There is a thread of romance, comedy and suspense which holds its grip until the final curtain. 1G Juniors in Cast. The cast of the play consists of 16 juniors.
