P. A. Which Number From 1-309 Will You Be When Graduated? Across a coverlet of velvet green grass will come marching more ·than 300 stately seniors to receive the reward for f o u r years of work which was featured by either determination to be a success or an "I'll get by" attitude. Each will be awarded his diploma but to some it will mean much more than it does to others. To a few it will be a blazing of honor which will be proudly carried to enlighten the rocky path to success. To the others it will signify nothing more than a final escape from learning. · This last group should be im\ pressed with the fact that recevv- 1 ing one's diploma is not the last ! issue. Every individual senior is ) rated numerically as to his stand- i ing in his class, based entirely i upon the kind of work he has ex- J hibited during his four years. How | proud shall I feel if I am recorded / as number 305 when, with a bit 1 more of sincere studying, I couid \ have been classified as number 50 ·· or even better. As seniors, we I have 60 days in which to bring up I a faltering average. Can we do / it? Can we show the world that . nothing succeeds like success?-', K. K.

He has to his credit many famous productions, humorous, satirical, and occasionally derisive, and is known for the clever wit which is found in practically all his works. has been an exceptionally full one, with war experience, success, failure, applause, and hisses; however, the applause and success have predominated. In his autobiography, "Present Indicative," he tells of his writing Give "Gondoliers" Tuesday ' "I'll Leave It to You," saying the characters were favorites of his, because "even to him, the author and creator, they were warm and human." Who will be on the honor roll Saturday, March 11? Why procrastinate until the last week of the six weeks' period? 4 £ 3 Some pedagogs are wishing that the senior class would produce "She Stoops to Conquer" by Oliver Goldsmith. Why not? * s * Dr. T.

Difference ELIAS SPEAKS FOR STUDENTS "Why do men die for their countries? Because without a country they are dead," stated George EUas in an assembly Monday. Mr. Elias, for 18 years a man without a country, was born in the mountainous part of Kurdistan, Turkey. The golden rule there seemed to be "Do unto others all that you can but don't let them do a thing unto you." Mr. Elias met his father in a refuge camp and they traveled to America with passport granted to them by a Persian counsuL Mr. EUas was houseman in. the Sherman hotel in Chicago for several years before he became a lecturer. Mr. Elias in parting said, "You should realize that you are the luckiest boys and girls in the world".--M. F., M. B. 90 to Be in Performance Gilbert, Sullivan Operetta Directed by Ellen M. Smith Wearing colorful costumes the period of 1750 and decked with beautiful wreaths of brilliant southern flowers, the 90 members of the cast and chorus of "The Gondoliers" will appear in their final performance on Tuesday at 8:15 p. m. They are directed by Miss Ellen M. Smith, who has put into tliis production the finesse' which is characteristic of her operettas. She has been assisted by Miss Mary Sherman, director of dialog. According to Miss Smith, the costumes to be worn are exceptionally beautiful, as well as authentic, since they are the same as those worn by the D'Oyly-Carte company, direct descendants of original actors in Gilbert and Sul- * livan productions. The costumes are from the famous Tracy library of Boston, Mass. Are Adored Gondoliers Wilma Walters, soprano, and Joan O'Neil, alto, play the roles of practical Gianetta and romantic Tessa.

The two male · parts are played by Lee Lusted and Clark Sweetser. Bill Wright as the duke of Plaza-Toro and Jane Satter as the duchess provide a strain of gentle humor throughout the entire play. Hoger Larson and Virginia*Bringolf, as Luiz, the duke's drummer, and Casilda, the duke's daughter, provide an ardent and humorous love story, as they are separated, first by the difference in their ranks and then by the announcement of Casilda's marriage to the king of Barataria. Bill Armstrong becomes the villain of the story as Don Alhambra, the grand inquisitor of Spain. He separates the young gondoliers from _their wives, Luir from Casilda 'and imprisons Inez, the foster- mother of the king of Barataria played by Amy Lou Haight.
