Do you at the slightest provocation go into convulsions and throw yourself around the room ?m- t f? a ?J?} odic 3erks and gasp unintelligible sounds that vastly resemble the death throes of a chicken with its head hacked off? Co you chill to the very marrow or your bones when some screwball cornetist messes up an arrangement and you mistake it for a new variation of "hot licks?" And we call the cannibals uncivilized! The wild, impulsive, maddened dance of the savage differs very mile from modern jitterbueging v . 1 . begin as a result of rtiythm; be it tom-toms or swing bands. The dancers gather momentum as the tempo grows faster and soon the result is that the dancers have thrown themselves into a wild frenzy and cavort as though the very furies of nature had been unleashed upon them. To a spectator it isn't dancing. It's a Horrible spectacle of unhampered emotions. Music ceases to be music when it is changed into a blaring, rasping demon which eggs' its victims on to losing self respect and good health. It threatens to destroy the future of light music. Those jitterbugs seem to forget that "the song is the thing." These sounds can't be swing because swing music is entertaining. This is mayhem. --K. E. K.

Led by Jim Humphrey, who turned In his best performance of the year the Mohawks took a 6-3 lead at the end of the first quarter and were never overtaken. It was CoHolon and Pickell in the front court who paced the Mohawk scoring with 8 and 6 points respectively. Brisbine and Cooper were outstanding as they broke through t i m e and time again to stop Sac City's fast break which has been justly famous. All- Stater Jim Thynne of Sao City was the most feared man on the court, but Jim Humphrey completely bottled him up and outplayed him In every department. The same was the fastest and most thrillinc game of the tournament thus far. A mediocre team during the regular season, the Mohawks have Played inspired ball in all tournament contests.

Wilma Walters Cast as Socialite in Three Act Comedy Wilma Walters is cast as Faith Ci-ornbie, the flirtatious daughter of a well-to-do society leader in 'ne junior class play, "I'll Leave It To You," the three-act comedy to be presented Wednesday evening, March 22 in the high school auditorium at 8:15. Upon faith rests the responsibility of hilarious flirtation and disinterested insincerity. She is inclined to be rather "dumb" in most matters and utterly lacking m self-independence, conforming always to her mother's wishes. Jack Fatland In Cast Jack Fatland is cast opposite Wilma as Bobby Dermott the "delicate and interesting" song writer who depends entirely upon Faith for his inspiration. Bobby is unlike his older brother, Oliver, iu that he is move the conventional rather than the athletic type of fellow. He prefers to spend his spare time dreaming about his next song success. The action of the story takes place m Mulberry Manor, Mrs Dermott's house, a few miles out of London, and revolves around the adventures of a family who suddenly find themselves penniless and who practically get grav hair over night worrying about it. Uncle Daniel, played by Arthur Feeney, arrives from South America where lie lias been oparating a "mixed mine." He is rich in dramatic ability and provides many laughs w i t h his lightly amusing airs. He inspires the children to get recognition for themselves iu the work-a-day world by promising his entire fortune to the one of them who makes the most oC himself during his brief sojourn lit South America. Prophecy Comes True His prophecy comes true. Tho children do have talent and the goal he sets for each serves to spur Ihem on even more than he had dared hope. A O'B of .
