Graves 1947 Tug-of-Wor The annual tug of war between the junior and senior class wil soon be history! Who' will xvin? The' best men, of course. The tug is tHe crowning feature of class athletics during the schoo year and not a member of either class would conceive of doing a single thing to defeat it. Guessing the winner is difficult for in manpower the seniors are slightly outnumbered this year with only 131 men against the juniors 143. However, the seniors feel confident that they will win having tasted victory last year when they pulled the class of '46 through the creek. As the date draws nearer, then, let's hope that all boys prove themselves most MANLY. And-may the BEST MEN win!

Proprietor SENIORS OFFER COMEDY-DRAMA "Outward Bound" to Be Presented May 22-23 "Outward Bound," * 3-act com' edy-drama by Sutton Vane, ha; been selected by dramatic director, Miss Helen Thomas, »s the senior class play to b* present* Thursday and Friday May 22-23 at &15 p. m. in the auditorium. Tltf central theme Is the pre- •ortah'on of the author's Idea o jaiCawVit »»d the life after death "Ctatwaftd Bound" is a character sday re»&*e with beautiful dramatic aeotfls »s well at sophisticate! imwft'j and thus the author sbvm the »*dJenc* a glimpse of several type* of people under such ttnofe A'numitances. The group of ,9 oddly assorted character passengers on an ocean liner whose destination is unknown, appear as fallows: Scrubby—George Van Essen— the cockney steward is on duty to answer the questing of the passengers and has the air of one who has made this voyage many times. Ann and Henry—Waiva Isaac- son'and Bill Nicholas—a younj •couple in love, affectionate^ anc gentle but unmistakably have a Seeling of tragedy about them. Tom Prior—Bob Whitehead—-a young man, about 25, who is by his own admission a drunkard very much at "home" near the bar. Mrs. 'Cliveden-Banks—MaybeTle Adclsman—a rather transparent psuedo society woman. She feigns social position and recognition but as is evident by her loud boasting she is actually only a social climber. She is a large WOTnan, long of tongue, "wide of gesture and her face is that of a middle- aged woman who has done everything possible to preserve youth. The Her. William Duke—Adi- tides Guanas—* Idndly middle aged ttJnisief, who is endowed with the gift of leufllnr confidence to the others even though lie himself is not certain what is to come of them all. Mrs. Midget—Euth Leamau—a humble' little old cockney charwoman, wery small, withered and white-haired but witli a complexion grown' ruddy rather than pale as a result of hard work all her life. She is the most sympathetic character iri the play and is kind and gentle ta -all but not incapable of Caring up whan unjustly treated. Mr. Ungle.y—Joel Hanes— pompous self—made businessman, is harsh, scornful and unsympa-' thetic in dealing with others and, enjoys boasting of the many obstacles he overcame to reach his present successful state. The Rev. Frank Thomson—Herbert Gindler— iiie examiner, whose personality changes to suit the different characters he must deal with. His most obvious characteristic is joviality along with a kind and sympathetic manner. "Outward Bound" requires one set, the smoke rootti of a small ocean liner. Although the play, deals with death it, is never depressing; it is a friendly show filled with good humor, human sympathy and amused -under-' standing laughter. Vane's strange play is a modern classic that possesses a beauty of plot which tan-i not fail to interest tegh school RomeyNamed President of Hi-Tri Club Marilyn Jlomer was elected president of the Hi-Tri club fo 1947-'48 on April 14.

He was wearing an ordinary business suit and shirt with sleeves buttoned. This added to the magical effect. First part of the program was a group of coin tricks. He made, them disappear and then picket them out of the air. Next be used pieces of cloth and hankies whici he likewise made disappear am re-appear. He tore tncm into several strips and then put them together arain by the ware of his magic wand. Don Woodhouse, a junior, was the first audience participant. Mr Powell proceeded to make a cake in Woodhouse's sports coat pocket First, he crushed an egg in the pocket, carefully removed the shell, added flour, milk and extract. The extract he poured on a handkerchief, and then lighted i with a match and put it in Don's, pocket. There was a cup cake and a whole handkerchief when he had finished. Mr. Powell used 3 more boys in a rope trick and 3 girls In a card trick. The last trick was that of Oswald, the educated bunny. After each of the (iris had picked a card from the PoweJI deck, he reinserted it, and shuffled the deck Oswald perched in a topper ha' threw all the cards out of the hn except the 3 which the girls had chosen. Mr. Powell performed many other complicated tricks. The one that was most mystifying was his variation of Harry Keller's Chinese checker magic. Under one metal cylinder an orange was placed, under another some rice, and under a 3rd some Chinese checkers. By waving his magic wand, Mr. Powell was able to make the rice appear where the checkers had been, the orange where the rice had been, and the checkers where the orange had been. The suave deceiver entertained. Students wish Mr. Powell to return next year. G. H.
