PAGE EIGHT OPERETTA IS PLANNED HERE FRIDAY NIGHT "Oh Doctor," annual musical operetta given by the high school glee clubs, will be presented to night at 7:45 at the high school auditorium. The story is set in a sanitarium operated 'by Doctor iDrinXwutcr, pompous, self-opinionated man who ihas disowned his only son because the boy married an actress. The sanitarium is located somewhere east of 'the Rio Grande, not far from the Mexican .border, Drlnkwater's wife dies, grieving for her son and leaving her money to his orphaned daughter Glory on condition .that she spend the last 24 hours before her 21st birthday with her grandfather. She hopes that in this contact all misunderstandings will be cleared up. But Glory, like her mother, is an actress, and under contract to make a talking picture in South America. Her 21st-birthday is only two days away. She must keep her contract, but she wants her •grandmother's money. Heroin* Plots a Ruse. Glory now remembers her friend Honor, who has a sick mother, and she conceives the idea of sending both to the sanitarium. Her grandfather ha.s never seen here, and need never see her again. Honor will substitute for Glory. When Honor and her mother, Madam Ohero, whom she introduc- os as her foster-mother, arrive at i the sanitarium the fun and troubles begin. Glory learns that her fiance, also, has gone to the sanitarium. 'His father was an old friend of 'Doctor Drinkwater, and the two men had long desired a match 'between him and Glory. Glory now 'hurries to the sanitarium to explain .to Bob before he meets Honor; but she spoils everything. She writes him a letter of explanation which Honor promises to deliver but loses. It is found by Rainbow, a colored boy who can neither read nor write. The let- Wesley ter leads everyone into hairbreadth escapes in hot pursuit. Now the Villain Appears.
