The annual class play, which this year is "Spring Dance," will be given a week from tomorrow night at the high school auditorium at 8 o'clock under direction of David Phillips. The cast has been working for several weeks at polishing dialog for the various scenes, A review of the play and cast follows: "'Much of it is swell. It tosses off dialog that cannot be beaten in the land. You are bound to receive an evening of supreme importance in the theater.' This is the way the New York Times describes 'Spring Dance,' the play chosen by seniors. When a newspaper that views scores of plays each season writes this in review, it must be good. The Plot in Brief. "The play takes place in a girls' school in the east, and deals with the attempt of several girls, played by Enid Fuller, Marorie Phillips, Mildred Pratt and Meredith Richardson, to 'get' the boy friend of one of their roommates, Maxine Larson. "Jack Long is the boy friend, with other male visitors for the week-end played by Richard Keeue, Ted Chrischilles, Harold Banwart, and Everett Black. Richard Norton is a professor, Louise Smith, the housemother, and Gayle Shackelford the maid. Funniest at Grlnnell. "The dialog is fast and clever, with enough college atmosphere to add zest. It was proclaimed by many as the funniest play in many years when given at Grlnnell college last spring. Iowa university gave it as part of a dramatic program this fall. "Tickets for adults are 30 cents and will be on reserve at James drug store May 5 and 6. Student tickets are 20 cents and will be sold at the school Tuesday and Wednesday. Wednesday."

Notice of corn and general soil depletion acreage alottments were sent out the first of the week for the south eight townships of the county by the county committee, and the balance will be sent out this week so that every farmer in the county will have an official apportionment. •Each farmer has 15 days from the date on which his notice was postmarked to come before the county committee and protest or show cause if he wishes his acreage changed in any way. In the past most of the protests have been technical, based on incorrect figures, and it is anticipated that this year there will be no protests except where there was an error in figuring. Corn Base 1C Per Cent. The base this year is 16 percent less corn acreage and 3 percent less general or small grain acreage than the base established during the period from. 1930 to the present according to figures in the old AAA and the present soil conservation records. The "general" division of the allotment in this section of the country deals mostly with oats, or other small grains, and in this county particularly the most reduction caused in this division is in the oats crop. However the percentage is so small that it is not a hardship. The corn acreage has the biggest elasi. Corn is Still Sealed.
