The play, under the excellent direction of Mr. McCabe, was presented on Friday night, March 28. A true-to-life comedy, it was enjoyed by everyone and went off with great success.

Duet numbers by Norma Spooner and Dorothy Luft preceded the first act. Between acts, numbers were presented by some of the high school stu­dents who were going to participate in the music contest the next day.

The entire action of the play took place in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Roger Butler. It was a rousing comedy about the everyday, life of the Butler family. First of all there is Bobby, the youngest son of the family. He sells newspapers on the corner, wears rollerskates in the house, and has to be bribed to have a tooth pulled. Bill is the oldest son, who loves to invent things and is very thrilled when his present invention costs him only $96.50 instead of the intended $100.00. Caroline is the oldest child, the only daughter, a very spoiled young lady. The action of the play really begins when Caroline creaks her engagement with Bruce Ford. Trouble comes when Mr. Butler's business is about to go on the rocks unless he gets a large amount of money in short order. Mrs. Butler thinks they can borrow this from her widowed sister, Lucy Middleford who is bringing her only daughter, Avis, to visit the Butlers. Caroline Butler has found out that Avis is really adopted, but is warned not to mention this, for Avis thinks that Mrs. Middleford is her real mother. Avis incurs Caroline's enmity, however, when she is admired by Caroline's sweetheart, Bruce Ford, and in a burst of temper Caroline tells the girl about her adoption, thus creating a bad sit­uation all around. How the families are brought back together again, and how Caroline redeems herself, forms the balance of the play, a play that was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
