Mr. Noragon, the Junior Class Sponsor, directed the play, which was presented on the evening of December 6. The co=operation of the Junior Class and the perseverance of the director were responsible for its success.

Different members of the play cast provided entertainment between acts. One very unusual and interesting feature *as the singing of "Doini What Comes Natur'lly" by the entire caste Norma and Merlin also gave a very humorous skit entitled " Three Strikes and Out"-

The entire action of the play centered around Ma Peppin's rustic log cabin on Hog Mountain, deep in the heart of the Ozarks. Luke was in love with Emmy but Ma Peppin forbade him to see her because of a fued between her and Peppy Sfilsby. Both Ma and Pap had Wash write to the wedding bureau for mates but Wash put Emmy' s and Luke's pictures in the letters. Bridget 01Flannigan came up in answer to Pap's letter and Louis Cattaro came in answer to Mats letter but of course they thought they were to marry Luke and Emmy. The plot was even further complicated by the arrival of the two hillbilly songbirds, Lulu and Seedie Triffet, and their manager, Sol Silverstein. After a lot of gun play, fighting, and humor, the solution of the problem was reached by the marriage of Bridget and Louis, the end of the feud between Ma. and nappy, and the return of the Triffets and their manager to the city. This enabled Luke and Emmy to carry on their romance unhindered.
