Three Act Farce To Be Presented May 14

            The senior class of Nichols High School is preparing to present on May 14, a three act farce entitled, “A Full House.”  This play by Fred Jackson, received considerable attention by the New York stage when first published.  It is a high class royalty play.  The setting of this play takes place in an apartment in New York.

            The these is centered around the attempts and subsequent complications which arise when Ned Pembroke, an only son of rich parents, attempts to secure the love letters he wrote to Vera Vernon, a show girl who is threatening to sue him.

            The case of 12 seniors and 2 juniors is as follows

            Parks – An English Servant    -- Louis Milder

            Susie – From Sioux City, a maid – Jean Elder

            Ottily Howell – a Bride – Madelyn Oostendorp

            Miss Winnecker – from Younkers, the aunt – Denise Wolford

            Daphne Charters – Ottilys sister – Ula Green

            Nicholas King – a stranger – Lawrence Harder

            Ned Pembroke Jr – an only son – Ralph Neff

            George Howell – a bridegroom – Marion Barnhart

            Daugherty – a police sergeant – Harley Kirkpatrick

            Jim Mooney – a policeman – Robert Kirkpatrick

            Clancy – a policeman – Virgil Vetter

            Mrs. Fleming – who owns the apartment – Loretta Borgstadt

            Vera Vernon – the show girl – Ethel Hillyer

            Mrs. Pembroke – from Boston – Haze Heizer

Rose and Silver Carried Out in an Old-Fashioned Flower Garden

            The Juniors entertained the seniors and faculty members at the annual junior and senior banquet on Wednesday, April 21 at the Methodist Church.

            Rse and silver, the senior class colors, were used in an old-fashioned garden idea.

            The toast program with L. B. Smith as toastmaster included: Welcome to the Seniors, Ethel Smith;  Response by Ula Green; Toads Snakes and Butterflies by Loren Brown; The Class Prophesy, Denise Wolford; Toast to the Faculty, Jean Elder; The Class Will, Bob Kirkpatrick and the Class Motto by Mr. Wilson.  A trio composed of Loretta Borgstadt, Madelyn and Lucille Oostendorp sang “An Old Fashioned Garden” and the High School Chorus sang “Dream Boat.”

            The waitresses at the banquet were the sophomore girls of the home economic class, Margaret Fox, Doris Heath, Luetta Pike, Doris Meyers, Genevieve Hillyer and Virginia Vogel.

*  *  *  *  *


            The seniors of this year will break the precedence set by seniors of former years and wear caps and gowns for commencement.  The caps and gowns, to be rented, will be worn commencement night only, it was decided.  Of the three sample colors sent to pick from, blue was the almost unanimous choice of the class.

*  *  *  *  *

Speaker for Commencement

            Arthur G. Langholz will be the commencement speaker this year.  His topic, “The Successful Life,” is sure to prove very interesting and helpful.  Mr. Langholz is the Lutheran pastor at Preston, Iowa.  He comes to us very highly recommended and we hope that many will be able to hear his address.

Sophomores Lead in Class Average

            To the surprise and dismay of the juniors and seniors the sophmores had the highest class average this last six weeks with 2.5.

            The senior average was 2.7.  High honors in the class go to Marion Barnhart with an average of 1.4, and Ralph Neff with 1.8.

            The juniors had an average of 2.8.  Dorothy Dedrick was first with 1.4 and Ethel Smith and Loren Brown tied for second place with 1.6 each.

            The beauty of a school is increased or decreased by the condition of the lawn.

            During these warm spring days the ground is soft and the yard is in danger of being made very rough by the careless walking on the ground by students.  A beautiful school lawn this summer depends on the care by the students this spring.


            One thing interesting to note about the “B” Average List this six weeks is that there are as many boys as girls.  Usually the girls take the lead but this time the boys are right with them.  Maybe next time they will pass them.

            For the fourth six weeks of school there were twelve students on the list or one-fourth of the school.  This time there are ten or about one-fifth of the pupils.  Somebody must be getting tired on the job.  We don’t want to let this good record to go down but to keep on increasing it.     Of course, we realize that there is a lot of activity towards the end of the year.  What with the Senior play, Junior and Senior Banquet, Baccalaureate and graduation, but that is no reason why we whould let our grades slump.

            Lt’s all work hard this last few remaining weeks and make a better mark than ever.

            Bob Kirk must have come to school one morning before he was awake.  Anyway when he walked in front of the assembly he fell over a seat that was out in plain sight, or maybe he hadn’t gone to bed yet.  Which was it, Bob?

            Bennie Mills must have the idea he’s a grown man by now.  The other night when Mr. Bruce told all the boys to wait a minute, Ben just stands up and nonchalantly walks out.  However, he found out very soon that he was still a boy and could wait with the rest of the bunch.

            We thought every one in high school would be able to sit up on a straight char now, but guess it’s our mistake as Jean E. seems unable to do so.  At operetta practice Tuesday afternoon, she just couldn’t manage to sit on the hard old chair so Denise obliging held Jean on her lap.

            According to Harley Kirk, a dynasty is one of those large prehistoric animals you read about.  Suppose a dinosaur is some kind of government they have.

            Virgil Vetter seems to be the farming exert of High School with raising corn his specialty.  When asked the other day what crows did to hurt corn that was just starting to grow.  Virgil replies, “Why they pick off the ears”  Must be a special kind of corn to grow ears so early, isn’t it Virg?”

            Afraid te high school will have to have some curtains before long if Denise tries to lower then very much.  Last Monday she started to pull down the shade and before you knew what happened the whole works came down, the rod, cord and everything.

            Harley was as absent minded as usual Wednesday that he took his English Lit book to Physics class.  Or it might be he’s so interested in English that he was just going to put extra time on it.

            A world series baseball game in miniature was played here Tuesday night during the hard rain storm.  Atalissa came down to play a baseball game so rather than postpone it, they played an indoor kittenball game.  The Atalissa boys had little trouble in sliding the bases as they played in their stocking feet. All enjoyed the game as much or more than if the regular game had of been played.

            We have finished another six weeks work with report cards going home on Wednesday.  Those who had the highest averages were: First Grade, Freddie Stephens, Virginia Cozad and Keith Mills; Second Grade; Catherine Wilson, Joyce King and Velma Rose Marine.  Third Grade; Louise Polman and Gordon Daedlow; tying for highest, Joyce Borchardt and Keith Nichols for second.

            This is the season for plants so in the first Grade we are studying about the parts of a plant.  The Second Grade are watching beans sprout, some in a glass of water and some in a glass under damp cotton.  Third graders are watching seed corn sprout in a glass of water and some of us planted grapefruit seeds.

First Grade

            We are working very hard on our combinations and find there are many interesting ways to drill on them.

            The coconut which Joyce brought to use from Florida is ripening raidly and we are anxious to see what is inside.

Second Grade

            We are finding the study about transportation very interesting, specializing on the train.  The traveling library has supplied us with two books which are very helpful.

Third Grade

            We have completed our Child Library readers and will begin work on our Bolenius readers soon.

            In Arithmetic we have made charts and are watching our work in the self-testing drills.  Our highest average has been 8.5 and we hope to raise it higher.

Foreign Correspondence

            Louis Milder received a letter last week from his foreign friend that lives in Hammerfast, Norway.

            It was read before the English Literature class and proved to be very interesting.

            Some of the odd characteristics of the letter were he told of his schooling.  Ten years of school seven of which are grade school and three are grammar school or high school.

            He told us that nearly all the sports we played here were over there but baseball and basketball.  Skiing an ice skating are the most important sports over there.

            He was a very good letter writer and he had an excellent usage of the verb shall and will.

Tiny Tots Must Play

            Well, Senior Play practice has started.  Of course, eating candy, etc. and swinging when they should be inside is all a part of the seniors’ amusements.  Instead of dignified seniors they act more like freshman.  Talk about silly things, they always do the impossible.  Even down to giggling and just playing.  I wonder if they will ever grow up.  We all know our school days here at N. H. S. will soon be over.

*  *  *  *  *

Yum – Yum – Toast

            What a dreadful time they had with their toasts and not the simple bread and butter toasts either, but the after dinner speeches at the banquet.

            For weeks and weeks of so it seemed the Juniors and Seniors were trying to find material and something to talk about.  They had their topics, but they didn’t seem to help much.  They certainly had a terrible time and took suggestions from everyone.  One innocent senior girl said, “Oh, just take a piece of toast along.”  She knew better and they really weren’t so easy to prepare as that.

            At any rate the program was well done and relished by all in spite of their troubles.

*  *  *  *  *

Class Day

            After much arguing and discussion the seniors have finally decided on their class day trip.  At least some of the their plans have been arranged.    

            Des Moines is the place they have selected in  preference to the Maquoketa caves and such places around Dubuque.

            Visiting the capitol will probably be the chief interest of the class.  They are such history minded students you know.  Well anyway, lets hope they remember something about it, at least where it’s at.

How Funny These Songs Sound

            “The Girl in the Police Gazette” –is- “Too Marvelous For Words.”

            “Speaking of the Weather” – “There’s Frost On the Moon.”

            The splinter song – “I’ve Got You Under My Skin.”

            “May I Have the Next Romance with You” – “Sweet Leilani.”

            “Boo Hoo” – “Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off.”

            How unfair for the family to go vacationing while poor Dad sits with his feet on his desk in an air conditioned room.  St. Louis Times.

            The Nichols School wishes to thank all those who helped in the production of the operetta and sailor-revue by lending clothing and various equipment.  With the cooperation of outsiders the entertainment was a success so we say again, “Thank You.”
