Afavorite Irish comedy by Lady Gregory, "Spreading the News," is de- signed especially to dispel your worry in following the entanglements of these Irish villagers. With Martha as the stone-deaf apple woman, Nell as Bartley (the ;nan of complaint and misfortune), and Bob as Jack Smith (the red-haired man), the play should go off with a "bang." The complete cast is as follows: Mrs. Tarpey .................... Martha Meyer Mrs. Fallon ............ Elizabeth MacLean Mrs. Tully ................ Katherine McKay Bartley Fallon ......... " ...... Neal Warwick Jack Smith ........................ Robert Garcia Tim Casey ................................. Tom Daly Shawn Early ...................... John Bottelo James Ryon .................. Fred McKelvey Magistrate ............................ Theo Sierks Police ............................ Malcolm Renton " THE FLORIST SHOP" The other play, "The Florist Shop," is a comedy written by'Winifred Hawkridge. It was played by the Harvard Dramatic Club. This play strikes a deeper note than "Spreading the News," in that it combines humor and pathos. Dramatis Personnae Maude, bookkeeper ............ Betty Trout Henry, office boy ..........

ONE HUNDRED OR BETTER The following are the students who had 100 or more merits at the end of the month : Tom Daly, Florence Feltrop, John Shields, Malcohn Renton, Doris Wil- cox, Elizabeth MacLean, Grace Tre- garthen and Fred McKelvey. Next month there will be more s}u- dents on this list who will have I(X) or more merits--we hope.

"Whent the proper time comes I will tell all that I know; but until that time, I will have nothing to say." If there is any sign of graft or cor- rnption, this paper will do its best to bring about the punishment of the of- fenders. We do not think that Mr. Daly would deliberately commit such a hei- nous crime by being so good that hc did not get one demerit. But some- times even the most trusted men fail to uphold their honor.

TRACK WORK BEGINS Now that the basketball season is over, all the boys at the Hi are train- ing in track work. For the first few clays everyone was a little stiff from the rather strenous exercise of high jumping and running. We have several promising men lined up for track work. When Tom Daly and Fred McKeh'ey stretch their long legs in the hundred yard clash, they leave everyone else in the dust. With some training these boys ought to be able to make some fast time. Avalon High School will have more of a chance to compete with other schools in athletic meets than it had in basketball. It is difficult to have a good basketball team with so few men to choose from, while a few good men can corral many points at track meets. The United States history class at the high school recites in a room with a large window opening on the board- walk. During the periods of warm weather many beautiful young women promenade to and from the St. Cath- erine Hotel past this window. When the high school is moved to the new site the history grades will improve, but our aesthetic conceptions will be
