compared to scores of former years,
one of the greatest improvements
has been in headlines and typo
graphy. Judges indicated that more
contrast in headlines might help.
Notations placed in the score
book tell something of the opinion
of the judges. One note says: “Cov
erage is fine, emphasis well placed
and balance satisfactory through
out”; another, “Fine, well-rounded
paper with, it would seem, consid
erable student appeal.”
The paper is printed in Mount
Olive by the Mount Olive Tribune,
and a generous amount of credit
goes to this firm for its fine work
in printing the paper.

'Arsenic and Old Lace' May 12,14
(By Frank Mclnnis)
“Arsenic And Old Lace”, a come
dy by Joseph Kesselring ,will be
presented by the Junior Class and
the Goldmasquers May 12 and 14
in the Goldsboro High School audi
torium, at the end of Annual Junior
Having enjoyed a highly success
ful run of four years on the Broad
way stage, “Arsenic And Old Lace”
has become one of the comedy
classics of the American stage and
is one of the ten most-produced
plays of the high school theatre.
So widespread is its popularity that
it has been made into a very suc
cessful motion picture and has en
joyed record runs abroad, particu
larly in London.
Under the direction of Clifton
Britton, a cast of twelve juniors, a
sophomore and a senior will bring
to the stage the famous lines,
shocks, and situations of the play
so many have come to enjoy.
In the cast, Susan Mitchell and
Sara Markham wiJJkbe seenvas Ab-
by and Martha Brewster, respect
ively, the two old maid aunts in
whose Brooklyn home the action
Carl Kassell, recently seen in
“Today Is Tomorrow”, “The Fish
erman” and “Distant Drums” will
portray their nephew, Mortimer.
Opposite him will be seen Carolyn
Malpass as Elaine Harper. These
two will supply the love interest
so appropriate in lifting the amus
ing proceedings of the show.
Frank Mclnnis, who has appeared
in “The Missouri Romance”, “Years
Ago”, and “The Shepherd’s Song”,
will appear as Doctor Herman Ein
stein. Portraying the sinister fig
ure of the play, Bobby Martin is
the frightening Jonathan Brewster.
Bobby has been seen in such shows
as “The Missouri Romance”, “Best
Foot Forward” and double-scored
in the State Championship play,
“Today Is Tomorrow”.
The Reverend Dr. Harper will
be played by Cecil West, well-re
membered for “Distant Drums”.
The Officers Brophy and Klein are,
respectively, Donald Best and Don
Several comic roles sure to stand
out in the production include: Mor
ris Gurley, of the Hi News and
News-Argus staff, as Mr. Gibbs.
Jimmy Cavenaugh, whom you re
member as the reporter in “Best
Foot Forward”, is this time a play-
wright-policeman soundly cracked.
Another character of the law is
Lieutenant Rooney, robustly play
ed by Charles Norwood. And the
performance is given a roaring
climax by Morris Holt as Mr. With
erspoon of Happy Dale Rest Home.
Last but not least the role of
Teddy Brewster is performed by
Steve Dail minus harmonica but
with a slight touch in the head of
believing himself one Theodore
Roosevelt. The play will feature
this character’s spectacular charge
up San Juan Hill.
The student director is Geraldine
Wiggins. The prompter is Kathryn
Newton. Stage setting by Jimmy
Howell, Bobby Williams, Troy Bry
an and the Stagecraft Class. Sound
by Harry Colman. Properties by
Marilyn Best, Betty Best, Martha
Wallace and Betty Jinnette.
