step in the right direction.”
If the pilot program in recycling
yields favorable results, then a city-
wide curbside recycling program
should be implemented.
Upchurch says the City Council
**does not anticipate a failure, but a
success” with the pilot program.

Comedy Club Is A

Meredith Entertainment Asso
ciation’s Comedy Club opened with
this year’s first act Sqjtember 6 in Le
Greenhouse. Paul E. Orwick and
Walter Coppage were Electric Zoot
Suit, a comedy team that performed
at Meredith last year.
Their act was a combination of
skits, improvisation, and a variation
of the play “MacBeth,” or as they
called it “MacBreath.” Three stu
dents “volunteered” to participate in
the play. Everyone enjoyed seeing
their friends a part of the act.
Electric Zoot Suit was entertain
ing and worth seeing. If you missed
the comedy team this time, be sure to
watch for their return.
MEA did a great job of decorat
ing Le Greenhouse and providing
nachos and salsa for refreshments. I
had never been to the Comedy Club
and was surprised at all the time
MEA put into it. Le Greenhouse
looked like a little nightclub.
MEA’s Comedy Club will pres
ent other acts throughout the year.
Watch for flyers that announce the
acts and be sure to check out MEA’s
