Sfars of 'Oklahoma'
By JOHN UTLEY
Broadway came to Greensboro,
February 21-23! Yes, in all its
glorious color of stars and lights,
The Theatre Guild of New York
brought that wonderful show of
Rodgers and Hammerstien, “Okla
homa,” to Greensboro.
“Oklahoma”—playing five years
on Broadway, with a packed house
every x>erformance—now is appearing
all over the world in different tour
ing companies. Greensboro had the
extreme privilege of seeing the num
ber one company.
Who could have had more fun,
than those select few, who managed
to “meet the stars?” Your “Youth
On the Air” (WGBG-11:30 Satur
day morning) roving reporter, John
Utley, and Bob Murray, Master-cere
monies of program, had the honor of
meeting the stars. With a few
microphones, cables, and a wire re
corder, we itrouped to the National
Theatre, walked in, down some steps,
through a door, down in a dirt
tunnel for 20-30 yards, and up
through an opening, and there to
stare us in the face was Miss Ann
Orowly, the beautiful 18 year co-
star of “Oklahoma.” After setting
up our equipment, we then turned
to Miss Orowly, and I, with my
great supply of curiosity and in
terest, asked her: “What part do
you play in “Oklahoma”? She re
plied “Laiiry”. Miss Orowly has
played in “Okahoma” for the past
four and a half years. She joined
“Oklahoma” when she was only 15.
She has also played in “Carousel”,
and many other Broadway hits.
When asked as to her previous
training, she stated that she had
has no more training than the
average high school girl—such train
ing as singing lessons, and dancing.
Miss Orowly, was exceedingly in

school, but not college.
At that moment, Miss Orowly had
to return to the stage for the remain
der of the act. So we turned, and
walked down the hall to see a hand

that he was “Curly”! This man
was Mr. Milton Clary, who co-stars
with Miss Orowly. Mr. Clary is

been singing professionally for about
six years. As an interesting side
light, it should be noted that Mr.
Clary’s lucky day is Friday the
13th. He joined “Oklahoma,” Fri
day, June 13, 1947.
One of the most charming and
entertaining persons we talked to
was Miss Alicia Krug. Miss Krug
is a professional ballet dancer. She
danced with Laury in the dream
ballet sequence of the show.
In addition to the above persons,
we talked to Murvyn Vye (Jud),
Roy Milton (“Curly”) in dream
ballet, Edith Gresham (Aunt Eller),
and a few chorus girls, as well as
Hy Anzei, the peddler.
As a rule, most of the stars,

It is remarkable to note that
most of the stars of “Oklahoma”
prefer the professional stage to
Hollyw'ood, or radio.
We shall always remember the
warmth and kindness which these
great people of “Oklahoma” gave us.
“Oklahoma” is a great show, and
this same adjective—great—des
cribes its cast.
So w'as an evening, backstage

After high school—what? One of
the most important decisions any
young person must make is that of
choosing a career. Hundreds of
jobs are open to qualified persons—
jobs in the fields of radio, journal
ism, personnel, chemistry,' medicine
banking, labor relatioss, engineering’
machine shop work, busines admins
tration, agriculture, electricity, de
signing, law. printing, masonry
public relations. The list could go
on and on. Choosing one career
from so many often puts a person
in quite a daze as he trys to survey
the entire 'field.
Many factors enter into the final
choice. First of all, what career
holds the most interest for you?
Will you be able to adjust yourself
satisfactorily to the working condi
tions of that career? How much
preparation is necessary? What
about hours and salary? Can your
chosen career be followed in the
section of the country in which you
want to live? What about retire
ment provisions in this career?
What opportunities are there for
advancement? Questions to be con
sidered are almost endless.
As Senior High approaches Career
Day, the library staff invites each
student to see the books and pamph
lets availahe on various careers.
The library has material on almost
any career in which you may be
interested. Up-to-date pamphlets
will answer many of your questions.
Books on careers are plentiful.
W^e sugest a few helpful books
and pamphlets. “Your Plans for the
Future,” by Detjen, points out the
important things to consider in
choosing a career, getting your first
job, and holding your job. Choosing
the right career asd analyzing your
self for the job are discussed in the
pamphlet “How to Choose a Career,”
by Humphreys. A discussion of vari
ous careers, landing the job you
want, and advancing on the job will
be found in “Get the Job,” by Abra
