Cast Picked To Give Story of ‘Anne Frank’ The life of a young girl in an attic in Amsterdam will come alive on Nov. 9 when the Mars Hill College Dramateers present “The Diary of Anne Frank.” Based upon the book, Anne Frank: Di ary of a Young Girl, it has been dramatized by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett. during halftime ceremonies at the football game Oct. 12, the first home game, against Georgia Mili tary College. Sharing the spotlight with her that afternoon will be Debbie Dancy, attractive sophomore from Stamford, Conn., who has been selected by the team members as the “1963 Football Queen.” Normally the football co-cap tains crown the queen, but this year the squad has tri-captains. Buddy Windle, Terry Postell and Ron Henderson. This may present a problem as to how they can all three share in the pleasant task of crowning the queen. Movie Schedule Sept. 28 — “The Notorious Landlady” Oct. 5 — “Erik, The Con queror” Enrolment Hits All-Time High An all-time high in enrollment for the fall semester, 1285 stu dents, has been achieved by Mars Hill College in its first year as a liberal arts senior college. According to statistics released this week by the registrar’s of fice, there are 706 men and 679 women, as compared to last year’s first-semester total of 1141. A breakdown shows there are 167 seniors, 255 juniors, 369 sophomores and 499 freshmen. Five students are unclassified. The honor of being the first student to complete his registra tion and, therefore, enroll as a senior went to David E. Shaw of Pfafftown near Winston. He is majoring in business administra tion. Two Coeds Fill Home Ec Posts Two seniors majoring in home economics, Catherine Powell of Mt. Holly and Lynette Robinson pf Pennington Gap, Va., have been elected to positions of leadership by the Mars Hill Chapter of the American Home Economics Asso ciation. Miss Powell was tabbed to rep resent the chapter on the plan ning committee for the state col lege club workshop to be held next spring. She is in Greensboro today to discuss the workshop. Miss Robinson was named treas urer of the chapter to replace Virginia Freeman, who was re cently married to Don Radford. Playing the lead role of Anne is newcomer Kathy Young sup ported by Arlis Suttles and Crae Collins as Mr. and Mrs. Frank, Anne’s parents. Mary Horton plays the part of Miep, who help ed hide the Frank family in the attic. Mimi Jones and Reid Potter play the parts of Mr. and Mrs. Vann Dann, who were responsible for helping Mr. Frank find a job and place to live when he got to Holland. Others in the cast include Mike Yelton as Peter; Rosemary McCall as Margot; Henry Walden, Mr. Kraler; and Mayon Weeks who plays the part of Mr. Dussell, the dentist. Written by Anne Frank, the story covers three years during World War II and immediately afterwards. Anne, a 13-year-old Jewish girl was forced into hiding with her family and four other people over a factory in Amster dam. In two acts, three years are lived. The play is of the lives of these eight people and the world that changes them. It is a mar velous story, seen through the eyes of a young girl growing up during the time when age was meaningless. It is written with love, courage and a sense of hu mor rare in books of this type. Anne Frank died with her mother, sister, and boy friend in a concentration camp some where in Europe. The only sur vivor of her family was her fath er Otto Frank, who had Anne’s diary published. It has turned into one of the most loved stories ever written. The Diary of a Young Girl has been translated from Dutch into all the major languages of the world and has been made into a movie. Anne Frank has become the symbol of senseless persecution and hatred throughout the world. Foundations have been set up in her name all over Holland, and the refuge where she stayed has been made into one of the chief tourist attractions in Holland. On the Mars Hill Scene ...
