Northside Grammar
Grades Present ''Sally
Ann Finds Herself"
The Grammar Grades of North-
side Elementary School presented
a two-act comedy “Sally Ann
Finds Herself” May 9th. . ^
The play centered around a
shy, modest basketball player
who didn’t know she was good
until her team needed her. She
saved the day thus bringing her
team to a glorious victory. Strange
as it may seem, the names of
the two teams were Lincoln and
Hillside. Of course Lincoln came
out the victor. Hillside was de
feated 18-36. Changing the
names of the teams to those of
teams we knew, arid our sister ‘
school, gave the play more rea
lism than was ever dreamed pos
Directresses for the presenta
tion were Miss M. I. Boyd and
Mrs. M. B. Cobb.
