Ploy A Success
Last Friday and Saturday
evenings East Yancey High
School presented its junior-sen
ior play, Look Homeward An'
gel, for the citizens of crttf
community. The play was a de
finite success, and it seems
that everyone who saw it has
only praise for the efforts of
all involved. Mrs. Elizabeth
Wcstail, director, said the stud
ents had fulfilled all her ex
pectations and that she didn’t
know of any group, high school
or otherwise, who had worked
as hard as the cast and com
mittees in preparation for
those two big nights last week.
Both performances saw a
large and receptive audience,
and the dramatics department
expresses its thanks to every
, one for supporting this annual
activity. Some have expressed
the opinion that this version
of “Look Homeward Angel’’'
was just as impressive as the
version presented by the Park
way Playhouse two years ago.
The more than $400.00 made
from the play will be applied
toward production of next
year’s junior-senior play and

has been going for three or
more years and a 4-H Club
has recently been organized.
A need for a good recreation
program has been felt for
some time.
A group of boys are already
practicing for a Little League
ball team under the supervis

The group, after listening to
Mr. Powers and Mr. Dilling

weekly meetings will be neces

get plans going without too
much delay. A partial slate of

At the present time the hos

been for 19 years, when Mr.

floors, which is very inconven

Mr. Ellis says.
There are about 100 knitting
machines now in operation,
with approximately 40 em

will be expanded to around 200

The new building with ap

According to Mr. Ellis, the
building should be completed
and new knitting machines un
