Seventeen High School Pupils drove
to Ainsworth to compete in the High
School Scholastic Contest held Satur
day, April 14th. Miss Beighley and
Miss Turner chaperoned the groups
Due to the few schools that were en
tered in this meet there is at present
a feeling that the Ainsworth district
should be combined with the Wayne
district. This would reduce the num
ber of winners from those schools up
in this part of the state. The places
won and by whom will be given in this
account next week.
An Inter-Class Track and Field meet
will be held at the Fair Grounds, Fri
day, April 20. It will prove to be a
real contest between the Juniors and
Seniors, due to two or three hard
fought battles on the School CampGs
during the past week—as to which
class would reign supreme.
“The Hoodoo’ was presented by the
Junior Class of the O’Neill High
School, April 12th, at the K. C. Hall.
The play was a financial as well as an
artistic success and much credlit should
be given to both the coach and sponsor
not alone for the excellent coaching
but for the selection of the characters
Charles Hancock as Brighton Early,
is engaged to Amy Lee—Amolia Mer
rell, niece of Mrs. Perrington. Shine,
played by Beryl Winchell, at whose
home the wedding is to take place. The
guests are arriving and among them
Professor Solomon Spigget—Virgil
Johnson, a cousin of Brighton's and
an authority on Egypt. He presents
Brighton with un Egyptian Scarab as
a wedding gift, and then the trouble
begins. Everyone who wears the scar
ab is "hoodooed.” Brighton finds him
self confronted by u former sweetheart
Dodo de Graft, a chorus girl—Neva
Obcrly, who threatens suit unless
Brighton pays her $30,000 for some of
his former loiters. Brighton’s friend,
Billy Jackson — Francis Tenborg, wear
the pin and finds himself «■ igngcd to
three girls at once. A burglar—Sho
bert Edwards, old Santy Claus, enters
and apparently is getting away with
all the bric-a-brac until he takes the
srarab and is caught. At the end,
however, all the plots are unraveled
ami the ’•hoodoo" nrojterly buried.
The parts were ail played excellently
and the whole production showed much
