Last evening the Parmele theater
was filled to its utmost capacity by
a well pleased audience to witness
the class of 1920 present their class
play, which this year had been se
lected from one of the clever come
dies of the last few years, "What
Happened to Jones".
The comedy is woven around the
startling developments that follows
the visitation of Prof. Goodley with
his prospective son-in-law i? to a so
called glove contest and which sud
denly stopped by the arrival of a
raiding party of police and which is
followed by the escape of the profes
sor and his son-in-law via the spout
ing of the building and are followed
home by "Jones" also a participant
in the unlucky match. To prevent
exposure of themselves and to save
Jones from arrest for assaulting an
officer, the versatile Jones who is a
combined bible and card salesman.
s presented as the brother of the
professor, Anthony Goodley, D. D.,
Bishop of Ballarat. The startling
situation that developes followed the
adoption of the role of the bishop by
Jones makes the play a very interest-
ng one. In the close the real bish
op appears on the scene and after a
harrowing experience is duly rec
ognized and restored to his sweet
heart, Jones is exposed but wins
the lady of his choice.
One of the most effective of the
members of the cast was Miss Henri
etta Waintroub, who appeared as the
wife of the professor and in her part
she was smooth and finished in her
dramatic work. Miss Carla Brandt
divided with the ladies of the cast
the honors of the play and her part
as the romantic old maid sister of
the professor, was one of the most
delightful characters In the play.
Miss Nellie Mae Cowles as the world
ly wise ward of the professor was
very clever and kept "Jones" guess-
ng during the entire play. As the
Swedish maid. Miss Claire Creamer
was delightful and aided materially
n the comedy situations of the play
and displayed to perfection the ser
vant whose palm is constantly itch
ing. Miss Janet Bajeck took the
character of the promised bride of
Richard Heatherly and a daughter
of the professor while Miss Mable
Lee Copen haver appeared as the eld
est daughter who was interested in
Darwin and the theories of evolution
and the younger sister was devoted
to poetry and romance. Miss Myr
tle Petersen appeared as a nurse
caring for the escaped patients from
a sanitarium.
The principal role of the play was
taken by Harley Becker who appear
ed as "Jones" and Mr. Becker car-
ied out this part in a most pleasing
manner and displayed remarkable
cleverness In handling the part of
the traveling man whose line was
bibles in a dead town and a fine as
sortment of playing cards in a "live
one". The unfortunate professor
whose troubles were many and var
ied, was taken by Ernest Janda in
very pleasing manner. Marion
Duxbury appeared as the young man
engaged to the daughter of the pro
fessor and who was responsible for
steering his father-in-law up against
the prize fight that resulted so un
fortunately for them both. As the
real bishop, Harley Cecil gave a
most pleasing presentation of the
character and his contribution to the
offering of the evening aided mater
ially in its success. Principal H. A.
Stromsburg assisted the class by tak
ing the role of the policeman detail
ed for the work of capturing the elu
sive Jones.
The play as a whole was one of
the most Interesting given by a gra
duating class of the school and a
pleasing departure from the usual
line of school plays and affording
a greater opportunity for the young
people to display their talents.
The enjoyment of the play was
slightly marred at the conclusion of
the first act when one of the revolv
ing electric fans in the balcony tore
loose from its fastening and fell, and
very fortunately the fan and the
metal pipe through which the wires
led, fell in the aisle way and did not
injure anyone although the sudden
ness of the accident caused a great
deal of excitement among those sit
ting near the place where the fan
During the Intermission of the.
play Miss Honor Seybert gave a most
pleasing piano selection that was
much enjoyed.

The launching of the paving pro
position out in the residence district
and also along Seventh street from
Washington to Chicago avenue has
caused the property owners along
Main street to desire some change
in the present paving, but of course
this will not interfer with the other
work as Main street would be a pro
position in itself. Just what is de
sired on Main street has not been
fully determined. A five Inch vitri

seems the most popular at the pres

During all the years the Ford Model T One Ton Truck has been on- the mar
ket, we have never had one complaint of rear axle trouble. We have had no
complaints of motor trouble. As the motor and the rear axle are the vital funda
mentals in a motor truck, we have the right to conclude that the Ford One Tor
Truck has not only met the demands of business, but has done so in a satisfactory
end economic way. There is no other evidence so convincing as that which
comes from long practical experience. Ford One Ton Trucks are serving along
all industrial and commercial lines. You will find them everywhere. If these
statements were not facts, the demand for the Ford One Ton Truck would not
be as large as it is, because people are not buying trucks vhich do not give
service. Coupled with the dependability of the Ford One Ton Truck in all classes
of usage, comes the economy in operation and maintenance. On the farm, in
factory delivery, for the merchant, manufacturer, and contractor, in these days
of modern business methods, this worm-driven One Ten Ford Truck has become
an actual necessity. Couc la and talk it over.
