on Ivy Day.
The Seniors presented, "The Three
Chauffeurs" Wednesday evening after'
the ten-minute class programs. This
la a two-act comedy and afforded a
vehicle for a number of local and per
sonal hits. The play opens with a
jolly bunch of girls enjoying lunch
with Mrs. Markley, who is giving a
girls' house party. One of the girls
receives a note saying that a friend
of hers, Gertrude Castloton, is coming
to join the party disguised as a coun
try bumpkin, Melindy Pike. Melindy
appears and makes a sensation among
the girls. The inevitable man next
appears and makes a date with Betty
"in the garden at eight tonight." He
is dressed in auto togs and so Kitty
plans to fix up as a chauffeur and
have some fun with Betty by Imper
sonating her lover. Beverly Churchill,
who has known Gertrude Castleton,
arrives and recognizes her in her dis
guise, but does not let her know it..
Kitty, dressed as a chauffeur, is mis
taken for a man, but refuses to smoke
a cigar and has the joke turned on
herself. Ghurchilr appears again,
Melindy is' identified, the mysteries
are all solved and everything ends
Everyone was6speclally good in
their part and the costumes In the
second act were particularly beauti
ful and appropriate.
