In a production high-lighted by
good music and fine performance

and good stage deportment. Un
like some ingenues in me pasi

every word and every note she
sang. Marilyn Lehr, with Gibson,
was pasilv the center of every eye,
and sane with the same relish and

Iformance in last year's show.
Ellie Guilliat was excellent in
her portrayal of Mrs. Harcourt, as
was Dick Marrs as Sir Evelyn.
Marian McCulloch was also very
brassy in a very brassy role
Anything Goes is the third in
a series of musicals presented by
the Kosmet Klub. In general, the

A "life saving" station will bo

The station will supply motor

The tape will be placed on the

$1 by Lincoln Junior Chamber

Applied in one-inch strips
across the bumper of the automo

The effectiveness of the tape
