The cast and sponsor, Mr. Wittrig are to be commended for the splendid performance. The perplexing problems of the Martin family ~ntagonized by the truth campaign brought many laughs :from the audience. The Martins who are in need of money to evade bankruptcy, find they must make an impression on a financier who makes a visit at their home on the servants "day off". Mr. Martin, played by Alfred D. Grady and his wife, Jean Miller, drafts their daughter and son, Ruth Ann Liebig and Calvin Per~ rin to play the role of maid and chauffer when their guest arrives and they waste no time in making a proposition with the minister, played by Paul Bender, to act as butler. Martin's sister, (Helen), Ilene Kennard who comes for ~ visit is welcomed by the whole family, but soon finds herself ia the kitchen preparing the meals. Mundorf, the financier played by Joe Chody turns the place into confusion when he questions the servants concerning Mr. Martin and the truth, each member of the family is bound to, almost brings disaster to the Martins, however Aunt Mat played by Mary Kallous is convinced that Martin isn't such a bad fellow after all and gen- erously loans him the money he needs to carry on his ~business. __ Others in the cast were Junior Ehrenfelt, Jane Kallous, Daniel Bender, and Katherine Southwick.

CARD OF THANKS We wish to express o~r sincere thanks and appreciation for your kindness and assure yo~ it shall always be gratefully remem'bered. Mr. and ~rs. Mahlon E. Miller Sgt. Woodrow Liebe of Good- man Field, Ft. Knox Kentucky, was a Saturday ai~ternoon and st~pper guest with his aunt and uncle, Mr. and Mrs. Benell. The Kalona Board of Education has had a very busy time the last few weeks in filling the vacancies in the school caused by men enter- ing the service. Monday night Miss Shirley Jackson was elected to the Commercial position. Miss Jackson will graduate from the Commercial department ofthe State University of Iowa on De- cember 19. She is the only grad- uate from this department avail- able for this position and with her excellent recommendations the Board feels very fortunate at~ this time in securing such a teacher. Mrs. Margaret (Hanft) Reaney, a former teacher of this school, has also been elected to a position in the school and will take over her duties the beginning of the next semester. Mrs. Reaney needs no introduction as she is one of Ka- lona's most popular former teach- ers, She has been ~out of the school only one year and will by no means be a stranger to the student body. Also, Katie Ropp has been elected temporary $~ec- retary in the absence of Lyle Fry. This takes care of the situation to date, ~but other changes are contemplated and plans are being worked out to meet these emer- gencies. Mr. Spivey's departure in a few weeks will leave a va- cancy that cannot ,be fully replac- ed but it is a policy of the Board to provide the best means avail- able, to shift the school program and teachers around so that the normal school activities may be carri,ed out as best they can. The entire community and student body can greatly aid in these ad- justments if they wilt give the new instructors full support and cheerfully accept these changes as they occur.
