PRINCESS VIRGINIA HONORED By Rent Perkins The Girls' League coronation breakfast honoring Forest Fes- tival Princess Virginia Hellatz was held in the school cafeteria April 20 from 6 to 9 a.m. With the superb food prepared under the capable direction of Eli- zabeth Bennett, dbmestic science teacher, and Nellie Chappell, erie- teria manager, the breakfast was not only a gastronomic delight but also a financial success.

CIRCU DATES SET "The Circus is Coming"! are words that have always thrilled and delighted both young and old, and we are now happy to report that dates have definitely been set for e "Greatest Show on Earth," a gigantic, colossal, stu- pendous, sensational and amaz- ing three-ring spectacle, which is to be presented in the Mary M. Knight gynmasium on the eve- nings of-May 10, 11 and 12. Thrills galore are promised with death-defying feats of tight wire walking, aerial acrobatics, tumb- ling, balancing, bounding rope acts, knife throwing and many others to quicken the pulse and • provide an evening of unparalleled excitement and eritertainment. After weeks ()f patient and pain- staking rehearsals the show is al- most ready "to go on the road," although there was considcrable delay due to a series of epidem- ics which apparently had no re- spect for circus perf(rmers. This is the second week of pray. tice with the circus teeter-board which is similar to a teeter-totter @ of She/ton A subsidiary of P. N. Hirsch & Co. formerly Lumbermen's Mercantile on which a person jumping on one end flips a second person on the opposite end. The board being ued was loaned by the Wenatchee Youth Circus.

Three sectional meetlng were double somersaults are being prac- conducted on topics of special in- ticed with the aid of the "me- chanic" or overhead tumbling belt. The unsupported Turkish lad- ders ate in operation with six girls and one boy on them• The girls will be attired in harem costumes which are being made by Mrs. Frank Hollatz and Mrs. Alvin Owen These ladies are devoting a great dea.] of time on the ward- robe for the show which includes an Uncle Sam suit for the stilt walker. The tight wire walkers, jugglers on the wire and on the unicycles are putting in a great deal of practice. Plans for "Clown Alley" are likewise shaping up and will provide a lot of original gags and stunts. A LOT OF WORK is being done to perfect' the tumbling and bal- ancing acts, the bull whip stunts and the spinning ropes. Construc- tion of animal and other charac- ters was delayed because of ill- ness but is now progressing rap]'d- ly and all should be in readiness for the grand opening. It is understood that a first class "impalement" or knife throwing act {s being imported and that one of our courageous and daring young ladies has consent- ed to act as a target. It is rumored that Tom urphy is slated to toss the hardware and we hope he is not suffering from any visual def- icmney. The animal trainers find that a few dogs complain about walk- ink on their hind legs and tlk of striking for additional ham- burgers and fringe benefits. In all probability there will be some anl- real actors of rather tender years. The school board has approved the purchase of a public address system which should prove bene- ficial in staging our show and also a big help at the forthcoming graduation exercises. The entire show is bemg pro- duced and directed by Jack Hog- ben. himself an enthusiastic cir- cus fan and a member of Circus Fans of America. Hogben is per- sonallv acquainted with nany of the leading circus executives and pcrfomners who have generously loaned him equipment and given invaluable tdvice an(l" assistance toward making a succcss of the forthcoming production. ALL SCIIOOL TALENT SHOW The finest that Mary M Knight bad to offer in musical talent was presented in the annual talent show held in the school auditorium last Thursday by Dick Endicott ident, said Mutchler also will serve on AFPI's National Council of forest industry leaders concern- ed with the forest resource.
