This play was their first for the year. It marked the opening of the annual Spring Festival weekend, and proved to be a fitting initiation to a fun-filled weekend. Playing to a capacity crowd numbering well over two hundred, the plot opened with a bang, developed into a rip- roaring complexity of unheard-of situations, and ended with un­ believable ease. The story evolves around the laugh-p r o v o k i n g consequences brought upon Ruth, the twenty- two year old heroine by her adoles cent sister, Miriam, who innocent­ ly sent love letters and poems tfj a lieutenant overseas. The plot thickened when the lieutenant, William Seawright, returned home expecting amours from the un suspecting Ruth. More confusion was evoked due to the fact that Ruth was engaged to a “stuffy\ bank executive. Albert Kummer. At what seemed to be t.ie climax Bill was told of the letters and Ruth’s engagement and left the scene. However, the anti-climax occurred when the lieutenant re­ turned unexpectedly and Ruth changed her mind. The cast included: Deletion Don­ ald Forth as the jovial negro maid, Dora, Shirley Harrington as the understanding mother, Mrs. Edith Wilkins: DorotJ.iy James as the \old-beyond-her-years\ sister, Mir­ iam; J. Patrick Lynch. Jr. as the facetious Judge H arry Wilkins; Rae Haley as the charming Ruth Wilkins; Edward D. Pakenham as the friendly, yet forward. Lieuten­ ant William Seawright; A rthur Lebow as the bank executive, Al­ bert Kummer; Eileen Crary as Martha, the sweet sister of the lieutenant; Andrew Rhubottom as the helpful sergeant, Chuck Vin cent; David Mvnott as the soldier who rang down t.ie curtain at its hilarious climax. The big day will soon be here for graduation is just around the corner. It will take place on June 11th at 2:30 p.m. in St. John’s in the Wilderness church on the Paul Smith’s College property ad­ joining the football field. We have been very fortunate this year in securing Dr. John G. Albright as guest speaker. Dr. Al­ bright is now head of the Physics departm ent of Rhode Island State College. He formerly taught a t Case Institute of Technology where Mr. Buxton had the op­ portunity to study under him. Tne topic he has chosen for his talk is “Realistic Philosophy”. The program that has been set up for the graduation ceremonies is as follows: The Processional Opening Exercises By Mr. Buxton Invocation Introduction of the Board of Trustees By Mr. Cubley Presentation of Awards Address by Dr. Albright Message from the President Presentation of Diplomas Benediction Recessional Mrs. Ursala Clute, the wife of a former student, will sing a selec­ tion and Mrs. Stanley Wojciak will be the organist. The ceremony will be a very colorful one with the graduating class dressed in forest green robes and the faculty wearing robes and hoods denoting their college and degrees. Four tickets will be provided for each graduating student but there will be enough room for all who wish to attend. Rooms for the parents of the graduates have been set up at White Pine Camp. A recent Albany press release announced that Paul Smiths is one of two junior colleges in the state granted the privilege of awarding associate degrees. These degrees will be Associate of Art, to Liberal A rts graduates, and Associate of Applied Science, to students of Forestry and Re­ sort Management. However, all students will not be eligible for a degree at this time
