THE GOOSE HANGS HIGH

     The Play, an optimistic comedy of family loyalty and affection, brings the younger generation face to face with the older. The earlier scenes portray a family in which the parents are indulgent an the children wilful. Suddenly the family face the prospect of poverty. Comedy and pathos are delightfully interwoven in the course of the play, which has been enthusiastically praised by the critics.

Ruth is quiet but friendly. She is one
  of the few girls in our class who has

  in her chosen work of teaching.

  He delights his friends by playing a
  Hawaiian guitar.
