"Mr. Bob" a play in two acts, was presented to the public by
the Junior Class on February 24, 1928, for the benefit of the
The scenes were laid in the home of Miss Becky, an old maid
with a house full of cats. Miss Becky, played by Nova Rogers,
is contemplating remodeling her home to have a thoroughly up-to-
date home for stray cats. Her nephew, Philip, played by Tommie
Murphy, objects to her doing this.
Miss Becky's niece, Evelyn Bryan, a very frivilous young girl,
has as her visitor her college chum, Bob. Philip, who has never
seen her, gives her the title Mr. thinking that she is the boy
with whom Kitty is in love.
Philip promises to give up his yachting if Aunt Becky will give
up her cats .
Bob, Dana Dismuke, and Kitty make it up that Bob will
sail Philip's yacht in the coming race, as Philip has promised to
give up yachting.
Mr. Brown, the man who came down, Robert Alexander, is
incidentally given the names, Mr. Bob, Mr. Brown, Mr. Saunders,
and Mr. Bob again by different members of the family. He is
just a poor, misguided fellow until it comes out that he is not one
of the men that the others take him for but rather Mr. Brown,
the man who came down to bring Philip some important papers.
Mr. Bob wins the race and with it Philip's heart, and it comes
out that Philip had fallen in love with her the preceding summer
when he had met her at a summer resort. Her true identity is
proven when she wins the race.
The Romeo and Juliet act by Patty, the maid, Bessie Mae
Yeager, and Jenkins, the butler, Herman Webb, and their antics
throughout the play added much merriment.
Altogether it was an hour and a half of laughs and was voted
by those who saw it, as one of the cleverest, best directed and
acted plays given in the High School.
Miss Blanche V. Adams was the coach and Mr. E. E. Baucom
the publicity man.
