Fundraiser by Yearbook staff in 1940

Vincennes Sun Commercial March 15, 1940

Students Plan Farce By Men
Annual Staff of LTHS Lining Up Cast.

Lawrenceville, Ill.  March 15—Members of the annual (yearbook)  staff of the Lawrenceville Township high school will continue their efforts to line up a cast of business and professional men to participate in a “womanless bridge party” to be staged in the gym next Monday evening.
   The presentation admittedly sets a new high in dramatic comedy, the students say, and is being offered to raise money for publication of the annual in the spring.
   About 80 Lawrenceville men will be in the cast, taking roles of women at an afternoon around the bridge table.  Featured during the evening will be specialty numbers that will unearth undreamed of talent in the usually sedate and dignified businessmen of the city.

( Ed Note:  Does anyone remember their father or grandfather being involved with this 'farce'?
