"Follies berserk" begin Thursday
by Dave Chauncey-Sports Editor

Hawthorne High's Varsity Club will present its second annual Varsity Club Follies next Thursday and Friday, April 21 and 22.
Both performances will begin at 8pm and will be presented in Nyman Hall. Tickets are $1.00
Tom DeMary will act as Master of Ceremonies at the "all new" show. Following the same pattern as last year there will be the crazy skits and funny sketches, but the Varsity Club has brought out a new twist this year with two new acts. Yostaka Ban, Olympic wrestling star from Japan, will put on a demonstration with Rick Bollinger on Greco-Roman wrestling.

A second added attraction will be a Kindo match performed by two Japanese enthusiasts. Kindo is an exciting and fascinating sport. It combines quickness, strength, and stamina.
