fttaed as ttcdvct JEFFERSON REPORTER, Thursday, April 2, 1 973- -! '3 uu Gyco's pod (Continued from Page 1) Dr. J. A. Bishop, a local physician will play the role of the undertaker, who is a gossip in Grovers Corners. Several other local celebrities will have small parts or on and off the stage roles in the play. Cast production general manager is Betty Elswick who was the prime moving factor in the founding of the Jeffersontown Branch Library. It was her remark to Reverend Jamie Tyrrell that started the theater group in Jeffersontown. One evening Miss Wlswick, the minister and several other individuals were discussing some of the things needed in Jeffersontown for improvement of the city. Miss Elswick remarked that a theater would be a good idea. The two along with Rhoda Peters and Carter Ormsby got together with Jon Jory, director of Actors Theater in Louisville, and he agreed to help. Reverend Tyrrell was named business manager, an attorney was consulted and a corporation was formed. From this small beginning the theater group was formed and the first play is nearly ready to open. A second play to follow "Our Town" is now being planned. Tyrrell appointed Ed Stevenson assistant business manager in charge of ticket sales. Tickets for the first performance may be purchased directly from Stevenson by phoning 267-171-5 or picked up at Liberty National Bank, Jeffersontown Branch, after April 1 for $2. Each area club was asked to make a $50 donation and most responded. They are to receive $200 in return for selling tickets. The $50 covers stage props and costumes for the first play. Assisting Rhoda Peters in direction will be Nancy Smith, Jeffersontown High School drama teacher. Assistant stage manager will be Barbara Patrick and technical director is Carter Ormsby. Ormsby is a graduate of Ringling School of Art, Sarasota, Florida, and was very active in the Sarasota Players. 30U YQBDffEfl (Continued from Page 1) I the nationally known recording group Blood, Sweat and Tears. I At the program, set for 8 p.m. at Freedom ,Hall on Monday, April 13, several awards of !$100 and a medal will be presented to area youths who have been selected as outstanding, although it is not known yet how many. There will be up to 1 0 winners. "Saving bonds are being given rather than scholarships," said Stevens, "because some may be won by youths not in school." Nominations for teenagers aged 13 through 19 eligible for the awards were made earlier this month and will be judged during Youth Recognition Week by a selection committee of four adults and three teenagers. Judging will be based on outstanding achievements or contributions to the community. The nominee fc"bHchod-d- Jm-- ti number of activities alone will not be the determining factor. Nominations would be made by anyone "who is in a position to make an objective evaluation of a young person."

Electrical work for the stage was done by a local electrician, who was described as being an actor at heart. Mrs. McQuire said the $ 1 ,400 retail cost of the job was given to the group for $67. The name of the electrician was withheld. A table and chairs were donated by Bill Canada, of the Chamber of Commerce. With the help of these and many others in the community who have donated their time and efforts the first play looks like a success, commented Mrs. McQuire, and the theater is going to mean "great progress for the ,-- wt Caull EteSoaso Qc!c23C3 ' Civic, women'i and business and g -- Plea (Continued from Page 1) thought that all their needs would be provided for them in the shelter. While enough food, water and medical supplies are stocked in the shelter to provide for y waiting period before radiation the would have sufficiently disappeared to allow people to leave the cave, each individual is responsible for bringing certain items along with him. He should put on as many of the warmest clothes as he can wear and bring blankets, because the concrete basements of the shelter or cave being utilized are very cold at night He should bring an air mattress or inflatable raft to keep him off the concrete floor while sleeping. A flashlight and batteries are essential. If there is an infant in the family or someone on a restricted diet, milk or special food must be carried along. If a family member is dependent on a particular medicine, it must be remembered. A transistor radio should be kept at hand so the civil defense office can keep in touch with the people and relay any new instructions. The plan also calls for more than a thousand shelter managers to be trained to organize and run the various shelters. "We hope we'll never have to use the shelters or the supplies," commented Kinkead. "But if something ever does happen, it will be a very good thing that we have them. We believe we might be lucky enough to have a couple hours warning before a nuclear attack. That would give people time to get to the nearest shelter. The most unfortunate thing is that families would have to be separated if the children were at school, the fathers at work, and the mothers at home. But there is nothing that can be done about it." Included in the 600 shelters described in the supplement is a cavelike limestone quarry location near the Watterson Expressway and Poplar Level Road. It is one of the few roofed quarries in the country and probably the only one under the city. A spring fed lake runs through parts of the cave and it was stocked with food and medical supplies by the civil defense people several years ago. The cave, which would be home for two weeks to many Reporterlanders in case of an attack, could easily shelter 78,000 poeple, according to Kinkead. The food, some of which has been there since the stocking of the cave was begun in 1 963, is packed to last 20 years. Kinkead is not aware of any other manmade caves being used for defense centers, Mammoth, Carlsbad and the large natural caves, he says, would be impractical for food storage because of the great streams of tourists constantly passing through.

Drake Bishop g will exhibit his oil paintings April 8, 10, 1 1 , 12 at the new Jeffersontown playhouse, formerly the old Jeffersontown Presbyterian Church, of which he is a' member. A whimsical bit of nostalgia is Drake's "three dimensional cartoon" of a tavern scene. The hats, faces, and hands of all the men are carved from peach seeds. Each character is fashioned so that all joints are movable. The scene is so realistic that the artist even left cigarette butts on the floor near the spitoon and an exact number of keys on the piano. "Horses of the Bluegrass" was awarded first place in the Jeffersontown Woman's Club Art show in 1 964. In 1 965 he repeated his first place win in the same art contest with his entry "Bounty," a painting of the famed H.M.S. Bouncy of mutiny fame. 'The Sikh" won first place in the Louisville Y.M.C.A. Art Show in 1967. Since that time Drake has not entered any competitions. He has been busy, however, and plans to display three recent paintings. "My Mother," an oil painting of his own mother was completed after her death in 1969, and will be shown for the first time. professional clubs in the area have been asked to devote their programs during this period to youth oriented activities. A free concert by the U. S. Marine Band is set for Saturday, April 18, at Convention Center. The event is primarily for younger children. A beauty contest will be held Saturday, April 1 1 , for girls representing area high schools to select a Youth Recognition Week Queen.
