ALL THOSE IN FAVOR

A tale told out of the Galesport High School cheerfully chides the premises and practices of sororities- and fraternities- and provides another (Sugar on the Slate) sporadic story of suburban youngsters. Diane Chadwick, partly because of her blossoming correspondence (this has been initiated by her Spanish teacher, Linda Lynn) with a Mexican youngster, Pablo, finds herself rejected by Mu Tau Mu- and then by Hank, her steady; Linda Lynn, and Steve, whom she is to marry, break up the initiation ritual of Mu Tau Mu with a frightening skeleton in a barn, and when the barn burns to the ground, the body is sought; Pablo appears, and the destitute peasant boy provides further discomfiture to the Chadwicks, and an additional humiliation when he is found to be a silver mine heir; and an inter-fraternity demonstration leads to the liberation of a mad bull- and Pablo is further able to prove himself when he subdues him...A soft drink, the carbonation here consists largely of high spirits, this is for an audience which is unsophisticated -even unspoiled.
