FALL FESTIVAL ISSUE THE HAND SHAKE JNO. T. JACKSON 3rd EDITOR Published Weekly By The Polygon Club VOL. 1 Portsmouth, Va., October 25, 1937 No. 33

FALL FESTIVAL Tonite we present "The Mysterious Mr. Mason", the fourth and final feature in our fall festival program. This play, a three act comedy of high finance, brings you the Glen Wells players in a show that should be entertaining and enjoyable. The "Lucille Elmore Revue", presented last week, drew a capacity crowd and may favorable comments were made by persons attending this show. Miss Elmore added local color to the show in her references to Laurence Wilkinson and Bob Allison. If you were not there, you missed a treat. Ticket returns are not yet complete, and until all tickets are in, a complete report on the financial success of this years program cannot be made.

EDITORIAL The publication of The Handshake requires a great deal of work in order to carry out the plan of having a paper that is both interesting and representative of club ideals. The Budget for 1937-38 has allocated a good part of receipts for carrying on this work and it is only fair for the members appointed to edit the paper to set aside the time necessary to do this work as it should be done. Each appointment is made for two or three weeks and you should try to do the best you can during your term. The object of The Polygon Club is to encourage and promote service, health, fellowship, education and progress among the members and in the community in an atmosphere of Christian living.
