Contest winner to witness life in the trenches

Jim Preston, a retired Campus Community Police officer, won Wednesday’s DailyNews trivia quiz and its prize of two tickets to the University Players production of Journey’s End, continuing through Dec. 3 in the Essex Hall Theatre.

Preston’s entry was drawn from all those which correctly identified Over There as written by George M. Cohan, All Quiet on the Western Front as providing a German perspective on WWI, and Wings as the winner of the first best picture Oscar.

The University Players’ drama, written by a veteran of the First World War, gives audiences a look into everyday military life. Performances Wednesday through Saturday are at 8 p.m.; matinees Saturday and Sunday are at 2 p.m. Order tickets online at or by phoning 519-253-3000, ext. 2808.
