West Side Girls Find Thrills In Old World Tour Friends on the West Side are in receipt of interesting1 letters from Miss Bernice Moore and Miss Gladys Wagner, of this city, who are on St three months concert tour of Europe with the Westminster choir of Dayton, Ohio. A part of one the Miss Moore's letter is herewith reproduced: "Greetings from Prague. The Prague Teachers choir was in America, you know, and visited Dayton. Of course we did all we could to make their stay interesting and now they are returning the compliment. "Last night we were in Vienna and guests at the opera, 'Rosa Cavaliera', played by a very good cast. The opera house is very lovely and since we had given two concerts there it was quite thrilling for us to listen, for a change. besides yours truly and friend Gladys along with some others sat in the 'Royal Box'. "We have been snapped so much over here that I almost hate the sight, of a camera. It was really funny at our first concert in Berlins The German press sponsored the concert which was the social event of the year, but all during the concert cameras were clicking away like mad. At that concert each of us were presented with a bronze medal for our accomplishments. "In Gagreb, Jugoslavia, a little different experience. We arrived about 6 p. m. It is an old city so they had rather a small station though not so small as the Monon station at home. On approaching it we saw the streets full of people and to our amazement discovered they were there to greet us. There were thousands of them peering at us as if we were a great curiosity. "After a 'welcome speech' we endeavored to break through the ranks and make our way to the hotel and they went along form ing an aisle for us to walk through and clapping and cheering as if we were a victorious regiment returning from the front. "So to our hotel we marched to be greeted by our own glorious Stars and Stripes waving over the door. We entered, lined up and sang, 'The Star Spangled Banner' at the tops of our voices. Surely it was a thrill. "That evening "we were enter tained in the Lord Mayor's home and had some real Jugoslavia delicacies. You may be Bure we had a packed house at our con cert there many standing. We were also presented with a beau tiful laurel wreath. "Every city presents a different thrill, it seems. In Budapest, we saw the Hungarian palace. We have seen palaces before but this one is by far the most gorgeous. It has 866 rooms but we only saw 32, the ceremonial rooms. Wonder ful marble walls, sparkling crystal chandeliers and lovely antique furniture. It was just vacated In 1913 so it is quite modern and well preserved. "We gave a concert in Paris, but our stay was so short there was no time for sight-seeing. We have another concert there June 1 and do not sail for home until June 5 so we will have a little time then to see Paris. "Our first concert over here was in Bristol Instead of London. Bristol claimed it as their first right because they maintain the Cabots who lived there, discovered America. A wreath given us at the London concert we placed on the Unknown Soldiers' tomb in Westminster Abbey. "I've been so busy reminiscing over my thrills that I've failed to mention the perfect weather which we had in crossing the ocean. We hope to enjoy our homeward trip on the 'George Washington' as much but 'Miss Liberty' will - be more enjoyed and appreciated than ever before". Sermon Ushers In Gala Week The Rev. Melvin C. Hunt, pas tor of the First Methodist church, addressed the members of the graduating class of the West Lafayette high school at the annual baccalaureate services held Sun day evening at the First Methodist church.
