BOARD APPROVES SCHOOL PLAYERS USING FIDDL-ETS Oral Agreement Is Reached With Stage Union on Auditorium. Approval of the purchase of 30 fiddl-ets and three cello-ets was given by the board of education at a regular meeting Monday afternoon in the Administration building. These instruments, altho requiring the same skill as a violin, overcome certain handicaps t h a t the beginner encounters with a cheap violin, the board was told. Supt. F. T. Vasey presented the subject, explaining how the beginning pupils encountered much difficulty in keeping the cheap violins in tune. Fiddl-ets, he said, remain in time easily and require the same technic as violins. Cost $5 Eiich Their tune is subdued, however, and the fiddl-ets cannot be used for regular playing. He advanced the idea that the fiddl-ets, which only cost S5 each, are a better instrument for the beginners than violins and represent a smaller investment. The cost for instruction was raised from $3 to $·! a quarter to allow for . payment of these instruments.

Mr. Cota said that if a un.ioi stagehand was employed at outskli engagements, the -boys could stil A t t e n t i o n -- When have you checked u p on the health of your scalp?
