MARCH 7 I |1»34 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE SEVEN Unique Story Telling Is.Art of Sarah Fink Mason City School Children' Enjoy Programs by Des Moines Woman. "Fifteen men on a dead man's chest," ^ang John Silver and then plotted the mutiny by which the pirates were to find Flint's treasure while young: Jim hid in an apple'bar- rel and listened. The thrills of "Treasure Island" are being brought to Mason City school children this week by Sarah Fink of Des Moines who is presenting a series of pro- grama of fairy tales and folk lore here under the sponsorship of the Lincoln P. T. A. Through colorful costumes and cleverly manipulated masks, Mrs. Fink tells the stories of "Robin Hood." "Cinderella," "Little Black Sambo," "RumplestUskln," 'The Wolf and the Three Little Pigs" and others. Mrs. Fink changes from one character to another with great facility and the narratives come to life with vividness and charm. Ben Dunn who had been marooned on Treasure Island for so long 1 that he yearned for Christian diet and dreamed of toasted cheese; John Silver, the best man by a long sea mile, and Dr. Livsey who led the treasure hunters live again in Mrs. Fink's telling of the Robert Louis Stevenson story. The story of Cinderella is among the most attractive in Mrs. Fink's repertory and the transformation of the little kitchen drudge into a princess is made particularly effective by the change from a patched black frock into a shimmering pink party gown. The dwarf who plotted so confidently against the queen because he was sure ahe could never guess his name, Rumplestiltskin, the greedy girl who ate five pies and became the wife of the king because her mother was ashamed to tell of her greed are the characters of one of the familiar fairy tales which does well in Mrs. Fink's interpretation. Indian braves and medicine men appear in a story of the lives of the American Indians which tells how an Indian boy became a brave and won the name of Stout Heart through courageous kindess. Mrs. Fink's story telling has much appeal for the children. Roger Patrick of the sixth grade at Harding school attended the Harding school assembly and wrote the following comment on Mrs. Fink's work, "The children of Harding school heard Aunt Sarah Fink of Des Moines tell some very interesting stories, in telling these she used masks and costumes. The children enjoyed the stories very much. Two that were especially liked were ·Robin Hood' and 'Cinderella.' " SLAM BANG By TOM O'NEIL Most slams need exchange of in- 'ormation, such as rebids and showing of mutual support and primary control of suits for safe bidding. There'can be exceptional hands in which no dilly-dallying is necesary, and the quicker the slam bid the setter. Walter H. McKeag of Brooklyn ihought he held one such hand, and his jump had the virtue of inducing an ill-advised double.

A. for dinner and later attended the recital given by the Y. W. C. A. Glee club. Dur- vjg the business meeting plans for the nationwide business girls' banquet were discussed. Miss Olive Hylden was a guest. \V. G. T. U. MEETING THURSDAY AT Y. W. The Rev. Ida Helgen of the Goodwill Mission will be the speaker at the W. C. T. U. meeting Thursday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock at the Y. W. C. A. Mrs. John Sloan will sing and there will be a short talk on j ihe Benedict Home for Girls. : North started the auction with one spade and after a pass East, McKeag, South, bid two hearts. West passed.and North assisted the hearts to three. He might well have rebide spades, since he had no means of knowing yet how good South's hearts were. But the assistance in hearts was enough for McKeag. With his great fit with partner's spades and two singletons, he assumed from the fact that North, who was prone to pass first hand unless fairly strong, had something in the minors. And so he bid six hearts, West doubling. West led a diamond and then, in with the ace of hearts, led a club. Two more rounds of-hearts, the last taken by the queen, left the declarer in dummy. A lead of a spade established that suit, and McKeag lost only one trick, to the ace of hearts. "Lucky stiff!" said West. "Swell bid, if I did it myself," rejoined McKeag. "If I showed assistance for spades after partner had assisted my hearts, one or the other of those suits might have been trumped by one of you guys. What was the use of tipping you off?" "You're a gambler," retorted West. "North could have bid one spade, holding five to the king-queen, four hearts to the ace-queen, the king and a low diamond and two low clubs. Then you might well have lost two tricks to minor aces before you could have taken a trick." "Says you," came back McKeag, "without realizing that that guy opposite me doesn't open the bidding first hand unless he has three quick tricks. I know him. Figure it out. If he had three quick tricks how I could have been set by an arrangement of cards." "Done," said West. "North could have held the king-queen of spades, the ace-queen of hearts, the king- queen of clubs and the king-queen of diamonds, quite a hand, and you could have lost to two aces." _*_ SNAPPY WORKERS MEET AT PORTLAND.

Advisability of Asking Child to Perform for Guests Is Questionable By BROOKE PETERS CHURCH "Now Amy, I want you to play your new piece for Mrs. Jones." Sometimes Amy would perform j very nicely. At others she would j either refuse to play at all or only i after much persuasion. ! The advisability of asking a child ] to play for people is in any event questionable. If it helps the child to gain confidence it has a certain value, but only to the child. For the listeners, unless they are interested members of the family, it is generally a very doubtful pleasure, and often causes them embarrassment when they are asked afterwards to express their appreciation. Certainly a child should never be urged to play if it shows the least unwillingness. Generally the refusal is merely a bid for attention, and the more persuasion that is used, the greater the child's success in taking the center of the stage and increasing his feeling of self-importance. The child who recites or plays or dances before an audience should understand that the whole object of his performance is, not to display virtuosity, but to give pleasure. His attention should be directed outwards towards his listeners, and not inwards towards himself. It is always a pleasure to see a child rise with ease and graciousness, give his little contribution toward the entertainment, and then retire to his place again, with no effort to do either more or less than is asked of him. No matter how indifferent his performance, his manner disarms criticism and leaves a pleasant impression. But the child who comes forward with the manner of one conferring a favor, or the arch expression of self-consciousness, or who refuses to do anything without urging 1 , or insists on playing encores when none was demanded, is always a parlor nuisance. UNION CHRISTIAN ENDEAVOR TO MEET. The Church of Christ young: people will entertain the "Union Christian Endeavor in the banquet room of the Y. M. C. A. Thursday.
