L. Stewart praised them by saying, "The conductors did very well, considering the short time they had to rehearse their numbers. Each ' oonductor actually rehearsed but three or four times." ·'-, The intonation was not as good ·as it should have been and at times a lack of precision was -noted. Slany directors from other towns and former members of the high school hand, now home from college, enjoyed the concert, as did a large and appreciative audience. ; THE ALUMNI GAME !

Remarking on another historical phase, Mrs. Naylor said, "King George granted this unique feature of nature to Thomas Jefferson in 1774, and it remained in his family until 1833. Continuing up Valley Pike highway to Lexington, Mrs. Naylor was interested in the chapel of the Washington and Lee university founded by Washington.

TIME OUT By DAVE KAUFMAN Last week-end saw the opening of the winter sports program by high school athletic representatives and while Mohawk teams won one, lost one and tied in their contests, the showing put on by the local cagers was far below expectations. * * * Coach Howard T. Barker's mat squad reaped all early season honors as they upset the dope and held a strong Clarion squad to a 21-21 tie. Six veterans bolstering the Cowboy squad were the chief reasons for giving Clarion an edge in the meet while the Mohawks' squad with only four grapplers who had ever engaged in meets before, was doped as the weaker team. · We can hardly refrain from using the- time-worn expression thnt the tie was a "moral victory" for Conch Barker's pro- teges Inasmuch as Clarion, ivhlch counts on wrestling us one of its mainstays in sports circles, could not register a win over Mason City's "sophomore squad," * * « LeRoy Mott, all-North Iowa grid- der personally made It his second victory over Clarion. Playing on the football team which decisioned Clarion 6 to 0 last fall, the Mohawk mat artist pinned a Clarion grid star, Caret Mosher. Harold Leahe, another Mohawk linesman, made short work of Clarion's gridder- hope for the heavyweight class, throwing the big Kennedy in 1:08. More power to Coach Barker and his surprising grapplers. A few victories this season will put Mason City on the high school wrestling map of Iowa. * * * And for those "rassling'' fans who have witnessed the "professional" exhibitions, but have never seen simon-pure grapplers in action, we will drop a line of explanation about the mat sport. Amateur wrestling lacks the flying mares, strangle holds, fighting, gouging and other delights of the professional sport, but if a mat fan wants to see some real wrestling, which he can be assured is on the level and has not been rehearsed, he should take in the mat meets which will be held at the high school in the near future. You won't see any grandstanding pachyderms but we believe that you (Turn to rage n FACULTY PLANS MANY TOURS ON CHRISTMAS WEEK Miss Bullock to See Lookout Mountain; Rugland to Attend Meeting.
