SIX MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 193G GAY NINETIES PREFERRED PERIOD IN PRIZE VAUDEVILLE ACTS Phoenician Club Given First Place Grade Teachers Win Seconc With Song and Dance Act at High School. The gay nineties were the favored period at the competitive vaudeville sponsored Tuesday evening at the high school auditorium by the Parent-Teacher council, the prizes going to acts representative of that period. First place went to the Phoenician club for its one act play, "Gimme Them Papers," and second to the Grade Teachers association for "Follies of '36." - · The Phoenician skit, directed by Miss Margaret Rule, was a parody on the old time melodrama, in which the villian ("curses, how I love to curse") played by Bee Lynch and the rag time vamp, Eleanor ·Irons (Mae West to you), conspired to get the papers from Patricia punque, the perfect peach, Mary Gould, and handsome Harry, the hero, Irene Holman. They were aided by the Cheerful Cherub, Eleanor McLaughlin. Get Moral Support. Miss Merianna Sheffler provided the accompaniment and the actors received moral support from their fellow club members, who attired ir costumes of the nebulous nineties, hissed the villain and the vamp, cheered the hero and wept for the heroine. Musical numbers, popular in the lamented decade, were revived in a spirited manner by the . Grade Teachers under the direction of Miss Helen Green. Singing "We Don't Want to.Get Married, We're Having too Much Fun," the teachers, bonneted and bustled, executed the daring dance steps of the period they represented, with musical accompaniment from an old organ played by Mildred Keith. In the group were Miss Keith, Celeste Siglin, Mary Ellen Lydon. Helen Massey, Ruth Wilson, Ruth Smith, Rachel Currough, Rosalie Greenwait, Lana Hiles and Miss Green. All Acts Amusing. There were six other acts in the show and all of them were entertaining and provided an amusing evening for the crowd which attended the performance. Members of the Roosevelt-Jackson and Madison P. T. A. gave a minstrel chorus, reviving the old time minstrel show with/ a few modern touches. Th'e Elks' Glee club, sponsored by the' Jefferson,P. T. A,, sang "The · Two : Grenadiers," "The tittle Red Drum" and "The Ranger Song-." The Junior Chamber of Commerce presented C. K. Kinney who gave a group of readings.

Dried Beef Is Good Friend of Busy Housewife By ANN KINGSLEY Dried beef is- an universal favorite with families because it always seems to "hit the spot" and with homemakers because it can be depended upon for emergency meals as well as hurry up meals. By the time dried beef reaches the hememaker's cupboard it has been trimmed, allowed to stand in a brine and finally smoked and dried so that every bit of the meat which the housewife takes home with her is edible. The fact that it has been dried and smoked makes it easy to keep on hand and also a very concentrated form of protein. In fact, dried beef is nearly all protein for the fat and moisture content of the meat has been removed in the processing. Meat protein is very necessary in the family diet for it builds up the tissue which is constantly being broken down by every-day activities. New Ways With Old Favorite There are innumerable ways in which'to serve dried beef, many of which you no doubt'know. However, here are several recipes, some of which are old-time favorites and some that are new and rather different. Have you ever browned the dried beef in a little melted butter before adding it to whatever recipe you are making? This browning en. lances the flavor greatly and makes an even more delicious finished product. 'reamed Eggs and Chipped Beef on Toast 4 pound chipped beef 4 hard-cooked eggs, 2 tablespoons fat 2 tablespoons flour 2 cups milk '/i teaspoon onion juice ,i teaspoon pepper 6 slices hot buttered toast.

Cook until eggs are heated through and turn out on to buttered toast and serve at once. Creamed Dried Beef Shortcake Prepare hot baking powder biscuits 3 inches in diameter, split, butter, and fill with freshly creamed dried beef.

MYERS, PH. D. Ch'ld Training Authority. A number of years ago two eminent educators ran a series of experiments on the learning of spelling. Although their experiments were "full of holes," which some of us frequently pointed out, they announced that their studies had proved conclusively the superiority of the pretest method of teaching spelling. These Pied Pipers, with the assistance of several publishers of spellers based on their conclusions, soon had nearly all the teachers of this country teaching by this method. My readers must know it. A list of words is pronounced, say, on Monday. The children are to try to spell as many as they can. Those they spc-II wrong, they are to study during the week, to be tested again on Friday. You see, they study no word until they have first spelled it wrong. Discarding Method. Here is what Prof. Frederick S. Breed, of Chicago university, writes about it in the January issue of Childhood Education: "The present method is being discarded in the primary grades because experiments do not attest its superiority. In grades two and three this method, otherwise known as the test-study method, has been found inferior to the older study- test procedure. This finding is not altogether surprising wnen one reflects that the test-study method presupposes ability on the part of pupils to do effective independent study." And he might have added, "since also the test-method practices the learner in making mistakes." In the long rum, educational investigations seem to square with common sense; when they don't we had better assume that the conclusions had been drawn before all the evidence was in. Basic Rule. On the. basis of common sense, refined by what seems to be the best known psychological principles of learning, this one basic rule should be our best guide in helping a child learn to spell: "Try to keep the child from ever spelling a word wrong. Do all you can to help him always spell it right, and get satisfaction from doing so." Accordingly, we shall lead him, a9 he studies, first to look calmly at the word, written in bold clear print or script, which he is learning to spell, to say the letters over slowly in right sequence while looking at the word carefully, repeating the process often enough to guarantee that he can sp«ll the word without looking at it; making sure, of course, to connect the letter-sequence in his mind with the pronunciation and meaning of the word. For example, as he looks at the word ready, he will say to himself, 'Ready, r-e-a-d-y; ready r-e-a-d-y; ready, r-e-a-d-y," over and over, not venturing to look away from the word or to try himself out before lie feels sure he ca.n spell it accurately alone, and feeling wholly free to look back at the original word whenever he feels the slightest doubt about its spelling. As he discovers that he has succeeded with this word, he can, with confidence, attack the next word. Minnesota Couples Get Licenses to Wed NORTHWOOD--Marriage licenses reported for the week ending March 3 were issued to Leonard H. Harmon and Myrtle Gable, both of Lake Mills; Arthur Manuel and Bernice Bennett, both of Minneapolis; Robert L. Norcross, Des Moines, and Ruth M. Lichtenstein, Manly; Lloyd Roush and Twilla Gillson, both of Austin; Charles R. Alexander and Sylvia Jokela, both of St. Paul; Linn D. Pixley and Evelyn T. Sage, both of Northwood; Leonard P. Dietrich, Manly, and Evelyn Moretz, Kensett. Three Minnesota couples secured marriage licenses and were wed here on Saturday, Feb. 29, but none of j the three brides of that day would i admit that the wedding was the result of a leap year proposal. Leonard Dietrich Weds Evelyn Moretz at Home Ceremony MANLY--A wedding took place in the farm home of Mr. and Mrs. Carl H. Dietrich, five and one-half miles west of Manly on March 2. when their son, Leonard, was married to Miss Evelyn L. Moretz. daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Heister C. Moretz, whose farm residence is located about four miles north of the Dietrich place. The ring service of the Lutheran church was read by the Rev. George G. Parker of Manly and the couple was attended by Mr. and Mrs. Raymond L. Lee, brother-in-law ana sister of the bridegroom. The wedding march was played by Miss Grace Rumbly of Manly, who sang "Oh Promise Me." The bride wore a gown of white silk crepe and carried pink roses, sweet peas and freesia. The bridesmaid's gown was of pink silk crepe. A color scheme of pink «nd white was carried out in the home decorations and refreshments. Those present were the immediate relatives and a few friends. The couple will reside in the Dietrich home and the bridegroom will continue to assist his father in the management of the farm. ,j.._ ONTKACT DUPLICATE CLUB HOLDS MEETING Plans for the semi-finals of the Contract Duplicate club were made at the last regular tournament of :he season at the Hotel Hanford. dinner preceded play.
