STUDENTS SPRING Spring to tHe poet means the time when small blades of green grass shoot up defying · the cold ·winds, or the time when tiny flowers peep out from under dead leaves .to see if Jack Frost has left the cold dreary world to their tender keeping. But to girls spring means skates, tennis rackets, marbles, bicycles,' discarded fur .coats, and, best of all, spring vacation. · Spring vacation is as an oasis to the weary traveler in the Sahara desert; it affords a short rest period from the steady grind of school books. But listen. Are those groans we hear? Ah yes, some of the mothers have enlisted the aid of their reluctant but dutiful sons and daughters in the annual spring Cleaning. However, with the exc'ep- tion of these few unfortunates, we all welcome spring with open and eager arms, and await with joyous anticipation spring vacation.

Marionettes Is Hobby of H.S.Student By OPAL FERI/EMAN. As her chief hobby Mary Shoemaker, a sophomore of M- C. H. S., works with marionettes. "I first became interested in mar- onettes about five years ago. My uncle, who is an art teacher at Ames junior high school and has worked with Mrs. Jean Marsh Wright, former art teacher of Lincoln school, encouraged my interest n marionettes. As her pupil I started constructing marionettes. My ! irst were about three feet high. At iresent my marionettes are about me foot high and I make them from dolls bought at the downtown stores," says Mary. Has Staged Plays. Mary has staged several plays with her marionettes. When a freshman she worked out the historical jrose story "Courtship of Miles Standish" for a performance in Miss Cora Suudell's English class. "Little Red Riding Hood" and "Lady of the Lake" have also been worked out by Mary. When questioned as to what furnished the greatest inspiration in the perfection of her marionettes, Mary replied "In my visit- to the Centennial Exposition in Chicago last summer, I had the privilege of seeing a performance of Tony Sarg's marionettes in 'Alice in Wonderland.' As I watched the manipulation of the dolls, I was surprised by the smoothness of their movement The costumes of the dolls were so perfect that my own seemed very crude in comparison. I gained much information and new ideas from this observation as I had gained much of my information on marionettes from library books."
