S. Music Mothers Sponsor Performance Wednesday Evening. The High School Mothers' cluh will sponsor the presentation of two one 'act plays, "The Birthday of the Infanta," and "El Cristo," Wednesday evening at 8:15 o'clock in the high school auditorium as a benefit for the music students of the high school. The plays which are under the direction of Miss Ruth Irons, are two which were sent to Iowa City for the play production contest and although they did not place in the competition, they were both well performed and received commendation from those who saw them. Suited to Season. "El Cristo" is particularly suited for performance during holy week. Its theme is based on the historic Spanish custom, first performed 300 years ago by which one member of a religious community was chosen to bear the crucifixion for the crimes of his people. Through the years, the practice degenerated until it came to be a process by which political influence could be attained. The scene of "El Cristo" is a secret meeting place of the Los Penitentes, just outside of Taos, N. M., on Good Friday in 1925. The cast includes Jose Valdes, a young Mexican, Thomas Gregory; Manuel Valdez, his uncle, Robert Bigg; his father, Harold Grier; his mother, Katherynne Trissel; Rosalia, his sweetheart. Kathleen McCormick; Ricardo, Louis Kauffman. Infanta's Birthday. "The Birthday of the Infanta" is Stewart Walker's version of Oscar Wilde's play celebrating the Infanta's twelfth birthday and resulting in the tragic death of her birthday entertainer. Harriet Currie takes the part of the Infanta of Spain and the Indies; Mary Jane Pauley. the Duchess of Albuquerque; LeRoy Anderson, the Fantastic; Charles Chenoweth, the Lord Chamberlain; Frank Conway, the Count of Tierra Nueva; Truman Cadwell, Don Pedro of Arragon; Otto Toppenberg and Ralph Anderberg, pages.

Dealer for Mason City Clear Lake Nora Springs Manly jirl Baby Often Begins Life Handicapped Since Her Parents Wanted Son By BKOOKE PETERS CHURCH. Mary started life as a disappointment. Her parents had wanted a ooy, and when the answer to their hopes and prayers turned out a girl, .heir ambition received a severe blow. Even as a tiny child Mary w and resented her parents' at- itude. To be sure, both her father, and mother loved her, but not with quite the same intensity with which hey loved the little boy u who followed. Secretly Mary longed to be a boy. As she grew older she often would teal her brother's clothes and wear hem, preferring the freedom they jave her to the greater restraint of iven her most masculine garments. Though she became normal in ime, she was never a particularly happy or contented child, and the elationship between her parents and herself was never sympathetic. That in this day and generation f equal rights and opportunity for iren and women, the old and out- vorn prejudice in favor of boys ;hould continue is one of the exam- iles of the persistence of tradition in the face of commonsense. It might be reasonable in a ma-i, who hopes for a companion and play- fellow in a son, but for women to continue to cultivate the tradition seems absurd. The birth of one small girl was hailed by her grandmother as. a tragedy, and the child had some difficulty in gaining her affection. Â· There is no real excuse for such a point of view, and it often workE real hardship and suffering on the helpless victim, who feels herself'a Cailure before she has really begun life. In point of fact, if mothers only knew it, an older sister can b e ' 3 great help to her brothers and is far more likely to find them companionable than is generally the case when the boy is the first born.
