Proceeds from parties, dances and special movies, in nuVncrous instances, have been donated to the Red Cross for flood relief. Some Iowa newspapers arc publishing names of donors and radio stations arc broadcasting donations to "stimulate giving."

Red Cross said they would continue to welcome contributions until the national office gives a "stop" order.

"Spirit" Subject of Lesson-Sermon in Science Church Here "Spirit" was the subject of the Lesson-Sermon in Ihe Church Gf Christ, Scientist, on Sunday. The Golden Text was from II Corinthians 3:18, "We all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, arc changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by Ihe Spiril of Ihe Lord." The Lesson-Sermon comprised quotations from the Bible and from the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. One of the Bible citations reads: "And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and lhat I am the Lord your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed. And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old mon shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: And also upon Ihc servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit." (Joel 2:27-29). Among the selections from thp Christian Science textbook was the following: "Let us learn of the real and eternal, and prepare for Ihe reign of Spirit, the kingdom of heaven,--the reign and rule of universal harmony, which cannot be lost nor remain forever unseen" (p. 208).

Millie has manifested a very versatile career during her junior and senior high school years. Perhaps, her most outstanding ability in the extra-curricular program of the high school has been in art. Showed Innate Talent. "Millie in her second grade work at Grant school showed a remarkable innate talent in art," said Miss Eulalie Turner of the Iowa Slate Teachers college in June, 193G, when she examined Millie's art work at the high school with Mrs. Harriet B. Crabb, instructor in the local school. Miss Turner at that time said, "Both Leon Tokman and Millie in the second grade vied for honors in blackboard drawings before P. T. A. meetings and I thought then, in 1927, when I supervised work at Grant school that if given half a chance both children would go far in art." . Leon of the class of 1936 is nnvv enrolled in Hie Art Institute of Minneapolis and Millie plans after graduation in June to enter the same institute. In her sophomore year MilJic produced her large mural on canvas with crayonet entitled, "Spirit of Mason City," the story of which was printed in June 193n. The central figure is Mason Cily while on her left are dcpicled Mason City industries and the professions on the right. As assistant art editor ot the Masonian, 1936, Millie sketched many of the 96 portraits that constituted the Hall of Fame pages of the volume. She was one of the eight representative students clec- ed by the student body last year and Ihe book credits her with manifesting a "smile and hard work that made her outslanding.'' Made Decorations. She was responsible for designing tlie decorations--animals of all descriptions made of plaster board --for the junior-senior banquet in May, 193G. She and her committee carried out the theme--circus. Miss ^-rothy. Pagenharl, sponsor for 2 banquet, says, "Millie manifested exceptional executive ability in slaying by Ihc decoration project until all was complete." Millie, who plays the violin, has been a member of Hie M. C. H. S. orchestra for four years and lias done her part in making the insti- lulion a national winner. In her junior year Millie had one of the leading roles in "The Phantom Dirigible," directed by Miss Ruth A. Irons, dramatic coach.

She was one of the delegates to the Iowa High School Press convenlioi in Iowa City in October and merited second place in writing advertising copy. She also attended the National Scholastic Press convention in Detroit in December. While there Millie denied herself a sighi seeing trip in order to spend fom hours in the Art Institute. Instructors Comment. Millie is a member ot the Greek Orthodox, church of Mason City However, both parents were born in Serbia, but they attend the Greek synagog as there is no Serbian church in Mason City. Two of her instructors in recommending her as a D. A. H. representative commented as follows Mrs, Harriet B. Crabb, instructor ot art, says,. "Millie has unusual originality and a genuine creative ability. She is remarkable ii that she will stay with a production until it is completed cvei though in Ihc process of its making she gels another idea tha seems better to her." Miss Marjorie Smith, director o strings, who has instructed Milll tor five years says she is a failh ful, conscientious worker in th first violin section and one who i, always with her instructor i n ' a determination to make good."--N J.
