MY TRIP TO DETROIT By BETTY SENNEFF Being an Account of the Journey of Tvi'o Mason City High School Girls, the Writer and Catherine Curtiss to Detroit for the National high school Chorus Concert. The hardest part of going away | or any trip Is saying goodbye to riends. That certainly was the ard part for me. After the good- yes were said, and the train start- d, we went immediately to our erths. That was a new experience or me and of course great fun. The first real thrill that I re- eivecl was arriving at the Union lation in Chicago. I had never secu uch a station before and it was eally a dream come true. It is very asy to lose yourself in such a uilding--really a city in itself. Got Second Thrill. The Eecond thrill was the arrival it Detroit, and being taken to the hotel. I could hardly realize that at ast I was situated in the place that I had beeix thinking and planning about for over two months. We had irrived in Detroit in late afternoon md spent the evening in straighteu- ng up our rooms, eating supper and hen going up town to a movie. The next morning we all had to register at the city college, which was about five minutes walk from our lotel, the Palmetto. In the afternoon came the most exciting experience of the whole rip--the first rehearsal. It was even more wonderful than the final concert. You cannot imagine how it elt to look around the great audi- .orium and see the 530 strange faces from all over the United States. Dr. Hollis Dann, the director, was introduced an he proved tc be the kind of man who receives immediate attention. There were three rehearsals every day, starting with Friday, but wo managed to get in a movie once in a while. The boys, who were staying at the Webster hotel, seemed AMERICAN CLUB COUNCIL VOTES SCHOLAR FUNDS Five Dollars Will Be Added to Legion and Auxiliary Scholarships. The American club council will . _ meet Tuesday evening nt 7:30 tcTprefer the lobby of the Palmetto, I o'clock in the library assembly SEWING CLASSES ARE PREPARING COSTUMES FOR CLUB OPERETTA and with the help of several talented pianists, one could get all tha dancing he wished for. Broadcasting Was New. ' Broadcasting over the radio was something new in thrills, and also a trial, because it is difficult torso many young people to keep perfectly quiet. After broadcasting, we Lad the evening to ourselves, aud used it in dancing at the Webster botel. Tuesday was the night of the big concert and the great auditorium of the Shrine temple was filled with more than 5,000 educators from ail parts of the country. The girl choiis- ters were all dressed in light, afternoon or evening formals and th 1 . 1 boys in evening dress. Dr. Dann gave a dance for us in the ball room of the Temple. We from Mason City were to leave that, night at 12:30, and altho it was rather a trial to leave the dance, it seemed very nice to get home. TIME OUT! B.V DAVID KAUFMAN _The B squad game with the West Waterloo seconds Friday closed a very successful season for the Little Mohawks. The West high seconds met a Mason City team earlier in the season. It is regrettable that tue high school authorities failed to make arrangements to send several wresc- lers to Cresco for the meet held there last week. There are several Mohawk mat man who have developed into excellent wrestlers and, no doubt, would have made creditable showings at Cresco. Suter and. Grelk, Mohawk forward and center, have been fighting it out evenly for scoring honors during the entire season. Only ;i few points in the scoring- columa separate the pair of stars. "Ham" Vascy, former Mohawk eager, has made the Springfield, 311., high school basketball team. After playing the first part of the cage season as a sub, Ham was promoted to the varsity team. Springfield high has a splendid record this year and plays some of the largest high schools in Illinois. The school ie a member of the Big 12 conference. "Nice work, Ham!" The Midland cage team, captained by Harrison Kohl, trounced the Park theater quintet of Clear Lak i 51-31 in a rough and tumble basketball game at the high school Thursday night. The Midland team is made up mostly of high school boys who are not out for basketball. It is extremely likely s that a wrestling meet will be held some time in the near future between Mason City wrestlers and Clarion mat men. Sub-District Music Contest Will Be Held Mason City entrants in the vocal ixnd piano contests are preparing tor the nub-district meeting to be held "here on March 29 in the high school auditorium. Those taking part will he: Piano, Jean Swift; soprano, Maxine Beerman; alto, Rheon Woodward; tenor, Ernest Hutchins; baritone, Ken Leonard. Frank Piersol will be the accompanist. Those who are successful v'lll go to the district contest which will be held in April at Estherville.

"Judge" Grimsley and Don Gilbert attended the Northwestern- Minnesota game at Minneapolis Monday. Commenting on the game Judge said that Northwestern, Big Ten champion team, has the best cage team he has ever seen on thu basketball court. The high school coach says Reiff, leading Big Ten scorer, could make the high school .earn. Nr kidding, Judge? As the basketball season draws .o a. close, sport followers of high school activities look to the next and most successful school sport-track. The Mohawks will be hand- capped this year because of the lack of an indoor track. The former one was removed to make way for new set of lockers and a band room. room to take up the recommendations mnde by the executive board at its meeting last Wednesday. Tha board decided to divide the $10 which was voted by the club last fall for scholarship money. Five dollars will be added to the Legion scholarship for a high school senior boy and $5 will be given toward the auxiliary fund to be presented to a senior girl. This money will be dou- nted each year and it is to be applied in the Junior college. The board proposed three amendments which will be discussed at the council meeting and referred 1,1 the club for its vote. The first is that the term of council members be extended to one year and in tho fall, when the juniors are elected, each pair of council members from each class draws lots to delermind which will go out of office 'in tin: following February. The second proposed amendment states that the officers be elected in February, that they hold office until the following; February aud that they be juniors. That the executive board shall be made up of the club officers and nine seniors, electee! in the fall, is the third amendment. This also grants the veto power to the board. The judicial board will remain as it is. The committee in charge of the display of curios to be shown in the faculty room of the high school was instructed to procure more information on the subject. It was decided that the exhibit will be carly i in April. The sewing classes under Miss O'Leary have finished all the costumes for the first act of the operetta, "The Fortune Teller," to be given by the glee cluoa March 37 and 10, under the direction of Miss Ellen Smith. There are 2-1 girls in the first act representing the four parts of the day, dawn, noon, evening and night. In this ballad the costumes are of tarleton, light pink, deep blue, to medium blue spangled with sliver stars. The coatumea are designed by Miss Hyland's classes. The planning of the costumes for the second act has been started. In the ^gypsy s-cene in the second act, the costumes are picturesque, as they are designed to be colorful, rough and tattered. But even with this handicap, the Mohawks have a chance of doing a feat which should be unequalled by any high school in Iowa for many years, that of winning the state championship three successive- years. The 1931 track team will have exactly the same members that brot the last title to Masou City. These arc: Leonard Kenney, state champion hurdler; Harrison Kohl, one of the best half milers in the state, and weight man of Kenney and Kohl earned enough points between themselves to take the championship without further aid last year. Parrott made the balance of the points in the weight class. Kohl and Kenney also helped bring the 1929 title here. Trojun Review. Following is the Trojan, record o£ the 1930-31 scheduled season.
