The Mason City high school vocal department has found occasion to produce a number of them, Tuesday evening staging "The Gondoliers" or "The King of Barataria" in the high school auditorium. . Under the direction of Miss Smith, the students performed the tuneful -music in a lively and entertaining manner.
