Miss Elizabeth H. Graves. President ot Iowa Quill and Scroll Chapter. Orchids to Vocalists The sacred concert directed by Miss Mildred Luce began with the narration of the beautiful Biblical passages from St. Luke and ended with Uie massed groups singing the "Halleluiah Chorus" from the "Messiah." It was an exceptionally, well, balanced, p r o g r a m throughout, reflecting c a r e f u l preparation. The choir sang with unity and dramatic interpretation, forming a curtain of tonal poetry for the remarkably mature soloists. The solo and the choir music were of such quality that the audience was held spellbound until the final curtain. v A striking feature of the program was the scenic tableaux of the events around Christ's birth. "The Madonna and the Child," "The Three Kings," and a "Group of Angels," were some of the outstanding ones. The tableaux, and the whole of the concert was made doubly effective by the expert stagecraft and lighting by Warren A. Ruby and the stage crew. Carols played by the orchestra' under Miss Marjorie Smith lent a nostalgic instrumental note during the tableau. The annual presentation by the vocal department has become a real tradition at M. C. H. S. It is the hope of all that such programs continue to be outstanding features of the school year. Don Brewer.

Service in Local Schools High School Principal Came to" Mason City in First World War Twenty-five years ago when World war I was at its height, James Hae came to Mason City, having accepted the principalship of both the high school and the junior college. Principal Rae has seen much progress in the Mason City high school system since that time. A great deal of credit for the progress of the high school and the college, is credited to his large \-jsion and untiring efforts in the educational field. Mr. Rae recalls that there were 729 students registered in the high school his first year--1917-'18-while in the college there were only 36. The high school at that time included four grades, while now the ninth grade is included in ,the junior high schools. The maximum enrollment experienced* by Mr. Rae in the high school was in 1937-'38 with 1,646 enrolled while that of the college was in 1940 with 274 enrolled. Principal Rae's first year in Mason City marks also the first year of the Mason City junior college, the oldest in the state, as well as the JAMES RAE present high first year in the school building. * * * Increased enrollment has caused many changes during the past 25 years under the supervision ol Principal Hae, such as modern biology rooms; larger dressing rooms for physical education; introduction of art as a major subject; mechanical instruction on up- to-date machinery; a second year of instruction in home economics, a fourth year in mathematics; personal typing and bookkeeping; consolidation of American history and government classes; development of both instrumental and vocal music to the point of national recognition for both and growth in the field of athletics, which, according to records, shows construction of two stadiums and a fine fieldhouse.

He served as a captain in the medical corps of the United States army in 1917 and '18, was made a major in the medical reserve corps in 1919. "Who's Who in America" reveals that he has served many varied groups in a public way in spite of the fact that he is but 51 years old. Instead of the usual sectional group meetings, an opportunity is offered for each section to have a luncheon meeting with speaker and time for business. The round .table groups are being combined into two large groups consisting of the grade schools--both elementary and rural--and the high school teachers--both junior and the home economics department of the high school.
