The students who are going t the state music contests r ;xt wee' might not have attained the hono roll; but they are superior in an other phase of work that require time outside of the school hours As a rule athletes don't figure o the honor roll, but much glory i brought to M. C. H. S. by thei victories. Many students who woul probably fail in composition ai v;'-ible to the Cub because the have "noses for .news." Only it Cub as well as its readers wou! lose if it demanded that the grade of its reporters attain a certai average. More personal honors can be wo than those of high grades. Th right to wear a Qu -i and Hero pin as a rewt- -1 for creative writin is one of them. The honor won b a 16 year old artist, Jacob Landa of the Overbrook high school, Phi adelphia, in the Scholastic Award contest is another. The art jui said his talents reach the pla 2 genius.

Anyone passing room 107 of M . H. S. during the last two weeks might have observed the very scant floor space being used for drama- izations of the scenes of Shake- peare's "Julius Caesar" by 3' reshmen under the direction of Miss Elizabeth H. Graves. After the reading of the drama roles were assigned and stage man agers began giving orders. Leon Blocher exercised his initiative by :urninjj out some very fine woodei swords which he silvered over with aluminum so that the killing scene; might be more effective. The freshmen previously studiei and dramatized the playwright' short comedy, "Comedy of Errors. However, the historical drama ha met with far greater approval bj the majority of the students. Roy Connelly said: "Julius Cae sar is an interesting play becaus it is based on history. France! Emmert remarked: "It was a cha lenge to our gray matter. Then too, it touched our emotions." Was "Stiff Acting." Estelle Schneider liked the dram because it required "stiff acting. Millie Negomer said, "It was fin because it was so thrilling." Juan ita Richmond commented, "Th drama stirs one. It is no fairy tal like 'Midsummer Night's Dream.' Phyllis Bemis admired the thrillln quarrel scene because the villai DEVOTED TO THE INTERESTS OF MASON CITY SCHOOLS PUBLISHED BY M. C. H. S.

Members of the cast oi' "Pomander Walk,' the senior class drama to be presented May 11, are looking forward to the time when they will be practicing on the set with "five little old-fashioned houses on the river-bank." Miss Ruth Irons, the director, is contemplating one of the most magnificent sets ever displayed in any of her presentations. The leading feminine role of the play is taken by Ardith Blackwell, as Mademoiselle Marjolaine Lache- snais with Ed Woodward playing the part of her lover, Lieutenant Honorable John Sayle. The portrayal of Madame Lucie Lachesnais, the dignified mother of Marjolaine, is taken by June Gaylord and her true, devoted lover is John Sayle, tenth Baron Otford, portrayed by Cedric Howell. Has Love Affair. The romantic element of the play is deepened by the love affair between Miss Barbara Pennymint and Basil Pringle, parts portrayed by Louise Pierce and Vergil McKee. Mrs. Pamela Poskett and Admir- ai Sir Peter Antrobus complete the quartet of devoted lovers and the portrayals are taken by Ann Adell Johnson and Walter Pitzpatrick. Miss Ruth Pcnnyraint, the sister of Barbara, . is portrayed by Leonaine Breese, and Mary Jane Gamble play the part of the Honorable Caroline Thring.

This exceptional literary work is being published in "Sapling" an annual anthology of high school writing by "Scholastic." 'Selections by winners are being reproduced in the April 28 issue of Scholastic. The project of exposing; contemporary American biographies and autobiographies is drawing to a close in room 1C 7. Even though the pr, ject has been going on for the past six weeks, it is still top-notch in the American literature classes. "Way is this project being carried on so painstakingly? There are several answers to this question. The oral and writt. reports broaden the knowledge of the students and instruct them in the lives of men and women of the nineteenth and twentieth cent---its Not only the students who read the books, but also those who hear the student's exposition of it increase their knowledge in the field of American literature. Students Rend Biographies. All students are active part in the project in the hope tha they may lead their fellow class mates to select useful and profit able books to read. By dlligentlj reading these* biographies the stu dents do not feel that it is a wast of time but one more step on th ladder of accomplishment an achievement. A glimpse at the written report reveals such reactions as the fol lowing: "Lincoln's Ufc Interesting." Vivian Arvidson: " The Life of Abraham Lincoln' by Ida Minerva Tarbell, is both entertaining and instructive." Dorothy Bittner: " 'The Hero of Vincennes' by Lowell Thomas gives vivid pen pictures. It is colorful. Many vague historical .events have been cleared for me." Martha Haddy: "Eugene O'Ncil has revealed himself to me in a simple, interesting fashion." Praises Hagedorn Book. Orria Herfindahl: "Herman Hagedorn in his 'Roosevelt in the Bad Lands' writes in an easy, conversational way in a simple, common, everyday, language. The book pleases because Mr. Hagedorn went to a great deal of trouble to unearth out-of-way happenings." Marian Sweet: '"Richard Harding Davis, His Day' by Fairfax Downey, portrays very vividly the life and work of Richard Harding Davis. It revealed to me the most human and Interesting side of his EIGHTEEN NAMED ON SUPER HONOR ROLL AT SCHOOL Members of Cub-Gazette in Minnesota Juniors Lead List With Six Numbered in Higher Scholastic Ranks. Eighteen students have made the super honor holl for the fifth six weeks period. The junior class led the holl with six representatives; the sophomores follow with five; four senior students are on the list; and three freshmen have won the coveted honor. The super honor roll students this period number five more than those of the fourth six weeks. Only four boys, Wayne Johnson, Jack MacDonald, George Tice and Martin Yoseloff have made the super roll. With the close of school only fiv. weeks away, the highest scholasti, honors are to be announced soon Who will be the 10 students having the highest scolastic honors for the entire school year? What senio: will have the highest scholastic av erage through his four 3'ears o study? Who will win the scholar ships? Time will tell.

Historical Events ClnrificG. Eunice Anderson: "I would advise only those students who wish information concerning Lincoln's political life in connection with the slavery question to read 'Set My People Free 1 by William E. Lilly. However, I do not consider it a waste of time to have read this narrative as it made many events of American history clearer to me." Ethel Fink: "Gertrude Atherton never had a more interesting heroine than herself, and her colorful style of writing makes her autobiography--'Adventures of a Novelist'--vivid, interesting reading that appeals to everyone." Thirteen Cub staff members had . e privilege of seeing the inside vorkings of the Ah La Ha Sa, paper of the Albert Lea high school, when they traveled to that city for the ournalism banquet Thursday. L. Slomquist, principal of the high school, ushered the group and Miss Slizabeth H. Graves, adviser, into ;he jouralism class room. Unlike the Mason City routine, two classes, journalism 1 and journalism 2, each course covertog one semester of work, are provided for in the curriculum. In these classes, taught by E. R. Newstrand, literary adviser, the students best qualified for getting out a newspaper are taught the fundamentals of journalism. They have a definite system of award'ing merits, and it is in this way that they qualify for Quill and Scroll. The Ah Ha Sa, a four page, printed paper, is published every three weeks. The method of getting copy to press is much the same as the one employed by the Cub staff. The paper is sent to a printer, and each edition this year costs the school $89. The paper is entirely self-supporting, as no money is set aside for it in the budget. Out of an enrollment of 630, about 400 students subscribe to the paper. Miss Clara Berdan, Latin teacher, is business manager of the publication. She is assisted by a compe- | tent business staff, whose members start when of sophomore rank, so that by the time they are seniors, they are able to cope with the business difficulties. The classroom which is much larger than our 107, has a fair sized closet, which is the "morgue" and file combined. The "morgue" contains only the more recent cuts and those used frequently, because of lack of space. At the end of each year the 12 issues or more of volume is bound In a flexible cover, and kept in a file. The Cub staff saw one unique issue, printed with two pages, red and two, blue. The girls wrote one half, and the boys the other half. The boys' half was joined upside down, giving the paper an unique appear- CANDIDATES FOR WRITING SOCIETY GIVEN APPROVAL Edward Nell, Secretary of Quill and Scroll, Writes M. C. H. S. "All candidates approved. A splendid group worthy of journalistic honor"--was the telegram received by Miss Elizabeth H. Graves Monday morning from Edward Nell, international secretary of Quill and Scroll society, informing her that 20 reporters of Cub staff are eligible for the International honorary society for high school journalists. The 20 students who are eligible to wear the gold symbol of creative writing are Veda Perkins, Irene Hoi- brook, Ruth Scott, Dorothy Griffen, Opal Ferleman, Carmen Cogill, Elizabeth Coe, Marjorie Cookman, Martha Haddy, Patricia Rose, Roger Downing, Mildred Kerdus, Edna Huff, Gale Lane, Marian Sweet, Wesley Fiala, Helen Avery, Evelyn Day, Marian Kappas and Vletta.

Although the fifth period American literature class has born most of the burden of publishing the Cub, three students of the fourth period class--Evelyn Day. Marian Kappas, and Helen Avery--have worked faithfully for the paper, and are now eligible to wear the Quill and Scroll badge. Mr. Nell in his letter of April 24, said, "I was glad to see the number of interview stories submitted.
