The outlined .program was intended to emphasize the various aspects at art study as conducted in the school: Lettering, appreciation, color and design, representation, nnud craftsmanship. Nearly half the children of the school participated. Parade of Pupils. The first act was a parade of pupils with cut-out letters, shoulder high, forming and reforming words and sentences appropriate to the occasion--correlating letterings with physical education work. Illustrative of appreciation were three scenes related to "The Night Watch," by Rembrandt, a copy of which hangs in the corridor of the school. The first scene represented a meeting of the company to commission Rembrandt to paint their group. In the second scene, the complete picture was represented by pupils in costume, pose, and accoutrements carefully copied from the original. The third showed the rejection of Rembrandt's painting by the guild. Bright Scene. "The Symphony of Color" was a bright scene in which the central idea was that little girls, clad in dainty garments of the various primary colors, were thrown into the mixing mill out of which came blended colors and tones. Very unusual was the number, ".In the Art Gallery." On the walls of the stage were displayed various art creations of the pupils, from tapestries to wastebaskets, and from portrait sketches to clay statuettes. A pupil acting as guide conducted other pupils and gave a running discussion o£ the materials, interrupted by questions, quite after the manner of a gallery instructor. We in the audience got the illusion of sharing these experiences, and at the same time learned about the kind of work in art the students of this school do. Story of Odyssey. The final section of the program was based on ihe story of the Olyssey, which is studied in the ninth grade of the school. There was revealed considerable originality in the way the students retold this story, in its interpretation, in the solution of numerous problems in costume, lighting, posture, and especially for the use of grotesque masks. AHhough the program was an outgrowth of the regular work o£ several, months, it lasted but little over one hour. Except for a few sentences of welcome from th principal, only the children appeared in this program. ROCKFORD COUPLE TO BE MARRIED HOCKFORD--Banns of marriage were announced for the first time at Holy Name Catholic church for Miss Juanita Rottinghouse, daughter of-,Mr. and Mrs. Jake Rottinghouse of Carlersville, and Charles Engles, son of Mr. and Mrs. August Engles of Rockford.

A large crowd attended the first of three major performances o£ Friml's operetta, "The Vagabond King" at the high school auditorium Tuesday evening. A second presentation was scheduled for Wednesday evening and the third, for teachers, Friday evening. No one will question but that "The Vagabond King" is an ambitious undertaking for high school students, but those who saw and heard Tuesday night's showing will agree that Miss Ellen Smith and her assistants succeeded in moulding a successful performance. The work of individual high school boys and girls, the mobilization of large groups into interesting tableaux, the singing, the costuming, staging and other phases of the operetta made a performance that must be termed most creditable for high school students.

HOUSE OPPOSED TO NEW BOARDS Turns Down Bill to Create Unsalaried Geographic Commission. DES MOINES, \/P)--Iowa house republicans and democrats joined forces Wednesday to turn thumbs down on the creation of new boards or bureaus. Voting 83 to 11 the chamber voted defeat for a measure to create an unsalaried geographic commission whose chief duty would be the assigning of official names o£ Iowa's numerous lakes. Sponsored by the house committee on conservation, it proposed to create a new setup o£ three members including the director of the conservation commission, the state geologist and the president of the state historical society. Rep. Ed R. Brown (H) of Des Moines, led the assault but found support in many democrats including Rep. P. C. Rasmussen (D) ol Council Bluffs, who told the house "if you give them this, they'll be back 2 years from now with a claim and you'll have to pay it." Brown denounced the bill as "the opening wedge for new boards and commissions. They will tie themselves on now without salary but eventually you will have to pay them," he warned. The house then defeated a measure to require full train crews on all trains, passenger or freight, of less than 5 cars, and a bill to revise the method of electing state fair board directors by requiring nominations and elections by districts. Consideration of the train crew bill drew out references to the "railroad lobby," while deliberation of the state fair bill hinged upon an appeal to "put the state fair management back in the hands of the people." Dr. Basingcr President. GOLDFIELD -- The Goldfield board of education held the initial meeting of the year on Monday evening at which time the boarc reorganized. Dr. B. L.
