Vol. V May 5 No. XXHl COMMERCIAL ASSETS The recent commercial contesl makes one question as to the benefit ·'of shorthand and typing to the students who do not intend, to fill secretarial positions. Typing is a most useful accom plishment for a student in college For example, a 1,500 word theme is quickly typed by nimble fingers bj an expert typist like Dorothy Bitt ner, first place winner in the con test. The red pencils of stern profes S ors pause above a well typed page and crash down on a page covered ·with scrawly hand-writing. If .the typewritten page of a theme is incomplete in thought, it too. will suffer red marks. When f professor is lecturing, a studen who who can take down each vita point in shorthand has a distinc advantage. Although Ann Allos first place winner in the short-ban contest, may never be a steno grapher, her proficiency in short hand will be a distinct asset to her And if these student winners never type or use shorthand again the discipline itself in conquering errors in typing and in forming per feet figures .in shorthand is a train' ing that is invaluable.

CUft OAZtTTE "Pomander Walk" Senior Class Play Friday evening, May 11 DEVOTED TO THE INTERESTS OF MASON CITY SCHOOLS PUBLISHED BY M. C. H. S. STUDENTS PRINCIPALS IN SENIOR PRODUCTION Junior High Will Present Own Review "Back Through the Years," an original musical review in seven scenes, is to be presented May 18 at the high school auditorium by the Lincoln junior high school students. The review beginning with the present gives one a clear conception of music from the early times down to the present. The seven scenes, contemporary, World war, immigration, plantation, white house ball, Indian anc Viking scenes portray outstanding incidents in American history. The theme of the initial scene i sports, and consists of a sport dance chorus and a vocal trio composec of Veda Kimry, Clarench Rush and Clark Sweetser. Other numbers in this scene are a vocal duet by Phyllis Neelings and Melvin Ferr and a toe dance by Evelyn Schoehl. In the second scene a conversation is carried on by soldiers just before going over the "top." A chorus composed of 15 boys provide music for the scene. The immigration scene opens with a sailor dance chorus. composed of 20 boys and, girls featuring Dorothy Mickey in a sailor tap dance. Annie OFFICE CAT ON WHY HURRY? I am so often reminded, and especially these days, of that old saying "those in the biggest hurry have no place to go." All the students are so eager for the school year to close--what do they have to look forward to? The majority of them have only long hot summer afternoons or the tedious task of getting tan without first passing through the stage of blistering sun-burn, and then there are always daily tasks. Of course there will be no studying to be done, but you know "the busiest people are the happiest." Why not make the best of these last 20 days of school (15 days for the seniors) by keeping our work "up" and our foolishness "down." You'll find it pays. --H. D. F. Pappas and George Zanlos present a typical Greek dance. The Negro spirituals with a colorful southern background make up the plantation scene. The white house ball is a scene typical of colonial times. A chorus of 20 boys sing stirring Norman songs which include the Viking scene.
